L2j™ is an open-source development released free of charge. However, you must read and fully understand the license agreement before you download and use the software.
There are a couple of ways for you to get it. Which one is the best for you, it depends on your skills and needs:
Option 1. Download Stable L2j Releases
The easiest and simplest way to get L2j, it’s download our stable build, they are already compiled and ready to use.
Download the current L2j Stable zip files from our nightlies folder. Please consider using a download management software, specially if your internet connection speed or reliability are low. If you still don’t have one, we recommend you Free Download Manager.
Option 2. Stable Subversion Access
L2j source code repository is kept on Subversion (SVN) servers. If you keep in sync with our repositories rather than just downloading nightly builds, you’ll be able to stay up-to-date at any time, quickly revert locally made changes, etc.
