The new functions for friendlist and personal banlist

I added some functions to the forum and the servers regarding personal preferences, friendlists and banlists. I hope with the new functions we don't have to deal with the complaints forum with such intensity like we do at the moment and use the time for more development or simply playing the game. So here we go:

If you go to biopanel.php you can see your personal page for the settings.

- "Your player statistics are public": This is needed for the upcoming player database and showing individual statistics to others or keep them private.

- "Who can join rooms you host": You can define how others can join rooms you are hosting. There are currently three options available:
  • * Everybody can join
    * Only people on your friendlist can join (everyone else gets a "friends only" message when attempting to join your game)
    * Everybody not on your banlist can join (your banned users get a "personal ban" message when attempting to join your game)
After saving preferences they are used ingame the very same moment.

To add a user on your friend- or banlist you simply have to know one of their ingame handles (the 6 characters long) and enter that into the inputbox and press the add-button. You won't see the handle in your lists but the assigned userid. That way you don't have to enter every handle of a friend.

To remove a user from your lists you have to enter their userid and press the remove-button.

The link is available via "GamePrefs" on the top of the forum header.

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1553&p=13261#p13261
It has been demanded several times, so here it is:

See you personal player statistics online!

Simply follow this link: istats_f2.php

Currently this only works for File#2 but File#1 is in the works...
Also, you can only see your own player statistics but with the upcoming changes it will be possible to see the statistics of other players in the near future (if they allow them to be public).

So, stay tuned ;)

Yay, but my question was, how can I see other's, since the players can already set their stats public or private.

The feature to see other peoples statistics is not available at the moment but will be in the near future...

The answer is, you can't. Those are functions coming together with the file#1 stats.

I'm sure this will help with a lot of the complaints forums, thanks so much fog. Question though: just out of curiosity since I currently have my ps2 put away, what message is displayed when someone is denied access to a room? Is it specific as to saying limited to friend or you are on ban list? or does the room itself just not show up?

The room shows up clearly for all, its upon attempting to join when the specific message will be visible. Its kind of like when you join a room, pick a character, and then it says room full and boots you because you took too long to pick a character and someone took your spot.

If they have Friends-only selected in their preferences, the pop-up message says FRIENDS ONLY.

If they have Everyone but banned selected in their preferences, it will say something about being banned as to why you cant join.
