that's a crap load of changes and fixes, jebus! I will download the update and report back on how it is.
They've added a lot of retail things. When you update it asks if you have registered your cd key and everything. Just keep hitting proceed.
eww, that killed Anarchy Online. Plus Shadowbane's gameplay is weak. They need to develop the game for a while longer. A retail release at this point would kill them.
Wow. This new patch has mucho polish. Me like.
Training is a whole lot cheaper now. I can easily spend all my training points each level.
The combat sequences are faster paced.
The graphics are generally cleaner.
Still has loading problems. (lag for the lay gamer )
NPCs talk to you.
You can get information about training and stuff from NPCs. The game is more self-documenting because of this.
New window borders and stuff.
Sound on creation / char selection screens.
Some terrain is changed.
I made a character but the lag is pretty bad again.
server just went down 10 minutes ago
I noticed, are you mongo?
I'm still online going by Mor'Hyanda.
I'm running the updater right now, I might check it out.
I'm playing Sharina. Level 8 mage right now.
okay... I'm gonna reinstall (damn reformat)
I didn't get in to play, had to reset my password, then server was down. Tomorrow.
I started Elbereth (Elf mage) yesterday. I created Drognan (Dwarf healer) but haven't played him yet. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get to play.
I played until level 2.5. What's with the EXP bar now though? It doesn't fill up, and I can't see how far I need to get the next level.
it counts down. it tells you how much experience is left until your next level.
hit esc -> Windows. turn off your life and mana borders, and turn on the other window. i forget what it's called. there is a hybrid life, mana, exp window that is a lot better than the borders..
Ya, that's the window I used to use. I didn't mess with trying it, even though I know it's better. The bar I was seeing this problem in was the one in your character stats screen. It shows your exp number, but just stays empty (doesn't progress as you level, just shows the number).
