This is the old version. 5.x is now available here:
http://tremulous.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=88535


-------------
Lakitu7's Tremulous 1.1 QVM
Current Version: 4.18
From SVN Revision 910

Downloads:
http://www.mercenariesguild.net/patches/?do=details&task_id=69


While playing on and admining Tremulous servers, I've found a distinct lack of a server package that
a) Contains all of the features that I want
b) Doesn't have any nonsense that ruins the game

Thus, like many server owners, I began the task of making my own for the {SGA} Server. While I originally intended to just put something together from existing patches, I quickly found that patches for many things that I wanted either didn't exist, weren't available, or weren't available separate from a ton of other things that I didn't want, or couldn't be applied together.

By the time I'd finished tracking down, separating, and creating my own patches, I'd done enough work to feel that I should distribute this QVM. Thanks to the encouragement of my friends asking for it, I've finished getting this to a releasable state.

As an overview, my QVM includes EVERYTHING in tjw's 1.1 QVM (not the balance changes tested on trem.tjw.org nowadays, but the things here: http://tjw.org/tremulous/). It also includes a number of the more popular enhancements found in other packages (avenger, risujin, *wraths') and things that I have written myself for features and bugfixes that I wanted.

If you do decide to use this, I would appreciate leaving a post here to tell me the name of your server. Then I can know to tell you about updates or bugs or whatever if I see you in game/irc.

--------------------
Installation:

Easy way:

Follow TJW's instructions at http://tjw.org/tremulous/SETUP.txt, but wget a URL for my QVM instead of his. My QVM DOES use TJW's Tremded executable, so get it from http://tjw.org/tremulous/

Harder way:
Download TJW's tremded, as above
Compile my qvm yourself:
Download SVN revision 910 (svn svn://svn.icculus.org/tremulous/ -r910)
Apply my .patch
make

If you're using linux, you should already know how to compile things.

If you're using Windows, use either of the excellent build guides at:
http://tremulous.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3408
http://tremulous.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2672

--------------------

Contact Information:
Forums: The Lakitu7's 1.1 QVM thread, tremulous.net forums, mods subforum
IRC: Lakitu7 on Freenode, Quakenet, Dorksnet, or Zirc
Ingame: {SGA}Lakitu7, probably on Beergarden

--------------------
FAQ:

Q: I want a QVM with features x and y, but not z. Will you compile one for me?
A: Unless you're a good friend of mine and you have a darn good reason why you can't do it yourself, no. If you're running Linux, I'm sure you know how to compile your own anyway. If you're running Windows, see either of the excellent build guides linked in "harder way." If you ask nicely and put forth the effort to learn to do things yourself, I may help you, but I won't do it for you. The only thing I put here that's really all that controversial is SD Votes and those are both controlled and disablable.

Q: I don't want your QVM, but I do want patch X from it
A: I've made EVERY patch that I have used available here: http://browsingtheinternet.com/trem/patches/910_qvm/
 

Q: I found a bug.
A: Well damn, tell me. Use the contact information above and I'll fix it. If it's part of a patch that I didn't make, then I'll still fix it, or I'll whine at whoever did to to fix it instead Smiley.

Q: I have a suggestion for a new feature.
A: Maybe. If I don't see myself using something, I won't code it for you. But if the idea is good and I'd like to have it, perhaps. BUT, I have no interest in doing any fullscale mods that make sweeping gameplay changes. I do not have any interest in making any "balance" changes. If your suggestion is nice and can be implemented with a reasonable degree of effort, I'll think about it.

Q: You should add the Protoss/Predator/MDriver Turret/M4A1 Abrams Tank/BFG9000
A: Hay man that's so cool how about you make it yourself and then post it on the forums.

Q: Update this for newer SVN revisions
A: This was already a ton of work. Maybe. It depends on how many things get into SVN that I want to include BEFORE 1.2 comes out. Then I may or may not release something for 1.2.

--------------------
The long, long list of patches/features:

I have mirrored every patch that I've used here:
http://browsingtheinternet.com/trem/patches/910_qvm/

The ones that I have made I've also mostly submitted to http://www.mercenariesguild.net/patches

You may use any patches that I have made for whatever you wish, but as with all GPLed code, follow the license: you must keep it opensource.

Other patches are available from their given sources

Listing is roughly in order of significance of their effect, in my opinion

Patches that have multiple things are together because they don't apply together in their seperate forms. I have linked their original separated versions where applicable.

backport901_tjw_game_qvm_only.patch
Description: Backports SVN code to be compatable with 1.1 clients. QVMs generated are to be used with TJW's Tremded
Author: vcxzet
Source: http://www.mercenariesguild.net/patches/?do=details&task_id=3 (Why he 'closed' the task for the most important patch there is well beyond me

Description: Balance changes from TJW's 1.1 QVM. You're likely used to all of them
Author: TJW

--
sdmodes+sdvotes+denybuild+denybuildvotes+mutevotes+customvotes+specvoting.patch
This is my votes megapatch. Only customvotes is my idea, but none of these patches would otherwise apply together. In the case of SD Modes + SD Votes, I had to rewrite most of the SD functions to make them work together. Please enjoy my efforts.

