Keep Update 10/19/2007

Post by Myhrginoc » Sat Oct 20, 2007 3:35 am

Welcome to the Not The Usual News Report a.k.a. the Phrozen Keep Often-Weekly Update. We have a couple of items that don't fall in the regular classifications.

Rise of the Old Admin
We are fall-over-backwards pleased to announce the return of Jeff Bouley to the modding fold! Long-time members may remember our former admin and mod god, creator of Sanctuary Corrupted (Classic Diablo II) and Sanctuary in Chaos (Lord of Destruction). Real life stepped in a few years back, and Jeff retired from the Keep to devote his energies to the important task of raising a family. Jeff is back with a new (well, interrupted) project, Rise of the Old Gods. You can find out details about all three projects in the Sanctum Arcanum.

Secret Code Revealed!
One of our longest-running disappointments has been the ever-increasing array of code tweaks and tricks for Windows versions of the game, but nothing of note for non-Intel Macs. The entire code base is different, the file organization is different...and our Collegians of Wizardry all speak Intel. In steps Contrail, a new member who knows Power PC code; she has stepped into the void and pulled out some important nuggets. Her latest effort is no less than the expanded hireling inventory, which you DIY-ers can read about here.

Screenshot of the Week
This week's screenshot is, appropriately enough, from Sanctuary in Chaos. A sorceress wields new skill Arctic Lances while fending off harm with an aura of Arctic Womb.

Take it from The Pig: Th-th-th-th-that's all, folks!

Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

Just a small point of clarification - I'm female, not male. ;)
