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.

Have fun in Illarion!
