  • Why can't people let things rest? Refer to the thread about why people don't like Gmod Roleplay if you're going to analyze "true" roleplay. We get it already: -The majority think Kuro's scripts are overpriced. -The scripts mentioned earlier are recommended over paying. -Kuro is still making money. -We shouldn't give a damn over who is using what script as long as people are having fun. As far as the no-refund policy, they should play the game-mode before making the mistake of buying something they didn't like. Can we please stop posting now?

OpenAura is the next DarkRP, it consists mostly from deathmatch, lack of actual roleplay, story and character development. Take a look at Phase Four servers, they are horrible.

  • [QUOTE=Jocken300;29778047]Except that if you get around 20 players on OpenAura the server begins to lag.[/QUOTE] Wrong. I've hosted OA with roughly 30-45 players without lag. Crashes, however, are a different story.

I don't know which Open Aura servers you've been playing at, but the whole core of Open Aura is based on anti-deathmatch, true roleplay, story and especially character development. If you play at a server ran by some kids who just downloaded a crappy unlegit version of Open Aura, I understand that they don't fulfill the core. Instead, try something more professional. DarkRP is the exact opposite. DarkRP doesn't even got characters. DarkRP doesn't even got a local OOC command and did not have any /me command until the latest versions. It still don't got any /it command. The whole concept of jobs like gangster, mobboss, and hobo is just absurd. The mentioned "jobs" aren't jobs. Really, the whole "job" concept in general is very strange. Instead of looking at players like members of different groups (jobs) a true roleplay gamemode should look at players as individual characters which can have several jobs at the same time and develop criminality even though they aren't a member of any group or job. Open Aura has maybe become a bit like the new DarkRP on many servers. But the reason for that is mainly because of the leaked versions of it, that makes it possible for any kid to start an Open Aura server and ruin Open Aura's reputation.

  • Well, if you want to see Open Aura at its best moments, you should try out some more professional servers. This one pretty good for example: 89.145.94.250:27015

  • The script doesn't dicate quality of RP. It's possible to have amazing roleplay on DarkRP, if you got enough like-minded individuals to do so. Not that I'd reccomend it, but I'm just saying, people bitch about which gamemode is the best way too much. An intelligent community head will look for basic script stability and performance over stupid post processing and fancy vgui.

Paying for a gamemode does not mean your server will be instantly good, in fact, you are more likely to attract idiots who think paid gamemodes are the only good ones (like yourself). You can roleplay to a higher quality without a script than with scripts like OA, all it takes is the right players with the right mindset. The script is just spoon feeding you shit so your unimaginative brain doesn't have to stress itself. Relying on a script makes you a bad roleplayer, end of story.

You're implying that paying a few hundred bucks for a collection of lua files and such makes your server "professional", if that even exists. You see, that few hundred bucks could've been spent for a better quality in hosting. And like others have mentioned, the gamemode doesn't dictate the quality of RP, it's the playerbase. Hell, I've actually roleplayed on DarkRP, and just this week, I've roleplayed with a few other chumps on my server hosting Tiramisu, or your so called "inferior gamemode". You got scammed son.

  • Out of several hundreds of DarkRP server we can find 2 professional servers. Out of 8 Open Aura servers, we can find 2 professional servers.. Wait.. Maybe script actually got some kind of impact? "Relying on a script makes you a bad roleplayer, end of story." I totally agree. I don't see what you're trying to suggest here. As I've said several times, the script surely got an impact, but a professional server administration and management are even more important parts of a successful server.

The free version of openAura works just fine and I usually find that people who buy openAura are spoilt little kids with what they think are massive egos, trying to make fun for them and them only.

A clear example. I know about 50 people from my school that play Gmod. And all of them are rpers(some of them like tt and etc.). I made a server. I installed some DarkRP modules such as advanced inventory, 3d text, pickpocketting, bank system and two three other epic addons(there was something like per-job-level and job ranks). I completely changed the hud and the name that the gamemode appered on the games tab. I set a password and I said that we will meet in the server(it will be runing half an hour before the meeting) at 21:00 GMT +2. And 30 people did. After that i removed the password because 5 of them had to go. And inn 4 minutes another 5-7 people left. Then the server got full (32 players) because ppl we didn't know entered. And it was great. Nobody knew that this was DarkRP. And we had a great rp. Cause even with the modules andhud, everything that's running is still darkrp so this proves that DarkRP is a great gamemode and it just has bad rep so minges enter most darkrp servers. Now stfu. And to the author of this thread - son if you haven't payed for the gamemode still - don't. If you want HL2RP Just download Tiramisu, it comes with a hl2rp schema.

If you do not like glitchy gamemodes, you will go find the thread that tells where to get OpenAura.
  • Everybody needs to cool off and stop being so one-sided. So far, it's only been "Omfg it's not real RP", or "Omfg, Tiramisu is too buggy". Why don't we look at both? OpenAura is a product being sold for profit. If Conna developed it the same way as Tiramisu is being developed, he would have no profit. That's why it's mostly eye candy. It grabs people. It invites them. Ignorant people are more likely to buy Crysis than Doom because of the graphics, same with OA and Tiramisu. However, Tiramisu is more original and takes a step back from being everywhere. When RPing, there's barely any noticeable HUD which adds to immersion, and uses an innovative clothes system. But, it looks a lot less appealing to the eye, which wards off people. The two gamemodes have different goals. Stop crying about which is better, your not changing anyones mind.

  • [QUOTE=deaded38;30488062]Because it is.[/QUOTE] Dude - STFU. I just said somethings. That DarkRP is great gamemode just most of the players there suck. And if you wanna play OA go play it. I would never create a OA server just because I have tried playing OA three times and the char syste, was bugged. + I played WW3 rp and it was just walking between 4 rocks.
