Hello players,

Today there were again a lot of updates.

The Client got improved support for MacOS X and some minor bug fixes. Notable is that the bug that prevented the chat log to be expanded is now gone.

  • Minor addition made to NPC Borgate Northoff
  • The slime feeding quest in Runewick now uses white eggs that can be collected in the wild
  • Treasure maps are now able to be dug while in your bag

New Launcher:

Hello Players,

It has been a long time since the last update of the launcher for Illarion.

In this new version the speed to detect the current version of the application has been improved and the launcher now stays open after an application is launched.

In addition to that, there was an update of the installation application used by the launcher. The new version 6.0.1 contains a lot of improvements, many of them for the MacOS X operating system. At this point we'd like to say thanks again to the people over at ej-technologies who provide us with this software for free.

The version of Java that is bundled with the launcher was also updated to Java 1.7 update 72. The update closes some security problems in Java, but those problems are not relevant for Illarion. However, better safe than sorry.

We also want to remind you that the support for Windows XP is running out soon. Oracle will drop the support of Java 7 at the end of April 2015. This means we will perform an update to Java 8 at the beginning of May 2015 and Java 8 does not support Windows XP anymore.
