  1. Forum Update

    The ACEmulator forums will be unavailable for a brief period later tonight (around 12am EDT) in order to perform a major upgrade from IPS Suite v4.1 to v4.2. Initially, the forums will be switched to an "off" state in order to perform the upgrade. Once the software upgrade is complete I'll then need to re-install the new version of our theme since nothing from v4.1 is compatible with v4.2. During this time the default stock theme will be displayed while I work out any problems with the main theme installation. Estimated down time: 15-30 mins Estimated theme replacement time (stock theme will be displayed during this time): 1-3 hours Edit: This was completed successfully. View full article

  3. Where do you download the game?

    Fixed the ac_data.zip link.
  4. Frelorn Visits ACEmu Discord

    I just wanted to give a shout out to Andy Cataldo, also known as "Frelorn", for dropping by our Discord chat the other day! It was awesome to see him around answering some basic questions from the community and I hope he stops by more often! Thank you. Here's a pic of Frelorn in his Admin armor in-game: He expressed how much he missed Asheron's Call, the players, and helping out the community in general. He also let us know that he is indeed under a Non Disclosure Agreement for now so what he says or can do to help is very limited (which isn't surprising). Here's a quick recap of the conversation in case you missed it: View full article

  6. Where do you download the game?

    Here are the official files from Turbine: http://content.turbine.com/sites/cli...ac1install.exe http://content.turbine.com/acpatch/ac_data.zip
  7. Questions

    It's probably not worth setting up a server at the moment unless you're a C# developer looking to contribute. There's not a whole lot players can do besides run around at the moment. I'm sure someone will eventually make a video on how to set everything up once we get further down the road. Eventually ACEmu will be as close as possible to how AC was right before it was shut down. I can't speak for PhatAC but I truly doubt they have the same goal in mind.
  8. Mod Abuse Already

    Your Discord ban was lifted shortly after it happened. I agree that it should have just been deleted and a warning issued first. What I don't agree with is this childish comment, especially for a 48 year old veteran. Do you seriously think that trolling and saying "let the fun begin" is the best way to go about things?
  9. Completely computer illiterate

    Looks like you're mixing up ACEmu with PhatAC. PhatAC is closed source and doesn't allow people to create their own server. Where as ACEmu is open source and allows anyone to create their own server. Take a look at our Github Readme for quick instructions on creating your own server: Here You can also join our Discord chat channel and ask for some help there and I'm sure someone would be more than happy to help!
  10. Indeed it is! It's always great to see more people interested in helping with the development of ACEmu.
  11. Completely computer illiterate

    Hey there, welcome to the forums! ACEmu isn't very user friendly at the moment since we're still in the beginning stages of development. You'll need to set up a few different programs to get started: Visual Studio 2015 (2017 works too) [Needed to compile the source code] MySQL 5.6 or MariaDB 10+ [Needed for the database] DB Manager (Most people use HeidiSQL which is included with MariaDB) [Needed to edit the database and import SQL files] That's only the start of it. You'll then need to download the source code from our Github, compile it in Visual Studio, install the database software, import the database files into it, and change the settings of Config.json to your own. There are some other steps as well depending on if you want to run it locally or have other people connect to it. Honestly I'd suggest to head on over to our Discord chat channel and ask for some help in the #acemu_help channel if you're dead set on trying to get an ACEmu server up and running and you're new to this stuff. You can join our Discord chat here, no need to sign up: https://discord.gg/mVtGhSv
  12. Rare Item Upgrades

    The great thing about emulators is the fact that you're able to modify almost anything that you didn't like about the original game through code changes, database edits, rule settings, quest scripts, and more. Although our end goal is to recreate Asheron's Call as it was before the servers went down, you'll still be able to edit the game to your own vision. Database edits and rule settings will be the easiest way to change things up while scripting quests and direct source edits will be more difficult depending on your knowledge of C# and whatever scripting language we use for quests (most likely LUA).
  13. UAS2 Progress

    Looks like it's coming along nicely, impressive work.
  14. Spell Animations not Working

    Hi Drex, ACEmu doesn't have spells or most animations working just yet. You're probably referring to UAS2 or the "other" closed source emulator, both of which have nothing to do with us. I know it's a bit confusing but ACEmu is the new project which started a couple months ago when the official servers were shut down. The other two projects were started over a decade ago and currently have more working features than ACEmu.
  15. Our very own @Mogwai put together a very helpful video on how to work with ACLogView and the basic implementation of objects into the ACEmu server. He did an outstanding job explaining some of the inner workings of object creation so check it out if you're interested in this kind of stuff! Huge thanks to Mogwai for hosting this video conference!
