Interest In A L2 Control Panel?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, so the last time I played L2 was when Gracia 2 was released. I was playing on a server a I have created with some friends (former owner of L2Queen in case anyone knows or remembers). Back then, I was really young and I couldnt do much since I wasnt educated enough and I had no experience with programming at all. I always wanted to build a server on my own so I decided to come back here and see whats up. If I am not mistaken, nowadays Lineage is dead pretty much and other games like League of Legends have all the traffic.

 

I have a really great storyline to base my Lineage server on but at this moment I dont have the time neither to start nor to focus on  a project and this is where I need your opinion.

 

Instead of creating a server I decided to create a Control Panel for the Lineage 2 servers and I will release it on the forums here when its done. I am willing to start working on this but at least I would like to know that someone is going to use my product and that I am not releasing it into a dead audience. 

 

Things I am thinking to include:

 

  • Register System (Including Activation)
  • Account Management
  • Character Statistics

I would really appreciate it if you posted your opinion and a few suggestions of what would you like to see in the project.

 

Sincerely,

George "Y-Less"

In all honesty it would be a waste of time since it has been done countless times before. I would much rather focus on contributing to l2jserver these sort of things because they are all for user friendlyness and the plug and play mentality.

How you mean? I may be mistaken but I was searching in the forums to see if a Control Panel exist and all I found was just a few guys selling their web development services. Didn't notice any open source product at all.

Bcs there isn't anything free. Only shared theengo acp with backdoors and for rdy acp, like demort, they ask ~200$ or so.

Because you only mentioned useless stuff like account activiton/creation. Besides that an l2 control panel would further increase the plug and play mentality which was always the downfall of l2j.

 

This may be harsh but 90% of the people who open servers should never even try to begin with. It is so easy i can teach it to my 6y old nephew easily in a week how to run a server it is so easy with all the available tools.

The problem with ACPs is that they require the player to be offline for most of the actions to happen.

 

A while ago i started coding a acp that connects to a restful api which runs inside the l2jserver, so that every action is instant and it uses actualy l2j code to execute, so the acp itself acts like the middleware.

 

Abandoned it as it doesn't really worth the effort (at least for the way i value my own time).

Just saw this ACP by demort. Looks good enough, moreover as .elfocrash mentioned account has to be in some kind of maintenance in order to make changes through the panel (didnt think of it). If this guy has this issue solved, he is the winner.

I didnt really know what to add, thats why I asked for your suggestions. It couldnt be that hard for me to develop a ticket or donation system. Regarding the startup servers, its not their fault. To be honest, I started my server using a compiled rev of L2jEqual (dont really remember the name, correct me if Im wrong) when I was 13. I selected  a few spots, created farm zones, added some items to the client and I added my server on HopZone. The first time it got rejected due to downtime, then I found a friend and he hosted my server on his computer. I was lucky enough and I got 50 players/hour online and a top of 150 players online.

 

Had no idea of programming, and after some time I realised that replacing NPC and making changes in-game doesnt really fix the bugs, and thats when I quitted because I couldnt support it anymore without programming. You shouldnt be able to start a server with a pre-compiled pack.

Listen mate, in my opinion, it is not that bad to work something for free once in a while. Indeed, it may be time consuming or it doesnt really worth the effort, but if I didnt have anything else to do, I would give it a shot. If you dont mind answering, which API did you use and what language are you using? PHP?

The server side API is Java SE and my website is written in .NET Core C#

I understand that and its good you did realize that. To tell you the honest to god truth because of the reasons i said before i see no use for such a tool maybe a mimic of the ingame admin panel but thats way too much work for little gains.

My opinion on this is to create something that you really want people to use.Something that will make their actions easier and something that can be used in order to provide them a better gameplay.Since Lineage 2 has lost its popularity and the traffic is nearly dead you have to consider that you are creating it for yourself first and then for the community.Don't worry about the use of it, even if a single person uses it , in my opinion, it worths the time.

