really cool Mr. President. Karam for you.

In most cases I do not make addons for people. You may ask, and I may or may not accept, paying me will not change the answer if it was no. Feel free to try.

MrPresident is there anyway to get this working with steamid, would be really helpful for the automatic donation system and would love to use this on my server but atm I have no need for it unless it was done by the steamid rather than just the username.

Yeah, I will have to figure out a way to convert steamids into the 64 bit steamids which I know is possible with some math. Then this could be a possibility. Just don't expect it for a while. I don't plan on doing any more work until after my surgery in a few days,

Thanks for the reply, nice to hear youll look into sorting it out and I hope you do figure it out because it would be a nice feature and will more than likely attract more users to this addon. Thanks again and I hope your surgery goes to plan!

Regards,
Dave

Suggestion:

Option to temp add user until they disconnect.

Never thought about using entity numbers. Thanks.

I got error at line 40

Code: [Select]
if os.time() >= exptime then
Failed to compare string with nubmer

What the reason of this?

You are sure that is the right line? Neither one of those should be a string.

os.time() is an integer

and exptime is also an integer.

Hmm, it's not working for me. Does it not work with Entities?

Code: [Select]
attempt to call method 'SetUserGroup' (a nil value)

Without going into too many details, a player is-a entity (inheritance relationship). Are you sure you're using the right entity number? They'll always be in the range 1-<max players>.

Yeah, I'm aware of the player-entity relationship, just thought for a moment it might've not counted here.

And it doesn't work whatever way I do it:

Code: [Select]
Entity(ply:EntIndex()):SetUserGroup("superadmin")
Code: [Select]
print(Entity(1):GetName()) -- prints my nick correctly
Entity(1):SetUserGroup("superadmin") -- error

Works for me. Something's wrong in your Lua environment, perhaps?

Code: [Select]
lua_run print(Entity(1))
> print(Entity(1))...
Player [1][[ULX]Megiddo]
lua_run Entity(1):SetUserGroup("superadmin")
> Entity(1):SetUserGroup("superadmin")...
