Mortal Online new build

This next patch is going to update Mortal Online to a new build of both the Unreal Engine and the network solution. This will allow us to finally solve our current critical issues we could not solve within the old build. This is an important step which had placed most of our planned feature development on hold while this build was prepared.

We have been running a separate test server in parallel to the live server in order to be able to properly test this new build before going live with it. Unfortunately, we have not been able to do this before. Thanks to a very dedicated testing team, we have ironed out the most critical bugs in the new build. We’d like to extend our thanks to the test team who helped us with this.

Patch Notes - Version 1.3.0.0 – Release
2010-10-12


Notice: We can't stress this enough. When the launcher is running the patch installer, let it run its course. It will take some time to apply the patch and it might seem like the installer is doing nothing, but it is working. If you reboot or kill the patcher process you run the risk of corrupting you installation, forcing you to do a full reinstall.


Notice of DirectX update:
Make sure you are running the latest version DirectX to avoid issues.

Seems they decided for speedtree which makes me anxious to return to the jungle.

Was hoping for more in the pets section but I guess it will come in the future.

Combat seems to have a lot of changes in the stamina system I will only comment after testing but looks good (on paper) the nerf to shortbows was also needed (even though I am an archer).

still there is lot more to do:

- flash interface done for everything
- keep and houses vault system overhaul
- important bug fixes (mounted charge, stamina regeneration bug with bow etc)

but we knew the epic patch was just the beginning. hopefully next patch we will see those things ;)
