    CS:GO Glow Menu

    A request made in this post - https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=306534
    A menu which players can enable Glow to themselves.
    The colors that are shown on the menu can be changed in a config file.
    Also, the glow can be restricted to a certain flag and has 4 different styles to use.
    Some screenshots are in the github (link below), soon will be added in this post.

    • sm_glowcolor_style (1 by Default) - It changes the Glow Style to the players (Min 0, Max 3). WARNING: If you set the style to 0, the glow can be seen through walls;
    • sm_glowcolor_default (255 255 255 by Default) - Default Glow Color for players which haven't choosed the color from the menu. Empty will disable it;
    • sm_glowcolor_flag (Empty by Default) - Restrict the Glow to players with a certain flag.

    1. Drag the file named colors.cfg to addons/sourcemod/configs/glow_colors.
    2. Drag the file named csgo_glow_menu.smx to addons/sourcemod/plugins.
    3. Drag the file named csgo_glowcolor_menu.phrases.txt to addons/sourcemod/translations.
    4. Drag the file named csgo_glowcolor_menu.cfg to cfg/sourcemod.
    5. Load the plugin or just wait for the next map.
    6. Change the ConVars as you wish in the file csgo_glowcolor_menu.cfg located in cfg/sourcemod

    1. (To Show the Glow to everyone): Set your server with the sv_force_transmit_players ConVar to 1
    2. (To Compile): ColorVariables - https://github.com/PremyslTalich/ColorVariables


    Q: This plugin can lag my servers massively?
    R: Since transmits need a little more resource from where your server is hosted, it can lag the server.
    If that happens, change the cvar sm_glowcolor_default to "", or restrict the glow to a certain flag, changing the cvar sm_glowcolor_flag;

    Q: The Glow can be seen through walls?
    R: As I said above, if you set the cvar sm_glowcolor_style to 0, everyone can see the glow through walls. However, no matter which style you choose, the glow can be seen through smokes. If I find a solution for this, I'll update the plugin ASAP.

    Many thanks to:
    • 1.0 - Plugin Release

    The plugin is very good it needs some improvements and bug fixes.

    I already told you on steam and I'm waiting for the update.

    The following ideas are here to be discussed or improved
    • Save the player config by SQLITE.
    • Limit the color change per round (wait to start the next round for the color change to happen)
    • Cvar to leave a default color for each team.
    • Flag for certain colors (without flag - ct blue and tr red | with flag - can choose any color)

    thats all nice job

    Nice, I've made something similar to simulate the old cs 1.6 glow effect for Nemesis in zombie plague, but i was really lazy to take the code out from mitchell's module, so i still have that dependency on my plugin.
    Glad someone cared about this, its a really nice feature!
