I like both versions. :)

Sounds cool! 8-)

Argh Pierre...please hurry, I must get my hands on the first KotC 2. module + the toolset as soon as possible. :D 8-) This waiting is painful. :geek:

Ah itsdat, you took the words right off my mouth :D


Hehe. :D Yeah, it's really painful to wait for the release of an awesome game like this. This is especially true in this case, since Pierre delayed the KS more times now + the turn-based cRPG market is so small sadly... :cry: [I hate the RTWP RPGs to be honest.] So basically I am waiting for 3 releases in this year. Number 1. is KotC 2. of course, followed by Realms Beyond and the Steam [graphical] version of Dwarf Fortress. -> https://store.steampowered.com/app/975370/Dwarf_Fortress
Perhaps I will buy Xenonauts 2. as well.

Cool! Thanks 8-)

Ahaha, these are exactly the same games I'm also waiting for. Plus, I tried Pathfinder Kingmaker, which is kind of cool for a RTWP (I'm not a big fan of this system either), but now I shelved it waiting for an upcoming TB mod.

Oh, it will have a TB mode? Now that sounds good. 8-) It will be "official"? I mean the developers will work on it or? [As I heard PoE II. TB mode is in beta now. I will buy that game as well when it will be fully functional.]

Unfortunatly it won't be official, at least for now. There is an official TB combat option poll on the owlcat forum, but it's not going well https://owlcatgames.com/forums/showthread.php?6167-Looks-like-POE-has-launched-a-turned-based-option!
The mod is "Bag of Tricks", and the TB mode is in the to-do list, so I'm not really sure when and even if it will be implemented https://www.nexusmods.com/pathfinderkingmaker/mods/26/?tab=forum&topic_id=7164166

Ohh, a new KotC1 patch... Good excuse for me to replay before KotC2 module 1. I used a traditional party the first time and determined the final optional battle was impossible with only one cleric and one mage, at least without extraordinary RNG blessings. Next time around I'll have three casters total.

Pillars Of Eternity 2 added a turn-based combat mode. Haven't tried it yet, but I've heard good things.

Yep, I mentioned PoE II. in my last post. Like I've said, I will buy it when the TB mode won't be in beta anymore. :)

Watch the trailer on Youtube: https://youtu.be/P7D5mhcLQH0

Great trailer! I have to say, I did not expect the animated gameplay to look that good, way better in action than on screenshots. The spell effects look good too, I was wondering whether the different melee damage types are also visualized by different effects? It would be great to have different effects for damage types/weapons like swords, blunt etc.... (I'm imagining something like in Ys 1 or Lufia 2)

Would be great to have the possiblity to use animated sprites and to have a module look like similar like that example screenshots from Fantasy Grounds. The method with different file names also sounds easy to use. :)
