    well at least lunch lady (inside joke) will still have her job.
    I think they made this move to primarily keep UO from shutting the doors. I don't see how a company like EA is proud of the financial rate of UO.

    But thank you Vorspire for bringing this to the communities attention.
    Edit: I wonder what this means for the future of the free community. The community that has their heart and soul poured into a game we love so much.

    Yes hopefully this will be a good step for the free community and not a huge problem :)

    The reason they are touting this as good news is because the Mythic UO team was down to just a couple people. At least they will have a few more devs now.

    Send a copy of the server code my way when you get hired. :) I just don't think I could bring myself to sign the NDA.

    Server code? I'd rather have the source to the client. We have plenty of server solutions...

    Either one would be entertaining. I mean honestly, who names a data structure "MapThingie" or "Treecrap"?

    The sad thing is that no one has renamed them in 7 versions.

    Edited: Thought better of posting that, at least until I go back and reread forum rules to make sure it's ok. I don't remember what the policy is on posting client stuff.

    Once you infiltrate the art department please drop the art tools onto a thumbnail drive.

    I don't see the forum rules link, so I'm going to go ahead and post this. Feel free to moderate it at will.

    I thought this was an entertaining debug statement that was left in one of the clients:

    "CDrawItem::RemoveFromDrawList(): code would have asserted because 'DrawMapThingie::table[locY][locX] == this' evaluates to 0. the GMs are getting this assertion failure a lot, but hugh cannot, even after spending many hours following them around in the game :-(\n"

    Poor Hugh. I'd hate to be the one following GMs around for hours trying to track down an intermittent bug. I'm guessing he's an intern.
