Re: Dead Ends

What about Wu Zhen - Sylvan outpost. "Wu Zhen gestures in a secret language"

Also very near by is the missing altar which Falye says someone should know how to make/find.

Re: Windows client is not ending cleanly

Yappy I've just confirmed that I can unpack the client DLL using UPX (command is upx -d) and the client still runs fine. The DLL is about 3x the size (1.8mb or so). Windows Defender does not try and delete the dll after it is unpacked. So I guess that means the DLL is packed simply to save some spac...

Re: Windows client is not ending cleanly

A possible answer to the problem of the dll being flagged or removed by AV is to ask the person building the windows version to stop using UPX during the release build. This should be easy to do, maybe doesn't even require code changes! Just removing a step from the build process. Anti-virus engines...

Re: v1042 discussion

I personally wouldn't want to play CL any longer if the storyline has officially ended, but there are a lot of people who still DO and those people are going to have the game shut down out from under them waiting for an "official answer" from Joe. Do we have a central place to read up on the story ...

Re: v1042 discussion

While I've been playing not even close to as long as most folks and am thankfully more or less free of 15-20+ years of uncomfortable baggage that comes with the word "soon", I would like to offer that the holidays have been holidaying. I could see some delay stemming from that. Beyond the holiday s...

Re: v1042 discussion

Didn't someone(Maz?) say they had a client that would run in a browser? That would save a lot of wackiness with updates and longevity one would think. That was me with the web client. More of a demonstration that it is possible rather than a finished product. That is to say /Pray OMG STOP SPAWNING ...

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

Ok, so this project only works if Joe gives the artwork away for free. Got it. Considering how much of it has been made by volunteers and how little Joe seems to care, it wouldn't be inappropriate. But what resolution is CL's art, anyway? Any attempt to use this art in a new game just isn't going t...

Re: v1042 discussion

The image file is openly available to anyone who really wants to look at it. Maybe it has spoilers, but I think any puzzles or areas are designed so that being able to view images in the image file won't make it any easier. I remember the old ore trick was a thing, never used it myself. Seeing into ...

Re: v1042 discussion

Well, not exactly ending just yet. Otherwise why fix the account portal? Not immediately, but they're talking about drawing it to a close so something needs to be done. One of the points Yappy regarding keeping CL going was the non-zero sum cost of keeping a server running. Are there volunteers to ...

Re: v1042 discussion

There had been literally 20 years worth of discussions about gameplay and so on it's pointless. Yes, but it's only now that we're being told CL is ending and that we have someone interested in financing/overseeing the development of CL2. Don't get me wrong: I'm not holding my breath for this to hap...

Re: v1042 discussion

If for some reason the game comes to an end, or even if it doesn't, is anyone interested in having their character(s) preserved in a manner like this on the rank tracker? Could make it possible to put a bit more info in there, customisable, or something. WARNING - 5mb or so. I don't recommend viewin...

Re: v1042 discussion

Sad to hear the news. Clan Lord is one of the first games I played as a young teenager and made my first friends in an online community. I have quite a few embarrassing memories here, but I also made some cool friends and have always felt this is one of the greatest communities I've ever been apart...
