Title: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: tangar on September 23, 2015, 08:36:46 PM
TomeNet (http://www.tomenet.eu/) — online multiplayer roguelike or just MMORPG-rogulike game.

Its wild mix of oldschool singleplayer ultrahardcore roguelike and modern MMORPG setting. So its the very best place to enjoy roguelike with a friends (better, then World of Warcraft, I can say).

Roguelike features:
- Random levels generation (btw TomeNet has a lot of advanced technologies for rogulike games - Day/night changes, four seasons, weather, sound and music, powerful macro system & etc)
- Permadeath (but also you could also play "everlasting" character if you wish)
- Huge amount of game actions (kick, throw, search, dig & etc)
- Freedom. Not linear walkthrough of the game. There is even no walkthrough - gameplay is almost endless!
- Hack’n’Slash, great amount of items, monsters.. and other roguelike features. HUGE amounts of situations. For example, at my first day in-game I weared cursed ring of teleportation and several kind players gathered to help me to remove it. It was awesome adventure  :lol: I even got that on video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc0PUsyu0-Y), but its in Russian.

MMORPG features:
- real-time. Don't worry - time passes slower on deeper levels keeping the real-time experience at an optimum.
- PvE in group. Fight with your friends back to back! If you are solo player (as me) its very challenging (hard, but possible) to go alone in the dark.
- PvP - dueling and even PK (full-loot) and stealing! If you don't like PvP - you are not forced to do it. You have to create special character for PvP mode :)
- Economy. Trade, barter, create your own shop or even shop empire!
- Communication. Find friends there! Build your own house or even create village with your friends!
- ...and much, MUCH more

Btw I'm live streaming TomeNet everyday, but I can't post new videos there (too lazy :P ). Anyway I wanna share this epic moment (remember that I'm permadeath hehe):
Ancient Black Dragon vs 31 rogue. I rewinded to certain moment my loong stream:

I've decided to start a archer. Vampire. I think I'll be first archer vampire ever (cause its extreamly hard to feed if you kill everything from the distance).

Also archer has _very_ dangerous gameplay - you cant go melee, needs a lot of blinking and kiting.

But I though my first adventure would be easy... I've just created new character - what could happen to me? I was mistaken. Very.

TomeNet is pretty good. There is a big update comming with revamp of magic system. We got 10-15 players online; a lot of shops around where you could buy items from another players :) 2000+ characters at server total (that doesn't counts old characters - they are deleted after 180 days of inactivity).

TomeNet has huge potential as the only actively developed MMO-roguelike nowadays. Come and check it by yourself! %)

I used to play about ten years ago. Back then, the devs were obsessed with suppressing trade/commerce between players. Sounds like they've loosened up.

Personally, I think the game has (or had) serious playability problems. Scumming is pretty much the central feature of high level play, whether it's scumming packs of monsters, scumming for forms on mimics, scumming black markets for essential supplies, etc. Many mechanics are incredibly tedious, especially identification. Even with auto-id scroll reading, it takes a ridiculous amount of dicking around picking up and dropping hundreds of items with the only relief coming from rare randarts and area effect id available only at a high cost in skill points for most characters or not at all. You read that right: One of the primary benefits of playing mages is avoiding a ridiculous interface screw. There are essentially no gameplay ramifications to the time wasted on more or less required identification, it's purely tedium. And that's if you assume that it's important to even have identification as a part of the game, which it isn't.

The wilderness part of the game is superficially interesting sounding, but in fact adds nothing to the game but time spent traveling. On the main server back then, the walk from Bree to Gondolin took about 15 minutes of shift-move, but you couldn't do it automatically, you had to babysit your character as bushes, kobolds, and map sector boundaries interrupt your travel (this was literally all that could be expected to happen, it was never an epic adventure). Maybe the wilderness has been regenerated since then. Ultimately, due to weird dungeon rules relating to minimum level requirements, force-down and no-recall rules that varied from dungeon to dungeon, there were only a few dungeons worth visiting if you're interested in winning, in spite of the existence of like 30 of them. This meant that almost none of this theoretically large gameworld was actually used by players.

The skill system at the time was very tight with not nearly as many interesting possibilities as you would guess as a beginning player. Sounds like this has changed a little with "Maiar" or whatever they're called. There are many skills that are almost if not completely useless and serve as little more than a failure mode for new players. The shaman class was pretty good in terms of offering a variety of strong builds, but otherwise...

