Greetings,

What we have here is the beginning of something altogether spectacular. Dyso is back up, but Dyso is nothing but a module and some forums, without its community (we, the players). It would be na´ve to think we would be able to get a regular gaming group together immediately, playing actively on the server, but at least this is a start, we just have to hang in there, and visit the forums and keep in touch with the ones we have found until things pick up. Even if they don't, we will still have this fantastic mini-reunion to remember, and hopefully we will all be able to stay in touch to some extent, be it through instant messaging, Facebook, or these forums.

The truth is, we didn't all get along back in the day. As much as Dyso was a source for joyful entertainment and friendship, it was also prone to set certain people on a collision course for arguing, misunderstandings, and general grief. It has been seven years since Dyso first started up, and in that time, we have all changed or grown in one way or another. We've managed to get some perspective, on ourselves and our lives. Many of us are reading through old threads here, and are reminded of certain behaviours that we don't really understand today. Most of us were but tadpoles, and it's to be expected that the teenage years are torrentous and unpredictable at best. It's possible we still regret some events; things we've said or done.

Most of us have made mistakes and done things we might regret in retrospect. It's possible we might still hold a grudge towards certain personalities we've encountered, and find it impossible to forgive those that have wronged us or pissed us off in some manner, even after all these years. It is my hope that we still can be able to welcome any and all old Dyso players who feel obliged to return and spend time with us again, because no matter what grievances that occurred in the past, we were, in all honesty, all big fans of Dyso, and we all spent an incredible amount of time here. I have myself behaved horribly from time to time, and I would not wish for anyone to still hold that against me, without giving me the chance to apologize, or to show that I'm not that person anymore. Naturally, if we get a more solid player base going, rules must be established and enforced, but until then, let's just rejoice in the fact that we are alive and well, and are able to give a nostalgic smile, remembering Dyso. Together.

I love you all (in the manly, throwing darts and drinking beer kind of way), and no matter if the past is gone, and those days never really will return, I am very happy to still have those memories, and even happier to be able to share them with others. Here's to a peaceful reunion! icelolly.gif

Lol question,

The servervault is dated from November of 2004. I thought I had something out there newer (and more complete,) but I'm striking out in finding it. There are some characters that are missing, and I am still trying to track those down.

The mod is version 1.03.04, for whatever it's worth. Solo and I are trying to find a newer one (perhaps Muric might have something more recent?)

As a side note, I have installed backup software as well as a tape drive onto the server. Now I can run nightly tape jobs, and hopefully keep better track of the data on the server. icon_biggrin.gif You may notice some lag during it's backup period (which runs at 0300 EDT, every morning, lasting for about 15 minutes.)

Unless Mitch has them in his vault. Most characters have been saved, only a few of us have lost ours. icon_sad.gif

So much time wasted...

I mean no offence. Dyso was awesome. I literally obsessed over it. Good thing I never got around playing a real MMO. My life would've been GONE.

I guess I feel that way about video games in general nowadays.

Think of the people who were actually building the mods, I spend at least half a day either playing or working on mods back then, if not more.

Aw, but... most of us appreciate the time that went into Dyso. I'm sorry to hear it felt like a waste.

Well not exactly a waste, learned a lot from it but i wish my own mod had at least a decent run before it all came crashing down.
We had so many cool ideas that never really saw the light of day.

i'm pretty sure that Muric and Sophi still have the version of Dyso they were running way back when. if it's desired, i can ask them and see if they could send it to the right people.

You can send what you have to me at dyso@joelpt.net. If the files are too big for email you could upload them to http://drop.io and mail me the link.
