In that case I guess you're right, we're pretty much out of luck.

Well, we had a Rosetta Tablet. :wink:

But I agree, it would be a nice thing to have. Though I'd settle on at least knowing some basics of the Bahro "language." Take the D'ni language for example. We do know a lot of it, but it's far from enough to hold a conversation with anyone speaking fluent duck-knee. I'm not saying I want a ton of info dropped on us at once, but having bits and piece of the language revealed to us over time like with D'ni, that'd be pretty cool.

Yay! There is no way to describe how exciting it was for me to see that pic :D Sitting here at work agape, trying to hide my expression! I'm not even sure why I care so much but yay! This is very interesting!

Plus I agree that this really is a bit of a fatal blow for those who think they can make conclusions about the game from poking around in its files.

No... It's a fatal blow for those who think they can make conclusions without poking ENOUGH in the data files. It was abundantly clear that it was possible, if you looked.

1. NB01BahroShout.ogg
2. References to the switch in the .elf files
3. Probably a texture and model in one of the .prp files for the hood

oh to the previous poster who said is there even bahro files in the game files.

There is no indication that this picture was even taken on the live servers :) probably an internal server at cyan

No. There is a lot of indication. It's just not intrinsic. The indication is in the fact that there were OTHERS who say they saw Bahros IN THE EXACT SAME SPOT.

I wasn't trying to pass that off as canon, that's just me being sarcastic. :)

And it's not like that thing helped us communicate with the Bahro anyways (although communicating and controlling the Bahro was it's purpose, we just didn't get to).

By the by, do we know if anyone besides a ResEng actually saw a Bahro? Minus the whole "Bahro came to my Relto" thing, that is. (I'm not asking for names BTW, just if there are/how many one's heard it from.) Because although it's great no matter how Cyan is trying to tell us that there are Bahro in the 'hoods, I can't imagine how excited someone would get seeing one in their 'hood.

Quite possibly they might not have the Bahro fully "configured" and so thus they had a ResEng see it and snap a pic, it might not have even been moving.

I wonder if when the Bahro get really involved in the story if they'll still just be auto-controlled, or if Cyan will have some of their people using Bahro avatars. :?

I am with you. I've seen too many bigfoot and Nessi pics to buy into this that quickly.

A single pic with NO attribution does not (to me) mean it is proof positive.

I'd also like a link to the quote from GreyDragon mentioned earlier. I don't recall the reference they made.

The thing is though, that only Cyan would be able to put faked pictures, or any picture not from the MOUL server on a KI. That may have been what they did, although either way it most likely means that we'll start seeing them soon as well.

i'm sure its real

Cyan did it on a private server so they didn't have to update the game client to get the picture out thats all

It doesn't sound like Cyan. Cyan doesn't cheat or foul us.

its not a cheat. I could be wrong in this. Its just its the most likely explanation for why they could have done it and us not having bahro game files

PAY ATTENTION!

There ARE Bahro game data files!

Why do you think that the game doesn't contain Bahro data? Did you dissemble the game files?
