HostingBuddy and TUS got connected!
« on: August 24, 2015, 03:42 PM »
Thanks to CyberShadow, as the title says, HostingBuddy and TUS are now connected.

Now it is possible to load both TUS schemes and TUS maps into HostingBuddy. With that possibility, you can load TUS official schemes or load BIT maps into HostingBuddy. Moreover you can now tell hosting buddy to load a specific map author or even load a map only from a map pack.

If you found bug or you have suggestions to develop more useful commands you can post them on this thread.

Load a TUS official scheme
After hosting your game, in the lobby type:

!tusscheme

That command will automatically load the TUS official scheme for your game.

Load scheme by its ID

!tusscheme 1234

How to load maps
While in the lobby, to pick a random map from TUS:

!tusmap

Load a random map by an author

!tusmap author:husk

There are shorthands to this which also works: (both of the below works as well)

!tusmap a:husk
!tusmap husk

If there's space in the name of the author, you should put it into double quotes:

!tusmap a:"Big Billy"

Load a random map from a mappack
This feature allows you to pick from a custom mappack. This is good when you have a collection of maps with your standards and you can tell hosting buddy to pick only from that collection. This feature also works as a "map picker" feature.

!tusmap pack:123

shorthand:  !tusmap p:123

Set a map type
There are 3 different map types. PNG (color maps), BIT and LEV. You can set this option to force HostingBuddy to only pick a specific type of map:

!tusmap type:bit

shorthand:  !tusmap t:bit

Set the map size
You can set whether the map should be big or not.

!tusmap size:big

shorthand:  !tusmap s:big


Similar explanation can also be found in the HostingBuddy lobby with !tushelp.
Due to massive misunderstandings: MonkeyIsland refers to an island not a monkey. I would be a monkey, if my name was IslandMonkey meaning a monkey who is or lives on an island. MonkeyIsland is an island which is related to monkeys. There's been a legend around saying MonkeyIsland is a game. So please, think of me as an island or a game.

Great job. WMDB's monopoly has been seriously shaken xD

This command will work too: "!tusmap a:husk t:png s:big" ?

Also a shortcuts like this - s:b (size:big) would be useful.

daaamn, 16 year after premiere and this game gets better and better constantly  :-* :-* :-*, so shame we get older and so lack of time to play it, where u people get the inspiration and power to do such a great job with it? It makes me feel like such a meaningless piece of dust flying around, but it makes me so proud that i can still be part of it even when i almost dont play at all

Hi! I don't really use hostingbuddy, so i don't know if this feature is already added or not, but I think that it would be cool to load at least tus league schemes and maybe the onl scheme by name and not by number. I mean something like this: if somebody hosts a shopper for examle and types the command !tusscheme then the tus shopper scheme would be loaded. What do you think about this?
Just wanted to mention where the idea came from noobs..

Some of the .bit TTRR maps I tested have those borders by default:



Is there a way to fix this? :-[

Thanks!

You can remove border with HostingBuddy after loading the map or you can PM me those map IDs and I'll remove borders from them.
