Oh nevermind I forgot the commas, now it works.

Well crap, it seems to be broken AGAIN.
here's the code, it just won't promote people past anything pro
i also manually did it but it changed them back when they died

Code: [Select]
-- ["hours"] = "group",
["24"] = "senior",
["15"] = "legendary",
["12"] = "awesome",
["10"] = "respected",
["8"] = "1337",
["6"] = "pro",
["3"] = "builder",
["1"] = "experienced"
}

local excludeGroups = {
"moderator",
"vip",
"admin",
"superadmin",
"owner",
}

Your previous post was several hours after the author of this mod was last active.
Bumping does no good if they didn't even see the first post.
"Last Active:     February 22, 2009, 02:12:07 PM"

Check the profile and see if they provide an email address or other means of contact.
Perhaps leave a quick PM, as they may have 'email me if I get a PM' feature turned on.

Has someone this plugin installed and fully working at the moment ?

I am really interested in, but I want it to work perfectly after installation.

I suppose we have to wait till some hero comes and fixes it for us as the writer isn't going to be able to fix it any time soon :(

It seems it's broken again.  :-[

Here is my lua file :

Code: [Select]
if not SERVER then return end

--AutoPromote 1.1
--Automaticly promotes players to different groups based on UTime.
--By HOLOGRAPHICpizza. Released under the MIT license.
--Update By: Jay209015

local promoteGroups = {
-- Groups must be listed in decending order.
-- ["hours"] = "group",
["36"] = "heromember",
["32"] = "platinummember",
["28"] = "goldmember",
["24"] = "silvermember",
["20"] = "bronzemember",
["16"] = "member",
["12"] = "highlyrespected",
["8"] = "respected",
["4"] = "builder",
["2"] = "newbie"
}
-- Groups not touched by the script
local excludeGroups = {
"mingebag",
"miniadmin",
"admin",
"superadmin"
}

--DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING--


--Check what group they fall in.
function promoteCheck(ply)
local hours = math.floor((ply:GetUTime() + CurTime() - ply:GetUTimeStart())/60/60)
local newGroup = "user"

for k, v in pairs(promoteGroups) do
if hours >= tonumber(k) then
newGroup = v
end
end

return newGroup
end

--Check if they are in an excluded group.
function excludeCheck(ply)
local excluded = false

for k, v in ipairs(excludeGroups) do
if ply:IsUserGroup(v) then
excluded = true
end
end

return excluded
end

--Promote the player to the group.
function promote(ply, newGroup)
if not ply:IsUserGroup(newGroup) then --Make sure we don't promote them tho their current group.
game.ConsoleCommand("ulx adduser " ..string.format("%q", ply:Nick() ).. " " ..string.format("%q", newGroup).. " \n")
end
end

--Checks if they are ready to be promoted.
function deathCheck(ply)
if not excludeCheck(ply) then
local newGroup = promoteCheck(ply)
promote(ply, newGroup)
end
end
hook.Add( "PlayerDeath", "deathCheck", deathCheck )

It worked when I put exactly this file before, I didn't make any change.


Edit : The problem will be harder to find.  :'(

It stops promoting when the user is in the " Respected " group. I tried to " promote " a guy to " builders ", then he killed himself, and he has been promoted back to " Respected ". I don't know why, but it stops promoting after " Respected ". This guy has more than 8 hours of playing.

Edit 2 : I tried to promote the guy to " Hero Members ", it worked, but after that, he stays an hero member, it seems that the script doesn't detect more than 3 groups. Maybe it's because, by default, there are 3 groups in the list ?

I looked over the code, and the only thing I can think of is to look in your server console and see you have have any errors. Sometimes when trying to format string to have quotes you run into problems when users have special characters in their names. So in the console you should find an error right after the player you're trying to have promoted dies, something like invalid group or invalid user.
An error only becomes a mistake when you refuse to correct it. --JFK

I just tried with me.

I have more than 24 hours of playing, I removed me from the users.txt file, but it added me to " member " group, I was supposed to be added in "silvermember".  :-\ And no error at all.

I also tried to add me directly in " goldmember ". When I kill myself after that, nothing happens, and the scoreboard, and me, my hp and armor, stay at " member ". The color is green for member, and even if I add me into higher groups, I'll stay in green.

Edit : It seems it's totally broken now. I have deleted my users.txt file to clean up the system, I have readded myself as superadmin, but when a player with more than 6 hours of playing comes and suicides, nothing happens.  :-\

Edit 2 : Well, it's kinda strange, it worked for one guy, only one, I don't know at all what's happening there, I don't know if it's my server or the code, but it's really, really strange.  ;D

Edit 3 : Finally, it worked for 3 guys at the moment, I'm really confused, I don't know what's the problem. :-\

Edit 4 : You were right, special symbols cause the plugin to bug with players who have them. A player had a " © ", I told him to remove it, it worked. But I wonder why people are not added in the right group. I mean, they have sufficient time to be in " gold member " and they are only in " member ", things like that, I don't know why.

Edit 5 : Yeah, I confirm, it does the same thing it was doing before, but in different way, now it doesn't stop at " respected " but it stops at " member ", even if a guy has more than 26 hours he will stay in the " member " group, I don't know what to do. :-\ It seems that times which are needed to be promoted are important. Since I changed them, players can be promoted to " members ", before they could to " respected " only. I don't know what's happening, but if you could look into the code and search for conflicts between times we set and promotions... It could be great. :)

Edit 6 : I still have the problem. :-\ Plugin is blocked at " member " and doesn't want to promote more.  :'(

Sorry for bumping, but maybe I didn't have answers because my post date from the 22. :-\

So, I bump.  ;D

Right now it still doesn't work.  :-\

EDIT : It's really strange. I have changed required times again, and now, people can go to " Gold Member ", but they are blocked to " Gold Member ". So, I'll try to change the required times to be a " Platinum Member " and a " Hero Member ".  ;D

The author of this script hasn't been active in 6 months. What would be the interest level of remaking this script? Any more features you'd like to see?
