Post #205261 Area of Effect?

I'm in the process of porting an on EOSource Server into EOSERV, after a certain point of progression you're supposed to gain access to AoE weapons. I just noticed that wasn't working, and I don't see any configs to incorporate it easily like I could in EOSource (editing a certain unknown value in a pub editor). I also had a config for EOSource that would link certain spell gfx to certain weapons. Is there any way I can still do this in EOSERV?

There is no support for AoE damage in EOSERV, and no plans to support it officially.

Here's an example of how to implement it yourself for melee attacks, but you can use the same idea for magic AoE as well. You'd need to figure out your own scheme for how to specify the configuration for each weapon or whatever you want to do.

As you can see, there's a lot of considerations to make about how it works, regarding the shape of the AoE, where the AoE is centered, and how critical damage is handled.

Vult-r has some very poor instructions on having the "aoe: 3x3 / 5x5" tool-tip show up on weapons in the new v0.1.29 client here: http://www.endless-online.com/deep/deepinfo.html -- I haven't actually tried it myself so I don't know which of the numbers its pointing at is accurate, but your best bet is to probably use a hex editor to set the value.

As far as I can tell 2x2, 4x4 and 6x6 tooltip options make no practical sense, since you'd have to decide how to shift them off-center.

I think so.

The client even works under Linux using Wine now, with no additional configuration - unlike before afaik.
