Defensive target was amazing, it made so many new mechanics available. Buffing people, healing people based on combo attacks. So good.

Also paved the way for newer games to have this concept, like Warhammer Online. It's actually a significantly major change to how tab targeting MMOs work in all aspects. However, it's an amazing one especially for PVP MMOs.

I really hope WoW someday adopts that in their UI by default. It's a huge QOL feature that I am unsure as to why it hasn't been implemented. Imagine being able to track a focus target defensively and offensively without having to keybind for both of those targets by name or index.

I don’t really have to imagine it because Vanguard did it, not sure what you meant by that.

It was a fantastic design and all future MMOs should have it. Even party based single player games or ARPGs could benefit from this. Being able to buff or heal your NPC / friends without targeting them would be welcomed by everyone I think.

WoW *still* doesn't have it, and it'd be a huge QOL change for PvP healing - especially on stuff like Paladins and Disc Priests. WoW has this huge focus on competitive rated arenas/RBGs, it would be a game changer for accessibility for competitive pvp

Less talk and more networking with current Darkpaw employees.

We are still working on the EMU, just wish we had another C++ coder to make it go faster. We have some really dedicated folks plugging away daily on quests, npc placement and pathing, diplomacy, and crafting recipes. There is slow but steady progress on bringing it back to life, and we are all pretty committed to staying the course until its done, no matter how long it ends up taking us.
Just wanted to quote this over to this thread. I had forgot people were working on the VG EMU. Would love to see if there were any progress updates posted here.

I was under the impression they stopped it long ago too. I hope it comes out before Pantheon.

We have a Discord server VGOEmulator that all of our SVN commits are automatically pushed to. It should be public. All of us are there pretty frequently to answer questions.

Sweet, thanks! Wish I could help in someway, but I am no developer.

Ive been messing around on it but not sure I will continue. So much is broken its hard to play. Crafting seems completely pointless. Mostly though, getting a new class ability and it not working makes it difficult to want to log back in.

Think at least half of my rogue abilities straight didnt work along with almost all of the basic racial abilities.
