    This is a very simple plugin I wrote for Mann. vs Machine mode in TF2. If you play MvM, you'll probably find yourself sitting there waiting for someone to press F4 to start the round. And of course, they either don't know to press F4, don't care to, or the button doesn't work.

    This plugin allows you to force a player to 'ready up', or the entire team if desired. Though do be careful, as engineers obviously take longer to get ready. [img]http://img685.**************/img685/908/leave.gif[/img]




    CVARs
    mvmready_version - Plugin version.



    COMMANDs
    note: these commands can be used without the sm_* prefix
    sm_mvmready <#userid|name> <1=ready, 0=not> - Sets the target(s) to become ready. Requires GENERIC ADMIN flag. Used '@red' for targeting the entire team.
    sm_ready - Same as above, easier to type. Requested by "Vastrix"



    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
    Copy the mvmready.smx to the sourcemod plugins folder.

    Why use ClientCommand? What's wrong with FakeClientCommand?

    I don't see what the problem is. Should FakeClientCommand be used instead for some reason? [img]http://img208.**************/img208/9797/idleo.gif[/img]

    FakeClientCommand() just uses tactics to somewhat "ignore" the cvar that disables the use of ClientCommand(). If ClientCommand() worked on all players without problems then there is no need to change it.

    ClientCommand tells the client to execute the specified command. FakeCpientCommand makes the server think the client executed the specified command. The client can block ClientCommand, but not FakeClientCommand. As such, FakeClientCommand is generally better.

    Updated to use FakeClientCommand(), seems to be working the same. Also optimized some parts of the code.



    Thanks [img]http://img860.**************/img860/8335/smilen.gif[/img]

    Not sure what benefit this plugin has, as the timer starts ticking down (from 160 seconds iirc) as soon as the first person hits F4 and chops off 40 or so seconds for each additional person to hit F4 (unless the timer is already below 40)... until the last person hits F4 and it jumps to 10 seconds.

    Code:
    	if( target_count <= 0 ){
    		ReplyToCommand( client, "invalid target(s) specified" );
    	}
    You should use ReplyToTargetError(target_count) here. Make sure you LoadTranslations("common.phrases") in your OnPluginStart().


    Code:
    		new String:clname[MAX_NAME_LENGTH+1];
    		GetClientName( target_list[i], clname, sizeof( clname ) );
    		
    		// fake the cmd
    		FakeClientCommand( target_list[i], "tournament_player_readystate %d", cstate );
    		
    		// report it
    		ShowActivity2( client, "[SM] ", "set ready status '%d' on %s", cstate, clname );


    Code:
    	
    		ShowActivity2( client, "[SM] ", "set ready status '%d' on %s", cstate, target_name );
    ^^ put that outside your loop.

    Also, don't attach a compiled smx if it compiles on the forums.

    Updated. Now using ReplyToTargetError() & translations, thanks McKay, was wondering how to do that [img]http://img696.**************/img696/287/victoryv.gif[/img]

    Also added sm_ready command for easier typing, see changelog & post for details.
