Hybrasyl Server 0.6.0 ("Bruce")

Released: January 25, 2018 - View this release on GitHub


  • Full status support (poison, sleep, buff/debuff, etc) added
  • Castable support is now complete, with the notable exception of scripted castables
  • Loot tables / loot sets implemented
  • NPCs now support learning/forgetting skills/spells, selling/buying items, and sending/receiving parcels

  • Many, many, many XSD/XML updates
  • Fix packet throttling implementation

  • Add support for heal/damage modifiers, reflect chance / intensity, element overrides (offensive/defensive)
  • Monsters now support a rudimentary AI for moving and attacking
  • Improved chat command support with a rudimentary plugin architecture. Also, /help now works!
  • Begin to add support for multithreaded game logic / packet handling (controlmessages only, currently)
  • Add a secondary HTTP listener for API calls for service requests (shutdown/restart server, etc)

Bug Fixes

  • All extant network bugs should be fixed - assail not working, desynched sounds, etc
  • When a significant number of monsters die simultaneously (>15) on a crowded map, a burst of server-wide lag could occur


  • For ease of maintenance and use, the XML/XSD code has been integrated back into the main solution
  • Refactor how packet handling is done with flags and player conditions
  • Hybrasyl now targets 64-bit .NET 4.7
  • Death handling now uses XML config values as opposed to relying on any hardcoded configuration
  • Added a lot more packets to the new packet structure

Hybrasyl Server 0.5.5 ("Devlin")

Released: December 20, 2016 - View this release on GitHub


  • Spell targeting implemented
  • Cast lines for castables supported
  • Creatures and players can now die and have OnDeath events
  • Basic player status support (such as poison, sleep, etc) implemented
  • Monster spawning support implemented (regularly spawning new creatures in an area, using spawngroups)
  • Castable support is mostly implemented; 0.5.6 will complete the implementation (NPC learning / forgetting skills, proper directional usage, etc)
  • Skills and spells are now movable on the client pane
  • Use skill / use spell handlers implemented

Bug Fixes

  • National support for spawn locations fixed / updated
  • Two-handed equipment should now properly prevent a shield from being equipped
  • Two-handed flags on items should work as expected
  • Items allowing negative stats / HP / MP now fixed
  • Assail now properly uses the sound from the first assail in your list

Known Issues

  • Server socket state can sometimes get a little wonky which can require a restart. We're working on it.
  • Client sometimes cannot login again after logging off.
  • Packet throttling is disabled pending reimplementation. This means you can spam attack things at the moment, and also is related to the socket state issues.

Required SDK Version: at least

Hybrasyl Server 0.5.2 ("Dar")

Released: June 6, 2016 - View this release on GitHub


  • Implement usage support for items. Items now respect their XML definitions for usage. For instance:
<use consumed="true">
<teleport x="3" y="3">Test Village</teleport>
<playereffect mp="50" hp="50" xp="50" gold="50"/>
<effect id="3" speed="1"/>
<soundeffect id="6"/>

Any of these use cases can be combined with one another, opening up a lot of possibilities for item scripting.

  • General concept of healing (increasing player/creature HP) implemented.
  • Python API scripting now supports damage/healing/etc.
  • Legend marks implemented, along with Python scripting API that can be used by in-game scripts to manage marks.
  • Example NPC script added, to help users who wish to learn more about the Python scripting API. Documentation is coming - we promise.


  • Item quantities are now appropriately displayed in the exchange window.
  • Level and experience overflows corrected, maximum level is now set as a compile-time constant (Constants.MAX_LEVEL) and defaults to 99.
  • Item bonuses (AC, magic resistance, etc) are now correctly recalculated at login (thanks to @woghks123 for reporting this issue).
  • README updated.

Hybrasyl Server 0.5.1

Released: May 30, 2016 - View this release on GitHub


  • Sample XML data updated.
  • Documentation updates.
  • Added support for server (Aisling) time.


  • Bug fixed where the server would write out incorrect XML, causing the login/world port to be the same.

Hybrasyl Server 0.5.0 ("Riona")

Released: May 23, 2016 - View this release on GitHub


  • Redis is now a requirement, and is used for storing state data such as users, board posts, and mailboxes.
  • All world data is now read in from XML files. A new integration library (called, appropriately, SDK) has been created to manage the parsing, validation and writing of XML files.
  • As a result of the above, the server no longer uses MySQL, and all references / dependencies for it have been removed.
  • Thanks to Michael Norris (@norrismiv), we now have a new launcher, which displays news and should support a lot of new features in the future.
  • Several item, item display and exchange bugs fixed.
  • Experience implemented in a real way (with leveling support).
  • Nation support (citizenship) implemented, along with logging in to expected spawn locations (national spawnpoints).
  • Character info panel now functions as expected.
  • Mailbox / forums fully implemented.
  • Grouping support implemented.
  • Unique / unique equip item flags, negative weight, master restrictions implemented.
  • Networking stack completely reimplemented using async sockets with separate send/receive threads.
  • Beginning of skill/spell implementation - /skill will give your character a skill. Still a lot to be done here.
  • Assail / spacebar support for assail implemented.
  • The beginning of spawning support has been implemented. Unfortunately, at the moment, this simply means that wolves and bees have infested Mileth.


  • Poor, long-suffering Riona in Mileth, critically wounded in a prior release, will now respond to Aislings again. x
You can’t perform that action at this time.
