Re: Future of IRC Network

What about matrix? It has great support for bridges. So you can bridge the existing channels. Also matrix is free, open source and decentralized (and better than ever before with spaces having landed (https://matrix.org/blog/2021/05/17/the- ... space-beta))

Re: [REQ] Another alternative client (Difficulty 5/5 Team-Sized)

Hi, would be replaced by something like: (following code is pseudocode since i don't have experience coding c++/qt yet) void GameClient::authenticate(const QByteArray &token) { // Send in the security token if servertype == tales{ tales::authenticate(const QByteArray &token); } if servertype...

Re: [REQ] Another alternative client (Difficulty 5/5 Team-Sized)

The protocol.h is mostly copied from the manaserv code base and ideally should stay that way. MessageIn and MessageOut are also very manaserv specific. What you probably want to do is to separate the network handling from the view model functionality in the *Client classes. Then the hercules lib cou...

Re: [REQ] Another alternative client (Difficulty 5/5 Team-Sized)

a. I believe tales-client uses an outdated version of our own client-data files. So it should mostly work. The Mana Server does not differ between client and server data. The files are shared. Thus the format only shares the XML structure, but the content will differ. But the parsing logic is fairl...

Re: [REQ] Another alternative client (Difficulty 5/5 Team-Sized)

The best way would probably to develop a lib which implements the network API and populates the models of SoT. The code is generally designed as a library (and even built as one). So one would not need to fork everything but could benefit from a shared code base.

Re: ManaPlus is unplayable on Android

With Source of Tales we attempted a more mobile friendly UI (Qt Quick based) (see http://www.sourceoftales.org/screenshots.html for screenshots). Since the Mana and Manaplus interface was started based on the guichan library, porting it would be a huge effort. With Qt Quick we managed to get a fairl...

Re: Quasselcore for IRC

Matrix bridges the Freenode IRC and is quite stable nowadays: https://riot.im/app/#/room/#freenode_#e ... matrix.org

Maybe that would be a simpler solution?

Re: Discord anyone?

better solution (such as Mumble) For Mumble everybody needs to join the same server... So communities are scattered across multiple servers... Discord does a good and unique job at providing an excellent free service. Of course an open source solution which provides a similar service would be cool....

Re: Looking for some old friends...

Hm. Ablu usually hangs around on IRC. "Ablu" on freenode (but not on the TMW channels anymore).

He will probably still remember you and be happy to see you!

Re: TMW's goal

We developed Manaserv in parallel which was supposed to have more action-oriented gameplay. I did quite a lot of work to make it more SoM-like and got quite far. I had targetless combat, area damage, pushback and stun working pretty well. But then I got a job and had no more time to maintain that b...

Re: TMW being a game engine

I agree, a new engine is really needed... Why not create a new server from scratch? Why not call it manaserv?

Re: ManaPlus for Fedora 21

I created an official package for Fedora of manaplus. Just install the manaplus (or even better the tmw package) and use that on fedora 21. In case the package is outdated file a bug against it on the fedora bugtracker (I no longer maintain it). That package is automatically rebuilt when dependencie...
