The Downlord Client Project
To provide an alternative to the official Client, originally made in 2012 with the programming language Python, the player Downlord started working on a Java-based client on 26th March 2015. The project is now supported by several other developers and aims to make the client more user-friendly and performing.
Differences to the official Client
Although both clients support all official functions of FAF, there are some differences on how they do that:
- The general layout and design is a lot more "modern" in Downlord Client
- Downlord Client has one tab dedicated to all "vaults" - you will be able to find maps, mods as well as online/local/live replays there with a lot of helpful filters and search options.
- Downlord Client has notifications telling you when
- a friend comes online
- a friend joins a game
- you receive a message
