  1. So I didn't find the perfect way to do it, I'm sure, but I found A way to do it. I went into the "battle_damage" function in battle.cpp, and I added: if (attack_type&BF_NORMAL) status_fix_spdamage(src, src, status_get_max_sp(src)/100, 0); Meaning for both players and mobs (and likely others), it zaps 1% sp per normal attack. Haven't tested it with other mercs, pets, homs, or etc, but it seems to be working so far. It still allows people to keep attacking with 0 sp, but I fixed that by lowering the damage to 5% of what it normally would be, making into an "I'm exhausted, and all I can do is weakly swing my arms about" struggle feature. It works quite nicely.
  2. How do I get normal attacks to use SP? I want to do this for every enemy and player type I can. Adding "status_zap" in various places hasn't worked for me yet, but perhaps I'm doing it in the wrong places.
  3. I'm looking to add regen for mobs. I think I've changed everything I need to except for one piece: * Gets the regeneration info of the given bl * @param bl: Object whose regen info to get [PC|HOM|MER|ELEM] //mob added AP * @return regen data or NULL if any other bl->type than noted above */ struct regen_data *status_get_regen_data(struct block_list *bl) { nullpo_retr(NULL, bl); switch (bl->type) { case BL_PC: return &((TBL_PC*)bl)->regen; case BL_HOM: return &((TBL_HOM*)bl)->regen; case BL_MER: return &((TBL_MER*)bl)->regen; case BL_ELEM: return &((TBL_ELEM*)bl)->regen; case BL_MOB: return &((TBL_MOB*)bl)->regen; default: return NULL; } } The compiler is saying that regen is not a member/part of TBL_MOB. How do I add regen to TBL_MOB? Anyone know? I'm not familiar with C++, so my weak attempts have failed. (The above code is found in status.cpp.)
  4. I've loved digging into video game design by working on RO stuff. Right now, I'm working on balanced enemies. I'm looking for a formula that will allow me to increase an enemy's power compared to player level. I originally thought it would be a simple "boost all stats by 50% and it's a 50% power boost over the player," but that's not true mathematically. If I boost HP by 50% and I boost attack by 50%, the enemy now has 125% boost over the player ( 1.5 x 1.5 = 2.25 (minus 1 from 100% base power)). Anyone know a formula that would allow me to take a number of stats and apply the same boost to each of them so that if I wanted a 10% overall power boost against the player it would work (or a 50% boost or a 100% boost)? I'm doing this likely for monsters as they level, but I also plan to make different ranks of monsters- minion, lieutenant, boss type of stuff- so there is more variety on each map. I imagine fractions would be the easiest to use, because I've found using fractions has helped immensely in powering balancing so far for me.
  5. I just found out RO made a poring that looks like a head of garlic. It's called Garling, and you can see it on this page (Pet System - NovaRO: Wiki (novaragnarok.com)). I didn't think they would stoop that low, but I guess they have. Perhaps I should make that the base poring for Lasagna. >.>
  6. While surfing the web, I found this website that mentions some stuff that got dropped from RO during its development or later as it was running. I found it interesting. It also has a single picture of Zombie Dragon. Was not expecting Zombie Dragon to be a 3D boss. Link: Ragnarok Online - The Cutting Room Floor (tcrf.net)
  7. While it isn't perfect, I finally figured how to game the aspd issue I was having. For the life of me, I couldn't find where that "50" was in the (50 / (200-aspd)) in the coding. BUT, the biggest thing that was important to me was wanting agility to have a clearer impact. I adjusted "temp_aspd", and along with some other small modifications- like setting one-handed weapons to leave a user with a base of 100 aspd when used- I was able to make it so that every 100 agility increased dps by 100% of my starting point. Meaning if I do 100 dps to start, it will allow me to do 200 dps with 100 agility, and then 300 dps with 200 agi, and so on. I'm super pumped about this, because now it will balance strength when I'm finished, and I have some clearer calculations I can work with. I hated all the "aspd corrections" and "we'll throw in some extra fractions for the fun of it." Just give me straight numbers! I also figured how to adjust my two-handed weapons to hit half as often (time-wise- 1 hit every 4 seconds vs 1 hit every 2 seconds), while still having my aspd mod make it so the dps speed boost from agi stayed the same. Since my two-handed weapons hit twice as hard, it finally adds a truly new playstyle to the game. Instead of the wishy-washy "this dagger does more damage than that mace" of standard RO play, I can finally have options- heavy damage user, normal damage user, tankier low damage user, etc. *Breathes in deeply* Ahhhh. I look forward to working out the rest of the kinks so playing different characters feels a lot more fresh and alive again. I can't wait to finally turn my crossbows into one-handed bows, and run around as a tanky trapper archer with low damage.
