Request: Read kill statistics from GTA2

Post by Razor »

Hi, i would like to ask sb to do software with will work like that:

Software will read informations from GTA2 likes like:

Player x commited suicide
Player y killied player x.
You wasted player x.

Also frags of players. And then will create raports of match.

eg:

23:32 - Magnus killied Razor. State: Magnus 1 : 0 Razor

I just wrote simply example if its doable and sb want to take that case i can give details :>

Replay file just contains keystrokes. Kill information would have to be read from RAM or the exe could be modified to make it easy for other programs to read it.

i know there was talk about that and you have it in your TODO list, but i would like to move things faster cose this feature could be used in many ways. Eg if you can also gain way of killing and make software (gta2/gh/or whatever) to do logs and save them then you can create online statistic + easly take care of tournaments/ sparings :> i think this feature will bring us a nice bag of new players and make some ghost (players that dont play anymore) to back.

It does not contain "location" information? Else you can just read the reply file and when the location is a start position it's -1. However you don't know who killed who, lol.

I google on read from RAM, nothing useful. Is that possible? Like a hook? Perhaps vike knows more...

It would be tough to find in RAM. It would be best if Vike just outputs the stats to a file, a hidden control or even the titlebar.

I spoke to Sektor about this already and decided that title bar was easiest. Now to find time to do it :P

When this is implemented, we can have a big international tournament. :D

Al thought, the ping might make it a more localised international tournament.

Various national or continental tournaments already take place. They are run by other forums around the web, or informally within Game Hunter.

I'd use it for personal statistics or sending information to the channel during/after the game. I could make an automatically updated leaderboard but it would easy to cheat it.
