    Greetings Avatars,

    Just like in Release 38 during Release 39, the Offline Mode save game format is changing to support new and upcoming gameplay features.

    Here’s what you need to do in order to preserve your Offline Mode save games and characters:
    • Patch your game client to Release 39.
    • Load each saved game and then re-save. This will convert your save file into the latest format.
    If you do not convert your saved games during Release 39, your saved games (from releases prior to R39) may not load in releases after Release 39. In other words we cannot guarantee the ability to load pre-R39 saves after R39.

    Our sincere apologies if this change causes any disruption in your gameplay. We always make every attempt to avoid having to make these kinds of requirements of our players when we make changes like this. After very careful consideration, we’ve deemed this change, and the accompanying requirement, as necessary. Please note that this change will not affect the online game or characters in any way.

    As a reminder, Release 39 starts on February 23 and runs through March 29.

    Please let us know if you have any questions on this update!

    Thanks,
    Darkstarr

    @DarkStarr,

    in offline modus there are "unknown items" in inventory which can't be deleted or sold.
    Can't say, what it was before ...
    After saving in R39 they are still there.
