Furcadia will be updating on April 6th 2007. This will not be the full Kitterwing update originally planned, though it will still have many cool new features. Windows came out with a new OS, Vista, so we needed to put out a new client that worked well with it. Since we are putting in needed programming to make Vista work, we decided to put together a bunch of the stuff that was close to ready into this update as well. It was supposed to be just a quick little update, which has turned into a pretty major one!

You will be prompted to download when you try to log in. You can wait for the game to send you the download or go to one of our download hosting sites to get the update - see the bottom of this page. We do not expect for any of your dreams or .ini files to be damaged or lost. They will still be there when you update. You can rename and save them someplace else though, if it would make you feel safer. If you have patched DEFAULT patch folder you should back up your changes as those files will be overwritten. Note that some files will be installing in your "My Documents" Folder, as Vista requires that any files that are "written" to, need to be there. That's where you will find your logfiles!
