Hello fellow Players of Roat Pkz, we've currently implemented a new IPB forum down below.


We encourage you to move topics over that you'd like to keep since the old forums will be disabled in less than 90 days, and will be inaccessible

If you have any suggestions or questions please post them below.

Hello everyone, in this thread I'll be keeping track of my current projects and updates to the server (this doesn't include all updates to the server - instead just the content that I'm working on). I may not list every small change I do, as some updates are not recognizable to the player. I might also skip certain weeks were I'm busy with school, etc. If you have suggestions, please go to here.

List of updates from new to old:

Week #1
  • Cleaning up of old and unused character attributes.
    (Technical detail: this should make logging in slightly faster by reducing useless attributes that were previously being saved and read in each time you logged).
  • Some small animation fixes
  • Player instance saving. This is a system that I've been trying to get working although it's still incomplete atm.
    (Technical detail: this will take advantage of the large amount of RAM we have by using extra memory but make logging faster)
  • Redesign of server-sided item data structure.
    (Technical detail: I've been able to completely restructure how all item data is held within the memory by using a hash data structure, as a result the complexity went from being linear to constant. e.g. one of the methods that was used to get and total item bonuses would take 4,290,000 operations at worse-case O(n^3). It now takes 129 at worse-case. This method and other methods that used this old system were extremely slow. The greatest impact will be with item switching, as this method and others were called EVERYTIME you switched an item, it should now be at it's near theoretical maximum speed! (apart from your individual ping to the server's location)
  • Login flood protection.
    (Technical detail: this is to prevent attacks and large amounts of multi-logging)

note: even though these things are ready not all of them are in-game yet.

Week #2

Using noted poisons on non-noted has been fixed.

note: Alex is currently working on making the source more efficient before working on in-game content.
