I am currently playing a 8 player hot seat game. If you save a lot it works fairly well, but you may have to reload quite a bit (In all fairness I had similar problem with the original game even before vcmi existed). Seems decent for the most part though. Compared to version 0.98 where I couldn’t even get random scenario generator to work it’s an awesome improvement~ congratz and kudos to developers!
As a side note I was curious as to how difficult it would be to add on a white player 9 and black player 10 (or visa versa or some other colors)… I just figure since there are 10 main towns now, why not have 10 players.
