New client version 2.1.19


just now a new version of the client got released. In this new version there are mainly small changes.

  • Entering ALT-keycodes is now possible. Please note that the fonts used in the client have a very limited set of characters. Characters uncommon in the English and German language are likely excluded.
  • The design and the display time of the chat bubbles was changed.
  • Chat bubbles now move along with the character who spoke.
  • The inventory now contains a display that shows the current carry load of your character.
  • Rotating your character with the mouse and pressed ALT-key works again. The character also does not start moving after you release the mouse key.
  • Using the F12-key you can permanently show the names of characters. There are three possible states: No names are shown, the names of players are shown and all names are shown.

Have fun in Illarion!

Client Update to Version


It's been a long time since the last update and I'd like to release a small update now.

The update contains a bug fix in the option dialog. The controls now properly display their status after the tabs get switched.
Furthermore the problem that another character freezes in the running animation should be resolved. Those characters are now properly reset to the standing animation.

The last thing handled is the problem in the new movement system. The system shouldn't lock up anymore in case your character get reset because the target tile is already taken by another character.

Have fun
