Fix The server does not consider your character in-game until the client has finished entering the game and confirms to the server he is ready to play.

Fix Reduced duration of black screen after loading.

Fix When starting the game for the first time, while waiting to select a PC, music decompression delays could cause a disconnect from the server and create an "infinite" delay (i.e. "Please Wait" forever).

Fix Some bridge graphics problems have been resolved (where the railings were no longer visible).

Fix At character creation, the chosen name is checked immediately to see if it is taken (before, you had to answer several questions before being told that).

Fix When pressing F1 to get the help menu, the cursor and the palette were messed up.

Fix Rapid clicking on doors caused them to open and close too fast. You can no longer close doors. The server closes them automatically after 10 seconds.

Fix Keys now have charges (limited number of uses). Message "Your <item name> crumbles to dust" is displayed when the item "vanishes" from the backpack (i.e. when charges are all used up).

Fix Some NPCS (Halam, Iroual Knowall and Thorbin Wildheart) now respond to keyword "karma" and give you a general indication of your karma attribute.

Fix With 65,000 colors capabilities, menus can now have their own brightness that doesn't affect the surroundings (prior to this, opening a menu in a cave would light up the whole area).

Fix File security.chk no longer necessary (or present) in T4C client directory (made useless with WebPatch feature).

Bug Alt-tab disabled (Windows problems prevent its complete & successful implementation).

Bug When equipping an item that boosts a skill, the skill box pops up. This is a temporary glitch that will remain until at least v1.08.

Bug On WinNT, after installing, patching and finally entering the game, it could happen that there was no text in the main menu. Rebooting will fix the problem.
