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.

  • ~Welcome Thread~

    The first thread for the Noise Forum!

    So, it's just as simple as it's titled. Introduce yourself, let us know where you're from, who you play (Staffers included ), blah blah important stuff et cetera. Hop to it!

    My two cents...

    I'm Alyssa. Damn sexy redneck player of Lazarus.

    I rule the Green *kicks Hunter Man off his totem pole*

    I'm in Vegas, from Missouri and going back eventually. Been with LP for a good....eight...or so months now.

    You'll catch me IG at least 10-14 hours a day when things are going good. To the new players and old. I play Aleuria and Akira.

    Anyways...last note. My age? I'm old enough to know better, young enough to do it one more time, sweetie.

    So enough incessant chatter. Welcome to the Lazarus Project. Enjoy your stay, get used to be surrounded by the lot of us basta - *cleans it up for the young'ns* The lot of us Badgers. And look out for the Docs.

    p.s. I'm always willing to help new players with getting better acquainted both IC and OOC with the game when I am around. So feel free to ask for help.

    Edit: First NEW thread since being re-tacked in the big boys and girls Forums.

    Hiii!
    It's nice to meet you!
    I wish I didn't know your aaalts. It is probably just me, but I think knowing people's alts kind of ruins the experience for me. I like to have a fresh outlook on each character individually, so that I know I am not being swayed by my ooc knowledge. Which isn't easy to do. But it's more fun like that.

      Hi!
      Steffeny. I'm in the Over 40 crowd of people... for most of you, probably as old as your parents, or their brothers and sisters.

      Location, State of Denial.... I'd rather only give out geographic stuff after I get to know people for a bit. I trust all of the players, but you never know what whack-job might end up reading this eh? Besides, I'll be moving the middle of May, so whatever I type here will be out of date soon enough.

      My Primary is Fionn (aka Fionnghuala, Nell, Fi, that maintenance chick, your big sister). Other alts you may discover if I accidently type an answer in the wrong window *eyeshift*

      Anyway, I am an animal person, I have a cat, and share a dog currently, but won't be taking the dog with me when I move, he will be staying with other family. I have a BS in Microbiology and will soon be going back to college to pick up the skills I need for certification as a Medical Lab Technologist.

      I joined LP December 25, 2006.

        Hello

        Im Sarah. Ive been playing Laz for a year or so now. I live on the East cost of the US. I play Araine as my main and I play Sammy and a few other chars who you'll have to figure out on your own as alts.

        Some random stuff about me is...my favorite band is My Chemical Romance and I like vampire related books and movies. As for hobbies I like to color/paint and play keyboard (like the instrument not the actual keyboard. I do have a small life outside Laz ) And I have a two dogs, a cat, a bunny, and a fish. As for a career I'm undecided for now but Ive actually been considering botany. We'll see where it goes.

        Thats it in a nut shell pretty much.

          *revives for new players and other old*

          Ello, my name is Momo I'm Domi's player, as well as a couple alts. And no, Monique's not one of them :P I just happen to have her nickname in RL.

          I've been playing for a couple years, whee to the older Lazzies! My current play has been up and down; many of you know I attend a Uni, and for those who don't know I'm going for my Bach. in Animation, therefor it's taken a lot of my free time. That and I'm a college girl, we like to party :P
          Couple random facts: I hate candy, love to dance, craft a hell'a lot, and design costumes. I'm not one to tell random peeps about me, but you seem like cool cats! :P

          So what are your fancies?

            Hi

            I'm Veronica Rose, And No, not Veronica's Player,she stole my name first. I play Troubule and a few others, I started this game YEARS ago with a character that I forgot the pass and email to. I was here when the Xeno ripped Vallons arm off.

            Random things about me: I'm a tat apprentice for a crazy ass dude named Fred. They call me Vicious V, Vicious-Tron 9000, etc etc. I'm dating my fellow tat artist, Paul. I'm into really creepy frightening things, but I like reading, horse back riding, swimming, ice skating, etc. and of course LARPING and MMOing. Laz is one of my fav games. I live right next to New Orleans and yes I am a FRREEAKK.

            I love GIRLS
            I love kitties but not like I love girls.
            I love pocky almost more than I love girls.
            I love this game more than kitties, pocky, and girls combined.

                I play Shay and am mostly on..not much xD sometimes a lot, sometimes never, sometimes sometimes. >_> but I'm pretty busy..I'm at college..lots of work and socializing ;]

                I'm also learning to drive. Woo. I named my car Alice, after Alice Cullen, cause it's small, sparkly and silver. And pretty tough. I am kind of a Twihard and I also <3 the Jonas Brothers

                Yep, I'm immature, but I love you all! Sorry that Shay doesn't. She can be a bitch.

                  I'm Jack, I'm 35 (I think I'm the second oldest player), and I'm a 7th grade teacher. I live in a small-ish town about 20-30 minutes outside of Columbus, Ohio. Within the past few months, I rekindled my love of music and art. Currently, I listen to a lot of Tool, A Perfect Circle, Gorillaz, and Soul Coughing. My favorite artist is Alex Grey. I've started to read H.P. Lovecraft a bit, and I absolutely despise Twilight *glares at Shay's player*...here's how it shoulda gone down. I generally play a lot of games, and right now I'm occupying myself with Dragon Age: Origins, and replaying Half-Life on Hard. The generally shows I watch are The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, Scrubs, Attack of the Show, Family Guy, and the occasional Simpsons. I think that about covers it..

                  GO BUCKS!!!
                  Oh, yeah...we here in Ohio are almost fanatical in our devotion to the Ohio State Buckeyes. I try to catch every single football game, and I party when we play the Michigan Wolverines, our biggest rivals. Damned Wolverines...

                      H.P. Lovecraft is a famous horror writer from the '20's. He wrote short stories, like "The Call of Cthulhu", "The Shadow Over Innsmouth", and "The Colour Out Of Space". His stories are what the games Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, and Lovecraft Country (it's the game that's below LP in the Prose Roleplaying section)

                      I just realized I underlined the game names...I appear to be a grammar Nazi...

                      Edit: For anyone who decides to read his stuff, but is offended by racist remarks, I recommend not reading it. For example: he names a cat "N*gger-Man"...

                          Hiya!

                          Hey everybody! I'm Mandy, have been playing Laz for I don't know how long, a year or two maybe. I'm Isabella, or Bella as she is normally called. And no, I am nothing like her. I'm working my way towards a degree in Veterinary Technology, I love animals and have a crap load of pets to prove it. I also like vampires and horror stories, as well as history stuff and fictional history stories. In all honesty, I have enough books that I could probably start my own library.

                          Side note: H.P. Lovecraft is friggin' awesome!

                            Hey folks - figured I'm up so I'll get on the "Welcome Thread" bandwagon since I missed it the first time around.

                            I play Ozzrik. I play some other games, should be able to figured those out, I'm not terribly inventive with my names...or diverse as the case may be.

                            I'm 30, married. Work full-time running a statewide organization in Colorado, but live in Denver. Originally from NYC with brief stops in a lot of states.

                            My favorite reads vary. Right now: The Lost Symbol. Previously I was on a three year kick of American History. I've read the first Twilight book to see the allure. I got some of it and some of it went completely over my head. At least it verified that I'm not a teenage girl.

                            Hobbies include a nice spirit (the consumable type), a newspaper, my lappy toppy, cooking and a TV. (No particular order.) If those are not available, hiking, running and the never working ab workout.

                            Rock On.
