Title: [XP] RPG Maker XP Online System (RMX-OS)
Post by: Blizzard on June 20, 2009, 11:52:23 am
RPG Maker XP Online System
Authors: Blizzard
Version: 2.06
Type: Multiplayer Online System
Key Term: Misc System



Introduction

This system features a set of scripts that are used in RPG Maker XP (client scripts) and another set that require Ruby itself (server scripts). Using this system allows to create multiplayer online games with RPG Maker XP.
Note that this is merely a very powerful tool. It is up to you to make your game awesome using this tool.

Features

The features are listed in the Manual chapter 1.1. for convenience.


Screenshots

N/A



Demo

RMX-OS (http://downloads.chaos-project.com/scripts/RMX-OS.zip)


Script

Included in the demo.



Instructions

The instructions can be found in the User Manual.



Compatibility

It is recommended not to use RMX-OS with SDK. Generally RMX-OS is over 95% compatible with SDK 1.x and over 90% compatible with SDK 2.x, but due to unexpected behavior you are running risk of bugs and save data corruption. Carefully decide if you want to use SDK in your project.
Incompatible with the RGSS100J.dll. RMX-OS was coded to be compatible and extensible so most scripts should work normally with RMX-OS. Scripts that require a server extension (i.e. an ABS) might need additional extensions for any script specific (i.e. battle related) enhancements (i.e. special skill processings from Tons of Add-ons). Using a generic Anti-Lag system with RMX-OS might conceptually not be a good idea, because of online interaction between characters. Make sure your Anti-Lag system can work with RMX-OS properly without causing problems.

:rofl: You just had to say that nicely.

Wow, this is going to be the replacer for Netbattle, yeah?

I am very proud of you for finishing it and I'm glad that a new script created by you would be something this massive.

Yes. But it's not done yet. For v1.0 I want to add chat (probably also a buddy list) and maybe some other minor things (probably guilds), I'll see.

No, because he can't use it with the new client. I am going to implement and edit it for him when I'm done with RMX-OS.

Blizz, I may be wrong, but aren't Regular Expressions, like, brutally slow? Like, hash-lookup-level-times-ten slow? 0_o It might not be such a problem with simple ones, and it might not matter since the engine might be waiting on the server anyway, but that's not the sort of thing I'd think would be very reliable in such a time-sensitive environment >_<

well how else is the server going to interpret messages from the client and the client from the server?

You don't have to use regular expressions to compare strings >_<

Why is it that it takes me 8000+ lines of code to do a working Hearts game in Java, whereas you can pull this kind of magic in 3000?

Sounds like the sex. And the sex always sounds good.

Depends on how the parser was implemented. But I agree, it might be a good idea to test that on speed. It's true, I don't need regular expressions to compare strings.

'abc' == 'abc'


But regular expressions aren't meant to compare strings. They are meant to find string patterns. As I said, I can change my system in such a way so I don't use string expressions. But the question is whether

if message =~ /SAV(.+)\t(.+)/
 type = $1
 value = $2
 # stuff
end


is REALLY slower than

string = message[0, 3]
if string == 'SAV'
 data = message[3, message.size - 3]
 type, value = data.split("\t")
 # stuff
end


because regular expressions don't only find string patterns, no, they also find matched substrings after matching a string to a pattern.

As I said, it depends on how the parser was implemented and what kind of regular expression you use. I've had a class that was almost only based on grammars, finite state machines and regular expressions (and I had an A, yay). What I'm trying to say is that I know what I'm talking about.

Why does Netplay+ 1.7 have like 3 times more code (I haven't counted, honestly) and the chat system is the only thing that RMX-OS doesn't have (yet)? I honestly don't know. Maybe the way of coding or experience. It's said that a good programmer is up to 20 times faster than a bad programmer (and of course a good programmer produces better code). Maybe it is also related to the number of coded lines. I don't know. I didn't do any research on productivity of programmers.

Did you install MySQL properly? Did you set the username and password for MySQL in cfg.rb properly? Is MySQL even running? Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services and find MySQL. The service should be anything else but disabled and started.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Hellfire Dragon on June 21, 2009, 09:12:42 am
I think I installed it right and of course it's running, I'm not stupid :P And yeah the username and password are set up properly too...
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 21, 2009, 09:20:10 am
Just checking. I've made the simplest mistakes myself.

Try using '127.0.0.1' instead of 'localhost'. Maybe your PC doesn't respond well to URLs.

If you can't get it running this way, try downloading and using XAMPP instead. Deinstall MySQL first.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 21, 2009, 10:34:53 am

not 666 again :(

How would we use XAMPP than instead? GOD I dont get the instructions in the manual at all!!?!??!!GRRAA
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Hellfire Dragon on June 21, 2009, 11:56:05 am
Good news! Server says online now :D
Bad news, it says Server did not respond when you try to actually get onto it... :(

EDIT: Okay, it stays online for a while then goes offline, and it doesn't come back on unless I restart the server, then it goes offline again etc, etc.
Using XAMPP

Post by: Blizzard on June 21, 2009, 12:55:58 pm
Did the server crash anyhow (and auto-restarted)?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Hellfire Dragon on June 21, 2009, 01:43:26 pm
Server never crashed, no. It's staying online now, I managed to connect and create an account. All was going well until I talked to the green haired girl and an error came up about the auto save fuction, sorry don't know the exact error :-/ Haven't been able to get back into the game since. Now, server still says it's online, I select the server to connect to an error comes up saying server did not respond, same if you try it a second time, then I get this on the third or forth try,
Spoiler: ShowHide

And same thing again after I restart the game
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 21, 2009, 01:57:46 pm
Ah, I see. I removed the AutoSaver module for this release. But it's a bug that you can't reconnect. I will look into this.

*explodes* for the past week i've been trying to get a demo of a system like this from another forum to work to see how it's like and you made one! i waisted all this time trying to get the other one to work (worked out it's not even in english) *downloads*, well it was made by you Blizz then i have no doubts that it'll work (apart from the error or bug here and there but that's expected), apart from the server, i keep getting this

(http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j14/Memor-X/error.png)

i'm using Wampserver 2.0 to test it, it's got the correct MySQL version and i download the right Ruby Version, i've almost amde the correct chnages to the config, any ideas what's going on
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 22, 2009, 10:15:36 am
You already have something running on the port that I specified as default or you have run it more than once for some reason because it's reinitializing a constant.

i open the cfg file and it closes automatically

Ok, I have no idea what you just said. I got lost after the part that you opened cfg.rb in a text editor.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: nathmatt on June 23, 2009, 03:47:48 pm
if i change the port in module RMXOS::Options to the port mysql already has it will say online but says the sever will not respond

if i change the cfg file & try to open the rmx-os file in the some folder it wont connect
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 23, 2009, 03:50:55 pm
If you change the port in the cfg file, you need to change it in the game's client as well.

Are you sure that you did it properly? You must not type something like 127.0.0.1, it HAS TO be '127.0.0.1'.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: nathmatt on June 23, 2009, 03:55:21 pm
the help file says my
User: root
  Password:
  (means no password!)
so i did this

NAME = 'RMX-OS Server'
HOST = '127.0.0.1'
PORT = 3306
VERSION = 0.8

LOG_MESSAGES = false
LOG_ERRORS = false
AUTO_RESTART = true
RESTART_TIME = 5

SQL_HOSTNAME = 'localhost' # SQL Host
SQL_USERNAME = "root"
SQL_PASSWORD =
SQL_DATABASE = 'rmxosdb' # SQL Database

EXTENSIONS = [
   'Blizz-ABS'
]
i get the port when i open the mysqlstart.bat
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 23, 2009, 03:57:24 pm
Port 3306 is reserved for SQL, why are you using is for the game? o_o;
If you have no SQL password, it should be

SQL_PASSWORD = ""


Oh, and remove the extension. There is no Blizz-ABS extension yet. ._.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: nathmatt on June 23, 2009, 03:58:18 pm
not sure how to change the port lol
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Just change it back to the default value. I think I used 54269.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

It is great that this is out.

Some one asked if I knew about this.
Blizzard gave me .8 a week ago. At the time all he really needed to do was documentate... it took him forever, or maybe he was busy with something else so read it!

So yes I knew about it, but I didnt know about the release until now.
It will be great replacement for netplay

Yeah, I was busy with some other stuff. xD But on saturday I sat down and just did it. Took me over 4 hours to finish the commenting of the code and make a manual. >.<

What RMX-OS now needs to proper stress testing. KOA and PNO will be the pilot games using RMX-OS. ^_^

Please some more details. From where are you trying to connect? From a management software, from RMX-OS, etc.? Have you checked your password? Are you sure that it's right? If localhost doesn't work, try using 127.0.0.1.

Query Browser
Adminstration
or Migration Toolkit
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

IDK. I use phpmyadmin for it. Try query browser. All you need to do is the execute the query in the .sql file.

He did say in post number 1. It has options where you can add extensions, one of these extensions will sooner or later be Blizz ABS but sometime after 1.0 comes out.

If I set up an evented class and character graphic selection screen, would it save everything for the player? Or is there some script snippets I need to include etc,?

Oh and I haven't had any server problems with the update like I did with the first version ^^
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 24, 2009, 03:20:47 pm
Yes, actor data is being saved (that's how the default configuration is set up) except for temporary stuff like battle actions. You don't need anything else.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 24, 2009, 03:33:50 pm
Would it be possible for a later version to have online battles with people? Using the dbs or something? Have team vs team or something? That would be pretty cool.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Hellfire Dragon on June 24, 2009, 03:42:35 pm
dbs... meh. I'd prefere online battles with peopel with blizz abs. Speaking of which, when RMX-OS is Blizz ABS compatable, will we be able to define certain maps as PvP?
Also, say if I was making a game where 2 armies were against each, would you be able to have them not be able to damage each other but only the other side? And have an option for the player to turn that off... betrayal... awesomeness :D
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 24, 2009, 03:48:11 pm
My idea was that you need to invite somebody into PvP and you can do it on any map or you can PvP anywhere.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 24, 2009, 04:04:00 pm
that'd be okay for abs but like maybe not the dbs but a side view one maybe I dunno I just figured being able to choose between an abs or a turned base battle system would be cool.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Sally on June 24, 2009, 04:11:43 pm
like wow's duels...

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Me and Drake joined a game together and when we get on the same map I get this error

Quote
Script '(RMXP) Spriteset_Map' line 29: NoMethodError occured.

Also as a suggestion, maybe a character creation scene where the player can pick a graphic character name and a class.
Oh and I thought the names displayed over the players heads :O.o:

Ok, if one person gives me one more "suggestion", I'll stop working on this. Seriously, guys, what do you think I am? An idiot? "Names over players' heads", "Blizz-ABS support", "guilds", "admin controls", "mouse controls", etc. My to-do list includes even non-trivial stuff beyond those here so stop bombarding me with requests. I shouldn't have released this in the first place. I give you a finger and you pull out my entire arm. I am making a system for online gaming here, not a game. Seriously.

xD Blizz is a little mad huh? Yeah I evented it. I have the player starting on that screen but I wanted to have it check if the player had already made character. I tried using a switch and conditional branch but the data would have tobe saved.
I just remember you removed the auto-save for this version :uhm:
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 24, 2009, 06:27:13 pm
Yes, the auto-save isn't really finished yet (in fact, I haven't even started this auto-save yet).

If you REALLY want a script for things like that, don't you think somebody had that idea before you and already made one? :P

I've just put up v0.82. I've fixed an issue with saving and I added name sprites and chat. I've also started some other things that are partially done in the script, but not really "enabled" yet.

a lot of those things are really simple for other people to do or have already been done. guilds and admin controls might legitimate additions that should be made at one time or another perhaps by Blizz or perhaps by some one else but things like mouse controls already exists. it would not be all that had to make them work with the system if you have a scripter who knows what they are doing. so i guess patience would be best. this isn't even V1 yet.

Post by: Ryex on June 25, 2009, 01:43:55 am
whats with the double post? and it looks OK if you set it up right personally I would make the class selection box go from bottom to top with a 32pxile offset from all sides, the male female box stretch from the side of the class box to the other side but offset just like the class box, then center the sprite box in the gap making sure to allow the box to expand for the bit map of the sprite no matter what size it is. oh and set up the configuration to have a customizable set of sprites for male and female, maybe a list of file names for each? should i even be going this in depth here?

edit oh and it looks like the spirit isn't centered in the window
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 25, 2009, 02:11:33 am
I did not realize the double post -_-

Oh and the config is like this
module GameGuy
ClassList = ["Fighter", "Mage", "Lancer", "Warrior"]
end
then i have a method in the module
def cgraphic(id) # id is the choice of classes so you'd use 1 for your first class 2 for your second, etc...
case id
when 1 then return ["male_graphic", "female_graphic", class_id]
the class id is the id in teh database this choice represents.
male graphic is the actual male graphic for that class
female graphic is the actual female graphic for that class

And I'm going to make the window larger and what you're saying is haev the class list on one side 32 pixels down and 32 pixesl to the right
then the gender list same thing but on the other side?

I said "suggestion", not suggestion.

Nah, I'm just messing with you anyway. :P v0.83 is out. My intention was that you can toggle the chat mode like in PNO which I did in v0.83. In other words the chat in v0.82 wasn't finished yet. Pressing F5 will toggle the chat display while F6 will toggle chat mode. If the window is not visible, F6 will also toggle the chat window. When chat mode is on, player controls are disabled.

Since you did a complete update, did you forget to set up the cfg.ini in the server folder? That's what happened to me after I updated >.<

No I changed it to my hamachi IP and the thing said it was online. I ran the server and said it was connected successfully to my hamachi. It connected to the database just fine it said.

@blizz: No error messages just a message saying
"Server did not respond"

Post by: Blizzard on June 26, 2009, 12:55:05 pm
That's weird, I'm not having that problem. Are you sure that you upgraded everything properly? Script and server? The database wasn't updated. And are you sure that you have configured it all properly?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 26, 2009, 12:57:46 pm
Yea I'm definetly sure. I deleted the database. I deleted all the other versions of rmx-os I had. Redownloaded this one. Ran the sql script again. COnfigured cgf.ini and then configured the RMX Options and made sure it matched my hamachi ip. The only problem is is I cant register so I cant log in which stinks.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 26, 2009, 01:08:57 pm
So you have 4 folders and 4 files in your server folder. You have changed the HOST in cfg.ini and you have changed it in the Options script. Both match and are either 5.x.x.x or 127.0.0.1. You have set up a MySQL password and you have set SQL_PASSWORD, SQL_USERNAME, SQL_HOSTNAME and SQL_DATABASE properly in cfg.ini. You can run it all on 127.0.0.1 properly without any network connections active.
That's how it should be.
And now, which of these are not true?

BTW, Server IS version 0.82. The server hasn't been changed.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on June 26, 2009, 01:16:40 pm
The host in the cfg.ini is my hamachi IP which is running and its on. And I have changed it in the options script. Both match or else it would say my server is offline. I have set up a MySQL password and placed it in the cfg.ini. I've set up the sql_username, and host, and database properly or else when I ran the server it wouldnt be able to connect to my database.

I've double even triple checked everything. I even dug up an older version out of the recycle bin and all the data and options were the same.

What about cfg.ini of the server? Did you set that one up right?


Here is my config.ini:

Spoiler: ShowHide

NAME = 'Localhost'
HOST = '127.0.0.1'
PORT = 54269
RMXOS_VERSION = 0.84

LOG_MESSAGES = false
LOG_ERRORS = false
AUTO_RESTART = true

And the SQL root password is surely penis?

What exactly is the problem? Do you get an error message or does it simply not react? Or does it say the server is offline?

Yes, the password is penis.  :naughty:

The server runs normaly, but the client say it is offline, but he is not!
I don't get any error, I just can't connect because the server appears offline in the game.

Are you sure that the password is right? If you installed XAMPP there were 2 users created named root, one with localhost and the other 127.0.0.1 and if you didn't install XAMPP are you sure it's the right user?

If it says that the server is offline, there can only be 4 possible reasons:

1. IP doesn't match on server and in game client. (Judging from your cfg.ini and the options, they do match.)
2. Port doesn't match on server and in game client. (Judging from your cfg.ini and the options, they do match.)
3. You are running the server on localhost (127.0.0.1) and you are trying to connect to localhost (127.0.0.1) on a different computer. If you run the server on localhost, no other computer will be able to access the server. You HAVE TO enter the actual IP on the network.
4. Problem with port forwarding. Google for "port forwarding".

Well, the server connects, the mySQL manager can access the database, so I think teh password is correct...  :uhm:
There is two different passwords for '127.0.0.1' and 'localhost', or they are the same for default??  :???:

As I said, if you can run the server, but you don't see it online in the game, then something with the configuration is wrong.
If both are on the same computer, then using 127.0.0.1 should work properly. :/

RMX-OS 0.85 is out. It runs on Ruby 1.9.1 now. I have added in the installation guide how to install Ruby 1.9.1 "properly".



EDIT: I have uploaded 0.85 again because I added the link for Ruby so you don't have to google for it because people can get confused whether to download the source of the binary. You can download the "right" Ruby 1.9.1 from here (http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/ruby-1.9.1-p129-i386-mingw32.7z).

EDIT: v0.86 is up.

Blizz, I may be wrong, but aren't Regular Expressions, like, brutally slow? Like, hash-lookup-level-times-ten slow? 0_o It might not be such a problem with simple ones, and it might not matter since the engine might be waiting on the server anyway, but that's not the sort of thing I'd think would be very reliable in such a time-sensitive environment >_<


Depends on how the parser was implemented. But I agree, it might be a good idea to test that on speed. It's true, I don't need regular expressions to compare strings.

'abc' == 'abc'


But regular expressions aren't meant to compare strings. They are meant to find string patterns. As I said, I can change my system in such a way so I don't use string expressions. But the question is whether

if message =~ /SAV(.+)\t(.+)/
 type = $1
 value = $2
 # stuff
end


is REALLY slower than

string = message[0, 3]
if string == 'SAV'
 data = message[3, message.size - 3]
 type, value = data.split("\t")
 # stuff
end


because regular expressions don't only find string patterns, no, they also find matched substrings after matching a string to a pattern.

As I said, it depends on how the parser was implemented and what kind of regular expression you use. I've had a class that was almost only based on grammars, finite state machines and regular expressions (and I had an A, yay). What I'm trying to say is that I know what I'm talking about.


Alright, I have tested it. I used 4 different test cases.

Case 1: ShowHide
This test case is the most basic. It matches the string for the first 3 characters and then separates the rest as data from the original string. It is used on a string that matches.
This script was used in the test case:

a = 'CHTBlizzard: Hi, guys. What\'s up?'
count = 1000000

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a =~ /CHT(.+)/
   data = $1
 end
}
p Time.now - time

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a[0, 3] == 'CHT'
   data = a[3, a.size - 3]
 end
}
p Time.now - time


The test times for regex method:
1.234
1.219
1.235

The test times for direct string manipulation:
2.532
2.500
2.484


Case 2: ShowHide
This test case is identical to the first one except for the string that is checked. This time the string does not match the pattern.
This script was used in the test case:

a = 'CHTBlizzard: Hi, guys. What\'s up?'
count = 1000000

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a =~ /MOV(.+)/
   data = $1
 end
}
p Time.now - time

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a[0, 3] == 'MOV'
   data = a[3, a.size - 3]
 end
}
p Time.now - time


The test times for regex method:
0.500
0.515
0.500

The test times for direct string manipulation:
1.688
1.750
1.703


Case 3: ShowHide
This test case is the most complex and requires regex perform multiple separation of data.
This script was used in the test case:

a = 'LINBlizzard\ttestpass'
count = 1000000

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a =~ /LIN(.+)\t(.+)/
   user, pass = $1, $2
 end
}
p Time.now - time

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a[0, 3] == 'LIN'
   user, pass = a.split("\t")
 end
}
p Time.now - time


The test times for regex method:
0.781
0.797
0.765

The test times for direct string manipulation:
4.672
4.734
4.688


Case 4: ShowHide
Again the test case is the same as the one before but the string is not matched.
This script was used in the test case:

a = 'LINBlizzard\ttestpass'
count = 1000000

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a =~ /REG(.+)\t(.+)/
   user, pass = $1, $2
 end
}
p Time.now - time

time = Time.now
count.times {
 if a[0, 3] == 'REG'
   user, pass = a.split("\t")
 end
}
p Time.now - time


The test times for regex method:
0.547
0.610
0.546

The test times for direct string manipulation:
1.750
1.750
1.781


In all 4 test cases I have not included the calculation of standard deviation and distribution as the purpose is comparison rather than precision of the measurement.

Interpretation of results:

Regex matches strings (several times) faster. In case the string isn't matched, the direct string manipulation method still needs to create a new substring for the first match and then extract the rest of the string while regex does that all at once. This is due to regex matching is implemented with a parser and a finite state machine mechanism that doesn't need to check the entire string or alter the string in order to determine whether it does or does not match a pattern.

Conclusion:

Regex is much better for string pattern detection. Use it when you can, but don't use it when you don't actually need it!

I see. I was looking at the problem from a more C-oriented perspective, in which case something like Regexp would be a bit of overkill. The architecture you're using for the server protocol also plays a big part.

But you win. *bows, and powers up for teh epic*

The only one that wins are the users of RMX-OS because these results show that they definitely have a good and optimized server. :)

Also, I don't think the architecture (except for the communication protocol) is that relevant. These results don't mean that more complicated regular expressions wouldn't be slower. i.e. It could be that Netplay+ message protocol (in form of "<tag_name>data</tag_name>") wouldn't work so fast with regular expressions.

I meant that a basic C server would most likely just stuff everything into a 3-4 bytes per message (one identifier, 2-3 arguments, each as a char, maybe a short/int) and evaluate it in a simple loop, which definitely has the potential to be much, much faster. Of course, in Ruby stuff like that becomes slightly more complicated and a waste of effort.

What you are talking makes no sense. You are saying that in C you can make a message like "CHTBlizzard: Hello. My name is Blizzard and I am a programmer." be 3-4 bytes long which is complete bullshit.
First thing, the message is far too long to be compressed down to 3 bytes.
Secondly, my message identifiers are 3 characters long which translates into 3 bytes of application data that are sent over the network (sent using Win32API which was written in C/Assembly, helloooooooooo). Altogether it means that whatever I do in Ruby, it will be turned into actual C data before sent over the network. In fact, this will happen in any language because practically all socket controlling programs were written in low level languages because nobody would make one in a high level language. That's like coding an operating system in a high level language: You don't do that.
Thirdly, sending a message over the network using TCP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmission_Control_Protocol) isn't just sending 3 bytes. It's sending at least 160 + 3 bytes. That results in actually far better communication when you use longer messages or put several messages in one TCP package (but I didn't go that far with RMX-OS because that could create lag significant lag). That also means using a single byte and all of 256 possible states as identifier is just idiotic. Sending 2 additional bytes over the network is much less costly than manipulating raw byte streams so it's just a minimal message. You fail at computer communcation protocols. Horribly.

That's what I hate about C programmers. They are so narrow-sighted that they think C is the best and the fastest language for every single purpose that there is out in the world. They think that they can do just everything with "just a few bytes" while they completely ignore the practical usability. If they did just that, it would be actually ok, but they are much worse. They have no problem wasting irreasonable amount of CPU time just to save 10% of memory. We don't live in a time anymore where we have only 64kB of memory. I'm not saying to waste memory, but I have no problem increasing memory usage by 10% if I can speed up execution time by 400% because the program doesn't recalculate some things over and over again. I guess that is what makes the difference between a "programmer" and a "programm engineer".

Saying stuff like this just to make you look smart is really idiotic. Level down for that degree of arrogance. "just stuff everything into a 3-4 bytes per message" Woah, you should listen to yourself.

Post by: Blizzard on August 05, 2009, 02:26:16 pm
Admin = 10
2nd Admin = 9
Mod = 8
Normal Player = 0

The first person to register is automatically made admin. Every other admin that is created by using the /admin command is secondary admin. That is some sort of root admin feature to prevent admin hacking. For now there are only security measures on the client. I didn't implement them on the server yet because I wanted to release v0.9 already. That means that if a client would send one of the special messages to the server (i.e. inviting a new guild member), he could do it without being actually guild leader. Of course that would require using a special script. :P And of course I'm going to implement proper server-side authentication as well.

Yeah, that was the problem. When I saw 0.87, I thought that it was a problem related to that version. 0.8x and 0.9x are very different. I'll put up a fixed version of 0.9 right away.

It looks like your PC doesn't accept remote connections over TCP. Just google for "TCP connection premission denied" or something like that. The error is not related to RMX-OS itself.

When did you download 0.9? I put up a fixed version after the first time that bug was reported.

Are you 100% sure that you are using 0.9? Not only that I never encountered that problem since I "fixed" it, I even have a thread on the server running that terminates all clients that are disconnected but are still treated as if they are actually online. Not that it shouldn't be happening, it actually can't happen.

Wrong topic then. I fixed in RMX-OS a while ago as I said. Remexos is different and I updated the scripts there. I didn't fix it there before, that's why you got the error. I thought you were talking about RMX-OS because you posted here. :P

blizzard showd me how to add commands so i thought i would post wate blizzard told me to do

i was going to use the command to save

Quote from: Blizzard on September 14, 2009, 02:21:02 pm
alias check_normal_commands_teleport check_normal_commands
def check_normal_commands(message)
 if message =~ /\A\/save\Z/
   $network.save
   return true
 end
 return check_normal_commands_teleport(message)
end


Or:

alias check_normal_commands_teleport check_normal_commands
def check_normal_commands(message)
 if message == 'save'
   $network.save
   return true
 end
 return check_normal_commands_teleport(message)
end



then you add

save to the  PARAMETERS section around line 286
and add save to DESCRIPTIONS around line  336
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on September 15, 2009, 03:44:09 pm
You can add PARAMETERS and DESCRIPTIONS pretty much anywhere as long it's in RMXOS::Data. That way you won't get weird messages when you try use the command improperly.

