Client patch 0.5.8 (b)

Morning chaps, This is a small client patch to address an issue affecting android users on KitKat or lower not being able to enter the game due to a client crash. A library added in the last patch was leveraging a piece of API only introduced in Lollipop, so I have rolled that library back to 2014 which should address the issue. Foxish

Midnight server patch

Hey everyone! A server patch has just gone live that adds special handling around server shutdowns. From now on when the server shuts down the following happens: All active events are cancelled New events cannot be activated during the shutdown Players who activated the now cancelled events receive fresh scrolls back in their inventory Even if there is only 1 minute left of an event, if a shutdown is triggered the player who activated that event will receive a fresh 1 hour scroll.

Fixes for various store related crashes[…]

Android in-app purchases are live!

Hello everyone! I am now working part-time, giving me one day a week to spend dedicated to Mirage. Over the new year I have met with business minded folks and spoken to my accountant, and they made it clear to me what my immediate priority had to be. I know it isn’t super fun stuff, but if I want to persue this game properly it has to start paying for itself – and for it to do that there needs to be a way for you guys to buy stuff. The first update of January is here, and it brings[…]