Add to that crazy rules about artifacts where characters who are never played and never win end up with all of the artifacts and account expiration rules which were apparently the devs' best idea about how to address that situation (!), line of sight that extends well past the top and bottom of your unresizable view window in a realtime game where many monsters spawn awake and can kill you with a single breath attack, and you've got a thoroughly broken game.

Very interesting opinion. But a bit old-fashioned - a lot of staff already fixed :) But also you said some staff with which I could agree - for example I've already critisized identification system at TomeNets' forum (though I get used for it and do it automatically).

BUT again..... There is no any another MMO-roguelike game. Its not JUST multiplayer roguelike. Its full scale MMO with economy system, with PvP, housing and lot of communication options. PvE of course! And there is a lot of options for PvE - IDDC with party its different universe of gameplay.

Game is in active development, so I belive that more problems would be somehow solved soon (like ID). And I wanna repeat, that its seems some staff already was fixed since your last login. You could teleport in a Wilderness with recall scolls, so no more boring travels. You need only to discover zone one time, thats it - after you could teleport there with a cheap magic scroll. I didnt see any scumming and didnt used it (I'm lvl 36, may be at super high lvl there is some..). And about deaths from 1 blow - if you have ESP and you would see danger before it kills you.

Skill system is quite perfect imho, as an true-arts systems (they expire in 30 days).. So yes ,I could agree in some points, but 80% about what you said is a bit rusty :) Try game again :)

the only actively developed MMO-roguelike nowadays.

Incorrect. Rogue Element RPG is in active development. Big differences between Rogue Element RPG and TomeNet:

* Fully turn based gameplay (and there is no need to wait for other players)

* Multi-lingual (English and Japanese are supported right now)

* 3d client (I have put development on hold for this as my laptop is so old and I can not afford something newer to improve the graphics)


There is one server online in the US and I can easily expand to have more servers.

Is it ready for gameplay? Almost - I still have to arrange at least one quest for the game and improve the monster AI a little more.

I probably identified over 100k items playing tomenet. I never got used to what an obnoxious waste of time it is. I only viewed it as the price of doing business. It's a high price and totally unnecessary. As you say, it's "the only MMO roguelike" with a reasonable level of player activity. That's the best, probably the only, reason to play it.

Yes, wilderness recall existed then too. Having to walk every character to gondolin was an insane waste of time that added nothing to the game, even if you only do it once per character. About one shot off screen kills, I disagree. It's a real time game and in order to see everything in your LoS, you have to use the 'L' command to move your view around. While about 99% of the time you can go down stairs and safely accomplish this look dance (another totally bizarre interface screw that no other game I've seen can rival) the fact is that you visit hundreds of levels. For example, if you get a blade pit off-screen but in LoS, they spawn awake and kill walls while you're L'ing around. If you don't happen to check their direction first, their breath will take you down before you even know what happened.

They will never change ID. Those guys had totally archaic ideas about what a roguelike game should be back then, basically thought tedium is an essential part of the genre, and the lack of change in 10 years makes me pretty sure they're in about the same place now.

I logged in about 3 years ago, I think. Skills looked about the same as ever. You should build some endgame characters. You're still at the stage where you don't see the limitations of the skills system, imo. When you've gotten some wins and you pay attention to what other people who win regularly do, you start to see there's pretty much just one kind of mage, etc.

Great! I'll be very interested to try it when its done. But the most interesting differences VS another roguelike game has to be in gameplay, not in "Multi-lingual" feature ;)

So for now its still true - the only MMO-roguelike to play RIGHT now (not in development; there are a lot of developments going around) - TomeNet.

As you say, it's "the only MMO roguelike" with a reasonable level of player activity. That's the best, probably the only, reason to play it.

Can't agree with you. As I mentioned before - its full scale MMO with huge world, group PvE, economy system, PvP, housing and lot of communication options. There is NO another playable MMO-roguelike with such features yet. Thats why its unique and interesting.

Yes, wilderness recall existed then too. Having to walk every character to gondolin was an insane waste of time that added nothing to the game, even if you only do it once per character.

