Other Games / Romero's Aftermath
« on: March 28, 2015, 08:03:18 AM »
I got this e-mail from Infestation: Survivor Stories (as you know formerly War Z)

Welcome to Romero's Aftermath Early Access Alpha !

Romero's Aftermath is the spiritual successor to the infamous yet very popular zombie survival game Infestation: Survivor Stories formerly known as WarZ. The development team behind Infestation wanted to create a new experience for Infestation/WarZ players making sure to keep best parts of the game that made it popular, while avoiding controversial decisions and plain stupid mistakes that were previously made...

Unfortunately, it was impossible to make the modifications to the existing game under the partnership with Infestation's publisher – OP Productions LLC. We had to leave and start from scratch.

We do believe that what we’ve got is potentially one of the greatest zombie survival games on the market, and we want to make sure that all Infestation players are be able to try it for themselves. To make this happen we’re making this game FREE to all Infestation players.

Everyone who has an active account in Infestation will be able to create a free account in Romero's Aftermath as soon as game reaches Open Beta. In the meantime we invite you to take a peek at the game by joining us in the Early Access Alpha

As a thank you to the most active Infestation players that supported us over the last 3 years, we’ve created a special FREE founders package so that you can try Romero's Aftermath without spending any money on an Early Access Founders Package.

Romero's Aftermath is a unique fruit tree bearing over three years of experience working on Infestation and seeing all the good, the bad and the ugly while making Romero's Aftermath to be better in all aspects.


A quote from this article: http://www.chrisjonesgaming.net/infestation-survivor-stories-the-war-z-gets-a-reboot-with-romeros-aftermath/

So what is Aftermath, exactly? Developer Free Reign East calls it the “spiritual successor” to Infestation, yet it’s technically a new IP due to the developer’s separation from its partner company. “The development team behind Infestation wanted to create a new experience for Infestation/WarZ players making sure to keep best parts of the game that made it popular, while avoiding controversial decisions and plain stupid mistakes that were previously made,” Free Reign East explained. “Unfortunately, it was impossible to make the modifications to the existing game under the partnership with Infestation’s publisher – OP Productions LLC. We had to leave and start from scratch.”

Firefall / Firefall - PTS (Public Test Server)
« on: August 21, 2013, 03:50:39 PM »
Firefall has available a PTS for anyone who has the time to download and enter and test the game in. It is a separate download client from the regular open beta game. You have to make a new account for it, and a new character.

It is not tied in any way to what ever progression you may have on your regular account.

It is up 24/7 like the regular servers. Big changes are set there first and we are alerted through a forum post like this one http://forums.firefallthegame.com/community/threads/testing-help-arsenal-now-live-on-pts.1955541/
in which they are currently asking for help in testing a brand new Battleframe- The Arsenal. AND, their very first public test of open world PvP in the Sunken Harbor area of the map. It's setup kind of like the PvP areas in Fallen Earth. You are warned that you are entering a PvP area.

If you need to see where to download the PTS, check this post http://forums.firefallthegame.com/community/threads/testing-help-arsenal-now-live-on-pts.1955541/page-2#post-29573941

Path of Exile / Some quick Season 3 stats
« on: August 11, 2013, 05:04:07 PM »
(these numbers are not 100% perfect, because I cannot see the last page and if there is a full 20 entries)

There are 1,117 pages of participants in the Race Season 3 Ladder. 20 entries per page (not sure of the number on the last page, so we'll pretend it was a full 20)

That said:
22,340 total accounts participated.

of that, 10,217 accounts got 7 points or more (the minimum required to receive the first reward)
or 45.73% of accounts.

12,123 accounts got 6 points or less (no rewards) or 54.27% of accounts.

13 accounts reached 1000 or more points (maximum number of points, gaining all rewards)
or 0.06% of all accounts.

And 2 accounts in that top 13 have 7 or more challenges complete (Krippers-7 and Fireknight-8) and have absolutely no fucking life)

Firefall / Possible Firefall related army t-shirts
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:09:06 AM »
There's a fellow goes by Rardo on the Firefall forums. He designed t-shirts for two of the larger armies that would be doing some Firefall related events and got the ok from Red 5 to uses logos and such.

Here is the full thread http://forums.firefallthegame.com/community/threads/so-many-shirts.94534/

He is starting to branch out and show off other designs for other armies/clans and I asked him to throw together a couple thoughts for SotW.

