Site News 1 year Anniversary

Posted By houkouonchi On: 2013-09-20 19:41:42

Just wanted to post that today is's one year anniversary. The domain has been registered over a year but it was a few days before the server was running and people actually started playing. This day marks a year since I first got the SMO server setup and people could connect and play on it. I would say a lot has changed and been improved in that year =)

Happy anniversary SMO!

Japanese input has been enabled on the server by converting text written into the chatbox into hiragana. This probably doesn't mean much for most of you but it can be enabled with the /japanese command. It can be disabled by running the /japanese command again. It should behave similar to windows IME input. The examples/details were explained in the above post in Japanese.

Support for Friends and kickban

First off a new /kickban command has been added so you can permanently kick peopl from rooms so they can't rejoin. I know this has been requested a lot.

As some of you have already noticed there is now a friends button in the right navigation menu under the link to your profile (if your logged in):

You will also notice friend Invite buttons on the profile pages where you can request people to be your friend. If you have any friend requests you will have the number of them in () Near the link to your friends page. From there you can accept/deny friend requests. This is also where you can cancel and or remove people from your friends as well.

Once someone is your friend you will get a server mssage whenever they login to the server (first line in the screenshot):

If you the /friends command you will get a list of your friends and the room they are in in this example:

'friendname': (Roomname)

Like in the screenshot (third line)

Lastly when they disconnect you will get a message letting you know they have disconnected (third line in the screenshot.

Here is the screenshot:
