For those of you not knowing, DOFUS is a massive multiplayer online role playing game (also known as MMORPG). Though being written in France by french people, the game is now popular enough to be played worldwide and servers have 20 millions registered users.

The game can now be played for free within standards maps of this online world. You need to register yourself to play but you not need to pay anything. Extension maps can be accessed by players paying a (low) monthly fee.

This huge game encounters a merited success as being of high quality on every aspect, from design to game-play... Being written in Flash it can be played on all platforms, windows, macintosh, linux... but requires huge ressources. That's why so many players using windows had encountered so much problems while playing online, along with other kind of problems related to the operating system.

So, in support to the players community of the DOFUS online world, i am proud to present you today a complete operating system based on Puppy linux distribution v2.14 named... eXpand - DOFUS edition

This customized distribution of Puppy aims at running the DOFUS client game without any problem and have been intensively tested in our local area. But anyway we will assume support for upcoming releases of DOFUS software if needed.

Particularly dedicated to core gamers, eXpand - DOFUS edition comes with everything needed to play, connect to internet, play DOFUS, chat with others players, analyse network in case of need, have a few others tasks pertaining to real-life work so you never reboot to use windows, and even relax by playing a few other cool little games with your friends... and more, much more, as we have bundled and tweaked in this ISO cdrom file image the very best we could find on every domain Cool

In order to keep the ISO file size as low as possible, which is a real challenge with a game weighting more than 120Mo, you will find also a lot of useful internet tools to use once connected online to internet. While being able to run on old computers with 256Mo and a linux swap partition, the ISO weights 220Mo and will give entire satisfaction on a 512Mo RAM computer, and even more if you can setup a linux swap partition on a local hard drive or on a USB hard drive.

As many gamers commonly uses webmail tools, we have choose to save space by not installing Thunderbird eMail by default. Instead you will find many links to webmails such as the one put on your desktop pointing to Gmail (google mail) or Goowy from within the firefox bookmarks. We strongly encourage you to use webmails so to save maximum memory on your computer. Moreover these eMail services are great nowadays and will offer you for free the same features as a local eMail software and even more. But, for advanced users with hard-drive installation whom may need it, you can still install Thunderbird by yourselves very easily if your computer is power-full enough. You will find a Thunderbird file on the CD, just click on the icon and Thunderbird will instantly be installed.

Many surprises awaits you at using eXpand - DOFUS edition. We have been taking great care that every little piece of software runs fine on most of the computers sold nowadays. You will be able to listen audio CD, and even record them with ripping software, listen online music from a variety of sources (check the firefox bookmarks Wink ), watch videoclips, and even download them at an incredible speed (yes, we modified firefox "a bit"), check podcasts, or better, videocasts, whatever format it was made, and even rip them to fill your iPod, or burn them ! You will be able to connect to your friends pc and share your screen, so to teach them new tricks, or help them to finish a quest !

For most of the players without computer skills, all you will have to do is boot on the CDROM and wait a few seconds... Well it takes time to load the whole CD into RAM but it is worth waiting, and usually it will boot faster on a 4 years old computer than on windows running on a computer you bought this week ! Imagine what it can do if you run it on an up to date computer Wink

And if you are one of the geeks breathing only when connected to internet, you will find the best computing experience you ever dreamed of. We bundled a complete operating system, you can tweak as much as you want (or as you may need), from wifi to webcam, hard drive installation, partition tools, printer management, a whole bunch of internet tools, with even servers, all with graphic user interface, from bittorrent to VNC server (and client of course), you can even connect remotely to a MS-Windows system ! (in case your best friend needs instant help) And if the system happens to be missing the useful tool you cannot live without, you can import Slackware packages or check the dedicated online repository with the Puppy Package Software Installer. You will find here the very best softwares updated by the cream programmers community ever, and if you feel good, come in and join us ! Help us at building the next releases, whatever your skills are, you are most welcome.

The CD includes also programming tools and extensive documentation ; Read the welcome-text box displayed at first boot to discover more ! We even packed a JAVA runtime environment on the CD in case you need ; If you have enough RAM memory, just run the package file to install JAVA instantly. You will be able to use any of the great JAVA tools or JAVA games available on internet without anything else to do, we have done the setups for you !

