In progress:

- additional functions regarding user.ini

- Ingame drop-spoil-chest-npcid patch regarding latest data.

mb more to come, I had these on mind

- Ingame drop-spoil-chest-npcid patch regarding latest data.

 

This generated with the help of the server drop chances would be pretty sweet. With some dedication one could probably make a small application to do this automatically for the whole file to be read, changed and saved.

Minor client patch suggestion. Remove Eula-e.dat file. This causes the client not to show the pop up with the eula before selecting a server and no one ever reads this anyways.

 

The same can be done with obscene-e.dat file jfyi.

Do you guys consider providing these files in default installation in case they are extensively tested and polished? Colorchar+onscreen msg, mob lvl hack, config: zoom, mob name distance, no fog etc, no right click, no tracking etc.

 

I would like the anticheat take care of this as well to protect these files so you can't client side hack treasures/wallhack/negative zoom scouting.

 

It could also mean noone can temper with network rates and tickrate clientside or do anything not officially allowed to use.

 

In that case it would be also necessary to give people some options like check/uncheck for onscreen dmg.

 

I can only imagine how much additional work this could bring but i would love polished and complete experience of l2 without hassle.

Is there any team decision what you will provide in default installation and how far you go with protecting files? For example do you let people use 10k name view range, see mob lvl + agro (provided file without treasure hack).

 

Will you provide colored systemmsg-e.dat for different taste?

- color chat only

- color chat + on screen msg

- color chat + on screen msg+dmg

 

What about drop spoil patch pulled from db with correct rate settings? 

 

Additionally are you plan your own db for drop/spoil with map and raidboss info on website?

 

Is it for example possible to add into client new macro icons? Would you in that case provide them in default installation etc.

Details will be released at a  later stage.

No but feel free to make one yourself and share it, or wait until someone else shares one.

There is no such thing, all drop/spoil patches are just reading client side info.

We will implement a drop/spoil DB in our wiki once we're done with the majority of the work for the server.

This is also a client side mod which we will not supply by default.

Hi Lonely thanks for answering my questions

 

colorchat: I would gladly create color chat from scratch that means coloring vanilla file from hb installation to make 100% sure there are no bugs. It would also be no problem to come up with 3 variants i mention ... but i don't really feel like doing too much work if it would not be distributed at default with some launcher options i could just download something good enough and available and live with it.

 

dropspoil: I know this info comes from client.

 

macroicons: Why not if this is possible that would be very cool addition.

 

I can understand i can do these things for myself but why should normal player mod his client so its more modern i think lot of people would appreciate such things in launcher as options. If you want broader audience you should work as much hard as possible to make good 1st impression so things like color chat should be default in my opinion.
