After shutting down the FOnline: 2238 Server, we have moved the database (as well as some other data) to a new place - forum!

Why such a forum? The FOnline scene always lacked a community website in English dedicated to its developers. Informations about SDK are scarce and scattered - we see it as an obstacle in achieving more interest into FOnline. That's why the former FOnline: 2238 devs decided to fill this gap by creating We would like it to become a place for all people focused on creative aspects of the FOnline engine - place where you can discuss developing games, share ideas, ask questions, publish and share your work with others and announce new FOnline projects. A friendly hub for English speaking developers.

If you were registered on the FOnline: 2238 forum you don't have to create a new account - you can use the same login and password.

Of course is not the only thing that we would like to attend to. We are still eager to create games. Currently, however, we have decided to focus on something slightly different than a game - creation of a new FOnline development kit with improved scripts and tools. Our aim is to get a better starting point for new projects. Only time will tell if we will be successful. This new endeavor is in very early stage and you can follow it on Github. It's developed as open source.

Speaking about open source... we have more news for you. To answer to many requests of the FOnline: 2238 fans, we have decided to release the source code of our game. We need to clean it up a bit and as soon as this work is done, everyone should be able to download the sources, start a FOnline: 2238 server or create their own projects based on it. This shouldn't take too long, so stay tuned!

Kind regards,
