The Mana World

The Mana World (TMW) is a serious effort to create an innovative free and open source MMORPG. It uses 2D graphics and aims to create a large and diverse interactive world. The game aims to be a unique place for people to interact not only by fighting each other but to play life, form a community within the community, or just simply chat. Although the game is never-ending and a linear story cannot be applied, it should have enough background to describe and predefine tribes, kingdoms, and the environment overall. Fullfilled quests should lead to certain events depending on them being solved. Quests should also encourage teamwork.

    Release Notes: This release adds the ability to change your own password. For the rest, this release is primarily a bugfix release, but a big one. Four crash bugs were fixed (on login, on shift-clicking an item, when using item links, and when opening a whisper tab). The player should no longer jump around when stopping to target a monster, the --home-dir option works again, the position of floating text was corrected, music will play again on login, and the client is less likely to get desynchronized with the server. The Spanish, Polish, Portugese, Swedish, French, and German translations were updated.

Support for NPC storage was added. You can now specify the initial attributes of a new character. A new tabbed chat window was added, which makes it much easier to keep track of private conversations. Finally, archers can see their arrows fly through the air.

          Release Notes: The biggest visible change in this release is the switch to using TrueType fonts instead of bitmap fonts.
