I'm not convinced yet that it'll stick around for long, but I suppose it wouldn't cost me anything to go ahead and start archiving.

And I have deconstructed Gaia games but the backend has proven too much for me to understand. Alas. I am but a novice front end designer with no understanding of networking related programming. gonk

Ugh! No thanks. Expecting them to respond itself would be too much. Let alone expecting them to help. Mav is the only dev I know who'll actually give you the time of the day. Too bad he's an artist though. xp

In any case, my project will be ready soonish but since you're not on skype I would also have to create a tutorial before I can share it with people here on Gaia. surprised

Oh, ah. Well. I happen to be working on a "project" and I was hoping for a way to let Gaians "interact" with this project using their currently equipped avys. Only one problem though. I do not know the code that displays your avy in for example "a flash space". Closest I've gotten to is something that people sometimes put on their profiles. -> But this won't fly with flash since flash requires set images, not links. I was wondering if you'd know something about it. I was actually planning on contacting tekton(creator of tektek) about it but I changed my mind. Problem is that knowing the code would present it's own complications(such as how to deal with non-human avys etc), so I'm putting this on hold and continuing on with my stock avys. xp

We will have to replace all the NPCS in zOMG! You've already taken the first step by multitasking as a gnome and a Barton soldier. 3nodding

I believe you're right. I even did the math. Assuming you have enough stam for using a 100 attacks, and that there are 3 to 4 attack rings here but we're reserving the rage for hack attacks, and that one rage bar fills up every 5 attacks. So that gives you 20 r2 attacks that you can perform or 6-7 r4 attacks. surprised

That's 180x80(r1) + 240x20!r2) = 19200 worth of damage for r2s and 180x93(r1) + 500x7(r4) = 20240 worth of damage for r4s. I guess I didnt realize that r4 attacks do more than double the damage that r2 attacks do. gonk
Felis Hircus Report | 10/02/2014 9:27 am
Hmmm... o 3o
Felis Hircus Report | 09/30/2014 9:02 pm
How do you figure? Are you implying that the time it takes to hold down the attack to charge an r4 attack somehow gives enough stam regen time that it'd be more efficient than using r2 attacks?

But for every r4 attack, you'd be using nothing but r1 attacks the remaining time until it's charged up again. You'd be able to use far less r4 attacks then before you run out of stam. Better a whole lot more r2 attacks instead.

Rings, Glitches, and Integrity

Greetings zOMG community!

As everyone knows, the intended maximum level for the game is 10 both for players and rings. Unfortunately, we've had a couple glitches in the game which, when combined, allowed players to gain access to rings which were not intended to exist. Using these glitches also allowed these players to exceed the maximum intended overall level or reach level 10 with some extra powerful rings and a level 1 fleet feet, etc. Lamentably, we've been incredibly short on resources and haven't had any development time to patch up the glitches. Fortunately very few players took advantage of these glitches to illicitly gain such rings. Still, we're sad if even one person is taking advantage of these glitches and gaining access to something illegitimate. We, as designers of the game, feel that this is not honest or fair behavior.

In addition, players who can instantly reach any level up to 18 have the ability to bypass any future content we create. This is a tremendous obstacle to new areas and new encounters. There's no way to balance a level 12 zone if people can start directly at level 12 rather than working their way through the zone. Thus, for game balance reasons as well as glitch exploitation, a remedy was necessary.

Various measures were discussed including banning accounts or removal of gold, total charge, orb, and loot gains made while in possession of illegitimate rings. We settled on a very lenient policy of allowing almost everyone who has exploited the glitches to keep their account and all gains from these rings except for the rings themselves. We've taken the following steps:

•The glitches that we know of to get rings over level 10 have been fixed

•Rings which have been gained illegitimately have been removed

•All those who were in possession of an illegitimate ring have been granted a new level 1 ring: Abuse Ring

•All those who had at least one level 10 ring but were not in possession of an illegitimate ring have been granted a new level 1 ring: Integrity Ring

Once again, I'm glad to say that only a very small percentage of the zOMG community engaged in the dubious behavior of gaining rings over level 10. We're proud that the community as a whole share our goals of a fun and fair game. We hope that you all enjoy the new Integrity ring. And to everyone: we're already in the testing phase of the new area so hold tight. Deadman's Shadow is approaching!
