Re: Madman's Features list

(This is veering off track from the original topic, sorry.) I noticed that POL already does that for us(Force reequip of all items on startup.) and using temp cprops/mods you don't really need to do any reequipping/unequipping. -- It took me forever to figure out that # before a cprop name makes it ...

If (Weapon)Delay is set, (Weapon)Speed is set to 0(or non existent) POL will fail to load.

Re: Madman's Features list

Any suggestions on how to keep char.delay_mod properly updated for like say Dex bonus on speed? I thought about modifying it when attackhook is called, but the first swing wouldn't be calculated after a change - Don't like that idea. Thought about a control script fired at logon to check for changes...

Re: Madman's Features list

Added : character.delay_mod [+-ms] for WeaponDelay If (Delay!=0) use Delay(+delay_mod) to calculate next weapon swing. Is this a temp prop(Doesn't save so when we have an equipscript modify it on restart it doesn't reapply the affect?)? And I'm not sure if it means that it will just use .delay_mod ...

There's a program out there that removes a few client features(duel clienting, encryption, light levels, etc) called NecroToolz. The source code for it is available on Sourceforge(Don't have a link.). I do have the source but I modified it, so look for it on there and if you can't find it I'll send ...

Re: GetStatus problem [POL095]

You mean 096, Pierce? If so then yeah the code they posted for formatting time should work. Also don't forget to set CoreRequired to the current POL version you're using(95/96) otherwise I don't think it'll load when POL starts... Time isn't really required anyway, I don't remember why I even put it...

It'll just run through all the regiontypes.cfg's and return what type(ore, fish, beer) was found. Granted it's completely doable with scripts I thought I'd toss it out there.

Forget POL is already running and load up a second POL, after a minute or two your accounts.txt becomes corrupt.

Re: Madman's Features list

A script hook like attackhook that would be used to return the wait time in miliseconds for player's next swing. So we can factor our own ways to make players swing faster/slower based on different stats than the core uses. As discussed/locked here(among other posts...); http://forums.polserver.com/...

It's possible that we could use a larger variable type for that. Would slightly increase overall memory usage but probably barely noticeably. Anyone else want to see this?

Your best bet would be to make a 'hotbar' with an assortment of spells set by the user, keep it in a nice location where it wouldn't interfere with the users game play of course. Even simpler way would be to make a text command .castspell <spellname> so players could set spells to hotkeys. I don't t...

getgottenitem() - returns an ItemRef to the item held on the player's cursor, if any.

I believe it's limited due to the UO client.
