    Good stuff Fazer... the download link is returning a 404 error and when checking the address there is a /files/files/ bit in there, deleting one of the /files bits get's it going.

    Cheers

    I'm sorry i'm stupid, for what would this be used? what kind of messages would someone send into the game on a regular basis?

    Just a few off the top of my head fella...

    A link to the servers website...
    Server rules...
    Welcome note...
    Tracks in the server rotation...

    I reckon its invaluable right now as the MOTD doesn't work yet

    K, i reckoned so much but i wasn't sure. In fact i'm still not sure how it would be usefull (for our league) as i realy would not want it to get intrusive in any way, although i do see the benefits of informing visitors without having to frigging stop a hotlap and talking to them :)

    Will d/l the plugin and see how configurable it is. As with many plugins, you usualy dont have to use all of its features and there's sometimes 1 specific feature that turns out to be a real gem :)

    This would be more useful if it could be setup to only send the message to the drivers as they connect to the server and not constantly interrupting a session. May be it could be changed to capture names of people as they connect then send a whisper message to the specific person a few seconds after they join.

    @traction Are you in the right thread? This was from 2012 before you resurrected it.

    I know, but I cant find any place to ask about this app. Maybe it isn't relevant anymore, but I used it until recently. It's a great addon for servers.

    Not arguing that, just wanted to make sure you had the right thread. I don't think I ever used this and can't comment on whether it has issues with recent versions of rF2 (seems unlikely, the dialog info has barely changed since rF1). What did you recent reinstall? Windows or rF2? Is it a windows server installation? May require some runtimes to be installed, as server versions are light on runtimes.

    The https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/welcome-message-plugin.30954/ (as mentioned above, in Aug 2012 :)) may be another option, depending what you're doing.
