Hi everyone, We wanted to let you know how things are going with the next update. For it we'll be mainly adding diplomacy, alchemy, a lot of fixes for AI and game logic, video cards support and much more else. The update's almost ready for release, but as the weekend is already upon us, we thought that we should hold off patching the main game itself for now. Instead we'd like to try something different. A little backstory. How does the current development for PC work? It's an endless adventure filled with amazing discoveries. For example, we were contacted by two players who couldn't get the game to start. Both had the same type of video card (we won't say who the manufacturer is, but it starts with 'N' and ends with 'A'). The game worked fine for them until the latest update, and we didn't see any other similar complaints. What's the reason? As it turned out, a Steam client update was released at approximately the same time. And only such combination of these three factors (video card drivers, Steam client and the latest Eador update) resulted in a game crash. Going back to the update, we decided to use the full potential of Steam and put out a beta-version of the upcoming update. If you wish to try it now, you can. In Steam games library, you should choose Eador, click on 'Properties', go to 'Betas' tab, select 'eador_beta' and, finally, 'Check code'. If the update proves to be stable, you can expect its official release next week. Keep in mind, the beta will be also updated over the next couple of days.
