Thanks guys! :D

 

@UntoldReveries: Yeah, it's probably best to wait for the next version. Most of the features haven't been implemented in the first public release and there are a few major bugs.

I guess what I'm aiming at is for the game to be released in stages (i.e. We release stuff as it gets done) and the game will have a new feature in the next release so you can easily check for updates and be taken to the right one immediately.

 

@elonah: Looking forward to those comments! :)

 

EDIT:

 

These are the features that have been added to the next version of the game so-far:

 

-------------------

VERSION 0.20

-------------------

First Installer version of Novostrana.

Levelling and Stats have been completely overhauled.

A saved game auto-updater has been included.

Really!?! That's awesome! I thought "Novostrana" didn't mean anything.

That's actually quite appropriate for what I've got planned for the project.

I based the name on the name of a country in a game called "Republic: The Revolution" which was called "Novistrana". I just changed the i to an o so I didn't get into trouble because of copyright.

I just finished roaming around, and every features is interesting. One thing that i found not so promising is the mapping,

I can't make so much comments so far because it's an Alpha version, It's not fair if i'll point at every bugs because it's under development. So that's it and good luck to you

Thanks Aura. Most of the features aren't in the current release of the game, but there should be a new release with most of the features in by Christmas. I've got a list of things that need to be done before the next release. There are currently 15 items left on that list.

Hrm... the manual isn't working in the new version... the game claims that the file cannot be found... and since I hadn't played the other version in a long while, I forgot how to do the attacks and everything.

That's weird, because it works on my installation, and it's looking for it in the right place.

Try going into "C:\Program Files\RPG Magic\Novostrana" and there should be a file in there called "Manual.pdf". If it's not there, let me know.

It depends what your folder options are. Most systems are set up so that you only see the file extension if your computer doesn't recognise it and associate it with any program.

Hmm... it sounds like it's an issue with the menu. Can you play the game from the menu?
