Once MMORPG / News: Recent posts

CVS closed, use Subversion repository instead

Hi there,

I imported yesterday and today the interesting parts of CVS repository into the SVN one; and I just disabled the CVS one to not have to maintain two repositories. So please use the SVN repository from now on, the other will be hidden but apparently it will continue working for people that had it before.

I also left behind some old content, and redistributed the files a bit, in example putting data for both client and server in data/, and so on. The autotools method was substituted, please see file INSTALL for more info.... read more

Spring cleaning

I've been doing a bit of cleanup in this project, removing people not active in the last months/years, disabling old binaries (people can't play with them anyway), and so on. If somebody has some comment about it, please tell us.

The website and the rest of stuff is still under construction, probably it would need a few weeks/months to get everything working again.

First release of binary clients in SF (0.0.1)

The Once team is proud to announce the first (demo) release, 0.0.1. Hopefully this release will help to attract more artists and programmers to our project. Since this is the very first release, please don't expect it to be playable at all.

What we've got:

* A working client and server which supports creation of a new account and characters.

* The client currently displays our world and character models (some borrowed) as they are evolving. This allows all current artists to finally see their work in action as they produce and refine it. We expect to see dramatic changes to the world as the artists add new content and improve models.... read more

Quest for designers.

The once MMORPG project are looking for more designers to help with the game design. Ideally we'd like to have around 10 designers in total. There are still heaps of aspects of the game which we have only just glossed over, and which need heaps more thought put into them. If you're interested, give us an email, and we'll sort something out!
