Does anyone have a copy of a BannedClients.lua which has been populated with one or more ucid or ips?

I would like to manually add some clients to a ban list, but I am unsure of the formatting.

 

Should be something like this where for nickname1 you have both ips and ucid in the list since it was done in game trough admin menu. nickname2 and 3 added manually later on ( remember you have to do with non running server or i think it will be replaced by the "cached" one on server close/reboot ( or at least I prefer to edit on dcs not running since I'm paranoiac sys admin.

 

slmod_banned_ips =

["name"] = "Nickname1",
["bannedBy"] =

["ucid"] = "myUCID_524cblablablablablabla",

Hi,

is SLmod compatible with Moose/Mist scripts ? So, Can I run both on my missions/ded server ?

Simulatori: DCS A-10C Warthog - DCS F/A-18C Hornet - VRS F/A-18E - Falcon BMS
HOTAS: TM Warthog - Cougar Oculus Rift S I see a rainbow rising, look there, on the horizon...

Tally: I see the degenerate commie who wants to ruin our day.

Yes it is compatible. Slmod in some ways was a precursor to mist and for access to the scripting engine in general, so it does have some scripting functions available in the mission environment. Most if not all of those functions are now part of mist.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

Installing SLMod onto a server running 3 separate virtual servers, and we get a error message as follows:

 

{string "slmod sendData0"]:1: attempt to index global "slmod" (is a nil value)

stack trackback:

[C]:?

string "slmod.sendData)"]:1: in main chunk

 

Do you know how we fix it?

The solution, we discovered through the error log is that DCS needs to be run in admin mode.   Once we did that, it worked perfectly.

Build 143 pushed to develop branch. 

 

Added: option for json stats export
  - It is a simple boolean setting in the config that when enabled will save a copy in json format of the main, penalty, campaign, and mission stats whenever one of this is opened. 
Added: Stats writing buffer. This will reduce the amount of writes to the stats file, but will have a slight delay from when the event occurred to when it is written. 
Fixed: Dakka in Huey and Mi-8 naming for multicrew seats
Fixed: Multicrew defs and auto generation of multicrew seats for unit types not pre-defined in slmod. 
Fixed: crash stat not counting when AI stats are disabled and when the player was killed by AI. 
Fixed: issue of stats not displaying due to an added stat value for losses being present. 
Added: pilotError and crashLanding stat to stats display.

 

Added: WIP feature of best and current life. This is disabled at the moment but code is present and config options exist for it.

Hi Grimes,

 

i have auto-ban enabled. I want to remove the ban that a player has. Can I do this with a lua file edit - or do I need to use the in-game SL-Mod admin features?

 

Yes, but its a round about way of doing it. The unban admin command is used for the manual bans. The auto-bans are handled, well, automatically, and based on how you have it setup they will eventually be re-allowed in. Since I don't have a reallow exemption feature in slmod at the moment you will have to forgive specific offenses. 

 

Either editing the file or forgiving via command works. However editing the lua file won't immediately "take" and I wouldn't be shocked if it gets annoyed when you save it if the server is running and has that file open. To edit you have to add a ['forgiven'] = true, entry for each penalty you want to forgive. Easiest way is with the admin command though, which you can use on the remote server control or while connected to a server. Just gotta forgive until their points will below the ban threshold, at which point they will be allowed to reconnect. The two relevant commands are: 

 

-admin score statID <id>

-admin forgive <id> <type> <index>

 

id being the id associated with them, find their name in the main stats file and they will have an id = X value. 

type is a two letter word th, tk, ch, ck for teamhit, teamKill, collisionHit, collisionKill.

index is whatever entry index that offense is under.

BTW there appears to be issues with the JSON export. The way it was written originally always did the JSON conversion, the setting just dictated whether or not to save it. Coupled with an error occurring if data was formatted in a certain way it would prevent slmod from fully loading. The hotfix changed when it does the JSON export so the error will only occur if json export is enabled. So please disable it for the time being.  It is more of a DCS bug, but aspects of it are created via slmod for how it saves penalties on multicrew aircraft.

Grimes, another question from me. . . . 🙂

The ejection stat in SLmodStats seems to record at the moment the Ejection trigger is fired in DCS. This means that a successful ejection is recorded every time, even if the player dies in the chute, or disconnects whilst still the in the chute.

 

There is another trigger in DCS which I see in the logs and the debrief file called "pilot landing".

This appears to trigger when a successfully bailed out pilot touches the ground.

How much work would be involved in telling SL-mod to use the "pilot landing" trigger, instead of the eject trigger to record an "eject" statistic?

Of course, I definitely support Phil's suggestion.

 

One tweak though...

Or... to have both. That way the server admins can decide which combination of "pilot eject" and/or "pilot landed" to use.

There are a few complications regarding pilot_dead, eject, and pilot_landed events that make completely accurate stats difficult. 

 

1. Pilot landed event is missing some data with the scripting engine depending on when it occurs. Its actually kind of annoying since the entry exists in the event table but an error occurs if you try to use it. 

2. Pilot dead event is called instead if the pilot lands in the water. This event also is missing which pilot it is if the aircraft they ejected from is destroyed before the pilot dead event is called, which is likely to happen. 

