  1. EL dreams?

    He also used to do I Can't Believe It's Not Butter commercials or something! hahahaha And no, it was just Learnerfabio sitting on a desk in a cubicle xD
  2. EL dreams?

    The only EL dream I can remember is some weird dream where I was working at EA and Learner showed up in my dream and looked like Fabio. That was really freaky. xD
  3. Another Beam

    I would have thought after this thread http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=35289 that you would have searched first. This has been suggested before. Just search for "beam." http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...261&hl=beam http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...c=18045&hl= http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...c=23006&hl= And there is a current discussion already going on about a newbie/tutorial island. Not to mention the times that has been discussed before. http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=35456
  4. PK points system

    I voted for asymmetric because this is the way (IIRC) it works in Wii Sports, and I like that point system, and because I like the pros/cons of the asymmetric system more. If I think of a formula later, I will edit my post.
  5. Coke or Pepsi?

    Coke! I can't stand Pepsi at all. and the diet versions of BOTH suck....ewwwwwwwwww
  6. Hello, seems I'm back here yet again. Now ya'll know why I haven't been on in a while Anyway, EL starts for me, but cannot connect to the server. I read in this thread http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=34693 that it is probably some program blocking EL. Howerver, I'm running Ubuntu Linux (Edgy Eft), and I do not have any virus protection software nor any firewall. I have disabled GAIM, since that worked for Grogan. The only thing I have running is firefox (to post this) and a terminal window. And yes, I tried closing firefox and then running EL. Edit: And no, EL isn't being blocked by my service provider (MIT). I am really at a loss. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Stats: Ubuntu Edgy Eft Graphics card: Intel 85GM integrated 512 RAM 40 GB hard drive like 1.66 GHz processor error_log.txt: Log started at 2007-06-07 15:07:30 localtime (EDT) [15:07:30] Error: Can't open file "quest.log" [15:07:30] Error: Can't open file "./tmp/temp000.dat" [15:07:30] Error: Can't open file "commands.lst" On another note...the game warns me after accepting the rules that my graphics card is not sufficient to support the "next release." I have gone through el.ini and disabled everything (sound, eye candy, special effects, music, shadows...etc etc). If I can get it to connect, will the game even work, or am I just SOL until I get a new computer in a few months?
  7. Cannot connect to server [SOLVED]

    Oh my gosh...THANK YOU GUYS~!!!!!!! The #server_address was set to eternal-lands.network-studio.com Changed it to game.eternal-lands.com and VOILA!!!!!!!! HERE I COME PENGUINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Cannot connect to server [SOLVED]

    Grum, that's exactly what my telnet says. The telnet doesn't say it can't connect, just the client. While trying to connect, the CPU usage goes up only 0-10%, but mostly there is no change. Once I try to alt-x or close it with the x on the window, the CPU usage goes up like 10-15% and I have to kill -9 it.
  9. Cannot connect to server [SOLVED]

    Ok, well, maybe it's just a problem with my game/computer. Telnet seems to work, and it takes a very long (5-10 min) to say that it cannot connect. If I click on the client while it's trying to connect, or minimize/maximize it, the client goes completely black, and I have to kill -9 to get rid of it. I was just assuming it was getting frozen because it was trying to connect, but maybe it is something else? Gah, I want to see the penguins! And no, it can't be virus software/firewalls/network. I have no virus software or firewalls, and I have tried this on three very different networks. Plus, I could play on my desktop (which I do not have access to anymore), but not on my laptop. Now that I think about it, this problem has been going on since I installed Ubuntu a few weeks ago.
  10. Cannot connect to server [SOLVED]

    I can access the online players page. I have been trying to connect for several (3 or so) days now. :-/
  11. What is your opinion about multiplaying?

