Welcome to the Alpha 23 update blog post. The main additions for Alpha 23 come in preparations for much bigger features planned in Hordes.io soon! They will allow us to set up a better basis for Trading, Warehouse features, and generally make everyone's lives easier.
The biggest addition for Alpha 23 is a complete user account system. From now on, you can play all your characters from a centralized account!
Don’t worry, your old characters are not gone - you can add them to your new account.
To register a new Hordes.io account, visit the sign up page. Fill out the three empty fields:
Finally, press the “Sign up” button. If anything goes wrong, you will be presented with on screen instructions.
On the character page, you can see a list of all your currently playable characters. You can also delete them by pressing the little icon. Note that this will permanently delete your character.
While logged in, you can simply play any of your characters by visiting the main page and clicking on a character, then pressing play!
You can also switch between characters in the game now by clicking on your character's name in the upper right corner and selecting any other character.
Players from before Alpha 23 might want to add their old characters to their new Hordes.io account. This can easily be done through the character management page. Simply type in your old character ID into the “Claim ID” field, and you are good to go!
Did you forget your password on accident? Not a problem anymore. Visit the password reset page and enter your email address.
We will then send you an email to your email address. Open this email in your email account, and click on the link. This link will bring you to the password reset page. On this page, you have to enter your email address again, and choose a new password.
Remember to always log out of your account if you are playing in a public place ( At school, in a Web-Cafe, etc.) There are two ways to log out, through the account manager, or right inside of the game, in the character selection menu.
We have added a little latency display in your game settings menu. This will tell you about your game latency (lag). The lower this number is, the better. Should you be experiencing numbers above 150, you are probably lagging in some ways. This might be related to your location, or using WIFI.
People were sometimes experiencing a bug with the trader, causing you to sell your items even if the trader window was already closed. We chose to change the trader interaction. He also got a slight hp regeneration nerf, so he might actually be killable!
We improved server performance and fixed memory leaks, so we chose to increase the intervals of automatic server restarts to 400 minutes.
