Shadowrun 5e - Logger for karma - post to web functionality?



  • Re: Loggers

    I have installed PennMUSH for my game, and am attempting to work out the best possible solution for karma distribution. I've decided that karma will be linked to logs, and those logs will be submitted to a public forum/wiki/site that can be reviewed by players for karma to make sure that there's no tomfoolery happening.

    What I'd like the log to do is:
    Start the log, and have it record all players whether emitting as a GM or participating as a player. (So, utilizing NoSpoof to know who's posing).
    Then at the end when it is done, it will return a certain # of karma for the amount of characters created by each player. If the log is never finished, it will not distribute the karma.
    The log will show up on the forums under either just RP logs, or Plot Logs.
    Plot logs will be reviewable for karma, and payouts by the player base (there's a way this scales but is unimportant at this point in time, and also a way this is reviewed to make sure people are reviewing properly).

    I started with PennMUSH and was going to initially utilize Volund's SceneSys code. During this process I'm having issues uploading the XML page, mediawiki isn't the easiest thing to deal with in my situation, and other issues. So, I'm looking for an alternate solution, even possibly someone to help code it.

    The previous post here I thought would work well, but this is Rhost and I'm on PennMush and I'm kind of learning code as I go - to try and make a Shadowrun 5e MU* a reality again.

    Would this be the current best situation? Or might there be an alternative? Would someone be willing to help me walk through the process? I have SQL installed on my digital ocean server, I have PennMUSH running, I also have a few objects I've built but I have no qualms with changing the base (probably not to Evennia since that's too advanced for me I think).

    Help, pointers, locations, anything is helpful at this point!

    Thanks in advance,

    Nessa.



  • Volund has a system that works sort of like that way. It'll log stuff to sql and then allow them to copy it into a log page. It's not quite automatic, but it works.



  • ixokai (RIP, sniffle) posted a logger system for PennMUSH. It makes the log output available in a format that folks can just copy/paste onto a wikidot wiki (like Marvel 1963's). It's not automated, but it makes it pretty easy for players to post logs.

    I don't know how far you are into actually coding the SR-specific code or how attached you are to PennMUSH, but you could also consider AresMUSH (still in beta), which lets players share logs seamlessly with the integrated web portal. (example)



  • I'm not attached to any system right now. I've done a lot of loading of stuff from Volund's list of stuff to be able to do a scene logger. That said, I can do a dump of my objects and incorporate them into MUSH code.

    The objective is to be automatic for the posting because that eliminates a lot of player driven errors, cheating, etc. You either post and you get karma, or you run a private scene with it's own rewards.

    When I click on AresMUSH it seems to be situated as though it's a link but the link doesn't bring me anywhere?



  • I just searched for AresMUSH and am going with that installation to see how it works.

    For future readers, the link in @faraday's post has been corrected so that it works now.



  • There is auto-log-posting stuff on Exalted-MU... Let me see if I can dig up the coder's... er... code page.

    That's Volund's stuff.

    I hope to be Volund when I grow up.

    Shhh. In order to make a suit of his skin he has to be unsuspecting.
