Re: BotArena 1.44.1 Posted: End of turn effect overhaul

Postby FranAvalon » 03 Mar 2013, 20:29

We found that _sacrifice ability was broken, so cards as Diabolic edict targeting AI will do nothing.

Here is a hotfix. Just download, unpack it and overwrite:

Also, this version has the paralize bug fixed

Awesome news. Thanks for all the work. If my coding skills weren't so crap/non-existent almost and it didn't require a commercial compiler I'd try and help out. Glad things are still going.

Is it possible to import Dragon's Maze some way already, or do we have to wait for the next release?
I saw you wrote something about expansion files.

Anyway, great application. Keep ut the good work! :)

Over 90% of Dragon's Maze will be supported on next release as usually. However, we don't have a date for the release yet.
Thx for your comments :)
