Timer + APM on server
« on: August 10, 2021, 05:08:06 PM »
Just maked game timer on server
press F6 in game to open settings menu

you can change:
1) position of timer (or disable it)
2) color
3) type of timer
   a) slow ticks (divided by 100)
   b) real ticks (first 2 number goes very fast though)
   c) seconds (game ticks are being converted to seconds)

my plans for future:
1) make APM counter too
2) something else but now i dnt know wat
3) something that YOU (yes you!) advised me to make. (so i wating for your opinions)

for ally chat

Ctrl+Enter - message to allies.
Shift+Enter - message to all.

Special hotkey for say hello to watchers - nonsense

So in the dry residue we have:
msg to allies, except watchers
that may be useful

I liked the timer. Not sure why use ticks but is good that can be simple changed to seconds.

The only problem was that I see I died before 2 minutes of game, how this is possible? ,Rushers!

updated

1) timer now disabled by default (use menu to enable)
2) specialy for u8 maked that menu opens not only with F6, but also with little button left from gold icon (and right from pause button).
3) timer settings saved into file. So you can setup only one time and they will be same even after you rj server or even reload game.

future plans:
1) still thinking about how to make APM counter
2) dunno

Thats the color i talk to you mistral, check this thread, scroll down and watch the screenshot, would be amazing if we can have that color instead of pink aka black.

Because let's be honnest, this green color must be the best of all lol

I dont think we can use that color on forest setting.

And this is way too complicated for slow brain like me.

Also you see that swamp tilt sett, that would be cool if you can switch those mushroom for threes...

I know im crazy, but you want ideas lol.

Because this tilt sett is super nice, but the mushroom ruin everything, so if we can switch threes for mushroom that would be amazing.

Here's a suggestion to improve the game immensely - can we take away the war latency messages at the start of each game?

I realize you also add a timer wich is pretty nice, but i think it would be better if the timers start when you build the first building, will be better for peoples whos move from position.

Exemple 8 to s9, 6 to s6 or going to middle.

Because timers kinda false if you move.

Second thing, i already had a yellow timers from lambchop, how do i remove it?

Just remove plugin from folder.
But you can use them both if you want))
Cuz hes time counting seconds with system clock time.
And my timer counting game ticks and then converts them to sec.
And one important thing is that my timer stops when game pause but plugin timer going always

8 to s9

The meaning of this timer is just to designate the exact time from the beginning of the game.
So if you go 8 -> 9s - it shows how far you are behind someone born at 12.

Ticks is even more good - it shows comparable timings at any speed (F, EF, same ticks count for build farm etc)

this green color

Well, I can make a special  patch with green "black" for all tilesets.

But for this you need some things:

1. Most important:
a) you stop blaming iL or any other admins,
b) and stop crying nonsense about MPQ, because you do not understand how it works.
(...waiting for your confirmation)


2. Using Tilesets where the green will be bad to distinguish on minimap you will need one of these plugins:
a) minimap_black.w2p
it just turn black to gray at minimap (bad thing it can not be disabled on the fly)

b) allied_color.w2p (mod attached)
by pressing Ins key you switch regular minimap colors to special:
allies - blue
enemy - orange, which is well noticeable on any tileset
