The editor took a lot of steps forward. Recently we have completed the NPC rendering in our editor. Saving and editing still has to be implemented.
We still search for people willing to help move this project forward. If you have some free time and want to help our project, do not hesitate to join our forums and introduce yourself. We are searching for contributors in all areas. If you are a MAC or Linux user, please consider helping us out as a platform maintainer.
Mantis is retired and is replaced by Redmine. Please use this direct link until bugs.sumwars.org is redirected.
We have just release the next version, 0.5.6 ! It is available on the download page. Thanks a lot to all contributors who helped with this release.
I also want to announce Kulik as new team member and give him a special thanks. He created the new build system on basis of cmake and helped a lot with organizing and structuring the project. Such changes do not result in player-visible improvement directly, but they are invaluable for the long-term success.
Currently, we have package for Linux and Windows. A Mac package will be provided a bit later. Get them from the Download page. Have fun playing!

We are happy to officially anounce that Augustin (dezGusty) has joined the ranks of our programmers. We also want to use this occasion to give our belated welcome to Protogenes for restructuring our homepage. Kalimgard
Holy cow! We got a wiki and a new forum!
The architecture of Summoning Wars' internet presence was heavily restructured to provide a richer and easier to use functionality.
The main page is provided by a setup of the popular MediaWiki software to provide us with a structured and -hopefully- growing knowledge database.
The forum was replaced by a Simple Machines Forum but not without taking care of keeping all content.
All forum logins got ported to the new forum as well, so everyone can login with his/her usual name and password. The first time you log in the forum will update the way it stores your password and informs you about the change which makes it neccessary to login again.
Additionally the forum user database was coupled with our MediaWiki so you can use the same logins. To be able to login and edit pages in the wiki you need to be promoted to the "Wiki Editor" group of the forum. Ask the staff if you want to contribute.
We hope you enjoy the new presence and are awaiting the upcoming 0.5.5 Release. Protogenes
A preview version for Summoning Wars 0.5.5 is released for public testing and review. Get it on its download page.
Be aware of bugs - finding them is exactly the aim. Please test these under as many circumstances as possible and report any issues. Lastmerlin
Igor will work on ukrainian translations. He translated all text currently available and we look forward to his future contributions. Lastmerlin
