  1. hatwood.net

    Some more notes of mine that I found: These two posts are really off-topic to this thread but I'll hunt around to find a better spot for this conversation.
  2. hatwood.net

    I'll preface the little I can offer with this: I know nothing of photoshop. I use GIMP in Linux, and my knowledge is pretty rudimentary, at best. There is a steep learning curve and I don't find it very intuitive for newbies or infrequent/casual users, of which I am both. Also, she is going to have to do a LOT of online searches. Youtube videos will help a lot. The problem I ran into is what I thought was a good key word to use for search, the digital artistic world didn't and used different words. Meh. The entire thing will be very labor intensive and time intensive. So no, I never did find any instructions. I had to find my own way and did not do that great of a job of it. As to stretching, the original capes themselves intentionally were made to stretch as to create the shape and pattern of the folds. No way around that. I found three ways to handle it: 1. Avoid any images that would go into the center of the cape and just do images/designs that border the cape using the edges and bottom. 2. Make the image approximately twice as wide as it is long. This will take a ton of trial and error to get the proportions right. 3. Pick an image that still looks good when it's stretched. Making folds on the image: (again, all of this will require a lot of trial and error practice and is very time consuming) 1. Make a layer to go on top of the cape that is semi-opaque so you can still see the folds through it. 2. Use shading options: the higher ridges of the folds highlighted in a lighter color than the main cape color, and the deeper valleys a darker shade. Some basic instructions for GIMP customs: Open Gimp and then open with the item you want to make a custom (I suggest you make a copy of it with a different name so you don't ruin the original) Gimp will ask you if you want to open mipmaps as well. Do NOT open mipmaps!!! You need to create a new layer to add your image. This layer is where you will work on your new image. Make sure you MERGE all layers (new and original file) before saving. Once you have merged all your layers into 1 single layer, make sure you right click the layer in the layers window, and select 'Layer to image size.' This will crop any part of the layer that extends past the image dimensions to the right size. If you have part of the layer extending past the image edge, the custom will appear blank white. When you are done, it is time to save it. However, you have to choose EXPORT file (NOT "save"), to your Documents/Eternal Lands/custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/ folder First it will ask you if you want to overwrite, you choose yes. Than another panel appears where you set compression: none. Next, on the same panel you HAVE TO choose to generate mipmaps; this is important since not all people have latest graphic card, or they use Poor Man settings, and in this case EL will use those generated mipmaps. Now you can make a folder to see this locally (which means only the person doing this can see it for now). You will need to create a path, no idea what the windows path would be but mine in Linux is ~/.elc/updates/1_9_6/custom/player/your_player-name/meshes/name_of_item.dds *Note* you need to make sure you use the same exact name as the original item you are customizing, and rename the original item to something like original_cape1_green.dds Final result should be approximately 25kb in size, dxt1, and mipmap 1:8 I found this link helpful as well: From: https://journalxtra.com/gimp/how-to-make-a-semi-transparent-image-using-gimp/

    Weird. I approved your account and you should be able to log in now. And yes this is the right place to post.

  5. Character locked

    For everyone else's entertainment, got these from our good buddy DrtyDevil/WhiteRhino: Forum message to me: He is posting restricted and needs approval for any post...so here is his other public post: Such a charmer, that one. Maybe he should re-read some of his old ban threads.
  6. Character locked

    Lol all it proves is that Jonathan knows the stats of the character he scammed. Look. Anyone with half a brain knows that Jonathan is behind these posts, if not the actual author. Easy enough for him to ask a girlfriend, or whatever you are claiming to be, to post pretending to own the character. Every single time something like this happens, guess what. It's been Jonathan all along telling hilarious make believe stories. Remember the time he tried to scam radu and said his brother was a lawyer and was going to take him to court? Please. Whether or not you are some girl he's using or Jonathan himself, we're done with it. Never ending trouble. Best case scenario is you are a girl Jonathan is using to get the account back so he can "sell" it yet again to scam somebody else. But the words from this guest Skittles account are pure Jonathan. We're done here. "We're done here." does NOT mean hop on to yet another vpn and pm spam me to death with questions that have been answered several times in this forum thread. Do NOT start new threads and do NOT post personal information in threads.

    Funny "you" bought the character from somebody you claim you don't trust at all and yet never changed the password. There is not a single thing in your tall tale that adds up.
  8. Character locked

    I also don't think you clearly understand the definition of "proof", just like WR never did.
  9. Character locked

    You must all have gone to the same school - you type exactly like WR does.
  10. Character locked

    Not mentioned is that WR scammed the munnin character which was against all of his conditions to be allowed back into EL (and yes he was very aware of those conditions). So that was grounds for instant lock and ban of any and all characters he was associated with. So even on the very off chance you are a third party that WR is using to get the character back, you paid WR for a character he never paid for. Mind you, I don't believe this, but going along with your story for a brief moment.

    I actually thought this post was right on target, especially considering everything you said you are not willing to do but everyone else should do. If all you are able to do is come play, then come play and increase the count by one!
  13. Wrong Channel

    I think you are missing the point. You do this every day, multiple times a day. That is not "after 1 WC". The issue doesn't disappear each time you do it, it doesn't disappear each time the sun rises, nor does saying "WC" make it go away. And to answer your question, yes others get muted or kicked if they do it repeatedly. Key word, repeatedly.
  14. I've been having a horrible time with 22.04 LTS. I use it on a laptop to host a guard bot and also have a discord client and regular alt client on it and it repeatedly just shuts down willy nilly. Research guided me to troubles with systemd-OOMD but I'm still having trouble after shutting that down. I don't normally run Ubuntu but wanted it on this extra laptop so it would coincide with somebody else's laptop if they ever needed help. I'm not liking it at all and not sure what to look at. Also there seems to be headaches with snap but I haven't pinned those down yet. I stopped the discord client and put the extra alt back on my main Arch box, and just have the guardbot there. I am going to try to narrow down the problem one item at a time. I also put up System Monitor to see how the CPU and memory and swap are doing.
