Default Re: Server Wishlist (command line options)

I'm not sure this thread is being used. My feeling is that Gandalf can best get things sorted by talking to JK, JK's already done everything that I wanted, and few other people will really need any extra features that neither of us wanted.

Permission to unsticky?

I figure that its percentage of use is about right when compared with the other wishlists. The general game wishlist would be most active, then modding, then maps, and finally server the least. But there should be wishlists. The alternative might be a single wishlist sticky which links to the various singular wishlists then unsticky all the singular ones.

Yeah, well I agree in principle that there should be one, but no-one that isn't a moderator has posted in almost two years. We'd probably be better to have it in the moderator's forum.

Default CountDownOnly Command Line Request

-countdownonly

The timer can be set for the game to host, and the timer will countdown (and even go negative). However, the game will only quickhost or manually host. AKA when all turns are in.

I think that last one already exists doesn't it? You don't seem to actually mean countdown-only, but rather quickhost-only? Even if not you can't already do it, you can set the timer for an arbitrarily long time so that it comes to the same thing.

Maybe he wants the timer to display, but not kick off the hosting. Kindof a more friendly reminder feature.

The closest I can think of to doing it would be on a server. The game status page can reflect a time but the game-run itself not have one on it.

My game status script shows negative hosting time if a turn takes longer to host than it has been set to take in the configuration. Unless you reset the "last modified" timestamp on the fatherlnd file, that is.

Yeah, your game scripts are great.
