  1. Hey, Lordcraft Users! I'd like to welcome you to the first of a series of Java tutorials hand written by yours truly. They are going to be a Lordcraft exclusive and hopefully, everyone will find them useful. Going through these tutorials, I'll be assuming each and every one of you is brand new to both programming and Java. If you are already well versed in either of these subjects, feel free to wait around for the next bit of tutorials. ------- *** ------- Chapter I: Preparing Your System In order to get started with Java programming, you need a few tools installed on your system. Depending on your operating system, you may install things a little bit different then I am. I am using a Windows based laptop, so I'll be showing how a Windows user will setup their system. However, if you use a Mac or run Linux, comment below and I'll help you install everything. Programs: JDK - JDK 8 and JDK 9 IDE - NetBeans or IntelliJ or Eclipse I listed five programs above that you guys may be interested in. Right now, you probably have no idea what a JDK or IDE is, and that's okay. We'll go over that. For now, I recommend you download JDK 8 and Netbeans. I'll be using Netbeans in all of my tutorials since my university requires my program of study to use it for the Java language. Plus, it's super easy to use. Installing the JDK Step 1: Go to the downloads page and download JDK 8u152. (Don't forget to accept the License Agreement and pick the correct download for your system)! Step 2: Run the downloaded JDK application. Depending on your operating system, the way you'll do this may vary. Windows users will run the .exe file, Linux kernals will run it from the console (most distributions will run the tar.gz version), and Mac users will run the .dmg file. Links: Windows or Linux or Mac Step 3: Run through the installer, it's pretty easy. Just pressing "next" will be enough. Step 4: Congratulations! You've installed the required JDK application! Installing the IDE Step 1: Go to the downloads page and download Java SE Step 2: Run the Netbeans installer, depending on your operating system, the installed product will be different. You'll run it the same way you ran your JDK installer. Step 3: Accept the licensing agreement, pick your installation path, and check for updates (this will save you time later on). After that, let the installer do it's job. Step 4: Congratulations! You installed the required IDE! Now we can start programming... Almost. ------- *** ------- Chapter II: What Is a JDK and IDE? So now you're probably wondering what a JDK and IDE and why we need them. In short, a JDK (Java development kit) is a subset of a SDK (software development kit). The JDK offers a variety of tools for developing, debugging, and monitoring java applications. Essentially, it's the core behind the Java language. Without a JDK, you can't have your Java code. But what about an IDE? If the JDK gives us the ability to develop Java code, why do we need this? Well, an IDE (integrated development environment) is a program that allows you to easily make project files, test your source code, read error text, catch errors in code before runtime, and hosts a debugger. Not only that, but an IDE offers a quick and responsive function that builds your sourcecode into computer-readable binary, which then turns into an executable code. There's a lot more information about both the JDK and IDE, but all you really need to know is that a Java IDE requires an updated JDK in order to properly integrate Java code into programs. ------- *** ------- If you have any questions, leave a comment or contact me on Discord!
