11/16/2014

  • mackal fix size issue with ControlBoat_Struct and exploit fix in OP_BoardBoat

  • Akkadius Implemented Automatic Database update and versioning system

  • Akkadius Created database revision define, this is located in version.h in common #define CURRENT_BINARY_DATABASE_VERSION 9057

    • This revision define will need to be incremented each time a database update is made

    • Along with a revision define increment, you will need to update the db_update manifest located in:

      • An entry needs to be made at the bottom of the manifest, the entry is quite simple

      • Example: 9057|2014_11_13_spells_new_updates.sql|SHOW COLUMNS FROM spells_new LIKE 'disallow_sit'|empty|

        • This latest example is checking to see if the spells_new table contains the column 'disallow_sit', if its empty, the update needs to be ran

          • More examples of match types below:

            Example: Version|Filename.sql|Query_to_Check_Condition_For_Needed_Update|match type|text to match

            0 = Database Version

            1 = Filename.sql

            2 = Query_to_Check_Condition_For_Needed_Update

            3 = Match Type * If condition from match type to Value 4 is true, update will flag for needing to be ran

            contains = If query results contains text from 4th value

            match = If query results matches text from 4th value

            missing = If query result is missing text from 4th value

            empty = If the query results in no results

            not_empty = If the query is not empty

            4 = Text to match

    • The manifest contains all database updates 'Required' to be made to the schema, and it will contain a working backport all the way back to SVN -

      currently it is tested and backported through the beginning of our Github repo

    • On world bootup or standalone run of db_update.pl, users will be prompted with a simple menu that we will expand upon later:

11/15/2014

  • Uleat (Natedog) A better fix for OP_ShopPlayerBuy * doesn't cause the issues that I introduced

  • Kayen Implemented NPC Special Ability 41 'Allow To Tank', gives NPC opportunity to take aggro over a client in melee range.

  • Kayen Updated swarm pet AI to be consistent with live.

Old AI

Swarm pet would lock on to target until target died, then depop as soon as target died.

New AI

Swarm pet will attack cast on target, NOT perma locked it can change targets if attacked by something else that generate more hate. When target dies swarm pet will follow owner, if owner is attacked by something else the swarm pet will attack it (until duration timer despawns the pet).

  • Kayen Updated perl quest function: MakeTempPet(Tspell_id, name=nullptr, duration=0, target=nullptr, sticktarg=0)

  • Kayen Implemented perl quest function: Mob::TypesTempPet(npctypesid, name=nullptr, duration=0, follow=0, target=nullptr, sticktarg=0)

    Note: 'sticktarg' field will cause the swarm pet to use the OLD AI

Rule to use OLD AI only * default is disabled

10/15/2014

  • Uleat Cleaned up load/drop bots sqls, added '../utils/sql/git/bots/deprecated' and '../deprecated/load_bots_old.sql' (use this file on pre-player blob conversion databases.)

    Notes: I modifed the behavior of both load and drop bots to fail on the first operation if their modifications have been performed already.

    'load_bots.sql' will explicitly add bot schema, while 'drop_bots.sql' will explicitly drop it. I also added a few lines to change
    a few altered tables back to their original state * as of the date in the file.

10/13/2014

  • Akkadius Changed status logging for loads/saves to Debug category

09/21/2014

  • Akkadius Player Profile Blob to Database Conversion

    • Summary: HUGE difference in database speeds reads/writes and 1:10 datasize difference

      • The new character storage engine unlike the character_ table before, is able to properly index data and make use of

        proper MySQL/MariaDB caching optimizations and performance has increased phenominally

        PERFORMANCE AND STATISTICS FIGURES (Varies on hardware):

      • EZ Server Character data size of 2.6GB character_ table alone now takes up approx 600MB

      • Character Data Loads take approx .03 seconds BEFORE MySQL/MariaDB cache

      • Character Data Loads take approx .001-.0035 seconds AFTER MySQL/MariaDB cache

      • Character Data Saves take approx .0001 * .003 for any particular save operation

      • Database Auto Conversion: When the 'character_' table exists, World boot-up will queue an auto-conversion prompt and convert all of your characters, BACKUP

        YOUR DATABASE BEFORE CONVERTING, here is an EASY backup script: http://wiki.eqemulator.org/p?MySQL_DB_Backup_Script

        • On auto conversion, the following tables are created automatically:

          • Table: character_skills * Stores Character Skills

          • Table: character_languages * Stores Character Language

          • Table: character_bind * Stores Character Bind point and Home Bind point designated by is_home bool field

