Castle Vox 1.3 release - better online notifications

Post by dustin » Fri Oct 16, 2015 6:29 pm

Castle Vox version 1.3 is now available for download.

This version introduces better notifications for online games. If you leave Castle Vox open in the background when you have active long-timer games being played, then the application will periodically poll the online games and alert you when turns are ready.

This is the first Castle Vox update is a long time, so it's also modernizing the build code for modern systems, and upgrading to Java 8. If you notice any issues, please let me know!

Version 1.3 is broken, for me. I downloaded it and installed it, and the game starts up just fine. But when I take a turn, the opponents fail to move at all. They don't even recruit. I just played a whole map (it was "House of France"), recruiting and conquering all the way to the end, and none of the opponents ever did a single thing, just sat there and let me kill them. I was playing "Hard" difficulty, so some were Polymath, some were Kodos, and some were Hawk. My platform is Mac OS X (El Capitan) version 10.11. Any suggestions?

Hi,
what OS version are you using on your computer? Could you send me the full log output in an email please?

You can download the older 1.2 Mac version from here:

This version doesn't run for me either.
1.2 from 4 years ago runs fine, and has run fine for years.
Linux 4.2.5
jre8-openjdk 8.u65
