So Discord has released a new feature that allows players to join/start games from the Discord client itself, but it has to be an integrated game (if that makes sense). Link 1 does a good job highlighting what the feature aims to accomplish.
I’m not versed enough in any languages to make a surehanded comment about this. Is this something that could be implemented into Garry’s Mod? I understand there’s no Lua integration, but obviously Lua is just hotlayered onto the source engine which runs in C (or C++?), both of which are languages this new Discord feature supports.
I also don’t know enough about the feature itself besides what screenshots they provide in the links. How could this be implemented? It would be neat if it launched your game and immediately ran connect server IP in console. I also think you can display game information, so displaying the server’s title and player counter may be something that could be done.
I’m just not knowledgeable. People who are, what can be done?
