Chat commands

By default, the chat provides a few commands:

  • /slowchat (on|off) - Will enable or disable slowchat for the current session.

  • /ban (Username) (Time) (Reason) - Bans a player. Time is in days.

  • /gms-kick (Username) - Kicks a player

  • /mute (Username) - Mutes a player for 5 minutes

You can add more commands by using gms_script_set_chat_verify, like this:

//Right after gms_settings


In the script you receive the text the user just entered as argument0. You can use this text to pre-process the chat message before sending it. Finally the script should return true if the message should still be sent, or false if the message should be discarded.

For example, to check if a chat message starts with "/command", use this code:

if string_copy(argument0, 18) == "/command"
    show_message("A command!")
    return false
return true

I got an error when gms_script_set_chat_verify(scr_chat_verify) was put before gms_settings. It worked when I put it after so I think that info should be updated in the doc above.

How do I actually set up the chat? I tried before but I did it wrong and it messed up the drawing of the login screen :(
