Detailed Description

This file contains various #defines that select various options.

Some may not be desirable, and some just may not work.

There are some options that are not selectable in this file which may not always be undesirable. An example would be certain treasures that you may not want to have available. To remove the activation code would make these items worthless - instead remove these from the treasure file. Some things to look for are:

prepare_weapon, improve_*: Allow characters to enchant their own weapons ench_armour: Allow characters to enchant their armor.

In theory, most of the values here should just be defaults, and everything here should just be selectable by different run time flags However, for some things, that would just be too messy.

#define AUTOSAVE   5000

How often (in seconds) the player is saved if he drops things.

If it is set to 0, the player will be saved for every item he drops. Otherwise, if the player drops and item, and the last time he was saved due to item drop is longer the SAVE_INTERVAL seconds, he is then saved. Depending on your playing environment, you may want to set this to a higher value, so that you are not spending too much time saving the characters. This option should now work (Crossfire 0.90.5) AUTOSAVE saves the player every AUTOSAVE ticks. A value of 5000 with MAX_TIME set at 120,000 means that the player will be saved every 10 minutes. Some effort should probably be made to spread out these saves, but that might be more effort than it is worth (Depending on the spacing, if enough players log on, the spacing may not be large enough to save all of them.) As it is now, it will just set the base tick of when they log on, which should keep the saves pretty well spread out (in a fairly random fashion.)

CS_LOGSTATS will cause the server to log various usage stats (number of connections, amount of data sent, amount of data received, and so on.) This can be very useful if you are trying to measure server/bandwidth usage.

It will periodially dump out information which contains usage stats for the last X amount of time. CS_LOGTIME is how often it will print out stats.

#define LOGFILE   "/var/log/crossfire/logfile"

LOGFILE specifies which file to log to when playing with the -daemon option.

Definition at line 381 of file config.h.

#define MANY_CORES

This option creates more core files.

In some areas, there are certain checks done to try and make the program more stable (ie, check parameter for null, return if it is). These checks are being done for things that should not happen (ie, being supplied a null parameter). What MANY_CORES does, is if one of these checks is true, it will dump core at that time, allowing for fairly easy tracking down of the problem. Better to fix problems than create thousands of checks.

Definition at line 210 of file config.h.

#define MAP_CLIENT_X   25

This determines the maximum map size the client can request (and thus what the server will send to the client.

Client can still request a smaller map size (for bandwidth reasons or display size of whatever else).

The larger this number, the more cpu time and memory the server will need to spend to figure this out in addition to bandwidth needs. The server cpu time should be pretty trivial.

There may be reasons to keep it smaller for the 'classic' crossfire experience which was 11x11. Big maps will likely make the same at least somewhat easier, but client will need to worry about lag more.

I put support in for non square map updates in the define, but there very well might be things that break horribly if this is used. I figure it is easier to fix that if needed than go back at the future and have to redo a lot of stuff to support rectangular maps at that point.

Default time to reset.

Definition at line 428 of file config.h.

Referenced by set_map_reset_time().

#define MAP_MAXRESET   7200

MAP_MAXRESET is the maximum time a map can have before being reset.

It will override the time value set in the map, if that time is longer than MAP_MAXRESET. This value is in seconds. If you are low on space on the TMPDIR device, set this value to somethign small. The default value in the map object is MAP_DEFAULTRESET (given in seconds.) I personally like 1 hour myself, for solo play. It is long enough that maps won't be resetting as a solve a quest, but short enough that some maps (like shops and inns) will be reset during the time I play. Comment out MAP_MAXRESET time if you always want to use the value in the map archetype.Maximum time to reset.

Definition at line 426 of file config.h.

Referenced by read_map_log(), and set_map_reset_time().

#define MAP_MAXTIMEOUT   1000

MAP_MAXTIMEOUT tells the maximum of ticks until a map is swapped out after a player has left it.

