Ok I am far from a developer but I see there are 2 other superhero games being worked on so here we go 1. have we tried to see if any of these developers are willing to give a hand in helping with bringing back the game we all are actually fighting for COH?? 2. I have logged into test server it is very laggy most of the time but logging into Atlas is a start :) 3. I have split a file package up with all files to run test server in zips to allow easy access but have no shared this info due to first needing tested to make sure everything is working and secound to see if question 1 is answered due to I could take these zips with instructions in the package and send this to the right people to see what kinda responses we get back. I would love to help any other way I can do we have the word out about this enough?? or are we trying to keep the project more calm and not out to everyone? just some questions I am trying to understand where we are headed, sorry if this is in the wrong area or these questions have been answered.

This is the thread that was posted on cohtitan, as You might've noticed, as expected the response was not that great :) Why 'expected' ? It's the difference between doing something new and finding out how to integrate the old with the 'new', they require a slightly different temperaments. We need to remember that anyone that would like to share her/his time between SEGS and other CoH related projects, might worry about creating a possible legal attack vector for their other project.
2. I have logged into test server it is very laggy most of the time but logging into Atlas is a start :)
Lag ? please provide the description of said lag, it could be related to something else.
3. I have split a file package up with all files to run test server in zips to allow easy access but have no shared this info due to first needing tested to make sure everything is working and secound to see if question 1 is answered due to I could take these zips with instructions in the package and send this to the right people to see what kinda responses we get back.

Depends on your definition of 'enough', as for sending the server out ? sure, the code is open source and you're free to do whatever you like with it ;)
or are we trying to keep the project more calm and not out to everyone? just some questions I am trying to understand where we are headed, sorry if this is in the wrong area or these questions have been answered.
The project is out, the code is available, the more people know about it, the higher the chance we catch an eye of a like-minded code-simian :)

To answer your first question, this topic has been discussed on the Titan forums. I'm assuming that is how you know about the other two projects. But the general response seemed to be that no one wanted to help out for two reasons:
  • * The client version used here is the earliest instead of the most up-to-date.
    * Fear of what NCSoft may do.

I'm pretty sure I'm aware of the two other projects you're referring to... TPP and HAV? I'm not really in favor of these myself because it plain and simple won't be the same old City of Heroes we all used to know and love. I'm really not sure why other developers haven't offered to lend out a hand here. I would if I could but, alas, I'm still only in school learning the basics. I've seen the source code and it's way above my knowledge.

In my opinion, this is definitely something more on the down low. As long as no one goes out screaming to NCSoft saying "Hey look at what these guys did!" and the word can go around quietly to those that miss the game very much, things should be in order. I'm under the impression that SEGS has already received one bad letter from NCSoft, so let's try to not make it get any worse than that, even if the original City of Heroes no longer exists. I'm no legal expert but lawyers these days seem to get away with anything for a company.

Just to clarify, that letter was received by our progenitor project ( "cohemu" ), SEGS has received no such "legal" threats.
