Exclamation Reverting to v3.0.6
Posted by: NeoAssassin - 02-01-2018, 08:52 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Due to the many new issues caused by the v3.0.7 update, we've had to revert to v3.0.6 for the time being until these issues are properly fixed. We're very sorry for the inconvenience that the v3.0.7 update has caused, and we appreciate your patience while we resolve these issues.


What about v3.0.7?
We're currently working on yet another overhaul to the code in order to fix the issues with v3.0.7, as well as (hopefully) some of the other issues that we've been unable to fix in the last few patches.

We estimate that this will likely take around 3 weeks, but this is just an estimate. It could end up taking longer than that, since we're basically starting from scratch again with a fresh code base and leaving the HL2MP portion untouched this time.


Achievements
This revert will cause all map related achievements to be unobtainable during this time.

The reason for this is because we're reverting the binaries (client.dll and server.dll), but keeping the map updates. Since those map achievements have been changed to function differently in v3.0.7, they'll no longer work properly with this revert to v3.0.6.

This sucks, we know - but it's much better than dealing with all the new glitches that popped up. You'll be able to get these achievements again once we release v3.0.8.

  zpo_shreddingfield
Posted by: ninja_muffin_ - 01-17-2018, 06:23 PM - Forum: Level - Replies (1)

The one blue door in the basement of the gun store seems to have a player clip to prevent people from glitching/griefing the door. Problem is this clip does not resent properly on new round start so people can lean against the door. The issue here is that this basement door might have a push trigger which can push survivors into walls or the ground nearby resulting them being stuck and burn to death. 

Orphanage's idea is to let the door open towards survivors and of course adding a hurt trigger on that door for those who try to block it (maybe 5 hp per sec).

Other idea would be to add cades similar to those on Corpsington so survivors have to break them instead waiting for the door to open on its own. Problem would be to set the strength of those cades corretly so the time to break them equals the current door timer.

Posted by: XeroX - 01-15-2018, 03:26 PM - Forum: Plugins - Replies (4)

Simple Anti High Ping plugin which kicks player whos ping is above the set limit.

Installation:

Extract the zip file inside your /zps/data/scripts/plugins folder

Add the plugin to the default_plugins.txt

Code:
    "plugin"
    {

        "script"    "anti_high_ping/ahp"
    }



New with 1.0.2 - Configuration File

With the new update the plugin will (if it doesn't exist) automatically create a file in zps/data/custom/ called anti_high_ping.zpdata (file can be opend with any text editor such as notepad or notepad++) alternatively you can manually create the file and use this code for the default settings:


Code:

  HUD Messages on screen
Posted by: Orphanage - 01-14-2018, 01:38 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

This was discussed in Discord earlier, but I am adding it here to see if community approves this idea or not, as well as keeping this message as reminder to developers.
The point of this message is because there is seem to be barely anyone who actually read gameplay hints whenever connecting to the server, not to mention that manual itself.

"You received X item from Y player"
This is one of the things I'd like to add in game because there is still some people who do not pay attention to their Heads Up Display, especially when it comes to their ammo.

An example:
Player 1 asks for pistol ammo.
Player 2 got some pistol ammo, comes close to Player 1, aims at him and presses his "Drop ammo" button.
Player 1 receives ammo and a message on his screen that Player 2 gave you pistol ammo.

The same thing would be also useful for sharing a weapon. Obviously, instead of "...gave you * ammo.", you get "...gave you *weapon name*."

Press * button to do * action.
This might be better off to stay for tutorial map(if there is any planned to be implemented), but this could be somewhat useful for newcomers. Obviously, these messages should display only once or maybe twice and no more.
In general, if player boots up a game for first time, the code should prepare few hints when he joins to server for first time.

For example:
"Press crouch+jump to perform crouch jumping, if you want to jump over this obstacle" on FrozenHeart.
or
Player 1 asks for pistol ammo but player 2 doesnt know how to share. Game could tell a player to press this button to select ammo type(the ammo HUD could glow with outline a bit, to point out that this is an ammo hud and you are using it rightnow) and press another button to drop ammo. Can also add an sentence that if you stay close to person who asked for ammo, he can share it directly.
or
A reminder about panic button, if he sees lots of zombies but his ammo is obviously low.
or
Using barricade hammer. 
Sometimes, players asks others how to use barricade hammer(doesnt matter what exactly they wants to do with it). Game could tell a player what buttons to press in order to use hammer. This should happen whenever player draws a barricade hammer and holds it for mere 2 seconds.
or
Whenever Survivor is exhausted(low\no stamina). The game could tell a player to press and hold(or simply press it, depending on his ZP settings) to walk, so he can slowly restore stamina or stand still to restore stamina as well. Game could also highlight the stamina bar with outline, to show off his stamina bar and his current status of movement(walking\running).

or whatever else you have on your mind...

Bug name:
Floating item near PD car.

Where it happens?
zps_blackout, near trunk of police car.

Does it affect anyone?
No.

How to reproduce:
Simply start up zps_blackout and get outside, head to the trunk of PD car and watch your right. You should be able to notice floating item(armor\medkit\pills\barricade hammer) just like that. I would assume this item should spawn inside of PD car but instead, it spawns outside and floats around.

Screenshot:
