Site Pages    
Welcome to the Issho homepage. Through this site, communications may be kept about various Mabinogi aspects as well as some non-game-related fun. While this site is first and foremost for guild member use, I welcome non-members to view the site and perhaps that will inspire them to join, or at least understand Mabinogi a little better beyond the official wiki and forums.

I strongly recommend you read the entry "About Issho..." first before doing anything else.

Thank you very much for visiting our Guild site. I hope it is useful and enjoyable.
Also, while I do not require guild members to join the site as well, it is strongly recommended that they do so.

Milestones and Memories...

A little over two years have passed since Issho was founded. Many members have come and gone, experienced good and bad times together. Issho again finds new life with the help of great friends, both new and old. May Issho see a thriving future and have many more memories to keep. We are together; we are Issho.

Guild Activity...

djsquelch, Dec 9, 13 2:06 AM.
This policy is being re-enforced. I have written about it in more than one section. Please be sure to refer to it for more details. It is about the only guild requirement I have. After four weeks of consecutive inactivity without any contact from a member, then the character is officially inactive and is dismissed. It is a fair policy. I do allow exceptions.

Staring at a list of inactive members when one is a leader or active member is a sad and frustrating thing so enforcing activity is also a way of preserving the guild. As stated if it's something you know that's going to happen, let me know and similarly if it's something that's beyond your control and you wish to rejoin, then please contact me. I want active people in my guild. A list that is full in inactive players is so disheartening, no matter how much one may be a friend in addition to being a member. I have to draw a line at some point if I haven't heard from someone within so much time. Please understand. If you can work with me on this policy, then I can work with you. I am rather flexible, actually.

No More Guild Goals...

djsquelch, Dec 6, 13 3:47 AM.
The guild has been expanded to receive as many members as possible.
The guild stone has been upgraded to its final stage.
Extra features to enhance guild functionality have been secured.

Members only need to concentrate on the guild mission now- be nice, work on characters, help each other, and have fun.

Also, I would like to remind everyone that the guild is now set to private. Membership is by invitation only now. More than ever, I am looking for decent people who can play regularly.

Guild Chat does not work, but other forms of communication do...

djsquelch, Aug 7, 13 6:34 AM.
This is an old issue that i have reported multiple times. It has not been fixed, nor addressed by those to whom I have reported this issue. When I first made the site, it worked, then it only partially worked, and now it doesn't work at all on Mac or PC, Firefox, Safari, or Explorer. Clicking on guild chat brings up a window with the following text:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> 
        <customErrors mode="Off"/> 

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> 
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/> 


The text above means nothing to me, but knowing others had this issue as well, I am certain this is not an issue I can correct on my end. In the meantime, please feel free to communicate via the ShoutBox, the forums, and the in-site mail system.

I am back in Mabi again...

Thanks to a friend of mine and some extra searching online, I arrived at a quick fix for my problem.
According to various things I heard, Nexon may or may not allow the use of virtual machines and supposedly installed something in their software in 2011 that should have already prevented the use of virtual machines, however I can say that was not effective since I was connecting. There was also talk of Nexon employing new security measures to prevent multi-clienting on the same computer, which is something I do not do, yet what ever the new change was it affected me as well- most likely the Black Cipher thing they just added. Seems like a pain in the neck if terminating a process during a freeze could flag your account. It also was apparent that another Mac user with Parallels was having the same issue I was. I'd say if Nexon really wanted to rake in the money they would hurry up and release Mabinogi to run on Macs as well. The following instructions below are steps I found online to allow VMWare Fusion with a Windows OS to play Mabinogi without connection error. I will say though that this is not a perfect fix- after I log in to the Mabinogi site online and press the "Play" button, the button will not work, nor will the green square toward the left. Instead, I need to go to my hard drive and open the Mabinogi Application from there in order to start the game. It's a hassle because it involves more steps, But at least I am able to get on and reach the people whom I can only reach from within the game.

VMWare Fusion (Mac Users):
From Fusion's menu bar, click Window > Virtual Machine Library.
In the left column, Ctrl+click the virtual machine and click Show in Finder.
Ctrl+click the revealed package (ending in .vmwarevm) and click Show Package Contents.
Ctrl+click the file ending in .vmx and choose Open With > Other.
Navigate to TextEdit and click Choose.
You can now add or edit lines lines as needed.

VMWare Player (Non Workstation/PC Users): Look for ".VMware virtual machine configuration" instead of ".vmx".

Step Two: Add the following line to the bottom of the list. Once you are done, save and close the .vmx file.
monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = "true"

Step Three: Power on the virtual machine and (INSIDE the Virtual Machine, not the host OS) go to Start, Run, Regedit and go to this directory:

Step Four:
Once you have the folder "0000" highlighted, right click "DriverDesc" and click modify. Once you have done that, erase the value data (On Windows XP SP3, mine was named VMWare SVGA II) and click ok. On Windows 7, it should be VMWare SVGA 3D or something along those lines.

Connectivity issues for some. Please read further in the forums.

Issho had a new officer and is looking to recruit active, committed members. Huzzah! More details in the forums...

Connectivity to Mabinogi is a known issue for many since the release of the ninja talent. Stay patient and keep trying.
