Beta 95 - new Windows installer

Post by dustin » Mon Oct 04, 2010 6:29 am

Castle Vox beta 95 is now here:
http://sillysoft.net/vox/beta/

This version has a new Installer for Windows computers. Windows users please try it and and let me know if you get any errors.

Sound effect tweaking continues. New sound for a turn starting.

Adds the Z-click shortcut, to move all but 3 of your troops.

Should fix beh's map:null bug.

Fixes bug with chat colors.

Maybe there will be 1 more beta, or the next version could be 1.0...

There were 2 different versions of that sound. I wasn't so keen on them, which is why I switched it. I'm interested to hear what other people think also.

I forgot to mention: this beta also has more achievement ranks, take a look.

and I did a tweak of the unit offsets when there are many in a country.

Started a game in Alcatraz all bots, no humans, hard setting.

When game was over, hit "Play Again"

Screen came up which reads:

"Map Error: Null" It has the VOX Castle Icon and only choice is to click "OK"

When you choose "OK" nothing happens. Armies are placed but no restart happens.

Mac OS X 10.6.4
