I have been working on a game in my free time that is web based for those times when you cannot play a real 3d game (ie, work, school). Anyways, I know there are a lot out there but I have some cool things planned. The bad part is that I am horrible and graphics and the pretty design stuff (ask Storm or Sobe sometime). So, excuse the lack of prettiness for now and let me know what you think.

i think the toggle for auto heal isn't working, tweil.... i tried to turn it off, but keep getting less denaro and healthy knights

tweil

Yeah, the automatic job that resets the heal and cost is turned off right now. As far as what your doing...hmm, what do you need help with?

I suppose as the game stands now you fight, level up your knight(s) and get top rankings. I'll probably do an invitational tournament to those that are playing just to see how it all turns out.

Future:
I have quite a bit planned. The problem is I need to know if the interest is there before wasting hours of my time coding a silly little game that no one plays.

Some possible ideas:
-Crafting system
-Betting system (partial implemented for tournaments)
-Roguely activities (skimming from bets, hosted tournaments, ...)
-Guids
-Feats/Abilities
-Better AI system

I guess that's some of the ideas, but I am open to anything.

Too, it looks like the Silver Tipped Lance has lower stats than the rusty lance. or is lower better?

Sometimes the temple requires 0 money form me to heal someone.

As far as your time involved... if it's fun, it's not wasted. /cackle I seriously don't know if people are checking it out or not, but i think i see a new noble every few days. I've enjoyed poping in there every other day or so to check out what's going on, and unseat a few of the competetor's knights.... /cackle

how did i earn more points for my knights stats? and does the 'learn' button under abilities do anything yet (like, do i need 500 points in the ring to learn something, or is there nothing to learn yet?)

horse apparently makes a huge difference in the adjusted attack and adjusted grip... i bought a third horse (twice as expensive as the other two) and those two stats went up a ton.

tweil

Yay! Atleast someone is trying it.

Currently the learn button does nothing, at some point its for learning of feats.

Silver Tipped Lance has a much higher chance of causing critical damage.

0 cost healing sometimes happens right after an automatic job goes and resets all the costs associated with automatic healing.

By fighting in Tournaments, the Ring, and the Field (in that order) you gain points based on the type. You get a certain number of points that translate into ability points. I can't remember the formula off the top of my head =(

Horses help with both attack and ability to hang on. The faster the horse the more str it will provide (think of the momentum).

Rank Name Wins Ties Loses Winning % Points KPR
1 Tweil 84 58 98 35 513 2.14
2 Test2 68 38 122 30 433 1.9
3 Alyn 68 13 20 67 311 3.08
4 Testy 52 30 54 38 306 2.25
5 Ola Magnell 36 16 16 53 191 2.81

Looking at the stats, my winning percent is crap =( In some tournaments I think i have it so they are ranked by KPR, stength of opponents, or over all wins. That way in some tournaments you would probably be ranked higher Alyn then Tweil ("Tweil the ugly" is the win!)

i don't think i've beaten tweil the ugly yet... =/ tweil the light, tweil the first, and that other tweil are no match for my knights, however!

For the most part he is just barely winning against you. I've noticed you were #2 knight in rankings and have a better win percentage too.

Alyn- STOP PLAYING! You are gaining on Tweil the ugly a little too quickly now. Also, I noticed in his logs that some knights are winning against him =(

The tournament was just ran and there was a suprising outcoming.

Simon, ranked 6th to begin with won over naked to take home the first tournament title and award. Simon's noble now posess the Ivory Etched Buckler and the the option to pick a title.

Alyn, congrats and let me know what you want =)

hey twiel, i love the new interface on the knight's pages, but when i'm at this point:

Summary Stats Abilities Equipment Profile History

Sighman
Ring Stats
Wins Losses Ties Win % NonLoss %
31 4 5 78 90
Knight Rankings
Date Point Rank Average Opp KPR KPR Rank Opp Rank
04.15.04 11 108 10 7 8

and i click on any other tab across the top i get this message: You are not allowed to view other Nobles Knights.

i'm'a thunk that's a bug, right? or did i not pay enough attention to them and they revolted on me while i was busy at work? /cackle

tweil
04-15-2004, 05:41 PM
Oops...fixed that. With my account I can see anyone's knights so I didn't notice the bug.

I have been struggling with the Interface, I think the tabs should help some.

Yay me! More features added along with two new armor sets. In the knight's section of the Field you can now view their stats as they would be in a match.

hey twiel, i think the new breastplate is charging 1500 gold instead of the 500 listed. i bought 3 of them and it took 4500gold!

'nother bug... least i think it's a bug. in 'practice' you are only supposed to run x -v- y once every five minutes, but if you, say have three knights, as i do, you can run

x -v- y
x -v- z
y -v- x
y -v- z
z -v- x
z -v- y

all in the same five minute timeframe.... how it's set you can change the top and bottom names and duel the same two over again.

Thats my dear Mandoralaen you are talking about, isn't he a sweetie? Everytime I see him I swoon at those rippling muscles.

/cackle

And I just made the same mistake, bought 5 copper breastplates for 12500 instead of 2500. Now I have negative cash :(

Ruh oh, I'll take a look at that and gladly refund you both

tweil
04-17-2004, 05:20 PM
I just gave everyone 10k cash until I can track down the problem. Also, Alyn I noticed your knights are currently visiting the temple (autoheal). Was this on accident?

Damn the new knights!!!! Damn them to smell like horse crap! Tweil the ugly got his butt handed to him way too many times today.

I blame it on the innoruuk servers which were down for over 12 hours, and the subsequent 12 hours waiting for my lost items and xp petition to be answered by a gm.

On the other hand, I always knew mimbrate knights were good, especially the Mandor family, but I never realized they were THAT good. /giggle

For the few of you who play, two questions

1.) Do you use profiles? If not why?
2.) Should I continue work or start over with a better direction?
