Over_Medicated
Good shit bro. Sounds like a good damn time actually. Stay safe
Mr_Deadpool
i have properties down in Guerrero n its very nice this time of year
Mr_Deadpool
Actually faired very well - took a nice 2 week vacation for this last one; went up to Dallas :: for this 1 I'm taking a flight tonite down to Mexico n i plan on staying for a week or so O,o
Over_Medicated
Hey dead, how you doing with the new round of hurricanes. Heard Galveston got kicked in the dick again
Tchalvak
This line actually pretty much controls almost all of it: https://github.com/BitLucid/ninjawars/blob/59073a539407f0992617a6081d7cb08dbc956538/deploy/lib/data/Deity.php#L227
Tchalvak
The formulas are here, but somehow the nymbers go wild in one of them. https://github.com/BitLucid/ninjawars/tree/master/deploy/cron
Tchalvak
Yeah, it’s a regeneration glitch.
Mr_Deadpool
perhaps during abnormal list resurrections: a bit of glitch admin supposed to get around to that.. at some point.
Sano
thanks, saw the level 1s with 5k life. looks like a great game.
Mr_Deadpool
usually im able to work 100 turns twice a day.
Mr_Deadpool
ive been clocking 2 per hour 'cept The Blue shinobi gets 3 per hour [in exchange for their strength; weakest class of Ninja]
Sano
how many turns do you get each day?
kadenangrosas
lol
Mr_Deadpool
*<-;...;->*
kadenangrosas
i cant believe my eyes i see you here....:-D
Tchalvak
I have a few updates to how combat and dueling look waiting on the wings. Have to get deployment working right again.
Tchalvak
Heyoo, doubled the server cpu power, what could go wrong? Answer: nothing, it’ll only be good, surely...
Tchalvak
We're back, server upgrade of the php version brought us down. Check the news page for a bit more details there.
Mr_Deadpool
bug perhaps:: "Lurking ninja:" contains current dead ninja links : press link in order to spree and it takes to a dead ninja page= possible fix..
Mr_Deadpool
JetFuelFeelz :: novice lvl 1 with health over 2K+ on a regular rez.. really 0,o
Mr_Deadpool
bounty was only up there for over a week but nonetheless still an Honor.
Mr_Deadpool

