Upcoming hak update 2.11 - Open testing
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:51:29 AM »
Salutations fellow mist dwellers!

Even if it's only been a short while since we had our last hak update, we are now close to ready with yet one more. It is somewhat smaller in scope, but still filled to the brim with all sorts of goodies. First of all though, it adds several new PrCs, a long range of new feats and an update to the parry system.

You can read about all the new feats here: http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=47386.0

And the update to the parry system here: http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=47441.0

And here is some info on the new PrCs: http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?topic=47451.0

However, before fully implementing it on the main server, we really could use some help testing. We've put up a test server using the same IP as our main server, but using port 5122 instead (so direct connect to 46.4.59.55:5122).

To be able to enter the test server, you need to download and install this package: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zJRe8CQZYJ47TeazPJLFM2ovz-eLfpuI/view?usp=sharing (extract it to your NWN install directory, overwriting existing files).

We'd appreciate if you could give it a try and report back any bugs or other issues on the forums. Please pre-fix any topic you make pertaining to the hak test with "Hak-test". The test server runs a copy of the current server vault, but upon entry you will be given level 20 and permission to pick every PrC that you meet the requirements to. And don't hesitate experimenting - whatever happens on the test server will not affect the main server and your character there.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

So far it all looks very awesome!

I start some bug list here:

- from lvl 19 to 20 the last level is not stored but weirdly it urges you to level when you receive or give away items then you level but the level is not stored - once you reveive or give away a new item it urges you to lvl again
- cave at vistani camp Vallaki is missing
- challenge at various dungeons (also in low lvl areas) is adjusted to lvl - guess that is intentional? - it's nice :)
- new feats tested from People's Champion: all work pretty well so far
- exhausting system seems not to work
- casting on CEP weapons works

Thanks to all who've helped test so far. A new version is now available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qiMfjaonmKWDpZsmv_v6HBXeb6HiD_Qv/view?usp=sharing

It mainly fixes the issues with the parry system (notably tower shield AC and ACP) and issues with the new feats and PrCs as reported on the forum.

Please help us verify that the reported errors are now fixed and keep us posted if you find new.

Cheers!

Alright, we are now ready with what should hopefully be our last test version of the new hak. Grab the package and help us getting this baby ready for release!

Get it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GlH9jKXttm2iFRzTGsm8uBBhWovws1ub/view?usp=sharing

Of course, we are interested in learning of any new bugs or glitches you find, but also help us verifying that those we hope we've fixed - in fact truly are. Take part in the discussion and reporting frenzy on our bug report forum: http://www.nwnravenloft.com/forum/index.php?board=23.0

Cheers!

I've said it before but I really and truly believe in it this time! Unless it turns out to dissolve every character into bits and molecules, this should be the last and final hak version: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zJRe8CQZYJ47TeazPJLFM2ovz-eLfpuI/view?usp=sharing

Grab it and go do whatever crazy things you can come up with on the test server.

Thanks!
