Scales. Covenant. Tyr. Madrigal. All have fallen. The Summoner found. The nightmare Myrkridia unleashed. Hollowmen and Ghôls occupying White Falls. I had thought things could not possibly get worse. I was wrong!

09082012 12:00am VoD NOTICE

Postby GHOST® » Fri Sep 07, 2012 11:12 pm

Greetings, just wanted to let the 3 persons, (the other 2 already know), who got ahold of Valley of Despair before it was ready for release that the plugin you have IS NOT the release version. So, you will likely want to trash that one when the actual Valley of Despair Plugins are released so as not to be red if you CooP and/or to take advantage of the last minute tweaks/fixes.

Thank U for your interest and we're looking to have things ready for you all to download no later than this time tomorrow.


EDIT: Best laid plans and all. 24 more hours. Need to get a couple planets to line up properly amongst a couple other small items. Real Life will need my attention for a bit tomorrow, but as sOOn as i can break free, i will be uploading for release the finalized Valley of Despair.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
:o)

It has come to my attention . . .

Postby GHOST® » Sat Oct 06, 2012 4:37 am

It has come to my attention that some folks are having a couple of issues with VoD.

1. Screen goes black during overcast FADE script.
When i scripted this i had my MythII contrast set to 1/2 and my laptop near or at its brightest. If you are having a problem where its getting to dark to see, please try adjusting one or both of these settings higher. Also, if you have FOG turned on, try turning it off. Hopefully this will lessen/eliminate this issue for you. If not, post here and let me know. If a large number of people are having this problem, i will think hard on releasing a patch to fix it.

2. Units circling back to the Dorfs.
I apologize for not mentioning these in the VoD Read This.html. Whats going on here is when i was rescripting TJC into VoD, i recalled that TJC's script could be easily broken or manipulated by players sending out a single unit to trigger and draw in the enemy to be slaughtered at the players leisure. To eliminate this possibility, i scripted VoD so that any unit that gets X world units away from the Dorfs will fall back to them. X is farthest in Timid to Normal play, less far in Heroic, and even less still in Legendary.

This is not ideal i know, but the alternative where i had Myrm's spawn underneath the units that wandered too far was even less so, as it almost always resulted in the death of the unit(s). If playing sOlO, this shouldnt really be an issue for most, and if playing CooP, well, youre supposed to cooperate anyways, so no need to be running off too far on your own. ;o)

When playing Desperate Measures or The Gauntlet maps, you may also run into a similiar situation when units try to get near either of the bridges, they will turn away from them. This is to keep your other units from proceeding to or beyond the bridges. I did this since only the Dorfs can trigger the endgame win which is activated when they get close enough to either bridge.

I apologize if either of these issues lessened your fun while playing VoD.
