heys!

i'd like to leave here a request too :P

it's fine for me as it is, but some users prefer to have the panel hidden. in Dedimania we have a button to close/open. is it possible to add it to your plugin also?

tks!

I think, I found a small bug. The position of the one in front of me is one to high (at "close to you records"). In my example it should be 10. instead of 9., I think.

still the same as in 98.lb whitch means :
for the moment its an overall ranking from all maps ever played on the server with this plugin
maxtop is maximum points default 100.. that means top1 = 100pts top2 = 99pts ...top100 = 1pts but...
if there are only 10 records for the track top1 = 10pts top2 = 9pts......

soon there will be an aditional local ladder display, ranking the players by current trackselection (like other record tools do ^^)
also maybe a setting for min recs requiered to score for a track so if there are no 3 records for the track, nobody gets nuttin...
and a little maintainance section to recalculate the scores or rebuild the playerfile could also be quite usefull.... but not all at once :pil :D

hi mcm,

I have little custom your plugin just for show all locals records to all players in the chat. Some players and me want that so i did it. Now it use differente color than dedimania, possible to custom it like all want.

Little screen:

So if someone want it, i made a french and english version in the same zip. just choose FR or EN plugin.

The screen's colors are not by default in zip, it's just at the player to custom it as he want. by default dedimania use white color and local use grey color. there is a read me for custom as he want.

Plugin.mcm.localdbf.custom= http://dl.free.fr/jzpK80RwE/plugin.mcm. ... custom.rar

Again thanks to Slig for fast and his help.
And thanks to you for your plugin :)

PS: sorry for my bad english :D

nice LeTo! thanks :)

about the plugin, anyone having problems in Rounds mode? in Rounds the Server Ladder isn't working :(

at the end of each round, when the points are distributed by the players, the localrecs plugin disappears and appears again at the beginning of the next round. Could this be the problem? In TA mode i don't have problems. i used also the 98lb with localrecs, and it was imported to this one.

tks

hello again :lol:

Local > you drove TOP 284 record : 00:33.97

wasn't it supposed to take only the top 100 on each track? will i have performance issues in the future because of the excessive records? :ftw:

tks!

ok in roundsmode the recordspanel dissapiers when first player finishes and it will show the scorepanel on same position, so it goes and comes ;)
and yes it scores only top 100 but display is unlimited :) (for players personal motivation)
for the performance : who knows?... i have tested it with 2500 records per track and had no issues...
but if there are some issues in the future, its not difficult to restrict the max amount of records per track...
it also could be an option for setting.....for now it quite interresting to see someone drive his TOP 937 record ;)

hi MCM,

I would like to customize 2 things:

1st: in the chat i'd rather display the server name instead of " local> "
2nd: instead of " local records " in the main records pannel, I'd like to display "server_name records"

just tell me wich lines i have to modify in witch files.

many thanks

its in the locale.localdbf.xx.xml.txt

Code: Select all

			<!-- The labels -->
			<localdbf.mainlabel>Local Records</localdbf.mainlabel>
			<!-- Chat outputs -->
			<localdbf.record.top_prefix>$z$i$s$ccc$nLocal $cc0> $fff$z</localdbf.record.top_prefix>
you could also create a locale.localdbf.custom.xml.txt with something like the following which would replace the message label for english and german

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<fast>
	<locale>

		<en>			
			<!-- The labels -->
			<localdbf.mainlabel>Your Text for the hud part in english</localdbf.mainlabel>

			<!-- Chat outputs -->
			<localdbf.record.top_prefix>$z$i$s$ccc$nYour chat prefix for records $cc0> $fff$z</localdbf.record.top_prefix>
		</en>

		<de>
			<!-- The labels -->
			<localdbf.mainlabel>Deine Überschrift für die Anzeige</localdbf.mainlabel>

			<!-- Chat outputs -->
			<localdbf.record.top_prefix>$z$i$s$ccc$nDeine Anzeige für den Chat $cc0> $fff$z</localdbf.record.top_prefix>
		</de>
	
	</locale>
</fast>

hi mcm

I copied the locale.localdbf.en.xml.txt file and rename it in locale.localdbf.fr.xml.txt
I edited this file to translate english in french
I also changed tag "<en>" in "<fr>" at the begin and end of file
I restarted fast but all are always in english

Is your plugging can read fr file? whats wrong? :?
