- Both DBO Taiwan
and DBO Hong Kong
have announced that they'll too be shutting down on October 31st, and with that, Dragon Ball Online is officially dead.
I'd like to thank everyone who helped make this site what it is, and to say that I don't have any plans to shut it down. I still plan on finishing a few new features I'd already started, now with the hope of preserving the history of the game, but I can't say when any of that will be ready.
for discussion on the TW servers closing, or here
for the HK servers.

- After roughly 3 and a half years of service, the Korean version will be closing its doors on September 26th. This comes after almost four months of no patches of any kind to the game.
The Taiwanese and Hong Kong versions of the game have been going through a similar lack of updates recently, but as of now there's been no indications that either of them will follow in the Korean version's path.
In January of this year, NTL posted an interview
saying that they were still hopeful for the future of the game, and were focusing on its release in the Chinese market. The Chinese version was originally scheduled to go into beta in the beginning of 2012, and even had an official teaser site. Unfortunately, that site
now seems to have been taken offline.
Discussion thread in the Korean version forum
: The person maintaining the Official DBO Hong Kong Facebook page
has addressed concerns that the HK version might be next in saying, "您好，香港紅心辣椒代理的是香港版《龍珠Online》，韓國版本與香港紅心辣椒無關，謝謝。" . Roughly translated, this means "no".

- This new version of the Language Patcher adds a few new features, and over 3,500 new translations.
With this new version, I'm broadening the scope of what the Language Patcher provides. In addition to providing translations, I'd like to attempt to fix certain client-side game bugs that have stuck around for a bit too long. For starters, this version of the patch will address a bug that players commonly exploit to crash each other's game clients. If anyone has any information on other bugs you think I should take a look at, send me a PM.
The Language Patcher now also has the ability to translate all of the in-game help files, and I've also provided support for translating the Language Patcher itself. Information on how to unlock these new features can be found here: http://dbocom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32447
I'd also like to thank everyone who's been submitting translations, most notably: AphraelFlute and Deception, who provided the vast majority of the new translations. I'd also like to thank Tempest, who played a major role in helping create the crash bug fix.

- The skill calculator
has been updated so that all of the information it presents is exactly what you'd see in-game. In addition, the calculator is also now available in Korean and Chinese.
I'd like to thank everyone who helped manually submit skill data in the past, most notably: silence, raditzroom, keredvin, maluriddle, Sogran, Internauta, and DavyJonesx. Going forward, the skill calculator is now in-sync with the game client, and will automatically update as the game updates.
These changes, however, were only made to the skill calculator. For the time being, the skill database will still show the old, sometimes inaccurate, data. If anyone comes across any problems when using skill calculator, please send me a PM.

- This version of the patch addresses an in-game crash that sometimes occurs when opening the crafting window. If your game is currently patched with a previous version of the Language Patcher, you'll need to unpatch using either the Game Launcher, or by manually downloading the tbl.pak and lang.pak files for your version.
You can download the new version, as well as the tbl and lang files, here: http://dbocom.com/tools/english-patch/
