Players Disappearing / Random Quests

Postby mpaap on Fri Oct 10, 2014 10:07 pm

Hey!

I have been managing my own server for quite while and there are 2 problems i can't get over or under.. Maybe someone of you have experienced something like this and/or can give me some adviced on how to manage those problems or where to look at.


Problem 1. Characters Disappear
Not everywhere, but on some maps players disappear. For example, let's say im in Marsh of Ghosts and i'm leveling with my friend, all the sudden (in a blink of an eye) he is gone from map and there is no glue from him, expect i can still see chat on chatbox window. On his screen he is still killing mobs next to me.


Problem 2. Random Quests
When players create new character then around 1-2 times out of 10 the born with some random quests in their quest log and even if they delete the quests they can't do 1st job quest. Only solution for now is to change those few players jobs from db.

I don't even know where to the characters quest data is stored at.


Those bugs are pretty annoying, if anyone has any ideas how to solve them, then please reply here or PM to me.

Thank you for your time,
mpaap

There are a lot of things broken on that server.
It was released by the RoseZA team as an incomplete project with the intention of allowing the end users to fix their own problems.
The team essentially abandoned the project because it was too much work to get it 100% working with the client

Known issues are mostly related to quests, specifically any quest with a timer. none of them work.

We don't currently have any devs working on that project.
Need to lookup information on NARose items, skills, quests?
Now featuring a newly completed skill tree for all classes
Formatting fixed for different resolutions

Trust me i know few things about that client and server.

offtopic but whatever:
I have fixed the following already:
  1. Some quests,
  2. All Mounts,
  3. Disassamble Skill,
  4. Mspeed bug,
  5. Mounts/Carts teleporting,
  6. MP recovery,
  7. HP Pots,
  8. Item Mall with lucky spin,
  9. Con 0 at party,
  10. PVP balance
  11. Map/skill delays,
  12. Character loses buffs when taking clothes off,
  13. Trade bug,
  14. Vending bug,
  15. Numerous quests and skills

and thats just the begninning...
But those 2 bugs which i mentioned before give serious headache..

Did you get the timers fixed?
I tracked the issue back to the format that they use to store times.
Times in this client version are stored as 2 bytes and represent the number of seconds since NARose started up. I believe that was 0ctober 30th 2006.What a pain in the ass.

Anyway, your problems.
I've see that visibility thing before on some server a long time ago.
I think it has something to do with the refreshing of the visibility lists in the server. We had to use /here to reload the visibility lists. Shouldn't be too hard to fix this. Start off with the spawntoplayer function and work back into the function that actually renews the list for each player. This is also related to some instances of invisible monsters

Your quest issue is completely new to me though.
The most likely possibility is that the database is getting corrupted somehow.
Possibly when a player deletes a character, it is leaving behind some residual values then the same location gets re-used.
Same thing could potentially be happening in the servers if an id is being re-used when it isn't properly deleted first. That will be a little tricky to track down.

''some server''
Did you mean KTrose purple ? :p
The visibility thing happens on KTrose too, i remember seeing it on birth island when my friend was spawning it was either i couldn't see him or he did not move.
also seen in on adventure plain i think, i saw monster disappearing but did not see him.

Don't remember it happening on KTRose.
Guess it might have though. It's quite a long time now since I ran that server.
