    [h2]DarkRP 2.4.2![/h2]
    One of the oldest and the most popular third party gamemode! The thread has been remade because the old one was closed and a new version has been released.

    It has now arrived to version 2.4.2 after a long development time!
    The changelog is 76 lines, and most changes are huge!

    [release]
    [h2]Documentation[/h2]
    Look at the GWiki article:
    http://wiki.darkrp.com
    [h2]Download[/h2]
    Please use the latest SVN version as it is always up to date:
    https://github.com/FPtje/DarkRP

    [h2]I hate the scoreboard, how do I get rid of it?[/h2]
    Go to your own console and enter:
    Code:
    FAdmin_IsScoreboard 0
    You'll never see my scoreboard again. The downside is that you'll have to get your own scoreboard. The old DarkRP scoreboard is outdated and not supported anymore! Try This instead.

    [h2]"DarkRP is a shit gamemode, why do you still maintain it? I hate it! seriously"[/h2]
    Ok.

    Na, I just wanted to share an idea with Falco.

    It's fine if he uses it or not, was just a simple code snippet. Some people might not like it

    If you want to share an idea, why not just post it here? You'll get more feedback, and we can possibly help make it a reality. Exploits, though, should probably not be shared here.

    I just noticed that weapons dropped through rp_dropweaponondeath can be picked up without hitting the use key on them. Also, I seem to still be getting a salary while dead... Should I add these to the bug tracker?

    Are you running it through Gmod itself as a listen server, or through SRCDS as a dedicated server? I don't think it works in listen servers by default anymore.

    Wish there were more Derma skins included with DarkRP, as well as an option to pick one. The ugly default one and the one included with DarkRP I just hate.

    I'll go ahead and post what I posted in that stupid poll thread here:


    The way DarkRP is played is basically a really screwed up death match gamemode but with really stupid rules. You usually can get guns (really for that matter you pretty much need guns because of the player base), but you have to save up for it and when you get them you need to look for stupid reasons to kill someone with. Cops are sort of like Boomers from L4D, they are top priority to shoot. It's horribly obvious that everybody wants to play it like a DM gamemode. Might as well as just script a gamemode themed to gang wars and gunfights instead of a RP script.
    You should try to find some sort of way to encourage players to stop playing the game like this.

    Not sure what peoples issue's are with DarkRP.

    I get all the points brought to attention. However, what the hell does it have to do with you?

    If you don't want to play DarkRP - Then don't...
    If you hate DarkRP - Don't play it ...
    If you think DarkRP is full of idiots and you hate the gamemode theme - Then don't play it ...

    I don't go around Sims forums saying I hate the game and keep ranting at people not to play it. People play the games they want to play, what the hell does it have to do with people who don't play that game...

    Shouldn't you be happy it keeps "kids/skids/wankers/idiots/minges/morons" away from the gamemodes you like?

    I see your point, except that this forum isn't made for DarkRP, and when something is talked about over and over and over again people get tired of it and annoyed with it.

    DarkRP isn't even a sandbox game.

    It's about getting guns, then shooting people. Then getting yelled at for shooting people. The little 'RP' that's in it is you sitting around, waiting for money to magically appear in your data file. Then you buy guns with your magical money, then buy magical ammo. Then have your gun out 24/7, while walking around.


    but its still fun, ok. ok not really, but it's interesting to watch.

    DarkRP is a sandbox game. And that way of gameplay is not endorsed by me.

    This is pretty simple, but it's a little change to the gamemode that I think is helpful. It's a name generator that is part of the /name command, so players can type in "/rpname male" or "/rpname female" to get a name for that gender. I guess this is the best place to post it, since I don't think it belongs in the default version of DarkRP without being modified to add localization.

    Just replace the meta:SetRPName function in player.lua with the following.
    EDIT: Moved it to pastebin to save space: http://pastebin.com/VfqLuygW (still replaces the meta:SetRPName function in player.lua)

    What would the point of that be? Then people wouldn't be able to set their own names... That's just plain silly.

    A feature that would help DarkRP on the other hand, is being able to set your gender, as of now you just spawn with random playermodels. What if you have a male char, and spawn with a female playermodel? Would it really be so hard to add a screen that lets you choose your model as well as your RP name?

    No, you can still set your own name, just not to "male" or "female", which trigger the generator. Also, there actually is a screen to choose a citizen model already, but it's pretty counter-intuitive to get to: change to a different class, then chose the citizen class again, and you are given a choice of models.

    Both these things should really be a single feature for actual characters, like you said.

    Either DarkRP isn't installed properly, or sv_defaultgamemode isn't set properly. Do you get any errors in the server console?

    Then the server isn't sending you the LUA cache. Probably due to a download server being setup incorrectly. Contact the server hosts, if this is every server then proceed to cry and check your client/settings.
