Server Changelog 2011

From TalonRO Wiki

December 26th, 2011

  • Official Christmas Event begins
  • During tests, there was a problem with the Auction system which has therefore been disabled for the time being.
  • A huge merge of eAthena, rAthena, brAthena and eAMod. Many things you will not notice as they are bugfixes, but there are also some minor gameplay changes. If you are interested in seeing that changed, check this list, minus the Renewal updates of course.
  • We have updated the client to a newer version. This will affect a couple of things, namely:
    • You will notice a new Costume tab in your equipment window. For now, however, this is not being used.
    • Character deletion is now different. When deleting a character, you first mark it to be deleted. After 24 hours, you will actually be able to delete it. This requires the Birth Date that you have entered on registering or you can edit in the Account Options page on the CPanel. If you have not entered any, the date is probably 0000-00-00.
    • There is now an option in the Trading window that allows you to make a screenshot of the trade more easily.
    • Added Player Mounts! Oh yes, every class can ride a specific mount right now. You can not attack or use any skills while riding one, but you will get faster walking speed. You can, for now, buy the item from the Rental Master for 200 Rental Coins which has a duration of 1 week.
    • Due to how the new client works, the Rental Items as well as the custom Pets are now using Boxes. Buy these in the Rental Master and doubleclick them to get the item. The Kaho and PCB exchanger has also been changed to a menu-based solution. Unfortunately we were not able to get the current version back to work on the new client, so this will have to do for now. You can of course use the Headgear Previewer to see if you like a certain hat. You can still buy a new Kaho/PCB using the old shop of course.
  • We've gone through all the field maps that didn't allow you to save them with /memo. The following ones now have their nomemo flag removed:
