At the moment I have time space to talk a little bit. So let's address to

Aside from there being no login, is there any other way to determine if the game is online or offline?


There are clear signs for an online visit in-game:

  • When you link into an Age the black loading screen with its progress bars says "Preparing to link..." or "Linking to Age...". I never saw this in an offline version.
  • When you open the large KI:
    • The right bottom corner says (in case of TOC): "Member of TOC Bevin Neighborhood". (This will be fix until we are able to change the neighborhood in TPOTS some day...dependend on an on-going Offline-KI developement)
    • Your KI ID will be (in most cases) different from #00020001 (which is a fix number in the offline version as far as I experienced)

Maybe there are more points, these three points were the first I thought of spontaneously.

These are good points. It also occurred to that hoods or bevins belonging to other users don't show in Nexus

I am now on reinstall number five. However, this time I backed up the entire tpots folder from install number four.
The only thing I did different this time was not installing the no-CD patch from Drizzle. I now have the same problem as Ehren. I can't link to the city from the city book, bevin book room, or nexus.
I am going to copy over the files save from install four and continue offline until someone has an answer.

BTW, On one of my previous installs, I had the mushrooms working in my relto. I don't know how I did it. They're beautiful. They form a circle around the original link-in point (next to dock if installed) when I start the game.
