Custom Guild Icon System and Item Linking to chat

Just wanted to show off 2 awesome features I added to EE in this last update:

Warning: Image heavy

! Custom Guild Icon System, instead of having image files randomly assigned like in a thread I saw, I made it so this system accept image files uploaded to the server by the players (founders of the guild)
!
!
! Item Linking to chat, most mmo players will recognize this, Shift+Leftclicking an item in your inventory will ‘link’ them to your chat, pretty useful to share item information with players (mainly trades and such)
!
!

Tell me what you guys thing  😉

Wow looks pretty cool if I say so myself. I like the idea of players uploading images to the server. I’m guessing that is so the other guild members get the same image?

I guess you could say that but there’s a little trick in it so no image is actually sent to the client at any moment (could be heavy for the packet)  😉

No image is sent to the client? Then how will the client render it? 😮 And if the packet gets too “heavy” just compress it down with Zlib.

And I like the item linked to chatbox. But what I can’t figure out is how do you figure out whether you’re hovering over a linked item with an RTB.

no image is sent and ‘saved’ client-side, all nedded image data is sent to the client and stored in a record, easy

Oh, it’s held in memory. Why not just save it and do a hashcheck on login with a record-table? If there is a file that isn’t there in the list then remove it. If the Hash is wrong then remove it. Give the record to the player ever time they log-in compressed down and send them the files they request in a big packet all compressed down again…

Speaking over hovering items in chat, I need to add this to Nin Online. You reminded me. There’s so many little features like that, it is really a lot of work to add them all.

I was playing your game today and I was quite inspired. I added the stats to my item descriptions and I learned a lot from your tutorial. These are some really cool features, you’re quite the programmer.
