sorry guys, new game... but it rocks

Yes the classic Ultimate Usurper and in fact the popular Usurper Special Edition games are both down for good. However, they are replaced by what I believe to be our best Usurper yet, with hints of both, some special customizations of its own, lots of special weapons and armors / artifacts to find i...

never fear

I've got the board running off of my server with its RAID5 plus it gets backed up to other computers across the network so rest assured any time it's down it's a temporary thing. I plan on keeping the board up indefintely. It must be obvious by now that I have no Thanksgiving plans... Btw, hope ever...

shameless ad

Today is Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving.

Zimmer just beat our Usurper SE game AGAIN. Tonight it gets reset so another warrior may have a chance of having those bragging rights for the next month.

Jump in now!

another congrats

I think that's twice in a row now for Zimmer. So, I've listened to some suggestions and the game should take slightly longer now. I recommend more people get into it, after running Ultimate Usurper for however long and adding that much more experience into the mix, and using all that experience to m...

multiple usurpers

I have two going, and had no problems. I was a little confused by your post. You want two side by side Usurpers going, nothing fancy, right? It sounds like you either have something wrong with your dropfile config in Synchronet or your second usurper is misconfigured somehow... Sounds like you're ei...

solution

this is how i circumvented the problem, well, alleviated it rather. unless your bbs is just totally slamming, you probably only have one user in usurper at a time, so that when the user gets kicked out and is still online there are no other players in there, making it safe to delete the onliners.dat...

final thoughts

btw, in my opinion, my and everyone's comments regarding the bugs found are done out of a desire to help improve and benefit the program. as usurper patriots our input drives the change we hope to see so that all may benefit from our experience. I'm really shocked by the whole ego/self esteem commen...

plus all the others

while true there are a whole lot more that are much more severe. for example, a bug where equipment is doubled. you can easily get 2bil in short order if you do it systematically.

please fix this Jakob!

close call

yeah the drive the board was running on basically crashed, but we were able to restore most of the files and data, and with older copies i had i filled in the blanks, and now i've even got the old file archive back online so everything should be in good shape. we will be going down for a portion of ...

ps

also: team dungeon fighting enabled again on this one. the armors are closer to their original values (higher values caused the team problem) but extra ones are still there in a well-balanced manner. Other things I can't think of. Quicker level advancement. It's going to be great, go jump in.

usurper special edition notice

Hello all, This is not a shameful plug for my board but given the popularity of ultimate usurper, I thought I should post this. We now have a second game online, coined usurper special edition. This is an equally creative configuration as ultimate usurper, but in very different ways. In this game, i...

Ok, just wanted to let you know the monsters are fixed at 91+, rings and necklaces can't be stolen, and i'm not sure but i may have accidentally taken away monsters spells, unless I had already done that, so any questions/comments/concerns?

vortexbbs.com should resolve fine now / yes The Vortex is up

I'm posting this because of the post by Fighting Illini. The board was down for a little while when the DNS was being moved from one of my servers to another one of my servers, the latter being one that isn't messed with as much. I was doing a lot of testing and different things with mine, and would...

I've made some meagre beginnings to this project. The name is Supplanter, and it will be something of a tech demo in new web development concepts. The first stage is to create a development system to make it easy for devs to work on the code, so you might not see the beginnings of the game code for...
