Battle Support / Monster Dialog
May 07, 2022, 10:33:07 AM
A nice addition would be a line of DIALOG  for each monster.  It could be something as mundane as "ARRrrrrgh!" or full sentences for the more intelligent monsters. A line of potential dialog would be of benefit IMHO (not required of course).

Another thing I'd like to see is a DESCRIPTION field... so we can describe the monster they are confronting.

BTW... are you interested in these suggestions?  Is this mod actively in development at this point?   I'd be interested in working with you to flesh it out if you have any interest.  Of course I bring very little to the table being an ideas guy and graphics/code hack.  :D

This mod ... with a little work ... could really be expanded.  I can see basic things that would add enjoyment to this game... things like two different types of attack (Short and Long Range) for example.  Different character classes (each attack could be named differently based on the character... fighter characters fight with a sword and bow (for example) while wizard characters fight with a staff and spells.  Each could have different stats for long/short range, etc.  Same could be done with some monsters... long and short range attacks (leave it open to those adding the monsters... so some may have only long... or short,  etc).

Battle Support / Re: Win / Lose Image

WAIT!  How hard would it be to dish up the image of the monster... then add a 2nd image on top.  So you could have the image of the monster then with a win add a big green check-mark (or something)... with a lose add a big red X.  That would actually be a much better solution than a single image... and it would keep peoples attention on which monster is being attacked, etc...


Battle Support / Win / Lose Image

Hi guys...

Just one man's opinion,  but from my perspective,  the WIN/LOSE image needs a serious upgrading.  The current one reminds me of that terrible sitcom "Dinosaurs"...

It should not include an image of any monster (as it's then confusing)...

IDEALLY each monster should have a WIN/LOSE image (so 3 images per monster) but I am guessing that would be too difficult from an art perspective... but short of that,  a WIN/LOSE with just a nice text image would be more appropriate vs any particular monster being in it.

Again... just one man's opinion.


Battle Support / Pre-Configuration?
April 26, 2022, 10:19:49 AM
This mod intrigues me for sure.  Being an ex-Dungeon Master I feel the pull to configure this game up and down but frankly,  I am not sure if my small user-base is going to play much.  What I wish was available was a pre-configuration of the game ... with a reasonable number of monsters ... quests ... interactions available to drop on-site to see if it intrigues the userbase enough to warrant putting the time this thing really seems to call for a proper configuration.

Call me lazy... it really would be hard to argue.


I used Simple Portal with my 2.0.x site and after testing the other portals for 2.1.x I am now looking at EH Portal and liking it as it's comfortable.  I know it.

Unfortunately,  on my test site with minimal mods installed I am getting an error with the stock Curve2 theme...

I amusing version 1.34 BTW...

See photos of the time ... I am sure it's a very minor edit...

It also affects other themes that use the same format for that bar... example:

This is the error I am getting in the console when I run a HTML5 game downloaded from a gamepack here in it's own window...

Now,  looking at it,  I went in and noticed that my setting for URL TO GAMES setting in the Arcade Admin section had HTTP:// versus HTTPS:// ...

A switch to HTTPS:// and... HTML5 games are working!!

Woo hoo!

New SMF 2.1.1 install with only 12 mods running (mostly with hooks)...

New browser (of course).

Flash games work great (95% of them anyway).

HTML 5 games... just a blank screen.

I've downloaded the HTML 5 pack here thinking maybe I had the wrong ones.... same result.

I am at a loss.

I'll check the developer console.  Thanks.
Oddly... I can play flash games without issue,  but I can not play any H5 games.  Is there something I need to do to configure my system to play H5 games?
SMF Arcade Support + Plugins / Arena?
February 23, 2022, 04:49:16 PM

There is a featured advertised ...

"Arena for users to challenge other users"

... can someone tell me how this works?  I can't seem to find any way to challenge other users?  I am sure I am missing something.

Battle Support / Running BATTLE Sites?
February 23, 2022, 04:45:07 PM
Can someone post any sites currently running BATTLE on SMF 2.1.x?

I would really like to see the gameplay.

Thank you!
