  1. computer help :/

    Make sure you plugged in all necessary power cables from power supply block.
  2. not sure how to join

    Generally you won't be able to run official client with internal video card. If you are planning to play this game, you should consider buying normal video card with nVidia or ATI chip.
  3. At first I thought it makes no sense if you cannot access your slots in one storage from another (for example if you put red rose at Molgor, you cannot get it at Raven, etc). But then I realized that this is how RL things work, stuff must be carried somehow from one place to another. Now when we have mules, imagine long caravans carrying 100000 flowers from one storage to another. That certainly would be done for a fee.
  4. Quote of the week submissions

  5. problems connecting to server

    Try telnet game.eternal-lands.com 2000 You should see welcome message. If you don't then something blocks port 2000, and you should figure out what is it.
  6. The Cost of Mules

    Well. I think what people are trying to say, is not that you can't make profit by being mule, the point is that if you are not mule you get much more gc while harvesting (especially with titanium, as it takes more time to harvest it, than to carry to npc).
  7. #block_buddy

    Yes exactly. It really doesn't matter what sort of short-cuts one uses. It's still the difference between being automatically told someone logged on/off at the time it happened vs having to manually go check. The push vs pull information model. And that difference is significant to some people. Just for the record, it doesn't matter to me. But it does matter to others and simply saying "it's easy to look up" doesn't make it matter less. No problem to make it push-style: #!/bin/zsh buddies[1]="bkc56"; buddies[2]="molime"; for ((i=1;i<=${#buddies};i++)); do bstate[$i]="off"; done links2 -dump http://game.eternal-lands.com/online_players.htm >dump for ((i=1;i<=${#buddies};i++)); do if grep -q -w $buddies[$i] dump; then bstate[$i]="on"; echo "$buddies[$i] is online!"; fi; done; while :; do links2 -dump http://game.eternal-lands.com/online_players.htm >dump for ((i=1;i<=${#buddies};i++)); do if grep -q -w $buddies[$i] dump; then if [ $bstate[$i] = "off" ]; then bstate[$i]="on"; echo "$buddies[$i] comes online!"; # zenity --info --text="$buddies[$i] comes online!" # if you want windowed notifications # you can also use any other way of notifying you prefer fi; else if [ $bstate[$i] = "on" ]; then bstate[$i]="off"; echo "$buddies[$i] goes offline!";\ fi; fi; done; sleep 60; done NO WARRANTY! written in 5 mins, so may contain some bugs
  8. Already suggested and discussed: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=40894
  9. torches

    But there is still limit on number of lights (AFAIK). So it would look weird when many people with torches come close.
  10. Hyperspace Bag Spell

    Do you know, that there exist fiction books? And people continue write them and read them. Seems like they all should be burned according to your attitude.
  11. No, this is how it would end, if some mod doesn't pop up first and lock the thread: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=46870 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45463 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45141 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=44650 this list can be easily continued. Where do you see spam here? People do not continue to post, when they are given reference(s), unless they have something to add. If you really think, like you said, I afraid you deeply underestimate EL community.
  12. Yes, something like this can be found: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=23457 but here we come to another point. If last discussion of the matter was like two, three or four years ago, maybe it makes sense to bring it up again, if people are still interested in it. Game continues to change, new people join the game and arguments might be different this time.
  13. Looking at several last threads in this forum, like these: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=46800 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=47033 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=47052 and I guess much more, I can imagine how embarrassed topic-starters might feel. I tried to do some search and (even remembering former discussions), usually I could find only something like these: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=42726 http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=19990 or like these, without definite statement from authorized person: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22754 This is why I think it would be a matter of politeness to add this kind of rule: "Do not close topic with words: 'Already suggested' or 'Search!'" without giving at least one reference to previous discussion". If this rule is followed consistently, it will make some sort of 'threaded' tree, and will allow in few steps restore the history of discussion on a given topic.
  14. Graphical Error

    Looks like same thing as here: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=46926 But with different OS and graphical card vendor, so it is problem with EL, I surmise.
  15. n00bish c question ...

    Usually you do it this way: struct s; // declare structure struct s a; // declare variable of type struct s. Here you do not know what fields struct s has, and hence can't access them. struct s // definition of structure { ... } // Now you can access fields of struct s.
