Default Gwbbcode

We know that someone took over gwbbcode and we know its been left stagnant and im hoping to get gwbbcode back into the public domain etc.
I contacted the original creator via email asking if he still had a copy of the script he used to make the skill updates after each update but sadly he has no copy nor does he wish to work on a new script.
So what im asking is - is there anyone who would be willing and able to write a php script to get the skill description and changes and convert it to the format used in the skill files of gwbbcode.
Also if theres anyone else interested in helping - be it testers checking the skills are correctly described etc just give me a pm.
Gwbbcode was a great program which is sadly missed and its a shame to let it suffer.
Who knows - we may even be able to get gwbbcode back on guru

Ok skill updates have been done and can be downloaded at http://gwbbcode.spirits-realm.co.uk/...ic.php?f=7&t=8
Any errors please post on the forum and i can get working on them - there may be a few errors so dont be surprised.
Will now start work on an updated version of gwbbcode

I Guess it should be possible to create a userpage on wiki that will list all the skill data in a single page. At least that's better than accessing 1300+ pages I guess. Even better if it did a last update check and only listed skills that have been updated in last 30 days.

from what i gather - the original creator of gwbbcode had a php script that went thru the update pages when needed and it got the needed info .The script doesnt need to examine every page for it - as far as i recall after anet did a skill change the script only checked the pages set - or it may be manual activated.
Btw wiki has its own update page which covers any updates done that month as well as dev notes when released.

If a working version with reliable update scripting became available,I would quite literally explode.

(making sure it was installed here first though)

Does anyone have any experience they can share of integrating GWBBcode with MediaWiki based wiki's? I know PvXWiki use the GWBBCode databases but it looks as though they wrote their own frontend. There's also a French Guild that have it working but my French is so darned rusty....

I can do basic HTML/PHP hacking - I just need someone to give me a "walk through" of what to do....

When gwshack closed sadly all of the info on their forums was lost which means bad things for most of us especially all the threads on incorporating gwbbcode into many web platforms.

I would love to have an updated version.

The latest version I can find is: http://www.teamlove.us/kisu/download/gwbbcode.zip

Off the teamquitter thread.

I really want to get this working with SMF though.

Ive seen that a month or 2 ago but with a glance at a few files i can tell the actual program hasnt been edited - it still has the coding on installing to make the program contact gwbbshack ( a bug someone listed on gwbbcodes page on google code ).
Skill updates i have no idea atm where they got up to without trawling thru the code.

A big major problem is there is no support for it now - lui quit on gwbbcode almost a yr or 2 years ago and the website closed which means any old info on installation on diff forums was lost.I managed to contact lui i think a few months after it closed asking if he still had the coding to get any skill updates off wiki etc and sadly he said all the old coding and wiki parsing was deleted / or not on his current machine.

I would still like to get gwbbcode running again but im weighing the chances as i would need to delve into its coding ( im not a coder but i know i did managed some edits in the past ) and change the email problem but i will also have to overhaul the skill database and probably manually add in skill changes - which sadly is a LOT of work and a major headache if you dont know exactly what you are doing.Also there wont be any actual support for it.

Im making no promises but if i do delve into it i will keep the community updated and maybe ppl with the know how can help with support

If you needed any help with the skill updates I would definitely be down for helping you update. Also if you need any testing I would help out as much as I can.

EDIT: Also, about the version I posted. I was able to install that version perfectly with my phpBB forum, but only that version, the rest were bugged. As for the skill updates, I know they have the dervish update in there, however, PvE shadow form was still at 10e 60 recharge.

is anyone still trying to get this to work?
My last zip file was 1.8.3, and when trying to install on my phpbb3 forum, I get this:

Quote:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '"', expecting ')' in /.../gwbbcode/install.php on line 168
I'd just like to get this to work again, even if it's not 100% up-to-date.

the line in question is:

