  3. Hey guys i'm new to 718 servers how do i run the source in eclipse? I get a Error_Game_Js5connect when trying to launch the client I am also getting the following error when i try to run the server Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/rs/Launcher : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 is anyone able to try and help me out with these noobie problems I am having?
  4. Updates Re-worked Lethine to Ariane including new model. Basic inventory, Basic action bar and Basic character details. Vulkan™ API for fast processing heavy graphics. What is vulkan? https://developer.nvidia.com/Vulkan JSON serilization & de-serilization. Region data and such are stored on a JSON file and player save which will later on be stored to a web host by SQL and loaded there. Created a proper Entity class structure: Entity > Player/NPC > .... Basic interface system created with interface moving. Huge graphical improvements as well as optimizations (used to run 4k SSAA 20-26 fps. Now 57-60 with my current graphics card device). Motion/Animation logic has been re-constructed, animations are not played instantly they have properly timed transitions from animation to next animation, this gives a incredible nice feel of a realistic character. Added dynamic sky/weater. This includes a time system based on the Host PC's clock (day,night time) also weather system contains raining, snow, storms andlighting. Added dynamic water. Action bar has new UI now matching to the inventory. NPCs have far better artifactual intelligence, however the new Entity class isn't implemented on the NPCs so that is something to come still. https://gyazo.com/7dc0a20f127f017899126d228abe03f6 Has now a region system to load names, songs, and other important data that we need to store. This also contains a dynamic region system. Added a tooltip system for items this same tool tip system can be used for skills to send a temporary interface when triggered/un-triggered. Started a really advanced pet system where player's personal pet can even fight with player at the same time!? Dynamic lights added. There is still more misc updates done that are not listed here, this is the first stuff that came to my mind right now writing this update reply. How Asteral looks now. 4K SSAA @ 60fps. Using Nvidia GTX 1060 Latest youtube video is here (the video's older than the image above). Re-worked Ariane video... Next to expect.... A flawless motion-driven combat that can detect exact location of the hit on the target's box. By this way we can create ultra realistic physics and bleeding FX , knockback motions for example. The motion-driven combat has already been started and is under work. Full inventory. Sound system.
  5. Yesterday
  6. I like the second most.
  7. Find out whats the main class in the client. If you're using a bat file it should be there, in some clients it could be Launcher.java, Client.java (starts with uppercase) and so on.
  8. First you need to add it to the cache then create a custom combat script to see examples there are others in the package e.g TormentedDemonCombat the special npcs that use different random attack patterns are there.
  9. in Shop.java whatever it was called there is a method that it adds 995, amount just search for 995 and set the addMoneyPouch w/e it is there.
  10. I agree with Journal, the first one is easily the best of the three. I'd say the third one could look better if the background was changed and increase the font size and bold the text in the navigation bar.
  11. we've been working hard check out our latest patch notes here! https://necrotic.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?fid=33 In other news, April boss is going to be dropping soon make sure your around for it!
  12. The first one, for sure. There's not much to say on it, it's a nice, simple theme. The second one is strictly amateurish. The banner design is very generic, just a simple brush slapped on with text and tweaked blending options. The font is uninspired and doesn't look modern at all. The colors are also just an inferior version to the current dark theme, it's much harsher on the eyes. Steven sums up my feelings on the third one.
