It's been quite a while since oldunreal had an overhaul, but we are moving to another server which require some updates and changes. The biggest change is the migration of our old reliable YaBB forum to phpBB. This system expects you to login with your username and old password known from YaBB.
If you experience any problems there is also the usual "password forgotten" function. Don't forget to clear your browser cache!

To make a start, here are the public headers for this game, for advanced (native) modding. I have trouble with these with the CRT when using anything but VC6, but still, here they are :)

while RunePubSrc100 was released indeed later than 107, it was given out to the community in order to support the specific Rune 100 players.

As far as I know there have been no releases of headers for current 110 version which is sold @ steam and gog.

Installation instructions:

- Automatic Install This is applicable only for Windows users. Use the installer

Although manual installation is possible and can be found through "Release Notes"
This small patch should correct some problems noted with the original 1.08 patch released in September 2005.
The issues are listed below, along with the offending filename(s)

* Custom scoreboards not displaying (SATools2, BMScoreboard, etc.) (RuneServerAdmin.u)
* Hang at "Connecting" when trying to join a 1.08 server (RuneServerAdmin.u)
* Other players using HOV and non-default skins are invisible in 1.08 servers (RuneServerAdmin.u)
* When trying to join another 1.08 server, you loopback to the server you were previously on (UWindow.u & UBrowser.u)
* Game crashes if testing maps in non-dedicated mode on your machine, then you decide to join another 1.08 server (UWindow.u & UBrowser.u)

Some of you may be asking "why did RuneServerAdmin cause the first three problems, isn't it used by servers only?"
To be honest, I don't know. I'm guessing it was just a bad compile. The problems mentioned only
manifest themselves if the client has installed RuneServerAdmin .5a, so the problem was actually
with that file, and not RuneServerAdmin.u included in the original 1.08 package.

If you still get "invisible" players after installing this patch, then it is most likely a German version problem.

Hello, the links to the Rune linux patchs are dead, could you refresh them? I'm working on a Lutris script to install Rune linux version easily, I need them to finalize my script. Thanks.
