Plugin request for "SPECIAL-EVENTS"

On ENIGMA V.4 ATG we have several "EVENTS" to be activated Serverside and the Banners are updated aswell during activation. The Banners usually show up every 15 min.... but there is a good chance to have the appopriate "EVENT-BANNER" finally after 45 min ´cause in this case there are at least 3 Banners active...

Here´s the question:
Is there a way to have a plugin that enables the player to type... lets say "/events"--- and get a list and maybe a short manual for the activated event displayed from a serverside .txt- or .ini-file which could be modified easyly during serverside mod-activation via the script.xml of FLMM ?

THX in advance

J.R.

We have the older non-plugin-version of FLHook 1.67 (modified 88FLAK-Version) on our server... so my request would be on a "stand-alone"-plugin... or something that works similar...


Any help would be great.


Greetings, J.R.

You could try to use CheatersDeath additionally.

Hi,

I can recommend you python (an easy to learn, but powerfull scripting language). The script should use the socket connection that is aviable by FLHook.


I had once written lots of "plugins" in python to remove load from the server. Two years ago I began to rewrite my script completly, but I only rewrote the bulk (Event-Listener, worker, config read-/write and parts of language switching and databases). It could do much more.

If you have already experience in programming I can provide you a copy of it. If not I would recommend you learning it by yourself, because it is very easy to learn, but can get very complex and mine is not easy to understand for an beginner. If you want to learn it, this openbook will give you excellent help: http://openbook.galileocomputing.de/python/index.htm


If it has no rush and you don't want to learn python you can send me a list of what it should do exactly and I will try to make a version that is fully adjustable for your needs. But this will take some time, because I have currently no server for testing (I would create an VM so don't worry about it) and the time I can spend on it varies strong.

Greetings

@Killerkeks:
This would be MORE than awesome since i´m not familiar with plugin-coding at all. This is a VERY nice offer of yours... mate.

From your TSP-user-data I assumed that u´re german aswell.
So if u don´t mind I´ll send you a PM later on with further details. (in german language)

THX in advance and grettings


J.R.


@F!R:
Thanks for the hint....but we are running the german version of FLServer so unfortunately ChaetersDeath is useless for our needs. (since it only supports the english version)

Thank u anyways mate

@Robocop

The events plugin, goto the Eagle Utopia forum, it's in the 3rd Party Plugin Downloads section in the FLAC bit. Written by someone cunningly called Bob. Works a treat

Got it.
First thing I notice is that there's no mention of banners in the xml. The instructions on the forums page say I'll need to disable the banners plugin and use this one instead.
Any suggestions on how the banners are referenced?

I'll check it out.

Simple xml with a few twists. The UnderVerse has been using this for three years.

You can edit banners from ingame as an admin or you can edit the xml file directly on the server.
