Search and Destroy v2.0 beta
Friday, July 27, 2018 @ 06:27
Good morning everyone, For the first 10 years of its life, Search and Destroy was a set of 3 plugins, and without going into details I defined that as version 1. As long as it followed that general format, it would be version 1 regardless of any other updates. Search and Destroy no longer follows that format, and as such we now have a version 2. This is a marked improvement, because unlike before, it's a single plugin, with all the benefits that entails. Search and Destroy v2.0 is currently in beta, available via my whois/finger info. If you wouldn't mind checking it out and reporting any crashes, bugs, or other issues to me, that would be great. So far as I know, it works and is stable enough, based on initial test results. Feel free to break it any way you can, and let me know when you do. Please be advised, that as a beta version it's expected that there will be some problems, e.g. crashes, glitches, things not looking right, or things that don't work at all. Let me know when you find them. I'm looking to take it out of beta in a couple of weeks, depending on feedback. Good luck, Starling

Reply to: Note 27624 posted by Starling the obvious solution is to fork the source tree, develop both options in tandem, and then allow the next maintainer to worry about all the bugs that would be introduced by re-integrating the two trees. https://xkcd.com/2021
Search and Destroy advice.
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 @ 07:03
Due to some misconduct involving a wetsuit, two penguins, and some other things I can't talk about (ongoing investigation) I was forced to return from my antarctic vacation ahead of schedule. Travel expenses non- refundable, of course, but at least the trip was memorable. Search and Destroy updates are in the works but I'd like some advice on how best to proceed. Basically, I'm looking at two options: 1) Maintain the status quo (three separate plugins) and just keep fixing problems as they're found. This would mean 1.3.6, and so on. 2) Search and Destroy 2.0.0, which would be a single plugin built by merging the existing three. The benefits with this would be removing a lot of duplicated / redundant code as well as the cross-plugin chatter that is at the root of several ongoing complications. Option 1 is easy, familiar, and fairly straightforward, but has issues. Option 2 is probably not easy, will be a fundamental change, but would ultimately solve the issues with keeping three plugins on track. What do you all want? Starling

Reply to: Note 27621 posted by Lasher | It was a permanent channel ban or a nuke. | | It is none of your business. | It's not, except how do you reconcile that with someone like me still having channels? Unless she did something worse, but knowing her and knowing myself I have a hard time believing it. But I wasn't there, so maybe she did. I'm with you in that bad behavior needs to be stopped but I think DjVoltron is also right to advocate and question as he did. What you did for me, taking the risk and putting it on me to do right is one of the kindest things anyone has done for me, ever, and I guess what I'm getting at is that I would want others to have that too.

Reply to: Note 27620 posted by DjVoltron Abe logs all, so any player can search for what was said and determine for themselves whether the content was racist, other 'ist, against rules, etc. if they care enough. what is not seen is private interactions with imm in says, tells, and boards. I would bet your friend exacerbated the problem in her comms with the staff or Lasher. These are not made public so you just have to trust the right decision was made. And sure, the Power makes mistakes sometimes, but if a player falls in the forest of the player population and makes no noise, does anyone notice or care? Nope.

Reply to: Note 27619 posted by Crowley Hah. Ever hear of an advocate? What's wrong with standing up for your friends? I'm not presuming anything, I simply said there may not be a reminder or way to know unless they wrote a note to themselves or just have a great memory. I don't know the inner workings of the command nor do I care to. Just saying the time the ban has been on for the offense is a tad insane. Yeah I have one side of the story, that's all that available. If I had more to go on maybe my opinion would be different, but I doubt it. Like I said people constantly say worse and nothing happens. Sure Tzad can speak for herself, and so can the imm staff.
Re: Chan bans.
Monday, July 16, 2018 @ 21:40
Reply to: Note 27617 posted by DjVoltron As much as Tzad talks about it, I'm pretty sure the Imms are still very aware of her channel ban, so I wouldn't presume to think the Imms are forgetful or negligent in their roles and just needs a "reminder" to remove it. Not that I'm against her getting channels back, but I don't think it's anyone's position to say whether time has been served or not. You only hear one side of the story, and the Imms typically do not provide their side of the story because they don't have to. So while in your eyes it may seem unjustified, it may very well be justified in someone else's eyes. The only one who should really be speaking for her should be herself. She can email Lasher if she has no other way of communication (notes, tells, channels, etc). Mr. Crowley

Monday, July 16, 2018 @ 21:28
So someone on my flist (Tzadkiel) has been chan banned for over a year or something silly like that. Why? For a joke made in poor taste on imm channel. Why is someone chan banned for that long for a bad choice when we still have people like Raded and Trez that do this on a daily basis without repercussion?! I could maybe see a few weeks or months if the joke was made on a channel like gossip, but imm talk? Where cursing is allowed and the normal content is just a step above the nonsense open north gclan? My guess is the chans get taken away and there is not a reminder or some such for the imm staff to remove it. That would at least make sense as to why it's been on for so long, as Tzad hasn't made a fuss and asked for them back, because she knows she was in the wrong on this occasion, but the length of time is still overboard imo. Can we get that removed please? I think time has been served.

