This addon doesn't need any updates for the 1.5 release, but I figured I'd take the opportunity of a new locked class to add some Frequently Asked Questions that I can link back to:Hey, the character creation dialog still says I have locked races/classes! What gives?
Well… yes. As the description says, this addon doesn't actually unlock anything; it just bypasses the code that checks locks for races and classes.Will this prevent me from unlocking things?
Races and classes can be unlocked in the usual manner while this addon is active. The author, for instance, had the pleasure of unlocking Mindslayers with
a Mindslayer. The latest version of the game has a new locked race/class. Will I need a new version of this addon to access it?
Probably not. As long as the new locked race or class uses the standard locking code that this addon bypasses, it should be made available by this addon with no changes needed. (This doesn't include donator-only classes, which this addon cannot unlock and wouldn't if it could). If it does happen that some future race or class is locked using some non-standard locking mechanism not bypassed by this addon, here would be a good place to report it as a bug. What the heck is this Runic Golem thing?
Apparently it's an experimental race from an early beta version that was abandoned but not removed from the code, simply locked. Since it uses the standard locking system, this addon incidentally makes it available; we do not consider it worth the effort to go to special effort to prevent this from happening. The race implementation is, of course, extremely old and unlikely to work, so proceed at your own risk.
