Default Dev Blog: New Server Config Loader (Json)



Thanks to the work of Shin Noir (Xackery) from RebuildEQ, we've converted our server config loader from XML to JSON.

This is now live, whenever new binaries are used, world.exe will automatically pull down a config converter before attempting to load the config. This looks something like this:

World will use the new eqemu_config.json effective immediately. All other utilities that were built around loading config variables from XML will have to be adjusted or updated to use the JSON format.

A backup of the old XML config will be located in serverdir/backups/
  • The Perl MySQL plugin has been updated already: see here
  • Linux Installer now uses the new .json format
  • Windows Installer now uses the new .json format
  • DiscordEQ OOC chat relay built by Shin should have a new release ready for this change: see here

If you find any tools or utilities tied to the old XML format that needs to be changed or adjusted, let us know in this thread and we will make sure that things get adjusted appropriately.
