UPDATES: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CFpBNqpd3p3jhXH3YprEgL5QQ3TfrJcrYP_2upjBUjI/edit

Legends of Equestria is going to Canterlot Gardens! We will be hosted in the gaming room together with Fighting is Magic! Please stop by and talk with us and share your thoughts and ideas. Or just stop by and give us muffins and cupcakes.

But that's not all. We will be performing a stress test. During Canterlot Gardens, we will open the game to the public during that weekend. You will need a forum account to log in, so if you don't have one yet, register on our forums.

There will be two ways to obtain the game:
1) Stop by our table! We will have flash drives with the game on them to copy to your computer, or bring your own flash drive (at least 512 mb), and we can copy the game onto it.
2) Download it from our website! We will provide links to download the game, including a torrent link. We urge you to NOT download it from any other source.


We want to remind you all this is still pre-alpha. It will have bugs, it will have graphics issues and it will not be finalized. The server might also go down due to load. Everything is subject to change!


More information about this event will be released next week!

(If it's a stress test hopefully it doesn't crash from activity when it starts, although that will probably help a lot on telling what the server can handle.)

If a good amount of people use the torrent instead of a direct download from the site that would probably help ease the stress on the website, the only problem with that though is reliable speed for the torrent and possible other issues that could occur.

What Madness said. It'll just be for the weekend, since they seem to mostly want to test the servers' strength and ability to withstand a large number of players at once. After that, we probably won't have access again until it comes out for Beta testing.

We will actually hand out the OSX version too! We wish everyone to be able to stresstest our servers.

But please people, remember that The Road To Alpha have the latest systems etc. So it means the fighting mechanic for example isn't implemented yet.

Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Snowy on 2012 Sep 22, 12:00:28
I forgot about crashing. Oh well. I'm just going to have to restart my computer before I get on so it can be nice and fresh for me to get on. I know it wont help but, it should help a little with lagging. If I had to download it now,  I wouldn't stay on long. I haven't restarted my computer for some time now. More like going on four weeks.

But I cant WAIT. The more I think about it, the more I cant wait. When I fist saw it I thought I could handle the wait. Kind of like this:


"Its opening for the weekend!?! YAY!! Its only going to take a week, then I can play, not much waiting. ^-^"

*Now*

"...Oh my GOSH. How long does it take for a week to past!? D:"

not 100% that we will include it. We found a problem that we have to fix before we can implement it and right now we got focus on more important parts.

Aren't you guys the least bit concerned some superhacker jerk will download the files for the game and open up his own private server for everyone to play after the con is over, thus making a leaked version of the game?

Have fun?

Really, if someone now want's to start a private server for a pre-alpha game. Why? Why even start a private server at all once the game is released. It's free, we will never charge for it.

I unno, I was thinking of the whole Fighting is Magic fiasco, of when someone leaked that game and even made a custom server for it..
Now that I think of it though, I don't think it would concern you guys all that much anyway, since you already are making a temporary release to the public anyway, so its not like anything would get spoiled :P
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Teal Turken on 2012 Sep 22, 13:24:24
True Itty, a leaked version of the game in pre-alpha wouldn't be such a big deal, especially since it's gonna be released for a few days anyway.

In the case of Fighting is Magic it was accidentally leaked and caused some despair amongst the developers.

The thing with Fighting is Magic is that they use Fighter Maker 2k2. There are two pre-made server softwares for it so it was just to boot it up and get playing.

We made our server from scratch. (Or should I say Justin started to do it to make it easier to use)

But never the less, a lot of features aren't in this pre-alpha. After all, it's a stress test.

We will actually hand out the OSX version too! We wish everyone to be able to stresstest our servers.

ALL OF MY YES!!

You guys rock, I can't wait to find those evil bugs and glitches  :D


We wish NOT to get any bug reports. This is a strict stress test on our servers. We know about most, if not all of the bugs so far.

I unno, I was thinking of the whole Fighting is Magic fiasco, of when someone leaked that game and even made a custom server for it..


They wouldn't have to just create a new server - they'd have to modify the client as well. Currently, the client contacts both the game server, as well as the website (for login and a server list). I would heavily recommend against downloading a modified client, as it'd be relatively trivial to be used it as a trojan. This is also why we are recommending against downloading the game from anywhere else other than what will be provided from the main site.

Am I the only one who thinks that having the stress test during Canterlot Gardens is a terrible idea?
Ok, so... You're making an appearance to promote and show new content of your game and letting some get a chance to play (great!!).
Now you're going to let loose 400-1000 people during this 3 day period whilst you're trying to promote LoE.

Crashes...
Crashes....
Even more crashes.

I do understand the importance of stress tests, don't get me wrong. But having one with only minimal content, in early pre-alpha stages (98% of people will be standing around in Ponyville spamming fireballs and barrel rolls (lol earth ponies)).
I just don't see it running that smoothly for those playing at Canterlot Gardens...

Perhaps run the stress test a week later? I'm sure everyone can wait a week to be standing around Ponyville. (I know when the doors open I'll be standing/sitting like a champion)

Just my 2 cents, for all I know they could have this monster beast of a server that can support millions in a tiny server.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 22, 20:29:05
It's highly possible they could have two separate servers, one for a stress test and one for showing off anything new they have made for Canterlot Gardens. All they really need is the server software on more then one PC. Granted I have no idea if this is correct or not but it is a possibility.

I usually keep the forum open on the general category, and I'll refresh every once in a while to see if there are any new posts in any of the sections.

I really hope it'll be okay for us to take screenshots and record for Youtube and stuff. It's inevitable anyway.

I just hope that anyone and everyone who shares screenshots or videos tells everyone else upfront that it was just temporary for a stress test, and the game isn't done yet, it's only Pre-Alpha, and it's not available for full download and play yet.
^Remember that, guys.

You are correct. One of the servers will be set to let anyone connect, and another will only let team members connect.

I'm about 99% sure they said once that any info created in Beta(in the case of any Beta testing when they reach that point) would be erased so everypony would have to start at the same level.  Seeing as this is prealpha it's even more likely the case as they'd replace the server and client builds anyways, making anything clientside created obsolete, incompatible, or both.
I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Well, I'll be keeping the fact that the game's in Pre-Alpha in mind. I love exploring and flying, so that won't be a problem for me. I'll be thrilled to get a feel of the game, and just talking with all these awesome ponies will be enough for me. I also am very curious about the character creation screen!

Yup. The most i'll do is  fly around. And talk to people, and if I can i'll roleplay, at least a little, then go back to seeing the sights. I'll do a sample roleplay just to see how it'll go in the game, I guess. I might be so overwhelmed and forget about rp and just go where ever the wind takes me. I'm sure I'll find something. Its just nice to see how far the game has improved.

Ok before I go on a rant please don't take offence from what I'm going to say now with that said Ryo rant engaged

Personally at this stage it doesn't matter if a large amount of gameplay features or places are not implemented yet as you've said it is a pre Alpha build but being able to see how the game has progressed, socialising with those who are known on the forums and those who are joining for the first time, that is what should be looked forward to and being able to play with minor features that the team has implemented is a bonus to all of this.

