Darkhelm

So... me and some others have been looking into the code of The Mana World.

It is stated that Krukan should drop a Darkhelm with the slim chance of 0,02% (https://github.com/themanaworld/tmwa-se ... er_100.txt)

However, the Darkhelm is stated as "Unreleased item" here: (https://github.com/themanaworld/tmwa-se ... b_head.txt)

My question is: Does Krukan and will Krukan ever drop a Darkhelm?

I know this from Wushin, krukan will drop darkhelm. Its unreleased in the sense no one has obtained it in the game yet.

No mob (and no script) drop DarkHelm (I did a recursive grep on /world/map). Furthermore, to make the dark helm work we would need to modify tmwa to add a way to get "bAtkRange" (it uses readparam but bAtkRange is not a param)

On the test server, the item Darkhelm does work, that's mostly why I've been wondering.

Okay. Do you possibly know if the Darkhelm will come in-game soon or not?

Code: Select all

bonus bAtkRange, -((readparam(bAtkRange)/2));
This is supposed to make the dark helm reduce your attack range by half. But the problematic part is readparam(bAtkRange) because bAtkRange is not a param so there is no way to get its value. Basically it does bonus bAtkRange, -( 0/2 );. To make it work we would need to add a new builtin (script function) to get its value.

I see. I guess that's kinda hard to do?

No but if it's only for one item I don't think it's worth making a new builtin. So it's up to wushin to decide what to do

I'd agree with that, but why add the item to TMW if it's probably not even going to be released?

Because if we waited for things to be finished before adding to the game then tmw would have no content. It is a perpetual WIP

Okay, that makes sense.

How about that wouldn't be the only gear that changes attack reach ? We should do some googles that increase it.
Or I'd say this is a good idea for an assassin class : high Agi, high Str, high Chn and an extended melee reach to beat up most monsters.
