So, I’ve checked around and nowhere a quick google and Steam scavenging has lead me has given me any satiating answers. I’ve tried to set up my own scoreboard you see, however I know very minimal Lua and so I could not get anything done properly, and thus I have resorted to sticking with the default scoreboard - which I’m complacent with. I do however have one request that I simply very much want for my server that is a really stupid and odd thing that I feel like I need, but how can I remove the entire “ping” column from the scoreboard? [TTT].
I have tried extremely basic and barbaric things, such as going through every single file in my dedicated Gmod server’s files with the term “scoreboard” in them, then checking if they have the term “ping” and removing the entire line. Alas, (and to no surprise of mine), it did not work.
And so, here I am, asking a rather unorthodox question to any developer out there who can aid me who knows way more lua than I do. The most I’ve done with my server is add a few addons that need it to function, and a few sweps now and then. My lua knowledge is very poor aside from copy and pasting. Because of this I haven’t really attempted any code.
I want everything to remain the same, so the “score”, “deaths”, “karma” and all of that remain, however the entire “ping” column just simply vanishes. My reasoning for this is that I, along with everybody who uses my server find it annoying (despite of course being very useful to know one’s own ping). Also, I do have another reason, but I shall not share it. Let’s just pretend I have a perfectly great reason to just delete the ping column.
If possible, I would like to replace it with a column for everybody’s number of coins in their pointshop… So that’s a big ask that I don’t expect to be filled. I know it’s not likely to be done, but it’s not really about that - I don’t just want a new column - I want to eradicate and obliterate the ping column but leave something useful-ish in its place.
This is a bizarre question so if you don’t want to help me (or wish to ridicule me for my lack of Lua knowledge - I imagine this could potentially be a relatively simple idea compared to many others) then that’s absolutely fine - it’s not the end of the world if this doesn’t happen so this is nowhere near top priority. I could in a sense waste your time.
And yes, I know the rules say that I should show my whole code and all that, but I don’t even have any code - I don’t know where to begin. I know the rules suggest I shouldn’t ask this if I haven’t done anything, but I’m significantly stuck and I just needed a cry of help somewhere - hopefully facepunch could aid me?
Can anybody help me? Thanks in advanced to anybody who’d want to.
