Please test the train page (in Changelog)

With a very few characters -- Caoimh is the only one I know of for sure -- going to the train page would trigger a fatal bug in the xml parser and crash the server. This is the source of the recent mini-rollbacks.

Changing xml libraries isn't an option; the only other one available for tcl with reasonable performance is much crashier. (Using a niche language has its drawbacks.)

So, I wrote a program to convert the train page to a boring old tcl-based template. It seems to work for me, but please exercise it and make sure it works. Then I will start converting my other xml-based templates to avoid potential crashes in the future.

Seems to be working to me.

Works fine for me. My training sets still work 'n' everthang.

It's not supposed to look any different, is it? Because it doesn't.

lostling October 31 2008 1:00 AM EDT

are the training pages working for those affected yet? such as beastmode?

I got to the train page fine but I did have to click twice on show all minions which I never had to do before.I did it a second time to make sure.It blinks the first time and doesn't expand,then I click a second time and it works.

Mesoshort October 31 2008 3:17 AM EDT

Mine is fine.

QBJohnnywas October 31 2008 4:23 AM EDT

Yeah, 'show all minions' seems to require a click to wake it up, then click again and it works.

Everything else seems to work ok.

Unappreciated Misnomer October 31 2008 5:22 AM EDT

sometimes the training page acts weird. like i could train a new skill EO ED even though i dont have the exp, or i have exp and i cant train base stats(hp,st,dx=20) but i can still apply exp to an already trained skill DD EO or ED

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 31 2008 6:16 AM EDT

Can I dump in some illegal characters in the names of the minions see if that does anything?

At the moment zero problems.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 31 2008 7:22 AM EDT

No problems so far. I did notice a change yesterday where the fractions listed 'third' and 'half' instead of '1/3 Max' and '1/2 Max', but that seems to have been reverted.

I second Johnny about the 'show all minions' button.

Newlin [SeeD] October 31 2008 8:29 AM EDT

works for me

AdminJonathan October 31 2008 9:08 AM EDT

> I did have to click twice on show all minions

thanks for catching that. fixed.

> Can I dump in some illegal characters in

Sure. Try battle cries, too.

Roachenfuss October 31 2008 9:14 AM EDT

My train page isn't working either and the forum posts are off and on.

AdminJonathan October 31 2008 9:42 AM EDT

> My train page isn't working either

not much of a bug report, but I think it's fixed.

Roachenfuss October 31 2008 9:56 AM EDT

everything seems to be working now thank you.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] October 31 2008 10:20 AM EDT

nope illegal characters not one single problem, CB doesn't display them even.

Zaekyr November 1 2008 2:39 AM EDT

I still have to double click to "show all minions".

Cube November 1 2008 3:11 AM EDT

What browser? I don't have to double click show all anymore.

Zaekyr November 1 2008 6:30 PM EDT

OK now I don't have to double click.....ty Jon :)

Lord Bob November 1 2008 7:42 PM EDT

Mine's fine, but I wasn't having a problem to begin with, so I'm not sure if that's relevant.

Thraklight Resonance [Desire Develops An Edge] November 1 2008 10:16 PM EDT

Mine just asked me if I want to bench one of my fairies. :-)
