Re: Officially supported Distros.

Just a reminder: The Modern Distro is a work in progress. It is somewhat incomplete. Feel free to use it but keep in mind that it is missing a few things, for example poisoning.

Re: Taking a break.

My break is going to be a little longer than I expected. My PC decided to fail on me. It looks like a fresh install, or a "refresh" of Windows is the only fix. Hopefully, that will help but of course that means reinstalling ALL of the software I need for development. Fortunately some of the programm...

Taking a break.

Due to recent events within my family, I will be taking a semi-break. This means development with the two Distros will be paused. I will visit the forums, probably daily, and try to help with questions but I cannot concentrate on development at this time. Feel free to ask for help. Someone is always...

Re: Problem running POL 98

The batch files from the 098 Core will work for the POL 099 as well. If you download the POL 100 Core you can use the Configurator. It provides a graphical user interface for setting up and configuring POL.

Re: Problem running POL 98

It looks like you have a skill not defined correctly in the uoskills.cfg file. Which shard's scripts are you trying to use? I am also curious to know if they are 098 compatible and also why you are not using the current official POL Core version 099 1? Anyway, until I have some idea which script set...

Re: Problem running POL 98

Look in the directory where you have POL installed. Do you have a folder named batchfiles ? If you do not have that folder that will cause starthere.bat to behave as you described. Depending on where you acquired your 098 files, you could be missing some critical files needed to run POL. If you are ...

I have been busy most of the day. I will post a walk through on the use of the starthere file later today. I haven't used it in a while but if I remember correctly things need to be done in certain order. That could be the reason why it didn't work.

Re: A few questions

Been thinking about the script you are having problems with. The first issue is probably a little tougher to handle than the second one. The reason we need to see it is so we can look at what it is doing and figure out where to apply the fixes.

Re: A few questions

Hello Jack the Ripper, First, you should know that Scotland Yard has been looking for you for quite some time now. So be careful :D CInt() converts a non-integer to an integer. So if you pass it 100.3 it strips off the decimal .3 and returns 100. The example you gave cd = CInt(time/10) divides the v...

Re: Problem running POL 98

For POL 098 there is a starthere.bat, for Windows, or a starthere.sh for Linux, in the POL folder. I suggest that you use that. It has functions for copying the required files to your POL installation and It runs uoconvert with the correct parameters to do the realm generation.

Re: Feature Request: Update POL Core to use the new book header packet.

Yeah. I tested the packet for the new book gump. I had hoped that it would allow longer book titles to be entered in the gump because, as it is, the title area is rather limited in length. The results of my test revealed that there was no change in the text length for titles. In fact, I couldn't see...

Re: Bulletin Boards

Yep. The bulletin boards will be in both versions of the Distro. I remember using the old BB and how awful it was. I haven't tried this system yet but from what I have seen of ThisIsMe's other creations it's going to be a vast improvement over what we had.

Re: Attempting to make LAN server

One issue is that BrainAI appeared to be consuming a lot of script cycles which caused the server to run very slow. As I said before, I don't know if this is the BrainAI system or the way it was implemented in the server. If the server is bogged down running BrainAI that could prevent you from loggi...

I don't remember BrainAI being part of the Zulu Hotel scripts originally. We have seen problems with the BrainAI system with other servers. Whether it is with the actual system or the way it was implemented in those servers I cannot say. I would suggest contacting the person who made the ZHT2A scrip...
