Re: MUSH on Wine - Saving Window States +

Reply to: Note 7716 posted by Fiendish

Had some issues w/ Wine Stable regarding dependancies but 100% certain
it's lack of knowledge.  I did come across Wine Bottler which worked
great after adding Pytlak's resolution argument.  Did take me a few times
as I kept trying to save the new Aardwolf.app file in the Win32 source
directory, creating a recursive copy which I didn't notice until I had a
134gb Aardwolf.app :)
 
Thanks all for help, glad to finally have windowing states resolved and
getting off PlayOnMac is a huge bonus too as I think they're a dead project.
 
Cheers, Cytan

MSI is n't a bad branch, but add "Wal-Mart" and you get weary.
 
Here is what I'd loook for if you're trying to go that route:
 
1) Integrated or Dedicated Graphics?  IF integrated, just walk away.  I don't 
if it's that popular Intel 6xxHD chips, if it's integrated walk away.  I did
test out a Yoga 920 and a Asus Zenbook 3 Pro, both very decent systems with 8th
gen processors, but couldn't play anything past Medium settings.  I did
end up playing with using a GeForce 1070 with an Aorus eGPU box, thosse work
very well but have to drop another $600 or so bucks on it.
 
2) CPU Generation.  So all Intel CPU's have a model like i7 8550u.  The
first number represents which generation chip it is - in this case, 8th gen.
8th gen is most recent and been out for almost a year now, so to ensure 
you don't go obsolete almost immediately stick with an 8th gen.  On
those, the major difference between i5 and i7 (and i9) is 4-, 6-, and 8-core
chipsets.  I'm a fan of "buy expensive, buy once" philosophy, so if you can
afford it go i7. i9 is a bit overkill.  If not, i5 should be fine as you're
really dependant on the GPU, not CPU, for gaming.  Levels may load slower,
but most of the work is on the GPU.
 
When going to Wal-Mart, I'm betting they're a good deal because a) materials
and quality, but more likely b) that damn Intel 6xx chipset.  A lot
of people say it's damn near a dedicated GPU.  2 laptops with that chipset
and a eGPU with 8GB vRAM later, well... it was an expensive lesson.  Great
chips for everything except for gaming.

Thanks for the suggestion - ran into some issues but can be expected since
I'm using PlayOnMac instead of Wine directly, but gives me a good reason to
actually learn and use Wine itself.
 
Thanks again, Cytan

MUSH on Wine - Saving Window States
 
This is not an Aardwolf MUSHClient defect so not looking for a solution there.
Instead my issue is with Wine - it seems to always want to start on MacOS
in maximum window size (not full screen).  Even though my main working
area in MUSH is very small, and I've gone through all of the Wine configs
I could find, I can't seem to resolve this so reaching out to Wine or
PlayOnMac users who may have had this issue and found a resolution.
 
Thanks, Cytan

For iPad users
 
I impulsively purchased an iPad a few years ago thinking it was going to
be a life changer when it fact it became a dust collector.  Just never really
used it or had reason to include it in my Apple ensemble of gear.
 
Came across this really great app called Duet Display which is $20 and turns
your iPad into an external monitor via the charging cable.  Tested on Mac
and Win10 and worked pretty well!  Very neat to have a portalable and
lightweight display if you need it.
 
Oh and for you OCD folks like me who love maximizing every damn window you'll
be happy to know that MUSHclient fits perfectly maximized on an iPad :)

Re: Mendaloth Tracker + Fiendish Aard Channels +

Reply to: Note 7677 posted by Abelinc

Thanks Abelinc for explaining that - I actually understood all of it! :)
 
I don't know how many people ask for something like this, and if it's enough
to put in an enhancement in his backlog, but I did find a way aroudn this.
Since the first tab is the only one that can successfully capture
storeFromOutside it made sense to disable all channels and info on the first
tab which would then result in exactly what I was wanting - just Tracker :)
Rename it, create new tab called All, add the channels, boom!
 
Thanks again for the explanation and looking into why / how it worked.

Mendaloth Tracker + Fiendish Aard Channels
Note #7676
posted on Tech
Thursday, May 31, 2018 @ 00:30
I use Mendaloths Tracker which is a fake channel I dump log data into that
I don't want to spam channels with.  If you don't know how it works,
in a nutshell it uses Aardwolfs "echo" command.
 
I also use Fiendish's Aard Channels plugin which comes default with AardMUSH
and utilize tabs.  So I have one for All, Group, and Clan.  I noticed that
tracker @x208Repop @x247caravan @x208(@x24700:27:11@x208)
the default tab, All, does successfully collect the Tracker channel (echo)
which is great.  But I want to create another tab just for Tracker logs.
I noticed that "echo" is not an option in Tab Capture Settings > Edit Channel
Captures, and even if I enable every one of them, Tracker (echo) still does
not show up.
 
