All the suggestions are very much appreciated. We try to make the suggestions happen as much as we could but our resources are limited, and the most limited of all is time. Every month, because of full-time real life work commitment, I have just enough time for maintenance matters (patch note is my go-to place for monthly suggestions). This is why I pick only suggestions that are specific with details, that I can explain with clarity to GM.

 

If you said, for example, Card Girl's dialogues need to change, but you don't list the relevant Card Girls and their respective locations (even if you crafted the specific dialogues) - this would require I go look at all the Card Girls in the game. Things like this, it sounds simple, but under constraint of time, I will leave it out first to do simpler tasks - and then eventually this would fall out of my radar.

 

You can suggest monthly improvement (like how Hovado is doing with Tartarus - which I consider as an ongoing improvement project); pick a specific thing to improve; give enough details and clear instruction; include screenshots for visual clarity. Then do the same for something else next month. 

 

Simplicity and clarity is very much appreciated. The clearer you are, with as little words as possible, the better.

 

Other than time, I am operating under a communication handicap as well. English is not my first language. So, like Grug in The Croods says, "Big words anger me." Well, not angering me per se, just maybe make things difficult to understand. If I don't understand something, I can't explain it to GM. If I can't explain it to GM, it can't get done. And mind you, that is another big hurdle. GM's English is worse than mine. So everything that goes from me to him need to be stated in the maximum amount of clarity in the minimum amount of words. With that in mind, you need to feed me with very clear suggestions with the minimum amount of instruction that you can muster as well.

 

(Contrary to what I am requesting above, my explanatory posts tend to be long, I know. Please bear with me.)

 

I believe that this server has received and entertained so much more requests/suggestions from players than eTO ever did. This server, for me, is a labour of love. It has a small, niche player base, but a stubborn one that is seemingly very engaged with the game. People may go away from time to time, and then come back. Some do go away for good maybe; perhaps their lives have taken them into other spaces and other concerns. We do have a number of bad apples (the hackers, the botters, the scammers, the not-nice players) but these are the minority and I hope eventually they would become extinct as they grow to grasp the server's culture and understand how much we want to protect its integrity and atmosphere of respect for each other.

 

Thank you.

Thank you. 

 
Very informative and gives depth, insight, and scope of your work. I think you are severely underestimating yourself if you believe you're operating under a communication handicap, as your writing is coherent and void of verbal verbiage.
 
You mention that the main reason hindering the server's strive for improvement is because of time, which is a result of being understaffed. In my opinion, we need to tackle this from the root up. We need more volunteers, coders, and staff members that you are able to delegate your task to. If your work is seriously impeded by your real life obligations, as you say it is, then this is necessary in order to achieve more for the server and to mitigate the tremendous amount of work (and stress) piled on you. This way, we can maximize the improvement of our game and at the same time, allow for everyone's suggestion to be a possibility.

 

Just one area where I see that this is a huge issue is the expected response time of a message sent to the staff. I have personal bug reports and issues sent to the staff (Admin and moderators) and I have not received any replies for months. These are not difficult cases at all and could be solved within a few minutes.

Ah, okay then. I'll work on Card Girl on a per-region basis (I would have had to anyway because of the riddles) and will put up one region's rework each month... starting after the October patch

But all these levels that are shown in the dialogue are the correct levels, are they not? 

I know for a fact that Caballa Card Quests are the "old dialogue" levels, or have I missed something here?

I really don't know, I haven't looked into Card Quests for a while..

I'll be going through and verifying the level requirements as I put the rewrites together. That's part of why I'm putting the first set off until the October patch notes.

 

 

 

When you suggest the change in dialogues, this is what you do:

 

Old dialogue -- > New dialogue

 

"......."  ---> "......"

 

Put the old dialogue in black, then new dialogue in green or something, a different colour.

 

Please see how Jiri did it when he was asking for name change for Tartarus.

 

You need to state the old dialogue because this is what GM would look for inside the file to get to the appropriate file to change it.

 

Please do not forget to state the location of the Card Girl, like this:

 

NPC: Card Girl

Location: Gate of Desert Beach

 

Use exact name of the location as shown in the map. GM is very particular about exact names because it makes it easier to look inside the file.

 

If the same dialogue is used by the many Card Girl, put a note to just copy that dialogue from whichever Card Girl. Use screenshot to help clarify which dialogue is just for copy/paste. Then GM can just copy that code easily. This makes his life easier and faster for him to do things.

 

Thank you for wanting to make this improvement.

1 month ago, i was verifying level requirements for Card Quests and i found out that there are several differences between level requirement (from ggftw) and level req. written in her dialogue

(i checked every Card Girl and every Card Quest dialogue with a low level character (level 1-31 i think, with the help of ADPPD :) ))

 

when i reported it, Aran told me about this

Player’s report: http://board.playtrickster.com/index.php?/topic/10511-patch-note-2016-08-01-3rd-anniversary/page-3#entry78152

This issue is fixed, but please check because we are not quite sure whether it works in the real server.

 

Hi Aran! Thank you so much for looking into this.

 

It seems that it's still not fixed though.

Again if it is too much trouble to get this fixed, do not worry too much about it.

Thank you again for this lovely patch!

 

Edit: If it helps, the weird layering only occurs during this particular frame cycle (facing down-left or down-right) with gun drawn.

How did I not realize after 10 months of playing, and 4 new characters that ended up being 150+, that they were changed?! 

I feel pretty dumb now, haha.

Thank you for explaining! (: 

 

 

Babybro doesn't read my patch note!!! *gives Pokemon slap*

Owowow!  

You know I read them everytime! 

I just don't think I read the card part, or I forgot! It's been 10 monthssss!

I think that has been reported numerous times and it has been said to be intentional. Conversely, WT hardants are very weak compared to their in-game counterparts.

is it possible to also have a log for the galder bank and galder/points trade?

 

something like:
sell | galder amount | (price) points amount | (to) character name | date
buy | galder amount | (price) points amount | (from) character name | date

withdraw | galder amount | (price) N/A | (to) character name | date
deposit | galder amount | (price) N/A | (from) character name | date

 

i keep losing track of how much galders i had moved across characters, and how much galders i had sold.

Sorry I made a typo, I meant WT hardants are very low compared to the stone counterparts. I'll try to look for some of the links later.

I once requested for there to a log for VIP web-shop transactions but was told that it was a waste of server space and would not be implemented which is ironic since they have a database that tracks everyone's item history.

So, are old players going to get their new Level Up rewards for extra mileage points or will we have to make another account to pick them up :/

 

 

I was wondering about the same thing...It'd be nice to get some mileage points and altiverse boxes.

 

 

It will be great if old players can get the mileage points as well.

 

 

Cough.

Thanks, though not much about MD or DP hardants.

I dont think you should get it if you've already claimed old level up rewards.

Would you return old rewards?

 

How about new characters/players complaining that they didnt get old level up rewards?

I feel the same here. As a person with 2 level 300+ characters, obviously I would like the rewards but realistically, it's probably greedy to be asking for rewards when you've already gotten them once. It's like asking to get paid twice for the same job done.
