New Developer Center - Suggestions Wanted!

Posted by wishfire Jun 01, 2012 at 21:08 UTC
Greetings!

Curse is happy to announce a brand new planned feature for our Curse Client -- The Developer Center. This will be a quick, easy way for any author to upload and manage their projects. To make this new feature the best it can be for our authors, we want all of your suggestions on what you'd love to have and appreciate!

With this new Developer Center, you'll be able to easily upload new projects and new versions, and see your project list. To top it all off, we're also creating a simple, intuitive wizard to make everything fast and effortless!

Any and all suggestions or thoughts can be sent to [email protected], or leave a comment here -- Our developers will be checking both regularly!

Posted by wishfire Jun 21, 2012 at 21:39 UTC

Curse is excited to announce the release of the lastest version of our Client, v5!  This release not only overhauls the UI, but also adds in some great new features!

New features in version 5 include:

    • For more information on Minecraft texture packs, see the Minecraft wiki article.
  • Completely brand new, overhauled UI
    • Each game has it's own section for downloads and currently-installed content.  Simply click the tabs to switch between what is currently installed, and what is available for download.
    • All downloads for any game will show up in the Downloads section on the left panel.
  • Ability to reorder games via drag and drop
  • Curse resource links available on each game's tab
  • New "play" button -- launching games now even more hassle-free
 
To check out all this brand new Client experience has to offer with v5, simply download the new Client here.  You'll be updated to the latest version, and ready to go!
 
Note: these changes only affect the PC client. For updates on the Mac Client, go to our dedicated Mac Client CurseForge page.

World of Tanks and The Secret World Now Fully Supported in the Client!

Posted by wishfire Aug 01, 2012 at 20:17 UTC

The Curse Client now has two brand new features -- The Secret World and World of Tanks are now supported, and they come with an easy to use packager for our authors!

We at Curse are always looking for ways to make modding games as simple as possible, and are always eager to support new games. Now, both World of Tanks and The Secret World give users the capability of one-click installations of mods, skins, and addons!

The Client will also manage backups and revisions of your old files to be safe to help ensure that your game will never need to be reinstalled.

In an effort to make placing these highly customizable mods into our Client, we've also created an in-Client packager to help our authors out! With either World of Tanks or The Secret World selected, click Tools -> Create a Package, and follow the given prompts. This wizard will walk you through making an appropriate, Client ready zip to be uploaded to CurseForge.

Thank you to all of our authors who assisted us in testing the Client, as your participation allowed us to release these brand new features quickly!

New Curse Client Update -- Minecraft Server Performance Tweaks and More!

Posted by wishfire Oct 04, 2012 at 23:44 UTC

A brand new update has been released for the Curse Client, including some important tweaks to the Minecraft Server Browser!  A full changelog can be found below, as changes to Rift have also been included.

Enhancements

  • You can now launch Minecraft from the Curse Client.
  • When you join a server, you can have the Curse Client minimize to the system tray automatically. See the Options dialog.

Bug Fixes

  • Performance tweaks made to the server browser.
  • When you install Rift addons, they will install the new location (In My Documents). The Curse Client will attempt to move your old addons to the new location automatically.
  • When you join a server, and no username and password is saved in the Minecraft launcher, it will now say 'EnterUsername'/'EnterPassword' instead of 'TEST'. 

As always, you can download our Curse Client v5 to manage your addons, texture packs, and mods for games like World of Warcraft, Minecraft, Rift, and World of Tanks by downloading it here!
