Hello,

our ex SoS player Ito (aka Ichi) writed a little program in perl. The program shows where your friends (from a friendlist) are playing and you can directly join to server in which they are playing.
An example:
Code:
:: Starting OPENARENA FRIENDS FINDER v0.4
:: Copyright 2010 Simone Sclavi 'Ito'
:: This is free software with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY
:: For details type 'v' in the menu below
::
:: getting players...

   [2] LoL-Elendr1L ROFL CTF 4 FISHES 0.8.5
              10/12    ctf    oa_ctf4ish
   [3] /GaNja/^L!ght3r PURPLE DEFRAG
              5/18    dm    dkr02
   [4] betA,SilentCobra PURPLE DEFRAG
              5/18    dm    dkr02

:: # AVAILABLE COMMANDS #
:: [number] choose friend from 'friends list'(if present)
:: [s:number] show stats of the server your friend is playing in
:: [r] refresh friends list
:: [l] launch OA without connecting to any server

:: [q] quit program
::
 >1
:: preparing to reach *SoS*Adr!aNo
ioq3+oa 1.36 linux-i386 Jan  3 2010
[cut]


Since version 0.4 you can see also stats of the server where a friend is playing (ping, frags and more):
Code:
:: # AVAILABLE COMMANDS #
:: [number] choose friend from 'friends list'(if present)
:: [s:number] show stats of the server your friend is playing in
:: [r] refresh friends list
:: [l] launch OA without connecting to any server
:: [v] print version and license information
:: [q] quit program

DOWNLOAD:
oaff 0.4.1 (manual included)
oaff 0.4 (manual down here)
I recommend you to download oaff 0.4.1.
The program works on GNU/Linux and on MS Windows. License: GNU GPL3












Manual for oaff 0.4:


Instruction (GNU/Linux):

The program requires Perl> = 5.10 (normally installed by default), plus two modules usually downloaded through the repository, LWP and HTML: TokeParser:: Simple
For example, if you are using Ubuntu just run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libwww-perl libhtml-tokeparser-simple-perl

If you have installed from your distrobutions repositories, no need to do anything at this point, just run the program with
Code:
$ perl oaff.pl
or by giving execute permission (for example with chmod u + x oaff.pl)
Code:
$ ./oaff.pl
.

Otherwise you will need to open the file with a text editor and identify
the following piece of code:
Code:
   when ('linux')
    {
        $OPENARENA_BIN =  q{openarena};
        #uncomment the following lines if you didn't install oa from repository
        #and change q{openarena} with q{./openarena.i386} or
        #q{./openarena.x86_64} according to your system
        #
        #$OPENARENA_PATH = q{/home/simone/Desktop/openarena-0.8.1};
        #chdir $OPENARENA_PATH || die "ERROR! Check your installation!\n";
    }

Done this you are going to remove the '#' sign from the last two lines and replace '/ home/simone/Desktop/openarena-0.8.1' with your path of installation. You must also correct the executable OpenArena, replacing q{openarena} with q{./openarena.i386} o q{./openarena.x86_64}  based on your machine. So I recommend to install from the repositories of your distro and all get well.





Instruction (Windows):


There are several ports of Perl for Windows, I recommend you to install ActivePerl because it has a convenient graphic manager package for installation of optional modules from CPAN.
Take out the latest release from here (http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/releases/5.12.1.1201/ActivePerl-5.12.1.1201-MSWin32-x86-292674.msi) and install it. When installation completed, open "Perl Package Manager" (under All Programs> ActivePerl), then select View menu> All Packages.
After that write in the search bar "HTML-TokeParser-Simple", select from the menu below and click the right mouse button and "Install".Then repeat the process this time looking for "Win32-Process-Info".
Start the installation of modules selected by clicking the green arrow (it is right of the search bar).

