Here's why I don't answer your questions in a private thread

Hi, You asked me a question about some of my open source work. That's great. I appreciate the interest and your desire to learn something about something I made in the past or something that I may still be working on, even today. But, I will not answer your question. This text is meant for you to un...

Re: How to create similar stuff for minetest?

If you are willing to greatly reduce the complexity, you can make something like this work in a node:

Re: How do I set up a media server?

I explicitly said I didn't want to use your tool. The current manuals for mtmediasrv talk about nginx and not lighthttpd, so I was assuming you didn't want to switch from lighthttpd to nginx, which isn't a bad choice, but this fcgi daemon should also work under lighthttpd. I didn't know whether you...

Re: How do I set up a media server?

If you get this to work with lighthttpd, which shouldn't be too difficult, we can add the needed docs to mtmediasrv's readme.md.

You can run mtmediasrv under lighthttpd as well with modfastcgi.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Anyway, have fun crunching and analyzing your data, but I fear your efforts will lead to nowhere because the data might not carry much value in the first place. Garbage in, garbage out. :-P Some of the icons are getting used a lot, so there already is data on which ones are useful and which ones ar...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

The idea as such is tempting. I'm just afraid that it doesn't really work that way. We've had over 3000+ category icons assigned to boxes already. I'm going to look a the data and see which icons work well and which ones don't, and then we can see about adjusting or replacing the ones that aren't g...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

The category teleporters are now active! Each teleporter will dynamically take you to boxes that have been categorized by the icon by sufficient players, and then ranked before inclusion. The teleporters currently take you to boxes that are unplayed only. I'll add something later for players who hav...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

After 2 days of reading Sqlite3 docs, I managed to complete the backend side of the category icon code! So, hopefully in the next few days I can make the in-game stuff work.

Re: Server log is flooded with Pathfinder warnings

Possible solutions:

- Patch minetest to omit the message (since it's inactionable)
- Patch the mod to search for paths in a shorter area only

Re: How to check real lag of server?

The value you see in /status is max_lag which is a sliding average meaning it goes down slowly after 1 lag spike. Main problem - server show 'fake lag' with /status even when i havent any lags or it doesnt show lags when server has huge lags. As a player, you should just look at RTT . You have litt...

Re: More quality videos of Minetest!

Re: [Mod] Exchange stuff between servers [Interkom]

I'm not sure of how everything works in your system but you might be able to create a 'status file' for each server in the folder and set it up so that before a server writes anything it checks the other server's status files. If none of the other servers is writing have it set the contents of its ...

Re: [Mod] Exchange stuff between servers [Interkom]

My initial thoughts on this mod are to secure the wire protocol and not use files as they are obviously prone to locking issues (as lua does none) and 2 servers could write the same file at the same time. A better implementation would be to use sockets to do all the communication, where each server ...
