Unfortunately time is up and our story has to come to a close.

As university is finally over our development group have now all gone their separate ways and so there will be no further development for Orc Rising in the foreseeable future. I would like to thank most of Team Regicide for their commitment to the project as well as everyone from the moddb community who contributed in anyway to the site.

I wish you all the best of luck in future developments.
- Check out Fusion Shift (a new title in development by the programmer of Orc Rising and myself)
- Aswell as the AWAKE Team (a mod team that Callam has joined)

Awesome! Nice to know you got it working. Was there anything in particular you had to fix so we can improve future support?

Army control is currently probably the weakest part of the game as both our main testers in our team turned out to be completely useless to say the least.

The first step is to obviously obtain the resources and research needed for a particular troop type and then build some.

As it stands at the moment the army can only by controlled by first assembling a squad. This locates all grunts assigned to that squad wondering around the town and orders them to grab their gear and assemble at a specific point.

(A) Squad selection menu button
Doublecrossstudios.co.uk
(B) Assemble squad button
Doublecrossstudios.co.uk
(C) Right click to move newly assembled squad to target destination.

We tried to advise on troop movement in the loading screen tool tips, the dialog at the end of Orcs Rise (tutorial level) and even in the in game read me. Doublecrossstudios.co.uk
Still seems to be confusing people too much so we'll see what we can do.

Also I agree with you on the controls system. They aren't the most user friendly but they're not far off. We'll see what we can do about the middle click ;)

By the way, WASD act differently to arrow keys did you notice that?

Hi, sorry for the late reply.
You shouldn't have to download 5 programs.

You should only need:

- Orc Rising (latest build)
Indiedb.com

- XNA Redistributeable 4.0 (framework for windows games)
Microsoft.com

Very sorry to hear you have had problems. Nobody else has had to download/install any more than this to our knowledge. What else did it say you needed?

New build will be going online as soon as our programmer is out of bed. 100's of bugs have been fixed over the last few days and all but the final level are completely playable.

The install you need for the xna is .net framework 4 which most people would already have as it is needed by many things. I did not require another install for .net framework though so it was just 3 installs for me.

The new build is already 10x better so might as well wait for the next upload if you don't have the game already. We have to hand it all in tomorrow so will probably be made available to public late tonight if not soon after.
