  1. The god items quest should only be done once per run/instance, that's 1 in total, not 1 per person, but 1 total. It is now officially considered an exploit to obtain more than 1 god item per instance via any means when doing the god items quest. Anyone found to be breaking this rule after this post will be permanently banned. A fix is in the works and will be applied soon. All god items obtained prior to the fix application will be made forever account bound regardless of how they were obtained. You may use this time to return any borrowed items back to their original owners or make any sales you wish to make.
  2. Eir returns, likely with the following changes: Rates Exp: 5x (same) Drop: 3x (same) MVP Cards: 1x (lower) Premium Items Some will be somewhat stronger. Most will be permanent. The strongest items will be rental only. Quests, NPC's, & Regular Items Eir will get most of Loki's content, and will be more like Loki than before. Like in the proposed changes to Thor, the content for Eir will be rewritten to be more cohesive. Eir will also get the renewal instances, but with monsters and items adjusted for pre-re. The old data will not be kept. (Sorry, but apparently we don't have it anymore.)
  3. The server crashed so I did a quick maintenance and pulled the latest fixes for Loki. Thor will get these during the next proper maintenance. Attack penalty on Stalkers Double Strafing removed. Additional damage penalty on Stalkers Chase Walk removed. Alternate Clothes sprites now stack with VIP magic baby option (enable VIP magic#baby then put the clothes on to be a baby alt sprite) Castle Economy gain reduced (+1 every 15 minutes, was +1 every 6 minutes). Alternate Clothes now have dyes. Throe Voice (Lyrica Hat) adjusted (fixes #188) Safety Wall no longer makes the attacker receive reflect damage (fixes #115) Acid Demonstration is no longer affected by Archer Skel, Heroic Backpack, etc (fixes #221) Gold Soles now works as intended (fixes #211) Elemental Converter effects are now lost when changing weapons (fixes #228 & #73) Venom Dust now works correctly (fixes #199 & #193) Alternate Sprites now work correctly (fixes #243) Sealed Stardust Blade now works correctly (fixes #236) Old Card Albums can be sold on the market again (fixes #244) Notoriety MVPs are now boss types (fixes #86) Roundhouse now works correctly (fixes #133) Soul Strike now works correctly (fixes #135) Shadow of The Raven now works correctly (fixes #149) Dyna Third no longer will turn you into third upon relogging when it is disabled (fixes #63) Guarana Candy now works properly (fixes #203) Soul Linker Es-type skills now work correctly (fixes #127) @gstorage now works correctly (fixes #51) Blind Sphere now works correctly (fixes #218)
  4. Comments for the dev blog @mail: what to do?
  5. Could make donor 10 give you some more aesthetics in the forum.
  6. Changes have been made to WoE. The following are the castles open during specified dates/times. These changes are effective immediately. Tuesday 07:00 - 09:00 Hohenschwangau Bergel Andlangr 19:00 - 21:00 Neuschwanstein Yesnelph Himinn Thursday 07:00 - 09:00 Scarlet Palace Skoegul Cyr 19:00 - 21:00 Bright Arbor Kriemhild Mardol Saturday 07:00 - 09:00 Hohenschwangau Bergel Scarlet Palace Skoegul Andlangr Cyr 19:00 - 21:00 Neuschwanstein Yesnelph Bright Arbor Kriemhild Himinn Mardol These changes are in right now. In addition, next maintenance will be bringing new features for WoE. A new reward system based on participation, effects for castle wings, and non-donor WoE on Sunday. This maintenance won't be until Monday most likely so there won't be a non-donor WoE this weekend, but you can use this time to get prepped for it.
  7. So let me start this off with a few things. First, I've recently switched from Windows to Linux Mint. As such I've spent some time getting RebirthRO working on Linux. I didn't need to modify RebirthRO to do it, however, it did require a few tweaks here and there to Wine. I'm not sure if the patcher works (it starts) because there are not patches available at this time. First, you'll need to install Linux. This should work under any Debian based Linux (Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, ...) out of the box. There might be changes needed for other flavors. Some steps may be different as well since I used Mint's GUI package manager. You can probably do this with OS X as well but you'll have to install Wine based on the instructions off the Wine website. Click Menu and open the "Software Manager" Search "wine" and find and install Wine and Winetricks Open a terminal and execute the following: winetricks corefonts d3dx10 \ d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39 d3dx9_42 d3dx9_43 d3dx9 directx9 \ mfc42 msvcirt vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun6sp6 vcrun6 It might take a bit. Some of these might not be needed, but I grabbed everything I thought might be. Click Menu and type wine, then Click Browse C Drive. (or open the C drive if you know where it is) Create a new folder called RebirthRO (or call it Games, then make a folder inside that called RebirthRO) Open the Games folder, right click and click Open in Terminal Enter the following into the terminal... wget http://rebirthro.com/files/rro_se_installer.sh chmod +x rro_se_installer.sh ./rro_se_installer.sh Note: This will download all the RebirthRO program files into a folder called "SE" inside the current working folder. It replaces the installer which does not work correctly under Wine. This also does not download any DLL's that we just installed because we'd have to delete them anyway. Saves a lot of steps. Note 2: Do not close this terminal window, we'll come back to it. Click Menu again, search for Wine and open the wine configuration (or type winecfg in the terminal). Check the "Emulate a virtual desktop" box and enter a desktop size supported by RO in the next step. In the terminal you left open enter the following cd SE wine cmd Setup.exe Note: The first 2 commands are into your terminal, the last command in the command prompt opened by the wine command. In this dialog set the resolution from earlier, make sure to uncheck restrict mouse window. The final step is to open the game. Type the following into the wine command prompt: "RebirthRO Patcher.exe" Note: The quotes are required because it has a space. The patcher should open. The news will be blank unless you've installed Internet Explorer. Don't worry about that, just click start. The game should open up. Enjoy! To open the game next time follow steps 4 and 12 or step 4 and find the SE folder and just click the EXE. I hope this helps!
