Update to the interim release. Mostly fixes for non-automated play.
* Move to Bottom of Deck added
* Rewrote first player selection method. Now determines player
before cards are drawn.
* Fixed Mulligan and Random Discard
* Fixed the ability to exhaust Support cards
* Added the ability to refresh all (if you have Turn/Phase animations on
this is automatic)
* Worked out several card automations. Most of The Agency in Core Set now works.
Call of Cthulhu 126.96.36.199 has been released!
Right now, most of the automations, which are still a work in progress, are disabled. Feel free to turn them on and play around with the way the game plays, but understand that the features are still in beta. As I get the automations coded, I’ll be making these enabled by default, but in the meantime, here’s a playable (I believe) version, that contains Terror in Venice.
As always, if you spot any glaring (or not glaring) errors, please let me know!
I’d like some input from CoC players:
As you can see in the pictures, I’ve got domains set up at the bottom center of the play area. I’ve also left two extra spots for additionally played domains. I’m toying with the idea of placing the domains horizontally to the left of the player’s play area instead. My thought is this would make it easier to place characters and support cards, as it would leave two rows available in the center.
Do you guys have any input?
I know it’s been a bit since my last post, but wanted to bring you all up to speed on where we’re at:
I had originally planned to release an interim version with the Terror in Venice cards added, but I had stripped out several commands from the original code as I added in the new stuff. The game wasn’t quite playable yet.
How the game plays now: When the game opens, each player loads a deck, then begins setup. If the first player hasn’t loaded a story deck, s/he is offered one of the three existing story decks. Domains are placed, story cards are placed, and each player is given 8 cards. You target each domain, and double-click a card in hand to play it as a domain resource. Once each player has populated their three domains, the game may begin. The game plays through the phases. When you play a card, it goes into a space where it waits for you to choose a domain to pay for it. If the card is an attachment, you have to target the card you wish to play it on first.
What I’m working on now: The ability to score story cards, and checks to see about a winner.
What I’m going to work on a little bit before release: Adding scripts to individual cards.
The new release should be out within the week. I’ve put a fair amount of time into it this past week, but still need to get a bit more done before I’m ready to share it.
Just wanted to let you know that Call of Cthulhu 3.0 is in the works. Featuring a complete overhaul of the scripting, resource tracking, new look, and a lot more. Once I get the turn-handling taken care of, I will post an interim release, to let you take advantage of the features that are already complete, while I work on the card-based automation.
Here’s a peek:
Call of Cthulhu has been added to the gamersjudgment feed. The current version is 188.8.131.52 and contains all sets up through The Key and the Gate.
The game will play without any card images, though I will be linking card images for all sets, as well. If you choose to play without them, and use the game generated proxies, PLEASE notify me of any errors (in content, not layout, unless the layout is painfully broken) via PM here.