EDIT: Pretty much this:

class RMXOS::Network
 
 alias check_normal_commands_command_save check_normal_commands
 def check_normal_commands(message)
   if message =~ /\A\/save\Z/
     $network.save
     return true
   end
   return check_normal_commands_command_save(message)
 end
 
end

module RMXOS::Docs
 
 PARAMETERS['save'] = 'none'
 DESCRIPTIONS['save'] = 'Saves the game.'
 
end

Hey,

let's say you've completed your v1 script.
I 'install' it but when I want to add new things, like balancing stuff or new maps,.... will that 'mess up' with your script?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on September 30, 2009, 12:07:13 pm
Nope. Editing the database or maps rarely messes up a script. The exclusion would maybe be scripts that are directly connected to that.

hey blizz didn't you say that you would finish the documentation with v1.0?  :(
oh well no rush there i'll read it when and if it gets finished
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on October 03, 2009, 07:16:34 am
I'll do it for 1.1. I wanted to release 1.0 earlier so I skipped the docs for now.

EDIT: v1.01 is out. I fixed the bug HD mentioned. It was weird, though. Logically that bug wasn't supposed to exist at all.

Post by: Ryex on October 04, 2009, 07:47:10 pm
I found a bug! I did I did! lol it's only a small one and it's more a a glitch.
the chat bubbles will only show the last part of a message. ie I decided to test them and put in a message that was the max 200 characters but the bubble only showed the last 68 characters of the message.

also if i may make a suggestion the remember log in option should only enable a loading of the user's preference from the .ini or similar file. that way if some one is one a public computer or a computer with more than one person on it they can disable the remember log in option from the servers scene

just a suggestion.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on October 05, 2009, 09:10:54 am
I was just too lazy to make "Remember me" optional for the player so far.
Also, who the heck will install an RMXP game on a public computer?! -_-

I'll look into the bug with the chat bubbles. It's probably because of the text splitting in case of long messages.

EDIT: Alright, I checked on the bug and it's not a bug. It actually works as intended, I just didn't consider some cases.
The script splits the text in lines so they fit in 96 pixels width while the maximum line number in the chat bubble is 5. For former constant was hardcoded, I changed that for the next version and I changed it to 192 instead of 96. You can always change RMXOS::Data::ChatBubbleEntries and (in the next release) RMXOS::Data::ChatBubbleMaxWidth. I'll also change RMXOS::Data::ChatBubbleEntries to 8 instead of 5 by default. I might change the maximum chat entry limit to 150 or 128 or 100. I'll see. In any case there are constants in the RMXOS::Data module which are actually for advanced users since they aren't part of the default configuration. Feel free to change them, but remember to be careful when you update the script not to overwrite the edited part and add new constants from the script in that case.

Lol, database management software isn't really a small program. But you could just add some basic functions. That could be useful and should suffice for most people.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on October 22, 2009, 10:02:00 am
basically the functions to to create the database run the setup script and run any update scripts
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on October 22, 2009, 10:04:09 am
Basically running SQL queries. Probably a database content display and possibility to edit stuff would be nice, too. But for that you need to be know SQL more or less. xD

Good luck with that.

hm I thought of a possible addon the could be made for this script... a TOS page that your are required to click yes on or you can't register. the TOS could be pulled from a text file and it could be turned on and off.... what do you think?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: jcsnider on October 24, 2009, 05:11:55 pm
I like the idea, but maybe instead of a text file in client, make it be in server and the server send it over so it can be updated anytime or, in the game's scripts so people cant edit it themselfs trying to be a smartass.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on October 24, 2009, 07:36:50 pm
This is pointless. You just put TOS for the client download. Problem solved.

Post by: Ryex on October 24, 2009, 08:19:18 pm
hmm true. I just kniw that most MMO's I seen they have a different TOS for registering an account than for installing the game. but then most MMO's I've seen the TOS for the account registering was probably meant to cover the forum and site use as well as in game stuff. it would make more sense if the page was used to display online conduct rules.

Okay guys I figured out how to run a server without using hamachi, I feel so proud of myself. Lol.

Yea I cant believe it was so simple but took me this long to figure out.

Anyways I have a client and server up so here's a test. Its running on my actual ip without hamachi.
http://gameguy.webhop.org/Files/client.exe

It does work I tested it with edwardthefma also here's my new site! Under construction of course xD
http://gameguy.webhop.org I'm going to change the name to something else but its all for server testing.

This is an absolutely awesome idea and I would love to implement it in my game. Being able to play with my family and friends on a game designed especially for us that we don't have to pay a monthly fee for... yeah that rocks.

So, I set out on the endeavor to set this up with a game I was creating with my fiance and I've gotten completely lost somewhere in the MySQL seas.

I've downloaded and installed:
*Ruby
*MySQL
*MySQL Management software
*RMX-OS GUI

To the best of my knowledge, I've installed and configured them all correctly (as well as the cfg.ini file).
However, the GUI wouldn't allow me to connect to the SQL server. I then realized I'd forgotten to create the database, as stated in the file you included. So, I did that with the management software.

Everything should now be fine and dandy, but its still not letting me connect in the GUI. I went ahead and tried to connect in the game and got the error:
"Script 'RMX-OS Script' line 2496: Errno::ECONNRESET occurred. An existing connection was forcebly closed by the remote host."

How can it refuse to connect in the GUI and then report a working connection that refuses to allow login? I'm confused.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on November 16, 2009, 05:36:33 pm
As I already mentioned in the installation guide, you should look up port forwarding and other terms.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Annyahs on November 19, 2009, 01:35:03 pm
I already have. I opened the ports used by RMX-OS and MySQl and then used port checker to confirm that they were indeed open. Still getting the error.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on November 19, 2009, 02:57:42 pm
You ran the server, right? Post your configuration of the server and the client. Maybe something's wrong.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on November 19, 2009, 08:31:36 pm
note that if the GUI can't connect to the database RMX-OS can't either. use the connect button to check the connection. most database management software works as a remote client. use the configuration you used for the software for RMX-OS and it should work
also be sure that the MySQL server is running simply right click on my computer and click manage then go to services ans make sure the MySQL services is started.

Post by: Jackolas on December 06, 2009, 10:08:58 am
k. tried a lot myself. got a lot to work myself. even in the saving stuff..
but ran into a problem :S
I'm not someone to ask for help with every problem because I want to fix everything myself, but I'm stuck
under Save_Data in the manual says :
QuoteIt requires some basic scripting knowledge to set up this configuration! If you are unsure, ask a scripter.


I have a quest system in my game that works great when it was single player (could save an load quest progress.)
Now I can't get it to work any more.

to get it to work in the single player game I added to Scene_Save
    Marshal.dump($game_temp.qupdate, file)
   Marshal.dump($game_temp.qupdate2, file)

in  Game_Temp I added under "class Game_Temp"
  attr_accessor :qupdate
 attr_accessor :qupdate2

and under "def initialize"
    @qupdate = []
   @qupdate2 = []
   for i in 0...200000
     @qupdate[i] = false
     @qupdate2[i] = false
   end

to start a quest i add a script in an event with:
$game_temp.qupdate[1][0] = true

(this will start quest 1 with 0 objective completed)

if more info is needed say so.
Reason for not uploading whole scrip: don't want you guys go to the trouble to read trough 500+ lines of code
if script is really needed i will post it
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 06, 2009, 12:02:28 pm
Add this:

SAVE_DATA[Game_Temp] = ['@qupdate', '@qupdate2']


And add '$game_temp' to SAVE_CONTAINERS.

Also, I recommend that you don't put that stuff in Game_Temp. Better put it in Game_System. Then you need to add '@qupdate' and '@qupdate2' to SAVE_DATA[Game_System] instead of what I just said.

Post by: Jackolas on December 06, 2009, 12:48:45 pm
thanks, i go right to it

edit:
change to system, works like a dream.
added it to SAVE_DATA[Game_System]

got error:

Quote
Script 'RMX-OS Data' line 2600: RuntimeError occurred
Error! Saving for class Array undefined!


think there need to be added a     CREATION_DATA[Game_System] = ????

Right. That's an issue I have fixed already, but it's not in a released version yet. It happens if you have arrays / hashes in arrays / hashes. Put this under RMX-OS for now and it should work:

it works fine with log-in (new account ofc) and log-off.
but when I log in again with the same account error pops up

ok so I'm building a world chat channel addon for PNO I just want to know is the prefix CHW or CAW in use? (and yes I'm aware that mods can use the /global command, this is fo of a use /world to turn world chat off and on, and while your in world chat all your messages are sent to everyone)

EDIT: wow Blizz you weren't thinking of a multichannel system when you designed the chat were you. I ended up giving up on making the world and local chat logs combine correctly and just made it a completely different log.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

EDIT:
Where go we access all the PM's a player recieves? A friend was bugging me saying he didn't like viewing pm's through chatbox so he asked me to make a script that showed him them.

So I plan on doing that but I need to know how to access PM's.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 07, 2009, 05:27:18 am
@Ryex: I did not implement world chat on purpose. Spammers, advertisers, idiots and everybody else falling into that kind of category shouldn't be allowed to talk to everybody whenever they feel like it. There will always be people like that and if they have the means to be completely annoying idiots by annoying everybody else on the server, they will use that opportunity. Imagine 100 people on a server and just 2 pairs of 2 people on two different maps who talk to each other, 2 more annoying idiots who are looking for a pokemon to trade and let the entire server know and 2 more noobs who don't know how to play and keep asking questions. The chatbox will be flooded just like that and a normal conversation with somebody will become impossible.

@G_G: Actually it's in the manual. *points to chapter 4.3.* The PMs are received with the PMA server message. RMXOS::Network#decode_pm_data turns the received string into a proper chat message displaying all the info about the PM.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 07, 2009, 11:35:47 am
@Blizz well Jc and most every one else wanted it and in that case my method of implementing it is better. you don't have to see the world chat if you don't want to.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Alright, but I have warned you. :P
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 07, 2009, 02:23:23 pm
yes, yes you did. and yours IS the reason most MMO's have the option to turn the global and trade chat channels off. and even the local channel. so that you can view only the sever messages and personal stuff like pm's or the channel you want to. eventually that is what I'm going to expand it to. a multichannel system where a user receives local messages and messages from channels that they subscribe to. ie the user enters /world into the chat box and the server receives a messages to send world messages to them. and then entering /world again tells it to stop. the same could be done with any extra channel.
It would make a nice extension in that form I think


EDIT:
also in the latest version of PNO I'm having the loading problems again. the type error can't convert nil to string error. I looked up the two lines that it gives, the lines are in the methods rmxos_deserialize and  rmxos_deserialize_enum. the line in both cases is
data = eval($network.load_data[key])
if it helps I was trying to proxy the game client so the network connection never went over 10kb/s and jumped up and down a lot. I have a feeling that this is why
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 07, 2009, 05:23:16 pm
Alright, then it's ok, channels are fine. I actually hoped that somebody would make plugins to split the different chat message categories. :=

I'm not sure, but the edited client is supposed to receive server message chunks and simply put them together if they aren't complete. Find RMXOS::Network#listen and dump all received messages (before the \000 are all deleted) into a file and send me that file.

Alright, so, I've spent close to around the last 4 hours tackling the installation of the server alone, mind you I've been having internet connection problems every other minute and everythings been pissing me off like no other. But anyway.

I've finally gotten MySQL to download and got all the way up to the execute window of setting up the instance and it gets to Start Server, the first time I did this it said it couldn't Start, so I closed out, uninstalled, reinstalled, and now it's frozen at that screen twice and I closed out of it after waiting 5 minutes.

Can someone PLEASE help me? Lead me to another alternative? One that isn't a source code and won't take me 4 hours to install. I've got Windows Vista and every new program I come by turns into an adventure regardless of how easy the set up should be. I'm sure getting the actual game to work on the server, if I ever get that working, will take a good 5 hours or so.

reinstall MySQL. (had the same problem)
I suggest following this guy guide because its a real pain to uninstall.
http://www.channels.com/episodes/show/6310023/Completely-remove-MySQL-server-for-Windows

just follow him how to uninstall.
and than install the MySQL again

also get the MySQL from here:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.1.html#win32
and download the Windows MSI Installer (x86)

took me 2 mins to get to work when I finely figured this out :P

Post by: Lost King on December 08, 2009, 03:01:49 am
Alright, I just tried it twice, following the steps in the video you linked both times to get rid of the previous install. And both times I got to the end of the Configuration and it says "Could not start the service MySQL."

I disabled my firewall the second time, is there some option I should be choosing or some simple task I'm over looking? Usually running as Admin solves everything but that's not an option on the installer even though you give it permission anyway. Could it perhaps be a problem with some other program I have running? I have Hamachi on now, does that affect anything?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Jackolas on December 08, 2009, 04:12:30 am
QuoteCould not start the service MySQL

that sounds like a classic problem of Vista thinking its smart by stopping programs.
simple way to fix this is log in as administrator.
deinstal and than reinstall

other way is:
deinstal MySQL.
now reinstal MySQL
when it asks to start setup a database press no (deselect it or whatever)
now go to the MySQL install path.
open the Bin map in the instal path and look for a exe called "MySQLInstanceConfig"
(for example C:\MySQL Server 5.1\bin\MySQLInstanceConfig.exe)
right click that file and execute as admin.
follow the database setup.

If that fails:
Remove windows vista
Install windows XP or windows 7
AND NEVER GO BACK TO VISTA AGAIN

@Lost King: The most important thing is that you need to run MySQL by any means. If you can't run it, you can't use RMX-OS. If you can't manage to get it working in Vista, consider using a remote database.

Note that you'll most likely need to have an ISP with decent upload speeds for that. Mine, at least, does not, so I can't host a server of any kind and have people outside my LAN access it in any decent amount of time.

the answer to you question is no rmx-os is not compatible with blizzabs

yes you server client has to be running constontly for rmx-os to be working
thare are alternatives tho you can use rmx-os with a deban linux shell
but good luck finding a free shell most are pay and thave rules thay say you cant run any kind of game server
just make shur it has the right requirements for rmx-os  ruby1.9.1 and a mysql

I bet you are checking the game over and over again with the same account.
try login in with a new 1. I bet the events work again.

remember that the server is saving stuff.. so if you add things and the saver saved something than it will not work.

hey Blizz I was wondering
did you ever consider having the client send its server messages to a relay client on the same computer that would then send the messages to the server?

like when you start the game it starts a outside program that the clients sends the messages to instead of the server and then that program will forward the messages to the server. and the server will send messages to the program and then they will be forwarded to the client. If I'm right all messages send between the client and the local program will be nearly instant and the program will be able to send messages to the server with out having the script is hanging problem.

Hi all,
i got a problem when running the server (on linux)
I have this error :

Any help please ?
Thanks.


You haven't "installed" Ruby 1.9.1 properly after you have installed Ruby 1.8.7. If you do what Ed said, you'll risk a high performance drop because Ruby versions before 1.9 didn't have real multithreading.

hey Blizz I was wondering
did you ever consider having the client send its server messages to a relay client on the same computer that would then send the messages to the server?

like when you start the game it starts a outside program that the clients sends the messages to instead of the server and then that program will forward the messages to the server. and the server will send messages to the program and then they will be forwarded to the client. If I'm right all messages send between the client and the local program will be nearly instant and the program will be able to send messages to the server with out having the script is hanging problem.


I thought about that already. Except if I did it in plain C/C++, people would have to install god-knows-what to make their game work.

Nirahiel, I suggest you go back to the manual and read true it again. because I think you missed something.
Let me quote something in the manual Blizzard wrote:
QuoteBut the server does require you to install Ruby. The recommended version is 1.9.1.

my question is why did you NOT install version 1.9.1?
If you don't follow the suggestions the creator of this awesome code had given, why should we help you fix simple problems?

go back to the manual and do the step for step setup.
if you followed it to the letter than we can help you with problems.

Try "ruby1.9." If that works, then I can come up with a workaround for you (probably something like "mv /usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby1.8", followed by "ln -s /usr/bin/ruby1.9 /usr/bin/ruby").

Well, that means that Ruby can be launched from ruby1.9. So "ruby1.9 --version" should give you 1.9. Try this, then:

mv /usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/ruby1.8
ln -s /usr/bin/ruby1.9 /usr/bin/ruby

It might not work, but it should make scripts run using 1.9 instead of 1.8 (you'll be able to use ruby1.8 to refer to the old version after that).

To undo it, use:

rm /usr/bin/ruby
mv /usr/bin/ruby1.8 /usr/bin/ruby


EDIT:
Also, those might require sudo. So either prepend each line with sudo, or just use "sudo su" and then use those commands.

Just try running RMX-OS again. What you've done should run most scripts with Ruby 1.9 now, like I said.

Also, I need to make a tutorial for properly setting up Ruby on Ubuntu. Apparently it's a lot harder than expected (Ruby 1.9 is still marked as unstable IIRC, so Ubuntu has it installed nonstandard. It's easy enough to fix, but until the Ubuntu devs complete the shift people will be stuck with 1.8)

well dam.
and here i thought that it would be easy to just use c++ or something. after all you wouldn't need any thing above .net 2 which is standard in all windows pc's 98 or above
EDIT:
and Waite 100 MB? that can be true
a simple ruby command line script like RMX-OS shouldn't create a exe larger than 8 MB

*goes off to test it*

ok well I ended up using OCRA (just search "OCRA ruby" on google) because it compresses the exe even smaller the used it on RMX-OS it cam out in working order extensions and all at a size of 700KB
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 28, 2009, 10:03:49 am
Yeah, but then you can't really use server extensions.

I said 100MB if you "compile" it under cygwin. I got that info from the guy who made ruby2exe or something like that. I've read his site.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 28, 2009, 12:23:58 pm
blizz you not making much scene. read the below
Spoiler: ShowHide

for one thing I discovered the rubyscript2exe is no longer supported and dosn't work with ruby 1.9
instead I'm now talking about OCRA no compiling necessary to use it
to install it you use
gem install ocra

in a command prompt and it installs the ruby gem
you can then navagate to the server folder and use
ocra RMX-OS.rb

to create a exe with one the ruby stuff it needs to run, this exe is just over 700 kb.
it also loades the extension files into the exe that RMX-OS loaded when ocra ran it to trace all the necessary files
how ever it dose not load the cfg.ini file into the exe and instead looks fore it in the exe's run directory the same for any file that did not get put into the exe itself. like the data folder and any extensions that get added to the cfg after the exe is complied it will look for in the extensions folder.
you can how ever add and extra files that ocra dose not trace and find necessary like so
ocra rmx-os.rb data/*

will compile rmx-os into an exe with the data folder inside the exe
you could then take this exeand any extra file that didn't get added to it (like the extension folder the utilities folder and the cfg.ini to another computer and run rmx-os without ruby or ocra installed

now forget about what i just said because what I'm getting to is that you could use orca to compile a static exe that simply collected messages for the client and forwarded them to the server and did the same for the server's messages to the client
no compiling 100mb files in there at all. the user gets a 700kb file that runs under it's own ruby weather or not the system has ruby.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 28, 2009, 12:26:32 pm
But there's still one problem. The user can't edit the server scripts anymore.

I'm not talking about using it on RMX-OS I just tested it on RMX-OS to see how it would work for the underlined bolded and quoted purpose
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 28, 2009, 12:53:50 pm
Oh, that. >.<
You should still test that one a few PCs with different OSes that don't have to see if it really is that simple.
Also, if I used a relay client, I'd just have the same code twice. I'd need to pass on the data from the relay client to RMXP which would just complicate things unnecessarily.

BTW, this is what I was talking about:
QuoteAnd when I say Windows, I mean both Windows (RubyInstaller, MinGW and MSWin32) and Cygwin. But the generated exe under Cygwin is very, very big, because its exe's are very big (static?) and it includes cygwin1.dll, so it can run on machines without Cygwin.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 28, 2009, 01:18:45 pm
oh that... but then again that is rubyscript2exe which as I said dosen't seem to work under ruby 1.9
OCRA dose, and OCRA compresses the exe with LZMA.
any way my point with the relay client was thet it would be able to communicate with the server with out haveing to call Graphics.update.
many people (on PNO at least) are having the game crash on them while it saves game data between maps because of a script hanging error.

If you have to, you can rewrite the sockets library you're using to call the Graphics.update method, but that would require linking against whatever Ruby library RGSS uses.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

php's string.crypt function is the same encryption as RMX-OS

Post by: G_G on January 15, 2010, 11:09:22 pm
Actually its not. I already tried the crypt method and it gave me this.
$1$O7/oPEhy$EQbImZw7sRwIwY4y9SOKr.

here's my code.
$pass = $_POST['entrypass'];
$password = crypt($pass);

And that code gave me the first code box.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on January 15, 2010, 11:32:59 pm
RMX-OS now uses ruby's string.crypt function and php's Crypt is the same. i think... *tests*

Code: Ruby

string = 'entrypass'
string.crypt('PN')

yeilds
Code: result
PNucLKbRpieMw

Code: PHP
<?php
$pass = 'entrypass';
$password = crypt($pass, 'PN');
echo $password
?>

yeilds
Code: result

PNucLKbRpieMw

wate are those the same? by god I think they are!

note the extra string used in the method call, this is the salt, the string off which the password is encrypted.

also note that RMX-OS also removes the first two letters of the string as they are the salt (the string used to encrypt the string in this case 'PN')

RMX-OS's method
Code: Ruby

    def encrypt_password(password)
     # encrypting password
     encrypted = password.crypt(RMXOS::Options::ENCRYPTION_SALT)
     # removing first two characters which actually are the salt for safety
     return encrypted[2, encrypted.size - 2]
   end

in order to do it correctly you will need the salt that the game in question uses

Okay so afterwards in RMX-OS instead of looking like this
PNucLKbRpieMw

It'll look like this?
ucLKbRpieMw


It makes more sense now. But how would we take the first two letters off in PHP then?

EDIT:
How come when I'm doing exactly what you're doing I never get the same code.
I did the PHP thing with entrypass and got this
XSv/865igJMXM

My php code is this.
<?php
$pass = 'entrypass';
$string = crypt($pass, 'XS');
echo $string;
?>


What am I doing wrong?

EDIT 2: Changed Salt to PN instead of XS. But I still need to know how to knock off the first two letters.

EDIT 3: Nevermind. Found the 'substr' method. And I finally got it working! WOO! What this page does that I made is you can login, view your stats, and change your password. The change password is almost done, but I was having troubles with the login part.

Once I finish that, then I'll make my register page.

did you follow the guide for how to install ruby?


Ryexander@Oh... I don't think I have ^^"... so can you give me the link to the guide? and... I need to uninstall it and reinstall it right???
Jackolas@Oh? Then how is it supposed to be when I installed correctly???

first install the Ruby 1.8.6 installer, you can get it here: http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/
You want the Ruby 1.8.6 One-Click Installer

after you installed that 1 you need to patch it to make it work with RMX-OS

download the Ruby 1.9.1 package. you can get it here: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167
You want the ruby-1.9.1-p243-doc-chm-rc1.7z

extract the Ruby 1.9.1 package into the installation folder of the Ruby 1.8.6
overwrite everything.

now Ruby should work.

this is btw the first chapter of the manual you get with RMX-OS

If you can't run .rb files on click, then you haven't installed Ruby 1.8.7 properly.

I think you messed up real bad. Uninstall Ruby, install Ruby 1.8.6, REMEMBER THE INSTALLATION LOCATION, get Ruby 1.9.1 and overwrite the files in the installation folder of 1.8.6.

This is a great script. For only having been messing around with it for about 3 hours and just now getting it to work. Server is on my linux box thanks to edwardthefma for the mysql.so fix. Only problem i have is when i exit the game it doesn't update the server in case i decided to go right back in really quick for something. Took about 5 minutes for server to realize i logged out. But meh i can deal with that.

Great job Blizzard. Now to get some other scripts to work with it.

(EDIT: Is there a way to password protect a server. Like if i have two servers have one passworded so only testers/admind/mods could join?)

Um... I'm pretty sure you can...
Just have the server select screen go to a new scene that asks for the password for the protected server.

Of course, it'd require an edit.

I figured it would require a edit. I'm just not good with ruby and rgss. Then again i could have it go to a blank map ask for the password through events till i find a scripter. But i was just wondering so once i have a decent amount of a game that I'm just now starting i could have a dev server for like admins and few beta testers to test out new things until the bugs are worked out.

There's no need. Just make two clients. One that has in the configuration the normal server and another one that has the normal server and the test server. People with the configured connection to the normal server simply won't have access to the other server and that's that. We're practically doing the same while working on Remexos.

I was trying to make it easer on me so i wouldnt have to worry about to two clients. but i guess that two clients would be the easier way to though.

The point of ports is that you don't have to know the app using the port but only the port. You need to configure it for 50000 (since that's the one you're using in your configuration). If you really think the application part is going to make a difference, you can try "ruby" or "rubyw". In any case, you should rather try www.portforward.com

Ok so its the same with me but im still able to connect. For the server put the computers internal address as the host. in the game client just put the external. Or how i did it was us no-ip.com if you dont have static address See if it works. it works for me.

