Welcome to Mayhem Gaming. We hope you enjoy your visit.

You're currently viewing our forum as a guest. This means you are limited to certain areas of the board and there are some features you can't use. If you join our community, you'll be able to access member-only sections, and use many member-only features such as customizing your profile, sending personal messages, and voting in polls. Registration is simple, fast, and completely free.

Join our community!

Our community focuses on Pen & Paper RPG's such as Dungeons and Dragons, New World of Darkness, D20 Modern and other RPG systems. Those in our community play these games online, typically through an open source program called Traipse Openrpg, Maptool, Instant Messengers, or in our Play by Posts. Our membership is open to everyone worldwide. Our Registration page is here.

After joining our community, you will receive an email. The email is sent by an admin after your membership has been validated. This validation usually takes less then 24 hours but until then you will only be able to view portions of the community. We require that members make at least one and only one post to The Portal, a section of the boards where you say hello and introduce yourself by telling us some of your gaming experience. Simply post a new thread in that section (linked below) with anything you would like to say. I recommend posting in this section verses posting to a game board because these posts are never deleted (over a years time a game board might get deleted if its no longer used). We look forward to your post and want to welcome you to our online community! Our forums are also family friendly so please watch your langauge when posting.

In addition, for those who are rejoining the boards, we are glad you are doing so but bear in mind that you will also need to make a post to maintain your membership.

Known installer bugs

Without the NISI script file, the .nsi file, we might have to write a new windows installer from scratch which is a task I don't much like the sound of.

The hard work of the installer appears to be written into python files that are executed by the installer; specifically setup.py Possibly all the installer does is ask you if you want to install Python/wxPython, copy some files across and then run setup.py Hopefully that's not hard to write a script for.

One bug in the actual installer per se so far is that if you have a copy of Python and say "no I don't want you to install Python" it doesn't give you the opportunity to install wxPython after.

The rest are bugs in setup.py

(1) Before moving files into _del it needs to check if the _del directory already exists and delete that directory.
(2) It needs a better function for finding Python's Script directory for the HG script -- or else fully install mercurial. If the Python install places the Script directory inside a Tools directory the installer fails.

There might be something we can do about the Vista permissions thing, at least as a warning message.