  8. Proposed changes to Thor are as follows... Rates Exp Rates: Raised to 200x Implemented Normal item drop rates: Raised to 20x Implemented MVP drop rates: Left at 10x Implemented Regular cards: Raised to 20x Implemented MVP cards: Left at 2x Implemented Premium Items Cash shop items will have their power increased to be more like they were on Tyr. Maybe slightly better. Some non-rentals will be added. The strongest items will remain rental only. 100 Point Coins will be added until the system which lets items be sold for points is done. NPC's, Quests, & Regular Items Thor will slowly get a lot of Loki's custom content (as in quests), but it will be modified to be more cohesive. Thor will slowly get the official renewal instances, but with modified (better) rewards.
  9. Donation levels were originally added to be mainly for prestige than anything else. If I recall donor 10 originally had some commands but those commands were lowered. There's been talk about what to give Donor 10's to reward them more, but so far no one has been able to think of anything. When I added VIP I gave them limited access VIP free for life, I believe that was the last major addition to donor 10.
  10. Been here, done this.
  11. Balance. It was never intended for the class to have a feels reset, it was supposed to be permanent. The fact you can reset it is custom. If it was free or very cheap there'd be no point in having a reset at all, might as well just give you the bonuses on everything and be done with it.
  12. Someone told you to reinstall your client? Good news! You usually don't need to reinstall the whole thing. Just download the client fixer. Some sprites crashing you but not others? Some sprites invisible to you but not others? Just run the client fixer. Unknown items in the cash shop or from an event? Just run the client fixer. Seeing some jobs as black? Open your installation folder and delete palette.grf, then run the client fixer.
  13. Comments on the WoE Barrier of Entry & Power Creep: Introducing Advanced Smithing & Durability blog entry.
  14. @g c q I deleted the off topic posts.
  15. Did you even read web site maint notes?
  16. A few months ago, Market, Web Cash Shop, Web Storage, etc, would have been on that list of yours. Just because it takes a while doesn't mean anyone ditched it. I'm doing everything by myself as a part time job, I plan things but then other more important things come up which delay those other things. The new system also has an expected date specifically mentioned in the dev blog, did you even read it?
  17. Just dual boot windows.
  18. We put a temp cap of 1% on all equip based drops while we figure out why some monsters are dropping them far more often than intended.
  19. Battle reports have been changed.
  20. Today there was website maintenance. I've added a new Web Cash Shop which allows us to organize things a bit better. Eventually everything in the in game cash shop will be in it, but for right now our focus was bringing back some of the old items that were removed from the in game cash shop and placed into Lucky Boxes. I've also removed the kill/death totals from Battle Reports for individuals. The total still displays for guilds. Enjoy! Note: If the menu doesn't work, clear your browsers cache.
  21. Just an FYI, if I catch someone making fun of someones mental illness I will drop a stack of ban hammers on them. Keep the trash talk in game related to in game stuff. Don't take it to real life. Tread carefully, noobs.
  22. Could just have non-donor on Sunday.
  23. I did that because at the time we had no way of easily checking the logs. We were trying to minimize the damage, it took almost 2 days to clean that up. Pretty much everyone that abused turned their credits in. We had to do it that way because almost every single person that had points abused it. We would have banned 100's of players. It was also reported right away and we took action against it immediately. This Bubble Gum exploit went on for days before someone bothered mentioning it to us. The fact it went on for so long rather than just an hour during Black Friday adds a bit of premeditation to it. They had days to think about it, days to reconsider their actions, yet they continued to keep it to themselves and abuse it. That's not really comparable to an exploit that only existed for short time and was immediately reported and closed. The largest difference between those 2 things is that we do understand how it's easy to get caught up in the moment. To see a 100 Point Coin for sale for 80, buy it, and buy more. Then a few minutes later think about it and go "Oh this probably isn't right" -- it's a very far cry from doing it for days and not telling anyone. That's why I told people that did less than 5 not to worry about it, because I know they did it a few times, realized it was wrong and stopped. I was rewarding their common sense. But with the Bubble Gum, there was no getting caught up in the moment there. It was outright abuse. They had plenty of time to think about it, plenty of time to realize it was wrong, and they continued to do it anyway.
