INN Revival: Yserbius News

Today is an important day for the ImagiNation Revival project. Finally, after many long months of work, all of the original INN "lands" are represented within the Revival server.

As of a few moments ago, the initial testing of Yserbius functionality was completed. If you connect to the ImagiNation Revival server, you will now have the option to enter the Sword Swamp, from which you can enter the tavern or the volcano itself.

Details on getting connected can be found at the ImagiNation Revival website.

P.S.: Please keep in mind that Yserbius (and most other features of the server) are very much works in progress. There will be problems, and something you do will inevitably crash the server.

It's been a great couple of days. At one point today there were 6 unique users logged on and running around the 'cano. It doesn't sound like much, but 6 is actually the most people that have been online at once.

As I'm writing this there are 4 people in the 'cano. Two people have gotten Cleowyn's key tonight and a third is getting close.

My friend Sean and I were playing and I have to say it was amazing.

A long time ago I played Yserbius, but due to no local preferred numbers and such I was no longer able to play. Then a day came when I stumbled on the standalone game for Yserbius and Twinion in an electronics/software/book store called Media Play.

I came home and installed it and in my underage hey friend check this game out ways, I went to Sean's house and installed it on his PC, telling him of the days when many people played the game online.

We longed, and I mean longed, for the day we could play the game online. We were never computer programmers, although we both work for software companies now, but we thought there had to be a way.

A week ago we started playing Ruins of Cawdor as neither of us had played that. Sitting right next to each other playing the same game. Then yesterday we actually played Yserbius, partied and even got Cleowyn's key. Despite the fact that I died about 15 million times on the way there...Its a tough life for a wizard let me tell you..

All in all, awesome simply awesome.

10 years we thought about it, not a lot, but we did.. and here we are.

Rock :D

Wow I played in Yserbius back in the early 90's. My brother in law just told me yesterday about INNrevival. He and my sister meet online at INN back when they were both teenagers. Good time! I now have a level 11 barb names Need. If I can only remember how to do the quests.

I gave it a quick shot.. it was "dialing" though and could never connect. Apparently it still thinks I have a modem....or even a phone line for that matter.

I followed the instructions as listed on the website's Getting Online section and it worked perfectly, was in game within seconds and playing in the dungeon again.

playing yserbius online is still so much fun

Thanks guys, i've had alot of fun playing it so far. It still crashes every 15-45 minutes though, if i could get it down to 1hr-2hrs it would be awsome. I have been trying to get it working on my sisters laptop but the modem doesnt seem to work. When installing it on my dads computer(dragging folders into my network places) it worked fine and we got to lvl10 together. We even grouped with another person, and died by those dang goblins with green chin puss! Private message me if there is anything i can do to help.

I was doing really well soloing until lv11 or so. After that everytime I tried to go deeper, I get killed by a group of Ghosts or Banshees. Magic hurts and my AGI is low. :mad:

Need, stay in the tav... it's safer... and it's an open bar til Shoey or someone starts running the joint :p

Matthew and I joined up to cleanse the 'cano. Seemed when I lead I'd get the boot during every battle... kept getting a maintainence error :mad:

If you encounter empty bottles and kegs layin in the 'cano... there Matthews! That's my story I'm stick'n with it ~/

I had that issue, i turned my firewall off and it worked. I also went into the linksys router and made sure that port was enabled to my computer. for TCP.

Tassox: When you say that it is crashing often, are you talking about the Maintenance Error message that Navic mentioned?

The maintenance error is a well known issue. It also appears in the other Lands as INN errors 1 and 2. I added some code last week that seemed to greatly reduce the number of crashes people were having from that error. I've got some ideas that may reduce the problems further but I haven't had time to implement them yet.

I haven't tried it myself, but some people have told me that clicking on the "Posts" button in the Tavern sometimes causes INN to crash. The message board hasn't been implemented yet anyway, so don't click that button!

inn maintenence error ( #3 on mine usually )

yah byoung thats the one, it seems to happen more often when grouped with someone. Playing today june11th 2007 monday, it seems alot smoother and crashing less often. I played a good 4 hrs already and it onlly crashed once, and yah its nice to know that im not supposed to click that button lol. Before i played online i downloaded the singleplayer and it seemed alot smoother as far as movement and when several monsters flee it didnt pause for each line of text, wanted to let you know about that too (=.

thanks for that tip slohand ill try the linksys thing, forgot all about that.
is there any eta on the other two awsome mmo's, twinion and .. ?
