I've been out of Utopia for four ages so I didn't find this thread earlier.

This is great, myself I played in age 10 for the first time but would really like age 3. The people of Utopia will love you forever if you actually make this work.

I hope that this thread will stay updated and that we'll find a link to sign up here soon.

Love your idea.

Sorry for the lack of info / lack of presence in IRC lately.

Porting is a bit slow at the moment. Should pick up before too long..

As soon as I have the code fully (or mostly) ported, I will start running tests again.

hey, instead of "Utopia Recreation Project" you should say "Utopia Re-creation Project", otherwise it sounds like some new sport or something.

Hi fellows.

Apologies for the long absense. I won't make excuses, I just wanted to say that I'm back now and I have resumed the project.

I am setting things up at sourceforge now. I'm very busy this semester with class and work so progress will be slow, but I *am* resuming progress.

Again, my apologies for letting down everyone who was looking forward to this project. If you think it has something left, then please participate & I hope I can get this thing to work!

There are a few things that I should update on, but I have to run off to class... I'll try & remember to post again when I get back in about 2.5 hours or so.

Alright, just a quick explanation of some changes here.

The client is being designed to use the internet explorer activex control. I know there's a lot of hostility towards IE, but this is better than the alternative I was using, and I'm not compfortable with using anything else at the moment.

I have some notion of porting this thing to php at some point for a cross-platform solution (and it will run as a webgame).

It is NOT being developed in .NET, I'm still doing everything in delphi, I gave up on .NET

http://sourceforge.net/projects/nutopia is the sourceforge site.

I'm finishing up the changes in the new client, I'll be uploading stuff shortly. Source code for both client & server will be made available.

I really feel like I let everybody down by being absent for so long - I hope this will not affect people's attitude towards the project, and perhaps w/ open source solution this problem will not occur again.

hey, don't feel bad, I've been busy too. I think the point of school (be it high school or college) isn't to give you an education, but to keep you so busy that you're not doing "bad stuff", whatever that may be.

It's a good point, you learn more from working and doing a job than going to school. More practical things anyway.




More on the subject, i have only been playing for four or five ages but i would love to play an old utopia game and will help out in any way possible bar coding because i can't do that

Alright, I'm pretty much finished changing everything over to IE support. There are a few issues.

The major issue is that since the client is now technically a browser, it's much much easier for the user to do something it doesn't understand. I'll figure out an elegant way of resolving this issue pretty soon. I think probably just a 'go to NUtopia' button would work, and that way you can use the client as a browser as well, if you so choose. This is the main issue, I Think

The second problem with the client is that the Internet Explorer ActiveX control is different from the HTML control I was using before (THTMLLite). For some reason I am unable to get the old version compile correctly now and it crashes when it tries to load game pages, making it unusable. So I am using Internet Explorer. It's nicer than what I was using before, but it's a bit touchy and in order to minimize the changes I had to make to the html pages and not make skinning the client any more difficult, I had to implement a few ugly workarounds. The good news is I *think* this is largely invisible to the end user.

One more thing - there may be some wierd errors when using the client because I am using OleObject to access various elements in the html. OleObject is very picky and I hope there will be no problems, I think I have caught them all.

http://nutopia. sourceforge.net

duno why that was blanked out =/ I had to put an extra space in there to get it to display.

Also, keep in mind that the server is somewhat unstable. Server has a tendency to run in background even after closing it, havn't nailed this one down yet. So do a ctrl+alt+delete & see if u need to force a close of the server after you try and end it. Not sure if client suffers from this, I don't think it does.