boo
murmkuma
Still aint nothin to fuck with P-O-SS-E been holdin it down since 2003 :P
Tchalvak
17+ years
Tchalvak
Since at least 2003
kadenangrosas
NW still kickin
Tchalvak
Whoops, server issue, but now we’re back.
Mr_Deadpool
well before I thats for sure; I was introduced to this game by Izmi back in 2007 right after I had EtS'd from the Service .. haven't stopped logging in since then
Mekrotsidalb
I think I played NW first time about 2003 or so
Mr_Deadpool
seems to me that if anyone were compared to you or Nightstalker or even Izmi they would all be much much younger than you
Mr_Deadpool
Bladistorkem, you've played for many of years :: what was it that you happened to read about me exactly
Mr_Deadpool
did you also happen to read Stormy by any chance..
Mekrotsidalb
Last time I read, you still were young, "Mr_Deadpool"
Mekrotsidalb
Hi! Long time no read you!
Mr_Deadpool
and if Rank was any sort of an age indicator I'd be much much older by now ;)
Mr_Deadpool
You become old? << Ninja Stats shows that in fact you do ...
kadenangrosas
😢
Tchalvak
You become old?
Mr_Deadpool
thats correct :: this is what happens when you've been around for awhile
Over_Medicated
did you go and get married or are you just an old man now???
Over_Medicated
so....its mr deadpool now???
Tchalvak
Hmmm, I have to mess with the chat timestamps soon.
Tchalvak
testing something new.
Tchalvak
Hmmm
Tchalvak
Cool
Stormy
Yeah i use discord all the time, you can add me Stormyc66 #4956
Tchalvak
To be clear, not starting the discord for ninjawars specifically, just for separate gaming in general.
Tchalvak
And of course we have chat already.
Tchalvak
I'm just now starting up a discord for general gaming, though perhaps ninjawars isn't exactly the game to need discord like that, more like a play for a bit a day game.
Tchalvak
So do people here use discord at all regularly?
Stormy
Nah don’t have a switch :/ super cute game tho. My pc just died trying to figure out what’s wrong with it.-_-
Bravos
nope, i play COD
Tchalvak
Ah well.
Tchalvak
Anyone play animal crossing that I could add you? DM me if so.
Stormy
Wut
Mr_Deadpool
Stormy :: reallyyy .. wow
Tchalvak
that's essentially a straight up omission that I have to fix.
Tchalvak
Well, I certainly need to get the turns back in place, it's just that the long-ago update took turns out, I have to add a badge back in, like: (99) that counts down as you use turns.
Bravos
Also, i would really like the backspace attacking to work again. That was the main way I used to attack and level up. It used to refresh the page automatically so the dead ninja will not remain on the page and show as being alive still
Bravos
as it is now, if we hit zero we have to ask someone to help us, or make a second account to get us back in the game lol
Bravos
or if we hit zero there should be a way we can pay / lose kills as a pentality to get back going
Bravos
i agree about the stats.. I dont know when my turns are running low and often hit 0 and can't play
Mr_Deadpool
clean up the Ninja list - listed/shown based on level(s) - perhaps make it possible to reach 355 and increase possible level(s) every 3 months or so ...
Stormy
Would also be nice if i could see my stats at all times. Maybe the top right coner where it's empty? Unless your purpuose was to not be able to see it when killing ninja. lol
Stormy
Also, it didn't drop anything :(
Stormy
Uhh maybe making new characters that are a little more challenging for higher levels? like i attacked the dragon one and i killed it like nothing. I'm assuming that the highest "Beast" you have put up or maybe just changing the damage it does.
Stormy
Is that hard? like new coding for it or something?
Tchalvak
In the meantime do you guys have thoughts on the current game?
Tchalvak
Perhaps obviously that site is in pre-beta phase.
Tchalvak
Trying to get something more mobile friendly, a modern chat, and more screen real-estate for fights.
Tchalvak
https://shell.ninjawars.net/
Tchalvak
I'm still working away on the "shell.ninjawars.net" site replacement, essentially rewriting it into a new technology.
Tchalvak
So want to discuss cool features for the game?
Tchalvak
Has been pretty peaceful so far. The downside is that it has been pretty peaceful so far. :p
Stormy
Damn. That's insane, yeah a lot of places are shutting down ever since that shelter in place order. Goin on 2 weeks of being home from work. Also a blessing and a curse at once.
Mr_Deadpool
currently employed by ExxonMobil :: got me working 6 days a week 10-12 hours a day -_- a blessing and a curse all at once
Mr_Deadpool
coronavirus: im still working - I've been deemed Critically Essential Employee Infrastructure
Mr_Deadpool

Bravos
yup.. basically locked inside

I mean, if you are in lockdown or whatever.
Tchalvak
So how is everyone doing with coronavirus?

Currently just that “same domain” bugfix, but I’m working on more.
Tchalvak
See: http://www.ninjawars.net/#!/news
Mr_Deadpool
any of these "updates" posted on the wiki or chat forum:: facebook ... perhaps O.o
Tchalvak
Updated & more updates incoming.

We're home here in Vegas. Casinos are shutting down, very eerie vibe. Moreso with the san fransisco lockdown
Tchalvak
I’m still working in the office, sadly, which is rather pointless for a programmer. I’d rather be working from home by now.
Mr_Deadpool
the only thing hurt'n is my investments :: in the last 5 days I've lost all over 10K :: if I pull out now they'll retain 20% and penalize me 10% :: its all about the greenbacks n nothing else.
Mr_Deadpool
im rockin a mohawk and my royal blue converse high tops :: kill'n it.
Over_Medicated
Interesting times in the world these days. Hows every one doing??

it warms my heart to see this website still going :D

I have to set up timed events to help synchronize when people are online, someday.

