Have your router forward the ports specified in the configuration files to the machine that's hosting them. Then change the char-server's IP in the char_local.conf and the map-server's IP in map_local.conf to be your public IP. You can get it from your router or a website (like this one: http://whatismyipaddress.com/).

You don't have the same magic invocations that we do on the official server.

The basic skill was removed and three other skills put in it's place (emote, trade, party).

Oh, ok that explains those other npcs ^_^. I found a file called magic.conf.template and tailored it; however, it still doesnt seem to work =\

Don't do it that way. Restore that file (git checkout conf/magic.conf.template) then run build_spells.sh. It'll create another script file. Edit the invocations there. Then run build_magic.sh again.

The IP will be fine. If you want a nicer name, then you'll need to get a DNS address and have it point to the IP.

what exactly do i change in the spell script?
i get what looks like this (just a bit from the middle, from what i can tell all spells are refrenced, including ones i've never seen.

Code: Select all

's/"#T00"/"#T00"/;'\
's/"#T01"/"#T01"/;'\
's/"#L00"/"#L00"/;'\
what part of these do i change, i know these particular ones are parum gole and lum.

Change the second one to the desired invocation (i.e. s/#T00/(desired invoc)/)
