    This is the development thread for the online version of Flash Duel (as opposed to the physical board game). I'm Thelo, the main programmer behind fantasystrike.com, and I'll post all updates to the game in here. Please report any bugs you find in this thread.

    Here are the basic controls of the game:

    Your hand is on the left, and the table is on the right.

    In rulesless mode:
    - Drag cards to your hand, the table, the discard, or the deck as needed, or drag your character.
    - Double-clicking on a card is a shortcut for "play to table".
    - Click on an ability to use or replenish it
    - The top-left shelf stores extra "tokens" you can drag to the board, for the Clockwork Soldier and Landmine abilities. You can also drag your character there when you get hit in team modes.

    In rules-enforced mode:
    - Click cards to abilities to play them.
    - Sometimes, click buttons as prompted.

    The rules of the game are here: http://www.sirlin.net/fd/rules

    Don't be afraid to report bugs and problems - we actively want to improve, and will never punish you for explaining bugs. When reporting bugs, don't forget to give as much information about the bug as you can. Screenshots and excerpts from the game log are often useful, and help me fix bugs faster.

    Enjoy the game!

    -- Deathstrike Dragon now has animations
    - Status icons are shown a bit higher for Rook and Troq, to avoid hiding their faces

    2012-08-28 update:
    - Quick Matches and Leaderboards. Flash Duel quick matches are a single game of the Full mode, played for 3-of-5 rounds. Flash Duel rankings are like Yomi and Puzzle Strike's rankings: they're effectively shared between all characters during Student ranks, then get split between characters during Master ranks.
    - Custom games also get rematch buttons at end of game, insetad of needing to do a manual New Game every time
    - The profiles now show your total Flash Duel time played and Flash Duel rankings

    2012-08-24 update:
    - Flash Duel Replays.
    Basically a straight port of Yomi / PS replays. Every game is automatically recorded on the server and assigned to the players involved, and you can replay them by going to the profile screen or through a replay link. Replays feature step-by-step play and also let you jump to any given step instantly.

    2012-08-23 update:
    - Landmine now uses the icon UI rather than the choice buttons
    - UI shortcuts for the main action phase:
    -- To attack with a pair or stronger, instead of clicking 4-Attack-4, you can click 4-4 directly
    -- To dashing strike, instead of clicking 4-DS-3, you can click 4-3 directly
    - Fixed a graphical glitch for the Dragon's hand cards during a discard reshuffle
    - In the Dragon Raid mode, the mortals now correctly only draw back to 5 just before the Dragon's turn, instead of at end of turn. (Exception: Fast-Forward Time still lets you draw to 5 before taking your extra turn.)
    - Some gamelog cleanup, for better readability
    - Moved the distance indicator below the game board, to prevent text overlap with the phase description on small screens

    - Fixed AI crash
    - Fixed disappearing Gwen sprite
    - Fixed Dragon Form not working

    - Fixed yet more text rendering problems
    - Fixed incorrect distance indicators in the gamelog, like "(d: 7)"

    2012-08-15 update:
    - New scheme for the main action phase. Rather than choosing between Move / Attack / D.strike / Push, then choosing a card, then (for moves) choosing a direction, you first choose a card, then you click the desired action icon on the game board. This speeds up moves and makes actions more visually obvious.
    - Fixed some problems with the displayed ability cards on the first turn of a new game, if a bot plays first
    - Fixed a lobby bug that could make you lose control of the room
    - Fixed a problem with text rendering

    - +1 bar at turn start
    - +0.5 bar on defense

    UM AWESOME

    As I'm dicking around with this, I don't see a way to differentiate between the four basic moves. As the Second Edition makes the distinction between the actions and cards played for the actions, has that been thought about yet?
  5. Thelo

    Thelo Administrator Staff Member

    In rulesless, you can pretty much indicate which one it is just by moving your pawn accordingly.