  8. Have you tried giving your monsters skills that change their weapon element? I know the taekwon class has a move that can do that, and there is an itemskill move that I believe has all the elements (The itemskill is called "ITEM_ENCHANTARMS", and if you can figure out what number that skill is, you could possibly add to a mob's skill list with a high % chance to use it). Outside of that, I did a dirty source mod that made it so that my monsters attack with neutral element 50% of the time and their defensive element 50% of the time. My code means that a dark monster would be using dark basic attacks 50% of the time.
  9. In order to use that response, I think I would have to put the first person's suggestion together with yours, looking for the view number of the item, and if the item view was taking up more than one equip spot, then look to see if there was a card, and if there was a card, then multiply it by how many slots the equip is taking up. I imagine there might be an easier way to code it, but perhaps not.
  10. While I can see how getiteminfo perhaps could be used to pull up what view an item was in, it's not quite what I'm looking for, because I don't know how I would include it in code to do what I want.
  11. Hi Gang. I'm looking for a source mod that would check how many equip spots a weapon or armor takes up and then would use that number to multiply how many cards an equipment has. Example: A sword has a card in it that gives a 5% atk boost. A two-handed sword has that same card in it, but the game reads it as two cards, giving the player a 10% atk boost. I'm doing this to balance two-handed weapons and multi-equip-spot armor in my game. If this seems difficult to code, but multiplying the bonus of the cards would be easier, I'm open to that for now, but I want to have my game think there are two cards present in two-handed weapons for the purpose of card combo bonuses. Example 2: An upper headgear has a card in it that boosts Def by 30. A upper/mid/lower headgear has that same card in it, but the game reads it as if it were 3 cards, so the Def boost is 90. Also, obviously this wouldn't only apply to cards themselves, but also any bonus that goes into a card slot, like enchants. Thanks for any leads! If you can do this through scripting but aren't confident in your ability to do this through source mod, I'd be happy to try that out, as at least it would give me a working model for the time being. (Mods: Woops. Should have posted this in Source Request instead of Source Support. My bad. Feel free to move it, since I can't delete it on my own.)
  12. I've been working on messing with that area, but I still don't see where the 50/(200-amotion) is listed. I see some places where it amotion gets multiplied by 50 and then divided by 100, but not 50/yadayada. Which is weird, because I changed the max cap for aspd to 1000, and it still divides everything by 50, meaning if I have 950 aspd, it becomes 50/ (1000-950), which becomes 1 attack per second. Not quite what I'm going for. (And until I get an answer, or even if I don't, I'm starting the long tedious journey of putting all of the formulas for aspd into an excel, so that I can see exactly what they do and how they affect aspd, so that I will learn where that 50 is eventually.)
  13. The current aspd formula works on a sharp curve. I'm working on making mine an even incline. Can someone tell me where the: "The amount of hits your character makes is calculated as such: 50 / (200-FinalASPD) hits per second" (as noted here: Attack Speed - NovaRO: Wiki (novaragnarok.com)) is located in status.cpp? That 50/yada is what is holding me back. Thanks if anyone has the info handy.
  14. Edit: Misread your post. Could you do it? Yes, but you would need to replace skills that already exist in order for the client to accept them, I assume. This is because I imagine that enemies don't have icons for powers, which would make it difficult to have powers to click on. It would probably require a lot of work. It would take a lot less work to have the weapons or armor have a CHANCE to have the power happen, either when attacking or when attacked. Creating a whole new move (new icons, descriptions, etc) is going to take time, even if it isn't an enemy power. Edit2: Most enemy skills, outside of like the ones that summon specific henchmen, are safe to use as item-cast skills. You could make a class that uses specific items instead of powers, and you could just make those items so that they don't disappear when used (though I can't remember how to make them not disappear, as I haven't done that task yet). Edit3: You just gave me an idea for an armor-based class- one that is plain jane until they put on the right armor, and then their attacks unlock hidden attacks.
  15. Howdy all. When I go to the apparently official site to try to download BrowEdit r620, my computer is showing the site has a virus (didn't try to download anything- looks like the site is hacked / fake "our antivirus program that you don't have found viruses on your computer" messages pop up). Does anyone have a safe and stable link to r620? (The excalibur site is where I tried to go.) Thanks for an update!