I dont feel any problem to go Gondolin once at wilderness. Its quite fun for me to have an adventure and travel around. Some places at wilderness has strong monsters with decent loot. So its not boring at all, even by the way to Gondo you could meet quite deadly "water hounds", so its quite fun for me (all humans ar not the same :) )

About one shot off screen kills, I disagree. It's a real time game and in order to see everything in your LoS, you have to use the 'L' command to move your view around.
 

I agree with it, its not so comfortable. But it playable :)

They will never change ID. Those guys had totally archaic ideas about what a roguelike game should be back then, basically thought tedium is an essential part of the genre, and the lack of change in 10 years makes me pretty sure they're in about the same place now.

This game become better place at my eyes. At that spring was big update. Now another one. May be you just played when this game devs had hard times?

I logged in about 3 years ago, I think. Skills looked about the same as ever. You should build some endgame characters. You're still at the stage where you don't see the limitations of the skills system, imo. When you've gotten some wins and you pay attention to what other people who win regularly do, you start to see there's pretty much just one kind of mage, etc.

Its very long way for the win if you play permadeath char. And I'm in a long way there. I dont wish to play NE character - may be because of it I enjoy the game? :) May be game as everlasting character is boring and full of scamming - don't know. I didnt try it and I wouldn't ;) Traditional rogulike gamestyle with permadeath making TomeNet endless and perfect experience. Its what I feel about this game.

Spent any time with PWMangband tangar?  It isn't quite the exact same style as TomeNet, but I know for a fact PowerWyrm has worked hard on putting out many, many updates in the past few years---you just might find some enjoyable times with it, though there's more to learn about the game in the forum section for it (also some Beta 2015 updates I think...) once the, apparent, explosion of the Mangband forum servers is fixed:

It's amazing to me the level of abuse people are willing to endure to play a multiplayer roguelike -- most of all amazed at how long I endured it myself back then. This is a badly under-served niche in the genre, as you can see by hanging around on the servers and watching hundreds of people come in, give it a try for a week or two and leave disappointed or angry.

getter77, I didnt try PWMangband yet. To start play any online game you need website and stable game server 24/7. If game doesn't have this - very rare gamer would like to check it. With all respect to PowerWyrm and another developers.

mushroom patch, not much people playing roguelike games nowadays. And its quite often that people who plays roguelikes (because of nostalgie, for example) not really ready to change one game to another. I don't know where did you get information about "hundreds of people come in". My eyes showing me a few tens, who tried this game in last six months. Some of them leave because of game complexity, some just don't like roguelike style. Some stays. Like in other online games. Roguelikes not really popular atm, sad but true.

And I'm going down to Barrow-Downs :)

It is not true that few people play roguelikes nowadays. DCSS webtiles, for example, has thousands of active players and a significant spectating community. If tomenet were a worthier addition to the genre, I suspect it would be nearly as popular.

re: where I get my information, I used to hang out on tomenet a hell of a lot scumming shops and people watching. Back then you'd see about 100 people come and go in six months, I'd say. That estimate might be a bit high. There were probably 40 or so regulars who you'd see at least once or twice a year, if only to rotate characters (i.e. avoid the devs' silly expiration rules). The devs claimed they cleared out several hundred old accounts at one point. Gotta save that disk space!

But look - what is main difference between DCSS, ADoM, or - nowadays - Cogmind (I was really surprised how many people tested it in tournament!) and TOMENet? Graphics, nice tiles, mouse support, user-friendliness. Other roguelikes - these with more 'retro' spirit - isn't very popular. You can say - 'but DCSS and ADoM are major roguelikes, players just love it'. Angband is actually more classic and he has noticeably smaller community.

A miscommunication:  The website and server are, IIRC, just fine right now for PWM itself---the only thing that is "down" is the sub-forum/topic that was on the classic Mangband site.   I could be mistaken though, easiest is just to shoot PowerWyrm a message to see the cutting edge of info.   :D

You can say - 'but DCSS and ADoM are major roguelikes, players just love it'. Angband is actually more classic and he has noticeably smaller community.

Ya, I'm going to have to go ahead and kinda disagree with you there. The reason angband is unpopular is that it has zero online infrastructure, updates infrequently with changes that completely fail to address any of the game's core issues (it's damn hard to get anyone to even acknowledge the issues), and it's objectively inferior to e.g. nethack, DCSS, and ADoM. Tomenet has the same problems, except the first and last points are a bit less acute, due to the multiplayer aspect. It's an issue of lack of user retention and bad word of mouth.

