  1. This works on Android too. The path to make it work on my Android client is: {myuserstorage}/Android/data/com.purebinary.elc/files/user/
  2. This looks similar to a previous issues reported where there was a problem with the graphics card or graphics driver. Make sure your graphics driver is up to date and if that doesn't work switch between the Windows default driver and the latest from your graphics card maker. There may be additional clues in your chat log regarding graphics. Can you post the lines that are written as the client starts up? It should be in your Windows User's EL folder and named chat_log.txt.
  3. Questions about game future

    Those of us who've contributed to the game have spent time knowing the game and where we are able to contribute based on our abilities. While I agree with you that marketing is lacking and you're not the first person to mention it, this is my advice -- take it for what it's worth. Play the game and get to know the current player base. You might run into someone who's great at organizing, fundraising, or marketing or you might not. You might find another way to make the game better. I understand that you may not want to invest a lot of time in something that you're unsure of but that's a risk we all take and there is no guarantee that a large marketing effort would be successful either. I like this game and I found some good (and not so good) people here and all that makes playing this game worth it to me.
  4. The only reason I'm using Ubuntu is because I'm on a laptop and my main Arch Linux PC cannot run EL anymore. Something about the graphics and the kernel memory allocations that eats all the RAM and it only happens when running EL.
  5. I just upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Focal Fossa to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish. After the upgrade, when the game window is covered completely by another window, and I return to the game window, the animations need to "catch up" and I have many "Resync with the server..." and "Low framerate" messages. There was a similar issue prior to 1.9.5 build 7 which had been solved by that release. When the window is minimized I can tell for a split second that the game window turns black which prevents the animation, framerate, and sync issues.
  6. Forums lost avatars since https

    The avatars weren't working for me either but as of a couple minutes ago, the default avatar image is working but custom images are still giving the Internal Server Error. The image only started working because it got cached when I went to the image url directly.
  7. Very sad news, regarding Learner

    My thanks to Learner for his part in providing me with good times in EL and derivatives. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and those close to him. My heart also goes out to those here for whom this news is difficult to endure.
  8. Peace Day Poll

    This day served me well in my early days. Making the day more rare would make it mostly unavailable to newer and low level players. I understand that sometimes it feels that this day happens often in a bunch but that's the nature of randomness. We go long times without the day too. Perhaps we make the day a 1/2 day? This way the complainers don't need to wait so long and the day happens occasionally enough for those who like it.
  9. Can't connect to server?

    There is currently an outage.
  10. When the client first starts and the "Show Status Indicators in HUD" option is off, you have to enable it in order to show the glow status messages from server. Once it's enabled, the messages will show even if you turn the HUD option off while the client is running. If the client starts with the HUD option enabled, the glow status server messages show in console. The problem is also present in non-Android versions.
  11. 100-120 invance

    Sounds like a combination of small team and bad luck. Occasionally mobs swarm hard and sometimes they don't. That said, I do think this invance is harder than the others but it's been done mostly successfully from what I've seen even with small teams. If you're just entering the range, it's going to be quite hard. Overall, don't let one failure discourage you. Teamwork is more important in this range and have a plan. Invisibility works great to protect the gate against swarms and that puts even the toughest mobs at a disadvantage.
  12. Yes, if people have a previous EL app version, they should either uninstall it or they should at least clear out the app data through App Preferences before launching the new version.
  13. I had scaling issues and found that they were caused by data from a previous installation. Either scale was too large or too small. I fixed this by clearing out the app's data. You might also want to delete, if it exists, <user storage>/Android/data/com.el.elc. After this, the app launched with the correct scaling.
  14. This seems to resolve the crashes for me too. Strangely, I can still see floating messages through objects such as houses so maybe there is no disadvantage to this fix.
  15. I found that disabling floating messages prevents the crash even when I have mobs' banner with Names and HP enabled.
