Hi, there, this is just a quick drop from me before I'm again fully online:
@ bunder9999 : As far as I know there's no rules appearing only when someone connects first time. All connect items (big and smaller buttons) appear on every connect, if defined. Displaying Shif+i (preferences) menu by default on connet is a tricky matter. I had it implemented that way but it was causing too many connect failures. It is, after all, almost 100 buttons to be sent to a barely established connection. There could be a delay set, but I feel regular LFS people start to know the system and I'd really love to keep its default actions, that cannot be turned off, to a minimum.
@ Framaris : Having a FR version would be most cool.
It is not an easy job though, with almost 500 messages (very short to rather long) to translate; my estimate is it may take up to 2 hours. Just download the latest language pack (for 2.2.x) and see the EN file to get better estimate.
# Rules, FAQ, Notes : In 2.1.7 there was a change in how these items are specified. No more external files (Airio.txt.rl.txt..) are used, the lines are put into Airio.cfg.txt file just like other items. Here I dare to quote from the changelog:
"Also the text lines from TXT.FQ, TXT.RL, and TXT.NT were moved into a new section of Airio.cfg.txt, with new items TextFAQs, TextNotes, and TextRules available. The old arrangement in NOT supported, the three formerly used TXT files are ignored. Any changes in FAQ/Notes/Rules buttons need to be updated by !rld, just like all other items."
So, if you had a text like this in Airio.txt.rl.txt file:
Here are the server rules:
Always observe the rules,
never use any cheats!
You would copy them into Airio.cfg.txt file and add appropriate keys:
TextRules=Here are the server rules:
TextRules=Always observe the rules,
TextRules=never use any cheats!
Note there are no opening pluses (+). After updating save the CFG file, delete old RL, FQ, and NT files, type !rld and it should be functional. If not, it may be caused by another catch: If you still have files like Airio.cfg.tc.txt or Airio.cfg.nc.txt in Airio folder, the new merged Airio.cfg.txt will actually be ignored, the items just added never read! To solve the trouble I'd suggest you switch completely to the new file structure, 2 months old now, no more changes planned.
I'm very sorry, I know it is not pleasant to change the config files used, but as Airio was developing, people were losing their way among the various config files. With the current 3 main config files I believe a reasonable balance between the number of files and their size was achieved.
Basically, if you're doing updates from version 2.1.8 or below to the current version, I'd suggest you start with new default config files as they are offered in the downloaded archive, going through the items and copying there values from your old config files. All updates (such as in text items) are then guaranteed to function and further updates will be much easier, because they mean only copying a few lines/items, as they are mentioned in the changelog.
@ Crady : Sorry, I can't help you with unzipping, PHP is not my field. The same is true concerning the live stats. But I must say it is a useful feature, if supported by PHP knowledge. You may take a look in here about the data available: http://racingteam.aa24.net/stats/servers.php