  2. Hello, In this tutorial I just wanna paste a very simple script for Rock, Paper, Scissors var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?"); var computerChoice = Math.random(); if (computerChoice < 0.34) { computerChoice = "rock"; } else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) { computerChoice = "paper"; } else { computerChoice = "scissors"; } console.log(computerChoice); var compare = function(choice1, choice2) { if (choice1 === choice2) { return "The result is a tie!"; } else if (choice1 === "rock") { if (choice2 === "scissors") { return "rock wins"; } else { return "paper wins"; } } else if (choice1 === "paper") { if (choice2 === "rock") { return "paper wins"; } else { return "scissors wins"; } } else if (choice1 === "scissors") { if (choice2 === "rock") { return "rock wins"; } else { return "scissors wins"; } } }; compare(userChoice, computerChoice); Any questions? you can put them in the reply I will try to answer on it
  3. Hello everyone, ​This tutorial is only for Invision Power Board 4.x! Today I would like to share this tutorial about how to get a Twitch block on your Invision Power Board 4.x forum! Let's start: You will need to create PHP block under Pages and use the following code: function is_channel_live($channel) { $request = json_decode( @[member='fileposter']_get_contents( 'https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams/' . $channel ) ); return ( ! is_null( $request->stream ) ) ? TRUE : FALSE; } $chan = "twitch"; if (is_channel_live($chan)==true) echo " <h3 class='ipsType_reset ipsWidget_title'>Live Stream (Online)</h3> <div class='embed-container'> <iframe src='http://www.twitch.tv/' . $chan . '/embed' frameborder='0'></iframe> </div>"; else echo " <h3 class='ipsType_reset ipsWidget_title'>Live Stream (Offline)</h3> <div class='embed-container'> <font color=red><b>Offline</b></font> </div>"; Not much of an tutorial, I know but it's not very hard to this. I hope it's working for you guys! Kind regards, Unrecognized.
  4. Well you have maybe seen some of my show offs on website sections , well somebody asked for a tutorial so here it is: First let's create 2 divs 1 for parent and one for tooltip <div class='parent'>Some text here <div class='tooltip'>box to show on hover</div> </div> Well that was an easy one now let's give a style to parent class .parent { font-size:14px; cursor: pointer; max-width: 400px; } Next step we are going to give a style to our tooltip and set its appearence to none, position relative and no float so your object won't interact with the other objects set the margin as you wish .tooltip{ color: #fff; display: none; position: relative; margin-left: 100px; margin-top: -60px; background-color:rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7); border: 2px #202020 solid; padding: 5px 5px 5px 5px; border-radius: 5px; width:310px; box-shadow: #000 0 0 10px 5px; z-index:100; } Ok now we have our divs prepared let's get to our hover effect, we are going to call the tooltip and change it's display to block .parent:hover .tooltip{ display: block; } Well that's the whole story here now it's your turn to experimentate Sorry for bad lang and such , i've made this tutorial in 4 minutes .
  5. Setup Eclipse & SVN Well, in this tutorial I will explain how to setup Eclipse to work with aCis project. As you perhaps know, the project is located online on a Assembla server. You, as owner, have to take a copy of the project on your computer in order to work on it and make it custom. Some vocabulary before : - IDE* : Integrated Development Environment. Basically, your working environnement. - Subversion : A software used to version a project, allowing to make revision. Eclipse uses his own Subversion plugin, named Subclipse. - Checkout : the act to download sources (at last revision if possible...) from the online repository. *Some others IDEs are existing, but this tutorial will only cover Eclipse setup. 1. Download and extract Eclipse ! First of all, you must download Eclipse software on its website. Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers or Eclipse IDE for Java Developers are both good choices. The archive have to be directly extracted, generally on the root of your drive (C:/, D:/) 2. First launch of Eclipse At first launch, Eclipse will ask you where your workspace will be located. Try to use a safe partition or another drive, like that all your work will be secured. 3. Installation of Subclipse Now you must install the plugin named subclipse in order to checkout the project : in the main bar, select Help->Install New Software. From the new window that will popup, press Add site... and write the following link: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.10.x Eclipse will ask you if you agree about the plugin rules, accept, click on Install and in the end click on the Finish button. 