Title is pretty self-explanatory. I would like to recreate Arkshine's dhudmessage.inc in CPP and tried doing like in the presented code. I've tried both MSG_ONE and MSG_ONE_UNRELIABLE.


Code:
void DHudMessage(CBasePlayer* pPlayer, hudtextparms_t textparms, std::string text) {

    MESSAGE_BEGIN(MSG_ONE_UNRELIABLE, SVC_DIRECTOR, nullptr, pPlayer->pev);
    WRITE_BYTE(strlen(text.c_str()) + 31);
    WRITE_BYTE(DRC_CMD_MESSAGE);
    WRITE_BYTE(textparms.effect);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.b1 + (textparms.g1 << 8) + (textparms.r1 << 16));
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.x);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.y);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.fadeinTime);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.fadeoutTime);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.holdTime);
    WRITE_LONG(textparms.fxTime);
    WRITE_STRING(text.c_str());
    MESSAGE_END();
}
This is supposed to print a dhudmessage, without success.

The solution was basically converting (not directly casting) all float values to long. Hence WRITE_LONG.
