Re: Not able to login from local network

There is no second shard unless you run a second instance of POL. Do you mean a different realm (map)? The second entry in the servers.cfg should still connect you to the same shard, it just goes through a different internet route. You can't connect from your public IP to your public IP directly whi...

Re: Not able to login from local network

I believe you need to define a "separate server" for LAN connections in servers.cfg. I had this entry in my servers.cfg for logging in on the same computer. You'll have to change the IP and IPMatch fields so they match up to your LAN. Name field doesn't matter and the port should be the sa...

Re: Core error message - what does it mean, what triggers it?

It's mainly caused by lag. It means they tried to drop an item that they didn't pick up. If they pick up an item and then drop it quick enough during lag, the drop packet might arrive before the pick up packet causing the error. If it happens quickly in succession for one character, it could be a ma...

Good to see you're dabbling with the scripting and getting it together. As always, if you get stuck, you can ask on the discord channels or drop me a pm. Work is getting lighter again so I might not be half asleep when responding :D

Re: error testing pol with TPC

"bad version number xx" for the scripts means they were compiled for a different version of POL. Any time you change POL versions, you must also replace the em files and ecompile with the one that comes with that version then force a recompile of ALL of your scripts.

Re: World of Dreams for Pol 097 Ready For Download!

Look around in your itemdesc.cfg for the entry

Code: Select all

Container 0x0EFA
Change it to

Code: Select all

Spellbook 0x0EFA
also within the entry, you should define the SpellType as "magic"

Code: Select all

Spellbook 0x0EFA
{

	Spelltype		magic

Re: AddAmount() renovation

But for AddAmount(), you're already passing an item reference so you already have it and don't need a new one whereas with the Create* commands, the item didn't previously exist.

Re: Setting up a Windows POL server. A tutorial.

a lot of ecl files don't exist... did you compile your scripts? No matter which scriptbase you're using, you must run eCompile from the version of POL you're using. If you change versions at all, you have to recompile the scripts.

Re: [const] Directory

This won't work. eCompile grabs the includes before assigning constants for the very reason that includes can contain constants. It doesn't go through includes one at a time and assign the constants since it needs to know all of the functions and constants available to it before it begins to process...

Sysload gives you the CPU usage and I believe the severity is in parentheses. The lower this number is the better. cputime is how much processor time POL is using.

Re: Count a specific item

POL has no direct function to list all of the items on the server and trying to do the set of functions to list everything would likely freeze your server for a while. The best thing you can do is write something that reads items.txt directly.
