  1. Top Players Has Returned *beta*

    Will this be done for the PK server too?
  2. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    Sounds like this is a dead-end unless I can stumble upon some settings combination that helps, or until the client is modified (probably not anytime soon). But thanks for all the diagnostic help above.
  3. Very sad news, regarding Learner

    Devastating news.
  4. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    First, this effect only seems to happen INside. I couldn't reproduce it outside. Second, all three actions cause assets to change states (visible to black or reverse): pan (horizontal angle), zoom, vertical angle.
  5. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    Here's my 1,000 words on what it looks like outside at night. I turned on reflections and shadows for this pic.
  6. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    Outside, the ground and water look normal, or perhaps just a bit darker than normal night. It's generally only vertical things that are black: characters, buildings, walls, rocks, critters. The water at night even has reflections of the sky/clouds if I turn those on. With reflections off, it's just a solid cyan color.
  7. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    I have turned off every option on the GFX tab (including shadows). I have toggled every option on the Video and Troubleshooting tabs. It was suggested to try the "new water shader" but I get "Your system does not support..." so that's out.
  8. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    I mentioned that things change with pan/zoom? In some cases, that candle DOES light up the table and immediate area. Same with outside light sources and lightening.
  9. El on Chromebook - the night is black.

    It's a mess because all the CRs appeared to get lost in the chat_log.txt so the list is just one l-o-n-g line.

  10. I have a new HP x360 14c Chromebook (nice little box) upon which I have enabled the Linux (Debian) option and installed EL. Things look fine during daylight hours, but at night pretty much everything goes black. It's as if any ambient light is turned off. I can sometimes see stuff during a lightening flash, or when near a light source (like a candle or a lamp). I've tried turning off everything on the GFX tab, poor man, and playing with Gamma (which didn't appear to have any effect even in daylight). Pan and zoom sometimes makes it get better or worse (totally black screen). I'm not sure what else to look or try. Any ideas?
  11. Peace Day Poll

    Peace day is no different to fighters than Green day is to harvesters or Labor day to mixers. So it should have a removal stone just like many other bad days. If I could vote twice, I'd also be OK with instance, invance exceptions on the day. But I think a removal stone is more consistent.
  12. Every Golden Achievement

    I'm working on it. I'd sure like a new harvestable or better daily rewards to cut that time some... ;-) I'm a little surprised that no other non-a/d skill has hit 179 yet.
  13. Nexus Tether perk

    As a semi-pro harvester, I would never spend (waste?) that many PPs just to prevent a few teleports. I MIGHT use that many PPs to eliminate all mini-events and negative events (just keep the positive). But 7 PPs just to remove one negative event, nope.
  14. AND dung harvesting... Perhaps I should check the current market prices. But the suggestion does sound like it has merit.
  15. Login Server Down?

    I had this exact issue from one particular network (blocked ports) and used Learner's proxy service to work around it. I assume it's still functional (although I have't needed it for several years). http://el.other-life.com/support.php
