(Admin Only) Remade All Game Editors in ImGui
Nin Online has always came with an integrated suite of game editors that allow on-the-fly changes to data such as Maps, Events, NPCs, Items, Jutsu etc. These are powerful tools that allow us to add content to the game quickly. Since 2013, we were using tools built in WinForms, which is a dated technology that is no longer well supported by Microsoft and is not cross-platform. I've remade all our in-game editors in ImGui, the same UI system that powers all our in-game user interfaces.

Just a few months ago, Nin Online contained the following UI systems, each coming with a little bit of deadweight to performance... Robin's UI system, Eclipse Origin's UI System, WinForms, WolfUI1, WolfUI2, ImGui. As of today, Nin Online only has ImGui.

This change will allow us to quickly add on features that are UI intensive features (eg. Guilds, Auctions) much easier in the future. This also cleans up our code base immensely. This also brings us closer to a Mac & Linux native release!

In order to achieve this, I had to remake the following editors while retaining, and in a lot of cases, improving on their functionality.




This is an example of a new Editor!


Hopefully this paints a picture of how much work was involved in doing this months long project. While it may not directly impact player's gameplay, it is important that we have the best tools to continue to create content for Nin Online.

I'm posting this also as a keepsake for the future to look back at these tools that me and a lot of developers for Nin Online have painstakingly worked with and upkept for the past 10 years. Even before that, these editors have had a long history dating back to the days of Mirage Source and Eclipse Origin (the engine Nin Online was originally built with).

Another cool thing about Nin Online's new editors (for devs) is that it all takes place within the game client now. So it can all be used in fullscreen mode without taking the players to new windows on their desktop.

The new editors are not only cleaner, but they are a lot faster and snappier. Here's a video showcasing our new suite of editors!

Once again, this is probably not the update you want right now. But it's the update we need to keep things going.

Besides the new editors, Nin Online is now also 100% free of Visual Basic code. Despite us being in C# programming language for the last few years, we've never been able to fully rid ourselves to Visual Basic code. Converting a full game over to a new programming language is a lot of work. Especially when Nin was as ancient a codebase as it was. We've now moved out of compatibility mode and Nin Online's source code is 100% that of a modern game.


I don't know how else to express how much work this took and how much this is going to improve our development going forward.

This is an example of one of many commits of me just deleting thousands of lines of code and making Nin Online's codebase way smaller and cleaner.


From the same time last month, we had 146456 lines of code in Nin Online's (client) codebase. Today, we have 90644. That's an almost 40% reduction in code.


This is a software called Gource that visualizes project codebases. This is what our source code for the client looked like just a few months ago, compared to now.

Server Live Properties System
Used by Admins to be able to set server specific variables like what animations play when certain actions occur. Eg. Resting animation. Also has tons of settings like increasing/decreasing daily missions and Ninja Time Speed. Just moving a lot of hard coded variables to Nin Online to make it more flexible.


RP Live Properties System
This is used for GMs to set RP variables like whom is Kage, Council Members, Clan Leaders from in-game.

Improved Noticeboard
Notice board now displays Kage, Council Members and Clan Leaders

Council Member Improvements
Council Members are no longer just a title. They now will have all the same rights as a Kage, so they can stand in for the Kage.
As the role of the Kage will increase in the future to manage more things that council members won't, there will be a difference once again.

Clan Leaders
Clans can now have leaders set by GMs for RP purposes. For now, the only benefit to a Clan Leader is managing furniture within the Clan house. Eventually, this will increase. 



Messenger Hawks now available for sale in each Aviary
Allows players to send Village Broadcasts and even Global Messages for a price. You can only carry 5 of each at a time, so make sure to use them sparingly.

Messenger Hawks allow you to send village messages up to 80 characters.
Great Messenger Hawks allow you to send village or global messages up to 120 characters.


Signboard Furniture
There's been two new signboard items added to the Furniture shop that allow you to place signs with words written on them in your house, or around the village.
I'm eventually going to also make it so you can decorate outside your houses!


Animations for Blanks Enchanting
These animations also appear for the people around you, so you know when your friend is having a bad rng day and can comfort them.


Animations for Faming and Defaming others
This appears above the famer and famee to make things more apparent.


Storages Improvements
Added Right-click menu to Storages and Drag and Drop capabilities to match Shops, Trades and Inventory



(WIP) New Village Score System
It's on the way to becoming a proper, complete feature. It's got proper editor integration and doesn't rely on the our event system. It currently displays on the noticeboard. It'll soon play a much bigger role in in-game political systems. The old score system will soon be deprecated.

The old village score system was hackily placed together with existing in-game features at the time. It relied on giving items to players when they complete quests and then having an event in each Mission Assignment desk that would check for players with those items, remove them, and add them to a variable.


