Matchmodes.txt Generator 9000
« on: July 29, 2013, 06:35:56 pm »
Hello,

I've created a handy little tool that should interest most server owners. The way matchmodes is done now is semi-tedious and not very user friendly. With the help of Tabun, Artifacial, and Estoopi, I've come up with a matchmodes.txt generator. Simply select the configs you run on your server and click go, and it will spit out a nicely formatted matchmodes.txt file for you! If you need to add more, just click the add more button and two new fields will appear. Friendly name is what will show up in the !match menu, CFG name is the folder name inside /cfgogl/.

edit: If you have a config you'd like me to list as default just lemme know and I'll add it in. The plan in time is to make this a one-stop-shop config hub where you can download each of the configs listed. Gonna need to get in contact with a few config creators to make sure we keep everything maintained easy.

Enjoy!

Look epi, noone has bothered doing productive things like adding defib paddles or Orca-skinned tanks to promod lately, would you stop fiddling around and get back to work?    :D

somehow it does not work. the configs have no names.

when I add "name" in front of the configs name it works.. ?
additionally only the 1v1 configs are not displayed at all in matchmenu?

I don't know what you're doing wrong... it works fine here! I just tested again; I selected everything and added a couple test ones, and all configs came out the right way and in the right places.

I do nothing wrong., your generator generates the txt like this:

"MatchModes"
{

    "4v4"
    {
        "promod"
        {
            "Pro Mod"
        }
        "promodhr"
        {
            "Pro Mod HR"
        }
        "hunters"
        {
            "Hunters"
        }
        "retro"
        {
            "Retro"
        }
        "parity"
        {
            "Parity"
        }
    }


when I change it to:

"MatchModes"
{
   "4v4"
   {
      "promod"
      {
         "name" "Pro Mod"
      }
      "promodhr"
      {
         "name" "Pro Mod HR"
      }
      "parity"
      {
         "name" "Parity"
      }
      "retro"
      {
         "name" "Retro"
      }
      "hunters"
      {
         "name" "Hunters"
      }
   }


it works...
