  • [QUOTE=Kogitsune;13719969][url=http://wiki.garrysmod.com/wiki/?title=Input.IsKeyDown]Input.IsKeyDown[/url][/QUOTE] 1) I have never ever (and I have tried quite alot of times) got that to work. 2) It asks for a number, and due to the nature, it means I would need to cycle through every possible key (once I figure out all the numbers...) and check if they are down in a think hook. 3) If people have low FPS, then it is near impossible to type. 4) If people have high FPS, then the text speeds out so fast its also impossible to type. 5) Any sort of flagging which is used to delay time between character entries is very complicated for just 1 key, let alone 50. 6) The flagging (mentioned above) would make the lag (especially in a think hook) unbearable. 7) Binds would continue to run, screwing up alot of stuff (even with the player locked). 8) There was another reason, but I can't remember. The only way I could add in input (without binary module) is if garry added some sort of hook like this: [lua]gui.CaptureInput( true ) -- Starts input capture gui.GetTextBuffer() -- Gets what has been typed (I think theres a windows-level hook that does this, not sure how Source does it) gui.ClearTextBuffer() -- Clears the buffer hook.Add( "TextBufferChanged", "blah", function( newbuffer ) print( "newbuffer = gui.GetTextBuffer!" ) end )[/lua]

(The top one will add to the custom tab, the bottom one will add to whatever tab you like).

  • Quick thing, and I know I'm retarded, but what are the advantages to a server? Or better put, what does it do? And every computer needs its own router, right?

I have both of their IP's set to the same, but nothing happens. Does this have to do with a server too?

  • [QUOTE=thomasfn;13720642]Have you wired them together correctly?[/QUOTE] Well, how do you wire them correctly? I tried clicking 1 entity then another. Err, I tried connecting all to that valve thingy.

So to connect it, you'd click on the Computer Tower, click on VGI Display, then click on the Monitor, and click VGI Display. You do the same for the keyboard, which is a ps2 connection, the splitter, which is a mini jack. For the speakers, you hook it up to the splitter. And for the printer, you hook it up to the USB port.

  • @Achilles123: The reason this benefits a server, is because it's good for role playing reasons. And is fun to have on big wire contraptions. And to make them chat, the routers need to be connected. Wireless isn't an option at the moment i don't think. You could try setting the wires to 0 so they're invisible. @FullStreak12: Go back a page and scroll down, it says how to add songs. I believe iTune files won't work.

  • I just tried this on my server (it uses cakescript as a base) and the whole gamemode stopped working, probably because there is no plugin for cakescript, would this be hard to make? And oh by the way, this mod is AWESOME! Regards, Pete

Once on my server and once on the beta a small white screen with options(probably that VGI) popped up for a second but instantly dissapeared, not time enought to read what was on it either.

  • ... Click Quite type and type in whatever, then hit enter. But remember to click the box you want to type in first. If I see someone ask this again, I'm gonna rage.

  • I didn't quite understand how does the saving the hard disk works. I mean, with the adv dupe, you simply copy and paste it and it should paste correctly with your hard disk?

Dupe compatability is such a pain... but your entities will still spawn properly, you won't get weird password problems and other issues like in PCMod 1.

  • Yes i remember that, was very annoying Again, I have another problem, while trying to get the SWEPs, i choose the stool from the menu, choose the swep, right click, and i hear the sound when you pick up a weapon, but it doesn't happear in the weapon selection. It once happened to happear some time after I had used the stool, but it doesn't seem to happen again
  • I was just playing with this, it's pretty cool, but the display is a bit ugly compared to PCMod 1, which is a shame. But overall this is excellent.