Continuing working on Auto Chunin Exams
Changes includes handling more edge cases. GM Panel having Ryo cost setting and added a Questions setup section for RP Panel for Council and Kage to set up questions that will appear in Theory Exam. Improved UIs for Quiz.


Tournament Schedule, Ranking & Leaderboard
You can now view tournaments scheduled, your total tournament stats, monthly stats, leaderboards and a "Hall of Fame" from the noticeboards in each village.


Tournament Winner Monthly Reward
On top of being added to the Hall of Fame, you will receive a mail with a reward for being the top ninja each month! This might be expanded later to include more prizes and participation awards.


Item Cooldowns now visble in Inventory
It was previously only visible in the Hotbar, which could cause confusion.

Item Cooldowns now persist after logout
Previously, relogging in would reset item cooldowns. Item cooldowns were added hackily in the early days. It's been done properly now.



Unzipped Leaf Flak Jacket added to Chunin Shop
Unzipped Sand Flak Jacket added to Chunin Shop

Art by @Hoseki


(Backend) Cleaned up Item Types
We used to have 30 types of items and it was getting messy. Blessings, Hair Styles, Dyes were their own item types for example. They've been streamlined to just be consumables.

(Admin/Dev) Improved our Variables/Switches system
It's now all stored in MongoDB, was previously stored in .ini files. Now supports flagging Variables to be reset daily, reset on death or to retain past character resets.

Fixed keyboard input bug
Fix the year long bug where Keyboard inputs are missed sometimes when chatting or typing into UI.

Fixed double click sometimes triggering wrongly
(Admin/Devs) Improvements to Event Editor

Cleaned up our server packets

Server now makes sure players are saved even when admins shut down on very very short notice (was a potential exploit)
For blessings, times blessed message now doesn't appear on screen, just the first message. The blessing amount appears in chatbox.

Fixed Noticeboard not launching on login
Fixed Tournament HUD/UIs (regression in last update)

(Admin Only) Editors Improvements

Improvements to sorting of winners for tournament leaderboard
It was previously only sorted by Tournament Wins. When it was a tie, it was sorting randomly. Now it's sorting by Tournament Wins and then secondarily, Match wins. I still want to prioritize Tournament Wins so as to not make smaller tournaments not worth much.

Added an option to outright ban specific items and jutsu from tournaments
Previously this was a pretty hacky conditional check to see if the item/jutsu belonged to a corp or had a high index. Now we can be more selective.

As a result, some things that were previously unequipped like Akatsuki or ANBU clothes that didn't have stats will now be wearable during tournaments.

Raid Points now affect Village Scores
Obtaining Raid Points now contribute towards Village's Economy and Manpower Scores, losing Raid Points negatively contributes to your Village's Economy and Manpower Scores

Tournament messages are less obstructive now, no longer showing on screen, only in textbox
Now that the UI/HUD shows everything you need to know, it's no longer important to show it on screen

Tournament notifications with "Join" button now display again
Tournament notifications timing also increased to 20 seconds up from 10. Do note you can also go into your Alerts menu to check older notifications.

Other bug fixes/improvements
Leaderboards now show up to 30 players
Added Tournament Leaderboards in each arena
Fixed Kage/Council Members not being able to clean up Furniture in village maps
Raid Info HUD sizing fixed, could sometimes be cut off

Fixes to Friends coming online messages sometimes showing ex-friends
Banned Items and Jutsu are now displayed on the Tournament Bracket UI (Tab)
Enforce Banned Items from the start of rounds
(Hopefully) Jutsu should not be able to have casts started until Match countdown ends
(Hopefully) If a tournament teammate leaves, the entire team will not be disqualified, unless team is dead
(Admin Only) Fixed copy and pasting event commands also pasting entire events by accident
(GMs/Admins) Added "Add Player" and "Remove Player" buttons in Tournament Hosting Menu (adds targetted players easily)



World Map Feature rework (+ World Map Editor)
I've reworked the World Map system completely. It's been one of last UI elements that needed a severe rework.
New players will now have a much easier time locating quests and locations in general in the future.
It comes with a fancy editor for us to make maps. It also supports maps for separate locations, the toad mountain area, indoor locations. etc.

We're still working on the actual map though!

(On the backend side) World maps are now our first list based data type instead of using fixed arrays.

Tournaments Leaderboards Pages
All players who participate in tournaments are now visible on the leaderboards, leaderboards are sorted into pages.

Other changes
Texture dictionaries now support subdirectories

Toad Arc now has a proper map


New version (v4.5.4) has been released with an update to the World Map
After @Erox completed filling up the world map, I realized the world map really needed to be bigger. In order to encompass this, I've added dragging to large world maps. Also, Admins/GMs can now double click on the icons on maps to teleport to those locations.



v4.5.5 has been released with another update to world maps
World maps now have lines to show the direction of the linked maps, making it a lot clearer.