Looks like none of the people I used to talk to are still active.
UglyNasty
It's wild, I used to be on here years ago.
Mr_Deadpool
of course you never saw this .. because no one is here .. not even me (vanishes)
Mr_Deadpool
no ..
UglyNasty
Anyone still here?
Mr_Deadpool
*<-;...;->*
Tchalvak
Yeah, I’ll try to get a fix in place for that.
Tchalvak
Ah, hmmm
Bravos
Cannot Attack: You can not attack a ninja from the same domain.
Mr_Deadpool
due to*
Mr_Deadpool
i was using stainless & iCab browser(s) at the time - must have been duet that - I can see it on Opera & Firefox now
Tchalvak
Have to have the extra turns needed to do so in the shrine. It’s still there, just not until you have the turns and kills.
Mr_Deadpool
Dojo Advancement Chart wording needs to be changed .. wt is going on O,o
Mr_Deadpool
what the ... how are Ninja supposed change their class ... & obtain Dimz .. ...
Tchalvak
That’s a new one, but makes sense. What happens on the daily refresh, do you stay negative?
Legend
yo Tchalvak did you know if you keep trying to do stuff after your out of turns you just keep going more negative? It doesn't allow you to do the action but you go more negative in turns
Legend
Happy thanksgiving guys
Bravos
that is interesting! it would be cool to try it out. I do use fight page but the backspace thing has the same issue. I use fight page more often now too. thanks!
Tchalvak
That is.
Tchalvak
*** So In the future if you are off at the shrine you can NOT attack someone who is in the fields.
Tchalvak
To make the map a place you move around. So in the future if you are off at the shrine you can attack someone who is in the fields. So actually moving around the world will be a part of the game.
Tchalvak
Have you tried using the “fight” page instead, though? I know it often looks chaotic, but that is the direction I am moving with combat, is doing it all from a single page, instead of going to the list. Part of the reason for that is because I want
Tchalvak
I will bump up the priority on that one, too, as it shouldn’t be too complex to fix.
Tchalvak
https://github.com/BitLucid/ninjawars/issues/871
Tchalvak
Yes, I agree, not having a turns counter is a big omission. That came with the layout change and has an outstanding bug here:
Bravos
the only way to refresh the page is to click on another page to refresh it
Bravos
if you don't get what I am saying... try to click backspace after you kill that ninja.. it will show that he is alive and you can attack him. Then you attack him and it says he is dead
Bravos
now the dead ninjas remain on the page so it is hard to kill fast.. if those things can be returned I would most likely try to level up and catch up. because I dont have patience to use a mouse and keep clicking the ninja page and refreshing the page
Bravos
in my opinion the first verison was the best... it had almost the exact say layout... but I could see my turns on a bar.. I dont care too much about seeing health. Also, I used to be able to hit backspace and land on ninja list and keep killing.
Bravos
btw when you are on a killing spree... to level up.. how can I check that I am not running out of turns and going to hit 0. I can't just keep clicking on ninja stats to keep checking
Bravos
he is too slow
Bravos
over_med can't catch up haha
Mr_Deadpool
or Over_Med you could level up an catch up ... ..
Over_Medicated
You should remove the cap as a lifetime a achievement award at this point
Over_Medicated
If im honest,dead is most the reason i still check in on the game
Over_Medicated
Dead put in all the work, why not let him wear that lvl like a badge
Over_Medicated
That's a shit excuse.
Tchalvak
Correct
Mr_Deadpool
excuse being as to why he hasn't removed the seal: no one is near your level/ competitor -_-
Over_Medicated
I keep checking in to see if tchal removed the cap and let deadpool hit lvl 532 or whatever the fuck hes got saved up lol
Mr_Deadpool
* <-;,...,;-> *

Sachiko mostly likely some back alley passed out witha bottle of grey goose in hand

