After almost 2 months of PvP opening I would like to say thanks for all of you, who did the testing and reported bugs and improvements.
That was the goal of x100 C1 server. 95% of reported bugs (server crashes, content bugs, client ones) were fixed. Now I'm focusing on low-rate C1.

I will post short progress about the last but not least L2Server component here (all other parts like NPC/DB/Authorization are completed, and were tested in PvP server):

Infrastructure: 80% done
Multiplayer: 75% done
Stats formulas: 80% done
World basic interactions: 15% done
Items related: 45% done
Skill related: 10% done
NPC interaction: 5% done
Multiplayer interaction: 0% done

Original C1 bugs fixed: 6

As you see, server is about 30% ready, and I hope I will be able to develop it up to 50% or 60% till the September. I will post progress in this topic.

So, no, we don't abandon the project. We just moved to intermediate phase - when x100 testing is almost completed, but low-rate is still needs hundreds or hours of work.

First closed alpha release is published

1. builder's level up/down via setparam (lvl, exp)
2. summon item
3. teleport to location
4. hide off/on
5. healthy
6. item drop, equp, destroing (no grade penalty yet, no enchants, no craft)
7. some passive skills
8. self-cast skill mechanic (p_attack_range skill was decompiled for range)
9. target-casting buff (ww was decompiled for speed)
10. sets
11. demon set fix
12. movement (no pathfinding yet)
13. item pick up

Doesn't look impressive, but there is 300+ features hidden under those "basics"

Multiplayer works as well (players can see each other, can see item drop from each other, etc), but no player-player interaction (like attack, trading, party)

90% of passive skills and self/target buffs will be reconstructed in next 2 weeks

Hello there.

So, what have been done since latest release:

1. Fast NPC loading - NPCs are loaded to server in 5-10 seconds instead of 2-3 minutes. This custom improvement means that users will be able to play right after server's restart
2. NPC communication (talks, menu selections, quest choices, giving/removing quest items and rewards, teleports) is completed
3. Physical attack mechanics (crits, hits, shield blocks, misses, damage calculation with spread, duals/fists attack) is 95% completed, only polearms are not completed, since they hit on area instead of single target

Next week I'm going on vacation, so will report with progress around 10.10.2019.

Main focus is PvE (attacks, deads, drops, loosing/getting exp).