Finally open oaff.pl with a text editor (NOT notepad, use wordpad, but I recommend Notepad + + (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/)) and locate the following code:
Code:
   when (/^mswin/)
    {
        $OPENARENA_BIN = q{openarena.exe};
        #IMPORTANT! change with full path of your oa installation!
        $OPENARENA_PATH = q{C:\Documents and Settings\Simone\Desktop\openarena-0.8.1};
        chdir $OPENARENA_PATH || die "ERROR! Check your installation!\n";
    }

Replace "C: \ Documents and Settings \ Simon \ Desktop \ OpenArena-0.8.1"
with the path of your installation and then you are ready to run and oaff.pl by simply double clicking on it.


If you want that the program close automatically when you are reaching a friend, then do this:
- create a new text file in the same folder as oaff.pl
- write this in it:
Code:
perl oaff.pl -t
- rename to "oaff.bat" and launch it
____________________________________________


You can modify the friendlist in oaff.pl (now on line 179). For now it contains this:
Code:
my @friends = (
                'Evil|',
                'supeR,',
                '*SoS*',
                '=SC=',
                '[CZ]',
                'GoD',
                'betA,',
                'Fu$!oN',
                'LoL',
                '/GaNja/',
                '(sos)',
                'RN|',
                '(alPha)',
                '/NIN/',
                'Fu$!0n',
                'CreW/',
                'Var',
            );


BB and a big THX to Ito.

oaff 0.3.1 came out:
http://clansos.sosforum.net/go/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5tZGZyLz9xNjJteW4yNnJmaDFoODM=
The little different to the previous version is that the special symbols in the friendlist aren't in need anymore. So just type in normal like this:
Code:
my @friends = (
                'Evil|',
                'supeR,',
                '*SoS*',
                '=SC=',
                '[CZ]',
                'GoD',
                'betA,',
                'Fu$!oN',
                'LoL',
                '/GaNja/',
                '(sos)',
                'RN|',
                '(alPha)',
                '/NIN/',
                'Fu$!0n',
                'CreW/',
                'Var',
            );

This is a question that only Ito (aka Ichi) can answer. You can write directly in english here: http://clansos.sosforum.net/links-downloads-f8/script-per-oa-t296-15.htm#3787

You may ask him to release the script to some open license, so that there are no specific authorizations needed.
I suppose this script was made to be useful, no need to protect it by "copyright" which is a vast joke made by guys who thought they had invented hot water.

Cacatoes, Ito saw your message and said that he will release the next script with an open license (maybe GPL) to make shure that everyone can use it.

Tried it, works... just had to be careful when editing stuff like PATH and "./" ".i386" for the BIN.
However, I mainly use XQF which allows the same things, so I'll likely won't have much use of it.
It might still be useful for some command-line guys.

Hosted the script there: http://download.tuxfamily.org/openarena/other/oaff/0.4/oaff.pl

Ok I will add it in the day Smiley

Or for Windows user, or any other plateform where you can run the required libraries.

/Edit : Done Smiley and it's great that you have set the license to GPL v3 !

Because there are various links around this thread, so I'm a bit confused, and I don't know exactly what to link... and placing there a download link without a link to the instructions would be not good, since it isn't simply "download ad run", but needs Perl.... To link the instructions, shall we link this forum thread or is somewhere a web page that contains them, too?

So, I'd prefer if the creator of the tool could add the right links himself...

Trivial problems, aren't they ? Copy any information shamelessly and do for the best ?

Excuse me, what do you mean? I don't think that copying all the instructions to have OAFF working in (DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Servers#Tools section would be the best solution (that page is more focused on other things)... If needed, we could place them in a separate page of the Wiki, but maybe having an "official" site (or page) for OAFF and simply link that site would be better...

Good. Smiley I updated DO NOT LINK[/b]) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/OpenArena_Friends_Finder]the Wiki page. If you want, you can update it by yourself the next time.

PS: I noticed the "save and quit" button in the screenshot... what about a "quit without saving" button, too?