4. Call the SVN Repositories window Eclipse will perhaps ask to reload, accept and wait. We have to call a window, which will be used to checkout project, and which comes with the installation of Subclispe. Click at the bar Window->Show View->Other... In the new window, select the little SVN folder type, then select SVN Repositories and click OK. 5. Write the SVN URL in the SVN Repositories window On the new tab, click at SVN Repositories, then right click anywhere inside and go to New->Repository Location.... Using the following url : http://xp-dev.com/svn/aCis_public/ you will link yourself to the project. Click Finish. 6. Checkout ! Last but not least, you must check out datapack and gameserver with the same way. Select the new location, right click on the SVN link, select Checkout... and click in the new window Finish. Wait Eclipse download the whole project in order to work on it, depending of your connection it can be 2-10 minutes. 7. Configure compiler path. Your eclipse will try to search the compiler in the wrong direction if you had an old version of JRE installed. You have to change this direction, following those simple instructions : - Window > Preferences. A window will popup. - Java tab > Installed JREs. Push "Search..." and give yourself the good path. It mustn't be JRE, but jdk. Compilation of aCis project using Eclipse In this short tutorial, I will explain how to compile aCis project using Eclipse. Before starting compiling, you must setup eclipse & svn. 1. Checkout any revision & create java's path ! As you have clicked to datapack (or gameserver) checkout button, a window poped up. You can checkout any version writing an existing revision number instead the xx on my screen. If you check Check out HEAD Revision, it will automatically checkout the last revision. Others options will be grey. Then, simply click on Finish. 2. Compile aCis project! When projects' checkouts (gameserver/datapack) are over, you will have a local copy of aCis' files. Congratulations, you are ready to compile them. On the image, we have only checkouted datapack sources. This is an exemple, normally you should have 2 distinct projects. You need to compile each project. Click on the little + icon from datapack (once again, it could be gameserver, datapack is taken as exemple). Right click at build.xml Choose Run as -> 1 Ant Build The compilation should normally begin. It will take some seconds / minutes depending of your own computer performances. At the end of any compilation you should have Buildfile: C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build.xml init: [mkdir] Created dir: C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist [mkdir] Created dir: C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\gameserver [mkdir] Created dir: C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\login version: [echo] aCis datapack revision: 170 export: [sync] Copying 3949 files to C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\gameserver\data [sync] Copying 84 files to C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\sql [sync] Copying 4 files to C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\tools [sync] Copying 1 file to C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build\dist\login dist: BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 46 seconds From the moment you got BUILD SUCCESFULL, it means compilation succeeded. You have to do same actions for gameserver project. 3. Find compiled files on your drive ! The path fully depends of where you put your workspace. Don't take those informations at first degree. As my workspace is setup in C:/, let's go at C:\workspace\aCis_datapack\build to see what new files / folders have been created from compilation. For gameserver project, the location is C:\workspace\aCis_gameserver\build\dist. As you have build/compile datapack & gameserver, you should have also create a folder with name(for ex.)MyServer at C: and copy paste the folders inside there. So now at MyServer folder you should have folders: gameserver, login, sql, tools. Installing aCis INTRODUCTION Well, don't laugh, but some people asked for it. You have to know this tutorial is useful at any case, from L2J IL to Freya, using my pack or not. Important things : In this tutorial, some things aren't essential (shortcuts, etc), but they're presented to make your life easier & reduce the installation / upgrade time. We use 2 different locations : the sources location, which got compiled version and sources, and the server installation location, which got your server files organized. It's IMPORTANT TO DON'T USE SAME PLACE FOR BOTH USES. Using your build location as server installation will result in a big mess. You're warned. So be clever and simply create a new folder. I personally use a folder Sources and another named Servers. My windows is in French, just use common sense in order to find good paths... So, you compiled both gameserver and datapack. How to install the crap then ? DATAPACK INSTALLATION Okay, as you have all necessary files in one folder, now you can configure them and install. You have to create your database first in navicat / phpMyAdmin. Continuing this tutorial without doing it will result in a fail at database installation. We will first install the database, so go