Re: respawning in crypt

I assume this means you're still using 1 vit and low luck? :lol: 27 VIT and 1 LUK. Still, I'm not someone who always grind in crypt so I have no interest in warrior like builds. It was me that prompted this change and I play in the crypt very often. That's a more important change than sounds and gr...

Re: respawning in crypt

Another change that got people pissed off. Why you still fail at learning from previous failures?
Why keep changing a game you rarely play at all without even asking what community thinks about your ideas?
How can I be motivated contributing to a game that's getting disliked like that?

Re: Event: Blanc's Trial

That stuff doesn't work on this vegan computer and I can't even open that video. So I cloned https://cgit.themanaworld.org/launcher/renpy/ and launched it. It complains that there's no graphic acceleration despite ManaPlus actually worked nicely for years here. So, I got this launcher using twice th...

Re: Markets rant: On the facilitation of trade

There are multiple issues in TMW Classic that make trade needlessly difficult. And it's going to be hard to get rid of them. ManaPlus got some sort of shop mode. Something very easy to setup but still it requires a player to be online (not AFK) and must carry merchandise. Trade requests are some so...

Re: [REQ] Web flow

If I try to think like a n00b I find hard to seek a link that allows me to skip all the boring chattering, things, stories, whatever and go downloading a working client immediately as I enter themanaworld.org. There's no shortest path from search engine to start playing. I understand that this proje...

Re: [REQ] Web flow

I'm not updating ManaPlus since a lot of time but I always managed to get it from: https://manaplus.org/ Manaplus is deprecated and no longer the official client since 4144 left TMW. He hasn't updated it since 2021 and I don't think he will ever update it since he was pretty much done with TMW. htt...

Re: [REQ] Web flow

It seems we have a big technical debt and many design issues with our way to download a client for TMW Classic. An user has to go through classic.themanaworld.org to wiki.themanaworld.org to manaplus.germantmw.de and then choose from a list of file the right folder. I'm not updating ManaPlus since ...

Re: Revolt support (not the same)

I don't like it due to their service providers but, compared to discord, is a better alternative.
Personally, I prefer this one: https://tox.chat/
I had fun years ago with Mumble too.
I'm curious to see what community thinks about it...

Re: Enable automatic shop trade completion on Manaplus

Any resolution on this? What does Wellwin use for Lya? I bet it's a slightly modified M+, since I saw him move her around. No. Wellvin is using ManaChat only with shop plug-in so he relogs with M+ to move the bot and then launches ManaChat again. (manaboy plug-in is required to move bot and some ot...

Re: [WIP] Vectorial Emotes

I like the idea as M+ awfully scales up to larger resolutions. By the way I'm worried for client performances on less modern computers so I wonder if it's possible to keep having both raster and vector formats on graphics. Even if this isn't limited to the emotes, I believe vector graphics can punch...

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

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

Oh c'mon. Mistreating the dev after they fixed the bug, and hoping it doesn't say "we don't appreciate your work, begone"? I'm not aware of what happens in dev team. All he ever says is how I am killing TMW, in private and in public, when I try to do my best to help TMW. And you expect me...
