Official start date announced!

2021-Oct-26 14:30

The server will start 29 October 2021, 20:00 GMT+2 (Paris time)

Bot edition - what does it mean?

2021-Oct-26 14:00

The server will be populated by human-like bots leveling and trading items together with players. The bots are able to select appropriate spots, kill monsters, complete quest events and change job. Bots know how to add stats and use skills in combat. They also have randomized AFK hours when they set up shop with own items and search other shops to buy items for themselves. You can actually use these bots to buy armor/weapons with lower price than merchant's, or sell your items to nearby bot if your price will be attractive enough. The bots are smart enough to buy medicines, waters and empty their inventory in case it is full.

The number of bots will be adjusted accordingly when needed.

If the bots will be fun to play with, there are plans to improve this system by adding party/guild formation and possibility to join parties with bots. Join discord to give feedback and suggest improvements!

Project details and rates

2021-Oct-26 12:00

Project Codename: Bango Classic - bots edition

This is going to be Classic KalOnline Server based on 2009 gameplay. Server files are clean with minimal modifications to support 2018 engine. Why 2018 engine and new UI you may ask? This is because the server is planned to be long term and eventually, as time goes on, introduce 3rd job and balanced thief! The modifications contain neccessary adjustment to block common cheats, hacks and exploits such as cooldown hack, imp hack and so on. No source code was reused from the community, everything is re-coded from ground up!

Rates

The classic gameplay is designed to be rather slow and steady:

  • - Exp rate: x6
  • - Egg exp: x5
  • - Drop rate: x3
  • - Imp/mix rate: x3
  • - Quest EXP: x6
  • - Quest Drop: x3

Classes and jobs

Players may choose between 3 characters: Knight, Mage, Archer. Thief is considered to be added in late game. Each class can choose its job at 50Lv. (second job). The third job at 70Lv. is disabled but considered to be added in late game if there will be enough players reaching 70Lv.

Questing

The classic KalOnline questing consists of 2 quest kinds: Event and Task. This server changes nothing in terms these systems. You need to follow main quest line (Events) to change first and second job. The third questing system are Mission Letters. These are repeatable missions you can complete by talking with Mission Announcer. The usual flow is to trade monster heads for EXP.

Dungeons and leveling areas

The only available dungeon at the beginning will be Abandoned Grave (Dungeon 1). As the game progresses towards higher levels more dungeons and floors will be opened for players. Since this is classic server there are no custom playing areas and the monsters have original stats.

New AI and Monster Blob

The server is adjusted for "new" monster AI that makes the monster run towards player immediately when player gets into monster sight range. There is also posibility to destroy (blob) the monster by running into safe zone. There is no button to switch the blob on/off. The button got obsolete since there are no glitches that make the monsters blob in a middle of a lure.

Player Skills

There are no custom skills, and the existing skills damage and cooldown formulas are not modified. This means we have the same balancement as KalOnline used to have in 2009. Even Life Absorption is level based (but without the annoying 0HP bug!). There is difference for CJB buffs - all have lasting time increased to 30min.

PvP content - player versus player

Castle War - every week (Sunday), winning guild getting the merchant tax income.
10-minute sin masks - to enforce fighting for spots in crowded areas; dying with mask on has 10% probability of dropping an item!
Duel Tournaments - not automated, organised manually by game master every few days with custom rewards.

Teleporting

For ease of teleportation, there are chat commands: /naro /cargo /mine /fort /bird /cop. You can also buy teleports from merchants and when used, the items are not removed from inventory. There are also D1/D2/D3/D4/Devil Castle teleporters around the towns. All other areas need to be reached by foot or by using Saving and Moving Scrolls.

Teacher and Student system

There is classic teacher and student system. Players up to level 11 can ask for a teacher and receive full G8 set in return. This enables in-game teacher and student chat. Players do not receive cash for reaching 16/30Lv.

Features not available on this server

Shaman, swordtrickster, costumes, mana meds, dragon spirit scrolls, qigongs, gongs, trigrams, hanin essences, buff scrolls, daily quests, pets, riding, custom pvps.

Server opened for bots

2021-Jun-01 16:00

The server is available for bots only. More than 500 bots are testing the server 24/7.
