I have one more thing currently that I hope you can manage to do something with in the new client.
Ever since I started Endless Online like 9 1/2 - 10 ish years ago I noticed that there was no button on the log in screen to recover/rest account names/passwords if forgotten. You always had to reply on a mod that was never fucking there so if you lost it it was basically ''tough shit''.
So, I was wondering if it would be possible to add a new button either when you hit play (on the log in menu itself where you type in your info) to either get sent a reminder of your username (by the email that you registered with) or get your password reset. This isn't too often a problem, but I do see this as a necessity for the eo client. Though, there'd also with this have to be an automated email verification system as well as an automated email system for recovering such things.
I think thats a very good idea and a necessity, since i am not to familiar with net protocol's and such maybe we can just store a secret word or prase in the database that the player sets. I will also look into your idea and some other methods!
Sorry for the lack of updates at this point I'm working about 10 hours a day, 6 days a week managing a long john silvers/a&w and a gas station. I usually get about less than an hour a day to work on the client.This last week I've worked on keyboard input finalizing the graphical aspects of the character creation menu and started working on networking a little more. I'm stuck with the rest of the character creation menu intell I get these responses correctly from the server!
Thank you Angi!
I'm sorry for the lack of updates my life is like a roller coaster,anyway I am still working hard on this project but progress is slow.I have now got the client 90% complete before the actual game play. I have the client's networking and packet functions up to the welcome_reply "in english" up to the point where you log in and get the news. I'll try and keep you guys more up to date on the clients status,later :D
You guys prolly see the pattern on the clients progress,the first part of the month theres no updates and the end of the month I add some new stuff.I don't want to get burnt out on the client so I dedicate about a 3'rd of each month to work on it :D. Anyways stay tuned I'll have some updates coming the next couple weeks!
Well I've spent the last couple weeks working about 5-10 hours a day on the client and I've achieved some good progress.
The characters can now login to the server, wear boots,armor, and Ive got names rendered. Today I got my first map rendered correctly. The next couple weeks I'm going to back off a bit so I dont get burnt...anyway here is a screenshot of the map I got rendered
Hello and sorry I've been gone for so long! I just wanted to touch down real quick and let everyone know I did not fall off the face of the earth I have just had alot of personal issues I had to correct ect ect. I lost my internet and got a few more responsibilities added to my plate ect.
Anyway the clients progress hasnt stopped, Ive been spending all of my spare time on it and I have accomplished alot. Maps,chat,ingame gui, character interactions such as attacking,walking chatting equipt/unequipt items spells basic paperdoll and inventory.
I will be getting my net turned back on in 2 weeks and will soon after post my progress/screenshots and possibly v 188.8.131.52.
Miss you all and hope all is well!!
