    oh i thought this would fall under the - Bypassing pre-requisities to use an item
    if not then nvm lmao

    btw how to use your item maker, for me it doesnt type anything in game and i have to type it all out by hand
    i tried switching keyboard controls back on and hitting space before i hit mke and still nothing

    honestly just a goe item pmt file would be way better than a pmt file with combo unlocks and tech boosts, then i won't have to have a trainer laying around for when i decide to do FOMAR WITHOUT LIMITS

    even then i could understand why it wouldnt be done, the results would be disastrous if the server couldnt constantly keep up with normal and cheater accounts

    its nice to know what a character can normally equip anyway for just testing builds out

    I was just going for the part of "no equipment restriction a command" ... if Soda said you can bypass them, I guess cheater account checks are already dealt with server side, but at the end you need to bypass it in the client, and a command won't achieve that.

    Running it as admin? ...otherwise you won't be able.

    What does goe mean? lol
    And there isn't any problem with keeping up with cheater/non cheater as they don't mix up rooms or teams (afaik) which limits item sharing too, however different pmt data requires more code.
    "I'm actually too lazy to have different PMT files send anyway... ... ...AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT."

    You'd be better just using a trainer, I actually kinda like the idea of putting up some of those cheats that are laying around, for the lulz...

    Renamed mode so it doesn't give off bad vibes. Currently, Fodra still shows the old mode name and color, but will be updated as soon as I'm able to. Auldrant and Lumireis have been updated.

    It means "God of Equip", a cheat that allows you to equip any item regardless of your class, level, and stats. Some editions of the cheat also enable normally locked weapon combos and allow you to select greyed-out options in menus.

    Thank you, I know what god of equip does but this confused me "goe item pmt file would be way better than a pmt file with combo unlocks and tech boosts ..."
    But still a trainer would be better than a "goe pmt" which needs 800+ entries modified when it might not even be used by all the players.

    I won't be releasing that feature but, funny thing I made a pmt editor with live editing capabilities (again with Tofuman's help :eek:), adding items doesn't work live tho. :oops:

    Perfected runs, builds testing, skin testing.
    All of that on an account that can't interact with normal gameplay of other players.

    Sounds like a good and solid change.
    Keep up the good work

    How about a command that sets rare enemy spawn rate to 100%?

    You can't do 100% since there is a limit of 16 rare enemies per game hardcoded into PSO. (The packet that is sent when you make or join the game only has that amount of space available for monster IDs...) But certainly I could make a comma d to set a rate.

    Just want to see what a rare monster looks like whenever you want? Lol.

    Also that limit only applies to free mode games. You could, modify a quest as its sent to have all monsters have their skin flag set to the rare variation.

    Regarding pmts. As the server loads the pmt its possible we could make a copy of the pmt buffer then loop through and set all equip flags to allow everyone to equip. Which could be sent to sandbox users. That would save the trouble of maintaining 2 pmts

    What will happen when there already are 16 rare enemies in game? Will the server only spawn the normal versions until there is room for more?

    No I just think that Sandboxmode is already so much over the top with all the items you can create, that this could be a nice addition. Kinda like the /redbox counterpart with monsters.

    You'll just get 16 rare enemies. The server won't generate anymore and those enemies will likely be in Forest 1/2, Temple 1/2 and Crater. That's it.

    But if they die the buffer gets cleaned up???

    This is great, thanks for the work and innovation here.
    Just wondering would it be allowed or possible to have a trainer style tool or function that can place character or camera anywhere in the level?
    I always wanted to get some widescreen distant overhead and far reaching screenshots of the levels overview
    like seen here -
    [​IMG]

    but never bothered to set up my own teth server and workout location pointers and controls ect

    it kinda fits with the theme of sandbox... right?

    would it be ok to find some old location warp hacks, mod them for ephinea and use them in sandbox mode to get some cool screenshots?

    I guess the warpme command is set to the beginning of each area at present?

    I have no idea how the camera control works nor how this SS was taken but to have more like it would be great.

    I had a command in my proxy before to set your location by hand. I could add something like that for sandbox too.

    Try's made a real nice app which allowed you to free roam with the camera in pso. The player stayed in place though. But was great for screenshots. When he re-emerges ill see if he wants to publicly release it.