I greatly look forward to this regardless of its current quality and features, the game has a long way to go but being able to see what were all supporting and waiting for is what it is about and also being online is a help for the stress test and showing the features to  ^-^

What Xeno said, they'll probably put a link to the download on the Friday at some point when they start the test.
I just posted where the link will likely be.

i knoooow I totally agree with you! It's like 'I hail from Canterlot and I am a great wizards -does awesome tricks-' or 'this is my library get out!' lol or even 'I am the only pony who dares live deeper in the EverFree Forest than Zecora! I live in the dark and this is my home' and they don't realize that there are atleast 10,000 other twisted ponies like them but sometimes they go 'I am better and darker than them all!' . buuuut, if they had spent sometime knowing other ponies on the forums, they would know all the ponies who lived in the forest. But nooooo lol. Don't worry, I know how to deal with trolls and godmodders and show offs. I've been dealing with them for too long

Exactly, but some of the people joining the fourm who were previous lurkers, may think otherwise..  :I

If we start saying about members joining just to leave isn't that going to put more off joining, now how about we put this debate to rest before we create more arguments  ^-^

Again Ryo rant over also

I'm probably gonna spread the word later this week when we get closer to the test date. ^-^ The more ponies, the better! I bet even more will jump onboard if they start seeing screenshots and videos being posted by us all during the test.

Still, though, screenshots and videos should have "This is from the Pre-Alpha stress test. Players are only able to play for Sept. 28th, 2012 through Sept. 30th, 2012." right before it or something like that. :D

Yeah, but Swebow said they don't want any bug or glitch reports yet. X3 All they want right now is a stress test.

Yes. First off, we'd end up getting a million reports for the same bug. Secondly, there are so many bugs at the moment, it'd be cumbersome just to look through all the reports even if there was only one per bug. and lastly, we are already aware of probably 99% of the bugs, so it's unnecessary anyway.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Charcoal Sketch on 2012 Sep 23, 22:59:16
Understood.  Stress only.

If, by some miracle, everything's still running on the final day, maybe I'll give an extra effort to give the server a mental breakdown... or not.  Still, if I enjoy myself, I'll keep a personal bug list in case I end up testing again in the future so I know where to start poking around.

Not sure how valid that is now, since those estimates were posted on May 17 and edited on July 10, but I guess that's basically it.

I think it'd be kind of silly to expect them to save our character info, if you really think about it. If they did save it, then in Beta, we'd already have our adult pony with the cutie mark we want, right? It would skip the filly stage.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Charcoal Sketch on 2012 Sep 23, 23:08:22
Let's just hope we don't have any bugs like one I found on Ragnarok Online when iRO was in alpha; I managed to create a character glitched so badly that as soon as I would log in, I'd get booted offline, along with everyone in visual range of my character.  It's not my fault they didn't secure the packets you sent while making characters and I created one with bad paramaters...

I'm going to have to control myself to not go poking into things...

Those stats are still valid. Most of those were written with an assumption of how the game would be when it's officially released. As it is right now, some of those stats are actually higher than the game is in its current state. Right now it takes up about a gigabyte of hard drive space (the download is 230 mb, however), not 700, and only takes up about 1.5 Gigs of ram, not 2. Otherwise I'd say everything else is fairly accurate.

But, no, they're not going to save our characters. After the test, everyone's characters will be wiped. Besides, if they saved our ponies, we'd have an unfair advantage when it comes out.

It's like being in driving school. The cops don't care that the car you're driving says "Student Driver" on it. If you break a rule/law, they'll still pull you over for it.

It's not. The game is in pre-alpha. It has to go through alpha then beta until it gets released.

Do you mean, if we keep this weekend's download, will it update to full later on when the game is fully released in Beta? You're right, that would save time.

Yes exactly. It would greatly reduce the amount of data to download. Update is much faster then full download

Will offline single player be possible?  We could search for further problems and generally spend a day being a pony just for the hay of it.  We'd also be able to learn our way around the place even after the servers are closed.
If it's available once the full game is out, it'd also allow a single-player experience with the NPCs...

They said it would be hard to implement in just a few days, so most likely no, we won't have single player.

I think it was said in this thread even! But with all of these discussions about the test... I keep mixing them and forgetting which is which! lol

Main difference between the 2 would be that gaming computers have a high powered graphics card requiring extra power via a pci-e connector on your PSU or something, whereas a non-gaming PC has an Intel graphics chipset. :D

No offense to anyone with Intel graphics, it just sucks. :P
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 25, 18:42:27
RAM and CPU also matter though as a bottlenecked CPU will run games just as poorly as having a bad Graphics card, when I had my old PC it had a good Graphics card but the CPU was getting old and a lot of new games did not run good on it.

(A lot of things are needed for a gaming PC depending on the game you want to play, an HDD can also affect performance of games if it's not fast at using data, although the HDD usually isn't a big deal compared to the other parts unless you get a crazy solid state drive.)
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Xeno Aura on 2012 Sep 25, 18:44:35
Indeed, but RAM and CPU are important for general use, the only specific thing a gaming PC needs more than a productive PC is a GPU.

Video editing etc. takes up far more power than games, but doesn't really need a great GPU. Adobe Premiere for example, recommends at least 8GB of RAM.

Think we're sort of getting off-topic here though. :D

It will only be up for download this weekend. Though, I'm sure people will put it up for download elsewhere (which we don't recommend downloading from because they can easily be scams/viruses.) Also, as we've said a few times elsewhere, the game is not designed to just let anyone with the client log on. Your account has to also be flagged to be allowed to play. This means that after the weekend is over, even if you have the client, you will not be able to play any more.

Oh yeah. We have all kinds of nifty tools up our sleeves to keep the bad ponies out, good ponies in, and make sure everypony else is having a good time. I'm not sure what much there is that you can do to purposely strain the server, though, besides spamming chat I suppose. And even then, I put in a spam filter, so that won't even work.

Also ask yourself this: Why would a "hacker" try to flood our bandwidth this weekend as opposed to any other time? Why not DDOS our forums? That's way more vital than the game at the present time. Why not DDOS our servers any other time other than this weekend? We use them constantly in order to develop the game. On top of that, we have several dedicated hosts. It would take not only a powerful attack to bring one of them down, but it would take several simultaneous attacks on all of our hosts to bring us down. All of those factors just make it so very unlikely.

Luckily I don't think LoE is big enough (yet) to attract the attention of anyone who has any DOS power.

Anyone with any slave computers available would probably hit a more high-profile target, people usually do this for the attention factor, and bragging rights.
makes sense, although given the attention Bronyism in general has gotten in the past, you never know.  I'm probably just paranoid though.


If they wanted to hit the Bronies, they'd hit EQD, that gets thousands of views a day, so we'll have them to draw fire from LoE. :D

And can't wait for tomorrow. :)

Heh, I kinda laughed at this
I was Ddos'd during a comp match last year, which means there are people who play my dinky little game who have the capacity to pull off a dos attack.  Don't underestimate people.
I'm hardly considered high-profile(but I think the other team won because I couldn't get past the dos attack for a good 2 hours)

I was going off the information our clan's programmer/Web admin was giving me.  He said something about a 1-1 dos attack.

I thought flooding a network with packets was a dos attack.  Sorry if I don't understand the difference, I try to sound like I know what i'm talking about... X3
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Xeno Aura on 2012 Sep 26, 10:32:50
DDoS is where multiple systems all flood the server with data at once, only 1 system gives the command and the other systems (usually without the owners knowledge or consent) start attacking the server as well. It then overloads the server and it shuts down.

If you have malware on your system, it may be that someone who uses DDoS attacks has made your PC a slave, and therefore, enabled it to be used in their DDoS attacks.

Some large hacking groups who have followings offer programs you can download where you willingly offer your PC as a DDoS slave for their attacks.

EVE Online was attacked by a DDoS last year, by a rather famous group, who used thousands of PC's to simultaneously flood the EVE servers, causing some of them to crash.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: LaptopCommandStation on 2012 Sep 26, 10:40:50
I actually knew that, I looked up Ddos'ing after the attack on me

What is the difference between a Ddos/dos attack, and flooding my PC causing my network to fail?

