Simple databasing

Hi, Is there a reason this has to be done via SQL? I think, that your applet, wherever it is loaded... would have to also have access to SQL... do what I do and just make a simple winsock server daemon program in VB that listens for connections, receives command(s), and spits out answers. Have your applet connect to that to do the dirty work. build in encryption if you want.. then let the VB app talk to SQL... or even easier, save your data in .dat files on the VB server. Seems safer in my opini...

Facebook integration into web applet

I have found it is just flat out easier to use PHP or JS functions to get my jabaco applets to interact with facebook if I need to.. I just use JS and call the JS function by name from my Jabaco applet. Its actually pretty easy... Regards, Jason

Some extra info and history

Hi, I have here some extra updated info and some history about this project. I have recently decided that I am going to make this entire project open source (the server too) and continue working on this project, the client is in pretty good shape right now, but some testing needs to happen, I want to add some more major things, and I need some good input too. The server, is going to be my next big project. I plan to convert it also to Jabaco in the near future, and its source will be open too. T...

Java 7 JRE breaks playing sounds saved as resources in Jabaco project

Hi, After an update to Java 7, the playing of sounds imported into the resource folder into my hosted Jabaco projects seemed to be broke in applets made and tested with JRE 6 or previous and Jabaco, but only if loading the sounds as internal jar resources. You have to load them via url() function post-jar-load. I have fixed most of my apps on my site, but have one left to fix. Xmas game hasnt been fixed yet, as I plan to do a huge update to that anyways. It's a pain how things get changed like t...

Hi, I am preparing for ver 3.0; Will have probably 15 more compiles and testing between now (ver 2.99i) and 3.0. There are a few things I could use some help on. I need others help testing right now. I have 4 computers here, and on 3 of them (All 4 running different flavors of Win7). For some reason, I cant get past 'Loading audio sample 28/38' on one of the machines, unless I sit there and let it wait for about 10 minutes? Then it finally loads... So weird! I need to know if it is just somethin...

JRPGT Client & Mapeditor source code & server executables I have updated & included here a link to the source code for the JRPGT client and online map editor. I have also included the required server daemon and utilities executables. A few things to know about the server/client. You must host the client applets on a web server, define in the source code your servers hostname, and open port 21 (port forwarding) on your firewall to this domain/hostname. Static IP or hostname is recommended for best resu...

Source code

Hi, I have made the source code to this applet available at This is a basic example of how to use the .PaintPicture method and an animation loop, without the need of using any sockets or connection to a remote server. Please compile your applet as a .jar file and place in same web server directory as index.html and xmasgame_with_facebook_posting.html . The facebook html file shows how to make 'prompts' to post things to a users wall popup, using ...

FTP help?

Greetings donkjam, I have here a VB6 sample ported to a Jabaco applet, made to upload files using post via HTTP, but not FTP. Still, I find it useful. The text fields are pre-filled out in this sample, but you need to modify them (especially mime type unless it is a plaintext file), then click select your file & upload. This applet could use some basic code to auto generate the mime type based on extension. The default php url in this sample, that allows you to test uploading a file, is the orig...

About PictureBoxes...?

Hi, It has worked for me.. but only when using the .PaintPicture method... set your source image's opaque property, then use paintpicture to 'blt' onto another picturebox... as far as completely transparent parts of an image, you need to use a transparent gif. ~Jason

Version 2.95b

Hello, I have fixed a lot of more things in Jrpgt. I have updated the packet splitter, seems as if there was some inconsistency in it, on both the server and client, but not anymore. It is quite a bit faster on map file transfers too.. Bad error correction was causing a random tile, or two per map to be drawn as the incorrect tile, sometimes.. usually only when the map contained a lot of non-blank tiles. Anyways, I am happy to say that issue is gone, along with many other very annoying problems....

Bugs fixed

Just an update on jrpgt... I recently have fixed many, many bugs within the Jabaco Client and the Server source. Its current version is 2.94L, I have also updated the client source zip file link mentioned previously in this thread. At this point, there are several utility programs that are part of the server package. You could literally use the client applet, server, and utilities I have created here, throw in your own graphics, create your own maps, and have a completely different game... the o...

About destroy() and Me.destroy

A few things to add to this subject.. since I could not find any similar threads about the subject... To get your winsock/graphical app to close correctly.. You must use the Sub destroy() ... not Applet1_Destroy() ... Inside of that sub, you must kill all timers, animation loops, and winsock connections [using Winsock1.Close() or whatever your winsock is named...], then I have also found it helpful to add in a line at the very end of Sub Destroy()... Me.Destroy() Now, make sure when you type in ...

Can not initialize Type variable (multidimensional array)

Hello, I have ran into this issue also... however, I have not had issues using variable arrays inside type structures.. as long as I have clearly defined its limits/min-max for the array... It appears you have done the same and it worked for you... For whatever reason it seems you cannot have an infinite or undefined array in Jabaco, but you could in VB6. It seems to work anywhere I have needed it to, as long as you define the arrays size up front... I have not tried this, but I bet you could Re...

Confused about portability??

Hi, The winsock control definetly works on all platforms I have tried... Slackware, Ubuntu, and OpenSuse Linux; Windows 2000, XP (32 & 64), Vista (32 & 64), 7 (32 & 64). MacOS and Mac OS X also have been tested. The only things I have had issues in general with is playing wav resources on one flavor of linux. Mac & Win and most versions of linux are fine w/ sound though. That isn't a control though Reguards, Jason

Facebook API

Hello, I have found this snippet of java that will allow you to utilize the facebook API via a Java servlet.. ... I tried but cannot figure out how to translate this to Jabaco, only parts of it I could take a guess at but needless to say I cant get far enough to get it to work.. Is it possible to be converted to Jabaco applet code? From my understanding this is the main peice you need to access major FB api calls. Anybody know how to translate it? I understand Java support from fb alone is non e...

Present Snatch

Hi theuserbl, I changed what sub the timers are shut off in to Sub destroy()... and guess what? It worked. **Thank you** I have been trying to figure out how to do this for, quite some time with little success. How did you figure this out? =P To all of those as confused as me... Please note that.. Sub Applet_Destroy() and Sub Destroy() are not the same thing, obviously lol. This was the main reason I would get exceptions in all of my other web applets too when closing them. I knew there had to b...

Hi, I have noticed alot of people asking about this... Unfortunately I do not think it is possible yet. However...if you are at a complete standstill on your project because of this... it is easily possible to host a daemon app in VB6 that utilizes the 'servers' serial ports for whatever the purpose is.. read the data... then spit it out to one or many 'client' jabaco applet(s).. and utilize it... and then if needed send data back to the daemon via the jabaco applet for processing to the com por...

open a link with default browser

This works well via Jabaco runtime, however, applet at run time via web browser returns an error and does not execute. Message Error attempting to launch web browser access denied ( <<ALL FILES>> execute) I have the below the code to work the exact opposite, to -work- via browser, but -not- jabaco runtime.
