  1. You need to add an item use function to the item and have it output a refining gem. I would suggest you to dig into the server files for items with a similar behavior and try to implement it yourself, it's mostly copy and paste

    Why did serverdev close

    You can use archive.org to see in the past for (almost) any website. I picked a random date in 2011 as an example : https://web.archive.org/web/20101201084458/http://forum.serverdev.net:80/index.php So even if the official archive is gone , you'll be able to use this.
  3. I am not a complete beginnier , i'm not completely unaware how programming works. However as the most here know there is an impossibly large chasm between a rough understanding and a level of understanding which enables to actually do things. So my question isn't only about "what languages should i learn". I know it's C++ / Lua / SQL / HTML / PHP , maybe python for ancillary tool creation. My question is in the specific : in what parts of those languages i should focus on? My main issue with programming has been mainly one : i'm bored by the the basics but overwhelmed by the complexity after those basics. Any suggestion/learning resource is welcome , thank you for you time.
  4. I am searching without any sucess the part where the multiplier given by the level diffence between the character and the mob is calculated. I pretty much scoured the whole exp_and_level.lua but likely missed it, any help would be apreciated. Note : not development related , but i'm making an excell sheet which would calculate how many mobs does it take to reach a particular level , and i would keep track of the level difference. Thanks in advance.

    Setting Game.exe CPU affinity from start.bat

    Yes , it works as intented. The only thing you have to be careful about is that if you close clients , the order continues to be the same, it doesn't fill the "hole". So if you have 4 open on 0 1 2 3 , close the last two 2 3 , and open two more , they will be on 0 1 as the first two. However it works really well. Note : if you want to use it too , check how many cores your CPU has , and edit the "4" to be your number.

    Setting Game.exe CPU affinity from start.bat

    Thanks , however in my preliminary search I had arleadly found that method and didn't find it satisfactory. The main problem is that it would require a different shortcut for every affinity i wanted , so four shortcuts in my case (unless i misunderstood something), i would like one single start.bat that automatically determined which Core has the least number of game.exes running on it and it executed the new game.exe with that particular affinity. I hope i'm being clear enough , if i need to rephrase just ask

    Random quest

    I would suggest looking at "A [Class]'s Life" quests. (A Swordsman'sLiife from Peter , A Herbalist's Life from Gannon , and so on. Every class-quest bearing NPC has it) Instead of making 5 different quests and setting them to come up randomly , just make one quest with randomized goals.
  8. I am wondering if it is possible to edit the start.bat in such a way that every new Game.exe client opened is automatically set to have an affinity with the least busy CPU core. I realized while playing with many clients open that while the game lagged considerably with both CPU and RAM being under 50% usage , on further investigation i realized that one single core (the 0th) was doing all the work , processing for all the eleven clients i opened. Now , the fix was fairly trivial , going on task manager and setting the affinity for every game.exe to a different CPU core. Once i did so the lag completely disappeared. Doing so manually is a bit of a chore , and more importantly i often forget to do so. Is there a way to set the start.bat to recognize the affinities of the other game.exes and automatically setting the new process affine to the Core that has the least number of processes affine to it? Thank you in advance. And example : I have a 4 core CPU , 1st game, exe would be affine to CPU 0 , 2nd to CPU 1 , 3rd to CPU 2 , 4rth to CPU 3 , and then start repeating.
  9. Thanks! I was used using arbah.ascaronia.ru and this link is offline , even googling didn't help finding a copy/another website. My interest was simply to find an equivalent alternative , i initally believed they were done for good. Another reason for me to start learning Russian then , as soon as the exam session is done i'll get on with it
  10. As stated in the title , since the TOP/PKO database has been out of service my quality of life hasn't been the same , I kindly ask if somebody has the offline files or knows a identical clone database. At the moment I am using mordo.info but it lacks essential information (like blueprints recepies spreadsheets to make an example) Thanks in advance.

    Thank you , that's precisely what I wanted to convey .

    Pressure , the existence of commonly agreed upon rules even with a lack of strict enforcement could drastically lower the ammount of rule-breaking, simply because of peer pressure. However that could lead to a loss of potential new membership , or people who avoid partecipating because they don't like the forum envoirment. I think that a relaxed form of enforcement , bans no longer than three days , no permas being more than acceptable for a small community.
  13. Maximilian


    Well , that's a part of my point. The lack of rules is the majority of the problem ; I indeed suggest the creation of general forum rules ,at least covering the basics (spam/hatespeech etc), I obviously agree that enforcement shouldn't become retroactive. However the quality of the community would improve once rules are in place , in my opinion.

    I hope not to come out as too harsh , however does this forum have actual moderation? I continually see one word posts , balantly offensive retorts/statements , the and some casual hatespeech / ableism . I am worried that it drives away the more polite of people , given that not everybody is peachy to be innundated of toxic comments if s/he dares to offer something. If the answer is negative , may I ask why it's the case? TL;DR : Imho the forum is a dump , we need the Hammer and Purges
  15. Note one very important thing the first function will not increase damage for mobs/bosses which are lance/carsises/phils/amis , for instance it won't increase the damage on CA mobs. So i reccomend everyone to use shako's logic.