Oh, and sorry i'm off topic but if I find out i'm wrong about something I was positive I was right about I love knowing why i'm wrong, especially when it's computer related.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Xeno Aura on 2012 Sep 26, 10:43:52
Distributed Denial of Service is just a form of Denial of Service.

DoS is used to flood a network. DDoS is a term used when many computers flood a network simultaneously, probably the most common DoS attack.

I don't quite understand what you mean by "flooding your PC"? If your network failed, it's possible they used a PC a send you a ton of packets and your network just couldn't handle it and it disconnected.

I have to go to work soon, so I'm gonna drop this for now.  All I wanted to know was what happened to me that day where my network was taken down for 2 hours by "flooding my network with false packets causing it to not respond to anything for 2 hours" and how that is different from a DoS attack as based on my research a DoS attack is "One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable."

single machine vs multiple machine, in this case.

DoS
#>1? <yes> = DDoS
<no> = DoS

So DDoS is a subset of DoS, or that's what I'm seeing from Xeno's definition.

Friday, when Canterlot Gardens (http://www.canterlotgardens.com) starts. I'm assuming there's going to be a big gaming panel, that's probably when we'll get access to the game.

Also URL text colour needs to be changed :c

Yeah, the LoE panel for CG is Friday, so I'm guessing they'll host the panel, and bring the servers up after the panel has finished? That way, people who really want to stress test it will get to see the panel, instead of both LoE and the panel running simultaneously, competing for attention.

LoE panel is at 12PM to 1PM CG time (GMT-5).

So if they are brought up after:

West Coast USA: 10AM
East Coast USA: 1PM
UK and Portugal: 6PM
Most of Europe: 7PM
Australia: 3AM (Saturday)

Unless my timezones fail me :P

Strongsville, Ohio (Canterlot Gardens) is on the east coast. So shift all hours down by one. Also to note is that even though our offical time slot is from noon to 1 PM, we will actually be at our panel earlier than that on Friday, and will be there most of the day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Xeno Aura on 2012 Sep 26, 13:14:35
I did say it was GMT-5 which is the east coast.

I did it by when the panel finishes, as it would make more sense for the servers to start after the panel finished, rather than when the panel started. So the panel ends at 1PM Ohio time, servers start at 1PM East Coast time (theoretically of course)

I must say I like CG's OCs very much.
Or to say more formally, mascots.
Also Xeno if you say the LoE panel is 12pm at -5 then that's going to be about 7 am for me.

Yep from midday to 1 pm.

On that wiki page:

Legality


In the Police and Justice Act 2006, the United Kingdom specifically outlawed denial-of-service attacks and set a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.[28]

In the US, there can be a serious federal crime under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act with penalties that include years of imprisonment. Many other countries have similar laws.[29]

The US situation is under court ruling with a case in California.[30]

But trademark =/= copyright. o_o
Trademark has different rules than copyright. I think an example my teacher gave us was if an airport company uses the word Delta in their name, and some other kind of company, maybe a donut shop, uses Delta in their name, it's not illegal because Delta Donuts isn't the same kind of company as Delta Airlines.

I'm still not sure where LoE would stand in a trademark situation, though, if Equestria is trademarked.

That example is correct, and even if Hasbro trademarked Equestria, they'd have to trademark it in a specific category. If they trademark it in regards to their show, then we'd be fine because we're not producing a series, movie, or animation. We're developing a video game. Copyright is where we have to worry, if any worry is due.

intellectual property rights, let's leave it at that.  do YOU want to scrounge up 10000000 USD worth of lawyer fees and a couple thousand pages of documents and months in court?

They've shut down other sites before.  Don't think that they won't shut this site down if somepony oversteps boundaries.  They usually don't bother, but if Legends of Equestria attempts to file suit against somepony for DDoS, that will put the site itself on Hasbro's radar, and that would be... bad.

By the way, I had stayed awake that long because I was craving sugar for some reason, so I kept fueling myself with more and more sugar until the craving was gone. In the end, when I ran out of junk food, I got desperate enough to eat pure sugar. :I I have no idea what that was about.

i havee been runing on energy drinks for 4 days straight to  make a Product in autodesk  Inventor.
ended up drinking for around 30$ worth of Monster Energy...
but  it dont mater... i got it for free (I got 5 Crates of monster for Freeee :D) and i got Full satisfaction from the customer!

Careful with those. It's much more dangerous than going on a sugar binge. Caffeine overdose isn't fun at all, and people end up in the hospital for drinking too many energy drinks in a certain amount of time. X3 There should be a small box somewhere on the back of each Monster can that says not to drink more than a certain number within 24 hours.

I'm not sure how that's possible. :I Though, if you do start shaking and/or feeling nauseous, then you should stop because those are early signs of caffeine overdose. Another thing to worry about is caffeine addiction. It is a drug, in the stimulant category, and it's addictive.

As long I have heard, more than 4 days awake is totally mortal for any human so, for just a job you could have died. Staying longer awake won't end in a sleep collapse, but in a total cerebral shut down.

In other things, at least in Red Bull and Burn you can clearly see that they don't suggest you to drink more than three cans in a day. However, those things have too many calories. With just one can you can fuel a mid age man to make him run for 3 hours or more. Just think about it.

Oh, I forgot, she is right, guys. caffeine and taurine are addictive. I reached a point in my life that I could even smell red bull and Monster Energy from far, and when I got that smell inside my nose, my brain was constantly teasing me how good would be that liquid through my mouth. Yes, scary, this is why I have given up that kind of drinks.

Not to mention that scientists have said that caffeine withdrawal is as bad as nicotine withdrawal. I went withdrawal before I ever knew caffeine was addictive. I had wondered why I was getting headaches, feeling so high-strung, irritable, and emotional, and why I had a dream where I paid $20 for a tiny cup of coffee. Oh yeah, you have dreams about whatever you're having withdrawal from.

Addiction is a scary world. :c Especially considering, even if you quit whatever it is, that addiction isn't completely destroyed. It's just lurking in the back of your mind, waiting to tempt you back into it.

So guys, be careful and responsible this weekend. X3

I wonder if they're also testing stresses on lots of people downloading it. There'll likely be a lot more people downloading it at the same time when it comes out for real, after all.

I hope not.  As I've mentioned in my introduction post, I've done a slew of alpha and beta testing, and I've also "hacked" quite a number of games, whether to find vulnerabilities and report them, or just to be mean (but I haven't done THAT in ages).  Considering the game test is NOT a secret, there are a few things that should be expected:

1)  Either a single person or a collected group may purposely jam up the direct download link for the client as a denial-of-service attempt.
2)  The same as above or a second party might purposely grab the client, quickly add a virus, mirror it, and see how many people they can down.
3)  Meanwhile, groups 1 and 2 will share the real client around with a bunch of their friends, and they'll all flood the server with fake or real login requests for another DDOS.

I call it the "4chan effect" -- they've done this to quite a number of online games in the past.  When Trickster first launched, they not only managed all of the above, but they flooded the server with real accounts and had a player sitting on every single available space to stand in near the main buildings, effectively blocking anyone from completing any quests, while spouting filth and memes.

Hey, just my personal experience.

Well, at least so far, I haven't been contacted by any of my former groups about if I want in on an attack or test.  Then again, I haven't had an invite since starting watching the show around February or March of 2011.  The last time I had an urge to meanly mess with anyone's online games, professional or fanmade, I had a mental image of Fluttershy yelling at me, and decided against it.

I do know that a good number of former attack persons are watching the show and contributing 3D, vector, and standard art, music, animation, stories, and the like.  Let's just hope that the ones responsible for the more organized attacks have all had as much of a change of heart as I have.

exactly my concern, but Tekner thinks there's no problem at all, and that there's no possible way that any of that can happen.  Now, I really, really put a lot of faith in the programming team, but calling yourself invulnerable is asking to be hacked imho.

