The site is a test site I'm building to replace a clan site, its based on joomla 1.5, I want to use LGSL but I'm hitting an error - Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in lgsl_protocol.php on line 1256 - the game in question is BF2142
Also, what are the requirements to be allowed to legitemately remove any branding or copyright from the script?
How often does this error happen, I cannot see it on the site.
The code is covered by the GPL, in short, if changes are for personal use, do what you like, but making modified code available to download means you have to follow some rules.
There is no issue with removing the link at the bottom, I ask that people post their site on the guestbook or 'post your sites' thread, purely because I enjoy seeing them, but its by no means a legal requirement
I noticed my apache config wasnt inclusive of bzip2, I did a recompile and the problem at fist seemed to persist. I looked at the code and with my very limited knowlege of php it seemed to me the error corresponded to no player listings being displayed. I decided to leave it while I waited for a response here.
Within the following couple of hours it started to display properly and the error became less and less visible until eventually it sorted itself out.
Perhaps the script needed time to settle down interpreting the feed, or perhaps the feed itself wasnt right, its a new gameserver, only been up a couple of days and there have been some config problems the host Hypernia has needed to fettle such as no voip in game and so on.
Seems fine now Very happy with the plugin. Great work.
As to the copyright, its merely the site may go commercial at some point and transition from a private clan site to offering servers, its unclear as yet what the future path will be. I'm trying to build the site off joomla but with the future possibilities I want to make the site as "seamless" as possible Its not so much altering the code as integrating into the look of the site, de-branding etc.
I use a lot of scripts and I appreciate all the work that goes into offerings such as your own and I always stick to the stipulations, pay the fees etc, its only fair.
If its ok with you for now I'll sign the guestbook and post a site link (the site is actually semi secret from the clan even, being developed as a suprise with the permission of the clan leader as a step up from a simple forum for future plans), remove the credit link and if it looks like the site is going commercial I'll pay a donation, whats a suitable amount?
To be accurate the problem seems intermittent, I'll keep checking back to this thread, any idea on a timescale for investigation? If you need access to the site or anything you think might assist you just let me know and I will arrange it.
I have added some code to make the bf map names consistent, so that will be in the final release.
There is no built in support to launch BF2142, you have to use some software installed on the PC. Some people prefere XFire instead to launch games. There is a stickied thread with launch software and more details.
Yeah, I read into that post a bit about changing the link, its no big deal, more sort of a what if question. I think theres one clan guy uses xfire, not sure about qtracker. I'll have another read and we will decide how to adjust the linking.
