Game Updater V0.6

We've put a fresh full installer online in the last few minutes which will contain the very latest version of the game and the new version automatic update tool. Players which already have the game and are able to play without issue do not need this download! This is for the users which have experienced difficulties in staying up to date since V0.5 of the updater.

Strangely, it would appear that following the troubleshooting guide would have resolved this issue for all of y...

Forum Preferences

A simple question really, would the community to prefer to see the forums setup with this kind of style/colour scheme?

I've been looking in to some of the settings on the server and we can re-enable selecting your own theme from a preset list we provide. You're able to do so now, you may also suggest any themes you find online which are 100% compatible with SMF V2.0.9 for us to include with the selection too. The main focus for the time being is just to determine which ...

Update & Password Reset Schedule

Hey guys, as promised here's some more accurate information for the update process of moving to V0.5.0 Gold.

We will be taking the Game Server Offline on the 20th March at 09:00 GST (13:00 on the forums if you haven't altered date settings). This maintenance period will last for up to 12 hours and so no game services will be available during this time, the forums/wiki/website will be working as usual.

I first posted that we'd be taking the servers down on the 1...

Important: Game Rules

It took me a little longer than the 24 hours I said it would to make my decision regarding the language rules but the decision is made.

Similarly to the trial period we held in February with the censor we're going to be holding one with the English Only requirements for PMs/Party tab. This means that for the rest of the month of March you can communicate freely without any stress of repercussions. The English only rule is still in place for all of the public channels. ie local, b...

Dev Diary: Nuzlocke and PDoD

I've been getting quite a few questions about how we're going to lay this challenge out and how it's going to differ from the one some of you may already enjoy on the handhelds. I've put together some rough notes :P

The core rules are very simple:

Dev Diary: Performance - Feedback Required

I've been working on some performance issues with the game client over the last couple of days, it's not quite polished yet but it's working way better than expected. With this and the new way in which we format maps in memory the game will see a 50-100% performance increase across all platforms. Those who already have reasonable computers and don't experience any slowdowns will reduce CPU usage by about 50-60% which can have a fair impact on battery life for those which play wi...
