If there wasn't an observer mode then I wouldn't see trials with ice shields or have someone listen on my conversation then come out of nowhere saying "I heard what you said of (blank) what is this (blank) you speak of" Usualy something about items. I have been scared into using pm's instead.

We could display some icon showing that someone is near, like on classic servers. There is a script variable "ghostsnear" for that.

Those in observer mode shouldn't see custom chat systems scripted via WNPCs (I dunno if observer mode can see gani scripts or not but they still suck regardless). All the more reason to make one (or use ChatBar++).

Observer mode should be cut off from everything and a message that comes up saying if they want to see more then too purchase a gold account for said server.

And can we take away the numbered accounts. They are extremely annoying.

Could you fix them on zone so they can't come back into a deathmatch rond after they go into ghostmode. Ghostisnear would be nice. Maybe a ghost will appear into normal world in 3,2,1.

Is there any type of flag a player receives when they're observer mode? That way I can disable players being able to PK them while they're just standing there waiting to come out of observer mode.

It'd be great if there was, good idea.

Players disappear for scripting when they are in observer mode. May be I can add an event when the player switches from observer mode to normal mode again (onSwitchObserverToPlayer) and add a time variable when the player switched to normal mode (player.lastobservermodetime)

Players using Observer mode on my server are getting messed up. Our GUI apparently covers half of their screen while some of the vital flags and weapons aren't being added to the player. X_x

Instead of Observer mode, we should take the KISS approach: Keep It Simple Stupid. Trial players would have half a month of saved free play that includes Gold Servers, Classic Servers and Hosted Servers. This way, they can find which kind of server they like the best, test it out for a reasonable amount of time then finally be pulled back out of the game and asked if they would like to sign-up for a full account. No Observer Mode. No Ghost Mode. Just a genuine, full-bodied Graal experience. And if/when they sign-up for their desired subscription, they get to continue where they left off when they were in trial mode.

Any takers? Eh? Eh?

If the trial says no, its no loss to anyone (except for the person being a customer.) The player isn't taking up any resource or anything. We can't really help losing potential players if they don't like the actual gameplay; but gameplay is what will make more people join.

Thats true, but then they would have to start over after every time they make a new account.

I think he should just eliminate observer mode altogether. We ran into a problem on Graal Kingdoms with them. They tend to try to scam people. At least when they were real trials with no 5 hour gold time we knew what we were dealing with.
