    Yes i was thinking of all the wipes they did. Was boring to get all the things again. And with a RPG game, loosing all the levels...

    nm, just got a tip from a friend of this game, so waiting for the release whilst programming on my own game.

    One thing that might happen rather than wiping whole characters, is that once they've fully implemented all the skills and all their charges they might refund everyone's skill points mebbe? Or can you already do that in the game (I've only played the demo!)?

    Oh yup. I was totally enjoying Starbound, (I actually still do) but then there were so many wipes in short succession that I actually lost interest. Now I'm waiting until it is fully released and give it another go.
    As for Grindea, I honestly dont mind a wipe there, if I think back how many times we've beaten stuff like Secret of Mana, all the time starting from zero and knowing it from the beginning to the end.

    For me, its alot alot easier to start an RPG from zero multiple times then games where you build up your stuff and explore lots of worlds. (like Starbound, Terraria and overall strategy games)

    I have actually not tried legend of mana, it does look fun though.

    Figured it would be better to hold off on Starbound until they get either a stable patch where you can enjoy some of their content and no wipes.
    Tactrix is probably right though, as well as the damage and items probably being tested already in the closed beta so a wipe wouldn't be necessary unless it was in a huge universe.

    What sort of game are you making, if you don't mind me asking?

    It's enjoyable, I just wish they had the different pixel system from the start. Having to grind for pixels and creating items 5 times over was annoying, I'm thankful that they are making a different system like farming, house creation and adventuring.

    I might be able to endure a wipe, but I consider my friends who probably level up like crazy and then have to start back down at level 1 again.

    I think I have played Terraria a lot of times by now. :)

    Sweet, someone else who also played Legend of Dragoon! High five!

    Please tell me you also tried Shadow hearts?

    If you ever get the chance to play it, I recommend it, but it's difficult to have to main characters if you are gonna play it with your friends, they have to settle with a companion type of character.

    No problem. ( haven't gotten time to read the forum rules yet, so please excuse me if linking to other games is forbidden )

    Essentially its a city building / management game. akin to dwarf fortress, but will have a larger focus on expansion and defence.

    Changing the topic back to Secret of Grindea i have a small question about the demo: No matter whether i play in fullscreen or window mode, after switching to another zone about 5-10seconds later the game becomes really slow and stays that way until i go to the next region. My computer normally can handle much more complex games, is this fixed in the full version or might i have some configuration error?

    It could have something to do with compatibility, but I'm no expert. At least it's not a major problem though, just try not to switch from windowed to full screen?

    There is a /respec command in the beta right now that allows you to try out all the skills so that you don't have to make a new character every time to try them all out. Going from beta to full release will probably not be a big change in the skills so a skillpoint reset at the end of the beta seems pretty useless. :p

    Is your windows all up to date? All I can think of!

    Aha! I'll look out for that!

    The problem is that the bug occurs no matter if i play in full screen or window mode, so your suggesiton unfortunately doesn't help.

    Edit: Yes i reinstalled my Windows 7 about 3 weeks ago and have every update(and as mentioned i have no problems in other games)

    Sorry I can't be more help! Try posting the problem in the bug reporting forums, I dunno if that makes it more likely to be seen by someone in the know faster?

    Tried? I love the series! >w<
    "Okay, look over here. smile and say cheese!"
    Even if it was a quote from the third game, Covenant(the second) is my favorite.

    Another edit: Tried running as administrator, problem persists

    Post it to the bug part of the forum. The Ferrets will certainly look into it.
