Upcoming Release - October 30th @ 12pm ET - (v3.1.0) #MakeUnderlightGreatAgain

Postby Koi-Seeker » Thu Oct 20, 2016 7:59 pm

Dreamers & Underlight Community at Large,

I am excited and humbled to make this announcement on behalf of the Development Team for our upcoming release. This will be the most feature rich update since the inception of Clash Of Dreams. Furthermore, this sets the stage, gathering momentum for what you can expect in the months to come, as we enter 8-12 week release cycles. The best dreams and nightmares, have truly, yet to come. To drive this point home, we are dubbing this release v3.1.0 #MakeUnderlightGreatAgain.

Before going into the patch release notes, I would like to take a moment to thank the Development Team for their individual efforts and collective contributions. This group is made of all volunteers who spend hours - late nights which crossover into mornings and long weekends - working on this project, to make dreams a reality. The server and client coding, level editing, initial testing, and server maintenance for this release was made possible because of them. Kudos to Taryag, Koi-Ajax, Koi-Dragados, Tony, and Koi-JorKyrin!

Thanks also goes out to the GameMasters who stepped up and continue to help with the ongoing testing.

Finally, thanks to all you, the Underlight Community. The dedication, the creativity, and the emotion behind your characters and storylines have helped to feed our enthusiasm and keep us pushing forward.

Without further ado, here are the release notes for the upcoming patch:

A special thank you goes out to all the dedicated GMs on the Koi-Team and to the community at large.

Our developers are often the unsung heroes of this project as they work away countless hours and nights behind the scenes trying to keep our little corner of the gaming world going. It is our goal to make Underlight great again by bringing new updates and content consistently while still keeping the original magic of the game intact. We have had quite a few bumps on the road but we continue to move forward. This is your game just as much as it is our project.

Also, join me in welcoming our newest members of the Koi-Team. Please be sure to show your appreciation for them as this update would of not been possible without them.

    Koi-Ajax - Development/Coder
    Koi-Dragados - Development/Level & Graphics Artist
    Koi-Echelon - In-Game Support/Communications
    Koi-Citadel - In-Game Support/Emphant Mascot

And lastly, we continue to dedicate this update to James Hite aka Lyacaon for whom without him, a big portion of this project would not be possible.

Let's work together on keeping Underlight going forward! After nearly 20 years, there is still no game like Underlight on the internet that brings you a true roleplaying experience.

I am Koi-Drama and I approve this message.

Sincerely,
Koi-Drama
Managing Director

Windows XP Compatibility

Postby Koi-Seeker » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:36 pm

Windows XP Players,

You know who you are! Here is a link to the Windows XP compatible build of the Underlight.exe and PMare.exe. Unzip the files in your Underlight directory and run.

http://download.underlight.com/Underlight-3.1.0-WindowsXP-Compat.zip

Please note this build has not been officially tested nor is it officially supported. Future releases, will NOT have compatible releases for Windows XP. Please upgrade your Windows operating system. The reasons to do this are plentiful outside of Underlight. Namely for your own security and privacy.

Dream well,
Koi-Seeker
