Hello, faithful users of sunrise,
its time to make some changes and at the same time a few steps ahead with the administration of sunrise. Most of you know the history of sunrise, how we started, our progress over the years and all the e-wars that we had with our competitors. One of the most difficult issue that we had to deal with all this years, was keeping the files safe from leechers and shares. Its well written on the rules and the terms you accept while you become an upgraded user, that sharing the files with others might cost you a permanent ban, however it seems that some of the users never followed that rule. As a result of this we were thinking twice ( or not even thinking about it ) when it was about to commit some good content on the source files, knowing that it might be distributed to wrong hands. So now that you learned the reason that our project progress was a little bit slow sometimes, we are ready to overcome this issue and return the projects activity back to its glory.
For this to happen, we need to make some changes to the whole’s project stracture, terms and policy.
I am really happy to announce you that the last 6 months we were working with @vGodFather on a new web application (platform) build-ed specifically for l2jsunrise users, in order to organize things and keep the files safe from leechers and wrong hands. There are many things that are about to change but i will try to keep this topic as clean as i can and include only what its important !
With the next updates (revs) of sunrise, files gonna need a valid license key in order to run perfectly. Do not worry about it, license keys check will not effect anyway the gameplay or the emulator itself. (no external connections etc…). Each member will be able to generate 6? license keys at the same time, erase and re-create them at anytime. We do not want to effect the usage of the files for the users, we just want to avoid re-sells and shares.
We discontinue to provide lifetime access to the sources. From now on, sunrise will become a subscription based project. We are about to provide 1 and 3 years subscription. The current gold/platinum users gonna take 1 years of free subscription, so it not gonna effect you somehow for the time being.
3) SVN Restriction
Your SVN accounts will require to have a registered IP on the sunrise platform in order to be operational. Do not worry about it, you gonna be able to change anytime the registered IP with no fee. Remember we just want to keep the files safe and not to effect anyway the users.
You might experience some issues with sunrise website the next days, due to the heavy maintaining tasks. Keep your eyes on the forum for more information and let me know your thoughts about our new big step to a better community/project.
