Well, new server is up here, but it'll be a bit before it's swapped in multivac.ninjawars.net
Tchalvak
Bear with me while I swap in a new server, and let me know if you hit any error messages.
physicsp
dp and OM, you're old-heads! I still feel like the new guy with my account created 8 years ago
physicsp
Tchal, thanks for still updating this. I'll try to sign in more

hello everyone
Over_Medicated
And I think the counter is a good idea
Over_Medicated
My avatar is dead sexy. Don't be jealous of my ladies..
Tchalvak
Heh heh
deadpool
counter: Yes/Si
Tchalvak
So horrible.
Tchalvak
Also, Over_Medicated, change that avatar, ugh.
Tchalvak
Think I should put a counter on the player profiles for how "old" characters are?
Bravos
Thanks :)
Tchalvak
Gotta get a competitor.
Tchalvak
Mmmm
deadpool
now if only Tch- would resurrect an take the cap off the ranking system i could finally go on to Level 400
deadpool
tnx much, Over_Medicated O,+; I try to personify Greatness
Over_Medicated
That should say congrats...
Over_Medicated
Also co grats dead on the decade, on top for most of it as well
Over_Medicated
I would be completely shocked if any of us ever run out if mushrooms if I'm honest
deadpool
futile really
deadpool
after using all that weaponry on me - you should have saved your turns
deadpool
You have killed Tchalvak .. curiosity killed the cat .. after all
deadpool
you figure i'd have saved a few for reserves by now - a decade (OG)
deadpool
Account Created: 10 years ago
Tchalvak
Anyway, showing how many turns one has left is important, I just haven't figured out how to re-implement it yet.
Tchalvak
Well, I was talking also about your extra reserve of Amanita mushrooms.
deadpool
i log in and have a 100 turns everyday - nothing more than that needed nowadays
deadpool
just think of it like being the Federal Treasury .. they replenish their own currency like going to kinkos an printing out a term paper - easy enough right ;)
deadpool
run out of turns: of course not due to replenishing each an everyday
deadpool
.. be a ..*
deadpool
must a tech-contractor
Tchalvak
At my new job, and wish I could pull it on over to nw, just have so little time
Tchalvak
Doing lots of new design work stuff
Tchalvak
I'm suspicious. :p
Tchalvak
Though, really, do you and deadpool ever run out of turns....
Tchalvak
Turns is a problem, yeah, I've been thinking about adding back in a counter/countdown.
Tchalvak
Get your health down a bit and it should go across half of the screen instead of the full screen.
Tchalvak
It's the small orange bar, try it out.
Tchalvak
On the main page.
Tchalvak
There is a health bar.
Bravos
then need to refresh to see anything new :/ it doesnt update
Bravos
"chat archive" and led to new window to say anything
Bravos
The problem is it seems inconvenient having to go to a new page to check those things while you are attacking.. still no health values there...and talking in chat in inconvient compared to how it was when I used to play.. again need to click on "chat
Bravos
ok, I see it now
deadpool
Top link bar > "Skills": you should seeYour status is ______ You currently have have ____ turns. You currently have #### ki.
Bravos
hard to see if I am running low
Bravos
where can I see how much turns I have left? my health bar and turn bar is not there anymore
Jezails
hi
deadpool
tnx
Tchalvak
Pushed a "heal" button below the "you are dead" message when viewing a ninja's profile. Also fixed combat settings to save correctly (again, that area is always breaking, but I got some tests on it)
Tchalvak
Hai
zino123
hey everyone
Tchalvak
(You may have to CTRL-R or CTRL-F5 refresh to fully see it.
Tchalvak
Added it to the news, but there is now a healthbar at the top to more easily show your current health percent.
deadpool
look out :)) (You have killed Tchalvak with Shuriken!)
deadpool
def surprised .. urban ninja ..
Tchalvak
http://ninjawars-splash.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com
Tchalvak
You can preview it here:
Tchalvak
Noooope, not yet, but you'll definitely know when I do, it looks completely different.
need4speed
oh look you guys upgraded it huh
deadpool
sweet ;O,o;
Tchalvak
Working on an update to the homepage, don't be surprised when it looks totally different. :p
deadpool
across all platforms/browsers ('cept Safari: don't use any further further)
deadpool
Skills > turn count (You currently have have _____): repetitive
Tchalvak
And more importantly, I can't run it because it only runs on Macs and I'm on Linux.
Tchalvak
Safari doesn't support a lot of the newers stuff.
