Since the site is rather old, and many members have not been seen in years, the majority of inactive members have been purged from the system. Sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.
News & Announcements / New Gallery
After some debating, there's a new gallery here at BurkeKnight Enterprises.
It's made so people can download the images, comment on them, and also be able to use them in posts.
However, it's made to not allow hotlinking to other sites.

Since we all have busy days, I figured we could use this topic to just copy/paste an image to let others know we are still around. It's called checking in, and it's a neat way to be able to let people know that you may be busy, but you can at least pop in for a visit.

News & Announcements / Site Remake
After a while of the older site having issues, as well as me not having much time, I have finally updated the site.
I've switched over to using ElkArte forum for the base site, since the SMF site had so many issues, especially with the portal.

I hope everyone likes the new site. :)

If anyone notices anything broken, please post it here.
Gamer's Haven / Burke's Realm - The Realm Online
I've started playing an old game, the original online game that started all my website work way back in 2007. The Realm Online. It's under new ownership, and they changed some things, but it's still going, which is a big surprise.

Here are my characters:

Character Type Key:
AIEW = All Intelligence Elf Wizard
ASGW = All Strength Giant Warrior
ADET = All Dexterity Elf Thief
AIHA = All Intelligence Human Adventurer
Gamer's Haven / The Realm Online - INFO For New Players
INFO For New Players

INFO For New Players (UPDATE 07-14-21)
Common directions - U=up R=right L=left D=down tp=teleport

Alt+T will show you everythig on your floor so you can pick up things.
To speed up the game press f12, 5 times quick. To slow it back down use f11. On a laptop you may need to use the Fn key with f12.
Go to Options. You can slow down the start combat speed on the dial. 45 gives you more time to decide what to do, and Turn on Auto Give so people can hand you things.

Start your adventure in the TENT 1R out the gate by the tp in EL. There is everything a new toon needs there all in one place.

Getting skills cost build points (bps) as well as the book/skill cost.
LOOK at you and see what weapon you use and what lvl of skill you have for it. Find the clerk (in the tent) who has weapon skill books.
Get skill books for your weapon. You can't fight without skill even if you have a weapon. If you have a dagger and want to continue using that, be sure to read dagger. If you want to switch to a throwing dagger, read THROWING. Same for swords. Think about what weapon you want to use and read that skill; long, short, or 2-hand sword.

Orbs are your friend. There are orbs for healing and tp that work just like spells. Teleport orbs will group teleport so when in dungeons do not use them around the rest of your party or if you are using multiple players/accounts.
When you have the skill you need for your weapon - go into the basement of the tent. Start combatting in the room on the left and work your way right. The rooms progress in dificulty as you progress in lvls/hps. If you'd rather, go outside into Ratling Run and kill rats and zombies. Zombies drop an essential spellbook - Unlock.

You need good armor. To find suitable "Familiar" armor for your toon go to Kurz and left from the tp to Targoths (a sarc). Go in the sarc and down the hole. Then go 2L - 2U - 3L - 1U - look in bones and collect any familiar clothes and anything you want to sell. Activate the floor button, go out, go back in do it again as many times as it takes. You can fight or not, up to you.
Familiar armor: WW (windwalker) for thief - WL (warlord) for warrior/hitter - Thaum, Elem, Necro are for wiz toons. Any of these can be mixed for new toons. But keep looking until you have an actual set. Maul of the Mist is also found in this bonepile, it is a suitable starting weapon for a warrior (hitter).

Where to find a few of the needed low level things:
Spellbook of Unlock is dropped by zombies in Ratling Run. This spell is needed to unlock some doors and chests.
Stingers and Fangblade's are sometimes in the bones in Targoth's, in Thieves Hole and Bounty chest dropped by many foes outside. So are various axes, clubs and mauls.  Thieves Hole is also a fine place to grab your first 50 or so levels with a chance to find a Stinger or a Belt of Carry (also Fenris Cave), an essential ingredient for success.
Claymore (2-hand sword) in Emerald Forest in Enid's Bounty chests.

Green text items can be identified with scrolls bought in magic shops.  Belts, Rings and Amulets should be idenfied until you have your belt of carry and corresponding types of jewelry.  Endurance rings for all classes until later lvls, intelligence amulets for wizards and amulets of combat for hitters. When you have what you need you don't need to ID any more. Colored text means something special. Find out what it is before you sell it.

WHEN YOU DIE YOU DO NOT LOSE ANYTHING BEFORE LEVEL 50! After that you can activate insurance ( /ins ) and instead of taking your good chanted clothes or weapon the game will take some gold. So -
Be brave! Try things see what you can do. Get to know your toon and capabilities.

Be Brave!!  And Have fun!

Laugh Lounge / Hearing Aid
After years of hearing loss, an old man was given a hearing-aid that was barely visible. A month later at a check-up he told the doctor he’s really been enjoying getting to hear his family so clearly again.

“That’s great!” Says the doctor. “I’m glad they’re happy you can hear again”

“Oh, I haven’t told them” says the man. “But I’ve changed my will 3 times so far”.
Forums / Role Playing Forums
I used to deal a lot with one of the more popular forum types to do story telling RPG's, ProBoards.
However, since they got taken over by another company, Vertical Scope, that within months stopped any and all upgrades, including one that was in the works for several years, I have left them for good, not only my forums there, but other RPG forums I visited often.