Here is what he has come up with so far (click the thumbnails to enlarge):

A couple mock ups without the 'Red 5 Studios" and "Firefall" logos-





And one with the logos added-



Like I said, this is all in the early stages, but he does expect to be able to offer some variations for people to purchase. No idea on costs, and if he is given the 'go' and if enough of you guys are interested, we could change around the layout and all that.

But for now just wanted to show you these early concepts, I'll keep you all posted :)

Note: UI is not complete for this feature yet.
Players can upgrade the power level depositing Crystite Resonators into the power amplifier terminals at these locations.
Power levels can decay if Crystite Resonators have not been deposited after some time.
Crystite Resonators are awarded after events in which Accord Merit Points are awarded.They can also be bought from normal crafting vendors for 1 Accord Merit Point each.
At each additional level, the global buff given by the tow will increase in power (for example, Sunken Harbor's XP buff goes from 1% at level 1 to 5% at level 3).
Outposts that are not Copacabana, Trans-Hub, Thump Dump and Sunken Harbor are always considered to be at level 1 and are not under some of the restrictions of the bigger towns.
New sets of civilians and guards spawn at power levels 2 and 3.
"Exclusive NPCs" are present at specified power levels of the POI.Look out for these advanced crafting vendors:
Corporal Leticia Delgado - Copacabana
Carl Denman - Sunken Harbor
Corporal Jato - Thump Dump
Staff Sergeant Thane Fisher - Trans-Hub
New sets of deployables spawn at power levels 2 and 3.
Level 1 (level range: 0-100 megawatts): Chosen SIN Detector - places all Chosen that are attacking the outpost into SIN for 2 minutes.
Level 2 (level range: 0-200 megawatts): Newly tweaked Flamethrower and Riot Gun turrets and Area SIN detectors (places nearby enemies into SIN and increases damage dealt to them).
Level 3 (level range: 0-100 megawatts): AA guns, energy barriers and sensor drones which act as mobile SIN Detectors.

Progression constraints have been renamed and now have tooltips.

More progress on the crafting UI both visually and functionally (it is still a work in progress, though).
Added refine button which acts as a shortcut to the refining recipes.
All components will now take a very short time to craft (usually 10 seconds).
All final items will take enough time to let you do a thumper or two, or some PvP.
Trying to craft a crystite hybrid component will select the raw resource refining recipe.
Shared components! Many components can be used in similar items.
Cleaned up the Nanoprint lists a bit, less spam.
Aranha, Thrasher, Hisser, Culex DNA and Chosen Tech pieces are now used in the creation of colored crystite hybrid modules, used in Stage 2 recipes and beyond.
Stage 2 items will almost always have superior performance than Stage 1 items.
Sifted Earth refining takes significantly less time.
Sliders have been implemented into the crafting UI.
Sliders can control the amount of a resource you can refine.
Select stackable items can be crafted in multiples.
Resources for crafting a component will be sorted by best to worst preferred stat value.
Fixed an issue causing some recipes not to show up in crafting UI.
Fixed an issue causing sifted earth to break input selection in crafting UI.
Fixed an issue where components could not be selected on some recipes.
Fixed an issue where the stats scroll bar was not resizing.
Fixed an issue where the recipe tree was duplicating itself in the Misc category.
Known Issue: The second workbench at the Molecular Printer will sometimes disappear after unloading or loading from it.Using the command /rui in chat will bring it back.
Cobra P-39
The Cobra P-39 is the first craftable LGV in the game and now has a Nanoprint at the Molecular Printer. This is a permanent vehicle.
The Cobra P-39 requires 5 components to be built: Cobra P-39 Keys, Tri-Axial Wheels, Microfusion Engine, Transverse Suspension, Metalloid Chassis.
The Cobra P-39 Keys can be found at the vendor in Copacabana near the Molecular Printer.
All other components are found at vendors in the POIs affected by power levels only when the POI's power level is 3. Look out for these vendors:
Lieutenant Dwayne Tucker - Copacabana
Dynamo - Sunken Harbor
Jun - Thump Dump
Blanca Gomes - Trans-Hub
Components for the P-39 are bought for Crystite.
Crafted Equipment Durability and Repairs
Added a HUD element to display when equipment is about to break or is broken.This pops up at 50% but can be brought up at any time with TAB.
All equipment will take a 10% durability hit after dying and respawning in the open world.
Equipment will take durability hits from general usage.
Equipment can be repaired at the Garage.
Repairing equipment is currently free of Crystite charge (temporarily only).
UI
Fixed an issue where XP and Resource boost notifications were displaying 0% boost.
Triple monitor: splash screens should be more consistent when switching from the login screen to the main UI.
Triple monitor: left and right monitors are now blacked out during loading screen.
Triple monitor: loading screens with descriptions will no longer stretch onto the third monitor.
Fixed an issue where you could not play SIN Imprints through the Achievements UI.

