Mirage Legacy ORPG Engine [New Community support!]

Have a look:

!

NEW - Mirage Legacy is currently undergoing a long-term support plan, you can take part by posting in the new Voltisoft Subforum about your latest endeavors with the engine. We’ll be releasing tons of information soon!

What?

Mirage Legacy is a Custom Version of Eclipse 2.3 returning some of the best source additions from the Eclipse community into one simple but dynamic engine with the basic needs of an ORPG ready for you. Unleash the power of Mirage and Eclipse with one engine that is free and open source now, and forever.

Why?

The reason is simple. The history of Eclipse and Mirage are being quickly and easily forgotten by many and the true spirit of Eclipse is being lost. This is a tribute to what it once was and what it can become. Create the game your way with no limits, no restrictions, and open source code.

What can it do?

-Open source now, and forever.

:Don’t like something? Want something new? Open up Visual Basic 6 and

have your way with it however you’d like. The engine is free, and always will be.

-Rich Event System

:Resembling the system implemented in the RPG Maker series, edit and

customize events to create NPCs and Cinematics like no other ORPG. Create detailed

and rich dialogues and riddles that rival anything out there.

-Quest System

:Create epic quests and adventures with great rewards and challenging tasks of all kinds with

a rich and detailed Quest editor packed in.

-Social Enhancements

:Take advantage of the packed in Guild system, E-Mail system and Various chat channels

included in the engine to give your players every method of communication they’d ever

need, and if you ever need more, the program’s built in packet system is clearly understood

and open to edits.

-Combat Enhancements

:Enhance your spell casting, sword slashing experience with a clearly understood pet system

and combat tweaks like auto-targetting, Item consume tweaks and NPC speed options, all packed

on top of the rich combat system. Take the battle to the long-distances with an open and frantic

Projectile combat system integrated into the Weapon editor.

I have questions!

But this isn’t the spirit of Mirage, you’re adding useless crap. Not to mention the description feels like a jab in the wrong direction.

Nice logo, but you just added bunch of tutorials from here to your CW. There are many alot better CW released here with alot better features. And also not no mention that some of tutorials what you used is buggy (for example pet system). But good luck with it.

I don’t think you should use the name Mirage. I think here the spirit of Mirage is being used as a symbol of a free and open source engine, which is not accurate.

In my first interactions with Mirage, 10 or so years ago, I started grinding the pirates and chocobos in a game made with the Mirage engine which Shannara bought from Consty. Within a bit the Mirage engine was released to the public as closed source. Not long after, Shannara sold the source to Kael who made PlayerWorlds, which to this day is free and closed source.

I’m not sure what the first iteration of Consty’s code as free open source was. Mirage Source, which nowadays is also nothing like the original Mirage, has always been free and open source, but was released years after the creation of Mirage. If I remember correctly, it was basically made free and open source because it fell in so many hands it became somewhat ubiquitous (sound familiar?). The idea of Mirage + Eclipse is redundant, because much of Mirage is still echoed within Eclipse.

Again, thank you very much for sharing your engine (and the time spent on a particularly well-done topic post), but I’m sure you can think of a better handle for a free open source engine than a muddy history.

Great, another clutter-duck engine. Time to test this out, I guarantee 90% will be from poorly written tutorials -.-

Edit: Nailed it.

Great, another clutter-duck engine.

i can say the same for EO4. if you don’t want ppl talking crap about your engine, then don’t talk crap about someone else’s engine. /nuffsaid

You was doing same about my engines, so your are contradicting yourself Growl.

I only made one engine and it was crap to begin with. you’re Mirage Miracles or whatever the name was(haven’t remembered all the names of all the CVs on here) is looking better than your others.

I never said my engine was great so i am not contradicting myself in no way.

Good job! 🙂

First of all the definition of a ‘clutter-duck’ engine is a bunch of poorly written source code tutorials nailed together. E.O. 4.0. doesn’t contain any and thus can’t be classified as one.

actually i can. you’re just putting in useless things and just “disabling them” until the “dev” needs that system. woopdie doo that’s totally not called inefficient. it all comes back down to closed/open source accessibility. anywho i don’t want to continue this conversation in this topic any longer so if you so desire to reply, please put it as a pm and not a post.

Cleaned the topic.

Disclaimer: Before I have members jumping down my throat I will explain. The discussion went straight to bashing this engine, then to bashing EO 4, neither of which should be here. If you wish to report a problem or bug go for it but degrading an engine because some of its content came from a tutorial completely invalidates your argument.

Thanks

Silver or Gold ? ROFL

I remember the old Mirage Source. It’s actually the engine a company called “CyberConnects LLC” used to create their Dot Hack game about 6 years ago. It got me started on programming, so I could consider it my roots (Not a great root, but still a root). In the spirit of that I am going to download this, and see what the hulla ballo is all about.

Additionally, I’ve been thinking about donating to the community at large in order to spur some more developments. I may be a programmer, but I tend to be lazy :3

Let me articulate a couple things to you all seeing as there are people criticizing my choice in naming the product.

First the Eclipse name has been coming under fire. With the new management and official engine there is the possibility of changes in the licensing in the name, which nobody here can really confirm.

I’ve a read a bit about buggy systems here and really my only reply to that is to prove that to me so I can work with it, because really, I’m not going release this without providing support.

At the end of the day I’m getting complaints from people who won’t need this or want it. But that’s fine, because that’s one of many voices to hear for feedback. Those who want this now have it and that’s really what we put our stuff out there for. Do I acknowledge the statements made by people like Stein and Zeno? Of course. Do I think branding this under Mirage might be misleading? I’m definitely going to debate myself about it.

Again, People will need it, people won’t, but I’ll listen anyway.

descriptions on the hotbar.

Kibbelz.

-Shrank and redesigned a few key editors, and
added some a new command to the Admin panel.

-Fixed issues with text and editors that were present

=fixes in v1.1.1

-Fixed a bug in the Warp function

-Tweaked the rendering system for text to make word-wrapping line itself up properly.

I really like this engine, 1 it works with some older tutorials like the quest system which I would argue is essential to making a ORPG, and 2 it incorporates the event system which jcsnider did a great job on.

BUGS:

  • I cannot activate an event no matter what I do, I press ctrl nothing happens.

SUGGESTIONS:

  • Possibly make a quest tutorial or just put a quest in the game that can be activated.

  • I suggest adding a transparent backing over the text that you can toggle on and off in the options. (It’s really hard to read text with some of the map tiles behind it).

  • Add the option for an event to give you a quest.

I am a fan of what you’re doing here and can’t wait to see fixes and additions.

But this isn’t the spirit of Mirage, you’re adding useless crap. Not to mention the description feels like a jab in the wrong direction.

NO. this is frikin awesome

UPDATE: I’ve cleaned up the thread, added some new links, provided some notices. Thanks for supporting Legacy! We’re topping the IndieDB charts! If you like the engine, head on over to our IndieDB page and give us a good rating!
