  • new forum suggestion....

    Hey admin,
    How about a forum where we can get help on making mods... a sort of server mod help forum. I have a mod based on IHOC source with FBX added into it and need some pointers on working the bugs out...


    Anyhow, here are some of my concerns:
    When I added frikbot to my source, it disabled my root-login abilities and caused various other bugs. I can fix the root-login I am sure of it, but I need some help with bot-kick functions. Right now, if I have the server full of bots and a player tries to connect, my server will crash. I want my server to kick a bot if another client connects... That way if one bozo comes in and spawns 11 bots on a dedicated 12 server, people can still join. Then I want if the clients get maxed, to show a message to the person saying it is full. IHOC has a server transfer function that I believe works, but stopped when Frikbot was installed. Also, Frikbot comes with a client kick the bot if the bot is in the client's player number- this sadly doesn't work either- I suspect its because both functions are there and try to do two different actions at the same time, resulting in an immediate crash.


    Any takers?
    How about the forum? With a 100 members in only a week, I bet we would have more people posting in a mod help forum for server admins.... I just feel this thread is out of place and there was no place to put it.

    Probably your best bet would be at one of the following forums:

    http://www.inside3d.com/
    http://www.quakesrc.org/
    http://www.quakedev.com/
    http://forums.runecentral.com/

    Those forums all have more of a developer slant than this forum ever will. Inside3D and QuakeSrc have QuakeC tutorials, although they may or may not apply to your particular situation.

    If you are really QuakeC literate, I'll post a link to at least 1 mod (with the source) that has Frikbots incorporated that was used more or less as-is on a popular server not all that long ago.
    Quakeone.com - Being exactly one-half good and one-half evil has advantages. When a portal opens to the antimatter universe, my opposite is just me with a goatee.

    So while you guys all have to fight your anti-matter counterparts, me and my evil twin will be drinking a beer laughing at you guys ...

      I found the download I was thinking of:

      Frikbots Merge with Full Source Code

        gpeters; Inside3d forums really would be your best bet simply because FrikaC does read those forums, and hes one of the main guys in charge of I3D anyways, and who else could help you on the subject better than him ?

          Another guy you could ask about this is Chuck [NYGMA], he merged frikbots with runequake. He is registered at this forum.
