ZRPG Evolved [VERSION 1.9.2] - 9/7/2015
« on: February 28, 2012, 12:24:45 am »
Hello all, I am finally releasing my ZRPG Evolved script to the general populous!

If any of you remember my server you will know this isn't the most stable script, but it is still awesome. Server owners that wish to run this script fulltime will need to be vigilant. There are automatic recovery techniques implemented, but every once in a while they fail and a manual fix is required. In such an event the account file gets corrupted. A backup is saved every day at midnight(iirc) into the backups folder, to recover a backup you need to shut your server down, delete the accounts.txt, copy the newest good backup from the backup folder to the main script folder and rename it to accounts.txt. This should not happen that often.

Bots are spawned in a very unique way. The maximum number of zombies can be set in the constants at the top of the script file. Every time someone joins the server, levels up, or logs in or out the procedure MaintainBots is called. This procedure calculates what I call a botvalue based upon the number of players total/< avg lvl/> avg lvl, and the average level among all players, those below the global average level, and those above the global average level. This allows for the most balanced and diverse botvalue. This botvalue is then passed down into the wave generator. This wave generator compiles a list of zombie types that should be in the current attack wave. This is done by taking the botvalue and comparing it to the botcost of each type of zombie and choosing the highest cost zombie that can be afforded and repeating the process until there are enough zombies(the aforementioned constant). The normal run-of-the-mill zombie has a botcost of 0 so there will always be at least x many zombies. The botvalues may be edited in the bots.txt. (more on this later)

The skills.txt file contains all of the settings for every skill. The format is as follows:
skillname[level]token=value
possible tokens:
cost........Sp cost to purchase
mcost.......Mana cost to cast
scost.......Soul cost to cast
minlvl......Min lvl to purchase
specint1....Specialty variable
specint2....Specialty variable
specfloat2..Specialty variable
cooldown....Cooldown in seconds

Bot Editing:
To edit the bots you need to understand the line IDs. For some reason I did not make the bot files work in the same manner as the skill file. So an editor must know what data each line contains. This information may be found in the constants of the script, but I will paste them here for convenience:
Bot Files (scripts/zrpgevolved/bots):
These files configure the stats of all zombies and players. These stats include, maximum health, health regen, powerups, forced weapon, death effects, ect. When a new zombie is added it is assigned the data from the corresponding .txt file, all players/bots without a .txt file in the bots folder are assigned Player.txt. Specialized bots may still be add with the /addbot command even if they are not assigned by the botwave system. Such as the Elite Slicer Zombie. He is incredibly strong, I added him as a joke.
max health: 1
health regen: 2
weapon: 3
bonus: 4
damage mult: 5
manaworth: 6
spworth: 7
spchance: 8
minxp: 9
maxxp: 10
botkind*: 11
botwaveammount: 12 (bullets emitted on death)
botwavestl: 13
botwavespeed: 14
soulworth: 15

*botkind is used to indicate special zombie types:
Code: [Select]
normal:
   id:0
   special properties: none
sdmg:
   id:1
   special properties: reflects damage a player inflicts (nonfatal)
mirror:
   id:2
   special properties: reflects actual bullets that hit it directly back at you
kamikaze:
   id:3
   special properties: dies and lets its deathwave bullets fly when it inflicts damage (best used with chainsaw)
copycat:
   id:4
   special properties: respawns with the weapon its killer was wielding

Bot Wave:
You may edit the botcost(loot at previous paragraph) of each bot in a similar way. Look in the bots.txt file in scripts/zrpgevolved/. The lineIDs are as follows. AT LEAST ONE ZOMBIE TYPE HAS TO COST 0 (or negative)!!!!
Code: [Select]
sbcopycat: 1
sbdemon: 2
sbdoppleganger: 3
sbeliteslicerzombie: 4
sbelitezombie: 5
sbghoul: 6
sbgrimreaper: 7
sbkamakazi: 8
sbmirror: 9
sbmummy: 10
sbnitrokamakazi: 11
sbrocketzombie: 12
sbslicerzombie: 13
sbturncoat: 14
sbvortex: 15
sbzombie: 16
sbxpbank: 17

Most of the main messages that are shown to players may be edited in the three .txt files in scripts/zrpgevolved/info/. The skillinfo.txt can be edited, but if done improperly it will not work.

To install this script just extract the .zip file into the ROOT of your server, this is so the .bot files are added as well.

NOTE: If you were running my original ZRPG script you can convert the old account files to the new system with this small app I made. Just place it  in your old accounts folder and it will compile them into the new accounts.txt.

Thats pretty much everything I can think of.

|-|-|- Edit 7/9/2013 -|-|-|
Modified all floating point outputs to show minimum precision, 15. instead of 15.0000000 or 2.25 instead of 2.2500125. This was working when I released it, but a scriptcore update broke the RoundTo() function.

|-|-|- Edit 11/16/2014 -|-|-|
Fixed an issue caused by new version of the server, wherein WeaponNameByNum() fails to work properly when called during script compilation causing the following error:
  • [Error] zrpgevolved -> AppOnIdle(1942:4) Exception: "" is an invalid integer.
|-|-|- Edit 1/3/2015 -|-|-|
In a recent change by the devs, the numerical IDs associated with the secondary and special weapons were rearranged. This caused havoc, as most of the zombies, that should be wielding chainsaws, were given bows. This update fixes this issue. Also added some code in the account loading function to allow me to not package an empty account file with the download, so you can just overwrite all files without having to fear for wiping your player's accounts.

|-|-|- Edit 9/7/2015 -|-|-|
Fixed an issue wherein the random() function was being passed floating point numbers as arguments rather than integers. This has always been called this way, but has spontaneously started causing problems.
Added a few safeguards to prevent crashing or error spams if key files are not present for any reason.

|-|-|- Edit 9/7/2015 -|-|-|
Fixed a major issue wherein the account file would not be saved propery.

Hacktank, my friend's got a problem with your script.
When we create and save account, there is no problem here.
Mapchanged and we looked to accounts and accoundindex, our accounts are saved there.
BUT if we close server and start it again, there are no accounts anymore.
Something in script has (I guess) cleared the "accounts" and "accountsindex" files.
There is no any problem or log on CMD SCREEN. You guess what occures this problem?
EDIT: Script is 1.9.1, game 1.6.8 server 2.7.8


EDIT: v1.9.2 fixed the problem. Thanks.

Hacktank, I've translated your 1.8 script to Turkish completely. But it took my some weeks. You know.
Now I think that I will do it again cause I've deleted my all works so I need translate them again.
Atm I could do it on 1.9.2 but if you release new one; maybe you could share part of changes? Not completely script because when you release news I can't translate again all columns.
For example, new 1.9.3; from this part to this part has changed with new one like that; 24. column "abc" to "def".
I mean could you share completely new script and changed parts too for us do it manually?
Is there anybody can write script?
Good, go and play soldat ^^
