Project statusFormats of files are being digged and server is being coded in compatibility mode with RoM II client. First working version of hat was coded. Formats
We took out quite many formulas from RoM II (but far not all), algorithms of vision area forming, path finding were analysed.
Project is non-commercial, participants are working at it in their free timee, so it is being developed not too fast. You can speed up this process, if you help us.