DCSS got its start as a public telnet community and online multiuser remains its lifeblood, even if the focus has shifted toward webtiles (a system with its basis in the same public server infrastructure). It's a work in progress with nontrivial changes and tweaks coming every couple weeks. You don't need graphics and all of that garbage to engage the hardcore roguelike audience (and make no mistake, that's the DCSS crowd -- math/physics/engineering grad students and former grad students, etc.), but you do need something with substance. This is where angband and tomenet fail.

I've created addon for TomeNet's Windows client. Addon solves "alt" problem, removes borders of windows and cropping duplicated stroke. So its possible to play "one window", full-screen-like mode:

Patch notes: http://www.tomenet.eu/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7&p=3520#p3520 (http://www.tomenet.eu/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7&p=3520#p3520)

Welcome to 4.7.0 :) Actually its biggest update for several last years!

Rebalance, new gameplay features, new display options, a lot of UI improvements... fixed all kind of errors and bugs. New shadow magic and.. spirit occult magic! Wanna try to be shadow rogue and be able to teleport behind enemies and use powerful dark magic to curse and demolish your enemies to dust? Or maybe shadow priest? What about occult shaman? A lot of new stuff :)

Also there are rumours about new class - Dark Knight... %) Game developing going day and night! Check it out!

Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: mushroom patch on October 10, 2016, 05:29:09 PM
Kind of amazed looking at this list. Many of these things were issues people complained about ten years ago, others like magic spells "projecting" to affect allies in a multiplayer game without gimping your character by wasting skill points on a dedicated school of useless spells were obvious then too. I'm amazed those guys still work on this game.
Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: getter77 on October 10, 2016, 11:22:25 PM
Just think of the possibilities if this can jumpstart some real momentum for them from casting off these old chains to knock out even so much as another couple release updates on this gigantic scale.

The only other thing I can think of right now on the stupidly Pie in the Sky hopes would be that sort of "offline/recursive mode" that PWMangband(who also has a sizable update brewing even if only just compared to this crazy thing) somehow bludgeoned together an update or so back to overcome the enduring Achilles' Heel of any MMO when it comes to multiplayer/server reliance hovering with menace to fit such a Sword of Damocles.   This has a real chance of one day recapturing the roving nomadic hordes of vanilla ToMe folks from the v2.x era and then some if they keep at it and chase polish and accessibility.
Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: mushroom patch on October 11, 2016, 02:21:59 PM
PWMangband at least has someone with a reasonable design sensibility behind it, though I don't hold a lot of hope out for it either. Ultimately, the angband line is stuck in the 90s and they're never going to catch up.
Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: getter77 on October 11, 2016, 04:37:25 PM
Eh, PWM is often eating after the cutting edge of Angband proper(a good thing!), so growth in that sense is guaranteed as they square away more on a Modern Angband that feels less constrained by the reins of the past that are ill-fitting at this junction.  That and the QT and NPP side of things marching on as they do as another baseline of sorts.   If the Larn camp can get feisty again, then there's surely hope for Moria/Angband to breakout---doubly so if we hit some kind of apocalyptic harbinger and Omega somehow roars to life anew as one of the last of the old guard alongside Valhalla and such.

TomeNET has been chasing a carrot of their own devising for years now though, so time'll tell what all they draw from in terms of Roguelike sensibilities and things to exploit from the MMO side of things---one giant release at a time and they'll definitely get Somewhere, which is always worth lauding~
Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: tangar on October 12, 2016, 08:27:36 PM
Very interesting discussion, guys :) From my point of view - there aren't online games (=MMORPGs) which got even a half of richness of gameplay as TomeNET has right now. And its not the end. Devs got a lot of plans - quest system, for example. Its almost ready btw, be in touch for updates... %)

So its surely very unique and interesting project.. Its extreamely hard game - thats why its not so popular as it has to be... But in time everything would change, I'm sure!

Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: getter77 on October 12, 2016, 10:36:56 PM
It would probably be a good idea for a Roadmap page to be added to the main TomeNET website along the top with the rest---people are more likely to try/start and come back after absence if there is a sign of plans in motion that can be discussed while seeing it all fall into place.   Did you ever spend any time with Portralis tangar, both before the now stalled rewrite and after?  It was strong on the quest/narrative front compared to almost all of the Angband/Moria descendants.

