    [Guide] Explaination of Ascent Files: Ascent.conf

    Hello MMOwned

    I will try explain the config files from the Ascent Emulator (:

    This is mostly for the noobs, that just can't get into it - and just whine about: "Omg it just closes what do I do omg wtflux z0omFg must suicide".

    I will try explain:
    Ascent.conf - This guide
    Logonserver.conf - Coming Soon
    Realms.conf - Coming Soon
    Voicechat.conf - Coming Soon

    =================================
    Ascent.conf
    Main settings of the Emulator

    Pt.1: Database
    Pt.2: Listen Config
    Pt.3: Log Level Setup
    Pt.4: Server Settings


    Pt.1: Database
    Code:
    #   Database.Host      - The hostname that the database is located on
    #   Database.Username  - The username used for the mysql connection
    #   Database.Password  - The password used for the mysql connection
    #   Database.Name      - The database name
    #   Database.Port      - Port that MySQL listens on. Usually 3306.
    #   Database.Type      - Client to use. 1 = MySQL, 2 = PostgreSQL, 3 = Oracle 10g
    Taken directly from the Ascent.conf.



    Database.Host: If you're running a private server for your self, this should be 127.0.0.1, or localhost.
    Your "database" is the SQL you execute in Navicat..

    Database.Username: Just type in "root". Root = Your computer's deepest thing.

    Database.Password: You choose this password when you setup MySQL / PostgreSQL / Oracle 10g. [More info Here]

    Database.Name: Will mostly be "world" or something like that. It's the name of the SQL you execute.

    Database.Port: You choose this on the MySQL Setup. Common: 3306.
    Others: 3307, 3308, 3309.

    Database.Type: MySQL is the most used in every single repack - [Read More] -- Recommended

    PostgreSQL is another SQL Setup - [Read More] -- Not recommended

    Oracle 10g is a third option for SQL Setup - [Read More] -- Not recommended


    Example of all this:
    Code:
    <WorldDatabase Hostname = "localhost" Username = "root" Password = "random" Name = "world" Port = "3306" Type = "1">
    <CharacterDatabase Hostname = "localhost" Username = "root" Password = "random" Name = "logon" Port = "3306" Type = "1">

    =================================

    Pt.2: Listen Config


    Code:
    #    Host
    #        This is the address that the server will listen on.
    #        To listen on all addresses, set it to 0.0.0.0
    #        Default: 127.0.0.1 (localhost)
    #
    #    WorldServerPort
    #        This is the port that the world server listens on.
    #        It has to be the same as what is specified in the
    #        realms table in the LogonDatabase.
    #        Default: 8129

    Host: If you want this to be online with a bit lesser lagg, choose: "0.0.0.0" - But, if you're a singleplayer, choose the "127.0.0.1"


    WorldServerPort: Do not ever touch this. Just let it be "8129".


    Example of all this:

    Multiplayer:
    Code:
    <Listen Host = "0.0.0.0"
            WorldServerPort = "8129">

    Singleplayer:
    Code:
    <Listen Host = "127.0.0.1"
            WorldServerPort = "8129">

    Note: You can use 0.0.0.0 for Singleplayer, if you want to.


    =================================

    Pt.3: Log Level Setup



    Code:
    #    Console Logging Level
    #        This directive controls how much output the server will
    #        display in it's console. Set to 0 for none, or -1 to disable.
    #        -1 = Disabled; 0 = Minimum; 1 = Error; 2 = Detail; 3 = Full/Debug
    #        Default: 3
    #
    #    World server packet logging feature
    #        If this directive is turned on, a file called `world.log`
    #        will be created in the server's directory and all packets
    #        sent and received by clients will be dumped here in bfg
    #        format.
    #        Default: 0

    Console Logging Level: Some see this as important, and I do too. Set this to "3"

    World server packet logging feature:
    Multiplayer: Recommended - Set as "1"
    Singleplayer: Not recommended - Set as "0"


    Example of all this:

    Singleplayer:
    Code:
    <LogLevel Screen="3" File="3" World="1">
    Multiplayer:
    Code:
    <LogLevel Screen="3" File="3" World="0">

    =================================

    #
    #    PlrUpdateDistance
    #        This directive controls the distance (internal yards) that the player can "see" up to

    #        Default: 1
    #
    #    Level Cap
    #        This variable controls the level that stats will be generated up to internally.

    #
