Record Mod
Posted Image

Attention
Be prepared for the Recording Mod! First of all, I try to resolve any missunderstandings. This mod is not able to record and save a video of you playing minecraft, for something like this you have to use Fraps or a similar program! But wait, it is a cool feature to play with, trust me.

News
Spoiler:

So what actually does this mod?
This mod offers the oppertunity to tell your friends on a server easily that you are currently recording or streaming, what you do to have no missunderstandings.

Why would you need this?
This mod is a neat utility for lets player or similar, because it adds the posiiblity to tell other players on a server that you are recording or streaming. Often they do not want to tell something that does not belong into the public ;)

If you want to know why I did this, here you go:
Spoiler:

Download
(have you read the Attention part? this might not be what you think!)
You need Forge to be installed. Forge from version 6 upwards should work. If not please tell me.
After the download you have to put it in your mods folder. For a forge installation guide please google yourself.
Universal (1.4.4/1.4.5)

I've always liked to know how things worked ever since I was little. So, how do the other clients on the server know that one person is recording? Does it send a packet to the server or in chat or something? Database? Does it send bat minions to the other players on the server with a written book saying so? I WANT TO KNOW! TELL ME NOW!!!! HAHAHA

By the way, ER MER GERD FIRST UPVOTE! FIRST! FIRST!!!!!!!!

I am working on this for about a half and a week, because I actually forgot to make this mod. So I started searching and found very helpful information on the ForgeWiki. I recommend you to look there, because I learned how to do packets in forge on the tutorials page. But to answer your question yes, I am using packets. I send a packet to the server which includes the name. On the server, I am waiting for these packets to send it to the other clients and to store internally in a vector as the clients do. So in my vector is filled with everyone who is recording, so i only have to check, if there are any players in the vector.
I hope you got an overview on how my mod works and can can develop your own mods.

This mod does not record a file. It tells other players on a server that you are recording.

Not at all, go ahead and make it. But I want to make a change to the way how you see who records/streams in the next few days.
So I hope you can wait that long.

Use recording software. Maybe you could set your video capture app to use the same key as this mod? Or does that conflict?

It was intended to do so. Normally it should work, but I didn't had the possibility to test it yet. If you can do so, try it and if it does not work I'll try to fix it.

This is very very cool. But a slight suggestion is to be able to hide the little recording thing, it doesn't exactly beatify your minecraft screen when recording, no offense.

As you might not have seen, there is the ability to toggle its visibility when pressing O. Even if I did not have that function I would not be angry, but make me try to add this.
