LGeneral 1.4.3 Released
Sun, 08 Oct 2017 11:40:41 -0000

I fixed the weather (screwed in 1.4.0, was always fair due to wrong conversion) and added a minimap to the panel which is quite useful especially in deploy mode.

LGeneral 1.4.2 Released
Sun, 01 Oct 2017 16:12:25 -0000

I improved the rest of the GUI to get a consistent look with the new panel and simplified the scenario dialog so it's much easier to change the settings on starting a new scenario. I also fixed a number of issues I ran across while playing myself: no entrenchment for ships in harbors (ever tried to kick out a fully entrenched light cruiser with only artillery and bombers? no chance...), no unit deployment on impassable terrain (e.g. infantry in the ocean) unless it's the deploy turn where units get embarked and objectives are written in capital letters as sometimes hard to spot if a unit is on it.

LGeneral 1.4.1 Released

I made new icons for the GUI panel as the merely scaled ones lookd pretty messy and also made the panel a little less wide. Thanks to ales_dj who has submitted a few patches to fix compile/packaging procedure.

LGeneral 1.4.0 and LGEditor 0.3 Released
Sun, 27 Aug 2017 14:32:57 -0000

As 16:9 is standard now I decided to redesign the GUI a little. I added a fixed panel on the right side which makes usage hopefully a little less confusing with when and how to left/right click. Also to simplify things instead of many video modes 1366x768 is the fullscreen resolution (anything above doesn't make sense) and 800x600 the window resolution. Both LGeneral and the editor now use ASCII tokens in the resource files (but still accepting the old ones so no reconversion needed) which makes it a lot easier to edit files with a text editor as it removes the encoding issues with the old tokens. It is also possible now to add land, air, sea transporters to units in the editor.

LGeneral Editor 0.2 Released
Thu, 27 Jul 2017 13:39:53 -0000

It is now a basic scenario editor: You can change terrain, flags and units. On loading/creating only a map some generic scenario info is added. It still needs to be changed by hand with any text editor but as the most important things are handled by the LGeneral editor (well except for victory conditions...) it's pretty useful already.

Map Editor for LGeneral released
Thu, 15 Jun 2017 10:48:10 -0000

To play around with SDL2 and C++ (after a very long time...) I wrote a small map editor for LGeneral called lgeditor (it's in the LGeneral section). GUI and usage is very simple but it should work.

LGeneral 1.3.2 Released
Sun, 04 Jun 2017 09:41:05 -0000

A number of minor fixes and enhancements for AI and custom scenarios mostly thanks to Tez Bartlomiej.

LMemory got pimped!
Sun, 08 Jan 2017 17:35:21 -0000

I recently started playing LMemory a lot more as I forget a lot of things nowadays. Turned out to be quite fun (especially on the phone when waiting somewhere) so I went through the Tango Desktop project again to grab more icons and increase the number of cards on all difficulties (it's now 5x4, 5x6 and 7x8). Also icons are bigger now which is quite helpful.