3. Timing. Essentially it has to keep track of ejected players and then when a pilot landing event occurs again it goes back and changes the stat to reflect it. Timing comes into play because the time it takes can create issues, namely if you eject at 30000ft it takes roughly 19 minutes for the pilot to land. So it is possible to spawn in again, do whatever, and even land before the previously ejected pilot reaches the ground. This also means that if you eject in the closing minutes of a server then however the stat would be changed wouldn't occur because the event didn't happen. 

 

 

Its important to keep in mind that slmod treats eject and pilot dead events independently. Eject doesn't mean a successful ejection, it just means the player commanded an eject. 

 

A possible solution is for me to add another stat entry of "killedWhileEjecting" and use something similar to what I've used for other stats. Basically it logs when a player ejected and if a pilot dead event occurs within a short time then it'll add to the killedWhileEjecting event. It might miss some due to the aforementioned issues with pilot dead events. Otherwise it'll have to make a guess in some instances, say a pilot dead event occurred but has no initiator, then assume it was the guy who just crashed. But that could result in not accurate stats.

Damn, you're right. The player name is missing from the Pilot Landing event. Here's an extract from a little test I hosted, where I bailed out and waited until my pilot had reached the ground (under deployed chute) to see what events would trigger. The fourth line has the touch down. "type=pilot landing" is there, but initiatorPilotName is missing.

Has anyone got a stats export via a discord bot working with the SLmod stats, I found an node.js application, SL Bot, that is a couple of years old (that does this as a additional output) but don't want to invest time into trying to get it working if there is a more recent discord specific application. Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

Hey Maverickshaka,
Will the above work if I only have the user's UCID and NICKNAME but I do not know their IP address?
Should I just leave random numbers for the IP?

Yes, put just some unused ip like 99.99.999.99 or something like that, it's not a ban based on IP address as far as i know.

I've just implemented Slmod to my server and my guys are all spaniards, and plenty of them don't understand English.
I am interested in translating the script texts to Spanish so it can be implemented in the script if possible that way it can be maintaned for the long run and not only for us.

It would take substantial changes to all of the message to support multiple languages. Most of the messages are not written as a single block of text but assembled based on different conditions. By no means impossible just a bit of work and also need to think of a way to do it that makes adding other languages easy to add. For example this is how part of message of the day is written: 

titleTbl[#titleTbl + 1] = '\nThis server is running Slmod version '
titleTbl[#titleTbl + 1] = slmod.mainVersion
titleTbl[#titleTbl + 1] = ', build '
titleTbl[#titleTbl + 1] = slmod.buildVersion
titleTbl[#titleTbl + 1] = '.  To see the Slmod help menu, say "-help" in chat.\n'

To support other languages I'd either do it how DCS does it with something that looks to see if there is a translation of each phrase and replaces it if found or write as much of the text as a big block but search for key phrases to replace values as needed. The first would work better with how most of the messages in slmod are written, but would probably have some translation oddities. The 2nd would be better for any syntax differences between languages but would require extensive changes to every message. It is certainly something that should take input from people that speak other languages for what would work best for them.

Seems to be a big work to be able to translate it all, code-wise.


Spanish implementation can be done with the current organization. Basically we spaniards construct sentences exactly the same, but when attaching adjetives to a subject (the big red fast car) we do write them backwards (el coche grande, rojo y rápido // the car big, red and fast), so for that, your proposed first implementation will be doable with minor to none oddities. Other languages I cannot speak about I'm afraid.

I'm a native spaniard with C2 Cambridge certified English level, so if you decide to embark into translating it all, i'll be happy to help anytime.

 

Also, i've posted this before in the Discord, but inside the config file it is said that the correct syntax for specifing a folder for missions, stats and so is [[directory]] and doesn't work. Using the following structure (such as when you are reading LUA files from the mission editor) worked as a charm:

admin_tools_mission_folder = "C:\\Users\\Server\\Saved Games\\DCS.openbeta_server\\Missions\\"

I would reccomend to update the instructions for following updates for newcomers. I had to rack my brains out for quite a while untill I figured that way

    --[[
    ------------------
    -- Note due to a formatting issue I don't want to deal with, for the example directly below replace each { with [ and } with ]
    -----------------
    admin_tools_mission_folder = {{C:\Users\John\Dropbox\Dedicated Servers\Slmod\Missions\}}
    
    LEAVE THIS VARIABLE AS nil IF YOU WANT TO USE THE DEFAULT FOLDER!]]
    admin_tools_mission_folder = nil

I know, there is a note there directly above it. Initially did it that way as a workaround to when I updated how slmod loads the config file. Basically a multiline string in lua is contained within double brackets [[ to ]], but lua requires a different formatting if you wanted to have multiple sets within each other. 

--[[
[[This will error]]
]]

So I changed it to {{}} and left a note to change it. Big difference is with [[C:\folder1\folder2\]] is you don't need to use double \\ to escape out of the \. So either should work. Since I gotta upload a fix to the config file anyway for one of the bugs you reported on the discord I'll see about fixing that.

Thanks, I tried initially with admin_tools_mission_folder = [[C:\Users\Server\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta_server\Missions\]] and didn't work out for me, but might be possible that I had other errors at the same time...so it's very possible that it was me at fault in this case.

 

Thanks for the effort of maintaning slmod Grimes! Highly appreciated

Pushed a minor update. Added some clarity to that note in the config with your suggestion. Also fixed the issue with slmod having an error on first load when it created the config file.