If it is set to 0, maps are swapped out the instant the last player leaves it. If you are low on memory, you should set this to 0. Note that depending on the map timeout variable, the number of objects can get quite high. This is because depending on the maps, a player could be having the objects of several maps in memory (the map he is in right now, and the ones he left recently.) Each map has it's own TIMEOUT value and value field and it is defaulted to 300

Having a nonzero value can be useful: If a player leaves a map (and thus is on a new map), and realizes they want to go back pretty quickly, the old map is still in memory, so don't need to go disk and get it.

MAP_MINTIMEOUT is used as a minimum timeout value - if the map is set to swap out in less than that many ticks, we use the MINTIMEOUT value below. If MINTIMEOUT > MAXTIMEOUT, MAXTIMEOUT will be used for all maps.How many ticks till maps are swapped out.

#define MAX_ERRORS   25

Bail out if more are received during tick.

Definition at line 572 of file config.h.

Referenced by LOG().

#define MAX_OBJECTS   100000

MAX_OBJECTS is no hard limit.

If this limit is exceeded, Crossfire will look for maps which are already scheldued for swapping, and promptly swap them out before new maps are being loaded. If playing only by yourself, this number can probably be as low as

  1. If in server mode, probably figure about 1000-2000 objects per active player (if they typically play on different maps), for some guess on how many to define. If it is too low, maps just get swapped out immediately, causing a performance hit. If it is too high, the program consumes more memory. If you have gobs of free memory, a high number might not be a bad idea. Each object is around 350 bytes right now. 25000 is about 8.5 MB

#define MAX_TIME   120000

If you feel the game is too fast or too slow, change MAX_TIME.

You can experiment with the 'speed <new_max_time>' command first. The length of a tick is MAX_TIME microseconds. During a tick, players, monsters, or items with speed 1 can do one thing.

#define MIN_PLAYER_SPEED   0.25

Definition at line 96 of file config.h.

Referenced by fix_player().

#define MOTD   "motd"

Max objects low water mark (lwm).

If defined, the map swapping strategy is a bit different: 1) We only start swapping maps if the number of objects in use is greater than MAX_OBJECTS above. 2) We keep swapping maps until there are no more maps to swap or the number of used objects drop below this low water mark value.

If this is not defined, maps are swapped out on the timeout value above, or if the number of objects used is greater than MAX_OBJECTS above.

Note: While this will prevent the pauses noticed when saving maps, there can instead be cpu performance penalties - any objects in memory get processed. So if there are 4000 objects in memory, and 1000 of them are living objects, the system will process all 1000 objects each tick. With swapping enable, maybe 600 of the objects would have gotten swapped out. This is less likely a problem with a smaller number of MAX_OBJECTS than if it is very large. Also, the pauses you do get can be worse, as if you enter a map with a lot of new objects and go above MAX_OBJECTS, it may have to swap out many maps to get below the low water mark. Turning on MEMORY_DEBUG slows down execution, but makes it easier to find memory corruption and leaks. Currently, the main thing that happens with this activated is that one malloc is done for each object - thus whatever debugging mechanism the malloc library (or other debugging tool provides, like purify), it can track this individual malloc. Default behaviour when turned off is that enough memory is malloced for a large group of objects so malloc does not need to be called as often. This should only be turned on if some form of memory debugging tool is being used - otherwise, turning this on will cause some performance hit with no useful advantage.

Define to 2 for stricter checks (known to currently break). Define to 3 for even stricter checks (known to currently break even more). If you want to have a Message Of The Day file, define MOTD to be the file with the message. If the file doesn't exist or if it is empty, no message will be displayed. (It resides in the CONFDIR directory)

Definition at line 493 of file config.h.

#define NO_EMERGENCY_SAVE

Often, emergency save fails because the memory corruption that caused the crash has trashed the characters too.

Define NO_EMERGENCY_SAVE to disable emergency saves. This actually does prevent emergency saves now (Version 0.90.5).

Definition at line 655 of file config.h.

