A simple plugin that has the following features:

- Truncating names longer than a configurable limit
- Replacing characters in a name
- Changing a name when a player joins under an illegal name, you can configure the name to change to and the amount of digits appended to it

These features have been done by multiple people over the years, but I felt like writing this anyway. You can contact me under the nick 'iRANian' on renforums.com. To install place 'JoinNameRegulator.dll' in your FDS folder and add an entry under the [Plugins] section of SSGM.ini and at the bottom of that file add:

[JoinNameRegulator]
GuestNick = Player ; Name to use + randomly generated digits when a player joins with an illegal name
GuestAppendDigits = 6 ; How many digits to append to the GuestNick
AllowedNameLength = 18 ; The maximum allowed length for a name, anything longer than this number will be truncated to this maximum

[JoinNameRegulator_IllegalNamesTable]
; Players who join with one of these nicks will have their name changed to the values configured above
01 = Host
02 = Renegade
03 = Unnamed

[JoinNameRegulator_IllegalCharactersTable]
; This replaces an illegal character to the left of the '=' sign with the character on the right

;WhiteSpace = ! ; WhiteSpace is a special value as the character can't be loaded from the INI loading system
;[ = _

This is really awesome, I know that the old BRenbot had issues with crashing when players joined with illegal nicks. It was also a tad more difficult to ban them. This is really cool, well done. Thumbs Up

It's because a function used to get a string's length can't handle a string that's only one character long or something like that.

Could you use some code to add +4 numbers/letters to that single character then later do the removal of all 5?

It crashes when a guy with a single character nickname joins the server.

Can you release the source for this plugin regardless?