          • Table: character_alternate_abilities * Stores all Character AA

          • Table: character_currency * Stores all Platinum/Gold/Silver/Copper and character related currencies

          • Table: character_spells * Stores character spells

          • Table: character_memmed_spells * Stores character memorized spells

          • Table: character_disciplines * Stores character disciplines

          • Table: character_material * Stores character armor dye textures

          • Table: character_tribute * Stores character tributes

          • Table: character_bandolier * Stores character bandoliers

          • Table: character_inspect_messages * Stores character inspection messages (Moved from character_ table)

          • Table: character_leadership_abilities * Stores character Leadership AAs

    • Loads: Majority of Player profile loads now occur at Client::Handle_Connect_OP_ZoneEntry

      LoadCharacterFactionValues(uint32 character_id, faction_map & val_list);

      LoadCharacterSpellBook(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterMemmedSpells(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterLanguages(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterDisciplines(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterSkills(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterBandolier(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterTribute(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterPotions(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      LoadCharacterLeadershipAA(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

    • Saves: Occur all over the code now instead of calling full saves

      SaveCharacterBindPoint(uint32 character_id, uint32 zone_id, uint32 instance_id, float x, float y, float z, float heading, uint8 is_home);

      SaveCharacterCurrency(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      SaveCharacterData(uint32 character_id, uint32 account_id, PlayerProfile_Struct pp, ExtendedProfile_Struct m_epp);

      SaveCharacterAA(uint32 character_id, uint32 aa_id, uint32 current_level);

      SaveCharacterSpell(uint32 character_id, uint32 spell_id, uint32 slot_id);

      SaveCharacterMemorizedSpell(uint32 character_id, uint32 spell_id, uint32 slot_id);

      SaveCharacterMaterialColor(uint32 character_id, uint32 slot_id, uint32 color);

      SaveCharacterSkill(uint32 character_id, uint32 skill_id, uint32 value);

      SaveCharacterLanguage(uint32 character_id, uint32 lang_id, uint32 value);

      SaveCharacterDisc(uint32 character_id, uint32 slot_id, uint32 disc_id);

      SaveCharacterTribute(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

      SaveCharacterBandolier(uint32 character_id, uint8 bandolier_id, uint8 bandolier_slot, uint32 item_id, uint32 icon, const char* bandolier_name);

      SaveCharacterPotionBelt(uint32 character_id, uint8 potion_id, uint32 item_id, uint32 icon);

      SaveCharacterLeadershipAA(uint32 character_id, PlayerProfile_Struct* pp);

    • Deletes:

      DeleteCharacterSpell(uint32 character_id, uint32 spell_id, uint32 slot_id);

      DeleteCharacterMemorizedSpell(uint32 character_id, uint32 spell_id, uint32 slot_id);

      DeleteCharacterDisc(uint32 character_id, uint32 slot_id);

      DeleteCharacterBandolier(uint32 character_id, uint32 band_id);

      DeleteCharacterLeadershipAAs(uint32 character_id);

    • Now occur all over the code and only trigger when necessary

    • Two FULL saves when looting a corpse, this has been reduced to just currency saves on initial loot and trimmed to one save since AddToMoneyPP did it already

    • Every time a player moves coin with any situation (Splits/Trades/Merchant/Skills/Bank Coin Exchange/Coin Moves), a full save is made, this is now just a currency save

    • Every time a player skilled up at a skill vendor, a full blob save hit was made, this is not just a currency hit

    • Every time an AA was purchased, a full save was made

    • Every time a spell was scribed/swapped, disc was trained

    • When a client exists a zone, when a client enters a zone

    • NOTE: These amount of excessive saves have caused scalability issues that cause the character_ table to hang which causes process hangs that affect the whole server

      because of the slowness of the character_ table and the blob not allowing any indexing to occur

    • All functions that once depended on the character_ table are now rewritten to appropriately read from the character_data table

    • Database query errors that occur during conversion or from and load/save/delete character functions are now leveraged via ThrowDBError and logs now go to

      Server_Folder_Root/eqemu_query_error_log.txt (You cannot log errors natively through MySQL)

    • DBASYNC IS NOW COMPLETELY REMOVED * This was mainly for Character data async loads/saves and merchantlist loads

    • Side implementations: Perl Exports:

      • quest::crosszonesetentityvariablebynpctypeid(npctype_id, id, m_var) * Sets entity variables world wide with specified npctype_id

