Developer's Update #22, Client-Side Interpolation and the Movement SystemHello citizens of EverEmber, This is MrSingularity, bringing you the latest update on progress in the construction of EverEmber's movement system. [IMG] As the movement system's alpha state nears completion, I wanted to explain a little bit of what client-side interpolation is and how it makes the game a bit more enjoyable for everyone. Imagine you're an archer trying land a perfect shot on a moving target. Since you have a ping of somewhere between...
Developer Update #21, Network and Core FunctionalityHello citizens of EverEmber, This is MrSingularity, bringing you the latest update on progress in the construction of EverEmber's movement system. I've been at work for the past 2 weeks or so setting up a system that allows the server to accurately pick up and decipher your movement requests and send them back to you so that your client knows where you are supposed to be. Here are gifs of the testing in action: https://i.imgur.com/9l5uz3v.png...

Development Update #15, Big stepsHello Adventurers, Its been far overdue for a new development post, but we've got a lot to talk about! Our team has been working diligently on making three core things for the game, the actual game, the trailer, and the kick starter. Lets start off with the game's development. Recently we've spent a large chunk of time optimizing the game. All of the developers were slowed down due to the massive performance issues that we were having. We've managed to optimize the various settings and...
One is the "Momentum Attack System" which works for Melee and Ranged attacks, for melee attacks the more you attack the more momentum stacks you get (up to 5) (you have to keep them up by attacking otherwise they will dissappear upon a timeout [5 segs that are updated with each attack]) when you reach the 5 stacks you have a short amount of time to press Shift (Shift was choosen because it's the nearest to Ctrl, so people will easily associate it as the "Strong Attack Button", CTRL being the "Normal Attack" [kinda like Dinasty Warriors XD]), when you successfully perform a Momentum Attack you will inflict 1.1x the damage of the normal attack, for ranged attacks (bows) they get a momentum stack everytime they launch an arrow (since they will usually miss a lot of shots on moving targets) on every fifth arrow they can launch a Momentum Attack. For Melee and Ranged pressing Shift before the time is right will reset the momentum stacks (and not attack).
The other one is the "Concentrated (Spell-)Casting System" which starts when you press Shift while casting a spell (or when you cast a spell with Shift pressed to start immediatelly), this will start a QTE (<- it's a link) where you have to press a series of arrows in the correct order (max:4), failing one means it will perform a regular spell, if you get it right when you finish casting the spell it will do 1.1x the damage/heal/vital. (you can use both Arrow keys or the WASD)
Right: Concentrated Casting
Its been ages since i've posted anything on the website, and I just want to sincerely apologize for my insanely long absence with a very minor warning. I will try to touch on everything I can in one post so I don't have to make a vlog post #1, 2, 3, etc...
- My explanation for not posting or developing in such a long time comes down to a few things. I have been extremely busy with my university studies, exams, work, and friends. Its been a long and very different semester for me. I've had very little time for myself this semester, i had a job, extremely challenging classes, living alone and doing everything alone (everyone who cooks, cleans, and maintains everything alone knows what its like). I've had endless days in university in which i wake up at 4am, finish assignments, and come home only at 8-9pm. At that point, I just don't have the energy for EverEmber, and would rather hang out with some friends, do csgo with a friend, or call up a grill. On top of all that, internship hunting, developing myself professionally, etc... On top of that, the collapse of the website a few months ago, loss of momentum and users we had really made me lose motivation.
- EverEmber has turned out to be an amazing project with an amazing team, but it wasn't what I had originally envisioned, but I still want to see it succeed! I will be returning and working on the game little at a time. I have a huge list of everything that needs to be done compiled.
- The website will be fixed-up very soon, i'll add more images to the scroll bar, and have updates posted shortly.
I want to once again thank EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR EVEREMBER TEAM MEMBERS! Thank you so much for staying with us, and working on the project, I can't express my gratitude enough (sorry slash, still can't pay you). I will be posting a few more announcements soon, we'll keep everyone up to date!
Shrunk the background image and moved it over for contrast and to speed up the site. This seems to have drastically cut down site load times...
Soon more updates will be coming to the website...
See yah in game,

I will let them give updates as to the specifics but I just wanted to check in and let you guys know we are not dead
Since our last update we have remade the about us section, the chat box had been improved , and all of our admins and moderators should have been put back on website.
When I get time I will get the website HTTPS working again and the google link should be fixed if thats not currently working.
Also I have mirrored the download onto the Amazon cloud so now you can choose between google drive and amazon drive for the client download.
See you in game,
Everyone unfortunately is going to need to make a new account since the database was corrupted.
Now we are on a much better hosting system and this problem should never happen again. Weekly backups are now routinely in place to prevent such things. Sorry for the inconvenience.
