PC Modding Beta now live!



Author: krakauer, Chucklefish Programmer

Hello everyone! Today we’re doing a public beta of a long awaited PC feature, modding! We’ve been testing it ourselves, but as you are all much more creative than us, we’d really like your help to break it as much as possible while creating cool mods!

How do I access the beta?

Good question! First of all – back up your save files!

Next, you’ll find the beta is available on Steam by using a beta branch. In your Steam library, right-click on the Wargroove entry and select “Properties”. In the “Betas” tab, you should see a drop down and a textbox. In the textbox, enter the password ‘caesarisagoodboy’ and click “Check Code”.



If the code has worked, you should be able to select the ‘public-beta’ option from the drop down box. Once you’ve done that, Steam should install the beta and you’re ready to go!

How do I make a mod?

I have written a document to help you get started, which you can find on the Wargroove wiki! (Is this document just a thinly veiled attempt to get my dog more Instagram followers? Answer: yes). In addition, we’ve created a few little examples that you can find by following the file path C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Wargroove\modpacker_bin

How do I share a mod?

Once you’ve created your mod, it should have put itself in your Wargroove appdata folder. You can probably find this at %appdata%/Chucklefish/Wargroove/mods. Copy the folder with your mod name on it and send it to a friend! They just put the folder in the same spot in their appdata folder.

How do I use a mod?

Custom Maps
If you want to create a modded map, go into a custom map and open the main menu. Hit the branch new “Mods” button, and you should see a list of your installed mods.



Just flip the switch for the ones you want to use and change the ordering if you need to. Hit “Save and Reload Map”. This should reload your map with the mods on. The “Add to Mod” button is for packaging maps within a mod, and you can read about it in the document linked in the “How do I make a mod?” section.

Local Multiplayer
If you want to use a mod in a map that already exists, go to local multiplayer and select the map. In the “Match Settings” window, hit the “Mods” button, and you should see a list of your installed mods. Flip the switches for the mods you want to use and change the ordering if you need to.



Hit close when you’re done and you should be using your mods!



Online Multiplayer

The only modded maps that can be used in online multiplayer are maps that have been packaged within a mod. All players must have the same version of the mod installed. If you do, when you go to host a game you should see the modded map available. Anyone with the same version of the mod installed can join the game like normal.

Will console versions receive modding tools?

Unfortunately not – this is a platform restriction we don’t have control over, so modding tools are a PC only feature. Console players will not be able to access any custom content or join any online matches which use PC mods, and instead will see an error message.

I have more questions!

I’ll be on the Wargroove discord today to answer questions, and I’ll be available as long as I’m near my computer!

Something is broken! How can I report it?

First of all, thank you! We’ve set up a forum post to collect feedback HERE. You can also post on discord, but please post on the forum as well so that it doesn’t get lost!

Happy modding!

v1.3.0 Out Today! (Korean, new features & bugfix patch)

안녕!

Today we're launching patch v1.3.0 which will primarily introduce Korean as a playable language. Thanks to our friends at Shloc for working on the Korean localisation!



This patch also contains a few new features and lays the foundation for PC mod support. Also included are some bugfixes, which you can find details of in the Version History section of the wiki - warning, version history includes some spoilers.

Here's the full breakdown of the new features added in the latest patch:

  • Add 'delete progress' option to the campaign menu for downloaded Campaigns
  • Add hotkey to change Players in Map Editor; users can now use Spacebar to toggle between players when placing units.
  • Add ‘Duplicate’ to Triggers, Flags, Counters, Conditions and Actions in Event Editor
  • Removed Weather from Quick Play
  • Added Korean support

You may also be excited to hear that we're planning to start the PC mod beta next week. We'll let you know more information and how you can gain access the beta once we have a specific date set, so keep those eyes peeled!

Lastly, don't forget to submit your map designs via the Wargroove subreddit for the chance to claim the next Community Choice Award winner! If mapmaking isn't your thing, you can also show your support to fellow community members by voting for your favourite by upvoting their post on the thread.

감사드리며 재미있게 즐기시길 바랍니다! Chucklefish 개발진 올림.

About This Game

Command an army, customize battlefields, and challenge your friends, in this richly detailed return to retro turn-based combat!

When war breaks out in the Kingdom of Cherrystone, the young Queen Mercia must flee her home. Pursued by her foes, the only way to save her kingdom is to travel to new lands in search of allies. But who will she meet along the way, and what sinister challenges will she face?

Choose Your Commander!

  • A vibrant cast of 12+ characters! - Commanders are at the heart of Wargroove - each with their own distinct personalities and motivations.
  • Four warring factions! - Take up arms with the Cherrystone Kingdom, Heavensong Empire, Felheim Legion, and Floran Tribes.
  • Campaign Mode! - Follow the story of a fresh-faced and inexperienced young Queen on a quest against unworldly forces. Told through animated pixel art cut-scenes and dynamic battles.

Get into the groove!

  • Unique ultimate moves! - Commanders can use a special move called a ‘Groove’, activated only when their Groove meter is filled to 100%.
  • Dynamic Gameplay! - Every Groove is unique to each Commander and changes up the battlefield in an entirely different way.

Create your own adventure!

  • Craft custom maps, cutscenes and campaigns! - Make the game your own using in-game editors.
  • Advanced editing tools! - The possibilities are endless; from creating your own story-driven missions with sub-quests, plot twists, ambushes, and hidden secrets, to easily changing the rules of the game without any mods or external tools.
  • Share your creations online! - Share your own maps and campaigns or download content built by other players!


  • Online Play!

    Send your units to victory in both local and online multiplayer skirmish battles, with competitive and co-op play, as well as complete rule customisation.
  • Arcade Mode!

    Learn more about each character you encounter through a trial of boisterous bouts in Arcade mode, where you’ll fight 5 different opponents in quick succession.
  • Puzzle Mode!

    Outwit the enemy in Puzzle mode, using all of the strategic skills in your arsenal. Take on a series of tricky challenges where the goal is to win in just ONE turn.
  • Secrets and Unlockables!

    Earn stars to unlock special content. You might even stumble across some hidden game features - old school style!
