Question for a 'special' feature - can we do this with POL?

Post by OWHorus » Wed Sep 20, 2017 12:54 pm

Hello,

i heard of a special feature, where a player can avoid going through the login process if he wishes to select another character.

Supposedly it works this way: The player uses a command, this logs off his current character and puts him to the clients character selection menu. There he can select a new character. The advantage of this is he does not need to login anew.

The client continues to run even in the 'normal' case, but you need to login before you can use a new character. Is it possible (with a special packet I suppose?) to fall back only to the character selection menu?

Anything known about this?

The main question is whether the client would go back to the char selection screen. You could try to send the 0xA9 packet via script and see what the client does with it. Here is the doc: https://docs.polserver.com/packets/inde ... acket=0xA9

I doubt the client will respond to it. Maybe it crashes...

Without having separate logonserver from gameserver this is not possible with the current UO client ( not sure about enchanced though ) and requires some changes on client side aswell.

Your best bet for this feature would be something like this but this opens up alot unwanted stuff aswell:
