ClientCommand working for +lookatweapon but not +jump?

Hi, I'll show the code first as it explains the issue immediately: @ClientCommand('+lookatweapon') def on_lookatweapon(command, player_index): print('Yup, works') @ClientCommand('+jump') def on_jump(command, player_index): print(...

Re: EasyPlayer

I've chosen not to implement caching as I believe one should be using PlayerDictionary anyways, and subclassing to enable caching should be trivial. I've also attempted to use model_header for the hitboxes, but only managed to do so for the pelvis bone (index 0), as all other bones seem to have nons...

Re: EasyPlayer

Thanks for the feedback, I'll be fixing the issues shortly!

Why should I use caching though? Isn't that what PlayerDictionary is for?

Re: Is it possible to use the newer style radio menus?

This isn't something I know how to do myself, so I'm just throwing ideas here, but couldn't we just show the menu client side and then react to different radio commands differently on the server? Nobody uses the radio commands anyways, just block them and do something else entirely :grin: Maybe you ...

Is it possible to use the newer style radio menus?

I mean these: https://i.imgur.com/8Q2ok1v.jpg

Is it possible to create custom menus like this for our mods?

Haven't been updating the thread for a while as I don't think many other people are using the package, but EasyPlayer has since been updated to v2.1.1 and has a lot of new stuff, including easier event management: player_dict = PlayerDictionary(easyplayer.Player) # Can be your own custom Pla...

Hi, how often should I create a new TempEntity instance? Say I'm creating a skill for an RPG mod and want to draw a laser beam between two people to indicate extra damage. I see three options: ⋅  Create a new TempEntity for every player_hurt event and only cache the models ⋅  Cre...

Re: Creating a BeamRingPoint?

I did have to use a different sprite, though (I used sprites/laser.vmt , since sprites/lghtning.vmt did not work on either of my tests). What game are you testing this on? I am testing on CS:S. Using sprites/laserbeam.vmt did the trick finally, neither lgtning nor laser worked for me. On CS:GO. Tha...

Re: Improving LangStrings and TranslationStrings to be less restrictive

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think that's quite what I'm after. Your example has three valid translatable strings being merged, while my example is about constructing a string on-the-fly from existing strings and data. Here's what my example would look like if put into an INI file... [Skill Upg...

Re: Improving LangStrings and TranslationStrings to be less restrictive

Right, my example was idiotic, what I meant is creating a TranslationString and pre-filling some TranslationStrings in without providing all of them. So in the solution you provided, I would like to pre-fill level_str and cost_str with existing TranslationStrings (to get a global message instance th...

Re: Improving LangStrings and TranslationStrings to be less restrictive

If you pass a TranslationStrings instance as a token, it will automatically translate it for the current language I could have sworn that it didn't work when I tried this yesterday :confused: Thanks though, that solves a lot of my problems. And assuming it's recursive, then basically that's already...

Improving LangStrings and TranslationStrings to be less restrictive

Hi, I understand the motivation is to have a uniform style for all plugins, but as it stands the LangStrings and TranslationStrings classes are both lacking and restricting. I've highlighted some of the key points I have in mind: ⋅  LangStrings attempts to always load from TRANSLATION_PATH...
