Offline Darkspore?

Anything and everything Darkspore.

Offline Darkspore?

Postby gutinstinct17 » Mon Apr 11, 2011 12:07 pm

As much as I like Co-op and pvp, I believe that Darkspore should have an offline mode. When your internet connection is bad or you don't have internet or you just don't want to play online, you could still play and enjoy the game. This could benefit many people, I for one, and make a quicker and better gaming experience for all darkspore players. Please post your thoughts and opinions below. :)

So long as you don't mind having separate 'on-realm' and 'off-realm' personas there shouldn't be a technical reason why SP is impossible...

Darkspore is a multiplayer game with everything being stored server side. For at least the immediate future, there will not be an offline mode.

Do you guys at least have plans for the future? Presumably at some point it won't make sense for you to keep maintaining a Darkspore server, but there are plenty of games, like diablo and counter strike, which I still like to play once in a while decades on, and hopefully darkspore will be one of those.

User warned for post. Do not discuss hacking or cracking Darkspore (or any game), unless you are trying to tell a developer about a crack/exploit.--MaxisKiwiboat

Simple: Buy and install the game, then download a crack ( making sure to take all the precautions you should when downloading stuff off the internet ). To crack the game, they will have to make it save files on your computer. This means offline mode. It's how they did it with AC2/BH. Remember, there are legitimate uses for these cracks, and this is one of them...though it still won't be officially acknowledged I'm sure:)

If you went down this route, you would not be able to play the game at all :) All games and data are hosted and stored on our servers. It would be like trying to play WoW offline (i.e. not possible).

Id like to see you try.

To do that you'd have to somehow %~##@^&*#$%# and we all know that $%#^@&$*# and that would mean that #&$^*@$% which would mean it would be impossible

You know all you'd have to do is spoof a %$$@#%#@#, which while it would be a little excessive is possible, I'm sure someone will take the time though, I haven't been poking around at the game so I'm not sure how secure everything is but realistically anything can be cracked with enough time and will. I like the server side data since it means that there shouldn't be an ability to item dup / cheat in pvp, avoiding the problem a lot of games like this have had

Well, after talking with mkb a bit, it seems more than just saves are server side. Because it actually contains game data, even to run single player you would need to run a full server emulator akin to mmo emulators. These typically take teams of people years to put together.

Lol yeah but the server emulation would only have to have one data set, that can't be too hard can it?
x] But seriously, you're pretty much out of luck, course internet really isn't that expensive, only reason I'm not paying for mine now is because I'm moving at the end of the month, tons of places have decent wifi lol hop down to burger king or mcdonalds to play :D
