January just flew by didn't it? Aloha folks and welcome to February! We have some fun stuff coming up this month, we should be getting data for the Hero's Trail Part II  around the 10th and our Classic 2015 plans are well underway. Ask your Doctor Who, Star Wars, Harry Potter and Leprechaun related questions here!

 

For this week's biography, we're putting a spotlight on Warwick Davis! Born on this day in 1970, he has appeared in major and minor roles in the Star Wars series, Willow, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy and starred as the eponymous Leprechaun. He's an utterly charming actor who brings a lot of fun to the rolls he's portrayed. You can watch for him to appear in this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens

 

"celebrate the yub!"

Warwick davis is pretty awesome :) everything from willow to harry potter. His role of wickett in star wars doesn't really showcase him, since he's in a suit and speaking gibberish.

Happy to see erfoes trails part 2 coming. Some good items on the way.

I like to pretend ewoks never happened, along with eps 1-3

 

Ewoks themselves are fine, they are basically the most explicit metaphor of the "little guy" winning against the big bad guy in this larger galactic conflict and Yub Nub is a great song to close out a movie with.

Repost from previous:

 

Requesting to fix to warlock chain lightning bug:

 

Warlock chain lightning: you should be able to move around after casting the spell (as in KRO videos)

But in IRO, you can't move after casting. If you try to move your char moves on the screen but gets position bugged (in reality its still in the same place).

Its very inconvenient as you cant place safety walls in the right place, and sometimes you cant even move properly, making the skill less usable.

 

We can ask kRO for an update, if you know of a specific data when kRO made this change we can ask for it.

Can we get the stacker NPC on Classic fixed? He's not stacking Battle Manual X3s. I've got 14 in my inventory from lucky boxes and they're all singles.

 

It's on our list to put in this week.

Will you guys ever have Gramps fixed? There is a bug when either your base or job level reaches 150 or 50.

 

Normally, you are able to redistribute EXP when you're on VIP, either all into base or job. I understand that if one of those levels reach max (150 or 50), then you will no longer be able to redistribute. This shouldn't stop the EXP from the maxed level from going to the un-maxed level, right?

 

For example, when I get to 125/50, I will have a harder time getting to base level 150 on VIP because what I could've redistributed to my base level will just be lost. VIP will no longer make any sense then if my base level reaches 150 or if my job level reaches 50. It'll be like I'm not on VIP.

Take the owl dukes out CT 2 and put back the clocks

Put the Owl Dukes here also add in Owl Baron back in Ct 4, if the map is too dense remove some of the alarms and clocks.

Last week's change of Owl Dukes to Clocks has been reverted. 
 
 
Reverted right?!...         I think not.

I'll mYou made a mistake, so will you fix it?  -_-

Read this in this thread:
 

Some things, like adding new monsters or headgears are not possible to do on Classic, and we do not have the modern UI improvements there like the Cash Shop Button, Quest tracker or navigation system that Renewal does but we are able to add maps, new weapons, armor and accessories and quests.

This is disappointing. Couldn't kRO give you guys a modded Renewal server running the pre-Renewal math and stuff, or is this just not possible? It would certainly make supporting Classic easier (new hats, new monsters, etc.), and would better enable the Renewal-to-Classic transfer you're thinking of doing.

One reason for us working hard on classic and having population growth events is that if we can show kRO that Classic has a good population and demand we will have a much better case to make to HQ that Classic deserves actual development updates.

Oda, you mentioned in January that you pushed to Kro request concerning new headgears and accesories. Anything new? There were a lot of suggestions, I wonder if any of them make their way to Iro

 

No updates on that yet, but we can double check to make sure they've gotten it.

This is good to hear, but I have an honest question: do you guys and/or kRO not pay attention to private servers? I ask because there's two big low-rates running pre-renewal/classic gameplay atm, each with over 1200 players online as of this writing. That seems like the kind of thing that you guys should take notice of, because it's indicative that there's a demand there that's currently being filled by outside sources. I would hope Gravity and WarpPortal keep them in mind when assessing whether the demand is there or not, because I feel like these could easily be iRO Classic players under the right circumstances, but a lot of that rests on kRO's ability to provide support.

 

In my monthly reports I do talk about how lack of development support and the popularity of pservers and why they are so as reasons why Classic and iRO in general need more updates from the devs.

Someone should mess with those p-servers and set up spam bots for iRO. That'd be hilarious.

 

I mean they'd obviously go out of their way to ban them but no system is foolproof I'm sure someone could come up with a good way to do it.

Could we get a weapon/armor repair NPC in Eden? Or the Mail Annex? I feel like there was one there at one point.... Just a simple thing that helps out lazy people like me...

 

Asked about it and the producers aren't crazy about the idea because it would increase crowding on those maps.

Can we have, like, ALL of these things?

 

Also look at their Valentines event page. We don't even have an event planned yet and they already have an ultra pro-looking page up!

 

Eventually!

Hey Oda, I wanted to ask about using pets in instance dungeons.

When I enter an instance, my pet disappears. It happened in the bio4 instance as well as the old GH instance.

It seems other people are having the same thing happen.

I haven't tried using my pet since.

 

Is this working as intended or is it a bug?

I haven't seen any official iRO statement about it.

 

I won't be able to make it on time for the Tiki Tuesday stream, I won't be able to see the response unless you post it here.

Thank you.

 

We'll do some testing on it, we have no official documentation from kRO about any changes to the way instances are made but I would recommend against bringing a pet into an instance for the time being. 

Thank you for the reply.

 

EDIT @ 2/4/2015

 

I did some more testing.

When you are doing the Juperos dungeon quest with a pet out, it works fine, until you go into the portal with the fixed screen (Where you enter the first crest piece.) Every single time I got to that screen with a pet out, my character would freeze. When I got there with no pet, I didn't have any issues.
