Nexus Upgraded!

NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 661 Achaean staff
(For those of you who have not caught up with Announce news in game: today we're moving to Nexus version 2.8!

New Features

- We've added a new client skin called 'Minimal'. You can switch to it in the settings window, in the first (Display) tab!

- You now disable/enable reflexes with the checkbox above the reflex itself.

- The checkboxes in the reflex list are now used to create packages. To create a package, check off the settings you want and then click 'Create Package'. This file is saved as a .nxs file and can imported into other characters settings. You can read more about packages here: http://nexus.ironrealms.com/Reflex_Packages

- You can also add settings to an existing package by following the directions above and click 'Add to Package' instead of Export.

- Inventory and room content list display has been improved.

- A new simplified scripting option to send desktop notifications to your computer has been added.

- A new simplified scripting option to trigger sound files is in there.

- A new simplified scripting option to trigger clickable links now exists.

- If you lose connection or logout the text in the main output window is retained when re-logging in with the same character, unless you refresh your browser in the meantime.

- You can now scroll your main output window with Shift + Up/Down.

- We have improved the Pageup/Pagedown functionality.

- F-keys can be turned off in settings.

- For games with wilderness maps, the font size will now match the main output window, which you set in the Settings window in the Display tab.

- If your connection fails, you'll now get a pop-up to indicate that.

- We improved the reflexes settings page element heights to work with a wider range of monitor display settings.

- We have added send_GMCP to the API.

- Multiple interface changes in order to improve display at all resolutions.

- You can now turn off the music entirely in the Settings while still retaining any other sound effects.

Nexus Bug Fixes

- Fixed a problem with HTML tags being interpreted in the reflexes list.

- Fixed a timing issue with the calling of functions.

- Logging will now include gagged lines, and will not log communication twice.

As always, if you encounter any problems file a BUG or report via the FEEDBACK tab in  your client settings.

    Sweet! More options for logging in is awesome, in my opinion... and improvement is always awesome too. :-D

    Go to sleep.

    Wake up to new Nexus.

    This is a good day. Thanks @Nicola for the effort put into this.  I've been using nexus simply due to it being what I started on and #MyAesthetic.

    @Frederich I'll pass your words onto the Nexus development team! (While they fix mine.)

    Hey, really enjoying nexus! As my first MUD and a relatively new player, the simplified scripting options are really helpful! I appreciate the examples you keep adding to show how to use it all properly, it's really helpful to someone who is brand new to coding. Thank you!

    To go off what Mishack said, I appreciate Nexus because I refuse to ever use anything other than a Chromebook again.

    And Nexus is super pretty.

    Love Nexus myself, it suits my speed and involvement with Achaea these days :D

    However, I lost all my settings and reflexes after the most recent update; I have used ISSUE ME to address the problem but I've not heard anything back yet (10/25).

    I do not know how wide-spread this problem is, but I know of three other people for whom this issue also occurred (losing their settings/reflexes in Nexus).

    Any tips or pointers @Nicola, @Makarios, and friends?


  • NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 661 Achaean staff
    @Hyperlith ; You'll be best off using the feedback function in the Nexus client itself, the dev team monitors this closely as Makarios and I have little to do with the actual development and functions of the client.

    Anyone else finding that the music/sound doesn't work?

    Yup. I didn't realize there was sound at all.

    Even if I manually adjust the volume with a script, which seems to unmute the icon at least, it's still not playing.  I might get bored someday and look for the audio files (which i suspect may be missing or removed), or peek through the functions for some kind of special muting call that is overriding the volume somehow.  Hopefully before that, though, @tecton fills us in.

    Oh wow this is awesome.  So that script actually did work, i just had to open in a new tab.  My music is finally playing!

    Just slap:


    Into your onLoad function.

    @Valaria, @Kronimyr, @Van

    @tecton I'm not sure why.  Might be the var volume = false on line 154 in the sounds.js but I honestly didn't look real hard since my dirty override seems to be working.
