I must have missed it in the notes or they didn't add it in the notes, but pre-made imps in 18.8 are no longer in Fair trade shops, I had asked in social, I got a reply they're only available in Omni and Clan Basic shops.
The way the reply came as if this was a planed changed
this will make it tough if it happens for those going neutral. I didn't go into Bor and checked the shop there, maybe I should have before mentioning the no premade imps for Neutrals and in Fair trade anymore ,
I'll take a quick peek, if I don't change/edit this post in the next 30 minutes, then it's true

ETA: . . yeah currently there is no where a Neutral can purchase Pre-made Implants

Implant shops just sell basic (clean) implants, and the clusters. I checked Fair trade in ICC, actually the was the first place I discovered no premade implant vendors, I later checked fair trade in Newland city, and one other locations that I can't recall.
later I checked Bor. I thought that the one shop closer to the grid terminal, I thought it was like the Basic shop, and didn't have the Fair trade name, but when I looked, it does have fair trade name and so, Now the idea it was a basic shop like Omni and/or Clan Basic shop went out the door

my hopes here is someone that can post in the official forums can confirm this for me. I don't really see any other neutrals in Testlive, so they may just not have noticed that Neutrals are out on getting premades, oh and they now only go up to QL 100.
I didn't mind things like Omni Med suits Vendor purchases, being only available for Omni's, but now premade implants. oh my noooo

guess I'm just hoping it's just part of an incomplete version , and the no premade implant vendors for Neutrals is just a temporary thing

crisis averted
they did patch test live again, and the premade implants are back in Fair trade shops

Phew was worried about that not getting fixed

So looks like all will be good tomorrow, Personally I think it's too soon for 18.8, and at the same time damn that took a while :mrgreen:

some say play AoC, same engine, but same was said about AoC and TSW, and for me there was a difference.

My machine can play AoC, except when there is a event running, it can play TSW, as long as I am solo and no one else is near me, and that would give me 13-17 FPS

AoC if no event, and in team I can maintain 17-20 fps, soloing I can reach up to 60fps, but avg 35-38fps

for a reference, this is what I have to play with
P4k
Asus ENGTX 560 DCII OC
3G memory
NO sound card or onboard sound, using head set
XPpro

I didn't try the new engine yet for AO, my thoughts on it was from the chatter in Chat in TestLive

Tried the new engine. I can see some differences, some new graphical stuff going on. It's either my machine or AO doesn't like it when I alt+tab to the desktop or to another game instance as I'll see the blue screen when I run the new engine. Then there's the beautiful graphic's at the character selection screen. I can see shiny armor and such, then log in and nothing is shiny anymore. That aside, I like the changes they made and what's been added. It wont hold up to current game technology in new games/mmo's but I still enjoy AO all the more.

Well I tried this new engine too but AO is an old game and the normal client is not very fond of my dynamic switchable graphics technology on my laptop so I was hoping that a new graphics engine would be able to work with such graphics technology and would run smoother than normal client....

First of the character selection screen looked promising but once in the game the framerate is even worse than with the normal client oon my laptop. So long story short I still play in old engine without being able to use my laptop graphix technology. I really hope Funcom works on supporting these kind of technologies so i can run again with a nice FPS and full details again.

Did you try playing with the settings to optimise it? Sometimes it can be surprising; in my case for example, turning off high grass improves frame rate quite a bit.

Even with low details the fps isn't that great, both old and new engine just don't seem to recognise my graphics card.
