#5595761 Pokemon Go

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 27 January 2017 - 06:14 PM

To me pokemon go is now just a thing the odd "kooky" friend goes on about and I just nod and smile and carry on chaining Mareanies or w/e to finish my livingdex, which is a mighty shame really.


It was sort of okay when it first launched, but the fact they didn't get much needed improvements out quite quickly and actually ruined crucial features just made it too much of a "lets check my phone" oh theres ANOTHER ratata here? How nice.


I mean multiplayer as mentioned would've been a big help but also offline functionality - as in don't make me have the app open to count steps, create notifications on my phone if I go i range of pokemon I haven't caught or specific pokemon I chose to be notified of etc.

#5594741 Beefy Bill

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 07 December 2016 - 06:53 AM

As far as I am aware Beefy Bill never has been in old school runescape.


After all he did come out in 2009 and OSRS base was an '07 build of the game.

#5593290 Nxt Graphics Rant

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 27 September 2016 - 05:42 AM

I fail to see how a collision engine would be any use in runescape as it stands, that kind of system is for dynamic animations/actions that need to react when they, well, collide with other stuff.


Runescape as it's heart is a grid based game with pre-defined animations. Before they could even consider some sort of collision engine they would need to re-write the entire game to be non-grid based and to use dynamic animations and then write a physics engine to define the properties of everything so they behave properly when they made them collide.


And overall I just fail to see the point in even having it as a goal, yes it means were not at the bleeding edge of what graphics can do, but then no mmorpg is really, even wow etc all rely on pre-defined animation cycles with no actual collision engines and the game looks plenty good enough imo.

#5591684 Disappearing bonus xp for invention

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 30 July 2016 - 09:45 AM

In my experience Jagex are one of the best companies out there for actually engaging with their customer base, taking on feedback, changing things, responding the bug reports etc.

Sure sometimes they might be a bit slow on turn around and get things annoyingly wrong in the first place, but on the whole good at getting them fixed.


That kind of attitude you are showing is the attitude that won't get anything sorted, sure Jagex won't give back the xp you say you lost or whatever, but if you submit a bug report they will look in to the issue and fix anything that is broken.

#5589045 Mega May - Meg's Cases | May Weekends | Port Boosts

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 08 May 2016 - 03:59 PM


And somehow stuff like collecting vampyre dolls can be a comp req.

I think the main issue is that these cases are time-limited comment so I don't know how they would handle reqs...



If you didn't play in may 2016 you can never comp....ever.


Problem solved!

#5588768 Help with Drygore's? Plz

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 02 May 2016 - 04:53 PM

Yeah Longs is basically a looks thing - of the 3 people (generalising cuz obv personal taste) think Longs look best. So people want longs because they look cooler.

This makes longs more expensive than the others.

So then the people who want to look cool in terms of wealth and don't care about looks also want them to show they can afford them.


It is surprising Rapiers still hold the middle ground really because Maces have the prayer bonus boon to them and Longs have the fashionscape/show off boon but rapiers are just like eh they exist.

We are using hide tags because there are people who read these forums even if they do not post and we don't want to be inconsiderate ass-wipes and post spoilers people can't avoid whilst it is still new content.

#5584794 What happened to these forums?

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 13 February 2016 - 07:34 PM



Yeah, but that's actually a pretty sizable chunk of the forum's active population

Yes, this would be the issue sadly.


To be brutally honest, all forums I've been a part of since early 2000s have bled a ton of users to social media and specialized discussion formats. There is nothing Tip.it could have done.

It's like complaining no one uses Usenet (outside of piracy) anymore. Or mailing lists are becoming obsolete with issue trackers and other tools...

Discussion formats evolve with advances in technology. It's simple as that.


 Lies I say lies!


Clearly when technology and social media move forward it is 100% the specific communities failing that their format dies out. Everything can live on if you believe! 


Now excuse me whilst I go back to my lively MSN and AIM group convos whilst browsing Myspace and Bebo and updating my Geocities blog.

Who is this woman.


She looks an awful lot like Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

#5583773 Biggest Disappointment

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 24 January 2016 - 12:49 PM

In my experience which sub-forum a thread is in means absolutely nothing to it dying or not.


A good thread will flourish wherever it is put, the reason this thread died is simply because people are not that interested in it - we don't want to be negative and whine and look back and say 'what if' and join your perpetual pity party of boohoo everything is ruined that you drag around to every thread. I mean it's not like you thread didn't get viewed - people looked and then left without posting because it did not interest them.


We want to look forward to what is to come and enjoy what is happening now.


Don't go trying to drag a good mod doing their job right down or imply there is some huge systemic flaw with the forum just because your thread died due to lack of interest.

#5582883 Does 07 or eoc have a higher player count?

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 09 January 2016 - 04:59 PM

Jagex does not cater to efficient or meta-players.

If they did every single piece of content would have a defined space in the meta-game instead of much being dead content.


Besides like it or not every single player is part of the meta-game.

If you have ever watched a guide on how to do something in-game, bought yourself better gear to help yourself out or moved on to higher level content to get better xp or better gp you have played the meta-game. You have made these changes because the meta-game dictates they benefit you.


Just because you personally do not care what the absolutely theoretical best is or don't choice to do things the mathematical perfect ways does not mean you are magically outside the meta-game. In fact the meta-game probably did a bunch of sums and testing to work out exactly how you should play in a lesser intense, less theoretically perfect way (ie welfare guides, low budget guides, low stat guides. Gear equivalents).


Also it is very rude and insulting to class an entire group as dweebs and write off how they like to interact with the game just because you do not like it or find it fun.

Some of us find enjoyment and fun in working things out and we like to share what we have worked out to help others if they wish to take the advice.

Just because you do not want to use that advice is no reason to be rude and disrespectful to the time and effort people have invested in doing so and the fact they are willing to share that effort.


I mean I spent several hours making my fish flinger tracker to aid in playing fish flingers more efficiently does that mean i'm a "meta dweeb" and ruining the game?

I mean heaven forbid I have fun and enjoy myself by doing some javascripting to create a tool that helps me score more points easily in part of runescape because I like the idea of getting the most out of my time in fish flingers.

And how game ruining and awful of me to post it to major fansites so that others may use it entirely for free if they wish to do so.

And then as a real monstrous move to put the knife in and wreck the game for you I even spent MORE of my time enjoying myself doing some coding to implement suggestions to make the tool better,


Bottom line is if you have ever chosen to make a change to improve how you do something in-game you have made a meta-game choice.

If you have ever watched a single video guide or read a single guide on any forum, fansite or wiki about runescape you have purposefully gone in pursuit of meta-game knowledge to do something more efficiently.

#5582597 Does 07 or eoc have a higher player count?

Posted by Sy_Accursed on 04 January 2016 - 08:40 PM

So we know the player counts of 07, eoc and darkscape, how many players does rs3 have?


You realise eoc and rs3 are the same game right?
