    Exclamation Legacy of the Zodiac EX (2D MMORPG)


    Hey, this is Scythe the owner of LoZ EX. This thread is here to introduce you all to my MMORPG also so I can get feedback on what I have done with it so far.

    LoZ EX is short for Legacy of the Zodiac EX. Our host is DarkDragoon who has the server up 24/7 unless something happens like the power goes out, he's running on a Windows XP with a recently upgraded to 1 gig of RAM (he had 256 MBs before @_@). LoZ EX is made with the X-Realms engine which is made using Mirage Source 0.0.1 but most of the original MS code has been altered. We have 700+ Awesome Maps. We have a great community, usually have 20+ people on. Usually no less than 15. This version of LoZ, LoZ EX has been around since February 2006 and is still growing and getting better day by day. If you download it and try it I'm sure you will become addicted to it. LoZ EX is a 2D MMORPG where you can do many different things, embark on a quest, duel another player, join a guild/clan, be in a clan war, maybe even a castle siege .

    This is the staff list of LoZ EX which I will update when needed.

    Pretty sweet, but isn't this for game help and not game advertisement?

    It's a good job though. Better than what I've made, but I don't really like drag and drop game creation.

    Use XXX in a comment to flag something that is bogus but works. Use FIXME to flag something that is bogus and broken. Use TODO to leave yourself reminders. Calling a program finished before all these points are checked off is lazy.

    I agree, it is (this forum) for game development and not advertisment or feedback, but if it makes people aware of x-realms. cool.

    I was wondering about it and thinking what I should do with this post, for now I thought I'd leave it and see what others think. PM me if you want.

    Exclamation


    Ah sorry if I put it in the wrong section, since it was game development I thought I could discuss it in here. Oh we've been working on this since February 2006.
