Thanks for reporting on that, Ayame. I logged in tonight to see if there was any mention on this side.

I assume dia's fix is to be applied server-side, so should players now update via POL to the latest release and not apply any additional "fixes"?

NPCs are all fixed up now...that should take care of a lot of issues...but I fixed them by hand so if I made an error somewhere (likely) please let me know!

If anyone is wondering why NPCs, packets and everything got changed. Its because SE was refactoring everything for the new expansion. You can read more about it here: http://gamerescape.com/2013/01/03/final ... -magazine/ page 60

Good job on getting the packets figured out guys. I see a lot of new people joining our ranks again now.
I'm going to take down my dropbox files as they are no longer needed. :)

Forgive me as I'm not the most tech savvy guy out there, but this thread indicates there is a fix out now for the current build?

Could anyone break down the quick and dirty of what to do to fix the new client so I can get some new friends on? :)
