Re: HELP using acct.move_char

I am using the command regularly and it does sent the character to the next available slot.

Have you run menu "a" first?
You need to generate the config files and the realms before you can start the server.

Is there a new function or variable declaration in uo.em that is being used in your script?

HELP using acct.move_char

I am running some tests on the account method .move_char, but I cannot see how it could work properly. Logically to make this work you need source account, source index, destination account, destination index. The actual method and parameters are: Account.move_char(string destacctname, integer slot)...

Re: Possible to use two maps on 095?

A thought - you can dump the T2A area and put a fairly decent area down the bottom right of the OSI map below the dungeons.

The decimal / hex numbering is continuing to be awkward. Body and bodyconv both work in decimal numbers, as does your animations tab, but the dress tab works exclusively in hex.

Has anyone had any success getting a font to work with SendSysMessageCL?? I guess it means Unicode fonts which are different from the ascii fonts. The v5 client has a file for each of the 6 unicode fonts and the client uses these and they are different. I expected SendSysMessageCL to be able to use ...

Re: Allow /Disallow new character

Now I have a slightly more interesting thing... :) We are allowing more than one character per account but only after they achieve a certain point in the game. So.... Gnafu's idea is now of interest. Since we don't have CanCreate (looks at MuadDib), is it really feasible to have OnCreate have a line...

I am trying to stop a problem on my shard whereby a player will create a new character, store the starter equipment, delete the character, and repeat many times to build up a stash of money and things.

Hard typing

Here is an eScript feature request that might just polarise the whole community- hard typing. I just had a potential scripter tell me he didn't want to learn eScript because it doesn't have hard typing and it is an omission that caused him to have a lot of troubles debugging a script.

Edwards - the tooltips for mouse hovering over the gump are in the clilocs. That's all I did visually, although I know Luth actually played around with editing the gump itself to make better pictures too. You can do a lot with the status gump!

Then along comes this huge thing that made us hate it at first sight and not only that there wasn't anywhere to put it on the desktop! But then we ...

I wonder if you have this enabled as per the core-changes: 08-15 Austin: Added : Setting for servspecopt.cfg 'ScriptedAttackChecks' Default is disabled. If enabled, the combat hook must check distance, line of sight, visibility and if both combatants are alive.

Re: UOFiddler (ex UOViewer) (ex InsideUO alternative)

Being able to copy rectangles from one map to another is a brave feature to add. Well done :)

Do the source maps need to have any special characteristics - eg must be compatible map0, map2, map3, or map4? From what I know the statics files are tricky with other custom sizes.

WoD has the chessboard and pieces (gumps). No multiplayer games with enforced rules though.
The RunUO chess game is brilliant though.
