Stendhal Testing

From Arianne
Jump to: navigation, search

Testing Stendhal is not only fun, it's also very important because it can solve problems before releases. If you find any problems or need help with testing please ask at #arianne. If you have found a bug, feel free to submit a report directly.

We have a dedicated test server on Port 32100. It is refreshed with new code and a new copy of the real database once a day. You can login with your normal account, if it is a least one day old.

You may need a test client. Please note that the test client will not update automatically. Just save the file, extract it into a new folder, then double click the stendhal-starter.jar.

Testing Aids


A special helper NPC, Aida, is available on the test server. You can request any item from & she can teleport you to specific maps, any NPC or player, & she can mark empty scrolls for you.

Tests Specific to the Next Release

You can use a 1.35 release client to logon to test server, but if you will need the 1.35.5 client to be able to test all features.

It is helpful to also use the test client to play on the main, release, server. Playing normally with the 1.35.5 client could help us uncover new client side bugs, so long as any bug reports make it clear which version of client you use and which server you are playing on.

  • When you do each stage, read your console log.
  • For quest testing: if you want to use an existing char, that has done most quests, you can reset all quests by saying cleanme! (with "!") to Diogenes. This only works for admins.
  • The test server log is here and can be useful to check if something strange happened (just scroll to the bottom for the latest entries)

Create chat log for tests

Please try to play dumb and fool the NPC by asking stupid question which may confuse him. For example say that you already have the items you are supposed to fetch although this is not true, yet. Reject the quest first time and only return later to accept it. Try to ask to start the quest again once it has finished, this kind of thing.

Please say Bye when you want to finish the conversation if the NPC is still listening.

We need full chat dialog for these quests:

  • FishermansLicenseQuiz from the fisherman in Ados huts
  • Meet Io
  • Getting a maze from Haizen chatlog needed: solving maze, chatlog there for: player logs off while doing it
  • Meet Zynn Iwuhos
  • Dice Gambling with Ricardo Junit test needs creation still
  • FindJefsMom
  • KillMonks
  • CleanAthorUnderground
  • WaterForXiphin (Patches tracker ID: 3520164)
  • TrapsForKlaas
