New update which improves the call out/shootout/posse forming mechanics and adds a new Default Action which should streamline most basic actions via double clicks
- Now using a Lowball Pot card to store lowball antes. It should make it clearer when there’s a lowball and what the stakes are.
- Call Out Process has been improved somewhat. To call out, target the dude you want and then use the Call out action (Ctrl+Shift+C). The controller of the dude can now quickly accept (F5) or reject (ESC) the call out and will be moved accordingly in the latter case.
- If a call-out is accepted, a shootout breaks out immediately. Use f10 to finish it.
- Added a “Default Action” for double clicking cards.
- Double clicking on the Lowball Pot will declare you the winner and take the money. Useful for resolving ties.
- Double Clicking a Dude, while you have an opposing Dude targeted, will call-out the target dude
- Double Clicking a Dude which has been called out, will accept the call out
- Double Clicking a Dude while a shootout is going on, will add them as attacker or defender accordingly.
- On every other case, the default action will just boot/unboot the card
- Game will now warn you if you’re trying to do something in a phase you’re not allowed to. You’ll be able to jump to the proper phase from the dialogue.
Added a new version which significantly improves and simplifies the goods attachment mechanics.
- Now to play a goods, spell or improvement card, you need to have a dude or deed targeted respectively. Otherwise the action will fail.
- Attached goods will be autoplaced on the target card as soon as you double click on them.
- To trade goods simply target the target dude and use the “Trade Goods” action in the first dude’s context menu.
- If you only hold one good, it will be moved immediately.
- If you trade more than one goods card, you’ll get a multiple choice menu to choose which ones you want to trade.
Also changed the phase changing shortcut to Ctrl + Enter to sync with my other definitions and changed the special font from the chat menu to improve readability.
Version 126.96.36.199 is up and contains more automation of channeling on familiars and conjurations. All variations should be automated. A few code fixes were added too.
Also my partner in crime “sIKE” has done an AMAZING job of entering card data. This builds a platform for more features in the time to come. Right now you can use it in the deck builder to find that card you just can’t remember the name of, but you know it had the word “xxx” in the text. Almost everything can be searched now.
As soon as someone implements dice rolling in a computerized version of a game, someone else is bound to question the validity of the randomness of the rolls. Fortunately there are some people on the internet that take randomness very serious and have created a service via www.random.org that uses static from the atmosphere to generate random numbers (no – Air Wizards do not affect the outcome during play). This service has now been implemented in the Mage Wars OCTGN module version 188.8.131.52. Remember that true randomness also includes clusters of repeating numbers so if you roll a lot of blanks don’t blame me – take it up with the dice gods.
A few other improvement have been added. Dice rolling is generally faster and automated reset of the tokens Ready/used, Deflect & Voltaric Shield are working.
Get busy rolling those dice.
Per suggestion of sIKE, the promos have been added to Mage Wars in release 184.108.40.206
All cards mentioned here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/992092/current-promo-list are included. Images were hard to come by so the quality is not perfect. For a short time the images are included in the update. Just restart OCTGN after the update to have the images installed. Failing that the image pack includes the promo cards too now.
The Deck builder plugin included in the game feed now exports the deck in text format to the clipboard for easy sharing on forums etc. It looks like this:
Finally VtES game will work in new OCTGN module.
Hope post it until the end of this month. Sorry for delay.
As the Mage Wars module has been annoying the LotR crowd, another release was necessary. Basically a lot of images have been shifted around behind the curtain.
If you experience any missing images go and download the image pack again – Sorry about any inconvenience. This is needed if you didn’t get the kumanjaro update yesterday.
Seeing double images? A bug in OCTGN requires you to uninstall Mage Wars and then reinstall it to clear out the cobwebs this time.
Dare I say it? This should be the last time you need to download the card images though until the next expansion comes along.
Other fixes in this release include
– In game validator fix (miscounting “or” type cards)
– Redundant card from Conquest of Kumanjaro removed
Version 1.2 of Mage Wars is up and includes conquest of Kumanjaro cards (all 26 were spoiled online)
In addition a missing card was added (Fog Bank) and a few typo’s corrected.
Remember to download the image pack (now one large archive for all sets)
hey all, the URL to the Game Directory feed is changing to a secure HTTPS protocol. As of July 1st, your game feed for this site will no longer work.
OCTGN may be able to automatically update your feed to the new URLS (as its just a find/replace of http to https), but just in case, its advisable that you add this new feed URL to OCTGN and delete the old one. You will NOT lose any games you already had installed, as long as you ADD NEW THEN DELETE OLD.