Still waiting on sachiko, wint hold my breath
Over_Medicated
Oh shit, a legend sighting....
Mr_Deadpool
In a way I've felt like the kyuubi - waiting for someone to break the seal Tchalvak has placed ... im ready to reach 400+ lvl
Mr_Deadpool
I recall you used to lvl up quickly - well I've been waiting for someone to come close to the lvl im currently at .. what do you say **
Mr_Deadpool
if it isn't M4W .. been awhile since the last clan war hasn't it..
Meant4War
Hey deadpool
Tchalvak
Hey, just FYI, expect the site to move to HTTPS soon, have to transfer the site for some major updates that I'm looking into.
Legend
Thanks man seems like just us now, need some newbies to make it interesting again
Mr_Deadpool
sup Legend, long time no c - welcome back
Tchalvak
Level ups are automatic, yes.
Legend
Yo Deadpool what's up bro
Legend
Level ups are automatic?
Legend
Don't get alot of newcomers anymore I take it
Tchalvak
Ah, yeah, I’m working on a site refresh that’d be more phone and device friendly. But it’s slow going, only when I have time.
Legend
Yeah probably because I'm on my phone, no top menu or side menu
Tchalvak
I guess you must be seeing something different than this: https://imgur.com/a/BWXU049 ?
Legend
Where's the mail now or like my profile
Legend
Man i miss this game logged in to see if it's still active been a long time
Mr_Deadpool
** Happy 4th of July everyone ++
Mr_Deadpool
was looking forward: Thief: Metal Ages [best game of ALL time].
Mr_Deadpool
checke3d it out - unfortunately sad to report: Thief series is not compatible with Mac :(
Tchalvak
Summer steam game sales going on now, it’s expensive to be alive.
Mr_Deadpool
lol .. the phookk
Tchalvak
[Sale starts on 25+ games that I want] Me: Oh nooooo! Me getting out my wallet: Oh noooooooo Me spending all my money while buying games: o nuuu....
Tchalvak
Still kicking.
FeaR
been like 10-15 years since i played. nice.
FeaR
wow. this game is still around
Tchalvak
Did you have any problem trying to use it with your clan?
Bravos
thats pretty cool. I like it
Tchalvak
Testing the timing mechanism of chat.
Tchalvak
Uploading clan avatars now more modern and simplified, check them out on the clan management page.
Tchalvak
Yeah, been a long time since that got improved, needs more work still.
Mr_Deadpool
there were also changes made to the battle outcome page - not much different but it'll take some time getting used to ..
Mr_Deadpool
Fight functionality: automatic/direct access to the "Nearby Ninja.." list - I like it; would've been abit more useful back in the day when the site was abit more active in terms of clan wars ..
Mr_Deadpool
iz kewl - perhaps I should take your advice and title the clan accordingly to the current Ninja till I reach 17 and then cut it off there - but not so sure I'd ever reach that amount ;;O,o;;
Tchalvak
New Fight functionality deployed, try it out on the fight page.
Tchalvak
And I saw the clan name again.
Tchalvak
Was just working on clans while developing some new code (unrelated).
Tchalvak
Heh, as I said, I like it.
Mr_Deadpool
.. butt, ass ive stated before its not so much a descriptive title so much ass a favorite movie of mine .. am I not at liberty.
Mr_Deadpool
yes you've commented on this before - an it is abit interesting how it still fancies you ..
Tchalvak
I like how the 'Seventeen Ninja' clan has 5 members. :p
Bravos
thank you!
Tchalvak
Yeah, getting back to the list from the "they're dead" page would be good, I'll log an issue for that. Personally, I use the fight page more than the ninja list these days, since it kinda auto-refills.
Bravos
return to fight takes you back to fight page, but I want to go to ninja list. that is what I find frustrating honestly. is there a fast way to attack and rack up kills?
Bravos
tchalvak, another thing is when you click back arrow in browser the dead ninjas don't disappear from ninja list.
Bravos
i miss that feature were we could see how close we were to leveling up
Tchalvak
But the main game play area will of course have to be different than that homepage interface.
Tchalvak
You can view the new splash page/homepage draft at http://splash.ninjawars.net
Tchalvak
That is true. I'm actually working currently when I have time, on a refresh of the site in general, mobile friendliness will of course be part of that, I intend to generally make the changes mobile first.
Meant4War
Hello all. This site is not very mobile friendly
Bravos
i declare war on all ninjas :)
Tchalvak
On the ninjas list.
Tchalvak
"Lurking ninja" is a list of active joiners.
Tchalvak
Probably depends on the timeframe of "active".
Mekrotsidalb
how many active ninjas are there in 2019?
Mr_Deadpool
*<-;,..,;->*
Tchalvak
Ho
Mekrotsidalb
hi
Tchalvak
Wat
RyCkY
Br ai
RyCkY
iae
Tchalvak
I believe that will open up a lot of additional changes around that concept.
Tchalvak
That is why I'm working on making locations and npcs live on the map more, much like a standard rpg.
Tchalvak
This is because we don't have anywhere for a theif, for example, to live.
Tchalvak
They are readily replaced.
Tchalvak
Right now the system is somewhat limited, as you can see, because if you attack one theif, they don't necessarily die per se.
Tchalvak
Well, one of the things that I'm working on is having multiple npcs.
Tchalvak
Hmmm
kadenangrosas
ok
Blare
I like the setup with the theives that if you attack to many of them then you get a stronger one that pops up. I would expand that as well so that you could then get higher lvl items a chance to drop
Blare
you got neough NPC's setup for use you just need to tweak what they do their strength and what they have a chance to drop so that we can farm npc's and then look into adding in effects with killing ninja players after.
Blare
merchants drop base rings with negative effects tied to positive ones but say a samurai may have a higher level one that just adds positive effects
Blare
then set it up to have us be able to farm low level items for these slots through killing NPC's
Blare
give characters inventory slots for weapons to use, body armor to wear, helmets to put on, sheilds to use necklaces to add effects, rings to add stats
Blare
items that allow you to say do more dmg vs a samurai if equiped on the charactors inventory
Blare
players don't come here as much and due to that this needs a more single player setup - expand on what the characters can do with gear and added items to build stats like a nomral rpg
Blare
11 year old account - damn not even my first account. still say the main changes are added depth of the game
kadenangrosas

