Off-Topic / Steam sale 2017
« Last post by JamminR on Yesterday at 04:56:06 PM »
Now, you likely all know that Steam is having a sale.
And, as I attempt to browse the store, I'm depressed.

Steam has gone down hill in the past few years for several reasons.
It's filled with too much trash.

I can't find games I'm interested in, even when I reduce my search using filters, those filters really aren't all that helpful to me because they rely on end user's sometimes garbage data input.
I find no way to use negative filters.
I can't find a way using the Steam client list games under $5.
And when I go to the web to do it, THERE ARE 384 pages.

Price points are much too high.
Games I wouldn't pay $5 for are now an average of $9.99 and 'on sale' for 50% off.
Seems I remember, even a few short years ago some of the games I put on my wishlist for ~$7.99 and would have bought on sale for less than 5 are now $4.99 on sale.

I managed to find some fun games using 3rd party website articles regarding 'gem' titles on sale.
I shouldn't have to rely on 3rd party sites. Sure, optional, but shouldn't be required.

Yes. I'm cheap, but it seems the UI experience of Steam just isn't what I remember from some years ago.
Especially since it seems a 5 year old can throw some code together and have it on Steam.

Thank you so much for this script. I have been looking for something like this for a long time and now I have it.

That script does work to some extent:

If I attack someone for 5 damage and my opponent has 1 HP remaining. -> Opponent does not take damage.
If I attack someone for 5 damage and my opponent has 2 HP remaining. -> Opponent dies because of damage.

Problem is that ply:Health() returns the player’s health before damage is taken.

Suggestion: check if the damage is lethal instead.

Tip #1: You can get damage info and suppress damage with the GM:EntityTakeDamage hook.

Tip #2: Example of how to use the hook to detect and suppress lethal damage:
Code: Lua
  1. hook.Add( "EntityTakeDamage", "SurrenderHook", function ( target, dmg )
  2.     if target:Health() <= dmg:GetDamage() then
  3.         -- TODO: Strip player
  4.         -- TODO: Apply slowness
  5.         ply:SetHealth( 1 )
  6.         return true -- Suppress lethal damage
  7.     end
  8. end )

I am trying to make a script that will force a player to be stripped and slowed when their health is lower than 1, I want to also make it so when they are healed up they will then receive all their weapons back. I have some of it but it doesn't seem to identify the player is less than a certain health amount and stop them taking damage.

Code: Lua
  2. local surrenderTeams = {
  3.         [TEAM_CADET]=true,
  4. }
  6. hook.Add("PlayerShouldTakeDamage","SurrenderHook",function( ply, att )
  8.         if surrenderTeams[ply:Team()] then
  10.                 if ply:Health() <= 1 then
  12.                         ply:SetHealth(1)
  13.                         ply:SetWalkSpeed(100)
  14.                         ply:SetRunSpeed(100)
  15.                         ply:SetCrouchedWalkSpeed(100)
  16.                         return false
  18.                 end
  20.         end
  22. end)
Honestly, if they can't learn not to abuse powers, remove them.
Money should not guarantee pardon.

But, it is an educational answer.
 o ulx userdeny <player> <command> [<remove explicit allow or deny instead of outright denying: 0/1>] - Remove from a user's access.
 o ulx userdenyid <SteamID, IP, or UniqueID> <command> [<remove explicit allow or deny instead of outright denying: 0/1>] - Remove from a user's access.

From server console, you can use
Code: [Select]
ulx userdeny Tom "ulx kick"There's a way to do it in XGUI, but my apologies, I'm not taking the time to load it.

Hello, I have a quick question I'd like someone to answer it for me, please.

Let's pretend we have a donator called Tom. Donators have access to the kick command, but Tom has apparently been abusing it. But the other donators seem to be using the command in a fair way. With this being said, I'd like to know if Tom could have his kick permission revoked without losing the entire rank completely.

Is there a possibility to do this? I saw that there's something called "Restrict player(s)" so I tried entering Steam ID's and it didn't work.

What I sent you was a hook. You need to set it up like a hook.

JamminR gave you an example.

Okay, so ive tried implementing it like this:

         if pl:Team() == TEAM_HUNTERS then
            rand_taunt = table.Random(PHE.HUNTER_TAUNTS)
            rand_taunt = table.Random(PHE.PROP_TAUNTS)
                                GM:PlayerStartTaunt(ply, length)
                                ply:PS_Notify("You've been awarded " .. length .. " Points for taunting!")

but that made it so the taunt via f3 stopped working. What am i doing wrong here? do i need to define the length for every possibilty or did i miss something?
