I've messaged Link about this. He asked me to post it here.
Characters with blank passwords are returning an incorrect password message when I try to log into them. It's also happening with the password "yo". The game accepts them at character creation, even at the confirm password popup but if you log off and back on, you're met with the incorrect password message. It doesn't appear to be a character count issue; a single space works as a password, as does "i". I tried a few other random combinations of 2 letters and they're all fine.
I downloaded Pale Moon to test the issue with the Java applet as I've used a blank password and/or "yo" on there for years. I ran into the same problem. It's happening on two accounts.
I haven't got a screenshot. The gandalf spell cast is no longer popping up for me to choose a monster. It just happened but I have to say it's been a consistent thing the past week or two, I figured I was just too powerful or something and the game didn't want me to keep smashing dragons. But it seems that Gandalf is losing his potency. He may need better glasses to read the scrolls.. maybe his cataracts are getting worse.
There are fewer players on these days. Few and far between. I keep the client up and periodically check it for someone online, at which point I'll join them. Maybe there could be some kind of notification when players are online? Email or Text would be cool.. Maybe a global player count being displayed on the website somewhere so we all know when other people are online? Some way of linking us together. OR I could just check manually as I have been and that's just fine. I like to make my life easier / more convenient when possible. =D
Pm me the account name and I will reset the passwords when I get on tonight after work.
PM me some of your old character names. They could be waiting on a remake of your old account and I will see if they still exist.
DarkEnigma had three different clones, Knights of Phantasia, Return of the Dark Lord, and Arcania. I bought darkenigma.net to contain their awesomeness, and they are located respectively at : http://kop.darkenigma.net, http://rotdl.darkenigma.net, and http://arcania.darkenigma.net
DarkEnigma (Stephen) may be dead, but his legacy lives on. For every Valar achieved in the clone realms. A P4 Angel gets his wings.
