In case anyone still cares, here’s the HL2RP and TRP forks of taconbanana’s TacoScript 2:
I’m gonna leave the community drama baggage at the door (and ask you to do the same, we all know what kind of reputation TnB has), suffice to say though, TnB is practically (un)dead and the gamemode includes a lot of (typically uncredited) work from the Facepunch community as well as “I’ll totally pay you when you’re done… not! Sucker!”-type arrangements between Dave and a number of “contract” developers, so I don’t see anything wrong with making it available to the general public. Chances are you’re already familiar with it, if not, tl;dr is that it’s a gamemode that was (literally) cobbled together with the more serious variety of roleplay in mind.
As far as I’m aware, both forks are free of backdoors, though you’ll have to edit the built-in isrick super-admin roster which lists the Steam IDs of a few folks you might not want to have admin privileges on your server (I know, it’s stupid - expect more of that if you actually go ahead and look into the code). They’re pretty recent, no porting required. You’ll have to tweak them a little to make them work, namely mess with the config.lua file, possibly some other things as well, shouldn’t be too difficult for anyone with a basic grasp on lua and a bit of patience though.
Yes, TS2 is horrible spaghetti code. You can tell where stuff was copy-pasted from these forums and other gamemodes (frequently with the comments removed - gg). Horsey - and some of the other TnB “coders” - were anything but professional and mature, so you’ll find functions like SetShit ( shit ). Hey, at least it’s not Clockwork.
Don’t expect any in-depth tech support from me, though if it’s something small, ask nicely in this thread and if I can answer it off the top of my head I’ll do it.