on tools folder, right click on database_installer.bat and click on Modify option. You have to edit this square with your own informations. REM ############################################ REM ## You can change here your own DB params ## REM ############################################ REM MYSQL BIN PATH set mysqlBinPath=C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin REM LOGINSERVER set lsuser=root set lspass=KEEP_EMPTY_IF_NO_PASSWORD set lsdb=acis set lshost=localhost REM GAMESERVER set gsuser=root set gspass=KEEP_EMPTY_IF_NO_PASSWORD set gsdb=acis set gshost=localhost REM ############################################ Don't forget to save modifications, then run database_installer.bat double clicking on it. For a full install, just type f and type y anew to confirm you want to delete all characters table. Wait it install tables, than verify (who knowns, you are perhaps the unlucky type) if the database is installed. After you verified database is populated, move from tools folder to login. Open config folder, then edit loginserver.properties #============================================================= # Database informations #============================================================= URL = jdbc:mysql://localhost/acis #URL = jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost/acis #URL = jdbc:sqlserver://localhost/database=acis/user=sa/password= Login = root Password = KEEP_EMPTY_IF_NO_PASSWORD The same you have to do with gameserver.properties located inside gameserver/config folder. As you have set correct database path, now you can register your gameserver / create hexid file. Go to login folder and run RegisterGameServer.bat When the window pops up, type 1 and press enter. If you (previously) correctly configured the db path, the result should be following Now, select the hexid(server 1) and rename it to hexid. Cut the file and paste it inside gameserver/config folder. And that's it, you have successfully configured your server files. Now you can launch the server (startLoginServer.bat and startGameServer.bat). Updating server If you made java developement like adding customs etc, you have to use Team Synchronize from Eclipse to keep your customs but refresh code. If you "only" talk of updating your server from revision xxx to revision xxx+1, you have first to checkout/synchronize latest version, then compile, then : - in near 90% of case, pick the l2jserver.jar and copy/paste it in the libs folder of your server. It is needed if there was core additions. In some very rare cases, you will have to update the loginserver l2jserver lib too, but in 95% of time it's not needed. - add DP (can be HTMs added, drop/update of a SQL table for another with better content, and such). Use the timeline to see what files have been changed, it's useful for DP. - configs file are rarely updated, but sometimes they are. Like the addition of floodProtector. You can keep old configs in server.properties or delete them at hand, but you have to add the new .properties in order you want to change values. By default it will use values written in core so even if you forget the file, that works, but you can't configure it. Tutorial Created by aCis team and Tryskell (Owner of aCis Project).

  8. Hello members of LordCraft, In this tutorial you will learn how to bake light maps for Lineage 2 client. Video: Download Video: Final Result: p.s. you can use this method for interior/exterior lighting. If you dont know how to setup v-ray, just use standart 3ds max scanline renderer. Credits: deMEV
  9. Hello members of LordCraft, here is a tutorial on how to add custom items to your Interlude server! NOTE: The way to add custom items to your server is the same for all clients the only difference is the file editor version. You can find File Editors here. Let's start. 1. Download your items you want to add. (For example let's say Dynasty Armors) 2. Inside your custom items folder you downloaded you will find Client Side and Server Side files. 3. First open Client Side (or if you don't find Client Side and Server Side folders open the system folder). You will find inside armorgrp and itemname-e txt files. 4. Open File Editor, Click Open and go to your C:/Lineage II/System folder (or where you've installed Lineage 2 or you have your server patch placed). 5. Now open armorgrp.dat file and armorgrp txt from your downloaded files. 6. Now copy the lines from armorgrp txt file and go to the last line @ your File Editor and paste them 7. Now click Save and encrypt, click on 413 Version and Ok. 8. Now open itemname-e.dat on your File Editor and itemname-e txt on your downloaded files and follow the same steps with armorgrp. 9. Now copy and paste the folders Systextures and Animations to your Server Patch or inside your Lineage II Folder. 10. Now open Server Side Folder you will find 2 folders inside SQL and Armor (or Server/data/stats/armor) 11. Now copy the .xml file inside armor folder and go to your Server files (Gameserver/data/stats/armor) and paste your .xml file inside. 12. Now open Navicat go to your database, right click and select Execute SQL File option, go to your downloaded files (Server Side/SQL folder) and select the SQL file and click Start, when execute finish click Close and you're ready! And now you successfully added your custom items to your server. Credits for the Guide: TehNeRD (Me )
