    Quite an ambitious project, I'll give you that. As someone who understands jack **** from this stuff I can only wish you the best of luck and I hope you don't lose interest in it as it's most definitely gonna reel in attention once it's publicly available. Cheers!

    Thanks for all the encouraging feedback, it really helps us stay motivated.

    This is way awesome.

    I have some questions!

    Will there be a scripting system to make more complex/detailed skills/interactions/quests/UI/etc?

    What platform does the server run on?

    What kind of database is being used?

    Thanks!

    Scripting = Yes (No details yet)
    Platform = Windows
    Database = MSSQL

    I haven't even played this game but I respect what you guys are doing big time. I've been waiting for something similar for a game called Dungeon Runners but it isn't happening. This game looks amazing and I think the MMO project will make it even better. Let me know if you ever need a server to host anything on
  • I seriously hope these efforts are ongoing!

    Do these guys have a MOD DB section? Also do they have like a donation page? I'd be down to donate if these guys are for real to make this happen.

    Kickstarter might be a good idea for them :)

    I'm not so sure about that, Phanjam. At the end of the day Torchlight is copyright Runic. Involving money would introduce serious legality concerns.

    Hey,

    First of all we are still working on this project as goblins in a cave, there has been a delay with updates due to holidays and a lot of work on our IRL works. We will keep you guys updated as much as possible.

    There is no page yet, we'll probably create one later on for bug reporting and suggestions. :)

    We wish that fundraising was possible to buy loose some time and accelerate the progress of this project. Sadly we do not think that runic approve such a thing.


    Do not disappoint me when we meet in battle.

    This is a wonderful update (even if it has almost no details LOL) just knowing you're still working on this is really exciting!

    Thanks Gomer and team!

    Hey guys, after a long wait it is time for the first open alpha testing for this project. The goal is to test the network infrastructure on the client & server side to make sure the core-base is working fine before adding tons of features, we plan to have an open alpha soon and hope someone are willing to test it out and give us feedback. We will also have a road-map that you can follow while we implementing the features during the way.

    Questions?
    • What the **** you mean by soon?
      - It may take up to 2-4 weeks before the website is finished and our dedicated server are in place.
    • What will be existing on the alpha?
      - As we said, we want to test our network infrastructure, so registration, login, create a customized player, chatting and run around in a town.
    • Is there something more made?
      - Yes, we have more implemented already like inventory, item management and interaction with NPCs but will be activated when it's time to test it out.
    • Why does everything take so long?
      - We are only two guys that are working on this in our free time, and there are periods we are gone with our IRL jobs.

    Looking forward to taking a **** group photo with you guys in Estherian Enclave!

    More information about how to register and download the client as we approach the launch!

    Cheers!

    Woohoo! This is really exciting news :) i would be happy to help test. Do we need to DL a whole new game client, or will this reuse some of the Runic client? How do i sign up?

    You will need to download the entire game (~15mb), it's around ~200MB with current torchlight assets available in alpha. We will explain how you proceed when we release.

    Ok, this is a pleasant surprise. Good luck with the project, you will really need it for something big like this.

    Made some stress-testing at the weekend, simulated players with its own connection moving around random, looked pretty crowded with 1,500 players in the same city heh.

    Everything went relatively well, some improvements are being worked on from the local tests, now we are preparing to run tests over the network for more real-time observations with network delays / interpolating sync for a few days.
