Chaos Storm #642 has swept the Lok'Groton island chain. Please post any changes you have observed and wish to share with others in the comments. If you don't want to read possible spoilers, please do not read any further!
Delta Tao's "What's New" for v642:
There was a time when a fool and his money were soon parted, but now it happens to everybody. — Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)
* The widely reviled “balance tax” has been waived in certain cases.
* The Hunting Preserve is, uh, reserved for hunting. In particular, management reserves the right to refuse to serve the vitally-challenged. It’s all part of the conservation service! Please observe all posted regulations.
* No crashes in 404 days and counting.
* You’ll have to explore to discover the rest of this Chaos Storm’s changes. Enjoy!
Note: As previously announced, we’ve stopped building the Mac “.ppc” client. If you had previously been using that client under OS 8.6 or 9, you may be able to use the Carbon (“.osx”) client. Despite its name, that one is supposed to be able to run under OS9 & CarbonLib — but no promises: we’re no longer able to test this assertion... which is exactly why we had to drop the PPC client.
Also note that if you log into the game using the v639 PPC client, it’ll attempt to auto-update itself to v642. But that attempt is doomed to fail, since there’s no v642 PPC client available for downloading. Instead you should download the Carbon client yourself. You’ll need to use something like Stuffit Expander to decompress it.
On the other hand, if you’re a daring thrillseeker, and you’re using Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you might want to try out this preview of coming attractions.Posted by Para at March 18, 2010 06:25 AM
