[S][W][R]U4 Multiplayer and Lazarus nearing completion

15th June 2005 by Dino

There have been a couple of updates to Ultima 4 Multiplayer in the past few weeks. The latest reports that the Stygian Abyss maps have been completed and the game is almost fully finishable. A new poll has also been put on the website.

Good news also comes from team Lazarus, which has filled its need for dialogue writers and is scheduled to complete its dialogue by the end of July - after which final testing can be done and the game can be released.

A progress report from Pentagram states that effects for magic weapons (such as Flame Sting) and more types of monster treasure have been implemented. A little bug where text and container windows appeared partially out of the screen has also been fixed.

The latest dragon on the roster is... well, I'm afraid I won't be mentioning additions to the UDIC roster any more. Seems you now have to log on to stay checking the roster, which is more trouble than I'm willing to take, and which also means I can't post direct links to the roster any more. I don't think anyone ever really bothered to check the latest dragons on the roster, and quite frankly, I don't know why I did. Perhaps it was interesting to see some of the latest dragons actually being project leaders, a couple of years ago, but that doesn't really happen any more. So there, no more dragon announcements here.

Withstand the Fury Dragon at Aiera noticed a topic in the Exult forum where Crystal_Elf is posting new, remade graphics for both Ultima 7s.
