arrow.gif (832 bytes)TWO AO THINGS
iconao.gif (2239 bytes)
Other than that the game goes up and down more than a prom date, there were two tidbits released by Funcom regarding Anarchy Online.  The first was notes on a recent patch:
  • Fixed a problem related to playshifting/zoning.
  • Fixed a bug that made it hard for some users to connect to the servers during peak hours.

Also, game designer Martin Amor released a "daily" update regarding the latest patch, concerns of the players and the game in general.   If reading that sounds cool to you, click here.

iconac.gif (838 bytes)
Crossroads of Dereth has updated their libraries with a copy of last nights Dev Chat regarding the Dark Majesty expansion pack for Asheron's Call.  From what I could see, most of the major topics were covered and a good deal of items were cleared up.  To read the transcript from CoD, click here.

In somewhat related news, it seems the newly revived CoD may not be in the clear yet:

We need your Support
Unfortunately, we need your help. Due to delays some of our business partners are having in meeting their commitments, this attempt to relaunch the Crossroads Network needs your support to meet its immediately financial obligations. Alex Macris, CEO of Warcry and the business brain making this effort possible had this to say:

As you may have noticed, we have been running house ads for EzzMedia for the past several days. These ads were supposed to be replaced by a major corporate sponsorship. Unfortunately, that sponsorship has not been forthcoming, leaving the Crossroads revival without a steady revenue stream. Therefore, we have decided to being pursuing alternative sources of cash. In the future, that will mean merchandise and special product offerings, but for now, we'll just be opening up to contributions from you, our community. All contributions will go towards the network's bandwidth and other costs, and any excess will be invested in better hardware and software, to make this the fastest, most reliable network around. We appreciate any and all support you can give.

There is no set amount to contribute. We have added links to Paypal and Amazon.com, whom we're currently using to handle contributions via credit card. If you're interested alternative methods of contributing, please contact Alex Macris for more information.

Our immediate goal is to meet our bandwidth costs for this month (currently at roughly $2,000). This should allow us sufficient time to get over this initial hump and deliver the alternative revenue options we have been planning on. I thank you again for your continued patience and support.

icondg.gif (2681 bytes)
Today's update is, well, rather lackluster.  I'm feeling awfully sh-tty right now, seems like I'm coming down with something.  I was just going to zone out with some AO and then go to bed, but Funcom had other plans.   So here's the short of it:

-Stryker has a new Comic up, go check it out right now!

-I'm putting a temporary hold on our AO page and guild right now until the game settles down a bit.  Hard to do anything with a guild when the server is going down every 45 minutes.

-No new cam pick today, unless you want a pic of me blowing my nose or throwing up.

Ahhh that's it, I'm out.  Austin hugs to you all, goddamn... I *may* have to miss work tomorrow.