Code:
else {
//TODO: move this hash db creation part to a packaging script
   $hashes = get_hashes();
   $hashes_php = "<?php return Array(\n";
   foreach ($hashes as $name => $content) {
      $hashes_php .= "'$name'=>'$content',\n";
   }
   $hashes_php .= ");?>";
   //Save
   if ($f = @fopen(HASHES_PATH, 'wb')) {
      $res = @fwrite($f, $hashes_php);
      @fclose($f);
      die("Hashes saved in ".HASHES_PATH);
   }
}
Maybe the ( before the (/n" isn't supposed to be there, or maybe it should read (/n)"

At a quick glance - the (/n u speak of is the start of a piece of code as it runs to $hashes_php .= ");?>"; .
im not an expert at php but from what i recall is for every ( there has to be at end ) - in other words for every ( there has to be ) at end and often you have to count them both to see which missing or in wrong place.
the projects a bit behind due to things in real life but im soon hoping to get back to redoing the skills.I will have to also redo the 2 files that hold the skills as well as a file that gives each skill an id - with rooting thru the old skills files i noticed some duplicates and i would like to get everything organised which will help skill updates.

Well, it's good to hear that someone's picking up the project. thanks!

And I understand your explanation, but then why do I get the error... It's confusing, and making it impossible to install the code.

I'll just wait untill you've finished your version, and try that then good luck!

Quick question here as laptop im using is slow as hell for internet - phpbb is it still free ?
I may have to get a copy if free just to see if theres any problems when i test.
This is also a list of what im going to try and do-
1. sort installation code - removal of the routine that trys to connect to gwshack and causes installation to stop
2. sort and recode both skills database files and add any skill changes
3. sort and recode the arrays
4. try and add exhaustion for ele skills
5. get tested then have a mental breakdown :P

ok im mystified - i just installed phpbb3 and used the file from http://code.google.com/p/gwbbcode/ and it worked with no errors .
The only thing i can think of ( and its been many years since i used phpbb ) is if you have any mods installed and one of them is conflicting.
The only thing i suggest doing is if possible setup another phpbb3 forum and download a fresh copy of the code from that link.The new forum acts as a testsite and if it installs fine ( remember its a virgin start with no mods/addons ) slowly add your mods and you should be able to find the conflict.
Im working atm on a ravennuke ( its related to phpnuke ) and phpbb3 sites and when i can decide which to use - we`ll have a base forum to work on things , i dont want guru site to be bogged down with questions relating to gwbbcode.
I`ll give more details as i progress and i`ll be after some testers at that time.

Hi,

I'm making a forum, on which I'm trying to install gwbbcode, but I don't know how to do so.

Every time I open the install.php or the directory, it shows me a page with the software description and that's it. (as shown below)

****************** * gwBBCode 1.8.3 * ****************** by pikiou / Liu Pi This program is free software under GNU GPL. All images, skill names and descriptions are (C) ArenaNet.

I should have a forum ( undecided if phpbb3 or phpnuke lol ) which i`ll use to test and hopefully update gwbbcode but for the moment im sidetracked by the gw event - hopefully that site will be able to help where possible with questions - i dont want to bog down guru ).What forum are you using out of interest - also you need to read the instructions on installation as you need webhosting that allows files to be uploaded and abaility to modify code - not all free webhosts ( forum providers ) allow uploading of files as they like you to be stuck with their forums.

Yup that's exactly what I got as well, but that was due to the site trying to access gwshack.us, so I edited out everything related to the site from the install.php and it still didn't work.

Yes, this is where I got one of the two copies I got.

The other copy I got it from a french site (http://www.emoakina.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1095) and that one was updated after February this year. I more or less understand French and it allows me to install the English version of the code. This one goes into the setup but when I hit the finishing step it stops after 2%. I'm going to be posting in their forum soon.

I'm using phpBB. My host is BigHost.com, it's not free and I'm installing in a sub of a domain that I own.


However I don't know if I'm installing gwbbcode the right way. I installed phpBB3 without a problem it's up and running.

However I don't know if I need to run gwbbcode from the same directory I have phpBB3 or not. Neither do I know if I need to use the same database that I used for phpBB3 for gwbbcode or not. What can I say I'm a noob.
