Dumpster Fire / Greetings from a former SR-guildy...
« Last post by DanseMacabre on January 17, 2021, 04:39:04 PM »
Hello there! Yours truly is a blast from the past. I wss in SR back in the old days when Gaap was leader. Had a shit-tonne of fun raiding & gearing out my main. My toon’s name was Skurje.

If I recall correctly, we were on Permafrost server in EQ2 when I parted ways with SR. My ingame friendship with a gal in the guild turned into a RL fling. It eventually didn’t work out (which is usually how these things go), & I quit SR without much of an explanation. It was awkward & uncomfortable, & my departure with no reason upset everyone at the time.

Always felt bad about that ~ SR had become my gaming family but when you mix your gaming with affairs of the heart, everyone goes full fucktard sooner or later (as did I).

I got on with another raiding guild for a time but always felt heartache when I’d see my ex-fam from SR zooming through whichever zone we were hitting. I had such great memories & I don’t think you can ever have that same level of fierce devotion & loyalty to one another anywhere else like we had in SR.

Eventually, I got over my horrifying MMO addiction & quit gaming altogether. Had to make bank & pay bills, & camping mobs or random-spawn doodads for 3 sleepless days & nights that trigger quests for supersexy must-have gear had to become a happy memory. Weirdly enough, Sony gave me a lifetime ban after I made an ill-fated decision to return. I’d bought a new gaming computer & some fancy state-of-the-art $750 graphics card which was brand-spanking new, & apparently the driver didn’t jive with the game’s platform. I was banned & accused of somehow hacking the server so my toon could move faster than the game allowed (or some such thing). I honestly never quite understood what I supposedly was accused of having done & Sony’s customer service people were total asshats who wouldn’t explain it to me or let me appeal the ban. TBH I needed the bridge back to EQ burnt, otherwise I’d have slipped back into the addiction again LOL! But I did miss all my friends & was sad to never say proper goodbyes to my old SR fam.


Seeing Silent Redemption lives on makes me happy! From on old school SR member from days past, I wish you all great success, phat lootz, & buttloads of fuck-all fun makin sexy-sex talk with hawt toons!

Carry on.
Skurje

Hey guys! I got something around to this. Let's get few things out of the way and then I'll explain stuff.

@Adrahil: color-coded names are not a bad idea but it requires to display a legend to show which color and which class. I'll like to reduce memory time each time a user gets on the website. I could get creative with it and doesn't require users to memorize which color/which class. Although, that's something I need to think about with UI design. The player names already have a hyperlink with style rules. Throwing color-coded in would get messy.

@Rexa: I can definitely add a class column on overview rpp page. I can even go further and include them in player page, too.

@Everyone: I did something with forum custom fields long time ago and I didn't get around to it until now. I created two fields: 'Class' and 'Primary Alt'. We could be more creative with custom fields if you'd like. Example: Deity, Primary Alt Class, Levels, AA counts, etc. This step requires you to input the information in your account settings info in the forum.

As for the roster page, I'm sure we can come up with something but I don't have a set of requirements to go with. We can show a list of rosters (active, retired, casuals, etc.) or just (active). The roster page should be public display while RPP page is limited to registered user and few specific membergroups only.

Or, we can do both. Building a roster page AND update RPP page to include class and primary alt.

This morning, I managed to whip up a nice query from active raiders with SMF profile/custom fields. Here's the test page:
https://www.silentredemption.net/testroster.php

If you see that your info has not been inputted, you can go ahead and update your account settings info. Then, refresh the 'testroster' page. You should be able to see new changes you made.

After a set of requirements has been determined, I can apply them to new roster page and/or the rpp pages.

Another way to do it on RPP page is each class is a different color. So if monks are yellow "Lisard" name would be yellow.

I'm resurrecting this thread. Since we have a proper RPP page now, we can just add a column corresponding to people's classes. No? It can then be sorted by alpha order if someone wishes, and everyone's classes will be grouped together anyhow.

General Discussion / Re: A Couple Video Games I made

Oh Yeah , I tried out Unreal and Unity some before trying out this software.  I guess I liked this better because it was simpler and cheaper to be able to make Nintendo-type games, and maybe more for a beginner.

Unity seems like a good one if you have a team, because I got weighed down by the amount of resources and money needed to pay for them. Like 3D resources are more copyrighted etc.  It is a great software for a REALLY good looking game, unlike this. This is more like graffiti lol, but much better for someone with little coding skill like me.  I'd like to try Unity again though, especially if it gets easier to code it.

I made some fixes to a couple annoying issues in version 1.1 too:

1. Fixed an area on level 2 volcano where it was inconveniently hard to reach a piece of fruit.

2. Fixed some zoning issues where if you died, it would reset you near the upgrade levels. Now you respawn in a safer place at the beginning.

If you've never played with Unity, you can actually draw the hit boxes frame by frame for animations.  It's pretty easy (tho time consuming) to do.
