Warcraft III 1.29 Patch and Wanderers of Sorceria Updates

Postby RazorclawX » Wed Apr 11, 2018 4:05 pm

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne has updated to Patch 1.29. However, with these changes came a number of other changes that altered how older custom maps work and Wanderers of Sorceria is no exception. I am in the process of updating all the maps to accommodate these changes. All Books are updated with the following changes:

* Ayame and Kasumi have new models. Ayame is now sporting a tinker look instead of a school uniform and Kasumi now has her classic look when appropriate (the one she has up to Book 4, Book 5 still has the emo haircut)
* Kosseimaru's Raise Dead skill has a new hotkey.
* Kurumi (Summoner)'s nuke spell Soul Blight is now based on Forked Lightning instead of Finger of Death.
* Chaos Bladers now use Soul Blight instead of Death Coil. Chaos Bladers in Book 3, Chapter 3 cannot use Soul Blight OR Death Coil, so Bannon can't get nuked anymore.
* Book 3, Chapter 5, 7, 8: Cannon Towers can no longer be built by the Jin Army.
* Book 5, Chapter 3, 8: Cannon Towers can no longer be built by the Jin Army.
* Book 5, Dragon Slayer Arena: Chaos Soldiers and Chaos Bladers have normal stats. Thakras, Kabala, and Xaax no longer speak their obnoxious sound bites.

Updated 4/14
* : Book 1 Hero Selection improved. You can now see what abilities each Hero has. Select the Intro in order to access it. All selectable campaign Hero Classes are done at once for anyone who beat Book 1 at least once.
* : Added back the class for Shizuka for achieving the Feat of Strength 'Solidarity' (and hence all the 'Solidarity' story sequence makes sense again). Added a new Hero Class for Kurumi.
* : Hero Class Revival Hotkeys made universal per character
* : Book 3: Losing a Summoner Duel in the tournament has its penalty changed to only affect the Duel Hero alone. Each duel lost gives a different penalty costume. Consequently, you can now Forfeit a duel if you want to humiliate Shizuka (requires beating Book 2).
* : Book 3: Fixed potential crash from one of Shizuka's extra models
* : Book 4 Hero Selection improved. You can now see what abilities each Hero has. Select the Intro in order to access it.
* : Book 5 Lizardmen received model updates (Gluma Lizardmen). Vindicators now have a training Hotkey as expected. Stats of all Lizardmen units changed (more like nerfed).
* : Book 5: Hikaru's Secret Class now deals Chaos damage along with the other Classes as intended.

Known Issues
* All animated textures (Water elementals, waterfalls, Cinder!!) no longer function. This is a Warcraft 3 issue and I can't fix this, sorry.
* The display for ability cooldowns are not functioning correctly.

If you've run into any other errors please let me know. I can only quickly fix what I know is broken and I can't reasonably fix everything but the thing most obviously stopping anyone from playing at the moment.

News for 5/18/18

A bugfix version for Wanderers of Sorceria 3rd Edition is now available. All maps were updated to be compatible with patch 1.29 for TFT and also feature the majority of the bugfixes done with the 4th edition, with no graphical changes.

In particular the changes to fix Achievement taint and make Flamestrike usable on Trees were fixed so you can finish the campaign.

News for 11/16/18

Wanderers of Sorceria 4th Edition updated with the following changes:

* General: Models for Ayame, Chika, Kanna, Kagero, Kotetsu, Kurumi, Miranda (Pop Idol only), Six, Scaldar, Zava (see next note), Shizuka (Zande Witch only), Shyron, and Tendaro updated.
* General: 'Nara the Shadowpath' is now called 'Zava the Merciless' as it should be. Most instances of the name should have been changed appropriately, but let me know if you find any references to her old name.
* General: Splash screens for Shyron and Scaldar updated.
* Book 1,2: Fixed Blade Kraken graphic in the intro cutscenes.
* Book 1: Chapter 2 Crypt Fiends should no longer cost Food when burrowed.
* Book 2: Fixed the random Stoneskin Gargoyles so they're all statues once again. Gargoyles are still not useable in this campaign.
* Book 2: Fixed a broken reference to Zava's name if you watched the intro cutscene the whole way through without skipping.
* Book 2: All Pit Lord Heroes, including Brutillus, no longer have Reincarnation and therefore won't run away after reviving.
* Book 6: Free Mode Shyron abilities changed to something less random.
* Book 6: Removed the random Sludge Monstrosity creep from the secret mission. There should be no Creeps on this map.
* X1: Fixed Kurumi's model so she's armed again. I don't know how I messed that one up.
* X2: Fixed civilian models' walk animations.

