I created this small plugin for myself, but I though it'd be good to share it. I don't know if any other plugins can do the same or if this can be achieved in other ways, but this is the simplest method I came up with.

The basic idea is, that usually when debugging a plugin, or just testing one I usually come up with new ideas and improvements... but after a hearty 15 minutes of playing I've already forgotten what I came up with. So, why not log your thoughts in game? I've made this admin only, and the plugin is aimed mostly at developing purposes.


Usage:
Ingame command:
Code:
say log All this text after the word log will be logged in a file
say_team log Also, all this text after the word will be logged in a file
Result in mode 0, in the Amxx logfile:
Code:
Map: <mapname> <user>: All this text after the word log will be logged in a file
Map: <mapname> <user>: Also, all this text after the word will be logged in a file
Result in mode 1, in a custom logfile:
Code:
<date> <time> <mapname> <user>: All this text after the word log will be logged in a file
<date> <time> <mapname> <user>: Also, all this text after the word will be logged in a file

Logging modes:
There are two ways of logging. On mode 0 your desired logged text will be logged directly to the Amxx logs. On mode 1 your desired log text will be logged to an external file (located in the cstrike folder).

Cvar's:
log_mode 0 - Logging mode, defaults to "0"
log_filename "notes" - Logging file's name, this default will result in cstrike\notes.txt

This is a very useful plugin actually. im not the best coder but it helps remember stuff if u are editing a plugin or somethin. also if your just playing in your server and you want to add something or even take note of a player that may be cheating? idk i like the concept +karma

Thanks a lot.

Yeah, basically you can use this plugin to write down stuff ingame without the hassle in looking for a pen and paper, or bringing up notepad. It's fast just to write the thing down in chat, and voilá.

I thought about adding a third mode, a per-map logfile (creates or appends to a logfile name after the map that's played), but I didn't find it necessary. I'd like to keep this simple. But any thoughts on this?

Looks great, you could add a command to open the notes in a motd window for reading

Awesome

Weather or not your a coder, you can always add notes for maps, or cvars and misc things anytime. its better than having to leave during the game just to make sure it gets done. Totally Useful

I am thinking I could go on to do two different versions after the next release. I could implement the simple MOTD-system to the next one. Then write a heavier version and release it as a plugin of it's own, that could actually read the log's and filter the log messages by the users will. (Showing only errors, or admin commands or only own log messages etc.) Basically releasing a "lite" version for those like me who just want to log a few things and keep things simple, and an advanced version which takes more resources but has a bunch more features which some don't need.

A suggestion. Is it possible to add for all admins who are on server apiece own In game notes? Example : I have 6 admins on my server including me and create for each admin those notes to see what admin did something wrong.
So admin "A" have own notes, admin "B" have own notes, admin "C" have own notes and including my self I have own notes and that all will save just like this in game notes.
Thanks ... And if You want to.
