Re: New Launcher 1.0.0.34 / Neuer Launcher 1.0.0.34

Hi Nitram,

1) I am missing the ESC button in the client. That key should be connected to the same function when pressing "x" of the game window on the top right. How can you exit the game, if playing in fullscreen mode?

2) When I logout from the client and then relogin the same character, the character dialog (skills) is empty. Maybe a bug?

Best Regard,
Ragorn

PS: The update of the launcher worked very well for me.

Re: New Launcher 1.0.0.34 / Neuer Launcher 1.0.0.34

Hi Nitram,

* Some dialogs are transparent again, e.g. inventory, character. Not transparent is e.g. the depot ...
Okay, they can be moved now. The appearance is okay, if opened on a dark background. But the content is unreadable on bright background.
So I would suggest to keep it as it was before ...

* Just a hint: The link should go from the starting page to the news not vice versa.

Regards,
Ragorn

Re: New Launcher 1.0.0.34 / Neuer Launcher 1.0.0.34

Hello Ragorn,

this update only effected the launcher application. So the small application that is shown before the client is started. With the entries showing the latest news and current quests from the homepage.
The client that is downloaded was not changed. It is possible that the launcher did download the client again on some systems, because the libraries that actually handle the downloading and the management of the local files were updated and may did not understand the storage of the old version. But that should be pretty rare.

In any case. This update did not change the current client at all.
The issue with the windows that got no background is a bug. I am currently investigating why this is happening so frequently right now.

Regards,
Nitram

Installs and works fine for me on linux, except for one small issue. The launcher doesn't close itself automatically anymore when you start the client or one of the editor apps. I'm not sure whether this is a bug or intended behavior, but I find it a little less convenient than before.

Re: New Launcher 1.0.0.34 / Neuer Launcher 1.0.0.34

Whenever I try to update it, it claims that the program is in use: But I do not see any evidence of that from the task manager. Is it because I am clicking for it to add a start menu entry when it already has one?

This is intended and was implement by request. The news also says exactly this. :wink:

There may be a bug that detects any running instance of java as problem. Please check that there is no running instance of java.exe or javaw.exe

#me facepalms.

Everything's great then. I can live with this minor inconvenience if it helps somebody else so much that they bothered to make a request. Thank you.

I had this as well, I had to close a Java.exe that was running in my task manager then it went forward fine.

What are the benefits of this launcher over the old one?

It launches the client a little faster.
Also it has a newer java version embedded that has less security issues.
