    BTW if you want to level fast running missions for loot/exp is the way to go. Dunno if youve noticed but quests give negligible exp, like killing a few monsters, and in a mission you'll kill like 70+ monsters a level in a few minutes because of the way the game plays

    though this may change, the exp rate from monsters seems damned high to me atm

    The experience curve is artificially inflated for the PBT, apparently. Monsters are intentionally giving more than quests or something like that.

    Whatever the exact changes are, it's not what release is supposed to be. But I wouldn't be surprised if monster farming is better to level, since destroying mass amounts of creatures is kinda the point of the game! It's satisfying.

    If you're running Vista/Windows 7, set it to Windows XP compatibility mode and run it as administrator.

    Tada.

    Xpadder is sending keys to all other programs/notepad/etc.?

    If you got the gamepad working in Windows 7 and xpadder is using it, the above should be enough. I assume Dragonica is also running itself as administrator?

    edit: oh, and shutdown both programs and start xpadder then Dragonica, if you run xpadder the first time with Dragonica open then it doesn't seem to work period (this is what happened to me at first until I found out I had to quit the game and deal with the login again)

    Xpadder works in notepad fine. Both programs are running as administrator and xpadder in compat mode. I'll try starting up xpad first.

    While playing this windowed has its charm, I'd like to you know, make use of my 1680x1050 resolution to get rid of all the interface clutter in the teeny-tiny 1024x768 window.

    Oh, and add a queue system. Seriously, are we still stuck in the late 90s here?

    Bitching aside, I liked what I played. Played a Warrior to lvl 4, I think. I'll make a Magician or Archer after I manage to log back in.

    Running windowed and detaching the chat window (click the box icon on the right side of the chat buttons) gives it a widescreen worth of windows. I run 1680x1050 as well and it suffices. Not having to alt-tab means I don't get disconnected as easily which is super important the way the game is right now.

    With the detached window, it's a little cumbersome because you can't set a default channel afaik, so you have to type /f or /g to send to friends/guild each time, but it does split up your system/loot messages from all the chat ones making it easier to keep up with the PA chatter, and this frees up some space on the game window.

    Hm, first translating error so far:

    Heh. I suspected people might not have gotten that far when they said there was no Engrish. Some of the other quests in that area are a bit dodgy with the translation as well (though none of the others have been that bad).

    This game is most definitely good times though.

    I'm on as Alanna the warrior.

    The game is pretty fun so far but I had to rebind keys to an WASD layout so I wouldn't go insane >.>

    Does anyone know how the market system works? I can't seem to get it to work.

    Protip: if your gamepad stops working suddenly, see if you pressed "enter" and are in chat mode. :lol:

    Happens to me now and then.

    Alright, guild is up!

    Name is Arcadians (name limit of 10 characters???) and our emblem is a rhino.

    Message Infidel or Adda for an invite at the moment.

    edit: still taking gold donations, not only did I spend almost all my gold to make up the missing bits for guild founding, but we also need another 10 gold to purchase the level 1 guild skill! D:

    From the videos this game is giving off a RBO kind of vibe, I may try it out once the installer downloads. Can't decide between Magician>Acolyte or Warrior or Thief... Damn!

    One big thing you guys should understand is this is... well it's not an open beta, supposed to be a 'Preview Beta'. Come June 4th-June 10th the other two companies hosting the game for english users will start their Open Beta Tests.

    And to CripTonic: You can only access the Market while in the town.

    Man... trying to get anything over a C score wise for the mission maps as a Warrior after Vagabond seems fucking impossible. I've kind of figured out that you should be jumping up and down to since the boss can only attack left or right, but the fact that my space key likes to not respond sometimes makes that suck. I'm going to be getting Red Faction: Guerrilla today and I'm tempted to pick up the Wireless Receiver for the 360 controller.
