  1. A great many things have changed during this recent maintenance of our forums. Forum Software Upgrade First and foremost, we have upgraded our forums to the latest version of IPS Community Suite. This brings with it a number of new features and improvements including an updated anti-spam service, a number of updates to the Editor, and a new way to embed content from other sites. We have also added a new feature that allows you to easily share content from our forums to your social media accounts. More Updates! Various 3rd-Party plugins have been updated to mitigate bugs and to ensure compatibility with the new version of the forums. If you notice any issues with the forums, please let us know in the Forum Issues sub-forum.. forum forum. Forum Themes The default IPS nasty white theme has been removed. The Dark theme is now the only option, for the benefit of your eyes, and so I don't have to update two themes when I change something. The forum upgrade has reverted some of our custom changes to the Dark theme, such as various layout template changes, links being removed, buttons being moved to somewhere else, etc. Some of them will return, while others will not. The link for Account Credit will return when Paypal has approved our application_id, which was another new change I wasn't prepared for (because some of us don't like to read changelogs before updating...). Username Logins A number of older features within IPS have been deprecated and will be removed at a future date. One of these is the ability to allow username logins. Let's face it, it's a security risk. On Thursday 8th June, we will be removing the ability to login with your username. This will destroy your forum cookies, ending your sessions, forcing you to re-login. You will need to use your email address and password to login to the forums again. Merch and Tickets IPS are changing the way the IP.Commerce system works. This will affect the way we handle donations and subscriptions. We will be working on this over the next few weeks and will let you know when we have a solution in place. The long-and short of it is that they are removing support for physical products and the forum support ticket system in a future version. rA Merch hasn't existed on the forums for about a year (the link in the navigation goes to our Tee-Spring store, which no one has ever purchased from) so that isn't an issue. The support tickets are often ignored as it's just a bunch of users trying to get help with their rA server, which is not what they were originally designed for. We Moved We actually migrated hosts. Still with OVH, but a shiny new VM with tonnes more resources, all for almost the same price as the old one. The Crowdfunding descriptions are now slightly wrong, as we don't have the same costs for the listed products/services, although the total amount each month is ~$3 less. I'm not decreasing them, however, as the IPS license renewal still comes out of my pocket at a hefty $120/6mo. Traffic is still filtered through CloudFlare. rA Gaming Guilds & Teams At the back-end of last year, I asked you guys in our Discord server what your thoughts were on an rA Guild in various MMOs and a team for some MOBAs via a brief survey. The results were mixed, but in-all there was some good feedback. We will be opening up a few new channels in Discord over the coming weeks with information on where to find our guilds in whichever games we decide to play. We will also be looking for some Guild Leaders to represent us in games that rA Staff don't play. Please wait for further announcements on this. I think that's all? Probably. Akky out~
  2. Afternoon everyone! Many moons ago we migrated our wiki content to Github in an effort to alleviate resources on our VM, increase our data's stability and in-general, significantly reduce the number of things that could go wrong. That was the plan. The plan worked well enough on all three counts above, however, Github Wiki's have this wonderful knack of not doing what they're supposed to when you need them to be helpful. For example, users needing special permissions to push new content to it (until very recently this has been "maintainer" access only), which means everyone has to rely on rA Staff to update the Wiki, which we evidently haven't had much time for. Now there's a new kid on the block; User-Guides! Guides from the Wiki will slowly be migrated to our new User Guides site (which you can help with, if you want to), which is a HTML website hosted using Github Pages, automatically generated from Markdown files that are stored in a Github Repository. Neat, huh! View the site at https://rathena.github.io/user-guides/ Because this new guide platform is built on a git repo, it means that anyone can contribute to it by opening a Pull Request. I've written some guidance here: https://github.com/rathena/user-guides/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md "What about all those guides on the forums" I hear you ask. Let's face it, 20% of them don't make any sense, 30% of them are inaccurate, 90% of them are outdated, 100% of them are developed with either bias towards specific software tools or just badly written due to language barriers or laziness. Far too often are links to out-of-date guides re-posted on the forums and in Discord, and we can't keep them updated because they're forum posts so only Mods can edit them (which is not what they're here for). From now on, well-written guides are to be posted to the User Guides repo. Guides posted on these forums will result in a message being sent to the author stating why we're going to hide the thread and then give a link to this post. What can you NOT post to User Guides? rAthena is a software emulation project. As such, guides pertaining to 3rd Party Tools or software will not be approved. This includes "How-To's" regarding the client, which is not actually within the scope of the rAthena project. We don't want to be sued ?, thanks. We have a new channel in Discord called #user-guides for discussions related to this area of the project. We would be very happy to see you helping our effort to migrate and write good, informative guides for our community to use and keep updated for years to come! Next we'll be working on doing something very similar to our source's /doc/ directory! Akky~
  3. spawnnpc isn't a script command. No reason at all to create arrays for variables, and all those extra getarraysize commands.. Short answer: no, it cant. Don't be lazy.
