Hello there I'm 35 and found an old Magic deck, and reminded me of Shandalar! played it 18years ago... I've found a rusty version that fasten all processes and bypass some screens, life points go down and never go further 11...very buggy!
I have tried your remake and it's good. no crashes.
also there are newest cards than 1999 expansions, right?
why cards doesn't report graphic author?
Anyway well done, thank you very much!!

Hello and thank you for keeping Shandalar alive.
The last couple of weeks I have enjoyed playing this version (Revisited) of the game with unmodified decks on a Windows 10 64-bit operating system. I started a new game on Wizard difficulty - not using the savedgames attached to the distribution. Unfortunatelly, in the mid- to late-game I encounter several problems while dueling certain enemies:
- Sedge Troll, Nether Fiend and Archangel, maybe more encounters, after a number of turns (around 10 turns for each player) appear to go into infinite thinking loop at enemy's post-combat phase. This appears no matter if loosing or winning the encounter, and no matter if enemy has 1 or 7 cards on hand. I have tried waiting for over 5 minutes and enemy turn does not end. The cursor is still "rotating". Double-pressing the game field gets cards rearranged, I can move my own cards, etc. but the enemy keeps "thinking" on next move. It does not matter if this phase is marked as "always stop" or not. The only option is to exit the game by ending the process in the Task Manager. Resuming the game and playing the encounter again may or may not have the same result. Restarting computer does not work.
- with some Djinn enemy I got the following error message: "AddCard error: No more room in cd to add a card", and I was asked to seek help on this forum, so here I am.
The deck I aim to play is heavy on card rotation (with Timetwister, Wheel of Fortune), but this issue did not yet happen with any other enemies. I searched the forum and found a workaround but I do not want to have enemy decks modified. Also it does not happen after many turns or card draws - maybe a total of 5 turns where the 1900 card limit is yet to be reached.
Not sure if those issues are specific to this distribution. Please point me to a solution if there is one. I am comfortable with hex-editing should need arise.
Thank you

- Update: playing against Dracur also got the message:
Assertion Error
File-> D:\Newmagic\multiplayer\sid\Minit.c, Line-> 1899
AddCard error: No more room in cd to add a card
Seek assistence in the Shandalar Forum at ... (seriously I can not post url of this forum)
This is in a new game, I do not yet have Timtwister, and this has happened on enemy turn 6.
