Testing self-made Ages online

Postby Jogi » Thu 14. Jun 2012, 17:50

Nexus - Restoration Links: Test Age - Only Creaters (BTW, should spell: Creators)

Yesterday I used this entry the first time. I copied all of the files (not only *.prp) of my self-made Age, which I named "test" for this purpose of course, into the dat-folder and I could visit my Age through TOC-tPots! :D

I use "sequenceprefix: 6500" as intended. But for the "page"-names I use my own names, not the intended "Scene", "testprp01", "testprp02", ... - I hope this does not represent a problem to the server?

You said this for MOUL, but I am afraid it also applies to tPots?

Ages using Python and/or SDL files won't work correctly, though.

That is admittedly unfortunate, but nevertheless it is a beginning. Since I am still at the very beginning of my creation, I use neither SDL nor Python, yet. But this could change in future.

Anyway, thank you for this feature! 8-)


Presently I use Blender 2.49b for building, but once I will move to Blender 2.5 or 2.6 and then I will test the same feature on TOC-MOUL.

It does because the client will download a specific test.age file from the server that you cannot change. To play your prp files they have to fit the naming.

This explains why you cannot use your own names for "pages". :idea:
I think there are several good reasons why the user's "test.age" is overwritten and replaced by the file from the server...

Looking into the file from the server a small incongruity appears:
The name of the page with index 0 is still "mainroom" here on tPots, not "Scene" as posted in Re: Your personal Test age!

Code: Select all
StartDateTime=0000000000
DayLength=00.250
MaxCapacity=10
SequencePrefix=6500
ReleaseVersion=0
Page=mainroom,0
Page=testprp01,1
Page=testprp02,2
Page=testprp03,3
Page=testprp04,4
Page=testprp05,5


This does not represent a problem. 8-)
But you should know it. (difference between PyPRP 1.6 and PyPRP 2.0?)
