The Promised Video

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

I was finally able to make the video for you explaining my solution to the issue where blog paragraphs are not spacing correctly. Read the old post here and watch the video via Viddler below!

Hello Kitty Online Screenshots!

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

As promised, the few screenshots I took from the Hello Kitty Online open beta!





My spider pet, Itsy Bitsy.





My favourite Sanrio character, Mimmy, was the first NPC I got to meet. =)





My boar pet, Piggy.





Pinkuruchan, who I am not very familiar with, but I think she is very cute and pretty. =^_^=





My pet armadillo, Antony, and I.





Picture of my character from my character sheet towards the end of the beta. Crazy clothing, hm? =P





Character sheet from early game play.





One of the first quests - collecting shamrocks. It took me a while to figure out that I had to collect them from the bunches showing in the picture and not the bunch that only looked like 1 lone shamrock. >.>





GM-Abby. <3 (Read her blog here.)





GM Miyaw and I. (Read Miyaw’s blog here.)





Hello Kitty and Mimmy’s mum is named Mary, just like my mum! =^_^=





A rat. I eventually got one of these as a pet, but I don’t remember what I named it. I think I named him Squeek.





A starfish. I also had one of these as a pet and I think I named it Sunshine.





My favourite fauna design in the game, a bush.


I would still really like to draw my character and her pets, so look for that some time later on!

New Installer and Patch Now Available for Download!

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Exciting news from the Hello Kitty Online Game MMORPG blog!

Monday, February 9th, 2009 at 9:08 pm, Hello Kitty Online Game MMORPG

The official Hello Kitty Online Download Center is now up and running, so Founders and other Sanriotown members can now start downloading! Simply follow the instructions on the page, and you will be one step closer to our Valentine’s event “Happy Hearts“!

Remember, if you are a Founder and have the Christmas Reunion version of HKO (version 0.7.16.0 or higher), then you may simply run your auto-updater and let it do the downloading for you. However, using the auto-updater may take longer, so we recommend that you download the manual patch instead.

If you are a new to Hello Kitty Online or have deleted your
Christmas Reunion version, you may download the latest full installer,
which will have all the new enhancements for you to enjoy. On the other
hand, if you have an older version of HKO (older than version 0.7.16.0) then please uninstall your current version first and download the game again from our Download Center.

HKO will open its doors to Founders on February 12, 2009 at 22:00 EST, and the rest of Sanriotown can join the fun on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2009 at 20:00 EST.

Note:
Sanriotown users in Europe will not be eligible to participate in Hello
Kitty Online at this time. However, HKO will soon be available to fans
in Europe as well, free of charge. We are sorry for this inconvenience
and we thank you for your patience. All HKO Founders from all countries
are automatically eligible to play HKO and join the Happy Hearts event.

Happy Hearts is just around the corner, so hurry and don’t miss out!
If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to email us at onlinegame@hellokitty.com. See you soon!
