Autohost BA Kick AFK/Reserve Slot

Post by AntiAllez » 25 Mar 2013, 18:26

allready Mantis that but died after hardly censorship :cry:

First Feature: plz kick inactive spectators(after half an hour maybe) from autohost, no one need them and they clog the server. only to got higher rank? the slots are limited so give aktive players a chance to join.

Second: reserve slots from players that kicked because of crash. oftens all waste their time on paused games but the player cant reconnect to host. a new player or spectator got his slot and limited slots of spectators locked the server. nobody knows whats going on without communicate. plz reserve this slot some minutes before a new player takes over the helm.

the 2nd point isnt a big one if you know how to reconnect without being in the lobby:

drag script.txt onto spring.exe and voila, ur back in the game/team

Mantis is for engine bugs, it won't help to complain about lobby/spads/autohost behaviour there.


First idea is good, in fact you could write a plugin for spads to do it or hope someone else will...

You'll find that people who produce stuff on here are generally too busy to do someone elses coding 'on request'.

Learning to code is very easy. There is even a good introduction on the wiki to writing spads plugins: http://springrts.com/wiki/SPADS_plugin_development

Dragging script.txt over Spring.exe isn't coding!

script.txt defines the play session and is generated by your lobby client at launch... and you execute it as a parameter of the spring executable (spring.exe/mt.exe) which in windows means dragging it on top of it, yes.

Us people who grew up with DOS sometimes forget how little the average computer user needs to know these days.

What do you call "inactive" spectator? What could be done for example is a plugin to auto-kick (only when spec slots are full) unsynced spectators and bugged spectators who stay "in-game" between games. But tbh this has low priority for me, so don't expect me to work on it in near future.

When did you last encounter this problem? This should be fixed since SPADS 0.11.2:
SPADS changelog wrote:0.11.2: allow disconnected players who didn't lose yet to reconnect to the battle lobby even if the battle is full, so that they can rejoin the game
You just have to use !unlockSpec and it will open the battle for you even if spec slots are full, then you can rejoin normally.

interesting command. how i have to use it? have to open spads chat channel from the host?

i watched all my commandlist but i cant find the command on it. how much users knowing about this feature. never heard about it before

i hope that the future brings us a simple solution with lobby. kommt Zeit kommt Rat.

spectators that doesnt move their cursor or typing- people who joins a host and the space left(then like undead vegetate)

If your lobby client doesn't offer this functionality in the GUI, you can type it as a private message to the autohost.
