[Game] Inside The Box [insidethebox]

by sofar » Post

It's been a long time coming, but, as of now, Inside The Box is Open Source!

All documentation is kept in the github project. This thread is a place to discuss the game code, not to discuss the server. For that purpose, please visit The ITB Server Thread instead.

For credits, please visit the official server. Many, many, many thanks to Nore for making this. I've taken too long to finish open sourcing this.

Description: puzzle game. Create and share puzzle boxes (mazes) with other players.

Requirements

- minetest 0.4.16. 0.4.17 and 0.4.17.1 are untested atm
- lsqlite3

Network and disk space requirements of this game are minimal. The Official ITB server uses a map that is ~300MB and total disk space usage is under 1gb.

You may need to additionally deploy modules to maintain and operate the server. These are not maintained as part of the ITB tree and are maintained elsewhere.

That is great! Personally, I’ll have a lot of fun learning from this code.

I've added some assert()s to hopefully better explain this here, instead of a cryptic lua stack trace.

This is a huge amount of work, thanks a lot for making it OSS !
I really hope that people will contribute and make this game even better.

(btw : hopefully, i'll finish my curent box on ITB server, a promise is a promise)

Do I need a special version of lsqlite3?

Because that alone doesn't work:

Check that your `lsqlite3.so` file (I'm assuming you use linux) is in the listed paths above. If it isn't, minetest will likely not find it. From the error message above, it looks like it simply can't be found.

I just copied lsqlite3.so to the working directory of Minetest, but that didn't help either:

I used luarocks to build/install mine. Note that if you're building minetest with luajit, or the non luajit version, you probably want to manually build it, because MT embeds lua and it may not know anything about how or where arch builds lua, since that's separate. From your error message, it may just be that you've got a version built for lua 5.3, but MT uses 5.1, and they are not compatible.

maybe make a separate thread for this problem? Others will appreciate that most likely, there are quite a few mods that depend on lslqite3.

I had the same issue with mods not loading.

I had to copy the localmusic folder from the music mod to a worldmods folder in the world directory.

This fixed the issue in 0.4.17.1 :)

I'll add an `assert` for that as well. Yes, this is required. It helps to keep music tracks out of git and allows the server operator to have custom per-server music.

euh, the assert is already in place and should show a clear message.

Maybe Tumeninodes cut off the most important error message from his logs? :P

All is well now
Fixes for 5.0 as well... I'm going in

i think its worth pointing out in the instructions that lsqlite3 needs sqlite3, and for those that install it from the repos, they will need to install the devel version that comes with the header file. for me it was libsqlite3-dev. only then i was able to luarocks install lsqlite3

Maybe. In general in OSS projects you post direct dependencies, and not the indirect ones. Otherwise you'd be busy a while with some projects :).

Maybe. In general in OSS projects you post direct dependencies, and not the indirect ones. Otherwise you'd be busy a while with some projects :).
Also indirect dependencies can change, or differ between different distributions (the package names of direct dependencies can differ as well but usually they're similar enough that someone can figure out the correct packages).

Hi Jackknife,

Inside the Box is designed to be a community project. The boxes that are available to play on the multiplayer server are not bundled with the game itself. Now with that out of the way...

Have you done what Gael-de-Sailly suggested in the other thread regarding adding 'db' to secure.trusted_mods? If you're still getting errors after that, please list the errors here and explain what steps you took to install the game. As he stated, the instructions are in the readme (which he linked) and it's not trivial to set up.

Thanks but I took one look at all the complicated stuff to do to get it running and its beyond me.
I’m not a programmer, I’v been able to figure out stuff to make a small mod but I had to start with code that was already made up.
This is too confusing for me.
