PostSubject: compiling client   compiling client 999101/5/2021, 7:34 pm

hi. i am completely new to this so please bear with me. i have followed all of the steps in the 'how to configure a helbreath server' post but i have no idea how to creat a client. i have the client folder which was part of the zipped helbreath community master download but i have no idea how to make the client. I have searched a lot on the discussions etc but cant seem to find much about it. or perhaps there is a lot on it but i dont speak spanish Razz

i just want to creat a server to play locally by myself and to mess around when i have a bit of free time.  any help will be greatly appreciated.

thanks, custardboii <3

the site seems to have a lot less posts on than i remember from last time i looked into doing this. the guide is good but i think it leave a lot out from what a completely new person would need to know Sad

i have changed the afxres.h in vs2019 to windows.h and game.exe has compiled. i had the error that search.dii was missing and have downloaded that and put it into the client folder and the release folder. now when i try to run the client i get the error 'file checksum error. get update again please!'

EDIT
i have downloaded helbreath usa and used the search.dii file from there. my game.exe now opens but i cant connect. i guess this is where i need to change the ip in the client?
i read something about changing client ip but cant seem to find it now :/

all map data appears to have loaded correctly. the mobs and my character are visible but everything else is black. could it be a resolution issue?

also if i try to log in with the GM account i cant log in and i get this in the gameserver window now.
Player (gm) tries to enter map: default
(HACK?) character (gm) checksum error!

i can log in using the other accounts that are alreeady in the files but i cant create a gm char. changing the admin user level from 0 to 5 in the character .txt file doesnt seem to do anything.

screen i still all black apart from character and mobs.

i cant find the ascII.txt file so i cant create a new account.

also from what i read i need to hex the client to change xp rate/max level/drop rate etc. is this the same with these files?   its hard to try and piece together which works for which files

the client account creator works but now whenever i try to log in i get disconnected straight away even though all servers are running lol. when i relog into the account, the characters arent there. i cant make a new char in that slot so the char is still there but i just cant see it or log it in. 

my client is version 1.2, could this part of the issue? well, i think it is. it has 1.2 in the bottom left corner when it is open

**I don't think I've done this bit?** but then how would I have got into the game already? 


Open your client login, and configure the IP Address as follows
Code:
[CONFIG]
log-server-address = 190.137.94.24 (Local IP address for you, and External IP address to allow other people to log in.) 
log-server-port = 2848
game-server-mode = INTERNET

// LAN: forces router compatibility, but no more multi-host possible.

// INTERNET: standard mode.

// IP & port here overide IP/Ports coded in client.

Thank you for reading this content. If you have any questions feel free to make a new post.

There are no source here that is bug free. As no one will ever release their files that they have decode or debug, as this takes time and knowledge to fix.

As numerous people who have little knowledge of coding, furthermore in old HB codings, copy and paste snippets of codes which they have no understanding of the codes they copy and pasted. So there is no way anyone would know what the other coders have done wrong or right in that sense.

Good luck.

I'll just leave it there then I guess. To someone new to this site it would appear that the idea of it is to get new people into upping their own server in an easy and straight forward way. This is quite misleading as the only things that help towards this are countless broken files. It may aswell just be a link to the broken files in the Google drive and nothing else. Sad really as there are so many people that want to try and learn it but are stopped very early on. I guess this is why helbreath is in such a shit state with only one active server.

I totally agree with you. Helbreath players are toxic as ever.

I used to have a clean 2.24d source posted here, which is simple to up and compile, and play for those who wish to play locally or learn how HB Codings works. But i removed it already when my help is not appreciated.

You can PM me if you want it. I will send to you personally. I dont mind helping for those who have an intention to learn, rather than just copy and paste. 

Good luck.

thatd be great. i have no intention of trying to put a server up or anything. i want to host locally for myself so that i can try and learn how it works. as you can see from my posts so far i 100% do not have the skills to host a public server anyway Razz

although i had managed to work out the very basics to get things mostly working, i still have a lot to learn. i feel like if i have files to actually get me into the game id be able to learn a bit better by changing things and being able to see their effects which i think would help me get to know it better than being stuck trying to just log in.

its a shame that the community has ended this way as this is by far the best game i have played and there is nothing else that comes close to it. it would be nice to see it a lot more active Smile
