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


  • Our NodeBB plugin architecture doesn't use anything crazy like that at all πŸ™‚

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

    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™‚

    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™‚

  • GNU/Linux

    @psychobunny I've always wanted to make a browser based rpg but never had the wherewithal to create something useable, I think this way I can scratch my itch without having to create all the underlying plumbing haha.

    Also, I'm in the nodebb IRC on freenode if you ever want to come by and chat about it.
