    I liked the 1st issue, but I think there was too much “art”, making it look a bit childish; I would prefer more text and less pictures, with useful info or just curiosities and/or funny things about the game.

    Anyway, thank you for your time working on this…

    Amigo, hize exactamente lo que me dices en los pasos, y ahora me sale que la aplicacion no es un a"win32 Valida".

    Gamigo was aware of the problems with the launcher, and some maintenances ago they said they were going to fix it, and in fact I never had that problem again, and never again I needed to rename fiesta.bin and use a direct shortcut to it.

    The problem you mention probably requires reinstalling Fiesta, but sometimes that is not enough, first you need to do a deep uninstall of the game using a specialized program that removes all remaining traces (lots of times, when we uninstall a program, some files, folders and registry entries are not removed, so those specialized programs do a deep search on all related to the program we are uninstalling and delete all leftovers).

    You can search for a specialized program, but I recommend using Revo Uninstaller; I use that program for many years, and so happy with it that I even got the paid version; but the free version does a good job so, if you don’t intend to keep using this type of software, no need to pay for it.

    Just install Revo, and uninstall Fiesta from that program; it will start with the normal Fiesta uninstaller, and then will give you 3 options of search for remainings: Safe (wont search anything), Moderate, and Advanced. Use last option for a complete removal of Fiesta, and once you finish deleting all remainings, install Fiesta again.

    (...) a char (...) been vending the same pots and scrolls every single day/minute/second the game is up without fail. (...) This does not seem humanly possible (...).

    (...) game controls for regular accounts would be identical to yours or my account.

    I have, for many many years, a 24/7 vendor that doesn’t do anything else; but… the “24/7” is very relative.

    Sometimes, like it happens to all of us, it gets d/c:

    for a few seconds, if I happen to be near and notice it;

    for some minutes, until I notice it;

    for some hours, if I’m out;

    for days, if game is having serious issues and I get tired of constantly relog the vendor.

    Also, after maintenance, I’m not always at home, so I can’t immediately reopen it. Even if I am at home, I’m not trying to relog nonstop just to get the spot I want, that’s a serious waste of time, even for someone who don’t have anything else to do…

    Like many others, I have my favorite vending spots, but sometimes those are taken, and I can’t reopen where I want.

    Even if the spot is free, there will always be minor differences: exact location, position/direction, etc.

    So, if the situation is exactly as Graves describes it, it is very strange; which made me think someone could be abusing privileges. Of course ppl wouldn’t have GM rights on their normal accs, but we know GMs can manipulate normal chars, like relocating them on any map; that’s what came to my mind when I saw Graves description of that vendor.

    Sorry for taking so long with this subject but, like I said, vacations… 😊

    This is not a big deal, but I'm on vacations and having too much free time… :D

    I understand Graves concern; I just think he raised the subject in a wrong way. It was never a secret over the years that most support/tech team members (both from Outspark and Gamigo) have/had their own personal accounts and play on those accounts like any other player. What I think Graves meant, specifically about that char/vendor, was the possibility of some players taking advantage of being a part of tech staff to benefit their personal chars/acc, abusing their access to game controls the “normal” players don’t have…

    I think the name Fiesta Magazine is fine, I actually got excited when I've read the thread's title, my mind immediately thought about the iconic Fiesta Magazines created by FatalLace and her staff back in 2008.

    Oh yes, first thing that crossed my mind: "wow, I wonder if any relation with FatalLace work back in 2008?"

    And ty for the links, i missed some of those, and if that is all you have, you missed the "Year in Review" (that was last one I ever got), but idk how to make it available here...

    Until some hours ago, the game seemed to be fine; then I logged in a bit before 00:00 game time to get ready to do my dailies (and attendance, if it was coming back – day 1 of the month).

    At 00:00 I could see attendance was back and was going to get the quests when I d/c. I relogged, saw 2 ppl complaining about d/cs /so it wasn’t just me), only to d/c again after less than 1 minute.

    I went for some stuff at home and waited about half an hour before trying again, just to get d/c again in 30 seconds or so.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Uruga seems to be down also, tryed on dif chars and it wont load (freeze at load screen) or just says "map under maint".

    Also, i saw some KQs (not sure how many) not starting (saying "preparing" instead of "recruiting", not allowing ppl to join), then disappearing after 1 minute or so...

    if there are several accounts on same computer, usually only one have admin rights. if thats your case (other ppl using your computer with dif account), ask the one with admin rights to do that for you.

    If you are the only computer user (and therefor only one acc), then you must have admin rights...

    You can get easy fame from daily L7 quest (KQ clear), even at L135, but keep in mind not all KQs can be cleared and give you the reward, you need to check/try all available KQs for your lvl to see wich ones allow you to do that daily (it doesnt say its a daily, but you can only do it one time per day, so...)

    You must have it, its the main Fiesta file, impossible to play without it. If your file explorer dont have extensions enabled (thus showing only "fiesta" and not "fiesta.bin", hover your mouse on all files with "fiesta" name to see wich one is the ".bin"

    L60 orange jewels can only be obtained in Mini Dragon Hard Core version. Keep in mind MD quests cannot be done in HC version, you need to go to normal one for it.

    we are able to check and reset the character!

    This is not a char problem. Servers/maps I tested on different chars/accs:

    Isya - Roumen: under maintenance

    Isya - Elderine: under maintenance

    Isya - Uruga: under maintenance

    Isya - Adealia Valley: under maintenance

    Pagel - Roumen: ok

    Pagel - Elderine: under maintenance (but was able to log some minutes ago)

    Pagel - Uruga: ok

    Pagel - Burning Rock: loged, to get d/c in less then 5 seconds

    Pagel - Island of Eya: ok

    I had same problem, and from what I see around, lots of ppl are having it also. Only way I could play was doing this:

    1) Open your Fiesta folder (probably "C:\gamigo\FiestaOnlineNA", or "C:\Program Files (x86)\gamigo\FiestaOnlineNA");

    2) Locate a file called "fiesta.bin";

    3) Right click on it and drag it to a blank area of the folder; release it, and you get several options: select "Copy here";

    4) You will get a new file called something like "Fiesta - Copy.bin": rename it to "Fiesta.exe" (right click on it and select "Rename");

    5) Right click and drag the new file to your desktop; when you release it, select "Create shortcuts here";

    6) From now on, ignore the Fiesta launcher you normally use (to avoid the error) and double click this shortcut to go directly to the game.

    Keep in mind you will need to run the launcher to get future updates, and also the original fiesta.bin file (that's why you made a copy and not simply renamed the file, so you still keep the original and a new executable version).

    If, after an update, the launcher is still giving errors, keep using the shortcut you made; if the shortcut is also not working, that means the fiesta.bin file was changed during the update, so just repeat the entire process (steps 1 to 6).

    I was able to do attend on one char, but as soon as I tried at another, the d/c problems started (staying online for about 1 minute then d/c). This was on Isya, didn't try on other servers, quitted trying attend already, too many d/cs to keep trying...
