Oh sweet! This means Second Chance is coming very soon!

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

We are planning for both of them to start at the same time. So, if someone started following us after the Kickstarter, or donated a smaller amount, then the opportunity will be coming around very soon.

Is one of the improvements going to be a place to securely upload screencaps so that we don't have to worry about third party hosting when we post to the beta boards?

Well deserved congratulations

Well deserved congratulations. This is a huge step or the team and maybe just as big of a step, if not bigger, for the fan-base in general. So, kudos, seriously.

Just as a point of clarification, where does Issue #0 fit into this? The Primer update had the crowdfunder after Issue #0 release, but it wasn't mentioned in this update and the second chance will be in the next few weeks. I'm assuming it's just different vocabulary maybe. But there is no mention of the chat zone either, so maybe this isn't Issue #0? Is Issue #0 now after second chance?

Compulsively clicking the refresh button until the next update.

You are correct. We are bringing the Second Chance campaign forward, and the full Issue #0 release will be afterward. This first release is an intermediate step that will make it easier to distribute content down the road.

Also, I should say it's a chance for us to do something we've wanted to do for a long time. Putting the Avatar Builder into everyone's hands.

Congratulations you guys! This is extremely exciting news and I cannot wait to get my hands on the Avatar Builder. It's fantastic that you guys are going to allow us to share screenshots of all our creations.
I also look forward to the Second Chance and Issue 0 that are now that much closer. ^_^

Call this an ashcan. It's not

Call this an ashcan. It's not a full issue, and there will be four full stages before issue 1.
At my dayjob, so I'm going to be a bit imprecise about it, but our rough goal is releasing multiplayer/chat, combat, and missions, each as a stage:
Titan Create, Titan Chat, Titan Combat, and Titan Quest. (Combat and Quest may be reversed).
Once all that is completely together, we'll have officially hit the full issue 0 and launch.
Each of these stages will obviously have patches and updates as we get 'em all together.
So consider what you have now the preliminary Limited Series to make sure the title has the legs to go the distance.

Well then, let's not worry about my question. I'll put bug shots in my stash, and the ones I'm happy with I'll just use my DA folder, and link to them both from the forums here!

Oh MAN I am PUMPED. I hope I’ll get the opportunity to stick my toes in sooner rather than later. I backed on day one of the Kickstarter and have been waiting for this moment since even before that.

I’m so proud of how much you guys have toiled to get this together. I know there have been setbacks and pitfalls and, as I like to put it... “learning experiences.” But it’s nice to see things really starting to payoff.

I backed at the geocaching

I backed at the geocaching level.
1. When in the path to issue 0 should those of us at this level anticipate a survey for this reward?
2. Since this level and above was rewarded 2 copies, how will the launcher delivery guarantee that backers can utilize both copies in their household OR is this launcher on a looser restriction than drm restricts?
3. Can anyone share details on how the “waves” will be decided and/or on what sort of frequency waves of invites will be sent?

2: When we do the Fly Free pass, we'll add a coupon/code to create a second account.
3: At the moment, it's a bit bandwidth restricted, so as fast as we can, really.

And I’m conscious that is an estimate based on an estimate for a timetable. :)

Here’s hoping that the fly free pass is with or soon after the other deliverables <3

At first the Second Chance store will be it's own thing. In the future, we'll probably add a link from the forums. The overall website rework will still happen, but one or two things have just moved higher on the priority list.

This really is exciting news! Congratulations MWM, I can't wait till the Second Chance begins so I can finally dust off the bit of money I planned on spending toward it all these years! While it sucks that the Second Chance won't include the add-ons offered in the original Kickstarter like Iconic where it allows the player to work with a dev to design a unique emblem specially made for them, I'm just as glad that the wait is finally over and look forward to seeing what is to come in the following weeks!

Congratulations MWM!

Congratulations MWM!

This is so incredibly exciting! I cannot wait to get my hands on the chargen and start molding whatever character(s) i'll be starting the game with.

But, along with others wondering when their perks will happen, i'm also curious about I Know A Guy. I've figured all along that it would probably be after we got our hands on the chargen, since that's how i imagined we'd be creating the NPCs. I'm assuming the perk will start happening after the 2 week waves have ended. I'm just not sure how long after that to expect to hear from you guys.

I don't know, i'm just super excited and wanted to press a bunch of letters on the keyboard to talk about it because YAY!!!

Well, yay! Finally! I am

Well, yay! Finally! I am now officially awaiting the chance to contribute to second chance. I have a few questions though.

1. Will there be another official announcement that you have announced the second chance complete with links to where to go and contribute and such?
2. I was not in original kickstarter so I have no idea what different packages were available. So, for the second chance, what different packages will be available? Or is it too early?
3. This is not a question but an observation and contradiction to warcabbit. He said this isn't a big moment of victory. Wrong. This is a huge moment of victory. Now people will have something to look at and tinker with.

Have to admit that my excitement for this second chance rollout is amplified a bit due to the HC and being able to play CoH but that is purely nostalgia. Getting my hands on a modern superhero game is what all this waiting has been about. I love City of Heroes, warts and all, but a fresh game is gonna be awesome to try out.

edit: hmm seems like I need to change my signature. RIP just doesn't work anymore.

RIP City of Heroes

2. Some of the original KS packages will be included in Second Chance. We will have a few of those that will be limited quantities. We'll get you all a full list when SC rolls out.

3. It's taken us a while to get here, but this is just the beginning.

At first the Second Chance store will be it's own thing. In the future, we'll probably add a link from the forums. The overall website rework will still happen, but one or two things have just moved higher on the priority list.

