241  Coding Support / Coding Support Desk / Signet Sales HOF...How Do I... on: December 25, 2017, 01:20:01 PM
OK, I want to make it so that my character is visible in the HOF.

I have NONE of the starred SU Flags, so by all rights I ought to appear in the HOF for the Signets but it doesn't and I will be DARNED if I can see where it is eliminating superusers, so that I can alter it to only eliminate certain superusers...ones that have one of the starred flags...which this character does not have.

Yes, the version in the Downloads section.

I'm not sure how that would be the case; I just pulled down lotgd-1.1.2_Dragonprime_Edition_BUGS_FIXED, which still uses mysql_* functions at several points during installation; you actually mentioned this recently. TGTarheel: The post I just linked includes an updated installer from Aeolus that does not use the mysql_* functions.

There are also several PHP 7 efforts in various stages of usability.

So is it correct that the main change in PHP 7 is that you can't use mysql functions?

Would your old database work on a new version of this...or would all your players have to start over and lose everything they got?

Just trying to figure how best to go about this...not happy at all about this, backward compatibility should have been maintained...I know this is not the fault of DP...but rather the geniuses that feel the need to update PHP and "fix" what isn't broken.

Wow a second forest wasn't my intention. I simply would make an extra level in which monsters from the underworld or bonemarrow beast and other creatures turn up; besides some tough opponents and strategic gaming asking events. Best, WW

To be perfectly honest, it would almost be easier to do as a second forest.  But it would be pretty involved.

There is already something like that done, but works only on 1.1.1 and above, I think it is the Desert there, but could be themed any way you wanted.

It would likely give a good starting place for what you want to accomplish.

The other idea I might have in mind (and I'd have to figure how to do this) is to have an event which triggers this second forest (which would be the same forest) but the navigations would be blocked except for search suicidally.  You could also have a nav for Wimp Out...at a cost of charm and a few turns finding your way out.

Yes, the version in the Downloads section.

So 1.1.2 works with PHP 7?

I don't own any server nor game, I'm only a player at Hogwartslive who wants to make the game more interesting, not so repititive; For me, tougher opponents and using more strategy skills as player is the motivation. I'll post the text I wrote as introduction to this "hooror hunt" section in the forest: "In this part of the Forbidden Forest, you'll find hideous creatures that belong in the underworld, or are crowding your nightmares. Over there, the challenges are though, so you need a good mount/broom in good health. The vicious creatures over here are tough opponents, so, this isn't the children's playground.

You'll get less money than in the other sections, but you'll get more risky challenges.

So, will you continue or leave this section?
(This question will be asked the first time after ve'ing when the player enters this section: (cfr. the warning you see when pvp is activated by the player). Perhaps hunt for horrors can also be activated by the player like pvp within the settings?)

Leave:

You return to the forest, and can chose another level of difficulty.

Continue:

You are a brave warrior, hopefully you make a wise decision.
You currently have 10 Horrorhunts left (as long as the number of challenges/creatures is limited; forest fights are used for this).""

I e.g. find it frustrating that in many cases, you can't react as a player: on hogwartslive there's a fairy entangled in a spider's web that is always being freed by the player; this is done automatically, player can't do anything to make a choice. Many times the jewell monster or tatoo monster is 1 level higher than me although I'm fighting in the "search suicidally" section; with a mount in full health I only need 1 round to slay Jewell/tatoo monsters. If the player wants to use more strategy skills or has few turns left but a healthy mount, it would be fantastic if there were a "horror hunt" section. On the halloween village there's no forest section, perhaps we could test this horror section out within this Halloween village before making it available in the forest in general? Concerning badges system: halls of fame are fantastic, but I found out that I need to follow Odysee's routes to find out how I'm doing; I have to search for my own name, to see how I did in Amleine's Music shop e.g. ... The latter has nothing to do with horror hunting. Best, WW

Almost seems to me as if a second "forest.php" could be made where the only choice is a higher-level fight.
And you would get a choice to go to this second "forest" or not as an event in the regular forest.

If I could make banks and stables appear in the underworld, I could probably do this.

But one project at a time...

A random thought for myself on this one...if this was done, every possible forest event would need another hook added to the second forest...so that the events could trigger in the second forest.

But it ought to be do-able.

I went to your site. But before I register I would like to know what's the scenario about. Is it possible you used flash on your site? If yes, this isn't accessible for screenreader users, I'm blind and only can deal with text-based content. Best, WW

My site is geared to be accessible to screenreaders.

There are a couple of modules that could be difficult for blind, like the Signet Series dungeons, but other than that you should not have any problems.

I have a blind player on right now that tells me if things are causing his screenreader problems, and if that happens, I address it.
247  Game Administration, Installation and Configuration / Game Administration Chat / PHP 7?? on: December 17, 2017, 11:22:32 AM
Is there currently any version of the core game engine that works with PHP 7?

