Quote from mbutcher :Here's a siren demo video we just recorded:

...

Just one bug we found, if you do '/cansiren user 0' whilst someone has a siren on, their siren does not turn off on its own.

Thanks for the test. Smile

Bug noted.

Quote from Flame CZE :Would it be hard to implement the doppler effect for horns/sirens now?

That was already on my notes, I'll have a look tomorrow. I'm not sure how easy or hard it is, but it would be nice.

Quote from Bose321 :So if I understand correctly the host has to allow a guest to use a siren, but the server can't turn on the siren for the user, correct?

Correct, the guest must turn it on himself.

Quote from pik_d :I imagine if you do /cansiren username 0 it will turn it off.

Edit: Apparently this doesn't work.

Correct, that doesn't work.

Quote from Gutholz :The /cansiren command did not for me.
I start server via "Multiplayer" - "Start new host"
Then entered:
/cansiren gutholz 0
which gave: "User name is not valid"
(/spec command worked)

Siren itself works. wub wub wub. Ya right

If you start a non-dedicated host, then the host is the one user who you cannot give permission to use a siren.

The host always has permission. Smile

Quote from Amynue :And it's not like Scawen desinged those letters, it's just a font.

I did actually.

In fact Mark Healey did the original (ASCII characters only) using my font editor.

Since then I've updated them, following the same style, thinned them a little at one point, and added many new characters when we went for the international support.

Quote from matze54564 :The Upgrade to M7 works not. The exe and zip, both are damaged.

Thanks, I've fixed them now.

Quote from QATAR948 :When are we able to get Arabic translate ?
Edit : we can help to translate

I am interested in this but can't do it now. The main complication is the reverse direction text and I still need to research and code for this. But I must keep it lower priority than the tyre physics.

Quote from yaper :TIP on Polish keyboard.
Most national characters are typed by combining AltGr with Latin equivalent. The only one exception is źŹ (Z with apostrophe) it is made from AltGr+X beacuse AltGr+Z is occupied by żŻ (Z with dot above).

Does that work correctly in the LFS virtual keyboard? LFS calls Windows functions that should be handling all these character conversions.

It seems more like you need a way to switch on lights or sound a horn through InSim. Because the way it has to be done now sounds like quite a nasty hack!