My problem is i keep getting this error trying to login.
QuoteMySQl server has gone away
./Data/Action_Handler.rb:57:in 'query'

./Data/Client.rb:111:in 'check_connection'
./Data/Client.rb:47:in 'handle'
./Data/Server.rb:173:in 'block in run'


I restart server and it will be ok for the first two connects then it throws that error again. I've tried both my linux box and my windows box. both throw exact errors. Any suggestions?

look at my qoutes. thats what happened to me. figured out i had use internal of the computer i was using to find that out open up command line (if vista type cmd in the search box on start menu hit enter) type ipconfig in the cmd. write down the 192.168.x.x number then double check you forward your ports right. I forwarded both tcp and upd to be on save side. Then for the RMX-OS option script do this

Go to no-ip.com sign up for free. on the server computer download their free program set up a host. Then run their program will update ip when it needs to be. Then in the option script put the name of the host you made. If you need help with this just hit me up on aim: kir royale 9584 and we can see whats the problem with your server. Also double check that your mysql is correct to.

@ShadowIce: Your IP needs to be 192.168.X.Y. 127.0.0.1 is not open toward outside.

@crzyone9584: The MySQL connection died. O_o Try a low DATABASE_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT setting (i.e. 1 which means it will reconnect every minute).

@whitespirits: It's really easy. Put all Blizz-ABS plugins below Blizz-ABS and all RMX-OS plugins below RMX-OS. Add the server extensions to the extensions folder and add their filenames to the EXTENSIONS array in the config. That's it.

As admin you can use global chat (just refer to the manual). Just send a global message to everybody that the server will restart in 5 minutes or something like that. That's one of the things that command was intended for. :)

It's in the manual. Just check the "Special Commands" chapter. You can even completely deactivate it so the player can't press F5 to make it show during an event.

i know the global command i was just wondering if it could be done automatically. But i guess global is fine.

It's in the manual. Just check the "Special Commands" chapter. You can even completely deactivate it so the player can't press F5 to make it show during an event.

I most of missed this. I will recheck this after noon and see what i can do.

EDIT: Wondering while planning features for my game:

Would any of these be possible with your system blizzard?

Trade system
Personal guild maps.
Guild Ranks
Guild Banks - Bank system for each guild
Click on player to see Stats (health lvl MP)

Ok thanks. I figured the bank and everything could be obtained by eventing. Its the maps and trading. Is PVP and PVE planned? I haven't read the entire 20 some odd pages yet but getting there. Can only read so much before i get bored.

Can you explain that a bit?

Guild Ranks


I see no reason why this can't be done outside of the game. i.e. a guild organizes its own ranks within the game as they like it. There is no connection to the game whatsoever.

PVE is already possible with Blizz-ABS and the Blizz-ABS plugin. The full version of the plugin will have PVP as well.
You don't need to read the entire topic. Only the last 20 pages of the topic are somehow relevant since most older stuff is outdated, reported bugs that have already been fixed, etc..
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: crzyone9584 on February 10, 2010, 03:28:26 am
A personal map for each guild. So a guild can go to their own "castle" like in guild wars. For the ranks i was figuring that if the game supported ranks certain people would have access to certain things in guilds. Like new members wouldn't be able to access guild funds with out asking.

For the trade i must of missed it. I'll have to re read the entire documentation.

For the banking system i would just assign a variable to each guild would i not? Well i guess that question is a little off topic lol. Well i guess im off to get blizz abs to work correctly lol. Just need to config everything.

But how about getting scripts to save into the mysql system? Still not sure how to get that to work.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 10, 2010, 05:25:56 am
You need to add the additional variables and classes to the configuration. I think I haven't added a detailed explanation of how the saving system works, but the setting for the save data is explained in the manual.

Then all that stuff can be done with eventing with combination of a few script calls (i.e. to check the guildname, etc.).
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Lost King on February 10, 2010, 01:15:24 pm
I haven't checked through the manual or read through the Global Variable plugin, but is it possible to add Guild specific variables? Something like reputation so you can compare them to other guilds in the world, or are the variables only for individual characters? Another thought might be just adding to the player variables depending on what guild they're in. Anyways, is this possible already? I think I might've worded it confusingly.

Ok so one hides the names of the sprites and other script call just hides the chat bubbles. I want to hide what is on the inside of the red lines.

Why does false need to be on a new line?

@Blizzard - the chapters for all data setting in my manual all says "This chapter needs to be written yet." Thats data storage chapter and Data model chapter. Unless save data information is in a different location.

also
$game_temp.chat_sprites =

Does not hide the chat window. I'm thinking it only hides the bubbles above the head. (refer to post above a few with picture to see what i want to hide during a text/cutscene

Something about the way Ruby does stuff with code. I'unno, Blizz could probably explain it, I just know that whenever you want to make something true/false in a script call, it needs to be on a new line.

Because RMXP has a problem with the false assignment of variables in one line. Either that or get Juan's Interpreter fix.

As I said, I didn't explain how it works. That chapter is intended for that. SAVE_DATA in the server configuration (chapter 2.2 or 2.3) explains how to set it up.

chat_active hides the chat. Just refer to the manual for all script calls you need.

The manual has no information on the plugins. It's kinda obvious. :P
You can do all that with global switches/variables and by using the script calls to check the guilds. I said that already. Of course it would be less of a hassle to include a guild variable in the database.

I'm not going to add any guild-related features because they are unnecessary for a basic game. If you want to make a good MMO with RMXP, you won't get anywhere without a scripter anyway. So get somebody else to do it.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 17, 2010, 04:54:24 pm
Did you add additional save data? If the creation of those classes requires arguments, then you need to create default create data as well. i.e. Game_Actor can't be instantiated just like that. Game_Actor.new will give you exactly the same error you are getting. Game_Actor.new(0) will work, though. That's why there is CREATION_DATA[Game_Actor] = '0'.

Kinda off topic, but an idea.
Make a small extension for RMX-OS server that will add a function for CTRL+X or similar that will
1. Start a 30 Second Shutdown Timer
2. Every 5 seconds post a global message in the chat box saying
            "The server is shutting down. Please Log-Off. (X) Seconds remaining.
                                       or
    Call something in client so that a information box comes up like this...

So instead of the server randomly shutting down, it warns people automatically. (Just an idea, past game engines I used had this)

I repeat: RMX-OS is supposed to provide a good base system. It is very extensible so you should make use of it. I'm not going to add every single possible feature into it.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

As admin you can use /eval and /geval. i.e.

/geval $game_party.actors[0].exp += 10000 if $network.user_id == 12


You've just given player with user ID 12 10000 EXP.

/geval $game_party.gain_gold(10000) if $network.username == 'Blizzard'


You've just given player with username Blizzard 10000 gold.

But if you want real custo commands, you'll have to code them yourself. You can take a look at the Blizz-ABS Controller plugin how the additional commands are added. Keep in mind that you won't be able to do much if you can't script or if you don't know RMX-OS well as system.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: crzyone9584 on February 23, 2010, 02:48:25 am
Scripting and know RMX-OS is one of my problems. Still working on getting to know RMX-OS's system But with /geval adn /eval can i use any $game_party command. Also side note i don't know all the $game_party commands. Is there a place i could read about the commands for $game_Party?

And to disable commands would it be like this?

DISABLED_CHAT_COMMANDS = [gcreate, gnewpass]


QuoteDISABLED_CHAT_COMMANDS
Defines built-in chat commands that cannot be used during the game at all.


The info didn't really tell me how to put the commands in there.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 23, 2010, 03:48:50 am
I'm usually assuming that you know the very least of scripting to know what a string and an array is. I know, it's not something I should assume, but without that knowledge it's impossible to configure 50% of all scripts.

DISABLED_CHAT_COMMANDS = ['gcreate', 'gnewpass']


Or:

DISABLED_CHAT_COMMANDS = ["gcreate", "gnewpass"]


I suggest using the first variant if you don't need specific string features (i.e. non-printable characters or variable embedding), because single quoted strings are processed faster by Ruby.

Sephiroth Spawn made one, but it's SDK dependent. Another possibility would be if somebody wants to take the RMX-OS implementation of the player sprites and use it for events. It's probably a 15-30 minutes job. Writing the instructions and filtering a name (i.e. \n[NAME] in an event's name) should take the most time.

hi, i'm new to this site. Anyway, I'm using version 1.08 and have experienced some bugs. If these are fixed in version 1.09 then please tell me and I'll switch to that.

Bugs:
Pressing the "x" key to enter the menu or exit something doesn't work
You can trade with yourself. It might be a bug with the actual trade system, but this causes a crash
After logging out and then re-logging in, your battle graphics for your actors are not saved. I'm using the standard battle system btw

Thanks for listening and I hope you can fix these. I love the actual script though.

Oh and is there anyway that you can make some items non-tradable as trading quest items can help you progress ahead in quests without actually doing it. Thanks.

Thanks for the bug reports. I don't think any of the bugs have been fixed yet. I'll look into them.

The only thing that is not a bug are the battle graphics. You need to add @battler_name and @battler_hue in the SAVE_DATA[Game_Actor] array.

As for the non-tradable items, I'll simply change it so you can't trade items that have a price of 0 (it works the same way with non-sellable items in shops).

I managed to function a testplay with the scripts given for RMX-OS, I logged in and did all that jazz, can even wander the maps and kill enemies...

But what steps do I need to take to make it so someone else can wander these maps too?
I can imagine it has to do with the cfg.ini + RMX-OS(options) + my IP, but umm, I didn't see anything about the methods in the manual, maybe I missed it?

If not, can someone explain it briefly to me?

No worries, everyone's new at things sometime or other. How are you connected to the internet? Are there other computers in your house that are also connected?

Then in order for other people to connect to your network, you need to set up port-forwarding. I can help you with that if you can find the model number for your router.

As far as i know, I have already done the portforwarding part. before that, nothing worked for even me, but once I did it, everything worked at least for me. Therefore, I don't think that's the problem.

What's your IP? I'll ping it and see if I can connect. If I can, that means that the error is in your script configuration, and not your router. If you don't feel comfortable posting it, PM it to me.

You use an old configuration file. You need to configure the new file rather than replacing it with your old file because new options have been added.

um...i'm not sure how to do that.(this is when putting off to learn RGSS scripting comes back to haunt me) :(

I've been having a problem that from what I read appears to be fairly "original," shall we say. My server is up and running fine, but as soon as I try and connect to it from the client, I get an error.


Script '(RMX-OS) Script' line 2556: Errno::ECCONNRESET occured.
An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.


My computer is the host, so I'm not really sure what it means by that, but from what I can tell it runs the connection but then immediately terminates it. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Or has anyone even gotten an error like this one before?

Btw great job on the script Blizzard, I know that might seem sarcastic since I'm asking for help but it's really sincere. You're a really good scripter.

@King_Ooga_TonTon: Best you read the whole topic, several people have had the same problem. It's mainly either because you didn't set up port forwarding on your router properly or because you didn't set the RMX-OS server to be visible outside of your own PC (127.0.0.1 and localhost are within your PC only, you need to use your external network IP).

Bring up your command prompt window. Type in ipconfig. Your local host will wither be 127.0.0.1 or more likely a 192.168.x.x ip Find the 192.168.x.x and put it in the config file.

(x.x. - is more numbers for your ip.)

I also suggest using no-ip or something like that to hide your external ip when you ship out your client.

Why is userdata in its own table?

It could easily (and much more convenient) in users, since there's no more than one instance in it anyway. It saves having to call two queries as well... (to get USER_ID and then GUILD_ID or so forth...)

Post by: Ryex on March 23, 2010, 07:46:11 pm
ya know it is IMPOSSIBLE to help you without knowing EXACTLY what error it is giving you. if the window is closing on you before you can then open command prompt and them past the full file path in the the cmd and press enter the server will run and it has a error it will tell you with out closeing. at that point you can copy it or screen shot it for us.

@Blizz I'm trying to build an extension for RMX-OS that when paired with my gui can provide functions one of the things I wanted it to do was print the loaded extensions and tell you when the server restarted even if the window is not visible. to do this I was going to connect to it as a client and send a special message that would make the extension recognize it as the GUI and then send it the list of extensions online clients ect.
here is the thing. I believe that the extensions can be printed from the keys in the @extensions hash. but is it possible to cache the restart command and send a message to the GUI? or for that matter a message when the server has a shutdown command at all?
or would I have to overwrite some methods for this.

localhost is... a local server (hosted by you)
hence: localhost
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: WhiteRose on March 23, 2010, 10:34:38 pm
It means your own computer. Basically, connecting to localhost is connecting to your own computer without using or requiring any sort of networking transmission media; you don't even need to have a working internet connection. All that is required, as far as I know, is that you have the TCP/IP Protocol suite installed, and that comes with all popular operating systems. The IP Address for localhost is always 127.0.0.1.

(EDIT: Feildmaster beat me to it. :))

Post by: Blizzard on March 24, 2010, 02:33:56 am
@Ryex: Communication of different applications can be done in different ways and the easiest is probably simply communication through a file. You should make a server extension that goes with your GUI and then simply alias the required methods in RMX-OS so it writes the extensions to a file when the server shuts down. Simply check with the GUI every second if that file exists. If it does, open it, read it, close it, delete it and display the read data.

Oh I had assumed he put the database on another computer... Stupid assumptions.

The IP (200.149.100.248) is your network or connection IP (im not sure which its listing as)

Use 127.0.0.1 or Localhost

127.0.0.1 lets you connect to the computer its on, from that same computer.

200.149.100.248, is either your network IP or the IP to let others connect to your server.

I use the localhost ip in the server configuration and internal ip (200.149.100.248) in the configuration of the client?

Ok, i will test it. But I'm not sure that this will work out.

Obs : I'm using a "ip variable" dial-up connection.
Obs 2 : I don't forget to change the ip of client.

Finally :

Grunje: I have to know.

Is the computer where the server is, the same as where you are playing on?

Are you trying to get other people to connect or just you?

If it's only you, and its all on the same computer, please change all instances of 201.5.246.167 to 127.0.0.1 (in cfg and in RPG maker)

If you want to make it so other people can connect... That requires the 201 IP, and depending on your routers, you yourself may not be able to connect to your own internet IP (it's like that for me)
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: G_G on March 25, 2010, 10:34:17 pm
the host needs to be the internal ip, go to the command prompt and type in ipconfig it'll be like 192.168.1.x or something along those lines then you need the 201 ip in the client.

Oh right.. Port forwarding makes the internal IP better than using the actual IP...

First I'd update the OS to the current version of 1.09. And see if it fixes. You should always use the newest version of a program that is released. Then only touch the Host and SqlHost options in the config and see if it works.

You are using a dial up connection for internet? You don't seriously expect the server to work normally on an unreliable type of connection such as dial-up?! If you want to test the server locally, use localhost (or 127.0.0.1). If you want to run it so others can see it, you need an external server.

Delete your database and create it again. If it still happens, check the server log. If the it's a server-side problem, the log should have caught the error.

All netplays i have tested all, except your, worked successfully with dial up.
Dial up connection isn't a problem. I think until everything is working perfectly on the server/mysql.
The "Offline" appears so fast, that i think wich the problem is in the Client.

Obs : I have tested use localhost (127.0.0.1) and the Client continues to show me Offline

Dial-up connections are not steady, connection timeouts are very frequent and they are slow on top of all. You might be able to support a few clients online and that's that. Dial-up connections usually work on 56kbps connections which means 7kB transfer rate per second. Technically (e.g. when using pixel movement in Blizz-ABS) 7kB per second is the network traffic that can be generated by just one single client.

wow 7kB? that not much at all? mot MMO's have 5-8 times that. even the 2D ones like maple story! but ya Dial-up connections and MMO's DON'T work, have you ever wondered why the minimum for most multi-player games is a broadband connection? for ONE client? you likely would have a hard time sporting more than two users... oh and did i forget to tell you that Dial-up connections LOVE to break data streams? the data the client receives has a good chance of being incomplete. that means glitches and errors.

So far from what i know the only way to have different characters is to make a starting map where users may choose a avatar and then with an event change the character avatar. Other than that there is no way to customize a user to my knowledge as far what you want.

The only way to do it is the same way we're doing it in Remexos: multiple sprites for each selected character piece.
And no, I don't have a script for that, at least not one that I have released.

The system with the sprites is simple, it works the same way a visual equipment script does. It displays several sprites for one character (i.e. one sprite for the body, one for the hair, etc.).

So I've decided to try my hand at messing with my RMX-OS project again only to find this error whenever I try to connect:

Script '(RMX-OS) Script' line 2556: Errno::ECONNREFUSED occured.
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

The game has worked before, I'm using version 1.09 of RMX-OS, last time I used it was in February, I tried deleting the database and remaking it, which I'm pretty sure got me to this error, before I couldn't manage to get the server to say it was online even when connecting to 127.0.0.1. I haven't changed any parts of the script since I last had it working and I've got the GUI running as well as Hamachi as my server connection thing. Any help?

As I already said, when you upgrade RMX-OS, DO NOT KEEP YOUR OLD CONFIGURATION FILE. Configure the server again instead. It's possible that I added new options and when you don't use a new configuration file, the server will crash because some configurations didn't exist earlier.

As I said, get a fresh config file and configure your server again.
Make sure your configuration of the client and the server is correct. If it worked before than that is the only possible problem that there could be.

Ahh, that worked, thanks ;D

I really need to make notes somewhere on how to make it work, there's always something that screws me up whenever I get back to working on it.

EDIT: Alas, if only for a second >..>
The error is back, and now I'm lead to believe it's something to do with the extensions. I'm using ATES and the Blizz-ABS Controller, back when I started the project they both worked, and without them enabled the server works, but when I include them in either the box in the GUI or the brackets in the cfg file I get the error from before. They're both up to date, and I spelled the file names correctly, I'm not exactly sure I organized them right in the cfg file, but even when using the GUI it gave me the error, trying to run the .rb file itself instead of the GUI gave me the Prevent_zombie_clients message.

Any help?

This doesn't sound like an RMX-OS issue. It sounds like the Data files for your game are either corrupted, or a few are missing. If you want to check for yourself, look in the Data subfolder of your project folder.

...Did you have a Map 6 and delete it at some point?

You'll get this error if you have an event or script which specifically calls for it (like a transition event, where you move the character to a different map) and the game can't find it anymore. Typically, this means you deleted the map (or made a copy of it) and didn't update your event.

Data saving and loading with RMX-OS doesn't work the same way as it would with a typical game. As this is not a specific area of expertise for me, I welcome someone with more experience to correct me if I make a mistake here:

It is my understanding that RMX-OS saves client data to the SQL database that you assign when setting up the server. Thus, "logging in" to your account is loading this data from the SQL database and passing it to the client, where it interprets this data and then performs a "load game" function. Put simply, logging in is roughly the same thing as loading your game, the data just gets sent to/from a different place.

If you are using a pre-existing account with data that was previously saved, that data already exists in the SQL database. Hence, any saves you made when you were originally experiencing the issue are still corrupt. Changes saved after loading from those files should also be corrupt.

Unless you manually deleted the data from the SQL database or logged in on an account that has no existing data, you're probably getting the same error because the data was never deleted. I don't know enough about the inner workings of RMX-OS to make an accurate statement on whether or not you could still get a corruption issue loading from a new account in a database that has "incompatible" older data, but I would tend to think it would be okay for that particular client.

I don't believe that a patch/file verification service is something that is realistically achievable through scripting. It's technically possible, but not feasible.
You would basically have two, possibly three, options.

1) Use a file synchronization tool, like SVN.
2) Develop a stand-alone patching tool using a real programming language.
3) It might be technically possible to have the user client send a "version number" through a global variable and have RMX-OS check this number against the server's variable for a match (ie: the client sends a hard-coded number that you manually change with each release; if it's a different number from the "live" version there will be a mismatch,) but someone with more experience working with RMX-OS would have to weigh in on that.

The first method is the easiest of the three by a pretty big margin.

Edit: Clarification.

this is already implemented with the VERSION variable in the CFG if the clients number is less that the server number it won't let them connect.

It's in the manual.

2.1 - Server Configuration:
QuoteRMXOS_VERSION
Defines the server version. It's used for version checking of clients connecting. It should be less or equal to a client's version in order to make the client able to connect. This is mainly used to prevent older clients from connecting to a newer server.


...You should already have been in the config file while setting up the server, check for the RMXOS Version and set it manually.

Change it when you push an update.

You need to change it in both the server configuration file, and in the individual script that is included in the game client.

Wait...
Quoteless or equal to a client's version

Shouldn't it be equal ONLY? If less than the client's version can connect, then the older versions can connect too right? The version keep increasing ex.1.01, 1.02, 1.03... then what do i do if i want only the equal ones can connect? And by the way, if I change it in both my cfg file and my script, i'm changing my client, not the server right? Even if I changed it, can the server detect others whose client is older and ask them to update?

The wording is little tricky. I understand how it can be a little confusing, as it threw me for a loop when I read it the first time, too.

Notice it says less than or equal to the client, not the server.

If the client's version is 1, and the server's version is 1: the server is the same as the client, so the client can connect.
If the client's version is 1, and the server's version is 2: the server is GREATER THAN the client. The client cannot connect.

The only way it's possible for a client's version to be higher than the server's version is if the client's version number is changed and the server's is not. This isn't possible unless you let the users edit the project file directly or you forget to update both version numbers when you push the client update.

QuoteAnd by the way, if I change it in both my cfg file and my script, i'm changing my client, not the server right? Even if I changed it, can the server detect others whose client is older and ask them to update?


If you change your server cfg.ini file, you are updating the server version number.
If you change your script VERSION (line 63,) you are updating the client version number.

...Make your changes to a duplicate copy of your project (updated maps, additional scripts, whatever.) When you're done, update the version in the script. Now you have the "old version" which is the one that's currently live, and the "new" version which is your working version.

When you're ready to release your working version, make it available to your players and change the version in your server configuration file to match it.

Did you check your actors' starting levels in the database?

If those are initialized to level 1, then your level is probably being modified by an event in play. Have you created any "debugging" events that you forgot to switch off?

Hey Blzz I have noticed a very strange error with add ons, for some reason they will randomly stop responding, this is very common with addons that have their own server thread ie the global ATES. I was testing it to day and for some reason it just stopped sending the time and the ates didn't update.
the server also seems to have a tendency to not notice when some one logs off. when this happens the chat usually locks up too and any messages you send won't appear in the chat box, and sometimes when that happens saving when you cross maps stops working too. any idea what is going on?

the more I look at this it seems like the threads the server is using are falling asleep and not being picked back up. but that is just a guess and I really don't know what is going on.

whenever I try to trade, when I do confirm or abort, I get an undefined method error on line 4024. the line is
@trade_wait_window.set_text(RMXOS::Data::TradeNoPlayer)

Since I figured out this is to check if the other player is there, I tried commenting it out and it works when I try to trade with myself. However, it still gives the same error otherwise....


edit: I fixed the error where the X key didnt work by getting tons custom controls. Also, for custom controls, can you change what button is equal to f6, because whenever I do, it doesnt act as if I had used f6.

I am having an error with your script :(. When I run the server it just opens then closed right away, if I used "SciTE" it tells me:
"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Any ideas? When I use the GUI, it tells me that the database is fine, the connection is working and the settings are fine, but when I start the server I get the same error?

I am using 1.09 by the way.

It doesn't work with or without the GUI, which does seem to work. And I do have ruby installed and I have been using it for quite a while. But yes I am starting to think it something wrong with my computer. Any kind of networking or TCP stuff with ruby is not working, I checked after I posted, I can get ruby scripts to connect but can not send or receive anything. If I connect to the net with a ruby script e.g. a time server, it works fine, but if I connect to my own pc in any way no messages get through. So I suppose its my pc, so I will have to try and sort out whats going on there. Thanks for you help WhiteRose and Cait Sith. :D

this however is a VERY advanced request as it is basically a visual equipment system but it has to transmit the data necessary for the other clients to recreate the players sprite.


O_o It already does. The weapon ID and the armor IDs of the other players are transmitted via the Blizz-ABS plugin. Visual Equipment just makes sure that it displays everything.

I'm not quite sure if this is what he's talking about, but sometimes ATES time will be like 13:32 when it should be 13:53. However, restarting the server fixes this...

How I've seen the chat system work is that if you type a message it will go to the bottom. When a new message is arrived the old message moves up. The chat system is in a reverse state from a regular chat system in mmo where new chats are at top and older ones are on the bottom.

@Blizz I'm almost sure that the errors are caused by threads sleeping and not waking up (strange as that sounds) how ever I'm unable to do any more meaning full testing as i do not under stand the subject.

I give you the results
I edited the code a bit to log a message just before a thread went to sleep.
i placed these log points in the matnence and anti_zombie threads as well as the main thread for the ATES addon
I then proceed to test the server.
the first time I started the server the threads making the logs hung after the first sleep command. there was only one message in the files and it stayed that way
the second time it worked normally, the files grew in size as the messages kept getting printed
the third time it hung again.
it worked fine for the next 20-30 times then it hung again and then worked for another 50 or so times.
I have no idea what is causing this and I did not run the server for any length of time so I can't say if it would of hung latter.
I did look up some info on 1.9 threading modal it appears that it creates green threads and then links them to system threads but controls them with a global interpreter lock allowing only one to execute at a time could this setup be causing strange problems? causing the threads to hang? if so it would explain a lot of behavior, including the ATES not sending time updates, and the BABS add-on suddenly ceasing to control monsters.

