New Version 1.2.3
3 months; over 20,000 installs. Thanks everybody for your support!
Read below for previous version notes:
I've called it 1.0 because it actually does what I set out to do.
It'll stretch the map out, and remove the frame edge.
More improvements on the way.
I've left development notes in the discussion forums
for those of you who like to read.
If not, that's ok as well. I'm just happy 'peeps are using it.
The latest version is improved, let everybody know.
It should install fine, but I've read that initializing jQuery doesn't always occur on the first attempt.
If this is the case, you can uninstall the script from Greasemonkey and install again.
That should do it. If not, leave a note, and we'll get in touch and work it out.
New version. 1.0.3
Extended room for chatting, alliance members, and knights.
Background is now green for a better view for your eyes.
New version. 1.0.5
Coordinate box near middle of screen for easier access.
1000 installs in 2 weeks! Good stuff.
New version. 1.0.6
Removed a few more of the distractions,
"get more gems" "beginner protection" notice.
KoC fixed their broken alliance info at the bottom of the screen,
so that's viewable again.
I've been looking into swapping up the iframe code with jQuery,
but it doesn't seem to do much better,
so I'm leaving that part as is for now.
I've been trying to target the background color for the chat area,
but when I change that, it stretches down to the bottom of the page,
so I'll have to keep tinking with it before I roll that out.
I may put a "tell your friends" in where the "beginner protection" was,
and I'm still trying to get the Army and Defense tabs
to show up on the first Supply tab,
so you can see everything going on in your town at once.
I'd also like to get it to default to the Alliance tab
instead of Tournament, but it's kinda tough to do
with a Greasemonkey script.
New version. 1.0.7
Nudged the Building and Training queue timer to the side.
Figure anyone who wants a wider map 'prolly has room to spare over there.
New version. 1.0.8
By request, made the map overlap POC-Helper menu for greater visibility.
New version. 1.0.9
Moved the troop march meter over,
because it's always in the way of the map,
and sometimes in the way of buildings and fields.
Tinted the coordinate box "cadet blue"
so the numbers stand out a bit from the background.
New version. 1.1.0
I realized the coordinate bookmarks are tough to read on a blue background
so I changed it to "burly wood" a tan color that looks similar to
what they use for the chat rules and weekly item box.
New version. 1.1.1
'beginner protection' notice returned,
because it seems to disable the watchtower alert.
New version. 1.1.2
Brought the queue timers back where they were, but nudged 'em down a bit.
Looks more like the original game layout,
but are less likely to overlap your map and buildings.
1 month; 2000 installs.
New version. 1.1.3
Modified Leaderboard button,
because one user said it didn't show up right in his browser.
Hope this works, let me know.
New version. 1.1.4
In honor of a plant that served a defensive purpose in the days of kings and castles,
this version includes a theme I'd like to call "Dark Thistle."
I am of Scottish decent, so I learned at a young age that thistles stopped invading armies.
For educational purposes, a small snippet from this site:
"The prickly purple thistle was adopted as the Emblem of Scotland during the rein of Alexander III (1249 -1286). Legend has it that an Army of King Haakon of Norway, intent on conquering the Scots landed at the Coast of Largs at night to surprise the sleeping Scottish Clansmen. In order to move more stealthily under the cover of darkness the Norsemen removed their footwear.
As they drew near to the Scots it wasn't the only thing hiding under the cover of darkness. For one of Haakon's men unfortunately stood on one of these spiny little defenders and shrieked out in pain, alerting the Clansmen of the advancing Norsemen. Needless to say the Scots who won the day."
New version. 1.1.5
Got a request to return tabs to top of screen. Wasn't certain why,
then I discovered the newest version of the KoCAttack script needs them up top.
New Version 1.1.6
The map is not wide in this version, but the rest of the functionality is preserved.
Note: KoC updated their game...
I'm glad they do, that means progress on their part,
however, that means more work on my part trying to make the map wide again...
So I'll look into it, and get an update as soon as I can.
New Version 1.1.7
This will work with the new version of KoC.
It's a basic fix as I did with the beta versions,
so it stretches the map to 1280 pixels wide.
I'll look into making it auto-detect the width of your monitor
in the next revision. I wanted to get this version out quickly
so people could still use KoC-WideMap as they usually do.
New Version 1.1.8
Works with the newest version of KoC.
Auto-detects map width.
Let me know how this works for you.
Oh yeah, ads may show up at the bottom of the screen if you scroll down all the way.
I usually use AdBlock Plus, so I don't normally see them.
2 months; over 7000 installs. must be doing something right :)
New Version 1.2.0
Moved "Fantasy Football" banner down
Removed "Progress Bar" if that happens to take up screen space.
Attempting to make it work better with other languages.
I realize that the Merlin box may be covered
by the Leaderboard button in the non-English versions.
I'm working on this right now, and will roll out a fixed version,
as soon as I can figure out where it's located for each language.
New Version 1.2.1
Works better with other languages now.
Made text fit on tabs.
Moved the Merlin box down,
so Leaderboard shows up properly.
New Version 1.2.2
Fixed the gift page.
Now keeps "Facebook Chat" on top, for better messaging.
