    Hello and thank you for the translation,

    Can you elaborate on:

    You can now right click or left click while your character is knocked down to get up quicker.

    I see someone saying that it's the same as previous key combinations to get up "quicker" but another saying that it's newly implemented.

    Thank you in advance! Great work as always.

      Hi! When you got knocked down, you could get up quickly by rolling while pressing WASD keys. On the other hand, you could still get up on the spot without pressing any keys but it would take some time for you to stand up.

      The right/left click key combination added this time lets you get up quicker on the spot when you are knocked down. You could see it as a different key combination from the original rolling key combination. Hope this helped!
