VCMI 0.71 released

we are happy to present you a new VCMI release: 0.71. New features include morale and luck handling, a bunch of new supported objects and spells, time events, obstacles on battlefield, smooth map scrolling during hero movement. Apart from them we have done many bugfixes and improvements.

Extract the package into your main Heroes folder.
WoG 3.58f is required. We strongly recommend using English version.
If you have older version of VCMI, you have to overwrite it.


Remember that it's possible to save the game by typing "save <filename>" in the console or by pressing "Save" button in the system options window. Game can be loaded using the main menu.
Old saves from 0.7 are not supported, format has been changed. They should be omitted by VCMI automatically but we recommend deleting them manually anyway.

VCMI supports new screen resolutions: 1024x600 and 1024x768. To use it resolution, type (before starting the actual game!) in the console "resolution" and pick appropriate one. Alternatively, you can change default resolution by the editing config/settings.txt file (carefully!). More convenient ways of changing screen resolution will come in further releases. Graphics for them was prepared by Dru (thanks!).

We are still planning further releases from 0.7x series. Considered features are handling artifacts, exploring seas, events on the map, area spells and town sieges. Stay tuned :-)

Thanks for Aidis, Altair, amvmichael, dikamilo, Krystian1995, majaczek, Mirguth, Steven Aus, TrueTrue, Wiron, Zamolxis and everyone else who helped us with testing and improving VCMI (I hope I haven't missed anyone). You've done great work, over 100 issues were reported since 0.7 and definitely most of them have been resolved.