  10. What is this about ? Introduction You don’t need advanced knowledge to create a working server. In fact, you can even be a complete incompetent and still make a server. I’m going to explain few things everybody knows in the emulation scene. To get an idea of what it is about, here is the table of content : Section 1: Emulators 1.1: How to use it ? Is it free ? 1.2: Database 1.3: Tell me more about emulators 1.3.1: Why are there almost only WOTLK and Vanilla private servers ? 1.3.2: Why so many new WOD-based servers ? 1.3.3: This server is not using TrinityCore but Badass-Name-Core, what is it ? 1.4: Why are some servers so bad ? 1.5: What can I do with a freshly compiled server ? 1.5.1: You can already put it online 1.5.2: Or customise it Section 2: Repacks Section 3: Eluna - SmartAI - and others Section 4: Patches Section 5: Hosting a server publicly 5.1: Dedicated servers (or VPS) 5.1.1: What to choose ? 5.1.2: Then they can come and play ? 5.2: Website 5.2.1: How to make one ? 5.2.2: No programming skills : CMS examples : : But they all look like any private server website ! 5.2.3: A domain name Section 6: Server staff 6.1: Owner 6.2: Core developers 6.3: Database developers 6.4: Web developers 6.4.1: Web designers 6.4.2: Front end developers 6.4.3: Back end web developers 6.5: Client developers 6.6: Moderators and game masters Section 7: Conclusion 1 Emulators Private servers are all based upon an existing emulator. An emulator is a program you have to compile yourself from a source code and which emulates WOW servers. These emulators are written in C++. It “contains” the systems, the spells, the dungeons mechanics, the boss fights etc... Check this picture for a sum up (taken from modcraft). 1.1 How to use it ? Is it free ? Servers emulators are open source, made by passionate developers and available to everyone. You can download the source code, spend few hours setting it up and you have your own server running. There are tutorials to help you out in this process. You don’t need to know how to program to compile. 1.2 Database Whether you use a repack (see below) or your own compiled server, you need a database to populate the world and save all the data created ingame (items, characters abilities, friend list etc...). It requires you to set it up but there are tutorials for this aswell. It is provided with the emulator or the repack. Within the database, you can create new quests, new simple events, new NPCs and tons of different things. It’s not complex when your goal is only to add simple content. Yes, scripting quests is not hard technically, tedious maybe, but not hard. It requires (some) SQL knowledge. 1.3 Tell me more about emulators Available and widely used emulators are Mangos, cMangos and TrinityCore. There are other emulators like OregonCore. I let you find more informations about this by yourself if you’re interested. 1.3.1 Why are there almost only WOTLK and Vanilla private servers ? [...] It's a bit too long to post it entirely there, and I already formatted it on my website (in two versions, one is mobile friendly and in black and white if you don't like the design) in order to avoid doing it again here, so if you're interested in reading more, check this page ! If you already read my other documents, please, comment only about this particular one on this thread, not about another because I will create a thread for each and you will then be able to comment it without going off-topic and without confusing other readers. In top of that, you may find all the answers you need if you read the whole folder's content. You can also contact me by email. PS : I put this message here because I think people going to the tutorial section most likely know all of this (couldn't find a more general place to talk about this on Lordcraft).
  11. Hello Lordcraft, I wrote a lot of documents about the WOW private server scene recently and it's time to show it to as many people as possible. It speaks of the actual situation and what happens within WOW emulation, why everybody is failing etc... Links and content removed for the moment. I will make them easier to read.

  15. TIPS: Erase edges smoothly and before setting the brightness, contrast, sharpness & merging Try to focus on one or two areas of detail drawing at a time Don't over-do it with colours The BG colour shadows aren't necessary The brushes aren't accurate and can be changed, these come in together with Photoshop CC and weren't modified Smudging reduces the quality, not only in hair, but in most of the things, really If drawn in Paint Tool Sai, try using as less equaliser as possible unless you plan to rule the world. It's a simple tutorial on drawing hair. Beginners not advised, try at your own risk of rage. Draw with mouse at your own risk of rage.

