Asheron's Call emulator(s) and AC Tool/Divide

Recommended Posts

Well, I have given it some time and I went and checked out the Asheron's Call emulator scene. And Although the server emulator PHAT is no longer being developed. ACEmulator is going strong and new emulator GDLEnhanced has come to the fold. With this I had spent some time testing AC Tool with ACEmulator. What I have found is that AC Tool v5.4.0 works with ACE. And yet AC Tool v5.4.0.4 and v5.5.1 do not work. The Companion in AC Tool v5.4.0.4 was updated by Phinus (I never received the source code for this version). The Companion in AC Tool v5.5.1 was updated with the last code that Phinus had sent to me (sometime prior to his releasing v5.4.04). There is another version of AC Tool that Phinus had released out into the wild. I do not have this version so I can not test it with ACEmulator. And I do not have the source code for it either.

From my limited testing AC Tool v5.4.0 as originally released works with a ACEmulator compiled with from the source downloaded from GitHub on 12-13-2019.

This is good news. For those that want to play Asheron's Call again. You can do so and use AC Tool v5.4.0 for all your scripting needs.

With that in mind I have opened up a Tutorial section in the forums. It has a tutorial on how to set up Asheron's Call to connection to any emulator server. And if you want to, how to setup your own private ACEmulator server.

 

 

I have also started adding the code needed to add Companion to Divide. But, this code is completely based on the AC Tool/Companion v5.4.0. And as such it may be outdated with regards to the currently available Decal, v2.9.7.5 a.k.a 3.0, for Asheron's Call. But, it is the only code that I have and that is working with Decal and ACEmulator. I hope to have a working version of Divide with Companion by the end of January 2020.

 

I want to ask the AC players out there, old and new, to go and give AC Tool v5.4.0 a really good test on the ACE servers. And tell me what problems/bugs you find.

Also, I really would like it if someone, anyone, that knows Phinus to contact him. And ask him to send to me the complete source code for the last working version of AC Tool/Companion that he has. I truly wish to add those changes he had made into AC Tool and add it to Divide. The last time I had heard from him, he had stated that he was going to send it to me. But, that was over 3 years ago. And I have not heard from him in my repeated attempts to contact him since.

 

So, I am working on adding Companion to Divide. So, give me some time to work it out.
