Development F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)1. How is the DBOR Server developed?
As already explained in a previous post, The server is developed by a method known as reverse engineering.
That means by proxy, that we're starting from scratch creating our own server, by learning how the DBO Client interacts with various actions by us.2. What exactly is being developed?
Our main focus is the DBOR server, which is written from scratch(Heavily stressing this point)
This is what the DBO client will connect to (so that you can play!). We will also develop various tools here and there to help working with the server and game content such as world, NPCs and quests, i.e creating new content for everyone to enjoy3. What language is being used in this development process?
Our goal will be to have everything that was released prior to DBO closing down.
That doesn't include anything created, but not officially released (i.e DWC, New Maps)5. Is this legal?
Check the previous thread for thisHow is this Legal (Click Me)6.Why does this process take so long?
We're aware that we started this project quite long ago, and people are getting hesitant and impatient for lack of a better word, An MMO server is a not a simple software to develop, and with the reverse engineering process added to the equation, it is not going to be something that can be finished in a couple of months. Some other MMOs server emulator projects out there took more than a year before the most basic things work, and many more years before it would open to the public.7.Are you still looking for more developers for the team?
No We are not currently taking on anyone new, as we're at quite a delicate position right now, and rather not have anyone new appear, However we might take on more people slowly as we progress. We have received many many applications and even though we might not have replied to each one of them, we have kept them in a list and we will go through them eventually.8. If you were taking applications what would i need to be proficient in?
This will be a common question regardless if we're recruiting or not, so this will be here so you have higher chance at getting noticed, if we do open enrollments.
Anything from C++, MMO development, 3D programming, and reverse engineering experience. atleast 5-6 months of DBO experience would be extremely beneficial to us and yourself too.9. Game Suggestions? Can you add This and That?
We would love to. Feature requests and game improvements suggestions are always welcomed. However, at this stage we want to focus on getting the game to work like how it was first.10. Why don't you post more updates and share more stuff?
When the DBOR project first started, a lot of people have joined the team with excitement. But since then, some of the members have shown that they were not really interested in the project. Some people had left without a trace, while some started trolling around and upsetting other members. Some had *borrowed*(Stole) the work of other members and released them to the public, without any acknowledgement or references. While sharing is caring, we do not think sharing what is not yours without asking is the right thing to do. Since then we have decided to be more tight with the information we got until the DBOR project has become more mature, and we will share information as we see fit.
We care greatly about the future of DBO and we want to make sure DBORevelations is a safe and secure experience for everyone.
So we'll share information when find that it's a good idea.11. Why should we believe you?
Well you don't have too, We're not keeping you here, if you don't want to believe in this project, so be it.
But if you do believe in us, thank you for your support, we're doing this for you, the players.12. Anything I can do to help?
Not right now, so sit tight and wait.
Enjoy the community, watch some old DBO videos.
