    Patch Notes: 2021-06-08

    There have only been a few changes in the last couple of weeks; Attendance Rewards updated (better late than never..) The 50% Overweight status icon has been put back. The Renewal client we use displays the 70% as it's a Renewal Mechanic, but the server still uses the 50% value. The Scheduled Maintenance Announcement script has had a little toggle implemented which will allow players to know if maintenance will be going ahead on a week by week basis. An NPC will appear in Prontera and Caspen shortly.
  2. until
    At 11am Server Time every Tuesday pRO will go offline for routine updates. A connection may be obtained to the game server before 12pm, in which case the maintenance period has finished early. Patch Notes are posted to the Announcement area upon completion.

    Patch Notes: 2021-05-11

    The following information describes the changes made today that affect the game's mechanics. Max Base Level has increased from 99 to 250 for Transcendent Classes. 1st and 2nd Job Classes will remain at 99. Rates have increased: Base and Job EXP have increased to 200x Drop rates for Common, Healable, Equips and Extras have increased to 100x VIP Rates have also increased: Base and Job EXP have increased to 250x Drop rates for Common, Healable, Equips and Extras have increased to 130x Max Parameters have increased from 99 to 150 for Transcendent Classes. As mentioned in the initial announcement, I said it would be re-assessed. Max ASPD will increase from 198 to 199. Congrats, game mechanics are now unbalanced. All this because some of you wanted to solo MvPs and then wouldn't shut up about it. Other Changes Camilla has been rewritten and optimised, shortening the code by almost 50%. Added a Player Housing instance. Purchase your House Keys in Caspen. Info on website soon. Positioned Sister Vic in prt_church,184,15 for players to buy the new priest merc. Take note of item desc!!! Moved the Prontera Castle Flags to north of the central area. Removed the Rate Change channel announce. Reorganised @rates so the text fits nicely without needing to wrap. Note: There will be no Scheduled Maintenance next Tuesday (18th May).

    Upcoming Rate Changes 11th May

    I max all 6 stats at 110 at Base Level 199. If we increase this then alterations to InstaCast and ASPD will need to take place, which basically negates the point of making the changes in the first place. No.
  5. So, as you've all decided to turn this Low Rate server into a High Rate, the following will change on Tuesday 11th May. Max Base Level will increase from 99 to 250 for Transcendent Classes. 1st and 2nd Job will remain at 99. Rates will also increase: Base and Job EXP will increase to 200x Drop rates for Common, Healable, Equips and Extras will increase to 100x VIP Rates will also increase: Base and Job EXP will increase to 250x Drop rates for Common, Healable, Equips and Extras will increase to 130x Max Parameters will increase from 99 to 110 for Transcendent Classes. This can be re-assessed in the future. Max ASPD will increase from 198 to 199. Things that won't change: Cards for common and MvP will remain at 50x. This is the trade-off for increasing everything. InstaCast will remain at 150 Dex. There may well be other changes that will occur on Tuesday - you can see what's coming up by keeping an eye on the #pornro-commit-messages channel on Discord. Please also note that there will be no scheduled maintenance for Tuesday 18th May.

    Patch Notes: 2021-04-14

    So, quite a lot has occured over the last week, resulting in some rather large patches. The following lists as many of the PornRO changes as I could remember to write down before I lost some of my post-it notes! Script/NPC Changes Modified savepoint for all Kafras enabled in our server. They now match up with the warper's landing coordinates. @command modifications: @go has been enabled for normal player accounts. @go locations match with the warper's landing coordinates. Enabled @storage which will only open storage_1 (there is a quest in Caspen to have 4 storages). If you're VIP you will get a menu asking which storage you want to open. Modified NPC locations of Dr. Phloss and the Warper in every map they exist in. Added a Kafra to Hugel and other town maps that officially only have Cool Event Corp reps. Warper now allows you to select which dungeon floor or field you want to go to. Archer Village added as a separate warp location under the "Specials" warper menu. Added Card Remover (Wise Old Woman) Location 1; Payon next to the Tool Dealer (west of warper spawn). Location 2; Inside Hollgrehenn's building in Prontera. 100% success rate. Costs Zeny plus 1 Star Crumb and 1 Yellow Gemstone per item decarded. Attendance System is now available and will change monthly. Details can be found on the website. Cart/Falcon NPC now exists in Prontera. Prontera's Platinum Skills NPC is now facing the correct direction. Plagiarism NPC has been given a facelift and moved slightly. Updated Locked Treasure Box with actual items. Client Changes Increased chat size limit from 70 to 234 Main/Battle chat bar & windows. Chat Room chat bar & window. Added Attendance System. Hidden SNS and Tipbox Buttons. Hidden the generally useless Map button. Prontera has been given a facelift. Through some secret black magic, some of the NPCs in towns have been given wings. Updated Battleground tip text and available options in preparation for future updates. Client now opens the computer's default web browser when clicking on an item's ID in the description. Web Changes Discord link has now been added to the page footer. Attendance System now has a page that lists what's on offer Page: https://porn-ro.com/info/attendance/ Updated TinyMCE package to version 5 where appropriate. Fixed random homepage errors where "Latest News" lives. Online Peak now records and displays correctly. There are a vast number of changes introduced by rAthena which are not covered here, because they don't directly reflect gameplay.

    Database Overhaul

    All of our databases have now been brought upto date with rAthena's framework conversion from csv flatfiles to YAML data tables. What does this mean for you guys? Essentially, quicker edits and bug tracking. What does it mean for the server itself? Lots! The formation conversion aids several areas for behind-the-scenes, with the most prominent being the creation of new goodies! Custom items and mobs can now be added to our databases at a much quicker rate with less chance to introduce new bugs, which is good for everyone, right?! I've written a nice set of script-based tools that will further cut down the time it takes to create mobs and items, too.

    Double EXP Event

    From Thursday 8th April through to Thursday 22nd April all monsters will give you double EXP. The EXP boost does not include MvP EXP, Quest EXP, Heal/Resu EXP nor Vend EXP.
  13. Different servers, different admins, different everything That particular PornRO server was ~5+ years ago, which I had nothing to do with. Didn't even have an in-game account with them. Our PornRO sits on a VM in a private network that currently has 8 of our other gaming VMs. It's safe to say that PornRO doesn't need money to keep the lights on

    Player Avatars

    Since the beginning of Lust's development players have had the opportunity to choose a class. This has now all changed. Prior to the update there used to be 12 different classes available for players to choose from, which could be changed at any time by the player. These classes has specific stat boosts and through early testing of the game they worked well enough. A player could choose a particular class based on the equipment they're wearing, for example some heavy armour would provide a boost to Power and Endurance, so a player could switch to a class that provides Intelligence and/or Agility in order to give themselves some well-rounded stats. During testing of the Arena battling system, this was deemed to provide players with an unfair advantage. After the update, all players are now known simply as an "Entity" that exists in the Underworld. For this reason, Avatars have been introduced for some practical customisation. They are selectable from the Settings Cog at the bottom of the Main Menu and will display in the player HUD, the Arena, Demon Mail, Notifications and Trade screens. Basically, anywhere that a player's name is shown, the chosen avatar will also be displayed. The exception to this is the High Scores Appendices in the Book of Lore. There are currently 10 to choose to from, with plans to expand the selection in the future.
