Okay, big if true: Allegedly the working binary files used by the SCORE server are out in the wild, so whatever happens next Paragon City is secure. https://old.reddit.com/r/Cityofheroes/c ... n_the_wild

The binaries are definitely out there, but it doesn't seem as perfect as that thread seems to imply. Right now Leo is the only one who can really put together an I25 server. Both discords' coders are working towards getting I24 stable releases. These I24 releases are what will become the "server in a box" that basically anyone can pick up and play with. Once that's sorted out and they have a stable server up for the general users, they can start working on implementing I25 more directly.

This is just based off listening to coders and admins in both discords, I haven't touched any files outside of Tequila.

By the way, a server has been up for a while again, and the same instructions from the last page work. In fact, you need to do it all even if you were on the first server.

Also, I25 binaries are locked. One discord seems to be working towards more practical servers (they have a I25-in-a-box out there now) and may stick to I24, the other seems to maybe be going for both I24 and I25 as shards on one server. Either way, you can play again right now and the character may not be wiped.

I'm wondering if costume pieces for Champions will end up being ported back eventually. They're stored in 'hogg' format. Looking at the CoH designer it doesn't seem that Fricken the laser shark would be feasible yet.

If anyone hasn't been keeping up with this, there are a couple small communities with bad ideas for servers, and the Homecoming community has five large servers running strong, with a steady player base of ~8k people online most nights. Things are stable, moderated, and a solid place to play.

Finally got around to trying to set it up. Haven't been able to get it working with WINE yet; decided to try upgrading OpenSUSE to version 15.1, which just came out. We'll see how that goes.

ETA: No luck. Still getting an error trying to install .NET. "wine-1.3.22 or later required to install dotnet20sp1 properly", which doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense since I'm running WINE 3.7. Guess I'll look deeper when I have time.

Could hop in the #setup-install-help channel on the Homecoming discord and ask for advice on setup.