Tchalvak
Technical limitations of the browsers and time I have available to debug bugs in general being limited.
deadpool
any particular reason or you just don't have preference for it?
Tchalvak
Supported browsers are: Google Chrome latest, Firefox latest, Internet Explorer Latest.
deadpool
'cept*
Tchalvak
Just be aware that I won't really be able to fix any bugs in Safari.
Tchalvak
Oh feel free to use it if you like.
deadpool
ic - now i know - just won't use it further; firefox, opera, .. all browsers 'kept safari I take it?
Tchalvak
browser.
Tchalvak
Sorry, but I/we don't support safari.
Tchalvak
Oh, maybe the previous conversation about Safari.
Tchalvak
I'm not sure what specifically you're referring to, though.
Tchalvak
Well, yeah it does.
deadpool
the game just seems to display differently on various platforms - not all that difficult to fix if time permitted, that is O.o
deadpool
not really an impasse at all, Dark Lord
Tchalvak
An impasse.
Tchalvak
well damn
deadpool
also shows*
deadpool
i was on Safari 10.2.1 at the time - now on Stainless Shuriken says "reduces health" - perhaps bug thru different browsers - Cab browser all shows Shuriken: "reduces health"
Tchalvak
Shuriken says "reduces health"
Tchalvak
I only get that for Caltrops.
deadpool
P.p. reduces turns ... simple
deadpool
Inventory> Shuriken: reduces turns (item description)
deadpool
Inventory> Phosphor Powders: "burns fiercely" (item description)
deadpool
awhole lot easier*
deadpool
i realize you told me how busy and tied up you've been lately otherwise I would have suggested a complete re-write - awhile lot it easier than having to sort through everything
Tchalvak
That stuff is not easy enough to debug when it breaks currently.
Tchalvak
Looks likely that I'm just going to have to do a full rewrite of the resurrect/poison/heal/turn gain timed code, still.
Tchalvak
(as the healing and resurrection happens over time, and then the hack fixes health after them)
Tchalvak
:p
Tchalvak
We'll see if the fix holds.
Tchalvak
Sweet.
deadpool
http://www.shadowville.com/124471/genres/rnb-beats/love-letter
deadpool
seems to be working ok, Tnx Tch-
Tchalvak
For now I've increased the frequency of the health fix and turned back on the heal/turn gain scripts.
Tchalvak
Yeah, it was a problem with turning off the timed scripts to prevent the level 1s from healing or resurrecting to 5000hp
deadpool
turns are not replenishing - for 2 days now turn count is not increasing with time .. fix needed
deadpool
it*
deadpool
... seems like if this was a tug boat is would have sunk along time ago .. so many holes to "patch" up .. cold steal does not function correctly and gives invalid target after 2 attempts on target
Tchalvak
Well, a temporary patch.
Tchalvak
Ok, trying out a new fix for the 5K+ resurrection bug.
deadpool
v @Tch-
deadpool
even now with the temporary every 2 day resurrect they've still resurrected with over 5K+ health..
deadpool
fix the problem with resurrects at 5K+ health ..
Tchalvak
Ho ho ho
deadpool
In the end, to gain all, you have to risk all. Or more.
Tchalvak
Well, it'd be good to show turns on the main page all the time anyway, probably.
Tchalvak
*nods*
deadpool
while expending mushrooms instead of showing your current health why not have it show the players turn count (in real time)
Tchalvak
Hey
JaymanMatthews
Hi! I'm new here.
Tchalvak
Probably. For example I added a lot of links to map locations that eventually will have to go away, but for now don't need to. Anyway, do you have an example?
deadpool
a lot of the same information or links on the supposed different pages
deadpool
this layout is very redundant
deadpool
* burps * <-;,...,;-> just finished the list
deadpool
v functions ::: "bugs" needing of corrective implementation (fixes)
deadpool
firebolt, Stealth attack, on the item use page: amount of time should be displayed and the amount of turns as inventory mushrooms are used should display, compared to "flying blind"
deadpool
while your at it - include fix for zombies not to resurrect with 5K+ health
Tchalvak
Set up the temporary refresh fix to run once every 2 days (at 1-am-ish)
Tchalvak
I guess I'll put the temporary fix on a timer for now.
Tchalvak
(I really gotta fix the auto-refresh. :p)
Tchalvak
Refreshed.
