|Version 0.21||18-jan-2020||The previous version had some leftover debugging-code, which was creating a debug.mag file under certain circumstances. My deepest apologies. To make up for it, this version supports the MS DOS binaries from "Corruption" as well as "Fish!". Enjoy!||dMagnetic_0.21.tar.bz2|
|Version 0.20||15-jan-2020||This version is the 'Jinxter' release. It is now possible to play with the original MS-DOS binaries, and load old save games. Not only that: A bug in the sliding puzzle has also been fixed. It is solvable now.||dMagnetic_0.20.tar.bz2|
|Version 0.19||27-dec-2019||This version is capable of natively reading the binaries from the MS-DOS version of "The Pawn" and "The Guild Of Thieves". This allowed for showing the beautiful title screens, but also necessated in a new vmode high_ansi2. It is hard to explain what it means, so just check it out yourself. (Just start -vmode high_ansi2). |
Additionally, the Random Generator was given an overhaul. It is now possible, with "-rmode real" to have a completely new gaming experience.
|Version 0.18||11-nov-2019||Version 0.17 had an issue with the graphics: Certain installations were not showing any of them, due to the fact that there were two parameters in the .ini file that had no default values. At the same time, I took the liberty of removing some glitches in the textual output.||dMagnetic_0.18.tar.bz2|
|Version 0.17||28-jul-2019||Now that I am a member of the Guild of Thieves, I finally found some time to tweak the low ansi output a little bit. It looks awesome, and I will upload a bunch of new screenshots soon.||dMagnetic_0.17.tar.gz||MD5: e5228a6d0432ae6dc4184726fb47225f|
|Version 0.16||06-jul-2019||One user told me that he was not as pleased with the word wrap as one might think. Now, it is possible to read the text left-, block-, and right-aligned. (Whereas the last one is not really recommened. You see! ;) )||dMagnetic_0.16.tar.gz||MD5: 75768513c2c8737a09136efd7f539b0f|
|Version 0.15||08-jun-2019||So far, I have been mauled by a bear, eaten by viscious rats, choked by a constrictor, buried alive (because I tried hiding in a casket), stood on a square of the wrong color, beaten in hand-to-hand combat by an old frail man, and drowned because I did not drop the statue. Oh, and I also kicked the bucket.|
This version allows for configuration of the characters used for the low ansi and monochrome renderer. There, I also applied some subtle changes. Looks great!
|Version 0.14||30-may-2019||This version removed some graphical glitches in the pictures and the textual output.||dMagnetic_0.14.tar.gz||MD5: 637551533b7d61013a73930ff2e1e9f5|
|Version 0.13||24-may-2019||This version made the "low ansi" mode the default output mode. It works on all terminals, across all Unix platforms (old and new). If you prefer to have the richest amount of colors, feel free to use the "-vmode high_ansi" command line option.||dMagnetic_0.13.tar.gz||MD5: 496040ffb0d71b9a33c8f1a38073fec5|
|Version 0.12||21-may-2019||This version increased the amount of characters that are used for the low ansi mode. Pictures look much smoother and cleaner, even in low resolutions.||dMagnetic_0.12.tar.gz||MD5: 58deaf067b46b4c6e1e141dfad44a8fb|
|Version 0.11||19-may-2019||This version has an updated manpage, and can be build with BSD make. To ease access, the command line options were streamlined. There is also the possibility to write logfiles of your adventures.||dMagnetic_0.11.tar.gz||MD5: c084c1e3c8cdab70b4723aa37ec42027|
|Version 0.10||17-may-2019||This version saw lots of improvement on the low ansi output. I also added the possibility to set the graphics mode from the command line, for those who really want to try it out.||dMagnetic_0.10.tar.gz||MD5: 91682a13578ff5ea0ff25119b0aa1f39|
|Version 0.09||04-may-2019||Due to popular request, I tried my hand in connecting the engine to the GLK standard interface. It works!||dMagnetic_0.09.tar.gz||MD5: 9bc968603460ea6b6932ef10b55a119b|
|Version 0.08||30-apr-2019||This version saw a little bit of code cleanup. Graphics for "Corruption" and "Wonderland" are working. There was also a crash when trying to save the game with an empty filename. That has been fixed.||dMagnetic_0.08.tar.gz||MD5: d3574eec65463488379142d485d7c3ab|
|Version 0.07||28-apr-2019||This version allows for playing through "Myth". Thus, all Magnetic Scrolls games are supported by this Interpreter! Enjoy!!||dMagnetic_0.07.tar.gz||MD5: 2509259d98f05edd3e9f685582f16c31|
|Version 0.06||28-apr-2019||This version allows you to delve down into the rabbit's hole, and finish "Wonderland". Unfortunately, the graphics do not work, yet. But the story is as weird as you'd think. The code looks awful.||dMagnetic_0.06.tar.gz||MD5: 992ea0f8f6de195631fe0b8b184fc054|
|Version 0.05||27-apr-2019||Due to popular demand, I started working on "Corruption". Which is possible to finish. "Myth", and "Fish!" can be started, but I cannot guarantee that you will be able to play them through. For this game, the graphic format changed, and I will have to figure out what it is before I can support it.|
I also did some stabilization for "The Pawn" and "Jinxter". The code looks awful now.
|Version 0.04 ||22-apr-2019||The second release today... The last one was at 3AM. Just a little code cleanup. The default compiler settings are compiling with higher optimizations and full Warning flags. Just a little something extra. ||dMagnetic_0.04.tar.gz||MD5: 8cbc6be42d81bca2288c662014f98399|
|Version 0.03||22-apr-2019||This version saw more bugfixes. And I finshed playing Jinxter, albeit with only 185 of 205 points. I do not know if that is the end of the game, the virtual machine behaves bit-exact to the Magnetic2.3 version. Get the binaries from The magnetic scrolls memorial.||dMagnetic_0.03.tar.gz||MD5: 97e4010d700a5c4ad4e4eb59dc6322ca|
|Version 0.02||19-apr-2019||This version saw some bugfixes. I even started working on the documentation, and I strolled into "The Guild"'s castle. I cannot guarantee that it is possible to finish the game. Get the binaries from The magnetic scrolls memorial. Oh, and the low ansi renderer looks much better now.||dMagnetic_0.02.tar.gz||MD5: 4a1e5566d8149f5077bb182a054a60ce|
|Version 0.01||14-apr-2019||This is the initial release. It is possible to play through "The Pawn", but you will have to grab the .mag and .gfx binaries from The magnetic scrolls memorial . And I cannot guarantee that the game will not crash on you. Sorry.||dMagnetic_0.01.tar.gz||MD5: 3b65ee0fd977538a16a15da5e8c470d5|