(Admins) Improvements to Editor

v4.5.5b is out with the following changes
Testing improved weather effects for rain/storm


Also improved regular walk animation for NPCs
Fixes to Localization (regression in recent versions)
Minimap Keycode no longer triggers while typing in chat

A hotfix for Bubble Clone Technique (Exploding NPCs) not triggering properly when attacked from downwards direction has been pushed live.

Medcorp Jutsu Changes
Name: Hundred Healings Mark > Hundred Healings Orb
Description: A medical technique that allows the user to collect chakra and concentrates it into an Orb which amplifies the power of their techniques by 12%.
Visual: changed from the purple aura to a blue orb that floats next to the player.

Neo Akatsuki Changes
Visual: Changed the Red Aura to the Purple Aura (It seems more menacing, also give me room to work on something else which is TBA).

Kage Clothing
General: The colored version of each set is now locked to the "Kage" Rank and of course the respective Village, this is so the active Kage can stand out among the crowd (Unless of course someone transforms into them)

(Note: Due to the hierarchy in the class editor missing nin are still able to wear the colored versions of the kage clothing, theres nothing i can do to fix this.)

The Ambassador: An NPC has shown up in Takumi seeking former leaders (Ex Kage), if you have the original Kage drip and still want to wear it you can get a version of the original from him. 

Puppet Brigade Changes
Member limit increased from 10 to 12

Medcorp Jutsu Changes
This isnt so much a change but a grammar fix, the jutsu has always been useable by Special Jonin but the text said "Must be Chunin or Higher to use", it has been changed to "Must be a Ranked Ninja to use" to avoid any confusion 

Added 3 new Headband/Forehead Protector Styles!
Backwards Bandana Protector (All Villages)
Single Horned Forehead Protector (Mist)
Double Horned Forehead Protector (Mist)


Kage Requested Title - Unit Leader
This will be given to leaders of official Corps (MPFs and Medic Corp will retain their separate titles)

(Backend) Variables/Switches can now be set to reset on login/logout

(Backend) Events can now set variables to "scopes"
For example, setting the player's team's variables, or everyone on the map the event is ran on.

Election System

This is another step towards a more automated and significant role in factions and politics in Nin Online. While it is a huge change, we hope that players will understand that these changes with the political systems will eventually facilitate a much better overall experience. We will further build upon this to make players able to control much more within the game's state by participating in these RP systems.

Apply to run for council member
Also able to see what other candidates are like before the voting begins. The application stage is set to 4 days at the moment, but we can increase this through our server settings at any time.


Manage your campaign slogan and appearance on the voting page
Once the voting begins, you will no longer be able to update it!


Vote for your favorite candidate for council member
Pick people who represent your ideals, support your causes and will choose the Kage you will be proud of.
There will be 7 days (we can adjust this too, but only before an election starts) to vote and you can visit the voting station at any time.


Council members will then decide on the next Kage
Council members will have 3 days to finalize their decision for Kage, they will manage it by accessing their Village RP Menu and putting in their pick for Kage.

If there is a tie, nobody will be picked and the dateline for Kage selection is delayed a day (the Kage term is not extended).



This system will roll out and replace all manual leadership systems for all villages, including Mist and Sand. We will no longer manually manage who leads each village. There will not be any different political systems per village (in the near future).


Ninja Menu improvements to stats adding
If you reset stats, it will immediately update without you re-opening the menu

Stat Resets won't be consumed if it will take no effect
If a stat reset is used when there are no stats to reset, it will not be consumed. To prevent accidentally resetting stats multiple times mostly.

Fixed bug where Experience from Missions are not granted to you if you are fainted when it completes

Improved Login/Quick Login
Fixed issue where it was expiring tokens when you relogged in while your character is still in-game
Now only applies 30 second PvP timer (stay in-game) when you logout with a PvP timer
Sped up the process to logout if you have no PvP timer substantially.
Added warning when logging out.

Map Capturing System

This is a major new gameplay mechanic!


Capture Points on maps allow (up to 4) ninja to stand or fight within them to capture the map. Ninja of enemy villages can oppose by standing in any capture point on the same map to defend the map. Once a map is captured it provides a 1.25x Drop Rate bonus to ninja of that village.


If a village map is captured, it will become a War Zone until it is reclaimed by it's original village.


Captured maps will glow the village color on the world map


Captured maps will show an Icon of the village beside the name of the village

Other changes

Repositioned Ninja menu expand character button so it doesn't clash with "Spend Mastery Point"
Improved Mini-map Icon art
Fixed a crash when bingo book is opened with no bounties at all
