Xlurp has made some major updates to the code, and now harvesting as well as mixing now work. However, gaining xp for doing anything is still broken, and using items is broken.

It's a fairly simple and painless process. First, in the EL install directory, find the file named "servers.lst" and open it in a text editor (like Notepad). You should be presented with someone that look something like this:

ef       ef      3000   Eternal Fights
where is the IP of the machine you have the server running on to the bottom.

(If you never intend to play on the main server, you can just edit where the "main" server points to and ignore the rest of this)

Finally, create a shortcut on your desktop and right click on it to open up the properties menu. Add ef to the end of the target line. It should end up looking like this:

That's all great... but where is the client? You can either download the compiled version here:

Or here is a guide on how to get the source:
Linux: (I'm assuming that if you can figure out how to use linux, you can download this yourself)

Guide to downloading the source

First you will need to have a SVN program. I recommend TortoiseSVN. I have had a lot of good luck with it and find it easy to use. This guide will assume that you are using that.

After installing Tortouse select the directory that you want to download the source to. It is best if this is an empty directory. Right click on the directory and select "SVN Checkout"

Then enter the website where you will be pulling the source from.

Primary site:
Backup site: (incase you can't download from sourceforge)

From there open it into a java compiler (it was programmed in netbeans, but does work in Eclipse).

You can also download the .rar file from But the chances are you will be missing a lot of updates to the code.

There are no compiled versions of the source available. Sorry, the code just needs too much work for that.

Here are updates I've made to the SVN that may not be available in the sourceforge zip file. When they are fully updated, I will make note of it.

XP chart - I have re-done the XP chart to make it more closely match that of the official server. (Which is great, but you really can't get xp yet.)

Q: Aren't you just stealing your name from another server that went down?
A: No. was the same project, but the website went down, and now that it's back up, it has no forums. So I moved it.

Q: What language is this programmed in?
A: Java.

Q: Do you run a server I can connect to?
A: No. Unfortunately I cannot afford to run a server on my own. As we grow in popularity, I'm certain there will be users who run their own server.

Q: What is the purpose of this server? Eternal-Lands is a free game.
A: Yes it is. But there are some people who like the idea of their own personal server for the game.

Q: What are your plans for this server?
A: Well, I hope to mimic the main server with a few differences. (No bad harvesting events, harvesting events don't stop harvesting, no astrology, no weapons breaking, and always having infinite resources)

Q: What benefits would this have if it just mimics main?
A: Well, other than the differences I stated, you will be able to make your own maps and put ingredients quite close together for easier mixing and leveling. Not to mention you can have a lot of fun with friends if you just want to play with a select few. ^.^

1. Be sure that your question hasn't been answered before. Our forums DO have a search function if you are unsure.

2. NO pornographic links/content or ultra-violent links/content. This includes posting links that blatant link to this type of material. The posting of this will earn you a ban, no questions asked.

3. Stay on topic and in the proper forum. There's a forum for everything. If you aren't sure where to post do it in "general", this is so people know where to look for a similar issue and to keep our admins from getting confused. (If it is in the wrong section it WILL be moved.)

4. When making a post, particularly in the role playing sections, type out all of your words. Posts containing sentences such as, "OMG u r god" may be deleted at our discretion. They are annoying to read and there is no need for "text talk" in a forum, since there is neither a need to be super fast (typing out the vowels doesn't take that much longer) or conserve space.

5. Punctuate your sentences. This does not mean we expect every comma to be in the right place. What this means is that we expect a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence and a period at the end. Posts that contain paragraphs such as "i saw a cat and it was big oh and there was a house i ate how are you im doing fine" may be deleted at our discretion. (this, of course does not apply when posting code)

6. If you have a problem with another player, don't air your dirty laundry here...let an admin know about it privately.

7. No threatening of people, PERIOD. It will not be tolerated. If you can't take the fact that someone doesn't agree with you, click the link that says "Logout" followed by the little x in the upper right corner of the window.

8. Do not post just for the sake of posting. One word posts like "cool" that do not add anything of value to the topic may be deleted. If it is done too many times you will get banned. Similarly, posts that are one word that are of value, such as "works" are fine.

9. No solicitation here. We will not tolerate people trying to sell things in our forums. You will be banned, and possibly reported to the proper authorities. Once we get more established, however, we will have a location for advertizing your private servers based on the Eternal-Fights code.
