  No Longer Accepting Players

We are no longer accepting anymore players for awhile...

We will now "start" the full campaign once all players are comfortable with the system. So be sure to read the Game Logs to find out whats going on and to read up on our progress. Also, I have delayed making character portraits and will resume once the game picks up and I have more time to work on them.

On another note, I have a job interview today, and I hope all goes well... If I get hired, hopefully I wont have to change the current schedule. The game will begin at 7 PM CST (8 PM EST), but you will find me in the lobby with the necessary materials. Also, we will no longer allow lurkers for the next several sessions and once the players are comfortable lurkers will be allowed. To get the password to get into the game room you can login at the Members Area and get it once its posted. Only players will have access to the Members Area so registering on the site will not grant you access to the Members Area.

Also on another note, I will be running OpenRPG 1.2.1 and I will not require an upgrade unless the game becomes dependent on maps. If you want to mess with some of the advanced aspects of 2 The Xtreme (such as plotting and tactical layouts), it is recommended getting the OpenRPG 1.2.x series. For regualar players, for stability purposes you'll be required to have at least 1.0.3.

In case you haven't heard the news, I'm helping Chris out with the new OpenRPG site. I will probably be responsible for general administration and such. I'll also probably be doing some programming work for the site like some generators and such.

Now, about our site...

First off. I Fixed the forum... Finally!!!! I was told by users that the forum was not showing up (but oddly it shown up on my box), and I decided to finally get a more in-depth look and found the issue. The issue was resolved and now the forum is now functional. You can visit the forums here. Now its about time to liven it up .

  • Edited some code for the Web Links... The categories are now more organised.
  • Changed some graphics in the Web links
  • Cleaned up some more messy code in the main files.
  • Finally released the Child Generator out of beta... You can see it here.
  • Started working on our "Credit Card Processor" that will allow you to purchase items from the store. You can vew the list here and add users here. Obviously, these accounts are bogus.
  • Finally made a script that will automatically randomize all 2 The Xtreme Skills. It will be part of a character creation suite for 2 The Xtreme. It can be seen here. This script is not currently civilization based.
  • Made another script that will be present in the Character Creation Suite. The script will tell you how many points you have to distribute among your attributes. This one is civilization based. You can see it here.

As you can see, I've been doing a lot of programming work because I believe this is something I want to become my main job. I like programming in php/MySQL. I will be working on 2 major projects. The "important" one is the Character Creation Suite. It will be all automated. No more need for researching something as it will have all necessary info. The other project is the Credit Card Server. At first, the CC Server was going to be extensive, but I decided not to make it too complex as all it will really need, is the ability to bill your character's account. I'm also helping out Chris with the OpenRPG site.

  Artists Against Piracy Day

I've decided I'm gonig to participate in the 2nd annual Artists Against Piracy Day, on July 1, 2002 started by the Poser Forum Online (pfo). A week before it starts, I'm going to activate the block with the banner and a link, but if you're curious here is the link.

You're prolly wondering why in the hell am I participating in an "Artists Against Piracy" day... Well, in case you haven't looked, I have a gallery and I DO NOT support piracy. Besides you prolly don't need to worry about the HIGHLY INSANE prices on 3d programs and models and unfortunately, I do because I BUY the stuff...I have seen many good people quit sharing thier models, products, etc for commercial usage. Morphworld is a good example, he got sick of people illegally using his morphs in commercial products, and he temporarily shut down his site. Itd back up now but you cannot use *any* of his stuff commercially, and were lucky he even re-opened his site. I never really understood the "Starving Artist" clich? until I got into the 3d community. Slave away to do good work then, get screwed... How would you feel?

I'm done ranting on this issue for now, but "Stop the theft, Work for your tools. Don't steal them."

Since our previous host was going through ome technical problems, I had to move the site, yet again. We are now sponsored by CadeNet. Hopefully we can stay with CadeNet, and make them our final host.

After some messing around with the new version of php-nuke, I decided to go ahead and upgrade. Transferring data from the old database to the new one proved to be fairly difficult. I'd like to ask all registered users to please log in and make sure all your information is accurate.

The new version incuded new forum software (Splatt), but I decided to keep our existing forum (xmbForum) because forum software can be a real bitch to get working right wink.

Some new features include:
  • Minor cosmetic changes in the default information block
  • Users can't see option to change theme if we have only one theme available (obvious, no?)
  • Fixed copyright notice in content pages and very little cosmetic changes
  • Added explicit copyright notices in their places (if you remove it, you'll die)
  • First attempt to fix the statistics table's duplication bug
  • Fixed bad font tag in mainfile.php
  • Fixed Private Message bad link in the submissions function
  • Fixed number of stories in home when addin a new user, now it takes the config.php variable
  • Fixed & character in backend.php
  • Fixed inclusion of voteinclude.php in Downloads module
  • Many backend database and file changes.
  • Theme Changes. The form boxes match the site better now.

Thanks,
MGCJerry

MGCJerry has lost the net, they just shut him off and they wouldn't except this months payment. So I GCMatt will be handling all site related stuff for now. I will be taken over the internet version until he gets internet back.
