00:45 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> can someone help me get my IRC - minetest server bridge going?  Its throwing an error, though I have followed the instructions
00:45 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> 2021-05-04 02:37:29: ERROR[Server]: IRC: Connection error: irc.ircnow.org: /home/minetest/minetest4/games/aes_game/mods/irc/hooks.lua:174: attempt to index local 'user'  (a nil value) -- Reconnecting in 600 seconds...
00:54 Cork joined #minetest
01:10 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> heh, I popped in a nil check and it connects... but now players cant hear IRC msgs and vice versa
01:12 somtalgutoo1 joined #minetest
01:16 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> actually, players can see IRC msgs, and players can message IRC users, but what players type is not transfered to IRC for some reason. Anyone can help me?
01:29 Kimapr joined #minetest
01:34 MTDiscord <VanessaE> does your channel require users  to be voiced?
01:35 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> um... I dont know how to answer that
01:35 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> Im still learning about IRC
01:36 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> @VanessaE
01:38 MTDiscord <VanessaE> is it not your own IRC channel?
01:38 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> it is, but I dont know much about IRC
01:38 MTDiscord <VanessaE> hm.  not really sure.
01:39 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> I guess mode "m" would mute participants. I will look up how not to enable it
01:40 MTDiscord <VanessaE> yep
01:40 MTDiscord <VanessaE> that'll do it all right
01:40 MTDiscord <VanessaE> but
01:40 MTDiscord <VanessaE> you want that enabled.
01:41 MTDiscord <VanessaE> you just need to set your IRC "bot" to authenticate with nickserv, and then from IRC, use chanserv to give the "bot" the +V flag so that it'll auto-voice when it joins.
01:43 MTDiscord <VanessaE> the easiest way to do that is to sign onto IRC from a separate client, give yourself a unique nick that refers to the bots, register with nickserv as if it were really for yourself, then once you have that set up and you're able to authenticate through your IRC client, change /nick to whatever nick MT will use, and use nickserv to group it to the one you auth'd with
01:43 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yeah, I made sure that that is not it by giving voice to the bot
01:44 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> so, I did that, I did register with nickserv, and I made the bot log in with that nick PW
01:44 MTDiscord <VanessaE> ok.
01:46 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> If youd be willing to help, the IRC server is : irc.ircnow.org #minigames    and the minetest server is 194.36.25.10:30000
01:49 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> @VanessaE Also, The bot sends messages to the IRC channel about players joining and leaving, but it does not send info about players' chat messages (though it does send PMs)
01:52 Hawk777 joined #minetest
02:00 MTDiscord <VanessaE> ok that's weird.
02:00 MTDiscord <VanessaE> I got nothing.
02:00 MTDiscord <VanessaE> but then again, I use freenode.
02:00 MTDiscord <VanessaE> maybe there's something about ircnow that breaks the mod?
02:01 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> I dont think so, there is already another minetest taht reports to IRC
02:01 MTDiscord <VanessaE> it used to be a thing that some networks absolutely forbade bots of any kind, and took steps to break them
02:01 MTDiscord <VanessaE> hm
02:01 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> in the same network
02:04 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> well, hmm. When I do  //lua irc.say("hi"), it goes ahead and posts it to the channel
02:04 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> so I wonder if theres a bug that was recently introduced to the mod
02:05 MTDiscord <VanessaE> I doubt it.  I update my mods often, and irc still continues to work for mew
02:06 MTDiscord <VanessaE> My servers use the master branch of the irc mod, at commit 7fbbfd6c at the moment.
02:06 MTDiscord <VanessaE> but that commit was from last July
02:07 MTDiscord <VanessaE> so that mod doesn't get much in the way of updates, but if it ain't broke, don't "fix" it.
02:07 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> well, its broke for me 😛
02:08 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> hmm... so irc.say works, what could be the issue?
02:08 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts>   minetest.register_on_chat_message(function(name, message)     if not irc.connected        or message:sub(1, 1) == "/"        or message:sub(1, 5) == "[off]"        or not irc.joined_players[name]        or (not minetest.check_player_privs(name, {shout=true})) then         return     end     local nl = message:find("\n", 1, true)     if nl then         message = message:sub(1, nl - 1)     end
02:08 MTDiscord irc.say(irc.playerMessage(name, minetest.strip_colors(message))) end)
02:08 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> so obviously this is failing
02:09 Kimapr joined #minetest
02:10 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> huh, "irc.joined_players" is {MisterA = true, test1 = true}
02:11 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> I wonder if it gets my ip
02:12 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> @VanessaE , could you do me a favor and join, and say something? to test if it is put into the channel.
