Red Stone Open Beta?

Lo-KiLo-Ki Virginia Beach, VAPosts: 98Member Uncommon

Red Stone Open Beta recently kicked off, I think, I'm registering right now to try the game out myself.  Go to www.playredstone.com to download the client and for more info.  I'll update this thread if everything goes smoothly.

EDIT: Don't know if this is old news or not but it's new to me and thought I'd share it with you all.

    Thanks for the update, but that was a waste of time.

     

    I couldn't find a single option to raise the screen res over 800x600.  Naturally, at that res, the graphics were HORRIBLE.  I can't even imagine any developer would even shoot for such a low res.  I've been a software dev for many years, and I can tell you, even the moronic argument, "it's beta", makes NO sense, because if you up the res later, you just have to re-write a lot of code, and modify and re-render a lot of graphics, so, it makes no sense to "start off" at a low (10 year old game's resolution).

    The screenshots looks better that the client I just downloaded.  IS there a way to increase the res?

    Anyway, right off the bad, the game didn't impress me at all, unless I stepped in a time machine and emerged 10 years ago.

    1. K2 are working on a patch for rez change

    Now the game, at first i wasnt really impressed, leveled up a bit and thats when the fun started, got into a group and we raided a dungeon which was loads of fun, the game reminds me of Diablo with a Mir/Lineage 1 story type :)

    Must admit when i first got on Redstone last night at first i thought what a load of balls this game seems to be but i still decided to give it a shot. Once you actually play for more than 30mins the game is quite addictive (and free) and although the graphics are old school, the game itself has some nice features and the partying is fun.

    Really like all games, it is what you make of it with the systems that are in place. The skill/cp system is cool though and it WILL make for some tactical PVP, you pick the wrong skill and you will end up nailing your own coffin basically (finally not pot based pvp).

    Its definatly worth a try atleast.

    Funny I noticed the same. At first glance you want to run away, play it for a bit and check out the skills and you think... wow... thats not bad. My biggest beef was the delay between hitting skills and them going off, but it seems a bit intentional.
