Posted March 10, 2015. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments

Battle of the 9 Armies

Wait that's not right...
Well you get the idea.
The 9th faction will be Erebor, faction of the shaving adversed.

Erebor has been the faction I've wanted to release most but at the same time it has always been the faction with the largest workload.
Finally Erebor has started progressing enough to be released in the nearish future.

Erebor are a powerhouse infantry faction fielding a large number of strong infantry units for both attack and defence.
Familiar faces will make up the hero list like Gimli, Gloin, Dwalin and King Dain Ironfoot.
Via the spell store other dwarf heroes will also be making an appearance such as Thorin Oakenshield and his ill fated companions.

Breaking with tradition Erebor won't be coming alone they'll be released at the same time as the Strongholds.

Notes

Beta 0.2 is the first full version release since Beta 0.15 and has a new file structure and updated launcher.
The file size has been reduced as well by trimming as much fat as possible bringing the current size down to 2.5gb from somewhere around 4gb.

A new optional addon is coming soon that will change the look of the game slightly to give a more cinematic look.
The UI has an updated look to match the Return of Shadow theme, even the launcher has been tweaked to match it.

Check out roschangelist.txt for a full list of changes.
Beta 0.2 also includes a small hotfix 0.21 that fixes a few issues I noticed while I was slowly uploading the Beta (it took me about a week to do so).

An installer and old version uninstaller is planned to be released later today.

You can also read the updated manual from the download section.

Lone Wolf Updates » Return of Shadow Patch 0.175

Posted January 8, 2015. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments

Patch 0.175

theadbar.png

 

Download Patch 0.175

Because of a stupid oversight on my part I have to reupload 0.17 as 0.175.

So to make up for that I've added a little something something to the launcher.

Type in Imladris to the newly updated launcher to access a new Game mode the Rivendell Preview.

Also because I'm not as rushed as I was yesterday I'm able to do this release properly complete with the standard promo stuff.

Test mode also includes Rivendell.

 
The Rivendell preview is as the name suggests a preview.
The faction isn't complete yet so I'm not adding it to the proper release, but you can have a play with it and get a general feel for it.

This patch mostly fixes issues with Dunland but also addresses other issues and updates some things like FX and audio.

Lone Wolf Updates » Return of Shadow News Wrap up 14-01-14

Posted January 14, 2014. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments

News wrap up.

 

Beta 0.155 is slated for the 17th of January which is only 3 days away.

 

News article with details of Beta 0.155 including some information on Dunland 2.0 Part 1 which will start to introduce a few changes to Dunland.

Check it out here.

 

The launcher has gotten a major overhaul since Beta 0.15 with a lot of being streamlined and automated.

You will no longer have to set your game irectory manually the launcher will handle that even for custom directories.

The launcher will also automatically check that, first the game is installed and then if you have patched the game to 1.03, if you haven't patched it will automatically run the game's patch checker it will also check if you have T3A online installed and adjust accordingly.

I've added the Game mode code to the main menu and removed the Starting menu so everything is handled from the one menu.

Added a new game mode help option to the launcher "gmhelp".

 

Adding 3 new Game Modes:

  1. noheroes which removes all buildable heroes.
  2. gollumwars which removes all buildable heroes and gives each faction 5 Gollums to build
  3. gollzilla which replaces the final spell for each faction with the massive Gollzilla.

 

I've created a Google doc for users to post bugs found here.

If enough bugs are reported by the 17th I'll reveal some juicy information on future plans for Return of Shadow.
