Onyx 3.5 is now available!
Onyx 3.5 is a major new revision to Onyx that introduces many new features, a redesigned game board, new actions, new options, and more!
Here is an overview of some of the changes in 3.5:
• Completely redesigned graphics, front to back.
• A new Market square, where you can spend your hard-earned money on all kinds of perks, from buying encounters with other players to increasing or decreasing the spice level.
• New game board options optimized for Netbooks and for large monitors.
• Changes in game mechanics; the optional "Money Rules" have been removed, and players must now spend money in order to change the spice level during a game.
This new release is a free upgrade to everyone who has registered Onyx 3. It includes a new Card Editor, with a redesigned user interface, a lot of bug fixes, improved compatibility with Windows Vista, and more.
Onyx 3.1.2 Now Available! (08-November-2012)
Onyx 3.1.2 is now available for download! This is a free maintenance release ahead of Onyx 3.5. This version fixes several minor glitches in Onyx 3.1, including:
On Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion," Onyx 3.1.2 is now compatible with Apple's Gatekeeper security system. Previous versions of Onyx might give you an error message that the application was created by an unknown developer, depending on your system security settings. Onyx 3.1.2 is fully compliant with Apple's security guidelines and will no longer give this error.
Important changes going forward: Onyx 3.1.2 is the last version of Onyx that is compatible with PowerPC Macs. Starting with Onyx 3.5, Onyx will require an Intel-based Mac. If you have a PowerPC Mac, you will need to use Onyx 3.1.2, which will still be available after Onyx 5 is released.
Onyx 3.1 Now Available!
Version 3.1 adds support for 64-bit Windows and for Windows Vista and Windows 7, as well as for Mac OS X 10.6 "Leopard" and 64-bit Linux versions.
3.1 also introduces one commonly-asked-for change: the cards and the timer for timed actions are now significantly larger and easier to read from a distance.
Onyx 3.1 is a free upgrade for all registered Onyx 3.0 users.
Notes for Windows users
For compatibility with Windows 7, the preferences file is no longer stored in the Program Files folder. For this reason, Windows users who upgrade to Onyx 3.1 will need to re-enter their registration information and serial number.
Because of a quirk in the way Windows Vista and Windows 7 handle installer permissions, in some instances on some computers the Card Editor installer won't install the Card Editor Help file correctly. I'm still trying to track down the cause of this problem.
Notes for MAC OS 9 Users
Onyx 3.1 is not available for Mac OS 9; the last version of Onyx which supports Mac OS 9 is Onyx 3.0.
