  1. @Ryan, 30 minutes into your cast and loving it. To be honest glad the Rift chat is over. It killed me that you couldn’t remember the name of the card game in Vanguard, but I forgive you. It was called diplomacy and you would level it like any thing else.

  2. @Yak: Sounds familiar, but there is also a classic board game by the same name… so my mind is stuck there. Thanks for noting this. Going to google it now… maybe an image will clear up the memory issue for me. I liked that game, btw. :)

  3. Bro, make sure the podcast is not a burden. And it doesnt tax on your family and important time.

    A bit like a gift, as long as you like to give it and have fun with it, we will gladly listen.


  4. @ray ray: Thanks, bro! Sent an email out to krush the other day to try to nail down a date for our cast. Can’t wait to get that guy on.

  5. @Ryan Hey man great show! I miss the intro and extro music from your cast and it gets you in the mood. Thanks for your kind words about my show as well! We really need to hook up and do a cast, it’s been too long and loads to talk about! Have you watched the E3 vids of http://www.tera-online.com/ This is not your typical click and unload MMO, there is no auto targeting. Check it out as it looks promising.

  6. Ryan, don’t re-do your binds/hotbars! I can’t imagine re-doing all that work:


    The XML files in that folder contain all of your binds/hotbars/options settings.

  7. @Yak: Thanks! And no intro music because I’m to lazy to put it in. Now if listeners said they quit listening and they think that’s why, then I’d put it back in. I’ve been really enjoying the finish and upload scenario. And we do need more cast.

    @Emo: Thanks! I learned the very same thing while talking to Krush last night. Great coincidence. Thanks for posting! Seriously, that was going to be murderous.

  8. It’s a good idea to save a copy of your three files from your darkfall setup:

    You could Zip them up and email them into a web-based email accout or put them on flash drive so you will always have a backup. As for your naga mouse macros, there is probably a way to save your profile for backup.
