    4.0 beta Sneak peak :P ENJOY!!!

    Post  Archaon on Thu Sep 17, 2009 5:53 am

    RELEASED!!!

    Divide And Conquer ART PATCHER + HOTFIXES (aka 3.991 BETA Package)

    Download link;
    megaupload.com 6P54VMSZ

    To install, simply drop the data folder into your 3.99 install and overwrite everything.
    Then delete the map.rwm file - play!

    Includes banners, loading screens, Menu, Splash, some text edits, some new UI, symbols, Event images, missing unit cards now fixed, Corsairs can now 'actually' recruite Raider cav and Harad Artillery, faction hording is setup but not completed, movement slightly increased, fixed navy movement, winter added from the early version of Majestic map mod, some campaign script tweaks, and finally descr_strat tweaks.

    MOST bugs should now be gone! Just need to fix silver units and the AOR/ZOR system for 1.2 compatible BETA 4.0...


    New Menu Background!


    And the 4.0 Splash screen!


    Aren't they SEXY!! OOH YEAH HUBBA HUBBA *Ahem*

    We are planning to release here, not TWC, a small bugfixer and Tokus Art patcher.

    The above is a sneak peak at some of Tokus's work. We are very proud and honored to have this fantastic artist leading the DaC team!

    In addition to Tokus*Art we also have some unit cards for all those horrible gray peasants..


    In addition to these, I have made some hotfixes for bugs, I cannot say what though..

    But i like corsairs - maybe that will tell you what i mean Razz

    need to wait for a full build - Tokus and I wanted to fix a few bugs and add some 2d art to 3.99 to make it better playability to give you guys a little more until 4.0 is ready

    Hi Gang,

    Yeah, we want to release a 3.99 bonus pack to top up the 3.99 beta build with some sure stuff; minor tweakage to the 2D and so forth before the 4.0 build.

    DUTY NOW FOR THE FUTURE!

    I've been busy really polishing the faction symbols - you'll LOVE 'EM - gorgeous almost final version ready for the Beta build 3.999 Surprised)

    Also - nailed the main Splash after a bit more development and the menu page I've moved the logo so the player doesn;t have it fighting with the faction description text. Then the Gondor and Rohan wee symbols on the start map banners have been beefed up so they're stronger. Finally, I'm revamping all the symbols on the start up roll-over selection (at least the ones I've updated). Once I've done that I'll post it up here FOR CHECKING by my illustrious fellow DaC developers for the thumbs up before we unleash it upon the 3.99ers!

    Shouldn't be long, it's late but I aim to have this done and up by the morning. Moving on then and my next 3 day location has intermitant internet. Least i can play a bit of the 3.999 b3ta build!

    Aw the best,

    Tokus*Bombadil

    Ohhh I'm loving the new look Very Happy
    One problem though... It's now taking me ages to end turn =/ (We'll about three times as long)
    It might just be a problem on my end but... Anyone else having this problem?

    Nah, but you should rather play the current version of third age. It is a lot more polished

    Yep, but the balance of the assymetrical gameplay was nearly perfect...

    God dammit, Elven militia in the last beta... Why ?

    I'll give vanilla Third Age a chance, but god, I miss that 3.991 beta... Probably my biggest gaming regret.

    Thanks anyway man !
