Veteran's Blood Tournament


With an impressive display of interest for the tournament, the first round has been kicked off with match pairings for the two continental divisions being posted on the tournament forum. The deadline for finishing up this first round is 27th July (two full weeks). Best of luck to all participants - may the fiercest viking keep his head!

RUNE Classic released on Steam


"The classic Viking third-person hack-and-slash melee action game is now available on Steam. This release, known as Rune Classic, contains the original Rune content, plus the multiplayer expansion pack Halls of Valhalla. Experience an exciting single player storyline where you thwart Loki and his minions from bringing Ragnarok to Midgard that will keep you entertained for hours. Eat meat and lizards, drink mead, as survival food. Call upon the power of the gods to enchant your weapon with Rune powers.

* New enemies added.
* Some levels have been redesigned for more enjoyable play.
* Experience multiplayer in vicious, fun "up close and personal" melee action with swords, maces, hammers and axes (or your opponent's head or arm).
* Includes Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Arena and Headball.
* Over 35 multiplayer and singleplayer levels.
* All the music tracks from the game and the original audio CD will be available as part of this release in OGG format."

RUNE Classic on Steam!

Also as announced earlier this week by Laurie "the DeepMinded" Wise, RuneGame.com Goddess/Administrator, Human Head is requesting server hosts to contact them for prep information regarding MP. Server hosters should contact them at runeclassicsupport@ninerealms.net. The new Steam 1.10 version includes a "compatability mode" to allow Rune 1.07 players to join 1.01 servers, which means the game basically needs to be restarted to allow the new executables to reload original packages.

Development

Inspired by the Steam-powered release of Rune Classic, I am well underway with a rewrite of the codebase making up the RUNE HORDES dot INFO site - for deployment soon™ (I do not have a deadline as such set for myself, but I'm aiming at no longer than a month from now).

Changes include, but are not limited to:
  • The ability to set a horde's nationality is being replaced with the horde's region (International, European, American).
  • The ability to recognize a horde's stance with regards to rune-usage and honorable fighting is added to the horde page.
  • More information about a horde's game server can be added (typical game type, map rotation, mods and mutators used).
  • An active horde is no longer omitted from the horde listing if they have no members marked as active.
Maintenance

Alongside this deployment, history from three years ago will repeat itself with another horde maintenance, where all hordes marked as being active will be inactivated. It is my hope that the truly active hordes in the game will reactivate their horde entry or add their horde to the listing if they are not yet part of the RHI project, to allow for a more accurate representation of the hordes one may stumble into on the servers!

Announcements will go out to the main site and this support forum, the in-game news provided by RHI, the game's official forum and likely also the game's official Facebook page in an attempt to reach as many hordes as efficiently as possible when the maintenance has been done.

Rune:HoV in-game news updates / Get RHI powered in-game news with v1.10
« Last post by Søren Bjerg on June 21, 2012, 04:26:26 PM »
At the moment Human Head Studios is not providing any in-game news, which is why you get a "server not responding" message if you wait long enough on the News server selection tab. By changing two lines in your Rune.ini file (located in C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Rune Classic\System\ by default), you can make the game show the news page provided to v1.08 clients (thanks to Lär for his elaboration on the official forum on how the game looks for news to display).

Find the following section:

Code: [Select]
[UBrowser.UBrowserUpdateServerLink]
UpdateServerAddress=www.rune-world.com

And change it to:

Code: [Select]
[RBrowser.RBrowserUpdateServerLink]
UpdateServerAddress=www.runehordes.info

When Human Head Studios start providing in-game news you can just revert the change to start receiving official news instead of the news provided through RUNE HORDES dot INFO - although I'll most likely setup redirection to the official news (for the benefit of v1.08 clients as well).

While the subject only mention v1.10, I assume the same change will work for all versions of the game. Feel free to correct me or confirm my assumption, as I do not currently have access to a v1.02 or v1.07 installation (where the UpdateServerAddress variable should be set as www.runegame.com instead of www.rune-world.com).

RUNE HORDES dot INFO Dev. and Support / Forum software upgrade
« Last post by Søren Bjerg on June 17, 2012, 04:58:17 PM »
I finally got around to upgrade the forum software to the latest version. Unfortunately this means the color scheme is going to be very bright and not very RUNE-like for the time being. Other "end user" changes include custom profile fields having become an integrated feature of the software, which means the contents of the previously available custom profile fields (versions of the game played and favorite weapons) have been wiped and they need to be reselected in the profile administration should one desire to display that kind of information about themselves. I may add a few more such as the old horde affiliation and new ones like favorite rune power, game type and/or map - although the grand scale purpose of this forum was never as much general game discussion as site related support...

Since the upgrade did initially cause the main site to not work, I would greatly appreciate to be informed about any broken functionality not already covered in the known bugs and issues topic, so I can work to fix it.

The missing 1.10 box in "add new horde" has been added, and a horde's changelog now detects changes in what versions of the game a horde is playing.

Oops! I'll take care of that missing 1.10 box, thanks.

Sorry for the double post, can't find the edit button. :P

It only works when editing an existing horde. When you sign up a new horde there is no box for 1.10 to check.

EDIT: Now I see the modify button, but for some reason it won't appear at my previous post.
