Version 0.8 brings three major updates. Firstly, a new chapter to test out - "The Isle of Dawn" - should provide the player with exciting new adventures. Secondly, spells, spell spheres, spell trees and mana costs have been modified/ added. Thirdly, the implementation of the new hero creation screen provides more details than ever. We are almost done in reaching our goal of improving the hero system, only small modifications still need to be done.
A few minor changes have been done as well. Almost all videos have been redone (intro and chapter videos) and there were some new ones added. Graphical-wise: old bad-looking terrain tiles were updated, some GUIs got polished, new items are ready to be equipped, and a few units have smoother animations.
Music has not been neglected: all 86 soundtracks are now of equal volume and playlists have been updated.
We have also improved the functionality of dialogue files and the editor for people interested in scenario making and mod-mods. Also externalized many TPC-implemented strings for translatable versions.
Last but not least, tweaks have been done in attempt to balance the factions and make gameplay fair. A few pesky bugs have been fixed, including the spell bugs.
Full list of changes can be found in the changelog provided.
