    Hi, and thanks for writing this news.

    As you can see, for those who didn't give a go to the previous books, or who couldn't because they were not working on their linker, it can be a good opportunity to try them out.

    Have fun! [​IMG]

    Well, I don't have specific plans, since I'm doing that on my free time. But now that the project is revived, I'd like to do at least the first 5 books. After that, the book rules change, and that would need extra work, so I don't know. As long as I'll get pleasure doing it, I'll continue, I suppose.

    About donations... well... it is not "necessary", but if you ask me if I'd appreciate it, of course I'd do! [​IMG] Frankly if I had received $1 for every download of my games, I could envision this as a professional activity. Unfortunately, making DS homebrews doesn't seem to be the fastest way to fortune, since I really didn't receive many donations (by the way, I'd like to thank everyone who made a donation to me, it was always helpful and rewarding).

    So if you want to show your appreciation of my work and of the gift I'm making to the community, then of course, a donation will be really appreciated (especially at this moment, where my financial situation would benefit from any support [​IMG]). It's up to you! [​IMG]

    i just finished the first book and it was simple but very well made... if a commercial would have been released then the only thing changed would be that the books would be compiled
    simply brilliant interface and music

    Possible bug report here for Caverns of Kalte, v1.5:

    [Background]
    This character has gone through the first two books.
    I ended up losing my backpack, and items in it the normal section of the inventory, somewhere pretty early on, but everything on the specials page is still there, including the Sommerswerd.

    [Bug]
    Despite having the Sommerswerd still listed in my inventory, page 170 does NOT allow the "if you have the Sommerswerd..." option to be selected.
    Edit: Actually, none of the Sommerswerd checks are working. Will test again without losing the backpack later.

    [Other Notes]
    I'm pretty sure the +combat bonus from the Sommerswerd is still in effect.

    Thanks Aia for the report. I tried to reproduce it, but couldn't encounter the bug. If you could send me the save file (saved at section 170), I could really check what's wrong. The file is called "Caverns Of Kalte.xml" and should be at the root of the card. My mail is lonewolfdsfree.fr. Thank you for your help! [​IMG]

    Hi Aia,

    I received your saved file, and could reproduce the bug. In fact, it's an issue when you possess the Sommerswerd but don't use it as an equipped weapon. I fixed the bug in the engine, but a temporary solution is to equip the Sommerswerd before entering section #170. By the way, it's more interesting to equip it permanently because you'll then free a "Special Item" slot.
    (and normally you shouldn't get the CS bonus if you don't equip it, so I fixed this too)

    Thank you for your help! [​IMG]

    Hi,

    Ok, it seems that a few nasty bugs were still present in the previous global release of the books, sorry about that! [​IMG]
    So now they are hopefully fixed, I'm doing a "hotfix release" which, of course, is a recommended download.

    Here's the changelog:
    The files are always present at the usual address: http://www.projectaon.org/staff/frederic/index.php

    Have fun!
    Frédéric

    Hmm-- so that means, if you have the Sommerswerd equipped as a weapon, it's susceptible to any events that remove your weapons, right? However, if you kept it in Specials, that's not a problem. I seem to recall that happening in book 2, before you get the Sommerswerd, which makes it irrelevant, but an interesting point.

    Thanks for the quick fix!
