  1. Yeah the group invite system is really screwy if someone misses the invite (due to gating), or logs with a pending invite and now the group can't invite anyone new. Also I've seen times where /invite fails wiht the message 'you are not in a group'. DUH, thats why I'm trying to invite someone. Get in targeting range of them and click on the 'invite' button and it works fine. Maybe a slash command to rescind an invitation if someone didn't accept it -- like say /uninvite ? And even if they do have a pending invitation, /group accept doesn't always work.
  2. Net-7 Launcher can launch the Character & Starship creator from its tools menu, but does not do so with the --noclassrestrictions option that enables the Scout, Seeker, and Privateer. Please add this. Prototype Reorder isn't checked on by default, and at this point it really should be. This is like the #1 new players question to turn it on, and it would make the game a lot more friendly to new players. -Zarg
  3. Well it took a couple of hours of rewriting macro code so I don't really need my XP box any more, other than for sentimental reasons.
  4. I too have an old Windows XP install that seems to no longer be able to get into the game. INV 300 errors at login. Looks like it might be the same issue. I keep it around because its my old box Iused to play on back in Live, and the AC tools and associated macros I wrote in AC tools seems to work best on it. I've done some porting effort for AC Tools on windows 7 but there's still issues. This machine literally does nothing but E&B & AC tools. So, are there no workarounds? Looks like its time to go through the Linux/Wine Install thread in the tech support forum...
  5. I'll have to check this out. Most of my macro code is in AC Tools, and it is really sensitive to screen/windows positions. So I either run it with E&B full screen or windowed in the default top-left starting position. But using something like this to get repeatable accurate locations of windows could fix much of that.
  6. Site is still there ; file is still there. You might have been experiencing temporary problems. There are a few other private mirrors of the file, and if needed I can u/l it to some other site. Even compressed its 3.0Mb in size, so too big to attach here.
  7. Trigger spawn permitting, we generally try to do the public raids at a time that has the most of the public available, which happens to be early evening for US/Eastern time zone. Sadly, that shuts out the players who are on off time zones like the Europeans and US-West coast (like me) or Asia. Sure you can push the raid to fit your schedule, but that just makes you selfish. Grow some flexibility. I did...
  8. About a week ago, Builders Inc invited the public to join them in a Red Dragon Base raid in their rotation week. It went well and there was much loot to be had. Its a punishing raid and often hard to find raiders willing and able to go due to Red Dragon faction requirement. I commend BI on inviting the public into their raid, and humbly suggest other of the 'big 3' do so as well in the future. Sorry to hijack this thread with something positive. Edit: Disclaimer -- I'm not from BI, but one of the general public that joined that raid.
  9. Server population is low; groups are rare but do happen. seems like a lot of people multibox for making their own levelling groups. Don't be shy to ask for help/advice in New Players channel. There are guilds that can help you in the leveling grind with gear and advice and assistance through rough parts.
  10. We're still here, welcoming any wayward souls who could use a guild to help guide them along their way.
  11. Looks like the maintenance in January cleaned this right up. Thanks a bunch!
  12. In the last week or so I and a number of other users have been seeing a lot of strange lockups in the game. The symptoms are that the game instance stops taking input. Can't target anything, can't move, can't log out via escape menu / Quit options. Interestingly you CAN send messages in various chat channels, but not see any of the responses. If you're multiboxing you can see the chat messages sent from the stuck client. Apparently if one waits long enough it sometimes recovers. The surest resolution is to use /quit and log back into the game, or kill game process through task manager and log back in. I thought at first it was most only happening to idle game sessions, but it happens to active ones too with less frequency. Ironically my game session just did the same lockup while I am writing this post. Are the Devs aware of this and do we have a hope of a fix? I have guild mates complaining it is disruptive enough in its frequency that it is making them not want to play.
  13. The dropbox.com link to the release.rar file containing geepee's binary-hacked client.exe no longer works. Fortunately I got a copy of it before it went down. I have put it back for upload. Link to the zip file and actual instructions are on my Damage Inc website at http://damageinc.cryptic.com/Patches.html. I did a binary diff of it against the original and it does indeed only have a small one-byte change. However I encourage you to use standard due diligence in scanning any binary executable downloaded from the internet. I've been using this patch for months now, and have never seen the 'Earth&Beyond is already running' on the PC running the patched client.exe.
  14. A couple of corrections and updates here: The base where you will find T2Z to start the mission line is on Primus Planet, not Primus moon as OP stated. The base is a former Progen base that has been renamed 1C4615H. You will not be able to dock there unless your V'Rix faction is -1999 or above. Grinding up V'Rix faction to get to this point can be a pain! I did it by a combination of chitin bits turnins to the oracle (chitin bits farmed by an a V'Rix hunting alt, 100 rep per 50 turned in) and hunting a LOT of InfinitiCorp and/or Bogeril faction ships -- as both of these factions can easily be recovered with item turnins. The "optional" mission for device builders to get the Ardus Key device pattern requires you to spend a million credits to get the artifact to analyze from the vendor in Net-7. Manufacture cost for the Aquitaine Codex device is another million credits -- trips to Ardus aren't cheap. The EnBmaps.de map page for Ardus is fairly accurate. 1Z1Z2L -- who you need to talk to to complete the mission line -- is near the AC160 nav point.
  15. Damage Inc. is still active and recruiting new members. We do fairly regular raiding now especially on weekends, and usually have a large contingent in the public raids. We have members from zones, from Europe to eastern Asia. I'm in US/Pacific time; you can find me online on Zargol or one of my many alts, or ask for us in New Players or General channel. Our other guild recruiters are available at earlier time zones. Hope to see you soon!
