Re: Reading Character Mission Data via Website?

Look into json and serialize/unserialize via php and javascript. Also, look at how the mission data is structured in mmo.h (src/common). This will help when processing the incoming data to your web server.

Re: New Style needed

Actually, it would probably save you a lot of work in the long run. WP Foro is really easy to maintain and customize and Wordpress itself has a lot better tools to block spammers, which is one of the things this forum is deals with occasionally.

phpBB had it's run, but it's pretty dated imo.

Re: New Style needed

I'm a big fan of WPForo...but highly doubt this is built on a WP framework.

Sure is clean, but wouldn't be that simple to port over to though. I imagine you'll be opting for a phpBB style to avoid all the queries and migrations needed.

Re: Anyone seen an error like this before with the @@ in?

Unresolved external error can mean a few different things. Most likely something is declared but not defined. In your case, I'd be looking at that fishing action function and making sure I call it correctly. I think missing a colon in the scope resolution operator will trigger that as well. : vs :: ...

Re: Failed to connect to server (setup)

If you named it dspdb, and you have MySQL running, the only thing left I can think of is two things: 1) Did you import all sql files? There's a batch script in the setup guide you can use. 2) Are you running this locally or on a production server? Default IP is 127.0.0.1, which shouldn't be an issue...

Re: Failed to connect to server (setup)

Make sure MySQL is running. If it's not, that's most likely your problem. Open Start -> MySQL Notifier. Then right click on the icon in the system tray, and select 'Start the MySQL Server'. If it is running already, double-check your config files in the root directory of 'darkstar'. Make sure all fi...

Reach Online Source Code

A few common questions I was asked about this server: How do your custom NPC's speak, face you, and interact with you similar to retail? How are you able to warp anywhere in the world so quick? How does your enhancement system work? How does your auction bot work? How do you script your quests? How ...

Re: Custom NMs

@BraMithra Best way to learn is by studying the actual .sql files in an editor, like Notepad++. Look at how the queries are built. In mob_droplist, you'll see a lot of INSERT INTO statements. Here's an example: INSERT INTO mob_droplist VALUES ('2185','0','0','1000','3082','50'); -- Withered Bud You ...

Re: Warp To NM Script - With Search Suggestions

P.S. The PrintToPlayer functions use Tagban's tweak: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2402

If your luabaseentity files aren't modded, take out the hex color codes.
