PLEASE READ- ORC IS GONE (temporarily)

Postby Jeff Fiske » Wed Jan 14, 2009 9:09 pm

Sorry I missed that so many of you were having problems downloading the beta.

There is a NEW beta version going up very soon, but with NO ORCS. This is a patch version which fixes widescreen issues, and also limits Exploding pumpkins to the Undead Lord and the Trickster. Please Post here if you have problems downloading it.

Once this has been banged on, it will go to live on Steam (and Impluse, GreenHouse, DirectDownload...etc).

Once it has gone out to the general public and all is well, I will put the previous version of the 'Orc Lords' back on the beta server so you insiders will have access to the Orc Lords version of the game. IE- the insiders will be able to play the Orc Lords version of the game, by using the beta build.

Yes- the Orc Lords is going to be a separate version of the game, and will probably never be on Steam. We will explain later, but please continue your silence on the issue until the announcement about Orc Lords is made- then I will explain in more detail.

Please PM me if you find anything critical in the new beta build.

Biggest known bug in the game, in my mind, is the exploit of being able to purchase an upgrade to your Manor after building a resource, regardless of how much money you had left over.

I take it the Orcs and other races are a planned part for an expansion, or a Hinterland Special Edition.

I assume that the latest patch will be the final before the "Orc Lords"?

I know y'all TM folk must be pretty busy these days, but is there going to be any new information posted in the next few weeks? :o
