Things that are still useful but aren't launchers, engines, or editors go here.

[WIP] DiscordRPC for GZDoom

Post by Phate6660 »

I have written a Discord rich presence client for GZDoom in Rust, and it's even cross-platform. I've personally tested it on Linux and Windows, so I know it works on them.
It should also work with MacOS, however I have absolutely no way to test it.

I'm making this because:
- I could not find a pre-existing DiscordRPC client for it
- This is something I would actively use, which would make developing it that much more fun
- I can actually visualize how I would go about it, unlike most other projects where I feel blind as a bat

Currently, it should support any game with DOOM in the title, as well as Project Brutality.

It has icons for DOOM, DOOM II, The Ultimate DOOM, and Project Brutality.
If none of those games are found, it uses the GZDoom icon.
Also, if LZDoom is used, it uses that icon instead. Regardless of what game is played.

Screenshots:





Repos (they are all the same, the only difference is that I'm more active on codeberg and sourcehut):
- Github
- Codeberg
- sourcehut

How to use:
- Download the binary for your OS. Currently, binaries are available for Linux and Windows. You can obtain them from the releases section of the Github or Codeberg repos.
- Make sure that GZDoom or LZDoom is running, if using GZDoom be sure to be inside of a level.
- Open a terminal (on Windows CMD or PowerShell should work just fine)
- On Linux:

Code: Select all

./gzdoom-dscordrpc ENGINE
- On Windows:

Code: Select all

.\gzdoom-discordrpc.exe ENGINE
- Check your status and see it in action!

ENGINE = gzdoom or lzdoom

I believe I covered everything, however I've been awake for a little too long so I may have missed something.
If there are any questions, criticisms, anything really, please let me know!
I really wanna know what you guys think.

Thank you! Let me know what you think of it when you do. Because not gonna lie, it's a little discouraging having a forum post open that nobody responds to. Like at all.
I mean, I get why. I'm sure most people here don't even use Discord. But it is a bit of a downer to see people looking at the post but not responding at all.

Sorry about that, I know how that feels. >.<

If it makes you feel any better though, I think this would actually a useful project, and deserves to have some responses in this thread. :) I'm not that heavy into Discord rich presence, myself, but even still this project definitely does not deserve to be ignored. So, it's nice to see a good idea in motion. :)

Not too sure where you got the idea that not a lot of us use Discord. :)

I think to be quite honest, this project may have just gone unnoticed. I didn't even know it was here until someone bumped it.

this is quite neat. I wonder if there's a way to extend this a bit for other projects involving GZDoom.

I'm not really sure either, especially because I'm in the server too and can see how many people are in it.

Thank you. And it does.

That's definitely a relief. The post has been up for 11 days now and I had just about come to conclusion that it was being ignored or something.
I'm sure that's not the case now, but it's really easy for the anxiety to build up.

Thanks. I probably could, I'd just need to know a little more.

I swore i responded to this (But i guess that was the introduction thread? Yeah, it was there). Did you miss that by any means?

Because it was/is a good idea, after all :)

I saw it, though I didn't respond because I didn't want to stick even more non-introduction stuff in the introduction thread.
Plus, I'm just not very good at conversating. It kinda felt like I would just be dragging on the conversation if I replied.

But somebody did respond to your idea, just not in the specific thread. :wink:

Hardly at all. The introduction thread is perfectly adequate for small talk conversation. :)

is there any way to fix this?

Code: Select all

thread 'main' panicked at 'index out of bounds: the len is 1 but the index is 1', src\main.rs:35:24

Yep, that happens when a window title that wasn't expected or is invalid is attempted to be split into a vector.
Did you make sure you were already in a level? The program expects that the window is already open so it can parse the title right away.
And it also expects the window title to be labelled as "level - game".

I'm sorry for the late response by the way, I have been very oddly busy for some reason lately.

Hi, is this project still active? I am having the following problem with GZDoom 4.5.0.

Basically, it just exits the program instead of doing anything at all.

Hey! If this project is still alive, can you make it support Zandronum? I play it pretty much all the time and I can't even launch GZDoom. I hope you can :D
