    Rumsey's CPU Deck Modification: Featuring Top Decks from Top Players

    Hey everyone, the excitement of the first Player Tournament today inspired me to write this little tool. This tool is based on the work done in my other thread. What you're looking at is a tool that modifies the AI decks for offline single player testing. In future versions I plan to allow for fully user customized decks, but in the mean time I have the next best thing - the finalist decks from the first Player Tournament!

    If you followed the matches in today's tournament you'll know how exciting the final was between Yaemon and LyingDragon. In a best 2 out of 3 match, the first game resulted in draw when Yaemon self destructed killing both players and saving himself from losing position beautifully. Yaemon went on to win 2 more in a row making him the current Shadow Era Champion!

    This patch will allow you to test YOUR deck against Yaemon's tourney winning Majiya deck and LyingDragon's decisively strong second place Jericho deck. My hope is this will help casual players to improve their deck quality by testing against top decks without having to play bad redundant CPU decks or having to face off online against other mediocre decks.

    The requirement for this patch is that you are running the stand alone PC version of Shadow Era. Sorry Mac users (and portable players), maybe I can remedy this in future versions. You'll need to have logged in to SE and set up the deck you'd like to use. After that you need to close Shadow Era completely, run my program, and then launch Shadow Era again and click Offline in the bottom left corner. Once that's done you'll see Jericho and Majiya on the world map, click on them and you'll get a brief description of the decks.

    That's all for now! Enjoy testing against some of the best battle tested decks in the game. Leave comments letting me know what you like or hate, and if you're interested in seeing further updates to this tool.

    UPDATE: Now officially allowed!

    Thanks to Unfan for beta testing.
    Thanks to Yaemon and LyingDragon for use of their great decks.

    And thanks to Fiend for supplying such a good chatroom? Some people are so ungrateful. *tut*

    Anyway, awesome ^^ I think your first priority for the next update is to make it useable on Mac. That'd be a decent update, because it takes long (I think). Then next; custom made decks.

    Yes, Fiend gets a thanks for the chat fasho.

    Playing around with this, it's super easy to use, and the AI can be surprisingly decent with a good deck. It stall has many of the same old AI issues but whatevs. It feels like I can actually lose to AI now.

    Just trying out the patch and not sure if it's due to the patch or, more like, due to a known bug with the AI, but Medusil just petrified my hero. None of the AIs thus far deck Medusil too.

    This is a known AI issue. It does it with Jasmine too which some of the in game AIs do run. This patch doesn't actually change AI at all, just gives them good decks.

    Yea unfortunately that's an AI bug I can't fix. But hey, at least you figured out that bug isn't limited to just Jasmine.

    So what if he petrified your hero. XD Thats good. Any other hero with a weapon, it won't mean much, maybe 1 damage less. With Amber and Gwenneth, you can save that resource for attack

    Darn, I play on iOS. Be great if you could do a patch for iOS, rumsey.
