View Full Version : Characters not updating, invisible items

I'm having some issues having used the hacked install to get this mod on my 3.6.7 boards, I'm wondering if anyone has any insight:

A) Characters are tending to not update when they level. This isn't always fixed with a post, it frequently requires a rebuild of users. I could do that on a cron theoretically but not when my (new boards) get the proper number of users back, at least not except during off-peak-hours. Frustrating!

B) I bought an item. It never showed up in my items. Now I want to buy it again and I can't because it says I already have it. No clue what to do about this but I know we are going for fine itemization so having stuff like this pop up is bad. This was a spell by the way, and yes I had one equipped at the time.

I know the author is away, hopefully he either comes back to this or hands it over officially to someone else. In the meantime anyone who knows how to fix problems with this sucker, we need to help eachother out. I don't want to make the switch to RPG Inferno, but if I can't get this thing working right I'm going to have to =\

It really sucks because this mod takes a good deal of work to configure right, but it's fun work and it's hard to get into it if you're not sure you're going to keep it.

I'd like to add that I've now tried twice to reset my character and it's keeping my stats.

And additionally a user rebuild won't fix it......sigh......

More info, I tried resetting the RPG and found this little baby:

Database error in vBulletin 3.6.7:

Invalid SQL:

UPDATE `vbrpg_user`
SET `elementid` = '1';

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'elementid' in 'field list'

Makes sense since I haven't actually seen bloody elements in use, which was a mystery.
