PATCH 10.02.2017

  • Added ability to directly connect to a server by entering its IP and port. This may be done from a new button on the bottom-left of the ingame server browser.

This is intended to circumvent the issue with connecting to LAN servers.

Changelog:
  • Performed optimizations to help reduce server lag.
  • Fixed certain cases where altars would disappear after a server restart. If you still encounter this issue, please let us know!
  • Fixed connecting to dedicated servers when a LAN server is running on the network.
  • The ghostly warrior to the southwest of the Exiled Lands has passed on to the next realm.

PATCH 09.02.2017

  • Servers should no longer crash when joining/leaving guilds with thralls

PS: We are still working on the Disappearing Altars issues.

  • The crafting bug involving duped phantom items should now be fixed (Praise Crom!)
  • Thralls will no longer attack unconscious NPCs

PATCH 07.02.2017

  • – Fixed potential server crash with chat system.

PATCH 06.02.2017

Changelog:

  • Fix for placeables disappearing on server restart

PATCH 05.02.2017
Changelog:

  • Network usage optimizations
  • Server Performance optimizations
  • Server memory usage optimizations
  • Upgraded from sqlite 3.9.2 to 3.16.2
  • Players with high strength should now be able to knock out NPCs with the truncheon instead of killing them.
  • The Cutlass and Falcata should not be able to damage T1 buildings anymore.
  • Players should now be able to join password protected games from Steam Server List.
  • Fixed steam://connect/ip handling – Steam connect works now so that sites such as www.topconanservers.com should work properly now.
  • Fixed an issue in the Land Claim system that could allow players to build too close to other players. This may result in some lost building pieces if they overlap into land that had already been claimed by another player.
  • We have had some issues with the game state getting corrupt on servers in certain cases. We have made the interactions with the game database more robust, and added regular checks for its integrity during runtime. We have also fixed some cases where this would happen, but are still investigating if there are other potential occurrences.As counter measures to the system, and since already corrupted databases will not be automatically recoverable we have implemented a recovery system:On server startup, if the game encounters a corrupted Database it will attempt to recover to the last database backup that is not corrupted. This will make the status of the game be reverted to a previous working world state, which may result in loss of progression. To help with this, the game will now creating database backups much more often.

    These are temporary measures while we keep working to eliminate the database corruption altogether.
