Tried logging in today at the set time I mentioned in the other thread.
It says I'm logged in but I wasn't logged in since I crashed yesterday and couldn't be bothered to wait for the reset - it turns out the reset hasn't happened so it still declares me logged in preventing me joining.


As for events, I was going to finish adding the exits to SS_Astaroth and add npcs in the locations where they should appear in. Dialogue/quests can appear after they have been set up.

Obviously the lbaexpanded world froze again. And the connection were not reset because of that.

Do you remember if you were in lbaexpandedwhen you crashed? If so do you remember what you were doing?
I suspect this have something to do with monsters. Where you killing monsters or approaching them?

What about Polaris? Was he with you? (he also appeared in the connected list)

I currently do not have time to investigate more but I will try to find some time this weekend.

I clicked "Change World" and the game white-screened (aka. crashed).
I was near some NPCs in LBAexpanded where I switched in, so its a possibility but I never even saw LBAexpanded before it crashed.

After reloading the game I've crashed again when using the "Change World" button, its definitely dodgy so as a work around I'm just closing the client to switch worlds.
_______

I might not be on, at the weekend as I said I'd meet up with my brother in town and probably crash at his place; who knows.
Seeing as nothing is happening between now and the weekend I think I'll try and make some progress on Colozen development.

I think I must have crashed somewhere there, when changing worlds. I do remember crashing once, because the video didn't load when entering LBAexpanded.

Also all the starting information appears on LBAexpanded, ideally that only wants to display once so you don't have to go through all the videos before gameplay. Its only minor, but should stop after say completing the first quest to prevent minor annoyances of always being forced to see it.

Disclaimer if still needed later on could be a slow flash of text over the display; kinda like how in some games it shows you've entered a new zone/stage.
______

Idea: icons for worlds showing which content is required for legal play.
Example. LBAexpanded would have a LBA1 icon, while LBA2 would have LBA2.. Colozen would have 2 icons.

Maybe even the disclaimer information could be where you select the worlds. The icons could be an indicator for which content is needed or for what content the user lacks to visit such a world; kinda like DLC restricted zones in some games.

Well I suspect you both froze when trying to connect to lbanetexpanded because the server was already frozen.

Now the question is when did it freeze and why. So what we ned to find out is who connected last and could play before it froze.

PS: yes good idea for the disclaimer and video thing. For now what you can do is keep pressing the ESC key to skip all of them.

Hi guys,

From the suggestion of Bot13 I added an event calendar to the website.
There is 3 types of event: official, world related, and user event

Any registered user will be able to create is own event on the website.
The website will show you a small calendar as well a list of coming up events on the right side.
You can get a detaile view by clicking on the calendar or any event of the list.
I also provided an RSS feed for those interested.

You will also be able to see the coming events on the lbanet patcher page.


Thanks to leoboe who took care of the deisgn of the calendar component and did a great job like usual.



PS: I also created an event for this Thursday from 8 to 11pm CET, let see how many people we can gather

Hi
I am not sure to understand your question.
You mean you did not succeed create a new event?
You need to be login to the website for that.
Not sure what you mean by notification for email? There is no email notification for the user created event if it is what you mean?

I've set Sunday (weekly) as a day for development for Colozen so if anybody wants to ask questions or suggestions in real-time then you can do so without the worry of causing any trouble

Contact me on Google+ (Hangouts)
https://plus.google.com/109304191138...90/posts?hl=en

Ingame on LBAnet
http://www.lbanet.net/

Or.. if you can't or don't want to use either of the above then leave a message in the Colozen thread.
http://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=15546
______

The advantage of constant feedback/discussion means:
It helps motivate me,
choose what should be next on the agenda (I'll have a list - you can decide which you think I should focus on first),
suggestions and questions can be answered (even about WIP if you want).

Looks like multiple donations don't add up to a total sum from the donor but they get listed separately.

The teleport take you to the good island, but you end drowning in water upon entering.
The main world and focus until now was LBAExpended, but it is not available now.

By the way, why is that ?

Hi guys,

As you have seen progress are slow currently. Basically I changed job a month ago and I am now very busy in my new working environment. This plus my family give me very little time to work on lbanet. But dont worry I am still making progress bits by bits, it will just take much longer...

To answer your questions:
- we know about wrong teleports spawns. They were like this in original game because you are suppose to arrive there with the boat so you should not drown.

- i cant give a date for lba2 characters, I simply did not dig into that at all for now and I do not know how complicated it would be to decipher the lba2 format.

- the lbaExpanded world is currently down because it makes the whole server freeze. I did not find the cause of that yet.

- I did not find a way to group the donations in the plugin for now

I tought I was clear in my post before.
Its not because there is no update that there is no progress, its just going slow.
And because of that I can not give a date for the next release.
