    Weapons get additional effects other than damage

    I noticed how little plugins actually change gameplay on HL2DM other than RP servers, so I decided to make one.

    All the plugin does is add additional effects to your weaponry.

    The plugin has only one cvar, sm_swm_version, to follow up on it.
    Right now, it's version 1.3

    Put the plugin in the normal folder and add the swm_effects.txt in a folder named /data/ in that same position (if it doesn't exist, make one).

    This file gets updated automaticly by sm_swm_seteffect, but if you'd change it manually on an active server (o_O') the changes would take effect after map change.

    Commands and ConVars:

    sm_swm_seteffect <weapon name> <effect name>
    Sets the effect for that certain weapon and saves it to the config file.
    sm_swm_enabled <bool:1/0>
    Enables/Disables the plugin's effects. Map change is required for the effects to stop/start.
    Currently supported effects:

    Normal
    Removes all effects.
    Blind
    Blinds the player.
    Stop
    Disables movement.
    Slow
    Slows the player to 30~% of his normal speed (60.0).
    Daze
    Confuses the player by blurring his sight.
    DisoriŽntation
    DisoriŽntates the player. Changes his sight randomly.
    Speed
    Speeds the player up to 2x normal speed (380.0).
    Bump
    Launches the player into the air.
    Disarm
    Removes all weapons from the player.
    GGSwitch
    Switches the player's weapon to gravity gun.
    Fly
    Allows the player to fly. (No no-clip, he's still affected by gravity, but can defy it ;p)
    Drain
    Deals and extra 3 damage, which gets healed on the person attacking


    The plugin starts off with no effects set in the config. I suggest adding the positive buffs to the strong weapons and the negative buffs to the weaker ones.

    You can use sm_swm_seteffect to set the weapons.
    Some examples could be:
    Code:
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_crossbow" "speed"
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_crowbar" "slow"
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_357" "fly"
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_pistol" "daze"
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_ar2" "bump"
    sm_swm_seteffect "weapon_physcannon" "normal"
    If you have suggestions for effects, feel free to spout them!

    Change log
    v1.0
    Original release.
    v1.1
    *It now saves and loads from a file which effects it should use.
    *Giving a wrong weapon or effect will default to crowbar and 0 (normal) now. This also means that mods with different weapon names will cause the effect of crowbar to be applied when hurt by it.
    *Convar for enabling/disabling. The actual change will take place on map change.
    v1.2
    *Changed the swm_effects file to show actual names rather than numbers.
    v1.3
    *Rewrote the plugin to be a bit cleaner, hopefully removing some bugs.
    *Added the Drain effect.


    (I am aware it's spelled special. I'm just a bit speshial.)


    I also attached a SDKHooks version. Use this version to add effects to weapons that do no damage, like weapon_annabelle.
    This does require the extension to be installed aswell, though.

    I added this to my server.cfg:

    sm_swm_toggleeffects
    sm_swm_seteffect weapon_physcannon slow

    but it didn't seem to do anything. Am I missing something?

    It's 'special' not 'speshial', unless that's a pun

    Not sure, but perhaps specifying your effects first, then toggling them after might work.

    Might be that physcannon won't be triggered properly, seeing as the prop kills the person.
    Sorry for the very late response, but I didn't sub to my own thread :/ Shame on me.

    I just noticed I wrote sm_seteffect for when you write a wrong amount of arguements, but I did register it as sm_swm_seteffect, though.
    But in retrospect, I should take this down, never got around to fixing the gravity gun bug and it's fairly poorly coded.
    I'll release a new one. I'll post here when I do.

    I noticed that this doesn't work on everymaps
    on dm_overwatch it doesn't work and on dm_lockdown, it does...
    But this plugin is pretty nice, if you need testing pm me.

    What gravity gun are u talking about? when i set the physcanon to "slow" it does work.

    Thanks, this working on some maps could explain some of the errors.
    You'll be the first to know if I need testing ;) (My test server is down :'( )

    Alright, uploaded a changed version.
    Default the plugin will be on. All changeable variables will be set on map start.
    Only sm_swm_seteffects updates during gameplay.

    Some notes: You need to save the swm_effects file in the correct location, or plugin will start a failstate.
    No need to set the effects anymore when the plugin has started. It now saves them.
    Unidentified weapons (for example, kills using a custom point_hurt) will default to the crowbar weapon.

    Effects can stack, but will also overwrite on certain parts.
    A slow effect followed by a stop effect will completely remove the slow effect.
    Vice versa aswell.
    But a slow effect and a fly effect won't allow you to go fly at normal speed. You'll have the flying ability, but the speed of slow will still be applied. Your color will be of the latest applied effect. As will your screen effect.
    I made it this way to allow some interesting tactics to sprout.

    One bug I foresee right now is quickswitching.
    Weapons with a delayed effect (slams, grenades) will have the effects of the weapons equipped at the time of damage, not of the weapon used.
    This is due to player_hurt not having the weapon event variable.
    And I didn't want to have a SdkHooks dependency on such a small plugin.


    Edit: I know it has one warning: Attacker never used, but I left this variable in for future compatibility/expanding. At one point, I might've added an effect on the shooter rather than the hurtee
