Dynamic erode server setting

Postby Lnxa » Thu Dec 07, 2017 1:49 am

Could you make it so the erode number automatically changes based on how many people are in the server? Would be great for qualifying servers where an admin isn't in the server 24/7 to change the erode number.

Wouldn't be too hard to make a script do that and it'd probably be a good idea for a fun server. Wouldn't qualifying with erode on be a terrible idea though?

Here's an attempt at the script (for bash). Not tested at all.

Code: Select all

password=myserverspassword
lineupfile=lineup
while sleep 60
do
    count=$(wc -l <${lineupfile})
    erode=$((count > 35 ? 5 : 40 - count))
    echo -e x${password}erode $erode >/dev/udp/127.0.0.1/19800
done
