Well, it used to run just fine (with all the small snags along the way as usual), but for various reasons I had to reinstall it. Now your quest NPC's will not talk to me, which is the same issue discussed earlier in the thread. It used to be fixed by installing certain Perl packages using the PPM that came with ActivePerl. Now the server installation package instead comes with Strawberry, which does not (as far as I am able to find) include anything like that, except CPAN, which I am not able to get to work.

So, yes, it does have to do with your server package, which I think is pretty great when it works.

Before this gets out of control (as everyone still seems amiable..)

..let's address this as an EQEmu issue rather than a 'Solo Server Package' issue since the problem came about after core changes to the emulator installer.

Zia, please start a new thread with missing Perl DBI functionality in new installer dependencies - thanks!

(This issue will affect more than just this package.)

I just got my EQemu server setup and running. I was looking for a way to lower the HP of every monster since my server will only be a few players. Then I stumbled upon this thread and was happy to see the same person worked on this as Ultima Online Odyssey (djeryv).

Anyhow, I wanted to ask a few questions regarding this single player database mod.

1. Will this database work with the latest EQemu and PEQ database?

2. Does the modifications in this single player mod cover all the current zones in EQemu/EQ?

I guess that is all for now. I've been playing with the standard PEQ database for now and it is fun, but something like a solo player experience or at least an experience for a small group is perfect for what I'd need on my server.

It works with RoF2. It is mostly finished up thru omens of war xpac. Everything else beyond that, the mobs are in most zones but nothing like quests work and the mobs themselves have very low hps and insane regen. If youre hoping to make things soloable, youll have to do a bit more work. Most raid mobs have insane aoe damage which you can fix with the gm command #npcedit spellscale (0-100). Some raid mobs have scripted damage, like Bristlebane, that scales up rapidly. Youll have to fix that in his script. Even using the spellscale setting, some spells still do max damage, youll have to change those in the spell file. A few that come to mind are chaos claws that all gates trash mobs use and a couple spells used by mata muram.