Totally curious.
248  Modules, Themes and other customizations for your game / Completed Modules for version 1.x.x / Re: Frosty Village Special - Now with Basic Alignment! on: December 17, 2017, 11:21:21 AM
They currently don't use frosty the snowman, they did last christmas time; not now; this year it seems there also won't be a christmas tree contest; I didn't find Frosty too. But I think they didn't use the most recent version last year. Are you also on Hogwartslive? If yes, you could me send a friendship request over there, same username as here. But stayin on topic over Frosty: I still regret the fact that only turns can be used for helping that crying girl, although gems and gold are available. Best, WW

Not currently on Hogwarts Live as I have my own server, plus I am on Central and two others, LOL.

They are using Chris Vondran's Alignment module on Hogwarts.  Version 1.82.

And I do not see a Frosty event being used there at all...obviously the name might be different because the theme, but I do not see any module by Talisman that would seem to correspond in terms of version numbers.

Even when themes are changed, authorship credit is still required.

tgTarheel you are the first one that is reacting to my suggestions concerning tips, proposals for coding etc. Thanks for this. We will see what we can do together. Best, WW

Happy to help, will enjoy the collaboration.

Since the Save Fairy suggestion WAS my idea originally anyway... (Kalisiin is my older name here, now I code as TGTarheel...back then I was not "out" but now I am)
251  Game Administration, Installation and Configuration / The Idea Place / Re: questions about existing modules +suggestions on: December 14, 2017, 08:19:28 AM
Oh thanks for this info. Best, WW

Well, still working on the Fairy one.  Seeing as it was originally my suggestion...caused me to jump in and offer help.

After that, I may help with others.  Have to see.

A lot of the original programmers are no longer active in the LOTGD universe, having moved on to other things.

Agree with what phu said about knowing your strengths.  I happen to be an okay coder, not great, and very sloppy, but I can usually get something to do what I wanted.

Most actual coders would look at my work, laugh, and get it to do the same thing in half the code lines, but oh well.
252  Coding Support / Coding Support Desk / Re: Witches Garden/Potion Brewing for Magical Arena on: December 14, 2017, 08:14:39 AM
I'm afraid I can't follow; don't know the village you are talking about, nor can find out where to look; I already saw the modules list, but as far as I can remember, the battle arena isn't on the core modules list, Huh What the hell is Brazoria? Knockturn Alley is an alley near Diagon Alley the most important of the 2 shopping area's in London for wizards; Knockturn is devoted to the dark arts, cfr. the hp-lexicon for more info www.hp-lexicon.org But I have the feeling we are talking besides each other, I'm afraid. Sorry. Best, WW

Brazoia is on MY SERVER.  Kalisiin.com
I am suggesting you create a character on MY site.  Then check out the town I told you and the Battle Arena there.
Then tell me if you have something similar at Hogwarts LIve.

253  Game Administration, Installation and Configuration / The Idea Place / Re: questions about existing modules +suggestions on: December 13, 2017, 09:45:41 AM
thanks, although I don't understand it all. I suppose that this all depends on what the coder of the game changed on the basically delivered code for fitting it in it's game. Thanks, WW

If you are interested in learning some code...the best way is to find something that works and then reverse-engineer it to do what you want it to do.

Figure out the mechanics.  This is how I taught myself.

I am a very sloppy coder, and not all that good, compared to others here, but I have managed a few things!
254  Coding Support / Coding Support Desk / Re: Witches Garden/Potion Brewing for Magical Arena on: December 13, 2017, 09:43:41 AM
That surely would interest me if this module also were on Hogwartslive. The only arena I see on Hogwartslive however, besides the pvp battle arena, is the Battle arena in Knockturn Alley where I can fight bad wizards =death eaters; I can fight the deatheater with level 6 without any problem, but at level 7 I am killed most of the time. Exchanging things aren't necessary within this scenario; but if there were a potion brewing module on hl, I surely would be interested in a possibility to exchange ingredients. The difficulty is, I can't find out which modules are used on hogwartslive, nor how they are modified, and I also don't know if the current staff on hl is following this forum and using the most recent versions of all modules they use. Best, WW

Come to my ite and look around.
The module in question is called Battle Arena, and, in my server, it is in the town of Brazoria.

Tell me if that looks similar to anything at Hogwarts Live.  Then you will know!!
The Battle Arena is one of those publicly-released modules which may be found on many sites...though the theme might have changed on Hogwarts Live to fit in the theme of Hogwarts, but the mechanics should be similar.

I agree with previous poster: "Just a suggestion here...how about giving the player a choice whether or not to save...with the choice affecting alignment...and some amusing sayings as a result of the choices...and a possible battle with a really nasty Spider who doesn't appreciate you coming by and depriving it of it's food?"
I also had written a scenario for similar actions, but I didn't include the fight with the spider. Good suggestion, though. I didn't code the thing, I simply wrote a draft scenario. If you are interested in coding this suggestions, I can send you what I have and include the spider's fight too, eventually. Best, WW

That sounds like a good idea.

I would enjoy developing this.