      • quest::crosszonesignalnpcbynpctypeid(npctype_id, data) * Signals all NPC entities world wide with specified npctype_id

      • $client->GetTaskActivityDoneCount(TaskID, ActivityID) * Gets task activity done count by task id and activity id for client entity

      VIEW TABLE SIZE AFTER CONVERT:

      SELECT CONCAT(tableschema, '.', table_name) as table_name, CONCAT(ROUND(table_rows / 1000000, 2), 'M') rows, CONCAT(ROUND(data_length / ( 1024 1024 1024 ), 2), 'G') DATA, CONCAT(ROUND(index_length / ( 1024 1024 1024 ), 2), 'G') idx, CONCAT(ROUND(( data_length + index_length ) / ( 1024 1024 1024 ), 2), 'G') total_size, ROUND(index_length / data_length, 2) idxfrac FROM information_schema.TABLES WHERE table_name LIKE 'character%' ORDER BY DATA DESC;

    Optional SQL adds the rule to the DB to allow easy of change

    Note: this does not play well with multiple sessions with the same name on (crash and relog and have multiple sessions) but normal tells don't play well either

09/06/2014

  • Uleat Tweaked 'Smart' trading code to return main slots before sub slots in stackable and free space search processes. (If enough people ask for it, I'll add an optional rule to allow 'bag packing' * the original implementation behavior)

09/05/2014

  • Uleat Fix for cursor item loss when zoning. (Thanks to the other devs who traced and fixed the 'macro' issue!)

  • mackal Fix size getting nuked with lua's SendIllusionPacket

09/03/2014

  • Secrets Identified the routines needed to augment items in RoF. Currently, only Insert and Remove are supported. Swap and Destroy do not work due to missing functions related to the cursor.

  • mackal Added work around command to show numhits on your buffs (#shownumhits)

  • Uleat Fix for timer issue introduced by Zone::ShutDown() fix.

09/02/2014

  • Secrets Identified OP_GuildPromote for RoF clients.

  • Secrets Fixed promotion, demotion, transferring a leader and displaying of client ranks in the Rain of Fear client. The rain of fear client, as such, will only have 3 ranks like the other clients, but supports a theoretical 8 ranks later.

  • KLS Fixed a bug in turnins with new any abstraction

  • KLS Fixed a few quest related inconsistencies.

  • KLS Added Lua EntityList::ChannelMessage(from, type, msg, language)

08/30/2014

  • mackal (noudess) Merchants should be more descriptive of why they don't sell to you

08/26/2014

  • Uleat Implemented 'Smart' Player Trade transfers. Trades are processed by containers, stackables and then all remaining. QueryServ logs have been updated to match these transactions.

    Note: QueryServ logs previously listed 'Items' on the main entry table. This indicated the number of slots affected and not the actual number of items.

    This field now indicates the actual number of items transferred. For non-stackable, the value is '1' and stackable is the number of charges. A _detail_count

    property has been added to both 'Trade' and 'Handin' structs to indicate the number of details recorded..though, not tracked..it could be added.

08/24/2014

  • Uleat Fix (attempted) for zone crashes related to zone shut-down. This change disables all Mob AI and disables/deletes all Mob timers once Zone::ShutDown() is called. More areas will be addressed as reports come in.

    Note: Perl and Lua quests tested to work..please post any aberrant behavior. (I finally set my spell-check to US English...)

  • Akkadius Character creation process crash fix and query cleanup

  • Akkadius Created character_lookup table for applications that mirrors all character_ table fields minus blob fields for application lookups

    • A 2.4GB character_ table will take 7 seconds to query on a SSD versus .1s on the character_lookup table

    • This also causes applications like Magelo to burst reads of the entire character table because of the blob fields that come with the reads, as much as 500-600MB/s even if a indexed id filter is provided

    • This field is synchronized on player save and has 0.001s DB hit

    • When we split out from the blob, ideally this table can be removed

    • Required SQL: utils\sql\git\required\2014_08_24_character_lookup.sql

08/23/2014

  • Akkadius Changed zone process window title format, example: 'crushbone :: clients: 6 inst_id: 1 inst_ver: 0 :: port: 7015'

  • Akkadius Most of the following changes are QueryServ related, fully implemented its original functionality to be able to offload

    intensive or metric based logging to a remote server process that could exist on another server entirely

  • Akkadius Implemented Player Event Logging Types (Go to table qs_player_events)

