Yet another release of fheroes2 is here, keeping the classic Heroes of Might and Magic II alive with a modern recreated game engine and it's just simply great.

Overall it has significant improvements in gameplay, graphics and logic (including support for high-resolution graphics, improved AI, numerous fixes and user interface improvements).

Version 0.9.20 was released recently with these highlights:

  • AI logic was greatly improved, including fixes for incorrect behavior and related game's logic to population growth.
  • Expanded the list of translation with Turkish, Dutch and Romanian translations together with updating existing languages.
  • Added new button's font to support new as well as add translation for existing buttons in the game.
  • Add new proper icons for Petrification spell.
  • Add Handicap mode not only for multiplayer games but for single-player as well.
  • Over 30 bugs are fixed since 0.9.19 release.

Yes, I've given it a little try today. Worked for me on my new desktop, once I'd installed SDL mixer library.
