  • Magic & Empire 3.0.24 Released

    Magic & Empire Open Preview #2 (v3.0.24) has been released, now available for Mac and Windows at the usual download links.

    I'm happy to announce the introduction in this version of a new AI, or at least a Preview version of it. All spells are supported. Most blood abilities are supported. (The unsupported ones will play randomly.) The AI opponent will no longer cheat by playing the same blood ability more than once per turn. Future releases will include further improvements. The next version should complete support for all blood abilities.

    In this release, the quests have been given their own quests screen, where they can be displayed larger (and no longer have text that is cut off in the middle). To get to the quests, click on the quests button, which has been added to the bottom of the main screen. The number of quests you have displays beside the button.

    We revised the battle speeds, so that blood abilities and spells no longer hover so long on x2 and x4 speed settings. The x4 speed setting is now significantly faster, which can be important when autoplaying.

    There have also been many other fixes since the previous version (v3.0.21):

      1x Battle speed could still show a little more detail, to make it easier to follow, but 2x and 4x are just right now. Very good.
