Seeking the trash talking script from "Pie In The Sky&q

Post by I_Died_Once » Fri Oct 28, 2005 10:15 pm

Perhaps someone might can help me here. A Temporal Distraction has informed me that the server owner for pie in the sky is laregely M.I.A. and he hasn't replied to jack that I have sent him. So, I turn here for what I seek...

I'm looking for the trash talking script from the old Pir In The Sky server. You know - the thing where when someone died, it would /say "Darth Vader overdosed on a bad hit of crack sold to him by A-Delusion" or some such... At least, I think its a script...

but I would like to get ahold of that and add to it/take from it and use it on Planet MoFo.

Would anyone happen to know where I could find said script (like I said, I think its a script - I'll CALL it a script) or get in touch with the Pie In The Sky owner?

I know a bunch of you guys all know each other from the pre 2.0 days, and I'm thinking SOMONE on here knows what I am talking about and how to get ahold of it....

I'd be interested in this script too. Is there a way to get it posted publicly?

Woot!

Contact has been made, this is in the works. I am going to need someone to code up the plugin...

It originally was a patch for bzfs 1.xx, and the man wants credit... called it a BSD liscence. Whatever - no problem.

I'd like to see this be a forward looking project, meaning that more "insults" can easily be added to keep things current. Possibly with more "on event" taunts than just dying, but maybe have it say things when an admin joins, and on flag cap... or on becoming the rabbit...

...or customize some of the messages to be said only when a certian weapon is involved "...kicked the whole team in the nuts" if you hit with geno, perhaps.


But first thing is first - what exists now is a patch... who thinks they can turn this into a plugin with expansion capabilities?

I could do this......but my plugin would be like a relay server (say it's on port 5154, and bzfs is on port 5153. The plugin forwards all messages from the client to the server and so forth, with afew eceptions), and written in the perl scripting language.

You can't write a BZFS plugin in perl.

I already started work on something like that. It's primitive now- everything's hardcoded in. Maybe in awhile, you know, it'll be here.

I wrote the same thing that RPG did.

I haven't been able to get file I/O working yet, but that's probably because my C++ book is dated 1992 and is for Borland Turbo C++ for DOS 6.0.

If you look at the pacthes for the SourceForge BZFlag
project, you will find what you want. Only problem is,
it needs to be updated to work with 2.0 servers.

Ok here's the deal:

If you've been to my server the past few days you probably noticed I have a Trash-Talking Script set up. If any of you want to submit insults, /report them. I can also add them 'live' without a server restart. Just don't post them here, JeffM might piss himself or something. (I think it's time you look at drinking more cranberry juice Jeff).

Now comes the problem -- The script doesn't work 100%. It will work perfectly for about an hour and then 'crash' resulting in an error message rather than the insult being displayed for the user. Now I'm thinking there's a trigger event going on when this happens, but I have not been able to pin it down. If someone finds it they can have a gold star.

Its both. 1badplayer.no-ip.org, tropican.no-ip.org, and grassrootsportals.no-ip.org all are aliases to my ip.

And yes the grassroots one was from when I ran Babel's when Hepcat closed but SilverCat was yet to open.
