The Endless Forest / Gen 4 Pictos
« on: March 13, 2014, 07:50:32 am »
I think we've got some new ones on our hands. I've been randomly curious and noseying around the picto registration page since the end of gen 3 was looming round the corner.

Gen 1 will always be my favourite :B

The Endless Forest / Frequent Asked Problems and Errors
« on: July 14, 2013, 07:42:22 am »

Here is a list of the most commonly asked problems and errors in the game. This is still being worked on so I'm not finished yet. :)

Q: I am using Windows Vista or 7 and I can't find my screenshots! Where are they?
A: Click "compatibility files" at the top in the screenshots folder and make sure  your screenshots are saved as BMP or JPG. You can change this in the options menu in the game.

Q: Why does this deer have the same pictogram as me?
A: It just looks like it has your pictogram to you, but to everyone else it has their pictogram. It's just a harmless glitch and eventually will go away.

Q: I can't see any deer! OR All of the pictograms are grouped at the bottom of the screen! What is going on?
A: It is caused by the client not receiving information about the other players from the server. The pictograms appear at the bottom of the screen because the positions of those players are actually very deep under the floor. This is a dummy location so the engine can know whether real data has been received for a player's position or not. There is no way to fix this, it usually corrects itself anywhere from an hour to a day.

Q: "ForestViewer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
A: Go to the Start Menu and select "Run...". Then type dxdiag and enter. Then wait a bit. A diagonostics tool for DirectX will open with information about your system. Check the Display section. The date of your drivers should be there. If they are old, check the website of the manufacturer to find newer ones.

Q: "ForestViewer.EXE has stopped working" on Vista?
A: Deactivate the DEP.
To deactivate DEP, go to:
Control Panel -> System -> Advanced (or extended, don't remember the translation) -> Performance -> Settings -> Data execution prevention -> set to "activate DEP only for windows programs and related services".
Make sure you are running the computer as the Administrator.

Q: How do I see a large image of my pictogram?
Type your Endless Forest username after the equal sign (not your forum name).

Q: I am getting very bad lag and the game is running slow. How can I fix this?
A: You may be able to improve the framerate by turning on Simple shadows (or turning off shadows all together), turning off Blinking and setting the character detail to "Very low".

Q: I pressed something and now I can't get my screen to stop spinning around the Twin God Statue! How do I make it stop?
A: What you did was you turned on the Abiogenesis mode, which is great for watching the Abio if you have a slow computer. It is always centered around the statue. To turn it on and off, press CTRL+W on your keyboard.

Q: How do the hotkeys work?
A: You hover your mouse of the action you want to make a hotkey, then press one of the F keys along the top except for F10, and presto! If you want to use a hotkey, make sure you move your mouse away from the action panel or you might reset it.

Q: Why do so many deer have the same pictogram?

This pictogram belongs to Michael, one of the game creators. When the new version of the game was created, Michael's pictogram started to appear over nameless deers' heads. Michael thinks his picto got lodged in the programming by accident. Hopefully this problem can be fixed without too much hassle, but for now, you can be fairly sure any deer with that pictogram is a nameless deer.

Q: My hotkeys don't work, what am I doing wrong?
A: When you choose a hotkey, you have your mouse over the emote you want to choose. Make sure after that, you move your mouse away from the menu before pressing the hotkeys. You need to make sure your mouse is not over the menu bar or they won't work.

There is also a thread with a list of how to do certain things in the forest. To check it out, click here.

The Endless Forest / The Endless Encyclopedia of TEF Pelts and Sets!
« on: July 14, 2013, 07:40:01 am »
Bringing this one over too.


Welcome to The Encyclopedia of TEF Pelts, Antlers, and Masks!

Thanks to everyone the Endless Encyclopedia is finally complete, please enjoy!

 :idea: The 1st goal is to document all the different accessories a deer can wear- antlers, pelts and masks.
 :idea: The 2nd goal is to figure out which pieces go together and get those confirmed by Auriea or Michael! (Although it is unlikely they will say want goes with what, so we'll use community consensus.)

:lol: :D :!: Current E.E. News: {Updated Nov-07-08}
 :arrow: Thanks again to Raku we've got the dark brown pelt (the one similar to the Real Deer pelt) and the E.E. is as updated and complete as I can imagine it!
 :arrow: All images in this thread are now linked from the E.E.'s own photo bucket! I am sorry it took me so long to do this and add new items!
 :arrow: The next task is to update the URLs of all the images in the Special/Rare/Missing Sets sister-thread.
 :arrow: I will also compile a bunch of the Wrestler/Luchador masks into an easier-to see picture. If you have long-shots and close ups of the masks please post them!

 Thanks again for all your help and patience everyone!

:idea: Please note that the many Mardi Gras pelts, masks and antlers are listed here:[/u] and here:

:idea: Special, rare or missing pelts, masks, and antlers are listed

 :arrow: Once combinations are decided I'll stick them up in this first post!
 :arrow: We should also decide as a group what to call the sets and items.
 :arrow: Help the project by trying to get all one set for your deer and catch a good screenie!
 :arrow: Also screenies of just single individual parts- masks antlers or pelts are good so we can piece together the full sets.

Thanks again to everyone for helping & putting up with me while I sound like a snobbish wikipedia article!
