• LORD 2 JS Bug

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to ALL on Sunday, June 19, 2022 16:14:00
    A user reported the following issue with the javascript version of LORD 2.
    I have not played it enough to know exactly what it means but thought that others might.

    This message was from CYBERPOPE to DUMAS WALKER,
    originally in conference E-mail
    and was forwarded to you by DUMAS WALKER.

    RE: Feedback

    Hi, Mike!

    The LORD2 you're running isa buggy version -- it doesn't allow one to useweaspons or armor, so it's you to play the game as intended.

    okay he's correct. i got the 5 bucks from mom to buy milk and i used it on a rusty dagger instead. i choose arm as weapon and it does not do it.

    just use the real lord2

    just use the real lord2

    I mean, you could also describe in detail what the issue is and ask echicken if he can fix it. He fixed a bug I reported on Lord.

    I was not able to describe it because I am not as familiar with the game,
    but mro did describe it. Apparently, it will let you buy a weapon but then won't let you arm yourself with it.

    Did you report it here, or...?

    Thanks!

    okay he's correct. i got the 5 bucks from mom to buy milk and i used it on a rusty dagger instead. i choose arm as weapon and it does not do it.

    This appears to be correct based on the default lord2 configuration:

    LORD II ITEM EDITOR Editing item (3 of 99)
    (A) Name of the item : Milk
    (B) Action string :
    (C) Used as armour? : No
    (D) Used as weapon? : No
    (E) Can be sold? : No
    (F) Ref. If "Usable"? : item3
    (G) Use string : Guzzle the cow juice
    (H) Gold value : 1
    (I) Used only once? : Yes
    (J) Breaks 1 out of : Never breaks.
    (K) Description : A large jug, still fresh.
    (L) Weapon Strength : 0
    (M) Armour Defence : 0
    (N) Quest item? : No
    (*) Show all items.
    ([) Go back an account
    (]) Go forward an account
    (Q) Quit

    just use the real lord2

    I run both. This behavior seems consistent between them.

    And you were referring to the rusty dagger, that appears to be armable:

    LORD II ITEM EDITOR Editing item (4 of 99)
    (A) Name of the item : Dagger
    (B) Action string : You slash with your dagger
    (C) Used as armour? : No
    (D) Used as weapon? : Yes

    Pretty sure I've armed/used the dagger too.

    why are you showing the milk item?
    what i did was sell the milk and buy the rusty dagger.
    i can't equip the dagger.
    it's in my inventory but it won't equip.

    Is this the same weapon you're saying can't be armed?

    Maybe the sysop needs to run 'jsexec l2cfg.js' and double-check that the weapon is usable as a weapon.

    i sold the milk and bought the rusty dagger at the pawnshop on his bbs.
    then i opened inventory and chose to equip it and it looked like it did, but then looked again and it's not equipt.

    that's the quickest thing i could get to check his issue out.

    Maybe I need to upgrade my lord2.js? It is dated 4/6/2020.

    If I only want to upgrade the xtrn/lord and xtrn/lord2 directories from
    git, how do I do that?

    Thanks!

    You can download the individual files from gitlab.synchro.net, e.g. https://gitlab.synchro.net/main/sbbs/-/tree/master/xtrn/lord

    Or you can download a nightly archive and just extract the files/directories you want from it:
