  • The Game

    Released in late October 2000, RUNE 1.00 is a third-person perspective game of intense action and adventure steeped in a blend of Norse mythology and high fantasy. Players will have to use their brains as well as their massive brawn to survive as they explore the fully 3D game world fighting off fantastic creatures from both Norse legend and the fertile minds of the Human Head staff with their array of swords, axes and magical devices.

    The game focuses on equal parts melee combat and exploration, with levels ranging from a Viking town to the caverns of the Dwarves to a city in the mountains. Players will have access to a wide array of melee weapons based both in fact and fantasy as Ragnar delves deeper into the realms of myth and further from his old reality.

    Seven months after RUNE's release, Human Head Studios released "Rune: Halls of Valhalla 1.06" Multiplayer Expansion Pack in May 2001. This MP only "standalone" contained several totally new skins, new MP gameplay ("Arena" and "Headball", new maps, meshes and more.

    During this time, Westlake was contracted to make a Mac version of RUNE and RuneHOV. At the same time Loki Productions made a LINUX version. Later the PS2 Console version, "Rune:Viking Warlord", was developed with some additions not found in the PC/Mac versions and some levels were made by Tod McFarlane of SPAWN fame.

    In October 2001, RuneGold was released containing both Retail RUNE v1.07 and Rune: Halls of Valhalla 1.06 in a 2 CD jewel case.

    After RUNE 1.00 came out, Human Head Studios released three Official Patches(1.01, 1.06, 1.07) for it alone and one (HOV 1.07) for Rune: Halls of Valhalla MP "standalone". The 1.06 and 1.07 Patches allowed RUNE 1.00/1.01 MP players to enter HOV 1.06/1.07 MP servers but these made too many changes to allow a Rune 1.00 to 107 player to return to 1.00/1.01 MP servers. You would have to rename your RUNE 1.06/1.07 folder, make a shortcut and reinstall Rune 1.00 to play "Old Skool" MP again.

    There has been an ongoing community made "Rune 1.09 Project" to attempt to reverse this, by Frozn and his team. Parts of this have been released as "Beta" through Rune Library.com. Although dormant at this time, it is our sincerest wish one day this community modding project will be finished.

    In the meantime, other large (or smaller) patches have been made by community modding teams or by individuals. More can be found through Rune Clan websites or the maker's websites and/or blogs.

    Patches

    Zisu's Rune:Halls of Valhalla 1.08 Patch by Zisu's WGW Projects Division Team
    Human Head Studios did help were needed. They also Fully Authorized and Endorse this project!

    Zisu's RUNE: Halls of Valhalla Patch Version 1.08 (30mb) | 9/6/05
    This program will update your version of Halls of Valhalla from 1.06/1.07 to 1.08. This patch is fully compatible with previous patches Please note that this update is for the Halls of Valhalla expansion ONLY, and not for the retail version of RUNE. You must have Halls of Valhalla installed on your system before running this upgrade. Human Head Studios Fully Authorized and Endorses this new patch!

    Redirected downloads!
    Download redirection for Windows clients. When the client doesn't have all the packages that the server has defined, it needs to download them. Normally this is done by downloading from the gameserver, at a theorethical maximum rate of 20kB/s. This can dry out the servers upload band causing lag for the players. Download redirection makes clients download packages from the webserver. The packages are packed to zip format, thus effectively reducing the download size to apr. 1/3 of the original. Dowload speed is limited only by the connection between the client and the webserver. If the packages are in a good webserver and the client has a 1Mbps broadband connection, a 9MB map will probably be downloaded and installed in much less than a minute's time as opposed to the normal time of apr. 8 minutes

    - Compatibility: Patch is 1.07 (HoV) backwards compatible, 1.06/7 clients can join 1.08 servers and vice versa.
