There is a fan-created Dominion PC game available that has AI opponents and all non-promo cards in the game.

http://www.slightlymagic.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=61

This game is in no way endorsed by anyone affiliated with Rio Grande Games.

Thumbs up meeple

But ...... you should take that Black Market card out of there ninja

edit: and Envoy too ninja
edit2: and Stash arrrh (lol)
edit3: is it just me ... or does the dominion.exe have a card-back icon ?devil

final edit: Trash as well .... and in folder dominion/dominion/images are still all cards. I'd take that extra dominion folder out.
BTW.. isn't it possible to make the program without any cards at all and at first play let the program check if the cards are available or not?
When cards are not available , let the program download them from a website which is hosting the images anyway. I'm no coder nor do I know if that would be legal to do, but it might be an idea whistle

While this is all very awesome, I would love a Zombinion version as someone suggested on the other thread. But for the record, Jeff, you rule.

Is the Zombinion version just a re-theme or does it have different cards aswell ?

If it's just a re-theme and the cards are otherwise the same, you could replace the existing cards with the Zombinion cards.

It should be easy enough to just switch out the Zombinion card graphics... and then the only thing would be changing the terminology in the interface (Treasure = Aim, Buy = Target, etc.). I can get the card graphics together at the right size, but we should get permission from "Apparatus" and whoever at L4D before distributing.

I'd love to see the Discworld version. I don't know if all the expansions were mocked up though

May I ask, Is this legal? (I'm not really sure, since I don't have a clue about law really)

I'd suggest you contact a lawyer rather than ask on a game forum.....

I just want to say thanks for the effort you put into this game. I'm lucky I downloaded the one with pictures before Donald X. requested to take it down.

My 2 friends and I play Dominion regularly and this is a really useful program. I'm just having a slight alignment problem with it.



Any suggestions on how to solve it? I tried it with the old and new version, both looks like this.

Did you mean to say "lucky" or "disrespectful"?

Did you even bother to read the old thread about the fan-made PC Dominion?

May I ask for a clarification on how "disrespectful" my action seems to be? I would really love to hear an explanation on it and the legalities regarding it.


The new version without words work well but it isn't the same without pictures though. Re-implementing it with the Zombinion/Galaxy Trucker variant would go a long way.
Cheers.

Yes, since we can't use RGG's intellectual property, let's use somebody else's.

Try adjusting your screen size / resolution maybe? I'm certainly no expect in desktop issues, so I can't help you beyond that.

Card works right, just has the wrong text

The two are not mutually exclusive.

Exactly why I suggested it. Using the Zombinion art fixes all of the original file's problems -- using RGG's art. The gameplay would be unchanged.

Oh, and there would be zombies. Woot.

Then he'd have to get permission from Turtle Rock Studios who create Left for Dead or Rio Grande Games who distribute/publish Galaxy Trucker (or whoever they license it from) to use the artwork.

Respect has nothing to do with legalities. If the designer and publisher don't approve of distribution of a program using their art, then grabbing it and gloating that they managed not to stop you from getting it isn't showing much respect. But perhaps you don't intend to.

Basically using the internet is disrespectful .... 'cause it's almost impossible to not get onto a website that doesn't have any copyrighted content embedded for which the admin doesn't have any rights to use.

I was taught that "everyone else does it" is not a valid excuse for bad behavior.

Gardens never come up in a random match, ever. My friend and I have played many matches and it never appears. Might be a bug.

otherwise, great program.

I have noticed a bug with card selection as well. I have unchecked a few cards so that they are not included in random sets, but they still show up in the layout. Specific cards I have noticed doing this include Saboteur and Swindler. I exit the program and restart, and the boxes for those cards are unchecked, so the intended change is getting saved, but the cards are still showing up in the game.

Otherwise, agreed, this is a great effort!