#define NO_POLYMORPH

Polymorph as it currently stands is unbalancing, so by default we have it disabled.

It can be enabled and it works, but it can be abused in various ways.

Definition at line 252 of file config.h.

#define NOT_PERMADETH   TRUE

Definition at line 162 of file config.h.

#define OBJ_EXPAND   100

How big steps to use when expanding array.

Definition at line 574 of file config.h.

Referenced by expand_objects().

#define PERM_EXP_GAIN_RATIO   0.50f

This determine how many entries are stored in the kill log.

You can see this information with the 'party kills' command. More entries mean slower performance and more memory. IF this is not defined, then this feature is disabled. The PERM_EXP values adjust the behaviour of permenent experience. - if the setting permanent_experience_percentage is zero, these values have no meaning. The value in the settings file is the percentage of the experience that is permenent, the rest could be lost on death. When dying, the greatest amount of non-permenent exp it is possible to lose at one time is PERM_EXP_MAX_LOSS_RATIO - this is calculated as total exp - perm exp * loss ratio. The gain ratio is how much of experienced experience goes to the permanent value. This does not detract from total exp gain (ie, if you gained 100 exp, 100 would go to the skill total and 10 to the permanent value).

A few thoughts on these default value (by MSW) gain ratio is pretty much meaningless until exp has been lost, as until that poin, the value in the settings file will be used. It is also impossible for the exp to actually be reduced to the permanent exp ratio - since the loss ratio is .5, it will just get closer and closer. However, after about half a dozen hits, pretty much all the exp that can be lost has been lost, and after that, only minor loss will occur.

#define RESET_LOCATION_TIME   3600

By selecting the following, whenever a player does a backup save (with the 'save' command), the player will be saved at home (EMERGENCY_MAP_* information that is specified later).

If this is not set, the player will be saved at his present location. RESET_LOCATION_TIME is the number of seconds that must elapse before we fill return the player to his savebed location. If this is zero, this feature is disabled (player will resume where ever he was when he last logged off). If this is set to less than two hours, it will prevent players from camping out in treasure rooms. Do not comment this out - it must be set to something - if you comment this out, the program will not compile.

This will work to BACKUP_SAVE_AT_HOME at home above, but where the player where appear under what conditions is a little complicated depending on how the player exited the game. But if the elapsed time is greater than the value below, player will always get returned to savebed location location.

If you have defined SAVE_PLAYER, you might want to change this, too.

This is the access rights for the players savefiles. Given that crossfire runs in a client/server model, there should be no issue setting these to be quite restrictive (600 and 700). Before client/server, multiple people might run the executable, thus requiring that the server be setuid/setgid, and more generous permisisons needed. SAVE_MODE is permissions for the files, SAVE_DIR_MODE is permission for nay directories created.

#define SOCKETBUFSIZE   256*1024

SOCKETBUFSIZE is the size of the buffer used internally by the server for storing backlogged messages for the client.

This is not operating system buffers or the like. This amount is used per connection (client). This buffer is in addition to OS buffers, so it may not need to be very large. When the OS buffer and this buffer is exhausted, the server will drop the client connection for falling too far behind. So if you have very slow client connections, a larger value may be warranted.

#define TMPDIR   "/tmp"

Your tmp-directory should be large enough to hold the uncompressed map-files for all who are playing.

It ought to be locally mounted, since the function used to generate unique temporary filenames isn't guaranteed to work over NFS or AFS On the other hand, if you know that only one crossfire server will be running using this temporary directory, it is likely to be safe to use something that is NFS mounted (but performance may suffer as NFS is slower than local disk)

#define UNIQUE_DIR   "unique-items"

This is placed into the 'lib' directory. Changing this will cause any old unique items file not to be used.

#define WATCHDOG

WATCHDOG lets sends datagrams to port 13325 on localhost in (more-or-less) regular intervals, so an external watchdog program can kill the server if it hangs (for whatever reason).

It shouldn't hurt anyone if this is defined but you don't have an watchdog program.
