Help with Scoreboard Script

Recommended Posts

Hello. I've been attempting to modify the scoreboard so that when a moderator/admin logs in, they're automatically assigned the region/flag of the country specified in the Lua script.

addEventHandler("onPlayerLogin", root,
	function(thePlayer, command)
		local player_account = getPlayerAccount(thePlayer)
		if not player_account then
			return false
		end
		local account_name = getAccountName(player_account)
		if not isObjectInACLGroup("user."..account_name, aclGetGroup("Admin")) and isObjectInACLGroup("user."..account_name, aclGetGroup("Moderator")) then
			return false
		end
		local img = ":admin/client/images/flags/us.png"
        local country_code = "US"
		setElementData(thePlayer, "Country", {img, country_code})
		return true
	end
)

Unfortunately, I seem to be getting an error on the third line:

"Bad argument @ 'getPlayerAccount' [Expected element at argument 1, got account]. Can anyone offer any advice on what's going wrong here? Making it a command handler instead of an event handler seems to work, for some reason, but I need it to be on logon rather than through player command.

Hy! If you look at the Wiki page of onPlayerLogin, It shows that this gives you the current and previous account as arguments, meaning you don't have to getPlayerAccount, because you already get It from the event.

Command handler works because It provides you a player instead of an account, so you have to get the account.

Thanks so much for your help! I hate to ask again, but I'm still a bit confused as to where to go from here, as removing those lines still seems to present another error:

addEventHandler("onPlayerLogin", root,
	function(thePlayer, command)
		local account_name = getAccountName(player_account)
		if not isObjectInACLGroup("user."..account_name, aclGetGroup("Admin")) and isObjectInACLGroup("user."..account_name, aclGetGroup("Moderator")) then
			return false
		end
		local img = ":admin/client/images/flags/us.png"
        local country_code = "US"
		setElementData(thePlayer, "Country", {img, country_code})
		return true
	end
)

 This now gives me an error on the 4th line: "attempt to concatenate local 'account_name' (a boolean value). Any ideas?

Wrong parameters in function - read carefully - https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/OnPlayerLogin

source is your player who logged in, replace thePlayer with previous_account and command with current_account

Then on line 3, you need to pass current_account.

Good luck.
