  1. The server has now been officially closed. Thank you again to everyone that played the server! The main website (and wiki) will be closed soon, after I've updated the login system, but as mentioned the forums will remain open for the foreseeable future.
  2. I could use more artists (it's just myself + one artist to start out), but obviously as with any startup, tight budget. Granted I do eventually need a proper 2D lighting system as well (Unity's is useless in its current state), but that's for a future project, so not any time soon. The vast majority of my favourite games have been RPGs, or at least have had RPG elements, so that'll probably be reflected in the games we end up making. :P What we actually end up doing down the road heavily depends on how successful we are though; in theory the dream would be to work on games like MHW, Skyrim, Kenshi, etc, but that would require an enormous amount of money (a lot of employees), so we'll be starting simple, most likely a platformer/RPG hybrid to start with, and working our way up from there.
  3. This will be my official exit from the RO development community, so I don't have any plans to open another server in the future. I'll be putting my focus into my main career goal of starting a game development studio now, with plans to start working full time on that within the next couple months. I'd definitely be open to joining any Discord servers that are made to keep in touch with the community, and I do plan to keep the Poring Burgers server up for the foreseeable future as well. I did actually consider this recently lmao, not buying it out entirely but the idea of getting an official license to run a server in the future. It's probably unlikely that they would ever allow an official server to be highly customized like this one though. That and I'm intending to focus primarily on solo and coop games, so it's unlikely that I'll ever work in the MMO space again, at least within my current plans. I won't rule it out entirely though. :P
  4. Hi everyone. To skip right to the main point, the server will be closing on May 15. I'm not sure on the exact time of day that the server will be closing yet, but likely either the middle of the day or in the evening, depending on what my schedule looks like on the day of. Over the last several months I've been paying the server costs out of my own pocket; I was happy to do this for the players that still enjoyed the server, but unfortunately it's reached a point where it's no longer financially viable for me to continue doing so, as the server has very little income while still having the same expenses as before. If you've purchased Donation Credits in the last 30 days and would like a refund, please feel free to message me and I'll process it for you. Also, for those that may want to grab images of their characters, keep in mind that the main website will also be closed shortly after the server, including the sprite renderer module. The forums will be kept up for a while longer; I currently have no planned date for closing them, but if there are any posts you want to keep it would be a good idea to save them sooner rather than later just to be safe. Thank you to all of the players that supported the server and helped it grow over the years, and to the many members of the staff team throughout the server's life that helped keep it running.
  5. Hey everyone, just a reminder that the annual Christmas promo is coming up! All payments received between December 24, 00:00 - January 2, 23:59 will receive a 50% bonus in Donation Credits. This is calculated separately from the bulk purchase bonuses, so for example a payment of $25 will give you 2500 + 1250 + 250 = 4000 total Donation Credits. The amount will also be listed on the donation page before you confirm the amount. If you have any questions please feel free to let me know! Merry Christmas!
  6. Hi, as explained last year's February update, server development is actually on hold at the moment. I've done a couple smaller updates since then when I've had the extra free time, but for the time being I need to focus on my other obligations/career and my personal health. I would like to come back to active development at some point when I have the time to do so, but I'm not certain when that might be, so for the time being the server will remain mostly in its current state, though still available for anyone that wants to play it.
  7. Just to clarify, the AnomalyRO Settings app also uses OpenSetup (it opens it when you click Graphics Settings). The resolution override in our custom settings app is for specific cases where OpenSetup doesn't properly set the resolution / doesn't list the resolution you want. @Rigonna89, you mentioned trying to run full screen at a lower resolution; unfortunately, this isn't actually possible - when full screen (or borderless mode) is enabled, it'll automatically set it to your screen resolution. The resolution settings currently only work for windowed mode. Right now the only way to play on a higher resolution screen is using windowed mode at up to 1920x1080. I did try looking for a way to override this in the past but I wasn't able to find a solution that actually worked; it seems pretty hardcoded in the client.
  8. The 7 drops refer to the castle drops that are used to create epic gears; these are the 50 weight Misc items that drop exclusively from the chests in the castle treasure rooms. You can use any combination of them, so for example you could use 7 Emblem of the Sun God, or you could use 3 Emblem of the Sun God and 4 Sinew of Bear, etc. Emblem of the Sun God can also be obtained from the Battlegrounds Shop for 250 BG Tickets, though this is typically slower than getting it from castles, so it's mainly just there as an alternative for players that have no interest in WoE and can't buy the drops from players.
  9. You can see all of the epic gears (along with their effects) on the Epic Gears wiki page. :o Each item also links to the website database page for it in case you want to check additional details like the weight or effect script.
  10. You can find the correct coordinates on the iRO Classic wiki page. By default iRO Wiki shows Renewal information, which sometimes uses different coordinates for the NPCs; since we're a Pre-Renewal server the iRO Classic wiki will have more accurate information. :o
  11. As mentioned in the Server Rules, macros and other third party cheating tools are against the rules. Champions (and other classes) are entirely playable without the use of macros.
  12. Hi everyone! Very small update today since it's primarily just to fix a bug with how the Freyja's Ascent loot system was set up. I've also included a minor update, which should make it easier for players that are looking for specific weapons, to compensate for the issue. You can access this new option by speaking to Tanya in Caspen and selecting "Loot Settings." Server Updates Update: Freyja's Ascent now has a Loot Settings option that allows you to disable up to 3 weapon types from the chests (this also affects instance completion rewards) Update: Slightly increased some of the individual rare sword rates in Freyja's Ascent to compensate for their larger weapon pool Bugfix: Fixed a bug in Freyja's Ascent that prevented some rare weapons from dropping in some cases
  13. Just an update on this, I've looked into it further and it seems there was a different bug (unrelated to this update) that prevented some weapons from dropping; I'm working on a fix right now and will also be making another change to make it easier to get specific items to compensate for this. Basically you'll be able to disable 3 weapon types that you don't want, which will increase the chances of getting one of the weapon types you do want instead.
  14. You probably have a Lesser Elemental Ring equipped, which autocasts a few random skills; if you unequip the ring it should stop happening. :o
  15. I'm a little unsure what you mean by the last part, but Combat Knife should be set up correctly in Freyja's. There's 3 other rare daggers and Combat Knife is a slightly rarer drop than the others (Combat Knife is a 20% chance IF the chest has already rolled to drop a rare dagger), so it is pretty hard to get one, especially if you're running the instance solo. Running it with a party will increase the chance of rare drops depending on the party size. Keep in mind that if you're only looking for one weapon, it's likely going to take quite a while to get it. There's a lot of possible drops, and if you've only unlocked one rare drop, the others will simply result in a common drop if they get rolled (for example, if you've only unlocked Combat Knife, and a chest rolls a Poison Knife, it'll just give you a common drop). I'm still open to tweaking the instance more, of course, though any rate adjustments would need to keep in mind that some people may be farming for more than one type of weapon (which would greatly increase their chances of getting at least one of the weapons they want in a run).
