  1. Developer Update 2019.02.20

    Hello everyone!

    I'm patching files today in preparation for upcoming updates, finally! These files will affect the Test Server build today and prepare the main servers for the changes to the creature system and other improvements.

    The first public patch in the series of upcoming patches will simply be a switch to the upgraded database and basic code libraries that were necessary. I just need to run some final checks on the Test Server before making this first patch live. ...

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    I've completed migrating and upgrading the server to use the latest versions of dependent software and libraries (primarily MySQL and DirectX). This was a grueling task as the old code relied on intermediate libraries that I had to remove or rewrite.

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Just a quick update for today. This week the server host company needs to run some maintenance and upgrades on the servers. The servers will be down briefly during these upgrades and I will announce down time in game with a 30 minute warning.

    I am wrapping up a few more features for the upcoming pet system and plan to resume public tests next Monday.

    Enjoy!

    Hello Xsyon Citizens!

    Many thanks to all of you that have helped test the upcoming creature updates so far. I've been patching regular changes to the Test Server to address reported problems and to further progress on the pet and mount system until it's ready for public release.

    There are still a few features that need to be finished before pets and mounts go to the main servers. Here's what I'm working on right now:

    - Final aggro and target selection system ...
