Back Online: Wow,
what an experience that was. But we're back now.
Change in Product Offering:
With the continuing successful sales of our Anthology CD we have
withdrawn the online/downloadable game Chapters. Due to an odd
convergence of costs related to Electronic Software Distribution we are
unable to provide the downloads for the same attractive prices now
offered for the Anthology CD by some outlets.
New eZine Article:
We've posted another Fan Contributed article in the new eZine HERE. Come have a read.
New eZine Launched: Long
anticipated but finally here. The new Fan Contribution Based eZine is
now online at the "eZine" link in the navigation bar on the
left of the screen. A few of the more active game fans on our Discussion
Forum have agreed to put their talents into various articles and stories
that will be featured periodically in our eZine. Come have a look, and
maybe see if you'd also like to add something original to the mix.
Anthology CD Update:
Rev:184.108.40.2068 (8 Nov 01) If you had installed a recent
version of the free Chapter 1 before you installed the Anthology CD,
then this update replaces those few files from Chapter 1 not compatible
with the CD.
It came to our attention that a debug cheat which
makes the Player immortal got released on the Anthology CD. We've
"fixed" the game by removing the cheat, and also took care of
a few other loose ends at the same time. Just click the update
button on the game loader for an automatic solution, or get more
This Update Version (8Nov) ALSO
removes the immortal setting from the Player if you have already used
the above cheat. This restores normal game activities.
Special Feature Pack:
To control the size of the download we're building this game
enhancement package in 2 parts. The new game engine technology (see more
here), and the related journal artwork, are NOW
available as Chapter Updates. If you Update the Chapter you are now
playing then the technical features will be activated. The Update
button on the Game Loader should handle this for you (or click HERE).
You will notice that the journals in the current
and newer Chapters have a different look. If you want all the journals
for all Chapters to be consistent with this look then you will need to
apply ALL the Chapter Updates, in order, starting with Chapter 1 (get
the updates HERE).
Add Cinematics to Siege:
We have built an additional "Optional Update" (just the 1
will work with any Chapter) to add the opening and closing
cinematic/movie animations to the game as seen on the Anthology CD
version. Get the update HERE.
New Special Feature
Pack: Almost Here! The retail Anthology CD
version of Siege of Avalon, now in stores from GlobalStar, added a few "enhancements" to
the game. These features will soon be made available for download
as a free "Special Feature Pack" for our online customers.
- New Party AI! Now you can issue specific "standing
orders" to your Party members to instruct them on what you want
them to do during the next combat situation. You can still assume
full control of any Party member, but now they will also act much
more intelligently when not under your direct control.
- New enemy health indicator, so you know how much damage you are
inflicting on the current combatant.
- Opening and closing animation sequences.
- Improved game animation speeds in areas where it previously tended
to be slow.
- A variety of other "most popular requests" from our
active discussion forum.
