A new beta version of The Endless Forest is available through the Streaming Client. You'll need the newest Streaming Client to see everything ( 3.08 ).

No pictures, please.
Please don't post any screenshots of this test version!
Things are not completely final yet, we don't want unfinished pictures to spread around.

Version 3.2 of The Endless Forest contains a bunch of new Pelts and Masks and Antlers that you will need when Mardi Gras comes around. All of these were modeled and textured under our direction by students at the Howest college here in Belgium, based on designs created by you, the players, and posted here. More details about this later, when we release version 3.2 officially (on Monday, if all goes well).

Another new feature that many may appreciate is hotkeys. You can map any of the function keys on your keyboard (from F1 to F12) to actions performed by your deer. Simply put your cursor over an action button on screen and press the function key you want to map the action to. As of then, pressing that key will make your deer perform the action.
This only works for actions that do not require interaction (all the blue and all the orange buttons plus jump, listen and roar).

Have fun!
And let us know if you experience any problems.

Last time an update happened, I did not have my computer because something had happened to the charger. Last Monday, my puppy chewed through my laptop's charger.

Is there a conspiracy here? Shocked

My uncle and father are certain that The Endless Forest is giving my computer viruses and making it not start up sometimes (something to do with too many people accessing my computer all at once), so I have been banned to see if the problem still happens while I'm not playing it. They don't believe me, I know it isn't the game. ;-;

I may end up sneaking on at some point and hoping nothing happens... Embarassed

the pelts, masks and antlers are wonderful. great artwork!
it is running slow on my computer so i can't look at any more of them for today, i'll just have to wait for monday Very Happy

the only thing i've noticed is that one mask that i was given just set it back to the defualt mask. is there a mask missing so it's just coming up with default?
