new server, newgrounds issues? & EQTrainer updates

new server

All new hardware! Should run 10x faster.

Updated ram from DDR -> DDR3
Updated HD from IDE -> SATA
New Xeon processor and motherboard

There was some issues with the static IP being set to a new network card. That’s why my websites have been down for a few days. Turns out you have to reset the modem to accept it. Even Comcast tech’s couldn’t figure it out.

 newgrounds mobile

Newgrounds.com seems to have errors ALL over their website. My newgroundsmobile.com website is still getting the information fine, but it seems to be pulling these errors with it, just not as bad.

EQTrainer

I’m progressing on the EQTrainer. Here are some ideas and things I’ve implemented.

Ideas
1) Instead of letter labels for money, make images.
2) Make a copy location button per teleport
3) Make a clear button per teleport
4) Be able to click on the map and teleport there
5) Show version #

Implemented
When you press on the map name, shows the map with a red X where you are and follows your coordinates! A real working map system! Coming in my next version.

  1. I understand the learning experience and the interest to finding and developing a hack, but please reconsider what you are doing with EQMac. This already has the attention of Sony, and it is threatening the existence of PC players in whole because Sony is starting to get to a point where it may be worth fixing the PC client because of all the additional CS work they’re having to do to as a result of PC players.

    A lot of people don’t have access to a Mac or the proper hardware to dual-boot in to Hackintosh, if things like this start to get out of hand it could be a significant blow for the player base as well as the players who are being allowed to experience the joy of EQ as they remember it.

    1. I have thought about it before releasing this software. I remember playing eq back on the kunark expansion, and I still play on the mac server for nostalgic purposes. But, thegame is difficult and lacks features I so direly need.

      For example the mapping system im making so i can actually get around a map without getting lost, buff timers so i know when my buffs are expiring, bank money viewing so i know if i can purchase something, and teleporting so i can escape certain death situations and quicker travel.

      This is not to hurt the community.
