Old school LC

Good Afternoon all, :)

Hope this post finds the devs. As a returning player I’ve noticed a lot of has changed since 2009 (obviously); though I am enjoying the game as it is right now my only suggestion would be possibly creating a server similar to old lc where max could be +15; highest level 90 or so. I believe it’ll attract the old players to start playing again. Hopefully I can get some traffic on this post and push further. Thanks for reading.

I think that was the purpose of the Horizon server, where they removed elephants etc. However I believe Horizon is a very quiet place :)

retro lc

the wizards support the idea of creating an old school server . however it would be extremely difficult to implement properly as all of our ideas are different .
example , I don't want nightshadows or any x chars or any p2s except itchi and scratchi , i don't want a jewel system nor do i want an affinity system .
you must understand the game is semi pet based now ,make a server with no or limited p2s and it will fail .

*Content removed by admin, please see private message*


make a retro version of the game and the wizards will give it all the support in the world , but times have changed , games must change with them . and um ... i don't want to make any red wizards ever again . the fatality rate at gamigo is 100 percent and it is permanent ...
i got off subject a little ... good luck with any retro lc projects and nice post .

Retro-LC

YES! YES! YES! I do agree: Retro-LC would be real fun and no longer science.
I have been playing LC since 2009 and feel it's developing far and farer away from a nice smooth game :D
But I would appreciate the old Juno, too.

Sorry, for my poor English ;)

The old Juno will sadly never happen. It was changed by the old developers and the secrets of the changes remained with them.

The closest we will get to an old retro server is Horizon where there are no OP accessories, pets, or GM made armor/weapons.

Maybe they need to hire a secret developer, to bring back those secrets :(

The old Juno will simply not be returned. It has been stated numerous times in numerous threads and it is our official stance on the subject.

I think I would rather see a rewrite of the current LC maybe updating the engine rewriting some of the maps that were just copied and pasted to give us content rather than an old school server.

I agree with surestrike , LC2 is the way to go , but i would not use the same engine . this is a problem as you certainly wont give 10 or 20 percent of the profits to use an engine like unreal 4 . so it would require you to write your own source code ,that would take a whole lot of effort money and time .

perhaps the old engine can be updated , you still need to import the maps and run them through something like tank and then rapid tank . ( I like to think it could have glass ceilings ) the old engine doesn't have very good second story tiles , new engines do . the same maps would have better graphics and use 90 percent less memory .
you cant use glass ceilings in an online game , its an online game .

old juno had insurmountable problems there is no way it could be used with the old engine . a real shame when you have dreams of the maps of juno magically changing with the seasons . lets say you could do all this , you have to find the maps that were supposed to be transferred to gamigo , you are In luck , lc is the most copied game of all time . take the maps off of old drives ,installs , disks ect . now you have a new problem , you have to repopulate the mobs , npcs and invisible barriers .

the old wizard knows exactly where every mob in old juno and merac belongs and where most of the flaws are works for free but doesn't work for gamigo or have any right to mess with thier stuff . ( do not mess with other peoples stuff )

soo what was so wrong with old juno ? ever go to prokion temple and end up underneath it and not be able to interact and have to port or reload ?
old juno was worse . mass disconnects on sunday . wizards dropping onto the grid and navigating by clicking on the sky because they just had know if anyone was below or not , blocking it didn't help ,the problems got worse , a couple of times I didn't discoe and fell in between to a juno with no graphics but mobs ,
the only time I have ever seen absolute zero lag in an online game on any machine or connection . I played for a few minutes it was very surreal . old juno cannot be used with the current engine .
those were just some the minor problems I saw with old juno , who knows what else was going wrong .I thought a little story would help ,I hope I did not say too much .
once again good luck with any retro lc projects ,just like at aeria , you are free to play .

Subsequent versions of Serious Engine are in fact heavy modifications of predecessors, so it shouldn't be that hard to upgrade to current v.4. Still someone would have to pay for the licence and implement it.

type in games made with serious and you will not find last chaos on the list . type in games made with unreal and you probably wont find it there either , I researched this years ago and I found it listed as a very obscure unreleased version of unreal . its not in the wiki .
there just isn't going to be a retro lc but there could be an upgraded LC or even an LC2 !

dreaming of a Last Chaos 2 game ...

Yes ... A Last Chaos 2 game would be AMAZING ~ !!! The only thing I sometimes tire of about this game is the clunky combat, somewhat blah graphics ( although I actually like retro games - and have a high tolerance for old graphics ) and the soundtrack is IRRITATING ( I know this is off topic but , at least we should get a new soundtrack - In my humble opinion ... ~ Take Care All & Blessed Be ~ !!!

this is gamigo lc forum we cannot talk about illegal servers , the forums use a point system , and our accounts can be sanctioned .
I said too much the post got edited I lost points .
the current team is improving the current version level cap 185 with high level gear and maps . making a retro lc and or using the map of old juno is not viable , you would have to remove all the mobs or it has too many flaws .
i would love to make ... LCSP ... Last chaos ( single player ) while we are on the subject of the impossible ..oh wait i don't own it and its not legal . hmmm...sounds like a very bad idea as i like to use computers and phones and gadgets that can connect online . and no i don't like fines and or imprisonment ... and id lose all my work ? ..
the subject is old school lc and i got off post a little .

You want LC as single player game? Well just log in and do your thing because server populations are that low it feels more like an single player game than a MMO.

You have to keep in mind how old the game is. Also those things we do not speak of, are a very high risk if you choose to play. Most are coped with fraud and theft of your personal information. While population may vary at least here there is proper security.

Old School

I remember playing LC when it was with Aeria Games.
It was a long time ago and back then there were literally thousands of people playing on any given day.
You could not go anywhere in the game without bumping into lots of people.
Now it's 2020 and times have most definitely changed. Most of the people here are part of the "old breed" of LC.
It's safe to say that the majority have moved on to many other (and newer) games.
I came back to LC after a long (very long) time away, I found that the game had been sold and that it had actually been improved (even though many think not).
In returning to LC I discovered that pretty much everything has changed and it was a new learning curve for me to remember what was back then, isn't what it is now.
I like this game better than the old game (and yes I played both).
Gamigo should keep making refinements to what they have, not make massive changes to jump back 13 years or so.
Keep what we have......just improve on it.
Who knows...….with enough improvements and some word of mouth by the player (us), we may just get back some of the old Aeria players.

"Keep The Game".....
