EOSERV 0.7.0 and WebCP 4
Author Message
Post #199734 EOSERV 0.7.0 and WebCP 4

EOSERV 0.7.0 and WebCP 4 have been released today. EOSERV Windows binaries and WebCP are available on the Downloads page. Source code is available from the download archive.

(Make sure you read and fully understand the license before re-distributing EOSERV. If you build EOSERV yourself with different dependencies, you may be bound by the terms of different licenses.)

Older versions of EOSERV will be removed from the downloads page shortly. Their source code may still be obtained via SVN under their respective tags.

Please ensure you run the 0.6.2_to_0.7.0.sql script in the upgrade directory to update your database format if upgrading EOSERV from an older version.

Also please take note of the new install.sql file in WebCP. It must be executed manually if you wish to use the database rate-limiting driver.

EOSERV 0.6.2 -> 0.7.0 changes:

Versrions of depedencies

  • SQLite3 3.8.6 -> 3.12.1 (now statically linked)
  • MariaDB Client Library 2.0.0 -> 2.2.2
  • pthreads-win32 2.9.0 -> libwinpthreads 0.5.0

Breaking changes

  • The way drop rates are calculated was changed. See the announcement for more info.
  • Default hit rate and damage formulas were changed to match the official EO server.
  • The order of arguments 2 and 3 to the RPN '?' (if) operator were flipped.
  • SLN check-ins are disabled by default. The official service is discontinued and running the code is very unstable.
  • exp variable in TPN and EO+ Stat* rules/actions is renamed to "experience", and exp is now the mathematical exp() function.

New features

  • Spike damage is implemented. (bug #5)
  • HP and TP drains are implemented. (bug #6)
  • Bard spell is implemented and instruments no longer do damage. (bug #8)
  • Party list HP and level are now kept up to date.
  • Innkeepers, shops and skillmasters can be specified by vendor ID rather than NPC ID. (bug #3)
  • $dress (and $dress2) commands allows admins to temporary apply graphical equipment overrides to players.
  • $dnpcs command clears the map of spawned NPCs. (bug #310)
  • $snpc now takes an additional speed option.
  • Chat logs and reports are taken and stored on the admin message board (viewable via the $board command). They can optionally also be stored in the database via the LogReports option, viewable via WebCP.
  • $unjail command allows admins to unjail characters without requiring full $warp privilege.
  • $hide/$show commands can now show/hide individual features: admin (admin icon), online (online status), warp (warp bubbles), npc (npc aggression), and invisible (visibility).
  • Admin hide status is stored in the database. (bug #30)
  • $duty command (enabled by the UseDutyAdmin option) allows admins to hot-swap between their admin and non-admins characters, and to use moderation commands on their non-admin character.
  • NoInteract system can be used to prevent admins from interacting with the game in certain ways.
  • Admin 'unlimitedweight' privilege allows admins to not be restricted by weight.
  • Custom guild ranks can be enabled via the GuildCustomRanks option. They work the same way as the official EO server. Existing players without a custom rank will retain a dynamically updating rank title until their rank is changed.
  • NPC speeds can be adjusted via the SpawnNPCSpeed config option.
  • New maps and quests can be loaded in to the game via $remap and $request commands. (bug #97)
  • EO+: ResetDaily() action and DoneDaily() rule to implement daily quests.
  • EO+: Roll() action and Rolled() rule to randomize quests.
  • exp and ln functions added to RPN and EO+ Stat* rules/actions.

Improvements

  • NPCs will navigate around corners better when chasing players.
  • Boss-child NPCs will attack innocent bystanders if their boss is attacked.
  • Players are disconnected after 3 failed login attempts. (bug #266)
  • Slightly better action queue timings to minimize lag when walking long distances.
  • Packet sequences are enforced by default, beating trivial packet re-sending and breaking some third-party bots/proxies (configurable with EnforceSequence option).
  • Admins are unhidden if they are demoted below the level to use $hide.
  • Better warning messages for invalid innkeeper data.
  • No more warning messages for missing map files, MaxMap default value increased.
  • Localized strings are now reloaded by $rehash.
  • Database connection is retried up to 10 times before shutting down the server.
  • Database will retry in the case of a lock-wait timeout error. (bug #352)
  • $repub is now silent by default. "$repub announce" may be used to broadcast the old system message.
  • Admin command usage is logged to the console (configurable with LogCommands option).
  • Server will automatically refresh out of sync clients.
  • Less memory is used per NPC instance. :)

Other changes

  • Admins can walk in to warps while using #nowall.
  • Default admin levels changed: $mute = 1, $evacuate = 3, killnpc privilege = 4
  • Makefile build system replaced with CMake. Doxygen build file removed.

Cool update, nice to see so many bug fixes! Do you have any thought on ever bringing back the sln? So many people used it and it's a shame it's not here anymore. it might even encourage a few of the people checking it to post and get involved in the forums

I think Apollo still has it hosted, always forget the website for it though. It just led to people ddosing each other and starting fights here.

You can find it here: http://www.apollo-games.com/SLN/sln.php/

I think the list is mostly maintained manually, but you can add yourself there too. Obviously I don't recommend using EOSERV to check yourself in though. All you need is a script to make a web request like this every 5 minutes:

Have to interject here to say the connection to the SLN I am hosting contains no malicious code. The recommendation to not directly connect is based on Sausage's opinion that an SLN DDoS could cause a relative effect on all connected servers. Though this is highly unlikely due to the lack of evidence proving it can happen and the fact the SLN currently is DDoS protected, you can feel free to connect directly at:

http://www.apollo-games.com/SLN/sln.php/

Whie there are no known exploits and I firmly believe there to be none, I do not take responsibility for anyone that does encounter any issues due to use of this SLN, but I will continue to improve the statistics that it gathers and possibly add more end user garbage.

Hey Sausage I think you didn't finish typing that setence.

Haha, thanks for that. I went to double check and never returned. They retain a dynamically changing rank until their rank is changed.

Not ideal now I think about it, it would've been nicer to lock their rank in the first time they logged back in. Best would've been some database upgrade process.
