This is a minor maintenance update. If you already have Knights v.22 installed then there is probably no need to upgrade. However, if you are running your own server, you should upgrade in order to get the fix for #229.

Changes in this release:


Amiga Knights

Sometimes I get contacted by people who want to run the original Amiga version of the game. (Obviously, this is only possible if you have an emulator or a real Amiga.) For those people I provide the following links:

Lua Scripting

[#70, #94, #162, #183] A brand new Lua scripting system has been implemented. This makes it possible to make all kinds of gameplay additions and modifications to Knights.

The Lua API is documented on the wiki here, and you can ask questions and see what others are doing on the Knights forum.

The Lua scripting system is still evolving, so if you would like to see new features implemented, please make a suggestion on the forums.

New tutorial

[#80] The Tutorial has been completely revised. Instead of a randomly generated map, there is now a fixed map which walks you through the various gameplay features. Hopefully this makes the Tutorial a bit more accessible to new players.

Gameplay changes

[#197] The following changes have been made to bring the gameplay closer to the original Knights:
