CE Gamers CSS WCS Server
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:25:34 PM »
Honestly, I was strictly curious on who the owner/head programmer for the CE Gamers WCS servers were. I'm very interested in how a lot of their races work considering I am a low level programmer but a high level fan of the Warcraft Mod for CSS. If anyone knows a way to get a hold of him, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

That would propably be joshtrav. Have a look at http://www.cegamer.com

To quote joshtrav on how their servers work:

At http://www.cegamer.com we run SourceMod with a custom extension that ports SM's natives to Python 3.2.2

From there its really just a long time of trial and error to get things the way they are.  We often share and help other servers when diagnosing crashes, but our software isn't a "cookie cutter" setup.  Such that someone new to coding, or even relatively intermediate would be able to jump into.

There is very little in the way of documentation and 100s of imports.  We have custom coded everything, not just WCS.  The admin, the interfaces, console interaction, links to our website's API, etc.

On how their races work, thats not something that can be said without knowing what race you mean exactly and what it does.

And you should not expect jostrav or anyone else to just give you stuff. They worked very hard to make their server special and while you can try and ask them how they have done it you should not be disappointed if they do not like to share.

If you see a particular race and can describe on the forum how they work, there sure are people that can help you with that though :)