Oh man.  No files released until an hour after they're put into the wild at the convention.  This might not end well... it won't take much to keep people from getting the client, and thousands of people refreshing a page looking for a DDL or torrent link might be enough to kill servers right then and there.

Let's just say that if I were at the convention and had a high-speed net connection, I could probably single-handedly overload the servers if I were maliciously against this succeeding.  I pray that nobody like that will be there.  I've already started putting together a list of things I can do that will let me still be a moment's rearrangement away from getting on the game if things work out, and I'm waiting to see if there's anything worth doing away from home that are worthwhile enough to not participate in this test.

I refuse to post exactly what I'd do so that someone can't copycat it, but let's just say that if this were something based on Twilight or The Hunger Games, I'd actually think of doing some damage... no matter what the Fluttershy voice in my head would say.

begging pardon?

Charcoal mentioned the ease with which a single server is brought down, and from there I don't think it quite a stretch to imagine two or more backups going the same way if the threat is as large as it seems.  Regardless, perhaps a crash would be a good learning experience and preparation for when the "real thing" begins.

I wonder if the server makes use of multicast, probably.  It would reduce the amount of data that is sent out-bound from the server by a lot.  that being said, it really boils down to how much data is sent to the server at a time.

The game, .exe, whatever it's going to be is safe right?

By that I mean it doesn't have any viruses, malware, spyware, etc?

Of course.  If there was any issues your antivirus(I assume you have one) would see an issue anyways.

Erm, well, then again, avast seems to think my VB program is a virus and I had to add an exception to get it out of the "sandbox".  I Lol'd, I think i'd know if my own program was a virus....

ooh, off topic, I re-installed windows XP on my "laptop"
Spoiler: Remember my Laptop? • show

So I should be able to install VB on it and continue programming!(Considering for whatever reason VB's dll files aren't compatible with Windows 7...)

VB? Um... what's that?

Also... I have Avast too. But I also have SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes, and Comodo Firewall for additional protection. This is because I've had too many issues in the past with getting viruses.

It's funny, I think i've forgotten almost everything i've learned in programming class in high school, and that was ....5 years ago.  Almost everything i've programmed at home was self taught, especially the calculator as I initially had no idea whatsoever what I was doing.

I tried self-teaching myself HTML/CSS as well, and I understood some of it for a while, but without a website to practice on I can't do much.  I tried installing WAMP on my computer to practice on wordpress and I think my ISP blocks port 80 as I can't even connect to PHPMyAdmin on localhost.....Iz mad  :l

AFAIK, you can do whatever you want, there will no doubt be videos of gameplay posted on youtube at some point this weekend, unless I hear differently.

But really, just downloading the game and being on the server will help the team, that's the true point of the stress test.

If I remember correctly:
Earth Pony starts in good old Ponyvile
Unicorn starts in the high and mighty Canterlot
Pegasus starts in fluffy Cloudsdale

Intercity transport is unknown to me.

Pray worry not about that, of what I know is that the 'transport' is pretty instant from Ponyvile to Canterlot, from a train-station.

And, the question seems to have been as of which areas is available for exploration, and I think they have done some of Canterlot, most of ponyvile, some or most of everfree, most of sweet apple acres, and some other minor zones.
Also, with me saying done I mean to say they have the world of the area, but no NPCs nor other devices to interact with, or at least very few of that.

Also, do take note that I might be quite mistaken with this, as I'm but a mere follower LoE, and have little to no look into the game itself.

Edit: I also recall, when I had a go with this game at Galacon, the spawn was set to ponyvile for all races, so I think it will be the same for this test.
Again, I do admit I can be mistaken on this.

Anyway if it isn't permanent I don't think I will have enough time to try all 3 races , and test out ALL the games capabilities.Also do you guys have a sort of chart for everything a pony can do in the game?It will be helpful during testing because when I test I take it seriously , and try to do everything possible in every possible way.

Also, I personally feel that it matters not with such a minor thing.

Umm, well, of what I can gather, this is only a stress test, and they hardly have any of the mechanics for the races available, only thing I know of is that Pegasus can fly, earth are quicker, and unicorn, have not anything much, maybe they have a teleport effect, or that fireball effect. But again, only novelties.
So, I do recommend that you just relax and use this opportunity to just try the game with some friends and have fun in there. As the one before told, it's only this weekend that one can play it.
Also, again, I'm but a mere follower, I can not say anything about this with any certainty at all, but I daresay, this info is what I've gathered from the team from different occasions, but I might have misheard, or in other ways misunderstood some of the info.

What's really fun is when you're playing an online game where not only dos a character go invisible, but their hitbox is tied to their appearance, so they end up with a one pixel hitbox.

I'm making progress on all sorts of old games while waiting.  I'm still debating whether I'll play the part of a single player in stress testing once we're past the "site down" and "client distribution down" problems (yes, I fully expect the client to be near impossible to get to the masses), or whether I'll multiply myself like a parasprite and do the stress of dozens or more.

Maybe on day 3 if things are still running...

test it t its limits; it's what they're asking for anyways, and I say that in all seriousness.  If the current crowd is a problem, just think how it will be when the game actually comes out and the crowd is a hundred times bigger.

Conflicted on whether it would be worth the time to play

Just to reiterate, it's pre alpha  :(

Ill stick with WoT, but the fact this alpha will be out says the actual game is not THAT far off (I hope)

Looks like I'll be installing in ten minutes or thereabouts, even with the computers around me doing all sorts of various stuff.  I'll kill off most of everything and concentrate on seeding the torrent and playing the game once I notice the download is done.

Got it installed, but it so far fails to connect to the server. So I guess that could be the first bug.

Edit; That said, the login screen does look nice, much better than most other online game login screens I've seen.

Edit 2; So been attempting login for a few minutes now, it does seem like the servers arent offically open yet, because the game is telling me its failing to establish a connection.

A torrent is peer-2-peer, so if there's enough seeding (people uploading), you can download at your max speed. Mediafire has a set speed limit which is usually around 150 kilobytes per second on these sites for free users.

Extract the .zip file somewhere and then run the LoE.exe file. If you don't have a program to extract it, try 7-zip or winrar.

It's not working. I really don't even understand what's happening. I clicked the first download link because it's recommended, I got the torrent file, and I dragged and dropped the torrent file onto my desktop. If I double-click, it just opens a tab in Google Chrome to have me download the same exact torrent file.

You have to use a Software like BitTorrent to download the Torrent with help of the Torrent file, maybe just use the Mediafire (Torrent is just recommended, because its an community based way to provide files)

How're you downloading it? How is ANYONE downloading it? All I got was a torrent file, and I don't know what to do with it.


There should be 2 other buttons below the torrent download button for both OSX and Windows if you don't torrent. If you can't get the download from those, you could try the Facebook page.

You mean the alternate links aren't torrent files? :c I feel stupid.

I got to fly around for 5 minutes before the sever went down for an update..... and it was the greatest 5 minutes of my life.

Albeit quite a laggy five minutes, but I choose to blame my awful computer.  X3

Almost 30 minutes later... I pressed the W key. A few seconds later, the loading screen went away, and I was greeted with a blue ground, black hills, Ponyville houses, my pegasus is pink and bald, there's a pink floating pony, a white floating pony, and a brown-and-white pony next to me, all bald. The white pony is staring toward me with pink eyes. Oh, and the game's screen is still frozen.

:I I waited half an hour for a nightmare.

And my computer says virtual memory is too low.

