YGOPro upcoming features preview

This is a status update about the features on YGOPro that I am currently working on. Just to give everyone a heads up before the next version.

To clear things up a bit first, Fluorohydride is the developer of the game. The features shown in here are modifications to his source code. Please don't bother him with questions about this article.

Integrated server 

One of most often requested. With this built in you no longer need to use hamachi or an external launcher. YGOPro will download the games list from one of the available servers (see also this tutorial about the chinese servers). After selecting a room and clicking on the connect button you can start dueling immediately!

As you can see in the screenshot the room list screen is still "barebone", but will be spiced up in the future.

I am still deciding on the server to use, it will probably be Mycard: http://my-card.in/

 

Custom resolution

YGOPro runs on a fixed size of 1024x640.You will be able to resize the window and play in fullscreen mode after this update.
Default resolution 1024x640

Running at 1680x1050
There still a lot to do before this is completed. Like high resolution pictures and bigger buttons to make use of the extra space. Also the deck edit screen is a pain in the *ss..


Other stuff

Some other features currently in progress
  • Advantage/disadvantage background music
  • Save sound and music settings
  • Anime cards (maybe)
A beta build will be released soon. Hope you will look forward to it! Just keep an eye on this blog.

This sounds very exciting. I can't wait to see the changes. :D

Hopefully Fluorohydride can get the card bugs fixed soon so I can go back to using this.

I cannot wait for this, because I really hate using Dawn of the New Era.

nitro_duelist said...

This is awesome. The Advantage/disadvantage background music is something I was wanting to see in a long time. this will be great, I cannot wait to the realese.

Jamezs Gladney said...

Wow! I was working on a similar project but it seems you beat me to the feature. https://github.com/Zayelion/YGOPro-URI Its nice to see that the game is updating so much, I hope that the you can add in the Chinese server and the american server.

Just make sure that you allow people to select their language, and possibly one day sort duels by wanted format.

laithnimri said...

Anonymous said...

Shinichi Kudo said...

Awesome Preview i can't wait for the release :D

Lucci said...

AMAZING, Percy! Thank You for your dedication.
About the program, the beast feature certainly is the fullscreen mode.
What resolution are you planning to put on the card pictures? Maybe the size of the cards from Dueling Network may be a good idea...
One more question: Is it possible to make a "skin" for the program? Like, the current version is so "default", the buttons seems like and the windows seems like windows 95.
And to finalize, can you put 2 options to connect? One via the server and another via Hamachi? This way, if the server goes offline, we could play via Hamachi...
Thank you for your attention, I hope your answer.

Percival18 said...

The original connection options will stay of course

Anonymous said...

Percy, can you help me to set a server in Russian?

GOOGLE BOY said...

When you lanch the update?

Samathan Gates said...

If you lauch it, Will you add cards that have a picture and confirmed effect BUT not out at the moments? (such us Number 91, 22, 69, 88) etc. Answer please!

sketch21 said...

i know im bungee jumping without the bungee cord with this question, but ill ask anyways. wold it be possible to get a server emulator for this game so that we can host our own small private servers... even if it holds something like 30 connections that would be enough.

husby said...

Excellent

Anonymous said...

nice one...
is this gonna support our own server?
if so
could you post any tutorial on how to make my own server?

and

how about joystick support?
sometimes i wish that I could play it like the one in the console version. xbox360 joystick or anything will be fine. :D

And then, some kc guys stole percy's works

nyapakid said...

percy Y U NO try your game can run in linux...

Anonymous said...

Agreed, the Chinese server is small and sometimes laggy, but dawn seems to be down more often then up.

Anonymous said...

What's this mycard thing?

Anonymous said...

Just use DAWN OF THE NEW ERA for better host,anime cards and such

Anonymous said...

So, will there be a full screen version?
Also, can you please make Dark Synchro monsters?
And for servers, can we use any server or just mycard?

dddd said...

I've asked this before (so I hope you don't mind if I say it again) but can you make it such that both players must have the same banlist to duel?

Would love to master goat control (lol). You could only do so much with your friends.

some missing feature
-change bg when field spell card activated
-win/lose record for each deck and overall
-for each update, add list "new card" in game
-avatar and new theme

felipeROx said...

I love that project, I cannot wait to see the open beta or something like that, and I would like to give my suggestion to making an auto-updater and a system to put release notes with the changes of the new updated versions. Thanks and good luck o/

James Norrington said...

Can I just ask about potentially including anime cards? I agree it would be a really fun, great idea, but could I ask how it be done- I mean would you have in the Ban List N/A, [date] and anime? and could anime be used with banned cards? or only in one format? given that there is no ban list for anime cards it should probably be possible to host duels where they are not allowed, given in some circumstances they could be unfair- furthermore, what are you thinking about doing for their effects- giving then the exact anime ones, or ones from Tag Force games? Also, if they had anime effects, would that means that separate anime-versions of pre-existing cars that have different anime effects (such as say Malefic World)?
Wonderful idea, just curiouse as to how this might work

Godslinger said...

All I'm gonna say is, if you take the time to throw in anime animes for 'whatever' play, at least make sure all of the other playable are in the regular database first. There are still a whole slew of them unavailable or missing, so it wouldn't make sense to commit to non-legal cards over real ones.....

Percival18 said...

Effects as implemented by Tag Force. What I mean is giving anime cards their own category. You will have the following 3: TCG, OCG, Anime

Percival18 said...

Sorry no I don't add cards

The Pope said...

OH MY GOD YES

AN ONLINE MODE

THANK SWEET JESUS

Blackcat Rule the World said...

how about chat feature. I mean it's hard for me to see when spectator chating because of dark background texture.
if I give any lighter background, then It's hard to see my opponent chat. :D

and do you would give it VS Computer feature?

Anonymous said...

If you add anime cards, please add Timaeus, Critias, Hermos and the rest of the cards from the "Waking the Dragons" saga.

Now that the Seal of Orichalcos is gonna be released in the Legendary Collection 3, it would be good a "Waking the Dragons" deck.

Oh, and the "Ride of the Valkyries" and the Valkyries from Zigfried from the "Grand Championship" saga.

please add some "Toy" card
