    I'm working on a return of my game Shugo.

    There are a few bugs that need fixing, such as army and spy movement on the map. If all goes well, I'll probably have that fixed tomorrow. I'll also clear the tables tomorrow, so all current registration data will be lost before beta starts.

    when will beta start?

    Beta will start after the bugs are fixed, which could be this thursday local time (CET), if everything goes as planned.

    what is new?

    -This beta version comes with a whole new Shugo game concept. It has a really neat map, made with Scalable Vector Graphics. The map kind of looks like a Civilization series worldmap. You do need an SVG capable browser to play Shugo, such as Firefox, or IE9, or lower versions of IE with an SVG plugin of Adobe.

    -Diplomacy system got a total overhaul.

    -Army movement is different from the old days.

    -and lots of other new stuff

    how do I join?

    The game is completely free. You only need to register, if you want to join.

    the numbers
    -140 playable clans
    -1031 regions
    -9 types of terrain
    -about 30 or so different buildings
    -about 20 different units (both military and espionage)
    -7 kinds of army formations
    -4 kinds of disasters and weather effects, such as: earthquakes, typhoons, rain and snow
    -and more...

    I'm still working on the movement bug. Somehow the ajax script doesn't do anything and I'm working out why.

    ...and I also found another bug in the diplomacy section.

    It looks like it may be friday afterall, or perhaps even as late as sunday, because I've got visitors this saturday, so I won't be able to work on the code then.

    thanks I can use a good beta tester

    OK movement works now! I can move, up, down, left and right.

    Only downside is that the army movement isn't an ajax script, so the whole map is reloaded, instead of only the armies. Luckily the map loads quick.

    I couldn't get the ajax script to work in the embedded svg file, somehow IE9 and FF4 has problems with that. Oh well, at least it works this way. If it is really bothersome, try zooming out (CTRL + mouse scroll key), then you'll be able to keep track of your selected army more easily.

    I've set the start date to sunday march the 4th!


    I still need to setup the cronjob, but that shouldn't take too long. Hopefully everything will work as it should, but I haven't tested everything yet, so don't be surprised if you find some bugs in this beta test. I reckon that beta test will take about 5 to 7 days. That's the amount of time and turns I think it will take to test everything.

    I noticed you're trying, I saw you login. :)

    Navigation in the game takes some getting used to.

    MOVE ARMY

    You use the arrows on the numpad to move around in the map (military view).

    But before you are able to move an army, you must select it. Go to the marshall (in the council, it's the guy on the far left with a sword in his hand). Click on your army and then set the army to select.

    Now with your army selected, go to the map. Press m to go to the military view or click on the military view link and then use the 4 (left), or 6 (right), or 8 (up), 2 (down) on the numpad to move around.



    I know what clan you took and you're located somewhere in the centre of Japan on the eastern part of honshu island. You should be able to see your army there. Your selected army looks like a yellow flower. Your unselected armies look like a blue flower.

    You're not that far from me actually. ;) You can find me slightly to the south of you. I'm just far enough so you can't see me yet. I'm in your fog of war.

    CONQUER

    If you want to conquer a region, then select your army and go to the region where your army is located and click on the little sword icon.

    BUILD

    Once you own a region, you should see a dropdown list appear with a hammer icon. It is best to start with a ricepaddy, because money is your first priority (koku is the name of the currency in the game).


    Once you manage to do this, then the rest should be relatively easy going.

    How about if I make the red color a bit darker, would that help?

    HTML Color Names

    like DarkRed or FireBrick or Maroon?