[Edit]: Minimap and chat loaded, my pegasus is flying for some reason, and there's a scroll that says my connection timed out. I was about to click "Return to Menu", but the game is frozen again. :c

To check your HDD space go to start menu then my computer if you're on XP and it should show how much memory your HDD has as Local disk C or something similar.

If you have plenty of memory left you can increase your virtual memory which may at least let the game run correctly if you don't have much RAM.

If you want a step by step walk through on increasing your virtual memory I can show you how. It may make it playable but theres no Guarantee. It's not actually that hard at all I can even provide a picture guide. Lacking in virtual memory and RAM may be why it isn't loading the areas but I'm not sure. As CPU and other factors play a part in it as well.

Correction. I extracted another instance of the game out of the .zip file to make sure the malfunction on windows XP doesn't result from a wrong modification made by wine while not running the game correctly and the result:

it works just fine. Problem solved. I'm kindly grateful for your help, SweBow. Keep up the good work. *totally not quoting Twilight with that last sentence.*

That actually happened to me on the Luna Server, it took awhile to load ponyville after I left everfree it eventually loaded though.

Do you get the memory low error after the game starts?

Yes. :c


If you want a step by step walk through on increasing your virtual memory I can show you how. It may make it playable but theres no Guarantee. It's not actually that hard at all I can even provide a picture guide. Lacking in virtual memory and RAM may be why it isn't loading the areas but I'm not sure. As CPU and other factors play a part in it as well.

Yes please.

Ok first go to the start menu then my computer judging by that screenshot you're in XP right? I need to know how much space your hard drive has before virtual memory can be adjusted.

Hovering the mouse over local disk c will tell you your hard drive memory.

Alright you have plenty of space to increase the virtual memory.

Now I need you to go to start menu control panel performance and maintenance. Then click adjust visual effects. After that goto the advanced tab and tell me how much Virtual Memory is assigned. it should be on the bottom of the advanced window. Don't change anything there yet though.

I'm not sure. But if you are getting a low memory error then it usually means it's not enough. try setting maximum and initial to 2048 the general rule is to set virtual memory double your RAM but because you get that error it likely needs more.

I think someone on IRC said the game tried to using 1500MB of RAM and Virtual Memory is Virtual RAM. so 2048 may help. but the problem with Virtual RAM is it's slower then normal RAM.

Never ever decrease your memory though unless you know what you are doing.

Wait, set my minimum AND maximum to that? o.O Wha... When I got the "Low Virtual Memory" thing, the bubble said it was expanding my memory. So, I should leave room for it to expand if it wants, right?


Guys, the download should be on www.legendsofequestria.com UNDER the thing that says they're updating the webpage. So, scroll down and you should see the download links. I recommend the Mediafire mirrors if you don't know how to torrent.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 28, 19:53:37
If you set both min and max it doesn't need to expand because it's already expanded if I'm recalling this correctly.

Which should help load times hopefully.

Edit :
Yeah, Ponyville is probably the issue you are having it uses 1500MB on my PC sometimes more for other people, so 2048 might let you run it.

It depends on how much RAM you have if you have low RAM programs can act weird sometimes. if you have at least 2GB the game will probably run fine I assume, if you don't have enough RAM then you can set virtual memory which may or may not help.

And it's different how you set your Virtual Memory depending on if you Have windows vista/7 or windows xp.

Not a bug, but more of an "exploit" I found. There is a very simple(Too simple.  ovO ) way to change maps, and fly/move to a place inaccessable to people running the normal map. I was able to get to Appaloosa using this method. Do you think devs would like a report on this?

Hmm, if you have plenty of RAM then I'm not sure why it's not loading other then that it's pre-alpha  :c

So it just stays at loading and never goes farther?


Yeah. :c

Well, Trege. It took a long time for the game to load me into Ponyville, and I got the connection lost thingy again, but this time, the game loaded more than it did last time! The ponies got color, there were pegasus wings flapping, and there was MUSIC!!! O: Such a great achievement!

I managed to click return to menu, and it froze for a bit, the scroll disappeared, a tutorial window opened, the game froze for a little while, and now I'm back on the main menu. X3

What server did you try currently Crysalis is working well again and Luna is stable as well from what I can see being in game.

And if the low memory error is gone now we just have to determine what's disconnecting you.

It was Crysalis. Now I'm trying Luna. The low memory error bubble didn't appear this time.

Does the game disconnect you if your pony is idle for 30 minutes or something? That may be why I'm disconnected as soon as the loading screen goes away.

Theres no idle timer as far as I can tell. I went afk on the clock tower for a long time as my Pegasus OC and it stayed connected.

Theres something else that may help, but it depends on if you like the look of classic windows or not. If you set windows to classic mode it will use less resources. as it may be your CPU that's causing you to get D/Ced or overall computer lag.

To get the best results telling windows to set your PC for best performance may help a lot as well. It can be found in the adjust visual effects area of the control panel then you hit apply after picking adjust for best performance.

You have to hold the "toggle flight key(?) to move up/dpwn on the x axis, you land when you hit the ground

I think it's toggle flight, I changed my controls the second I started so it's right control for me.

I've ben having trouble getting connected, I'll log in and when I pick a server it'll go for a little bit and It'll stop responding. I'm fairly sure it's not a memory issue (I've got 8G of RAM) Would it just be because it's pre-alpha and everyone's trying to get in at the same time?

I've tried Dissy and Chrysalys so far, but looking through here, Luna seems to befairly stable so I'll give that one a try next and post an edit to this if I can get through.

Try holding space to jump it sometimes gets you out of the ground it's also how you swim in water, if that doesn't work you may have to remake your character generally that fixes most of the stuck in abyss or ground issues.

Couldn't figure out the advice, and my question hasn't been replied to yet, so I'm gonna try logging on again, on the Crysalis server. The fact that my connection wasn't timed out last time gives me some hope.
I wish Norton would shut up about high memory usage, though. If Norton's dragging me down, I wish I could turn the stupid antivirus off.

Has anyone else noticed that there's a Fluttershy tree and some birch dryads in the Ponyville loading screen? They're near the bottom right.

Okay... back again, still can't seem to get past server selection, the game freezes up and stops responding after I pick the server. and when I close it out, and reopen, it'll freeze at the logging in part and I'll have to restart my computer in order for me to get back to the server select  I've tried letting it sit like that for at least half an hour like that hoping it'll unfreeze and still no luck.

Nope. Last time I got past the loading screen (I still had to wait about 30 minutes), it didn't disconnect me, and it actually loaded my pony's colors and mane and tail. But it lagged horribly to where it'd just freeze, then a little bit later, ponies would change positions, then it'd freeze again.

I'm not sure how much more your willing to adjust, on your PC but if it's staying connected but being horribly laggy it's likely ponyville's fault still and the amount of player models that are in Ponyville currently if it were possible for you to switch areas like anywhere besides ponyville it would probably work.

Anyways there's two more things you can try to get the game working.
One is adjust your graphics card to performance mode from your desktop. The other thing you can try is to set the games video quality to low quality if you can get a menu to load in game once the town loads.

I had a discussion with LemonDrop in the "A intresting problem" thread on the LoE Discussion board, and... I don't have a graphics card, but rather a chip set that pretends to be one. I'm gonna need to get one, and if we can't afford it, I'll just ask for one for Christmas or something.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 29, 01:47:38
You can still adjust the chipset usually though it depends on what type of chip set it is my cousins laptop had one and you could change a few settings on it for performance.

And if you want I can show you a few good priced Graphics cards.

(Although maybe it will be better for me to post the adjustment information in that topic itself if you both are having the same issue.)