Adjustments made to progression and Garage UI.
You can see all owned equipment regardless of requirements.
Item requirements stand out more - if the item is red you cannot equip that item.
All abilities in the Garage now have tooltips.
It is now possible to view tooltips and loadouts for battleframes not owned.
Equipping/Viewing gear choices in Garage has been streamlined.
The amount of the resource needed to progress the battleframe selected is now displayed in the Garage.
Items in the Garage show their durability pool.
Items in the Garage now have a little icon on them when they are damaged.
There is now a button in the Garage that allows players to repair damaged items.
Clicking on various parts of the player is no longer required.Select the slot you wish to modify from a list to the right of your character in the Garage screen.
Changed font and coloring on Tooltips.
Tooltips are now positioned relative to mouse's vertical position on the frame.
Prevented right clicking out of Garage.
Pressing 'Esc' in the Garage while the slotting interface is focused will close the Garage and not just the interface.
Fix for redundant stats appearing in tooltips that are already calculated as attributes.
Fix for inverted stats being +/- flipped in item tooltips.
Fixed an issue where the item tooltip would break when using compare.
Fixed some missing description text of some items.

Firefall / New crafting system information (patch 0.6 moving forward)
« on: April 02, 2013, 03:38:06 PM »
If any of you have checked out the latest patch, you may have looked into the new crafting system. It is almost totally new, and looks is very daunting as it is right now. There is going to be many tweaks and updates along the way as feedback is collected though.

One big thing to remember, right now all nanoprints are available for crafting, so the list is piled up with everything right now. Later, you will be unlocking them as you go.

Here are some links to preliminary guides to help get you going.

Not all weapons are doing damage to the Dreadnaught shield alt-fire. Secondaries seem to be the most consistent.

Firefall / Founder's Packs available this weekend
« on: August 29, 2012, 08:15:49 AM »
Red 5 has announced the Founder's Packs for Firefall. There are 3 tiers priced at $20, $50, and $100.

Here is a vid explaining what is in them-



As the vid states during the entire weekend that PAX prime is running (this weekend, Fri to Sun.)
There is a 25% savings on the pack prices making them $15, $37, and $75.

Forum thread- http://www.firefallthegame.com/community/threads/founder-pack-video-is-up.53109/

some quick official quotes form the thread:

Answers to questions...

Can I get the discount without going to PAX?

Absolutely! The discount applies for everyone during the entire PAX weekend, Friday through Sunday. After that, prices will return to normal.

Can I only get a bike by buying Commander pack?

Nope. The bike in the Commander pack is a custom chopper-style bike instead of the default bike in the game. It's unique, just like you.

Extra masks for my friends, what's that about?

At the Lieutenant and Commander level, you receive a custom mask and then you receive extra Ensign masks for your friends. You'll still look like the bad ass of the group, but we wanted you to have something that you can share with other people.

How do I reserve my name/Army name?

The websites for these will be online soon and will go with the redemption of the founders pack. Your Army name will only be "confirmed" once you have 5 total people in your Army. So get your friends ready to go. More details on the specific pages later this week.

How long will Founders packs be available?

Founders packs are just that, for founders. They will only be available for a limited time. Time is still to be determined, but buy early if you're worried (especially with that 25% discount).

Can I use Red Beans to buy a founders pack?

No. Founders packs are separate from Red Beans and come with huge discounts on Red Beans, thus you must purchase them with credit card or Paypal.

When will I receive stuff?

Virtual items should be available Sept 24th in game. For physical goods, allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

What do I get for buying at PAX vs online?

An awesome physical card showing that you are a founder and the Merch pet, along with all the great stuff in the packages.

I've already unlocked the Merch via the Crystite Challenge. When do I get that?

Sept 24th along with everyone else. No purchase necessary.

You can buy a founder pack with Paypal, which gives you red beans, but in-game we are still working on Paypal support.

There are no more character wipes. Ever. Any name you have now will be retained for a little while longer (any unused names with idle accounts may be removed to prevent squatting).

I am checking on international shipping.

Decals are going to be used various places, including the forums and player profile pages.

Also checking on XP boost stacking. I don't think they stack with each other, but I'll check.

XP bonuses do not stack. Commanders in a group receive 15%. Everyone else in their group receives 10%. They will stack with other purchased bonuses though.
