Why would the server for a game made in 1998 use server technology that didn't exist until 2009?
Pretty sure he was talking about the dickering around with new HTML5 client and using Node with it. I did the same double take.

"The Loremasters are beginning to step into the light."

I'd get excited, but, all things considered, I'm not sure it's worth getting excited over. Kind of sounds ominous. Like end of times coming to... record the end.

Re: v1042 discussion

That's why someone suggested running virtual OS environments in which CL could still work without need of updates. It's just a matter of someone who knows how writing an easy to follow guide. If I'm not mistaken (though I usually am) running in virtual environment is not ideal at this point because...

Re: v1042 discussion

I figured as much, and my guess is that having folks find CL a new server is probably going to be what he'd suggest. And this I don't understand. They're just using Rackspace in Dallas either as a colo or more likely a VPS slice. Hosting/serving CL seems like the least of the worries as far as thin...

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

After reading more and more about Arindal... you want CL2 just get the Arindal code and massage that into CL2. Sure you'd still need to update the client for modern OS etc., but you have a different foundation, but a familiar feel. Reading about Mage crystals, healers located fallens, different econ...

I think Pengy is specifically talking about seeing into the image/sound files and or into the world's map/layout.
I can't be the only one that remembers the day when you could replace "iron ore" with like "red dot" and hunt the greymyr passes. :shock:

Re: v1042 discussion

1/ Peering behind the scenes will make it impossible for info not to escape to players, even those who might not want to know stuff. Once you know that info you can't really play the same way again. It only takes one person in a group to change the dynamic. So basically you're saying there isn't a ...

Re: Fix Untrainus Duvin Hole?

We talked about this in game a bit. It's not "fixed" to my way of thinking because even though you retain your "movements" post-untrain you have to re-train the appropriate amount of Duvin again to get those very same movements back in order to study new critters. And I've heard of some people retai...

Fix Untrainus Duvin Hole?

Could I humbly request that the Untrainus Duvin hole/deficit be fixed? I have multiple characters now that have this Duvin hole including one that I'm building around a very specific morph, but will have to train like 100+ Duvin again just got get to a net zero Duvin coun again. Ugh. Is RangerGM sti...

Re: v1042 discussion

I still vote Open Sourcing the entire game, to make it easier for the community to add features, fix bugs, add new content etc. I love this idea also, but, and I have really no clue, how do you obfuscate the delicate bits so that I couldn't just give myself 100,000 ranks? I sincerely think I could ...

2nd Portal or Precise Cloud Movement

What with the end of days coming and all the contention of the stupid portal can't we just: a) Have two portals finally? I realize there are intricate forces at work so maybe just the existing portal and a darn mirror to CD or Village? b) How about some precise snell level cloud control already. It'...

Has anyone read the Valve Handbook?

Re: v1042 discussion

People have been saying that CL is dying since beta. And now they're right, though. But it's hella easier to fix the portal, modernize the CL1 client and possibly inject some sort of new story driven life into it than to create a CL2. With such a saturation of games already... why bother? Keep the ...

Re: v1042 discussion

It just needs to be updated for the modern market and that is ABSOLUTELY doable. Do you really think anyone in the current generation is willing to dedicate to a game for years let alone decades? I'm honestly not sure of the viability of CL2 without making it whizz-bang, 10 second satisfaction, etc...