Indeed, we're both having the same issue and we both keep being spawned in the same exact spot whenever we get past the loading screen. o_o Stuck in the ground, possibly in front of a river, with an oddly angled view of the plaza.

I had a little trouble logging in initially, but it sounds like a few people are having similar trouble. Cleared up once I got connected for the first time.

Biggest thing I noticed was that in windowed mode my framerate was terrible, but switching to full screen at my desktop resolution cleared up just about all of it. I was actually kind of surprised at how relatively good the framerate was. Of course using the mouse to angle up/down while flying during a frame spike tended to send my pegasus careening in random directions. Was fun.  :D

After that I just ran/flew around a bit to check out all the areas, noticed both obvious and probably less obvious alignment issues with stuff and some things with the character model, but I'm going to save any nitpicking for alpha/beta/etc as you'll no doubt catch most of the stuff I spotted before then. World first, details second.  ^-^

I'll probably nitpick about the chat log and camera/movement controls at some point though as those are probably the two biggest things I like a certain way, but it's just personal preference there, and really depends on what they're like later on.

All in all, I had fun during my little romp and will probably pop on a little more this weekend when I'm not working.

So, I'm spawned in Ponyville on the Crysalis server. I'm not sure, but I think I see some kind of particle effect above me, as if I'm under a waterfall. I'm under the ground, apparently under a path, according to the minimap, facing the river with a bridge on either side. The minimap says I'm at The Hospital.

I swear, if there is a waterfall above me, that's why I'm lagging so bad. :I I can't move. My fps is wayyyy low. But I took a screenshot, so I guess if I give up, I'll try to save the screenshot to show you what I mean.

Wait, now there's a water effect below me. What? o.O I'm pretty sure that's what that is, at least. But I'm not in or under the river.

Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 29, 03:52:36
Try holding space the jump button if it's not too laggy. I've been spawned underneath the ground before and the game has water under the world.

It also made splash effects so holding space should slowly take you out of the ground.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Chishio Kunrin on 2012 Sep 29, 03:54:15
It's doing that lag where it's frozen, and the screen changes what it's frozen at every once in a while. :l I just hit Esc about a minute or two ago, and the little menu finally came up.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 29, 03:55:48
If you can navigate to the settings with all that lag you can adjust the video settings of the game itself which would help the fps.

With a very laggy screen that may take awhile.

(I kind of wish you could adjust the settings from the login menu it would be much easier for laggy PC's.)

Implement the settings into the login menu after this please! >A< Please, team? Please?

I'm very very very very slowly making my way to the video settings while stuck underground because my pony won't respond to Spacebar due to lag. I'm not exactly sure how I'm gonna slide the sliders when it takes a minute to register a click.

One of the first things you want to try and change is the resolution lowering that can lower a lot of strain on the hardware. So in the video settings see if you can get 640x480. You know if LoE has a config file I could set everything to low then give you that but I don't think it does.

If there is one, that might be what Swebow messaged me about, but I think my computer can't find it. :\ Trying my best. For some reason, the chat is updating faster than my cursor and my clicks.

The music's back. It's taking a minute for it to register that I clicked the resolution button.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Rissian on 2012 Sep 29, 04:13:22
It may take awhile depending on what they started the resolution on. I think mine started in 1024 or so and I had to cycle through them all to get to 640x480.

Once you get the resolution set changing servers may also help depending on which one you picked. The Luna server has tons of video lag for me in ponyville. but runs fine in the other ones. like Crysalis that's where I usually am since Luna is stable but laggy,

Connection timed out while I was waiting for the resolution button to respond. Yay.

If you're on Windows Vista or 7, try running the game as administrator, and/or in compatibility mode.
I can't help you much beyond that unfortunately, but additionally if you post your specs here I may be able to assist you further.
When all fails, reinstall the game.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: mattwo on 2012 Sep 29, 07:30:08
There is no installation...

Also this happened the first time but it worked after I closed the game and tried again...

Also 7 64 bit has an instant compatibility mode for 32 bit...

It's emachines ET1331 AMD athalon II X2
Windows 7 64 bit
4GB ram 3.75 use able geforce 6150SE nforce 430

...wow mom's computer is not much more powerful than my own computer I thought it was better than this because mine can't use Adobe CS5 master collection...

The view from the air is truly something else in this. Everything felt right, in the sense of planning and the nature of it all. You really captured it well. Though one item that I did have a slight issue in wasn't anything but minor and not even with the game at all. It was figuring the darn right colors to pick, as im very unused to the rgb system for the right colors, though googling really helped there. So for an alpha, and early one, you've nailed this, and I really look forward to seeing this reach version 1.0. And I loved skimming near to the ground flying, so much fun to do, though I had the worst time avoiding the trees.

Personally I found flying really hard because of the laggy camera controls > . <
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Snowy on 2012 Sep 29, 07:45:54
The ONLY. ONLY. Problem I have with now is pretty much flying. Not because it lags, and not because the controls aren't working. Its because the camera was spinning, doing a complete  circle. It might be because i'm pressing  D to hard. But other then that, lag on crysalis is just to about a minimum and well... yeah. Everything is going great!

Well to reiterate my post, run the game as admin, run it in Windows XP compatibility mode, and if neither work, reinstall the game (i.e delete LoE folder, re-download the zip and re-extract)

Alright... I will.  :s

Let me see I've got the controls understood/down...

W, A, S, D = (move)

Space bar = (jump)

ESC (escape key) + "log out" = (log out of the game)

ESC (escape key) + "settings" = (settings)

CTRL (control key) + Down (S? Down arrow?) = (move down as pegasus while flying) ((<<< I'm not sure about this one... what are the controls for flying as a pegasus?)

Shift/hold Shift key = (run)

CTRL (control key) + holding down left mouse click = (attack/fireball for unicorns?)

Is this accurate?

Someone please fix this if I'm wrong.


P.S.: I WANT to try playing again... but... I like to do other things on weekends. If I'm able to play this game at all...

It might not be until late tonight...

((oh a glichy command this may be my fault i was testing them when i was compialing this list so if its my fault my deepest apologys))
Ok since you've added the controls on this page will add something that I haven't seen here and that available commands I do apologise if these are here somewhere already though

/help  -gives you all the commands
/bye -gives you the goodbye message and logs you out
Item commands
/inventory -tells you your inventoy in order
/additem x  -adds a item based on the numbered list given on page 1 just replace the x with a number e.g. /additem 21 to get an item
/wearitem x - this directly adds a equitable item from your backpack to your character but you have to use the item slot between 0-11 to do so e.g. /wearitem 0
/unwearall -removes all equipped items
/time x -changes the time based on the number entered (i find that 12 turns it to day)
Time for the obvious ones and emotes
/sit -allows you to sit
/facehoof -facehoofs
/stand -returns your charter to the original movement animations

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For all Ponies races:
Left Shift - Sprint
Left Alt key + middlemouse button - Head turning
Space - Jump
WASD - move around
1 and 2 - sit and facehoof (or click the small images)
Hold Right mousebutton if you wish to steer the character.

Pegasus:
Left Shift (While flying) - Fly faster
Q or E - Roll
R - Loop!
CTRL - Decend
Double Space - Fly
Hold right mousebutton to steer with mouse while flying.
3 - Excited

Unicorn:
Left shift + left mousebutton - fireball!