  4. View File SMS Authentication for FluxCP This Addon will allow server owners to require SMS Authentication when players register their account. Players who are not logged in will be able to see a new link in the primary navigation for SMS Authentication. When they enter their account name and the code sent to them via SMS, the account will become unbanned and the player can login. There is a reasonable-sized readme file with instructions of what to do and where to register your account to access the API used in this Addon. Other APIs can be used but will not be supported. The code provided with the included function can be used in other areas of FluxCP with a little bit of rewriting. You're only limited by your imagination! After purchasing, send me a Discord DM with your rA Order ID and PingedOut email address and I'll get some free Credits added to your account for testing, or just to start you off.

  6. EXPIRED

    Re-Listing this funding in an effort to get the fees covered by the community. Our monthly fees: Web Hosting ($32) VPS Backup Drive ($13) 200GB Offsite NAS Sparkpost SMTP Relay ($10) So you all get the emails you're supposed to. Misc software renewals ($5) Forum apps and plugins that require license renewal every 6 months are broken down to a monthly value. There are other costs for back-end services which are specifically sponsored by individual members of the rAthena project so do not require community crowdfunding.
  7. If you had a legal team of any kind, they would tell you to stay the hell away from running a private server. Your team need to be fired. Also, this is not the correct location for hiring staff - see: https://rathena.org/board/jobs_available/
  8. Since we don't know what's also running on your PC, it's impossible for anyone to help you.
  9. If it's a bug and not working as it does on official servers, this should be posted as an Issue on Github with all relevant information.
  10. @Valkyries instead of creating a new file and modifying core src files, you could put everything into the import and custom files instead, with the exception of the code that is in clif.cpp. There is no reason at all to create new files, or not use the files provided for custom content. (e.g. "../custom/battle_config_struct.inc" )
  11. You'd be better off googling that.
  12. If you use the search feature on the forums, you'll find a very detailed guide on how to setup rAthena on a Pi4.
  13. I've gone back to basics and made a complete mess.
  14. You would need to open the map with browedit, select the castle model and delete it, then use the black tile and put it wherever the building was. There are plenty of guides on the forums and around the web on how to use browedit.
  15. Are you allowing players to create chars outside of the client? Or are you using a client that doesn't support char-specific genders?
  16. Alright then, if you want to do something complicated, you will need to create a separate column in the char table and update that column with the player's name before changing it.
  17. You could instead just use @fakename to apply the change so it doesn't change anything in the database. OnPCLoginEvent: atcommand "@fakename [Dark Army] "+ strcharinfo(0); end; The fakename atcommand is visual only and lasts until the player logs out.
  18. For starters, please change the topic title - it's not as descriptive as it could be. Second, why is your script using a string variable for an integer? (charid) How are you setting these variables? Missing parenthesis:
  19. You can do this in an SQL statement. If it's in an NPC script: prontera,123,123,5 script sql_test 123,{ mes "Input player's char ID"; input .@charid; next; query_sql("SELECT `name`, `sex` FROM `char` WHERE `char_id` = '"+ .@charid +" LIMIT 1", .@name$, .@sex$); if(getarraysize(.@name$) == 0){ mes "Unknown Char ID"; } else { mes "Char ID: "+ .@charid; mes "Char Name: "+ .@name$[0]; mes "Char Sex: "+ .@sex$[0]; } close; } Untested, but should work.
  20. This is a client issue with your setup and not an issue with the provided files.
  21. I should firstly preface a few things: I do not offer, and will not offer hosting packages of any kind. I do not overhaul old code. I do not ask for payment upfront. Why? Well, the past has been a bumpy road, so to avoid any of that in the future, certain stipulations have to be made. Due to daily-life commitments, I don't accept large projects. What do I offer? I offer FluxCP Services; creating addons, themes, code-snippets and integrations. Basic Theming The themes I design are simple, they're mobile responsive (most of them) and they're easy to modify. My Themes available through rAthena: Rips from websites that I've turned into FluxCP Themes: Essentially, if you have a design that is html code, I can turn it into a FluxCP Theme for you. Pricing for themes start at: Fully custom design: $400 Basic design: $40 Integrate code to available html: $40 Ripping another site to create a theme: $40 Addons & Integrations If you're looking for an addon or some kind of integration, I'm happy to discuss this over Discord DM or Forum PM. Pricing starts at $10. Scripting Service If you're looking for a fully fledged system that does X, Y and Z and integrates with This and That, I'm not the developer you're looking for. With that said, I'm still happy to discuss any scripting requirements via Discord DM or Forum PM. Server Management If you're looking for a developer who is able to run maintenance on your Linux/Windows server, then maybe I can help you put a process in place to help automate it. If you're looking for a developer to help manage your server's infrastructure, then I can help. Note: My methods of communication are via rAthena Forum PM or Discord DM only. Payment is not required until I've showed you the finished result. Tweaks afterwards can be made without charge, however, if the change requests are coming think and heavy, then I won't be doing it for free. Don't be offended if I decline your request. It's usually because I know I won't have the time necessary to complete the work. (I have failed at this before..) Payment is made through the rAthena forums - I do not accept personal direct payments (this is to rebalance the lack of forum crowdfunding). Any questions, feel free to shoot me a message via rAthena or via Discord.
  22. Can you expand on your request please - what items are required for what buffs?
  23. This is not a forum related issue so I'm moving your topic to somewhere more appropriate. Please take greater care in the future.
