Hegemony III: The Eagle King & Update 3 Now Available

By rob,

The first major content expansion for Hegemony III is here. The Eagle King goes back to the roots of the series with an all-new historical campaign following the Greek King Pyrrhus of Epirus and his wars against Rome and Carthage. It also includes an expanded map with the island of Sicily, a new invasion sandbox, a dozen new factions, all-new naval units, war elephants, and more.

Along with the new DLC, we've also released the third major update for the base game that includes expanded naval combat, new tutorials, and a lengthy list of minor changes that you can read about here.

Tread Marks 1.7.0 now free and open source!

By Rick,

That's right! We're releasing a new build of Tread Marks, and that's not all, we're also celebrating Seumas' masterpiece by completely releasing all the source code! I'll cut right to the chase: you can get the Windows installer here and you can download the source from GitHub here.

The updates in this version are mostly aimed at getting it working on Mac and Linux, which is a side project I've been toying with every now and then for the last several years. It's very nearly there. It compiled on both platforms, but there's some bugs that need to be sorted out. So if you're interested, go ahead and download the source, take a look at the BUILD.txt file, and see if you can help.

Here's the changes:

* Now free and open source!
* Initial work on porting to Mac and Linux.
* Replaced Miles with OpenAL.
* Replaced most Win32 code with SFML and Qt.
* Resolution list now lists all valid resolutions, and defaults to desktop resolution.
* Settings now stored in .ini file instead of registry.
* Now checks for master server at tmmaster.longbowgames.com instead of an IP address, and checks automatically when server screen is opened.
* Added support for headless server builds.

All casual games updated!

By Rick,

As of today, all of the casual games we sell, from DX-Ball 2 through Vortiball, have received an updated. The changes are:

* Fullscreen mode has been updated to work better on modern hardware.
* Any games that used shareware-style registration no longer need a serial code. Now they just have separate demo and full versions.
* If you're connecting to a custom server, Rival Ball and Rival Ball Tournament now accept DNS names instead of just IP addresses.
* Rival Ball Tournament Expansion Pack no longer requires Rival Ball Tournament.
* Various bug fixes.

To update, just log into the Download Centre and grab the latest version. Enjoy!
