running server?

Post by darwin »

I compiled a server (with minor setting-type changes, just changed number of initial statistics points, some class, class title, item, spell, monster names, and set fruit bat characters displayed ‘@,’ and want to do so for mimics for others to see, but optional for player.) I edited the .cfg and logged in (to my 192.168.1.100) to create my dungeon master, got to choosing the sex, then it exits and I see this log (account/character names removed.)

Code: Select all

12 May (Fri) 21:04:25: Goodbye account(character)=d@cosmos.melik.windwi ("disconnect in play") (Ind=0,ind=0;wpos=-,-,-;xy=-,-)

it look that you change something with starting position of character… try to compile it again, but don't change static points ;)

I thought I was increasing how many statistics points (STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, CHA) you get to distribute, but are you saying I changed the map points instead? I didn't want to do that, just make a better ‘fun’ server... I guess I'll diff my version with the current standard and see what went wrong.

If you're modifying the code, first thing you should try is recompiling all code, i.e. type these commands inside the 'src' directory:

make clean
make

I did ‘make clean’ first, and nothing changed after make. Again, as someone wrongly assumed or misunderstood, I didn't change the PC's map position (don't even know where it is.) I'll prove that with this diff (temporary URL... is there a repository?) DTomeNET diff (again, doesn't work yet, so don't download unless you want to help debug.)

All my changes are under whatever license TomeNET uses (some Moria/Angband/ZAngband/ToME and/or GPL license, as applicable,) in case you like any (apart for example, than increasing initial statistics points, as I said, for a ‘fun’ server.) For example, the female equivalents of druids, knights, lords, wizards are druidesses, dames, ladies, witches. I changed ‘Draconian’ to standard AD&D 2nd ed. term ‘Dragon-kin.’ A standard English term is ‘magician,’ not Dungeons & Dragons' (D&D) ‘magic-user,’ nor modern fantasy informal/slang version of Zoroastrian ‘magus,’ ‘mage’... perhaps that's neutral, and ‘magus’ and ‘maga’ specify each sex. In classic D&D, ‘Maga’ is the name level title of a female magician or (as ‘Lady Maga,’) elf. I also tried to change Halloween & Christmas to Samhain (pagan day for it) & Solstice, but the dates (slightly different) are obfuscated, IMO.

I did some testing with your modifications. Client version 4.7.0b seems to connect to the server just fine. Client version 4.7.1 crashes exactly like you described. Looks like there's possibly a bug that prevents a 4.7.1 client from connecting to old servers.

The problem is the tomenet.eu front page doesn't link to the latest source code, only the latest client. The older client connects fine. I found the source code in downloads directory, but now have to redo all my code.

Thanks, and no problem... having to redo it finally made me decide to try some programming tools (sed, etc.) to see if I can re-implement the changes faster... but after first try, it didn't replace most the strings. Any other suggestions, or should I ask more in a programming thread? Also, I'm wondering, is the source code on a version control software site yet (such as Github.com, etc.) that I could just learn how to upload patches/forks?
