Enhance your Gameplay
Have you ever had problems locating your corpse? Finding your
friends? Sifting out the good loot from the bad? Keeping track of when
your buffs and debuffs will wear off? Running out of components in the
middle of a battle? Finding cooking, alchemy and fletching items? A
program called Decal and a number of plugins designed to run inside of
Decal can help you deal with these problems (and many more) from WITHIN
The first step to success is making sure your computer and connection
are ready to handle running a third party program inside of Asheron's
Call. It is safe to say the following computer should be the minimum
requirements for attempting this setup.
- Pentium II 300mhz
- 3DFX Voodoo 3
- 128MB RAM
- 56K Modem with 40kbps+ connection
- 800 x 600 resolution
- 15" Monitor
Slow connections and slow computers will only become even worse when
you have Decal and friends sniffing out information and displaying it
live, on-screen while you are playing Asheron's Call. For those of you
with Pentium III computers, GeForce graphics, 256MB of RAM and broadband
Internet connections - you really have nothing to worry about.
Download and Install Decal.
Downloading and installing decal is a relatively painless process.
Simply visit the the Decal homepage,
download the latest version of Decal and the Microsoft Windows Installer,
install the Installer update first (.MSI file), reboot and then install Decal.
This program does nothing for your gaming experience by itself - but it does
allow other programs to "plug in" to your Asheron's Call.
Choose your Plugins.
Each of the following programs work on "most" computer configurations.
Sometimes certain plugins just will not work with you software and hardware
combination that you have chosen to play with. After downloading your
favorites, make sure you have Asheron's Call and Decal shutdown before
you begin installing.
