Update #9.1

We look at RuneScape's lates update, Summoning and Haircuts:

"One of the core aims of Upgrade Year is that we take a close look at existing content and make it better – this week this concerns Summoning and hairstyles: better usability, more pets and the return of the fringe.

You have provided us with so many ideas to improve the Summoning skill that we were spoilt for choice, and our wish list of improvements is getting longer and longer, but for now we have decided on the following improvements.

Firstly, we have raised the pet limit so that you can have twice as many pets as before. This seemingly simple change led to a major background change, which will improve the stability of the code so you will experience fewer bugs in future. Secondly, you don’t need to wait until a familiar has disappeared to use the next pouch; now you click a handy button in the Summoning interface to replenish your familiar’s timer to 100% when it has dropped below two and a half minutes. So, if you use beasts of burden to help carry things around, you can now use this button to keep them going, as long as you have another pouch of the same type in your inventory. Additionally, we have made it much more straightforward to trade in your pouches and scrolls with Bogrog, the ogre in Gu’Tanoth.

We often receive comments about and suggestions for new hairstyles from players on the forums. In particular, we read players' complaints that there was once a female hairstyle with a fringe that got removed. We searched and searched, but could not find any indication that this was ever the case, so we scratched our heads for a while...and then created one! Enjoy your fringes, and perhaps you might like to pay a visit to Party Pete to try out a special new hairstyle designed for partying.

Lilies of the valley have also blossomed around RuneScape. These fragrant spring flowers will stay until the next game update to celebrate the start of May.

Last but not least, we would like to point you towards a new link in the quest journals. The QuestHelp system is now accessible directly from your quest journal, and you don’t even need to log into the website to access either a hint or a spoiler for a quest.

As you’ll notice, this set of updates isn’t as large as you might have hoped, for which we apologise. A project we were hoping to release this week was found to have bugs, and so has been delayed until next week. While we’re aware that these are relatively small fixes, we hope that you’ll appreciate them nonetheless.

Update #9.2

New update for OSPRO.

First, as you may have noticed coming to the forum. We now have a portal! Complete with a lot of features including a chatbox. And if you scroll down enough, you can see another chatbox! There is one at the bottom of each page.

Next there is a new rank to our midst, OSPRO Forger. These people make maps in Halo 3 forge. This is a position for the people making sets for the Halo Machinima I am writing. If you would like to become a Forger, please go to the Halo Forger topic and apply. Please also supply a link to your fileshare with a map you have made so I can see how well you can forge.

All I can say for the applying to be a forger is you need to be voiced. And the ventrilo applications are not available. But anyone already in OSPRO Halo or OSPRO RS/Halo may apply. So go ahead and put in an application when the topic is available.

Also in the OSPRO Halo topic I shall make a thread for the voices YOU can do. This way I can write you into the script with a certain character. Also specify Gender. I know this seems a bit silly, but if you can do the tone of voice I can edit it to make it feminine. Audacity FTW.

Also for a final note of OSPRO RS/Halo I'd like to make a theme tune to play during the introduction and credits. I'd like it to be of our own material. Any instrument would be fine, But Guitar would be best. I am trying to teach myself the different notes to try and make one but I'd like to open up this project to the whole of OSPRO, Both RuneScape and Halo. So if you play an instrument, preferabley Guitar and have a way to record it, please send in your ideas via MSN/Aim/Yahoo.

And on a side note. If you know if a site which is good for learning notes, please tell me because this booklet I have is doing badly to help. It's not very helpful for where abouts on the guitar to position your fingers. Oh well.

Finally somethign to let you know about what I'm doing in RuneScape.
I have worked out that 100 pest control points gets me 54k xp or more depending on my level. At 92 it was 54k now I'm 93 and it might be more. Anyway, if I average 500 damage a game, thats 2k xp per game, 25 wins to get 100 points and 25 by 2000 is 50k. So every 100 points I get 100k xp. And also its 100 points an hour.
I play for a long time most days, so I am almost able to gain a level a day. So with the 13 days membership I have left, I should be able to get 99 attack. =D
