@thenomain said in FuzzBallMUCK (fbmuck) new installation questions:
Maybe someone else who knows MUCKs will make noise for you, so hang tight and see what comes of it.
Oh, that's fine. I was planning on learning MPI, MUF, and such on my own, not really from here. But, my aforementioned partner has been a contributing member here in this forum and I thought, if I'm going to run my own MUCK, I might as well check it out too.
When the MUCK is up and stable I'll post about it, but for now, I'm still working on it, as you can see.
Thanks for the heads up on the audience and goings-on of the forum, I'll keep that in mind.
@munsell Quick -- maybe dumb -- question: was the wiki you were attempting to install 'Semantic Mediawiki'? That isn't a full wiki installation; it's an extension to install over top of an existing normal wiki installation. (It's confusing because initially it sounds like a drop-in replacement if it's the first time you're doing it... and I know it tells you to install it through composer, so that's why I'm asking.)
I'm not entirely sure how to fix it, but if that's what happened, one of the more server-savvy folks around may be able to help you resolve it.
Probably better advice for a Windows user is to just get xVM VirtualBox from https://www.virtualbox.org/ and install linux on it so you actually run your server stuff in a virtual environment on your Windows desktop. This converts your linux box to an application that you start just like any other application in Windows, and you can stick a shortcut to the vbox definition into your Start Menu->Programs->Startup folder to make the linux box start up along with your Windows box. Totally free.
Just make sure you tell vBox to use a "bridged network adapter" when you're creating the original machine, so the linux box can have its own unique IP Address instead of sharing one with the host OS, and enable virtualization extensions only if your CPU supports them.
After that you can install linux and make vBox take a "snapshot" so if you muck anything up you can roll back to that and start over again. Then you get your lamp stack working right, take another "snapshot" before you start trying to install addons like your wiki or bb, so you can roll back if you break something. vBox is a great little tool.
Edit: Forgot to mention that with this setup you can install samba to configure filesharing between Windows and Linux, then as long as your samba user/password matches your Windows user/password you'll be able to access any shares you define through Network->SystemIP->FolderName just like it was any other Windows box with filesharing enabled.
You can't change it, but maybe this helps.
All commands can be separated with a ';'.
Example: n;l green;s;say Dan Dare is back! -- do these 4 commands
There are several ways ';'s can be overruled.
Example: \say Hello ;) -- Lines starting with a '\' aren't parsed by tintin.
Example: say Hello \;) -- The escape character can esape 1 letter.
Here's a broad pastiche MUSH, with a Romance of the Three Kingdoms faction build, an Alpha Centauri Probe Team setting, Cold War faction dynamics, and a proposed combat system resembling your average late 1990s FPS.
@theonceler said in iOS 11 and MudRammer:
I mean that when I use it on my iPad Pro in iOS 11 it will drop connection if I spend more than a few seconds switched out to any other app.
When MUDRammer transitions to background, it will attempt to stay alive as long as iOS will allow. This varies with your device's hardware, current memory pressure, and the demands of the currently foregrounded app(s) — games, videos, and web can be very demanding indeed, and the system will ruthlessly kill backgrounded apps as needed.
The system employs subtle and nuanced magic here, but because MUDRammer is open-source, you can see for yourself exactly what its socket library GCDAsyncSocket can (and cannot) do when enabling backgrounding.
Same goes for if I use it on my phone while connected to Wifi. It's more reliable if I turn Wifi off and just use an LTE connection.
Guys, I'm talking real dollaridoos here. $2.99? $4.99? Even $7.99? Uh, yes sir. The sky is the limit. The app store sky, though. So like $7.99. I'm not about to pay Through the Ages or Twilight Struggle money here.
I experimented with MUDRammer pricing between $1 and $5 and saw no meaningful difference in sales. This too is subtle and nuanced magic, but it suggests the price was still too low.
MUDRammer was my personal side project in my spare time. I never did charge for MUDRammer what I believed it was worth.
@magee101 said in Mass Effect MU*?:
Is there a website or connect info for this project?
No, there is not.
Project remains in progress. The holiday season has made life difficult. The partner demands time with me, and I must oblige.
After that, sure.
@faraday There's no intent to be condescending here. Just a response to:
@faraday said in Original Sci-Fi?:
I agree in broad strokes. The only place I think that breaks down is when you start talking about science.
...which read like science as an exception that is truly different and must be handled in a different manner and held to different standards than other subjects.
Edit: Further: I have gone out of my way to note that I do not believe you have negative intentions, have clearly labeled 'generic' you to confirm I am speaking generally and not attempting to attack you in any personal way, have refrained from ascribing nasty motives to you, or snarking at you with sarcastic cracks and accusations. I would appreciate it if this courtesy was returned, as it isn't the place for it, and it isn't the conversation anyone is interested in having here.
