Drakan: 10th Anniversary - Quick info

Postby Shelim » Fri Sep 21, 2012 1:09 pm

Drakan: 10th Anniversary has been released!

What?
Drakan: 10th Anniversary is a mod for Drakan: The Order of the Flame fixing the majority of known bugs and adding new graphic effects based on an additional DirectX 9 rendering engine. This allows for previously unavailable effects such as normal mapping, depth of field, motion blur, post processing effects, etc.

Where?
You can grab it here, or on our ModDB page (as soon as ModDB admin's authorize download)
Do not follow where the path may lead - go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side! I laugh in the face of danger! Ha! Ha! Ha!

How will this mod affect multiplayer.

Will it affect running a game server, and players compatability to join? 8)

As for multiplayer:

1.) I've fixed infamous "Session creation failed: check your network settings and try again"

(as for technical details, there was null string passed for inet_addr under some not fully understood circumstances, I've fixed it to use INADDR_ANY - this mean Drakan's server will listen on first available network adapter, you'll have to reorder them in your network setting or use ForceBindIP if you want to force server use Hamachi and not standard LAN port)

2.) Game between standard Drakan 445 and 10th Anniversary is not supported, as Drakan verifies checksum after connection. I might address that problem in the future, but definitely not in first release ;)

3.) I've done very small amount of testing (and only in LAN environment), so it's likely that there will be some problems I've missed - but I'll definitely address them as soon as I get confirmed reports ;)

This is well known in-game problem that is fixed in Drakan: 10th Anniversary, but not in any earlier patches (including 445++) - it will be available for download tomorrow ;)