Hmm. I believe that somewhere in the script (I don't recall if it's in the Client RGSS script or the Ruby Server script, but I'm fairly certain it's in the Server script configuration,) there is a line for limiting maximum users. I believe the default is 50. Are you sure that is greater than two?

Another possibility is that there is something wrong with your second friend's computer; maybe try and get a third person to try it and see if it works for them.

With an idea from me and the smarts from Ryex. I ran several commands through the Ruby Prompt in RMX-OS.

These commands I tried included

print Thread.list.inspect (first)

It came up with Thread 0, 1, 2, and 4 sleeping while only thread[3] was running.

Continuing doing what Ryex had come up with, we ended up with knowing the thread[3] happens to me Thread.current too.

Basically only the current thread seems to be running while all the others sleep as if RMX-OS doesn't multi thread.

Not sure if this will help at all but it may turn out to be a large discovery. Ryex also tried this on his PC and got the same results. It is NOT just PNO.

Here is an update on the thread situation...

Basically sometime last night the server went into its sleep mode.

So this morning I tested the threads like last night, I tested thread 4 or thread [3] due to starting count at 0 and it was running. Then I did a thread.list.inspect and there were ALOT of threads.

I am not sure if this is a bug or not, but it dosnt look right XD.

well Blizz I did some tests of my own and normally when you log out your removed form the $clients array and they connection thread closes so i have no clue why the server is sitting with 31 threads. there was certainly never 27 people online
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: jcsnider on April 17, 2010, 02:31:19 pm
Ok I have been monitoring the RMX-OS server like a hawk today and I think I have fount some good information which was prove RMX-OS innocent of any bugs/errors...

Basically I had fount that the server would get no errors, then it would get 2 errors at a time saying connection forcably closed...

When this happend I checked how many clients were connected. The answer was 9. Basically whenever the users were getting over 10, it would kick one or two of them.

I didnt look at how many threads there were, I had already taken the server down but my theory is that when the connection is forceably closed it dosn't close the thread? Maybe?

Now, hooking all of this together... Windows 2000 has a 10 concurrent connection limit (Found by Ryex) so it may turn out to be the 10 connection limit.

Anyways, the second I can I plan to
1. Install Win2000 Server
or
2. Install Ubuntu server

And that will prove the problem :p

I will then report back.

Does the thread problem happen on every PC? I'll take a deeper look at that. It's possible that Ruby is having problems. I know that I never had problems with other threads being inactive.

Hello all,
I already made a message like this, but my log in time passed out, so I have to rewrite it  :'(, so I will keep this short.

I find this an awesome script, but I keep on getting tons of errors when I try to run the queries:
I tried to run the RMX-OS SQL Datababase file and after that the update files, but it didn't work.
When I try to run the Database file, I get this error:
Script line: 11   Cannot delete or update a parent row: a foreign key constraint fails
It's on the line that says it has to drop down guilds.
When I try to run the 0.83 to 0.84 file, I get this error:
Script line: 7   You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1
When I try to run the 0.87 to 0.9 file, I get this error:
Script line: 8   Table 'guilds' already exists
But I guess that's because I first ran the RMX-OS SQL Database file.
However, the 1.01 to 1.08 file gives no problems.
I'm using MySQL Query Browser.

And I've got another question: Where should I use Localhost and where my real IP? When I try to use my real IP in the script, the script is hanging.

I know these are alot of questions, but I hope you can still answer them  :^_^:.

Uhm, short, yeah, right...  :^_^':

Oh, and Blizz, you're the best!

When Ryex tested RMX-OS on his computer he had 4 threads and yes, only 1 was running.

Also, I have an Ubuntu computer up and running. It had the same error with the 10 current connection because it is virtual and the host was 2000 pro. I have run a hack and it will now allow more than 10 connections. I will see if everything is working when I get home.

If so, it was a win2000 thing.

Post by: jcsnider on April 19, 2010, 04:17:22 pm
I let the server run all day today while I was at school. When I came back, I logged on and was able to use the chatbox and save. The ATES however was not working properly.

Anyways. The Ubuntu server and the host win2000 hack seemed to work. I have requested my father to bring the server home and I will install Ubuntu as the main operating system which will remove a limit of connections what so ever.

The only weird thing I have left though, is that even though 6 people were online. When I tried to use print Thread.list.inspect over 50 threads came up. O.o

I am not sure if this means anything, from in-game the server looked fine. Overall I am okay if it stays that way but I am concerned that it maybe consuming ram or maybe a bug of not closing the threads completely.

Other than that everything is now fine and it seems like it was just windows blocking the server.

this will most definitely end up as a problem if the sever runs for more than a few days. perhaps wee need some sort of thread controller in the main operation thread to make sure threads close and run properly.

Sorry for the second time I post this, but nobody replied to my other post  :^_^':.

Well, I'm trying to make my RMX-OS game work, but I have got a problem: Two days ago it still worked fine. Well, fine, I was at least able to log into the MySQL Query Browser. I tried to run the queries, but they gave errors. The next day (yesterday) I wasn't able to log into MySQL Query Browser anymore at all. The strange thing is: Nothing responds to Localhost or that other numbers that equal Localhost. MySQL, the RMX-OS GUI, everywhere the computer says that Localhost isn't allowed to connect to the MySQL server. The exact error:


Could not connect to the specified instance.

MySQL Error Number 1130
Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

If you want to check the network connection, please click the Ping button.


That's the error for the MySQL Query Browser. For the GUI:


The object reference is not set to a copy of this object.


Thanks in advance!

It is a MySql user problem. Considering it isn't working with your query browser and what not you can determine that it is NOT a RMX-OS error so just google it.

I googled it (yay!) and I found half of the solution. I first stopped the MySQL service, then cd'd a prompt to the bin folder and use 'mysqld --stop-grant-tables'. In an other prompt, cd'd to the bin folder, I use 'mysqld --update-check --all-databases --auto-repair' and I can log in. I go to the command line client and use 'CREATE USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY "MY PASSWORD (I WON'T TELL YOU!)"', but it says that it can't do that, because the MySQL server is running with --skip-grant-tables. I tried to google how to stop --skip-grant-tables, but I couldn't find it. Anybody has a solution? Thank you in advance!

For ubuntu I got the ruby package by typing "sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.1-full" into the terminal. That is strait from the Ruby website. That version and the windows version should be the same.

Edit: Here is a picture of the threads... the server THINKS there is 50 people online. There are 74 threads though. Which is nothing compared to 15 people with 60 something threads like yesterday

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on April 24, 2010, 08:30:07 pm
well it appears that the threads are no longer sticking around when successful disconnects. thats one problem down. however the server can still go into a "sleep like" state where it doesn't notice disconnections and the chat box doesn't respond (any messages sent do not appear in that chat box) etc. sometimes you can change maps a few times but most of the time the script will hang on a map change.
new users can still join and login to which is weird. as those messages are process in the same thread as the client right? so if the client thread is not processing messages why can users still log in? thought the login screen dose not seem to time out and disconnect as it should
as there is no visible flaw in the flow of the code for RMX-OS that could cause this. I'm lead to believe that the thread the client is running under stops executing at some point meaning that messages aren't processed.
could this be a threading problem? the fact that Threads.list produces a list off all thread but only the thread from which the command is called in running while all other sleep still seems strange to me. if they are really thread and not green thread (which are pointless for a server application as I understand it) then at least one of thous 15 odd threads should be running also.
Global Interrupter Lock perhaps?

It works like this. When you use p Thread.list in the prompt, the currently executing thread is the Ruby prompt thread while all the others have to be asleep.

I think Thread.list only displays the internal application threads within your currently running instance of the Ruby Interpreter. All other threads are mostly irrelevant anyway.

BTW, v1.11 is up. I forgot to fix the trading bug the last time.

if your having this much trouble then you should consider giving up and finding something less technically involved, running a server is going to be a huge challenge for you if you know this little about using a computer.
in answer to your question. have your tried maybe looking at the help file your your manager? I can guarantee you that you will find a section about running SQL queries. one you find the interface you need just copy paste the code from the file into the editor and press start or execute or what ever your manager has.

OR have you even tried going to "file, open" if you find an option that says "sql script" then use it, navigate to the database sql script and open it. it should then bring up an interface to run the script.

if you can figure this out then you should REALLY consider giving up. this is the VERY VERY EASY part of running a server.

also the IP address you use in your Config will either need to be 127.0.0.1 if you plan on using it on your computer or you EXTERNAL IP if you want others to be able to connect.

if your having this much trouble then you should consider giving up and finding something less technically involved, running a server is going to be a huge challenge for you if you know this little about using a computer.
in answer to your question. have your tried maybe looking at the help file your your manager? I can guarantee you that you will find a section about running SQL queries. one you find the interface you need just copy paste the code from the file into the editor and press start or execute or what ever your manager has.

OR have you even tried going to "file, open" if you find an option that says "sql script" then use it, navigate to the database sql script and open it. it should then bring up an interface to run the script.

if you can figure this out then you should REALLY consider giving up. this is the VERY VERY EASY part of running a server.

also the IP address you use in your Config will either need to be 127.0.0.1 if you plan on using it on your computer or you EXTERNAL IP if you want others to be able to connect.


I agree with this completely. Although, I remember my first time trying to use Netplay 2.0 O.o, Blizz and I were in a convo for over 2 hrs and he was trying to walk me though how to set up MySql... I think we finally got it working and I didnt like it XD.

Okay...
Since there are people with errors for MYSQL...

1- UNINSTALL, Apache AND Mysql... (EVERY PROGRAM OF IT)
2- Clean the computer. (By using a program like this: CCleaner (http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/))
2.1- After downloading and installing select {Run Cleaner} (it deletes unnecessary files)
2.2- Click on Registry
2.3- Scan for Issues
2.4- Fix Selected Issues
2.5- Select no to backup registry (its a pain, and you wouldn't know what to do with the backup anyway)
2.6- Fix All Issues
2.7 Repeat 2.3-2.6 until no issues are found
2.8 Restart your computer (IMPORTANT, When uninstalling things, people never do this, when they SHOULD, [creates errors])
2.7 Do process 2.3-2.6 to make sure there are no issues
3- Download the EASIEST server package in the world... WampServer (Windows) (http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php)
4- Install it. It comes complete with every other program you need.

There, that should help EVERYONE that has problems with mysql. -_-

Post by: Blizzard on May 16, 2010, 04:02:53 pm
WAMP/XAMP is definitely an option. I'm just letting people figure that out by themselves. :P

I'm working on a plugin. How do I make it detect that the server is shutdown or is being shutdown. Its going to be an extension but I also had an idea, I was just going to alias a couple of methods in Server.rb and place it in its own .rb and add it to an extension. Would that work?

the only way i can think of to tell if you hit the x to close it thought would be to have a parallel program running to check the server

Okay, well I've got something else I'm working on. I need to know how to access a clients party, or give a client gold. Might as well tell you what I plan. I'm making a Random Gold extension.

After so many configurable minutes, it'll randomly choose a connected client. It'll give that person a random amount of gold between Min and Max. Then it sets Last_user to the client's name just so that same client can't get gold twice in a row. Then waits another configurable minutes.

EDIT: I know the idea sounds stupid, but its mostly for practice. I practically know nothing about Rmx-os. So it makes sense making silly small plugins for it.

Have you ever heard of the Internet and the information that is out there, my friend?

@G_G:

The method nathmatt posted:


def self.main
 # while server is running
  while RMXOS.server.running
    self.server_update #server is running
    sleep(0.1) # 0.1 seconds pause, decreases server load
  end
  # YOUR CODE BEFORE SHUTDOWN GOES HERE
  # server is shut down
end


Clicking X kills the server and I don't think there's a way around that. The only actual way I could think of would be that the server writes to a file every 5 seconds and if the file hasn't been modified for more than 10 seconds, everything outside of RMX-OS knows that RMX-OS isn't running anymore.

As for the other plugins...
RMX-OS is not related to the game in any way. There is almost not game data on the server. The only game data that is on the server while it's running is the data that is required for other clients to know where the client is standing, etc. You can't give people gold on the server and expect it to appear in game. RMX-OS is a server, not a client. It synchronizes clients. It does not run a messed up copy of the game like Netplay (hence RMX-OS runs a lot faster than Netplay).

You can always use the message code EVA when sending clients a message that they should interpret.

client.send("EVA$game_party.gain_gold(1000)")

Post by: G_G on May 21, 2010, 08:11:13 am
I tested that code out and it worked perfectly. However here's my code and how its setup but it doesn't seem that the its actually being updated. Here's my code.
module RMXOS

#------------------------------------------------------------------
# Passes the extension's main module to RMX-OS on the top
# level so it can handle this extension.
# Returns: Module of this extension for update.
#------------------------------------------------------------------
def self.load_current_extension
return RandomGold
end

end

#======================================================================
# module ExtensionSkeleton
#======================================================================

module RandomGold

VERSION = 1.0
RMXOS_VERSION = 1.11
SERVER_THREAD = true

# :::: START Configuration
TIME_WAIT = 10 # In Minutes : Must be whole number
  GOLD_MIN = 1
  GOLD_MAX = 500
# :::: END Configuration

#------------------------------------------------------------------
# Initializes the extension (i.e. instantiation of classes).
#------------------------------------------------------------------
def self.initialize
    @last_user = ""
    @time = 0
    @clients = []
end
#------------------------------------------------------------------
# Calls constant updating on the server.
#------------------------------------------------------------------
def self.main
# while server is running
while RMXOS.server.running
                                  self.server_update
sleep(1) # 1 seconds pause, decreases server load
end
end
#------------------------------------------------------------------
# Handles the server update.
#------------------------------------------------------------------
def self.server_update
# - YOUR SERVER CODE HERE
    @time += 1
    puts "Random Gold: #{TIME_WAIT - @time}"
    if @time >= TIME_WAIT
      gold = rand(GOLD_MAX) + GOLD_MIN
      client = rand($clients.size)
      $client[client].send("EVA$game_party.gain_gold(#{gold})")
      @time = 0
    end
end
#------------------------------------------------------------------
# Handles updating from a client.
# client - Client instance (from Client.rb)
# Returns: Whether to stop check the message or not.
#------------------------------------------------------------------
def self.client_update(client)
# - YOUR CLIENT MESSAGE CODE HERE
return false
end

end


But it doesn't seem to be updating. I waited ten seconds and then it should've chosen a random client to give gold to. I can't say for sure it is actually updating or If I'm doing something wrong. But I've waited several seconds and I didn't get any gold.

YES it fixed it! Here's what the server does. It counts down from X seconds. (Will be minutes) Then when it reaches TIME_WAIT it gives a random client a random amount of gold. In the server itself, it out puts this.
p "Time Left Til Gold: #{TIME_WAIT - @time}"


When it prints 0, it means @time is at TIME_WAIT, @time is set to 0 after it gives the gold, however it doesn't start counting down again and on top of that it doesn't print the client's name who got the gold.

Here's my new script.

Again, it works only one time. Then its like it stops updating. I set the time wait to 10 seconds. Sat there for 10, got 227 gold, then sat for another 10 and I didn't get anything. And the message wasn't getting printed either.  D:

Small update if you dont mind .__.

Random Gold makes sure that no player gets gold randomly twice in a row.
Got all wanted features built in. Except one (keep reading, maybe you can help me)
-Set Wait Time in seconds before gifting gold
-Set gold minimum and maximum
-Set log gold messages
-Never picks same person twice
-Set error messages to what you want

Feature I wanted.
-When client gets the gold, I want a message to appear in the chatbox. I only want him to see it, is it possible?

This here would be a full fletched extension making use of the skeleton and RMX-OS as system.

module RMXOS

def self.load_current_extension
return Goldy
end

module Data
PlayerGotLucky = 'You got lucky! You won AMOUNT gold from the server!'
GoldyGotLucky = '\'PLAYER\' got \'AMOUNT\' gold.'

DELETE_LOG_ON_START = true
WAIT_TIME = 30
MIN_GOLD = 1000
MAX_GOLD = 10000
# END Configuration

def self.initialize
@lucky_user_ids = []
end
 
def self.main
while RMXOS.server.running
self.server_update
sleep(WAIT_TIME)
end
end

def self.server_update
logged_in_clients = $clients.find_all {|client| client.player.user_id > 0}
unlucky_clients = logged_in_clients.find_all {|client| !@lucky_user_ids.include?(client.player.user_id)}
if unlucky_clients.size > 0
client = unlucky_clients[rand(unlucky_clients.size)]
@lucky_user_ids.push(client.player.user_id)
gold = rand(MAX_GOLD - MIN_GOLD + 1) + MIN_GOLD
client.send("EVA$game_party.gain_gold(#{gold})")
message = RMXOS::Data::PlayerGotLucky.sub('AMOUNT') {gold.to_s}
color = RMXOS::Data::ColorOK
client.send("CHT#{color}\t0\t#{message}")
message = RMXOS::Data::GoldyGotLucky.sub('PLAYER', client.player.username).sub('AMOUNT', gold.to_s)
self.log(message)
end
end

def self.client_update(client)
return false
end

def self.log(message)
puts message if SERVER_DISPLAY
if LOG_FILENAME != ''
file = File.open(LOG_FILENAME, 'a')
file.write(message + "\n")
file.close
end
end

end


You realize, though, that this is generally a stupid idea? (I saw that you posted a topic.) Each time the server crashes, the queue would be emptied and everybody could get gold again.

If i play the original project, it start, connect, and i can play, but if i modify anything in the client project i cant connect couse he say "server offline" in the login screen of the game.
I try to add a object, add only a tree, delete the "option script" and paste the original, but all time i modify 1 thing on the client project he say "offline".
Why, there are any solution?

Look, if the server is RUNNING and you DO NOT see it online from a remote client, it's 100% a network problem or you haven't set up the configuration properly (which technically causes a network problem). The server is RUNNING, it is NOT a script problem. The only two possibilities left are that you have not configured the server or the client properly or that your network is not set up properly.

NO, all configuration is ok, the server run fine, i can see it online and play 10000 time if i dont modify the project, i'm not stupid.
It isn't work only if i modify the project, such as add a tree, add a chara, an event, a new object, i save, close, and when i run i cant see the server online whit the client game, but the server IS online, no network problem, cause before the modify it works fine!
I can play but only whit the original client game, i dont modify script, i reinstall the server 5 time, but all time work only whit original, if i modify anithing in the project, cant see the server online.

EDIT : I try to run the server and play the original client (work fine), and the modify client game (i add a map, dont work).

Let me explain this to you again the hard way.

An IP address is a virtual address of a PC on a network. In a completely open network every PC can "see" all the other PCs by sending a message saying "Hi. I am X.X.X.X. Who else is there?" (called a broadcast in networking). Then each PC who received the message will reply to X.X.X.X with "Hello. I am Y.Y.Y.Y.". Completely open networks usually don't exist because they are highly insecure so people use firewalls (which you can literally imagine as walls that don't let anything through) and network configurations that tell the PC how to behave in certain situations and how to respond. You can easily configure your PC not to reply to another PC when it asks who else is in the network. The other PC won't even know your PC is there. Sometimes even firewalls block the calls and your PC virtually never receives the broadcast message. It is even possible that the PC who sent the broadcast in the first place was configured that it doesn't receive any replies from other PCs so it thinks that it's alone in the network.

When you have a server running, there are 2 things that are important. The first is the server IP address and port. The server needs to know where he is located in order to be able to receive. The second is the client's information about the IP address and port of the server. In other words, it needs to know the server's location in the network. Naturally if you run your server on 192.168.0.2:5000 and tell your client to connect to 192.168.0.3:5000, it won't work. Neither will 192.168.0.2:5001. Only AND ONLY 192.168.0.2:5000 will work. The client HAS TO connect to 192.168.0.2:5000 or else the server will not be visible to the client. On top if your server is not configured to answer to broadcast messages (or even direct connections to the IP address) or a router is not configured to forward a connection to a port on your PC, the client will not be able to see the server online either. The server does not answer, because either it was configured not to answer or somebody in between in the network (e.g. a router) doesn't forward answers (because it was not configured properly).

I've shown by now you what the problems are altogether three times (including this post) and you still refuse to follow my advice. On top you are being a dick after I've explained to you what your problem is and what you need to do. If you're so much smarter, go ahead. Figure it out your yourself. I, personally, won't give you any more support.

Yes you explane me 3 times, but you dont read my problem omg or else?
I made a server, configured 127.0.0.1:54269, i dont have any firewall turned on, no router, and i can login in the server whit other programs (such online database editing, online mysql monitor), but CANT whit a MODIFIED PROJECT.
I repeat that, i'm not stupid and i know what is IP, what is TCP, router, firewall, port etc...
But i say your script run really good, but only whit the unmodified project, like this :
-Download
-Extract
-Run the server
-Run client
This run whit no problems, but this:
-Download
-Extract
-Add a map on the game (only a map, or a tree in a existing map)
-Run server
-Run client
This will not work, and the client see the server offline, for the 4th time, i dont modify the script, the IP and the port are correctly setted and work, havent firewall and router, try to help me and stop saying it is a network problem, couse it isn't.
You are the only one can help me, no one can find the problem.

Post by: Blizzard on May 24, 2010, 03:44:22 pm
You don't have to restart the server each time.
There is no reason for it not to work when you change something in the game. I don't know what you are doing wrong.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Juan on May 24, 2010, 04:52:03 pm
Did you modify the cfg.ini for the server and if it matches the server your trying to connect to?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: achille911 on May 25, 2010, 05:09:12 am
Yep, i try to restart the server after modify, to leave it open, but all time the client see it offline, me too can't find the problem, i reinstall the server 4 times, read the manual, but the problem are all time the game, the cfg.ini is ok, match perfectly whit the game option script.
Have a question, when i modify the client game, i must modify some in the server to match whit a new map, new chara or some else? I don't think the server must be modified when u edit the game.
I try different version of RMX-OS, same problem, work whit original, dont work with the custom game.
Thanks for help, and sorry for my replies before, but i try to make work this by 2 days.

Again sorry if i have bad english.

Post by: Blizzard on May 25, 2010, 06:49:55 am
It is a server, it has nothing to do with the game. Nobody else so far had that problem, and frankly, the problem is technically impossible. The maps affect in absolutely no way the server or the connection data from the client.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: achille911 on May 25, 2010, 09:07:00 am
Yes, i know that, but all time i made a modify, won't work, i don't know why, but don't work.
I know modify the game dont modify in any way the script, the server or the connection, but when i'm going to do this, he won't work.
There are a solution sure, but i can't found it, i try 1000 time, modify the server, reinstall, change the host, but no way to correct this problem, is possible that i have a older or too newer version of rpg maker xp, and modify whit a wrong version cause this bug?

Edit : Yeah i found the solution, lol.
I modify the game whit rpg maker english version (before i use the italian version) and it work perfectly!
Thanks to all for the support, now i can play whit this fantastic script!

Are you getting any error messages on the server? If not, then it's a network problem. It can be just the firewall messing with you or god knows what complicated problem.

Hello all

I've been trying your script (looks awsome from what i read), i installed every thing on your manual, read it some 3 or 4 times, configured the INI file using the GUI, then modified it manualy, and etc, from this side of the screen, i think I did all i'm suposed to, but when i launch the server, it goes 'Running' and immedialy (not even 1 sec) it goes down, i got all firewalls off, got router unpllugged (18+Mb cable connection direct plugged) and continues same thing

the actual .ini i'm using (after trying add the manual commands the GUI dont create) is this:

Spoiler: ShowHide

NAME = 'TESTE'
HOST = 'localhost'
PORT = 54269
RMXOS_VERSION = 1.14

LOG_MESSAGES = true
LOG_ERRORS = true
LOG_ACTIONS = true

DEBUG_MODE = true

MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS = 50
LOGIN_TIMEOUT = 30
AUTO_RESTART = false
RESTART_TIME = 5

PREVENT_ZOMBIE_CLIENTS = true

OPTIMIZE_DATABASE_ON_STARTUP = true
DATABASE_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT = 60

SQL_HOSTNAME = 'localhost'
SQL_USERNAME = 'root'
SQL_PASSWORD = 'testing'
SQL_DATABASE = 'rmxosdb'

INBOX_SIZE = 10

EXTENSIONS = [
''
]


i'm using your latest version (found on 1st post of this topic), have the latest MySQL 5x+, created database using a SQL Manager Lite something (shareware) then installed WAMP (as suggested on page 34+ of this topic) and launchhed phpMyAdmon wich can access the database (after i add the password on the config_inc.php)

i used the PFPPortChecker.exe to check the ports (as suggested on page 20+) and the 54269 is open

on the GUI .exe i 'test' the database and it says is working, but as i said, when i click 'Run Server' it blinks runing and goes off immedialy


I imagine you be tired of many posts about people getting this issue, but  i googled, i read all the posts of this topic and even did a Search on this forum, but couldn't find the sollution, since it just dont launch, and i never had problems in host servers, so any ideas?

thank you.

this why i'm having dificulties find a sollution, if i could get server to run and get some error message would be easier to solve, but right now, i dont get anay errors, it just dont boot, and all the 'checks' i do it seems be properly set...

I haven't used RMX-OS for a while, but try running the server without the GUI tool and see if that helps at all. If I remember correctly, the GUI was built for an older version of RMX-OS and may no longer be completely compatible.

Hi,

I have two problems with the RMX-OS Script. I use the latest Version. My English is not good, so i have created a small video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHd5hgGzHrs

problem 1:
the game lags when another player connect and move around.

problem 2:
when Player 1 go to another map. player 2 is shown at the other map too.

can anyone help me?

