News / So what's going on?
« on: December 02, 2018, 12:34:04 am »
Hey everyone,

We've been very heads down lately focused on getting patch 44 ready to go. It's probably our biggest patch ever and we're very excited to release it. I won't go into much more detail just yet, but we will have extensive patch notes when it's released and will begin keeping the news steadily updated with in-progress patch notes for what we're working on next.

I've let the communication slide a bit lately as well while we've been focusing on development. There have been several sever crashes, particularly the one yesterday that left the server down for hours while we were asleep. I know this left a lot of people confused and frustrated, especially without much official communication from the team. I'm sorry for that and we'll be aiming to do better with news posts about any server events, downtime, and upcoming patches as I mentioned before.

Bear with us for just a little while longer and I'm confident the wait will be worth it. After patch 44 the server should finally be in a polished state where we are prepared to begin advertising again, re-opening parts of the shop, running regular events (including automated events), and rebuilding the community.

I'm really excited to show you what we've been working on  :)

News / New Client Downloads + Installer
« on: October 28, 2018, 09:18:37 pm »
Had trouble downloading the game? Installer not working for you? Want additional options? You're in luck!

We've added several additional download options included direct downloads from our server in France as well as a version of the installer split into 16 500mb parts to support those with unstable internet connections.

We've also rebuilt the installer so it will run 32-bit versions of Windows based on feedback from a handful of players who are still on a 32-bit Windows.

The new client is fully updated to the latest patch as of this post - v43.

Polls / Automated events
« on: October 11, 2018, 01:48:22 pm »
We're planning to release an automated event system soon thanks to some new game integrations we've been able to build and I'd like to know what sort of events you want most.

Most likely, events like PvP events would run several times per day at different preset times to accommodate those in different timezones. There would be prizes awarded automatically based on results  and a ranking system to track your event performance, PvP performance, and general character info.

Feel free to add suggestions to this post.

News / Patch v41 - Elysium port back fixed
« on: September 08, 2018, 12:31:59 pm »
You can now port back from Elysium without having to restart your client. Enjoy!

News / Patch v39 - Elysium Open
« on: September 06, 2018, 07:08:57 pm »
Another day and another patch already. This time, we're opening up Elysium! Update your clients to v36 and enjoy access to Elysium once again. Currently porting back from Elysium will cause your client to hang and then crash - we're working on this but if you log in after that everything is fine.

Note: If you were previously "stuck" in Elysium because your character was in Elysium when we took the server down for the Hydran update, you may have to log in twice to get your character working properly again.

News / Patching problems? Super slow verify?
« on: September 06, 2018, 07:07:34 pm »
We've identified two issues some of you have been having with the new patcher.

First, make sure your Monkey Dynasty - Regenesis folder is not read only. Right click it -> properties -> uncheck read only and apply to that folder and all sub- files and folders. Read only files and folders prevent the patcher from making the changes it is trying to make and will result in you missing out on the updates and seeing the same patches applied every time you start the launcher.

Second, if your patching / file verify is extremely slow, try disabling Windows Defender Real Time Protection. You can find this in the Windows Defender settings. During testing we've seen Windows Defender Real Time Protection slow the patching process as much as 200x.

If either of these issues helped you, let us know in the comments!

News / More Download Options
« on: September 03, 2018, 07:50:31 pm »
We've added more download options to the downloads page. If you've been having trouble getting the client, there is now a torrent as well as a Mega mirror for the installer. Mega has a sync client as well that should handle resuming and perform better with unreliable internet connections.

Have another preferred method? Let me know in the comments.

News / 2020: The Patch is Upon Us
« on: August 31, 2018, 08:20:51 pm »
So it's been a running joke that we're not going to get this patch out until 2020. But guess what, it's 2020 right now - patch time!

Download New Client
The update requires a brand new client and the fastest way to get it by far is to download the installer from the connect page. We will release a standalone patcher soon and have the current patcher update your existing clients, but due to the incremental patching approach our new patcher uses, updating an old client from scratch will take forever.

If you've been helping us test on the test server, the test server patcher will patch your test client to the live client (v32), so you're already ready to go.

State of the Patch
This patch has been an enormous effort but there are still a handful of things that need to be completed. Miscellaneous translations, changes to the game interfaces, re-adding some more customs, etc. If you notice any bugs, please report them immediately to avoid any rollbacks.

Elysium will be launched tomorrow, for now it will remain shut down.

Patch Notes
Stuff changed. A lot of stuff. Too much stuff to list right now.

Main stuff, Psychea and Kytos can ascend now. Lumen is now available-ish. Hydran now exists and can ascend. Clash of the Seven exists, might work? BFS might work, other stuff might work. Some stuff, might not work. Slack remains the best place to report issues.

