    Gameforge sucks

    I haven't been active on this forum since last year but i'v heard from a friend what has happened. I'm surprised metin2 is still alive to this day.. for the mmorpg's fan among us it has been obvious that mmorpg's is a dying genre. You barely see any new mmo's coming out and even those that do most of them are p2w crap. This actually could be the reason people still play old games such as WoW or metin2, because the lack of new mmorpgs. Anyway, now i'm sure this game will die for sure. the main reason it actually lived to this day is the innovation & creative thinking private servers has brought to keep this game alive. I'v even seen systems from popular new games such as battle royal, MOBA etc. these innovations is what keep players in this game because even tho the graphics are old, gameplay is medicore and animations are eh but the content is what really matters. And let's be honest here, what innovation did gameforge bring except of cash grab p2w systems? On the other hand, you can find plenty of extremely interesting innovative systems on these large pservers. Even on my own server(dead since 2 years) i have developed very unique dungeon competition timer ranking systems that no one until today have developed. Today it's the era of open source and sharing, companies who fail to adhere that will eventually die. why did microsoft published all of their recent products fully open source? microsoft was considered one of the biggest fan of closed source until few years ago. today, it doesn't catch. So, unless gameforge will publicly support pservers(or alternatively make this game open source) this game will for sure die. For those who relying their income on pserver, get a real job or open a real business. Peace

    c++ [C++]17.5 Official new elemental bonuses

    Everything should work fine, if you understand a bit of c++ & python you will be able to implement it without issues what so ever.

    I Wouldn't recommend on using the client side one. the main reason is code duplication. if you forget to change in either client/server side you have a bug.

    About Vegas ban

    Vegas is a cool guy, he helped me with few stuff long time ago and overall most of the time he act fine. In metin2dev forum he created a lot of drama and that caused extra moderating work for the management and in addition he broke the rules so the ban is justified, although, they should have made it temporary. why? first, because drama isn't necessary a bad thing. sometimes it is fun and motivating people to watch the forums more often. and second, because every person deserve a chance to change himself. 6 month ban is a decent punishment and it's enough time to let the guy think again before repeating such actions. I'm speaking here from an objective stand point. i haven't spoken to vegas for a long time. but we have to admit that he added a lot of tutorials and useful resources even if sometimes he acted immaturely.

    Frankie/M2BobFixed/warxwar/RaFFa is stealing your players' passwords!

    The real reason is because there isn't any management in this forum ,either that or a really bad one because even tho i come here every few days i see nothing has changed. i said it last year already that the forum is dying, i guess the management is too lazy to find new moderators

    2-step auth is a great idea as well, but entering a 2nd password with every entrance can hurt the user experience so i'm not sure about that(i'm not a UX expert xD). blocking ip + hwid is too much(why the rest of the family has to suffer if one is being a jackass?). blocking hwid can be bypassed aswell if i'm not mistaken? i know that mac address can be spoofed for sure. i'd go with the unique salt per account, or, make a very intuitive and user friendly 2-step auth system.

    open Asking developers Reading/googling before commenting can do wonders mate Basically, having a hash generator in client & server side with symmetric encryption methods can significantly minimize the chance of successful bruteforce. For example, in client you'll have the salt encrypt method, it will convert the login data into a one way hash. and server will check if the hashed data equivalent to the database data. server side check, example: if (clientLoginHashedData is not equal encrypt(databaseLoginData) { return false; } If you're interested i can code for you such a system(not free). Good luck.
  9. yep.. i used to contribute here quite often but i'v stopped since few months. since i saw the amount of people leeching and not sharing anything with others i have decided to stop. also few people just keep criticizing others work without even understanding how it works just cause they were bored. Right now im working full time as developer(c#) in finance company but i still develop games as hobby and im working on a generic game management system(metin2 included) that ill be selling in a month or two to public. metin2 is no longer alive as it used to be and that's a fact. one of the biggest reasons for metin2dev to die is because of lack of management(in my opinion).
  10. Hi ! My name is Ioan and i loved metin2 as a teenager . Since 1 month ago i totally forget about metin2 but one of my friends told me that he wants to open a little metin2 server for our friends(+little brothers) . I started to compile both server and client source (found on internet) untill i got a problem . TItemTable structure from CItemData.h has different members (actually size,i think it is called stride :-?? ) from the default one and i cannot unpack item_proto(from client) even that i know the lzo key + fourCC . Can you help me with a little advice please?

    Looking for a Game&Web Developer.

    Hey, I'v been working on a very complex and impressive game & admin management with tons of features(written in c#). I'll be offering it for sale once it's complete(matter of few months). If you can wait until then, you probably won't regret it Regards,

    open Programming automatec bot (client)

    The best tutorial you will find is by exploring the metin2 client source code yourself. My advice would be start from the main function in userinterface.cpp then dive in and see where it leads you. metin2 UI is coded in python that is embedded in c++. so on run time the python code is being converted into c++. so your best bet is to either be strong in c++ or python(preferably both). You can code the client directly in c++ without python although that'd be harder for beginners since python is way easier than c++ for beginners. nodeJS is a server side language, won't help you here.