News for 11/23/18

Wanderers of Sorceria 4th Edition updated with the following changes:

* Books 1 through 6: Fixed Scaldar models (Spider Lord and Dragon Armor) scaling and attachment issues.
* Book 2, Chapter 7: Fixed missing Queen Arcadia in cutscene.
* Book 2, Chapter 8: Fixed missing Shizuka, et al. in the last part of the ending cutscene.
* Book 6: Fixed more references to Zava's name.

KNOWN ISSUES: The timing of the cutscenes in Books 1 and 2 are off; that will take much more time to fix either on my end or on Blizzard's end in fixing the sound engine.

News for 11/24/18

Wanderers of Sorceria 4th Edition updated with the following changes:

* Books 1 through 6: Fixed Miranda and Kurumi's Pop Idol models which were missing animations. That's what you get for not being careful enough with version control.
* Book 1, Chapter 2: Restored the missing Nerubians in Corona. Restored the missing town villagers and Miranda's dance. Moved a couple of the villagers around so you can actually talk to them, instead of having them being hidden by the town buildings.
* Book 1, Epilogue: Random items can no longer drop during the Summoner Duel.
* Book 2, Chapter 2: Restored Blight Carrier and other missing NPCs on the map. Removed the Mur'guls in the northeastern part of the map. Static Zande, Demons, and Satyr now belong to the faction Arcadia's Chosen instead of being Neutral Hostile (they still drop gold).
* Book 2, Chapter 6: Renamed the faction Zande Rangers into Arcadia's Chosen. Zava is instead part of the Tower Guardians faction (functionally this doesn't change anything).
* Book 3, Secret Level: Fixed missing Kurumi in cutscenes.
* Book 5, Secret Level: Fixed missing critters.
* Book 5, Chapter 6: Removed a problematic rogue Footman that somehow got on the map.
* Book 6, Nexus District: Fixed the missing Goblin Merchant.
* Book 6, West District: Moved quest ping for Kurumi's version to the underground altar.
* Book 6, South District: Fixed missing Harpoon post and Magma Serpents.
* Book 6, Sorceria Core: Fixed more references to Zava's name. Added more Free Mode intros to the final boss with Dalles, Metallus, Abolisher, and the five possible remaining Sorceria governors (generic to all of them) in addition to Gina's version. The final boss hates filthy aliens and monsters. Removed a rogue model.
* Book 6, Secret Level: Removed all of the Rat critters from the map. Critters are also not supposed to be on this map.

Amusingly, I found an item I hid in the Chapter 2 town I completely forgot was there. It's only a Greater Healing Potion, though.

News for 12/17/18

Wanderers of Sorceria 4th Edition updated with the following changes:

