// IRCReporter : An IRC match reporter bot for UT2004.
IRCReporter is an IRC match reporter bot for UT2004. It will run as a
serveractor on a server, and report the events in the match (kills,
flag captures, node attacks, etc) to the IRC channel on the server
To install IRCReporter, extract the IRCReporter.u
file to your ut2004/System directory.
To make the bot run, you will need to add a line to your server's INI
file, under the [Engine.GameEngine] area:
You will also need to edit the INI file to change which server and
channel the bot connects to, and also set the options avaliable.
See below for instructions on this.
You MUST configure the bot to tell it where to go, what name to use, etc.
Copy and paste the following two lines into your server's INI file:
** BEGIN COPY BELOW THIS LINE ***
** END COPY ABOVE THIS LINE ***
You will need to edit the above line to change the bot's options.
Below is information on each of the options:
Server The server the bot connects to.
Port The port on the server.
BotName The nickname the bot uses.
Channel The channel the bot joins.
bDisplayKills Whether the bot shows kills.
bDisplayChat Whether the bot shows in-game chat.
bSetTopic Whether the bot changes the topic, if this is set to
false, the bot displays the data to the channel instead
of setting the topic.
bNoStatus Disables the showing of status updates (normally shown
in the topic).
ScoreShowFrequency The time (in seconds) between displaying the
names and scores of the players on each time.
Set to 0 to disable.
bNoAttackMsg When set to false, the powernode and core 'under attack'
messages are not shown when reporting an ONS match.
bQuiet Bot will slow only score updates and joins/parts.
bDebug Normally false. When set to true, the conversation
between the bot and the IRC server is logged into the
server log file.
These are fairly self-explanatory. The colours are the IRC colour
numbers. Eg: 04 is normally red, 03 a green colour. Just change the
values for whatever colours you want to use.
The bot will drop connection every level change, and may sometimes
flood itself off IRC. In each case it will reconnect as soon as it can.
If the bot is kicked, it will try to rejoin the channel.
It might be an idea to run an ident server on the bot, to expedite its
connecting to an IRC server.
