there are 10 types of people who understand binary, those who do and those who dont. (have fun with that one bonbon)

500k?

yeah i spent about 800k just doing the testing for this update.
7  Feedback Terminal / "Bugs" and Problems / Re: Research Estimator...Wrong? on: April 29, 2010, 08:21:07 PM
So how many tasks MUST i have done? 8D
Are you saying i wasted EVEN MORE of my HPD than i thought? laugh shifty

alpha - i did notice that 270x32 = v15.323839 - could you of used more hours than you thought ? im thinking maybe you typed in 270 and after getting a discount of say 62% ended up with 168 hours runtime ?
8  Feedback Terminal / Suggestions / Re: Newbie Protection on: April 29, 2010, 04:52:08 PM
I was actually going to suggest adding the check to the leaderboard.  He's already doing the Power calculation once an hour.  I don't think giving them an extra hour after passing 200k makes much a difference.

Once an hour, as the leader board is calculated then update the players to 'PVP' if they pass the 200k barrier.  If they are already PVP don't change them.

Then would be rather simple and since it's only updating one-way to PVP nothing would happen if they dropped below 200k.



that would add another call to the db - i assume the power values are held in a seperate table to the user and server tables

the less lookups per page the better

It was!
I started 50 tasks
And cancelled 18 of them, i counted the logs 8D

Unless i didnt start at 0.1?
Cant you make this into a little calculator exe along with overloadhardware use estimation ;)

emi has the final codes and will implement them as and when he gets around to it

ftr - i did a 8.8  @ 168 x 32 and that came to 14.535776 so you would of needed at least v9 as a starting block
10  Feedback Terminal / Suggestions / Re: Newbie Protection on: April 29, 2010, 01:54:16 PM
We all know who the brains behind this operation is ;)

its emi and im sure emi will find a way - i just offer advice - which he is free to ignore :P
11  Feedback Terminal / "Bugs" and Problems / Re: Research Estimator...Wrong? on: April 29, 2010, 01:52:52 PM
Then how the feck did i end up with v15? C:

the only explainations i came across were :-

you were drunk

it wasn't 168x32

maybe one of your abilities improves to level of research rather than time of research - although unsure if any ability like that exists
12  Feedback Terminal / Suggestions / Re: Newbie Protection on: April 29, 2010, 12:23:15 PM
I'm going to study the suggestion.

It's usually more difficult to balance a player power restriction protection system then the current server by server, because you would have to account for the attacks of a player in protection.

An option would be to remove protection completely, as since high players can not accept missions on public servers when they are over 1 million and newbie players don't pose a good target for adware virii as they did in the past, the protection is kind of outdated...



emi why not just add a boolean to the user table - once they get a mission against them or any other thing like hitting 200,000 power etc they get flagged - firstly check the flag if that fails revert back to the old check server method
13  Feedback Terminal / "Bugs" and Problems / Re: Research Estimator...Wrong? on: April 28, 2010, 04:13:02 PM
emi - i converted the old code into the new one however i'm getting results below what alpha suggests

based on researching a v0.1 for 168 hours x 32 processes - can you see where the old formula is going wrong ?

1: v1.0996
2: v2.015234
3: v2.853954
4: v3.622222
5: v4.325955

12: v7.847663
13: v8.196459
14: v8.515956
15: v8.808616
16: v9.076692
17: v9.32225
18: v9.547181

30: v11.626824
31: v11.794824
32: v11.962824

alpha says he ended up with a V 15.3228


for those breaking into my server for the next 76 hours - please leave this research alone.

first set of testing completed

steps 1 - 9 all completed exactly as predicted ( didnt have hardware for all 32 to be processed singularly )

doing second test to see if all 32x168 = v11 or v15

15  Feedback Terminal / "Bugs" and Problems / Re: Random Password Changes? on: April 24, 2010, 10:38:15 AM
I have about 4 passwords at different security levels
But it takes me a massive amount of attempts to get it right on sites that are like, you must have one number, one lowercase, one uppercase and be at least 8 digits long

P.I.M.A

This is exactly how my company is.  must be eight digits long, must have one number, one character and one SPECIAL CHARACTER!

as per last post