The operating system you will be using has been designed to be rock-solid, and has been intensively tested months and years, to bring you the very best computing - and online gaming - experience nowadays. You will see your computer working at speeds you would never dared to asks for. You can ask it to work endlessly months non stop, or shutdown/reboot it whenever you want to power-off your computer and save energy, you will always retrieve a clean, stable and rock-solid complete operating system next time you boot on your CDROM.

With complete built-in security tools, you will never have to wonder about anti-virus upgrades, or spywares detection, or even buying expensive protection softwares or cleaning softwares. Even other companies are dreaming of our firewall tools. Connect to internet, run the firewall with the "AutoMagic" feature, and check the firewall monitor: Complete security.

And if you noticed the background screen is changing from time to time, it is because we designed it this way, along with a few other (good) surprises Smile

I would like to thanks particularly Barry K. creator of the original Puppy Linux distribution, and all the programmers involved in maintaining and testing any software release and giving so much at helping each other.

We wish you the very best at using eXpand - DOFUS edition.
We will come back with other dedicated editions soon, so stay tuned !

As many people will come from the "outside" visit this forum to download eXpand - DOFUS edition, we would like to remind them one last thing:
We give it to you, for FREE. Very Happy
It is not because you are.
It is because we work all for each others,
that is how we dream the world,
we are the Open Source Community Programmers.
So pass the CD to your friends and give it to anyone whom may be asking for it,
just remember: IT IS FREE.

You received it this way, give it this way. Cool

Best regards,
Laurent.

Look forward to it Smile
Have placed news item here . . .

Strangely enough I spent the whole day looking for a Linux virtual world . . .

This might be it Smile

This to me is what Puppy is suited to

Software + OS = boot CD + fun

PostPosted: Mon 23 Apr 2007, 03:13    Post_subject: DOFUS Edition... my son would love this  

Just reading this wiki, it reminds of my 8-year-old son who likes to play computer games. I will download this iso and have my son give it a spin.

I understand that you need a connection to play the game. Is there a standalone version of the game for my son to try while not connected to the Internet?

All the best

Hi,

Yes you will need to have internet connected as there is no stand alone version of Dofus. Dofus is a MMORPG having to be played online.

But anyway, your son may found the CD valuable as there are included others games which can be played offline and are so fun ! Idea

Best regards,
Laurent.

Smile

The game took me a while to set up and it asks for you to pay and a lot of details to set up. Make sure you use a public server to connect and you should be OK and it will be free.

The game looks like a Sims type game to get totally engrossed in.

I connected directly to veoh.com from a desktop icon So instant video clips.

We have a second release - so download again and please report on your experiences. It is an impressive release, deserving some exploration and support.

Hi,

Here is one more hint. On desktop you will an icon for Yahoo videoclips. click it and in the browser window will appear a database with videoclips you can choose whatever you like to watch for free...

But, here is one more thing...
At bottom right of the window you will find a link saying "view TOP100"
click on it, a database appear with the TOP100 video rated, in the column video, click on the first link... A complete video player will appear starting to play high quality video clips the 25 first videos Smile

...And if you wish you can change channels instead of watching the TOP100, just select another channel at the bottom left of this window Exclamation

Have fun,
Laurent.

Hi,

Ankama Games published an upgrade patch to 1.18.2
It is available here:
http://communaute.dofus.fr/mmorpg/download/patch.html

You do not need to re-install the complete package. Just download
this patch and apply it into the dofus directory /usr/local/dofus1.18.1

Best regards,
Laurent.

Hi,

The internet domain I had bought for distribution of eXpand has only expired
since a few days, and I already have requests for some new download links Cool

Thanks to Mark, the ISO files are mirrored here
http://puppyisos.org/isos/2007-01-to-06
except the "large" eXpand office suite which I could not find mirrored anywhere.

All right, due to popular demand here are the new download links for the
original ISO files of eXpand Linux distribution Razz
(that was based on Puppy v2 serie) Use these links first before trying
anything else, that will save the bandwidth of the mirrors.

Keep in mind that even some ISO files might seems you quite large for a
Puppy Linux, it is because the ISO archive contains not only the puplet but
also some extensions so they are directly available from your cdrom Exclamation

IT IS FREE. You received it this way, give it this way. Very Happy

Best regards,
Laurent