    I'll admit I'm a little conflicted about this issue, so here are my list of pros and cons that I can think of right now. Pros: 1.) Families/legitimate groups of different people can play together without a problem. 2.) I've always had a gut feeling that it should be OK for people to legitimately trade with two accounts of their own. For example, if I had a manufacturing character and my fighting character paid the manu character fair prices. So basically, I would level two characters and treat them as if they were independent. However, I am fully aware that if multiplaying were allowed, this is not how it would be used by a lot, if not the majority, of players. Cons: 1.) What molime said. 2.) I can't help but think that creating alts to get around limitations of one character in a way not consistent with playing two accounts as if they were separate players is somehow cheating. I really fear that this will lead to a community like thatothergame. 3.) I'd hate to see EL turn into a game where "grinding" is standard gameplay. Okay, I guess cons 2 and 3 are basically the same as 1, but I just wanted to expand a little. Yeah, this change would relieve pressure and duties on mods etc, but...well...I just am really afraid that it will change EL for the worst. I could be wrong. It might turn out fine. But I just have a feeling that the type of people I have always been glad don't play EL will start playing. I am worried that it will change EL's wonderful community for the worst. So I voted no.
  12. Day Jobs

    I'm working at EA this summer as a programmer. Still looking for a full-time job to start in the fall, but it will be some sort of programming thingamajig.
  13. Post your T-shirt ideas!

    Mmm hmm, yes please! I'm definitely getting a mug and a keychain!!
  14. This is really annoying....

    Just because you can do something, doesn't necessarily mean you should do it. Like others said, the Outlaws forum is to warn other players of people who break the *community* rules. If you don't want to be posted there, don't do anything that would make someone want to post you there. Yes, being posted in Outlaws causes other players to look down on you...but that's the whole point.
  15. Goblins armpits!

    Lol Roja, you're so thorough That's grody ^_^
  16. What good is a p2p race?

    Of course I bought mine because I wanted to support the game, and because I loved the uniqueness of being a gnome (there were only 4 gnomes when I bought my p2p--all male). So I was the first female gnome
  17. RC3

    Continued from RC2... Karen: The LOD still requires me to relog before taking effect. I'm using RC3. Just a note...sorry, I can't test CVS. I can only get it to compile on one computer, which currently can't handle EL for some crazygonuts reason, and I am not willing to allocate time to look into why until Thursday night. But if there's more info I can provide you, just let me know.
  18. Sexiest NPC?

    Lol, that just makes it even hotter
  19. What good is a p2p race?

    They look cool. They help the game because you have to pay for them. There is a minor PK advantage because there are currently no fighting books for p2p races, so no one gets the +5 a/d advantage that books give. But mostly they look cool and give you an excuse to donate to the game
  20. Sexiest NPC?

    Omgosh, it's SUCH a tossup between Atekel and Christopher! They just make my heart melt, ya'll. Two very sexy lads.
  21. RC 2

    Yeah, I just didn't want it to get lost in the other thread Here are the eye candy settings I have now: Max framerate: 45 Min framerate: 20 Light column threshhold: 15
  22. RC 2

    I still have to log in to see the effects of my LOD settings. I have tested it so far in the C1 portals room and around a WSC fountain. Same thing in both places: I have to relog while in the map before the LOD settings take effect. Reference from RC1 thread: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...st&p=357490
  23. refined and power mix

    This has been reported several times. They know what the problem is, it has something to do with the same image being used too many times. For reference: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...&hl=refined http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.p...&hl=refined
  24. The Release Candidate is here!

    I've been playing with the eye candy settings because the eyecandy kills my FPS. I have found a good combo of settings that gives me 19-23 FPS in the tele room, which is a drastic improvement from what I had before (like 1-9). However, there is one problem that happens. When I teleport to the tele room, it seems to ignore my eye candy settings. All the "beams" are in full detail, so my FPS is very low (7-9). Once I relog *in* the tele room, the settings take effect, and the LOD drops. Also, changing the settings while in the tele room *only* has an effect if I have already relogged while in the tele room. I tested this several times, and it was the same effect every time. I have to relog inside the tele room to get the settings to take effect. Here are my system specs: Windows XP, RC client Nvidia GeForce 4 OpenGL version 1.5.7 Pentium 4, 2.67 GHz 512 MB Ram 46 GB hard drive Here are the eye candy settings I have now: Max framerate: 45 Min framerate: 20 Light column threshhold: 15 Hope this is useful
  25. France and America

    Lol, I was just about to post this video and I found this thread Anyway, the text up at the top is taken from this video. Warning: bad language/sexual content. http://www.davidlebovitz.com/archives/2007...o_bad_ab_1.html
