Hi,

hopefully someone here can help me.
We are trying to install the druidsplayeragreement but somehow nobody is able to get it running.

Could someone please check the documentation within the package if there is maybe a misspelling or so ? There are already a few post in the Atariforums that nobody was able to get it running...

Any tips or tricks ?

in the UT2004.ini file in the [Engine.GameEngine] section you have to add

ServerActors=DruidsPlayerAgreement.PlayerAgreementServerActor
ServerPackages=DruidsPlayerAgreement

Then in the System/PlayerAgreement.ini file should look something like this:

[DruidsPlayerAgreement.PlayerAgreementManager]
Agreement=Some rules you want|and some others on another line.
TimeStamp=11-23-2004
Timeout=300
YesButtonEnableTime=25

This was copied directly from the configuration on my server... Let me know if you have other issues with it. I'll take a look a the readme when I have a chance.

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

Did not work for me, tried that already.

There is also a long thread on the Atari Forum about that. Someone said that the DruidsPlayersAgreement.int is missing ?!?

Maybe you could clear up something there

It's a server actor so it's not a mutator, so it doesn't have a .int or .ucl file.

My knee jerk reaction as to why this isn't working is the line break difference on linux and windows systems... (\n and \r\n)

Give this a try...

  1. roll your PlayerAgreement.ini up and smoke it.

  2. With the text editor of your choosing, cut and paste the text about what should be in the INI from the previous post

  3. just for sanity's sake, make sure that the UT2004.ini contains the right stuff

  4. Start your server and watch the console.
    You should see in the colsole ScriptLog: PAM: Using Druids Player Agreement

  5. When someone joins the server, you should see this in the console:
    ScriptLog: PAM: Requesting PlayerAgreement from: Some_Player_Name:Some_Global_Id

Thanks, will try when I finished work.

One another thing: Is the agreement appearing before or after downloads starting ?

I don't believe it can appear before the download is complete since it hasn't downloaded yet, however, it's not inconceivable that it is working that way...

That's why I'm suggesting that you watch the server log and see..

If a player doesn't answer yes within the timeout period, the player agreement manager assumes they answered no and kicks them from the server, noting in the log that they answered no...

I just glanced on the atari forums and it sounds like you got it working. I'll have to check the readme and see if it's off.

I was just wondering.

Is that right that the message will be displayed just once ?

If so, I just changed the agreement but it is still not displayed ?!?

Any idea what I can do ?

You also need to update the timestamp variable. Once you update the timestamp, everyone who's timestamp doesn't match the current timestamp will be forced to agree again.

Just a difference I noticed......

your readme.txt says :
ServerActor=DruidsPlayerAgreement
ServerPackage=DruidsPlayerAgreement


All of the other items in the ini are:
ServerActors=whatever
ServerPackages=whatever
