PostSubject: Tourney announcer (aka Rio)   Sat Jun 14, 2008 10:31 pm

Some of you will have seen Rio in #AG and #PT during my last tourney. Basically it is a 'bot' which I used to announce the last tourney and so fourth.

What I intend to do with it is act as a TuT Tourney announcer.


The features I will try to set up

- The tourney organiser can set up an announcer through Rio - rules, map link, scheme link and so on can be inputted (the players then just message !riohelp to get the rules via PM). Rio will then start announcing and also go into the channel that the tourney is in.
- Players can sign up to the tourney by PMing Rio. They say Yes for being able to host and No if they cannot. Players can withdraw as well. The organiser can then send a command to Rio to see the list of players. Once 16 / xx players have signed up then rio then stops accepting signups. The list is then announced.

Thats the initial setup, half of it I have completed.

After that, I could get it to randomly assign players, get results sent in, and so on. Thats a bit more complicated and would need a bit more time on.

Obviously there will need to be a password to protect it from unauthorised usage.

FNIbot is on 24/7 rabbiting around

Rio will only turn on when someone starts a tourney - and not 2 days in advance

It would be a PM when you join though

Rio's a great bot, nice to see 'he' will be available for everyone.

I've got a question. Is Rio going to run on your web server or on your Windows box? From what I remember from the mole tourney, Rio is run via mIRC. And one more question related to this, will you have to "turn him on" every time someone hosts a tourney or will it be somehow automated? (I imagine we could have some Rio-tourney-registration page, or Rio could get the dates of the tourneys from the site's database somehow.)

Like you have correctly identified, Rio is powered by mIRC, and it will run on my old laptop (converted into a server, which is called rio ^^)

For now the tourney will have to be started with something like !tourneystart . I will leave Rio in #Help channel, and then he will go into AG and RH/PT (whatever channel)

For a web interface, I do not know if I can use MySQL with mIRC scripting yet - Ill look into it

OK Now Rio is in jepoardy here. The server I was using (RIO) to host Rio has gone down with a sudden case of Hard Disk Failure and the work I have put into it has slowly faded away and I can't get it off!

Oh the pain! pale pale pale pale

Some of it (the bulk of it used in IRC @ #worms / #blamethepixel / #OSP / #Hypnos) I sent off to someone, and I got it back.

The rest, i gotta type up again.

Once I got it back, Ill get WINE running on my webserver and see what happens
