[2020-07-27 06:15:05] <ljrbot> New news from bzr: [0.2.9-armagetronad-sty+ct+ap] r1144 fix suspending
[2020-07-27 08:44:56] --> SoulOfSet has joined the channel
[2020-07-27 08:50:49] <SoulOfSet> I would like some opinions on adding discord RPC to arma. (https://github.com/discord/discord-rpc). This will allow a user with the Discord client open to announce his presence within Discord itself. Basically, when mousing over a users name in Discord it would say something like "Playing RetroCycles" with a details line like "In Server Rx~ Loose Dogfight". Additionally, a "join" button could be added in Discord so that a user with the client open
[2020-07-27 08:50:50] <SoulOfSet> could click that and be automatically redirected to the server that the user is in. I think this would help with getting people in the game when friends are on, especially given the various armagetron advanced discord servers that already exist.
[2020-07-27 08:53:14] <SoulOfSet> The library is marked deprecated on github in the readme, but this is in favor of their new Discord GameSDK which is closed source and not GPL compatible. In a github issue though (https://github.com/discord/discord-rpc/issues/290) one of the devs stated that the new SDK uses the same underlying tech and current implementations shouldn't break. Its the same tech you would see if you followed their guide on rolling your own RPC client.

[2020-07-27 08:54:24] <SoulOfSet> I would like some opinion on whether or not this should be included. I've got it basically working on Windows, but I didn't want to go much farther if it would be shut down :)
[2020-07-27 14:51:05] <Z-Man> I'd like to have this functionality. Discord is quite big, and a 'is playing...' notice is one of the best advertisements we can get. Automatic word of mouth, so to speak.
[2020-07-27 14:51:58] <Z-Man> Of course, we already have this now basically for free with those using the Steam client who have Steam and Discord linked up. The join feature isn't possible that way, of course.
[2020-07-27 14:52:06] <Z-Man> <brb with more>
[2020-07-27 15:47:46] <Z-Man> The rpc library seems small enough to embed as source, and is dependency free (right?). It connects to the Discord client via pipes on the local filesystem only.
[2020-07-27 15:49:37] <Z-Man> So do I understand it correctly: Only on the client, the library is added, communicates with the already running Discord client there, which does all the heavy lifting. No modification on the server required.
[2020-07-27 15:51:19] <Z-Man> Is there overhead if no Discord client is running? Like connection attempts timing out? I would not expect that.
[2020-07-27 15:54:51] <Z-Man> The only mark against it I see is that while the library is Open Soure, it communicates exclusively with a proprietary system. There is no open source reference implementation. Legally, that is fine, on the level of using the Steam wotsitsname to upload builds there (just uploading zips in the Web UI would be possible there as a workaround).
[2020-07-27 15:55:47] <Z-Man> If the library breaks one day anyway, heck, we can always just rip it out again.
[2020-07-27 15:56:01] <Z-Man> Lucifer_arma, guru3: toughts?
[2020-07-27 16:32:29] <guru3> seems reasonable

[2020-07-27 18:35:11] <Lucifer_arma> might as well let arma users get scammed ingame on Discord
[2020-07-27 18:35:24] <Lucifer_arma> (my youngest recently got scammed on Discord by a phisher, heh)

[2020-07-27 19:19:08] <Z-Man> Lucifer_arma: I think direct chat integration is not possible, so we're safe there :) What did the scammer steal?
[2020-07-27 19:46:36] <Lucifer_arma> Z-Man: temporarily stole his steam login. Poor kid fell victim to someone using a photoshopped "certificate of authenticity" kind of thing
[2020-07-27 19:46:51] <Lucifer_arma> he got it back right away, after both me and his mom called out the scam
[2020-07-27 19:47:11] <Lucifer_arma> he's about to turn 17, and this was a few weeks back (months? I don't know anymore, it was definitely after the plague hit)
