Would be pretty cool but I don't think it's possbile, it would have to be done within the map.
Acctually it could be possible but very difficult ive talked to my friend about this and he said it could happen but you would need the information on how many players and how much hp the bosses get per player and the bosses maximum and minimum HP.
For Bahamut alone you'd have to take all of these things into account:Extra damage from headshotsDamage from grenadesPotential damage from UltimaBahamut's healing materiaNumber of live CT's and base HPI'd imagine the way you'd set up such a plugin would be to detect how many bullets hit the boss, and I doubt it would be able to detect all of these other factors.
Agreed. I don't know the first thing about coding plugins, but since each boss on ZE is unique and lots of factors play into their health, I think it would be near impossible to code a plugin that accurately displayed HP for each separate boss.
You wouldn't have to think about those things as all the plugin would do is show the HP, not calculate it. All you would need to do (if possible) is to get Bahamuts HP from an entity (which would most likely have to be done manually on each map with bosses) and display it somehow.
Ah true, that'd be cool then, if it's possible
An early version of Mako actually had something similar to this but I think they removed it cause it was glitchy or something.
This would be the last thing i think about... There are much bigger fish to fry.
awesome kyle so uh is this for ze too?
It works for ZE too.
Type "!ddisplay" in chat.
ah thanks i can't play for now but ill be sure to leave a response when i am able to finally get on.
May want to put this on the rotation of server messages, I've let a few people know on 24/7Lila and they love it!
It is, I don't think a lot of players read chat though. Announcer seems to not be that widely known as well.
I usually try to announce it every once in a while about every other map or so. Then I see chat spam "!ddisplay" or "!announcer" followed by "aw sweet when did this happen?". I just shake my head...
Maybe it's an idea to create a menu based 'help menu' (think of something like zmenu) with information on ddisplay and announcer, but also things like the donate page, shortcuts to url with forbidden spots for zm, general PF info, maybe map specific URL to tactics (tactics for pred anyone?)... Within the menu you should also be able to adjust the settings of announcer and ddisplay.
Since a lot of players don't read the motd, or don't have HTML motd enabled, this could be a nice way to get important information to that group. It could popup every time you connect, every map change, or just once, the first time you connect to the server.
Sorry guys. I had to make a breaking change today to this, you're going to have to reconfigure. (For me it's 7 then 5)
good one thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