Post by: Blizzard on July 04, 2010, 04:16:39 pm
These problems cannot happen with the current version except if you are running it with Blizz-ABS in which case the bugs were reported weeks ago already. And I can't get to find the cause and fix it because it's impossible to track down the bug with one PC connected to the server.

As for the lag, make sure the network connection speed is adequate. You can't expect a server to run smoothly on a modem or ISDN connection.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: luchs on July 04, 2010, 05:02:13 pm
okay...

i use it with blizz-abs.

network-connection is over vdsl (20Mbit/s). the server has a 100Mbit/s uplink.

rly strange... i will check it without blizz-abs.

Thanks for help!

Yep. Hasn't changed anything. The problem is, probably, that somehow this line don't work.
if EXTENSIONS.size > 0

I'm quite new to RUBY, so: where the heck is the value of EXTENSIONS.size coming from?

Eh, you shouldn't edit the code of RMX-OS. That condition checks whether there are extensions so it can skip extension initialization and hence speed up the start up a but if there are not extensions.

You know, I've already figured that out - maybe I'm not an RGSS god like you, but that's not the first language I'm facing.
New error code.

I've skipped the previous error just by adding an extension (Blizz-ABS one, in this place I'd like to give you one more hail from your humble worshipers).
Once again: I didn't change a thing. What is the problem anyway?

EDIT: SOLUTION!
Dudenextdoor, I bet that's your problem, too. In the first case, the guilty is the default GUI setting, which is
EXTENSIONS = [
''
]

while it should be
EXTENSIONS = [
]

The second error is caused by the lack of this line in cfg.ini, most probably it's GUI's fault again:
DEBUG_MODE = false


And that's it. Thank you Blizzard for wasting your precious time ;)

I didn't know you had coding experience. But it's better to report a bug rather than trying to fix it on your own since even though you may be a programmer, you don't know the system as such. Hack-fixes will only hurt you in the long run or even break other things in the short run.
I'm glad you got it working anyway.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: [Luke] on July 07, 2010, 06:08:01 am
Is that a bug or does RMXOS not save the player position? Whenever I log on, my character appears in the [1,1] position on the current map and as I checked, there is no row in the database in save_data that runs that.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 07, 2010, 06:10:12 am
Since you have edited the save data (as I saw in the other topic), you can't expect it to work. Told you that you shouldn't fix the system with hacks but first attempt to set it up properly.

Blizzie, you're gonna love this: I've just wrote down an twenty-line log of what I've done to ask you what else I should have done with those errors, and I stopped on this one:
QuoteThen, because I'm not an idiot, I've inserted all the ABS scripts UNCHANGED and ABOVE the RMXOS ones.

When I've read this, I fell on the floor laughing :D Looks I'm an idiot anyway :P

I would feel extremely uncomfortable and being nothing but pain in the ass now if I hadn't helped that "dudenextdoor" guy with config.ini. I feel like an idiot anyway, for wasting your precious time and misreading The Script Order despite reading it 4 times :D


PS. How to make sure that ABS controls [WSAD, ZXC] will be overwritten by typing, anyway?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 07, 2010, 09:34:47 am
Meh, it's alright. We all make mistakes.

The Blizz-ABS Controller will handle the typing problem. I didn't have time to implement it yet.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: [Luke] on July 07, 2010, 04:06:16 pm
Supposing you have more time for the Blizz-ABS Controller, would you consider adding the mouse? Well, just "adding" is something that even I could do, but what I mean is: moving at the mouse move (well, not that neccessary, and there are some scripts for that), clicking at the F5-chatbox, hotkeys and menu (the same - possible to do basing on existing scripts), and, what is beyond my scripting imagination, using mouse in the combat - at least as a target-select pointer (that would solve the online problem with the "Homing" and "Direct" skills and probably could change the AoE of Bow weapon category). But that would be an awesome plugin for Blizz-ABS itself, which I've heard you've retired from. So please call your padawans and tell them "hey, there's some n00b suggesting us making the Blizz-ABS looking like some outstanding WoW shit, go and slap him in the face 'cuz he's annoying... and start implementing that stuff if you can".

At the moment I'm working on a HUD and my game's skilltree database, but when I'm done I'll try to make an open-PVP plugin. Consisting not only open PVP on selected maps, which will be quite easy, but also "factions" of players and NPCs on those battlegrounds, which will probably beat me and my loosy Ruby scripting skills.

I gave my friend the client to test the game to see if it would connect to my IP(Which I made static) He says it says offline. I can't figure out why it won't let him connect. In a older version of RMX-OS it would Say "Script Hanging" But it doesn't do that anymore. Can anyone help?

How do I remove the password encryption for the game? I want to connect it to my websites db, but when I sign up on my website and try to log on to game it says wrong password. Or can I make it so the password is MD5 encrypted? That would be more preferable.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 16, 2010, 03:58:25 pm
You can alter the code if you want another password encryption. You can't turn it off. I mean you can by just editing that same piece of code, but that is really not a good idea.
As I said, you can simply implement your own encryption. Make sure to update the table users to allow more than 11 characters as password hash.

Starting a new game means you need to register a new account. If you change the scripts in the game (such as adding or removing Blizz-ABS) and use an older account, you WILL get unexpected behavior such as coordinate offset.

I've said this more than once and i'll say it again, if the Gui can't find the database the server won't, YOUR CFG IS WRONG, you have to point it to the correct ip, correct database AND use the right username and password. if you do all that, it will work, no exceptions.

also, just to let you know, if your having problems with the gui this is not the topic, the gui is developed independently and problems with it should be reported in the gui's topic. similarly problems with RMX-OS should be reported here

The default configuration regarding the database is pretty much all you need. You only need to set up the username and password to be able to connect to the database.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 26, 2010, 03:46:18 pm
There are a lot of things wrong there (order is not one of them xD).

1. When you use Versioning, make sure that the version specified in the server extension AND in the client plugin match. By default both should be on version 1.

2. Continuous Maps does not work with RMX-OS (and it never will). In fact it's buggy right even without RMX-OS, I didn't have time to fix it yet. When you fix the version bug, the game will either automatically crash or start behaving weird before it crashes. It might not crash, but it will definitely not work with RMX-OS.

3. You don't need DREAM when using RMX-OS. The save data is on the server anyway.

4. Achievements will probably not work as it uses a local file for that.

5. Make sure your additional scripts have additional configuration for save data for RMX-OS or configure it yourself (such as Weapon Training, etc.).
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: ojp2010 on August 26, 2010, 04:09:33 pm
I went ahead and removed versioning for now since I don't even have the game runnning or created yet. I removed a few other scripts that weren't setup for RMX-OS, deal with them later. Now I can load the game log in, make account, etc. once I login to my user name the game goes to a screen the shows the loading background and the word loading, game just sits there. I've been letting it sit, but has done anything. What did I do lol?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 26, 2010, 05:03:37 pm
Consider the database as your save data. If you add or remove scripts, the ones that say that they will corrupt save data will corrupt your database and you need to empty it. You could say that the save data from the accounts that were created before you removed the scripts aren't compatible with the game anymore. It will either stay in the loading screen or it will enter the game but behave in a weird way immediately or later and probably cause a crash eventually.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: ojp2010 on August 26, 2010, 05:12:49 pm
I deleted the whole database and recreated it and still have the same problem.

Edit:

Steps I took;

1. Downloads RMX-OS/My SQL/Navicat Lite

2.Use manual to install/setup:RMX-OS and My SQL

3. Run test/log into game/create new account

4. Download additional scripts/added them to client game

5. Deleted database/Created new database

This is where I am now. I can't get the client game after logging in to go past a screen the saying loading....

I am sure it is a simple fix, I hope, I did delete the database in case of save data corruption.

This is what I have running on my desktop

Could it have to do with the extensions? I installed them by opening notepad copy&past then save as filename.rb. I was looking in the manual and I don't think that is the correct way to do it, but I can't open the ExtensionSkeleton in rudy or other program to "install" them that way. Could that be my problem?

actually you created the files correctly by that is not the problem... the loading screen means that it is retrieving you save data from the server is it if gets stuck there that means that it is not receiving data...


What should I do to fix that? I cleared out the database and even tried to make a new user name and log in and it was still doing the same thing. So do I need to reinstall My SQL or something?

your could try restarting the server, but other than that there is no fix.

I've restarted it a few times. That seems to be a rather large hole it the functionally of the system. I can use a unchange version, without added scripts, and it will connect and load fine. So does it have something to do with the added scripts? I have them all in the right order and they all seem to be functioning right. Do I need extensions for all of the added scripts? They are all made by blizzard and most of them are either designed for RMX-OS or have an extension for it.  

edit: I fixed the problem everything works just fine now. It was the global switches and variables script, once I removed it I had no more problems. Not sure why it was causing it.

*edit: How can I make it that the chat box is on the top of the screen instead of the bottom?

**edit: I am using One-Man CMS everything is working just find, but the players name plate is still shown through the CMS. How can I change that to where it doesn't show through?

The Global Switches and Variables server extension intercepts the initial loading sequence and doesn't let it finish until the switch and variable data is sent back to the client. The client plugin expects the extension to send data and doesn't finish the loading until it gets the data. That's why it kept freezing.

To fix the graphic bug, try increasing the Z coordinates of the windows in the CMS.

Alright I get it now, the more I think about it I don't know if I had the Extension for the Global switch and variable in the extensions folder or not, prolly why is wasn't working. Anyways, thanks for the help with the CMS I will try when I get home from work today to see if I can get it to work. Also is there a way to get the chat box to be on the top left hand side of the screen instead of the bottom left? I have the HUD at the bottom and it sort looking odds when you first load into the game that they are overlaping. Thank you again.

Is there a way to disable other direct keys when typing is on. To better explain would be I am using direct hotkeys to call scene, I have a help screen 'H' calls the scene. When I press 'F6' and start typing if I press 'H' it calls the help scene. So I am wanting that once you hit F6 all controls disable so that you can type without calling scenes.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

The next version of the Blizz-ABS Controller will have that problem fixed.

@Trider250: I think that takes away the fun in the game. I played once an MMO a few years ago and it was fun to dress up with noob equipment and kill off PKers when they attacked me or the noobs around me that were grinding EXP. In fact it was hilarious. I couldn't have done that if my level was displayed above my head all the time. D:

Okay, I'm trying to make a plugin for Scene_Waypoints script...
#==============================================================================
#   Diablo 2 Waypoints
#   by arevulopapo

#
#   To call the Waypoint scene use the "Call script" event command:

#   where 'parameter' is the index of the waypoint you're using.

    end
  end
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------
end


Script works fine, nut doesn;t save visited waypoints.
The variable which saves visited waypoints is $game_system.waypoints_active, so I thought it will be enough to make this plugin for RMX-OS:
module RMXOS
  module Options
    SAVE_DATA[Game_System].push('@waypoints_active')
  end
end

Of course the plugin is BELOW RMX-OS script.
Unfortunately, it raises an error whenever I call Scene_Waypoint...
Script 'Waypoints'line 107: NoMethodError occured.
undefined method 'include?' for nil:NilClass

Looks like I screwed something up.

Consider the database as your save data. If you add or remove scripts, the ones that say that they will corrupt save data will corrupt your database and you need to empty it. You could say that the save data from the accounts that were created before you removed the scripts aren't compatible with the game anymore. It will either stay in the loading screen or it will enter the game but behave in a weird way immediately or later and probably cause a crash eventually.

Look, you'll have to figure this one out on your own. There's lots of things involved and I can't really see anything that is right with that extension. For beginners, there are no variables @players or @map_players or @user_name for that matter. I don't even know why this hasn't crashed your server yet. The extension probably died during runtime without you even noticing.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Ah, alright. I thought that one was serverside.

You should be able to send that message. Turn on message logging on the server and check if the message arrived. If you sent it, it WILL arrive (unless the connection breaks down). So if the message is not arriving on the server, the error is somewhere else. Probably that Network::send you used is never called.

Hey Blizz, look what I found! http://lthzelda.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/rm-4-tcp-sockets-in-rpg-maker-vx/ (http://lthzelda.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/rm-4-tcp-sockets-in-rpg-maker-vx/)
they guy used code from RMX-OS to do something similar in VX, however he managed to get the server on the client side threaded and thread safe via a Mutex block.
its in the "Game Prototype 2: An Online Community" section
might want to check it out.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on September 14, 2010, 04:33:04 pm
I took a quick look at it. I'm not sure if VX can use threads properly, but unless it uses Ruby 1.9.x, it can't. The threads are not real threads and hence one shouldn't bother with synchronization since everything is running sequentially anyway. He might as well use a normal sequential code. The other main reason why I didn't do it is because WinAPI calls are always blocking. They can't be non-blocking. And even if you use virtual-threaded Ruby code, it will freeze in the whole application when it comes across an API call.
I am going to make the data exchange system a bit better and more generic so it's easier to add additional data. I'm having in mind the same subsystem that I used in the Blizz-ABS Controller. The interest algorithms for data exchange he is mentioning can heavily improve performance. Currently the only actual interest areas are maps. But that can be changed. It will increase server load, but it should decrease network load.

As for the rest, by all means, if he can reuse more RMX-OS code, he should. I tried to design specific aspects generically so the very core of RMX-OS can be easily transferred onto VX (pretty much the Network class and everything inside module RMXOS).

He's got a lot figured out already after all. Even why I used tab characters as parameter delimiters in the network communication protocol. xD

An interesting remark I have noticed is the socket code coming from Ruby 1.8.1. Honestly, that's the same way I found it. I couldn't find the original in Ruby 1.8.1 either. O_o

EDIT: Yay, I posted a comment. xD As soon as the moderation staff approves of the comment, you should be able to see it.

Edit: it would be nice if someone cooked up a script in which someone could load their game within the game. Much like the "save game" feature, but instead, you're loading the game. A call script for this would be nice.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on October 06, 2010, 02:38:18 pm
I am using raw byte data in form of a string to transmit the message. On the client you can simply use this:

$network.send_chat_message(message, color)


This will automatically translate it into a format that the server and other clients can read.
On the server you have to use something else.

client.send("CHT\xFF\x7F\x00\t0\tThis is a message")


This one would send the message "This is a message" from the server (hence ID 0 after the first tab character) in an orange color (FF7F00 color code encoded with \xFF\x7F\x00 into the string).

Okay, I have a slight problem here. I updated one of my clients  recently and now, he's unable to log in: even though his account still exists in the database. Is there anyway I could recover his account? Maybe there should be a script that goes with the "user logging" system that documents both username and password

the GUI can change passwords. also before the password leaves the client it is always hashed and can't be recovered, you can only change it

Hey Blizz, I know you're retired, but I think I found a glitch.
When you send a global message, everyone will get it, but instead of saying your username first, it only says ': mymessagehere' and no name. However, if you send a global message while you are on the same map as the other person it will show your name and even if you change maps from that point on it will show their name....

its because the client cant find a reference to the client id that sent the chat message, I tried to get around it in my rewrite of the chat system by sending that name along with the message but it still failed some times.

one of these days I'm planning to write a channeled chat system plugin and overhaul the entire system

I would just like to know where the creation of the window would be. I thought it would be like the hud, where it just displays a color.
I would like to know where/how the window is created, and how to get rid of it without removing the chat functions. Basically I want the chat on the map so I can put a picture underneath it to replace it.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Wizered67 on December 05, 2010, 02:03:49 am
I can't really help you, but I can point you in the right direction. If you look, you will see that the chatbox is based off of FrameChat. You may also notice that this is based off of Frame. From there I noticed a method called create_backround_sprite. You try to take it from there, that's as far as I can go.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: ForeverZer0 on December 05, 2010, 02:15:17 am
Place this under "RMX-OS (Script)", or at the end of it.

class Frame

  def create_background_bitmap
    @background.bitmap = Bitmap.new(FILENAME_OF_YOUR_PIC)
  end
end


If you have the pic in your pictures folder, set the filename as:
RPG::Cache.picture('FILENAME')

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 05, 2010, 04:01:23 am
OH SNAP! i retract my previous statement as I completely forgot about that

also note that doing what Zero0 said will change ALL frames to use that background picture so it would be best to do this


class Frame_Chat

  def create_background_bitmap
    @background.bitmap = RPG::Cache.picture('<FILENAME FOR MAIN CHAT WINDOW>')
  end
end

class Frame_ChatInput

  def create_background_bitmap
    @background.bitmap = RPG::Cache.picture('<FILENAME FOR CHAT INPUT WINDOW>')
  end
end



simply replace <FILENAME FOR CHAT INPUT WINDOW> and <FILENAME FOR MAIN CHAT WINDOW>  with the file name of the picture you wish to use in the images folder

Thank you for making this Blizzard, it's a really awesome script. I have a question though.

When I get two players connected, there's obviously a small lag spike, but the main issue I have is that the other player looks like they're jumping around from space to space and you can't really see them walking(it looks like they're lagging). However, my character is running fine. From the other player's perspective it looks like I'm lagging and they're running fine.

So, i'm wondering if this has to do with my server machine, which is currently running off a windows xp desktop with nothing else running on it. Or if this is just one of the unavoidable things that happens to everyone no matter how the server machine is set up.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 08, 2010, 11:23:56 pm
this is a side effect of the client server modal and can't be "fixed" per say as it isn't a bug.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 09, 2010, 03:41:27 am
As Ryex said, this is one of the disadvantages of client-server architectures. There are sophisticated methods of interpolation between data to allow smoother (even though actually inaccurate) transitions. But this kind of calculation is usually difficulty to implement or requires additional CPU power. The normal way of players just "jumping" to another position is significantly less CPU intense for both client and server.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on December 09, 2010, 12:25:17 pm
the one way I could think to fix it wold be to have the server handle every ones movement and report positions to players instead of having the players handle movement and report their positions to the server.  this will of course put more load on the server.  and even though the movement would be smother it would also be inacurite as the position shown by the clients would often not be the players true position. I think it works just fine the way it is.

But then I went to log in with the same user name and password and I got the same error.This is what comes up in the error log:

But, seeing as I'm such a noob at this, as the name suggests, I can't even tell if it would work. Could someone please look at 000webhost.com's free plan and tell me if it would do all the things that are needed to successfully make an MMORPG? Thanks! :)

EDIT:
A second quesiton: I've got two popular games on the internet that have 200ish-1000+ ppl playing them. They are made with default RMXP. If I were to make RMX-OS versions of both of these games, would there be a way/script to allow people that previously played non MMO versions be able to keep there old save data, or would they have to start over in the RMX-OS version?

the answer for both of your questions is no. 000webhost will not work for hosting the ruby server, and there is no way for you to really import save data like that. on another note why in the world would you want to may a previously single player game into a MMO? it wouldn't work.

The bottom of my script database looks like this, in order of highest to lowest: RMX-OS Options, RMX-OS Script, RMX-OS Main, Blizz-ABS 1, Blizz-ABS 2, Blizz-ABS 3, RMX-OX Versioning, RMX-OS Blizz-ABS Plug-in. When I login, I can walk around, but I have some major problems: if I run my chatbox activation script, I become unable to move, even when I run my chatbox deactivation script. All the BLizz-ABS controls are disabled, even though I set them as enabled. My select key has become enter, and my menu key is esc., but it doesn't bring up the Blizz-ABS menu. When I try setting the HUD, nothing happens. When I run a script to turn on Blizz-ABS controls, I get a gigantic error log and the program fails. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!?!?!? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Did you actually set up the game controls properly? Did you configure Blizz-ABS properly? Have you made sure that you have wiped the database before/after you added Blizz-ABS? If it's not working, then you have made a mistake because by default everything works.

Before asking a question though, as innocuous as it may be, you should probably research as much as you can first. This could have been averted had you posted in the RMX-OS GUI thread, for instance. But what's done is done. Lesson learned for the future, all right?

Ryexander: Whoa, haven't seen you worked up like that. :< Anytime there's a Bug Reports or Support section, there's always going to be users who haven't researched fully enough (No offense mroedesigns xD). I would know, I check the osu! forums a lot and see really moronic questions of help. As "stupid" it may seem to you, at least take your tone from bitter to neutral or something. I know you're a nice guy, so yeah, please calm...

@mroedesigns: Yes, don't take Ryex personally. He's still in the phase where he can't yet deal with the frustration that people ask the same stupid question over and over. ._. Heck, even I get still get pissed off by that sometimes. Just recently somebody asked me about Blizz-ABS and since I have been retired for over 8 months now, I told them to go the forum. But the guy kept asking a few more times. At one point I pretty much answered very harshly. ._. Usually when I'm about to post shit, I usually just don't post anything and ignore the post.

As for the accounts, if I remember right, the GUI and the current RMX-OS version aren't compatible. In any case, try registering an account through the game to see if it works.

no actually they work, I upgraded the GUI in the last year to work with the latest RMX-OS and to have database capabilities, it can register users and change the ban state, password, and user group of existing users

That's what I was doing :/ The game says the server is online, but if I click register (or any of the buttons for that matter) it does nothing. I've tried both with my game and with the unedited client that comes with the package. I also tried manually putting user data in the MySQL tables but it gave me an incorrect username/password if I tried to use those.

I dunno what it could be
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on January 03, 2011, 05:24:58 am
manually putting data into the sql tables would't work as the passwords are hashed. you can use the GUI to register users but the game should work too.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 03, 2011, 05:30:41 am
Are you sure, you are doing it right? You are supposed to select Register to open the registration menu, then type in your username and password and finally select Submit. Then you should get a message on top that the server is being contacted about your registration. After a moment, it should transfer you into the game.

Please help. After an earlier post, Blizzard told me I might have made a mistake configuring something. Turns out I did. I went into configuration and saw I had forgotten to specify my extensions! I specified the Blizz-ABS extension for RMX-OS. I then had both things that were said to be required for Blizz ABS with RMX-OS: the script that I put in the game, and the plugin extension. I ran my game again, and triggered the event that runs the script to turn on Blizz-ABS. I got the exact same error as before. It says: undefined method: blizzabs= 'for#game system<(random numbers and letters), then it shows interpreter errors, Scene_Map errors, and RMX-OS errors in script and main. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

There are a lot of people who are willing to help you who are pretty good. None as far as I know are mind-readers, though. You gotta be a lttle more specific on what errors you are getting. The random numbers and letters are simply that. They are just the "address" of the instance that is throwing the error. They hold no relevance to how to solve your problem.

ok, heres what it said when I ran the script that was supposed to activate Blizz-ABS. I tried to run it just before an event transfered the character to a PvP map. This is the error message(I'm not including apostrephes to save time, because it wouldn't let me copy the error message nor would it let me upload the screenshot I took of it):

Also, I made server extensions for my blizz-abs and versioning, and I specified them both in configuration. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??  :wacko:

Post by: ForeverZer0 on January 04, 2011, 09:09:09 pm
For one reason or another (I'm not familiar with all the methods in BABS and RMX-OS), in event is using a script call with something like this:
$game_system.blizzabs = WHATEVER


Either the method is misspelled, not even a method, or you don't have an attr_accessor in Game_System for "blizzabs". Either way, the method/variable "blizzabs" is not defined in Game_System, or at the very least not accessible by an outside class.

Post by: Wizered67 on January 04, 2011, 09:14:23 pm
If I recall, this is caused by the versioning script for RMX-OS, but I can't remember why. Check your configuration and make sure it is correct.

My configuration is fine, as far as I can tell. I did CTRL + F in RMX-OS script and found the text that was displayed in the error message....any other ideas?

EDIT: It did involve the versioning script, and as an experiment i temporarily removed it. Now I get this error after I hit login:

In an aliased method of main, a nil element (something not defined) is attempting to use a comparison method, most likely to a number.

Have you tried the manual? Following the directions EXACTLY? Those are things that need to be done.
Blizzard is retired, in case the bright red bold text in his sig that has been there for many months did not give you a clue.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 04, 2011, 11:01:01 pm
yes(i suppose i could hav screwed up the babs+rmxos one...all u hav 2 do is make the .rb xtension, specify it in config, and add the script above main, rite?), and im sure i followed the rmx-os instructions correctly. i think i followed the blizz-abs 1s right also. i think my only other option now is 2 delete my blizz abs scripts and put the default things in. bilzz told me if i had everything at default and my config was right,it would work. so im assuming tht since my config is correct, and the only things i changed in rmxos was the server display name and the ip adress, the problem must be in blizzabs. if default babs with 99.999999999% default rmxos fails....:,(
one other thing (im assuming this problem is still there, althoguh currently i cant get past the load screen due 2 errors i described in earlier posts), when i turn on chatbox my character freezes and cant walk. when i turn it off again he remains like that and i hav 2 hit F12.

Noob: Could you tell me the name of the server? I have problems with my router (even though I've set up port configuration properly, it still doesn't work) and I'm seeking for another options.

To anybody who's using router: Should it be enough to set up the port 54269 forwarding to my laptop? It works for port 80 - I've set this port and typing my router's IP into a browser, you can see the proper webpage (I'm using WebServ) but setting same thing for port 54269 (default configuration) doesn't make my server visible for the client.

I'd say try it out on your own machine locally before attempting to test it globally with another site, so that you can be sure your game is working. Once you've got that worked out, just make sure that you have the IP Adress and port correct. If you're using a server hosting website, their ruby port is sometimes different than the defualt RMX-OS one and you need to chagne it.
Other suggestions:
-Make sure you uploaded all the necessary files to the server host.
-Make sure you ran the mySQL query and configured the instance properly.
-Make sure you ran the server.