Is there a way to get echo's to show up in a custom tab?  Or is that something
hardcoded to the default tab which is why it's showing up there, but not the
custom tab with all channels selected?
 
Thanks, Cytan
Channel Plain Color Setting
Note #39886

Channel Plain Color Setting
 
Main purpose with this idea is for users who want to keep colors on,
but not for channels - those would stay whatever your colorset is
defined as.
 
The reason is for channel messages that get crazy like this:
 
X barters: [bid @x180800] @x046(@x231Shiny@x046) @x196<-- @x226L33Tst player in @x196Aardwolf! 
@x046*hic* [Lvl 134@x177 Body] [28@x214 Pts] [@x027S] [5 DR|5 HR|11 @x039Dex|6 @x039Luck|40 @x228Hp|20 @x228Mn]
 
(Imm)@x081 Y barks loudly at a Tir-via Point Token to KNOCKITDOWN, he 
can only lan lan suck thumb just follow order lah.

Instead with this setting, it would come through (with default colorset)
as:
 
X barters: [bid 800] (Shiny) <-- L33Tst player in Aardwolf!
*hic* [Lvl 134 Body] [28 Pts] [S] [5 DR|5 HR|11 Dex|6 Luck|40 Hp|20 Mn]
 
(Imm) Y barks loudly at a Tir-via Point Token to KNOCKITDOWN, he 
can only lan lan suck thumb just follow order lah.
 
Or perhaps this setting already exists but if not, with messages like
gt :can now quest
those and Wars making her messages with 20 colors so it looks like a rainbow,
I'd like to see it happen.

A Day of Double
Note #27562
posted on General
Tuesday, April 24, 2018 @ 13:04
As a first and perhaps a record that will not be reached for a very long
time, DjVoltron is about to reach redo #100.  Doing some math ...
 
 
DjV:
((7 remorts * (9 tiers + 99 redos) * 0.25 hours) + (2.4m mobs * 1 hour) =
    191.4 hours = 
    7.9 days double
 
Global:
1.162b mob deaths = 1,162h double / 24 hours per day = 48.41 days
 
7.9 days / 48.41 days = 16.3% of all double done by DjV alone.

Let's make it a true 1/6th by adding another day!! *w00t*

Order of examine/read objects
Note #39548

raidp list
Currently it seems equipment (worn or not) takes priority of room objects
with read/example.  For example ...
 
> eq
[ Worn on left finger ]: (K)(M)(G)(H) (Polished) gold signet (200)
 
> look
Aylorian Elemental Designs
  An old brain teaser asks, "What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton
of lead?"  At Aylorian Elemental Designs the answer is, "Which can you
afford to make weigh more?"  These powerful elemental mages have been
disregarding the physics of mass times acceleration for generations!  This
section of the shopette platform is lined with a collection of odd items,
and the elementalists shout for the edification of the crowd: "Come!  See
the feather that weighs as much as a boulder!  See the anvil that is lighter
than a handful of grass clippings!"  The elementalists have prepared a SIGN
for those interested in their services.  
 
> read sign
This golden signet signifies that the wearer has reached the mage rank of 
gold. The ring is warm to the touch, and molds to your hand. Runes have been 
carved into the inside of the band. You can sense the power, but are unable 
to comprehend the significance.

Wondering if there would be much effort into changing order of objects for 
commands to be room -> mob -> equipment -> inventory (or some other order
that would make more sense).  Not sure if the current order has a purpose,
but if not, I'd like to suggest a more logical order that would make
sense.

Thank you Guinness for correcting, and acknowledging this was an issue.  As

- Remove 1 PKdeaths from me;
- Remove 467 PKkills from Cackle;
- Remove 218 PKkills from Stronger;
- Remove 32 PKkills from Toneloc;
- remove 163 PKdeaths from Fiendish.

Loners + PK
 
From 'help loner':
 
Loner is a special flag that is added to a character which prevents them
from being recruited into other clans.  This is a good way to show that you
are not interested in joining any clan.  You will show as a Loner in who,
whois, finger, etc., as if a member of any other clan; however, Loners are
not able to PK or take part in clan wars.
 
That is no longer the case with OPK/Hardcore.

