Re: Options that shouldn't be

I think the goal of simplified options isn't a bad one; a new, one-page "most common settings" tab could be default for manaplus, with a checkbox to enable the current advanced settings. I'm against Ledmit's suggestion to remove client-side settings/options for reasons Hello gave. I do agree with in...

Re: Dark Theme

I'm sorry if commenting on old posts is unwelcome here, but this theme is extremely good. It's a simple dark alternative to blacknblack with two immediately apparent and major improvements: The theme doesn't use saturated colors. Gui elements in an rpg benefit from not competing with colorful satura...

Re: swimming

Swimming without redoing sprites could just display above-waist in shallow water and only head (or head+shoulders) in deep water (i.e. not transparent water)

Re: [LEGACY] Making changes that affect game balance

It's hard to be confident about what's appropriate. I felt griding for Gingerbread Men took too long. I also felt grinding for Cobalt Herbs for dying blue clothes took too long, until i found a corner in the north that spawned lots of squirrels. Overall though it seems current quests take an appropr...

Re: Does speedskill actually do something?

Thank you Horak for helping me get Speed skill. Now i'm not sure I see the difference in speed either.

I am Lvl 61 archer, Speed is focused and Lvl: 4. What difference in firing rate should i see? Walking?

Re: Multiboxing rule clarifications

Would a rule like 'Players are not allowed to run multiple characters engaged in combat (including combat support) or sharing combat experience.' be more specific to the behavior you want to prevent? I could picture one character engaged in combat / questing while another is sitting idle in some soc...

Re: General Troubleshooting Thread

I just have to say things work great here :) Real solid. Now UI-wise there's a lot of tweaks to Manaplus I could think of. Like keyboard support would make transferring to/from storage way faster. Arrow keys around inven, enter to select, type number to transfer. No extra steps. Mousing around for t...

Re: I don't like Hurnscald Grass

Hiya! I was playing with grass shades myself for a while. The ManaPlus client makes it easypeasy to tweak any game assets you like and just drop it in an override directory. You can batch adjust contrast/hue of grass tiles or tweak any you like with Gimp! I was just playing with addon shaders for SD...

Pastrami Massacre! [and other sounds]
