Description

Display current standings in Team mode
Livestreaming and broadcasting is a more and more important part of eSports. Every major eSports event is broadcasted and broadcasting is also up and coming in the Trackmania scene.

The only real thing that the spectator mode of Trackmania lacks is a nice overlay that displays the current standings in Team mode. matchOverlay helps here!
Inspired by the plugin "tSplash" which was developed for ESL TV by svenstucki, matchOverlay is meant to bring you a visually appealing overlay and even more useful features for broadcasters in the future. Customization options will be added in an upcoming release, which will feature a config file.

Chat commands

These commands require at least Admin permissions.

/moverlay enable Activates the plugin & overlay.
/moverlay disable Hides the overlay for everyone.
/moverlay to <all/players/spectators> Who should see the overlay? (Default: only Spectators)
/moverlay team <1/2> <team name> Lets you set names for the teams (1 = Blue team / 2 = Red team).
/moverlay team auto <1/2> Set automatic team name detection
/moverlay mscore <Score1> <Score2> With this command you can set the overall score of the match (Will be automated in a future release).
/moverlay about Displays a bit of information about the plugin.

Installation

1. unzip the script to xaseco[2] base directory
2. edit xaseco[2]'s plugins.xml and include the following line:
Code:
<plugin>plugin.mOverlay.php</plugin>
3. restart xaseco[2]

Changes in v0.3
