  • Version 1.0b6
  • What's New:
    • It highlights the user's cards when it is his/her turn. Some people had trouble realising when it is their turn. Hopefully this will clear things up a bit :)
    • New Statistics window available through the File menu
    • New Reset Game option which puts you into a pre-game state. Available through the File menu.
    • Fixed a bug which would cause invalid cards to be dealt if the Allow Jokers variation was unchecked.
    • Some minor cosmetic improvements
  • Later that day...
    • Fixed a bug (I think) where the score board would be drawn outside of the window.

  • Version 1.0b5
  • What's New:
    • Squashed a bug which prevented the number of opponents being saved with the preferences
    • Fixed a couple minor cosmetic bugs
Thursday November 6, 2003
  • Version 1.0b4
  • What's New:
    • Medium and High skill levels
    • Saves Auto-Pass setting with preferences
    • Automatically selects cards to discard if the user is the Asshole or Vice-Asshole
    • New option to disable the ability to use the Auto-Play mode when in a networked game.
    • Plugged a memory leak
    • Squashed a bug which prevented the computer from Auto-Discarding when Auto-Play is turned on
    • Squashed a bug (I think) where, sometimes, the wrong person would be assigned the rank of "Asshole"
    • Squashed a bug where a player wouldn't get any cards if he joined a network game already in progress
    • Some of the fixes required me to make changes to the protocol, which means it won't play with older versions of Asshole II.

  • Version 1.0b3
  • What's New:
    • Network Play (YAY!)
    • Complete support for Unicode text under MacOS X. Mostly complete support for Unicode text under MacOS 9.
    • I've changed the way it saves the preferences, so preferences will be lost from previous versions.
    • Some dialogs have been changed into sheets for MacOS X
    • Some bugs fixed
Sunday October 12, 2003
  • New Icon and new deck of cards which doesn't infringe on anyone's copywrite.
    I am still looking for a better-looking deck if anyone is willing to produce one for me :)
  • This version has networking ability, however, it's quite buggy right now. Only the single-player game is reliable right now.
Tuesday June 18, 2002
  • A new Carbon version. Not much is different, but it uses Carbon Events now, and the Prefs Window, and Quit menu item should work fine now.
  • Discontinued non-Carbon version. Sorry, but it is too much trouble to support two versions. It will hopefully run on MacOS 8.1+, and should run fine on MacOS 9.0+ (With the newest version of CarbonLib installed).
