Enchanted Key[edit source]

Hey! Great work with all the map images on the Enchanted key page. I am just wondering if you ever made an image for the first and fifth location?? All the numbers are in numerical order from 1 to 11, yet I can't find any evidence of you ever uploading image one and five. I assume that image 5 must have existed at some point since it has been linked to on the page for ages OMG! Do you have any idea what happened?? Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 05:20, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for explaining. I really was stumped about what had happened to the images. It is possible to use a fansite's guide to get your bearing on where the spots are without having to check them in-game. (don't feel like I am forcing you to make the images, only do it if you want) Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 08:05, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
Oh, ok! Great plan =D Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:08, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

RE: Javascript on the wiki[edit source]

That's correct, for the most part. JavaScripts cannot be embedded into a page directly, for obvious security reasons. Users can choose to either install them into their personal script file, or administrators can install the script into the site-wide [[MediaWiki:Common.js]] file. If the latter, then all users, including unregistered ones, will be able to run the script. --Quarenon  Talk 07:21, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

Zmi altar versus Living rock caverns[edit source]

The ZMI world is official, listed when you scroll through the world select buttons. The caverns are not. That is a rather big and notable difference.-- 16:44, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

I put it back in after thinking about it, you were right. --Degenret01 14:50, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

rest[edit source]

I was mistaken, the time is offset starting when you begin rest vs the regular time of regaining the hp. But resting in the arena is a serious waste of time and is highly inefficient. Its like telling a lvl 105 to train on goblins.--Degenret01 16:28, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Bonus XP Formula[edit source]

I don't really care about which one to keep. I just don't want a reverting war. I suggest to make an 'Advanced math formula' and an 'Easier math formula' section on the page. What do you think? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:10, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

That is okay with me! Though I think that the table which shows a lowering of the modifier every 45 minutes (and maybe the graph) is enough to understand it. ;) User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:59, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Periodic countdown timer[edit source]

Thanks for the code! I've [{{fullurl:MediaWiki:Common.js|diff=2484413&oldid=2471851}} merged] your changes to the file. --Quarenon  Talk 23:46, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Great. By the way, what's the status on your map planner? I took the liberty of adding it to the "cool stuff" list on RS tools Smile. I also wanted to know if you had an alternative place to discuss future changes to it since the basic proposal behind Forum:Journer_Planner/Mapquest_idea has now been implemented and I wanted to close it with a link to some talk page if any further discussions needed to be made. --Quarenon  Talk 04:47, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
I think the best place is to have a userpage about it with a link to your talk page in case people want to report problems or suggestions. You might also be able to enlist help/support on the mapbuilding wikiguild although I'm unsure if it's still active. --Quarenon  Talk 16:39, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Also, Chicken7 suggests creating a temporary wikiguild for it, you can see the proposal here. --Quarenon  Talk 20:20, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Timer[edit source]

Hey, sorry for the late reply! I only tend to sign in the wiki once a week :\. I think that would be a great idea that will help hunters know when penguins reset! The reset times have been very consistent for well over a year. There's only been around 5 instances where it was slightly more than an hour after 1 AM GMT (2 BST), the latest being about two months ago, with only a mere minute past. I don't think seconds would be necessary, and I'm not sure if that timer is compatible with days, but no worries if you can't change that, it's just my opinion. :) Boomer12342 22:44, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Improving the pathfinder[edit source]

I would like to help you improve the (awesome) RuneScape pathfinder you've made. Mainly, I'd like to add "directions" for different quest locations. Do you think this is possible? ShinyUnown T | C | E 11:21, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

Hi , Its the first option when you talk to him... Is there anything I can do for you?

link for puzzle solution EW3[edit source]

The solution you have could be very useful to people. To keep it within our gidelines or whatever, a good option would be to place that on a subpage of yours (I.E. Stewbasic/EW3 or some such name) and you are allowed to link to that from the guide.--Degenret01 16:45, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

Trap placement image[edit source]

Hey, for me, that image doesn't really make clearer where the traps can be placed. Could you please make a printscreen of a POH dungeon's minimap, and then highlight the traps in that? It would make it clearer in my opinion. If you don't have a dungeon yourself, or are non-member, please leave me a message on my talk to let me do it. Thanks, JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 14:50, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Blast Furnace[edit source]

Calculators/Ores has that information in more detail. I'm not opposed to having calculations in articles. In fact, I've added lots myself. But when there's already a calculator page that presents the same information in a better way, there's no point to it. --Saftzie (talk) 18:29, May 23, 2011 (UTC)

Quickpreview fix for calc.js[edit source]

Here is a fix for the calc not working when quickpreviewing: User:Tyilo/quickpreview.js Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 16:14, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

Calc suggestions[edit source]

  • Disabling hiding elements of a select input
  • Modifying string case (lowercase, uppercase, capitalization) for modifying file links...

Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 18:41, March 18, 2012 (UTC) Capitalization:

{s:'cap',a:1,eval:function(x){var capitalized = ''; $.each(x.split(/\b/), function() {
    capitalized += this.toString().substr(0, 1).toUpperCase();
capitalized += this.toString().substr(1).toLowerCase();
return capitalized;}},

Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 21:25, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

It works with monobook... I have no idea why it isn't working with the oasis theme. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 07:10, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Another function (actually two) to implement:

{s:'round',a:2,eval:function(x,y){return Math.round(x*Math.pow(10,y))/Math.pow(10,y);}}

And please explain what p and la does. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 21:36, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Quick Question[edit source]

As you (probably) know the javascript calculators the best, I need to know, how I can make the calc have the option to be either level or experience (yes through select) but how can you have the user have one input be experience and the other be level. I have been experimenting a tad bit here and it currently is experience. Thank you. Hair 22:06, March 31, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that works great! Thank you, very much! I'll go back to the calc now, with that. =D Hair 00:49, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Take a look at my code[edit source]

Hi! I have just made a script to make a version of Treasure Trails/Full guide, which doesn't crash my browser and still having all the information available. I don't know how much treasure trailing you are doing, but could you take a look at the script, as it is my first javascript script which uses jQuery. The page is located here: User:Tyilo/Treasure Trails and the script is located here: User:Tyilo/tt.js. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 21:48, April 6, 2012 (UTC)

SOF[edit source]

I'm planning to add the extra Squeal of Fortune spins in a standardized way that includes a note that the reward began on 24 April. The people adding that information to quest pages did it in an unorganized, often misspelled way, and in different places around the rewards section. I'll fix it today or tomorrow.

Also, I owe you money. ʞooɔ 02:47, April 25, 2012 (UTC)

calc.js[edit source]

Hi, USer:Stewbasic/calc.js is causing a couple of wanted files, specifically Special:WhatLinksHere/'+s+' and Special:WhatLinksHere/Fi'+'le:'+s+'. Any chance you could fix it for me? Cheers. cqm talk 09:57, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, wanted pages, as well as files and categories, is generated by a wiki-markup link usually such as Example. This is the first time I've seen it caused by js. I imagine it could be caused by external format links like aswell, although I've never come across such an instance. Cheers for sorting it though (: cqm talk 22:26, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Advanced Calculator Help[edit source]


I'm currently working on a special calculator and I was wondering if you could help me with something. Simply come in the Chat or add me Idk_Whats_Rc.


Re-Help Calculator[edit source]

I've already talked with Joey but he said he didn't know how to do it and suggested me to contact you.

I want to be able to use an output in regular formula:


|colspan=3 class="jcInput"|type=output|name=xp

Use that 'xp' in:

  • {{Coins|Amount = {{#expr:( {{{xp}}} * {{GEP|Magic logs}} / 324 round 2 )}}}}

(Note: xp does get a value after a let(xp,something) )

The only way to do it right now is:

  • let(cost,xp*{{GEP|Magic logs}} / 324 ))
  • |colspan=3 class="jcInput"|type=output|name=cost

But that means I can't use Coins|Amount or formatnum. It's also longer to write.


RE-RE Help with Calc[edit source]

First[edit source]

Why is the first code working while the second one doesn't work (They are exactly the same but the name of the inputs and outputs.???

NOTE: I give up... Simply press EDIT to see the code...

*{|class="wikitable" |Enter XP: |class="jcInput"|name=xp |class="jcInput"|name=exp |- |Cost: |class="jcInput"|type=output|name=cost |- |class="jcInput" colspan=2|type=button|sublist=dostuff|value=Calculate |class="jcSub"|dostuff| let(exp,xp*5) let(cost,exp) |} {|class="wikitable" |Enter XP: |class="jcInput"|name=xp1 |class="jcInput"|name=exp1 |- |Cost: |class="jcInput"|type=output|name=cost1 |- |class="jcInput" colspan=2|type=button|sublist=dostuff|value=Calculate |class="jcSub"|dostuff| let(exp1,xp1*5) let(cost1,exp1) |}

Second[edit source]

I can't use the get(Coins,cost,Amount) command as soon as I use another variable.

For example, I transform xp into exp via let(exp,xp*5) then I want to use the new 'exp' into the calculation but it doesn't work...

*{|class="wikitable" |Enter XP: |class="jcInput"|name=xp |class="jcInput"|name=exp|type=output |- |Cost: |class="jcInput"|type=output|name=cost |- |class="jcInput" colspan=2|type=button|sublist=dostuff|value=Calculate |class="jcSub"|dostuff| let(exp,xp*5) let(Amount,(exp*{{GEP|Magic logs}} / 324) round 2) get(Coins,cost,Amount) |}

Enter XP: name=xp name=exp|type=output
Cost: type=output|name=cost
type=button|sublist=dostuff|value=Calculate dostuff|

let(exp,xp*5) let(Amount,(exp*396 / 324) round 2) get(Coins,cost,Amount)

Calc not working in preview[edit source]

Although you can preview the calculator in the preview window, the controls doesn't respond to clicking and the sublists never fires. Could you take a look at this? Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 11:34, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

I was wrong the sublists fires, but checkboxes doesn't update their stat. Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 11:49, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Stew. Can your calculators using your script be transcluded onto other pages and passed parameters through a template?
