Client update test

Recommended Posts

This test is only for people who can read and understand English well, who are good with computers (can copy files, etc.) and who can follow instructions by the letter. If you are not one of those people, please do not try this as it can make the game unplayable.

 

[edit] THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH CUSTOM CLOTHING, SO TURN THAT OPTION OFF IF YOU HAD IT ON

 

Instructions, must be followed precisely!

For Windows:

1. Make a copy of your EL folder, this is important!

2. Get the file: http://www.eternal-lands.com/EternalLands-update_191_test.zip

3. Uncompress it in your El folder, or in a separate folder than move it to the EL folder in such a way that old files are overwritten!

4. Run el_test10.exe, then if it works delete the old el.exe and rename el_test10.exe as el.exe. Your old el.exe will NOT work with the new data!

5. If it doesn't work, delete the whole folder and restore your backup folder.

 

For Linux/OSX

Make a backup, download the same file as for Windows, uncompress them in the EL data folder, and compile the client from CVS, using the following compile options:

FEATURES += MORE_ATTACHED_ACTORS

# Enable more activities on horses

FEATURES += NECK_ITEMS

# Enables medallions/scarves

FEATURES += LARGE_TEXTURES

# Changes player character texture size block to 512x512.

 

If there are problems, and you know for SURE that you followed the instructions to the letter, please post here.

 

 

 

Things to test:

*Test the neck items by typing: #set_neck username #

where # can be from 0-13. Please test this as much as possible and if you notice anything strange with the models post screenshots!

 

*Also, we need testing done for fighting on horses! Type #horse username and a testing horse will show up for you to ride. Fight monsters, each other, during invasions, etc... change armor/weapons/magic try all kinds of things with this. Post screenshots and details of anything odd with the models or animations.

 

*And also post any screenshots from any clothing problems on the mesh, hair going through capes, odd things happening with any animations, etc..anything you may find that's odd.

The game works fine for me, still figuring out new features. One thing I noticed is there are "floating" iron ores in Naralik Catacombs. I tried to take a screenie, but hard to show the fact that the ores are in midair...

Can you try to update your video drivers? I am not sure what the problem is, but it really shouldn't happen if you copied the files properly. Try to download the 'patch' again and reinstall it again.

Oh, and are you sure you are copying the files in the DATA folder, rather than some older fodler that might not even be in use? When you start the client, it should display the data folder location.

I updated my driver - now at:

Video card: GeForce 8400M GS/PCI/SSE2

Vendor ID: NVIDIA Corporation

OpenGL Version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 8.17.12.6099

 

I'm using Vista and did have to reassign my #data_dir to "c:programs (x86)\eternal lands" in my el.ini file

 

I reinstalled the patch and i experience the same problem. I'll delete everything and redo tomorrow.

Working fine here.

Love the new textures.

 

Few questions:

Are the medallions wearable now? Don't seem to come up so I assume not but just checking as the files are there.

 

The NPC boxes no longer have an X in the corner to close is this on purpose? (I keep trying to use it lol)

 

Last thing is I noticed it a while ago but seems more noticeable now with this update, Have the EL models been checked for duplicate polygons/points/lines or consistency with double/single sided polygons? Sometimes it seems shadows form in strange ways on the face and also in some other objects. In animation it's generally one of the above issues but it could be just the way EL renders I'm not sure.

The medallions are not wearable yet, but the client supports this.

The NPC box doesn't have the X in the corner because it was never supposed to have it.

If you see a graphic problem, screenshots pls.

Seems to work ok, I got one crash (segfault) w/o further info

But, I get a lot of the following messages in my error log:

I've installed el_test10 test client onto my desktop computer which is running Windows XP with an old graphics driver;

 

Video card: RADEON X800 Series x86/SSE2

Vendor ID: ATI Technologies Inc.

OpenGL Version: 2.0.6590 WinXP Release

 

The install seems to be running well.

 

[EDIT] Very nice textures - you can tell that a lot of effort has gone into them!! Emotes are cool and meshes look fantastic!!

 

 

My original problem is with my Vista laptop which I'll reinstall later today.

I've produced Linux executables for 32 bit and 64 bit. They are build to work on many Linux distributions, if the 1.9.0 release executables worked for you then so should these as I've build them in the same way. Once downloaded, make sure you change the file permissions to be executable. The full download page for these files is here.

The client just crashed for me too. It was as I was approaching naralik storage, a few people were sitting around the NPC, it crashed right as they started coming into view.

I wasn't running it from a terminal so don't have output from there. Then I n00bed out really hard and opened the client 2 times without thinking to look in error_log's. However, the first time I opened it after crashing when those same people were still at/near nara sto, I did get:

[01:18:00] unable to add an attached actor: illegal/missing actor definition 255
Last message repeated 7 times
[01:18:15] Client closed (BUT this was me closing the client, not it crashing)

in the error log. I noticed Revi got the same, so makes me think it's related.
