hey all.....i'm looking for a server side mod that will put messages under the compass

i've got one such mod, but it doesn't work and didn't get any instructions on how to install it

i've read in other forums that there is one or so, but nobody has actually said where to get one from or how to do it

i can edit .pk3 and .scr files if someone can show me what lines to type and where they go

any help is greatly appreciated! thanks

put this in your .scr you can name it whatever thread ya want and change the wait times to increase/decrease the frequency, the last wait time is how long to wait b4 it loops again


thread tool

tool:
wait 15
iprintln "Welcome to the TOOL Clan Server"
wait 10
iprintln "Because of you The TOOL Clan Server is ranked Number 1"
wait 120
goto tool

end

you can also use a free program called king crows autokick. it has a server message setting. you can add as many lines of text for the "console" to run through at set times. you set the message and how often it runs those messages. such as
xxx number of players have played on this server today
welcome to the "fill in the blank" clan server
ect......

there is also the feature to control high pingers, kick and ban players as well as a few other neat tricks. you can set the max ping. it has a place to list banned i.p and name.

you can run the program off a seperate computer and it uses no bandwidth from the server. i run the program off a spare computer at my house and can not notice any difference in my ping or download speed.

i run this program on both our sh servers. and love it!!!!!!

most maps have a Hello and Welcome thread

it follows the style that Dewave posted,

//------------------------------------------------------------------

hello
wait 30
iprintlnbold "Welcome to the XXX server"
wait 30
iprintlnbold "TKing will get you kicked"
wait 30
iprintlnbold "69.xx.xxx.xxx Stock Map Server"
wait 60
end

//-------------------------------------------------------------------

welcome

wait 60
more of the same as above


//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

i've seen the threads listed in a map's scr file, a mod's scr file - also referred to as: soundgun instead of hello, or it ends with "go to soundgun", or as a reminder, or reminder2

get yourself pakscape and take a look at a custom map, you'll see. Open up the .scr file in notepad - copy it and paste into notepad and use that as a template. Its time consuming, but I've put hello/welcome messages on my server's maps - one by one - I haven't figured out how to make a global batch of messages work - and I don't want to use CI; and I haven't figured out how to make my own yellow text messages;

but I have done a global scoreboard message file - if that interests you, just make a text file and call it whatever.scr and put it into the global folder with a exec whatever.scr command in the precache scr - it worked for me using a weapons mod's global/precache files.

Isn't there a small mod around that allows you to use these servermsgs through an rcon command? (Like Snake's Server Patch has/had)

Foresight is an Admin tool that uses timed server messages similar to CI. The messages can be in various colors and in different locations. The developer also wrote a small application that is only the messaging portion of Foresight called Ticker.
Get Foresight info here.
Download Ticker.

MAM has its own commands that can be used via rcon to do messages also.
Download MAM here.

MAM message instructions are in the Addon Pak commands. The commands you are lookking for are: sayc, sayi, sayb, sayp. The info is here.
