Hello Everyone
« on: October 19, 2020, 02:16:52 AM »
It's been a while since I last logged on.  I hope everyone is well.  I bought myself a new computer as the old one was hijacked by my daughter a couple years ago so she could play LoL... what a horrible game.  Needless to say, she's at university so I can resume modding again.  I could have bought a new computer a lot sooner but honestly, I was frustrated with certain plugins and the rate at which things were getting fixed or debugged.  I got tired of waiting and said screw it.  My sons want me to get the mod back up and so here we are.  I renewed my webpage at aftermathcentral.com and logged on here. :)

I am writing to ask some questions about resuming modding.  It's been two years or so since I have done anything.  I am aware two significant issues - LE and the crashing because of the conflict between the NPC plugin and the Dreamland plugin.  LE is easy to fix.  The NPC plugin ... maybe not.  I may have to remove one or both of the plugins and go from there.  If that's the case, I have a lot to undo.  However, those two issues are secondary and below is where I am starting.

A) Can a D2GS server run on Windows 10?  (Yes I am rolling the patch back and making sure its playable on a realm.)  I have not logged on PK in two years but I doubt that the Dreamland plugin is fixed.  If I am mistaken, please correct me.  I would be thrilled to hear otherwise.

B) If the answer to (A) is no.  IE a D2GS cannot run on Win10, what platform would you suggest?  I would assume I need to load VirtualBox or something like that and install another OS in that box.  I do have a legit copy of Win XP  :)  I cant find my Win7.  :(

C) If the answer to (A) is yes, can you please post a link that I can follow?  I am under the impression that you cant but I could be wrong.  There are clever people out there.

That's my first goal.  Get the realm back up even if I have to remove a couple plugins to make it more stable.  Once that's done, full speed ahead.
Cheers!

Hi Math,

Longtime fan of the mod! I don't know anything about modding, but I registered to say that you might be able to find the answers to your questions by asking around on the Hell Unleashed discord (link here: https://discord.gg/JwZfy2Y).

Hi Trevor,

i had been really inactive too.. If you have time to wait im in the process of converting the realm into docker containers.
My Multirealm ist status now a collection of nested LXC Containers but with docker it will be easier to expand and scale with the bonus of using lesser server IPs.

Greetings

Seltsamuel

Hello Spike and Selts
I understand that things have been quiet.  When I get closer to a new patch, Ill talk to you Selts.  Do I still have access to the uploading site or not anymore?  Spike, I will install discord this weekend and hook up. 
Cheers

A) Yes, one additional step with the registries for 64byte
B) Depending if you want to spend money, getting a AWS VPS Windows 2016 server is a good easy option to run the server on (which is what I do)
C) This is for the registry https://pvpgn.fandom.com/wiki/How_to_get_D2GS_working_on_64-bit_OS_(XP_64-bit,_Vista_64-bit,_7_64-bit) The other thing is you won't run the d2gs like a service on the older machines, just run d2gs.exe