Yeah, there's one of me, and the various folks who offered to help with the web site over the past couple years decided to pursue other work instead. So I had to pick a site, and the one that got you a game sooner won. We regret the inconvenience.

Hopefully the store doesn't blow up and I'll have time to resume main site development. I am going to be reusing a bunch of code developed for the store for the new site (e.g. the registration/login/user settings stuff), so there's that. But it'll be a few more months at least until we get this site overhauled. And there's a discussion going about whether to import this site's posts, or just archive it into a read-only site (the industry standard practice). Not sure how well bookmarks will survive either way.

To clarify Bullfrog's post, there will be a link to the store in the menus on this site. (There already is a link on the Store back to this site: "City of Titans" -> "Main Site".) We'll probably take the existing "Merchandise" and new "Store" items and move them into a combined menu ("Kewlewt"?). But the store has its own logins, and we recommend that your store login names be different from your forum names. We don't have anything fancy like 2FA in place yet (mostly because most options suck; text messages can be intercepted, since they have all the security of a postcard, and on the other hand I don't feel like requiring Google Authenticator).

That said, there are longer-range plans to link your store and forum accounts, to automate things like "this backer level gives you that badge", but initially we'll have to do it by hand. When we implement linking, it'll just be a matter of logging into your store account, clicking "Link My CoT Website Account", then typing in your forum name and password to prove you're you.

Has anyone seen my mind? It was right here...

This is FANTASTIC news guys!!! Been a long time lurker and rarely posted on the boards but been keeping up-to-date on everything over the years. Regrettably I only found out about this project shortly after the original Kickstarter closed, so I'm really glad for a second shot at contributing. I know there is still a mountain of work ahead of the team, but know that we have your backs 100%.

Can't wait to join all the other Heroes (and Villains) in Titan City once this project becomes live!

I was just playing with my wife and son on Homecoming and my son was saying how playing CoH just makes him want CoT even more.

Good work, y'all.

Wowowow This is fantastic! Congrats you guys. Seriously well done. I always held the faith, and seeing that faith start to pay off is such a reward onto itself. I'm happy to hear the second chance is close too. I was a broke college student when the first KS was a thing so I didn't have the opportunity to donate. Now I'm a slightly less broke out of college kid who's ready to donate. I'M SO EXCITED

So, speaking seriously (^^)

So, speaking seriously to the devs (^^) when can we help translate the game in other langages ? :) At least, the UI and all the main stuff like powers, description, etc
This is a really serious question as i saw (french) people playing on Homecoming but complaining it's difficult to play in US. Our partial translation of the UI in French (with our Vigilance Team) helped, at least, people to create their character and make it like they want.

As someone whom was critical

As someone whom was critical as of late, gotta give props to the team for working hard.

The next few weeks? Looks like you guys may beat SoH out the gate for their release, which was pushed back to November. Hoping to see a lot of screens or videos of this, that is, if testers are allowed. Things have just got interesting, real interesting.

Long time coming for backers, was it 2013 until now? I bet it will be worth the wait.

As a child, I thought my name was handsome, cause that is what everyone called me.

My forum account hit its 6 year anniversary a few days ago.

It just occurred to me that my youngest might be able to play this game at release, and she was born a year after the Kickstarter.

Hey guys,

Hey guys,

Been lurking around for years, but finally decided to do an account. This update is amazing, feels good to see it all coming along.

I'll ask the question because I have been looking too much at the powersets for launch and I can't wait to get more infos. Do we have more paper infos about the power trees that you aim to put at launch / the powers animations skin that you wanted to implement? (If it is still a thing, haven't heard about that for a while)

Keep up the good work. I'm becoming more and more excited for the game!

Being in a cyber-security class right now, I'm all to familiar with the U2F and how SMS authentication is on it's way out, and mostly not used anymore. It will be interesting to see what you end up going with.

As one of the few, the proud,

As one of the few, the proud, the "forumite kickstarter backers" I got an email about the costume editor tool and, having installed it, when I double-click the icon, it gives me a "cannot find mfc140u.dll" error. I looked up this error on YouTube and found that the fix is to get, from Microsoft, the "Redistributable for Visual C++ 2015", which I did. That didn't fix the problem. So I'm still left in the frustrating state of being one of the chosen few, having the installer, and it doesn't even run. This, to me, is a pretty annoying bug that I hope we can get fixed sooner rather than later.

Hopefully, if and when the Costume Creator goes "wide release" and can be downloaded off of this website, I may be able to get it to work. Fingers crossed.

Might be a 32 vs 64 bit issue. From the Microsoft website here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=48145
1 Press download buton
2 select "vc_redist.x86.exe" if that is the version you didn't grab, or the other if it is.
3 Next
4 Install or reinstall c++ package

Instructions are a bit old so I will check in a bit as well.

I'm at work so Ill look at

I'm at work so Ill look at this when I get home tonight, and thanks Doc. I DID check to make sure I had 64-bit Windows 10 before downloading, but I might have gotten the wrong thing, for all I know, so thanks for the link. Despite enjoying the heck out of computer games, I'm no programmer nor am I any kind of IT person. I do not have any anti-virusware installed on the computer in question on purpose, but if there's any way any kind of Window inherent virus/malware/firewall stuff could be causing this, please let me know and I'll look at that too. It's possible my computer may have even come with McAffee or something that I didn't check for. Its not state-of-the-art, but I did buy it recently. The only app I have installed on it right now is Tequila, which runs just fine.

Specifically, check to see if these DLLs are in the right place.

For 64-Bit Windows

Download the 32-Bit + 64-Bit version of MFC140u.dll

Paste the MFC140u.dll (64 Bit) into: C:/Windows/System32
Paste the MFC140u.dll (32 Bit) into: C:/Windows/SysWOW64

Then reboot.
