Re: Gamespy services shutdown June 30th

There is no need to reinvent the wheel. The guys behind Qtracker (server browser application) already have their own emulated GameSpy servers up. Just open your Drakan.cfg file, find MasterServerList line and make it look like this: set MasterServerList "gsm.qtracker.com:27900" And that's all there ...

Re: AiO patch vs 10th anniversary

10th Anniversary Mod installer will overwrite Drakan.exe and Dragon.rfl files with older, buggier ones, which means after its installation, you must apply AiO Patch to benefit from all known bug fixes.

Re: Running a game server?

435? Isn't that the very first version of Drakan? No idea why would you want to run it unless you like bugs. :P

Re: How to Run Drakan on my New PC

If all else fails, you can download Universal Extractor and use it to extract file data1.cab, which is located in Setup folder on Drakan CD. Then, download 445 Patch from here , unzip it, and use Universal Extractor to extract data1.cab, but don't extract it to the same folder as you did with CD's d...

Re: Drakan combat

Combat mechanics are pretty simple, but as AXE said, combo moves do spice 'em up. They also cause greater damage to the enemies.

Re: Drakan multiplayer servers

Try this: @echo off :Start Drakan.exe -dedicated -levellist "whatever" goto Start Also, you need to open Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting and set DontShowUI value to 1. This will surpress the crash dialog which will alllow t...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Whoops, I accidently crashed AXE's server. Apparently there is a glitch that happens if you get stuck outside the map and breathe fire at the same time into the "void", actually into the sky outside the map which crashes the server. Happened on the map The Deadly Grove. Looks like it only happens if...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Glad to hear it works!

Oh, I forgot to mention, the first version number represents version of the game engine (Drakan.exe), the second is the version of Dragon.rfl, where game logic is implemented. Seems logical to increase it when you modify something in one of those files.

Probably the final update

That's odd, I haven't had such problems when I tested it on my home LAN. I just put together the 4th and final version of AiO Patch. It works around dragon skin selection reset problem. It doesn't reset anymore in most cases except if you're kicked from the server for bad files. Can you give it a sp...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

You should go with the second option unless you want to mess around with special effects 10th Ann. Mod brings. With the mod, you'll also have to disable standard bump mapping effect that comes with the game since the mod doesn't handle it properly and will result in graphical glitches. Rendering spe...

Re: Drakan stalls on loading screen

Well, your problem are obviously missing game files. The only mystery that remains unsolved is why they aren't installing. If installation from your CD also fails on some other computer, then there must be something wrong with the CD itself. If not, then I really don't know what else to suggest besi...

Just another update

Here's another update , bringing some small enhancements and bugfixes: Further tweaked widescreen code; finally those hacky checks that are meant to prevent adjusting FOV value when we are in menus seem to work correctly under all circumstances. "Session creation failed!" error should no longer occu...

Re: Drakan stalls on loading screen

I really can't think of any other logical reason besides some of the files being corrupted or missing. Could be faulty CD, faulty optical drive,... But just to be sure, I'm attaching a file which you can use to check the integrity of your game files: Make sure Drakan is freshly installed and patched...
