Unnecessary Messenger System - +txt code


  • Coder

    I brought this up and got some feedback in a previous post. It's all done now! The code is install and working (???) on Fate's Harvest, as my beta. I installed in City of Shadows (in development) to test my own install code, and it seems to be working. So, here it is!

    https://github.com/skewskewskew/MUSHCode/blob/master/Unnecessary Messenger System <ums>

    A quick note: There's a lot of notes. You need SQL and Cron. There's some staff-side settings. I did what I could to document but if you copy+paste into Muxify without reading, it probably won't work.

    To repeat: It needs SQL. If you don't have SQL it won't work!

    Help files are included! If you need help with anything just message me.

    And why is it unnecessary? Just ask your game's coder if a thorough +txt suite is needed! 😉

    And some samples...

    The chances of finding out what’s really going on in the universe are so remote, the only thing to do is hang the sense of it and keep yourself occupied.

    Also had to ninja-update and secure() a thing. All good now. In theory.

    I wish you'd named it Totally Unnecessary Messenger System.

    Cause I need TUMS.

    I have to concur. Please address this issue.


  • Coder

    As the creator of the Stupid Phone Code, I not only concur, but I might accidentally rename it to TUMS wherever I find it.

    ("Ums" is good, mind, as that's what I do when thinking what to text. I go "Um" multiple times. Ums.)

    @auspice do we really think tums beats ums?

    Uuummmmm idk I'll think about it.

    She could have suggested "COMPLETELY" instead of "TOTALLY".

    ...

    ...

    I'll show myself out.

    just do it, we're all gonna call it that anyway



  • Well, when it's inevitably expanded to include phone calls... it'll be the Totally Redundant and Unnecessary Messaging and Phone System.

    I've done a few minor updates/bug fixes. Feel free to poke me, or just check the github, to see what was fixed.

    And finally, (t)UMS has been converted to be Rhost friendly. Anyone using Rhost that is looking for totally unnecessary messenger system can find it here:
    https://github.com/skewskewskew/MUSHCode/blob/master/unnecessary messenger system RHOST.txt

    This is designed to be used with the SGP/basics install of Rhost (the one that comes with "Globals: CRON - Myrddin's" already installed). Big thanks to @Ashen-Shugar for not only helping with the conversion but also updating Rhost itself to do the things I wanted it to do.