Owlet
i think nerfing the dim maks is a good idea :D
Tchalvak
Hahaha, it got autocorrected. I meant: "nerfed" as in nerfing the Dim Mak's power. Essentially I would want to make it not an auto-kill. It would still exist and be powerful, certainly it would still be the most powerful offensive item in the game
Mr_Deadpool
still*
Mr_Deadpool
... would it till be recognizable and any worth acquiring?\
Mr_Deadpool
by making it nerdy what is it exactly that you mean?
Tchalvak
So I would like to hear thoughts on the Dim Mak. Would you mind if I nerded it for game balance?
Tchalvak
How so? Because they do 100% damage. So what? Well, that means that when I increase my hitpoints, I level up, that doesn’t matter, you can still kill me with a single Dim Mak.
Tchalvak
Why? Because they are game breaking items.
Tchalvak
I brought Dim Maks into the game years ago, and I was effectively an idiot to do so.
Tchalvak
Let’s chat about Dim Maks
Tchalvak
Hai.
Tchalvak
: p
Tchalvak
I oughta put an expiration date.
Tchalvak
Jesus.
annihilate
I never did get around to using these 4600 dim maks...
Tchalvak
There are like 4/5 parts to put together for it, though.
Tchalvak
I'll announce the first one on the facebook page as well as here when I have it set up.
Over_Medicated
I’d be in for a special event, just say when
Tchalvak
I'll queue it up, really have to figure out what the "events" will entail, possibly new functionality required to make that work.
Mr_Deadpool
just a shot in the night: certainly wouldn't hurt - down for anything that can bring it all back to its glory day(s)
Tchalvak
Actually, how do you all feel about “Special Events” that count down to their start, so people can all be online at a certain time if they want to participate?
Tchalvak
I think one thing might be showing when players are frequently on, so others can sync up. We’re all like passing trains in the night otherwise.

Over_Medicated
My avatar is dead sexy. Don't be jealous of my ladies..
Tchalvak
Heh heh
Mr_Deadpool
counter: Yes/Si
Tchalvak
So horrible.
Tchalvak
Also, Over_Medicated, change that avatar, ugh.

Think I should put a counter on the player profiles for how "old" characters are?
Bravos
Thanks :)
Tchalvak
Gotta get a competitor.
Tchalvak
Mmmm
Mr_Deadpool
now if only Tch- would resurrect an take the cap off the ranking system i could finally go on to Level 400
Mr_Deadpool
tnx much, Over_Medicated O,+; I try to personify Greatness

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
Mr_Deadpool
futile really
Mr_Deadpool
after using all that weaponry on me - you should have saved your turns
Mr_Deadpool
You have killed Tchalvak .. curiosity killed the cat .. after all
Mr_Deadpool
you figure i'd have saved a few for reserves by now - a decade (OG)
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
i log in and have a 100 turns everyday - nothing more than that needed nowadays
Mr_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 ;)
Mr_Deadpool
run out of turns: of course not due to replenishing each an everyday
Mr_Deadpool
.. be a ..*
Mr_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
Mr_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
Mr_Deadpool
tnx

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)

