[nodebb-plugin-openfantasy] Full-fledged RPG system for NodeBB


  • @psychobunny
    Ah, when I take at look at ./nodebb watch I do not see it at all ...strange

  • Admin

    Hmm.. and you've activated it in the control panel yeah? The cash mod needs to be active too. Let me install this on a fresh copy of NodeBB and see if I run into anything


  • @psychobunny
    Yeah, so I thought, "Hey, let me try to uninstall it from the plugins admin link" I tried to do that and this message showed: "You Still Have To Activate This Plugin To Use It". I'm trying to uninstall it 🙂 Could be something I have done to screw it up but I'm not sure.

  • Admin

    Hey its not you, there's something wrong on our end. Not sure if related to the latest refactor of the plugins panel, or if it's something in ADR, give me a few and I'll get back to you!


  • @psychobunny
    Thanks for your help! Sorry to bug ya on this, I'm just very excited to see this alive again 🙂

  • Admin

    Alright, we figured it out 🙂 The latest NodeBB core had an issue with plugin activation, so if you update via git pull you should be able to activate ADR : )

    Seems to have worked! The RPG link is now at the top of the menu 🙂 Thanks for your help. I'll test it out and see if any others want to help over on FB. I think I should get a domain name instead of the ip though. So, I'll work on it. Thanks again! I'll report back anything I see or have questions about.

  • Admin

    np 🙂 As I said in the OP I've only spent about two weekends on this, definitely have a ways to go before we can consider it fully functional 🙂

    I did a little test today on the battle system and noticed that the npc and my character were always missing each other. I was finally able to flee from the battle after a few failed attempts. I'll do a clean install tonight and try again.

    On another note, thanks for your hard work with this project. I know it's been a few years and I'm excited to see it back.

    One thing I wish the old system had that maybe this one can, is the ability to customize what abilities, classes, names etc in the system. So, the term "Spirit Points" I could change in the admin to "Life Points" . If that makes any sense.


  • @psychobunny excellent, it was you the author of these mod phpBB !!

    haha don't. I haven't ported over the NPC damage code yet, so that's why your battle's a stalemate. You might be missing a lot if you're using your bare fists though. Will wrap this up on the weekend 🙂

    Yeah, sounds good to me. It's something I want to write for NodeBB actually (the ability to customize language strings in the ACP), so it's something I'll do higher up that will apply to ADR as well 🙂

    • Well once I finally got my site up and running I tried to install the rpg mod again and it kills the site 😕

    Correction, when I did the npm install from the console it is fine now. Installing it from the admin page somehow messed it up.

  • GNU/Linux

    I almost installed. Hope it will be ready for production soon.

  • Admin

    Hey all, haven't touched this last weekend although I wish I could! (was really busy with other stuff) Just letting you all know its still on my mind, and I can't wait to finish this. You should see my whiteboard 😉


  • Whoops I got so excited I didn't read the "don't install it yet" part.

    Too late.

    I'm still going to screw around in it 🙂 Sounds like a blast.

  • Admin

    Ah it sucks right now, I need a few more weeks to get this working properly.

    There was something like 300+ plugins developed for the original mod. I haven't mass-emailed the developers just yet but I'm hoping that a few of them will swing by and port their stuff once I get this finished. Kinda cool that a few of the above were already part of the NodeBB community but knew about ADR from before!

    Just goes to show you never know who is lurking on the 'net 🙂

    I had a game on my old BBS that was similar. It's the simple games that become the most addictive.

  • Admin

    I think the most famous BBS game is probably LotGD (original LoRD), maybe that's the one you're talking about

    Legend of the Red Dragon was pretty good.

    The Pit was dominating!!!

  • Admin

    Never got into LoRD but definitely did a lot of work with LotGD, loved that game, spent a lot of time adding cool stuff to it once upon a time 🙂
