 It's a lot of time since my last post ... forgive me.

 

You may already know that ineage Episode 6 and U are coming in the US thanks to the guys at NCSoft Austin (oh well, they will move to Seattle soon). A redesigned web site and BBS are also in the work and the registered players are able to test the new contents on the PTS (Public Test Server).

This new expansion reach the western Lineage players almost two years after the original korean launch ... better late than never. But there are some very good and unexpected news for the small group of Mac users that still play this ancient MMORPG:  a new version (I mean, an improved version) of the Mac client has been developed!

Probably, most of the Mac users have already switched to Boot Camp in the past months ... the Mac Client section of the official forum is almost dead. So, have a look at this:

 

Mac changes on PTS

On October 1st, 1pm CDT / 2pm EDT / 6pm GMT we will be taking the Lineage servers down for our regularly scheduled maintenance. At this time, we will be applying an update to our Public Test Server containing several Mac client fixes.

October 1st, PTS Patch Notes

Mac Client Fixes

Links are now aligned with text.

Briefly disconnecting from the game will no longer cause a crash when you reconnect.

The calculator now functions.

Links will highlight when they are moused over.

There is sound when you equip or unequip items.

Using triple arrow with Sayha's crossbow when you only have 2 arrows left will no longer cause the game to crash.

An environmental sound slider has been added to the Game Options menu.

The command /ver will now function.

Mac users will no longer move slower than PC users.

Lag fixes have been made to several areas including Fire Valley and Lair of Valakas.
