  6. 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.

    Destinies close to release

    While I haven’t posted a lot lately, and am behind in a few posts, Aethro Destinies is actually pretty close to being released. Currently, I am writing this on my iPad so I don’t have any screenshots to share other than what was posted on facebook, this game will be available on all operating systems including chrome. The full release notes and pages will be done this week, along with screenshots and opportunities to join the Aethro staff. So until later this week, have fun and enjoy!
  8. So.. it has been a minute since I've made a post. Those that have kids know that life kinda goes a different direction when you have a newborn lol. But, since I seemingly got my time management skills back (or at least as much as our son will let me), I've decided to put forth a lot of effort into getting things back on track here at Aethro. So lets get started with some things that were done today or in the past few days and I just have waited till now to make a massive post hehe - Dev Trackers have been updated! The dev trackers have been given a permanent home on the website. You can find them all at https://www.aethro.net/dev-trackers/ and lists every one of them that is currently operational and supported by me. They have also all been given a touch up and gloss over to make sure they are reporting all the proper details, not like ESO was doing and missing out on things, and are now working with our discord systems. Which brings me up to paragraph two - Aethro now has a discord server! It's not like it's like the biggest news of the century, but I created a discord server as since we are planning to have games, and having all the trackers in a nice chat area is also a plus. The trackers are still very much in testing on the discord server, but are setup to run even faster than the twitter and facebook pushed information. So if you join now, you'll see tests done allover the place, but that should slowly be replaced by actual developer posts. The Dev Tracker chat rooms are NOT for chatting at all, for obvious reasons, so you could always join the server mute everything else and keep that one you want to follow on notice so you get the details as soon as possible. If you wish to join, you're more than welcome to by hitting the link - https://discord.gg/xp33yT5 Destinies is coming to completion! Shockingly enough, Aethro Destinies is getting close to being launched! I hope to have purchased a new server for it in a week or two and at that point, start having beta tests to give it a try. New screenshots and details will be coming soon as in most likely next week, so keep an eye out if you're interested in not only trying out a 2.5D free to play game, but also working with me as a staff member as currently... I have no staff lol. Shards of Time still under development. I haven't stopped writing or working on SoT as making a single player game is something I've wanted to do for awhile. From what I'm thinking, it will be released in pieces. Some will call it a "not finished game" but I have no intention of it ever being done so that thought process doesn't work lol. It will be a game with updates to the story. New chapters will be given out freely, new quests, new towns until I think the story has progressed enough to go into the second episode. Aethro itself (the full story which I'm writing most of it out but the details are there), is approximately 3 episodes long with enough story in each episode to be quite adequate enough to hold down a single player game. So I'm happily looking forward to people trying it out and telling me their thoughts as I don't mind listening to criticism and changing as needed! Website has changed a little as well. The website needed some TLC lately as well and has been updated software wise, payment processor wise, forums (they now exist heh) and so on. By no means is it completed as I'm more focused in working on the games, but the basics are there. In the next week the staff application system will be fully ready to go so I can hopefully start getting people to help design or at least help run this community. If you read this entire post, thank you! I know there is a lot of information and I tried to be as short as possible to get the basics out there. I will be starting up the weekly data dump like I was doing before my son was born once again so get ready for details on games, the site, dev trackers and more on a regular basis! Till next time folks - keep enjoying life and game on!

    Destinies being worked on

    While I am busy with becoming a new dad, I've taken some time to also work on another passion of mine which is creating an MORPG. I have designed games, both online and not, before but this time I'm starting pretty much from scratch on Destinies. Will this game be out soon? Possibly for alpha testing to make sure as I go along I'm not screwing up quests and making sure my wording is accurate (which when tired, it can easily be wrong lol). At the very least the main town of Kalismor must be completed in my mind, along with at least a few dungeons, before the game is ready to go. Since my time becoming a dad has become more predictable there will be more updates on this and Shards of Time. I know it's been awhile since anything was posted but that's because, having a kid? Kinda changes your priorities like it or not lol. More information about this new MORPG (Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) will be released soon. Enjoy the month folks!
  13. So I have created the shards of time landing page, with some images on it. More details are being released soon, but figured I should get a dedicated area for it going while I think about it.
