Around the Web #2

Posted in Around the Web with tags , on 17 October, 2008 by Leo

Its time for a new “Around the Web”! Here we go :

  • First of all Warhammer is so pretty I decided to create a page where I could post my various pictures of the game. You can check it here or on the page menu on the right.
  • An article over at Classy Gamer declares that even Death Knight won’t be anything evil in Wow. I agree with him and I think that Mythic did a really good job at rendering real EVIL in their game.
  • Malitas from Da’ Toughest had some odd experience he could see the order player chatting. You can read about it here.
  • Hudson tries to find a way to fix casual player dilemna. Are the instancing killing communities? Should we go back to having less of them so people are obliged to interact ?  Also he has an awesome EQ screenshot that brings back quite a few memories!
  • Stunty Stomper speaks about dyes. Being myself a huge fan of this system I can only recommend reading about it!
  • After the attack on Altdorf that happened on the Averheim server Order proclaimed they won’t let that happen again and united to form an alliance capable of repelling Destruction armies.
  • Rog posted about the little things he likes and dislikes in War. Read it here.
  • Syp found a way to reduce stuttering in game. You can try it yourself over there. I’m going to do it as well. I also read somewhere that turning off grass could help tremendously.
  • If you read sometimes this blog maybe you noticed that I liked making addons, well I have two main projects at the moment which are Guard Me! which helps to track guard for tanks and displays an alert for the other careers when you are being guarded and Mechanic Alert! which displays a message when your career mechanic is full. I should be working with the author of the awesome Waaaghbar soon as well, I’ll keep you informed when I know more.
  • Also just wanted to let you know that the following games are about to get released and they look good : Left 4 Dead (Preview here), Dead Space (This game looks promising you can find a preview here) and of course Fallout 3 (preview here)

That’s all folks !


Around the Web #1

Posted in Around the Web on 26 September, 2008 by Leo

In “Around the Web” I will ,whenever I feel like it, report interesting articles I find around that talks about Warhammer Online or other things.

So here we go for the first edition!

Being a software engineer I wanted to look at addon making so i promptly went to The Warwiki API page to get some infos on how to get going. Next I needed an idea, so I’m going to try and make an outfitter addon that lets you make sets of Tactics and Morale abilities that let you easily switch them between combats depending if you are going to RvR or PvE for example. I know this addon is not of a tremendous help but at least I have a clear objective on which to focus and maybe I’ll be able to finish this project. Stay tuned for more infos about this addon soon.

I took the time to update a little my blogroll as well as the links with a few new nice ones i found cruising around.

This week-end in Neuchâtel, my lovely city, is the traditional “Fête des Vendanges” or Wine Harvest Fest. Basically the city is rammed with alchohol selling bars and everyone gets drunk, yuppy! So I doubt I’ll be able to play any WAR or update my blog. See you on Monday