    • Я понимаю что тебе широкомыслящему все яснее, но есть много НО: 1. Ты постоянно используешь термин "война". Это юридический термин, разве Украина и РФ находятся в состоянии войны? Почему Украина не объяаляет войну в таком случае?  Киев за 3 дня - речь как раз о войне. Вывести из строя центры управления войсками и успокоить наркомана с Банковой не проблема в случае объявления войны. В текущих реалиях этот персонаж видимо для чего то нужен.  2. С чего ты решил что правда идет только с Запада? Потому что тебе так удобно и "тебя" они поддерживают, но есть проблема - Украина всего лишь разменная монета. Ты сам уже писал выше что Америка воюет руками украинцев. Я понимаю ненависть к РФ и тд, но понимание что тебя используют для решение своих проблем не вызывает ощущения что на самом деле тебя используют как марионетку?  И еще немного про правду: в США не раз признавали ложь в своих словах: перед вводом войск в Ирак (когда негр в ООН тряс пробиркой с солью, выдавая ее за хим оружее), устное обещание не расширять НАТО и так далее.  Подумай над этим, может быть неровен час и Украину надуют.  И ваша тетка кстати тоже врала про "зверства военных РФ" (не помню как ее зовут), потом сама призналась во лжи. Объяснения типо она переживала / стресс / и прочее тут не прокатят. Она знала что сочиняет на ходу и этому нет оправдания. Как и твоей истории с военкоматом кстати.  3. Можно линк как в РФ происходит грызня во власти? Перебои в снабжении на фронте это нормальная история, так было всегда и у всех во время военных конфликтов. Я хз чему тут удивляться.  4. Не могу согласиться с тем, что на Украине всегда говорили правду, поскольку советник наркомана Арестович признавался в том, что он врет.

    • Ты по прежнему узко мыслишь. Начиная с "Киев за 3 дня" до того как ваш пыл начал приубавляться с прогрессирующим продвижением и успехами ВСУ. Психологически ты все равно пытаешься защищать свое моральное состояние фантазиями что вы воюете с НАТО, что вы "вторая армия мира великой руцкой империи", придумывая разные оправдания чтоб хоть как-то минимизировать проигрыш этой войны обманывая самого себя. Когда понемногу на подсознании ты начинаешь понимать что возможно все таки Украина все это время говорило правду, а ваше правительство накладывало лапшу вам на уши и продолжает это делать ещё больше и ещё невероятней. Что в эту лож даже тупому идиоту невозможно поверить или хоть как-то оправдать. На текущий момент вся ваша пропаганда уже сыпется, грызня во власти уже происходит, фронт из за нехватки снабжения сыпется, темпы провалены, обычный народ который поддерживал Z начинает открывать уже глаза на правду. Не это ли и есть агония путинского режима? Он сделал все ошибки которые мог сделать и ускорил развал РФ. Дальше уже и не нужно напрягаться, остается только брать попкорн и наблюдать развитие событий. Что касается Лимана, дальше на очереди Луганск и Херсон.

    • Скажу за себя: я никогда не кричал Крым наш и что либо подобное. Более того, я сам был не в восторге от этой движухи, так как из за этого купил новую машину почти в 2 раза дороже чем она стоила до истории с "Крым наш". Пару раз ездил в Крым на машине - я хз что стоило ожидать от этой поедки, но там как была разруха, так и остается. Да, постоили Тавриду может быть в Севастополе что то еще новое, но в целом, стоит съехать с трассы - моментально попадаешь в разруху.  Про то, что будут плевать в лицо - это не новость, это уже давно происходит. Я кстати этого и не понимаю, почему в ответ на плевок не полетит кулак в челюсть. Слишком мягкое политичекское руководство при разговорах с ЕС. Синие мобики на видюшках - это позор, я согласен. С другой стороны меньше таких останется, тем чище будет генофонд. Про Лиман: Да, мячик был на стороне ВСУ. Для РФ ситуация может стать как хуже, так и лучше, время покажет. На фронте не бывает так что всегда везло только одной стороне. НАТО: 99.9% что Украину не возьмут в НАТО. По крайней мере пока конфликт не закончится. В противном случае ни от Украины, ни он НАТО, ни от РФ ничего не останется. Заявления Зеленского выглядит как агония и пустословие для своего народа, дабы показать что он хоть что то делает. P.S. Это уже ни для кого не секрет, что Украина в настоящий момент неофициальный полигон между НАТО и РФ.
