ulx help

Could someone help me out with this custom ulx command ive been trying to make? It won’t appear in my ulx menu after restarts so I assume I’m overlooking something important. I referenced the preexisting ulx commands but still no luck. Thanks for your time :slight_smile:



local CATEGORY_NAME = "Playtime"


----------------------Playtime---------------------------


function ulx.playtime( calling_ply, target_plys, amount )
    for i=1, #target_plys do
        local v = target_plys[ i ]
        v:AddRankPT( amount )
    end
    DarkRP.notify( target_plys, 0, 4, calling_ply:Nick() .. " gave you "..amount.."XP" )
    ulx.fancyLogAdmin( calling_ply, .. ' gave '..target_plys..' '..amount.."XP" )
end
local playtime = ulx.command( CATEGORY_NAME, "ulx playtime", ulx.playtime, "!playtime" )
playtime:addParam{ type=ULib.cmds.PlayerArg }
playtime:addParam{ type=ULib.cmds.NumArg, min=0, max=100000, ULib.cmds.round }
playtime:defaultAccess( ULib.ACCESS_ADMIN )
playtime:help( "Give Playtime to a player." )


---------------------- Promote ---------------------------------
function ulx.promote( calling_ply, target_plys)
    for i=1, #target_plys do
        local v = target_plys[ i ]


        if ulx.getExclusive( v, calling_ply ) then
            ULib.tsayError( calling_ply, ulx.getExclusive( v, calling_ply ), true )
        elseif not v:Alive() then
            ULib.tsayError( calling_ply, v:Nick() .. " is dead!", true )
        else
        v:TimeUntilPromo() = ptime
        v:AddRankPT( ptime )
    end
    DarkRP.notify( target_plys, 0, 4, calling_ply:Nick() .. " promoted you to "..target_plys:GetJobRankPrefix() )
    ulx.fancyLogAdmin( calling_ply:Nick() .. ' promoted '..target_plys:Nick()..' to '..target_plys:GetJobRankPrefix() )
end




local promote = ulx.command( CATEGORY_NAME, "ulx promote", ulx.promote, "!promote" )
promote:addParam{ type=ULib.cmds.PlayerArg }
promote:defaultAccess( ULib.ACCESS_ADMIN )
promote:help( "Promote a player." )




Is it run client side and serverside?

I put it in the sh folder if that answers your question? Sorry I’m very new to this



 ulx.fancyLogAdmin( calling_ply, .. ' gave '..target_plys..' '..amount.."XP" )


This line starts a very long string, according to the code window.

Remove the " before XP.

Nevermind, may be wrong looking at it further.

Coders here specialize in general Lua/Garry’s Mod extended Lua.

You’d probably have better luck here

you can’t concatenate userdata values

This is nasty…


ulx.fancyLogAdmin (calling_ply, '#A gave #T %s XP', target_plys, amount)


ulx.fancyLogAdmin( calling_ply, .. ' gave '..target_plys..' '..amount.."XP" )
