The Open Cave MOUL Shard 2.16 is Live

Just a few weeks after the Guild of Writers released their own update to Gehn Shard, The Open Cave has followed suit and released version 2.16 of their MOUL shard!  Various fixes and additions include:

  • New Guild of Messengers Pub by Doobes
  • Walkable exteriors in Pod Ages
  • Repeat recent chat lines with up/down keys
  • KI text shadows and proper chat fading
  • Coop-Anim demo /attack is now /threaten
  • /startdance is now /dance
  • A lot of further bug fixes and improvements

Some known glitches to fix:

  • /swim, /crawl, /aeroplane are broken. I intend to fix them in the future.
  • You can fall through the water in Negilahn, so be careful.

Also, a couple of notes from the TOC team:

Due to real life issues, we could not implement MysBibi's reward for winning the picture contest yet. We will deliver it as soon as possible, though.

Also, please note that this is the first update after April 8. That means (as we announced in January) support for Windows XP has been dropped.

To get the new update, simply run your TOC MOUL client as normal and let it download.  If you'd like to try either of their shards, MOUL or PotS versions, visit their site and click on "How to Play" under the appropriate menu.

Excellent work!

Mysterium 2014 Registration & Event Submissions Closing Soon

It’s officially summer, and Mysterium is fast approaching! The committee has a couple of timely reminders:
 
Registration and T-Shirts
 
First, the last day for online registration and t-shirt pre-orders is July 4th. That’s only two weeks away! If you plan to attend, please register online so that they can get an accurate estimate of attendance numbers. If you plan on buying a Mysterium t-shirt, they strongly encourage you to do so either by pre-ordering one to pick up at the convention, or by using their Square Market store to buy one that can be shipped to you. Ordering for shirts through their Square store will also close after July 4th, so get orders in now!
 
Events Needed!
 
Second, the deadline for event submissions is June 30th. If you’ll be at Mysterium and you have an idea for a panel discussion, presentation, display, or activity that you’re interested in running, please let them know! Head over to the Events page at their site and be sure to read the event guidelines, then fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
 
We’re so excited about this year’s Mysterium, and we can’t wait to see you all in Spokane. Shorah b’shemtee!

All Guilds Meeting - June 2014

We're into summer now, but that's not slowing down activity in the cavern and beyond!  This month's All Guilds Meeting had its share of news, which we've recorded in our usual raw and cleansed chatlogs...as well as the accompanying summary!

Here's the latest:

Heritage Night

Jamie Marchant started things off with news of the next Heritage Night.  HN VI will take place on Saturday, June 28th at 13:00 KI Time in the Heritage Night's hood.  The topic of discussion will be memorable threads/discussions from the MOUL forums from the Gametap and current eras.  He will also discuss an upcoming production of a live play in-game detailing various events from Gametap's MOUL (circa 2007) and will be looking for various actors to fill roles in a script he is writing.

Gehn.20 Has Been Released

After working behind the scenes during a live Google Hangout, the Guild of Writers has released version 20 of Gehn Shard!  This update has quite a few nice fixes and additions, including:

  • Add chat history browsing.
  • Add text shadows to the KI.
  • Buff the floors in Vothol Gallery.
  • Fix chat fade bug.
  • Fix crash related to other players uploading things to imagers.
  • Fix floating kickables/slave cave problems.
  • Fix missing Relto books.
  • Fix moar memory leaks.
  • Fix player deletion nuking client sessions.
  • Fix potential server crash when receiving bad data from clients.
  • Fix problem with sending KI mail containing naughty words to imagers.
  • Update the Nexus software to present a book to a new Guild of Messenger's Pub.
  • Splat transforms.

For those that already have the shard installed, simply run the game as normal and let it download and update.

If you haven't installed Gehn and would like to do so, you can find out how at this link.

To visit the new Guild of Messengers' Pub, simply grab a GoMe shirt in Kirel.  There will be a link in your Nexus.  Note that this method works because the new Pub replaces the old one.

Congratulations to the Guild for another fantastic release!

Gehn 20 Google Hangout Tonight!

The Guild of Writers is set to deploy its latest version of Gehn Shard, and like the last release, they will be having a Google Hangout so that interested explorers can listen in on the process.

They plan to start at 21:00 KI Time tonight (June 6th).  Joining them will be Doobes, whose restored Messengers' Pub will be a part of this update.
