Re: RIP Guild Website

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is safe and sound :)

Just a heads up that i've fixed the old website (ripguild.uphero.com) so that flash isn't required anymore.

Didn't want the old website to be unusable...

I do miss the old days, hope one day Drakkar takes off again!

Be safe,

-Rathe_RIP

Re: RIP Guild Website

Hi Everyone, With the donation of data collected by Ken we now have a dynamic map that is tied to the in-game "Raid-" command for Nork, Majorin and Cobrahn. If you type " raid -" in game, you get a response similar to this: (00.00.0518.53) (128,50,1)-(50) Ignore the 1st line and the 2nd line has (X,...

Please remember this data is about 14 years old and may be inaccurate due to changes. I also have a massive collection o...

FrontEnd Suggestions

Hi, Just a few suggestions to improve usability of the game interface. Add a "Keep on Top" button to the lobby windows. Including the PM windows. This would allow us to pin the lobby and chat windows over the Drakkar game window. Move combat message window into its own floating resizable window with...

Re: Origin (and current status) of RIP?

Hi guys, I still have a copy of the old ripguild.com website backed up if anyone wants to revive it. I stopped paying for the domain about 1 year after I left for WoW. Of course, some squatter snagged it and wants a ransom, $2400 if you can belive it! :) Can't say I remember the orgins of RIP, playi...

Re: Devices Tested

Yeah sadly there are no real threads in flash. What i'm considering doing is only doing "X" png->bitmap decompresses per second. This will force the air app to do a gui pass.

Pinning lobby on top of drakkar

For all you old MIRC users, A tool called "Desk Pins" works great for pinning the lobby windows on top of drakkar. You can find it here: www.snapfiles.com/opinions/DeskPins/DeskPins.html Works in XP and vista that I know of. Now if we only had private guild chat rooms in lobby...lol -Rathe_RIP

Guild PK

One of my favorite memories is when my guild back in the classic days all went on a firegiant hunt. When we were all in the lair everyone in those days usually typed their commands. So everyone typed "f fire". Oh, did I say my char used to be called " Firewraith "? :p Nothing like getting hit by 20 ...

Keep in mind the lobby already does a mini irc server. Brad are you talking about replacing that with a more robust chat engine?

I would love to see keyed channels, w/ kick rights to specific people, namable channels, etc.
