    Talk Tools v0.1 (3/2)

    This plugin allows players to use all-talk (a.k.a UberTalk) when sv_alltalk is off on the server. This allows teams to chat with each other without sacrificing the teamwork and strategizing that comes with team-only chat.

    CVars:

    sm_talktools_version - Plugin version.
    sm_talktools_enable - 1 is on, 0 is off. (default 1)
    sm_talktools_teamtalk - When enabled, a player's team will always be able to hear them, even when dead (Ventrilo-style). 1 is on, 0 is off. (default 1)
    sm_talktools_alltalk - When enabled, UberTalk is activated, which allows players to bind a key for alltalk when sv_alltalk is 0. 1 is on, 0 is off. (default 1)
    sm_talktools_alltalk_admin - To restrict UberTalk to admins only, set this to a command name (i.e. "sm_kick"). Only admins that can execute that command will be able to use alltalk.
    sm_talktools_welcome - Display a welcome message when a player connects, instructing them how to use UberTalk and TeamTalk. (default 1)

    Commands:

    +voiceall - Activate UberTalk while the button is pressed. Should be used in conjunction with "+voicerecord" to be useful (see Usage Instructions below.)
    talkhelp - Public command to display a help menu with keybinding instructions. Can be called as !talkhelp in chat.

    Usage Instructions:

    Setting up a keybinding for ubertalk is a little more complicated than you would expect since voice chat (+voicerecord) cannot be detected server-side. To use UberTalk, players should add the following lines to their autoexec.cfg:

    Code:
    alias +alltalk "+voiceall; +voicerecord"
    alias -alltalk "-voicerecord; -voiceall"
    bind <key> +alltalk
    This will allow them to use alltalk with <key> (I use "f") even when sv_alltalk is off. The standard voice chat key ("v" by default in TF2) will still be team-only chat.

    Bugs:

    Using this plugin breaks client-side muting functionality, so that USERS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO MUTE EACH OTHER. This is an unfortunate side effect that I have not been able to work around. A bug report for the issue is here. If anyone knows of a solution to this problem, please let me know.

    Installing:

    talktools.smx -> addons/sourcemod/plugins/
    talktools.sp -> addons/sourcemod/scripting/
    plugin.talktools.cfg (optional) -> cfg/sourcemod/

    If Custom Votes is installed:
    talktools.vote.cfg -> addons/sourcemod/configs/customvotes/

    You should add a translation file for the "welcome explain message". I'll try this one tomorrow.

    I had the keybind commands wrong, try again if you didn't get it to work.

    Yeah, pretty much the same thing, with a few other features. I made this for our server a year or so ago (before that one existed), but never published it - I just posted it now because a few people had asked me for it.

    The functionality of sm_talktools_teamtalk is provided in basecomm when sm_deadtalk is set to 2

    Oh, cool. When was that added? I don't remember it in 1.0.

    strontiumdog - I see we use slightly different mechanisms for alltalk. Do you have an issue with client-side muting being broken with your plugin?

    Would there be a way to reverse the way this works? Could it be that all talk is on and you add a new button for Team Talk?
