Version 0.15 public release

12 likes

The new version of the Chaos Reborn prototype is now public.

If you find bugs, please report them on the Chaos Reborn Prototype Bugs forum. I will, of course, welcome any other comments on this version.

You will not notice many changes in this version, since most of the work for the last month has been re-working of the network multiplayer code. So here are the changes:

  • Selecting a movement destination shows a movement arrow with attack lines to potential enemy targets. Clicking again on the destination confirms the move, or you can select another destination. There is no ‘undo’ move any more.
  • There is a range guide displayed for creatures with ranged combat and wizards with magic bolts. 
  • A mount will now not be able to move in the turn a wizard mounts it.
  • Combat bonuses/penalties for elevation in close combat increased.
  • Unicorn charge bonus only obtained if distance between start position and enemy position is two or greater.
  • You can spectate a game which is in progress.
  • There is a link to Ped209s tournament site from the login screen.
  • The client/server networking infrastructure has been completely rewritten. The unresponsive lobby buttons should now be fixed. There may, however, be other problems with this new networking system since it has not been rigorously tested yet.

Known issues:

  • Problems reconnecting on Mac OSX. The client/web browser will need to be restarted to fix this, unfortunately.
  • Some graphical problems with Goblin and Giant textures.
  • Rarely the game seems to start without the arena in view

Best of luck with your games, 

 Julian

      Are these links public, like the ones on the webpage? Can we share them?

      The broken file in the Linux zip, resources.assets, can be overwritten by the same file from the Mac zip (ChaosRebornMac.app/Contents/Data/resources.assets).

      Posting this in the forum too, but the Linux zip seems broken -- tried to decompress with both Ubuntu's default Archive Manager and PeaZip running in Wine, and got an error both times.

      Two quick notes:
      1) In the startup screen the text says to click on 'create acccount' with three c's.
      2) I'm getting timed out when I do click at the Create Account -button.

      cant access web, says
      Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to chaos1.vm.bytemark.co.uk

      Or - you can just manually change the link to http://chaos1.vm.bytemark.co.uk/builds/ChaosRebornWin64.zip
      It will direct you to the correct distributive.
      All hail logical filenames!

      This is the correct link for the 64bit version:

      chaos1.vm.bytemark.co.uk/builds/ChaosRebornWin64.zip

    8. Creator Josh on July 8, 2014

      ya that will probably be fixed tomorrow with another quick update. Good catch though Anthony

    9. Creator Anthony DuLac on July 8, 2014

      Problem. The link for the Windows 7 64-bit version that came in the email just sent, is linked to the MAC version. I checked all the links and the only one missing (frustratingly) is the Windows 7 64-bit version. :(
