Powder Toy Multiplayer Script

    This script is exactly what it sounds like, it adds fully working multiplayer in TPT. It is MUCH different from my previous one, there is now a master server, where clients connect and can chat. You can create channels and invite friends into your channel name for private sessions.

    To get started, run '/connect' in the main chat window, you'll be connected into the lobby room. To join a more private room, type '/join [name]' . Simply give that channel name to anyone you want to play privately with and have them join.

    To Install, open the console (~ key) and enter tpt.getscript(2, "autorun.lua", 1)
    Alternate Script server link (v1.0)
    TPTMP does not work on the Android port, and you will not be able to connect to any servers even if installed

    I highly recommend also using my Script Manager, which makes loading and updating scripts WAY easier. To get the script manager, enter tpt.getscript(1, "autorun.lua", 1) into the console. Then simply open it, go to the Online tab, and download "TPTMulti". It will be downloaded and then automatically run every time you open TPT. If there is ever an update to tptmp, simply open the online tab again and there will be an "Update" button next to the script.

    You can see the entire source and follow progress on my github: https://github.com/The-Powder-Toy/tptmp

    Version 1.0.3:
    Compatibility with the snapshots and TPT 96.0
    Fix issue in jacob1's mod where the F1 and ctrl+h hotkeys were disabled

    Update user authentication process to integrate better with the website. This update is required to join the server

    Fix issue in the authentication protocol that allowed for token re-use

    Jacob1 finally accepted that it's ok to release TPTMP 1.0
    TPTMP logins are now authenticated - your username will be verified by the TPT server
    If an incorrect username is given, it will be automatically changed to the correct one
    If you don't have an account or are banned from TPT, you will be moved to the guest lobby
    The guest lobby is the room named 'guest'
    Guests are unable to join the authenticated lobby, but may join any other channels

    very fun, a lot of people from irc like me, @cracker64, @wolfy1339, @4722202468, @cj646464 were all on (not all at once, but up to 4 at once which is much better than the original)

    And it doesn't even require port forwarding :) you just download the script and the server is always on.

    lol. The UI got many last minute improvements that would be hard to live without. But an entire redo would be nice if it looks good. Keep in mind that the chatbox gets in the way often, figure out some way to fix that.

    he was talking more about the whole ui lib, i.e a set of OOP-based components, not just the location and look of buttons

    Yes, I did say 'redo', I know it was going to be a separate lib usable for anything. It just needs the features to make this specific script work well.

    Save the file as autorun.lua and put it in the same folder as TPT.

    or if you've the manager:

    Save it as (anyname).lua and put it in the scripts folder (make one if you don't have one) Click on the Lua button on the right side.


    Save as (anyname).lua and load the console.Type in dofile("(nameofscript).lua")
