  1. Android client, version 1.0.1

    Just for kicks, I paired my bluetooth mouse to my Fire tablet. It works fine for left clicking on everything in EL. Tried to right-click on the places where there are right-click options and none of them responded at all. Unlike Hussam's experience, nothing at all happened. I don't know if the right-click menus have been removed from the Android version, or if there is some limitation to Bluetooth mouse right-clicking in general in Fire OS. If you want further investigation of this, let me know.
  2. New shop item - astro shifter

    I like this. It would be nice if my best astro wasn't always when I'm sleeping
  3. Pr0 suggestion, Vanyel. I'll have to keep stealing the rostos from your sto though.
  4. server box

    I've always had a Server box/tab. Try: 1) Click on the channel you want for the default channel; 2) Click on the View All box/tab To check if things are set up the way you wanted, type #ci. This should show the (up to 3) channels you are in, and which is the default. I hope that solves your problem.
  5. Sir_Odie where are you?

    Yes. He is rarely online in EL, but you can reach him with a forum PM here.
  6. Android client, 6th release

    I don't know if you plan to change anything in the current Inv window, but... due to the current sizing, the equipment slots are very small. I wonder if it would make sense to take those five buttons on the right side and arrange them below the equipment slots. You could then make the equipment slots a bit bigger, and add a 6th button for 'Mix All'.

  9. Android client, 5th release

    Just a FYI. The easy way to get rid of it is by tapping the Options button, just as you did to open the screen.
  10. Android client, 4th release

    On changes from last 2 releases: 1) "Made the bottom icons smaller again, but now there is some slack space between them (implemented by Bluap)" Now they display perfectly on my 5-yr-old tiny phone screen, with a small gap between Options and the compass. On a larger 5.2" phone, the gap is an inch or so. And on the tablets, larger yet. The new spacing between icons makes it somewhat easier to select the right one, although it's still pretty awkward on the phones. 2) "Removed a few icons that don't make much sense on small screens" One other icon that perhaps could be removed (so that they could be returned to the larger, v3 size) is the 'sword' icon. Someone else may have some use for it, but I have never (on PC or Android) had a problem attacking anything attackable with the 'walk' cursor enabled. 3) "New, high res font" Very nice font. It looks nicer when scaling up also, on all my devices. Can make names readable now on 1080 x 1920 pixel phone, if I set "Names" to a an 80% size increase.. 4) "Fixed (at least on my tablet) the problem where if you pressed the power off button during the game the screen would go black. It needs more testing though." This happened on at least 2 of my devices, and is fixed here now also. As long as Data & WiFi are turned on, I can bring the game up from the inactive app screen, and it automatically reconnects properly. And it does not automatically disconnect from the server when inactive to read an email or check battery briefly. 5) "Now it should work on Android 4.0.x as well" It works fine on both of my Android 4.0.4 devices (phone & tablet) 6) "Char creation works now (but still needs a few improvements)" Created 3 chars without incident. Eye color is difficult to determine on small devices. 7) "You can scroll through the console text with the finger" Yes, but the the highlighting function in console makes it work erratically. Would it be possible to either remove highlighting althogether, or make it something one could turn off and on? It would make scrolling through console much easier. 8) "In the console window, swipe left to bring the keyboard, right to dismiss it" This works fine in 3 devices. On the old, smaller phone, it works only sometimes. I have to swipe left 4 to 10 times to get the keybooard to come up. I haven't found a pattern to it yet. 9) "The settings menu now works. I cleaned it up, removed irrelevant things, and it is also scrollable with the finger." Yes. I tested many of the settings and all seemed to work as expected, including scrolling. One that I'd like to see you put back in is the Gamma adjustment. I was boosting this setting in the Android client before it was removed. During EL night, depending on room lighting and device, the screen can become almost black, without differentiation between objects. In these cases, boosting the gamma can make the game playable. The only other one I really miss is the ability to turn on time stamps.

    OMG! Thank you, Hubi. I have only played around with it for a half-hour or so on my HP tablet, but so far, it is the best kb for android tablets I've ever seen!
  12. Android client [New version, 29th of November]

    Installed on Amazon Kindle Fire 7 (one year old) with 8 Gb RAM. It installed to the SD card, and has its data on the tablet. I created a new character on my PC before logging in on the Android app. It started up and logged into the just-created character without issue. FPS ranged from a low of about 15 to a high of about 45. Harvesting vegetables in IP (with effects enabled), i noted around 22 FPS. I didn't have any trouble with it after hitting home key to check battery or email and then returning to the app. On the one occasion when I was out for a couple of minutes, it d/c'ed and logged back in automatically upon clicking on the open app. When I accidentally powered off once, I came back to the same black screen that Biker_boy described. I rebooted before firing it up again. I successfully traded, both with my main character and with a bot (both buying and selling). The new char completed all of the Tutorial NPC quests, through the Seridium Journey, and got the achievement. You mentioned that you will be making changes to the fonts soon. The place where I had the hardest time with them was in the NPC dialogs, particularly when there were 2 or more lines of options. There is almost no line spacing between the two lines of text, so it's really hard to hit the right one. The short 'More' prompt also caused me to walk around like I had the heebie-jeebies! I'm very pleased with the look, the stability, and how much of the PC game is already implemented in this client. I'll continue to try to get it working on my HP tablet, as it would be easier to work with it on something a little larger than 7". But, it's quite playable atm on my Fire. Keep up the good work!

  14. Crafting update?

    Hi, Ungoliant. Thanks for bringing up this issue. I know it is something that has bothered many crafters for years. I make over half of my total income from making and selling rings. I make 25 of the 26 transportation rings regularly. (PV rings I usually buy from NPC & resell). So I have some concerns about how any change to the ring market would affect me. I'm not keen on the idea of raising NPC prices. Adarah's sell prices on rings are mostly above NPC price now. If NPC price is raised, bot prices will go up also. This will likely make more people use TP essies rather than rings more often, reducing an already declining demand. I looked at your ring ing costs and compared them with a similar spreadsheet that I last updated 3 or 4 years ago, and the costs are similar, indicating little price volatility for these items. I rarely change ring prices, and in fact have only changed them on my bot in recent years in response to Adarah changing her ring buy prices above my sell prices. Reducing ing costs would be nice for many, but would not affect me unless the price for Gem Sanders was reduced, as those are the only thing I buy for ring-making. So my only gc out of pocket is 10 x the number of polished gems in the recipe. On the issue of a chance of making a 'special', such as a hydro ring, it has some interesting possibilities depending on how it is implemented. If the 'special' is particularly valuable, I'd expect people will make a lot more of the least expensive rings, hoping to make one, thus driving prices down. I'd suggest that at some point, you make a poll with several options. Good luck
