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

  • Admin

    Oh hey informpro, I definitely remember you. Nice to see you around πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ˜₯ 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! πŸ˜ƒ

    Yeah, this is cool πŸ™‚ 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!

    I LOVE This Idea! πŸ™‚

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

  • GNU/Linux

    Awesome, I started my journey on the web on an RPG forum πŸ™‚

  • Swedes

    This is really cool, a lot of work πŸ˜‰

  • Admin

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

    If you had something similar then it was probably ADR by phpBB? πŸ˜‰ This is a continuation of that project πŸ™‚


  • long live adr..

    I think i still have everysingle addon ever made.

    I miss seteo blokes website, espeially the albums with chicks in it πŸ˜›


  • I remember when I ran a BBS and had The Pit for my dial-up users to play. Kick ass game and this is a fun addition to many genre of forums.

  • GNU/Linux

    I just installed this on my forums running 0.7-dev and it seems to be working OK. I had to manually copy the translations files since they didn't seem to install correctly but other than that it's working.

    I really want to contribute to this plugin, is there a TODO or project page for this somewhere?


  • Glad this popped up as a new post. This plugins looks awesome...

  • Admin

    @KingCat I'll write up a roadmap / todo on the weekend. Thanks for offering to help πŸ™‚
