Monthly News – January 2016

Hey all!

Long time no news on my blog. But no news on my blog doesn’t mean there ARE no news. Honestly I simply was too lazy to update the blog…

However, to avoid this in future, I’ll try to post some “Monthly News” in the first week of every new month. So you’ll get news and I can reflect on everything that was done in the last month.
Let’s begin with the January news now:

15-3athena:
Updated the maximum size for packets

According to rAthena even older than 2013-12-23 clients can deal with 24576 as a maximum size. Also, according to 3ceam revision 764 clients from 2013-12-23 on can deal with bigger packets. Since 3ceam uses 65636 as maximum, we’ll use it as default value. Thanks to Rytech!

Huge Updates to item_db and mob_db

I’ve reviewed a huge number of items and monsters, including monster-skills. Also I’ve added missing Mora equippment and added full support to a new item package (IP_HALLOWEEN_G_BOX).

Episode System updates

yeah… the episode system. I’ve managed quite some updates on this. First of all I’ve added the getepisode() script command. Using this command you’ll no longer need to check the battle configs directly. It will return the episode the server is running on.

I’ve added a documentation of the whole episode system to docs-folder. Also I’ve added basic support for episode specific databases.

The item database for episode 6.0 is currently in progress and will (hopefully) be done soon.

2012-04-10 Client update

Some days ago I’ve added full support for the favorite item tab. This feature requires a 2011-11-22aRagexeRE or newer client to work. So 2012-04-10aRagexeRE is the first client for us.

NyanRO

Since all news can be read on NyanRO-Homepage, I’ll only post a short list of the most important feature-updates:

  • More fixes on instance system. Most of the instances working as intended again.
  • Huge updates to item and quest database.
  • Added bonus2 bSkillUseSP item bonus. Now we’re able to reduce the SP consumption of a skill via item script.
  • Added getitempackage script command. This is our implemention of ‘getgroupitem’. I’ve decided to seperate these.
  • From now on there is a 2nd WoE schedule (Sunday, 8pm – 9pm).
  • We redesigned the whole reward shops.
  • We added the mutanted homunculus.

Moving to GitHub

It’s done now. Today I got the time to create a GitHub account and export all GoogleCode SVNs to GitHub. This means also: Development can continue as before.

Please note:

  • The GoogleCode Pages will get no more updates. This also means there will be no more SVN commits on this pages.
  • As the name sais, GitHub uses Git-version control. So you can help with development by creating pull requests if you want to.
  • As long as you only want to use the latest versions of my software you can use your SVN program to get the updates. However it’s recommended to change to a Git program if you want to use all features of Git version control.

Google Code shutting down

Some of you will have noticed it allready: Google Code will be shutting down in near future. I’ve got a mail from Google yesterday where they told this. So what to do now?

Google added a “export to GitHub” function to Google Code to export all projects directly to GitHub. So this will be the next step here. After all projects are exported I’ll only update the GitHub page so there will be no more updates in Google Code SVN anymore.

This also means: Before doing any development on SVNs I’ll create a GitHub account and export them. It’s pointless to update the SVNs like they are right now. This will only increase the data to export.

Updated SsROSe

Hey!

Today I’ve made a small update on my RO-Server Emulator project. I’ve done some work with the message handling system, so the showmsg.bmx file should be done for now.

Some work for Logfile- Pre-support is done now too, but it’s not working for now. It’s planned to be added later, but to do this, there should be something to log…

You can view all changes here: SVN- R14

 

PS: It’s planned, to move all pages of my old website to this blog, so stay tuned 😉
