So I've decided to up the beta with some of the stuff we've been working on.
This beta will last for as long as it needs to (possibly 2-3 months). The main server will stay online the whole time. All you need to do to play the beta is use the current Olympia launcher and click Play Beta.
Not much of this stuff has been thoroughly tested so there are most likely a lot of bugs. You may lose stuff and there will also most likely be wipes. Keep us informed of the bugs via the in-game Feedback system (F5 -> Feedback) or in beta bugs thread. Try not to create duplicates or tell us about bugs already present in the live 5.3 version (we're already aware of most of them).
Also keep in mind that this is purely for testing and trying things out, no matter how crazy they might look. For that reason, I expect people to be respectful and mature. If you don't like something, then state it, just don't be annoying about it.

The following are beta-specific features / setup:
Gold: x25
Exp: x12
First droprate: x10
Second droprate: Increased, but hard to say how much (acts like infinite rep/cont)
Skill learning rate: x5

New features:
Resolution increased: 640x480 -> 1280x720 (will be lower if not supported, which is unlikely). This might make it hard to play in small monitors. We will try 1366x768 later on (better fit for widescreens, but might be too big) and 800x600. Note that you can use the command "/bigitems" to help if you find items on the ground too small.
Magic spells have their range limited to what the range is on 640x480.
Market System available at the City Hall Officer (this is far from finished and still needs explanations in-game, but is usable to a basic degree, if you can understand it without an explanation)
Heldenian (not currently scheduled, manually activated)
New Weather: Storm
Char Info tooltips (formulae, etc...)
Items will no longer be dropped on the floor when giving an item to a player whose inventory is full
Greatly increased drop rate of Helclaw and Tigerworm;
Increased drop rate of Wyverns
Zems not longer work in PL and changed ML pits
Charge wands no longer needs requirements to equip. Not allowed to cast if not enough int.
Shift + Picking item from the ground now picks all items from the ground


Fixes:
Fixed pulling/logging out with Merien Shield
Armor Break no longer strips the caster
Fixed Ice weather damage bonus being 0 instead of 3 during heavy snow
Fixed being able to withdraw items from mailbox which you can't carry (will fail to withdraw rather than drop it on the floor)
Fixed Page-Up being disabled while chatting
Fixed a bug where giving olympia coins to a player could result in depositing them in the account instead (giving them to CH officer)
Client now correctly deactivates when minimized while running in Windowed mode
Fixed item getting stuck when giving to mobs
Fixed fragile items sometimes causing haste


I will update this thread frequently with most changes done in the beta.

5-7 October:
Increased font size
Fixed some sounds not being properly centered
Fixed client not getting highest resolution sometimes
Fixed a client crash and a few server crashes
8 October:
Fixed Talk button missing from City Hall officer (can now return quests again)
Fixed skills not resetting when required stats were too low
Fixed incorrect weather in Icebound causing casting probability to drop to 1%
Fixed int requirement to cast with charge wands's spells being below required int instead of above
Fixed chat messages and damage not being shown in certain parts of the screen
Fixed average PA on F5 being incorrect when using a shield
Fixed coords on minimap mouse over being in the wrong position
10 October:
Set the maximum resolution to 800x600 (currently if your computer doesn't support 800x600 you might find the game a bit screwy).
Re-added bows back to shop.
The spell range limitation was removed. Thus, the range of spells and bow is slightly increased. If this doesn't work out too well we'll add it back again and see how it goes.
11 October:
Fixed ghost players/NPCs
Fixed being able to summon infinitely
/resetstats now resets skills as well, since people are abusing this
Removed FPS counter since it's not a good measure of client performance. Refer to the new Perf values instead
12 October:
Fixed unclickable region on the bottom left of the screen (most likely fixes not being able to buy items)
Fixed WH window bugging when depositing item
Enabled WH sorting and grouping by default
15 October:
Fixed expired auctions in the market sending items related to that auction to incorrect people
Fixed a client crash on market
Fixed items in bag getting stuck sometimes
Reduced the occurrences of spells sometimes not casting
18 October:
Fixed market auctions on deleted chars causing login to crash
Fixed a few bugs with Market (not able to cancel auction, see offer multiple items, etc)

Cleroth, I'm really glad about the new beta.
My question is really simple.
¿What's gonna happen with the current official server?
Is it gonna be wiped?
I wanna know this just to know if I just "pause" playing HB until the new server is released.
Many ppl have the same question.

Thank you very much!

That's a difficult quest for Cleroth, announcing a wipe would kill current server.

However transparency is always the best policy.

Yes bro, I know the answer is not quite simple, but as I don't use to play beta servers because they're BETA, and I dont like to waste my time doing Eks, or simply getting cool items just to lose the in the next months.
I love Olympia and play it since 2012, and I know that if the answer is YES (wipe soon) not me, but maany many ppl will continue playing and also many other ppl that quited long time ago will come back.
The reality is that Olympia has been the most estable server i've ever played since INT and USA.

I have been playing the beta and enjoying it quite a lot. More than I ever enjoyed helbreath to be honest. There are a few tweaks and changes that needs to be made, but thats what betas are for.. Also I would just want to say great job on the changes Cleroth, this resolution change is fucking amazing once u get into it. And to the guys asking about wipe, I saw torana confirm a wipe would be coming on official server on the beta. So I guess Cleroth told him that!

Some UPDATE for Cleroth:

I was pvping earlier on, there was a few of us, when one of the characters bumped( thats what i think happaned it may have happaned for another unconnected reason) I could see his character just standing there, even though he was running away and he wasn't actually there. This happaned twice.

I also attached a screenshot to this post, i dont know if i did it the right way or not, but basically I can't see my stats bar, its kinda of transparent... I can only see the actual stats (HP amount, mana amount, etc) and I can only see the other buttons for the char stats, bag, chat history etc, if I roll the mouse over them.

My Screen resolution is: 1366 x 768.

Are there plans to make this compatible with Windows 8? -- without suffering from HORRIBLE fps?

I've seen HB run smooth in Win8 32/64 bit OS on other private servers.
