Staffchat

Hey guys

I'm looking for a chat where only people from the ACL group ''Staff'' can talk in.

They can only use the chat, and they can only read the chat.

I'd like to get the command /s (staffchat).

The reason is that it's annoying to start up the staff panel and press Admin Chat to talk with staff only.

That's why I'm requesting this chat command.

Thanks in advance!

Marty

(Please tell me if it's client sided or server! ;) )

First of all; it's a server sided script. No need to do this client sided, there's actually no easy way to do this. You'll have to set data if someone is staff or not and all that crap.

To make it easy, just create a loop trough all the players and see if they are in the ACL group "staff", then output the message. To use the command, they should also be in the group. A small example;

addCommandHandler ( "staffchat", 
    fuction ( thePlayer, _, ... ) 
        if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( thePlayer, "staff" ) ) then 
            for i, p in ipairs ( getElementsByType ( "player" ) ) do 
                if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( p, "staff" ) ) then 
                    outputChatBox ( "[staff] ".. getPlayerName ( p ) ..": ".. table.concat({...}, " "), p, 0, 0, 120 ) 
                end 
            end 
        end 
    end 
)

addCommandHandler ( "staffchat", 
    fuction ( thePlayer, _, ... ) 
        if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( "user."..getAccountName(getPlayerAccount(thePlayer)), "staff" ) ) then 
            for i, p in ipairs ( getElementsByType ( "player" ) ) do 
                if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( "user."..getAccountName(getPlayerAccount(p)) "staff" ) ) then 
                    outputChatBox ( "[staff] ".. getPlayerName ( p ) ..": ".. table.concat({...}, " "), p, 0, 0, 120 ) 
                end 
            end 
        end 
    end 
) 
  

If your nick wouldn't be acc could create problems.

why "getPlayerName(p)" this will write the name of admin players its "getPlayerName (thePlayer)" ?

function not fuction

  
addCommandHandler ( "staffchat", 
    function ( thePlayer, _, ... ) 
        if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( "user."..getAccountName(getPlayerAccount(thePlayer)), "staff" ) ) then 
            for i, p in ipairs ( getElementsByType ( "player" ) ) do 
                if ( isObjectInACLGroup ( "user."..getAccountName(getPlayerAccount(p)) "staff" ) ) then 
                    outputChatBox ( "[staff] ".. getPlayerName ( thePlayer ) ..": ".. table.concat({...}, " "), p, 0, 0, 120 ) 
                end 
            end 
        end 
    end 
)
