Chaos Groove V0.9

Finally an update!


Well, things didn’t go to plan as I was hoping to do a release in early January. Unfortunately real life and lack of motivation got in the way..

I’m afraid it’s doubtful if I will do another release except for one that includes the source code. I would love to do more work on this, fixing bugs, adding features and new spells. But I just have no motivation anymore, it’s nearly a year since I started this and I want to move onto new things now.

This latest version has quite a few new things though:

Bug fixes
Default ‘use desktop resolution’ mode in the display.ini text file
8 Different pieces of music
A lot of cool new comedy samples
Faster spell casting ‘missile’ effect
Victory screen/effect
Choice of Chaos Funk & Chaos Groove Spell pack
Many new creatures and spells in the Chaos Groove spell pack

Things to be aware of: Some of the spell chances might be a bit unbalanced, but they can be altered by you if you wish. The AI does not currently use the new non-creature spells intelligently..

The new creature gfx were contributed a long time ago by a guy with the nickname of Septimus. He sent me these great gfx, but they we both lost motivation and I never heard from him again. I haven’t smoothed out the new gfx or done proper spell icons. I’ve just got this release out for you all rather than spend even longer trying to make it more polished.

There is possibly some new problems with this release, but hopefully there won’t be too many bugs.

I will release the source soon, which although messy does let people develop it further if they wish..
