Posted: 2014-07-01, 18:45   VCMI 0.96 released!

We are happy to announce next release, VCMI 0.96. This version brings many new features and improvements.

Old spells can be configured, new spells can be added in mods. Refer to Spell Format for details.
Launcher now supports submods and more detailed info. Refer to Modding changelog for all the details.
Random map generator was significantly advanced. It is not complete yet, though you may want to watch generated maps with vcmieagles cheat. Unfortunatelly, you can't play them.
Last but not least, adventure map objects have undergone major rework. This allows to add and replace new graphics for adventure objects and opens up future modding possibilities.

All the features mentioned are advancing and will be improved in upcoming version. Our team has grew significantly, past month was the most active month in our repository ever. Thanks to all developers and testers who contributed to this build, especially the new ones :).

Anyone missing new VCMI release for Fedora? I switched from Fedora to Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu), so I can't provide RPM builds. Perhaps there is someone else who wants to create RPM builds...

Hi. Sorry for delay. Current status of 0.96 on Linux:
Source: uploaded to vcmi.eu, link on wiki.
Ubuntu: done
Debian: will try to run builds in a few days. It seems that I broke something on my system so I can't generate builds for Debian ATM.
Fedora: see beegee post above.

Other distributions: they are not maintained by members of our team so updating is not up to us.

Is there a bug for the following:

2 Visions 0
3 View Earth 0
4 Disguise 0
5 View Air 0

I'm curious why they haven't been implemented, and how I might help (for instance, is it time, or a technical reason?).

Thank you for all the hard work.

Hi.

Visions and Disguise - mostly time. I think it is completely possible to implement them right now. The only possible problem is AI - not sure how AI should react to disguise.

View Air/Earth - technical issue. We still don't have that "map overview screen" because there is no easy way to scale adventure map. I guess can be implemented after transition to SDL2.

If you know c++ - then you can try to implement visions/disguise and submit pull request on github. Othervice - we always need testing. Just run game, look for bugs, submit them on bugs.vcmi.eu.
