Re: Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

I think one of the massive hurdles for potential new wizards is that you basically have nobody to ask, a documentation that is ancient, and extremely limited access to "real" code. I think quite a few people would find it fun to just play around with real code and test things out. It doesn't solve ...

Re: Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

Re: Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

Perhaps letting some who wants to prove their worth to join a dev-server and develop there? If they manage to _finish_ their work and get it approved by the admin may see it live. I think the greatest hurdle is to actually _finish_ a project and not necessarily due to lack of codingskills, so a dev...

Re: Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

I cant see anyone else filling the roles. It is quite scary but the future of Genesis lays in just a few hands, when they give up we're all doomed! Exactly. Which isnt a good setup. I mean purely speculating now, but even IF Gorboth really doesnt have the time or energy to work on Genesis, CAN he r...

Re: Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

Sorry Kiara, this would turn into total chaos and further speed up the end of Genesis. Well isn't a quick end with less suffering preferable though...?:) Seriously, I dont think it would be chaotic though. I think it's impossible to infuse life into the game without some type of "extreme" change to...

Restart Genesis with more or less open source code

Okay, So Genesis is suffering from lack of players, lack of wizards, lack of energy and positivism. Yeah there's really no denying any of that. Our players are generally pretty uninterested and grind on scripts while complaining about whats wrong with the game (like I am now). Our wizards, which are...

Re: Zhar the Questmaster

Imagine a situation like this: In a barn. A haystack. > Obviously, the first thing that comes to your mind will be <explore the haystack in the corner>, will it not? That's the ferret quest in a pill. I am not sure why you trying to argue this. I dont disagree with you at all. What I am saying is I...

Re: Zhar the Questmaster

Just looking at the code the quest is perfectly solvable, there are no typos etc. The thing with it is that syntax is rather complex and not intuitive for most things you need to do. Also, the hints are scarce and don't really help you much with the syntax issues. I remember that back in the day it...

Re: Zhar the Questmaster

Ferrets in Ansalon, or maybe I'm just blind. The wallenwood leaf to the Shaman in Solace. Also the gnome secureboard I've completed many times, never worked for me. Ferrets is one of the quests that gave me the idea in the first place :) Will look into others too. Navarre (I think) fixed some crazy...

Re: Zhar the Questmaster

Zhar: I have filed countless of typo and bug reports during the years regarding quests. Maybe you can check through that list? I might not the the only one who have done the same either. Unfortunately I havent quested for awhile (out of quests) so I dont remember which ones I found particularly ann...
