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.
