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


  • @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...

    • Unlock Secrets
    • Guild HQ (I have subforums+ installed, so I need to make pretty big changes to the mod)
    • Learn Skill
    • Item status and advanced enchanting
    • Shop NPC mod
    • Monster NPCs battles
    • Store Hours
    • Event logs
    • ADR Tournaments
    • Buffs (I actually thought I had it :o.)
      I'm going to install them, because you were a big name back then..:) thanks for your amazing work on ADR itself and your mods!

    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 🙂


  • Our NodeBB plugin architecture doesn't use anything crazy like that at all 🙂

    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?scr.bmp
    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! 😃

  • Swedes

    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.

  • Admin

    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!

    I LOVE This Idea! 🙂

  • Admin

    A few weekends ago I updated this plugin to 0.7 and worked on a ton of battle and animation code 🙂

  • GNU/Linux

    Awesome, I started my journey on the web on an RPG forum 🙂

  • Swedes

    This is really cool, a lot of work 😉

    If you had something similar then it was probably ADR by phpBB? 😉 This is a continuation of that project 🙂
