I found a setting for that, and changed it to require e-mail verification. I hope someone who registers after this change can confirm this works now.


Confirmed  :) Hello, and wow this place echoes it's so new and squeaky clean  ;D

Re: How did you discover UnReal World? -- 10 choice poll Gotta be honest, I can't even remember how I originally found the game. I think my first exposure might've been through Mikrobitti too - maybe the game was featured as a "game of the day" or something. Whatever it was, I downloaded the game without a second thought, being a big fan of roguelikes. Fell in love with the game, but the limited lifetime in the shareware version just wasn't doing it for me, so after a while I sent my registration letter through snail mail, I believe along with cash money (technically forbidden, but this was before convenient online payments, so meh, sue me), and soon enough I was the proud owner of a registered copy of URW. Felt pretty good to have my name displayed in the main menu and everything.

Fast forward a decade and a half, and just yesterday I rolled a new character. The main menu doesn't display my name anymore, but the magic's definitely still there.

Re: Suggested forum modifications
What do you people think, would mentions be a good feature or not? If not, we can just unistall the module, as an e-mail per mention might become spammy if you are not given an option to toggle off the mails. But, if you think mentions would be a good way to organize and personalize forum discussions, then I will invest some more time in fixing it. (Generally speaking, SMF source codes seem pleasant to read, I'd guess adding a simple checkbox in the account settings wouldn't be a big problem)
It would probably be enough to show mentions on the forum and never email them. Sure some users might want email from such, but at least it shouldn't be on by default. And some kind of anti-spam is needed into such. It could be to send at most 1 email a day where it could collect mentions after first to be sent at later time (unless the user visited the forum to clear them). Not sure how much coding would that need. In any case, it is inevitable that at some point someone(s) will try to cause flood of dozens of posts if they know it'll spam them.

Hey Sami, everyone- UnReal World got noticed by Guru Larry! Figured I'd share this with everyone since it was so awesome to see it get mentioned by someone who's been in the business for decades, and recognizing your hard work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1n2OBm6hIc Though, he does say that URW has been in "development hell", that much at least I don't agree with. :P

Re: Legacy Characters I still have the characters. Helena, Xena and Kamputuuri are still around. Been meaning to set it back up but never finding the time.

##urw IRC Chatroom This is a migration of the old IRC topic from the old forum. It has some replies there that you may want to read which I won't be copying over.

I made an IRC chatroom. The idea is that it would be open all the time and people could lurk in it and now and then conversation could happen. Rules for conduct would be same as the forums -- don't be mean to each other. :)

Click here for instructions on how to use URWBot

How to join in:

IRC newbies
Go here: https://webchat.freenode.net/

Pick a name for yourself (preferrably your forum name so we know who you are, or if not then at least use the same name every time you join the channel)

In the "channels" box, type ##urw

Fill out the captcha and type connect.

The channel is ##urw not #urw. Freenode rules say that # channels are for official channels maintained by organisations -- so like if Sami wanted to own the channel because it's his game. ## channels are for unofficial groups, like this fan based channel.


Slightly more advanced

Download a program to connect to IRC. There are a lot of these. There's http://www.mirc.com/ for Windows and http://pidgin.im/ which works on windows/mac/linux. There's http://www.irssi.org for those of us who like to live in a terminal window.

You need to connect to freenode. there might be some gui feature you could use or there might be a box to type in.

The settings are:

chat.freenode.net
port 6667

you might want to set it to autojoin ##urw

you might need to type something like this:

Code: [Select]
/connect chat.freenode.net
/join ##urw

after the first command you get a wall of text welcoming you to freenode, after the second you join the channel.


If anyone is using irssi, I'm happy to paste from my .irssi/config if you want autojoin. If you're using something with a gui it probably has a button that'll do that for you.


basic irc commands

you might want to register your name so that nobody else can pretend to be you. type:
Code: [Select]
/msg nickserv register password email@address.com
where password is your new irc password and email@address.com is your real e-mail address.

after that, every time you sign on, you have to type
Code: [Select]
/msg nickserv identify password
(your program can do that automatically for you if you set it up)

you might want to send a private message to someone in the channel. do that by typing
Code: [Select]
/msg nickname hi
sometimes instead of saying something you want to do an action. type this without the space between / and me:
Code: [Select]
/ me catches a fish with a rock
this will display as

Code: [Select]
***Plotinus catches a fish with a rock
if your username is Plotinus, which it is not, because I registered that nickname.

if someone is annoying you, you can ignore them

Code: [Select]
/ignore nickname
if you don't want to ignore them anymore:

Code: [Select]
/unignore nickname
If you want to change your nickname, type this:
Code: [Select]
/nick NewNickName
If you need more help, here's a list of commands:

Code: [Select]
/help
then if you want to know more about a command, for example "away", type:

Code: [Select]
/help away

Rules

1) no spam -- spambots will be banned without warning.
2) don't be mean
2a) don't be racist, homophobic, sexist, etc.
3) off topic chit chat is okay but keep it friendly for all ages.
3a) no one cares what you do with your "spear" when it's not slaying njerpez.
4) if someone is annoying you, use /ignore
5) if you want to share a chatlog elsewhere on the internet because something funny happened, it is polite to ask the participants of the conversation first if that's okay.
5a) nonetheless, this is a public channel that anyone can join, so think about how much private information you want to share about yourself.

More rules can be added as we need them.

Backup channel in case of Netsplits or if freenode gets DDoSed:

Webchat:
Go to this page: http://www.spotchat.org/connect.html
In the box where it says Nickname, type a name you want to use.
In the box where it says Channel, delete #spotchat and type #urw
Then press start!


Using a client:

connect to irc.spotchat.org

once connected, type /join #urw

Re: Poems of the Fallen
Just a quick note which hopefully doesn't get things sidetracked;
I absolutely love this thread.  It's so great this was started, and that people joined in.

Oh I would love to have some of these verses to be composed into proper songs. Any composers/musicians/singers around who'd need a new project... :)

Sami, I am actually wanting to put a tune to Njerpez Fallen and make a recording of me singing it along with playing the tune on my mandolin, if Silenia wouldn't be opposed to me doing that with their work! Not for profit or anything like that, of course, but simply as a fun little project  ;D