I was starting work on making my 2 RPG sites with SMF, but since they seem to be in a decline, I thought better and scratched the plans. Now, if SMF did something similar to what ProBoards had, maybe there could be some return to some of these forum types. By that, I mean besides having the showcase board, have an advertising board for their forums, where they post their advert, and people can search the board for forums they might be interested in joining. This works with more than just RPG forums, but all types.

Personally though, I feel that forums are slowly becoming the past of the web. Social media is starting to really kill off the basic web site world, since you can do a lot more with them now than before. Like Facebook pages, for example, not to mention Tumblr and Discord.

I'm just hoping that the forum world can survive the younger generation's fascination with the social media networks.

Forums / TinyPortal - Recent Topics Block
This is a modified version of the Classic Recent Topics block for TinyPortal.
Used in a PHP block.
Works best when in a side block that is set to 300px.

Code: [Select]
global $scripturl, $context, $modSettings, $settings, $txt;
$context['TPortal']['recentboxnum'] = '25';

        $bb = $modSettings['recycle_board'];

$what = ssi_recentTopics($context['TPortal']['recentboxnum'], NULL, NULL, 'array');
$cmax = count($what);

echo '
<div style="width: 100%; overflow: auto; height: 30ex;">';
$member_ids = array();
                foreach($what as $wi => $w)
                        $member_ids[] = $w['poster']['id'];

                        $avatars = progetAvatars($member_ids);
                        $avatars = array();

foreach($what as $w)
        echo '<span class="tpavatar"><a href="' . $scripturl. '?action=profile;u=' . $w['poster']['id'] . '">' , empty($avatars[$w['poster']['id']]) ? '<img src="' . $settings['tp_images_url'] . '/TPguest.png" alt="" />' : $avatars[$w['poster']['id']] , '</a></span>
        <div class="smalltext"><a href="'.$w['href'].'">' . $w['subject'] . '</a></div>
        <div class="smalltext">', $txt['by'], ' <b>', $w['poster']['link'], '</b></div>
        <div class="smalltext">';
        if (!TP_SMF21)
                echo '<a href="'.$w['href'].'"><img src="'.$settings['images_url'].'/'.$context['user']['language'].'/new.gif" alt="new" /></a> ';
                echo '<a href="'.$w['href'].'" id="newicon" class="new_posts" >' . $txt['new'] . '</a> ';
        echo '['.$w['time'].']

        if($counter != $cmax)
                echo '<hr />';

Tips & Tricks / How to redirect to another URL
How to redirect to another URL:

The simplest way to redirect to another URL is to use an HTML <meta> tag with the http-equiv parameter set to “refresh”. The content attribute sets the delay before the browser redirects the user to the new web page. To redirect immediately, set this parameter to “0” seconds for the content attribute.

Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url='https://www.domain.tld'" />

Website Scripts / SpeedCheck Widget
This adds a SpeedCheck widget to your website.
You can adjust the css as you see fit.
How it is set now, allows it to show decently, like on the site here, in a 250px block.

Where want the SpeedCheck to show:

Code: [Select]
<div id="sc-container">
    <div id="sc-branding" class="sc-bb">
        <a target="_blank" href="https://www.speedcheck.org/">
            <img src="https://cdn.speedcheck.org/branding/speedcheck-logo-18.png" alt="Speedcheck"/>
<script src="https://cdn.speedcheck.org/basic/scbjs.min.js" async></script>

CSS File:

Code: [Select]
#sc-container {
        margin: 0 auto;
    width: 200px!important;
    max-width: 200px!important;
    height: 300px!important;
#sc-start-button, #sc-details-button {
    cursor: pointer;
    max-width: 200px!important;
#sc-results {
    width: auto!important;
    max-width: 200px!important;

Designing & Graphics / Display a different logo on mobile and desktop.
Code: (CSS) [Select]

  /* hide mobile version by default */
  .logo .mobile {
    display: none;
  /* when screen is less than 500px wide
    show mobile version and hide desktop */
  @media (max-width: 500px) {
    .logo .mobile {
      display: block;
    .logo .desktop {
      display: none;

Code: (HTML) [Select]
<div class="logo">
  <img src="/images/logo_desktop.png" class="desktop" />
  <img src="/images/logo_mobile.png" class="mobile" />

Tips & Tricks / Make site a PWA
This is a great way to make your website open in it's own window instead of opening up as a tab in Chrome for Android.

Another good thing about it, is that you can save the apk for it via your device's app drawer, and share the app.

Make site a PWA

Make a file in site root: manifest.json:

Code: [Select]
  "background_color": "navy",
  "description": "Site Description",
  "display": "standalone",
  "icons": [
      "src": "images/app_logo.png",
      "sizes": "200x200",
      "type": "image/png"
  "name": "Site name",
  "short_name": "App Name",
  "start_url": "https://www.domain.tld/"

Add to main index page: (Inside the <head> tag.)

Code: [Select]
<link rel="manifest" href="https://www.domain.tld/manifest.json" />
