After much debate in the team, we have finally decided on the compensation for those who were affected by the much previous data loss. All players who were affected possibly by the data loss have been given 20 Coins/Gold.. The data loss was unfortunate when it happened and thus we have as of the data loss taken measures to make sure it NEVER happens again.. As previously stated, the data is backed up at an hourly interval and uploaded to multiple secure locations in our control to prevent that sort of thing from ever happening again.

Thank you for your patience,

The launcher should now be stabilized and usable on all three supported platforms including Mac!

With a lot of effort on our part, the Mac & Linux client should work just like the Windows client.

edit: If you are having an issue on Mac with the game opening for a second then closing, install the latest JDK: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html

Hello all,

We have finished the launcher revamp and the servers are back to being functional. The issue with switching towns is fixed, as well as creating new accounts.

With this launcher revamp, it will be easier for us to work on future updates.

Also Linux is now supported again, we're still working on Mac.

Thanks,

We think that the current launcher has had way to many issues and therefore are officially retiring the current launcher. The developer who will remain unnamed that developed this launcher has stepped down, as he no longer has time to maintain and fix the bugs in his launcher. With that all said, I have personally taken on the task of completely rewriting the launcher. This launcher will be cross platform compatible. Out of the box, it will support Windows, Mac, and Linux. We will be putting the game servers into maintenance mode to prepare for this major update. This update will only be focusing on releasing a stable launcher using a heavily modified Threerings launcher system that is used to this day. We hope you will understand and work with us on this.. It's been a long time coming and it's about time we fix the launcher correctly.

Thank you,

Hello,

The servers are offline due to an attempted data breach. The game servers were targeted. Rest assured, no data was compromised, but the servers will be down nonetheless until we redeploy them with additional security measures.

We expect to have the servers back online tomorrow.

Thanks for understanding.

Hello all,

The server data has been migrated to our new host and the servers are back online.

Unfortunately, we had to use a backup from around September 13th, so data from that point until about September 18th will be missing. The old server hosting company was uncooperative in giving us the backups after that point on their end. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Upon launching the game, you will now need to register your account - don't worry, your account isn't being reset. There will be a password required as an extra layer of security because we added the Coins system. Check your spam folder if you can't find the verification email. Coins can be purchased at https://banghowdy.com/buy.php

Thank you,
YourFunWorld Studios team.
