hey guys, havn't touched this thing in a looong time, I really have been busy w/ personal life and school and stuff, but for info on the game, try this:

http://web.archive.org/web/199905081...help/races.htm

don't put 'games.eesite.com/utopia/help/' into archive.org, that just gives you the index for a later version of the guide, put in the actual page name too... i.e. growth.htm:

http://web.archive.org/web/199905081...elp/growth.htm

try these:

http://members.tripod.com/sir_bugoo/

might wana put that in archive.org too, not sure.

I've done a little bit more work on the server, here's what's new so far.

some of you might know that the codebase for the server was due to change. I have decided to forgoe that (since my helper isn't working on it, and I don't have the familiarity/skills to update it on my own) and instead am working on the existing codebase (that is on sourceforge).

Updates to the server:

-fixed bug in new player creation that was causing range check errors
-fixed bug in boat production & optimized boat production code
-fixed potential bugs in new player registration (certain strings might not have received null terminators)
-re-enabled xml importing
-added player file importing from xml
-began work on new management interface

a minor thing left to do is fix the way boats are built. currently, the max is 5 per shipyard, but I am pretty sure that the way things were back in the day is that you kept building boats until you had enough for an army twice your current size.. so I gotta fix that.

the new management interface is going to be a big change. without going into details, I'm trying to convert things to html, rather than just the text window and command line. this should make things easier for server admins. I should probably finish implementing the game mechanics, but not much is left there, really... most of what is left is asthetic stuff to make the game more playable, since I'd estimate about 80% of the actual game 'works'. I don't know when I'll be releasing an update to the server or the client, but at least there's this post to keep people up to date.

hmm I can't create an account...?
I've chosen the right server to connect to but when I try to make an account nothing happens, all fields are made empty again. What to do?

I just downloaded the files from the website and tried a few times before I wrote that so I have the newest version. Could it be that there are no more open slots for new provinces?

I think that htn02 doesn't have a server running right now.

alright well I finished xml loading/saving of players... and let me tell you, that was some tedious coding. There is a xml serializer for delphi 6, but unfortunatly, it doesn't work (as far as I can tell) with the person edition, which is what I have, because a tlb file was not distributed w/ the personal edition... so I had to write the xml importing/exporting by hand... nasty, and it's hard-coded, so if someone changes the record definition, the xml i/o hasta be re-written as well.

Main use of the XML is ease of viewing... right now you can't change player stats except by editing the file directly, so it's handy to have the xml rather than a flat file... you don't need a hex editor and the offset for the variable you want, just edit the xml. when the html management system is finished (if ever) the xml will be a good option, I guess... but really the xml is more of a novelty, I am not sure it's really much of an enhancement in and of itself, but there might be some ways to make good use of it.

now the major downside to using XML files is that importing players from XML is really really slow... on my 900mhz tbird, 256mb ram, it takes between 0.12 and 0.14 seconds to load a player, and that's from a fresh server with no players loaded. saving the xml is fast though.

btw, I think there are some bugs in this, but I don't have time/energy/desire to find them now... it's late. just wanted to give an update

I plan on making a php version. I have the sql file done. Now i'm working on the php files. It's nothing i'm going to release. Just my first php project. I'll use this to learn php. Ordered some php books in the mail. I seem to be catching on well enough. I the sql wasn't hard but the php may give me some trouble. Figuring out a system to make kingdoms and as attack formula will take the longest. Just wanted to do it since someone told me way back in the day. That making a game like utopia was to hard and you can't just learn to make one. You have to go to school for all these programming languages. So I took c++ in highschool and it was pretty easy. Of course it's a couple years later and i'm sitting in Iraq. So I have been wanting to make a website in php and found out you can make browser based games with it. I probably coudn't write a C++ program out of my head right now but the php code seems similar. So I understand the variables and stuff.

Good luck with your project. I played ages 2-11 then quit because I joined the army. I tried to play some last age but I work like 12 - 16 hours a day here and it wasn't working out. The older ages were the best. I'm thinking of making this and takinf it to work and hosting it there. It's on a internal network and will never get out. It's a Top Secret network but people still try and bring in a game to liven stuff up. I probably will ony be able to get around 10 t0 15 people to play though. I'll just have to make the ticks fast.

glad you're interested and thanks for the support. good luck w/ your php version. I started this project in PHP and thought I had gotten pretty far, but then I started realizing that there is so much stuff to take into consideration that I didn't consider when I started, so I scrapped it and later on decided to start over, but this time using delphi (since I'm more familiar w/ it).

this project really progresses in spurts. my time is very limited usually but I will pick the project up for a couple of weeks periodically and then disappear into real life on short notice

but I do try and keep up w/ what is going on, even if I'm not involved.

Well I've got a server up and running on the local LAN and it works fine, people can create provs and time goes by but anyone connecting from the internet via the firewall gets a page cannot be displayed error.
The server is recording their IP at first connection but then it seems to kick them for some reason. Port 7040 is redirected to the game server Version 0.0.8.0, can't get the latest running.
Any ideas folks as I would like to get this up and live even if it is a bit buggy, makes it feel like it did back then anyway when you couldn't get on the server for hours.

I remember some versions of the server automatically booted someone after they registered, so they had to close the client and reconnect... but I take it this isn't your problem, and that people on the LAN are able to play normally after they get disconnected the first time?

I'm a bit concerned that you couldn't get the newest build of the server to run.

Im a KD mate of shadow lord and told him about 'Utopia Classic'. He set up the server and all that technical stuff and then i downloaded the client and tried to make an account. We'll, that didnt work, i keep getting a page load error and so i had him make me an account. Now when i try to manage my account, i get a page load error when i try to log on. So after talking, it we came to the conclusion that it seems to be a matter of getting his server to let others play from different IP's...or something. Anyway, any ideas?

was there any message along with the error?

If he could email me the log files from the server, that would help. itsuneek [] gmail / com
