  • [Language] Updated translations : Greek, Norwegian.
  • [Tileset] Added the beautiful "Gargoyles" by 'Ren.
  • [Sounds] Added several sets of sound effects by Nicolas Mirland.
  • [Skybox] Added skybox "Majestic" by Mighty Pete, based on graphics by Adrian Farnsworth. Used with kind permission. http://www.planethalflife.com/wadfather/
  • [New] Added Skybox as an option in the Background types, as you can see. It looks much better.
  • [New] Added native support for Ogg Vorbis files. These are like MP3, but royalty-free and they sound about 25% better.
  • [New] Added a "Sound Effects" submenu to the Configuration menu. It allows you to change the... sound effects. This was much needed ! The sound effects as you used to know them are named "Kyodai" here. Please note that each theme will remember its own set of sound effects.
  • [New] Status bar text now appears by fading in instead of scrolling.
  • [New] The "Hint" feature now highlights tiles way more smoothly. Ugly-blinking-free Smile
  • [New] Added "TouchPad-friendly" option in the Configuration menu. When enabled, clicks happening less than one second after another click won't be registered, fixing an issue found on some laptop touchpad devices.
  • [Fix] Fixed temporary shadow issue when starting a Solitaire game.
  • [Fix] Now, the "Reset Options" start menu shortcut not only resets the options, it also resets the default theme to its original selection. This should fix any problem due to corrupted theme files.
  • [Fix] Made the game startup slower, to give the user some time to watch the background and relax.
  • [Fix] Fixed crash issue when launching the Layout Selector and clicking on "Edit" or "New Layout".
  • [Fix] Fixed crash issue under Windows 98 when using the "Change directory" more than once.
  • [Fix] Fixed possible crash at startup, caused when Theme files had their "Current" section point to empty files (such as "Background=").
  • [Fix] Fixed minor glitches when starting a Slider or Kumika game.
  • [Fix] Fixed a few issues with languages and translations.
  • [Fix] Fixed help file margins.
  • [Fix] Disabled function keys when the menu is opened. This used to trigger a blocked window that could only be closed by pressing the Escape key.
  • [Fix] KMJ now uses the Threaded Timer by default (you can change this via the Configuration menu). It caps the framerate to 100 FPS and allows the CPU to have better multitasking, and to avoid overheating. This fixes a lot of stability problems that users have had since KMJ started using Direct3D.

Actually, I'm a huntsman spider typing on this keyboard.  I have eight beady little eyes and it's a LOT of work to press these keys...

[EDIT]

I posted my picture recently - under the Spiders thread - am I cute or what!? Wink

Actually, someone else already used his picture as an avatar, I don't remember his name, he only posted a couple of times in a specific thread a few months ago...

May I update my 19.99 version to 20.00 version?

If so, how do I do it?

Thanks,

Vicki Coats

Hello vickicoats and welcome. Eheh

Yes you can. If you use the search at the bottom of the navigation bar and look for b3 you ought to be able to find the link to the latest 20.00 b3 download. (Nao has requested that we do not post the link directly!)

Download this installer and install should be all that you need to do. Eheh

Do note that this is a beta version so expect to find bugs until its offical release.
I would advise making a backup of the files for 19 before installing 20 just for peice of mind.

Hi vickicoats...

In case you can't find v 20:00 beta 3 ....

It is in Forums » Kyodai Mahjongg » My progress on the next KMJ...  page 24.

Further to what ant5 said... I would suggest that you install to a different directory than your v19.  i.e.  Kyodai Mahjongg V20.  That way, you will have both and can go back to v 19 if you have to.  Just a suggestion.  Smile
