These are two small releases but very important in the development of Arianne.On Marauroa we have fix a bug that has been there since 0.30 release and that was related to the way MySQL managed transactions, also we added a method to request synchronization from a unsynced client so you should expect now a better gameplay. On Stendhal we have added A*, fixed a bug with Sheep weight due to signed/unsigned, improved Sheep movement, added Patrol and follow path action, fixed collision detection area, changed Game Chat dialog so that it opens with Ctrl+L, NPC counts sheeps sold and bought, client reconnect on out of sync, a single text line is visible now, now combat icon is centered on the bottom right corner and finally optional collision detection boxes. Out next steps are:
- Add wolf entity
- Make combat real
- Add currency to game
- Add new Sheep GFX
- Initial character customization Finally the tasks written on the previous news item are still open and needing attention.