Monday, July 16, 2018 @ 07:24
Reply to: Note 27585 posted by Starphoenix Your brain recalls it just fine. Quest timers used to reset to zero after 12 hours offline. There was some issue with it when the definition of newbie was changed to be 300 hours online. People would do a quest, log off for 12 hours, log back on to zero qtime, quest, repeat. The result was that one could build a type of 'supernewbie' character with low hours but lots of qps. I forget why it was a problem or why it was removed.

Reply to: Note 27611 posted by Crowley Well I work on a military base. You know that joke about military intelligence right? Applies to the clocks sometimes too. But, if you're basing it off that, then I'd wonder if the server the game is hosted on is having some issues we're not aware of or maybe someone reprogrammed it to match their own personal watch.
Re: System time +
Friday, July 6, 2018 @ 10:33
Reply to: Note 27610 posted by Starphoenix >It is off based on what exactly? Well, considering the server is in the United States, and considering there is an "official US time" server, why don't we go off the assumption that it's not matching the official US time? You can easily check it here: https://time.gov/ Also, provide proof that "you can check 30 different governement clocks and they'll all be off +/- 5 minutes of each other" because I just checked a few of them already, and there was no difference between them all. Even the time in Fort Carson seems to be synced to the official time. But still, it should be based off the official US time. Mr. Crowley
Re: System time
Friday, July 6, 2018 @ 10:14
Reply to: Note 27608 posted by Crowley It is off based on what exactly? You can check 30 different government clocks and they'll all be off +/- 5 minutes of each other. I have two atomic clocks (one tuned to Fort Carson, the other tuned to my local base) and the clocks are off by 3 minutes and 57 seconds. The reason? Altitude difference of the clocks plus various attunements. If the system time were off by more than 15 minutes i'd worry that something was wrong with the system it was running off of (whever the server is at). To put this in perspective, my wall clock that I tuned with my Fort Carson clock is off by 9 minutes since Jan 1st of last year.
Re: System time
Thursday, July 5, 2018 @ 20:04
Reply to: Note 27608 posted by Crowley Uptime is around 4 minutes and 55 seconds fast compared to most people's clock. I have wondered why it is off that much.
Thursday, July 5, 2018 @ 16:42
It's been brought up before, but system time is lagging behind now. As I looked at the clock and system time, it's about 5 minutes behind. It's been gradually falling more and more behind, too. First it was a couple minutes, then three, four, now five, and who knows how long until it's 6 minutes, or even 10 minutes behind. Is there anything that can be done to correct that? Mr. Crowley

Reply to: Note 27593 posted by Teasert Pancjo has a key because he's an overseer (i.e. supervisor, boss). Chaprenula told you who to look for, try looking for them and interacting.
About the goal: Chaprenula
Friday, June 22, 2018 @ 10:14
In the goal information, It shows as below: The products of Chaprenula's madness are barely under his control, and some of the more intelligent members of his staff are working on a plan to end the madness. Perhaps you can help! In the area Chaprenula, I read all room desc and listen npc. Manserat exclaims, "You must pay attention to all aspects of these experiments, otherwise, kaboom!" Chaprenula says, "Working here requires a lot of attention and diligence. One must be creative and not ever give up." Smiling, he says, 'The best creations come after failure. Manserat and Rachia know that.' Pancjo exclaims, "Rachia has been lax in her duties lately. If one more creature escapes, I'm going to have her head!" Pacho asks, "Pokey here doesn't like visitors, do you buddy?" Pacho says, "I gotta feed him something nice and juicy." I haven't found the clue to how to start the goal. OK, Then, I kill all mob and npc, until kill the Pancjo and get a key. Why? Why do you kill Pancjo to get the key? Just because he said "I'm going to have Rachia's head" ?