02:12 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> cause if its my ip, a test user wont cut it
02:13 MTDiscord <VanessaE> momwnt.
02:14 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> no, sorry, I meant the minetest server
02:14 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> and without being singed into the IRC server
02:14 MTDiscord <VanessaE> oh ok.
02:16 MTDiscord <VanessaE> testuser-1 is me
02:17 MTDiscord <VanessaE> hm, didn't go through to IRC.
02:17 MTDiscord <VanessaE> weird.
02:17 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yeah... it says nothing in IRC, could you try signing out of IRC
02:18 MTDiscord <VanessaE> done.
02:18 MTDiscord <VanessaE> my only guess is you have some other mod installed that's intercepting in-game chat
02:18 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> oh!
02:18 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yes, I do, as a matter of fact
02:18 MTDiscord <VanessaE> like maybe some kind of channels mod that isn't compatible with irc
02:18 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> thx!
02:18 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yeah, arena_lib
02:19 MTDiscord <VanessaE> next!
02:19 MTDiscord <VanessaE> d'oh, that doesn't work from here 🙂
02:19 MTDiscord <VanessaE> <Minetestbot>  Another satisfied customer.  Next!
02:19 MTDiscord <VanessaE> 😛
02:21 Hawk777 > (19:19:31) MTDiscord: <VanessaE> <Minetestbot>  Another satisfied customer.  Next!
02:21 Hawk777 So many usernames concatenated…
02:23 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> Thank you @VanessaE
02:25 MTDiscord <VanessaE> Hawk lol
02:25 MTDiscord <VanessaE> @MisterE, Modder of Sortz you're welcome, though I did nothing 🙂
02:26 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yes, well, you helped me figure it out, one way or another. Its really really nice when ppl answer you on Discord, they dont have to, and its quite helpful
02:34 MTDiscord <VanessaE> cheers 🙂
02:41 Kimapr joined #minetest
02:42 Surfer2011_ joined #minetest
02:53 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> @VanessaE So, Its fixed. Where IRC mod used register_on_chatmessage, I replaced it with   table.insert(minetest.registered_on_chat_messages, 1, function(name, message)
02:53 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> and it works fine
02:54 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> Unfortunately I guess I have a blob now, but its a pretty stable mod as you said, so it should be okish
02:54 MTDiscord <VanessaE> I would do that alteration from arena_lib instead.  make it depend on irc, then have it insert that override
02:55 MTDiscord <VanessaE> that way you could make irc support optional, submit it to whoever made that mod.
02:55 MTDiscord <MisterE, Modder of Sorts> yeah. thats a good idea, especially since I am now kinda the maintainer for arena_lib

15:39 gehmehgeh hmm, is there a way to make the biomes larger?
15:39 gehmehgeh (the generation of biomes, that is)
15:39 gehmehgeh in the mapgen?
15:40 MTDiscord <Jonathon> you could tweak the biome registrations i believe to yield larger biomes
15:40 MTDiscord <Jonathon> not sure on that
15:41 sfan5 https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?t=24732
15:42 gehmehgeh sfan5: Danke :)
15:43 gehmehgeh Would be cool to have something like that as a regular option
15:43 gehmehgeh Seems like I first have to generate a world, edit this text file, and then start the game
15:45 Foz joined #minetest
15:46 gehmehgeh Ah
15:46 gehmehgeh there IS such a thing
15:46 gehmehgeh it's int the "all settings"
15:46 sfan5 I recommend directly editing the file in a created world though
15:55 gehmehgeh haha, apparently, ethereal has some sort of banana tree biome
15:55 gehmehgeh and I'm lucky, it's my new world's spawn
15:55 gehmehgeh feels almost like a cheat
16:10 Aris hmm, what's the simplest way to make a minetest server run on boot?
16:12 Aris (linux)
16:13 somtalgutoo1 left #minetest
16:14 sfan5 start up a screen from crontab @reboot
16:23 Aris hmm, how does that work?
