    Mist of Pandaria REPACK, 5.4.8 News [27-07-2018]




    Dear Emucoach Users,


    The day’s 27th of July. A new Mist of Pandaria repack update is in place. You heard right!

    Today, Artamedes and I have some new features to show, some new information and we’re happy to tell you that we’re much closer to an actual release of the MOP repack. More information about that included later in this thread. The development team has done massive amount of fixes to the core. Even fixes that aren’t even seen on a 5.4.8 or 5.4.7 emulator or repack.


    Progress
    Recently we’ve reached above 2000 commits. Yes you heard right, 2000+. I think, at this point, it shows how serious we are about delivering a proper Mist of Pandaria 5.4.8 repack to you guys by our development team and Emucoach. And the best part is that even when the repack gets released, we’ll still be updating it on a daily basis and Emucoach will have version releases - just like Cataclysm. Our progress has been focused on quite a few things - and this includes opcodes from 5.4.7 to 5.4.8, structure fixing, spell fixing, movement fixing and soon enough - world fixes as well.
    Now we’re planning to do something big. And that is to import our Cataclysm content to MOP and start on a fresh. This means that most of our Cataclysm world fixes will be imported to MOP. This includes quest fixes worldwide, creature scripting, creature events and texts, creature emotes, spawns etc - things that the Emucoach team has worked really hard on for Cataclysm (and will continue) that are planned to be included for MOP as well.


    ETA: 5.4.8 Mist of Pandaria Repack
    I want it now.. Now.. now! We understand you do. We want to release it as much as you want to use it and play on it. We still have to finish the last things (Opcodes, structures and import the Cataclysm content). Emucoach plans giving a specific date shortly in a new update, but I can promise you it’ll be shortly. Eventually a month or even less depending how it goes. That means we could be talking weeks, and up to a month.


    New Login System
    In our MoP repack we will have a new unique feature. Emucoach login system.

    Now what is this login system?
    When you first open the mop repack it will ask you to login to your emucoach account. Based on the information you entered, the repack will determine if

    1) you have an account at emucoach
    2) you are a special rank on emucoach (supporter, vip gold, any rank)
    3) if you are banned on emucoach

    With this information stored, the repack will determine how it should run. With VIP features, or veteran features for people who have had an account on emucoach for a long time. VIP features has not been decided yet nor has veteran features. We could take suggestions for it though! Maybe some custom scripts can activate.


    From the developers

    Incase you are interested in the behind the scenes of development, of how things are coded here is a few examples:

    Packet System: [Only registered users can see this link. Therefor you need to register first, and hopefully we see you wanting to join our friendly community we are trying to build up. Enjoy! ] : if you have some knowledge of basic coding you can see how we are doing our opcodes. I won’t go too much into detail, but the way we are handling opcodes is through OOP (object oriented programming), this way we can easily edit opcode structures no matter where they are used by just editing the stand alone packet file, if for example they are wrong. This also helps keep track of amount we updated, and such. Here is a screenshot of our packet folder [Only registered users can see this link. Therefor you need to register first, and hopefully we see you wanting to join our friendly community we are trying to build up. Enjoy! ] , some files in this have over 2000 lines of code, and others not complete.

    Development Progress: Our development team works on mop every single day. We average about 30 commits a day since the past few weeks. Which helped us reach 2000+ commits in no time at all. Sometimes we work until 6 AM time, just to deliver the best possible experience.


    Tl;dr

    Well as a summary mop is in some hardcore development. At emucoach we don’t want to release some average repack, but instead be the best and stay the best. A release ETA will come soon, hopefully very soon!! Please respect the amount of hours and sweat that is put into our repacks. We also don’t want to use stock scripts either from the default JadeCore, so after cataclysm content is imported, we will spawn the mop content, and start scripting it too! (This means pve content, like quests, raids, instances etc++) Thank you!


    We are open to any suggestions that you guys may have. And ask any questions you may have (as long as they are reasonable!) Artamedes and I are happy to answer any emulation development/programming question too!

    Best Regards,
    ExO & Artamedes, Emucoach.com

    You asked for a new update, and here you have it =)

    Everyone:
    Keep in mind we are always open for suggestions on how we can do better or what we should include in the repack. (Eg VIP version, free version etc)

    Appreciate all the hard work that is going into this.

    I love the idea of having the repack determine the level of access (standard, VIP, Veteran, etc…) versus the development team maintaining multiple versions and placing them for download in the appropriate section of the forum. This could however backfire depending on how it is implemented.

    For example if it is simply calling out that the forum servers user access database this could easily be redirected and pass back whatever level you want.
    Kind of like how some of the hacked bot applications currently on the forum have you run a mini web server to trick the app into thinking it is calling home to authenticate.

    Again, great idea. You may have already though about this and put countermeasures in place so this may be a pointless concern. Since the actual method used to grant access is not available for review until the repack is released I thought I would just mention it. I just don’t want to see all the teams hard work be circumvented by some little redirect app that give, a new user to the forum, full VIP access without them contributing to the effort.

    Looking forward to the release and great job all around.

    You should be able to use the repack OFFLINE like any other, if you really have to include the forums rank system, it should be stored locally and should get updated once you´re logging in again while having a internet connection.

    So going on about the Login system, we will come up with special algorithms in place, You will need internet the first time you open the repack, then after it can load offline.

    Thanks for your interests guys.

    Since this will be an initial check the first time you open the repack you will need a way to recheck in case someone wants to upgrade to a VIP account after checking out how amazing the repack is first as a normal user.
    Or have it check each time it is launched , so long as there is an Internet connection, to update the access level.

    Don't want then to have to delete and redownload/setup the entire repack because they when to VIP or VIP Gold.

    Just a thought.
