Introducing Conquer Origins | Classic Experience

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Conquer Origins was brought to existence as a way to replicate the prime days of the popular and beloved multiplayer game Conquer Online. Throughout the years, many things have changed in the game, shifting it completely from its essence what from what veterans remember it for. Our goal at Conquer Origins is to provide a small niche of people with the opportunity to relive those days once again, meeting new people whom they may one day call friends and create a few more memories of the game to remember.

The main focus we have is to please our community and make sure that everyone who join us is having a great time. Therefore, feedback is something extremely valued by us and it's something we're consistenly asking from our community as it is the only way for us to understand everyone's needs and what direction the server should take.

Our history
We're certain most people have either heard or played our very first server: Shannara. It has run for 3+ years, was the most populated classic server for almost 2 years and has given us both the experience and the motivation to run a server and manage communities. Last summer, the community that was playing at the time requested us to work on a new server with lower rates, without some of the custom content we had at Shannara and with some improvements in terms of quality of life (QoL) gameplay, amongst many other things. For nearly a year we restructured most of the Shannara source (that already had 3+ years of work in it) and tried to squeeze out every single bug we could find. We believe Shannara has put out tons of groundbreaking and unique content and with Origins we expect not only to keep that legacy but make it even better.

What can you expect?

  • Level 130 as the maximum level you can achieve
  • All official monsters and default spawns locations
  • Maximum composition level being the original +9
  • All official quests and events there were in the game
  • Identical calculations for Experience, Damage, etc.
  • Identical algorithms for all sort of spells (Line, Fan, Collide, etc.)
  • Original classes (Archer, Warrior, Trojan, Water, Fire)
  • Original composition system

What have we improved?

  • Possibility to run the game at Fullscreen and custom resolutions
  • Increased view/jump range
  • Set custom FPS limit according to your needs
  • Modern Quality of Life features to enhance the player experience
  • Custom power-leveling matching system
  • Custom Anticheat to prevent players from using hacks/cheats
  • Implemented support for custom cosmetics (weapon skins)
  • Custom launcher that lets you customize your game client

Our rates
When Conquer Origins was launched, we knew there were going to be bugs and lots of balancing to be done due to the fact we had restructured most of the source. Therefore, we made the decision to launch the server with really low rates without any multipliers meaning they were identical to the official rates. We have ran the server like that for a few months now and only recently we've significantly buffed the rates which will allow new players to easily catch up with the ones who've been testing and helping improve the server. Since rates may suffer some changes from time to time or due to special events, we'll be leaving an URL at the end of the thread where you'll be able to check the current rates at all times.

Custom Content
Ever since the release of Origins we have been putting out custom content that is improving the gameplay of our community. I'll be leaving some screenshots of features that include but are not limited to: user-friendly voting system that will remind you when you can vote again, quest dialog where you can check your available quests, advanced mining and hunting options for VIP players, changelog that will let you check all the new and previous changes, ground items displaying the item quality and composition and much more.

      I got a bit bored this evening while waiting for a download, and so I got Conquer Online working on a spare Linux machine. If playing a dead game on an operating system it wasn't meant for sounds right up your ally, maybe your laptop can't support Windows 10 or something for the latest security updates, then start by installing Ubuntu Desktop 18.04. Once you're up and running, update your system. Once rebooted after updating, install Wine and PlayOnLinux from the Ubuntu Software app. Then, open PlayOnLinux and do the following:
      Click "Install" and then select "Install a non-listed program". Select "Install a program in a new virtual drive". As the name of the instance, call it "conquer". For pre-installation steps, select "Configure Wine" and "Install some libraries". Select a 32-bit Windows installation. Once the Configure Wine window opens, select "Windows XP" as the Windows Version. Click Ok and select the following libraries to install on the next screen:

      POL_Install_crypt32
      POL_Install_d3dx9
      POL_Install_dinput8
      POL_Install_dsound
      POL_Install_dxdiag
      POL_Install_flashplayer
      POL_Install_flashplayer_ActiveX
      POL_Install_ie6
      POL_Install_msvc80
      POL_Install_msvc90
      POL_Install_VideoDriver
        Wait for everything to download and install, pressing next here and there. Eventually, you'll be asked for an executable to run. Copy the client onto the conquer virtual drive (shortcut in your home folder). Select "Browse" for an executable to run (or skip). Once ran, you'll be asked to create a shortcut. Select "conquer.exe" from browse. After adding the shortcut, select "I don't want to make another shortcut". Select "Conquer" from the main menu and click on "Configure". Add "blacknull" as an argument under General. Set the video memory size to a larger MB size under Display. Tada, you can now run Conquer Online on Linux (I think, I didn't actually try logging into a server).
      PS: If you get a page fault exception, update your video drivers.

      Introduction
      Comet is a Conquer Online server project containing an account server and game server. The account server authenticates players, while the game server services players in the game world. This simple two-server architecture acts as a good introduction into server programming and networking. The server is interoperable with the Conquer Online game client, patch 5017 (not provided by this project).
      Discussion
      This project was initially created for an interview as a 3-week programming project. Now, it's a base source that I'm opening up to the community. Feel free to add to it and submit push requests. I'm mostly active on my GitLab account, but feel free to hit me up on Discord or Cooldown if I don't get to things soon enough.