* General: Model updates for Cinder (God of Fire), Zule (he has HAIR! no more male pattern baldness), Gunther, Kasumi, Abolisher, Yue Fang, Miyuki, Sypha (human form), Kazgaroth, Ebon, Bannon, Spiderling, Nerubian Stinger, Mastyrial Warmage, Mastyrial Guardian, Queen Corona, Spinorak, Velcana, Chitinstrike, and other misc Nerubian Heroes ('Warriors', 'Rogues', and 'Casters'). Fixed Scaldar's model. Fixed Nargul's model.
* General: Fixed Nekurow's movement speed animations. Added support for various Heroes to accomodate Walk Fast animations. Abolisher's Necromorphosis has a slightly reduced cooldown and costs no mana and Raise Dead now costs only 25 mana.
* General: Added Gainaxing effect to the following front-heavy girls: Kasumi, Zava, Shyron, Sorana, Kotetsu, older Kurumi.
* Book 1, General: Book 1's Campaign Menu screen features Hikaru instead of a generic footman. Upres the texture for Hikaru's default sword so it doesn't look like a pixelated piece of crap (as much).
* Book 1, Book 2: Spinorak's Hero abilities are more story-appropriate than just straight Dreadlord abilities. Thunder Lizard creeps replaced by Jormungar.
* Book 1, Chapter 2, Epilogue: The Crypt Fiend NPCs in Coron Nerub are now living Nerubians matching their Book 2 appearance. Crypt Fiends are explicitly a product of the Army of the Dead-raised undead.
* Book 1, Chapter 2: The side quest "The Plague" is rewritten assuming that the malady is in fact a curse and not a disease.
* Book 1, Chapter 4: Mastyrial Warmages automatically start with all spells available.
* Book 1, Chapter 5: The Forge is unlocked along with the associated units when completing Ayame's side quest.
* Book 2, Chapter 2: Nerubian Webspinners are correctly available to train.
* Book 2, Chapter 4: Pre-placed Spitting Spiders replaced with Webspinners which supplanted them on the tech tree.
* Book 2, Chapter 7: Mizuki now has abilities to directly summon beasts instead of running to COPs. Replaced the Salamander Summon with a Stinger Scorpion and Blade Salamander with Blade Stinger.
* Book 2, Chapter 8: Fixed Czarzeau's model in the cutscene to match his previous appearances.
* Book 3, General: Book 3's Campaign Menu screen features Zule instead of a random red orc. Kagero and Kotetsu now have their own maid models (instead of the generic one) as their 'civilian' clothes. Kasumi and Kurumi also have similar 'civilian' clothes. Count Zule employs ninja maids.
* Book 3, Intermission 1: Jin Archers are now using the correct model. Depite the fact that Zule's Chaos Legion doesn't use Blood Riders anymore, one is still used here because it's not been revealed he's behind the attack yet; see below.
* Book 4, General: Changed the Blood Rider's model to the 'alternate' Death Knight model that's been laying around forever because it looks better.
* Book 4, 6: Fixed Shizuka costumes (Gothic Lolita, Alice cosplay). Fixed Kurumi (Zande)'s face. Vektra Prawns are now Vektra Harvesters (and therefore should no longer be confused with Summoned Prawns).
* Book 4, Chapter 7: Fixed Zava's name.
* Book 5, General: Book 5's Campaign Menu screen features Yue Fang instead of a slutmog Shizuka.
* Book 5, Chapter 1: The Nightblade's name is now fixed to Chitinstrike to match with the Achievement criteria.
* Book 5, Chapter 2: The Nerubian Army no longer owns the Airship Drydocks or Airships, and therefore will no longer attempt to defend their base with Airships. The Airships will still defend the Drydocks as usual.
* Book 5, Chapter 3: Fixed Yue Fang's mounted model's crappy animations. Added a new path between the Chaos Legion base and the main Arcadian base.
* Book 6, General: Book 6's Campaign Menu screen features a 'better' model of Shizuka. Free Mode Shyron given the correct version of Starfall (the one Shizuka uses in her 1P and 2P version from Books 1 and 2); she's now supposed to be mostly reminiscent of Shizuka's earlier ability set.
* Book 6, X2: Reduced the size of the Idol and Faerie skirt attachments so they aren't comically oversized. Slightly improved the Holiday outfit leg textures. Improved Holiday outfit skirt for Shizuka and Kurumi.
* Book 6: Changed Scaldar's Burrow Charge ability to be based on Dark Portal instead of Breath of Fire. Arctic Blast is now based on Breath of Fire instead (functionally this doesn't alter the ability).
* X1, X2: Changed Vance's Berserker Slash to be based on Dark Portal instead of Carrion Swarm.
* X1, Chapter 4: Added and moved some doodads to reduce the possibility of getting stuck behind obstacles you shouldn't be able to walk over.

Generally the Chaos Legion Heroes are arranged as follows: Zule's army uses Draconian Lord (Varaskil), Draconian Oracle (Kengal), and Kunoichi (casters and strikers). Generics use Blood Rider, Chaos Judge, and Chaos Giant (which only appears once because reasons).

TO DO: Sazabi, Jenna. Sazabi is Zandalari and Jenna is semi important and needs an update badly.

Maybe:
Jarek, Draconian Oracle, Shadra, Zande units. Shadra is also Zandalari, but she's very unimportant.
