My review of the last version of this utility:
I suppose the biggest change I see for this little application is the color. I'm guessing that Accident took Wade's comment about the green color to heart and changed it to a dark blue. It is a bit easier on the eyes. I never used the app myself, so I can only tell you the changes from what the readme says. The Auto Replier is a good replacement for Kill Trackers, if you want something for auto messages and for running your WinAmp. There's also a minimizer included, so you can toss your other minimizers into your recycle bin.
It's nice to see an application that combines so many things into one, so you can save on space and save on running so many programs at once. The only bug I recall was that you could really increase the amount of spam in a server by typing something like "AmosMagee has entered the server" and the auto replier would kick in. I believe Nikita (one of my admins for the JK3Files server) showed me that bug. Gah. Can't stand spam like that. Anyway, it seems that Accident fixed that bug, though he didn't elaborate on it in the readme, so I'm not sure.
Well, since I haven't much else to say about this latest version, I'll just quote show you what the new features are for this version:
-User has option of viewing the playlist at the side or at the bottom This will allow people who have their desktop resolutions set to 800x600 to now modify the playlist -Added !commands to list all available commands in the console -Added in game !now function to display system date and time -Added playlist menu bar -Fixed the /clear bug; it no longer spams the console. -The self inflicting death will now work with female skins -End of duel messages now work correctly with people who have long names (I think..) -Fixed the bug where the playlist would sometimes not play the selected song -Randomized the time at when the round end messages appear; this will hopefully make it so the messages will appear more often

TO do colors you would use the ^3 and whatnot characters. Type %d to insert the person your dueling into the message, and type %s to insert your name into the message (although I dont see why you would want to use %s) You can save and load the messages to wherever u want by using the file menu. In the customize messages menu, you can enable/disable any of the custom messages you want. In the greeting message, you can insert %d for the person who entered the game. You can load saved files from in game by typing !load <filename> So for example lets say I saved a file as main.arp I could load this file from in game by typing !load main (do not type in the .arp) Click the Playlist button to set up a Playlist (you can make it appear at the side by unclicking the "show playlist on bottom" checkbox.) You can add a whole folder of songs by clicking the folder button, or a single song at a time by the song button. You can save your playlist by clicking the corresponding button. -------------- In Game Commands --------------- *Note, dont type the <> part in any of the following commands, this is just to show where the user input is required. !commands ---> Displays all the available commands with description !now ---> Displays the system date and time !load <filename> ---> Loads the file that has the replies. So for example lets say I saved a file as main.arp I could load this file from in game by typing !load main (do not type in the .arp) !playlist <filename> --> Loads the playlist file. !replyOff ---> turns off the program !replyon ---> turns the program on (Note: the program is initially in 'On' state) !listsongs ---> Lists all the songs in playlist. Please note, this command is a bit buggy and will sometimes clear the console after doing this. Also, the columns are messy :/ !play <part of song name> ---> Will play the song you typed. You can type !play auth to start the song "Points Of Authority". Also, just typing !play on its own will bring it out of pause state. !pause ---> Pauses the current song. type !play to start it again !stop ---> Stops the playback of the current song. !next ---> Goes to the next song in the playlist. !prev ---> Goes to the previous song in the playlist. !vol <#> ---> To change the volume. 0 is the lowest, and 20 is the loudest. The program defaults to 15 !mini ---> minimizes the game instantly. A button will appear on the main form for you to press to return you back to the game. Credits: ==================================================================== Brent Douglas. This guy provided the code on how to actually communicate with the quake 3 console.. I just had to modify it so it would communicate with JKA's. Without him, I would not of been able to do this. I would also like to thank [LC] TK-8252 for helping me test the crap out of my program. We went threw endless duels and whatnot to get it working. He also was the one who told me to make it:p Also, I would like to thank all the clients on the server that I was testing my program for baring with me for the endless spam I went threw to test the different commands. Known Bugs: ==================================================================== THis program is not programed for the XMOD admin mod servers. XMOD has changed some of the duel win and lose messages, and my program does not interpret them. However, all the rest of the commands should work fine. This program works fine under base servers, ja+ servers, and JAR servers. If you find any bugs, please inform me of them and ill try to fix them. Legal Stuff: ==================================================================== Yeah I know no one reads this.. but whatever.. I am in no way responsible for any harm this program may cause, even though the odds of that happening are insignificant. You may freely distribute the EXE, so long as this ReadMe (along with the program) remains with it, intact, and unmodified. This program is not supported by id, RavenSoft, or LucasArts.
