    Incompatible version of Net-7 Proxy

    No, we didn't retain this after we got to a stable multiplayer mode.
  2. Hi Lquan, Can you register this in the bug tracker instead for us? I see that it is not working as you described. We'll have to debug. I would assume something's been added to the sector that is causing an issue with it being read in.

    Where has everyone gone?

    If someone wants to write up that clear concise guide for current operating systems, we'll put it up there. It's pretty easy. We rely on the pinned threads in tech support so we can post back if there are questions (and of course when we're available)

    forgot EA game log in password....

    Check the tech support guides that go through set up they are pinned at the top, you are pointed at the wrong .exe with your launcher if that's happening.
  5. Try telling one about 300 baud modems and VCRs and/or Beta Max.

    Open Discussion to EA about EnB

    Nothing to do with EA, we (the board of directors for net-7) decided it was in our best interest to close source and approach it from the standpoint of eventually releasing clean binaries to others and reserving the source to people who would develop with us. The reason for it was mostly driven by some problems with ex-team members who were trusted being given access that allowed them to download code then they tried to fork everything to another site/another emulator etc. We didn't want that to kill the emulator. We will eventually release some of this to the public as these binaries you can run but the reality is with the construction right now it wouldn't be easy for your average user to set this up. You need several servers to make things all work together how they are.

    So You Want To Be A Game Developer?

    I have posted a new article on the Facebook page, we are actively seeking additional content developers who meet the requirements listed. Please contact the page or myself directly via PM if you think you meet the requirements. Since this is one of the most often asked questions: You do not need to know how to write programs to do this job.

    Where has everyone gone?

    It can be done in Linux if you want to run an emulator for Windows services like Wine etc. We have a fork in our code base where we started to see about retrofitting toward a Linux server but ultimately there are parts of it we weren't for sure how to translate and the effort would only provide minimal improvement at best. Linux makes a hell of a web server and even some other things, but it's not the tool for every job. That being said much like another post I made, we may provide thoughts, you might pique our curiosity and otherwise but when it comes to issues most of such would be on the person looking to toy with Linux since we've not tried it a huge amount ourselves from a play point of view.
  9. This thread is locked. I can see it is going nowhere. Next time, if you have a problem with what I've written in a PM, you can take it up directly with me. It is very simple. Mangled language is not something that is conducive to good gameplay. I'm sorry you don't want to recognize this, but we've had much much worse in the past and it led to constant GM tickets because people couldn't understand the language because we had so many different writers of various languages. If you see the link that I posted, where most of your OP is taken from, you'd have seen by keeping reading it that they tell you precisely the same thing. You want to communicate effectively and be understood, which is what someone told you above. Anyway, if you want to be a content developer you have to be able to write fairly fluently in English as most of the players are English speakers, and for that matter a majority of the player base. Missions/quests can be confusing and misleading enough without fairly well-written dialog

    Volunteering -- wanted? how to?

    Mouli, as I said, send me something in private. I don't take them in public. I may have some questions etc. With regard to security, *shrug* it's highly important in this day and age. Content hasn't rolled out much this year due to my crazy work schedule which has recently changed leading to what I describe for January in another post. Mimir, We already have something that takes player/guild submitted icons for your ship wings. With respect to 'mission area,' this sounds like somewhat needless bureaucracy I would say just show me you can write a piece of dialogue that doesn't suck in a PM if you're interested. This is really most of what mission writing is. The dialogs and applying special conditions and tags that represent what you know as what you have to do, and what rewards you receive for doing so and doing so with responsible levels and not trying to give outlandish rewards, keep them in sync with other missions around the same level and as you do so you have to be able to follow the high-level story and generate appropriate stories and content to meet those goals in addition to some of your own here and there as long as it fits and you get some peer or sr. approval for quality control. We've had a past history of people getting on the team and really causing problems without being caught, I'm sure you've noticed with the state of the economy which is incredibly heavy on our minds. Without a thriving economy and market there's little to motivate some of the rest of the game.

    GUI tools that communicate through a web service to authenticate an authorized developer's access to the development server database. Very few can actually make direct changes to sunrise itself. re: trust.. Don't take it badly. I don't just trust anyone. It's my nature as an admin and leader etc. In order to keep things secure and on a track, not every joe can get access to things. You have to show me interest and show me what you can do, I generally ask for a PM describing what you think you can do for us. The high level guidelines would be for a given story arch, making them public would ruin any story advancement before you got to play it and see it. There's plenty of story left to use which we're working on. We can develop whatever after that, but we are mostly sticking to everything we had from the original game until that is done before we do anything completely and totally original as we'd have to write some high levels for that. Most of our developers have no idea about programming. there are only a few of us who do and we develop the server & tools for the developers to use to get the content created and things done to meet requirements. See above, send PM etc, about joining up or if you've sent one to me in teh past freshen it up.

    Where has everyone gone?

    I should imagine the population count probably ties to the relatively dry atmosphere when it comes to the rains of content. Although, I'm setting up a bunch of changes to tools and we've been working on some other things that should go through in January sometime. We're breaking backs to get there, but I think it'll probably help to bring some life back.

    You wouldn't be able to log into them unless you were already on the team. It doesn't work any other way. That said, trust me, anyone can use them. The question is can you write compelling stories/dialogue and come up with inventive things to do that fit high-level guidelines and help advance and the overarching story.