Added it to the news, but there is now a healthbar at the top to more easily show your current health percent.
Mr_Deadpool
look out :)) (You have killed Tchalvak with Shuriken!)
Mr_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
Mr_Deadpool
sweet ;O,o;
Tchalvak
Working on an update to the homepage, don't be surprised when it looks totally different. :p
Mr_Deadpool
across all platforms/browsers ('cept Safari: don't use any further further)
Mr_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.
Mr_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.
Mr_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.
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
the game just seems to display differently on various platforms - not all that difficult to fix if time permitted, that is O.o
Mr_Deadpool
not really an impasse at all, Dark Lord
Tchalvak
An impasse.
Tchalvak
well damn
Mr_Deadpool
also shows*
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
P.p. reduces turns ... simple
Mr_Deadpool
Inventory> Shuriken: reduces turns (item description)
Mr_Deadpool
Inventory> Phosphor Powders: "burns fiercely" (item description)
Mr_Deadpool
awhole lot easier*
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
http://www.shadowville.com/124471/genres/rnb-beats/love-letter
Mr_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
Mr_Deadpool
turns are not replenishing - for 2 days now turn count is not increasing with time .. fix needed
Mr_Deadpool
it*
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
v @Tch-
Mr_Deadpool
even now with the temporary every 2 day resurrect they've still resurrected with over 5K+ health..
Mr_Deadpool
fix the problem with resurrects at 5K+ health ..
Tchalvak
Ho ho ho
Mr_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*
Mr_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?
Mr_Deadpool
a lot of the same information or links on the supposed different pages
Mr_Deadpool
this layout is very redundant
Mr_Deadpool
* burps * <-;,...,;-> just finished the list
Mr_Deadpool
v functions ::: "bugs" needing of corrective implementation (fixes)
Mr_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"
Mr_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
Mr_Deadpool
refresh the list
Tchalvak
Ah, yeah, I know that that is, I'll try to fix that up.
Mr_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 ..
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
*
Mr_Deadpool
attempted action on varous browsers: Dojo > white monk > change class function is not working .. other words, wont let player change class
Mr_Deadpool
also, explain "Ki" and its use or future use/role... NW 101 0,0
Mr_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...
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
tnx (thumbs up) **
Tchalvak
'tis done.
Mr_Deadpool
when you get a chance ..
Mr_Deadpool
refresh the list
Mr_Deadpool
it took 66 turns - but you return 65 turns and keep the 1 for the action - we can call it even.. ..
Mr_Deadpool
also, I need those turns back the bug cost me with Stealth attack action
Mr_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.
Mr_Deadpool
Shuriken: "Causes damage to a target. Damage: 1 to strength." <--- once again direct from the wiki -,-
Mr_Deadpool
v P.p.
Mr_Deadpool
not interchangeable: "Causes damage to a target. Stronger than shurikens. Damage: 30 + 1 to strength." <--- direct from the wiki
Mr_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?
Mr_Deadpool
*
Mr_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
Mr_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?
Mr_Deadpool
action: stealth attack - <> - "ninja" has entire turn count depleted upon performing this action < requires fix ..
Mr_Deadpool
[ /damage :: :: offensive alt> 50 gold < fire scroll\ end feed]
Mr_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

Mr_Deadpool
not anymore :) perhaps tnx to you, Tch **
Tchalvak
So there's that.

Deadpool, for example, has a 石5,000 bounty currently.
Tchalvak
The 石 (koku) is defined as a quantity of rice, historically defined as enough rice to feed one person for one year.
Tchalvak
The worst part about my computer slowing down is that when I open a new tab and type stuff, the lag allows me to misspell really badly, arg, detest that.

Re to the fresh.
Tchalvak
Manually refreshed.

again... lvl 1 ninjas with 5250 hp
Tchalvak
That is high on my priority list. The new job is just going to delay things after a very active spring/summer in terms of development.
Mr_Deadpool
well tnx .. thats a start now hopefully you can get enough time to fix the cost of attacking and dueling back to 1 turn and 2 turns, respectively.
Tchalvak
Reset healths.

