WTH 0.4.1 (a.k.a. “Regrowth”) is here !

It’s been a while! For people who somehow got used to the “monthly release” rate we had so far, sorry if we made you wait, but it’s for the greater good.

As you probably know by now, I got a Cease and Decist order from Wizards of the Coast’s lawyers. Put aside my personal feelings that Wagic is doing nothing but good to this company, I respect their work and copyright laws, so we had to temporarily remove all downloads from the site.

But fear not, we are back from the graveyard with a new release, which, unlike what I had announced, is packed with new cool features that I think you’ll enjoy.

The most obvious change in this version is that no copyrighted content is included in this release. This means no cool card thumbnails, but Wagic of course still allows you to put your own card pictures in the appropriate folders to play with nice graphics. If you need help on how to add your own card pictures to the game, the forum might help you. If not, google is your friend, I guess.

Now for the good new features:

  • More than 300 new cards, including cards from Tempest, Portal, and the new Conflux Expansion. Many thanks to Dr. Solomat for his work on Tempest and Portal. This means Wagic now officially has more than 1000 cards you can play with, not counting all the ones you can create by yourself (sky’s the limit, yeah!). As usual, check the forums for more cards!
  • Wagic now handles Token generators such as the Hive
  • Sacrifice has been added (I know you’ve been waiting for this one for a long time!)
  • New ability keyword: cloud
  • Lots of improvements in the card parser, new keywords, etc…. Cards such as Siege-gang Commander, Bad Moon, or the hive can now be 100% coded in the _cards.dat files without having to know one single line of C++ (sacrifice, token generators, “lord” ability improvement, multiple abilites for one cost,moveTo,…)
  • Font fixes
  • New cool menus
  • Lots of improvements for cards shown in “text” mode
  • Too many bug fixes to tell

Download, as usual, on the download page

Many thanks to coders, card creators, and beta testers of version 0.4.0!

If you enjoy Wagic, please spread the word! We are always looking for new developers, modders, card creators, or new fans of the game :)

    This is a great update. It has become one of my favorite games on the psp. You should cut a deal with WOTC and make some big money.

    I like that you can make new decks for the computer just using notepad.

    Also I’ve noticed a couple of bugs if your interested write me back. I wish I knew more about C++ programming I would help you out.

    Hey Lord Malkil!
    Since WotC threatened me, I don’t see them willing to “cut a deal” with me :D
    If they really wanted to do Magic on the PSP or the DS, they would’ve done it years ago.

    As far as bugs are concerned, please go to http://wololo.net/wagic/bugs and post them there, or on the forums. They’ll go on the growing list of know bugs, and will eventually get solved!
