Ruining It For Everyone Else Since 2004

>The community grows more and more tired.

As time moves forward, open source has not been released yet. Fans of Uru await a Cyan sanctioned Uru and become more and more tired as Cyan’s silence on the subject continues.

Meanwhile, most of us know that Cyan is working on another game called MagiQuest Online. This allows Cyan to get some money back into their company. And I’m happy that they have been given this opportunity.

I can’t find the pictures for magiquest that were over at Uru Obsession. But it looked like it will be running on Uru technology (I would guess MOUL since that was the most current out of all the versions), and if correct that would compromise the entire release of Open Source Uru for obvious reasons.

We have people who are quietly going away, people who are patiently waiting, and we have people who are upset that Cyan hasn’t gotten back to them about Uru as promised. I can’t believe I’m the one that has to say this, but I have to wonder if some of these people love Cyan as much as they claim. If they did I would think they would have a better understanding of what Cyan has to do to survive right now as a company. Currently it’s either MagiQuest or Open Source Uru. The one that offers the most money usually wins. And the fact of the matter is that Cyan can’t make money on Uru anymore.

Some seem to believe that Open Source Uru and MagiQuest Online can co exist. Yet I remember when people fought over UU’s death. Some said it could co exist as a whole other entity compared to Uru Live, and others thought UU should be banished to protect MOUL and Cyan. While some of that may remain true, I’m starting to wonder if that was even the case. I’m thinking that some of these people don’t care what happens to Cyan. They just want Cyan to run Uru and everything will be happy for them.

Even though Cyan has made some choices that I never agreed with, I wouldn’t want to see the company die. And if it means making MagiQuest. Then more power to them.

I agree. From the pictures I saw, I would say that Magiquest is built on MOUL's bones.Releasing the source code for MOUL would be releasing a road map on how to hack MagiQuest. I doubt the MagiQuest people would be happy about that.Realistically it would be a miracle if the MagiQuest people agreed to allow open source Uru be released.

Yep folks need to wake up, a Cyan run URU isn't going to happen. The small obstacles to overcome should have been done by now even with low resources. The reasons for not letting it out are pretty clear, but Cyan can't say this. They risk losing followers for the new product.

Déjà vu, part #4… or is it #5 now…"already seen"; also called paramnesia, from Greek παρα "para," "near, against, contrary to" + μνήμη "mnēmē," "memory") or promnesia, is the experience of feeling sure that one has witnessed or experienced a new situation previously (an individual feels as though an event has already happened or has happened in the recent past), although the exact circumstances of the previous encounter are uncertain. The term was coined by a French psychic researcher, Émile Boirac (1851–1917) in his book L'Avenir des sciences psychiques ("The Future of Psychic Sciences"), which expanded upon an essay he… Read more »

Well said, Tomala! I can't disagree with even a word of that.

Whenever Cyan becomes silent .. let's think death of Uru Live / Prologue .. and Uru Live part deux .. then the picture is NEVER lookin' good for whatever it is.If they've gone silent regarding the release of Uru Open Source .. consider it dead.Their reasons may be solid in keeping alive .. I have NO quarrel with that .. it's just .. be honest .. tell the truth to the fans who have had such hope and faith in an open source Uru .. and in Cyan as an entity .. and move forward from that .. rather then… Read more »
