Release 2 Patch Notes


  • Several fixes were implemented to reduce memory usage.  This should help reduce random crashes and make the game playable for people on 32bit operating systems.
  • NPCs will bark less often so that they are less spammy.
  • Some NPC conversation text updates.
  • Top right icon that brought up a bug submission form will now redirect to the Release 2 bug forums instead.
  • Admin and whisper messages should now pop up your chat window when received if it was not visible already.
  • You should no longer see a naked male avatar briefly after making a new character.


  • Added option to invert mouse look
  • Added a sheen to items placed on the crafting table to make them easier to see.
  • Fixed missing textures in Kingsport waterfront castle


  • Improve right-click rotate camera controls.  Should be more consistent and fix players for whom it was too slow.
  • Fixes for a few exceptions that were occurring.
  • Fix for inventory icons being offset incorrectly at high window resolutions.
  • Fix for inventory icons not fading properly on bag close
  • Fix for an inventory list visual glitch.

    Thanks Dallas! Having a fun time play testing so far in R2! Can’t wait for R3, when multiplayer is enabled! :)

    Thanks, I have enjoyed the release so far and especially the crafting. I am having absolutely no performance issues playing in 5760 X 1200 surround, excellent frame rates. Running well.

    Awesome! I played again last night and found some more bugs and posted them. Thanks for the extension, it was appreciated.

    Thanks for the extra day! I had a blast running around the beautiful land of New Britannia (slowed down enough to post a few little bugs – that was our job after all). Can’t wait to get my inner gardener on and eventually setup “Rhiannon’s Plant Magic” in a new land!

    I like it a lot though obviously this is still a super super super Alpha Phase.

    Crafting was cool- though obviously you are going to need more tool tips eventually as things are really confusing at first.

    I’d like to see a combo gathering\crafting phase next maybe , so we can see how it works together- like how much our packs can hold and how much time each item will take. Per unit I mean as obviously you’ll gather more than you’ll need and then make a bunch.

    Lots more to see but good to see crafting a major thing.