I've encountered another problem  :???:. After registering for a free server hosting site (www.vlexofree.com) with Ruby on Rails and mySQL database, I successfully configured everything, and actually got the game to say the server was online. However, when I try to enter the server to play, I get a message saying that the server did not respond. I looked in FAQs and it said I would have to allow Ruby on my firewall. So I modified the OS firewall to allow ruby TCP/UDP communications with the server at the specified server port. I'm not sure how to modify my NAT. What protocol does the server use to communicate with the client? Am I making any errors that you can tell? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

There's a section in the script where you can specify the name, host and port.

SERVERS.push(['NAME', 'HOST', PORT])


And as the manual says:

Quote from: Blizzard's blood and sweatServers are defined by 3 parameters: NAME, HOST and PORT. NAME is the name that will be displayed during connection. HOST is either an IP address or an URL. PORT is a number between 0 and 65535. RMX-OS default port is 54269 and you should keep using it except if you want to run multiple servers on one computer at once. For more information about ports, look it up on the internet.


You're free to use another port, but 54269 was probably chosen for a reason. That saying, if you wanted a different port number, make sure it doesn't conflict with other important programs. For example, the port for IRC would be 6667. You don't want to be using that port for RMX-OS, methinks.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on January 12, 2011, 12:33:13 am
no reason other than it is an obscure port and thus free for use.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 12, 2011, 02:58:51 am
The ACTUAL reason is actually 3 reasons.

1. Ports over 50000 are rarely used, often free (what Ryex already said).

2. 42 because it's the answer to life, the universe and everything.

3. 69 because it's a sex position.

=> 54269
<3

Remexos uses 56969, because it's the double amount of 69.
54269 is also a secret message meaning "Nobody is aware of this (port over 50000), but the meaning of life (42) is to survive and reproduce (69)."
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 12, 2011, 05:03:04 pm
But using a different port wouldn't mess anything up as long as it's not taken by another program, right?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Ryex on January 12, 2011, 06:07:08 pm
correct, but really there is no reason to change that port other than if it is already in use. ie your running two servers on the same computer one of themm will have to use a different port

Hey, I'm using vlexofree.com to server as a server host for my server. It supports Ruby on Rails, but I couldn't even get the server to start with that so instead I used a cron job to find the actual Ruby program (NOT rails) and run it with that. For some reason or another (it may be on a linux machine >.<) the ./ filepath would generate lots of errors, so any time I found the ./ path, I had to change it to the full path.
Example:
load '~/RMX-OS_Server/Data/Action.rb'

Rather than:
load './Data/Action.rb'


Also, no matter what I did for the mysql.so file, it continued to give errors, so I had to modify the server to load ruby gems. The beginning of the script now looked like this:
# loading Ruby's libraries
require 'socket'
## loads RubyGems (needed to load mysql?)
require 'rubygems'
# loading external libraries
require 'mysql'

After applying this modification, and the other one I mentioned with the filepath, I ran the server. I got no feedback whatsoever. Also, when I tried to connect it told me that the server was offline. When I put a filepath back to ./ as an experiement, it began giving feedback again, error feedback.
At one point, this appeared in the feedback:

==========================================================================
RMX-OS Server v1.15
==========================================================================
Loading extensions...

But that was all. It appeared to have stopped after it ftried loading the extension, which was still at the ./ path. I changed it and......nothing. please help.

also, along with my previous question, i have another simpler one. is the mysql.so file in the server folder a generic one, or a specially edited rmxos one? and could it be used with a linux? (you'll see above that i instead used the generic LINUX mysql file, not the rmxos one. was this incorrect? if so, how could i make it work with linux, which was giving errors when i left it as the mysql.so file in the server folder.)
please anwswer this, and if you can, the above question.
THANKS :)

Is there a way to put in a "Futendra production" Image for some seconds before the server choice comes up?

I want to make a picture like this:

"Demora Online

(Some logo)


Made by Futendra"

and I want that to show up right before the server screen

Hey Blizzard thanks for that link, but I have a small problem. The file at the link is designed for a 32bit computer, while the vlexofree.com servers are 64bit. Is there a 64bit version? Is there another change I could make instead? Anyone? Thanks! :)

is your sql server running?, is the configuration for the sql server right?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 25, 2011, 11:17:36 pm
My SQL configuration in the cfg. file was at 127.0.0.1. So I changed it to vlexofree.com's shared IP address, and it still didn't work. Do you think I just need to find out the IP address of vlexo's SQL server?

I take it you were running it on your computer and it worked but it stopped working when you moved the server to a host? then the answer is yes. you can usually find the IP in the mysql config section of Cpanel or whatever the host gives you for maintaining your site.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Wizered67 on January 25, 2011, 11:43:47 pm
I'm pretty sure you don't need to change the database ip if you're still hosting the data base.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 26, 2011, 02:27:22 am
Does your host allow remote SQL connections? If not, you won't be able to connect.
If you have the server running on a host on the database is also on that host, then you still have to use 127.0.0.1 as SQL host IP. After all, the database is on the same server where RMX-OS is executed.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 26, 2011, 04:31:27 pm
Okay, that could be problematic.....I asked about it on vlexo's support forums. Here's what I said:

My server program needs to locate the mySQL database I made on vlexo using either an IP adress of the machine the database is located on, or a URL that will re-direct to the database. What IP Adress or URL should I enter that will redirect it to my account's mySQL database? (I tried 127.0.0.1 and the shared IP 69.10.56.122). Any suggestions? Thanks! 

And here's what they replied:

All access to mysql must be done within the server. Access to it outside the server is blocked for security reasons.
If you want access to it within the server use "localhost".

So does that mean it won't work with vlexo? If so, would it work with a linux shell that includes mySQL and ruby?
If not (meaning it still might work with vlexo), then what am I doing wrong?
Thanks! :)

Well the error describes something being wrong with the IP Address rather than the port, and are you certain that even with the resctrictions I told you about it would still work. blizz said if there wasn't remote mySQL access permitted it wouldn't work. Isn't this saying that there isn't remote mySQL access permmitted?:

if your running the server on their server and try to access the mysql server there is no reason that it shouldn't work. if your running the server on your computer and trying to access their mysql server then that is NOT going to work. run the server on their shell and set the IP for the sql server to be the localhost. also make sure that the port for the sql server is right and if you still have errors either your an idiot or their shell service isn't going to work. not sure which would be preferable.

yes. the server dose all the database access, it would be stupid for the users to have access to the database. BTW I don;t think you've shared your specific error (or have you?) doing so will help in the event that your not setting things up right.

So I got my server up on vlexofree.com. I actually was in the game. a depressingly huge  amount of problems then arose. The problems include:
-Can't talk
-Can't fight Blizz-ABS battles
-If you exit the game window, you cant log back in unless you shut down the server and restart it.
-If you down the server and restart it, then try logging back in, your user data is not there and you have to start over.
-I'm thinking this means user data is not being saved or something..............
Are you all absolutely certain that the client doesn't have to communicate directly with the mySQL database?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 29, 2011, 02:27:57 pm
It looks to me that for some reason the network traffic into one direction is cut off. Since data never gets saved, I assume the server doesn't really get the info from the client. Were there any error messages on the server (there's a log file)?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 29, 2011, 04:06:05 pm
No error messages in the log, but I can give you a bit more information about the problem. I looked in the database, and found that the username and IP Address were logged. Also, when you talked no words appeared above your head, nor did they appear in the chatbox, even after refreshing it. Nor could this first account see other players. However, nothing was logged in the save_data part of the database, so in essence you have to start over every time you log in. So then I tried creating a new account. All data logging worked fine with it. I created three more new accounts, and everything worked fine with all of them. But when I went into a stage with Blizz-ABS enemies, they just stood there like normal events, but did have lifebars. And I could use attack skills on them, but the skills did nothing except show the animation and drain my SP.

So then I thought I might have accidentally screwed up blizzabs because, so I made a brand new database. Again, data logging was screwed up for the first account created, and again it worked perfectly for the second account. For the next three accounts it failed like the first one. And the blizzabs problem was not fixed.

So I went back to my original database, because in it I at least had the data logging working. To my surprise, blizzabs actually worked for a couple seconds when I went back. I tried a few regular attacks, and then i used a skill and all the enemies froze up and became un-damageable. So then I tried to talk. That didn't work anymore. Then I realized that datalogging also didn't work anymore, for any of the accounts. So I deleted that database and started with yet another new one. On this one datalogging never worked, nor did blizzabs.

Please help me fix this problem. If it's any help to you, I'm working with RMXOS v1.15, Blizz-ABS v2.79, and RMX-OS babs controller v1.1. With this exact setup I got the game to run perfectly when I ranu the server locally, off my PC. I know you may tell me to update my RMXOS and Blizz-ABS, and I would prefer not to do that unless it is actually necessary for solving the problem, rather than just to update.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 29, 2011, 04:21:52 pm
The old versions of those scripts were buggy already if you didn't know. That is, the Blizz-ABS Controller had a few problems.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 29, 2011, 04:24:27 pm
Okay............I'll update them then..........hopefully that solves it. Do you know why they'd be this buggy globally but work completely fine locally?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 29, 2011, 04:25:55 pm
They never worked fine locally in the first place. For some reason you didn't experience any problems and maybe you just went around them each time, but the controller script was never fully functional.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 30, 2011, 12:11:22 am
okay. i guess i may have just gotten lucky. are the server scripts mostly the same for rmxos 1.16?
because i had to do a couple of minor modifications to the rmxos.rb file to make it run un the unix machine. i think i showed them in an earlier post.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on January 30, 2011, 05:19:16 am
Yeah, the server scripts are mostly the same. Only the data exchange subsystem is different but apart from that there were no significant changes.
Sadly I don't have any experience with running RMX-OS on a Linux machine so you might be on your own. :/
Turn on message logging and try to connect with a client. You should also change the path for your logs (because of the ./ path error that you were having). I am curious whether the server freezes because of this like it used to on startup.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Noob on January 31, 2011, 06:58:58 pm
I never experienced it freezing....anyway, I updated the scripts, copying and pasting in all the new scripts except not the configuration parts because I already had configured them and I figured they wouldn't be any different in the new scripts. So i did that, and updated all the server scripts, and made sure to set up the extension and everything, I did NOT run the new mySQL query because I found everything to be the same. I got some lovely error about the host machine terminating my connection when I tried logging in. So I made a completely new account and got the same thing when I registered it. The messge in the error log looked like this:

EDIT: btw, this was when i tried it locally on my windows pc. i didnt delete my earlier database or anything. i just updated all the new scripts except the configuration parts of them, and when i logged in or when i registered my account, it displayed the starting map for a fraction of a second before giving a message telling about how the server had terminated connections. im fine with updating the configurations if need be. if this is unfixable, i guess i'll go back to the other versions and "debug." i almost had them fully working at 1 point. but if these work, i'll certainly use them. please help!! thanks :)

Post by: Blizzard on February 01, 2011, 02:29:31 am
In future, please don't double post. Use the "Modify" function instead.

You should try wiping the database anyway. It shouldn't have anything to do with it, but it might help solve the problem.
This problem actually shouldn't be happening, it doesn't make any sense. That's why I think it's odd. Pretty much nothing's unfixable, don't worry about that.

Also, the system still isn't logging all of the user data......
EDIT: Just to let you know, it logs IPs, users, and user data, but nothing else, whic makes gameplay kind of impossible.

Another EDIT: I went back to the blizz-abs controller v1.1. Now I can get the game to start, but again players cannot talk, and it's having wierd random save data errors. I'm assuming this is due to the abs controller being v1.1, so any advice on fixing my original error with 1.2 (above) so that I can return to the less glitchy 1.2 would be greatly appreciated. Also any advice on how to make the game write and read save data to/from the mySQL database would be extremely helpful, because the client just isn't doing it.

Yet Another EDIT: Just to let you know, there are a few other problems as well. The major ones that make it impossible for you to play the game are: the game appears to be unable to read save data, therefore, even if it did manage to write it, which it rarely does, it can't read it, so it doesn't matter. Also, enemies don't work. They just stand in a fixed position with the lifebar above their head. They can't attack you, you can't attack them. Also, if you exit the game window, then try logging back in, it says you're already logged in, therefore the only way to log back in is shut down the server and then try it. Obviously this wouldn't work. One final piece of information that I may have already mentioned: being able to talk, and being able to see other players appears to be directly linked to being able to wirte save data. If it's successfully writing the data, I can talk and see other players. If I can't do any one of those, I also can't do the other two. So......a few bugs. Please help.

EDIT: Okay, well blizzard, you reminded me about the zombie client option, and this has solved my problem with users not logging out correctly and also the problem with them not writing data, and the problem with them sometimes not talking. I've at least got that much working consistently. But a few new problems have appeared. I get this SyntaxError sometimes when during events that show text. It first occured during some of the default text that runs shortly after starting the game. It occured before all the text could be completed. If the user logs back in, they find themself in the middle of the event, and they get the error again. This only occured for some accounts. Here's what showed up in the error log:

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 03, 2011, 05:25:13 pm
Update both of them to be sure. At least the version constant has been updated in the client scripts and you need that one so plugins can detect the proper version. You don't have to update the options script (but you can remove '@anime_count' from the EXCHANGE_VARIABLES to make it run better if you want).

I had no problems with synchronization between clients. But then again, I wasn't able to test it fully active and only locally. Remember that you have to make sure your host works normally. Most of the errors you were getting seemed to me that your host doesn't allow proper communication between server and client. It's as if the server would sometimes cut off part of the client message.

It's the same problem I had earlier: they seem to count as enemies (appearing as enemies on the map, displaying lifebars, and allowing my character to use the hotkey-registered skills within range) but they don't move or attack, and my skills and regualr attacks do nothing to them, just use up my SP. any ideas on this strange problem?
EDIT: Here's some additional info on this problem for if you decide to pursue it: i got it to work once, but only once, globally. It works perfectly locally. the one time I got it to work globally, everything was going as it normally should. I used some regular attacks on the enemies. Then when I used a skill, all the enemies suddenly froze up and reverted to the state I described above. It seems to me like you're really close to solving this problem. the enemies seem to be all loaded up and everything, but not "activated?" I don't know much about ruby, that's just how it appears to me. good luck, and thanks.

What do you mean with "globally" and "locally"? If there is a bug in the system itself, it won't work if you have a remote server or if you run the server locally on your own PC. If there is a problem in your network, it will work on your PC, but it won't work if you connect to a remote server. If there is a problem in the scripts, then enemies won't work globally if you have the Blizz-ABS Controller in your scripts, but it will work "locally" if your enemies aren't actually global for all players but each player has his own enemies.
Generally, if you have the former problem, it is, again, your server that is not working right. If your RMX-OS works when run on your PC and doesn't work on a remote PC, then you didn't set up the remote PC properly. The enemies work fine on my PC which means the problem is not in the script. I can attack enemies where other players act as global processor without problems and enemies move around just fine.

Besides my other problem with enemies not attacking, I've noticed another really wierd thing. to me, it's way lower priority than the blizz-abs problem, because blizz-abs is crucial to my game and this is just a random rare glitch, but I thought i'd report it anyway. What happens is, the game will occasionally delete some events for no reason, and create others. It then removes the event code from some of the events it deleted and puts it in the new events it created. So I get an entirely new event that I never made with event commands that I did write, but for a different event. But please fix the blizz-abs rmxos problem first. This otehr thing rarely happens, and isn't much of a problem. It never takes away anything important.

Neither Blizz-ABS not RMX-OS does anything to your events so it's not possible that either of those scripts are responsible.

Im having this: From the moment Im on the same map with a different player, an error occurs, it can also be caused by window swapping during gameplay, because I did that too, also I have a question: Is there a possibibity to make a "Collection Lost" Window when the connection is lost?

And obviously you can. It's a script FFS. And there's a section where you can customize all the text used in RMX-OS. It's even mentioned in the manual.

No. If you turn off the server while someone is playing, only two things can happen. Either a Windows messagebox shows up saying "You have been disconnected." and you return to the title screen or a Windows messagebox saying "An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine." and the game crashes.

hi there ive a lil question  :haha:
is there a script call to disable that rmx save data ??!
eg for intro, cutscenes or the character creation system i design so is there a way to do that or can anyone make pluginn ??
btw my character creation system is at ca 75% so i release it next week but without disableing save its not acually good to use it, and cutscene and intro and etc too, ok there is still the problem that you can see other players on some maps eg for instances like ingame house or dungeons or what else but thats a different prob  :naughty:
so i wish me an disable save call and a enable save call.
thx in advance  :^_^':

Griver, you're saying it's a problem that you can see and interact with other playerS? That's kinda the point of rmx-os........
about the save data, I don't know of a call script to enable/disable it...sorry. Blizzard to I have to delete the old log files (from testing on my P.C.) first and let it make new ones?

I don't know. Btw where did you get your avatar picture/animation thing nathmatt?
EDIT: Blizzard I think I found the cause for the problem you've been helping me with. The program continually fails to write the blizzabs log, which, as you said, causes blizzabs to crash. I tried putting in the filepaths that worked for the other problems I experienced (with starting the server), but for some reason they didn't work for the message log files. I'll ask about what the correct filepath is on the vlexofree.com support forums.

Technically yes, but the only communication the server was coded for is communication with a client. You can make a program connect to the server simply using the proper connection settings that your client uses (IP and port).

EDIT: You can always make a server extension that handles some specific types of messages which you then use to communicate between the server and a custom program.

why do you think an operating system exists? it provides an interface that a developer can use to create a program and have a user interact with it. when this program asks the operating system to do something and it can't the operation system will give the program an error. the program can either handle this error or die in a ball of fire. metaphorically speaking of course.

ok sry for my bad english  :^_^':
i didnt mean its not good to see other players in rmx os , but in online games are always instances like ingame house or whatelse but thtas like i said another story  ;)
i just need the calls for disable save and enable save and if its exists a force save call ^^

example for me and my use for it:

startmap - here you start when you first login rmx os make a force save and then disable it after that you get teleportet on the next map.

character creation map - its self explaining... at the end when the player confirm his choice then i enable save and the game can start or an intro or whatelse...

so pls can you say me the calls pls ?!

PS: thx a lot for updating rmx-os even you retired  :D



EDIT: ah sry i oversee you had written EVENT COMMAND xD
but can i use it in rmx os so it actually it disables the call of the window i think not the function itself but i dont know i test it  :wacko:
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 06, 2011, 07:56:14 am
Yes. I have coded it so the auto-save doesn't work if you have disabled saving by using the event command. Of course, if the player logs out during that time, he will have to redo all the scenes.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: nathmatt on February 06, 2011, 09:52:33 am
yea thats what im doing of course i had alias 1 of the client check game messages so far i do have it to send me the an array containing the clients [uerer_id,username] so when im ready i can create a list with it im working on registering so you can prevent using this program to access someone else's server giving yourself control make the commands require admin status
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on February 06, 2011, 10:11:43 am
Oh, don't worry about that. A user cannot do any admin actions unless he's logged in. And to log in, the user MUST use the proper password. Additionally the server checks permissions as well. Basically if you use a hacked client and try to use an admin command with an account that is not an admin account, the server will prevent it. I thought of that.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: nathmatt on February 06, 2011, 10:19:11 am

like when you add \Mapname, a script read this and make the map only for you...

You didn't set up ATES properly if you don't get the right screen tinting.

1.18 is buggy !!!

when you login and then press F12 and relogin the error comes up...
when you login and close the client and then start it again and login the same bug...
when you create a char too...
yoo cant login more than one time and sometimes the bug comes even if you start the client and login or register a new user...

i tested it first with blizzz abs and controller after that only 1.18 and its the rmx-os not the controller or abs...

You have to open up the command prompt. type in ipconfig place the default gateway in the cfg.ini then go here http://whatismyip.com and use that ip in the client.

Then foward the port you used in cfg.ini

I copied/pasted a new B-abs into the SDB and also downloaded the BABS controller/ extension. My extension config looks like this:

EXTENSIONS = ['UserLogger', 'Blizz-ABS'

With some editing, you could probably convert the visual equipment to also show character appearance.

The script call for closing the chatbox isn't working. It's basically disabling messages from NPC and leaving the chatbox open.

Are you sure that you both disabled and hid the chatbox? Also, remember that RMXP causes problems with scripts calls that look like "abc = false" if you don't use the interpreter fix or put the "false" into the next line.

$game_temp.chat_enabled = false causes a freeze and the other causes an error.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RoseSkye on March 09, 2011, 03:15:38 am

That's very odd... I tested out the errors and it is weird. It doesn't error out when I have two clients open for some reason. I can open a menu and do things normally (like leave the map) but once I log off on one client the other one freezes. For some reason the ABS controller is basically glitching out because the client is saving the enemy in a spot that isn't it's default location.

I will bet money that the reason the client is erroring out and the server is crashing is either because A. the freeze when the menus are called because the menu clashes with the online system (because online gameplay is way different from offline and calling a menu is basically like pausing a heartbeat for a long time) or B. faulty saving... the server may be saving a negative (or dividing by zero). once the menu is up the player may be disconnected while still being connected.

No matter which (if any) of these it is the blatantly obvious is the BABS controller (and it's just that... I tested) is incompatible with menus, shops, its own hotkey script call, and any scene that freezes the game. The only way to basically solve that problem is to make a custom scene using pictures that doesn't freeze the game. The hotkey scene and such are annoying to re-make but noone said it'd be easy.

The biggest annoyance is the fact that the chatbox doesn't wory and the mouse system barely works (both are glitchy when the BABS controller is installed and works perfect without it.) Even with all the bugs is by far one of Blizz's most impressive creation. The customization and finesse involved in its birth is awe-inspiring to say the least. I've had a blast playing around with the system... such a blast that I forgot to eat for 2 days just staring at one map tinkering. I haven't felt this curious since christmas as a child.

How would I keep make a conditional branch to trigger only when a certain player activates it? (Follow-up question) How would I assign the specific player to a variable? Example: If a specific player activates a switch and then logs off (assuming this is with global variables). How would I check to see if they are offline and turn off the switch that was activated.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on March 10, 2011, 03:44:40 pm
1. You can check the username with $network.username == 'Blizzard'.

2. $game_variables[VARIABLE_ID] = $network.user_id I suggest you don't assign the actual player but the current user ID. This is much more convenient.

3. $network.players.has_key?(USER_ID) This will return true if the player is logged on and false if he's not.

Is there a way to have it act like a self switch? Any user that activates a specific switch will be recorded and so forth..
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on March 10, 2011, 04:26:58 pm
Not really. But there is another way. You can add another variable into, let's say, Game_System and in the RMX-OS configuration you add that variable to the save data for Game_System. But other players couldn't be notified of the state of that variable.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RoseSkye on March 11, 2011, 02:59:10 pm
I don't want to notify the player I want to trigger a switch only when the player is online. I.E. a player pulls a switch which triggers a game_switch and opens a door for as long as the player is online (unless they turn the switch off) and if they log off the game_switch will turn off so they won't exploit the switch by locking everyone else out of the room. I know how dickish people can be and basically playtest with the mentality "as a troll player how would I abuse global switches and variables that acts as a boss room".

Edit: I'd like to show off the player's guild over their username (only when they're in a guild) and their position next to their guild...
Edit 2: If this is possible will guild icons be possible as well?
Something like


*icon*Valkyrie (G. Leader)

There is a piece of code in RMX-OS for Scene_Map. Just check it out, you should be easily able to just copy paste it and it will work.

If you add a variable to Game_Actor that is the same value as $game_temp.in_battle, you could add that variable as an exchange variable. But you would also have to make sure that the variable is set and sent before entering battle because during battle there is no data transfer over the network (except for the server using keep-alive pinging).

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Sure. Just make a server extension that make the CHT protocol command send a message to all users. Or just edit the default RMX-OS script Client#handle to send it to everybody instead of just the players on the map. Just check the interpretation of CHT.

Not sure if this did it, waiting for my friend to get on so he can test it with me but I replaced the send_to_map in Client.rb on line 70 with send_to_all.

