As most of you know the server has been moved to Pete's office temporarily while he is moving. For some reason, it's not liking his new router there. So until he gets moved and the server is at his new home, we are probably going to be suffering from unexpected outages. Sometimes I can log on and reset it and it's fine for a day or two, sometimes it locks me out as well. At which point, I have to get ahold of Pete and have him reset it, which is sometimes difficult since he's in the middle of moving. Unfortunately I don't have a time when he expects to be done, but I'm hoping, like the rest of you, that its very soon. I'll let you know when everything is back to normal. Check the forums for further news.
We all eagerly await the completion of the new version of ConnectUO. Jeff has worked many long hours on it and is in the midst of testing. Akara is getting ready for these new changes as well. As soon as the new version is finalized and released, we will be repatching. These new patches will contain new maps and more ML updates. We appreciate all the hard work Jeff has done to restore ConnectUO to operation.
Several new areas have been spawned including Fan Dancer's Dojo in Tokuno. Beware, this dungeon is not for the faint of heart. It was spawned to challenge Elite players, so take care when you wander in looking for enticing artifacts.
Some of you may have noticed some changes going on with player titles. Don't worry, your not losing your title, we simply completed scripting for all the new titles and have made changes so that they are updated automatically. All titles have been restored, and there are even some new ones that haven't been seen yet. So get out there and see if you can be the first to reach "the next level".
