Re: Our "favourite" eCompile errors.

Using a reserved word in the function definition doesn't expressly say that the word is reserved. code example: use cfgfile; use uo; use os; include "include/client"; program close_door(downto) error example: Compiling: \pkg\items\doors\closeDoor.src Expected arguments or right-paren in program argl...

Recently raised by Arvax on Discord, and then solved by Turley, the use of the names Check and Start as function names is not allowed although they are not in the reserved words list.

Re: POL100 - 3rd Party Feature Request.

My reply to that would be along the lines of, the clients only offer script base support because there isn't core based support. Maybe you guys are correct and if it can be done in script then its easier to just do there. Another pro which i don't think i had on that original list was that its ease ...

POL100 - 3rd Party Feature Request.

Firstly, there isn't a POL100 development board yet so this is going here. After recent investigation into the OrionUO Client by Yukiko it raise my interest in some of these 3rd party clients/client injectors. A few of them now support the server sending a custom packet to the client to disable cert...

Re: Tiledata.mul problem with unlit heating stands.

So this is a client side error?

I'm guessing maybe OSI doesn't use this item anymore? Seems crazy to have it lit when clearly it should not be.

Re: Outstanding 099 Core Issues?

Maybe just need to change the docs with 1 section for release build(0.99) and 1 section for development built(1.00)?
That way rather than effort to back port these changes we just move forward?

Then when 1.00 is official release and 1.01 is development we can drop the requirement for 2 build docs?

Re: Stationary & Centered effect speed

I've done a compare of the core code from your release and the current repository. From what i can see i can't find any differences. I'm wondering if this isn't so much a case of something broken/fixed in the core but more a case of the client has maybe changed the way the packets are received for t...

Re: SendSysMessageUC and unicode

I think from memory last time there were discussions about UC that from what we can tell the core is sending the packets correctly as intended and that something has changed on the client side. I think someone was going to look into logging some packets from the client to find out if anything has ch...

Re: How many items of a given objtype

We had something similar in the old Pol Hook dll that was around for zulu servers.
When the function would run it would literally lock up the whole shard. It wasn't used very often :P

I brought it up on discord but i figured i'd post here too. It would be good to be able to enable or disable a package from within escript/pol itself.

I had mentioned to Nando a year previous to the replacement that I had converted the 0.95 Distro to handle the enhancements to POL since POL 0.96 was released. He suggested that I add that to the repo as the Distro_Alt and gave me commit access. So I did. I know that hurt Edwards' feelings but I wa...

Which files does your system think you're missing.

Doesn't change the fact that the original post titled "Complete" auction system, doesn't actually contain the AI for the NPC defined in the config files within the zip file supplied. Regardless of if they were running the "offical" distro or not the AI scripts should have probably been supplied as a...
