Fixed a bug where the bottom right snap corner was not correctly placing overlays. The door to enter the Kingdom of Miscellania will no longer appear open but not allow players to walk through it. Fixed a bug where the boss log was off-centre on resizable. Defence animations will no longer play if the attacker splashed a spell. Fixed a bug where players could walk off the roof on the first obstacle of the canifis agility course. Fixed a bug where the zul-andra teleports would announce in yell. Mobile Fixes: iOS crash fixed: For players who have been using the debug client on iPhone, you can now use the main client! The crashing/flickering after clicking "Play" on the welcome screen should no longer encounter this issue. Android crash fixed: Some Android devices would encounter a black screen upon logging in, this should no longer occur. Improved reliability and functionality of the tap-to-drop option. Fixed a bug where closing the bank would freeze the mobile client for a second. Fixed a bug where opening/closing the looting bag would freeze the mobile client for a second. Fixed a bug where selecting a spell to autocast, and then walking to another tile would remove the autocast spell that was just selected on mobile. Fixed a bug where taps would sometimes go through the chatbox even when the “click through chatbox” option was disabled. Fixed a bug where selecting spells to cast would cause the UI to disappear. Fixed a bug where the minimap would not draw correctly in dungeons. Moving your camera would sometimes "hitch" around the original place you put down your finger, this should no longer occur. Hello everyone, Today's update is mostly focused on launching the Mobile-locked Ironman tournament, which is now live! There are many different prizes to be won, in many different areas of the game to balance out the prize winners, so make sure to check them out in the infographic below. You won't want to miss out! We've also released a mobile client update to go along with the tournament release, as well as a few bug fixes & QoL on the server side: Mobile Client Changes: QoL: The “Mem” indicator will no longer draw below the FPS indicator if it is not supported (0Mb). Increased the outer zoom limit on landscape/portrait mode. FPS Improvements: We've made some FPS improvements in general that should apply to all devices. We will continue to make improvements where we can, as well as bug fixes. Bug fixes: Fixed a bug where the combat tab would show “-2” as the current weapon after opening an interface. Fixed a bug where some textured tiles (water at motherlode mine, for example) looked buggy. Fixed a bug where some interfaces were transparent/wouldn’t load properly. Fixed a bug where the screen fade interface would not cover the entire screen in some cases. Fixed a bug where some interfaces would cause the UI to disappear (for example the trading post, and Wintertodt). Fixed an issue with vibrations when dragging an inventory item (android only). Removed the small gap between the chatstones/chatbox on landscape mode when the chatbox was not transparent. Fixed a bug where players could not change the settings in the xp settings interface on mobile. Fixed a bug where using high/low alchemy wouldn’t properly change to the player’s inventory when selected. Fixed a memory leak on iOS which would cause the app to eventually crash (white screen followed by a reset of the app). Note: For any players who were experiencing crashes on early versions of iOS 17 after locking their phone with the client open, this should no longer be an issue on the latest version of iOS (17.1 or higher), so make sure to update to the latest version if this is an issue you’re experiencing. Server Changes: Bug Fixes: Players’ boosted stats/hp will no longer be reset when entering the inferno/fight caves. Fixed a bug where left clicking a skill would not open the skill interface on the normal client. Fixed a bug with the greater abyssal demon teleport players into walls (again). Fixed a bug where the Hide Others’ pets option on the entity hider plugin with hide the local player's pet. Fixed a bug where players would lose their jad/zuk slayer task after completing the first killcount. Fixed a bug where the Ghommal defender variants wouldn't work for the Falo the bard clue scroll step. Fixed a bug where the last logged in time was not properly shown on the welcome screen. Zulrah teleport option has been restored. Quality of Life: Players can now access the visual ticks plugin through the plugin-hub. The mark of darkness cooldown has been added to the Timers plugin. Recommendations: iOS: If you are open to upgrading to iOS 17.2 Beta, Alora gives about 25% better FPS on this version. For any players who were experiencing crashes on early versions of iOS 17 after locking their phone with the client open, this should no longer be an issue on the latest version of iOS (17.1 or higher), so make sure to update to the latest version if this is an issue you’re experiencing. Android: We strongly recommend running the client using the latest version of Chrome browser. For any other inquiries, make sure to check out the Mobile client troubleshooting guide: https://www.alora.io/forums/topic/85358-mobile-client-faqtroubleshooting/ We hope you enjoy this update & tournament, and we are counting on you to continue reporting mobile bugs so that we can get them all patched up. Best of luck in the tournament! Omicron
Alora Mobile Is Live! (iOS & Android) Hello everyone, Alora Mobile is finally here! You can now access the mobile client by going to the following URL on your mobile device: https://mobile.alora.io The app is not available in the App Store, so you'll have to download it by following the on-screen instructions. On Android, you should get an "Install App" button, but if you don't see that, there are instructions to install below: Installation instructions for iOS: Installation instructions for Android: Troubleshooting: Low FPS: We are continuing to make FPS improvements where we can, but the best thing you can do to improve FPS is to have a recent, powerful phone to handle the game. You can also play with the settings interface in the "Mobile" section to reduce render distance, limit entity rendering, turn on Low-detail, etc. Periodic crashing on iPhone: There is currently a bug on Safari that could cause a crash on some older/weaker iPhones after some time (usually after being in-game for 10+ minutes), we are working on patching this up but in the meantime if your iPhone is older than iPhone 13, or you have an iPhone mini, that this could happen to you, and don't partake in dangerous content for the time being. Flickering black screen after logging in on iPhone: As far as we can tell, this is due to an iOS bug. We suspect that this will be fixed soon, but in the meantime we have provided a "safe-mode" client for you to use if this happens to you: https://mobile.alora.io/debug This client has lower performance than the main client, but if you are experiencing this issue it is currently the only way to play. Stuck on "Allocating memory" on startup: If you experience this issue, your app is likely corrupt. We are still working on diagnosing what causes this, but in order to fix it, we recommend deleting the app from your homescreen, and then completely clearing your cache (On iPhone, you would go to Settings -> Safari -> Clear Caches & History and select the "All Time" option), and then re-installing the client again. Bugs are to be expected, so please be mindful of this when participating in dangerous content where you may lose items. Otherwise, have fun, and we'll keep you updated on the $3,000 Mobile-Locked Ironman Tournament coming up next week! :) We'll see you in-game on mobile!
