What is Arianne?

Arianne is a virtual world. It is a massively multiplayer role playing game you access through an Internet connection.

Arianne is also a Massively Multiplayer Engine, that you can use to build you own online games. Soon we will tell you more about this.

This version of Arianne is released as a Tech Preview, it still has no working client, but we really need that you download it and try to compile and run it.

These are the changes from Tech Preview 1:

  • Added Last Login information
  • Added MacOS X support
  • Corrected a ton of bugs, mainly:
    • Incorrect clients management
    • Actions wasn't correctly managed on RP
    • Secure Login works perfectly now
    • Better error diagnose
  • Added Server Command Line help
  • Added option to disable Server Prompt
  • tar.gz file is now Linux compatible line ended.
  • Tons of smaller updates

Thank you to those of you that downloaded Tech Preview 1 and have been reporting problems widely.
