News / Re: So what's going on?
« on: December 07, 2018, 03:13:18 pm » players what can we do to improve this server?

I think the biggest thing you can do is help spread the word once we release patch v44 and begin our marketing efforts again. We will have welcome back prizes, email campaigns, free lottos, and maybe a referral system and we'll need everyone's help to tell their friends, old allies, etc. that MD is back and better than ever.

That may take the form of making videos, social media posts, and things like this. If you have any ideas on approaches we can take to spread the word and incentivize others to do the same, please let us know. Rebuilding the huge community we once had will be a primary focus post Patch 44.

Would any of this have anything to do with me being unable to log in to the game for the past week or so?

No; nothing much has changed on the live server for the past few weeks

CT title is better than BFS one, yet it's okay for GM's to solo CT for players to obtain title. I don't get the logic.

That's been litigated and explained already. Everyone seemed satisfied with the result so I'm not sure why you're still bringing it up. Give it a rest

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.

And that is one of the biggest problems when it comes to attracting new players. They have to fight a constant uphill battle which they can never win, hence why this server is dying just like all other JD pservers because all the new 'content' that good ol' ZX adds, is some kind of a "grind this for 1000 hours, then get this OP shit" instead of some actual content...

On a side note though, the drop rates are ok... grinded there for about 1 night and got 200ad. Not bad, but once again, the OP get more OP and the non-op stay non-op.

I hear you LuXueqi, balancing things for new and old players alike is quite a challenge. Do you have any suggestions on this front?

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!

How did you install server?

Paste the contents of your element\userdata\server\serverlist.txt file

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.
