Posted: 2013-02-01, 10:33   VCMI 0.91 Release!  

Hello,
we are proudly releasing VCMI 0.91. This build brings significant improvements to modding. Finally, after years of development and endless trials, adding new towns to the game is possible. Moreover, it's all quite easy and convenient! It includes already existing support for new creatures, but now also hero classes, heroes themselves and external dwellings. Just check Cove package that adds new factions known from Horn of The Abyss mod.

However, creation of new town may still be somewhat time consuming. For those modders who would like to enjoy new content immediatelly, there is another feature - new artifacts. Adding a large amount of available aryifacts to the game is quick and enjoyable. See Witchking Artifacts Pack for example of endless possibilities it gives. People interested in modding may find our Wiki articles helpful.

Other new features include improved adventure AI, first revealed version of Random Map Generator (though not really playable yet) and loading screen. All these things make VCMI closer to complete Shadow of Death game.

For the bugreports that we resolved in this release, please check the bugtracker changelog.

Check items implementation status for the full information about which map objects, town structures, skills, spells, artifacts, creature abilities and victory conditions are supported.

Download Links:
* Windows package (Win32, 8MB, ZIP Archive)
* OS X package (39MB, DMG package)
* Linux: Packages and installation instructions (wiki page).

* List of currently available mods ready for download and install. Just extract packages inside Mods/ folder.

Linux packages:

Installation:
Extract the package into your main Heroes folder. If you have older version of VCMI, delete it first.
WoG 3.58f or ERA is required. We recommend using English version, though VCMI should also work with other language versions. If you want to make your H3 installation English, extract this package into Data/ subfolder.

***


Save format has been changed, savegames from previous versions won't work with 0.91.

VCMI supports 800x600, 1024x600, 1024x768, 1280x800, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1366x768, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1080 and 1920x1080 screen resolutions. To switch default resolution in system settings window click “HIGH” button and select resolution (available only in game). As for now custom resolution is only applied when the map is started.

Acknowledgements:
Many thanks for all testers and developers who contributed to this build.

***

Asgraf, You'll need to wait for beegee to update them. I handle .deb's while beegee handles rpm's

Surprise, surprise! RPM packages for VCMI 0.9.1 are available and links are updated on the wiki. As we provide more and more features with the current VCMI release, RPMs are generated for the previous fedora versions as well for the first time. This gives us: Fedora17 (32 + 64 Bit) and Fedora 18(32 + 64 Bit). Packages are tested. Enjoy it!

@Warmonger: Now you can update main post regarding linux packages. Thanks.

I've builded OS X package as well: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1777581/vcmi-0.91.dmg
Please add it to the main post either.
Bts isn't it a bad idea to provide direct dropbox links instead of uploading files to vcmi.eu and providing vcmi.eu links?

I'd rather keep Linux section as it - "please visit wiki page".

Oh - and remove "Linux packages to follow." phrase.

Probably it's better to keep link than just list 10 different packages in a post.

Than at least please add OS X Package and link for it. It's installation is pretty easy so we don't need wiki page for it.
