The last couple of days I have been working on some back-end updates for Aethora. Not a whole lot new that you will see as players, I’m afraid. If you noticed the site seemed to be up and down a lot in the last day or so, that was the reason. Hopefully, from here on out things will be pretty stable.
The only major visual change you might notice is the ability to change the tile size when in battle; it can be changed to “small” or “tiny”. I’m hoping these options will encourage people to try out the game on smaller devices. Personally, I just got an EeePC a couple weeks ago, and the “small” tile-size is just right for the 800×480 resolution of that sub-notebook. Even if you’re on a 1024×768 screen, you may have found things a bit cramped and the “small” tileset might be more comfortable. Standard disclaimer applies: these smaller tilesets look best in modern browsers (Firefox, IE7, Opera, probably Safari) but look like blocky crap in IE6 (but still playable).
