Report Morder Pre-Purchase Packages Announced in General Discussion Posted August 16, 2017 18 hours ago, Almagnus1 said: I don't think there's enough players left that care enough about LotRO to do that. Now for sure not. Imo last chance was in 2011, MAYBE in 2012. 18 hours ago, Almagnus1 said: How possible would it be to use a Lua program to dump the quests and items to disk? That would DEFINITELY help cut out a lot of the reconstruction work. No idea. Emulators are not my area of expertise - I only know about them what I've read, but I never met or heard about an emulator that would get official quest scripting. Those scripts/code is on official server and is not sent to client AFAIK, so emulator developers have to write quest scripting themself. Whatever they get from packets send by official server to client does NOT contain quest scripting (or at least they get only some bits) afaik. I might be wrong - like I've said I never done any emulator work, but that is what I've read. 18 hours ago, Almagnus1 said: IMO there's not really been a western MMO failure in the last couple of years worth saving. Only time will tell, as most of the F2P MMOs are probably not going to be around in 5-10 years. MMORPGs definately failed, they hit a wall in their developement as a genre, unable to keep up with players expectations. As far as I am concerned by years long of MMORPGs hiatus have NOT lowered my expectations, opposite in fact. If I am ever to pour hundreads of hours into an MMOPRG - they would have to PROVIDE huge amount of quality. For sure I don't want play those god awful boring and cheap grind-gameplay anymore. So currently even Lotro from it's golden age with updated graphics would not convinced me to play. It would have to be much better than Lotro (or any other MMORPG to date in fact) ever was.
