BYOND Hosting / Shell Server

by Xirre
A shell server (hosting service) for all of BYOND to use!
I think this was resolved. I don't hear of problems of this anymore.
BYOND Version:499
Operating System:Windows 7 Pro
Web Browser:Chrome 27.0.1453.94
Applies to:Dream Seeker
Status: Resolved (0.3.3)

This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary: So, I suddenly was hosting TQ, but the text from shell server came in when I was playing it.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem: go onto shell server, go to meh tq server find bugs.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:

Expected Results: the text was not there.

Actual Results: the text from shell server was there.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? some times
In other games? havent tested
In other user accounts? havent tested
On other computers? havent tested

When does the problem NOT occur? on randoms.

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)

Workarounds: no idea.

Alright. So this is what happened. Shell Server is originally text-based. Because of that, transitioning from Shell Server to a image-based game does not automatically convert DreamSeeker's view. We're working on actually using the src << link(byond://ip_address:port) code to open a NEW and separate DreamSeeker so that way it will not be a problem for you to both stay on Shell Server and have your image-based game loaded properly. The only workaround is if you

1. Are on a game with default skins/no skins loaded on it at all(At the top I think if you click View and Turn on then back off Text-view then it should show the image)

2. Are on a game with skins that include the menu ability to toggle the view type of the game.

3. Find a way to enter a command in the command line to change the view (If you find this command, because I can't remember what it is, let us know. We can probably use this to fix some stuff up. Commands that can do this are usually starting with a "." such as .reconnect .configure_delay .click and others.)
Oh, and also. Thanks for being the first bug reporter. :) Gives me something to work on lol.
Ya know Xirre, that might actually help. Use winset to change the games map(it exists, just isn't displayed) to icon mode and then that problem should be eliminated.

A command to do so would be, when they log in.


Command to use in dream-seeker: .winset(";") <-- Works on default skin. If skin is not default map control will have to be specified.
And yet.. we solved it another way. We actually got it to open in a new window. Thanks to you, Toby. Lol.
Thank you.
Did you get my page btw?
