Latest Update:
  • Attack Boni/Indicators: Up/Down pointing swords are shown on enemy targets to indicate if an attack is likely to succeed or not (based on current troops/defenses/kings). Implements: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5389
  • Chat Messaging for Teams (in-game teams): use "@team <message>" to send a message to all your team members in a game. Only available for team games.
  • Chat Messaging for Clans: use "@clan <message>" to send a message to all clan members in the chat. Only available to clan members.
  • Chat: will now fade in if the multiplayer section is entered if it was previously hidden. Can be disabled in the game's settings's by unchecking "Open Chat when Activated".
  • Game Info: popup that shows basic info when clicking on a game now also has a [Players...]-button that lists all the players in the game (without having to go to the game).
  • Cheating: we have added additional tools to investigate players using multiple accounts. We will flag/close accounts without warning. Please be vary.
  • Cheating/Guide Updated:You if you have only 1 device available to play the game, please share only 1 single account amongst all the players in your household, i.e. a sort of "family account".
  • Guide Updated: explaining the up/down swords indicating if an attack is good/bad.
  • Province Naming: reduced to 24 characters max. (from 36 characters max.).
  • Achievements: the "Win against Inhuman AI" achievement can now also be acquired playing the "Annihilation" type objective.
  • Translations: latest translations added - Thanks :-D
  • Admin/Cheat Investigations: global cheat search functionality (via Admin/Controller/[Investigate...]).
  • Admin/Cheat Investigations: improved data lookup to find better matches.
  • Admin Guide: updated with penalty guidelines for cheating & bad manner (similar forum).
  • Memory Management: reduced memory consumption and memory fragmentation (less crashes due to out of memory errors).
  • Networking: upgraded to a newer JVM (from version 7 to 8). Download the latest binary to upgrade.
  • Networking: removed the option to prefer the IPv4 stack (using DNS now). Might reduce connection problems? Download the latest binary to upgrade.
  • Networking/Performance: reduced data I/O while login in by about 100kb (faster logins/less timeouts).
  • Networking/Performance: reduced data I/O to and from server by 5 bytes.
  • Networking/Maintenance: integrated the latest networking libraries (Apache).
  • Server Backend: players can not also be queried by their internal ID.
  • Server Backend: internally used query functions added (e.g. for purchases/etc.).
  • Maintenance: misc. code cleanup (internally/no visible effects).
  • Bugfix: AI was trying to sell someone else's province :) Fixes: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=5468
  • Bugfix: map overview mini-views were too tall for certain maps overlapping GUI. Fixes: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=5481
  • Bugfix: onscreen keyboard was not always properly hidden when focus was lost!
  • Bugfix: selecting the ">" button on an already selected mail topic would make the GUI jump-scroll to a different position (now fixed).
  • Bugfix: preventing tournament events to be played on disabled/non-live servers.
  • Bugfix: the game could get stuck during startup when not all the installed maps could properly be loaded (synchronization error!?).
  • Bugfix: error reporter would not collect DEBUG-information, thus preventing it to report errors that were recorded as DEBUG (instead of higher level).
  • Bugfix Crashes: fixed multiple areas where GUI was modified outside the UI render thread (fixes misc. crashes).
  • Bugfix Crashes: selecting "viewed" for message received on same turn (logging error now instead of crashing).
  • Bugfix Crashes: while marking a message as read and the next turn already started.
  • Bugfix Crashes: opening user account/communication panel while not yet initialized or already disposed.
  • Bugfix Crashes: while no research icon was defined (via editor).
  • Bugfix Crashes: when user profile was still being loaded and accessed at the same time.
  • Bugfix Crashes: when an action could not be animated (just logging error now).
  • Bugfix Crashes: additional error output for framebuffer errors to investigate later (OpenGL).
  • Bugfix Crashes: when a game info returned was 'null' (maybe just deleted?).
  • Bugfix Crashes: not adjusting local game-timer to server time if offset is more than 10 years (will produce overflows/crashes).

It's for all devices. For mobile devices, it sometimes takes long to appear as an update. Nothing much I can do about it, but it should be able for download now!?
