|0003193||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Bug||public||2017-07-21 23:53||2017-10-05 00:36|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003193: Server owner does not show up in buddies list|
|Description||The owner of a server, when plaing on his own server, does not show up in buddies list. All other buddies on same server do. I had the owner change his name, added the new name in the buddies list, and he still didn't show up. I found another server with presumably a local player (ping 1) but after adding him he does show up, so I don't know what's going on.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Add "Johnny Blaze" to your buddies list, when he's playing in one of the "MOP + Chillax" servers (usually fri/sat around midnight GMT, sometimes other times too)|
Doomseeker doesn't know if player is local or not (in fact, all players in Zandronum are technically remote, because the servers can only be run in a dedicated mode).
Maybe "Johnny Blaze" is using a hidden character in their nickname? Something that is there but isn't printed on screen.
Try adding this player in "Basic" mode as "*Johnny*Blaze*".
|He shows up as "b1]Johnny Blaze". It's not stripping this extended color code quite right for some reason.|
I'm unable to reproduce. I tried names with colors, spaces, basic wildcard matching, they all show up in the buddy list as intended.
Only thing I noticed was at some point Doomseeker's buddy list for names I had added just reset. This happens sometimes when a server started from Doomseeker is open and Doomseeker is restarted.

Okay, I think I understand what's going on in here. It's an escape sequence/third-party issue. This affects extended colors from third-party "NewTextColors_260.pk3", but not regular color sequences.
Ingame, I had my name set to "b1]Wub". Just those characters, no colors. "name b1]Wub" in console. Attempting to match "b1]*" in Doomseeker finds no results. Attempting to match "*Wub" finds it. An escaped sequence "b1\]*" also finds it.
With standard colors: "name \cfWub" in console. This is displayed as "Wub" with a color in the "server details" dialog in Doomseeker, but as "Wub" in the buddies dialog. It uses a standard color ingame. "Wub" matches this in buddy list.
With extended colors from NewTextColors_260.pk3: "name \c[b1]Wub" in console. This is displayed as "Wub" with no colors in the "server details" dialog in Doomseeker, but as "b1]Wub" in buddies dialog. It uses an extended color ingame. "Wub" does not match this in buddy list, but "*Wub" does. "b1]Wub" or "b1\]Wub" does not match. "\[b1\]Wub" matches.
I also tried using a non-breaking space (" ") as a "hidden character". To my awareness, it's treated the same as a regular space character (like case-insensitive).
In other words: Because "\c[" is not a "valid" standard color sequence ("[" is not a recognized color), it will be discarded and you get this result. Special characters must also be escaped with a backwards slash ("\") or matched with a wildcard asterisk ("*").
Tested with Zandronum 3.0 and Doomseeker 1.1.
Personally, I also think Doomseeker to be working as intended. If game data (WAD) authors want to break existing conventions, that's their fault. I admit I'd like to have a color sequence standardized for custom colors, but until then I wouldn't make a hacked up patch to this issue. The correct way to handle those broken convention cases is to match "*Wub".
I've set this to acknowledged, but not confirmed. I'll leave it up to the developers (Zalewa and/or Blzut3) to decide what to do with this.
|The "\c[*]" is a valid color sequence for a long time now, so if that's what's tripping things up then this is a bug.|
