Illarion and Java 7

Fellow Illarionites,

Since a few days the version of Java that is proposed by Oracle is version 7u4. We advice all players against updating to this version and stick for now to Java 6.

One thing is that the Client for the game server is not confirmed to work stable with Java 7. Another thing is that there are massive problems with Java 7 and Windows Vista and Windows 7 that result in Java being unable to connect the the server in case the computer doesn't use a IPv6 connection to the internet. And such connections are rare at the moment.

Editors are back working

During the last days (some may have noticed) the easyNPC and the easyQuest editor did not work. The problem that caused this is now fixed and both editors work like they used to.

Hello, Illarionites!

TechTalk: Semi dynamic quests with easyNPC

Fellow Illarionites,
next wednesday, 02/01/2012 at 19:00 GMT, another TechTalk is scheduled. The purpose of a TechTalk is to interest you in the development process of Illarion and display interesting topics to you.

The topic of this workshop is 'semi dynamic quests with easyNPC'. Dynamic quests are characterised by a different plot and different starts for every character. Semi dynamic quests are a hybrid form of quests with static elements that are placed dynamically.

The workshop will treat the basics of quest placing and advanced possibilities of easyNPC. If you want to prepare yourself for the workshop, you can find some material on the forum:

The workshop will be hosted in the #illarion chat.

See you on wednesday!
