Re: Slow forum and spam posts

Update - majority of spam was coming from spoofed IP addresses but I managed to find out their real addresses and it was from 3 addresses in Russia and one in Israel. They have been blocked in the .htaccess file so can't even access the site.

This should stop it (for now)

Slow forum and spam posts

I'm sure a lot of you know the site can be slow sometimes and some page elements do not load. The site is being hammered by spambots; there's thousands per day hitting the registration page and also trying to post as a guest. 99% get stopped by the anti spam system but a few do get through every now...

Re: Uncommon Drakan Stuff

I believe she was a relative of one of the staff who worked at Psygnosis but I could be wrong. She never became a professional modeller so that's why there is no information on her. The Surreal staff wouldn't know as the publisher (Psygnosis / Sony) did all of the marketing and promoting of the game.

Re: Drakan Gold Pack

Nice. Mechanist, Ucyborg and Yangez93 put a lot of work into the community to make Drakan MP work again and organise the community. Interest seems to be lacking again but it was nice to play the game again on modern computers.

Re: Arok refuses to fly

Hi do you have the USA version of the game or the EU / Australian version as the USA version has a known bug with that area believed to be caused by dismounting Arokh too near the cave exit and the invisible ceiling prevents him from flying. It should let you mount him, walk forward and then fly tho...

Re: Improving Drakan performance, compatibility and audio

I've looked into it, if you have a creative labs sound card Alchemy will work fine however for other sound chips including onboard audio there has to be a 'hack' done to make it work. I've downloaded that file which is now a dead link in the past but I'm unable to find it. I must have deleted it. Th...

Re: New levels by YanGez93

I've been keeping an eye on this, looks great and reminds me of Drakan:TAG. Do you want me to put the download on this website as well?

Re: Landscape Concept Art

The PS2 could display higher polygon count models compared to the average PC at the time but the PS2's VRAM is very limited hence the crappy textures. I don't know why they made Arokh orange. I do remember someone from Surreal, may have been Duncan or Stuart Denman telling me they wanted him to look...

Re: Landscape Concept Art

Yeah it is the city of Aachen - they had to change the name to Surdana as there is already a city called Aachen in Germany. Also they are from the PC version of the game which allowed for a larger landscape and cities. It had to be reduced and cut down to fit into the PS2's RAM along with a new rele...

Re: Rynn Concept Art

The last three look like the screenshots from the PC version of Drakan:TAG when it was known as Drakan2. It was still using the same game engine as OOTF then. Got cancelled and made PS2 exclusive not long after those early screenshots were released.

Re: Limited Comic U poster order of Flame

Is that the drakan comic? There was one but in German only but don't know if anyone has a scan of it. If you mean the Drakan poster there are several versions on the front page of the site.

Re: About Aergoth Singleplayer Maps

Hi Franz, welcome to the forum. Aergoth is unfinished - only the first map and part of the second has been completed. Unfortunately the guy who made it never got the time to finish it. I think that gate is as far as you can go. There's two more great level series - The Breaking of the World & Azener...
