i have gotten info from reliable sources that a plugin to do that would be possible..to go with the crontab thingy.-

You could have a plugin that records high scores for the day, and then announces it every few minutes.

You wouldn't need bzfcron for it to work, though.

bzfscron has no way to obtain the scores, it can only run commands. A better option would be to write a new plugin with the functionality you want.

I already got a prototype doing this. It keeps track of all-time highscores and players own highscores. Its pretty chatty, annoucing everytime someone breaks the all-time score. I got a testserver setup, so if you want to break my highscore, let me know :-)

I'm not working on it. i haven't even started it. It seems like meacan has some substance, so I won't do anything with it.

'twas just a joke. :)

And meacan: Can you post the server address and port here for all to see?

bzflag server: 217.157.132.92:5154
stats: http://217.157.132.92

This is just a temp. server, so quick - beat the score :)

Short description: It's a 1 player server with alot of bots. You got 5 minutes to kill as many bots as possible, before the game is restarted. Can you beat my 20 points?

not bad...but you misspelled personal when it tells you your new personal highscore. and, could you set it to give the high score for the past 24 hours, or any set length of time? and out loud..not just to you.

Typo fixed. I'm planning to make a last-24 hours highscore too, but i need to think of which other features i need before digging into the code again.

The announcements are goning to be configurable, so its none, private or public. On large servers, it might be too much if every new personal highscore is announced.

yes, i dunno about the personal things...if they are there, they should be personal.
