The new alpha server is online, as it stands it's in a non-playable state but as stated before this is something that I will be working on in my free time. I wanted this to be a long term project, so it will take around 6+ months for it to be even moderately playable. When it is in a playable state it will be moved to beta, and then will be moved to it's own domain separate from Rune Legacy.
I have also kept the original Rune Legacy server online as good will for anyone that isn't interested in this project and wants to stick with the original RL source.
Updates will come extremely slowly, sometimes it might even be 1-2 things for the month. But as the server starts reaching a more complete state, and as I start developing tools, updates would start coming in more quickly (but that won't be for months).
I'm really happy to be working on this project, it's extremely empty with almost nothing to do. But I get to write something from the ground up, learn a ton about RuneScape's protocols, while also making something that will eventually be something fun to play.
This morning I've added binary player saving, I'll be rewriting that soon using object relational mapping (ORM) so in the future stats and progress will be linked to the website.
Edit: Woops forgot the dl link: https://rune-legacy.com/downloads/Rune Legacy Alpha Game Build 0.01.jar
So just a recap on the last announcement, I will be writing my own server from complete scratch. The server at the moment is very empty, it has no skills except for maybe 4 which are not completed yet, there is no combat, no player saving, and the client is from the year 2006.
I believe this is the best route, as I can truly design and architect how I want the server to be from the ground up. In a year, with the right tools I can see this being incredibly powerful, and being able to push updates consistently. For now, I'll be taking things slowly. Updating the game slowly whenever I have free time.
The source will be made publicly available as a pre-alpha on January 20th.
Server was offline due to an issue with MySQL, you can find more here.
This affected all of my websites and the issue has been resolved on my end, Rune Legacy server is back online now.
