Message Logging 1.17
by Damaged Soul

AMX Mod X Version: 1.75 and above
Supported Mods: All

This plugin allows for the logging of any or all messages sent by the HL engine or mod (such as DeathMsg, CurWeapon, etc) It also allows these messages to be filtered by entity.

Information that is logged includes:
  • Message name
  • Number of message arguments
  • Message ID
  • Message destination (i.e. Broadcast, One, All, etc)
  • Message origin
  • Entity that received the message
  • Entity classname
  • Entity netname
  • Every argument value and type
Required Modules

  • Console Commands
    • amx_msglog <command> [argument]
      • Displays help for logging engine/mod messages when no command is given
      • Commands:
        • start [msg name or id]
          • Starts logging given message or all if no argument
        • stop [msg name or id]
          • Stops logging given message or all if no argument
        • list [page]
          • Displays list of messages and their logging status
  • Cvars
    • amx_ml_filter [Default Value: 1]
      • Allows for filtering messages by entity index
      • Set this to the index of the entity for which you want to log messages
      • If this is set to 0, message logging will be done for all entities
    • amx_ml_logmode [Default Value: 1]
      • Determines where to log message information
      • Set this to 0 to log information to the standard AMX Mod X log file
      • Set this to 1 to log information to a separate file (messages.log) in the log directory
  • Examples
    • To log the DeathMsg message:
      • amx_msglog start DeathMsg OR amx_msglog start 83
    • To stop logging the DeathMsg message:
      • amx_msglog stop DeathMsg OR amx_msglog stop 83
    • To log all messages except the DeathMsg message:
      • amx_msglog start
      • amx_msglog stop DeathMsg OR amx_msglog stop 83
    • To log messages only sent to third player of the server:
      • amx_ml_filter 3
    • To log messages sent to all entities:
      • amx_ml_filter 0