  13. Before anything, thank you for a well reasoned response. I understand you guys are busy, I do not mean to imply that every single change should be put through swiftly and singlehandedly by you and Ikiliki. As I elaborated on in a reply to Arixa, and what I should have been more careful to stress in the original topic, is that my biggest concern regarding admins is one of organization and management. Organization is obviously touched on below in the post, so management is the big talking point here. I assume that in regards to the IPB update you are specifically referring to the amount of dead BBCode and fucked up formatting there is around the boards, Tutorials/Resources being the examples cited in my original post, and the awards, correct? If that is the case, the fact of the matter is that according to a quick google search, and correct me if I'm wrong, IPB 4.1 was out a long time ago and there is literally zero reason for it to have taken as long as it has to have been fixed. Arixa even commented on the laziness regarding the development of these fixes. In regards to the awards.. I am glad to hear that this is a matter already being addressed, but this, along with: are pretty good examples of what I mean regarding there being little engagement between the staff and the community. Perhaps I am discussing this in bad faith, but after browsing the boards I would expect this to be in (news and announcements, tweaks, and web development) there is no way for people to know what you guys have been working on. We have vague ideas as to what is "planned", but no legitimate progress to keep track of and no specifics being discussed. This is fine and dandy and all in a community function in high activity already, but it very much leads to the dead and uncaring vibe that's very easy to get from the current state of affairs. Realistically, what boards should and shouldn't be merged should be discussed in this thread or a thread of it's own. I have offered very sound reasons to merge, remove, create, and rename the boards I mentioned and I would like to have a discussion about it so that we can reach not a compromise, but the most logically sound conclusion instead of just leaving it to some "behind the scenes" affairs. It is my understanding that there has been discussion regarding this in the past, but Ikiliki along with Ziek have made these changes sound as though they were made very begrudgingly. Changes should not be made begrudgingly. If you do not agree with the suggestion put forth by your community, majority rule or not, then you should dispute it until there's a mutual understanding that's been made. This is nit picky, but realistically it seems very uncaring to leave any anniversary banner or logo up for over five months. I didn't say it should be removed the 24th, I said that keeping it up for such long periods of time very understandably gives an impression of laziness. Fortunately, and why I don't particularly care much about this specifically, most people won't know when the actual anniversary date is unless they look at the threads specifically announcing it. This is an extremely valid point and one I have been racking my head around. I understand the reasoning behind this, but to be frank, I feel an official Discord is just more beneficial to a growing community due to the convenience as I outlined in my original post. Realistically, the shoutbox should probably be something for quick help, light discussion, and new members. It's less organized, is more inconvenient, and offers considerably less interaction than the official Discord. I understand where you're coming from, but I think this is another example of something that reflects poorly on the state of engagement from the staff. These shouldn't be problems that exist whether or not people are busy for x time period because these are problems that have very clearly existed for a long time with the exception of people not entering the SotM. There has been ample time to create content, encourage people to share their methodology, clean up the stickies, etc. I completely understand where you're coming from with having extremely basic skills when it comes to digital art, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but what is wrong with that is that you're not the only person who feels that way yet we still have zero incentive offered by staff to create tutorials or resources with the exception of people giving offhand comments of "gee this board probably needs something more than just SotM". As a whole, and I feel I did not illustrate this properly in my original post, is that there is simply little public action being undertaken by the staff. Again, I thank you very much for offering a well reasoned response and taking the time to discuss this with me.
  14. i like the idea of a theme that looks like the home page, but imo that theme doesn't look very much like the homepage so far. If anything you should just make a forum theme you like the redesign the rest of the RL application to match.
  15. Edit: Changed my mind lol, 3rd one.
  16. None of these themes are guaranteed to be published live or become the next theme. I've had a handful of themes I've modified and worked on and just ceased updates, if any of these themes are to become the only primary theme which would you choose? vBulletin Red: 2. vBulletin Bluefox: 3. RuneLocus Remaster (homepage clone, WIP)
  17. To start both Ikiliki and I are currently extremely busy; this is our busy month with work, school and other social gatherings. As seen in Tweaks I've been consistently updating the forums in the past few months. We're in a bad set of time to be pushing updates though, with us being busy and IPB build 4.2 being around the corner... There isn't much we should be updating that won't break when 4.2 hits. A couple days since last posting of boards is hardly what I consider inactive and it is not fair to include a board (VIP+) that regular members cannot post in. @Droxcy and I can work on this when he returns; I believe he's also said he's extremely busy. Again feedback for @Droxcy, as much as I would love partake in Digital Art competitions I am extremely basic skilled when it comes to digital designing, I have a very basic knowledge of Photoshop and other similar programs. The actual date is 2007-11-23 there is realistically no point in having a banner display the 23rd of November and be removed the 24th. Trophies and Medals is my secondary project to work along with Awards, it will include automation (unlike Awards) and will give trophies/medals/points based on counters such as posting, reputations and join dates. It is currently in work in progress and is not yet live. I know @Ikiliki has great concern about using Discord, not only is it not currently able to be integrated into forums to use as a chat system but actually will require the chatbox be pulled offline due to inactivity. I believe at one point you could host an iFrame for it and have it on the site itself but Discord disabled this. --- I'm sure Ikiliki can give a more in depth and detailed response later, I'll take a look over which boards need to be merged with extreme caution. Current projects managed by me in priority order: Matching light/dark theme for RuneLocus forums and RuneLocus website (WORK IN PROGRESS). Trophies and Medals/Awards additions. Social media (Facebook/Discord).
