Looking for an mmorpg

15 March 2018 - 02:55 AM

Any suggestions on an mmorpg that I can play on my 2009 Mac Mini that'll run half-way decently on a dial-up modem?
I prefer a fantasy setting, space is kinda cold and devoid of trees.

I have tried Clan Lord, Arindal, and Runescape.

Someone please point me in the right direction.

thank you

Casual Play as Therapy

14 January 2018 - 04:17 PM

One of the recurring themes I read about on these forums is about casual play in an mmorpg.

I agree.

Sure, we want action, adventure, the excitement of discovery, a sense of challenge, a feeling of accomplishment. But more importantly, we want… no need… a game to fire-up to escape the madness of our world, a place where we can relax and just go fishing, or wander around with no particular destination in mind (not all who wander are lost), just sit and chat with friends, or be alone with naught but our thoughts.

We need an mmorpg that provides not only the best play experience, but one that also equally addresses our emotional needs. We need places that are artistically as beautiful as possible, with the sound of a gentle wind and birdsong, and safe from threat. Places we can go to share with friends, or relax alone.

Many of us are getting a bit long in the tooth and want to slow down and actually enjoy the view, or stop and smell the flowers, or (in my case) hug a few trees.

Life can be brutal and short. Some of us have seen that, some of us experienced that, we all could use healing because of it.

An mmorpg that acknowledges and makes a sensitive effort to gently address this can go a long way to healing the invisible hurts of this sometimes cruel reality.

Tag line didn't update

I changed my forum tag line and clicked the Update button. My Profile shows the change, but it still uses the old tag line even when creating a new thread. :cool:

Most missed hardware feature

10 January 2018 - 08:48 PM

I really miss the old "Power On/Off" button that used to be on Apple's keyboard.

With the bigger screen displays, you have to push em' back to take in the whole image. That means the computer sits farther back, which means you gotta get up and turn the computer and feel around for the Power button.

Wouldn't it be nice if Apple revived a discontinued but still useful feature?

What discontinued feature do you miss?

Wishing everyone a most joyous Christmas holiday with family and friends, and a Happy New Mac Year (yes, even you Mr. Ballmer).

May all your wildest dreams come true!
