It's been awhile, and I last said that Destinies was close to launch. In reality, it's been running in the background on the server since then but I never had time to sit down and make a post about it.
So I'm making a post about it! You can now connect to the game, and give it a try with the manaplus client (which will be linked below), or wait until I create a full installer for the game. Which should be Friday as it's pretty much done, just requires a few changes to graphics.
How to use the downloadable manaplus client
Here is the step by (hopefully) simple step process to do this -
- Download the application from - http://download.evolonline.org/manaplus/download/manaplus-win32.exe
- Run the installer. You don't need anything special besides the base game.
- Run the ManaPlus client. It will flicker a little bit as it's figuring out your graphical settings.
- Click the ADD button at the bottom
- Name is Aethro Destinies (or whatever you want it's your local side), Address is: server1.aethro.net Server Type: Evol2
- Hit connect, and register a new account! Once done you will be all set and ready to give it a try.
As mentioned above, a set client will be coming this week to streamline this process, along with full documentation in a page on here soon.