Earth:
Look on all ponies for now

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Those are all the commands I have gotten to work so far there are others I'm unsure of such as /e but these do work if you wish to have some fun

63 pages o_O well im not going to look through that many sorry :D
some bugs i noticed, when you sit and then hold left alt your head will spin mega fast, while its funny im sure thats not intended
if you log out as an pegasus mid air, then relog back in as another race you are stuck in midair and need to log back out and log in as a pegasus
stacking hats, currently walking around with 60 bookhats (additem 16 kind)
not really a bug this one but weird, when you are an pegasus and you keybinded movement as arrow keys left and right will keep on barrelrolling you instead of turning (not sure if this is intended? but its awkward flying)
some zones you fall through and get stuck, everfree, the trainstation staircase right behind the spawnpoint in canterlot
Also got stuck once leaving twilights library, not sure if that was lag or a bug though, luna server went down not much later after that


Other then that REALLY loving the game, music is also fitting on every zone you can visit so far, keep it up everypony!

edit: forgot one thing, for some reason F12 isn't saving my screenshots even though it says in game its doing it, is it going in another folder or also a bug?
Title: Re: Want to play?

We know about all those sit bugs, headspin etc. Reason why we haven't fixed them is because we're going to switch out the pony model.

Try to run as an administrator and see if screenshot works.

Teleport is most likely disabled because it requires a lot a computations to take one chuck of data and move it somewhere else. To a server, thats little more than sneezing, but having it sneezes hundreds of times at once would crash it easily. Flying is movement so it is easy, but a pony is more complex than a fireball so they cant have ponies warping all over the place. Plus with how buggy things are, you'd probably be more likely to get stuck in a building or being trapped mid warp. But this is only stuff i have seen from other mmos. They might not have that problem. Also i love the sitting movement glitch. I kinda wanna make a pegasus and see if flight is possible while sitting (since you can jump while sitting).

Maybe you hid the interface (I think it's F1). If that wasn't the case, it was probably a loading issue, especially after coming out of a warp.

I'm trying to see if maybe there's a way I can attempt to play/LP/livestream this again...

I went into the Everfree, and decided to be a derp and fly into one of the giant gaping holes in the ground. Now I'm floating in an endless void with nothing but the moon to be seen. Is this a glitch, something that hasn't been made yet, or something intentional? I can't seem to be able to locate the ground... Also, I love how the game plays and such ^^ So much fun...

you run into an "end of the world" you are actually in the nothing, due the creators didnt put invisi walls to save you... you will keep falling forever unless you attemp fly or ask teleportation

So... I have time.

Perhaps... I'll turn my laptop on again...

Change some game settings... try to get a server to work... try to get a pony/my pony to work... and play again.

Of course I'll be recording and livestreaming it as well again. Maybe. I'll post again when I'm 100% sure as I am not 100% right now.

I'll be playing as one of my OC's, hopefully Mage Heart again. But if I'm not him it'll be one of my other OC's in the OC thread I made in the OC thread on here.

So... yeah... look for one of them.

:P

Yeah, I'm a pegasus, so I can fly, but for all I know I could be flying downwards XD. A had to quit the game to eat dinner maybe it's reset the spawn... If not, then I'll just ask for a teleport, then.

Went in as my other character and now I'm stuck at the spawn point, and can't move... At least people finally stopped spamming the chat XD *goes to make new character that can be played*

you have to download the right files and then extract them where you can find it. extracting 1 file such as "LoE.exe" will not run the game itself so you have extract everything in one place where you can find them.

Hats fixed, chat cannot be fixed now. It needs a client update.
Title: Re: Want to play?
Post by: Ründo on 2012 Sep 29, 22:08:15
I figured the chat was client side problem.

I wonder you guys will add a safety at some point to send ponies who fell thru the ground back to the surface. like if they fall to a low enough elevation they simply get teleported back to the surface.

and Yes I've noticed that there are very few bugs.  but plenty of lag issues. Is something not being dumped properly. or is it a communication issue?

Yes! Exactly. Not trying to ruin anyones fun but.. who needs a tower of hats if its gonna make an entire room lag. I had to leave that server because someone had a hat tower of like 69 hats or something...bad enough ponyville is like number one lag place in the game right now.

The team may already know about this, but when you change the resolution, it makes the game's window smaller, which can cause a bit of a problem on the title menu. Some of the server buttons end up off-screen. We're gonna need a way to scroll down to server buttons if we have the window too small.

Currently trying to see if the game will run on my netbook, by the way. In my opinion, this is a crazy idea because, well, it's a netbook with Windows 7 and 1 GB memory. But it has a graphics card and my desktop doesn't, so it's worth a try.

I know what's going on my Christmas list. X3

[Edit]: Although I question whether it was a good idea or not, I've changed my netbook's virtual memory to minimum 1500 maximum 2000. I don't know what it was originally because it was set to automatically adjust with a starting point of 16, I think.

Plus... it's not very exciting to watch... especially when I can never seem to find anyone I know.

I have two videos of this so that should be good enough. I'll upload those tomorrow.

I don't think I'll be livestreaming me playing the Pre Alpha anymore because it's just not exciting to watch.

However that doesn't mean I won't play it. I probably will later.

Honestly; Not even that far in.

I've got the Torrent downloaded and that's about it :P

Oh. Torrents are kind of complicated, I think. I posted some instructions on how to get the game here: http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=4873.msg371796#msg371796

I kinda hope they turn some of the more fun bugs (like flank racing/flying) in even if they turn it into a command. That would be pretty funny. I mean, facehoofing is good but sliding around on your flank is hilarious.

Well, we would need a mirror server of one of the actual servers. But of course, that requires time, money, and security codes that nopony has. Plus, it'd be only one server and considering how much the servers did when there were too many users or hat towers, it would die shortly after everyone logged into it lol

It kind of loaded, and then my connection timed out. But it seems to have loaded the environment better than my desktop. No weird coloration this time. Last time, the hills were green and yellow striped.


Did the world load faster than on your desktop? If the world loaded completely then something else may be causing the timeout. Or is it still skippy and laggy?

1500 min 2000 maximiun is actually good for your laptop's pagefile since it has only 1GB of RAM on Windows 7. It will prevent crashing from lack of memory not to mention Windows 7 handles memory better then XP does.

It completely loaded the world, even better than my desktop did. But it loaded to where I was just viewing the plaza from that weird angle again, and I think it didn't load my pony yet. The "Connection timed out" scroll could've been covering it. I didn't see any other ponies, though. That, and I was still lagging.

At least now I know that having a graphics card is part of the solution, and I'll make plans to try to get my hands on one that's good and compatible with my desktop.

Dear LoE team.

This has been an amazing weekend, and what you guys showed this weekend was Way beyond my expetations.
I was even amazed my old Computer could run it... well...harddisk broke after 30 min (dunno what happend)
but i borrowed a friends computer, i had a grand time just running around exploring and chatting with friends.
keep up the good work, and i wish you all a good time forwards.

Best regards

Ps: I only got stuck once... and my luck it was when there aparrently werent any admins online

Luna server was AWESOME. Because when I joined I apparently came into a recording for an LP!!  :3

Tekner, or one of the other team members decided to put the mini game as a wishing well in Ponyville. Just touching it will place you inside the mini game.

Well... as the saying goes...

"All good things must come to an end"

I've deleted everything to do with the Pre Alpha of this game.  DD:

Oh well.

Hey team... will you do something like this again? I really hope you do... I feel like this was REALLY successful and you SHOULD do something like this again but that's just IMO.

Do you guys think they'll do something like this again? I certainly hope they do... I'll just cross my fingers and hope for the best I suppose.

P.S.: I'm going to try to upload my POV recorded videos of this game now before going to bed. I'll post them somewhere in the forum tomorrow I guess. Though I'm not exactly sure where to post them...  :s

Ah well. I'll figure something out. That or PM someone who can tell me where I can post them.

I have deleted it. The people that were on a while ago weren't... The nicest of people, to say the least. Didn't really feel like playing.

And since I won't be able to play tomorrow... I guess that's it for my Pre-Alpha run of Legends Of Equestria. :)

That was fun you guys, I really, really enjoyed it.

