the cart support is enabled by default since it's used for other purposes too...
I managed to put some tricks in order to limit the text into the proper area and auto-wordwrap so the book will be perfectly readable for CC. I've also added the auto page flip when you reach the end, but currently not works for paste text. However if you paste the text it will cut it for the page you pasted it...
Is there any way for your UI to buffer the copied text and parse it out onto the pages automagically?
While being able to write in an EC book and have it be read in the CC will be an extremely welcome change, I need to be able to paste old books back into the game on a frighteningly regular basis.
I still looking for some idea on how to do that... unfortunately there is only the OnTextChanged event that is triggered for every character of your text and makes impossible to determine how many pages you have
Hmmm... Can the UI count the number of characters to be pasted? That could give it a rough idea of how many pages total and where to put the in-game page breaks... Though that would probably require the UI to be able to distinguish what is a whole "word" as far as formatting goes, so it doesn't mangle the prose.
no, because it count the character typed. This means that if you paste 100 characters it will get a continuous call of the text changed event for every 100 characters. So you will not know how many are until you reach the last character, but you can't know which one is the last, because you can't know if you have pasted the text or you are typing it...
Then we have to harp on the Devs to fix/finish books! *shakes fist*
maybe I just need the right idea
I stop hoping in the devs mercy long ago, the only thing to hope for is they don't break more things
If you start an honorable combat, the honored creature will have a purple notoriety on the healthbar, target window and overhead name. The properties of the creature will shows the real notoriety.
Changed the font on healthbars.
Fixed a little problem on writeable books that hide some characters under the turn page button.
Chenged the writeable books text area:
Now the text will be properly formatted in order to be readable for CC client.
When you reach the end of a page, it will be turned automatically (do NOT continue automatically to paste text in the next page).
The large stack of silver now is shown correctly.
The friend list now allows you to add: ICQ, Email, Twitter and Facebook username for each friend. By clicking one of the usernames, the browser will open to their page.
NOTE: EC PlaySound must be active in order to open the links.
Fixed a bug with the item properties that prevents to see the properties of certain items.
Fixed a bug that prevents the change of the background of the hotbar's items.
Added 2 new center screen messages:
"The GM Has Arrived!": appears when you receive the message "Please enter [ to reply to the GM."
"The Server Is Going Down": is shown when you receive a warning of the server is going down.
In the context menu of the delay action, you will be able to use "Set Custom Delay" that will allows you to set any number with up to 3 digits after the dot (if you add more they will be rounded) as delay. The old system still accessible with "Edit Item".
I noticed the new GM thing the other day when I was doing the quests in Trinsic for the banners. I paged a GM and BAM! There was this big thing in my screen! I was like WOW that's cool! Thanks Pinco.
Updated the character sheet with the new functions:
Each city loyalty if clicked allows you to set your citizenship.
Left-Clicking the "Citizenship" field allows you to customize your citizenship title.
Right-Clicking the "Citizenship" field allows you to renounce your citizenship.
Added the Void Pool points.
Updated the cache cleaning in order to make the client working better with the latest changes.
Updated the map with the new Covetous locations.
Added the new Covetous monster's data to the creatures db.
Added the player context menu action "Void Pool".
Added the "Properties Showing Point" action:
This action can be used in hotbars ONLY.
You can place only 1 of this action in your hotbars.
When dropped in an hotbar slot, all the item properties tooltips will be shown over this action instead of the mouse location (even if the hotbar is hidden).
Clicking this action allows you to enable/disable the item properties.
Changed the font on healthbars.
Added a center screen text for the void battle begins and lost.
Added the Location Finder accessible from the magnify button in the top right corner of the map:
This tool allows you to find a specific place among the default labels.
Clicking one of the results will center the map on the clicked marker.
NOTE: The custom labels are NOT included into the search.
Now the void pool area will be recognized as a champion area for the music and paperdoll background.
The target details of the monsters in the void pool area will now give ? for bard difficulty and resistances since the value vary based on the wave.
Updated the new covetous monsters details in the Creatures DB.
Pinco, could we get a toggle for the current book gump to disable it and use the defult one? I love the look and style of the one in your UI, but with the way its presently displaying text (or, rather, not displaying huge chunks of it)...its next to useless
GL's EMs write a lot of books for our events and I am one of the few people who'd read them all the way through during the event. Right now, I can't
the books still a work in progress I'd like to try another font before give up completely
now should be at least readable, even if it's not so nice to see...
I appreciate the continued work with the books Pinco, I really do
Unfortunately, whatever you did brought back the bug which copies a book page over another Although, this time, its copying the last two pages of text when you turn the page (to a black one)
Also, there are still lines not being displayed and oddly broken words/lines in the books I checked.
The Devs really have no excuse for not fixing this issue at this point.
no, the text is not copied in the other pages, I've tested several time and it's not happening to me.
The actual version just allows you to see the book properly on EC, but at this point I don't care what people see on CC since there is no way to make it works properly unless you don't find the font used on CC...
The last page(s) of the book repeat after you go past the last page.
if you turn the pages very fast it can do it, but the code is correct, is just the client that can't get the text fast enough...
testing testing 1 2 3
Updated the UI with the new official features for fishing and "reset locations".
thanks pinco working great
Thanks Pinco!! Just 1 question; is it possible to get somehow on all your chars the same home made design of your interface? There isn't a way to save it to a file or something like that and load it to a fresh character.. or did I miss something?
you can use this tool to copy the settings between the profiles.
