Forum Changes and Worldserver Management
Apr 20, 2015 - 11:29 AM - by Akkadius
Forum Changes
  • Code blocks are now 60 lines long if they reach that by default
  • Code block width has been adjusted to 70% of the parent element width
  • New users will now have "Default Thread Subscription Mode" set to "Instant E-Mail notifications"
  • To enable this yourself, you can do so here: http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/pro...do=editoptions
World Server Registration & Management
  • Cranked out World Server account management last weekend that has been long awaited by many (Located on the left Site Navigation under the account system)
  • All of your existing World Server accounts that were tied to your forum account will show up here
  • You can have up to 4 World Server accounts private or public
New World Registrations
  • What you put in the world registration needs to line up with your eqemu_config.xml information in the block. When your server connects to the EQEmu loginserver, it will authenticate itself with this information
World Server Descriptions
  • These can use HTML, I have Javascript tags being stripped. If you post inappropriate content expect to be banned. The same goes for inappropriate server names and use. If anyone finds there is childish server registrations being made, report them to me directly.
Preferred Server Status
  • If you want to be eligible for Preferred Server status, make sure you have your world server registered by the end of this week. I will be going through and promoting/demoting by the end of this week

Worldserver Management
Mar 21, 2015 - 3:04 AM - by Akkadius
Just an FYI, this is on its way here soon. I will update when it is so that folks can manage their own world servers once again.

Updating and Maintainability
Mar 12, 2015 - 12:39 PM - by Akkadius
I need to make some overdue news posts on our community and the amazing work our guys are doing behind the scenes all the time, but I wanted to get this information out there because it is no good if people aren't aware of these things being available.

To some of you it has been obvious the attempts to improve an area that has been much needed in improvement, and that is the installing, deployment and maintaining of a server.

For some of us, we can set up a server from scratch in as little as 15 minutes. For some of us it would take a week after frustrating battles and slamming your face into desk.

Akka's Repack
For most new people, the repack has made EQEmu server immediately available and this puts the power of creativity, simplicity, ease and enjoyment into the hands of anyone who wishes to re-experience or express themselves using this great game as their medium.

EQEmu Update Script (Linux and Windows)
Originally, this script was made to keep databases up to date with changes, which it has done so almost flawlessly with some bumps here and there, like any software you overcome bugs and challenges. Now, it has grown into a more complete utility script that you can use to keep server assets up to date with ease.

Right now it supports the following options you see in the image below. With the ability to 'Officially' download the latest V2 Map files which have not been easily available anywhere until now.

It also supports updating LUA Modules/Perl Plugins/PEQ Quests and it does so intelligently, as in, if you have changes between your local file and the updated copy, it will display those changes and ask you if you want to actually update that file before doing so. This makes the process far less blind. And, if you wanted to install all of these things from scratch, it will also pull everything down flawlessly.

Future Additions
What my plans are for adding onto this script:
  • Windows server setup from scratch
  • Windows Loginserver Setup (Local)
  • PEQ Database Auto Import (With prompts to set database name)
  • Windows latest server binary stable download
  • Any other useful utilities that come by over time

Currently this script updates itself when new server binaries are ran, however if you want to update it manually yourself until you update it, here is the current version: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/EQ...qemu_update.pl

So while this is more of a FYI, feel free to post any new thoughts, appreciation or ideas. Thanks, Akka

Changes to Bag Save Procedures
Mar 03, 2015 - 7:20 PM - by Uleat
A recent fix to the inventory system necessitated an enforcement of bag size restrictions during the save process.

Any players using an 'interface' to exploit inaccessible bag slots will need to remove items they want to keep from these
locations immediately upon logging in.

Upon logging out or zoning, any items in locations not considered as 'valid' will be lost forever.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

UPDATED: Approved Akka's Repack Update 2-13-2015
Feb 05, 2015 - 8:11 PM - by Akkadius
If you are using my repack, and you want to update your server software, there is no current automatic way, but I have stable binaries built and approved through testing here:

UPDATED (2-13-2015) STABLE

To Update
  • Go to your server folder
  • Backup all of your .exe's (Just incase)
  • Extract the .rar into your server folder and overwrite the .exe's if necessary
  • Run world.exe
  • It will pull down a database upgrade script which will prompt you to update your database
  • Backup your database with option 1) (To be safe)
  • Once that is done, choose option 3 to stage updates so it can figure out which updates need to be ran
  • Run option 3) again to apply the updates
  • Run option 5) to pull down latest opcodes
  • Option 0) to exit
  • Close world, use your server start .bat as normal
  • Done, enjoy all the fixes and stability changes as of 2-13-2015 as well as RoF2

This will also work for all other windows installs.

Perl version 5.12.3
