  1. Linux static bin needed for the update.

    I had exactly the same problem. After installing libpng3 and restarting the client, everything was ok.
  2. How would i go about starting ranging?

    According to the encyclopedia, they both do 5-8 damage. I also thought I noticed differences in damage between the bows. Is the encyclopedia wrong?
  3. TS Pots a/d penalty

    Thanks. It worked.
  4. TS Pots a/d penalty

    Could someone tell me what the maximum a/d penalty is for TS pots? I took a few pots and got the penalty 3 times, but my a/d was reduced by only 8. I seem to recall reading that you could reduce it more. Is that true, or has it changed?
  5. Crash after re-connect

    How do I do that? (I am running linux btw).
  6. Crash after re-connect

    I have the harvesting effect enabled. After a network disconnect while harvesting and then a re-connect, I sometimes notice that the harvesting effect keeps on going, although I am no longer harvesting. When I then start harvesting, the harvesting effect stopped. When I then stopped harvesting, the client crashed. This, or something similar, has happened twice so far.
  7. CVS Tags

    I see that 1.6.0 final has now been released in binary format, but has not been tagged in CVS. I don't want to appear to be complaining, or overly fussy, but might I suggest that greater use is made of CVS tags or labels. In my experience, it is a great help in knowing exactly which version you are testing on. As a linux user, if I wanted to test a particular RC, or switch between RCs to track down a particular bug, I would have to try to guess when the RC was built and get cvs from that time. It is a bit late now, but I think every binary release (that means RCs and not just full releases) should also be tagged. There is very little overhead or effort in doing so and the advantages are that you can always test with a defined state. Anyway the final release should at the very minimum be labelled.
  8. I would like to test this in linux too, which means that I have to compile from CVS. As there you have not tagged this test release, it would mean that I would have to test against HEAD, which currently seems to be quite a moving target, with lots of new features. Would it be possible to tag such test and bug-fix releases in future? That way we could at least build to a defined state.
  9. Azerty configuration

    Strange, it works for my qwertz (german) keyboard.
  10. Forum registration

    Could you please let Cthulhu_lnx into the forums. He is in the lnx guild and is not a bot.
  11. CVS Client on gentoo linux - white screen.

    Thanks for the help. I followed your advise and got it working.
  12. CVS Client on gentoo linux - white screen.

    Thanks. I downloaded the latest data files from the beplacid site. Now the client starts, but when I attempt to logon it segfaults.
  13. CVS Client on gentoo linux - white screen.

    Where do I get the data files? I don't want to simply write over my existing client.
  14. I just compiled the CVS client without errors. When I try to start the app, I get a white screen. I see a background of a different colour however, where the greeting text usually is. Any clues? I am running gentoo linux with the binary nvidia drivers.
  15. hydro ore counter - 2 errors

    Thanks for the answer. It is good to hear that the counters bug is fixed in the next version. I am just curious as to how much space it would really take up, keeping such info on the server. My counters file is only 4kB. If there are 10k people registered, then that is 40MB, which is not huge. Maybe it is a lot percentage-wise though, I don't know. Although an asthetic feature, it adds to the fun of the game. After all, isn't accumulating points a big part of such games?
