Nintendo dropping 2DS price to $100 on August 30

I guess CL should be able to run on a 2DS? and that will lower the access threshold.

I guess the more difficult to adapt would be how a healer target and generally to start a macro or should it be buttons on the second screen? It would increase the cost but that can be done on a steam controller?

A port to some form of mobile device is a good idea IMO.

I've tried to make my own client but all the packets are heavily encrypted. I suspect that Sean gave Joe a lesson on encryption after making his clients back in the day.

But ya... my idea was to make a simple Linux client with no GUI that could chat, keep a healer alive and have my own (less restrictive) macros system. After having a word with the mods, this is precisely what they don't want, so such is life I guess. That said, I think it would have been a good pathway for building a simple GUI, and making a 'lite' mobile version where you could see the screen, move around using touch controls and type any necessary commands.

I've given up (the encryption is too tight and the mods don't want me doing it - so it's not much of a project). However, it would be great to see a mobile client one day.

A mobile version is something I've thought about before. I think there's a few issues with that, and they are kind of highlighted by that video of Arindal on an iPhone. Perhaps the biggest issue is that Clan Lord relies on communication between players, and that is largely by typing messages or macro commands. On a small screen with an on screen keyboard this is cumbersome. Movement is important too, and without a mouse, precise movement might not be easy to achieve on a mobile computer.

I think these issues could be worked around using UI, but it may not be enough.

Thought about how a UI would look. Needed some art-practice anyway.
