LoneWolf 13.0.12 Beta Released - 13.0.11 has been recalled.
  • fixed: corrupted MORE and MORE2 values broken by 13.0.11 beta (Duke)
NOTE: it is *highly recommended* to go back to a backup based on the 13.0.10 beta release !!!! This bug *may* have corrupted many things on your shard including books, boats, houses, and more... (

If you have a BIG problem (going back too far in time) please post the support forum. We may be able to determine the most recent backup to use.

Imho this was a bug *worse* than a crash (which we fortunately usually don't have).

I apologize for all the inconvenience this may have caused.

LoneWolf 13.0 And 12.9.13 Scripts Released
Monday, Aug 4, 2003, at 06:16 AM
Filed Under LONE-WOLF.   -Guid-
LoneWolf 13.0 and LoneWolf 12.9.13 scripts have been released. From LoneWolf:
'QSF - Quest System Files'

QSF is designed to help shard admins to build and maintain their shards as well as to script quests. It also allows distributed worldbuilding and the exchange of quests between shards. This is achieved by placing parts of a world into script files that can be added to and removed from a world independently.

QSF is an integral part of the LoneWolf server, so it can't be used with other emulators. You may however be able to create a world with LW QSF and then convert it into the format of your favourite emulator.

LoneWolf 12.9.13 Beta Released
Monday, Jul 21, 2003, at 06:33 AM
Filed Under LONE-WOLF.   -Guid-
LoneWolf 12.9.13 Beta has been released:
We usually do not announce internal/technical improvements of the LW code here. The 'new allocation scheme for items and chars' is something LB and me started to work on back in July 2000 (!). It involved direct changes to 12,000 lines of code and probably 25,000 more to support them.

There aren't too many obvious benefits for the admins/users from this change, but this is an important *milestone* in the history of LoneWolf and admittably, we are rather proud of it :)

LoneWolf 12.8.5 Released
Wednesday, Sep 18, 2002, at 06:22 AM
Filed Under LONE-WOLF.   -Guid-
LoneWolf 12.8.5 beta has been released:

NOTE: this beta requires the new fishing.scp layout. Get it from the files section.
  • fixed: non-moveable items bcoming moveable when released (Duke)
  • fixed: continued massive bugfixing of network code. Special thx goes to Correa for pointing out most of the problems (Correa/LB)
  • fixed: non client connections received delayed logout. that's obviously wrong (LB)
  • added: "I WISH TO LEAVE THIS BUILDING" in house speech to allow escape from locked houses (Duke, idea by Sayro + fix for Duke's impl by Sayro)
  • fixed: dclicking the foot of the mast of a boat will no longer give magic trap and corrupt the tillerman (Duke)
  • fixed: temp-effects related server-crash (LB)
  • fixed: pouring Potions from mortar into empty bottles broken (Duke)
  • fixed: pouring sound in the above situation missing/broken (Duke)
  • fixed: stabled pets are now fed instead of getting more hungry (Duke)
  • changed: the hunger msg "You are still stuffed..." to "You are slightly peckish" due to Sayro's request (Duke)
  • fixed: summoned creatures no longer leave a corpse (Duke)
  • added: Login to houses when not a friend (Duke)
  • changed/fixed: redesigned/redone core of networking class. (send/receive) (LB) should be far more robust in extreme siutations network like. (e.g heavy traffic, bad connections etc) previously those situations lead to synch-problems which manifested as client crashes/freezes and other bad things. now this shouldn't happen anymore.
note: last betas contained lots of network code bugfixes. adding all of them, in particular this one, it's an almost complete rewite.

Lots of new rather complex code, equals a not zero probabily to add new bugs what contradicts the intention to fix bugs to some degree. (anyway, tried to be super-thoroughly to avoid new ones) but this step had to be taken. old code couldn't be "completely" fixed without a rewrite. feedback would be highly appreciated.

note2: extreme situations (in networking) tend to happen infrequently.
  • fixed/changed: security loophole closed. hacktools can't crash server anymore.
  • fixed: CHECKCHAR_AGE 1 didn't work. it always refused to delete chars, even if chars older than 7 days
NOTE: we changed the way age is calculated. as a consequence old pre 12.8.5 generated CREATIONDAY flags are invalid and will get automatically deleted, replaced with current date of first server start with this version.

NOTE: this (conversion) happens only one time, when server detects pre 12.8.5 values. After first worldsave not anymore. (Opik/LB)

Example: player x has a char which is one month old (cant delete due to this bug), his/her shard op switches to 12.8.5 today. still cant delete because conversion set creation day to today. but in a week he will be able to delete.
  • fixed: BAN from house now works (Duke)
  • fixed: Rename pets didn't work sine beta 12.8.4 (LB)
  • fixed: bandages not reduced since beta 12.8.4 (LB)
  • fixed: corpses always naked since beta 12.8.4 (LB)
  • fixed: tracking skill broken (LB)
  • changed: better control of items fished up. Requires the new fishing.scp layout (Opik and Duke)

LoneWolf Adds Encryption Back
Monday, Aug 26, 2002, at 06:51 AM
Filed Under LONE-WOLF.   -Guid-
The following was posted in the LoneWolf Forums:
Cheat-tools are bad (that's a Mr. Mackie / "Southparkian" bad, uhmkay !?)

Annoying for shard ops to hunt for cheaters, but nothing really substantial dangerous. So I thought. Unfortunately I had been taught differently.

