  1. It currently works very well (I've been playing the game on Linux for over 3 years now). You can either use the regular launcher via wine by installing some packages via winetricks (see for example Ultrakool's guide in the technical support forum) I also wanted to create a video tutorial for this for a long time but didn't get to upload it yet. There is also a shell script, which you can use as a replacement for the updater, which can be found in the official download forum post. This script can be used to update the game files, and then you can run the game easily via wine. If you need some more help/detailed instructions, feel free to ping, I am happy to help with that 🙂

  3. What if each node would give a small but noticeable Wheel of Gifts-like buff to all friendly units of that element?
  4. Hey there, we are currently still working on getting phase 2 out of the door. You can still join if you want, just hop onto the Discord and say hi 🙂

  8. The problem there would be what if you go into a 4p map and all players have completely different settings.

  12. The Skylords Reborn PvP AI programming contest - Phase 2 Hello fellow Skyladies, Skylords and other Sky-beings! The time has finally come - phase 2 of The Skylords Reborn PvP AI programming contest is here! Over the past few months we have been working on ways to program your own PvP bots and let them fight against each other and now it is time to bring your PvP and programming skills to the test! What is happening now? The API for programming a PvP bot is ready to use now and you is your time to put it to use. At the end of phase 2, you are supposed to send in the source code of your bot, so it can be entered into the tournament. We highly recommend you to join the Discord server, which we created for this event, since it lists all relevant resources to get your project started. Event Details Preliminary deadline for phase 2: 31.08.2024 (Might get extended if more time is needed) Link to the event Discord: *CLICK* Rules and specifications In order for you to be able to prepare your bot, we have composed a set of rules, which your submission has to satisfy. All PvP matches will be played on the map Elyon (spectator). The cardpool is limited to all cards, that appear in the free PvP decks, and they have to be on Upgrade 3. Exploting any bugs, glitches or other programming oversights may lead to a disqualification. You have to hand in the source code of your bot in order to participate. We will not distribute the source code without your explicit permission. The preferred way of submission is via gitlab/github, but other forms of submission are fine as well. The bots will be run on my personal computer. Here are some of its specifications and resulting limitations: (these specifications may be subject to change, but I will try to keep this list updated) AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor (16 cores, 32 threads) Each bot is limited to 8 OS-threads. Green threading is allowed. 16 GB DDR4 RAM Each bot is limited to use up to 4 GB of RAM. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics card Please contact me beforehand, if you want to do any GPU calculations. Operating System: Linux Mint 21.3, Kernel version 6.5 or later I will try my best to get each bot to run on my setup and will gladly help you with any compatibility issues/concerns you might encounter. What programming languages are available? Currently the following programming languages have an official example available: Rust C++ C# and F# Python There has also been work done by community members on implementing the following languages: Java (On an outdated version of the API, updates for types will be provided, if necessary) JavaScript/TypeScript (API types are available, but no example implementations) If your preferred language is not in the list, it is likely still possible to write an implementation of the API in that language. Just hop onto the Discord server and ask around! For Rust, C# and Python there are also tutorial videos available on YouTube. Some bonus to keep you excited Since the deadline of 6 months might feel a little long, we came up with a way to keep you in touch with the event for the next few months. Once every month, there will be a preliminary mini-tournament, where you can sign up the current work-in-progress version of your bot to compete with the others, so you can see where you currently stand. These mini-tournaments will not be streamed, but the results will be published. Participation in these in-between contests is not mandatory, so if you do not have a working version of your bot when one of them happens, don't worry - you will not be penalized for it! This means that you will have the chance to sign your bot up in 5 mini-tournaments before the big showdown at the end. Additionally, you can of course also ask your fellow participants for a friendly match between your bots. Instructions on how to run a bot You can find detailed instructions on how to run your own bot and the available resources on the event Discord. If you can't or don't want to join the Discord for some reason, feel free to contact me via a DM in the forums so I can provide you with the most recent version of the necessary files. Here is a quick rundown of how to run a bot: Special Thanks Big thanks to @Kubik for providing the technical stuff necessary to make this happen! Also thank you to everyone, who already joined the Discord server and provided constructive feedback to make the API better. Questions Reply in this thread if you have questions, we will answer them as soon as possible. Best regards, The Skylords Reborn Team
  13. Hey everyone, thank you already for the great interest in the event! We already had many people fill in the survey and join the Discord. The formal deadline set for phase 1 is over and we are currently working on making Phase 2 (the actual programming phase) happen as soon as possible. There will be a separate Forum post once it goes live. The survey will still be available for a while, so if you did not fill it in yet, now is your chance! In the meantime, please be a bit more patient. If you want something interesting to do while waiting, feel free to join the event Discord (https://discord.gg/2WNd4FbGVq) to take a first look the example bots and check out the API thus far.
  14. That Manabeast ... it has such beautiful eyes ... 🙂
