Reply With Quote #1

Galileo 1.1.290 released 2009-FEB-26

This is a feature rich map voting plugin. It's intended to be used in place of any other map choosing plugin such as Deagles' Map Manager and AMXX's very own mapchooser.

Here is an incomplete list of optional features this plugin can provide:
  • Ability to "rock the vote".
  • Map nominations to be used in the next map vote.
  • Runoff voting when no map gets more than 50% of the total vote.
  • Weighted map votes for players with customizable admin flags.
  • Unique map cycle when the server is empty.
I highly recommend you review the well-commented galileo.cfg to see all the options you have with this plugin. It's located in the attached ZIP and in the "Options (CVARS)" section of this thread.

Support
top

You can receive support for this plugin within this thread. Non-Steam servers are not supported.


If you are posting in this thread because the plugin or a feature of the plugin isn't working for you, please do all of the following so that we can more efficiently figure out what's going on:

Quote:
If you have access to your game server's console, type the following in the server console:
  • status
  • meta list
  • amxx plugins
  • amxx cvars
If you don't have access the your game server's console, join your server and type the following in your game console:
  • status
  • rcon_password your_rcon_password
  • rcon meta list
  • rcon amxx plugins
  • rcon amxx cvars
Paste everything from the status command *except* the player list.
Paste the entire result from the meta list and amxx plugins commands.
Paste *only* the CVARs that contain "galileo.amxx" in the last column from the amxx cvars command. They will be grouped together.
Commands
top


Server Commands:
Code:
  • gal_startvote [-nochange] Forces a map vote to begin and the map will be changed once the next map has been determined. If the "-nochange" argument is supplied, the map will not be changed by Galileo, which is useful when you have a different plugin handling the actual changing of the map.
  • gal_createmapfile filename Creates a file that contains a list of every valid map in your maps folder. The filename argument indicates specifies the name to be used for the new file. It will be created in the .\configs\galileo folder.

Client Commands:
Code:
  • say nextmap Displays, to all players, the next map that will be played. This is a replacement for AMXX's command of the same name. When using end of map voting (CVAR "gal_endofmapvote" set to 1), this command will return "[not yet voted on]" if the map vote hasn't started yet and "[voting in progress]" once the vote has started. When the outcome of the vote is determined, this command will return the map name.
  • say currentmap Displays, to all players, the current map name.

Optional Client Commands (if features are enabled):
Code:
  • say recentmaps Displays a listing, to all players, of the most recently played maps. Requires CVAR "gal_banrecent" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say rockthevote | say rtv | say rocktheanythingvote Registers the players request for a map vote and change. The player will be informed how many more players need to rock the vote before a map vote will be forced. The anything argument can be any "word" up to 20 characters. Requires CVAR "gal_rtv_commands" to be set to an appropriate value.
  • say nominations | say noms Displays, to all players, a listing of maps that have been nominated. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say nominate partialMapName | say nom partialMapName Attempts to nominate the map specified by the partialMapName argument. If there are multiple matches for partialMapName, a menu of the matches will be displayed to the player allowing them to select the map they meant. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say cancel mapname Cancels the nomination of mapname, which would have had to be previously nominated by the player. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say mapname If mapname has been nominated by the player, will cancel the nomination. If mapname has not been nominated by the player, will attempt to nominate it. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.

// Banning recently played maps means that the last several maps that //

A lot of time and effort went into making this plugin, making features just right, making sure there were no bugs, making sure it was easy to use. If you are glad I made this plugin, and are able, I'd appreciate a token donation. $5, $10, or whatever works for you.



Thank you! It means a lot to me.

Change Log
top

[2009-02-26] v1.1.290
  • Added a check for valid map when populating the various map listings from map list files.
  • Fixed error whem empty server map file doesn't exist. (18)
  • Fixed issue whereas Galileo would set the time limit to 0 in the course of it's regular activities but then sometimes not reset it to the original time limit afterwards.
  • No longer tries to print menus in color if the game mod doesn't support colored menus. (41)
  • Fixed possible RTV exploit by introducing a delay before a single player can RTV after a map change. It's the lesser of either 2 minutes or the value of gal_rtv_wait. (26)
  • Added additional information to comments for gal_nom_mapfile, gal_vote_mapfile, and gal_emptyserver_mapfile in galileo.cfg.
  • Changed default for gal_nom_prefixes from 1 to 0. In other words, the prefix functionality will be turned off by default.
  • Will no longer overwrite an existing menu. This means if a player has another menu open when the map vote starts, they won't see the map vote until the other menu is closed. It also means that, after a player voted and if the server is showing the vote progress, if another menu overwrites Galileo's, the progress won't be shown again until the other menu has been closed. This only affects people that show the in-progress vote status.
  • Now obeys a setting of "0" for gal_endofmapvote. Would previously erroneously present a vote regardless of the setting.
  • New CVAR, gal_sounds_mute, to indicate if any of the sentences spoken during various events are muted. See galileo.cfg for more information.
  • Added code to handle automated version info from SVN. This is of no consequence to anyone but me really, but I wanted to include it in the change log since it actually involves a change to the code.
  • Removed benign code that was prepped for feature utilizing standard maps of each mod. There is no longer any plans to add any information regarding standard maps as I see no use for it.
  • Removed the following language keys:
    • GAL_STANDARD_NOTFOUND
    • GAL_STANDARD_TOOMANY
    • GAL_STANDARD_UNKNOWNMOD
  • Fixed the "vote filler groups" feature that was previously working incorrectly. (36)
[2008-SEP-12] v1.0.255
  • Initial release.

Congratulations on the release Brad. Finally!

For those of you who have any doubts, this is by far the most comprehensive map voting plugin available.

1 question, if the only people in the server at the time of the vote is bots, do you skip the voting and just keep the normal next map or does it still go through the voting steps?


Looks nice either way

Galileo still goes through the motions, and since each option would have 0 votes, since bots can't vote, Galileo would just pick a random choice.

It supports whatever you have listed for "mp_chattime", unless it's less than 2.0 seconds in which case Galileo bumps it up to 2.0 seconds.
