Create a custom description tag

Post by 3lancer » 2004-11-17 15:28

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know how to create a custom tag that always will show in description?

e.g. something like this if ya look in the userlist.....

[BBB]Bear <mlDC 2.1> <++ V:0.4033,M:A..........

what does the code look like for the dDC-tag above and where do I put it...I've tried to look for it but can't find it :-/

regards. 3lancer

Why do you want a custom tag?

I'm making an OP client. So far I've been able to implement some really nice op functions without any problems...however that tag is making my hair grey. Perhaps I'm just over-worked :?

why do I want it? well looks nice, everyone will be able to identify the client without the need of client detection mods.

And just to be clear, I want the tag to show in description...I don't wish to alter the dc++ tag ;-)

You could always pre-pend it to the tag in the tag-generation code, I suppose.

if he knew were that code was located he could do anything. I think the problem is that he can't find it. ;))
Everyone is supposed to download from the hubs, - I don´t know why, but I never do anymore.

Thanks everyone I got it now :D

And Naga, well I don't agree with you. It generally takes quite some time to grasp another persons code and at the begining it's very easy to get lost.