SDModes: Adds different methods of sudden death.
Author: TJW
Source: http://tjw.org/tremulous/ (separated out by me) Info here: http://tjw.org/tremulous/FEATURES.txt

SD Votes: Allows /callvote sudden_death
Author: Avenger
Source: https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2920 (modified heavily by me)

g_suddenDeathVotePercent
Author: me
Percentage required to vote yes for Sudden Death votes to pass. This is in an effort to balance them. Set to 0 if you want to DISABLE them entirely. Defaults to 75

g_mapVotesPercent
Author: me
Percantage required to vote yet for map, nextmap, and map_restart votes to pass.

DenyBuild: !denybuild user, disallows user from building
Author: Peoro
Source: http://wraths.dyndns.org/games/tremulous/patches/svn901/
This is in SVN as of r925

DenyBuildVotes: /callvote denybuild user
Author: Me, sort of
This is in SVN as of r925

Mute Votes: /callvote mute user
Author: Avenger (Rewritten by me)
THis is in SVN as of r925

Spectator Voting: g_allowSpecVoting toggles ability for spectators to vote and call votes
Author: Peoro
Source: http://wraths.dyndns.org/games/tremulous/patches/svn901

Custom Votes: /callvote custom "String goes here".
Allows the calling "custom" votes. Before r858, people would use /callvote map "Is unnamedPlayer an idiot?" Since that's diabled now by a check to verify that "is unnamed player an idiot.bsp" exists before calling the vote, I replaced it with customvotes. They DO nothing, but can be useful for an admin to ask a question of users on their server.
Also has /callteamvote custom "String goes here" for things like /callteamvote custom "Move to window room?"  Idea for teamvote version thanks to Benmachine

Please turn these off. They ruin the game. g_allowShare 0 will turn off BOTH of them. I just have them because they're so damn popular that I can't not do it anymore.

I'd use my own version, but it requires client side mods too. Developers, Please, please put this into SVN.

gate-!warn.patch: !warn user reason
Author: Gate
Displays a big ol' message to your target that tells them that an admin is warning them for reason: reason and they should stop whatever they are doing and comply. I feel this is a much less abusable alternative to !slap

kev-putmespec-svn827.patch: !specme
Author: Kevlarman
I modified this to !specme instead because that seems to be what most people expect it to be called. Personally, I don't see why people can't just use /team spectate, but it's requested a lot, so here it is.

svn910revert+lakitu7-admin_true_name_in_banlog.patch:

svn910 revert:
Reverts kick and ban code to how they were pre-revision910. The bug that introduced (https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3096) is worse than the bug that it fixed (https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3052).

Admin true name:

Author: Me

--
lakitu7-g_minLevelToJoinTeam.patch: Only users with admin level > g_minLevelToJoinTeam can join a team. Otherwise, they are forced to spectate. This can be used to quickly create a private server.
Author: Me

--
philbordelon-floodprotection+lakitu7-enhancements.patch
Prevents flooding of chat commands. Controled by g_floodMinTime. 0=off. Default: 2000.
Admins with admin permission #2 (immune to flood protection & censorship) are immune. This permission was already in the admin system, but didn't do anything because it wasn't implemented yet. All forms of /say are protected by flood protection, along with PMs and admin commands. g_floodMaxDemerits lets you fine tune the harshness of the protection somewhat. See the source link for details. I defaulted it to 5000.

Author: Phil Bordelon (Updated and given a few more features by me)
Source (Original): https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2811

--
lakitu7-g_deconDead.patch
Adds g_deconDead, which controls the ability to decon structures that have 0 health and are about to explode, causing damage. This was possible before g_markdeconstruct (r880), but was regardless of g_markdeconstruct's setting. g_deconDead defaults to 0 (svn behavior, cannot decon dead structures). g_deconDead reverts to the pre-880 behavior.
Author: Me

Nice job, and very well documented. This may well be motivation enough to get me to release mine, it's certainly a motivation to start documenting properly now.

By far my favorite qvm. Cheesy only thing i dont like is the fact that you stopped dumbasses from showing their phailed P.M.S. to the entire server. :evil:

Still, <3 Lak.

Edit: Question: Do we leave g_suddendeath blank?

Edit: Question: Do we leave g_suddendeath blank?


It shouldn't really matter either way, but yeah, just don't set it. The game will automatically set it to 0 at the start of each round, then set it to 1 during SD when SD naturally occurs. If a sd vote occurs, it will be set to 1, which will trigger early SD. Doing g_suddenDeath 0 in rcon will work to remove SD if it's before natural SD time, but not after. This is technically a bug, but honestly I don't think SD should be removed once started, so I didn't fix it.

By the way, Napkin's told me that they've experienced some really wacky lag/warping issues when using skip correction & maxWarp on with unlagged turned off. If you have unlagged turned off and are experiencing that type of problem, that is probably your issue... especially since nothing else here messes with that type of code. Smiley Let me know how things work out. If someone confirms, I'll put it in the docs at least... or perhaps just add something to automatically disable the skip correction patch when unlagged is turned off. Either way, let me know if you experience things issues.

