You take only .jar file(from source/build) and replace on your pack . (If you use IL l2jserver for acis , l2jfrozen-core for frozen)

You have to recompile the core each time you want to refresh your server. You have to replace l2jserver.jar, which holds the core side aswell as whatever datapack you edited (sql, xml, htm,...). Previous core is crushed on the process, so consider to track your changes using a SVN (which is a sort of online history of your editions, allowing you to see/revert your editions, even old ones).


Diffs / patches (same thing for different names, a patch is distributed under .diff) are generated using a SVN. It compares local copy (with editions) and online edition (untouched, at latest commited revision) and generate all changes between those 2 revisions.


A commit is an edit you did locally than you uploaded on your SVN, making your SVN one revision higher. All editions are accessible if you checkout your project at HEAD revision (which is the accumulation of all changes you did).


A checkout is a download of your project at a revision X (you choose).


For example, aCis got atm 874 commits. If I checkout project at HEAD revision, I will have project at revision 874. But I can also checkout the project at any passed revision. I can also compute diff patches for one revision, or multiple revisions - which will hold changes made during those revisions, and only that.

so if i rightly understand lets look on example:


i added to core some quest, i recompiled gameserver project and there after compilation i got in dist folder file like l2jserver.jar which also contains on my local pc in gameserver/libs folder.


and all what i need to to change file in my folder with compiled one? 


then if i rightly understand thats work so:

1.after each compilation after i write any update to core i just need swap this l2jserver.jar

2. and after i upgraded my core with new function like event i just need relalize it on server with mysql/xml/html bt way: adding npc which will start this script, which will be used from core (for example).

3. and i dont need after each compilation change all files in my local project.


i just trying understand mechanics how it working.


Thanks for advice.

    • Hey, I don't know if this post really fits there but I've searched everywhere on the internet and this is the most active and helpful place i could find. I was wondering if its possible I could get the login screen of h5 part 4 without the GUI, like without the login screen in the middle, the text on top right and the settings on bottom right. I have no clue when it comes to coding, so I would like some guidance. Is it easy to do? Do I just search it in some folder or do I have to edit some stuff in order to make the GUI go away and then open the game and take a capture of the login screen? I just want to record the login screen without these things so I can make it into an animated wallpaper for me and my friend, h5 part 4 was our favorite. Thanks in advance !
