Re: MajorMUD DLL edits

I certainly can't take credit for most of the edits in the dll. I know I've done a bunch, but I don't even remember which ones at this point. All of my notes and everything are mia as well. The crack file for the dll lists the following edits: -fixes sys list newlimited crash from previous crack -su...

Re: MajorMUD DLL edits

People generally don't "do" these type of edits. Everyone just uses the DLL that I and others have patched over the years that already contains all of them. All of the edits are functionality fixes, bug prevention, or removal of limits.

Re: ?$!4%V

Those characters are more of a problem then just getting rid of them with the tool I wrote in NMR to strip them out. There are a decent number of text blocks that are full on their character limit. And there are at a least a few of them that contain commands. On those blocks, the last few characters...

Re: Non SGA connections and general hack nonsense

As I was reading my post again it occurred to me that an IP could get added to the block list multiple times if it was found in the audit log multiple times on the same run. I added a line to prevent that from happening (script re-uploaded in original post).

Re: Non SGA connections and general hack nonsense

Here you go. You can either place the files in your wgserv folder or, if your wgserv is c:\wgserv, you can place them anywhere. Alternatively, you can place them anywhere and modify the following lines: sAudit = "PATH TO wgsaudit.adt" sBlock = "PATH TO blocklist.txt" non-sga-chec...

Re: Non SGA connections and general hack nonsense

If you want me to write a script for you I need actual files. A sample audit trail file and sample (working) IP blocking file. When scraping text in files everything matters. Line feeds, character spacing, etc. I can't go by a few redacted lines pasted to a forum. PM me if you're paranoid about pub...

Re: Active Monster Buffer Setting (?)

So your saying 11 times is not faster? Yes it's not as far as a jump processor's have had, but memory hasn't made huge leaps either. And not sure about you but the avg guy in 92 could not afford a 7200 drive, the prices for one of those was fucking crazy. Hell I remember dropping $300 for a 1.7 gig...

Re: Active Monster Buffer Setting (?)

Just for the record, SSD's aside, hard drive speed hasn't changed much in like 20 years. I would disagree here, the bus speeds are a lot faster then they used to be. 20 year's ago we had ata 66 5200 rpm drives with no cache or small amounts of cache on IDE. Now we have 15k rpm with 64m cache on sat...
