RT Dev Notes


for July 8th, 2021

The Dev Notes section will be appended to every Hardware Maintenance patch note to give players a look at our progress for next week's Update Maintenance. Look forward to what we have in store!


Currently Committed:
--- Guild Emblem system is updated to allow for animated GIF emblems
--- Current Guild Emblems are reset
--- Izlude Bullet Merchants are renewed
--- There is a change to the way memos are stored for classes with Warpportal skill. This caused an issue on RO1, but won't cause an issue on RT as we have already applied the fix.
Currently Testing
--- Melon Festival Leaves
--- Popcorn Festival Starts

As a note: With this update, some Third Job Skills are being updated. We are applying this to RT so that it can continue to receive EXE updates, but this is not expected to affect RT gameplay, so we do not consider it an update for RT. We do, however, wish to list it because there will be skill description changes for this in the patch.