  16. Hello! In this thread I'll give you some ideas and information on how to get started before you say "Photoshop is hard to use!" because if you say that, you're wrong. It's easy to use after you learn the basics and practice a little. But, before I begin with the guide itself, let me show some example of what you can do with the power of Photoshop. Photo Manipulation: Photo manipulation is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means. http://www.youthedesigner.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/photoshop-examples-21.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/photo_manipulation_12.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/photo_manipulation_34.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/photo_manipulation_23.jpg Typography: Typography is performed by typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic designers, art directors, comic book artists, graffiti artists, clerical workers, and anyone else who arranges type for a product. http://d2f8dzk2mhcqts.cloudfront.net/117_Earth/final_1920.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/typeinp13.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/typeinp16.jpg http://webdesignledger.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/typeinp18.jpg Web Design: Most of the websites are now designed using Photoshop because there you have unlimited ways to customize your website and make it how you want it to be. http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/013/a/e/Web_design__Amazium_by_sergitosuanez.jpg http://slodive.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/single/ormanclark.jpg Now because I got your attention and I know that you want to learn how to do that, I'll start with the guide. The first step is to learn the basics of Photoshop, and that means we must learn how to use the tools, filters and the other many options of PS. To learn that, I'll add the links for some tutorials from YouTube. Remember! This is a verry important step, so don't jump over this. You can't do much if you don't know how to use Photoshop... So. 1. Tool Uses & Basics - Good tutorial for learning how to use the tools and some other basics. 2. Opening and Saving Files - Yes, the most important part is to know how to save your hard work and open it later for re-editing or to send it to someone. PhotoShop CS5 for Beginners - #02. Opening and Saving Files - YouTube 3. Resizing Images - 6 Minutes tutorial. You have nothing to lose by learning how to resize a image without losing the quality. 4. Beginner Masking Technique - In this tutorial you'll actually learn how to cut someone or even an object from a picture and place it over another picture/background (Exemple. You cut the bird shape from a picture and put it on a background with the sky.) 5. Using the pen tool - How to use the pen tool in photoshop. Skills covered in this tutorial include curving, defining anchor points, and making custom shapes using the pen tool. (Making Shapes) (Using The Pen Tool For Paths) 6. Quick Photofilter Effect - This will help you in changing the colors of the picture to something darker/lighter than the original. 7. Changing Hair/Eye Color - Get more skills in colors editing by following this guide to learn how to change hair and eyes color but you can do the same for other things. 8. How To Smudge - Smudging is a verry used method in signatures and wallpapers. I suggest you to take a look. 9. Adjustment Layers - Use the adjustment layers, give your photos and wallpapers nice effects. This is based on colors changing but verry usefull. 10. Downloading, Installing, and Using Brushes - Brushes are used most of the time in wallpapers and signatures and in this guide you'll learn how to download, install and how to use them. Awesome! You're on the right way to a professional designer. And now because we know the basics of Photoshop we can go at the next level of tutorials Don't worry, advanced doesn't means it's for the pro designers, it means that we'll focus on creating designs with more work, like wallpapers, signatures, web designs, etc. You don't need to follow all of the guides I'll post, but at least try to follow some of them or maybe you want to focus on only one of the designs types. So, lets start with some video tutorials because there you can see exactly how it's made, not like pictures tutorials. 1. Signatures - The signatures are mostly used for forums as something that will represent yourself and are not larger than 500x250(Horizontal) / 250x500(Vertical), not because I say but if it's larger it can be considered wallpaper. I normaly use a size around 400x160 but it's up to you. Photoshop Signature Tutorial - Stock & Texture Part 1 - YouTube (Good tutorial to learn how to use textures, stocks and brushes.)