Tchalvak
Hmmm.
Tchalvak
Refreshed.
Tchalvak
Blar, I'll fix this regen bug as soon as I can get time.
Tchalvak
In summary, brainstorming ideas and resurrecting old ideas is well & good, on facebook for brainstorming and github for stress-tested feature requests and bug reports.
Tchalvak
So I def want to move to facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/ninjawars.net/
Tchalvak
and create an account on the forum just in order to discuss a few brainstorm ideas.
Tchalvak
As for the forum, it's kinda dead, and I am of a mind to move towards using the facebook page as the new social discussion place, as it gets people more interested, connects with new and old players, whereas no-one especially wants to have to log in
Tchalvak
https://github.com/BitLucid/ninjawars/issues
Tchalvak
We definitely welcome players to join in the discussion there.
Tchalvak
Well, we're actively developing the game, it's just the conversation has more moved to github where the code is.
Blare
but who am I to say what should be done to your play ground
Blare
if the game cna't be fun without players on all the time create it so that its fun without players and have pvp stay as it is until the community comes back
Blare
say a raid system and a team system. have ninjas be able to joininto a group and then go through areas where you need groups of ninjas to defeat the bosses and design it so that each player has a tun to choose an ation with a count down then based on
Blare
The old forums are filled with ideas - one would be to make the NNPC more rewarding and put the PVP system on the back burner
Blare
why not revamp it and try to get a community back
Blare
question for you tch, i know this has always been a side project and programing takes time
Blare
lol to bad id like that black hole to revers polarity and expand back into the white hole we had
Tchalvak
On clear nights you can see them, rolling through.
Tchalvak
They bunched up too much, achieved critical mass, died, and became a black hole.
Blare
what ever happened to the masses
Blare
that use to play this game?
Blare
wow this place hasn't changed much
Tchalvak
Manually regenned players.
Tchalvak
***regen, that is.
Tchalvak
Damn, regents amounts got skewed again.
Tchalvak
I'm messing around with fixes for regen.
Tchalvak
That's right, I took down github with my commit speed, so it might be a little bit. :p
Tchalvak
Ya
Tchalvak
Slowly turning the time-based functionalities back on.
Tchalvak
Mmmhmmm, well, I'm working on the resurrection stuff.
Mekrotsidalb
it looks like a ghost town... am I playing Ninjawars or a zombie based one instead?
Tchalvak
Mmmmmore resurrectioning.
Tchalvak
manually resurrectioned.
Tchalvak
AAaaaaaaaaaand we're back.
Tchalvak
I am currently updating the server, so expect a little rockiness.
Tchalvak
Resurrectioned.
Tchalvak
I'm just going to be manually adding to turns from time to time while the revive/turn/etc addition system is buggy/not running.
Tchalvak
All active players, that is.
Tchalvak
Manually gave all players 300 turns.
Tchalvak
I'll log that as a bug and get it fixed.
Tchalvak
Hmmm, yeah.
Mekrotsidalb
now attack needs 2 turns, and dueling 3
Tchalvak
It's like a zombie show up in here, with inactive characters coming back to life, and mutants regenerating to weird fleshy levels.
Tchalvak
Notably, that also means that all "regen" is turned off.
Tchalvak
So that'll keep people from reaching redic. health levels until I can get it fixed.
Tchalvak
I turned off the "update" scripts for now, since they're being buggy.
Tchalvak
Healths updated.
Tchalvak

Tchalvak
A hm hm hm
Tchalvak
Stealth isn't that good of a thang.
Tchalvak
Probably add other defenses.
annihilate
As it stands, Tchalvak, Stealth isn't at all powerful - I think if you wanted appropriate defense, it needs to be powered up. If that is your desire, anyhow.
annihilate
Then the changes won't matter. As long as the clever players can adapt, they'll always be on top.
annihilate
As for you and dead being better than everyone else no matter what - I don't understand why there is a "then what?". If your boasts are accurate, then doesn't that just mean you are cleverer, or more skilled? It's bound to happen regardless.
annihilate
Evil ways? Autoing? I was always upfront about when I did it, and it wasn't often at all. The funny thing is, Tchalvak implemented effective safeguards against it, and despite that, I was still using you all as my toilet paper. :)
Tchalvak
I mean, account info stuff, changing of passwords, email, account deletion.
Tchalvak
Fixed account problems.
Tchalvak
Not sure that it'll have the intended effect, though.
Tchalvak
I mean, I could turn down the resurrect rate right now.
Tchalvak
It's actually only a co-incidence that you and I are on at the same time.
Tchalvak
...until I help make it so that players are on & playing at the same time, you know?
Tchalvak
That's the thing though. Fixing the times when multiple players are on at once and are attacking each-other isn't really a problem...
Over_Medicated
make it turn based like an rpg - one clan member can attack one different clan member only - then cant attack again till every one else goes? thatll even it up....
Over_Medicated
you know i love this game - would be here a decade in if i didnt - and like i said - whatever you do ill play, and ill figure out a way to get better at whatever you set up - and me and dead will still be better than every one else - then what??
Tchalvak
Plan is to work on a facelift for the site in April, then combat all month in June. Etc.
Tchalvak
That is the current development gameplan, by the way.
Tchalvak
https://github.com/BitLucid/ninjawars/milestones
Tchalvak
Probably one solution is having attacks never be free any more. E.g. If I attack you with a shuriken, you should attack back in a duel, I shouldn't just get a free shuriken off.
Tchalvak
But defense against a group is probably always going to be very difficult. The only true way to do it is stay dead strategically, since that and "stealth" are the only true defenses around.
Tchalvak
I mean, there may be problems to solve when that happens, lots of problems since the game has no real concept of defense
Tchalvak
But when was the last time you were actually attacked by multiple people at once at all?

