Wagic 0.17 beta now available on iOS!

iPad and iPhone users, rejoice! Thanks to Mike’s excellent work, we are finally able to include iOS in our release. For the first time Wagic is available on both Android and iOS.

Wagic’s support for touch screens is still experimental, and the UI is not perfect yet, but hey, once again, let me use the opportunity that we would love to get more devs, so if you’re interested, please join the fun :)

Own an iPad or an iPhone? You can download Wagic 0.17 beta here. Also, since I don’t own any iOS device myself, I would love to see videos of the game in action on youtube, so please post videos :).

Oh, almost forgot to mention, this (of course) requires a jailbroken device.

    The psp version looks at its very best :)
    The iphone and android version is ok, but needs some fixes, doesn’t feel as smooth as it is on psp. It still says ”O” to continue or ”X” to end, etc… I would suggest higher resolution graphics if possible for android and full touch screen optimization. I realize that this is on beta, just giving few suggestions :)

        I know I should not have done that, but it felt really good mocking on him! By the way, sorry for the double post.

          It’s not DJGodman. This guy is more of a fake and a phony.

            You are probably right, but still it does not change the good feeling I had when I mocked him.

    Wololo: just wanted to say.. you could get much more people knowing about wagic.. hosting it on cydia.. maybe get in touch with the folks over at modmyi.com

      Santos, thanks. I am aware of that, however Wagic is not yet in a state where we are ready to push it to cydia. Basically we want to submit a game that does not run the risk of a lawsuit in the US, so that means getting rid of some of our MTG dependencies. We are in the process of building a different game based on the engine, but it is stalled at the moment.
      As soon as we’re ready with that we will try to have Wagic available on Cydia and the android market.

    @wololo i am curious why didnt u send this game to sony to be released on psn long ago for free ? Or sony doesnt want people to make games for psp?

    Reply

    1. wololo’s avatar

      It’s not that simple. Sony introduced the Minis fairly late in the game. Additionally, Wagic (at least the MTG mod, which was the only mod available until recently) is infringing on some patents in the US and cannot legally be distributed there. Finally, Wagic’s point is customization, and I doubt Sony would allow a game that lets people touch all the configuration files as they want… It also probably doesn’t meet some of the security criterias of the PSP, due to these configuration tweaks I mention.

    @wololo
    I hope this new game will not get in the way with wagic, which I hope will progress even further. I’m a big fan of Magic and so of course of Wagic. Would like to see a better interface and more cards, that would be my greatest wish :).

    Reply

    1. wololo’s avatar

      Unfortunately my free time cannot be inflated, so every time I work on the other game, I spend less time on the MTG mod. But every improvement I make to the engine will help Wagic in the end. The closer we are to support another game, the more support we add to the existing game. About interface improvements, I would love to hear precise details on what you would change. On the PSP, the interface already seems pretty good to me, for most cases.

    One question: is there any list of changes since 0.16 version? Or this is only Android & iOS update?

      I will give a list of changes when we do the public release. There’s more than new platforms :)

    So if i got this right JGE++ is a engine that lets you make for loads of devices with a single c++ code?
    I want to make a game too but i just bloody hate java. I think C/C++ is just much cleaner.

    Reply

    1. wololo’s avatar

      Yes, jge++ allows you to code the game once, and compile for several platforms including android, ios, psp, windows, linux, maemo.

      1. Xawotihs’s avatar

        Actually the original JGE does not allow more than Windows and PSP. We forked it and extended it a lot to support Linux, Android, ios, maemo, …
        So, if it’s to start a new game, I would not recommend JGE at all.

          Thats a bummer.. Even not when you say delete the main source of wagic and write your own game on it?

          And, Do you have any other reccomendation for a C/C++ engine that works on Android as well on a desktop (Or more of course)?

    Great !!!! tested on ASUS TF101 (just one game at the moment) and it works very well.
    Only one difficulty to select the cards (on the right), as they are really tiny, you got to “double-tap” on screen very precisely.

    Anyway, very good app… Thanks

    Reply

    1. Frédéric Larré’s avatar

      As a second thought, if the tapping or “scrolling” on te preview didn’t change card, but only permited to play it (double-tap), it would be easier, no ?

      Reply

      1. xawotihs’s avatar

        Wagic on Android or Meego plays card only when you “tap” them. Wagic detects a touch event as a “tap” only when it lasts less than 250 ms. When the touch event last longer than 250 ms, Wagic simply updates the item selected according to the current touch position without playing anything. Consequently, to select precisely something, just keep your finger on the screen and move it until the correct item is selected. Then just “tap” it.

      Further tests:
      You need a keyboard to play, right ? (Interrupts, in the deck builder, etc…)
      At first, I couldn’t use some features because the alphabetic keys do not work, I had to map the buttons on “system” keys like Up, Down, Left, Right, LShift, RShift, Search, Enter, Delete, Back, Alt, etc…

      Reply

      1. wololo’s avatar

        some of the keys are mapped to gestures (swipe down for interrupt ?). On iOS as far as I know the iOs keyboard can be used to type deck’s name for example. Not sure about the state of android for now. Basically the shop and the deck editore are not yet up to speed for touch screens, the rest should be definitely usable.

      2. wololo’s avatar

        Sorry, just saw you are testing on Android. On android the keyboard in the deck editor does not work yet AFAIK.
        for interrupt I’m convinced it’s swipe up or swipe down.

        We will improve that with time. We (I) wanted to get an android version out the door in the hope to get more attention and help from other devs

        1. Frédéric Larré’s avatar

          System buttons work on TF101 (revolver ROM – android 3.2.1), I use the keyboard dock (EP-101) and I mapped every function to working keys : LShift, Rshift, Space, Enter, Tab, Back, Search, AltGr, Delete, Up, Down, Left, Right.
          Interrupts and deck builder work fine.
          Alphabetic keys do not work outside “options” where you can assign some of them to PSP controls.
          Anyway, it’s usable, provided it’s properly configured.
          Great work !

          PS : I saw a problem on a card it was a Red one with /X/R/ invocation, I think it’s Fireball, but I can’remember Ed. Text reads “~this~” instead of card name (french translation ?)

    I can’t believe such a good thing exists for iphones and that garbage but not for windows.

      Wagic is also available for windows, check the download page. Although not for windows phones if that’s your question.

    When are we going to get a better deck editor that shows more than just a couple cards at a time? I mean the statistics are amazingly awesome, but Yu-Gi-Oh! games have your deck editor beat hands down when it comes to ease-of-use.

    Reply

    1. wololo’s avatar

      Yu Gi Oh! games are also not free, not open source, and made by people who are paid to do it. If you want the deck editor to be improved, the best way is to do it yourself and submit a patch. The second best way is to provide actual improvement points without making a comparison to a commercial video game, unless you want us to charge every player 30$ for wagic?

    The token of the Dragon Broodmother doesn’t have the ability of the devour 2

    I have try many times about it,I can’t sacrifice the creature and the token doesn’t have the counters on it.

    Here are the information about this card

    Dragon Broodmother
    Creature – Dragon 4/4, 2RRRG (6)

    Flying

    At the beginning of each upkeep, put a 1/1 red and green Dragon creature token with flying and devour 2 onto the battlefield. (As the token enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. It enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
