Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [TO DEVS] WMT fangame

I am sorry to burst your bubble thror.

But no, there will be no alternate version of tyrant that would even possibly pass off as a fangame of tyrant.
And if there was, it would not feel the same as Tyrant and I myself personally would not play it.

Basically the reason why I am not jumping ship to TU or Cry Havoc, and won’t even take a look at that new game they are currently developing right now.

The devs are far too lazy to keep tyrant up and they are scared that any information about the inner workings of tyrant would allow someone to make a new better game that would possibly be much more popular than TU and CH and kill off their incredibly high income.

you are not bursting any bubbles mr Shieru.
you just do not understand that a fan made game CAN be as good as the original, if not better, regardless of if you would play it or not.

Besides, we do not need any info on the inner workings of Tyrant. What we know already is good enough to duplicate it. Only problem is copyrights of art & names.

I also will never jump to TU, but not b/c of sentimental reasons/attachment to Tyrant, for gameplay/money grab reasons.

A game that is so severely p2w as TU, is not worth playing IMO.

PS. no need to reply to me… let the thread run its course without us derailing it…
PS2.

a great community i see here.
most people do not care enough to support it, and the rest seem to think someone is going to recreate the game for money-grab reasons. (therefore hiring artists etc.)

But think a little. If it were an open-source project, the game would stop being p2w, but everything could be gold-buyable (some part of the economy should stay in, for balance reasons)
Cards and mechanics rebalancing could be done, in order to unpowercreep the game and make lots more cards useable.
Besides, any cheating problems and glitches would get fixed much faster.

You very well know that overwhelming community support in the past has made Synapticon listen.
So if you would like this project, shut up and support it, regardless of what $yn says, and we will see what happens.

Only barring factor i can see (from $yn’s standpoint) is if they want to use their card art for TU or other games….. But if the “libreTyrant” could gain momentum, we could finally make even our own cards….

I used to hate Ogres starting out. My strike decks couldnt take them out

that’s one of my first Tyrant memories too. damn ogre spam decks!
I was so happy when i got the correct cards to beat them. :)

Also, i remember when i first won a gold tourney and got Apollo.

overlook is not that good, but i guess, if we used what we can get our hands on, if synapse ever filed a lawsuit, we could just remove the art, and stay with the rest. (since, by Jetu’s words, mechanics and UI are non-copyrightable)

Yup I hear you, they have declined access to code and servers, but they have been quite friendly to unofficial projects in the past, for instance they didn’t try to shut down the fansite, in fact they even gave it special API privileges AFAIK.

Question for devs if you are reading this:
“If someone made an opensource client from scratch using the front-end assets, put lots of links to official site and made clear ‘all content © copyright Synapple’, would that be OK by you?”

DemonCore, you should probably make a new tread, with the [TO DEVS] tag, so that you will maximize the chance for them to see it and reply.

If you’re a dev, why not just make a new one with others that are willing. A better one. After learning from their mistake?


recreating/finding new artwork and renaming/finding new mechanics can about as hard as recreating the code.
Also gfx designers are harder to become interested.

But if we could use the available front-end assets without copyright problems… then just devs can do a remake.

PS. stop it already with:

Keep in mind we’re talking a year out, not right now. Regardless, we are not giving away our code or control of our servers for multiple reasons.


what about card images / mechanics then?
if someone will make a quick coding of simplified tyrant client-server behaviour but on separate url and with new game client, but with your card images?

sorry to jump in, but have not seen any response to this particular question.
if synapticon accepts to give the cards images.. a remake may be possible.

did i miss an answer?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Tyrant is dying

of course its dying. has been for years imo… hence the majority of threads about it (well many of those are just shit)
the question is do we care about Tyrant dying right now?

now its not p2w and actually can be fun.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Memorializing the Tyrant experience

they said, that they will not open-source the code.

Quite different from releasing the art and data rights. (specifically the cards, missions, raids & quest xml’s and the images)

the community could redo the code on its own… and find a server..

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Ask OOH (about parenting)

Hello Nirav, and everybody else. Haven’t posted since around the time i quit. Haven’t even read the forums until today, and i was quite happy about that….. until now.

Soo, i got here for other reasons, but its time for me to ask a very critical question from know-it-all niVar!
Btw, i hope this hasn’t already been asked:

“What is the optimal number of children? How do you choose and why?”
(note, that i want a complete list of advantages and disadvantages of every possible number between 0 and 8 children)
