hi and thank you for the topic.

I use for some times b3 bot on urban terror and wanted the bot on my smokin guns server.
the smokinguns parser was developed by xlr8or (xlr8or@xlr8or.com) on my server vgames.eu.
you can see parser discussion here:
http://www.bigbrotherbot.com/forums/ind ... opic=926.0
actualy the b3 bot seems to work well on sg except some plugins.
xlr8or developed several plugins, web tool investigation, web stats etc...

the bot need mysql database and some python packages.
to install :
http://www.bigbrotherbot.com/forums/ind ... board=19.0

for example we can found some infos about = SG = Tequila ;) here:
http://www.vgames.eu/index.php?id=97&cl ... atus_id=83
guids, ip(s), connections, chatlog,
kills, deaths, teamkills, used aliases ,status
and more are saved in the
database.

b3 bot download page;
http://github.com/xlr8or/big-brother-bot/tree/master

here it's a list of plugins developed by xlr8or:
http://www.bigbrotherbot.com/forums/ind ... board=18.0

others plugins:
http://www.bigbrotherbot.com/forums/ind ... board=17.0


i'm not be present on this forum much because my english is rusty and i need 30 second for loading one page (or sometimes i got message error "please refresh your data")
thank you later

Re: B3 (aka Big Brother Bot)

Anyone here is aware of B3 (aka Big Brother Bot) ?
I know Urban Terror server admins use it a lot.

If we manage to install it with SG, it will ease server administration a lot, cause it has a lot of feature. And of course, if B3 works with our game, none of the coder will have to work on admin feature (which are quite annoying to code IMO).

B3 can kick Teamkiller, or ban them for for a while. For example a common config will ban a teamkiller for 1 minute, then if he reconnects and does it again, he is banned for 2 minutes, then for 4 minutes, and so on.

If someone loves to shoot at your legs at the begining of the round, but never kill you, he will be banned too, cause it count all damage done to a mate. Bans are performed on a combination of your IP adresse and your GUID, maybe with another params, but it works really well.

Before kicking a guy, the bot says something like "<nickname> will be kicked if not forgiven". If people injuried by him send the chat line "!forgive", all damage they have received from this guy will be forgiven.

B3 works with a database, and can do a lot of stuff, can remember who you are, can store your statistics, give admin status automatically.

I don't know how to install it, but i'm sure some of our player/admin will give it a try, the official website is here :
http://www.bigbrotherbot.com/

I have played 2 weeks ago on a server named something like vgames.eu , and i'm pretty sure that B3 was installed here, cause the console was chating similar things. Maybe we should ask the admin to write a tutorial ?

IMO, it is wiser than put a lot of energy to have our own admin system.


Hi,

Tequila told me that he has contacted "Villa", the admin of "vgames.eu" server, and he is okey to share his experience of installing/configuring B3 for Smoking Guns.

So go ahead dude !
We want you !

Oh, I'm not moderator here, so if Pardner or Red can mark this thread as "sticky", I think it's a really important thread.

For those that don't know what it is, here the main interest with B3: it provide a lot of stuff for monitoring your server, kick bad player (TK), remember user and doing statistics, and so on... For the dev team, it is really usefull too, because you already know that we don't have too much coder (poor Tequila ;) ), so if we can use B3 instead of coding admin stuff, we can focus on game feature.

I hope this kind of bots will be used in SG servers as default in the near future. IMHO, it sounds like a great solution to many problems. If B3 is reliable enough, we could resign of voting system at all, which i recently found a very bad solution for this kind of servers (kicking for fun, different 'rules' for friends, etc.). Voting is also abused for map changing - 5 players want to play Durango, Durango and Durango and 4 players wouldn't mind playing every map... yes they are minority, but let's not forget about them :)
With B3 working on, and a few improvements in game (like awarding 1 point for defenders after timeout in Bank Robbery mode) voting could be successfully disabled, leaving minor management tasks to server admins.
I cross my fingers and wish good luck for developers ;)
Cheers

this is for samp (san andreas multiplayer).the pawn script is running with mysql plugin. you can register an account via the site.

about smokin guns and the bot i'm searching how i can display b3 message(s) in bigtext in the middle of the screen or in the top of the screen.
same as here :
http://ethome.ifrance.com/sg2.bmp

Code: Select all
self.console.write( 'bigtext"^v%s"' % message)

return b3 message(s) where kill(s) and death(s) message(s) are displayed.

have you got the solution ?

later :wink:

Hi villa,

currently, the command sent by the dedicated server to display such messages is the "cp" one... but that command can only be used from the code right now... Maybe we can add it to the dedicated server as a new feature for the next release.

You said "you can register an account via the site.", but it's forbidden as I got a message "The board administrator is no longer accepting any new registrations at the moment.". I tried on vgames.eu. By the way, it's confusing if you propose to register and that's only useful for samp.

Is the registration service a B3 feature or just a vgames.eu feature ?

tequila , a message has been sent to your pm .
our forums is closed, about the b3 registration via the website it's maybe difficult for the player to find the guid used in game , i don't know exalty. my idea for later is to add automatically b3 account in the forums database for now i dont have the times.
registration via the website is only for samp. :wink:
