Merry Christmas!

I don't know about all of you, but I've been having a great day. But, I won't bore you with the details. Basically, I've had less than an hour to work on this release since the last time I posted. And, on top of that because of some technical difficulties I'm currently unable to test it myself, so, long story short, I wasn't able to bring all the features to this release as I had originally planned two posts ago... but I did still get in the most functional ones :)

Release of 12/25/06:
For those of you who've been aching for WSAD you can now have it. Basically, for wsad people, there is now an option in the config file that allows you to switch from arrow keys to wsad. And, for people who aren't brave enough to change it themselves, included in the download is a WSAD.cfg that you can just rename to client.cfg if you want an easy fix. Side effects of WSAD; it will type in the command console. To help this problem you can easily erase whatever has been typed in by hitting escape or control. I'll work on better functionality when I can actually test it myself to make sure such a change would work.
There are now realtime shadows for all characters. This is turned on by default but can be turned off in the config file. In testing of this feature it seems that it might not work at all with some computers. I think that was fixed, it definitely works on my computer right now, so if you see no difference I'd like to know.
The mouse wheel and camera bugs have been fixed, as far as I can tell. If you find otherwise or find any new bugs please report them.
Another thing, clouds have been turned off as a temporary fix to their ugliness. If you liked them and still want them, however, just change cloud_count at the bottom of the config to anything besides 0.

Next release date right now will be set to this Saturday. In saturday's release I plan to put in all the features that I wasn't able to fit in this release, as well as some voice over ip action, as I now have a headset to test it with. Merry Christmas!