Issue w/ simple shell copy script
Note #7550
posted on Tech
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 @ 08:42
Scratching my head on this and I'm sure it's completely obvious, but having an
issue with this script:
 
#!/usr/bin/env sh

DROPBOX_DIR="$HOME/Dropbox/backups/"

declare -a files=(
   "$HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Bookmarks"
   "$HOME/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/Aardwolf/drive_c/Program\ Files/
      MUSHclient/Aardwolf.db"
   "$HOME/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/Aardwolf/drive_c/Program\ Files/
      MUSHclient/worlds/Aardwolf.mcl"
)

for i in "${files[@@]}
   do cp "$i" "$DROPBOX_DIR"
done
 
The script executes fine but it can't find the files in the array, "No such
file or directory".  I have verified this is not true two ways:
1) change do cp ... -> do echo cp ... and copy and paste the output into
terminal, and it works.  So the files exist and the directories are right.
2) copy the file referrenced in the error, and edit it in vim:
   cp: /Users/cytan/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/
   Bookmarks: No such file or directory
   -> vim /Users/cytan/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/Default/
      Bookmarks
   ... and this too works.
 
Any ideas?  I have verified it has nothing to do with escaping the space in
the file paths by using a file that has a path without any spaces, and that
fails too.

Invsort filtering
Note #37858
posted on Ideas
Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 06:49
I think it would be beneficial to have a filter available on invsort.  I'm not
sure how popular this command is used over "l in bag" but as I collected
sets and more and more stuff, it has become useful.  I know you can group by
types such as level, wear, etc., but would it be possible to add a filter that
would accompany the sorttype parameter?  For example:
 
invsort level bag 171 (invsort bag 171)
invsort wear bag head
 
And this would return only matching items, providing a much shorter invsort
list.  I hope others may find same kind of value from this, thoughts?

Not sure if relevant as you're saying "real installers" instead of packages
that push deltas, but it would benefit Wine or PlayOnMac users as well.  There
is a defect where an update gets released, the popup shows that says 'Get It'
or 'Ignore' and as soon as you interact with that window, or let ~5 seconds
pass, Wine pushes that window out of focus and into the background.
Unfortunately this means the main client window can't be interacted with
because it doesn't have the focus.  The only way I have found to get by
with this is to be very, very quick and multiple attempts, but even having
the mouse in the right position and clicking Ignore immediately doesn't
always work - or, what does, is find a way to slow down your system enough to
allow that delay.  In creating a demo video for you, I found screen recording
software slows it down enough that you can click on Ignore fast enough.  I've
helped others who are interested in Mac+Mush, even doing remote support like
TeamViewer, so having a separate installer and not this window would be
excellent for Mac users.
 
May be related, probably not, but does push for the need to have independant
raidp list
installers instead of delta updates.

That's awesome :) I've been using tt++ for a long time, and is why I can't use
Mush.  Once you know the language, its awesome :)

I appreciate yoru response using Terminator and urxvt, and one thing I've ben
experimenting using is Docker - is a container-based system commonly used in
DevOps.  I've been playing with it as a Cygwin alternative to run Linux
raidp list
applications without a true VM, and so far is amazing.  If I get a Docker
version of this set up w/ Terminal, will send instructions but for those
who are faster and better than me, look into Docker.  Containerization is a 
pretty amazing concept in IT and VM, and may be the future of how we MUD in a
short amount of time.

Will look forward to that, and hope to be with it along the way.
Gets rid of the OS/build dependancies... pretty great stuff :)

Experimenting with iTerm2 for its' split window feature, looking for something
equivalent to Terminator on Linux which can do this so I have Aard panels.
Does great - can even use trackpad scroll to scroll in Vim of all things! But
in tintin++, I notice you cannot scroll.  Even with setting memory to Unlimited
for output buffer, you can't scroll at all.  Turned on Aard page feature for
now, which helps with some things but not all -- I don't think I'll get any
help since there are so few tt++ users and even fewer with stacking on iTerm,
but curious if anyone has had both and found a way to scroll?

PS:  To save responses, no, I will not use Mush so skip it :) No offense
to the develops/users of its addons, but I can't stand it.

Siris found an old post that explains this @@
http://www.aardwolf.com/blog/2015/10/21/vaults-tpenchant/

The 2nd and 3rd points under TPEnchant mentions that if you solidify,
only accounts for +4 and since I had +5, I couldn't do the last TP
enchant.  Retracting this as bug, but think it should be added to help
tpenchant and/or help solidify, as the current help file doesn't
include this.

Cannot max tpenchant solidified weapon
Note #17320
posted on Bugs
Tuesday, March 14, 2017 @ 12:58
Have been working on a 291 weapon via tpenchanting.  
Before reaching max enchant I solidified which added
+5HR.  I continued tpenchanting and have it to +144dr,
+149hr.  Now when I attempt to do the last tpenchant I
receive an error saying it cannot be enchanted anymore.

