  1. Was going to check in this morning and discovered my computer was having this issue. As there is no work around I might as well uninstall on this laptop. Aside from the EA uninstall for the client and manually deleting the Net-7 folder, is there anything else needed for a full uninstall?
  2. Ages ago (pre, and even post Sunset) I extolled the virtues of this game and its community. When I found the emulator I was overjoyed, a blast from the past WORTH spending my time on. In fact, there was even one month I was actually able to donate to the cause (prior to my wages getting garnished for unpaid college loans). I survived wipes. Most were server wide, some were fleeting moments of stupidity on my own part. But throughout these wipes I tried to maintain the friendships I had made through this community.... and slowly I've been watching these friends disappear. Some have left because of real world problems, some because of the backstabbing and bickering in the forums and in game. After my last self-inflicted wipe, I was no longer in one of the big 3, and I began to notice the big 3 raid rotation debate even more than I had while I was in. I vowed to myself that I would not even participate in a Fishbowl until this had been resolved. ... and here we are today, constant back and forth about the raid rotation has bled into topics it has no business in (Player Advocate nomination as an example), I've yet to attend a raid with my 3 mains due to my self-imposed restriction, but have gotten so bored playing them that I've even started a couple of the dreaded clone race. Anyway, I guess what I'm getting at is this: I've got enough to deal with in the real world that I don't need to deal with this pettiness as well. I will not wipe my toons this time, but I am indefinitely on hiatus. It is my hope that, eventually, this community will rally together and thrive once more, until then... well I think Q said it best in Star Trek: The Next Generation's last episode "In any case, I'll be watching. And if you're very lucky, I'll drop by to say hello from time to time. See you.... out there"
  3. Try seeing it from the V'rix side. While the Jenquai are trying to study you (a nuisance), the Progen are trying to put holes in you (an honest threat). I truly don't know what they would think of the Terrans, but if I'm remembering my E&B lore correctly it was the Progen that started firing at them first. If you were a V'rix, wouldn't you try to stop them from getting stronger?
  4. I'm curious: is there a level requirement for "Solar Energy for Laymen" According to earlier post, the mission giver is Zachariah Garrett (Dahin). My JS (OL 131 33/48/50 with all builds maxxed) has been doing the missions and when she goes to Zach she gets his standard talk tree. "Hello there! I'm embarking on a grand project. Solar power's the way of the future, don't ya think?" Response options are "Not really" and "Yeah! Could be the next step in evolution" to which he responds "Finally! Someone who understands!" and Done shows up, no further progress available.
  5. Have not seen any new posts here in the Player Advocate section in some time, do we still have one (do we still need one?)?
  6. I've been having the same problems as well. I just assumed it was a problem with my wifi, but seeing others with the problems and knowing they're not on my network, I'm guessing it's something else
  7. During one of the stress tests I had seen a couple "offensive" names similar to a couple of these, may have even been a couple of these. I in-game pm'd someone on the DEV/GM team (I THINK it may have been AFVet, but not sure) making it clear that while I was not offended I could see how someone could be. I was simply told that whoever it was I had PM'd would "look into it" and never heard anymore about it. No official ticket was made at that time
  8. What I've done in the past is 105 Explore jobs from Earth Station to Pluto/Charon, dock at Charon Cloister and buy the only trade goods they have, back to Earth and sell, repeat all
  9. this again? I could be wrong but I believe the last time this came up the DEV/GM team said they will NOT get involved. The "agreement" was set up by 3 player guilds to split the raids giving the public a week for each raid. Last time I saw a thread on this, I gave up on reading the forums for about a month, because it was nothing but this! I seem to remember, however, that even the ADV's hands were tied, though I don't remember if that was because they were in one of the 3 guilds or if the DEV/GM team included the ADV in their non-partiality clause. Point being, I doubt you'll get any assistance from DEV/GM team on this matter, you've stirred a bee's nest, and the next month or so will probably be "It wasn't me" or "why do we even have this agreement" replies. I guess it's time for another month away from here, we'll see
  10. While I never had dealings with him, I do remember reading (and often agreeing with) his posts here on the forums. I will second DarkkHero's /salute and make a motion that he should be immortalized similar to Yoko in VT, proper placement would be up to those that knew him of course In case I don't say it enough: Thank you to ALL the staff (past, present and hopefully future) for all the work you guys did/do/will do to keep our community alive
  11. it all depends on your play style. Pre-wipe I played a JS as my main, and did pretty good, post-wipe my JE's been my main and my JD's my secondary. This time around I've found that I depend on the shield leech/energy leech skills and when I play my JS solo I run out of energy (a problem I didn't have when my JS was my main). If I could remember what I did differently pre-wipe I'd share it, but I do still like my JS, she just has to travel with either the JE or JD.
  12. My JE completed the mission with Build Devices 1. Unless things have changed since the mission was put in, that's not a prerequisite
  13. thank you Zackman! Your assistance is very much appreciated
  14. just tried /gc makeleader <Name> Didn't work for me, keep getting in chat box "Guild: Invalid command." I've tried grouping with my intended "heir to the throne", I've tried targeting him, I've tried removing the space between gc and makeleader, I've even tried going to Net-7.org to see if maybe the command to promote to Founder was there now, I don't know what else to try
  15. Somewhere in a closet I've got a Compaq Armada M700, it plays the game as long as you don't leave the station. Beyond that I've got a couple laptops bought from pawn stores, most are slowish but can handle the game
