One more Feature request (reasonable)

Postby Terminator » 26 Jun 2016, 18:37

How about (and who can) make warzone to sent useful data like: research events (completed\started), scores, gamestats (kills, loses, etc from mp_menu ) and most important states of a game (started (player list), WIN\LOSE\Disconnect events) and gameLobbyID (sid). All this just simply send to local stdout (dont sent it over net or something), even raw binary without preparations (however it would be nice to have some kind of protocol ) :roll: How hard it could be to do this ?

This will help a lot at creating useful external apps like launcher on which I have been working for quite a while.

Quick idea: perhaps you can try different --debug= levels and parse the output?

Not sure if it would be used, but I would not be opposed to adding it, if someone else did the work. It is the kind of thing that has to be coded by the person doing the design on the frontend. Coding a protocol like that in the dark simply won't work.

I would definitely use that in my project, the guy who made a WZBlue would do something it that time.
Well we need some kind of tool for gathering data (better later that never). So put this all on 3rd party app. or at least give them something they can work with.

I may do that if anyone from dev team would spent some time to do stuff on warzone's source code side.

Btw: a few new warzone's command line would help a lot too with a whole picture
