Ello, I have seen the following command:

game.addPlayerToBuddyList [ID]

Which obviously adds an in game player to a Buddy List.

and

game.buddyList

Prints a list of your current buddies.

My question is, what good does it do you to have someone on your buddy list? Can you find a "buddy" once they are on my list?

I need info!! Please!

P.s. I presume the [ID] is the # number when you tab the screen?

Hi MattMarlin,

I haven't tried it myself, but in theory it is supposed to mark your buddies on the mini map so you can find them really easy.

Have fun

I often use the buddylist thing, because in 1.4, it remembers from game to game who is on your list. What it does it mark your buddy's minimap arrow as green (light green), and whenever he shoots some., gets shot or dies, the "sentence" will be light green also. That should clear things up

So is there a different interface other than having to go into the command line and type in that so and so is my buddy based on the id.

I want to point and click!!!!!!! I am lazy!!!!!! Having had to use command line unix systems for a year VAX, AIX, SCO, etc. I have depleated my want to type anymore... :fistpunch:

na, you'd have to settle with writing game.AddPlayerToBuddyList #ID Although i think (Don't know for sure) you can write AddBuddy #ID ┬┤just like that...

Right then, that is going to be my mission in life.

I am going to write a visual interface for Battlefield 1942 which displays all players, probably in a grid, that allows you to sort of thier name, number of kills, etc.

Then you can press a button and it will add it to your buddy list. It will also come up with a visual display of buddy list along with the player's profile.

Or I might just logon, and run around like a headless chicken shooting people, ... badly!!!!!

Damn my lack of concertraition!!!!!!:talker:

I think EA messed up hardcore with the buddy system. Instead of everyone getting a new ID when they log on to each server, we should have gotten a specific number when we installed the 1.4 patch. That way you don't have to add people again if you go to a different server and whatnot. Sure, the numbers would get large, but it would be much more convenient if the numbers were constant
