Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Strangely, they seem to have a better chance of a successful cast than I do...

Starting strategies

I didn't see a thread about this in this forum yet, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've been playing Master of Magic for quite a few years now, ever since I got it back in 1995. (Even the dreaded move to Windows XP couldn't stop me - I bought an old Pentium 3 rig off someone and made it into an ol...

I've read that Famine has no effect on computer players since they cheat so massively in the food department. I used the little MoM shell to find this out when I decided to take a look at how the enemy wizards played. I think near the end of the game one of them was down 130+ food.

Okay, I'll probably just have to find it out again. I've found that the saved game format is really just a snapshot of the game's RAM at that point (minus the actual program/media data) and understanding the saved game format might help to understand why MoM does some things the way it does.

Ah yeah, never thought about it that way. You could always make it a slider instead, then. Speaking of sliders... the way you've implemented them in the options menu for sound/music level (which seems to have no effect right now, by the way) and the ones in the Magic menu is very odd. They don't rea...

Button Options suggestion

For buttons you left-click on to increment the value, think you could make it so right-clicking decreases this value? For example, human player count, etc.

Armageddon

I didn't find this out until just now, but apparently the chaos spell Armageddon also affects the unrest of everyone's cities. They should document these effects... Edit: Huh, returning back to this it appears there was a set of manual corrections. But I own the 1.0 version of the game, so they must...

I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned Crack's Call. It's stupidly, obscenely overpowered. I think personally, most modern games are way overbalanced. It's like the saying "I'm special, just like everyone else". Perhaps, however they don't want any such decision to be completely game-...

Haha, this happened to an opponent in a recent game I had. That island doesn't even HAVE room for another city. :P

I want a refund.

I don't know how this happened, but I ended up with a 4 opponent game where 3 of them were on Arcanus with me and didn't conjure or create any sea or flying units, were located on small islands, and their starting cities weren't on the coast. The other guy was located on Myrror and for some stupid r...

Saved Game Format

I can't seem to find the saved game format anywhere online. I've seen it before (in a really nice HTML format at that) But it seems to have disappeared.

Resizable windows

I'm sure this may be far off, but how difficult is it to allow resizing of the game window? My screen's native resolution is 1280x1024, and as such you could imagine that the game screen is really tiny and difficult to read.
