Server changes

We reached the conclusion that the server must undergo some fundamental and far reaching structural changes. During this phase there will be no changes on the server (except bugfixes and scripts).

The reason for the changes are the increasing problems with instability, which you surely noticed during the past weeks. Each additional change would decrease the server's stability, which cannot be a solution for the future---the longer we wait the more difficult it will become to carry out the needed changes.

You should not expect that these changes would bring any new features available for you. The changes will only lead to greater stability of the game. This will also have no effect on the known lag problem.

Over the past few weeks we implemented a lot of new features, many of which you do not know yet, so that it will of course be possible to surprise you. ;)

Client Version 25

After 543 days without client update, we release a new client today.
You will notice that a lot of graphics have changed, others are still the same and a lot of new graphics have been implemented.

There also are some technical changes and we had to compile two versions, one for Windows 2000 and Windows XP, the other one for Windows 98. The technical chances do however not affect gameplay directly.

Together with the new client, we updated the server as well, which will have influence on the gameplay. The consequences of death and dying have been changed, you will not lose skills so fast anymore and..., well, you will see. To prevent powergaming, skill learning was changed, too. Other changes will be discussed on the boards soon. - Windows 2k/XP client - Windows 98 client

Small update

We will update the server this night (central european summer time). Therefore, the game server will be down for some time (within some minutes), the homepage will work as usual during that time.

There will be minor changes in the game which you will notice soon.