While I understand it is possible itâs because of the
solidify, if that were true then I would have seen the
error message at +140dr +145hr because it wouldnât have
let me go to +146hr.

According to help file, âYou may be 1 below max and get 
a +2 enchant, thus ending up 1 over the maximum
this 
is not a bug.â

Since the solidify isnât the reason, and the help file suggests
It is allowed, I should be able to do one more tpenchant to
Reach 291/2 = 145.

Four recommendations, each their own goodness:

Monolingual:  Gets rid of unnecessary binaries from applications, as well as
unwanted language files.

raidp list
CCleaner:  Pretty common on Windows, so you probably know about it.  Same for
Mac, but without the registry cleaner.  Not bad...

AppCleaner:  This is basically an uninstaller you drag unwanted applications 
to.  What it does that simple deletion does not, is scan for application
caches, profiles, settings, etc.  Pretty thorough for a freeby.  If you want
paid, XSlimmer is a good alternative but I think AppCleaner is a good (and
free) competitor.

Onyx:  This I would do last, as it's the deep, deep clean.  Removes logs,
caches, temp files, rebuilds indexes, checks file permissions... pretty much
the Swiss Army Knife of Mac maintenance.  You may not need it with CCleaner,
but I use both (CCleaner first, then this) just out of habit.

Never have destroyed anything with these tools.  After using Onyx though,
reboot as it also cleans out several caches like font cache, so you'll
see weird crap like those square characters until you reboot.

Good luck!

I had similar issue in OS X and had to wait until they fixed the bug.  They
released a new EOS Utility with several bug fixes in December so make sure
you have the most updated.  Once I downloaded that version, when you click
on "Pair over WiFi" or whatever, and the firewall message comes up, you should
be able to just click "Yes" and it'll update the firewall rules engine for you.
If not, I'd have to assume it may be a router configuration you may have.  I'm
not sure which port EOS Utility uses to manually open it :/

As long as it is "for fun", +1.  The problem I'm seeing with ideas like this
it becomes a one-sided benefit, usually to high-powered T9's (OPK,
setwanted, etc. gets used in a way that only benefits them, and
ruins the "fun" for everyone else).

That seemed to still send the return carriage to the mud, resulting in
multiple prompts.  Found a way around this though by adding onto your code:
#variable {result} {#continue;}

This still pushes #continue command but since tt++ captures that, and it does
not return anything including return carriages, it makes functions effectively
null.

Thanks, Cytan

Yea, I was afraid of that.  Not a big deal, but several pieces of code is
getting reused (stat tracker, several ways go get qp/xp/etc) so wanted to
try to organize it a bit.

Thanks Robbo :)
Tintin - Null Functions?

In tt++ is there a way to have a null function?  For example:

#function {add_kill} {
@    #math {s_kills} {$s_kills + 1}
}

This is what I am wanting.  The problem is in tt++, you must have
either a returning value (0 be default) or it just takes
the last line result and assigns it to 0 (in this case, the
value of that math expression), and sends that to the MUD.

I prove this by modifying the above function and adding:
@    #variable {result} {0}

And when I call the function, @@add_kill{}, the MUD returns:
@    You yen to edify the hoi polloi with the fruits of your phr3@x0r!ing.

Which is the same output as if I just type 0 as a social.

How do I create a void function, or a null function, that returns
nothing but just executes a set of commands?  I know other languages
like VBScript would call this a subroutine, but thats not an option
in the tt++ language.

Thanks, Cytan

With OPK there may be someone who likes to PK during a barter exchange, or 
getting a spellup from Dexx, or even pull them in via wang.  Illegal?  No, just
unethical. 

raidp list
After watching the new season of Black Mirror, the idea of having a "like"
system may make sense.  Not saying it should be exactly like this but the idea
is everyone has a social score from 0.0 (bad rep) to 5.0 (super rep).  Other
players can rank someone they grouped with that was great, or gave them a SH
drag, or a spellup a positive review like a 4 or 5; where as if someone is
stalking you or just being an annoyonce in some manner such as the
forementioned examples, you can rank them a 1 or 2.  A player can only rank
another player one time.  Over time you'd see where some players would have a
low score like a 2.1 that may not be favorable for grouping or something,
or some are high score like a 4.7 and are favorable.

Don't know the mechanics that should be here and would be open discussion of
course, but just throwing the concept that Black Mirror had.  I think as
we start things like OPK, it may be an interesting concept.
