Testing Stendhal is not only fun, it's also very important because it can solve problems before releases. If you find any problems or need help with testing please ask at #arianne. If you have found a bug, feel free to submit a report directly.

We have a dedicated test server on Port 32100. It is refreshed with new code and a new copy of the real database once a day. You can login with your normal account, if it is a least one day old.

You may need a test client. Please note that the test client will not update automatically. Just save the file, extract it into a new folder, then double click the stendhal-starter.jar.

Residual Issues from Previous Releases


  • New ConditionalStopAction class:
    • Used to stop player movement via keypress when client input loses focus to prevent uncontrolled walking: ef21dc6 : not ok (Antumdeluge: keypresses still not flushed; fix committed)
    • Character should continue walking if focus is lost only if other methods for movement are used:
      • Path is set using mouse click. : ok (AntumDeluge)
      • Auto-walk is active. : ok (AntumDeluge)
    • Fix for Player Continues Walking When Client Loses Focus
    • BUG: Using teleclickmode causes player to continue walking after teleport. : ok (AntumDeluge: fixed)


Some bugs to look for:

  • Do pets get stuck at any point, and Forget how to follow owners?
  • Do any items go to waste when they go to drink or eat them?

Tests Specific to the Next Release

You can use a 1.28 release client to logon to test server, but if you want to test the 1.28.5 client you can do so.

It is helpful to also use the test client to play on the main, release, server. Playing normally with the 1.28.5 client could help us uncover new client side bugs, so long as any bug reports make it clear which version of client you use and which server you are playing on.

Bug Fixes

  • Players continue walking if mouse click used to change zones while "continuous movement" is enabled. (fixed in commit 6442456) : please test
  • <NPC "maltos" not found> removes outfit_org attribute after winning balloon if player is wearing temp outfit/costume. (requires Mine Town Weeks to be active) : please test
  • Enemies never drop max amount of an item if min & max values are different. (fixed in commit 2b069c9) : please test

Client Fixes

  • If player is wearing a temporary outfit/costume, outfit dialog will now display original outfit when opened instead of naked character. : please test

A new stat has been implemented call RATK, or range attack. This stat now defines the strength of weapons & enemies that attack from a distance. Previously, to calculate range attack strength, the melee ATK stat was used.

(please keep an eye out for enemies or items that should be using RATK but may have been missed)

RATK: Items

These weapons now use the RATK stat in place of ATK. Strength values should not be different than in previous versions, so as not to change the difficulty of the game. However, players using ranged weapons will no longer have the same strength while using those weapons for close up melee attacks:

RATK: Enemies

These enemies now use RATK to calculate their ranged attack strength instead of ATK. ATK is used to calculate strength when enemy is next to target. Note that RATK is currently identical to ATK for all enemies so that difficulty does is not changed:

  • When you do each stage, read your console log.
  • For quest testing: if you want to use an existing char, that has done most quests, you can reset all quests by saying cleanme! (with "!") to Diogenes. This only works for admins.
  • The test server log is here and can be useful to check if something strange happened (just scroll to the bottom for the latest entries)

Create chat log for tests

Please try to play dumb and fool the NPC by asking stupid question which may confuse him. For example say that you already have the items you are supposed to fetch although this is not true, yet. Reject the quest first time and only return later to accept it. Try to ask to start the quest again once it has finished, this kind of thing.

Please say Bye when you want to finish the conversation if the NPC is still listening.

We need full chat dialog for these quests:

  • FishermansLicenseQuiz from the fisherman in Ados huts
  • Meet Io
  • Getting a maze from Haizen chatlog needed: solving maze, chatlog there for: player logs off while doing it
  • Meet Zynn Iwuhos
  • Dice Gambling with Ricardo Junit test needs creation still
  • FindJefsMom
  • KillMonks
  • CleanAthorUnderground
  • WaterForXiphin (Patches tracker ID: 3520164)

  • CoalForHunchey
