did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.

only reason they were distracted is because "holy shit chat", they'll stop being excited when they get used to it

also requests
  • Names are teamcolored
  • Teamchat
Team chat may not currently be possible. Well, it's possible, but the API doesn't allow you to send packets to specific clients, so everyone would receive the packets for private team chat. That's probably not a problem, since the plugin would obviously not show messages not meant for your team, but someone could possibly intercept team chat. :U

Quote from: Script PluginPacketSendTo
// Sends a packet for a server-sent plugin to a specific client
// Returns true if successful, false if not
// argument0 - plugin packet ID, passed as argument0 to server-sent plugin upon execution
// argument1 - data buffer to send (maximum size 65535 bytes)
// argument2 - Player object for client to send to

That would be quite heavy, maybe laggy and certainly completely stupid, but you could for each player whose team == myTeam in global.players, PluginPacketSendTo, etc...

Also, I don't understand line 3 :  global.chatPacketID = argument1;
I thought loadserverplugin script only accepted one argument?

Somehow I managed to forget that I actually implemented PluginPacketSendTo. It wouldn't be slow at all, actually.

Ignore everything I said before, I'm really dumb.

I updated the docs in the Medo42/master version of GG2, it now says argument1. But that was done yesterday, so GG2 v2.5.1 has incorrect comments still.

Stuff that would be nice:
-Typing bubble (to tell if afk or writing)
-Teamcolors
-Somehow make host-messages clearer.
-Make chat not affect moving, namechanging (ServerMessage.gml, too)

Well then, you've gone and made it très soigné.

Some minor issues:

After dropping the relevant files in the plugins folder, running 'Gang Garrison 2.exe' pops up the following error message.

___________________________________________
ERROR in
action number 1
of Create Event
for object SplashController:

Error in code at line 8:
   global.chatSprite = sprite_add(argument0+"/ConsoleWindowS.png",2,0,0,0,0);
                                           ^
at position 42: Wrong type of arguments to +.

However, I can ignore and continue as usual without any other issues. Chat seems to work correctly.

Also, chat spilling out of the chat window:


Aside from that, it works very nicely!

Um, it's not a client plugin. It's a server-sent plugin. It's useless and stupid to try to extract it to your Plugins folder.

Maybe Windows's Large Fonts setting breaks it?

Alright after many hours of cursing and failing i got this working properly now.
New features:
-better line wrapping (if you use normal font settings at least)
-team chat
-changeable controls (plugin menu)
-shouldn't trigger when writing text in a menu.
-color code
-announces when someone with chat joins
-no longer a required server plugin. (Clients can choose if they want to use it or not)
-host gets a different text color so his messages stand out.

AJF isn't online so it isn't updated yet but it will hopefully be soon. finally done
