Re: Saint Paddys Day

Well Rill, let me return the favor and answer your limerick with another limerick, too (i also declare this to be my counting entry): At Reid’s Inn, there’s a popular quest For a ring, robe, and hat, it’s the best. But beware of the dead, They will fill you with dread Of becoming a permanent guest. ...

Re: Saint Paddys Day

Hocus wrote a Limerick,
that had quite some oomph and kick,
but Rill did not like it much,
because it was lame and such,
Hocus cried till he was sick.

The sprites of Hocus

I (seldomly) make new sprites and it has become small collection by now. (Note to self: Spritesheets partly waste a lot of space for empty frames, also at least spawn animations would be enough in one direction, no need for 8 different ones in future i think) To make them more visible i will collect...

Re: [WIP] Vectorial Emotes

TMW is a pixel game. I know it is kinda modern to incorporate vector graphics (and text) into pixel art "retro" games. I personally find them to be quite harsh breaks in style. In a pixel game to not break style there is imho one important rule (well, several, but this is to me the most im...

Re: Some thoughts about development and the "evil dev phenomenon"

0) I would intentionally omit names and some details to (try to) to keep that "failure analisys" instead of "attacks". Idea is to try to brainstorm on some problems instead of just blaming each other. Its also a bit more community/player centric view, but because of my backgroun...

Some thoughts about development and the "evil dev phenomenon"

There is a (not so new) phenomenon where (some) players and staff members get quite angry (and sometimes quite rude tbh) about unpopular development decisions (e.g. - but not limited to - nerfs). There also seems to be a misconception about who is in charge of the games content and mechanics: The id...

Re: What's a Party?

And why share exp with the runner this way all players loose a great amount of exp since the runner can't hit mobs to activate the bonus so it makes no sense to make a exp share party with a runner. Beside that this is imho a quite egoistic way of thinking (why do care for support classes if i am d...

Changes to Betsanc, Asorm, Runners, and all support magic No longer work on non-party members. When used, causes the timestamp and magic used to be recorded (including #itenplz) If any party mate kills a monster nearby and you used support magic (based on timestamp), you receive a bonus experience ...

Re: [Legacy] Merge WW into upstream?

Oh btw: HoraK also voiced some other concerns he hated, e.g. he wasnt happy of XP sharing on Evolved. And when HoraK isnt happy of smth around gameplay and mechanics IMO its worth of consideration, he's quite a fan of MMORPGs and game mechanics expert, that's what so nice when he also dev who hangs...
