STALKER's Tools 1.1b (1.12 in progress) (currently ON HOLD)

Post by Terron » 16 Oct 2010 17:04

Hi all,
finally I completed my plugin for XASECO and I want to make it public 8)
No more fake-chat commands, version 1.1 has also sorted source code and added comments.

OVERVIEW:
You can find here these commands (use /st as prefix):
help - show avalible commands, usage: /st help.
fwdpms - forwards all PMs to you, usage: /st fwdpms <on/off/permanent>.
chatall - show Full chat history, usage: /st chatall [page].
cc - clear chatlog/chatall, usage: /st cc [all].
ce - exports chatlog to txt file, usage: /st ce <filename> <all>, use /st ce for more informations.
ignore - hide chat panel for specified login, usage: /st ignore <login> [minutes].
unignore - show chat panel for specified login, usage: /st unignore <login>.
listignores - show chat-disabled players list, usage: /st listignores.
cleanignores - clean chat-disabled players list, usage: /st cleanignores.
fstate - force player state, usage: /st fstate <ID> <state> [targetID [camera]] , use /st fstate for more informations.
fstates - list of forced-state players, usage: /st fstates.
specme - force player to spec you, usage: /st specme <login>.
vote - start custom callvote, usage: /st vote "<message> [:pass_cmd[:failcmd" [timeout [ratio]].
<> - compulsory parameter.
[] - optional parameter.

INCLUDES:
My Action IDs plugin that assigns an ID to some actions (required for my custom admin panel).
My Extended chatlog plugin.
My customized AdminBelowChat panel - more buttons.

FEATURES:
Admin protection against Kick/Ban callvotes.
Manialink windows are closed on challende end or challenge begin to avoid empty manialink windows.
All manialinks are hidden on XASECO shutdown (already exists in XASECO 1.12).
FuFi menu integration.
Disabled forced music on XASECO shutdown.

INSTALLATION:
Unpack into XASECO root directory.
Add this line to your plugins.xml

Code: Select all

<plugin>stalker.tools.php</plugin>
Now Action IDs is included in STALKER's Tools so don't list it in plugins.xml !
Now restart XASECO and it should work :thumbsup:

REQUIREMENTS:
This plugin requires XASECO 1.11 or newer.

RESTRICTIONS:
If you want to use this plugin, you have to disable my Extended chatlog (if you are using it) because it is already included in my tools.
This plugin is usable only by MasterAdmins.

DOWNLOAD:
STALKER's Tools

If you find a bug, please report it here and I will try fix it.

You're making it too easy for people to post fake messages/exec commands. Do you really want to enable people to chat as if they were someone else? Do you have any idea how much trouble that can cause?

Why the hell would you do such a thing?

I strongly recommend NOBODY download this abhorrent code.

Terron's disclaimer that this is available only to MasterAdmins holds some merit, but I agree that much of this plugin is a bad idea taken way too far. Monitoring chat and PMs in-game (instead of the log file, which should suffice) is one thing, but generating fake messages (beyond the already existing capabilities of the Jfreu plugin), fake PMs and even local records is absurd. Which MasterAdmin is megalomaniac enough to want to do this on his own server?? A MasterAdmin's job is to nurture his server and let his players race, not mess with them.

Duplication of XAseco's built-in shutdown command is also pointless. Without the faking and player-forcing commands and that duplication, I would not have much of a problem with this plugin though, but then there's not much left.

Abhorrent though it may be, at the very least in the formatting department (it seems tabs and spaces were on a budget while writing this :wink: ), I'm not sure what the effect of deleting this thread would be. The code has been written and released, and a general rule on the Internet is that once something is out in the wild, you can never take it off again. And more ethically, should this plugin be censored?

So what do other people think about this plugin? Does it deserve a place in the spectrum of XAseco plugins, or is this one crossing a boundary that nobody else but "Big Brother" Terron wants crossed?

i wont use it at any of my servers anyway :) there was another plugin/function in the past. faking the records, also some players faked donations. this might be funny for the one who do it. but not for others, wondering about what happens here. checking logs to double check there is no mailfunction etc.

i wont use it, just to avoid work for me, and confused regular players.

I still don't like the idea that your Private Messages are also sent to the MasterAdmin(s).
If (s)he really needs to know, he can look in de Aseco log.

Clearly this plugin is useless for most, apart from paranoid megalomaniac admins or ops, and i think should be deleted :lol:
