Post news RSS Update #01

Here is the update that was promised and to answer some of the questions.

Posted by on

We at Argus have decided to discard the cryengine 3 due to its limits. We will be going ahead and creating our own. As some of you may have already guessed we will call it the The Seed Engine. We have already started coding on it. Here is some updates on SAO. 1 there will be 10 unique skills that will have certain criteria to be met before a player gets one of them and when that said player dies it will then be given to the next player that qualifies for it. 2. We are going to be doing all of the 100 floors. 3. Marriage will be included. 4. This will be on the Nerve Gear. 5. The anime characters like Klein and Kirito will belong to the Game Masters. 6. You will be able to browse the internet while in sao. 7. All the GMs will start at level 1 with the basic equipment just like everyone else. You will be able to find more answers in a FAQ that is going to be posted on the forums in a few days.

Do those numbers represent importance of each individual task?
Cuz number 3 is probably the most non important part.

Anyways...still no info on how you plan on building nerve gear.
Tell us some ideas,cuz people probably wont take you seriously.

No the numbers don't represent the importance. We are going to see if we can stimulate the senses like taste and touch using electrodes

Dear Akira_Shaga1

Thank you. this is pretty big stuff. I wish you some amazing luck, I mean stimulating sense and touch using electrodes? I would love to work with you and help create nerve gear. You're 2 year anniversary is coming soon. Congrats.

Also, when do you plan it will be finished?
Exited, Dem

How are you going to stop people movement while using nerve gear?

I would assume something like a Neuromuscular-blocking drug like Atracurium it blocks the brains signals from the muscles and only lasts about 30 mins there are other drugs that last longer or shorter but i would assume something along these lines but you know different sine this drug stops all muscles including the diaphragm lol i dont wanna suffocate : )

I'm not at all sure how this would work, or if it would work, but I do know that sleep paralysis keeps the body from moving. Plus it naturally happens to everyone so you wouldn't have to drug anybody or suffocate them! XD

Maybe the key is in combining these two.
A drug that acts like what happens naturaly when you sleep.
Something like the thing they put on you to make you asleep when you are going on a surgery.
While you have the mask on you are in-game when you log out the drug stops.
One more point that would be hard is how to keep the brain working full capacity?
Cuz when you sleep your brain is doing just the basic functions.

I think they will use a nerve intersepter in the nerve gear that intersects the electron signals

And isn't it dangerous ? Isn't there any repercutions for that use of the brain ? :\

(btw, our brain cannot be at full capacity, we are using only a small part)

This Game is going to be a massive hit cant wait thanks for the info Akira_Shaga1!! The one thing that worries me is the cost of all this.. i mean when the game and Nerve Gear are finally finished whats it gonna cost to get the game as well as the gear. I've started putting away some money bit by bit because i have at least 4 years to save up. Anyways Thank You So Much For Keeping Us Updated!!

Well,I think a lot of people would buy nerve gear at any price because it's such a good device.
But,if the creators of nerve gear want nerve gear to spread faster and most people using it then the price should be affordable.

I think Akira or someone said that Kirito and Asuna and such will give you quest but you will not be able to join/invite them to a party.

I have a question: Will the npcs be played by the Game Masters too? I know the main characters like Klein and Kirito will be played by GMs but what about the ingame NPCs such as Yui, Skuld, or Thrym?

A player will be able to obtain it. It wouldnt be fair if only the gms got the unique skills now would it?

if you guys are trying to recreate the whole sao thing with the NG being released at the same date and all thats ok.. but I would already be satisfied enough if you guys just focused more on the mmorpg game. maybe some oculus and motion detection controller support that would already be awesome. because its too hard and long to recreate the same thing.. try to focus more on the game guys. maybe the alpha version could have all the UI ready and maybe like a few maps, it doesnt have to be very complete.. we just want to see the progress

Well we are trying to create the actual SAO game. It won't have the same feel as the actual game if we use motion devices. We are trying to get all senses for the NG. About the alpha, if we did have an alpha it would have a lot of the features from the real game. It should have most of the UI in it if not all.