Updated the UI by adding the new despise points.
Pinco: First of all thanks for all your hard work. I concur that Pinco's UI should be the default for all players as it is just so much better:
a) One thing I have been unable to figured out: The options mention a CTRL+, CTRL-SHIFT+, etc. option for Hotbars. Since I was wondering if I can make some of my healing spells that target SELF overriden to target CURSUR when holding CTRL while activating it, I thought that this might exactly be what I am looking for? Surely many people have this problem and dont want to duplicate all their spells just for the difference target SELF vs. CURSOR, etc?
b) I have read in this thread about naked people. Yesterday I had the issue that someone in party riding a horse suddenly turned into a naked guy running around without horse. Is that related to Pincos UI?
Thanks a lot!
when you set the key binding just press CTRL + button (or whatever combination you want) instead of only the button. You can set every combination except ESC and ALT + F4 (for obvious reasons).
no, this is a client bug that exist since day 1.
There are several potential ways to fix the naked people problem.
1) Open their paperdoll. This usually redresses them.
2) Open your paperdoll. This works less often, but may be easier than targeting someone else.
3) Cast teleport, teleport a few tiles away. This usually resets all naked people.
4) Reset the UI (Ctrl-R). This can fix a host of intermittent problems with the EC, except for the dreaded health bar bug.
Thanks so much for the info!
The dreaded health bar bug? Is this the problem were health bars suddenly show wrong (mostly 100% full) health values?
Usually it goes away after a couple minutes for me. But I can guess it must be extremely annoying in certain situations. Its another EC bug that has no fix/workaround??
i have found with my beasts or pets if i cast a heal it resets them
Correct. For me the bars seem to remain unresponsive until I relaunch the client.
You can set/unset trap boxes in Pinco's UI. But where is the functionality to USE the trap box? I don't understand how its designed to work.
Thanks in advance!
just drag and drop the box into the hotbar and clicking it should use it
Question: Is there any way to keep the new Animal Lore gump, but disable the dumping of a text file to the Logs folder for the animals, whilst keeping it recording books? I wander about looking for good pets to sell and I'm ending up with thousands of files I just manually have to delete...
Storm OK sure that works, but that would make set/unset trap box completely irrelevant?
Any a second question in the meantime: I read that to get the best possible (read non-stretched) resolution one has to set a certain pixel height of the game window.
But you also have to set a certain zoom level. As I am always zooming in and out for various reasons I'd like to have a "reset zoom to optimal graphics" button. Would that be doable in lua? I can't seem to find code which would change player camera. (i.e. SetCameraZoom(100%)
because do not exist.
Hey Pinco one quick question:
I have found several uses of the function GetStringFromTid. But I cannot find a description anywhere.
It is used very often as:
if ( senderText == WStringToString(GetStringFromTid(502088)) and SystemData.SourceName == L"") then -- "A special gift has been placed in your backpack."
Now i want to add catch for other phrases like:
"An item has been placed in your backpack."
"You have received a scroll of power!"
But I don't know the "Tid" from these strings. Where did you find them?
Many thanks in advance.
there are no more working programs to get the tid...
I've uploaded the version 5.6d that should fix the sos bug and also allow to see the new buffs.
Hey Pinco. Seems like our wishes were granted. They say they fixed the health bar bug and ghost mob bug with Publish 80.
However, in Pinco the bug still seems to be there (tested with 22.214.171.124). Can you have a look, if you need to update something?
if the bug still there is because they have not fixed it... probably they think that saying "the bug is fixed" will automatically fix it like a magical formula, like the exposed functions of the previous publish (that was a big joke).
Hmm. I can't reproduce the bug in Default UI, only with Pinco. I will try more tomorrow.
I have tried for a few hours now and I still cannot get the health bar issue in the Default UI, but within 20-30 minutes in Pinco's I get it everytime.
that's just because my UI does a lot of create/destroy of healthbars and this will makes the client crazy after a while, so the client still broken.
They did something with a patch almost 1 year ago and this prevents the healthbars to work properly (looks like some kind of flag that prevents the client to request more health data).
anyways, if the fix does exist, you should try on TC because could involve some kind of server side interaction
There are no server changes related to this fix. The issue was related to the timing between when health packet data was requested by the client and the mobile actually being created. Also if you are having issues with the newly exposed functions released with client please provide additional information so that we may resolve them.
Hmmm. So where do we look for the bug now? As I said it is really easy to provoke in Pincos UI. Can we generate debug logs? Or do you think theres a bug in Pincos UI to be blamed?
well, there is not an issue with the new functions, they are just not accessible... is like calling unexisting functions
on the chat line type: /script PlaySoundByID( 1, 23, WindowData.PlayerLocation.x, WindowData.PlayerLocation.y, WindowData.PlayerLocation.z)
result: attempt to call global PlaySoundByID (a nil value)
meaning the function do not exist/is not accessible
same happen with getterraintype
about the healthbars: actually when the healthbars get stuck is because the mobile data do not receive updates on the health status, and is related to the continuous healthbars open/close or else the problem will exist immediately on login...
In Pinco's the mob bars can be made to update by alternating between 'show mobiles' and 'hide mobiles'
