Im guessing you would need to have a vars.txt like file. If you open that theme it would set the vars to /set _mirror /set _skyColor and all that

He made a theme plugin, Im not 100% sure on how it works.

Ask him for it.

IMHO, themes suck, normal BZ is fine...

You need themes on your server. You don't have to put many themes but you need the default one because polls can change everything and it's faster than setting everything back.

There is no need to have a theme. It is just easier to do a /servershutdown, and when it comes back it will be the way it was originally configured. Also, disable permissions for '/poll set' and you will not have issues with people messing with your server variables (-pollSet if I am not mistaken).

errrmmm.... you forget basic wildcards

Code: Select all

/reset *
everything back to absolute, default, no arguments, normal.

If you want my advice i wouldn't allow your server admins/cops (and especially not the general public) the /set command. It gets way to much misuse, the the point at which it gets boring. I know far too many twelve-year-old-that's-just-discovered-set-command-trigger-happy-i-can-do-anything-because-i'm-an-admin type people.

That works.. cool, I didn't know that one. You learn something new everyday. And at my age you sometimes learn the samething everyday, but you just don't remeber you knew :p (I avoid servers where the admins are allowed/encouraged to use the /set command. )

Most (all?) plugin code is cross-platform. Just compile it like normal.

First, just set the variables you want (/set _skyColor, etc)
Then, do

Code: Select all

/theme save [theme name]
Finally, to list and load the themes, do

Code: Select all

/theme list
and

Code: Select all

/theme load [theme name]
I belive thats how to do it. I might be off a little. But this can only be done on the servers with the theme plugin

The problem with /reset * is that it resets everything to default - period. Meaning, if you had options in the worldfile to have _wingsJumpCount 5, but then did /reset * to fix the theme you're talking about, it would reset the wings jump count back to 1. Same with all other variables. So if you have a completely normal configuration/settings...yeah, that'd work...

Since 2.0.8, BZFS takes the options in the map file as defaults for that map, so /reset * would reset to those settings.
