All Guilds Meeting - November 2013

Winter is coming...and so has another All Guilds Meeting!

This one went rather smoothly and was kept under an hour and a half.  As usual, we have raw and cleansed chatlogs to read at your leisure.

Here's a summary of what you missed:

Obduction

Doobes led the meeting off by talking about Cyan's latest project...Obduction!  As was reported on this site earlier, Cyan Worlds is using Kickstarter to fund the game, so be sure to stop by and donate what you can, and hopefully, we'll get to see new worlds made by the creators of  Myst  and Riven!

Obduction: Cyan's New Kickstarter-Funded Game

During the past few months, there has been much speculation surrounding Cyan's secret new project; the speculation and excitement rose dramatically over the past few weeks, as Cyan dropped various teasers about its upcoming new game. The wait is now over, as Cyan has formally announced its latest project: Obduction, a first-person adventure in the spirit of Myst and Riven and financed through Kickstarter, with an ambitious $1,100,000 goal.

Cyan working on a new game property

At Cyan's new forums, discussion in a topic titled Looking Forward to that Kickstarter ;) turned into a puzzle hunt when Ryan Warzecha ("greydragon") dropped the following teaser:

Where is everyone? Where is the wild speculation? The pages of discussion? Has everything moved to tumblr? I mean when someone leaks an image, you kind of hope for people to look at it. 
 
What happened?
 
Discussion turned to an image posted to Cyan's Facebook page by Cyan employee Eric A. Anderson ("edoublea").  After Eric and Ryan dropped a few clues, Ryan challenged fans:
No more hints... Let the game begin!
 
Since then, Cyantists have posted additional pictures and clues, in which forum puzzle participants have identified hidden messages including the slogan, "Prepare To Be Scattered..."

MO:ULa reaches CAVCON 1

The CAVCON meter, which measures the donation level for MO:ULa, has dipped below 2 for the first time since its inception way back in February of 2010: as of the 8th of July 2013, the meter is currently at CAVCON 1.2. This means that the reserve fund built up during the early CAVCON 4 months is now completely empty. In other words, if there aren't enough donations by the end of the month to cover operating costs, MO:ULa will not be able to pay for the month.

This does not necessarily mean it would go down immediately, as Cyan now rents MO:ULa on a yearly basis. However, if the situation continues over the following months, MO:ULa will go down, perhaps permanently. The others shards could keep operating, but unless a redistribution license is provided by Cyan to the various shard operators, new explorers wouldn't be able to play the game because there would be no way to get the game files through legal means.

Here's hoping that the upcoming D'nipalooza and CAVECON events manage to raise enough funds to cover the remaining 80% of costs.

If you have something to throw Cyan's way to keep MOULa running, head over to the donation page.  Let's keep the game and the community running!

Myst Online: URU Live Again - Build 918 is Live!

It's been awhile since the last major update, but Cyan Worlds and hardworking fans have done it again.  A new build, 918, has been released for the masses to enjoy...with a ton of nice under-the-hood fixes!

Here's some of those bugs that have been conveniently squashed (as quoted from Chogon):

- Allow clickables while sitting or AFK
- Fixed various JPEG issues (see special note below)
- Free the cursor
- Fixed improper calculated initial window size
- Improved cursor
- Removed broken share from Sharper's Office link
- Fixed GreatZero stain glass to be random
- Avatar physics overhaul (affecting leaves in Kadish, rocks in Teledahn and much much more)
- Fixed pellet point stealing
- Fixed some security risks (ask a low-level NSA contractor for details)
- Bink removed!!! (The Cyan logo and the Yeesha intro movie will no longer play)

To download, simply start up your current MOULa client and let it download the new one.

NOTE: this fix will also "break" the images of your avatars that display on the login screen.  To fix them, head over here to download a program that will do just that (there's versions for both Windows and Mac). Read more