I mean, possibly a part of the whole problem is that to level one must kill other ninja, there is no other way to gain xp. So if you come on and attack other ninja and someone else is too, you immediately compete for resources.

- get the four per second - but what happens at 2 per quarter or three in less than half - still stops me - then you die
Over_Medicated
3 will die - seven would tell me no

i could kill an entire page of the list before jokers auto got me - i could nuke him with a dim and get back down before he got me too - then the speed limiter camme - if i tried to kill ten people as fast as i could...
Tchalvak
But I kinda doubt this is related to the problem. There are symptoms and then there are underlying causes.

I'm on mobile, so it doesn't exactly count, but it took me like 20 seconds to type out this chat. That's (at 3 per second) still 60 attacks that I could have received in this time.
Over_Medicated
and that was ok too - because it forced us to find away to get faster - and we did
Over_Medicated
when there was no limit to attack speed we forced people to find ways to cheat

2000 attacks in ten minutes is cool - unless your fighting a clan like vory where you better be able to hit four guyr in a second if you want to stay alive passed that second
Over_Medicated
the only way to beat a higher level is to be better aka faster - muscle memory reflex and technique - whats the point in leveling the power and hp if the fact that im faster than you isnt allowed
Over_Medicated
i guarantee i can fire off more than four attacks without an auto - i thought that was part of the "skill" difference you eluded too - if the fact that im faster than you makes the game unfair - then get faster - dont take away my ability to fight
Over_Medicated
and seriously if i go to attacks in a row to quickly it has always shut down on number three - and by the time you reload past that screen - your dead
Over_Medicated
right i feel you - but not to be a dick - when is the last time you tried to go at a guy like dead on the list?
Tchalvak
I suspect the problem lies more with timing. As in: at one point, resurrects would happen at a certain time (half-hour or hour) so everyone would get on at that time and interact.
Tchalvak
But this is a good discussion, I just don't think it's exactly the -right- one.
Tchalvak
Doing the math, that is about 200 attacks per minute that are still possible, 2,000 per ten minutes.
Tchalvak
I suspect you just get annoyed from seeing the message, it's not actually a practical limitation. After all, the speed limiter kicks in at MORE THAN 4 ATTACKS PER SECOND.
Owlet
see that's why ninjawars was so fun back then lol xD
Over_Medicated
lol
Over_Medicated
really though - i dont care what you do - just do it quick i tired of not having any one to kill
Over_Medicated
take away the speed limit and it will even itself out
Over_Medicated
thats what made the playing feild so damned lopsided - it wasnt the hp or the power or even the jitsu - it was the fact that you cant kill people fast enough to stop from getting smoked if you werent strong enough - take away the speed limit and it w
Over_Medicated
lol - no*
Over_Medicated
the problem was anni teaching every one his evil ways - then the speed limiter showed up - which kills the ability to take out higher levels with multiple attacks - or to clear the pages like we used to - every other attack would tell you know
Over_Medicated
you can put every one at zero - give every one the same stats - and do whatever else you can to lvl the feild - me and dead will still kill every one and jump to the top - its a skill thing - the hp and power are just perks
Over_Medicated
maybe put a level cap - where you cant step to the big boys until lvl 20 or so? or 50 or whatever
Over_Medicated
i dont think the levels or hit points are the problem - not once you know how to play
Over_Medicated
my bad meant - didnt mean to leave you out of my rant lol
Owlet
