I hadn't actually checked what all you've added in a while. It's incredible how much work you put into this.

Thanks.

 

Before, I was using Apple's Pages app to work on it. Pages is one of the best word processing applications I've ever used, but after one update, tables stopped fitting on the page properly.

 

Google Docs has matured enough to the point where I'm fine with using that. Also, people can view the document online or download the latest version in any of these formats:

  • .docx (tables are rendered a little funky and table headers have an extra newline)
  • .odt (tables are rendered a little funky and table headers have an extra newline)
  • .rtf (tables are rendered funky. some RTF editors like WordPad don't even render the pages correctly and the table of contents may be broken)
  • .pdf (this is the most problem-free document which is what I use for uploading offline copies of the documentation)
  • .txt (because some people's word processor is notepad.exe - destroys tables, separating the cells only with line breaks)
  • .html (table of contents isn't properly formatted and the page width is limited to what was on the document which looks funky on 1080p)

I thought I would include a helpful hint here based on my experience. For anyone who happens to read this in the future.  If anyone is hosting a server on Elite Game Servers and puts the

sj_level

command into your SAPP init text file. It will break the server. You have to use it in your events. Something like

event_start 'sj_level 5'

This may not crash other servers as I have only tested it on Elite, but its something to look out for.

I'm with Elite Servers and have this in my event file also. One question on this though, there's not much info in the sapp documentation about the levels - which level would be used for admin only ? I don't want everyone to have access to sightjacker. 

 

Talking of Eliteservers - I still can't get my banlist file to work - ipbanlist works fine. If someone is banned then it isn't written to the banlist file ie. b [playerid]. It's strange, I've never been able to get this working.. tried everything. The ban works when it's implemented, but as soon as the server is restarted the ban is cleared.
