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.

Mozilla Firefox ESR

An alternative for all users, but especially for Mac users, is Mozilla's extended-release version of Firefox that branched at Firefox 52. It's expected to remain supported until at least June 28, 2016, by which time Mozilla is planning to jump their ESR to a post-plugin phase. This is therefore a short-term solution, but one that should work for a while longer.

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.

    there seems to be a random black arrow stuck in near the checkpoint on the steps central map, not a big deal but judging by the amount of effort you're pouring into these you're likely a perfectionist like some of the rest of us 8)

      Thanks for the feedback! I decided to use black/red arrows to indicate one-way checkpoint access, instead of the old style. I figured that'd be more helpful for folks unfamiliar with how the checkpoints and access in the Steps work. Take a walk around the area and let me know what you think!

          Could you add where all of the Street Smarts trainers are located? Maybe also the Pickpocketing/Setups trainer in Rock Valley?

            There are some hints for the street smarts trainers here:

            http://eternal-city.wikidot.com/street-smarts

            Regarding stash/find stash, I have heard they are taught by the children in the forum near the bank, but I have never been able to get them to teach anything myself, so I'm not sure.

            I think adding similar hints for the pickpocketing/setups trainers would be a good idea. If someone has suggestions I'd be happy to help add them to the wiki.

                My philosophy for the maps has been: Map what is easily seen. If you have to climb, dig, search for something, etc., it won't go in my map. Adding some hints to the Wiki is a good idea!

                Irisa, I'm away this weekend but happy to add some more info to the Wiki when I get back.

                        Not that is publicly available on these forums. Maps that show areas with fixed environmental dangers are generally not allowed to be posted. You're meant to learn about those kinds of places and their dangers IG. Same for the BHC, Twilight, etc.

                          You spelled the Wayfarer's name wrong; in both the map itself and the guide section below.




                          Also, you got the innkeeper wrong at the Blue Horse Inn, just down the street to the west. The innkeep is Eusylios, not Tertian; who is only the barkeep.