The U/I, aesthetics, ease of control/use updates, sound/music improvements, an "offline mode" as I mention above for crisis situations where online servers can't/won't work or preference, a strong focus on the early game foundations---I am sure all of these things can continue to improve and grow the player base.   The most important first step, to not become WoW or UO or other such projects is already taken care of---which is huge because that tends to be what dooms other projects to have nowhere near this lifespan or personality needed to carve out their own legend and legacy.   8)
Title: Re: TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game
Post by: tangar on October 13, 2016, 08:09:19 PM
Yep, I'm too waiting for roadmap for centuries :) even wrote about it at forum http://www.tomenet.eu/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=708&p=2007&hilit=roadmap#p2007

I suppose devs got their 'closed' system where they work at the game. Maybe it would be open one day :)

Anyway - devs online everyday and anyone could ask them something or give an advice/suggestion (/rfe command). I didn't see so much joint work with community in other games.. A lot of stuff which players suggested was implemented in last update (I suppose even ~30% of my personal suggesions was approved and its _a lot_). So I like devs work and their communication with a players is very unique and positive.

I didn't play Portralis yet and much more roguelikes awaits... But thanks for information, would check it up %)

Heh, when you do get to it, remember to try both* versions---though it is hard to say exactly where Classic Portralis reached the highest point before things started to/went out of control.   :P   I think all of them are still up in the archives:

http://variaz.proboards.com/

Actually, there are some very good design discussions as far as class designs/powers/exotics stretching quite a distance back---wouldn't be surprised if a fair few could be adapted, if not improved even, for TomeNET in the future since I think most of the complexity is already there at the foundations.

I've published new version of tileset for TomeNET:
 
Version 1.4 - Redraw of all floor tiles & updated other monsters/objects. Also we got 2 additional tiles cause of staircase duplication. Now we got new Tier '0' for dangerous middle-lvl demons and... surprise in Bree :) Aaaand fixed a bug - now staircases displayed correctly at the map (shift+m).

A bit outdated screenshot (last version got new granite walls), but shows general idea of tileset :)

I suppose tileset very close to release, so I'll start working at different sizes soon.

Past stream - TomeNET THE SHADOW OF DOL GULDUR - was fatal:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fA75kkeGSa8

Reasons:
1) Didn't know max. deep of dungeon ---> didn't know that I facing final boss. Though it's Saruman
2) Didn't know that Shadow could see through rogues 'cloaking'
3) Didn't know it's possible to summon out of corner :E~~
4) Had quite small speed? (not sure)
5) Missed teleport key (pushed healing instead)
6) Didn't play for a while and made all above mistakes
7) Most important: was annoyed by @#$% troll in my stream chat. Mood was ruined and I made mistakes. From now on I read only in-game chat while playing TomeNET.

Please make your suggestions, comments on what happened

[...]There is no any another MMO-roguelike game[...]
You seem to forget that TomeNET is based on PernMAngband--multiplayer PernAngband--itself basd on MAngband, which has other forks the last few years besides TomeNET (PWMAngband?)

There are/were also three multiplayer NetHacks: InterHack (discontinued, but code is still out there,) and two named HackNet, one of which may not work on current-day computers (without running 32-bit programs,) and the other that just keeps asking you to enter character name.  But, InterHack worked, just didn't have many people running servers.

Currently there are 3 truly online roguelike games:

1) TomeNET (http://tomenet.eu)
2) mAngband ( http://mangband.org )
3) PWMAngband ( http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr ).

Details:
- PernMAngband it was actually TomeNET, which was renamed cause copyright Pern issues.
- TomeNET is the most popular online roguelike; but also there are two more online roguelike games - MAngband (was 1st online roguelike ever) and PWMAngband (got some pretty revolutionary stuff). I like this games, but it's hard to call them 'MMO-roguelike', as I call TomeNET. They are more 'multiplayer roguelikes'... TomeNET got ~1.5k accounts, pretty big population which come and go, so it's surely could be called MMO game.
- There are a lot of old rumours about NetHack Online (InterHack, HackNet).. I tried hard to be able to play Nethack online, but didn't get success; it seems all devs abandoned their work long time ago, clients doesn't work.

Also some online games with strong roguelike elements:
1) Tibia
2) Mystera Legacy
3) RPG MO
4) RotMG (not too roguelikish, but interesting)

List @ my tavern (http://mmoforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=35&p=696) - would be updated.
