Beware, beware the halloween hare
Again the spooky season is upon us, and once more that wicked creature, the Halloween Hare, is on the loose!

The vicious bunny loves to sneak up on the unwary, and many innocent travellers has been transformed by its mysterious magic!
There are reports that now some of its victims are turned into particularly monstrous beings!
So you who leave the safety of your home town and venture forth into the wilderness, beware lest you be turned into a creature of the night!

Spooky October!

Update 1.58 - Addons, Improvements
Today we're happy to present you with RetroCores 1.58!

With this update we've finally made addons possible!
We've kicked it off with adding the 7 classic outfits that can wear addons, in a quite traditional way.
You can see a list of available outfits and addons in our library.

And in the future we're going to add more outfits with addons!

Together with ability for addons, we've added the necessary items for to be able to make them in the traditional way.
Additionally, we've added quest for both obsidian knife and blessed wooden stake.

We've also added Ferumbras with a own raid, but be careful, he might not be as you think!

Additional fixes/changes
  • Made surprise boxes stackable.
  • Increase raid rate among more rare raids.
  • Fixed a glitch that made it hard jumping in CAMs. (this also made you more likely to lagg on weaker PCs).
  • Background performance upgrade of both game and client.

We hope you'll enjoy this update and that you'll be looking forward facing the future together with us in RetroCores!

Fifth season of Zenera launching on September 22! (Now with HD graphics!)

We are happy to present you with our fifth seasonal world Zenera!
Launching on September 22 at 17:00 CEST!

We've had a poll to see what people wanted out of the fifth season of Zenera.

You can find the poll here:
World Suggestions -Zenera 5:th season settings.

A more loose world:
Zenera is a world made to maximize your fun by balancing laziness and grinding in a mid-rate way!

Zenera is mid-rated seasonal world that will bring much joy and feelings!
A season will last as long as players are enjoying the world, minimum 5 months.
If the world is unable to "die" it can run for years.

Obtain 3 days of golden account for free!
Everyone who manages to login the first hour of Zenera will gain 3 days of golden account.
Meaning between 17:00 - 18:00 CEST on September 22.

Rates of Zenera:
Experience: 16x - 1x, Staged Experience Table.
Skills: 5x
Magic: 2x
Loot: 2x
Regen: view.

Character creations in Zenera will be opened one hour before the launch.

Golden Account Differences:
We'd like to point out and highlight for people that haven't noticed that there are some differences with golden account in this world!

  • Free accounts are able to travel with Ships/Carpets.
  • Free accounts are able to access all cities.
  • Free accounts are able to use all spells.

Central host, for the entire world!
Zenera is hosted in Miami with great systems to make everyone able to play without having to deal with laggs!
You will shortly in Zenera notice that you have quite a low ping, no matter where in the world you are!

Now imagine that, a central world, bringing many cultures into it, imagine the greatness of wars this will bring when people from the corners of the world could unite under one banner to take on people from another part of the world!

Additional differences in Zenera compared to other worlds:

  • Item-Hotkeys are available.
  • Built-In Rune-Maker is available.
  • Equipment upgraded after Rookgaard. (only if your items are worse. Leather Set, Studded shield, and 12 atk weapon)
  • All spells are free of charge.
  • Rings/Items give 2x more regen.
  • You can right-click change gold.
  • Desert-Quest is soloable.

No Supplies in client-store!
As voted there will not be any runes, manas or other kind of supplies in the store in Zenera's 5:th season!

Built-In Rune-Maker:
As per the poll, the Rune-Maker will be available in the world and be legal to use.
Keep in mind that you're only allowed to login maximum 3 characters from the same computer!
Going beyond this limit could result in banishment/deletion depending on how many characters's you try to login.
Check rules 3c and 3d for more details.

Skill Pools:
We don't want people to feel they've wasted their time and efforts in Zenera for nothing when it comes to a season end.
So when the time comes for a new season to start, the time when Zenera will reset and go offline to prepare for the new season, all characters will be converted into skill-pools that you can view on your account panel and use on any characters within a few small restrictions.

About 30% of your efforts are saved into your skill-pools, which is decided on the day Zenera is reset.
Now mind that 30% of effort and 30% of skill is completely different things!
Obviously, experience will be easier to obtain in mid-rate thanks to that you get levels quicker, there you'd be hunting rotworms in a normal world you're probably already hunting dragons in Zenera, if you understand the point.
So keep in mind, 30% of your efforts, your energy put into the character is saved (exp, skills, magic lvl).

When you've obtained pools, it could look like this in your account-pool:
When using the pool you can choose how much to use ranging from 10 to 100% of your pool.
Note that pools cannot be used in seasonal worlds such as Zenera but only other worlds (Normal, Hardcore).

Refund of points:
We don't want people to worry about purchasing something and suddenly Zenera would be shut down.
First, Zenera would have announcements weeks beforehand that season end is near, but also there will be point refunds for recent purchases!

Shop points refunds are based on % when the purchase was made.
If you purchased anything a day before the shutdown you'd get 100% of the points back.
If you purchased something a week before, you'd get 93% of the points back.
Decreasing by 1% for everyday.
All types of purchases are refundable with exception of golden account and shop point scroll-related purchases since they're global and not only limited Zenera.

Additional changes since last season:

We hope you're as hyped for the launch of this sweet seasonal world, just as we in the staff are!

Update 1.56 - HD Graphics, Daily Quests, Improvements
Today we're happy to present you with RetroCores 1.56!

HD Graphics
We've increased the base-size of the game from previous 32x32 to 64x64 pixels enabling us to enchant the graphics and create new wonderful, detailed and even extra small things.
We've enchanted every sprite of RetroCores to be as good looking as possible as 4x the size while still keeping the oldschool aspect.
Original 32p graphics

New 64p graphics

Original 32p graphics

New 64p graphics

Some items/sprites might look weird/off and we'll of course track them down and try to correct them to look as good as possible.
So don't worry in case you find something that doesn't look alright, we are not going to stop trying to better everything!

Additional to HD graphics, we've made you able to adjust the thickness of the attack-square
You can adjust it in Options > Graphics > Attack square thickness.

Daily Quests
We've added the exterminator missions, which is a daily mission there you in each city can sign up to find and exterminate small pest creatures for a reward.
There's even a mission in Rookgaard that can be completed on daily basis!

Other Improvements

We've upgraded how the network works around the game and client, within our own network around the globe, to make everything smoother, and chance for troubles less than ever.

We've improved the kick system so that if you lose connection, your character will be kicked and character-list returned to you within a few seconds.
Before this, a kick resulted in a up to minute long "freeze" before you could "relog".

Lock-Button Memory
We've made the client to remember all windows with lock-buttons, so when you restart the client all the windows that was locked, still is.
For example, battle-list, skills, loot , exp/h windows and more.

Lock inventory related windows
We've added an option there you can lock equipment window, health/mana window, buttons-window and minimap so they cannot be dragged.
You can find this option in Options > Others > Lock inventory windows and minimap.

More frequent raids
We've increased the raid frequency by 100% to make the game slightly more interesting.
Keep in mind that some creatures in some raids drop special items.

Final words
Other than those noticeable changes, we've done some background related improvements to make everything smoother and stable.
We're never stopping chasing perfection and will keep trying to improve everything.
