Chat customizer plugin

Post by reaby » 14 Jun 2016, 19:47

Hi everyone at ManiaControl community :)

Due I heard there could be demand for chat customizer... I thought I could convert the one we're using with eXpansion to ManiaControl. The plugin is still being validated by ManiaControl team, but should be hopefully enabled soohish for the latest version.

Features:
  • Ability to enable/disable public chat others than admins.
  • Abililty to change chat colors for admins and for players
  • Ability to change chat separator char
  • Ability to disable/enable the usage of maniaplanet changed chat color
  • Ability to disable/enable profanity filter to block bad words
All above settings are available at the ingame-settings manager.

Just for your info:
Teamchat gets disabled, as in api there is no way to know if user uses teamchat or public chat.

Known limitation is, that the chat re-route will fail if multiple server controller instances are running.
You get only minor error message at the console in this case, and the normal chat is then restored.
This may happen on restart of controller or if 2x instances of controller is running.


Hopefully you find this useful,
Reaby

Thanks a lot for the Plugin!! I checked the code, everything looks fine (gave you a small feedback over the system) :).

hi reaby,

I activated your plugin on my server ELITE-Training. And suddenly there was no difference between teamchat and globalchat. So i tried to deactivate it, but the only effect was that maniacontrol shutted down and started new, but the plugin is still running. Has the server to be empty, without players, to deactivate it?

cheers, wawa

Indeed, the teamchat doesn't work, but it's rarely used at TM, mostly only at teams mode, which is quite rarely used.
Have to see why it doesn't unload, maybe maniacontrols new version has something changed, or there is a bug while unloading...

-edit-
Unloading is now fixed.
New plugin available @ pluginmanager :)

I guess lack of team chat completely kills the communication in the game mode.

Edit: no way to see if user is using team chat? What about /t command that prefixes all team messages.
