    Vocalize Fatigue

    About:
    This plugin has one simple purpose. To stop "PEELZ HERE" spam. You know what I'm talking about.

    Some random dude joins your sever at start spamming his "IWILLZANNOYU" key which is bound to "vocalize PlayerDeath".
    All of sudden you now got some guy playing Zoey screaming like hell all the time, which is not only annoying but it also reveals your position to the infected team.

    The reason for this another-prevention-of-vocalize-spam is that I find kicking or banning people for use the vocalize commands is a bit harsh. Sure it is funny sometime. When timed right and at the right moment, but keep spamming pills here, got old a long time ago.

    Blocking commands instead of kicking a player seems a lot more sensible to me.

    Anyway so that is the reason for this plugin. I hope you will find it useful.
    Also first plugin evar so be nice ;). A simple and short script.

    Big credit to teddyruxpin. I was getting out in timers and stuff that weren't needed as I saw from Vocalize Spam Guard.
    Features:
    • Blacklist
      This enables you to disable certain vocalize command, to prevent people spamming these command.
      Personal I blacklist the PlayerDeath command (Zoey's annoying scream), but itís not enabled by default.
    • Prevent Repetition
      Often people spam the same thing. Instead of just spamming different commands, players that repeat the same vocalize command will be flagged for such and get an extra time penalty for this.
    • Stop Vocalize Spamming
      If players are not repeating them self but just spamming a lot of vocalize commands, they will after 5 different commands within 2 seconds suffer a fatigue, that render them unable to use the vocalize command.

    • Vocalize Gag
      Players can be gagged, render them not being able to use the vocalize command at all. Command usage requires admin flag A (generic).
      Usage: sm_vocalgag <#userid|name> [time]
    • Vocalize Fatigue Immunity
      Can be adjusted so certain users don't have to wait to say another vocalize command, or can evade blacklist.

    Known Problems / Things to Notice:
    • Does not kick or ban
      This plugin simply disable the vocalize command for the abusing player. Check out Vocalize Spam Guard if you want to kick players for abusing vocalize.
    • Will not prevent scripted sequence
      Such as Francis's "Aw hell" when players activate the car alarm. Nor when the game thinks a player should comment on something (Healing somebody, almost falling, etc.).

    Cvars:
    A configuration file will be automatically created for you upon first run, in /cfg/sourcemod/ called VocalizeFatigue.cfg

    I'm fine with vocalize spam as long as the vocalizes are something else than peelz here five thousand times and zoey screams.

    I was playing as louis once on a server and kept spamming vocalizes that were for when he was calling for someone to pull him up when he was hanging off of something, and finished it off with a dying scream. Everybody thought it was funny.

    As for this add-on, I love how you didn't go the idiotic direction and made it so that it would perma-ban anyone who used the vocalize key (reminds me of the micspam plug-in). It's nice to see something that doesn't completely restrict it and instead (will) has/have a black/whitelist. I hate plug-ins that just flat out remove everything. It really pisses me off.

    Now, if someone could make a micspam plug-in that could check to see if the sound is going over the volume limit (which is usually what people hate). Then I'd be happy.

    If that is even possible, of course.

    I'm sorry but I don't need any scream to know where they are except when it's a " We play crouched " team.

    I just installed your plugin and checked the error logs and everytime a mapchange or I do a server reboot these pop up:

    L 07/06/2009 - 10:22:08: SourceMod error session started

    Since I am still a noob in regards to deciphering what might be the issue, I assume that it is because there are no active players on the server. These seem to be popping up whenever I reboot the server and/or do a change map (no players connected to server at the time).
    If there are any more details you need, let me know and if I am just being too much of a bother and there is nothing to worry about, let me know too.. I am still sorta new to the whole element of SourceMod but I love the platform...

    Forgot to add that I also have Downtown1's L4D Scores/Team Manage plugin installed but because the default startup map is a coop map, I have Thraka's Game Config plugins unloading that plugin since currently (only having it load during Versus campaigns), it causes issues with having coop players to switch to infected on the third map during a couple of campaigns (that I have documented).

    Thought I'd at least list that as well.

    Hmm array is out of bounds. Could mean two things, I think... Either MAXPLAYERS aren't returning the right value (anyone with more then 8 players?) or MAXPLAYERS+1 doesn't work :/

    Anyway I changed the reset data function to reset once the client is connected, instead of when player disconnects or at map start.

    Again this could still give a array is out bounds error, but I can't see why it should do. Otherwise I will have to specify max players I guess.

    Also seems that no one noticed that my flag bypass was not functioning (), so I have replaced it with immunity which for once actually works

    Code:
    Version 1.1c
    + Added immunity level for bypass
    - Removed flag bypass
    ~ Fixed not resetting all player data corretly
    ~ Renamed all _time cvars to _delay
    ~ Accidental removed inclueded files... Added again.

    I find that friendly fire is a good deterrent for vocalize spamming.