So I tried modifying your visual equipment to work without the ABS. And for the most part it worked in a normal project. However all I see are a bunch of naked people running around. Heres the code, anything particular I did wrong?
#:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=
# Visual Equipment for Blizz-ABS by Blizzard
# Version: 1.0b
# Type: Blizz-ABS Add-on
# Date: 1.2.2010
# Date v1.0b: 29.4.2010
#:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=
#
#  This script is to be distributed under the same terms and conditions like
#  the script it was created for: Blizz-ABS.
#
#:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=
#
# Information:
#
#   This script must be placed below Blizz-ABS and requires Blizz-ABS v2.57 or
#   higher to work properly. It will display equipment on the map. All sprites
#   are placed in the Graphics/Characters folder. Also keep in mind that using
#   this script can cause additional lag due to additional sprite display.
#   
#   
# Configuration:
#   
#   EXCLUDE_WEAPONS - weapons that should not be drawn
#   EXCLUDE_ARMORS  - armors that should not be drawn
#   DRAW_ORDER      - drawing order from first to last sprite (0 for weapon;
#                     1, 2, 3 and 4 for armor kinds)
#   PREFIX_WEAPON   - prefix for each spriteset file for weapons (can include
#                     a full path)
#   PREFIX_ARMOR    - prefix for each spriteset file for armors (can include
#                     a full path)
#   ACTOR_UNIQUE    - allows separate equipment files for every single actor
#   
#   
# Notes:
#   
#   - The default file naming convention is:
#     
#       WPREFIX + WID          - weapon files
#       APREFIX + AID          - armor files
#       WPREFIX + WID + SUFFIX - weapon action files
#       APREFIX + AID + SUFFIX - armor action files
#     
#       WPREFIX - by default "Equipment/w", but it can be changed
#       APREFIX - by default "Equipment/a", but it can be changed
#       WID     - weapon ID
#       AID     - armor ID
#       SUFFIX  - action suffix (i.e. _atk1, _skl, etc.)
#     
#     examples:
#       
#       Equipment/w3.png      - weapon ID 3
#       Equipment/a41.png     - armor ID 41
#       Equipment/w1_atk1.png - weapon ID 1, attack type 1
#       Equipment/a76_skl.png - armor ID 1, skill use
#     
#     If you are using the ACTOR_UNIQUE option, then the naming convention are:
#     
#       WPREFIX + BID + SEPARATOR + WID          - weapon files
#       APREFIX + BID + SEPARATOR + AID          - armor files
#       WPREFIX + BID + SEPARATOR + WID + SUFFIX - weapon action files
#       APREFIX + BID + SEPARATOR + AID + SUFFIX - armor action files
#       
#       BID       - actor ID
#       SEPARATOR - the character _ (underscore)
#     
#     examples:
#       
#       Equipment/w4_2.png      - actor ID 4, weapon ID 2
#       Equipment/a1_22.png     - actor ID 1, armor ID 22
#       Equipment/w77_7_def.png - actor ID 77, weapon ID 7, defending
#       Equipment/a3_8_atk5.png - actor ID 3, armor ID 8, attack type 5
#     
#     The default prefixes can be changed in the configuration, but the other
#     parts are fixed.
#     
#   - If you are not using the ACTOR_UNIQUE option and Blizz-ABS's action
#     animation frames other than the default, you have to adjust the action
#     animation frames. In this case all actors will use the same equipment
#     files for display and the files' frame number has to match the animation
#     frames number for every actor which also means that all actors need to
#     have the same number of action sprites for the various actions. i.e. All
#     actors have to have the same number of frames for attack type 1, the same
#     number of frames for attack type 2, the same number of frames for skill
#     use, the same number of frames for defending, etc.
#     
#   - Keep in mind that the dimensions of the spriteset and the equipment
#     sprite should match. i.e. If the actor spriteset is 192x192 pixels, then
#     the equipment for that sprite has to be 192x192 pixels as well. If you
#     have actors that use different spritesets among each other
#     
#   - You can disable / enable Visual Equipment for specific characters by
#     using a Call Script event command with the following code:
#       
#       $game_actors[ID].visual_equipment = true/false
#       $game_party.actors[POS].visual_equipment = true/false
#     
#     ID  - the actor's ID in the database
#     POS - the actor's position in the party (STARTS FROM 0, not 1!)
#     
#   - You can disable / enable Visual Equipment globally by using a Call Script
#     event command with the following code:
#       
#       $game_system.visual_equipment = true/false
#     
#

Well its getting created on myself. I see myself wearing armor but all other connected clients aren't wearing their armor. In fact I think I know what the problem is possibly.

I think that some IDs are not transmitted over the network. Maybe fixing up the exchange variables will do.

Question:
If a player edits the rmxp data clientside will it show up server-side? Like someone makes armor and weapons max stats and fiddles around with event commands and such.

Yes. The client sends the data if it changes.

Not really, no. RMX-OS is a client-side processor which is not the best choice for strict security.

Hi people,

I am new here on the forums.
I've got one question about this GREAT script!
Is it possible to post your game on your server (a site NOT your own PC) and run it with your PC off.
PM me pleas. I need to find a way to run my online game without keeping my pc on the hole time!  :wacko:

I released my game for some testing and I noticed this error in the server.

I'm not sure what is causing it yet, but I can look into that. I thought I should mention that I just started using a new database, but I'm pretty sure I did everything that needed to be done. Basicallly, do you know what might be the cause. I can probably take it from there and test some stuff myself.

What kind of data are you sending? I only send integers and nothing else. Both keys and values are all integers. If you are trying to send strings, you have make sure that strings are enclosed in ".
I also use = as the key->value identifier. If any of your strings is using that, it will mess up your data.

Post by: RyanGough on May 29, 2011, 04:11:14 pm
I'm having some issues. Can anyone help me?

I am only using RMX-OS and Blizz-ABS scripts.

1. The server is up and running and i can connect myself with no problems but my friend is having problems connecting. Some times it works and some times it dosen't.

2. When we are both connected some times one of us will randomly disconect with error message:

undefined method `x' for nil:NilClass
Game_Event:30:in `initialize'
ABS O:878:in `new'
ABS O:878:in `recreate_event'

ABS 3:6713:in `main_blizzabsrmxos_later'
ABS O:938:in `main'
-<:::RMX-OS Main:::>-:46

3. Another problem when we are both connected is that an invisble enemy will attack and kill us.

4. And the final problem is that when we die we cannot play again on that account because when it logs us in it says "game over".

so... any ideas?  :P
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on May 29, 2011, 04:39:35 pm
1. Make sure you are using the compatibility plugin for Blizz-ABS and RMX-OS.
2. Make sure you have all scripts in the right order.
3. Wipe your database after you have added all scripts. All scripts that "corrupt save data" require you to wipe your database because technically, the database contains all the save data.
4. If you keep getting a game-over screen, turn off the auto game-over option in Blizz-ABS and put together an own event system that will handle the game-over.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RyanGough on May 29, 2011, 05:32:20 pm
Thanks for a quick reply i think you have solved my 3 and 4 problems.

But for problem 1 we both have the Blizz-ABS Controller for RMX-OS script and i have correctly added the extension. I have copied and paste the whole file so we both have the same files. Im not really too sure what i was doing with port forwarding, i read somewhere that is what i needed to do, but the thing that confuses me is sometimes it is ok and the server says online for both of us and we can see each other when logged on, (it even worked sometimes before i started messing around with port forwarding)?

And for problem 2 the scripts are in this order which i think is correct:

(RMX-OS) Options
(RMX-OS) Scripts
ABS 1
ABS 2
ABS 3
Blizz-ABS Controller for RMX-OS
-<:::RMX-OS Main:::>-
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on May 29, 2011, 05:46:37 pm
Yes, you have to set up the port forwarding properly. Otherwise you will have problems with online/offline status and visibility between clients.
Try resetting your router configuration and then set it up again.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Vaelen on June 04, 2011, 10:22:44 am
Hi Blizzard.
sorry if you already answered this question (maybe it should be in the faq) but what happens if the User saves his game and load it? I still don't understand everything what is saved in the mysql database (and some other rmx-os extensions save in a .dat).
I made some tests and the server saves so much that I only need to login. (great work) So I thought to disable the save menu.
Is that a good idea (data inconsistency if loading???) or is it better to save and load (don't think so).

Maybe I should study the manual better, because I'm not sure wich switches and variables are stored in the db (I think all).

If save is not recommended it would be nice if rmx-os disables that.

Ps: is there somewhere a api for the ruby commands in rmxp? my maker refuses to help me with f1  :<_<:
the last time I worked with RPG Maker was before I studied now I'm more interested in the script commands like player_actor.die or something like that ^^ but at least a command list would be nice..

thx alot
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 04, 2011, 11:16:22 am
Technically you should disable the save menu as it saves everything still in the normal RMXP save data format on the user's HDD (though RMX-OS disables the loading menu so it can't be loaded). I didn't make RMX-OS disable the saving since it's an option in the game menu. The game creator should take care of that (preferably get a custom menu without a save option at all).

RMX-OS saves by itself frequently enough. I have explained the saving subsystem thoroughly in the technical documentation of the manual if you want more information. Long story short, it use an alternate serialization process so data can be selectively saved (only changed data is being saved which reduces network load). The only thing that can cause inconsistency is the extended autosave option which is off by default.

Switches and variables are saved with the user save data, just like the normal save data. Global switches and variables are saved separately by the RMX-OS extension. I could have made it use the database as well, but I wanted to keep that script simple without the need to add an additional table and saving to a file is simple enough.

If you need documentation on Ruby, I suggest you just google for it. There's a API reference online. RMXP's default scripts were structured based on Ruby so the only way to find out if you can use something like player_actor.die is to check out the default scripts.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Vaelen on June 04, 2011, 05:21:58 pm
thx for your respond... I totally forgot that there isn't any Load Menu  :^_^':

And yes you could write it to the db, changing the tables wouldn't be that difficult but I think there is no need for a bunch of global variables.

Its a bit offtopic but I tried your Blizz-ABS with rmx-os and the needed extension.. it worked fine but it was very laggy with over 4 players.
Is that the current state of those modifications combined or did I something wrong?
But I don't need a ABS so urgent. I like the old FF battle systems. I hope there will be no problems with a sideview battle system and rmx-os. (I didn't tried yet.. I wonder what happens to other players if they go infight). But I want the Minimap from Blizz-ABS. I don't think it would be trivial to extract the code from your ABS and didn't find some minimap in the script database.. but maybe you can help me out with this.


Have a good weekend!
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on June 04, 2011, 05:44:35 pm
Tons of Add-ons has the Blizz-ABS Minimap script as a separate add-on.
I never had the conditions to properly stress-test the server with more than one player at a time so you're on your own here.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Vaelen on June 04, 2011, 10:23:22 pm
Oh ok.. Tons of Addons.. the name is adequate..

If you need some people for tests just let me know.. my friends/dev team and I will help you gladly.
our time zone is CEST / GMT+1.



Edit:
there is a bug if you use rmx-os with the seperate minimap. I don't remember this bug at Blizz-ABS but with this minimap I can switch with F5 between different views, not every view is updatet. I switched often that I get the chat and the Minimap..  but on a test with friends we realize that the chat isn't updated.. you just don't see any text.. again I click f5 to find a view which updates the chat.. but then the minimap isn't updated..


anyway I deactivated all unnecessary scripts.. it cause only lag.. (like global time & night) its not much but the amount counts..
tomorrow I should get my v-server.. I'm curious how the lag will be..

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

Just change the chat button in RMX-OS. It should be somewhere in the extended script configuration.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Vaelen on June 08, 2011, 06:42:48 pm
ok I will try that later..

edit:
RMX-OS.rb:4:in `require': /home/rmxp/mysql.so: invalid ELF header - /home/rmxp/mysql.so (LoadError)
       from RMX-OS.rb:4:in `<main>'

maybe I need a different mysql.so for linux?  I will search..

edit2:
ok i found it here http://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php/topic,5055.0.html

but now i have this error
libmysqlclient.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /home/rmxp/mysql.so 

I will search..



edit3:

I MADE IT MOTHER FU§§§ %"§%"..
apache, tomcat, mysql, java, ruby..  and now this shit.. 8 hours of my lifetime.. and now it works.. (I never want to be a linux admin)


For all Users with Ubuntu and MySql >5.1.x

first you need the modified version of mysql.so  from here http://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php/topic,5055.0.html
big thx @ edwardthefma

and then you need libmysqlclient15 (because 15 isn't existent since mysql5.1)  you can get it here http://automation.binarysage.net/?page_id=315
thats the last source wich is online and has these files!!  (here is the install tut http://automation.binarysage.net/?p=1311)

Just copy the file to your server, cd to this folder and type
dpkg -i libmysqlclient15off_5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu10.5_i386


and then you can finally start RMX-OS..
Blizzard, pls distribute the libmysqlclient15 deb files or at least write that in the manual.. or update all your database stuff to use the new libmysqlclient.


have a nice day..

last edit: since rmx-os doesn't run with a daemon or something like that the RMX-OS Server will be closed after you close your Putty(SSH Session)..
with this behaviour you don't need a server if you always need to run putty on a computer..
But you can start the Ruby Script with a & at the end..

ruby RMX-OS.rb &

and it will be run as Orphan Process if you close the window..

pls add this to the faq or manual.

Hi all,
I'm here with a question.

Today I was trying all day to run rmx-os and it works just perfectly untill i try changing it all from just localhost to my external ip and then trying to run the server.

To clear things out:
-All my ports are forwarded and work. (tested and confirmed)
-MySQL works fine
-I set up the SQL in Navicat
-There I set the server name/ip to localhost (tried all kinds of ips here, 192.164.1.1, my external...)
-The server works fine in localhost (I can connect and make an account and that works)
-I don't know what settings to change to the external ip and wich not to.
-I have no server extensions installed, just the default rmx-os folder.

I tried a lot of different combinations and after setting each one up i tried to run the server and it gives me this error:

Starting TCP Server at '*my external ip*:54269' . . .
Unexpected error occured!
The asked adress is not right in the context of the adress/ - bind<2>
then theres 6 lines of initialize, new, start_socket, start, main and <main>

RMX-OS Server is being teminated . . .



Now my question to you is, could there be some setting that im forgetting? Becouse it feels like im just forgetting one little detail.
Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions :D
Thank you

Post by: Blizzard on June 09, 2011, 04:06:25 pm
You don't do that. You run your server on your local IP (NOT localhost but an IP like 192.168.x.x) and forward the ports to your machine with that IP. In the client configuration of RMX-OS you enter the external IP.

you are always faster.. but I can confirm :) you need only to set up your lan IP. your port forwarding is appointed to a lan ip.. and thats the ip you need in the config.

Hey Blizz, do you have any ideas why the lag is variable on different maps?

I have some maps that lags so much that the game even slow downs if some other player moves around.
And on another map its nearly perfect sync without any lag. There are almost no scripts (we do only mapping at the moment) on both maps.. but why this huge difference?

Other Question, shoud I use Blizz Abseal? (i don't use blizz abs)

ABSEAL doesn't work well with RMX-OS. You can try, but it's likely that you have problems. I haven't really tested ABSEAL with RMX-OS, but I can see many potential problems.

I didn't realised any difference with Abseal or without.. but I will made some tests (not today, my head feels like it gonna expload)

I don't know the difference.. first I thought its about the map size.. but its not.. and also the script amount has no effekt.. (maybe coincidence).. tomorrow I hope my brain feels not like eaten by a zombie.. then I will make some tests..

Make a map 100x100 with ca. 200 normal events and event graphics. Run it once with ABSEAL on and once with ABSEAL off. You will see the difference.
You can also use the separate ABSEAL script in a new project if you wanna do this test.

Post by: Vaelen on June 15, 2011, 08:56:22 pm
On my PC see no difference ^^  but on my laptop.. omfg..  (rmxp uses only one core -.-)  unplayable without abseal.

for the multiplayer it makes no difference (didn't mention one).
Do Blizz-ABS use the same code to do the work of Abseal? (If I understand correctly it have his own abseal)

But still the lag.. I will now delete all scripts except the 3 rmx os scripts.. and then I try it with blizz-abs  (I see a lot of drop table^^)

Edit:
I think I will stay with blizz abs and rmx-os.. the lag could be worse. I think its better as without blizz-abs oO.. but there is really no abseal with the controller.
Now it lags even on my PC on the big Test Map..
But I understand why abseal can't be on blizz-abs with rmx-os.
I hope your ARC Project precedes.. I really want to change the engine :)  (would be cool if you get it compatible with all scripts.. like rmx-os.. or something similar.. but native implemented multiplayer is essential)

Post by: Blizzard on June 16, 2011, 02:16:08 am
The ABSEAL script that I have released is actually taken from Blizz-ABS, but non-Blizz-ABS parts have been removed (such as on the minimap).
Yes, Blizz-ABS requires more CPU time (obviously). If you want to enable ABSEAL for Blizz-ABS with RMX-OS, there is a forced turning off in the Blizz-ABS Controller script. Just comment out that value and you will have ABSEAL for Blizz-ABS with RMX-OS and then you can try it out.

I've got a problem...
My computer is connected on a network at home. And we all share a external IP.
How can I connect my game with other people?

EDIT: I have the MySQL database working now. But I can't get the Ruby Server starting with my external IP. I can get it running with my localhost. I have opened the standard RMX-OS port in my Router and Firewall, I also wiped my database... So whats wrong?

EDIT AGAIN: Is it dangerous to make your IP public?

LAST EDIT: Forget everything I did it. What I did wrong: I added the wrong Ruby in my firewall. (Because I have a old and a new version.)

Well off that topic as I'm not worried about that. Was just wondering.

I have created a PHP script that generates an offline/online image. Not hard to do but I've had troubles with several web hosts not allowing you to do port checks. Mine happens to allow it.
[img]http://decisive-media.net/server.php?host=your_ip_here&port=your_port_here[/img]

Which will produce the following.

IP = 209.159.212.203 : Port = 25566

Soo.. Hi

I only just found out about RMX-OS, installed everything and it's working fine.
However, whenever I try to "install" an extension/plugin script my server won't start..! =/
I've only tried 2 scripts so far (Global Day-and-Night System and User Logger)

So when I place them where they should be and try to run the server it closes
down as soon as it recognizes that there's an extension script,
then when I remove it again, it works just fine.... =/

Any clue what's going on? =/

So I have a question that's probably pretty stupid, but I just wasn't sure. Lets say client side I used a variable for the players skill level in mining or something like that. Will the engine save the values of these variables automatically or do I need to add something, or actually save the game?

maybe you need Global Switches and Variables for RMX-OS http://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php?topic=5328.0 (http://forum.chaos-project.com/index.php?topic=5328.0)  :P
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

The variables aren't global though, they'd be different for every character.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 29, 2011, 06:12:19 pm
You need to tell RMX-OS what the additional save data is per actor. Find SAVE_DATA['Game_Actor'] in the config section and add the additional variables there.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

You think? Well, those are saved automatically already and they are saved for each character separately (every player has his own set of variables).

I've pretty much troubleshooted all of the problems I had with rmx-os all night (haven't gone to sleep yet Oo), so i'm fairly good at finding stuff on my own. One thing is bothering me, it's probably just a miscalculation by me. When I make an enemy and name it say \e[2], it shows up on the map, the minimap as an enemy, but I can't attack it and it doesn't attack me. I know thats the common procedure to make an enemy in blizz-abs, maybe it's different in rmx-os?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RyanGough on December 12, 2011, 03:01:46 pm
Hi I am using RMX-OS with Blizz-abs and I have a little/major problem.
How do I make it so when an actor leaves the map and comes back the enemies and everything don't reset?
I also had an invisible enemy issue but I guess the 2 are related since if one player leaves they will reset all the enemies?
I have set it so my enemies re-spawn with the blizz-abs config, which is what I want but I don't want them to re-spawn every time somebody leaves the map.
It is probably very basic and incredibly easy but I have looked everywhere and can't find any information on it.
I am 95% sure it isn't any thing to do with scripts and is probably easily done with events or switches, I also read about global switches will I have to use that script or not?
Sorry if this is the wrong area to post didn't know where to go.
Thanks in advance
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on December 12, 2011, 03:09:50 pm
I suggest that you learn how to use switches and variables for that particular problem (if you don't know how, that is), since the solution is basically the same in an offline and online game. Though, you might additionally need the RMX-OS plugin for global switches and variables, depending on what kind of final effect you want to achieve (whether the change on the map is propagated to all players or only to the current player). Other than that, it's not very wise to "save" the state of a map without any active players. Using global variables with timers for specific things (e.g. manual respawning timer for the enemy) would be way better here.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RyanGough on December 12, 2011, 04:00:02 pm
Ok thanks, I understand how switches work but I don't understand, how to say when a specific enemy dies then turn on switch 001? Because blizz-abs uses \e[1] thing for enemies. I can make my other npc's vanish but just not enemies. What event command should I be using to turn on the switch?

Post by: mroedesigns on December 22, 2011, 04:07:46 am
I checked the script reference and didn't see anything, but how would I go about hiding the players username via script call? Also, "$game_temp.chat_active = false" doesn't hide the chat window like I thought it would.

RMXOS::Data is on top, the constants you're looking for are somewhere inside of RMXOS::Data. I've given them names that should make it easy to find them. There are lots of constants, you will have to do a bit of scrolling and reading until you find the ones you want to change.

If whatever host you're using allows for outside MySql connections, you can use your webhost as an SQL server. However, in order to run your game off of a web server, that server needs to be set up for that with proper software.

I had a pretty good reason for that, but I honestly cannot remember. ._. I think it was so you can't go bother people in the whole game if you try to spam somebody with buddy requests. If you make a new friend, you're most likely going to do it while playing on the same map.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on April 22, 2012, 05:15:46 pm
@MOAL: You have not copied both parts of the script.

@RyukLikesApples: Actually the foreign key constraints are there to consecutively wipe data that is not needed anymore. e.g. If a user is deleted, there is no point in keep that user's save data or IP list (hence ON CASCADE DELETE). They also ensure that the data integrity is kept. e.g. Save data will always reference an existing player. Save data cannot be saved if it is not bound to a player. If you did a database wipe and then the error started happening, then you didn't do the database wipe properly. Have you tried dropping the whole database and creating it again or have you just tried emptying the tables? If you just tried emptying the tables, it's possible that they actually weren't wiped completely without giving you a proper error message.

EDIT: Wait, I can see that you have some data there. If you want to fill the database with data again, you have to do it in the right order. First you have to fill in all the users data and then the tables with foreign key constraints referring to the users table. Basically if you have a foreign key constraint, you first have to fill the table that is being referred to. The simplest way is to first fill the tables without constraints and then continuously fill the tables with constraints referring tables that you have already added.

Also, if you want a clean database without data, use the SQL script that is given with RMX-OS by default and it will create an empty database for you.

In case you're confused, this is what a line that adds data looks like:

INSERT INTO `ips` (`user_id`, `ip`) VALUES
(1, '72.197.185.233');


Notice the "INSERT INTO" command.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RyukLikesApples on April 22, 2012, 05:28:01 pm
Hm...I just noticed that if I removed the foreign keys, data isn't saved at all! If I make an account called Test1, the database is unchanged!

I tried dropping the entire database and remaking (0 rows in each table) and when I login there is an error:

Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`rmxosdb`.`ips`, CONSTRAINT `ips_ibfk_1` FOREIGN KEY (`user_id`) REFERENCES `users` (`user_id`) ON DELETE CASCADE)
./Data/Action_Handler1.rb:47:in `query'

/srv/rmxos/rmx/Data/Client.rb:47:in `handle'
/srv/rmxos/rmx/Data/Server.rb:272:in `block in run'


Edit: Prior to upgrading ruby and it's counterpart mysql.so, this worked fine, as did the database sql commands (wiped it clean a fair amount of times).

Edit 2: The process I use is 1. Stop server. 2. Drop database 3. Use mysql script (RMX-OS SQL Database.sql) 4. Check to see that there are 0 rows in each table 5. start the server (no problems) 5. use client to try and register 6. hit enter key for the register button after I inpout username and password 7."You have been disconnected" and the error in console, no data is written to mysql server.

Edit 2 million: If I comment out this line: #      RMXOS.server.sql.query("REPLACE INTO ips(user_id, ip) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{ip}')")


the entire thing WORKS, even data saving. So I KNOW it is this line. Yeah, it is this line. But then I get some other errors later about how the IP doesnt exist etc.

I apparently have another problem, I'm using Hamachi for the IP and a MySQL database. I can launch the server successfully ( it even says so ), but when I try to log in, I get an error that says "Server did not respond." My hamachi is working just fine, it's on and everything. My firewall is off and not blocking anything. What could be the problem? Here's what I get on the server log, if it helps any: http://i42.tinypic.com/24cbko2.png Edit: and another error... http://i40.tinypic.com/18p5ab.png they both happen when I try to log in, only the second one that I just added, only says "MySQL server has gone away."

I've tried this with two MySQL providers and both gets only one of these.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on April 23, 2012, 01:05:45 pm
@MOAL: If your machine has not been configured to accept incoming connections, then it won't work regardless of firewall, port forwarding and anything else. You first have to set up your PC to accept incoming connections. Sadly I don't remember anymore how exactly it is done. Try googling that error and see what comes up.
Also, you should upgrade to RMX-OS 1.18. There have been some improvements. Among other things, it may actually help you a bit with your problems.

@RyukLikesApples: You said that you tried using custom Ruby versions and mysql.so files, right? I suggest that you use the versions that I have specified in the manual and that you use the files already contained in RMX-OS. This will have the highest chance of everything working properly.

I have taken a look at the error you are getting and this is the whole method:

	def try_register(username, password)
# try to find user
check = RMXOS.server.sql.query("SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM users WHERE username = '#{RMXOS.fix_string(username)}'")
hash = check.fetch_hash
# user already exists
return RMXOS::RESULT_FAIL if hash['count'].to_i > 0
# get user count
check = RMXOS.server.sql.query("SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM users")
hash = check.fetch_hash
RMXOS.server.sql.query("START TRANSACTION")
# first registered user becomes admin
group = (hash['count'].to_i == 0 ? RMXOS::GROUP_ADMIN : RMXOS::GROUP_PLAYER)
# register new user
RMXOS.server.sql.query("INSERT INTO users (username, password, usergroup) VALUES ('#{RMXOS.fix_string(username)}', '#{password}', #{group})")
# get new user ID
check = RMXOS.server.sql.query("SELECT user_id FROM users WHERE username = '#{RMXOS.fix_string(username)}'")
hash = check.fetch_hash
user_id = hash['user_id'].to_i
RMXOS.server.sql.query("INSERT INTO user_data (user_id, lastlogin) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{RMXOS.get_sqltime(Time.now.getutc)}')")
# get client's IP address
ip = @client.socket.peeraddr[3]
# record IP
RMXOS.server.sql.query("REPLACE INTO ips(user_id, ip) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{ip}')")
RMXOS.server.sql.query("COMMIT")
return RMXOS::RESULT_SUCCESS
end


Notice these lines:

		RMXOS.server.sql.query("INSERT INTO user_data (user_id, lastlogin) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{RMXOS.get_sqltime(Time.now.getutc)}')")
# get client's IP address
ip = @client.socket.peeraddr[3]
# record IP
RMXOS.server.sql.query("REPLACE INTO ips(user_id, ip) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{ip}')")
RMXOS.server.sql.query("COMMIT")


This means that there is definitely a user entry in the database before the IP is logged. But I can't remember how well things work when you use transactions and if foreign constraints are disabled during them so everything can work out. The only thing that I can suggest is that you move the COMMIT line further up so the user is definitely already registered in the database when his IP is supposed to be added:

		RMXOS.server.sql.query("COMMIT")
# get client's IP address
ip = @client.socket.peeraddr[3]
# record IP
RMXOS.server.sql.query("REPLACE INTO ips(user_id, ip) VALUES (#{user_id}, '#{ip}')")


If the problem really is the transaction in progress, this change should prevent the foreign key error.
If this doesn't work, then just remove the lines. Technically it's an optional feature so you don't really need it. But you won't be able to IP ban users properly.
Also, if you are still having errors with this one, you should keep in mind that there is a similar line in the try_login method in same file (line 86) so you might wanna remove that one as well.

