ZEALOTRY Users: Critical Notice on Continued Use

Edit: Our new HTML5 client (Orchil) is now open for beta testing in The Eternal City. Feel free to try give it a whirl at http://test.skotos.net/orchil/

Edit: We have made great strides toward a new HTML5 client, which should offer a replacement to Zealotry. We're hoping to release that in the very near future, but in the meantime, using Pale Moon remains the best method for ensuring there is zero interruption to your game playing during the transition.

As of November 14, Mozilla will be auto-updating all copies of Mozilla Firefox to Mozilla 57, a new edition of their browser that will disable all legacy add-ons. This will probably include the majority of the plug-ins that you use on Mozilla, including the Skotos Zealotry plug-in.

This is a big problem for us because Zealotry is the most stable of our clients at this time, and the one that we believe is in the widest use. There's unfortunately no easy way to update it, because we'd have to rewrite it from practically scratch, using their new programming system.

There are tricks that you could use to to prevent Mozilla updates, but we don't particularly suggest them, as you want to have a clean, secure browser. Fortunately, there are two alternative browsers that will support Zealotry. Each of them branched off of an earlier version of Mozilla Firefox, and each of them continues to be updated for important security issues.

Pale Moon Browser

The Pale Moon browser is our suggested replacement. It is a totally separate browser that branched off of Firefox some years ago. It will continue to support the classic plug-ins.

To install it:
  • Install Pale Moon (Windows & UNIX only)
  • Install the Zealotry XPI on Pale Moon
  • Restart the Pale Moon Browser
  • Play on Pale Moon

The official version of Pale Moon only supports Windows and UNIX, but you can also get a slightly less official version of Pale Moon for the Mac. We've tested it out and it looks like it's clean and works correctly, but use your own level of caution in working with the Mac variant.

If You Have Errors

Some users are experiencing "Content Encoding Errors" when using Pale Moon and Zealotry. As best we can tell, this is due to an incompatibility between Windows 8.1, Pale Moon, and Plugins. If you have this problem (or any other), we suggest instead using Mozilla's extended-release version of Firefox, which branched at Firefox 52. It's expected to remain supported until at least June 28, 2018, by which time Mozilla is planning to jump their ESR to a post-plugin phase. This is therefore a short-term solution, but we expect to have full release of our New HTML5 client well before that.

To install it:
The Big Picture

Our larger-scale goal is to introduce a new client that will be usable on any browser and make our games generally more accessible. We've had a HTML5 client in process since last year, but are currently hitting roadblocks that make a deployment before November 14 problematic. We've also just started a second project, which would be more specifically focused as a Zealotry replacement, without worries about new bells or new whistles. Both of these possibilities are being done out-of-house, by Skotos players, but they're receiving our highest level of attention for whatever support they need, as this is all our top priority.

So, consider this a short-term fix, but in the meantime if you use Zealotry, please download one of the alternative browsers and test them out ASAP.

      Any idea why it got deleted? There a TOS conflict with streaming or something?

      I just find it surprising how many spam threads get created in these forums yet a thread where someone contributes to trying to garner interest in TEC gets deleted....

      Anyway, keep streaming bro, love to watch these in my free time

          Wow!

          This is probably one of the funnest streams yet. Legionary Arteus and Maliken head up to Franlius because of a trash-talking Cineran Marine.
          We get up there and quickly take a couple out. We feel real good about ourselves. Let me just say that doesn't last long as things quickly spin out of control...

          During the stream I talk about combat tactics in group, how much fun text-to-speech would be during combat, we go into a bit of how it is to fight on the docks in Franlius, attempt to interrogate a prisoner, and join the Iridine Legion making a push on the docks. All the while Arteus' player is with me on Skype giving me a back and forth.

          Best Stream Yet. Have a look at it folks!

          Bonus content: I talk a little bit about the heat between Skotos and I near the very end. Skip ahead if you want, though some information is peppered throughout the stream.

          Thanks for watching!

                Hey! I'm going to be streaming right meow.

                I'll be going through character creation and the tutorial. It's been a while but I thought I might cover some basic topics.

                Cheerio,

                      I'll be streaming Veromos again this evening. Maybe in five hours or so.

                      Focus this time around will be first steps in Iridine! What to do. Where to do it. How to do it. Things like that.

                      Stay tuned!

                        Veromos will be taking his first steps in Iridine. I'll be focusing on simple How-Tos and what his first few days will look like.
                        Feel free to come by the stream or IG to get some role-playing done!

                            Hey. Added a new video over at Twitch. Just did up some starter stuff like where to earn money, the Ludus Valerius, where to get some early training in, that sort of stuff.

                            I hope you enjoy!
