Quote from: LoopDeLoop on Yesterday at 02:42 PMyeah bro. wondering karvo is easy to farm, and everyone will play sinx cuz of EDP damage. they were clever to make karvo hard to farm. bcs balancing peeps to play other class. this server is old, and stable. who give a damn with population? u can see the other server had a big population, but its just at the begining. maybe 1 year and half. peeps quit. and u can see how this server stood on big 10 in low rates?. theres a bunch of unique and good features. also gm was very helpful. theyre not ignoring player who havent donate or donated. its a good community.

Peak population on US nighttime? yeah, because most of players are from asia. and RO basically is asian MMO. is rare to see western playing RO. and some of players just play on weekends. get real, RO is old game. and talon is an old server too

Check out their incoming patch about Faceworm Instance where it drops Karvo once again. Is that a clever way to make karvo hard to farm? There are already a lot of ways to farm karvo in game just fyi LMAO. All of their patches are all nerf to other classes and just lowkey buffs to SinX. You can't deny it. Your GMs always saying that SinX patches are based on "Team Decision" amongst their staff. So maybe they are too good to realize how OP SinX is now. Try playing OGH Hard Route 2 where you fight Himmelz without SinX and look how miserable the party is. Of course it is doable but nothing compares when you have SinX on the party.

Also, there's a lot of reports about Twin Fang's (SinX Custom Weapon) bonus being too OP in PvP already. Soul Breaker with Ice Pick Effect and a Cloaking Skills that is not affected by PDFM. They fixed that today, and then they call it a "Bug"? Funny. They are just simply covering up one another in my own opinion.

They are now listening because they might realize server population is already decreasing day by day due to the server being stagnant. There's nothing new. No new instance, no new episode and very hard for a newbie to start on this server because of its dead economy. It lasted for 10+ years because of the community which is also becoming toxic now.

Like you said, it is an Old Game. We can't deny it. An Old Game, a very good server with good potential still even if its old, until they ruined it.

It has been 3 months, new discussion regarding this server should be put into a new topic. 
Given this is a server that is still alive and keep changing, old argument might need a validity check.

Locking.  Negativity and toxicity has been moved to junk yard.

The server was good, until people realized the GMs were not listening. They're only -listening- (doubt it) now, because they have no other choice, or they will die. For some of us, that's too late. I don't care if it's an old server, because they ruined the old server, so technically, it's NEW and *Improved*. Why wait for them to fix things when you can quit and find something worth your time? to each their own.

GOOD DAY!
I am having a hard time searching for a grf that simplified AoE skill effects like Storm Gust, Lord of Vermillion, Land Protection, etc. I was looking for a grf that shows AoE skill icons on the ground. I am not good in editing grf files. I would like to ask for your help with this by sharing some of your grf that is related to the topic. Thank you in advance!  /ok

This server is very disappointing now really. There's a lot of issues that they need to address and yet they are prioritizing in working on that FaceWorm Instance now. Just a lowkey buff to the SinX Class once again for farming Karvo (Which is a key ingr in creating Poison Bottle) and a new Garment which is actually super good for SinX class once again.

Whew! No wonder why everyday, people are quitting. Just last night, someone quitted and had a massive gears giveaway to everyone. Current server population now on a daily basis is around 620+ in the morning on SEA time and around 700 in the evening. 500+ is just an autovend. This is sad.

Server with a good potential. But now becoming a disappointment and stagnant.

yeah bro. wondering karvo is easy to farm, and everyone will play sinx cuz of EDP damage. they were clever to make karvo hard to farm. bcs balancing peeps to play other class. this server is old, and stable. who give a damn with population? u can see the other server had a big population, but its just at the begining. maybe 1 year and half. peeps quit. and u can see how this server stood on big 10 in low rates?. theres a bunch of unique and good features. also gm was very helpful. theyre not ignoring player who havent donate or donated. its a good community.

Quote from: Tangerine on Yesterday at 07:26 AMWhat bothers me is the "Some slightly sensitive information, but nothing too critical". It was the usernames + plain text passwords, and the home address / billing address of at least 24 different players who donated.

Also the leak was not closed in a few hours, it was still up until around 2 days ago.

That being said, I am glad it's been resolved, and I hope valuable lessons were learned.

Apart from the factual mistake that was made, I think the guy has good intentions deep down and truly wants to offer an immersive private RO experience that is bound to not be your typical average way, considering how uniquely different his project is from how most private servers are spun today. With that being said, I find his work to be admirable and it takes a lot of courage to pull projects like these with success. Praise aside, I think we all make mistakes at some point or time in our lives and the wonder of life is where one learns from mistakes in hopes of improving. I think Ornstein is now well aware of the concerns that were brought up and I too hope it was a lesson well learned.

I am looking forward to seeing how his new project's return spans out.

Wishing you good luck and have fun with your work process Orns.

P.S: Shoutout and thanks to the folks raising awareness regarding sensitive data being leaked.

Kind regards,
Ancient.

Ok so at least it's not just me who thinks he's insane for being so casual about leaking people's info.

On another note, there should be a trigger warning for the YandereDev code.

Quote from: yC on Jun 19, 2024, 07:13 PMThose that could be affected were notified individually.  So if you didn't get any notification, you shouldn't be worry or go back to the server's discord to ask Orstein if you are worried.


I downloaded the first version of the files without updating them. I do have a vision of the data leaked.
My data was leaked and I did not have any "individual notification" from Ornstein. I am just lucky enough to be here when it happened.

I get it, for safety reason you must use trash email and password for any private server. What bother me the most is that the password wasn't even encrypted, even though it's easy to do it.

Let's talk about it:
1. No vend, OC/DC and wanting a grand exchange:
Okay, what is the problem with no oc/dc? RO was a game where zeny wasn't given directly to the player, just items and it is balanced around that and the zeny dagger / mug skill is just a joke in the formula that prerenewal uses.
Grand exchange? I'm in, but prepare to see an incredible drop of autovends and a lot of "population crisis" because people sees numbers and thing blindly.

About masteries, adrenaline and those things: it's depends in the context and also the setup. Masteries are worthless in pre re if they aren't required for, changing them up won't fix their core problem, being little to no damage for free and also not doing something more.

Adrenaline feels a little off in 1st job, more if merchants are the only class that has it.

The frost diver pvm idea is cheese, you want to force everything to be water element just to use wind magic and beat up the game. Oh, but you are a frail mage class, well, you can vast fast enough to not get touched.

Rogue ganks with bow is the silliest idea I always hear and I main stalker, yes, I want to grab something from 10 tiles away because I need it (sarcasm).

I will stop here, don't feel like adding more of my time.