@Blizzard - I updated to 1.18 of RMX-OS, allowed incoming connections, and rearranged everything accordingly. But the error remains, same old "Server did not respond." and everything. I searched google on these errors but I can't seem to find any working solutions. I've also tried switching out the mySQL databases in hopes that it was the problem, though my provider for mySQL is up and running just fine.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on April 23, 2012, 02:44:46 pm
No, the problem is definitely that your machine isn't configured to accept incoming connections. Somebody else had the same problem once. In fact several people had that exact same problem. But I can't remember anymore how it can be fixed. :/ You have mess around with some of Windows' settings and who is allowed to connect to the PC.

The files included gave me elf header errors. Compiling MySQL.so by myself fixed the problem, but global switches and vars script had errors using it. After upgrading to 1.9.1 global switches and vars worked but login started having problems. I will try what you recommended by movin the command up, will update after I do so; thank you very much for your help.

I tried his file when I first started (~7 days ago) and seeing as it did not work, I had to compile my own :P

Edit:  My god, Blizzard, you are an absolute genius. IT WORKS!

And finally: a game question: is it possible to force parts of the game to be clientside? for instance, cutscenes need to be clientside to display properly, or is there an alternative method to making cutscenes that you would recommend?

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on April 24, 2012, 02:33:30 am
I'm glad this worked out. :) You just followed the instructions by Vaelen, right? If this worked for you as well, then I can be sure that this method works and add it to RMX-OS.

As for your question: Technically everything already is client side (except enemies). Using Global Switches and Variables is how you make things be global.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: RyukLikesApples on April 24, 2012, 10:04:54 am
What if the cutscenes use sprites that move around? Since the server controls the npcs wouldn't it look weird? Or by enemies do you mean the ones in battle, not npcs?

Thanks,
Ryuk
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on April 24, 2012, 10:18:32 am
No, the server doesn't control map events. It's actually a processing pattern that makes one of the current players on the map the processor and then the positions are propagated to all other clients. If I remember right, events are not global so events moving around on one client will not move around on another one. I can't remember if I mentioned that somewhere and said that events should stay still to avoid problems.

Hey guys!

I haven't been able to get this online system working..tho truthfully i haven't tried so much atm.
I'm still concerned with learning RGSS basics and making the general idea I want to produce.

But my question is:
I know this system is designed for MMORPG play. But what about a more simple system? can you use RMXP-OS to link games together without the Server and SQL?
Basically storage would be local on the PC. you could either enter single player or multiplayer. One person is host the others are client connecting to host's IP.
and then friends can opt in load from the host's file...and choose to play char slot 1,2,3, or 4. (or default them to a slot and re arrange the party to desire)

Ex:
Like loading Zsnes and "Secret of Mana" then connecting to the Hosts IP.
then you can select who is player 1 or 2...so on so forth.

Is this something RMXP-OS can do with little modification...or is it even possible?
Thanks :)

RMX-OS is based on my SQL, you will have to use SQL to make it work.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on May 13, 2012, 02:03:39 am
The SQL database handles your save data and all user data. Making this work with files on the server is very bothersome. SQL databases are intended for this very purpose so it was a natural choice. Setting up MySQL is fairly simple so I highly recommend you do so. Otherwise you would have to get somebody to rewrite how saving works in RMX-OS.

OHHH!! I got a reply from the Blizz man himself.  >:3
(Really tho..your the reason I'm back into programming at all..even with just RPG Maker. your ABS and OS system were BIG influence and the deciding factor to buy XP over the others.)
ok enough fanboy-ing.

I'm getting to the point where my "system" is where I want it.. only looking for minor things to update it with.
Its not a huge deal..server data based or not.. Its a compromise I can make for even having the option.

Since I haven't been able to get my SQL and the server functioning right (tho i probably messed it up hard by recoding things)
I haven't been able to see the answer to these questions.

The casting system is pretty awesome as is from BABS..but online..you cant pause the ENTIRE game to select targets in an MMO.. so is it real time while you select?
and if I in fact wanted to make this  in  an MMO style. Id like to limit areas to a party such as an "instanced" area (as so many games do atm..but with my own spin on it). limiting interruption from outsiders of the party.
I cant imagine you didn't think thru a process like that so I'm sure it exists.
how is that handled?

Once again.. sorry for my book posts and litter of questions.
in all honesty I'm really just becoming passionate about this stuff again...and loading on knowledge asap..while probably annoying the forum as I do so lol.

much respect for you all,

Thanks :D
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on May 13, 2012, 04:05:09 am
Try following the guide in the manual for the SQL server. If you still can't get it running, try googling for a tutorial.

Yeah, I know that it's not good to freeze the game when selecting targets. You should post in the Blizz-ABS topic and suggest to winkio that he implements an option to not freeze the game in Blizz-ABS 3.x.

Instanced areas have been discussed several times. While it's possible to make a script to allow that, there are several complications. I know you don't feel like reading 60+ pages of this topic, but if you want more detailed information on why it should or should not be done (which I honestly can't remember anymore what I said), you will have to read it.

Post by: Kiwa on May 13, 2012, 06:21:17 am
Originally I thought "oh I don't need to save data on a server so I don't need SQL".
and I tried to make the server while my PC was offline and using the defaulting IP..

and god knows what I did after that...
I later discovered I need the SQL for the connection to work...and I tried to remove SQL from the .ini
then i realized I was ruining everything..so I'll have to start fresh and uninstall my SQL and such.
and properly follow the directions this time.

As for reading 65 pages or so for the Blizz OS... I'll take taht over reading the 250 page monster the ABS thread is. lol.
Thanks for the help :P

I'll be gone for a few days so I wont be able to do much..

Older RMX-OS versions are not available anymore due to seriously out-of-date code.

Quote from: FAQ from the manual
Question:
I can't get the server running. What do I do?

Answer:
Make sure that you have set up the server configuration properly. After a clean installation, the only thing that you should have to set up manually is SQL_PASSWORD. If you are trying to run RMX-OS on a network where the server should be visible to the network as well, refer to the Installation Guide.


If you are not willing to read THE MANUAL and solve the most basic problems for which I have already provided answers IN THE MANUAL, then I am not willing to offer any more help. If you have read the manual, if you are 100% sure that you have installed and set up everything properly, then I will help you with your problem. I didn't write the manual so I would have answer the same questions over and over. I wrote it so that I didn't have to answer them over and over, so that all the answers are at one place and can be accessed easily, yet people STILL REFUSE WITH EVERY SINGLE CELL OF THEIR VERY BEING to read the manual. It's REALLY frustrating. So I ask you kindly to read the manual.

Post by: G_G on June 28, 2012, 08:32:07 am
It means you didn't set your server up properly. Or you didn't setup the options in the script properly. The manual explains how to set this up. Seriously. Read through it. If you can't figure it out, then you don't need to be dealing with this script. We're not here to hand walk you through the entire process.

Again, your question has already been answered in the manual. Read the manual.

Quote from: FAQ
Question:
When somebody connects, some settings were not saved.

Answer:
RMX-OS does not save all data by default. Either configure RMX-OS to save additional data or make use of events to restore game data that actually does not need to be saved. Keep in mind that custom scripts may have additioanl custom save data.

I'm really having a hard time to understand what the error is because of your English.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 26, 2012, 12:35:25 pm
You can either use your database management software to delete accounts (they are stored in the table "users") or you can run an SQL query on the database (which actually also requires database management software) to delete the user. The simplest way is just to open the database in the database management software, open the users table, simply find the user account you want to delete and delete it. Most database management software should have a graphical user interface that makes it easy to navigate.

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 26, 2012, 02:20:11 pm
Yes, trading is available. I don't know the commands from memory right now, but I think it was /trade. Just look it up in the manual. You should find a list of all chat commands easily.

PVP is only available if you use an ABS. Blizz-ABS works with RMX-OS, just don't forget to add the special compatibility script called "Blizz-ABS Controller for RMX-OS" and the server extension with the same name.

The only thing that would strike me here is that it may not be able to show UTF8 characters properly. But I have tested that and it worked fine. Can you upload a copy of your client? I'd like to see if it happens on my PC as well with the same client.

I might have an idea what could be causing this problem. Which characters are displayed? Are the "S" and the "0" the first character? What happens if you don't use SHIFT? When you press a button and the character does not appear, what happens if you press Backspace? Does the visible character get deleted or the "invisible" one?

What they mean:

If you try to log-in to your server, you can only type one character.
Also, if you type your password, each character makes 2 *'s.

I checked the settings, and nothing seem to be wrong.

Then I think I know what's causing the problem. For some reason your keyboard sends multiple characters when you press keys. Sure, a non-ASCII character is ok to have multiple characters since it's encoded in UTF8, but others shouldn't be doing that. I'll take a look at this, but I'm not really sure if it's fixable at all.

EDIT: Actually I think I found the problem. :) I'll put up v1.21 over the course of the day.

EDIT: There you go. I couldn't test it myself, because my keyboard only sends 2-byte Unicode characters. It was basically a bug that was caused by a mistake I made when updating the input module to properly support 4-byte Unicode characters. One piece of code was still assuming 2-byte characters.

Keep in mind that you may need a proper font for 4 byte Unicode characters.

And also, this here:

Is this the right place to post?

The bug I mentioned earlier in the RMXP Converter thread also occurs on a fresh copy of RMX-OS without any modifications. (Version 1.21)
I should note when using the RGSS or RGSS2 player it works fine but when I use the RGSS3 player the same bug occurs.
Maybe it has something to do with the newer ruby versions?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 30, 2012, 10:05:39 am
Very likely. I am actually quite surprised that RMX-OS works with RGSS2, because it was not coded specifically to do that. It's only supposed to work with RGSS.
I'll try to come up with a solution. You can then test it out and if it works, I can add it to the official release.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on July 30, 2012, 12:23:02 pm
Yeah I was pretty surprised too when I found out it was working with the RGSS2 player.

# Custom Game Controls by Blizzard
# Version: 4.2 RMX-OS Edition
#:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=:=
#
# Compatiblity:
#
#   99% compatible with SDK 1.x, 90% compatible with SDK 2.x.
#
#
# Note:
#
#   Why is this input module better than others? I has far less code and it
#   can handle keyboard language layout.
#
#
# Explanation & Configuration:
#
#   This Add-on will allow you to specify your own game controls. Just below
#   is a list of possible keys, below that is the configuration. The default
#   configuration is RMXP's real game control configuration. You can add any
#   key specification into a key array and separate them with commas. Example:
#  
#   RIGHT = [Key['Arrow Right'], Key[','], Key['F'], Key['Ctrl'], Key['3'],
#            Key['NumberPad 6'], Key['F3'], Key['\''], Key['\\']]
#  
#   This example would assign for the RIGHT button the following keys:
#   - directional right (right arrow key)
#   - comma
#   - letter key F
#   - Control key (CTRL)
#   - Number Key 3 (on top over the letter keys)
#   - Numberpad Key 6 (number 6 on the numberpad on the right)
#   - Functional Key 3 (F3)
#   - apostrophe (')
#   - backslash (\)

In Ruby 1.9.x the method String#[] does not return a byte anymore. Instead, it returns a string. That's why you are getting that error which also reminded me where I saw this error previously. I got it when I tried running Terranigma 2 on ARC which also uses my Input module. This edited Input module should take care of the problem while still maintaining compatibility with Ruby 1.8.x
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on July 30, 2012, 12:32:05 pm
YOURETHEBEST
Works like a charm :D
edit: yeah I did read something about the string function changed in Ruby 1.9.x from 1.8 but I had no idea how to fix it myself.
Unfortunately I have found another bug/error...
When using ARC the servers always show as Offline thus the player cannot connect.
In RMXP the server shows as Online.
Any idea how to fix this?

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 30, 2012, 01:36:59 pm
I'm putting together a new build of ARC and then I'll test it.

EDIT: I found the problem. It was basically the same reason: String encoding.

I have uploaded a fixed 1.21 that should work fine with ARC. But you also have to update one of ARC's files. Open Data/RMXP.rb and replace the entire code there with this:

Spoiler: ShowHide
# this makes sure that Kernel#require and Kernel#load don't need (but still accept) a full path anymore
$:.clear
$:.push(Dir.getwd)

# wrapper for RMXP's Win32API class
class Win32API
 
 LIMIT_L = 4294967296
 LIMIT_S = 65536
 LIMIT_C = 256
 
 def initialize(dllname, func, import, export = "0", calltype = :stdcall)
   import = import.join('') if import.is_a?(Array)
   export = export.join('') if export.is_a?(Array)
   @export = export.clone
   import.upcase!
   export.upcase!
   @api = Win32::API.new(func, import, export, dllname)
 end

 def call(*args)
   result = @api.call(*args)
   result -= LIMIT_L if @export == 'l' && result >= LIMIT_L / 2
   result -= LIMIT_S if @export == 's' && result >= LIMIT_S / 2
   result -= LIMIT_C if @export == 'c' && result >= LIMIT_C / 2
   return result
 end

 alias Call call
 
end


While at a first glance the different Win32API module in newer versions of Ruby seems superior, it turns out that it can't handle properly all data types. e.g. it only has the unsigned versions of the number data types such as unsigned char, unsigned short and unsigned long. It doesn't work with signed ones so the socket code wasn't even working right when I fixed the string problems because it would keep returning "4294967295" instead of "-1" in some functions. But with this code replaced and the new RMX-OS code, everything should be fine.

There are quite a few things that can go wrong here and I really don't have time to test each single command and server/client message. If you come across problems and/or crashes, let me know and I'll fix them.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on July 30, 2012, 04:21:14 pm
Good luck! :D

EDIT: hmmm, updated rmxp.rb and rmx-os but server still shows as offline..
Could the problem be that I'm using an older version of the server selection scene? (I'm using it for compatibility with pokemon essentials)
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 30, 2012, 05:11:52 pm
It's possible.

I've just checked again to make sure everything is fine and it works in ARC without problems. The only thing that I could imagine would be that you may not be downloading the current version, but a version that your browser cached. Try emptying your browser cache and then redownload. You can easily find out if you have the fixed version. Use the search function to find $1.unpack('CCC'). If the text is not found, you're not using the new version.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on July 31, 2012, 05:13:48 am
(http://i49.tinypic.com/wclstz.png)

Updated as you said, replaced rmxp.rb ,
$1.unpack('CCC')
is there in the rmx-os code.
Here is the modified part of the scene_servers:
def create_scene
   super
   # get all server names
   server_names = []
   RMXOS::Options::SERVERS.each {|server| server_names.push(server.name)}
   server_names.push(RMXOS::Data::Exit)
   # create server selection window
   @command_window = Window_CommandPokemon.new(server_names, 224) #(224, server_names)
   @command_window.x, @command_window.y = 64, 128
   @command_window.active = true
   @command_window.index = 0
   # create server states window
   states = []
   @server_states.size.times {states.push(RMXOS::Data::ServerOffline)}
   @online_window = Window_CommandPokemon.new(states, 224) #(224, states)
   @online_window.x, @online_window.y = 352, 128
   @online_window.active = false
   @online_window.index = -1
 end



EDIT: When I set my server ip to 127.0.0.1 and in my RMX-OS options, it suddenly works.
Could it be that ARC doesn't handle external ip's the right way?

Also looks like RMX-Os is starting to do funny stuff with comparisons:

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on July 31, 2012, 06:41:46 am
RMX-OS uses Win32API calls for sockets so it should be working. I'll take a look at it.

That error is not because of RMX-OS, it's because of Ruby 1.9.x Strings. :/ I'll see if this can be fixed easily.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on July 31, 2012, 12:27:53 pm
I'll take a look at the string problem, too.

EDIT: Converting the variables to integers fixes the error. (I think)
However, that means I'll have to add it to a lot of variables..
There should be an easier way to fix this.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 01, 2012, 11:17:27 am
I checked it and I'm not entirely sure why you are getting that crash. The line is this one, right?

new = eval("#{classe.name}.new(#{args})")


args is taken from RMXOS::Options::CREATION_DATA of the given class. e.g.

Code: default creation data for Actors
CREATION_DATA[Game_Actor] = '1'


Now this is a string that should be interpreted as such and the final code in eval should be like this:

Game_Actor.new(1)


If you are getting errors like this, check your creation data. Maybe you use '1' instead of '"1"' (where the latter is a string) which then caused the problem.

As for the network not responding properly, guess what the problem was: String encoding again. :P I'll just finish up the edits in RMX-OS and upload 1.21 with the new fixes for ARC/Ruby 1.9.x again.

EDIT: There you go. Get the fixed version and keep on testing. Let me know when you encounter the next problem.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 01, 2012, 11:52:11 am
Thanks for the fix, and I just found out the crash was not occuring because of RMX-OS but because of the Pokémon scripts.
I guess comparables have changed between 1.8 and 1.9 too.

EDIT:

Example:

It crashes with this:
# Gets the number of Exp Points needed to reach the given
# level with the given growth rate.
# growth -- Growth rate.
 def PBExperience.pbGetStartExperience(level,growth)
   if growth>=6 || growth<0
     return ArgumentError.new("The growth rate is invalid.")
   end
   if level.to_i<0
     return ArgumentError.new("The level is invalid.")
   end
   level=MAXLEVEL if level>MAXLEVEL
   return pbGetExpInternal(level,growth)
 end


But works if I change it to this:
# Gets the number of Exp Points needed to reach the given
# level with the given growth rate.
# growth -- Growth rate.
 def PBExperience.pbGetStartExperience(level,growth)
   if growth.to_i>=6 || growth.to_i<0
     return ArgumentError.new("The growth rate is invalid.")
   end
   if level.to_i<0
     return ArgumentError.new("The level is invalid.")
   end
   level=MAXLEVEL if level>MAXLEVEL
   return pbGetExpInternal(level,growth)
 end


Does that mean I would have to edit every comparison manually, or do you know an easier way?

How have you set up the CREATION_DATA option in RMX-OS?
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

    CREATION_DATA[PokeBattle_Trainer] = '\'\',\'\''

    CREATION_DATA[PokemonMail] = '\'\',\'\',\'\''
    CREATION_DATA[PokemonBox] = '\'\''

Comparison of a string using <, >, => or <= didn't work in Ruby 1.8.x either. But it seems that some data may not be saved as it should.
I don't know if the save data format makes much sense to you, but it would be good if you code find the database entry that is causing that crash and then check whether the growth variable was stored as a string with "" or just as an integer.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 01, 2012, 04:50:51 pm
I looked it up, but it doesn't save the growth variable in the database.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 01, 2012, 04:52:43 pm
Where else does it obtain the variable from?

EDIT: Actually I know it's taking it probably from the data files. After all, I was the first to write a compatibility plugin for the Pokemon Starter Kit so it works with RMX-OS and I remember how it worked in concept. You should check in the loading methods if the loaded data is properly converted into Integer instances instead of just using plain Strings. Remember that String#[] now returns another String in Ruby 1.9.x, not an Integer instance anymore.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 02, 2012, 12:12:27 pm
The variable growth is in fact the growthrate variable, which it retrieves from the file dexdata.dat
Only I have no clue how to open this kind of .dat file..
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 02, 2012, 12:23:58 pm
If I remember right, the .dat files are generated based on the .txt files that are used to define all pokemon. Try checking what class the growthrate variable is immediately after loading. Use "p VARIABLE.class.name" for that.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 02, 2012, 01:02:46 pm
"String"
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: Blizzard on August 02, 2012, 02:07:29 pm
Yeah, something seems to be wrong with the original format of the data then. Have you tried recreating all the data? If I remember right, there should be a special condition that you turn on and then instead of running the game, it would create the data package.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 02, 2012, 02:51:57 pm
I think you mean the compiler for the PBS files (the text files you were reffering too)
I already tried recompiling with that.
http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/ruby19.html#13

Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS

It's very likely the cause. This is what I meant with the notation String#[].

Post by: Blizzard on August 02, 2012, 05:11:38 pm
Technically you could try aliasing or completely overriding that method and replacing the call with String#getbyte.

class String
  def [](index)
    return self.getbyte(index)
  end
end


That might solve your problem, but generally it is not recommended to change implementations of the standard library since you can mess up other stuff.
Title: Re: [XP] RMX-OS
Post by: khkramer on August 03, 2012, 08:34:36 am
Tried it, but it was incompatible with too many scripts.
Converting some strings to integers by adding .to_i did the trick.
However the next error has nothing to do with RMX-OS I think so should I pm it to you? (or post in an ARC thread)

Ok blizz!!
about 4 months ago.. i asked about instanced zones. you told me "bad idea, Read back to find out why ..cuz i forgot really"..
So i just finished reading..and my eyes are bleeding...and i didn't see an information.. perhaps due to the eyes bleeding :P..

============REASON FOR THIS POST!!!!==============
is actually nothing to do with that.. i just wanted to cry a little.

after losing my original, Ive been RE-developing my game. after countless scripts read thru or added..and bugs fixed, or still being delt with... tons of balancing.
I have gotten to the point where i think I'm ready to start building the maps and story events

I fully intend to make this an Online game still...
so here are some of my questions from what I've read or "know" about your system! :D

1. How small/large should i make maps to increase performance / reduce lag? (i found it took forever to load a 500x500 i made offline..unlike RM2k3)
2. How many enemies should i limit to a map or "screen"? (i found in testing 8 clustered enemies lagged my pc quite a bit on occasion using BABS)
3. If I build all maps and story events..how easy is it to implement you're OS to a semi completed game? should i try to get it working before hand? (im not prepared for it quite yet.. no other computer to even act as a server for the time being)


Thanks :P

There are script calls to disable/hide player names and the chatbox. Just look them up in the manual.
I'm not sure if the name sprites are displayed on top of everything. As far as I remember, they are displayed in the same viewport as the character sprites. Could you make a screenshot of the problem?

100x100 are pretty big, but still have a decent loading time. You shouldn't go over 200x200. If you use ARC instead of the normal RMXP, the performance should be much better either way.

2. How many enemies should i limit to a map or "screen"? (i found in testing 8 clustered enemies lagged my pc quite a bit on occasion using BABS)


Clustered enemies will cause more lag, yes. But there is a difference when you are using RMX-OS. Blizz-ABS can't fully use the integrated anti-lag system because all enemies need to be updated. I haven't tried it fully, but 30 enemies should work fine. That combined with a 100x100 map, I think it should work good enough. If it doesn't, as I already mentioned, you can always use ARC instead of RMXP for the final product.

Getting RMX-OS running isn't complicated, but if you add it at the very end, you may have to redesign some things as you will realize that some thing won't work well online as they do online (e.g. if you have a special quest with some switches, etc.). You won't be able to fully test your game unless you get it online. Technically you can create the whole game offline and then add the online system as the very end. Just keep in mind that you will need a lot of testing at once if you add it at the end as opposed to a bit of testing after implementing each feature/quest/map/whatever online right away. It's really up to you. Maybe you should at least test it out to see if RMX-OS is really what you want.

Corpse Party was an awesome game. Making some sort of fan spin-off or something?

Thanks Blizz!
I'll probably stick to a 60x60 or 100x100..if the lag is anything like offline.. those will be fine.. basically no loading time.

As for the online play:
I haven't given much info on it i guess. But i want a game similar to Zelda. Somewhat linear but open world..since there is a leveling system..some areas would have high level monsters. i don't intend a mainstream MMO questing system or grind..none of the "Lets grab the '!' and not even read the quest!!"
similarly to my beloved WoW, or Aion, Rift, xXinsert mmo hereXx, so on so forth.

I want dungeons like Zelda too.. puzzles. I want there to be Trash..similar to common MMOS...basically not pushovers. I also intend a "Trinity" system but not to the extent that most main stream games are at. I want bosses to be somewhat "tactical" using environment or strengths / weaknesses of the players/classes (maybe also similar to many mmos + Zelda + Soul Reaver)
To limit a dungeon to an "instanced" area would protect the mechanics of the dungeon. That's why i was interested
I mean...imagine your in a group and you've worked your way thru.. and your trying to defeat the boss and some higher level and his band of jerk faces run in and smash it.
you feel no accomplishment ..and you will get bored.. cuz ..if more than just a small community begins playing ..this is a sure fire FACT that will happen.
And truthfully i can think of no other way around it. if i make the game global to all users on the server...switches could be abused and it would remove the puzzles purpose too.
if the dungeon is supposed to have 4 people and 2 need to lift a