1 = Player_Log_Quest,
2 = Player_Log_Zoning,
3 = Player_Log_Deaths,
4 = Player_Log_Connect_State,
5 = Player_Log_Levels,

10 = Player_Log_Trade_Skill_Events,
11 = Player_Log_Issued_Commands,
12 = Player_Log_Money_Transactions,
13 = Player_Log_Alternate_Currency_Transactions,
* All QueryServ logging will be implemented with a front end in EoC 2.0 very soon
* Architecture page: http://wiki.eqemulator.org/p?QueryServ_Architecture
  • Akkadius Changed all QS Error related logging to 'QUERYSERV__ERROR'

  • Akkadius (Natedog) (Crash Fix) Legacy MySQL bug revert for loading AA's

  • Akkadius Implemented Perl Quest objects (LUA still needed to be exported):

    • quest::qs_send_query("MySQL query") * Will send a raw query to the QueryServ process, useful for custom logging

    • quest::qs_player_event(char_id, event_desc); * Will process a quest type event to table qs_player_events

  • Akkadius Added MySQL Tables

    • qs_player_aa_rate_hourly

    • qs_player_events

    • Source table structures from:

      • utils\sql\git\queryserv\required\08_23_2014_player_events_and_player_aa_rate_hourly

        To get the complete QueryServ schema, source from here:

      • utils\sql\git\queryserv\required\Complete_QueryServ_Table_Structures.sql

  • Akkadius Added rules for each logging type, source rules here with them enabled by default:

  • Akkadius Spawn related logging cleanup

  • Akkadius General code cleanup

  • Akkadius More to come for QueryServ

08/22/2014

  • Uleat Rework of Trade::FinishedTrade() and Trade::ResetTrade() to parse items a little more intelligently.

Trade window items are now sent to client inventory in this order:

  • Bags

  • Partial stack movements

  • All remaining items

If any of these procedures cause any problems, please post them immediately.

08/20/2014

  • Uleat Rework of Trade::AddEntity() * function used to move items into the trade window. Now accepts argument for 'stack_size' and updates client properly.

    Note: I tested trade with Titanium:{SoF,SoD,UF,RoF} in both directions and no client generated an OP_MoveItem event for attempting to place a stackable

    onto a partial stack already in the trade window. The only way to achieve stacking is to click on the receiving client. If there is a partial stack remaining

    on the cursor after the OP_MoveItem event, and there is room available, the client will generate subsequent events to move the remaining count.

08/19/2014

  • Akkadius Implemented a Stop_Return feature (Accidental item handin prevention) that will be symmetrically used with plugin::return_items that I am currently running live testing on EZ before releasing to EQEmu. This does not hurt to have this in the source.

  • Akkadius Fixed crash where 'attacker' validation is not being checked

  • Akkadius Removed petition console spam that does not follow traditional logging and is useless

  • Akkadius Made fix with SympatheticProcChances where it was checking for TempItem->Focus.Effect instead of TempItemAug->Focus.Effect

08/18/2014

08/16/2014

  • KLS (addmoreice) Trying out some unstable DB changes. Do backup your database before trying them as master will be considered unstable for a few days at least.

    Uleat (Noudness): Fixed a floating-point comparison error that led to the notorious 'client bounce' (this is not related to the

    'mob falling' due to not having maps installed.) This fix also eliminates a sizeable amount of unnecessary out-going packets due

    to invalid orientation corrections.

    Note: This patch is probably of significant enough importance that admins may wish to manually apply this to older server builds.

    The number of packets reduced per second should be approximately (num_stationary_close_clients (num_close_clients 1)). This will

    likely have the most effect in zones like: Nexus, Bazaar, Guilds (Halls) and RAID INSTANCES * where players don't move around a lot.

08/15/2014

  • Uleat Reactivated the Bot::Spawn() code for sending post-spawn wear change updates..temporary until I can sort out the proper usage.

08/13/2014

Uleat (Kingly_Krab): Fix for bot chest armor graphic glitch. (fix also caused RoF #wc to work properly)

08/02/2014

  • Kayen Implemented spell_news fields

  • npc_no_los (check if LOS is required for spells)

  • InCombat, OutofCombat * Used together to restrict spells to only be cast while

    in/out of combat (beneficial) or if target is in/out of combat (detrimental).

    -min_dist, min_dist_mod, max_dist, max_dist_mod * Scales spell power based on targets distance from caster.

    *This will require further work to fully implement but will work with 90% of live spells as is.

    *If making custom spells do not include effects that can't be scaled (like a spell trigger)

  • min_rage sets minimum distance range that must be away from target.

