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.
Due to a distinct lack of randomness of the random numbers of images in Mage Wars, the module was not available since yesterday. Now in version 1.1 everything has been renumbered and we’re back in business.
When you game updates you also need to re-download the image packs as everything has changed. Unfortunately your home built decks will no longer work. Sorry about that. The sample decks have been updated though.
Also included in the game file is the new deck builder plugin.
Changes to the Game:
- Updated links in the game’s feed listing to the new website
- Shield Blast triggers will show you the card text as a reminder, when it asks if you want to trigger it.
- Cleaned up some typos in the sets
This update was pushed ahead of schedule to address an issue with OCTGN’s new update, which was supposed to move all the installed card images to a different folder.
This version was just released to address a big update in OCTGN’s codebase, which changes the way card images are stored in the database.
Changes made to the game:
- The info links in the MTG games feed listing have been updated to the new website
- Activate Card Ability now uses the new dialog boxes
- Removed all instances of the winforms multipleChoice boxes
