As you may be have seen, there is a new Gold Server - Zone!
This server was originally made by Angel and Dell, with graphics from Blookat. But because of staff problems the original staff quit. So we took the server content, rewrote all scripts using new scripting engine, introduced a new character using the one from Graal Kingdoms, with new helmets and bodies and redid all animations. Garel also helped with drawing new graphics for the dropships.
For a quick introduction I added a link to the graalonline.com - News about Zone.
In a few minutes I will post the things we have planned to add to Zone in the future, and welcome everyone to post their opinions and ideas.

Should be an Assault mode, a la Halo 2! Basically 'bomb the base'. The object of the game is to take a bomb to the other team's base and arm it by standing in a certain spot for about 5 seconds to arm it.

I love it. Is there any way I could help out in the construction of new maps? It's a very interesting tileset.

It's alot of fun and adds a very cool new dimension to Graal, and I think it will be a great success as long as it is taken care of and updated.

I logged on Zone yesterday and it was still in Under Construction mode, and when I saw it on the gold list today with like 130 people, I was a bit confused! But then I realized... Oh, this is that playerworld I was on before.. And then my brain turned into jello. :(

It looked great though, you guys did a fine job there. I'm excited to hear some space-synthy musics as soon as you get that music pack thing working. :)

We were lacking GOLD servers, and considering the quality of the server and the time put in by office-staff (well, e.g: Stefan) then it was considered to be better off as a gold server.

New scripting engine?

Is this a part of the current Graal client, since it can run the scripts online,
or is it something that we (who rent playerworld space) can do with the npc server currently? I would very much like to know more information about this ....

It's using new scripting engine on serverside, while the clients get the script version they support (v3.1 clients connecting to it could theoretically use new script if you do something like if (graalversion>=3.1) addweapon("NewScriptingTest"); )

I know this is off topic, but when I log on graal it makes my character run down forever and he wont stop. But if I try to use Graal3D, it flashes and I cant see the menus and I cant even log onto anything. :frown:

If you're lacking gold playerworlds, why not have a trustable team make one? *wink wink cough wink cough*

Do you happen to have V4?
Do you know the significance of V4?

Remember all those ideas you guys keep having about things not looking good or making huge additions where everyone complains "lol 2 lagy 4 me". With V4, that's a THING OF THE PAST.

I'm sure none of you know what computer languages are, but I'll say this anyway. V4 is programmed in C++ which enabled graal to be virtually 10x less laggy. V2 and V3 (I think V3) were programmed in Delphi, which was not powerful enough to support all of these things.

Thanks to V4, you will see playerworlds grow bigger and better. Of course, you wouldn't know that because Zone is your whole graal life.

Because programming language makes up about 90% of any program's network latency (and, hell, even performance because I know you have no clue what lag is), and because Stefan totally ditched Delphi for v4.

Lemme have a go. Lag is an interruption inbetween the connetion of the network system you are playing from to your home computer. This interruption stalls the connection for a certain time period. Thus causing lag. This "lag" is usually on online games, such as Graal, so when lag happens someone walks past you then lag attacks and that person is gone. Overall, lag is a basic connection interruption which leaves you immobile for a period of time.

I trust that definition.
Lag is just another technical term that has lost it's meaning among gamers through overusage. The Game freezes? "ZOMG LAG!" When it could actually be your processor having to much to, well, process at one time. That will essentially crash your computer.
And, from what I understand, "Latency" has something to do with connection between the client PC and the server. (High latency=Bad, Low latecy is good)
The quoted definition is the actual definition.

The usual delay between the actual time a service is rendered or an item is supplied and the time it is paid for and recorded. Lag includes both claims that have not yet been submitted and claims that have been submitted but not yet paid. Lag is the result of administrative efficiency of the provider, the employer (if employer involvement is required in supplying claim forms or verifying eligibility), the employee, and the claim administrator. Human procrastination is a major factor in lag.

The measure of the time between the center of mass of precipitation to the center of mass of runoff (on the hydrograph). Basin lag is a function of not only basin characteristics, but also of storm intensity and movement. Some hydrologic texts define lag from the center of mass of rainfall to the hydrograph peak. lag (time)

In continuous nuclear logging techniques, radioactivity measurements are made over a period of time in order to average statistical variations. During the statistical averaging period (time constant), the detector is continually moved while surveying. The distance the detector moves during one time constant is commonly called the amount of lag. See dynamic measure point.

1. That part of the difference between the output of an instrument and its input that is due to the failure of the instrument to respond instantaneously to variations of the input signal. It is a function of the instrument's time constant. See time lag. 2. A time displacement of a time series. See autocorrelation. 3. See delay.

Lag is a term indicating the latency of a connection, mainly to the bad. More lag indicates a longer time for your game to communicate with the game server, and thus a higher amount of lag indicates slower responses.

Lag distance is a distance (h) within which any two samples (a pair) is taken for variogram calculation. Lag tolerance ( ) is assigned to the lag for setting a search interval for pairs: . So the pairs are searched within h distance. Often, default lag tolerance is set to half lag distance ( =h/2). See 7.1 Variogram calculation parameters.

Please learn the difference between network lag and client lag. The former does not slow your player down, but (more accurately) slows other people down on your screen. The latter is your own computer drawing graphics slowly (or processing things slowly).

Question: Since Cable companies give an area an amount of bandwith to share amongst its users, would the exceeding of that bandwith, making your computer slower than hell, be client or server lag?

What do you mean by "the exceeding of that bandwidth"?

someonesomewhere
09-01-2005, 09:07 AM
I mean when your computer starts slowing down during peek hours of Internet usage.
That is what happens when your computer "Exceeds the bandwith provided to cable users in the area"
I'm not going to go look up bandwith, but I'm pretty sure it is the ammount of traffic that the Cable Company allows its users to have on their own/other websites.
Ex: Computer i fastest at 3:00 A.M., slowest at 3:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M.

Peak hours reduce the available bandwidth on such shared connections, yeah. There isn't really any exceeding going on, and this shouldn't slow your computer down at all but only slightly reduce your maximum download/upload speed. After all, this is a network thing, not a client thing.

The problem is that the cable company (Cox) has a monopoly in my area, granted a Goverment-Controlled monopoly, and their motto is, "Why do more than we have to?"
