Knights 016 Released
« on: February 19, 2011, 07:23:14 PM »
Knights version 016 has been released!

Download it from: http://www.knightsgame.org.uk/download.html

The main new feature is the addition of a new mouse-and-keyboard control system. The idea behind this is to try to make the game a bit more user-friendly for newbies. Although I think there is still more work to do in this area -- e.g. a better tutorial might be nice -- I think the new controls are a good start and hopefully will allow more players to enjoy the game.

If you have any comments on the new controls, or ideas for improvements, please feel free to comment below.

The old control system is, of course, still available. You can select which control system to use from the Options screen.

Enjoy the release :)

Next on the agenda is improving modding support (including Lua scripting) so that people can make their own mods for Knights.

Is the server down?
The server list seems to always show 2 players online, but I can't connect.

Seems like it crashed. I'll investigate. In the meantime I've restarted the server, it should work now.
