NEW DOTP2014 VERSION (Type 5 Version)

NEW DOTP2014 VERSION (Type 5 Version)

The “Type 5” is a version of gameplay that I usually use by adding “Type 5” card to one of the decks in play.

This version is not intended to be a continuation of DOTP2014 CW project. This is "my own” version of the game that I share with you. Some may like to play it that way.

I created this version of DOTP2014 so I can play it in line with games like Magarena or Mad Wizard, where you have a pool of selected cards that work fine by themselves and create random decks to play with.

The main purpose of this version of the game is to play a game of MTG with against a decent AI, not to have all the cards and effects available. If you want to play with all the cards and effects and don’t mind dumb AI, I recommend you to check the FORGE game.

There is the “Type 5” card that you can add to a deck of yours and play the game as I usually do. But you can play the game normally by creating your custom deck and play it the vanilla way. Just don’t add “Type 5” card to your deck or remove it from random generated deck” Random Deck 1.dck”.

In “DOTP14 Random Deck Generator” there is an application that generates random decks in “Forge” format (so you can load them into DOTP2014 deck builder) for those who don’t have the patience , time or talent to create new decks (just like me:), or just like to play it that way. This app supports 16.207 handpicked cards that you can check in “My Collection.txt” file (and edit it, if you like)

What's new

- Hundreds of new cards up to Innistrad: Crimson Vow (I'm about half done, still coding)
- Added Day/Night support
- Corrected hundreds of cards and bugs
- Disabled timings (by renaming <AI_AVAILABILITY to <NOAI_AVAILABILITY).
- Reworked “energy” cards (cards with “energy” slowed the game and don’t activate the effects needing energy)

-! Planeswalkers are not supported in this version because I altered the existing filter functions for permanents and enchantments, just like Vanguard, Planechase…These functions were slowing the game and Planeswalkers lead AI to make stupid attack decisions.
-! Cards with these effects weren’t selected to the Random Deck Generator and I’m not creating new ones with these effects (at least for now) as they slowdown the game or the effects are not properly supported:
. Non basic lands
. Convoke
. Improvise
. Manifest
. Transform
. Provoke
. Delve
. Morph
. Cards that create treasure chests

Although I don’t add these cards to the random deck generator list you can still play with these cards, they’re still functional (at least, probably)

This version is indented to play as a Lite version of MTG, where you play against a decent AI, by removing cards that don’t work too well.

You can edit DIFFICULTY_SETTINGS.XML in “CONFIGS” to speed up gameplay

<Row ss:AutoFitHeight="0">
<Cell ss:StyleID="s74"><Data ss:Type="String">Planeswalker</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s75"><Data ss:Type="Number">2</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s68"><Data ss:Type="Number">3</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s68"><Data ss:Type="Number">2</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s68"><Data ss:Type="Number">2</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s68"><Data ss:Type="Number">2</Data></Cell>

<Cell ss:StyleID="s69"><Data ss:Type="Number">6</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s70"><Data ss:Type="Number">1</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s70"><Data ss:Type="Number">1</Data></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID="s73"><Data ss:Type="Number">1</Data></Cell>

Keep these “s68” vales as the minimum. Increase them to increase thinking time and trying to improve AI further, but you’ll have more waiting time and a slower gameplay.

This looks really impressive! Quick question: does it need an existing copy of DOTP2014 to work?

HI Cyril

Yes, this is not a standalone version. You must have DOTP 2014 previously installed. You can keep this as a separate version.

Ok, cool. I don't have DOTP2014, but good luck with your project. Great idea to go for stronger AI over all the cards in my view. Mad Wizard is an awesome inspiration!
