@baris thanks very much for this. I'll test it now
Edit - from what I can see, everything now works as expected. Thanks
Amazing. I google Advanced Dungeon's and Rabbits the other day to see if there is any new information on it and I find that the RPG system is not only still around, but that some work is being done to bring it back to life. I love those screenshots, it looks exactly the way that I remember it did back in the day. I never had a lot of experience with too many other BBS systems. I donated some money to a site and we got Inferno RPG, but to be perfectly honest, compared to ADR it sucked. I'm definitely bookmarking this board, I want to keep up to date with any information that I can. Keep up the incredible work, you've got quite a few cheerleaders here for you!
We are all ready to test errr break it when the time comes
I installed this today and all the images are broken Any tips / ideas?

0.4.3 introduced some changes in the static dirs, same problem happened with my cash mod as well. I need to update, will do I promise before 0.5x release
@psychobunny I'd tried to install this plugin today, but it ended with crash, and had to uninstall it I have my hosting on openshift cloud fyi. Do you know waht may be wrong?
P.S.think it could easily be converted into gamification plugin, don't you think so?
@Kacper-Domański, I don't believe the plugin is completed. I'm also unsure if it was updated for 0.5.x
This looks......AWESOME!! And INTENSE.
I couldn't tell by the images but does this have PVP? Would be marvelous if I could kick some butt and have the #1 rank on my forum lol
Wow, I can't believe this is happening ;-).
FWIW, I also have my "ADR" pack : https://github.com/vendethiel/ezarena
It has a lot of ADR mods: https://github.com/vendethiel/ezarena/blob/master/mods.txt#L422
(it was based upon ShadowTek's ADR0.3.4 premod, then I upgraded it by hand to 0.4.5 and added/updated tons of mods...)
(sorry, the descriptions are in french... All in all, it's a big premod I made last year because I was bored w/o internet hahaha)
Really happy to see this :-). Great work! I have quite some nodejs experience, so if you can get it up to a "usable" state, feel free to ping me to start porting plugins over!
Oh very cool @Nami-Doc, what was your username down at ADR, I don't recall your username?
I had a quick glance at your mod list and I don't see any of mine that you are using, so maybe I feel a bit sad
ADR for phpBB2 has always been my passion since about 2005, and I would really, really love to have this ported over. I unfortunately have too much things to do with NodeBB, but I promise that this is always in the back of my mind. One day it will be finished!
EDIT: For some reason I do seem to find a lot of french ADR users. Must be the Dr. DLP / Lapin Malin connection
@psychobunny I was really young back then, and my english was terrible (rightfully so, as a french guy...). I still posted a few messages as "Informpro", though.
I don't have any of your mods, are you sure? I have the Xtreme mods, I thought you made those. (I only have one installed, because I don't really like eval, I'm sure you understand hahaha) I tried to integrate "AJAX for ADR", but it had a few security issues, so I've ended up no doing it. It's a cool idea, though!
Anyways, by now, the adr-rpg.com AND adr-support.com forums are down (they were actually up in 2013!), it's kind-of hard to find mods.
I think there was a pack on the last forums (just before the facebook page), but I don't have it anymore... (I just pushed a lot of changes to fix a lot of mods conflicting.)
It actually should be pretty easy to "standalone-ize", but I don't think there are many people who would be interested to inherit a 2005 codebase like that... Hahahaha. That's why your project is so cool :). Bringing some fresh air!
(yes, Dr. DLP was a big name in the french community, but I just got to AD&R because a premodded board from "ezcom-fr.com" used it, and I liked it... I guess we all come from premodded boards :P)
Anyways... Nobody's gonna use my thing... I just made it because I was nostalgic... So at some point I'll try to give you a hand here... You have events, at least. All my files (adr_battle, adr_character, adr_zones, ...) are like 3k to 4k lines long hahaha. And I tried to refactor some of those!
EDIT: I used the wayback machine to find a list of your mods (on adr-rpg.com). However, I only have the names there... Hehehe.
I just need to find a .rar of all the ADR mods... But I might have it already...
Oh hey informpro, I definitely remember you. Nice to see you around
Yeah eval back in 2005 was "okay" (the wild west days of programming :P). It was basically the only way I could think of to do customization/plugin-like functionality at the time.
Our NodeBB plugin architecture doesn't use anything crazy like that at all Well I should have all the mods somewhere on old hard drives or burn on DVD's somewhere, if there's something you're looking for and can't find, feel free to ask

Yes, it's much better :-). I'd even say, better than phpBB3.1's plugin system ... Looks good.

Hehe, I actually found a ZIP I was looking for...
I have 'em all.
Seeing your work actually really motivated me to try and do something...
I've done a lot of changes in the past week, LOL. Guess I'm ready to work on plugins for here if it comes to it :P.
It gave me a better overall view of what I expect from ADR... This one's doomed due to the codebase (even though I fixed a lot of stupid stuff... Like NSEW navigation using zone names instead of IDs... and lots of stuff like that), but it's still good for me because NOSTALGY :P.
I actually realize now it wouldn't be so hard to just have it as a standalone RPG, it's not touching much of phpBB. But hey, who wants to play that PHP stuff rather than new cool in-browser FPS they're capable of doing these days? (and who wants to maintain it... haha)
Damn, this brings me back, it's good to see you still out there @psychobunny. I remember testing ADR in the early stages and running a number of websites with it on phpBB2. I'm definitely going to be setting this up and doing some work with this.
I have literally thousands and thousands of 2D sprites and map tiles (from my previous 2D MMORPG) that I am going to package up this weekend and post here, they are completely free for you all to use on this project. I hope everyone can take advantage of them.
This is fascinating.
so i installed it and what i see? nothing board only say that it installed and activated(cash mod too) but i dont see it in admin panel or on index. what ima doing wrong?
sry for my bad english
@winzombie Might not be compatible or finished. It was a work in progress.
@a_5mith oh thx
I'm new in the NodeBB-Universe and atm im porting my website from Joomla+Kunena to NodeBB. I would really love to see this plugin in the 0.6 Version of NodeBB so my community can use the cash-system for useful stuff. On my last website I had a "points"-system and I always wondered what to do with those points. I never had an answer to that, ... ^^
Anyway, this plugin looks awsome!
Yeah, this is cool All my forums use phpbb 3.1.x but this project is getting better and better for every month I check it out.
I wish I had the time to complete this I'll try and get this working with latest NodeBB so at least you can install it and see the progress for yourself (and maybe even contribute)
EDIT: you know what, I'm going to make this a minimum viable product by just focusing on the shop (which is done, sans-ACP) and cutting out all other code into a branch. Then this could function as a shop to buy things with points your earned from posting. Then when I get more time I'll reintroduce the other aspects, character creation, battling, etc!
