btw whatever happened to openeq?

LordRathgil 07-10-2008 07:38 PM

Ive gotten the client to work properly with 0.5.6 perl enabled it required reverting the structs to the 0.5.5 structs (crashed with the included 5.6 structs file)

*begs for opensource*

Look, cheating via self compiled client is not an issue.

If you want people to be able to use the eq client, then do it this way... If client connects to server using Simple Client, he/she is required to use a certain version and it must be verified by the server according to the users specifications in the compiled binaries. If the client is connecting from eq, then you really don't have much to worry about considering hacked client binaries.

I agree and it wouldnt take much to add the check into the server at all

BTW Side note ive gotten 0.5.6 and 0.5.8 to work without crashing but with 0.5.8 theres no quests (that i can figure out how to get working) 0.6.0-dr2 doesnt work it crashes on op_wearchange but its progress

Okay, I think you're beginning to win me over. I'm going away for the weekend so I can't release anything now but maybe Sunday. At least I have a couple of days to mull it over (and you have a couple of days to debate it some more :D )

LordRathgil 07-10-2008 10:19 PM

debating is fun lol mull away man mull away lol hope its a pleasure trip and nota business trip! lol BTW could ya check yer pms when ya get a minute shot ya a couple questions

Side note has anyone actually compiled oz? Im stuck on the fastMM4 keeps saying file not fount fastmm4.dcu

oh and can SC run a version earlier then 0.5.5 just curious been thinking about using a 0.5.3 version i have

Windcatcher 07-10-2008 11:20 PM

Cripp has compiled it. I spent a few hours helping him get the Delphi environment set up.

LordRathgil 07-10-2008 11:23 PM

ahh yeah that explains it when ya get the chance could ya drop me a pm with some instructions i use boreland delphi 6 enterprise they dont have to be super detailed just a simple how to would be fine

Ok a few ideas i had about SC... which if the source is release i plan on working on unless someone beats me to it

1) Implimenting a Loading screen
2) Making the window title show the game or server name
3) cleaning up the item table fields( e.g the unknowns) and making the client match so its easier to work with
4) Danyamic sky (meaning multiple skies to choose from for various zones)
5) Control Key mapping
6) Journal Window
7) Support for other versions of the emu ( 0.5.3, and 0.6.1-0.7.x)
8) Patch system
These are some minor glitches ive seen

1) Targeting ( the need to click the mob in precisly the right place in order to target)
2) Player lights seem to crash the server
3) Item window shows (param2) in some places
4) 0.6.0-dr2 Client crashes on OP_WearChange

rathgil81 07-11-2008 12:58 AM

OH and a biggie ive been working on is adding authentication to clearlogin ( And encryption if possible)

Texvor 07-11-2008 01:44 AM

Um Im just curious but is this a playable client, what I mean to say is does it actually work or is it still in testing?

sesmar 07-11-2008 01:10 PM

It is playable; however, it does not work with any SOE content or Zones. Everything on the server must be custom in order for this client to work.

Cripp 07-11-2008 01:14 PM

also, it still needs quite a bit of work. so id say its still in testing...

Texvor 07-12-2008 04:04 AM

I see windcatcher might be opensourcing this... what language is it written in? Does anyone know?

Texvor 07-12-2008 05:07 AM

Im having some small issues do I need to use an older version of mysql?
