Added new updaters with special tsalem.jar files under "Installation" in the first post.
If you are running a Mac or you are otherwise forced to have a java version lower than 1.7, this is for you! :-)

Changed the tstarter.bat in a way that seems to work better.
If you happened to get a "Connection refused: connect" error, this fix is for you! ;)
(passing the URLs now as argument to the method rather than -D, thanks to Chrumps for pointing that out!)

If anyone of you is still unable to start it for whatever reason or with whatever error message,
please PM me or talk to me ingame (HS: taipionshop) so I can fix it, thank you!

Feature Spotlight: Mining Helper

The idea for this was actually meant for a plugin, but due to how and what you can do with a plugin and with the client itself,
I decided to also take this into the client, as it was much better when done there.

So what does it do:
It helps you keep the mining-cusors!
That does not sound like much, but just look at what you do when mining normally:
- activate mining cursor
- left-click somewhere to mine
- right click once to de-activate the mining-cursor
- right click another time to drop the boulder you mined
- activate the mining cursor again
- ...
Now what if you could mine with just 2 clicks instead of all that?
Well, now you can! ;)

How to control:
In the console, type ":mining" to switch mining modes between default-mode/fast-mode/off,
or type ":mining off" to deactivate it directly.
By default, it is active and in default-mode.

Left-Click (both modes):
Usually, you can't move with a left-click while the mining-cursor is active, well, usually. ^^
- with any mining helper mode active, you can actually move with a left-click on any non-mine-able-tiles as if you had no mining-cursor (!)
- works with tile centering, too

Right-Click (default mode):
- in default mode, one right-click actually does 2 right-clicks
- first right-click discards the mining-cursor
- second right-click drops the boulder you carry (if you carry one), if you clicked on the ground and not on an object (like yourself)
- if your char moves (dropping the boulder is a movement even if you dropped it right at your feet), the mining-cursor is re-activated
- works with tile centering, too
With this you can drop your boulder wherever you want, with 1 click instead of 2, and without the need to re-activate the mining-cursor yourself.

Right-Click (fast mode):
A right-click in fast-mode drops the boulder right at your feet and re-activates the mining-cursor for you.
This is done by:
- your original right-click discarding the mining-cursor
- adding a 2nd right-click to the one you did, just at your feet, to drop the boulder right there
- then re-activates the mining cursor for you

Note about Tile-Centering:
As some people don't know it, tile-centering (CTRL-Z) is an awesome help when mining, to perfectly place your char and then the boulders you mine,
if you have never used it while mining, I highly recommend you at least try it.

But how do I get rid of the mining-cursor now?!
Easy. ^^
- if you have fast-mode on, simply switch to another cursor by activating ..."lift" or anything, or de-activate it or switch to default-mode and then discard it
- in default-mode, simply right-click yourself or any object where the right-click does not trigger your char moving, or just switch to another cursor

I might add a checkbox in the options for this feature someday, but as of now I do not feel that is necessary at all.
If you do not know how to "open" the console, click on "system chat" in your chat window and then type ":",
you can also type ":help" for this and some other features.

With these, you can actually 2-click-mine long tunnels, or just move around freely and place your boulders with one click instead of two and without ever having to re-activate the mining-cursor yourself!
If you're a hardcore miner, I guess you will just love this.
And if you've ever mined in Salem, you'd probably want to try it again with this, just to know how good it feels. :-)
