Off-Topic / Leaving the team
« on: April 07, 2012, 05:51:01 PM »
Hello guys :)

I just wanna say goodbye to you all.
Thanks for spending so much time with me.
It was a nice time and I think we had some fun together.
But unfortunately I gotta leave the team.
The thing is:
Let´s be honest:
I´ve actually never really contributed anything except some lines of story.
And I admit my motivation to continue is very low..
I´m not really playing the game since months anyway.
The main reason for me to join was that I could speak english.
But, well..  ::)
That´s not a real reason. I think we all know that.
I really admire what you guys have done.
You put a lot work in here and I wish you the best for the future.
Lots of fun, luck and success!
I hope you understand.

Well, I didn´t change the driver or anything.
I tried around 15 times with OpenGL and same with Direct3D9, but suddenly I cannot reproduce the issue..

Story / Some new ideas for the main storyline
« on: April 02, 2012, 01:21:42 PM »
Hey :)
Sorry, I know I haven´t contributed anything in the last months.
And I admit it was due to my lazyness.
But well I think as we only have 1 scripter, it isn´t needed to post some new stuff every week anyway..

Ok, here we go:
I want to share some thoughts and ideas for the storyline that begins after "The Black Pits".
The next landscape is planned to be a sump.
Main enemies gonna be lichs.
Well let´s start:

After entering the sump we get to watch a group of slaves being mistreated by the lichs.
They pull heavy wagons. As the lichs are very numberous we decide rather not to attack.
We decide to follow them without being noticed.
As we reach the camp we eavesdrop the leader lich.
He instructs the others to bring the slaves to the bridge in the north where new workes are needed.
As the lichs leave we decide to have a look at the bridge in the north and try to follow them.
They have already left but the leader lich notices us and attacks us.
Luckily he is alone in the camp and we are able to kill him.
Which is a pity because we could have get more informations through him and plus everyone knows there´s something wrong as soon as his corpse is found.
So we decide to search for the bridge.
Doing so we pass a little camp citizied by humans.
They have made it to escape from the lichs hands and hide here.
They support us with weapons and armor.
[...]

Well, so far, this is the beginning of what I have thought of.
This is the way it leads to the first city.
What do you think?

Is the conept good/fitting?

Well I am using the free Avast aswell.
And I cannot reproduce your warning.
Download is fine, if I scan the sumwars folder no problems found aswell.

Dunno, but the date of post is curious to me ;)
Honestly, is this supposed to be some kind of april fool?

I´m using an APU ^^
A8-3870, the GPU is an HD6550D.
But it´s a bit complex with the drivers and the APUs :/
There still is some unsolved bug for the APUs in the driver..
I´m using Catalyst 12.1.
I think I´ll try 12.3 when it´s out.

Well, I´m gonna try out to reproduce the problem with directx as graphics engine.
But it could also be a graphics driver prob, I dunno..

I´m using the official 0.5.6 release (the windows portable).
Graphics settings:
Fullscreen, 1280x1024
Shadows: Simple (Higher Quality)
Graphics Engine: OpenGL

As I said, it seems to happen randomly..

Hey.

I found some strange phenomen:
Sometimes (not always! seems to happen randomly..), when I try to start the game by clicking on singleplayer, the game freezes with the menu bars and the cursor in front of a black screen and if I go into Taskmanager then, I get a message my driver died and got recovered. (I kill the game then.)
So far, I´m only Lvl 4 and I´m always starting in Medair, so it shouldn´t depend on the location.

Is this a known bug?

Well, actually I´m still busy with finding the right voltages for my A8-3870 Llano APU.
I had many other problems aswell. But the system stands now, only thing missing is the correct potion of undervoltage :)

But I hope, I´ll get that fixed soon 8)

Hello :)

Sorry for still being abscent.
I´m still having trouble with my new system.
But I hope I´ll get it all fixed soon, so I can help here again.
kalimgard is very busy atm, too, so the story part is sleeping a bit at the moment anyway.

Story / Re: Green orchid
« on: January 22, 2012, 01:37:09 PM »
Ok, I´ve added the choice wether to take the quest or not.
But I dunno about the other things. It´s really hard to work out a dialouge for this, because it gets very repeative quickly.. I mean make some suggestions, I just don´t know what the people should say without saying the same everytime..

_____________________________________________




For the whole dialouge:

The trading persons won´t trigger a dialouge if we don´t have the item they want.
That will make it a bit more difficult for the player to solve the quest. Because else it´s just talking.


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Reba:

Reba: Hey there, passenger. Look at my beautiful flowerbed! Oh I´d so love to see a green orchid in it..

Choice:
[No time for flowers]
[Maybe I can help you]

if [Maybe I can help you]

You: Hm, you´re pretty. I´ll look around. If I find one, I´ll give it to you.
Reba: {1} Wow, thanks! You are so nice to me, here, take this hat.
You: {2} No problem, lady.

if [No time for flowers]

You: Sorry, I have no time for flowers now.

-> After: Choice
[Changed mind]
[Never mind]

if [Changed mind]

You: Ok, I´ve changed my mind. I´ll look around for an green orchid. If I find one, I´ll give it to you.
Reba: {1}
You: {2}


_____________________________________________________________

After that:

Talking to Reba:

if we have not got the orchid:

Reba: Have you found an green orchid?
You: Nah, I´m stilll searching, sorry.

if we have got the orchid:

Reba: Have you found an green orchid?
You: In fact, I did. Here, take it.
Reba: Greaaat! Thank you! How can I thank you? Oh, I know. My father once gave me this amulet. But I cannot use it.
Take it as a sign of my gratitude.
You: Thanks, I´m sure I can well use it.

Talking to Eric:

You: You kinda look depressed. Is there something wrong with you?
Eric: Yeah, I just lost my hat.. And I need it, else my head´s getting burnt from the sun. But I don´t know where I can take
a new hat from now..
You: Bah, I got this useless hat here.. Wanna have it?
Eric: Thanks! Here, take this old scholar scroll for the hat.


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Thomas:

You: Hey, you look like a scholar.
Thomas: Indeed, I am a scholar. What do you want?
You: I got this old scholar scroll here. Do you have a use for it?
Thomas: For god´s sake! This is.. No, this can´t be real. But it is..
You: You can have it. Just take it.
Thomas: Thanks, stranger! That´s a very important tile in my puzzle. Take this mosaic, it´s useless to me, but it looks beautiful.


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Major Chabbyl:

Chabbyl: Hello. What do you have there? Is that a mosaic?
You: Bah, I guess so, why? You can have it, if you want, it´s useless to me..
Chabbyl: Thank you. Here, take this journal. I don´t understand it anyway.


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Araziar:

You: Hey, you look like a mage. Could you use this journal here? I´d sell it to you..
Araziar: Yes, I am a mage. Though I won´t buy your little book. But what about some little swap?
You: What would you give me for it?
Araziar: What about this little statue of Harad?
You: Hm, I kinda like it. He looks so small and cute there. Ok, deal!


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Fenizia:

You: Wow, that´s a nice mountain crystal there! Do you sell it?
Fenizia: No. But I like the little statue of Harad you got there. I wouldn´t mind swapping..
You: Ok, why not. Here you have.


_____________________________________________________________

Talking to Simon:

You: Hey, that flower there on the table. Is that a green orchid?
Simon: Yes, why do you ask?
You: Would you mind selling it?
Simon: Are you crazy? I won´t sell something as special as this.
You: You want something special? What about swapping your green orchid against my mountain crystal?
Simon: Well, that´s special at least. Ok, take the damn flower and give me that crystal!