This post will be updated with a more detailed list of changes as we write it up. At the moment, it's 5 AM and we haven't slept. So, working towards that now.

There will likely be many small patches in the near future to finish customizing the client and fix any remaining bugs or translations.

When reporting an issue, please remember to include the name of the npc, mob, quest, or whatever is involved with it. The more information the better.  Pretend you are describing any issues you find to someone who has never played the game before. That'll make it much easier for us to understand, find and repair the issue.

Bans and tickets
If you have an open ticket then it's likely going to be reviewed after the weekend. For now, download the new client and wait for our response. If you're banned, that sucks, don't violate rules and you won't get banned.

Custom Items
Some custom items have had their ID numbers changed. These fashions and skyblades have been mailed to you.  You might find you have a charm equipped as a fashion or something like that, just remove it. The ID numbers that we used to use for some items are now in use for some other items.

Skyblades might have lost their attributes, you'll have to rebuild them. This was the best solution we had for this time and I think most of you will agree that it's a small price to pay compared to other servers.

News / More Server Hardware Fixes
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:20:06 pm »
The server was taken down today for an extensive hardware analysis. We discovered an additional issue with the power supply and replaced it. Combined with the recent cooling fix, we should have a very stable server going forward (no more random crashes). This is an important foundation for the upcoming patch.

Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned  :)

News / Regional Connectivity Issues
« on: August 31, 2017, 04:15:56 pm »
Hi Guys,

As some of you are aware, there have been ongoing connectivity issues affecting certain regions preventing a good chunk of users from connecting to the server.  These are not related to the server specifically but rather a result of underlying routing issues with portions of the internet between users and our server. Hopefully it should be resolved soon. In the meantime, feel free to join us on slack to help test and preview the upcoming updated Hydran server in #testing on slack.

News / 4 Years of Monkey Dynasty
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:05:24 pm »
It's hard to believe it's been 4 years since we started this project. We've come a long way since then, seen hundreds of thousands of players, a tight knit group of dedicated staff, and an ever evolving community of JD fans. I'd like to thank the players and the staff who've made all of this possible. We couldn't have done it without you all! Here's to another year of fun with all you monkeys.

I'd also like to say that our new prioritizations have been going well and we are finally getting more time for higher priority work. We're excited to see some results from this in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!

And as always, Kaz still has some fun events in store for you. We'll see you all in game!

News / End of Appeals, Staff Respect, Shifting Priorities
« on: January 31, 2017, 01:58:19 am »
Hey everyone, I've got several big announcements.

First of all, happy Year of the Rooster! I hope you all enjoyed the events hosted this weekend (thanks Kaz!) and rest assured there is some more in store for you. The main point of this post, though, is to update you on some changes we're making in how things are handled. This is all in an effort to shift the time we're spending from administrative work to  more development, events, and more.

Ban Appeals
Beginning in February we will no longer be processing ban appeals or amnesty. It is simply too time consuming and far too large of a distraction and there has been ample time for those who were in need.

Ceasing appeals is in line with a general shift we will be making in priorities to put overall server development and community engagement above time consuming processes that do not help the server as a whole. Too much valuable staff time has been consumed dealing with a lot of administrative work that, moderation, and rule enforcement and defense.

The staff
Rely on your staff. As I'm sure you all have seen, the staff behind a server are the reason for successes, and failures. They can be the glue that holds it together or the corruption that tears it apart. We wouldn't have made it as far as we have without an excellent and reliable staff.

With that in mind, let me remind you that they are trustworthy and have the server's best interests at heart. They are in charge. They do not have to justify themselves to you. Review the rules and be respectful of the staff and your fellow players. There has been far too much harassment, rule breaking, and general trolling lately and it is wasting everyone's time. We will be dealing with harassment and rule violation quickly and without argument. If you are in a gray area or are unsure, you should assume you will be punished. Read the rules and be aware. But really, just some general common sense should be all you need.

We will also be review and clarifying rules where necessary and updating other policies and procedures to reflect this new initiative. Stay tuned.

Thanks for reading, and here's to a great new year!

To assist those who have trouble downloading particular files (e.g. models.pck), I've added a new download tool on the download page that will let you download any particular files you are having trouble with as well as listing popular ones. Check it out at:

News / Banana Shop Faction Changes Fixed
« on: December 30, 2016, 10:14:23 pm »
Hope everyone's holidays have been great so far and you've been enjoying all of the evens! The issue with selecting ascended faction for faction changes in the bananas shop has been fixed. Thanks for your patience while we resolved this.

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and the remaining events!
