Mini Update for Christmas! by Jinker on 24 Dec 2008 : 01:09
Since we might be waiting a little longer for the next major update, I decided to go ahead and update the map file, a few sounds have changed and leather armor has a different look. Tracking dots colors changed as well.





**UPDATE** No longer needed. Click here.



To get the update click here for OSX or here for OS 9 and read the instructions on how to update your client.



Thanks, have fun smile
Oberin Server back up by Stefan on 10 Oct 2008 : 22:38
Hi people,



Jinker received the new server today and we are currently installing everything. It should be up very shortly.



We really want to give a big big big Thank You to everyone who helped us when the old server went down... You guys rock!



Long Live Oberin!



Edit: The server is now up and running. Enjoy!
Oberin Server Status Update by Stefan on 02 Oct 2008 : 15:02
Bad news people. Yesterday, the computer hosting the server drew its last breath, and now refuses to boot up. As neither Jinker or myself have a powerful enough spare mac to replace it for the time being, the Oberin Server will be offline for an undetermined amount of time.



We've always been refusing donations, and for many reasons, but this time we have to face it: We can't make it without your help. In order to raise enough money to buy an used mac and host the server again, we are very soon going to accept donations from the community. Also, as a big thanks in advance to you all, a long awaited online store is going to open. Oberin goodies ahoy!



Expect another update later on today with a bit more details. We really hope to take the Oberin Server back up as soon as we can.



Thanks for reading.



Edit: More details here.



Edit2: We managed to salvage the data from the old server, and nothing was lost. When the server is back online, all your characters, guild halls, etc. will be restored to their original state.

The donations are steadily going and we reached about 30% of our target. Thanks to everyone who helped us so far!
Oberin Graphism Contest results! by Stefan on 04 Sep 2008 : 00:10
It wasn't an easy task, but the three winners of the Graphism Contest have been voted!



First and foremost, I really wish to reiterate my thanks to everyone who participated. We have all been astonished by the huge number of entries, and while it made voting much more difficult than we expected, it also gave us great ideas for future contests. You guys rock!



Without further waiting, the winners are...



- Alys for her most pretty Nevia Flower!







Lots of flowers were really amazing but yours definitely stood out. Well done!





- Kwesyther for his awesome Crystal Ring!







Your ring received a large majority of votes, big congrats!





- Yorck for his impressive Tarnished Necklace!







This is exactly how we thought that necklace should look like. Bravo!





- Last but not least, we would like to give an honorable mention to REDMAN, whose runes sprites are going to be used, with his permission, to accompany a spell FX. I hope that's ok with you, those really look nice!





The creators of these sprites are asked to contact Jinker ASAP, so that we can add them in game.



This was definitely not an easy vote, there were so many great entries! Our expectations were blown to the roof. I'm really looking forward to the next contest now!



Thanks again!
