I've put the SVN into my server's addons folder, put the "ulx title" commands into my groups.txt and restarted the server, but it's saying the title commands are unrecognized, am I doing something wrong?

The name shows above someones when you go close to another player, though. But the title space is empty.

Be patient.
This isn't facepunch with millions of users who visit every day.
I'm sorry you're having trouble, but haven't used this mod so can't say why it's not working for you.

In the meantime, If you aren't sure how to install the addons, there are plenty of other instructional sites out there.
Make sure you're using both ULib and ULX SVN from this site.
Check for server errors at start up.

None of us here particularly enjoy hearing "it doesn't work" without exact errors or what/where you installed something.

Please paste your console output when you start up the server. Use [code] tags or pastebin please.

Good News Farnsworth!

I updated Player Title II. I added a gettitle command to the ULX side of things and purified some Lua comments. Also "protected" (surrounded in an if block) the MySQL require line if you have it set to use MySQL.

Now the bad news.

The old SVN link no longer works, because I had to delete the account in charge of it (it was compromised). New SVN link is http://lavacano-gmod.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/playertitleii/ .

I really like this addon, it's the little things like this that can really make a server stand out from the crowd.
I find that the names get too big at a distance for my liking, a crowded area can get very jumbled looking, and it becomes hard to see what people are working on at distances because of it.

Settings in XGUI to control the fade/scale would be an ideal update in the future, if you are planning to continue with the project

I like this idea.

Fade I can definitely do. Scale, not so confident about.

As for a settings UI...I'm more likely to stick that in the Settings or Options tab on the right side of the Q menu, for a couple of reasons:
  • XGUI is more for general ULX things so far as I can tell (and admittedly I don't use GUIs all that often anyway, personally preferring console commands, so I could be horribly horribly wrong)
  • The text part is done completely clientside so it would make more sense to put clientside settings with other clientside settings :-P

Normally I'd get to work on that right away, but I don't currently have a server to horribly destroy with badly made Lua test on (I'm waiting for my relative to get back to me on the Linode she said she was going to get for me). Soon as I do though, I'll get crackin'.

There IS a place within XGUI designed specifically for client-side settings (see http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/8822/1newclientmenu.jpg). It currently only holds settings for XGUI, and I was planning to use the space for future projects.

But yeah, XGUI is designed to be modular to whatever content you'd like-- the general rule of thumb is that if ULX is required to be installed for your addon to function, then you can put it in XGUI (if you want :P)

Let me know if you want to inquire more about it.

I've never dealt with database stuff before and I don't have any mysql or sqlite database... I'm hosting a Gmod server from my computer and I'm using this addon. Suprisingly, when I shut down the server and run it again, the titles are still there. So my question is where are they saved if I don't have any database?

I believe it just saves everything to the sv.db file.  I could be wrong though.

As original post mentions, both SQLite and SQL are supported.
Gmod by default uses a flat 'sqlite' file..aptly named as aaron mentions, sv.db.
I believe this addon uses it by default.

yeah I don't remember exactly but I think if you want MySQL stuff you have to flip a switch in config.lua or something like that.

Sorry for bumping this old? thread but, for some reason I don't get any tag.
I can use the commands (!title, mytitle, settitle...) but the tag/title doesn't appear.


Thanks in advance,
Tom
