The developers have converted ACEmu from a clustered framework to a single server framework. This simplifies deployment and future development. Now, the server only listens for connections on one port, not two.
They’ve fixed a core network fragment issue. This fix has also fixed other issues like turbine chat not working for some characters.
Their current framework base is pretty solid. They’re now working on multi-player, object broadcasting, landblock code, etc…
Oh, also, since my last update, logout works now as well.