Glad everyone is so excited. Smiley

Are you going to ever add risujins flood protection? It was quite useful from keeping people from holding spam binds.

Oh, I suppose people new to backports should have that done for them. Yeah, I'll take care of it and reupload.

Maybe. I've never played with it. I'm used to there being enough admins around to take care of things. I'll have a look, anyhow. It's not a bad idea. I've heard people complain about his implementation though.

Done. g_markdeconstruct now defaults to 0.

Sorry about that. I didn't really think about trying to do much in the way of documenting or changing things in SVN.

You didn't mention votes requiring reasons, did you? It looks like you used Risujin's version of my code.

If you use my rewritten ClientCommand, it should be trivial to add in anti-spam stuff... something like:
Code:
if( cmds[ i ].cmdFlags & CMD_SAY )
{
  // do your magic here
}
but you'd still have to write the foolproof anti-spam system, since I doubt anyone else has. (As I've probably mentioned before repeatedly, the problem is not so much people hitting a bind too many times, but people intentionally annoying other players. They can always circumvent the anti-spam measures.)

Q: Update this for newer SVN revisions
A: This was already a ton of work. Maybe. It depends on how many things get into SVN that I want to include BEFORE 1.2 comes out. Then I may or may not release something for 1.2.
Hm, what might you want?
stfu overmind?
more accurate vote eligibility counts?
correct auto selection for layouts?
more accurate player counting?
g_teamForceBalance that works right?

Q: I have a suggestion for a new feature.
A: Maybe. If I don't see myself using something, I won't code it for you.
So as long as it's not new or you don't have to write it, you're fine with adding it (like share and donate, which you claim "ruin the game")? How about adding /steal? :wink:

Doing g_suddenDeath 0 in rcon will work to remove SD if it's before natural SD time, but not after. This is technically a bug...
Don't look at me. It worked perfectly in my version of g_suddenDeath.

My guess is that won't happen until a while after this is added, which will require a rewrite of your patch.

"specme" like "spectate me", like "/follow ..."? Of course, you could solve that problem by just naming it something like "!movemetothespectatorteam" (you'd have to increase MAX_ADMIN_CMD_LEN though).

When I'm making patches that I intend to get into SVN, then I'll do them all in the most clean, elegant, and proper way possible for that end. When I'm making patches to do things to meet the needs of the playerbase more immediately, I'll make things that work. This is largely meant to be the later.

You didn't mention votes requiring reasons, did you? It looks like you used Risujin's version of my code.

If you use my rewritten ClientCommand, it should be trivial to add in anti-spam stuff... something like:
Code:
if( cmds[ i ].cmdFlags & CMD_SAY )
{
  // do your magic here
}
but you'd still have to write the foolproof anti-spam system, since I doubt anyone else has. (As I've probably mentioned before repeatedly, the problem is not so much people hitting a bind too many times, but people intentionally annoying other players. They can always circumvent the anti-spam measures.)


Maybe. I need to do research on the various antispam implementations before I decide what should or shouldn't go in. I'm just plain ignorant about the subject for now.

This is a problem like waiting to buy hardware because it's going to be obsolete next week. Yeah, I'll get to it. No, those weren't important enough to deny the community the things I have done while I redo everything to put them in.

One exception done reluctantly under many requests completely defines policy, obviously.

I'll look into it. Any attention paid to spectating is good attention though, IMHO.

Or I'll just leave it like it is because it's done for consistency with other patches.

I never even pretended to support the different sudden death modes (and the changes required to implement the weird ones shouldn't have effect the decision of whether it is sudden death or not).

Bump to 4.02
Fixed mute-PM, added Mute-Tell (after fixing it to also check that *ent exists)

Yeah, mute-PM incorrectly applied to cmd_share. Yay for diff/patch not having enough context.

You can't "tell" from the server console.

 I wouldn't mind the answer to that question either, so I could know what people think it's "missing" so to speak. The flood protection, I'd guess?

[edit]
Actually I just bugged him for the answer on IRC. Smiley Anti-spawnblock, !info, overflow. I'll probably add anti-spawnblock and !info fairly soon. Anti-spawnblock is new and !info I've been waiting for him to "finish." Overflow, probably not, but Smiley

Benmachine also mentioned team-customvotes, which sounds good and I'll do it for sure.

Yeah, it was !info, antispawnblock, overflow, and flood protection. I forgot about that last one, but it should be there.
SST don't seem to be running it now though, Paradox reported an odd bug to me that I guess I must have introduced in my patching, so I'm gonna want to fix that before I do a public release. Lakitu7 also reminded me of an addition to !info (to read cvars for you) that I'm going to try to get done as well.

So whats !info and Anti-spawnblock do? Why wouldn't you add overflow?

EDIT: Why doesn't Mark Decon work?

!info [sth]: gives info about [sth] which is stored in a text file
Anti-spawnblock: pushes the blocker. if it cant push it starts making damage
overflow: he is already included
Mark Decon: it requires a new cgame or a nasty hack
