  1. Server Log

    Interesting indeed. BTW - Pteronophobia is the fear of being tickled by feathers!
  2. Global advantages

    How about, as opposed to invasions, there are "infestations" of minor monsters which are easily killed, but their db offer something a little more substantial than normal?
  3. Global advantages

    This is a little bit of a stretch, but perhaps some of it could be useful. How about setting up a Tax NPC who operates something like the Wandering Fool, but approaches a PC and demands they remit a tax (that can be deducted from their Storage)... nothing huge, say 1-10gp... The money is used in turn to offer discounts from NPC's for items, you could rotate which shops would offer the discount either by type (Book Seller, Magic Shop, etc.) or by Geographical location. All of which could either be announced globally, or only when you walk into the NPC's store.
  4. Cal3d.dll Problem

    Problem Solved, Reinstalled official client and everything works fine now. Thanks for the help
  5. Cal3d.dll Problem

    So no help at all? Nobody knows whats going on here?
  6. Cal3d.dll Problem

    After reformatting my hard drive and downloading the EL client and the 1.3 update, as well as a the latest video driver for my ati 7500 radeon card, i get the following error when I try to execute the game: I tried searching this thread, but couldn't come up with anything that looked like it answered my problem. Here are my system stats: Display Drivers: I'm sure it's something really simple. I would appreciate any help.
  7. Wouldn't it be great if we could walk up to a clothes line and change our character's clothes? I don't necessarily mean we'd get to pick whatever colour or style we wanted, but we would get to pick what we saw on the lines. Some of us would get unlucky, I mean, if it's a Dwarf's house, a human wouldn't be able to wear those clothes.
  8. [patch] Kill Counter

    I'm a little late getting to this, but what about adding to the kill counter the number of times your character was killed and by which animal? Grizzly: Session 0 Total 0 Killed You 523 Hope this wasn't brought up earlier, only skimmed the thread :\ Great patch tho. Cheers.
  9. Client Crashes constantly [SOLVED]

    It took me awhile to get the proper driver from Ati's website, but I finally got it. The client works now that the new driver is installed. Thanks for your help
  10. Client Crashes constantly [SOLVED]

    I saw that, and I guess I'm not surprised that would be whats going on. Of course I'll go to ATI's website and download the "latest" driver, but here's the thing that gets me: I downloaded my current driver not three days ago. Hopefully I can get a new "latest" driver and the problem will be fixed. I'll post the results. Thanks
  11. Ever since last night's update I haven't been able to login on my character. I enter my character name and password (correctly of course) click the login button and I get the Dev C+ crash message. Constantly. Which is to say again and again. Which is kind of annoying to see. I mean, I tried logging in about 30-40 times. I've had these crashes before, the worst it ever got for me was four crashes in a row (on any given day), but then I usually can log in. I was told before that it was because my graphics card was conflicting with the client where the use of open gl was concerned and that I should "go and buy a better card". Which, for many reasons I won't go into here, I simply did not do. See below for my system configuration. Thing's I've Tried So Far 1) I've tried rebooting my system - both warm and cold boots. Crash crash crash. 2) Check my Error Log (see below for contents) 3) Check my Connection Log (see below for contents) 4) Swore a hell of a lot. (helped somewhat) 5) Played a Kenny-G tape I found in a parking lot one time. (I was astounded how much that helped) 6) Ate a strawberry shortcake. (Didn't help much at all, but it needed to be done) 7) Watered my plants.

  13. Encyclopedia gone [SOLVED]

    Oooh, I forgot to mention I downloaded this client about 2 weeks ago (had to format my hard drive a while back so I needed to reinstall the whole game). I do have the language/en/*.* directory and I changed a line in my El config file to read: #language = "en" This solved both problems. The Encyclopedia is now up and the Error: Can't open file "languages/e/knowledge.lst" log is gone. Thanks for the help.
  14. Encyclopedia gone [SOLVED]

    HI, I've been away for three months, so I'm assuming this bug has already been dealt with and I just can't pull it up in any of my searching. The Problem(s): I can't see the encyclopedia. The menu pops up, I can see everything under the Game Rules tab, but there's nothing under the Encyclopedia tab, the Skills tab or the help tab. Also, I'm getting the following entry in my error log. I don't have a /languages/e/*.* Directory I'm missing something. What I've done: Besides spending about 30 minutes searching the forums for these problems (and others which I have corrected), I checked my error log. The only error I have left is: Perhaps the encyclopedia and this missing file/directory are related? If someone could just point me to the section that these errors were dealt with, that would be great Fyvle.
  15. Large Spider - Drop Bags

    LOL I didn't think to do that. Thanks LadyReni. I don't mind if this is what I have to do to get at the creature drop bags... I was just thinking there was a more convenient way.
