they should make graal on a CD and sell it in stores like EB, Software ETC., and all those other cool places too...It could bring in a lot of extra profits (on setup you can choose trial or p2p installation and get extra benefits for installing p2p)

Why would you want millions more people just to cause MILLIONS more lag?

I don't see the need to put a game, no bigger than 10MB, on a CD.

Or they could have an online play and an AUCTUAL RPG GAME!
Kinda like Habbo where there is a couple of main servers and then mini games where there is CS and such with a player limit!

If you ever did sell Graal on CD, you could simply bundle a p2p account with it. :D

Maybe a 3 month one, heh. :)

I don't see a reason to distribute a small file like Graal on CD. I really don't.

Yes you could bundle it with an activation # or so where they can redeem a free month account + they are paying for the game/account and you make money just from the stores buying it from you.

Ever hear of EVERY POPULAR ONLINE ONLY GAME? Example: Ultima Online, Everquest, Asheron's Call, etc etc.

But I dont think Graal is as good as those games, but its not even as bad as some i play :p Id give it a 6/10.

On ultima you just find some free servers to play on :o they prabably all cheat but aw well it's free what do you expect.

wouldn't know really, I just don't think the current servers can handle too many people, graal is more of a community rather than a masive multiplayer game.

so what you're saying is that graal has some habbo elements and Online gaming elements in it?

Graal has been around longer than habbo, and graal is a totaly different engin and system, games feed of each other, ideas and plots.

I think there should be Graal trading cards in stores, and each one contains a fragment of the executable printed in binary code on the back. The objective is to collect all the cards and then key in the code to a computer to construct Graal itself.

I think it'd sell well. I mean, just imagine the playground trading potential!

"Do you have sector 34b?"

"Yeah, I'll swap for 291a!"

Pokemon wouldn't stand a chance.

"I have the original newbie McDohl outfit card!"

"He only has 3 hearts and a level 1 sword and he is solid dark blue and he looks stoopid...I have the second version McDohl card! He looks like a white saint!"

"All children around: GHEY!"

you know what? seriously, i think that is not such a bad idea at all.
we can make the cards feature all the current graal players

O.o

The idea of trading cards in general is a reasonable one, but I doubt they'd ever make it to actual shops in the real world.

Graal2002 is made to support more players,
huge islands, you can build your own houses and
ships and forests, so with more players it can expand
on it's own. And if it's getting too small then a
new island can be added.

well lets face it, the "graphics" on graal compared to other games right now isnt really, well, "graphics". would you want to buy a RPG game with good gfx and awesome spells etc and it had free servers. or would you want to buy some little almostcartoon rpg game that doesnt have much for weapons and such, and have to pay to play it? like no offense, graal rocks and all, but they have to advance more. like RGO. thats my thoughts.

Yes, but those are all downloadable via the servers.

The actual files that run Graal are no bigger than 10 MB though.

I wanna know why my computer has more problems running Graal (ie computer lag and Graphic Card problems) when I can run Diablo II and Ultima Online both internet AND computer lag free?

I know they can afford more servers and way better quality ones, but why does graal lag my cpu when I can run Diablo II and UO just fine...?

Nah, basically make the CD contain the normal executable, and a 630MB interview with Unixmad and Stefan. People would then run to the stores and buy it! ;P
