TibiaME 2.0.5

TibaME was updated to version 2.0.5 several months ago.  I thought the small version number bump implied a minor change, but I guess I was wrong.  A post on the Tibia Forum lists the following not so minor changes:

  • The islands Ashmor and Vargos got a new paint and the graphics were revamped. While traveling on the islands you will come across lots of new quests to be solved.
  • Asmor revamped!  Also, we have added new monsters to Ashmor. You will now face nasty Liches, evil Acolytes and deathly Cult Tutors.
  • Besides that, we reworked the Hornig Quest. Just visit the new NPC Roy who is the successor of the former NPC Ray and give him your Demonic Artefact. By doing that you will receive a unique item; a new weapon depending on your vocation.
  • Vargos revamped! In addition, the difficulty of Vargos was raised from level 40 to level 48. Therefore, you have to be at least level 48 to get access to Vargos.
  • New boss monster fights were added as well. You can now fight a Cylcop, an Eye and a Dragon. You can face all those bosses on Vargos on a daily basis, including Hieronymus. And a new reward will be given if you finish the Hieronymus quest. In addition new monsters were added to Vargos.
  • Interface innovations! We have also improved the skill and spell descriptions. If you now look at a spell book or at the spell details in the shop, more information will be displayed: for example, the type of spell, the amount of damage, etc.
  • From now on, a look at one of your skills will show your current amount of skill points.
  • Now, you will be able to check when your next ReRolls will be added. The ReRoll menue in the Attributes and Skill dialogue will be accessable for you all the time even if you have no ReRolls left.
  • New graphics! A new graphical effect will be shown if you fail to cast a spell.
  • And last but not least, a new startscreen was added.

On my Motorola i776, Tibia takes a long time to update after you log in but runs pretty well after that. On the Motorola Rambler, the update takes just as long and then seems to lock up. I think it’s a key mapping issue. I tried both the classic Java version and the Motorola one and they both had the same problem. I’ve posted the classic non-Motorola version as that’s what the Tibia site’s download wizard recomends for both the iDEN Motorola’s, the Motorola WX400 Rambler  and other Boost phones like the Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito.

Keys (iDEN): the OK key is miss -mapped and soft keys don’t work. Use the Call key as the left soft key (OK, Yes, Menu); Use the OK key as the right soft key (No, Exit).

Type: Freeware with optional paid upgrades.