Got to see everypony I know from the forums (Either for a short or long time), had tons of insane fun with them, I explored the hay out of what we had to explore, was one of the first people ever to find an Easter Egg in a Pre-Alpha (Magus, Nameless and LCS, I enjoyed that! And I still think we should get a Swag-Finders badge here on the forums. B) ), tried to glitch my way to Tarta- I mean, I was exploring the hay out of the Boutique area  0:) , There were some Pony-Kart races, flying races, Hide N' Seek... You name it!  :]

I... Man I'll miss this game untill the next test. I enjoyed it very, very, VERY much.

Congratulations to the team behind this... It was magnificent. Even with all the expected (and hilarious) glitches, the black boxes below Ponyville that have an unknown purpose (TELL ME WHAT THOSE ARE... Please?) and the messed up filter (You need to filter other languages too guys, I saw a bad word in Spanish earlier. I can help with that, should you need the assistance). It was fantastic. I can not wait for the full release. Great job guys.

To finish this off, I should tell you ponies who'll keep playing, if you want to troll someone in there, tell them to type this command: /additem -1

Hilarity ensues!... And probably some name calling but... Well, it all ends tomorrow! So why not? lol

The black boxes were placed there as placeholders for knowing general layout of ponyville, and to serve as organizers for the various house blocks in the scene.  They should have been just done with an empty GameObject, but they had cubes attached to them for some reason, and were never removed.

On another note, I'm now resetting the login server to require you to have a higher game access again.  Hope you all had fun.

Man, I have to admit that was the most fun I've ever had in a sandbox with nothing to actually do.
I played hide and seek with riddles,
Hosted the first grand Pegasus race, (Hope to do these things again.)
Busted out dance moves at Sugarcube corner. (We totally need some living tombstone, Mic the Microphone et al, going off in there.)
And pretended to be a samurai Pony in the Everfree.
And of course tried to break the swear filter. (Had to see what it was actually capable of censoring after it refused to let me type Basement... seriously - is that to stop people from talking about Cupcakes?)
Personally I prefer to ponify my swearing on the server.
Had a wonderful conversation with a pony named Adolf Hitler.. (To whom somebody pointed out that Tara Strong was Jewish... and he kinda didn't have a comeback for that.)
And Loved and Tolerated some random Trolls who appeared to be very into clop.

But overall, I think the community was great... The feeling of the game was close to the spirit of the show.

Looking forward to starting my own Herd (Guild?) when it officially comes out.

I missed all the fun today (stupid graphics driver >..<), but I had a TON of fun the first 2 days. For being in the stage it's in, I can honestly say I had more fun there than I've had on any other MMO. Playing hide 'n go seek in the mines, crazy dance parties at Sugar Cube Corner, actually getting lost in the Everfree....flying like a drunk cause of lagg. X3  And just over all goofing off and having a good time. I've been a brony for a while, but, this being the first real interaction I've had with others was just absolutely the best time I've had, so really it was a double treat for me. I got to be a part of a test in the beginnings of an awesome game, and I got to hang out with some amazing people.  :D So thanks to all those I met in game for a wonderful time, and thank you creators of this awesome game and allowing me to participate in one of it's milestones.  ^-^

Drat. Was hoping I could drop in one last time since I worked all weekend and was limited time-wise. Ah well, just means I can start anticipating the next time now.

All in all, I spotted a few glitches, bugs, misaligned meshes and other minor things, but nothing too serious and nothing you guys won't likely catch. And I will admit, for not having anything to do but explore and since I didn't chat much I still had a lot of fun.

I agree, the game brought me much fun even in pre alpha stage. I understand what pre alpha is and asking now would be quite silly but could you keep up at least one server for us if you receive enough donations? I will understand if you refuse.

According to my knowledge if they accept donations they run the risk of getting a Cease & Desist letter from Hasbro, since they're reproducing trademarked and copyrighted material and getting some form of profit out of it. That's why in LoE there are absolutely no (pony) characters from the show included in the game, and there won't be festivals with names like Winter Wrap Up or The Grand Galloping Gala either.

Busted out dance moves at Sugarcube corner. (We totally need some living tombstone, Mic the Microphone et al, going off in there.)

They'll have music by various brony artists in a dance club called Stable 54. :) It's gonna be awesome!

By the way, devs, are you guys going to have a screen somewhere in Stable 54 that says what song by what artist is playing? I think that would be great. One thing I don't like about radio is that if I hear a song I like and I don't know who it's by, it makes my search for the song harder later.

YAY  :o Buuuuut... Will it be the same? Except with like more features or stuff? I'm so sad I was so stuck to LoE

There might be a few changes, but they'll be changes to make things better. And yes, there will be lots more features and stuff.

They can just call the great galloping gala, a Ball? I mean, isn't THAT would the grand gala is? But I guess they'd think of something. I still do want that to be an event because its fun! But yeah, the game is over. I cant wait till its open again, the game was interesting and fun :D The cheerilee server was the funnest i've been on  :D

This is the thing. Our server is not illegal at all. The server can run other games if we so want. Right now the LoE client can connect to it. So no, donations should be alright. It will never go to any copyrighted material.

I wish I could've played more, but there were a bit to many immature people  DD: and the fact I never could actually connect. I really enjoyed it.. until I found out dubstep played in Sugarcube Corner, so that's one place I'm never going in. But I wish I could've seen more of y'all when I could connect, it was fun sitting by a timberwolf all the time.  ^-^ I can't wait to talk to Joey the Timberwolf again....

I kind of wonder if that music will be moved to Stable 54 when it's done and open, and they'll put the old Sugarcube Corner music back in Sugarcube Corner. I kind of hope that'll happen, since dubstep hardly seems appropriate for a bakery. Hot Topic? Sure. A night club? Yes indeedy.

Yeah most likely Sugarcube Corner is just a placeholder for Stable 54.
...wherever that is. I never really followed any of its topics.

LoE Last pony watch. its 11:07 am and ponyvil still looks beautiful as ever. the npcs are as full of life as ever with their varied names and strength to stand up for so long. Time Right is now looking around for more parkour routes and has come to like a little red hat known at item 37. I will keep you all up to date on my watch of the server as probably the last pony to be in LoE Pre-Alpha.

(I know double post but i feel the praise must be seen on its own. the team deserves every single bit (the currency too) of praise they get)

Update. at 11:58 am the server final said shutting down and i was sent back to the main menu. i could have just stayed in that screen but i thought it dragged it out long enough. the fun was there and without other ponies I might have started having conversations with the npcs... Luna forbid that happening. as the last pony to be in the pre-alpha i would like to say that every drawn out second even when I was alone for 9 hours... wow 9. any hoof every second was amazing. I finally reached a spot I was dieing to reach as a unicorn. i have to thank everypony behind this and hope I will see everpony else in the alpha or beta versions! Even then think about the released version! thank you every pony

Correct. Antlershy is the one who worked on getting the stream working, and sugarcube was merely the test scene.  It was never changed, because, as you should have noticed, there was no nightclub scene.

Guys. i really think you should close this. Looks like some are confused by the fact that it is still opened.

But anyway.
It was really fun to play while we could. i was surprised at the selection of cutie marks. You even had one that reminded me of mine. Didn't see that one coming. I made some nice screens of my pony and now i will wait for the open beta.

Until next time.

I hope I find one of a snowflake in beta, I had to use three ice shards for my cutie mark, and about half the ponies that had the word "Ice" or "Snow" in there names had that one. Not that it bothered me but still. And like I said it many other post...I hope they add a luna hair style  :P and a snow leopard...

Thanks!  :D
