  1. After a couple of technical hitches we have successfully updated to vB 4.2. This *may* fix a few of the recent issues people were having. If you have any significant problems with the board post-upgrade, please report them to us here or via PM.
  2. User sigs/display pics are one of those areas where it's still technically illegal to use copyrighted material, but the publishers will never bother enforcing that. The worst you'd get in any farfetched scenario where they did would be notice to remove it anyway, you'd think.
  3. One example of when such a brand rip game gets sanctions is "School of wizardry", a Facebook game. It was an alright game, but a crazily blatant rip of Harry Potter, about as blatant as one could be without having Harry Potter in the title. Eventually, they had to completely rework the artwork & names used in the game. Now they appear to be gone for good. So yes, you can definitely get into trouble for doing this!
  4. Version 1.x of the source code never had item equipping. Therefore neither the old Lite nor the new Free have it either.
  5. Hi samz, This happens because the EXP needed to advance past level 1624 is a number greater than 2147483647. So on this line: $ir['exp_needed']=(int) (($ir['level']+2)*($ir['level']+2)*($ir['level']+2)*0.5); When the (int) typecast occurs, it tries to change a number bigger than 2147483647 into an integer, which can only be 2147483647 at most on most servers. So it wraps back around to a negative number, causing your problem. Possible solutions: * Don't use ints for storing/calculating EXP - floats can hold bigger numbers * Reduce EXP requirements per level by adjusting the numbers in the formula * Put on a level cap, since levels 1600+ are pretty ridiculous to start with.
  6. You might want them to get the bug that happens when you go to http://eurogangster.com (without the www) fixed.
  7. Hi lynm77, The database::free_result() method has been present since MCCodes 2.0.4 so you should not be receiving this error in 2.0.5b! You might want to try redownloading the 2.0.5b package fresh from mccodes.com and re-uploading the class folder's files (class_db_mysql.php and class_db_mysqli.php) to fix this bug.
  8. This small edge case bug should be resolved now and the purchase can be completed.
  9. Yeah but those small speed increases are *almost* negligible compared to the other parts of a script. You do raise a fair point, but it's hardly necessary to cut out some purchasers (or make them have to change things themselves) for the sake of such small gains. We don't want to limit freedom of creativity on the marketplace (besides anything illegal of course) but changing mysql_ to $db-> doesn't take long and makes sure neither we nor the sellers get this type of support request.
  10. mysql_ isn't allowed without an error only if the client uses mysqli on install which has ALWAYS been an option. It's just that before the patches mysqli was broken for other reasons than just mod compatibility so pretty much no-one used it, making mods with mysql_ work fine 99% of the time. Anyways, people releasing v2/Redux mods with mysql_ instead of $db-> is just lazy coding and such mods marked as v2 or Redux and submitted to the marketplace will not be approved.
  11. This happens for me on old (3.x) versions of Firefox; can I suggest an upgrade if possible if you're in the same position? It seems to be to do with javascript containing the text "</script>" inside a javascript quoted string.
  12. Rest assured that there are additional license terms which the user must accept in the special discounted Redux purchase page. As a final note on it, the principle behind these terms is relatively simple - it stops v2 owners from just buying the license for $40, selling it to someone else without a v2 license for somewhere between 40 and 120, and making a profit whilst doing very little.
  13. Nah. I was referring to the Redux licenses purchasable for $40 USD on mccodes.com which are specifically intended for v2 owners to make new games with Redux themselves or change their existing game to Redux. They are discounted for this reason and thus carry extra license terms. If this license has been purchased for the full price from MCCodes and Calum is just choosing to sell it for $40 then there is nothing wrong with that!
  14. Official word: Yes, you can sell licenses to other people. This means you have to stop using it on whatever domain you bought it for and they are also limited to using it under the same terms you were (one domain). Contact us to do this so we can move the license over to your customer account so you can redownload the source & receive updates etc. HOWEVER: If you bought a Redux license for $40 you may NOT sell or transfer it. These discount licenses are for the purchaser's use only and you must pay additional fees to allow it to be transferred/sold.
