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

New Installation Application


Again there is another major change happening for Illarion. We are taking the step to move away from the JAR-file that you have to download and double click to start using a proper installation.

On the download page you will find the required links for your operating systems to download the setup files. These setup files will install the launcher of Illarion along with a fitting version of Java on your computer. Also a proper integration into the start menu will be provided.

Users of Windows 8 and 8.1 will see the SmartScreen scanner of Microsoft that informs you that the application you downloaded could be dangerous. This is not the case. However, the scanner reacts because the file is downloaded very rarely. After clicking on "more information" you will be able to continue the installation. Hopefully this message will disappear once a sufficient numbers of people have downloaded it.

Along with the new setup files there is a update feature. The launcher will now inform you of updates that are available and will guide you through the installation.

Due to some changes in the directory structure, its likely that your settings will reset, but that will happen only once. The new directory for your user files is located in your home directory in the directory .illarion.

Have fun!
