Does anyone know if the open sourcing of URU will bring fixes to the Cyan hosted version of the game such as the Gahreesen Wall game, the Minkata Sparklie or the Maintainers Suits? I've heard people talk about the sparklie being fixed but it wasn't specified if it would be a fix on a shard (like MOSS of Dirtsand) or on Cyan's server.

Cyan currently has no solid plan for getting fixes from the community into MOULagain. This may change in the future, or it may not. We'll have to see what happens.

The ball is entirely in Cyan's court here.

One can make some assumptions about what will happen.

Cyan is short on time and money for Myst-Uru projects. We also know they like the flexibility to change their plans. So, it is doubtful they will setup a system that places them in any position to have to do something or require they assign labor to a task or restricts their options. I find it hard to imagine they will setup any formal system beyond OpenUru.org (OU). The fans will pretty much run OU.

As code is developed at OU & GoW and MOSS servers are brought up, we'll see bug fixes posted and added into CWE and MOSS. Include in 'bug fixes' the Maintainers' Wall and similar things. As those fixes are proven, I would not be surprised to see Cyan quietly take copies, check them out and merge them into their code.

Now that the code is open source, in many ways Cyan becomes simply another member in the community. They do own and control the Myst assets and story. But, they have given the CWE and Plugin to the community. They are no longer the sole owners. They have the same rights to fan created code as any other fan.

They could surprise us and set up some formal plan. I doubt they will.

I believe their may be a chance that somebody in the Myst community might be able to fix the Gahreesen Wall game, however whether it shows up in the game engine that open source is using is another story. Only time will tell, and where keeping our fingers crossed

That might be possible, depending on where the code that was buggy is. If it's in the client and/or Python files, it can be fixed and maybe at some point Cyan will grab that, and modify Gahreesen so we can access the wall.

A patch for the sparklie was sent to Cyan a long time ago, but they haven't implemented it yet. As for the suits, wouldn't that require modification of the actual Age file?

There's topics on the GoW about possibly fixing the wall but it appears the current fix is for the Drizzle based URU clients. As for the other things like the sparklie, I sure hope Cyan adds the patch.