Reply to: Note 27588 posted by Redryn Many, many players are taciturn when it comes to information about solving goals. Try not to let it get to you. When you started that goal, you were told what you needed to accomplish, but not how to do it. Many, many, MANY steps in goals involve using educated guessing at various commands (or saying certain phrases) in certain rooms to make progress. Some of these commands or phrases are specific and/or esoteric. Oftentimes you'll need to SAY a certain word or phrase to progress (almost certainly either in a specific room or in front of a specific mob). For the more reasonable goals, usually you just need to get one specific word (or a few) anywhere in your SAY command, and SOMETIMES (but not always) the goal will prompt you further by highlighting that word or capitalizing it. In either case, it's a really good idea to read what you're told carefully and USE THE SAME WORDS YOU JUST READ when attempting to solve the goal. It also helps to have a list of common commands that are used in goals. NOD, SMILE, BOW, BECKON, AGREE, "say yes", "say no" are good ones. If English is not your primary language, this aspect of the game may be more challenging for you. As you've certainly discovered, some players are sympathetic to your struggling with this aspect of the game, some are disinterested, and some are (to varying degrees) antagonistic toward you. That will never change, but you'll find that as you do the easier goals, you'll learn that many goals do, to some degree, share common designs and solution patterns and it does get easier. Your first few can be pretty rough. Good luck.

Reply to: Note 27587 posted by Escobar It says at the start... You say 'sign me up' Radel says, "Excellent! The crowds will enjoy this. Go and make yourself known to the reigning champion, announce your intention to challenge him. I am sure he will be...happy...to meet you." ** Goal Added : Win the tournament in Tournament Camps. ** Task Added : Defeat the champion of the tournament in the arena.

Reply to: Note 27586 posted by Teasert It sounds like you missed a LOT. 'help goal-solving' is a file you may want to read. Also, the 'task here' command is a fairly useful one, to get hints to help you solve the goal. Finally, you *can* use the Q&A channel to ask for help on the goal, however, do not expect to be walked through it. General hints are allowed, to help you look for things you might be missing. -Escobar

I am do the goal: Tournament Camps at Level 13. First, I listen man at Central square to start the task 1. After, I read all listen and room desc, but don't found how to step the next task. After I waste five hours, I question other player, get the key: in The Champions' Quarters room, SAY i challenge you. I'm realy how to know about why should say "i challenge you", It is any clue from anything? Write this note, so that people will not spend 5 hours like me.

Reply to: Note 27584 posted by Impurifan once upon a time in the ancient past qtimers used to cycle offline. unless of course my equally ancient brain is not recalling it properly.

Someone proposed on ideas the notion of running qtimers while offline. At first it seemed silly, but then it got me thinking. Some people really like questing, right? you get the random mob random experience, variable reward... all good elements to a pleasurable game loop. in fact questing has been core to aard for decades. So player suggests more of this with offline timers. obviously there is demand. is there a design problem with zatisfying it? I played actively many years ago. Questing was a limiter of sorts on how quickly one can advance. since then, all game resources are MUCH easier to obtain, even qp. heck, campaign with winklebot plugin and one can pile up qp on a single char for almost 100 percent of playtime. Exp, trains, I/M/ P are all resource sinks. Is qp still so important that offline timers isca terrible idea? say someone created 100 alta to nonstop quest, is there realistically material abuse possible? is it worse or different than, say, farming 100 daily blessings?

Reply to: Note 27581 posted by Starphoenix Text is hard to get right when streaming, but it will come down to resolution and bitrate. Fortunately, if you are only streaming text, frame rate can be sacrificed if you have problems dropping frames due to lack of processing power or throughput.

I have been trying to setup a way to live stream Aardwolf. Biggeest issue right now is getting it to where the text just doesn't look blurry on playback. Assuming I get it setup correctly, I have been pondering the privacy matter and based on your suggestions I think I have come up with a good way to do it while retaining privacy. Streaming Aardwolf wouldn't be much different from streaming World of Warcraft or similar graphical MMOs. Outside of the "private" stuff like my clan hall and private channels I think I have most of it sorted out. Once I attempt it, I will let the entire MUD know about it, so nobody happens to hear about it later and balks at it. If I get it setup right, I will communicate it as openly as possible what I will try to do and when and then get it setup so my miniwindows don't display maps and stuff. Things I will never stream: Epic runs & Clan raids, assuming I am ever a part of one of these when I finally attempt it. There is still the matter of the goal/task system as well that I may not want to stream and just maybe focus on levelling and farming. Not really sure if it is feasible. No timeframe on when I might actually try it.
