Fheroes2: Resurrection update v0.9.17 with improved Evil interface and AI improvements

Fheroes2: Resurrection update v0.9.17 audio was significantly improved since the previous release. We fixed issues with MIDI music playback delays on Adventure Map, multiple possible crashes with audio synchronization, extra sounds appearance in castle’s window and etc. Such cases were very rare but nobody likes a buggy game. As a bonus Freeman’s Foundry now has its own ambient sound on Adventure Map. Walk your hero nearby it to hear!

Evil interface finally got some proper attention. In the original game this type of interface was applied only to a limited number of dialogs. Fheroes2 team expanded the list and made some windows to have a proper “evil” look.

AI has been greatly enhanced in this release. The team added a new Courier role for AI heroes to focus on supplies delivery for more stronger heroes. AI now is smart enough to use Adventure Spells efficiently and also to estimate the number of needed heroes for the kingdom. Lastly, AI will defend its castle more aggressively instead of leaving them empty and defenseless.
