[tool] Name Maker

Post by Lunya »

Hey @adminless!

Few months ago I made a tool to make my ingame name.
I guess some players could be pleased, so I pumped it a little to give it to the Classico community.

The 'download' button generate and save an autoexec.cfg file to place in the baseq Q3A folder.

It's a static web page so if you're interested you may store it in a corner of you web server.
In case you are, just tell me how to send you the source!

I just tried the application, everything seems to work well for the creation of the nickname

on the other hand I have a problem Quake III Arena is not installed on my PC, I only installed the 64-bit Windows client: ioquake3.x86_64.exe proposed on the forum at this location: C:\fpsclasico-client-community-edition\baseq3 and therefore when I press download on the Name Maker application nothing happens because the baseq Q3A folder does not exist and therefore the autoexec.cfg file does not download ...

I do not know if I am the only one in this case, maybe you should consider the alternative that the autoexec.cfg file is downloaded in the default download folder of windows in the case where it does not find baseq Q3A folder ...

otherwise there remains the option of creating the folder in C:\Program Files\Quake3\Baseq3 but which can ask for administrator rights for the creation of the folder and its possible deletion afterwards ...

Indeed, the forum security policy forbid the autoexec.cfg file,
"Content Security Policy: The page settings prevented a resource from loading at data:text/plain;charset=utf-8,name%20%22… (« frame-src »).".
It depends on the forum itself, maybe Adminless have an idea?
I'll check if I can provide the autoexec.cfg file through another way.

@lunya yes that error is related with the web server site security policy not with your code. try now and let me know if it still throws the error.

It works perfectly for me, you rock!

Could @Imprecise confirm it works for him too?

The program that Lunya is referring to is called Name Maker Studio G2 and is as old as Q3A itself. Back in the days it had some popularity in the 1.16 community. My old "facething" nick that I was playing under for a while was made with it. Used it even on hiszy servers.

@Lunya - is this your namemaker? Did you write it yourself?

@both no, she wrote the code you see at the namemaker forum page herself I can tell. that's her tool which is obviously different to the well known standalone tool you're referring too.

PS: glad to see some good old fashioned HiszY servers screens and players still around :)

No, you're referring to a desktop software. I did my personal web app, not trusting the executables I found online. And I though it would be easier and quicker to create and to use a simple web page than a desktop software.

Yep, I did the full code. JS, html and css.
Coding is my job ;)

@Lunya @Adminless - Issue resolved -

Downloading the autoexec.cfg file works perfectly, a dialog box opens to suggest "open with" or "download" the autoexec.cfg file, which is automatically downloaded in the default Windows download folder (for info I'm using the latest version of Firefox) then a new dialog box opens and says: Place this file in your "baseq" Quake 3 Arena installation folder

Thanks Adminless for the fix and again thanks Lunya for the nice work and sharing with fps.clasico

Really good job @Lunya! Thanx for the cool code and the conrtib.
You should put it on github (or any other main public place) for it's a really nice tool which I'm sure would be appreciated by lot of still-playing-q3 folks ;)
