Dead Souls Support / Repeated crashes ds 3.8
« on: August 08, 2013, 01:17:03 pm »
This is a fresh install of DS 3.8. I havent made any changes to the lib itself or even touched driver etc.

Code: [Select]

0:OBJ(/secure/sefun/sefun), file: /secure/sefun/sefun.c, fun: get_stack,
origin: simul
1:OBJ(/secure/daemon/master), file: /secure/daemon/master.c, fun: crash,
origin: driver
2:OBJ(/secure/sefun/sefun), file: /secure/sefun/sefun.c, fun: CATCH, origin:
3:OBJ(/secure/sefun/sefun), file: /secure/sefun/sefun.c, fun: socket_names,
origin: simul
4:OBJ(/secure/daemon/instances), file: /secure/daemon/instances.c, fun:
CheckConnections, origin: local
5:OBJ(/secure/daemon/instances), file: /secure/daemon/instances.c, fun:
heart_beat, origin: driver
({ OBJ(/secure/sefun/sefun), OBJ(/secure/daemon/instances) })

This is a repeated thing, and apparently has happened 4 or 5 times in the last couple of days. I'm not familiar enough with the files referenced to even begin to start trouble shooting this. Any ideas?

General / Cheap but solid mud hosting vps
« on: January 17, 2013, 03:45:23 pm »
I just wanted to let you guys know, OrbitServers is now officially live. We are now offering vps packages starting as low as 5.95 per month. These vps come standard with CentOS 5 but can be changed to CentOS 6, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, or suse.
This is a XEN VPS setup, hosted on quality hardware. The cheapest package, 5.95 per month comes with 1g/b ram, 1g/b burst ram, 25 gb disk space, 500 g/b bandwidth, and 2 cores. These vps are located on a well built E3-1240v2 (3.40Ghz) - - 16GB DDR3 RAM machine.

If you have any questions let me know or visit

General / Apology

I just wanted to extend an apology for anything my ignorance might have screwed up and for ticking crat off. Ive killed the server and it shouldnt be a problem any longer.

Dead Souls Support / newb question. simple check in attack.c?
« on: May 15, 2010, 10:11:19 pm »
ok. I am basically doing something that is not entirely necessary, solely for the experience of working with the lib.

I know with ds you can set pk on off as you please etc. What I would like to happen is that when a player or creator attacks an immortal, be it admin or creator, they get a message to the effect of "Attacking an immortal is a bad idea." What I came up with was putting an
 "if(creatorp etc etc...
return 'attacking an immortal..'

am i thinking along the right lines here?
if not could someone point me towards the right path?

General / map app?
« on: May 21, 2008, 06:56:21 am »
I was wondering if anyone knew of somewhere i could pick up a simple application to create maps. I want to create some basic maps of my "world" so that my creators can have a visual of where their domain is in this world...also since region will play a part in climate, what races exist in a given domain , mechanics type stuff.

I don't need anything extra fancy

Promotions / Looking for very experienced coder for Ancient Mystique
« on: April 09, 2007, 10:18:38 am »
Ancient Mystique is the mud i started basically as a learning grounds for me with the dead souls lib. It has essentially served its purpose. I have gained a bit of experience working directly with ds, and will continue to do so. However, it is time that it becomes something more. What I am looking for is an experienced coder who is also Head admin material, who has a concept that they have for whatever reason been unable to put into action. This person will take over the mud, be able to hire new creators, modify the lib to suit the purpose of making it his own.

I just find it a shame that a perfectly good mud with a perfectly good stock lib, that has an extremely fast host, and plenty of space, is sitting there with only my inept attempts at lib modification. Essentially this person will be 51/49 partner with me...and only that because i have taken care of the hosting etc.

So if you have the necessary lpc skills and are dying to get your concept and theme put into action, please email me at

If you have any questions about the host, about what rights you will have as , essentially, head admin, about me in general, etc please feel free to ask.     or login to port 6699
if im not there then feel free to email me those questions at the email address above or here. i constantly check these forums, etc....
