    How do i add item ???

    There's probably guides for it somewhere in the archives or on these forums. All items are located in ItemInfo.txt, and each line (each item) has its own parameters; stats, tradeability, price, to name a few. Using CSVed is recommended, as editing those parameters is (subjectively) more intuitive. Either you make a new, empty line, and edit it as you wish, or copy a line from an existing item (preferably similar to the one you're trying to create) and simply edit the parameters you need to edit. Every Item needs to have a different ID.

    A new kind of PKO

    Anything can work, given the features draw attention, you advertise enough and you open at a proper time, but most people seem to be hot for servers which feature longevity. This led a lot of devs to focus on vanilla or close-to-vanilla servers, because the standard goals on such servers by themselves require a fair bit of time and effort. Additionally, due to the general nature of these servers, catching up is a lot more realistic and easier to do. As for the features/maps themselves, it's difficult to say if players are more keen on PvP or PvE, as it boils down to personal preference. Though you definitely don't want to overdo it. Too many PK maps either means too many rewards and consistency being required more than average (not something everyone can afford) or maps meant for pure PK which no one will want to go to for obvious reasons. Same principle applies to PvE; either they're too rewarding and you need to no-life them (especially early on) or they're not and no one will want to waste their time whacking mobs or bosses for hours if the reward is little. This is just the way I see it and what I've concluded from being a fairly active player in private servers for quite awhile now. In the end, how you want to shape your server is your choice, though the community is extremely picky, and not many players are willing to try something that doesn't seem promising right off the bat (or something that's not advertised properly) and even fewer are willing to stay and keep the server going.

    Creating weapon glow

    Is it possible to mix glows using this method? I've managed to make weapons glow either red, blue or yellow (and green but less important) but I'm interested in the possibility of making a weapon glow purple for example (as it would with a red + blue gem), rather than either blue or red. Additionally, does anyone know where the colors each gem provides are stored or how exactly the system works?

    It is, most likely because the feature - designed this way - fits the server's rates, speed and gameplay. On high rate servers which usually have instant leveling, it is not worth trying to implement something of the sort, while in lower rate/vanilla ones, it becomes a nightmare to balance properly as it's either too rewarding, hence abusable, or not worth it.
  6. You should check out his NPC script and see if that message appears somewhere in there or if you have a faulty condition for the trigger. If you don't know how to do it, go to your server files > garner (Argent map) > garnernpc.txt, look for Sinbad there and his function should be something like r_talk. Find the function in one of the NpcScript files and see from there.
  7. In the OP, it would be easier to read if you used a brighter color for the keywords/files, as it looks fairly difficult to read on the dark background. Otherwise, great guide.

    Create a new MOB in Argent City?

    Find the map folder in your server files where you want to create the monster at (for argent it's 'garner'), and open the monster_conf file (garnermonster_conf.lua for Argent). There you can create a spawn point for a monster. Just follow the template other monsters use.

    Max disciples

    Are you by any chance using v2 files? Because from my experience (as a player though), the disciple system worked differently in ToP 2 and the maximum number of disciples wasn't limited by graduated ones (lv41+), as is the case in v1. I could be horribly wrong because it's been so long, but worth a try.

    stall gold limit

    It is, but as far as I know, only PKO has this feature.

    Reset Char Book

    Maybe try and take a look at the rebirth script, and add the stat/skill reset part to a consumable item when used.

    Those rules with "a lack of strict enforcement" as you call them already do exist, I'm sure everyone here knows what acceptable behavior on Forums or in communities like this in general is, yet they break them for whatever reason. The only difference would be that they would now have a written form. I'm pretty sure the people breaking them don't really care about peer pressure and are generally negatively perceived by others, another reason why they wouldn't care. Though, that's just my take on it, not trying to state "facts", just my opinion... This forum is solely here for "ToP people", generally people who played ToP, in other words, people who are used to this kind of behavior. The only non-ToP related sections I see here are Programming, Web and maybe Off-Topic. All sections which are a bit lackluster and nobody would join this forum solely for either of those sections. What I'm trying to say here (sorry for the lack of coherence) is that people who mainly browse this forum - Players, Developers and Developers-in-the-making don't pay too much attention to the rules being broken which you mentioned. Again, more of my personal opinion/observation. Let's not forget how lots of people (from what I've seen) can't speak English all too well, so not only do they care, they can't really follow the rules if they don't fully understand them... I doubt this forum's that active that an up-to-3-day absence would cause a lot of mischief and get people to "reform" and stop breaking the rules. Other than that... alt accounts do exist. Being someone that likes rules and having everything written out, I do agree with you, you can't go wrong with rules, but it's the enforcing part that I don't agree on. I doubt a lot of positive changes would be seen if people would get warnings or temporary bans for breaking some minor/moderate rules (I'm pretty sure senseless and seriously hateful posts/members get taken care of here; I've seen one situation where a Mod(?) reacted to a member trashing on someone else's post). And rules just for the sake of being there are obsolete and a waste of time in my opinion...

    There's already rules which aren't "set in stone", basically behavior which is considered rational - which people don't follow, as you yourself said. Taking that into account, why would they follow rules which are written somewhere, unless they are enforced? - and they shouldn't be because it's in no-one's interest for this already small community to lose members.
  15. Well, here's what I found when I went to the website where you download SQL 2012. Maybe you could give that a try? And if you're following a guide on the 2014 version, why don't you just download that one?