Tchalvak
Done.
viper1993
hello
deadpool
refresh the list
Tchalvak
Ah, yeah, I know that that is, I'll try to fix that up.
deadpool
v -- firebolt action link is broken - allows 1st action but subsequent gives this message as it automatically takes you to the skills page .. attempted firebolt on various accounts but same failure occurred ..
deadpool
Invalid target [170693] for skill [Fire Bolt].
Tchalvak
To say it again 'cause it's probably a bit lost under the text, class change works as intended again, so good to go there.
Tchalvak
So if you find an out-of-date area of the wiki, feel free to just update it (except things that are bugs, of course).
Tchalvak
As far as the wiki, the point with the wiki is that stuff in the game changes, balance gets modified, new stuff is added, so the wiki may become out of date. It's great to still use it (I'd rather update the wiki than the game faq, much easier).
Tchalvak
Stalk is a skill that results in a status effect until you next die or lose the status. Currently STALKING status increases your strength at the expense of your speed, and a slight decrease in stamina/max health.
Tchalvak
Ki is a special/weird energy resource that you get more of for attacking stronger characters, and less or none of for attacking lower level/weaker characters. You can currently use it to heal, but the intent is to make more skills require it.
Tchalvak
Fixed the bug with class change, & deployed.
deadpool
*
deadpool
attempted action on varous browsers: Dojo > white monk > change class function is not working .. other words, wont let player change class
deadpool
also, explain "Ki" and its use or future use/role... NW 101 0,0
deadpool
and btw, the "stalk" action under the "Skills" action link - ..... how do you use it and what does it exactly do .. you know since the wiki isn't to be used or trusted...
deadpool
explain "ideally quite minor" .. thereabouts approximation 0,+; if you would be so kind ..
Tchalvak
So there may be some (ideally quite minor) downtime.
Tchalvak
Just FYI, in the near future we will be moving to a new server.
Tchalvak
List refreshed.
deadpool
tnx (thumbs up) **
Tchalvak
'tis done.
deadpool
when you get a chance ..
deadpool
refresh the list
deadpool
it took 66 turns - but you return 65 turns and keep the 1 for the action - we can call it even.. ..
deadpool
also, I need those turns back the bug cost me with Stealth attack action
deadpool
ok ill send you screenshots to the game gmail account (the forums don't seem to be active anymore) - due to the Ninjawars economy being in a depression at this time I'd hate to waste inventory but if its for the greater good sure why not ..
Tchalvak
But both weapons are very random, of course.
Tchalvak
As far as damage, if Phosphor consistently does less damage than shuriken, get me some screenshots of that, 'cause that certainly is a bug.
Tchalvak
It's not an authoritative source.
Tchalvak
The wiki should always be updated to match reality.
deadpool
Shuriken: "Causes damage to a target. Damage: 1 to strength." <--- once again direct from the wiki -,-
deadpool
v P.p.
deadpool
not interchangeable: "Causes damage to a target. Stronger than shurikens. Damage: 30 + 1 to strength." <--- direct from the wiki
deadpool
no matter where P.p. are to be "acquired" from - shuriken and P.p. cause the same damage with P.p. even causing less damage at times - these are supposed to be 2 different weapons
Tchalvak
But cheapest.
Tchalvak
Err, not easiest, to get them from the mobs.
Tchalvak
I'm remembering now that that's why the phosphor powder costs so much.
Tchalvak
easiest & best way to get the materials is out in the field, from the mobs.
Tchalvak
....discount store, you know?
Tchalvak
The shop is essentially a convenience store, not a...
Tchalvak
(that applies to most of the items)
Tchalvak
Right, the reason that phosphor powder is so expensive is because you're not supposed to buy it at the shop.
Tchalvak
Why, though?
deadpool
*
deadpool
Phosphor powder either needs to increase in damage (not to the wallet) offensively or be brought down in price - i s'pose one could just opt to not purchase an instead purchase just shuriken bu thats besides the point
deadpool
Fire scroll: Phosphor Powders -,- sure
Tchalvak
The stealth attack thing, yeah, I gotta log and fix that.
Tchalvak
I assume you mean what is phosphor powder now?
Tchalvak
Eh?
deadpool
action: stealth attack - <> - "ninja" has entire turn count depleted upon performing this action < requires fix ..
deadpool
[ /damage :: :: offensive alt> 50 gold < fire scroll\ end feed]
deadpool
train of thought .. perhaps a simple observation: : : no justification fire scrolls should be marked up when they r the same as shuriken - ^ - simple fix
Tchalvak
refreshed

wtf game is not pokie ninja looolll