  18. If it was an assumption then I would have said "read the topic instead of posting based on summaries", not asking whether you did or not so I know if I need to edit my original post to add some clarity due to the fact that there have been three people who brushed the organization suggestion under the rug and two of them legitimately did not read my post. Good passive aggressive response made under the impression I have no humility, though. It's not a matter of people "thinking" we're inactive, it's the fact we present our inactive boards in majority instead of compacting things into a layout that's befitting a smaller community. Whether you want to admit it or not, the forums is inactive. Everyone is in agreement on this, even Ikiliki, so it's about presenting ourselves in the best way possible if you want to gather new people. Also, not once have I ever stated that reorganizing the boards is going to pave our way to victory and revitalize the community tenfold or even at all. The point of reorganizing the boards in a logical fashion that creates a good presentation of RuneLocus is that it offers comfort that people aren't joining a dead community or one that barely has any action. The fact of the matter is that people who are browsing forums and considering whether or not they should join one are more likely to join an active community than an inactive one, there is no way around this and to deny this is purely disingenuous, and the point of my suggestion regarding the boards with specific layout I presented is to avoid this so that we're not just a forum people come to dump their copy and paste RSPS advertisements on.
  19. it was shit
  20. what was wrong with last month's?
  21. I did read it. I saw your reasoning. Instead of assuming that others didn't read it, maybe you should reread it and see some of the flaws in your logic. Just because inactive sections are first, that doesn't mean people will think we are inactive. There are these things called scrollbars that people can use to navigate the page. In addition to that, we have this sidebar with all the recent posts. People don't go to the forum index looking for new posts, they go to the specific section they are looking for or the sidebar. The forum is layed out in a flow similar to every other forum on the internet. Official stuff, General Stuff, Stuff pertaining to forum topic, stuff pertaining to offtopic. I'm pretty sure the forums get redesigned every few months and it never has any effect, not even a minimal effect. A bunch of the community members came together and agreed on this one, and I don't think it's going anywhere.
  22. much pretty wow a lot of improvement from last months
  23. I don't mean to sound rude, but did you read the original topic or only the summary? I'm starting to wonder if the people who say that they don't see how reorganization will solve anything even read my reasons for wanting to do it LOL.
  24. +1 but as others said, i don't seem how re-organizing the boards will solve anything. It's not like people are too lazy to scroll down. I like the other suggestions though! And as steven pointed out, there isn't any reason "not" to try any of the suggestions, meaning it's really a risk free project that doesn't seem very time or effort consuming. Only requires initiative.
  25. Then add a facepalm smiley. I don't mean to sound rude, and while I respect the hard work you both have put into the forum over the years, if you have legitimate disagreement with a change that people are suggesting then you should talk it out instead of giving into majority rule. I do suggest a reorganization and I provide a multitude of reasons for it, if that's deserving of a facepalm or gets disregarded because people have done it in the past and it didn't produce the results that people promised then I feel that's extremely lacking in forethought. I suggest nothing with the motive that "this is going to increase activity in large quantities immediately", I suggest everything with the idea that regaining any amount of stature as a community is a step by step process and before anything you must cover the fundamentals. The unfortunate truth is that the current state of the organization of boards lacks any logical motive and is fitting for large communities, not small ones, which ours now falls into the category of. I look forward to a more developed response and I hope you enjoy your holiday.
  26. I'll read through all of this tomorrow or the day after tomorrow when I have time. It's Kingsnight/Kingsday over here, so I won't be here much the upcoming day. I haven't read anything in the thread, but before I do, I must admit that I'm losing motivation to even keep this forum up. Not because of inactivity, but because I've had @Cart spend a shitload of hours dramatically re-organising the forums at least 8 times over the past 3 years. Not because Cart or I wanted to do so, but because the community requested it and said it'd help increase activity. I don't know if this thread includes a part about re-organising forums, but if it does, I'm going to add a massive facepalm smiley to the footer of the forum for the next following 5 days. No jokes. Anyway, keep the ideas, suggestions, etc. coming. I'll read this after Kingsday (the dutch national holiday) :-)
  27. Great server with active gambling, lots of bosses, often gets updated and great community! Come join us!
