Timestamps in AutoChat

Apr 1, 2011 at 1:56 PM

Hello,

Would like to know if it would be possible to add an option to put timestamps in AutoChat outputs ?

Thx

Time stamps of the game-time?

But why would you want that?

I like the idea, but what exactly did you want?

Timestamp of game time

Timestamp of current system time

Timestamp in your configured sentences, or as a whole line?

Thanks

Game time would be better, i dont know if you can get it. System time would fit as well.

Or, for example %t would mean the system time, and %gt the game time ;)

 

Basic use would be to sync neutral mob respawn within the team. We are already doing this manually but an option with Autochat would be great :

"Our RED down - kill time at %gt"

I like the idea of telling when the buff dies, because most of the time when I want a buff, it's gone.

And when it's gone you don't really pay attention when it's available again.

 

Maybe you can send the respawn time too? (of the buffs)

The problem with auto chat messages is that it could cause huge problems when the user is casting spells at the same time.

So I would rather leave it triggered when the user types something. I like the parameters idea.

So something like: (Red down at XX, spawns at XX)

Yeah, leave it triggered plz.

One question, in "(Red down at XX, spawns at XX)", how do you expect the respawn time will be available ? Doing an arithmetic addition with the parameter ???

Yep, the buffs respawn after an amount of time, I shall look for that time and post it :)

Auto-chat-messages is a no-go because it's very annoring & the minions have to be slained too (for the buff to respawn).

Yep I know masterjoost.

Problem is I dont think its a good thing AutoChat do that automatically.

I would prefer having the possibility in the parameter to perform an addition, but to be honest, having the timestamp is already sufficient and more generic.

I would have a single macro for baron, drake, blue, red instead of 4 separate bindings :)

I agree, because it's quite handy :D

I found this page for the respawn timers:

http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=1190342

so:

Summoner's Rift
Golems, Wraiths, Wolves - 1:40
Lizard Buff - 5:00
Golem Buff - 5:00
Dragon - 6:00
Baron - 7:00

Twisted Treeline
Golems, Lizards, Wolves - 1:15
Wraith Buff, Wolf Buff - 3:00
Lizard Buff - 4:00
Dragon Buff - 5:00