    At 4 distance, you play a 4:

    - For Move forward: You move your token 3 spaces up (adjacent to opponent pawn).
    - For Move backwards: You move your token 4 spaces back.
    - For the Dash part of a dashing strike: You move your token 3 spaces up (adjacent), then play one or more 1s.
    - For an Attack: Do none of the above (this is the 99% case).

    At 1 distance, playing a 1:

    - For Move backwards: You move your token 1 space back.
    - For a Push: You move the opponent's token 1 space back.
    - For an Attack: Do none of the above (this is the 99% case).

    And that should cover all the cases. For the upcoming rules-enforced modes, the game will ask you to clarify any ambiguous moves.

    Ok in regards to getting back the Card from Political prowess. Can I use Two Tuths and/or Flagstone Tax and then take the card back from PP?

    If you don't shrink the website navigation bar (by clicking the arrow next to the login button) the character select screen is too small to see all of the characters.

    Because random picking is not yet enforced, I will not be surprised when uses Menelker's "Into Oblivion" to destroy an opponent's unused ability on purpose and claim they have randomly made that choice.

    EDIT: I should not be surprised about this fact since the game is RULELESS, but I am concerned about the usage of this ability in the upcoming Flash Duel tournament here.

    You just use /random 3 and they use the Xth one from the left. It's fine.

    I think there has to be a little trust in rulesless - any of the "draw and reveal" abilities can be abused too. If you really don't believe your opponent is honest then I think at present that the only way around that is having a trusted referee watching all draws and carrying out random rolls. I can't imagine that anyone would cheat to win a for-fun competition though, where's the achievement in that?

    This was already reported I think, but when I was in a Yomi game and clicked the Flash Duel tab, there was only gray.

    If BBB uses steam vent against lum, and lum rolls the dice, he still has the option to dashing strike, when steam vent says it prevents dashing strikes

    Flashbot freezes when he has to discard a card for Vendetta's Stunlock ability.
    But he has no problems discarding a card for Menelker's bonecracker.

    Current server implementation forces the loser of the previous round to go first while the rules say that the loser of the previous round should choose who goes first.

    I attacked scarbo's arg as setsuki. He used BS to retreat. I started my next turn without drawing to 5.

    this happened again the next game. Arg/Suki seems to be bugged.

    Shoulder Ram should make you keep the card you draw, but it currently does not.

    Shoulder Ram does not put the card in your hand.

    JAINA
    Flame Arrow does not hit the opponent, it instead gives a message about how she can no longer attack and hangs.

    LUM
    If he tries to use Roll the Dice as part of a Dashing Strike, it instead gives a message about how he can no longer dashing strike and hangs. Possibly happens with attacks too.

    VENDETTA
    Surgical Strike is put in chatlog as Stunlock.

    I played Roll the Dice, drawing a 1. I chose to use it as the dash, but it said "Cannot dashing strike anymore, returning to main action phase...", and started my turn again.

    Speed of the Fox currently allows Setsuki to move while she is recovering from Two Truths.

    I'm a star member, but I don't appear to have access to Flash Duel or the expansion characters for Yomi.

    Just to make sure you haven't missed basic things:
    To access Flash Duel, click the gear above the chat log to access settings, then set "See beta games" to Yes. It should appear in a tab next to Puzzle Strike.
    To access expansion characters for Yomi, press Shift+B on the character select screen of a custom game. Remember that these are still in development, so they will not work in QM.

    According to invisime, "blocking a pair with a pair seems to result in a hit anyway." I have also encountered this bug.

    Also, Acrobatics still lets Vendetta retreat from a Dashing Strike (and survive) while he is on his start space.

    Gwen's Shadow Plague draws to 6 even if she has 5 cards in hand.

    Also, a couple of things I'd like to see:

    UNDO BUTTON: Please oh please, misclicks really really suck. Also a warning like "Are you sure you want to get hit by x?" would be good for misclick of the pass button.

    GEIGER: If the discard only has two cards in it, Echoes from the Past should automatically give him the cards if the ability is not countered.
