OMG ! I'm so updating B3 right away to add the !recordstart <player> and !recordstop <player> commands

any chance to have builds for windows ?


you should also make a setting that can have b3 auto record a player the second they join with or without notice

You would need to constantly dump because it would take up ALOT of space.

To prevent polluting this topic with B3 related stuff, I created another topic dedicated to what can be done on the B3 side to take advantage of the server-side demo recording.

This is great, but I would like to point out that mission has made several improvements that I think the B3 author would find most useful and I don't think you've added. The features were added after he and I hashed out what would be needed from an automation standpoint to make use of it.

Come to think of it, he's made several other server commands and modifications that would be very useful after we spent quite a bit of time discussing useful commands. Specifically:

* Change multiple cvars in one fell swoop with one command remotely instead of one at a time

* Get the value of multiple cvars with one command without needing to get everything and the kitchen sink with cvarlist

* Feedback when you set a cvar instead of dead silence like the default which leaves you wondering whether the packet was dropped (i.e. no need to validate a cvar being set in automation with yet another rcon command)

Really, you should just add him as a dev (assuming he is interested). He's a coding beast.

If you have such a thing, add me as part of a think tank on ways to improve the server build for automation and such. It seems like 99.99% of the suggestions you get are from the players about the front-end as you would expect. I'm not sure how much you get from server admins discussing the back-end. I don't have my CCIE like evilelf, but I've poked and prodded at the server build more than most except perhaps the B3 author(s?).

Oh and one more thing -- the I/O if you record all on a large multi-server is not non-trivial. My estimates are ~4K per second per player. If you are running a box with multiple large servers, you should consider utilizing a RAM drive for this.

thanks div, i do have alot of time i can spend to coding.
some other features were cvar sv_autodemo that would cause the server to automatically record a demo when the player joins the game. the ability to specify an optional demo name on startserverdemo command incase u need to know what its called specifically for automation purposes.etc..

anyways, appreciate the update Barbatos!

You should credit MadProfessor and Mission on your github.
