Here's the place to ask questions for this upcoming maintenance which I shall strive to answer during the 3pm Tuesday live show.
For this week's recipe:
A delicious authentic Tiki restaurant appetizer (and wholly inauthentic "Asian" appetizer), Crab Rangoon is our subject for today. Fried and stuffed (if done right) with cream cheese and crab it is a very good pair for the Tiki cocktail of your choice. During the height of the midcentury, you could find these at nearly all Polynesian themed bars and restaurants.
Attached is a sliiiightly healthier version of the original recipe from the Food Thread on Tiki Central that is baked instead of fried. All credit goes to the original author of the recipe. I have tried this (albeit using cheap-o imitation krab) and it comes out rather well.
Oven-fried Crab Rangoon
You can of course fold the wonton skins in half, forming the familiar triangle, but for true 1960s authenticity (and this might not work as well when baked) you fold them into little packages like in the video below. This really adds a little bit of class to the dish! If you guys actually try these recipes, please shout out in the comments.
With RWC being this weekend does iRO have any server events planned considering we will not be going?
We do not have any RWC themed events planned. However we do have thanksgiving and a refine event going in this week.
Hey Oda can you and WP crew make a cooking video?
Yes, that's something that I think would be fun to do but we aren't able to cook at the office-it'd have to be filmed elsewhere.
What are your responses to the new Steam users regarding automatically closed tickets and people having trouble connecting?
The GM team should not be closing tickets without responses. Please give Oda some ticket numbers and Oda would be happy to look into it. Oda is pleased
will there be a thanksgiving event this year or we just waiting til xmas?
Yes, we are putting in multiple Thanksgiving quests this week.
can we PLEASE get Cold Breath as a quest reward for xmas? in fact a costume cold breath would be even better...
We have not received new item data, some new new items we may not have the sprite data for yet.
Is it possible to bring back the warping NPC to the extra Izlude channels? with the change that newly made characters will always spawn in channel one to avoid confusion.
It's something we can look into, as it was it was not a very well designed system and it's not well illustrated to players how to use the multiple versions.
Are Dead Branches going to turn back to normal this week?
Not yet, this is still being evaluated.
when can we expect the directx 9 update?
We have asked kRO HQ about this, but do not have updates on when we might be able to receive this.
how can the community help advertise this game best? ive tried on my own FB but as a 35 yr old long time player what i enjoy and what my FB peeps enjoy game wise dont always match up... are there any other ways youd guys would suggest us to spread the joy of iRO to the masses? you know the majority of the community want to help!
Videos, livestreaming and participating in the Steam and other gaming communities really does help. We get a bump in registrations when we do our live shows.
1. Can we request & concentrate on getting the scripts implemented for gear fixes? Not just the fix for the Owl & a skill fix for one class?
2. Skill Balance for Thief/Rogue Class. (This is for Oda ONLY) I do NOT need feedback on this.
Skill balance on Renewal is 98% controlled by kRO in terms of how the skill and characters work. If a skill simply does not work that we can report to them.
3. Is anything being done, or going to be done, to add an additional digit to the vend, and/or deal amount, in order to increase them, along with increasing the zeny limit per character. If so when?
We do not have an estimated time for the update to the trade/vend transaction limits.
4. Can we get additional space added to the friends list?
That is also controlled by kRO.
Also Can there be an update to the nospam config to also block pm spams from gold bots?? Since they have 1 bot that take down names now they will always spam you with its other bots if you reject whispering of the one that spammed you first x_x
Our Community Devs are taking a look at expanding nospam to do something along these lines
Did kRO ever get back to your team yet about the Battlegrounds queuing system with any kind of reply?
No new information on that yet.
How long Gravity plans to advertise iRO online ? i mean it seems the population boom we're having recently is mostly result of steam ads(or you call it collabration? i really don't know how steam works,so can't choose the best word here), and honestly i loved it. Just want to hear from an official mouth how big of a growth is planned for iRO.Will we ever see so mentioned crowded old days of the server,like 10k of people at a non woe day? /slur
Advertising is a tough thing, especially with a game that is 10 years old. Steam has been very good for getting our name out there and we have other projects we are working on to get RO in the spotlight. I do not know if we'd be able to get up to 10,000 people but we'd certainly like to make some population increases on Classic and Renewal.
Also can Oda get drunk and stream?
I don't drink to drunkenness really, don't care for the feeling. Also, HR certainly wouldn't want me imbibing on company time and I think it would diminish the quality of the broadcast.
Now would new players coming in and not knowing the game that well to create stats right. Can the mesmerizer be brought back?
For Renewal this is something we can look at.
