• LORD registration

    From jokker@77:1/100 to netsurge on Tue Mar 31 09:02:00 2020
    So interestingly this happened today during my game!

    ** GAME STATISTICS 4.06 **

    This game has been running for 31 days.
    This game is NOT registered.


    (On Diskshop BBS)

    so I exited and re-entered the game and


    This game has been running for 31 days.
    You are playing a REGISTERED game.

    So there might be a bug with the registration in the game. I unfortunately don't know if it's during a game or just at loadtime if it fails to believe it's registered or not.

    This might explain why some codes for people still seem to fail at times. Perhaps something to do with the setup of calling from Windows->Dos or Linux->Dos, hard to say without more information.

    The real downside to this was that the game totally fucked me over in a
    couple of ways because it decided it wasn't registered. :D

    Is this the first time it has happened to you? I have never seen or noticed
    it before.

    Indeed that I've noticed anyways. Mainly came to my attention because I spent some gems on potions and it cursed me saying my sysop was at fault. I also
    went to Turgon's and it said I couldn't level because the game was unregistered. So I checked the config from the main menu and it said it was unregistered which was bizarre. So I exited out and when I came back in it
    was registered again and all was seemingly fine.

    I'm sure if I hadn't done the gem thing I wouldn't have noticed since nothing else seemed amiss.

    We should just build a LORD 1 for 1 clone and call it a day. It's everyone's (most people's) favorite game and it will forever be stuck with a bunch of papercuts.

    Tis an option I guess...certainly would allow for better ibbs type features
    and I'm sure a plethora of other things. Considering there are newer
    LORD-likes existing today we could modify one of them into an engine that you could just skin to be anything, including LORD.

    We could also just outright crack lord so that sure you can reg for the
    optics but otherwise completely neutered from an actual validation standpoint.

    If it would help I have two different keygen's for 4.06 I can give you. although one of them does give me the same problem you described. I couldn't level until I logged out and back in..

    I'd be careful with trying to do something more ambitious
    than just a straight-forward clone. Projects like that
    often smack of second-system effect and get stalled.

    Deuce has built one in JS for Synchronet. It is open source, so it could
    be ported.

    For Honour is a pretty good substitute, also currently supported and also
    open source.

    I think we've yet to explore the real potential of interbbs games by relying
    on piggybacking game packets over FTN. I think there's possibly a more interesting way to do this...

    I've almost done this like 50 times now. Darkness originally started as a
    LORD clone, in fact. ;)

    LOL yes I do. I have a DOS board still running (on port 27) that has
    nearly 100 DOS doors online. I thought I might try to see if For Honour
    would compile in DOS but I never have. I was thinking the JS code for Lord
    JS 5 might be a starting point for someone who wanted to port it to another language (which might hopefully run on DOS). :)

    Yeah definitely got the ol' negative armour thing happening to me as well.

    Indeed! Thusly why I've been very careful with The Pit. Although so far I
    think I'm level 10 on Diskshop and it's just a f**cking hard ass game. :D

    Can't stop playing it though...
