We used to run a old mod from pcube called chatlink. it lets multiple unreal servers communicate between each other using udp link and java. a few years ago i stopped using it since some people started abusing it by sending spam from 3rd party servers. then i forgot about it for a while.
I am going to start running a chatlink master again ,
if people who want to setup there unreal server’s to join the chat , i can provide the original mod and login info and a message coloring mod to color code each servers chat ., and server or service that follows the chatlink protocol can join.
the original mod its a simple serverside unrealscript mod that like 42kb. i believe it can even run out the box in ut99.
I am working on a new build of unreal chatmod tho for 227 , that will have auto colorization , some server commands ( such as #players , # map that will dump the current info to teamspeak etc), maybe the ability to send server commands or pm’s bewteen servers, idk how far i want to expand it.
a screenshot of the colored chats.
Its very easy just using a gamerule to disallow certain servers chat from broadcasting onto your servers , if you worry about abuse later. ill probably add allow/disallow config in my future version
i say this becuase the shit that we say/paste on teamspeak can easily include links to 4chan , reddit , and other area inapropoate for all audenences ,
The even better stuff.
now that i run 2 servers , and my freinds run servers and the website , and stuff , i have been meaning to somhow link irc to unreal. noone could really help me to much , so it sat on the backburner. in the proccess of messing with that i discovered that there is a teamspeak api for java.
we live on teamspeak , and by live , i mean some of us usally keep connected 24/7 even while we sleep.
i tried to mess with java but i really didnt understand how to do that much so i talked to be friend that deals java and while he was on on break from college , he started working on something for us that is really awesome , it is a java app that links teamspeak 3 serverchat to and from chatlink.
you can see a working example
