No AI, no campaign, no music prevent this project from becoming great anytime soon.
Their engine seems quite capable, it's no memory hog, the rendering is faithful and snappy.
But it doesn't offer you to play The Succession Wars or Price of Liberty. In fact it's basically restricted to multiplayer for the time being and the foreseeable future.
It doesn't mean you can't have fun with it, only that you're deprived from any and all solo fun you might have had.
To make things worse, trying it will spam you with a popup in combat saying "I removed the AI code. Because there are scammers who use this free project in their commercial purposes. For all the official binary releases will present my original version of AI. So are you able to make their version of AI" (sic)... WTFLOL?
Keep away from this one if you can find HOMMIII.
yeah, I think we should wait for a stable release before we include this, but's definitely a game to watch.
Tried it (although I have 32bit) - switched to my system-wide JVM and changed that line 378.
3 times out of ~15 tries it run successfully (no segfaults, the game just freezes at startup sometimes [most times]).
I get this thing now running, but it isn't fully translated yet.
Here my little howto for 64 bit:
wget -c http://download.dofus-arena.com/full/linux/ -O $HOME/dofusarena.sh
update but don't start it, download and extract a 32bit JavaVM(ia32 from apt won't work)
edit the start script and override your javavm(line 4), change line 378 to:
"$app_java_home/bin/java" -client "-Xmx512M" "-XX:+ForceTimeHighResolution" "-XX:MinHeapFreeRatio=10" "-XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=20" "-XX:+CMSIncrementalMode" "-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC" "-XX:+UseParNewGC" "-Dsun.awt.noerasebackground=true" "-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true" "$vmov_1" "$vmov_2" "$vmov_3" "$vmov_4" "$vmov_5" $INSTALL4J_ADD_VM_PARAMS -classpath "$local_classpath" com.install4j.runtime.Launcher launch com.ankamagames.dofusarena.client.DofusArenaClient true false "$prg_dir/error.log" "" true true false "Splash.png" true true 350 200 "" 20 20 "Arial" "0,0,0" 8 500 "version 2" 20 40 "Arial" "0,0,0" 8 500 -1 "$@"
save and try it again
btw: here is my start script
It hardly qualifies as a game, of course, being just what's advertised: a visual novel.
Yet it features one of the most breathtaking stories in the genre, supported by nicely drawn - albeit slightly repetitive - artworks.
The soundtrack is spot on, and the various translations included (in the Narcissu -2nd- version at least) ensure you'll find something that fits your need: either terse and close in spirit or more literate and slightly away from the original.
What's not to like about this unless you don't like to read? Not much really.
A beautiful, moving, slightly depressing must-read. :)
