  1. There have been definitely some challenges which have caused totally legitimate user frustration, but all in all, DDA has done a darn good job revising a classic for a new age, I'm certain they will get up stronger from these stumbles. :)
  2. There's a few rules to consider when buying from shops: If it has paypal in the name, 100% guaranteed the items are hacked. Also paying real money for items in this way isn't allowed anyway and is bannable anyway. If it's not a paypal shop, just inspect the items carefully. If you've never seen an item drop with the stats on it, but it doesn't look blatantly hacked, post about it in the item check thread and someone can help you determine if it's possible or not. And the old adage, if it looks too good to be true it probably is.
  3. In this case, it is possible they may be able to assist you, but it can't be stressed enough that any website or game accounts you care about you need to take care to lock them down sufficiently with good passwords not used elsewhere etc. etc. so on and so on, as you are ultimately responsible for anything that happens with your accounts, even if it's not you doing it- though this mainly applies to account sharing, which is why they might could maybe assist you in this case. (I am just a forum mod and i make no promises)
  4. With the removal of the 2b man alimit, using cubes as a currency isn't as necessary except for the most valuable things. So you should be able to just use mana for stepping stone stuff like trans.
  5. The DRM-free version of the game is way behind, as are the mac and linux versions on Steam, as the CDT was unable to do updates for those versions, but going back to day 1 is probably not possible.
  6. Hey lookie here, I get to do something. >.>
  7. You can't do either of these things. The different platforms are on different versions and are not compatible with each other.
  8. I tweaked the topic title- Though the content of the post was fine, the topic title was pretty rude.
  9. We probably won't be making any further changes to existing maps. Core death in the situations described is completely within your control to avoid.
  10. I don't think it's accurate to state that no development is required. Not all software written for X360 is certain to be fully compatible with Xbone since the hardware isn't exactly the same. It might not require much work in most cases, I'm just saying that's not a guarantee.
  11. This forum section is for issues with the forum itself, not the game(s). You can ask this in the Players Helping Players section.
  12. Hey you guys did good, it's been a while since I stopped by the lounge. XD
  13. There is zero development on console DD1 at this point. DDA, which is basically intended to be a reboot, is in the works but it isn't the exact same game and won't be compatible. We at the CDT are still working on another update, but we can only update the PC version.
  14. I wish I could help you, but I have no idea. I don't have nor ever played the ps3 version.
  15. Just FYI, what was Trendy is now Chromatic Games. A lot of old stickies haven't yet been updated//deleted/etc yet. But as a rule everything linked in that thread still applies. In the case you have a VAC ban there's 0% chance that anything can be done to help you. If you were banned for having extremely hacked items you're probably hosed as well. However, as you may be aware, Chromatic Games is working on a reboot of DD1 on Unreal Engine 4, and this will be a chance for a fresh start for you. Better measures against cheating are one of the many features you can expect, so bear that in mind :p In accordance with the post linked above, this thread will be locked.
  16. We and anyone else who might want to get involved do stand ready for any oppertunities to contribute to the game and to the community. :)
  17. The primary reason the mana is strewn around the map is so that when a player first visits the map they're required to essentially explore the map- Chests are typically placed near places you might consider defending (at least as a new player). This is in place primarily for the benefit of the person playing the map for the first time rather than the veteran who knows everything already. (It's worth noting in DD2 they recently removed this mechanic and just give mana directly to the player after each wave because of feedback + they didn't see it as valuable enough to retain). I don't care one way or the other in all actuality, I'm just making observations. (The new map I'm working on will only have one chest for mechanical reasons, but this isn't an endorsement of applying that to all maps, which by the way would result in an absolutely ginormous patch)
  18. Even when they weren't as good, I did like using them just because they were fun to use, crazy spammy action is entertaining. :D
  19. "Someone and 72 other users replied to a thread you track" *clicks* Oh, it's this thing. I guess that kinda gives away how often i've been checking the forums recently lol... I'm so bad.
  20. To my knowledge there is no special meaning of this. There is no ARG (alternate reality game), secret meaning, or anything for the number. We're adding accessories in each update so the number that exist is not fixed, and the other examples are coincidence.
  21. This forum seems to be full of unban requests, so in the interest of avoiding more, here is a quick reference. Please do not make threads asking to be unbanned. They will be locked. If you any further questions, the Players Helping Players forum section is the place to ask! How did I get banned?There are two kinds of bans: VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) bans and Trendynet/Ranked bans. VAC bans are the result of known cheat programs/hooks/other tools that can be used to mess with games. VAC bans are game specific and only restrict you from playing on VAC-enabled servers (All online games are VAC-enabled). The only tools explicitly authorized for use with the game are the game's editor (DDDK) and the steam workshop tool used to launch the editor and upload things to Steam Workshop. Be aware that VAC bans operate on a delay system, so you won't be easily able to determine exactly what triggered the ban. They do this to make it harder for hackers to develop ways around the system. Trendynet/Ranked bans are the result of various rule infractions while playing Ranked games. While some of these infractions can also result in a VAC ban as well, others may not. These infractions may include but are not limited to duplicatiing or modifying items, Running a paypal shop, buying anything from a paypal shop, or trading in or otherwise knowingly purchasing modified items.If you are VAC (steam) bannedThere is nothing that can be done. Valve will not lift VAC bans under any circumstances. You can still play (and cheat) to your hearts content in local play. If the Play Online button is grayed out, it may be due to Steam Community maintenance, so you can check if you are banned or not you by reviewing your steam profile. If you are Trendynet (Ranked) banned only You can visit this link and ask about your situation: Trendy Support However, usually, unban requests won't be honored. If you are certain you have reformed you can consider getting the game on a new Steam account (or use Family Share to play the game on another account), but if you are using tools or attempting to cheat or knowingly purchase hacked items you can expect to get banned again. So please don't do it.
