opk timers
Note #16567
posted on Typos
Thursday, May 10, 2018 @ 12:30
Help file and opk command both show incorrect timers:
 
>help opk
The flag can be set at any time but cannot be removed for 3 days once it
is set unless you remort / retier. Once the flag is manually removed, it
cannot be added for 24 hours.
 
>opk on confirm
You now have the (@x165OPK) flag and can be killed in any room
by other PK or OPK players. While you are in OPK mode you will 
receive 10% more experience and bonus quest/campaign rewards. The OPK
flag cannot be removed until you remort or 3 days have passed.
 
Also second line of that output should be "in OPK mode, you will"

New helpfile suggestion

There appears to be no helpfile pointing to the command:
"protocols gmcp rawcolor"
None of : JSON, GMCP or rawcolor at least.
I use mudlet and was getting a JSON error on every
colored roomname, as my client failed to interpret the GMCP var.
The above were what I searched for as I recall.
It was not until asking a wise old player by chance on Tech
that the already made but unadvertised solution to my problem was known.
Seems that a small helpfile with a couple links would save time and
energy.

Since we're in a diner, deserts -> desserts

Default is likely just a coincidence.  Looks like the colors are overridden
in the long name for the mob.

Lady Maltesa, in the same room, has red coloring, for instance.

I think it's the third task of the Area Goal where you pick up
a parchment from Jod in Observation Deck.
 
Point 3 on the parchment reads:
"...the yeast monster have been fermenting on their own."

I understand what you're trying to convey, but this statement is wrong.
Maybe say "targets of very highly-experienced players" or "targets of
high-powered players", but the term "level" in "high level players" has 
a pretty specific meaning that is counter to how OPK works (unlike Hardcore).

You find a |P[Poker Card]P| special item hidden in the corpse!
QUEST: You have almost completed your QUEST!
Return to the questmaster before your time runs out.
You get |7[Seven of Earth]7| from the corpse of a Sea Snake Jailor.
You get 631 gold coins from the corpse of a Sea Snake Jailor.
Captain Morgan gives you 28 gold coins for the corpse of a Sea Snake Jailor.

I guess it makes sense as far as 'determine what's on the corpse' vs 'get
 from corpse', but maybe they could be together the
way gold items are immediately get item, show gold value?

I'm not sure if this is true for all races, but at the very least, help vampire
base stats are wrong.
 
I just did a rebuild, and each stat was 2 higher than what's listed under the
help file. Perhaps these need to all be updated (or a new command to show the
base stats for all like raceinfo all does for stat costs!)

It doesn't seem like Deadlights has caught up with the "now" times. We
shouldn't have mobs that span multiple lines to say something, such as the
following:
 
A greater karmic being says 'Loyalty and goodness are virtues that must'
 
A greater karmic being says 'be respected and honored above all others'
 
A greater karmic being says 'and with the greatest care. I see that you'
 
A greater karmic being says 'are battle-honed, if nothing else.'
 
A greater karmic being says 'Thus, you deserve this.'
 
Ardendantilus says 'Finally, someone has come!'
 
Ardendantilus says 'I'm afraid it's too late for us.. our universe is already'
 
Ardendantilus says 'dead as ashes. But others can be saved, and we will try'
 
Ardendantilus says 'anything that might avenge our futile deaths and overthrow'
 
Ardendantilus says 'the Dark One.'
 
Banterus says 'That creeping wall of death is growing closer and closer.'
 
Banterus says 'It may be over for us, but if you can travel into that'
 
Banterus says 'blinding insanity and slay the beast there, it may'
 
Banterus says 'be of some use to the salvation of all worlds. The creature'
 
Banterus says 'stole something from us long ago. Although we've forgotten'
 
Banterus says 'how to use it, if you can activate it or find someone who'
 
Banterus says 'can, then all is not lost.'
 
Those three mobs alone could be cleaned up, and I'm sure there are probably
others that fit the mold, too. Thanks!