07/31/2014

  • Uleat More inventory slot constant conversions. This should be the bulk of everything..but, due to the size of the server code, there

    may be some hidden ones. (client_packet.cpp and the client translators still need a thorough review.)

    Note: Please report any abnormal behaviour with inventory-related content..each diff file was reviewed 3 times..but, things CAN be missed.

  • Uleat Test fix for client crashes in Bazaar, while actively selling, with a charm in the Trader's Satchel.

07/27/2014

  • Uleat More updates to the dictionary. Added a 'constants' file for each client translator..these will tie-in to the dictionary. Started

    replacement of hard-coded numeric values with a pre-defined constant. This will help in the transition.

07/16/2014

  • Uleat Initial commit of new client/server 'dictionaries' * work in-progress... Changed equipment slot references to reflect new naming

    conventions. Lua enumerations maintain both the old and new names as to not break existing scripts..but, the old names are deprecated.

07/14/2014

  • KLS Changes to CMake build

    • Lua builds by default now

    • Common has been renamed common

    • Binary files will now be put into ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/bin instead of ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/Bin

    • The last two are of note to people on non-windows systems as case sensitivity is important. Edit your scripts accordingly, thank you.

07/10/2014

  • Kayen Updated table npc_spells to now support defensive and ranged procs.

    Note: Proc rate modifier work as it does for spell effects (ie 200 = 200% baseline chance modifier)

    Table is also now contains 12 AI spell casting variables that can be set to fine tune casting behaviors per spell set.

    Global default rules have also been added that can further fine tune all content if no specific variables are set.

Descriptions of new AI casting fields in npc_spells 'fail_recast' AI spell recast time(MS) when an spell is cast but fails (ie stunned) 'engaged_no_sp_recast_min' AI spell recast time(MS) checked when no spell is cast while engaged in combat. (min time in random) 'engaged_no_sp_recast_max' AI spell recast time(MS) checked when no spell is cast while engaged in combat.

(max time in random) 'idle_b_chance' Chance to cast a beneficial spell while idle (ie cast heal on self while out of combat).

  • Kayen Updated table npc_types, adding field 'ranged_type' and 'ammo_idfile' 'ranged_type' Will set what skill / animation is used when NPC uses a ranged attacked (special ability 11) 'ammo_idfile' Will set what projectile graphic an NPC uses in a ranged attacked (special ability 11) Format IT#### (same as item 'idfile') (Set to IT11118 for some fun) Added parameters: SPECATK_RANGED_ATK = 11 Param0: Min Ranged distance (default: 25) Param1: Max Ranged distance (default: 250) Param2: Percent Chance to Hit modifier Param3: Percent Total Damage modifier

  • Kayen Updated to Chance to Hit code with how bonuses are applied to be consistent for all effects. Added field to npc_types 'Avoidance' which will modify chance to avoid melee Added rules to set max and min chance to hit from melee/ranged (Default 95% / 5%)

04/29/2014

  • KLS Implemented new map code based on some of Derision's earlier work. Old maps still work with this system and don't need to be regenerated. We're still working on a new azone solution for better/more efficient maps.

04/27/2014

  • Kayen Implemented new table 'npc_spells_effects' and 'npc_spells_effects_entires'

  • Implemented new field in 'npc_spell_effects_id' in npc_types.

    • These are used to directly apply spell effect bonuses to NPC's without requirings spells/buffs. Example: Allow an npc to spawn with an innate 50 pt damage shield and a 5% chance to critical hit. Please see the wiki page: http://wiki.eqemulator.org/p?npc_spell_effects_entries for details. *NPC's can now do critical heals / damage spells if bonus is applied from table.

  • Akkadius Fix for the Fix for the Fix: Rule Combat:OneProcPerWeapon was created so that you can revert to the original proc functionality for custom servers that have balanced their content around having more than 1 aug proc on weapons. By having this rule set to 'false' you revert this functionality. This rule is set to 'true' by default as the original functionality from Live was intended to be

  • Akkadius (Performance Adjustment) Removed AsyncLoadVariables from InterserverTimer.Check() in both zone and world. By watching the MySQL general.log file on mass zone idle activity, you can see that the query 'SELECT varname, value, unix_timestamp() FROM variables where unix_timestamp(ts) >= timestamp' is called every 10 seconds. This function is loading variables that are initially loaded on World and Zone bootup. When running a large amount of zone servers, the amount of MySQL chatter that is produced is enormous and unnecessary.
