File History
Tue, Feb-21-2006
-Now cheering differentiates between friend and foe. When enemy team members are KOed there is a cheer, but when the player's teammates are KOed it gives the "awww" sound (louder "awww" if the player is KOed)
-Joke NPC hero "Michael" added: weak in general but runs fast, and can handle a pole like none other
-Source files updated in ""

Mon, Feb-20-2006
-New crowd noises in every match. Crowd shouting at start of match, cheers when someone is KOed other than the player, an "awww" sound when the player is KOed, and a longer louder cheer when the player wins a match.
-Reworked the jousting match to split it into two (one mission template for each round) and cleaned up it's code some more. Some of these changes seem to have fixed the "Player not placed on scene" crash. <fingers crossed>
-Jousting armor weakened slightly to make melee round less of a hassle if you lose the first round
-I converted the arena team textures down to remove alpha; saves on file size of mod with little difference to quality (since little metal is in arena team armor/shields)
-Source files updated in ""

-Invisible team armor/shields should hopefully be fixed now, let me know if it's not
-Team shields boosted from 200 to 300 to last longer
-Rewards to Marnid and Borcha after battles reduced by 1/4 (to 3X instead of 4X)
-4 team matches have one less horse per team (pear mace+shield on foot now) to improve scene performance
-Lance used in joust doesn't do quite as much damage now, thus lower polearms proficiency gains from joust
-Scene terrain codes had to be updated to look right for .731, so scenes were rearranged to fit the new terrain
-Jousting melee round didn't properly weaken one weapon loadout; fixed
-Jousting scene is duplicated to a second copy for the melee round as a test to try and fix the "player not placed on scene" crash
-Source files updated in ""

Thu, Jan-19-2006
-Joust now includes a second melee round on foot, where competitors who were unhorsed are weakened

-Joust scene improved a bit in various small places
-4-team arena scene now has grate blocked off by wood to ensure nobody can get out
-BRFs and textures redone to take less space and be more compatible with combining into other mods
-heavily commented source files updated in ""

Sun, Dec-18-2005
-jousting arena scene decorated somewhat by -GandalfTheGrey

-slightly improved framerate in 4-team, smaller terrain map
-fixed grate for 4-team to block exit
-Marnid and Borcha are now rewarded after each successful world-map battle stage, getting somewhat close to 4x the number of enemies defeated for gold and XP both

-new Fortified version of the regular arena scene by Taurandhir
-new 4-team arena scene by Taurandhir
-new jousting scene, currently rather bare
-1v1 jousting match gives full jousting equipment and warhorse
, is timed, and resets the sceneafter 15 seconds for another pass if neither opponent is KOed (prevents circling)

-new "watched bet lost" dialog
-tournament master tells you what team you're on after you choose a match
-split in menu for standard (regular 2 team) matches and for more exotic matches (like 4 team)

-Regular battles (not in the arena) will no longer auto-exit, allowing you to stay as long asyou want
-all ranged ammunition increased a bit
-"undead version" is no more

-Now tournament master tracks wins, losses, and win percent

-2 different downloads, one with undead and one without to please everyone.

-All arena combatants now get leather gloves. This fixes the undead "plastic hand" effect.
