- The game runs much faster than version 0.5.30.5
- Improved some of the graphics and included some new ones
- Improved some of the UI, including a new FPS menu
- You can now see your surroundings when you're in dark places.
- Pressing [~] will freeze the game and allow you to look at your surroundings.
And with this update comes the screenshot contest and some important news; In the following weeks, we're going to publish a new web site, trailer and an official ETA of the Steam's Early Access (which will be announced at the 25th), and we will feature the best screenshot of the week on our new website's home page and gallery. This means that you'll have the chance to be part of our Artwork just by posting a screenshot from Legends of Ellaria!
How to update / download Legends of Ellaria ?
You can run your older version of Legends of Ellaria (v 0.5.30.5) with an internet connection, and will receive a message asking to update your version. The update is automatic and harmless. Just be sure not to close the Update Manager during the update process.
In case you don’t have an older version installed, or run into a problem during the update, you can download Legends of Ellaria from here.
How to participate in the Best Screenshot Contest ?
While playing the game in FPS mode, you may press the [~] button (the one left of the 1 button on your keyboard). This will freeze the game and allow you to move the camera up to some degree. From there, you can take a screenshot (By pressing the PrintScreen button and saving it through an image editor), and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . You may also take screenshots from the RTS mode or in FPS with the menu, though the freeze mode can make some really cool / funny pictures :D.
You can also send more than one screenshot, and you can include your desktop or unedited screenshots if you don't want to bother with editing.
So that's it for today. We're going to post a really cool fan artwork image next week and some important news in the following weeks.
Until then, have fun and stay tuned for our next update!
