(dod:s) wcs is dead
« on: July 03, 2008, 07:21:07 AM »
sorry for the headline but steam updated dod:s tonite. eventscripts and est arent working at all. WCS isn't obviously either. I think CS:S is next. They put orange box as the  engine. I googled so many keywords it is silly. If I cant get this back up soon I am done with servers .

 :cry: :cry: Why did they do that?  :cry: :cry:
I don't care for dods, but if WCS doesn't run on CSS servers anymore... it would be the end of one of the greatest mods...
Hum... Will other mods like DM or RPG still work?
If they still work, then, we have to hope WCS C++ will come soon.

Would Eventscripts work if we did not update our server?

yes, thats a real problem.

Most of the plugins (like Mani, ES/EST) may not work after this update.
Mani already runs very unstable with TF2 (which is orange box engine, too), and DOD:S just got that update, CS:S will follow.

The bad thing is, if EST will not work anymore and Awu0h told he will not update it anymore, WCS is will lose many nice functions -.-

Berett, how would you prevent an update?? Online servers has to be updated, because every client will have that update, too.

how about we just spam steam or something?

And what exactly does the orange box do for the engine that the HL2 engine can't?
Need help?

hum... idk...
but we could spam Steam...
but that would be useless... they would just take our ips and ban them i think...
we should make a petition...
If 60% of the players sign it, they can't deny it and continue their update...

OK so here it is, I have a version of WCS that works for the new DOD:S but gotta test a bit. Basically they updated it with Orange Box so now only the new EventScripts coming out will work. But the EventScripts coming out only supports Windows, not Linux. Soon the orange box update will be coming for CS:S, and NO ONE'S WCS will work. Basically, you have to tweak your WCS or re-write it. I was surprised that the WCS community did not know this.

if est will not work, is it the end for everything?
i'm sure ES will release patch to make work with new version.
What is this orange box? i don't get it  ;) What's the difference between orange and the one we are using now?

I'm sure everything will be fine, the worst is that you will have to work without EST. But i think est_effect will still work since i don't think they are going to change SDK calls for effects.

The EST  -> ES conversion begins !!

Will ES Python work ? as a way to circumvent the absence of est ?
also

The WCS community may want to start rewriting the EST skills into ES and making WCS commands out of them!!

For instance change
teleport block for human to
say  WCS_telepot..
Then create a teelport function - using es_xsetpos

Another words use a lot of functions and code them for the community so that people don't have to relearn ES since most people use EST
