I've been meaning to look into those as I'm a big WC Privateer fan! So they never got finished? Such a shame.

OH MY GOD!!! :O

Looks like I don't have to worry about this unfinished fan remake anymore as it appears we've got an official Master of Magic sequel or Remake on way (courtesy of Slitherine who've bought the rights from Atari's IP dungeon and just made the announcement on their site)!!!

Guess this explains the mysterious Atari activities I noticed recently. Clearly they reacquired MoM so they could sell it to Slitherine for $$$.

I'm such a super fan of this 25 year old game that I run a MoM fans facebook group so as you can image I'm SUPER EXCITED about this news lol.

I can't can't believe that after all these years a real sequel just might be happening now. Sadly most of the old MoM forums are long dead so if there's any fans here who know of a good old MoM2 wishlist/feature request list out there please let me know and I'll go post it over on the Slitherine forums (which I've just signed up to).

They've probably barely started the project yet so now is the time to get fan feature requests and wish list items in front of their faces. If the remaining fan base doesn't speak up now then god knows what sort of game we'll end up with. So now is the time to act!

Blake00 I've recently made a video (as part of a up and coming Civ related games in HD series) touring what I feel is the best MoM fan remake project out there called Master of Magic – Implode’s Multiplayer Edition, a brilliant Open Source Java MoM engine rebuild that supports larger maps, up to 14 players (either Human or AI), and any modern resolution like HD 4K etc. The only stuff it's missing is AI and some good bug fixing and polishing.



Although sadly it's creator Implode has gone AWOL and the project has been inactive for a while now..

But hopefully one day he'll return to it, or someone else will finish what he started due to it being opensource...

Japo With DOSBox press Alt+Enter to change between full screen and window. Works with any game.

Ducula Hey,

I just managed to get the game to work with DOSBox, I've never played it before, it looks like great fun. One question: can I get it to run full-screen? I've scanned the last ten pages or so of this thread but haven't found an answer to that question yet.

Any help greatly appreciated.

And unfortunately, this is a sad reality for the old sites, true gems, which have been lost over time.
I almost finished uploading my personal data, only 01 External HDD to complete the task. *phew* *whew*

I was able to retrieve some data, as far as possible, using Recuva, but I believe the result was not satisfactory. *shrug*

• The fallen Paladin is allied to the Dark Mage;
• The old sage “predicted” the birth of the powerful Wizard of Chaos (Shenlong!?);
• etc.

Fortunately, that site came back and even brought another mirror site.

Greetings from Poke-man, Bonk! Bonk! Grand Micronaut marko River. ........

Yes, I agree with you. On the other hand, I point out again: the site shows information that not even Wikia shows. If you check out the “Hero Compendiumpart, you will notice that the site tells the background of each Hero / Champion. I do not know where he / she got this information, but whether it is official or non-canonical information, at least it adds more spice and fun to the game.