There are annoying cheat tools like injection and dangerous ones like Well for obvious reasons I won’t give names, URL’s and further details. The later ones can do REAL damage. Like provoked server crashes, logging in without knowing passwords, giving oneself GM privileges, etc., etc. the list is endless and it’s no fun. By the way, the borderline between cheating and internet crime in particular if you do extreme things like crashing a server intentionally is rather thin.

Note: It’s of highest importance for us that you understand the following: Just because we admit in public that there is a problem, doesn’t mean that LW is the only emulator effected. Some are more vulnerable, some less.

But no need for panic ! We did add - currently unique - protections immediately, furthermore the cheat tool problematic didn’t start to exist yesterday.

What’s the problem fighting cheat tools server side ?

Our server is based on the assumption: only OSI clients can connect (or those that behave very similar) If this assumption is intentionally broken by cheat clients, we have a problem. And get loads of “holes” (see the list above what damage can be done to get an idea) Note: without cheat tools that holes don’t exist, so I don’t consider that a bug. (but a huge problem anyway) Furthermore this assumption is inherited, not directly our fault ! If you construct a server with cheat tools in mind, it’s rather easy to fight them. If you have an “already done” server without it, it’s an monumental task to fix them all Getting to the point: it’s too time intensive to fix all holes opened by cheat tools.

We did a different approach to fight them: getting sure no cheat tool/client can connect

How did we do this ?

We added encryption.

In past, OSI encryption had been a major pain in the a** Frequent changes of encryption scheme, high CPU load, difficulties reverse engineering it etc finally made us completely dropping it.

But there are disadvantages of no cryptography: it makes the creation of cheat tools easier.

Well, if we add encryption again, don’t we have the "pains" of encryption back ? High CPU load, frequent changes etc ?

No, we got sure that “our encryption” is “lightweight”, doesn’t change and adds virtually no CPU load.

But major problem remaining: We are open-source. Cheat tool creators might read the source of our encryption and adopt their tools easily.

No, not with this trick:

The encryption keys are completely scriptable/flexible. It doesn’t help to know our source unless they (cheat tool users/attackers/writers) know the - on every shard different - keys.

Each shard op can/should create his/her own(!!!) keys. If the attacker doesn’t know them, no way.

Note that this new stuff of course - also requires client side changes! (=new UO_RICE version)

Everything fully optional.

If you are confused what you need to do to add this protection, don’t worry I’ll describe this in more detail in an extra document

sorry for the over-length and thx for reading.

LoneWolf 12.8.1 Beta Released
Friday, Jul 26, 2002, at 06:36 AM
Filed Under LONE-WOLF.   -Guid-
LoneWolf 12.8.1 beta has been released:
NOTE: if you run a server with less than 512 MB, it is highly recommended that you use this beta instead of the release 12.8 (or prior versions) due to fix #4 !!
  • added: logged warning when invalid LOOT is specified for an npc. (Duke)
  • fixed: "your # has been destroyed" will now use the name from the muls (Duke)
  • fixed: bad char index -1 in file speech.cpp line 87 (Duke)
  • fixed: in some situations (small machine, many items), memory problems could cause LW to wipe the worldfiles (Duke)
  • changed: more initial memory for items to avoid immediate reallocation (Duke)

  • fixed: opening your packanimals packs doesn't check snooping anymore. (LB)
  • changed: empty poison bottle now goes to your backpack instead of to your feet (Duke)
  • fixed: you should now hear the combat sounds of 2 npcs fighting each other (Duke)
  • changed: duration of nightsight increased greatly. (LB)
  • added: region based light levels (LB)
New keywords in regions.scp:


xx: decimal, 0 brightest, 32 darkest

semantics: equivalent to those in server.scp

dungeon: lightlevel of dungeons
fixedlevel: permanent lightlevel
if set to 255 it cycles between brightlevel and darklevel

set all 4 keywords or none. only 1,2,3 of them is not allowed.

if you don't set them, global ones from server.scp will be used

light command also got improved to supports region based lightlevels
light xx(hex)
set global fixedlevel to xx
if -1, enable cycling

light xx(hex) yy(hex)
xx: reginonal fixedlevel (if -1, enable cycling)
yy: region#

note: there is a client side switch called dark nights that influences lightlevel "experience"
if off, all shades from brightest to darkest are enabled
if on, it only "shades" from brightest to mid-dark - and suddently changes to dark. (no shades from mid-dark to dark)
  • added: (small) bandwidth save (light packets optimized/reduzed to minimum). (LB)
  • 13) added: experimental(!) anti fastwalk hacktool option. (LB)
note: if on, server requires higher bandwidth and there might be false alerts (due its experimental nature)
  • fixed: revealed several combat hit messages that were hidden by bugs (Duke)
  • fixed: harditems.scp overwriting items.scp setting in some situations (Duke)
  • fixed: wrong/blinking combat animations (LB)
  • added: DUNGEON 0/1 keyword in region.scp - dungeon detection is hardcoded and based on OSI locations. if you need to override this, because you have build towns in OSI dungeon regions, or build your own dungeons in non OSI dungeon regions, add the keyword dungeon 0/1 to this region.(LB)
  • fixed: fencing with 2-handed weapons *allways* devlivering paralyzing blows. Now like OSI. (Duke)
  • added: stunning blow for special maces delivering double damage (Duke)

Here are some other improvements:

(comments appreciated) (LB)
  • added: revertswap command manual reversation of swap command mentioned in 89) you need this if server is shut down while under this effect. note: this command needs an unused/dummy parameter. (LB)
