New Windows Server Woes - Shayran's Subrace Engine (SSE) & PWDB
I decided to move to the world of persistent worlds. I loaded up the PRC, built a module, NWN: EE didn't crash and I thought I was all set. Then my Linux skills failed me in setting up the Linux server. So with nwnx down the drain I began to play with the Windows server.
It is up and running, and I used Shayran's Subrace Engine (SSE)https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/script/shayans-subrace-engine-169
Of course a persistent world is not very persistent if all the data if everyone needs to restart from scratch the moment the module is reloaded (and expanded upon) . Thankfully that solution is in a nice neat little package as well called PWDB found at: https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/script/persistent-world-database-pwdb-v12-0
Both are quick and easy to use, in fact I created a new race for Shayran's Subrace engine following the stats from 3.5. It even had the proper ECL reducing XP for mobs. Then I discovered a problem. SSE does not work with NWNDB. Googling the problem I came across: http://smf.asmodei.net/index.php?topic=31188.0
The problem is both of the include statements do something different. The post was in 2015, I am fairly certain someone has solved getting the two to work nicely. if someone could post the fix not only would I be grateful I quite certain more than a few others who are looking to build a persistent world using windows will be thankful as well as they google to look for this solution.
