Title: New release: Kyodai Mahjongg 17.00
Post by: Nao on August 20, 2001, 00:00:00
  • [Language] Updated translations : German, Greek.
  • [Tileset] Added "Seasons", a Small Tileset with the new format (based on an idea by Marc Lesselberg). Also updated "Desert" to the new format.
  • [Great] Finally added a new mini-game ! It's called Kumika, and it's another pretty addictive game ! I spent a lot of time on it, I hope you'll appreciate it ! Read the Rules help file for more information on the rules and various options.
  • [Great] Added JPG support for Small Tileset files ! Also, the tileset size is now free, provided that tiles are always perfectly square. I recommend 64x64.
  • [Great] If you have an old machine, you will love this : I finally adjusted all animations (if I forgot any, please tell me) so that they have the same speed on all configurations.
  • [Cool] Added Save support to Kumika. I know it's not an addition since last time, but I just wanted to point this out... ;-)
  • [Cool] The "High-resolution textures" option is now linked to the Small Tilesets as well, offering a resolution of 64x64 instead of 32x32 when the option is enabled.
  • [Cool] Revamped the game selector. Just click on the "Selector" button to switch between a slightly modified old version of the selector and the new version.
  • [Cool] Improved some animations (most notably the scores - I also use a much better and more readable font for them now)
  • [Cool] Added an option in the View menu to simplify the menu. I would recommend to enable it if you're playing the game for the first time.
  • [Cool] When saving a game, the game's name (Solitaire, Kumika, ...) is automatically added to the filename so you can retrieve it easily later.
  • [Cool] Modified the menus so that the Small Tileset submenu opens on the left of the Tileset menu. I believe it's much less confusing this way.
  • [Cool] The 2D mode will now use exclusively the "normal" background mode. It's prettier and more logical, and on older 3D cards I noticed it doubles performance :-)
  • [Fix] Fixed a problem that deformed Small Tilesets and Hashira columns when a Large Tileset with a different aspect ratio was selected.
  • [Fix] Fixed two minor (but funny) problems that appeared when using the "Emphasize 3D" option.
  • [Fix] Fixed a problem that caused scores over 100.000 points to reset when saving a Slider game. I can't believe some people have so much time to spend on Slider :-)
  • [Fix] Removed the "None" background option and "Animate board while building it" (the first was ugly and useless, the second was ugly, useless and buggy).
  • [Fix] More minor fixes and additions.
