XANA APP

Key Highlights:

Our team has pinpointed the cause and is currently optimizing our systems to ensure that your journey into the world of NFTs is as seamless as it is exhilarating.
  2. Controller Responsiveness: A smooth and intuitive control mechanism is vital for an immersive metaverse experience. We’ve identified an issue where the controller gets stuck, disrupting your exploration. Rest assured; this is now a top-priority fix on our development roadmap.
  3. NPC Dynamics: The vibrancy of the XANA world owes much to our NPCs, especially in environments like the classroom lobby. We’ve noticed that some NPCs have been less mobile than intended, staying in one place. Our team is on the case, implementing solutions to bring back the dynamic interactions you love.
  4. Store Asset Availability: Your creativity and customization in XANA are fueled by assets from our store. It’s come to our attention that certain assets aren’t functioning as they should. We’re conducting a thorough review to ensure all assets work correctly, enhancing your ability to personalize your experience.
  5. Guest User Navigation: We strive to make XANA accessible and welcoming for everyone, including guest users. The screen redirect issue some of you have encountered is being addressed with the aim of making navigation smooth and intuitive for all visitors.
  6. Background Music Customization (PMY): Recognizing the powerful impact of music on the metaverse experience, we’re excited to announce upcoming enhancements that allow for personalized background music in both lobbies and rooms.

  7. Enhanced Post Loading (PMY): We understand that every second counts in the world of XANA. To ensure you spend more time enjoying and less time waiting, our team is optimizing the post-loading process. This update aims to significantly reduce wait times, making your transitions within the metaverse smoother and more enjoyable. Whether exploring new territories, engaging with the community, or showcasing your latest NFT acquisitions, you can look forward to a more fluid XANA experience.
