Run as Administrator.
Or delete Win10.

If neither of those work, Google's first result is this:

It reminds me of Chivalry.
What are the differences?

Well that's it right there - the catch (with further support from the team).

Anyone can do anything except it will be met with our authoritative wall
I don't think you actually know what "support" means.
Here you go:
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/support

There is in fact many 3d problems with the game that I'm sure your 3d artist can handle, but like I said (priorities).
Just like the coders, the artists are done working on Savage as well.

And saying XR coders have access to the source is like saying "oh it's open source (to me alone) but if you're an xr coder (which only I am) then it's truly open (insert sarcastic smiley)"
The last time it was open source (or leaked), the playerbase was more interested in making hacks and gaining advantages over one another than actually improving the game. And we have many XR Coders, so you'll notice none of them actually want to work on Savage anymore. The only people interested in the source, are people that want an advantage out of it. So, indeed, we will say no to those people.

Now there's probably a better area to discuss this, but when you look at the front page of newerth and this topic "no troll patch for you" it's a very tastless ugly topic to have pinned, and just makes me feel the development situation is sour/dire and self destructive. All the more reason to relinquish the project to other willing participants.
Cheap attempt to back out of a losing battle.
There is no development; the game is old, move on.
But the truth is, Savage Rebirth (heavily based on old XR) source is open and anyone could continue development on that and take over Savage instead of trolling forums. I've been told Rebirth is way better than XR, so it would make sense using that codebase instead. Why isn't anyone? Because, as I can repeat for your ignorant self, the only people interested want to gain advantages by coding hacks, not actually improve the game.

You somehow seem surprised that there is an April Fools patch with pointless temporary April Fools content.
I can't help you with that one; you're just whining for the sake of whining.
But here you go:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fools%27_Day



Nobody is being forced to develop this game anymore. If "abstract you" are not interested to develop - don't do it and that's it. The back side of this question that nobody else who could help can gain an access because most of you would say "no".
Are you actually drk? Because you're saying some really stupid things. And drk is not this stupid.

Every XR Coder has access to the source and can independently decide to make updates, with further support from the rest of the team.

If there was no one interested anymore, we would just shut it all down and save the time, effort, and money.
One of these days that might even happen despite there still being a handful of core players - flipping the metaphorical switch is very easy.

It's an incredibly old game, which has received a ton of content, fixes, additions, and freshness over the many years.
But tell me this: Why would anyone spend the time working on horrendously old and messy tech to bring in further improvements to a game that nearly no one wants to play anymore?

It's not criticism, it's entitlement.
You were called out for it - learn to take criticism. Oops. Rolleyes

Groent was kind enough to explain it to you, but do you actually understand?
6  Announcements / Main Page News / Re: No troll patch for you! on: April 24, 2019, 04:38:30 pm
This wasn't even funny when so many bugs in the game remain - prioritise your time better maybe?
I believe there's very little code needed for these kind of changes. I believe most of this was models, textures and some gamescripts.
There was indeed no bins patch.

Also, "This game is free and has had so much work and time put into it for absolutely nothing in return, but I'm a spoiled brat that feels entitled to have everyone else slave away for my personal entertainment in their spare time because I somehow am of the delusional opinion that I deserve absolutely everything in the world at my beck and call just because of my amazing achievement of having been born because my mother spread her legs for whoever my dad might be." - we will get right on the next patch, sir MegaBD, sorry for the delay!

He means 28-12, but his math is bad.
(He also couldn't find an edit button.)

I can't help you with Linux, but I can point you towards these:
Mr.C.I.A. has put in a lot of effort to make Linux installations easier.

Well done, that certainly took a lot of effort.
Back when I asked for information, I barely got any and abandoned the idea of recreating this.
10  Savage XR / General Savage XR Discussion / Re: newerth.com stat panel improvement on: December 25, 2018, 04:42:10 pm
I suppose gold-usage-per-life would be nice to see.

edit: money earned per life would also be really interesting! In theory, one could even calculate money earned on average per kill aswell (but it wont tell you anything about the players skill due to savage's lottery loot system on enemy kill)
This would be less useful since killing creeps (like monkits) increases your gold without any actual danger/fighting.
So to boost that stat, you just need to spend time killing creeps each life, which goes against it being useful to determine skill.
There already is a "NPC kills" stat to determine team-helping value (together with resources mined).

Blocking requests, making money or siege for "officers only" don't work
Why not?

is there a way to stop this manner in any way?
The above auto off options.
Kicking repeatedly.
Reporting to the Server Admin.
Lock to spec vote.
12  Savage XR / Support Forum / Re: Mac or Internet Connection problem on: September 15, 2018, 11:19:15 am
We don't have many Mac players, and certainly little Mac support.
The few that do use a Mac haven't replied yet.

Do other games, especially if you host a server, have issues?

Right, rebalancing changed the order of sac and firewards.

Thanks for taking the time to look at the tutorials.
Makes you wonder when the 1 turned into a 2. Grin
14  Savage XR / Bug Reports / Re: [GNU/Linux][amd_64] Installer crash on: August 28, 2018, 06:38:30 pm
I just tried the Human tutorial and its completely broken!  Shocked
The Arsenal Building (the very first building you are expected to build) does not ever appear.
It requires an entire remake, since you can't fix something that only breaks for some people.
It was designed and scripted by a different person than the beast tutorial; hence remaking it in the same style as the beast tutorial would help.

So its not your graphics card.
Both hardware and software can effect timings in the tutorials and thus can indeed break it. Angry

Hopefully someone from the EvO clan (who created Savage XR) will get a chance to look at it.
EvO? Huh Shagroth, you're up!

Unfortunately, creating a new fully updated installer keeps getting delayed for more advanced versions/patches. Ticked Off
