  1. Landmines and Bombs and other blog stuff

    This discussion has happened many times before, and long before most of you were even on these forums. It's not changing. If you'd done your research you'd know that the intention is to split the majority of Sci-Fi & Medievil aspects to different areas of the game, so that those who do not wish to see the other, can play in peace.
  2. EL Network Protocol Documentation

    The Wiki has come a long way. Some restructuring has taken place to remove non-essential information from the protocol description article (EL Network Protocol). We now have a complete list of Item Image IDs (thanks to Entropy & Learner) and the official client's colour codes has also been provided. The Actor related data has been split to its own page to shrink the main article slightly. You can view these pages here: EL Network Protocol EL Item Image IDs EL Actor Data EL Colour Codes Thanks to all those who have contributed, hope it helps those who are new to EL's protocol!
  3. EL Network Protocol Documentation

    Thanks to Timbol and Freeone3000 for their recent work on the Wiki. An explanation of message parsing and some examples in Python and Java have been added (although some of the Java code is questionable )
  4. Can I do a: el.exe -p 2001

    ......It's: -sp 2001 --server-port=2001 By standards, you only use '=' on the long-options.
  5. The 12 days of Christmas clarification

    It's an English Christmas song/carol. The gifts are not cumulative, but one given each day starting on the 25th of December until the 6th of January. A quick search via Google would have told you this.
  6. Football: English Premiership 06/07

    Naaaaaaaaa... Palace for Administration! Yeah baby...3 pts in the bag. Now we face Chelski who should win comfortably -_- LOL. Well, we're having an awful season. Kiraly moved (loan) and we just don't have the investment in the players through Jordan. Waste of time even checking Sky Sports for the results now. I was really hoping on Arsenal to pull it off. Not only to keep the gap between Man Utd. and Chelsea (I watch Man Utd. regularly; brother is a fan), but Morinhio's comments towards Arsenal (relating to them just playing pretty Football, which wont win 'em the title) were so arrogant, I wanted him to have to eat them!
  7. Football: English Premiership 06/07

    Charlton and Newcastle for relegation!
  8. SCRIP - How many He's & Sr's to go training

    Problem solved... Remember if u get like Shoq 503/4=125.75 restores add 1 he and u will get 126 or leave 3 and get 125 ALso, the input values (all the 9s) were reset to 2147483647 (signed integer max value). Just test if it's more than a reasonable amount (say, 24*60 - one day). lol... If you cast 9999999999999999999999999999999999999 restores in 9999999999999999999999999999999999999 mins its the same as casting 1 restore in 1 min... so no problem here... You will get the same result and the 2147483647... thats 4085 years... we can think in other scrip when EL get to that time of life.... The point isn't the values, it's the fact that there is insufficient validation - either client or server side. It's basic shit man!
  9. SCRIP - How many He's & Sr's to go training

    Might wanna stick some validation in there... Try these values: 9999999999999999999999999999999999999 500 9999999999999999999999999999999999999 This produced: ALso, the input values (all the 9s) were reset to 2147483647 (signed integer max value). Just test if it's more than a reasonable amount (say, 24*60 - one day).
  10. Can't pick up items

    This bug is age old, yet noone seems to want to fix it >< Vegar and I did various testing attempting to reproduce it; we managed and came to the conclusion it wasn't a client bug (somewhat obvious really) IIRC.
  11. Players Online [SOLVED]

    It may be an issue with your ISP caching the page? All seems a bit bizarre if you ask me. Can you get a screenie of the page you see, both your original URL and the link posted above?
  12. Tattoos and Piercings

    ROFL! Personally I have 16 piercings, 11 on my head (ears, nose, lips and tongue), 2 on my chest (one on each nipple) and 3 elsewhere. I also have an angel tatoo and my mum's name on my right shoulder. Talk about a Pork Shishcabob. Good job I was lieing
  13. EL Network Protocol Documentation

    Great. At the moment we really need trade documentation and the completion of 'Server to Client' and 'Client to server'. A comprehensive list of Item Image IDs is also required (we have other ways of getting this info, though).
  14. Linux newbie needs help

    To clarify, it's the #data_dir configuration; ensure that's pointing to the base (e.g. /home/yourname/eternallands/) of the EL installation directory.
  15. Linux newbie needs help

    Make sure you have the following installed: libSDL libSDL_net Cal3d-0.10.0 (the version is important) OpenGL drivers for your Graphics card

  17. Someone got real mad...

    This is payback time from the GLF for Learner's mistreatment of the Gnomes!!!!!
  18. A button for the notepad

    You're correct, Vegar. Most of the buttons on the notepad need propper alignment (ATM, they're just sitting on top of eachother). Apart from that, the notepad is fully functional. Saving/reading the notes works great! [EDIT] Typos
  19. Animation smoothing

    My FPS is usually 15-30. When I recompiled the client I moved to a built-up area - Idaloran village with buildings and VoTD Storage. Around those areas it was generally 10-20. I didn't see anything significant other than more resyncs, didn't notice much with regards animation smoothing.
  20. Animation smoothing

    I'm getting more resyncs with this option than before :\ AMD64 3000+, GeForce 440 Go, GNU/Linux, latest NVIDIA drivers.
  21. Linux version of EL client

    Check rpmfind.net for a Cal3D version 0.10.0. You'll need the dev libs too, but there should be plenty of RPMs flying about.
  22. Linux version of EL client

    You need the correct Cal3D lib, which may be the wrong version in your package manager. IIRC, the correct Cal3D libs version for EL is 10.0.0.
  23. Trade Bot Source

    You don't compile Perl, it's an interpreted language. Install the Perl libs. and binaries (in Windows use ActiveState Perl). Then just run using 'perl filename.pl'.
  24. Forum Skin

    I think it looks great The post redirect page needs fixing though (shows a compilation of default and new skin)
  25. EL Network Protocol Documentation

    done. http://wiki.beplacid.com/EL_Colors ... if you don't want separate pages, just merge it into the protocol page, but I don't like pages that are too long Thanks. The colours are needed and yes the page is getting rather long. I am in favour of just linking to the colours page as it is not crucial to the protocol (as in, things'll work without it)
