Programming Wiki and Feature Requests: 8/16/2020 05:02:39

Hi everyone,

I wanted to know if there is a programming wiki, which lists down APIs for Warzone. And what is needed to be done if I want to raise a feature request or work on a feature request with the team? For example, I have been thinking of two things currently - Changing chat writing format to markdown and Discord integration with Warzone (initially only with clans and forums, maybe after that we can extend to official games and then custom games as well).

TL;DR - Basically I am looking for a Contributing.md on Warzone.

Thanks in advance for your replies :)

Also, if you want to work/help with a discord bot for warzone, I recomend joining -B's work (both in CLOT and bot). It's used in almost all wz servers already.

There is no api's for chat/forums. However, we do have CLOT's.

Thanks for the API list, TBest! Sad to see the API works only for Members. Will see what I can do.

Regarding -B's work - Is there any repository where the work is currently right now? Specifically on the bot work?

For the chat/forums thing - Is it possible to work with Warzone team to work on the chat mechanics internally?

Thanks :)

For chat, you’d have to listen to when a message “arrives”. Chat isn’t meant to be full featured, use other platforms if you want more.
For forum, there’s not really a way to know when a post is sent, apart from keeping an eye on chat room. Note that chat doesn’t post off-topic thread updates.
You could make your own game features using the https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_Developers_Guide. Requires membership to create games with mods.
For -B, you could try contacting him.

Re:chat- Legolas in TSFH seems to have done some work here, maybe contact him?

Re:forums- what are you trying to do? Just read operations or writes as well?

knyte - Regarding forums, I am not sure if I understand what you mean by read and write operations. But I wanted to introduce Markdown kind of texting, so that users could have more features while writing a post and other things. This could also be trickled down to in-game chat. In the in-game chat, I was thinking of a feature for "@<someone>" as it is very helpful for diplo games, and you might even use it in big multi-day team/FFA games.

And also could you please tell me who "-B" is? I am sorry but I couldn't find his name in the compose mail window. Thanks in advance :)

Ah yes, the 2 char search, when min is 3 chars.

I think the bot will give you a invite to -B's discord when you join, if not I will send you one.

Sounds like my (beta) mod also does this for you, as it has a group chat feature. You do need M's for mods thru.
