XASECO

Description

A betting plugin to guess who wins
Plugin to serve betting function. All bet participants are fighting for the stake made by all of them. so it's all about being in front of others again. There are several manialink buttons to serve the chatcommands.
This plugin is tested only in TA mode, but should also work in Rounds.

At every new challenge server coppers are checked, if below "minservercoppers" betting will be disabled. It will also be disabled by admin command. With "betenabled" you decide if betting is enabled/disabled with xaseco startup.

If nobody started a bet during "timelimitbet" seconds, betting will be not allowed for running round. If bet started but nobody accepted in "timelimitbet" seconds, bet starter get back his/her stake. Nadeo tax will be deducted.

If bet started and accepted by players but nobody won, stake can be refund or not, depending on "paybacknowin" option. Nadeo tax will be deducted before. Bet participants must have finished the track to be able to win. There are two options ("winneronly") for winning conditions. First is Winner only can win the bet, second is bet winner needs to be in front of other bet participants.

If there is a bet winner he/she will get the stake, in this case Nadeo tax is divided: half is paid by server, half is paid by winner. This system will avoid the server losing too many coppers. The ingame message with coppers and winmessage could take a while, the time is not influenced by the plugin.

There are 4 different manialink windows:
- bet panel, serving the start panel with 5 buttons to bet different amounts. The amount can be configured via betting_config.xml.
- accept panel, serving the accept button and display the stake.
- win panel, giving only a message of who win and how much, cause chat message only is not enough at end of race.
- state panel, displays the total stake, click it to see a list of all bet participants.

Chatcommands
