WinRaR security alert.

If anyone is using WinRaR, you need to update to the latest version. A vulnerability was found in the ACE compressed file format that allows any file being decompressed from an ACE archive to escape from the target directory and traverse backward up the directory tree, otherwise known as an "absolut...

Re: [const] Directory

Though I admit I have limited knowledge of programming languages, I am not aware of any language that allows this, no compiled language anyway.

Re: [const] Directory

Ah. Now I understand. You want to use a string constant as part of the include statement. This is interesting but I am not sure it is possible currently because of the way eCompile works.

Re: [const] Directory

If this is a feature request I do not understand. You can define a constant like that in your scripts. Maybe I am missing something.

Re: olduo.com

Thank you for your contribution!

The flying videos are impressive. I have not looked at the code yet. The problem being only one person is I can only do one thing at a time. :)

Obviously, you used a custom client or so it appears. If you did use a custom client, which one did you use?

Re: Yukiko's, possibly, helpful or, maybe, little known tips.

This tip was pointed out to me today by Turley. We all are in the practice of writing something such as the following to avoid the "Unused variable..." warning from eCompile: program onInsert( mobile, container, move_type, insert_type, adding_item, existing_stack, amount_to_add ) //Avoid compiler wa...

Re: Crash when attempting to log-in.

This "bug" had me wondering if I either had some mischievous software on my system or possibly a bad RAM stick. Poor Turley had thought something in the Modern Distro, to which I had added some new packages, might have uncovered a previously unknown bug in the Core. After two days of trying to track...

Officially supported Distros.

I feel a need to clarify which Distros (with an uppercase 'D') are currently supported by the POL Distro Team. There are two (2), the Classic Distro and the Modern Distro. They can be found on the Downloads page. The Classic Distro is based on the POL 095 Distro but has been updated internally to ru...

However, I am going to explain here a little of how the Configurator works On start-up it reads the default cfg files that are supplied with it. Those files are pol.cfg, combat.cfg, ...

Re: [BUG] Character crash walking

If you are using the FANTASIA-DISTRO-099-2018-07-08 script set then that could be your problem. That was a buggy set of scripts and should have never been promoted as the Distro. It is no longer officially supported by the POL Distro team. The Classic Distro which can be found on the Downloads page ...

I have a set of minimal scripts that will let you log in and walk around. That is all you can do with what I have. :P There are no AI or combat or any other scripts. If you want them, let me know.

Re: What do the Min and Max settings for X and Y do for gumps in an itemdesc file?

Ah. So they are analogous to defaults when dropped on a "closed" container. Too bad the client doesn't allow modifying the actual drop area for the gump.

Thank you for your contribution. I wish I had known you wanted a minimal set of scripts to just log-in because I could have provided it for you but this did provide you a learning experience. :)

What do the Min and Max settings for X and Y do for gumps in an itemdesc file?

I want to get an item to drop within a specific boundary of a particular open container's gump. I thought this was accomplished by manipulating the MinX, MaxX, MinY, and MaxY settings for the container's gump entry in an itemdesc.cfg file. For example: MinX 8 MaxX 40 MinY 0 MaxY 100 I have adjusted ...

You can set the encryption to the client version in a listener in uoclient.cfg file. There should not be a need to decrypt the client.
