Update #26

Legends of Dawn Patch 1.05 now live!

Legends of Dawn Patch 1.05 now live on Steam!
Important: Please note that for non-Steam version of game, we've just uploaded patch v1.05 to our website and you can download it here: http://www.dreamatrix.net/site/index.php/legends-of-dawn/downloads.html
This patch upgrades all previous versions, from 1.00 to version 1.05. This patch should not be applied to Steam version of the game. Steam players should update the game using Steam client.

Patch 1.05:

===========

- point'n'click player movement

- added map bookmarks

- fixed scroll of faith cost bug

- added level display for wearable items

- various small improvements regarding memory allocations

- fixed doubleclick crash when saving game

Now player can be controlled with WASD to move and by clicking on place you want him to go. Your character DOES NOT search for optimal path. That's up to you as a player. Reason for this is that game is filled with narrow canyons, rocks, fallen trees etc which make pathfinding very difficult. This is not such problem for monsters but it is annoying when your player backtracks when you want him to go forward. AI pathfinding uses path grid with density optimized for creatures, not for player. Also there are many locations where pathfinding will not find most optimal route, for example when player jumps from low cliff, while AI pathfinding will find roundabout route.

Map is now interactive. We have added bookmarks feature to maps panel. Right click on the location on the map and choose "Add Bookmark". You will be able to write short bookmark on that location. To delete bookmark, right click on the bookmark icon and choose "Delete Bookmark". Note that bookmarks are invisible if you place them on area covered with fog of war.

We have fixed the cost of Scroll of Faith. There was bug displaying wrong price when buying scrolls thus making it possible to buy a lot of scrolls and cast many spells thus making game unbalanced.

Wearable items (armors, weapons, helmets, shields etc) now have level shown in tooltip. Also, items that can be crafted now show level of item. Note that when crafting such items, higher level items have much better chance to receive better magical bonuses. Lvl 1 items will at best have Poor or Pitiful prefix while lvl 8 or better items can be everything from Poor to Strong, Mighty and better.

We have fixed game crash that occurred during save game when player doubleclicked on 'Yes' button in confirmation window.

      @ the-beast, Archangel and anybody else asking themselves that same question (Where do I get the DRM-free version): Archangel, you're right regarding the DRM-free version:

      You go to https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender (see update 23/24 here on Kickstarter), enter the Email-address you used for the Kickstarter, and a few seconds later you get an Email to this address delivering your unique download page (https://www.humblebundle.com/s…).

      There, you can (i) access your steam key AND/OR (ii) download the DRM-free version (3.5 GB), either directly - what I'm doing right now (29 minutes remaining) - or via BitTorrent.

      Well, now to find the time to play and test .... real life did catch up with me since my Kickstarter frenzy of late 2012/early 2013 (sigh).

      Sorry for the typos : vue : view ; mag : map.

      Creator Alexandre MANGIN on July 9, 2013

      First, thank you for the great update!
      I have 3 requests :
      1/ Could you please enlarge the camera vue much more ;
      2/ could you please decrease the upper border of the big mag, because I use it while playing and the globe and the borders too much space. A map like in Guild Wars would be the best ;
      3/ you add the mouse moving system: that's great, but could you modify it so that you could continue running if the button is kept pressed (like in all hack and slashes).
      I hope you will take my recommandations in consideration.

      @the-beast: Just go to the HumbleBundle link they gave couple of updates ago, I think there you find a link to DRM free version.

      Apologies if this is a stupid question.

      As this game now has a non-Steam patch does this mean that its now been released DRM free? When did this happen as I must have missed the announcement?

      Can you let me know where I can get the DRM free version from (I'm assuming the IP check thing that caused you to be rejected by GOG has been removed)?

      Finally for those of us on capped and slow Internet connections (Yes we still exist! :( ) can you include the file size with the downloads listed on your site please so I can plan if I am able to download this month or next month when my cap resets of if I need to spread the download over several months (Yes this has happened before). Thanks

      Hi Team.
      Good ideas, fast integration and at least one ear at the community.
      Seems we got another CD Project level developer, which means you are doing a good job far better than many others.
      Keep this pace and the next game you will develope I will pre-purchase w/o thinking twice about it.
      cheers

      Fantastic patch! I can confirm with my system that all of these changes are working well. I did find something wrong with the Saving game button. The game won't crash when you double-click, but if you click 10 to 15 times, it will save 10 to 15 new saves. Nothing major. Here is my dxdiag.txt for more details on my system if you need it for testing: https://s3.amazonaws.com/mypersonals3/DxDiag.txt
