  1. LG G3 Android 6.0. Works well in my limited testing. Frame rates in the mid 30s in and around PL sto. Quite amazing to see it running on a mobile actually, but not sure that it's playable at that screen size.


    I did attempt to run it on a tablet (Samsung Galaxy 10" Tab 3) but it fails on loading. I think though that this might have an atom processor, so it is the same problem reported earlier about x86 support.

  2. Random spots makes joker hunting impossible, because he can hide behind every tree and rock on (nearly) every map.


    So all you must do, without any further hint of his location, is to run across the whole EL world, look behind every single bush, check every house or cave or secret place.




    So, as I said, you probably know the current locations. How is that challenging to find Joker?

  3. I have a suggestion.

    Come back but don't tell anyone. Once you have proven to be an asset to the community, try again.

    This just looks like the same-old same-old, and yes, then 3 years is not enough.


    This sounds like a really good idea ... unless you think the name resonates with people, in which case, nah stay banned. You were a real bug***, but I would like to think that you have grown up and can get on with the community without them knowing who you were previously.

  4. Why do people always want new stuff? It makes more sense to me to fix the "old" stuff so that it gets more use. There are countless (well not quite, but I mean there are a lot) of items that are just not worth using because they have been superceded by the "new" items that get added periodically.

  5. Most people use minimap as well as press & hold middle mouse button then move mouse sideways to spin the view.


    Sure, but a head movement is much more intuitive .... and immersive.


    Anyhow, I will leave people to their keyboards/mice :-)


    ...or possibly ..... Oculus Rift anybody? ..... I really am joking this time :-D, but if you haven't heard of it have a look here:



  6. Hi,


    does anyone in EL use TrackIR in other games? I think that it would be a amazing addition to the EL client.





    It is quite expensive to buy as a commercial product, but there is the option of a much cheaper homemade solution using opensource software FTnoIR or OpenTrack (the last one works in Linux/Mac too), and a fast framerate webcam (such as the PS3 eye)





  7. I like the idea, especially if xp is for manu not crafting. You don't need new items (my suggestion skin + dung). Personally I would use it in exactly the same way I do thread now .... if I want to level then I buy from NPC, if it's just for 'normal' use I stock up by making myself. I like the parity it would bring to manu & crafting. I would also like to get rid of the thousands of skins I have taking up room in my sto. By your arguments Burn, we would never have had thread making implemented & I always see plenty of people making that. EL life is not just about power levelling.

  8. It has come up before. and then as now I think it is a good idea. Animal skin + dung (or possibly saltpetre, but this would make it too expensive) = x leather would require no new raw materials. As to the argument that people would end up still buying from the NPC, that's fine but give them the choice (exactly like making or buying thread). Also, let it be manu experience as opposed to crafting.

  9. There are many quests, ranging from "Kill 10 rats" to "Kill 20 rats".


    that's not too awe-inspiring :devlish: (Home page)


    Perhaps you should learn how not to read stuff selectively?


    With respect, but how is that selective? That is the complete sentence, and re-reading it today means exactly the same thing to me again ie. the quest range is very limited.

  10. Well i got 2 binding stones, 1 serpent stone and one enrichment stone this week :P

    So you were extremely lucky. I doubt very much that you would expect to do this every week.

    Since when is all the fancy stuff supposed to be a commonplace every day item for everyone to make and wear?

    I totally agree that fancy stuff is not supposed to be commonplace (even though it actually is). What I disagree with is that, in the case of a great sword for example, I cannot make one for less than the cost of buying one from the NPC if I buy the ingredients. It only becomes worthwhile if I find the serpent stones, in this case. The ability to manufacture it (a game feature) becomes pointless. Oh, you do it for the experience, I hear someone say. Not likely, xp is much more easy to get from clouting a few monsters. Specific xp in manu comes back to the old grind away at leather helms.

  11. Does anyone else feel that the probabilities of getting such items has become so miniscule that it affects how they play the game? Great swords aren't worth making, CoLs etc. are ridiculous in their requirements in the light of the price of ingredients. Why have such key ingredients become so scarce? The cynical view is that it helps shop sales, but I for one do not begrudge Radu reaping the benefits of what has been sown, however I do feel strongly that gameplay is suffering.
