You can now issue private chat messages to any one of the players connected to the server. Begin your message with "/", followed by the name of the player (or #car_number), followed by the message. For example
/#16 Hey, John. What's up?
/smith What's up?
/j.smith What's up?
/jo.smi What's up?
/john.smith What's up?
The message will only be sent to the person you identify (or you will be given an error message if the program couldn't figure out who you meant).
There was no way to control a GPL server remotely. Remote clients can now control a GPL server (we call anyone that can control the server a "boss"). This is accomplished by using a special form for the server password. Clients that connect with the "boss" password will be able to control the server. The password format is now "[access_pwd][/[boss_pwd]][=f.last_of_boss]" (neither the brackets, nor the quotes, should be used, and anything between a pair of brackets is optional). The password is not case sensitive. The meaning of several example server passwords is given below...
"" - No password specified. Anyone may connect to the server. Only the
server itself is a boss.
"private" - All clients must enter the password (private) in order to connect
to the server. Only the server itself is a boss.
"private/secret" - All clients must enter the password (private) in order to
connect to the server. Any client that also knows the boss password (secret),
and gives the password correctly (private/secret) will also be a boss of the
server. Note that this allows there to be more than one boss for the server.
Bosses must cooperate with each other!
"private/secret=f.smith" - Same as above, but any driver whose last name is
"smith", and whose first initial is "f" will be given boss control over the
server, even if they don't enter the boss password (secret).
"/quiet" - Anyone may connect to the server without specifying a password.
Anyone that gives the boss password (/quiet) will also be a boss.
"/" - This would be interesting! Anyone can connect to the server without
specifying a password. Everyone that connects will be a boss.
There was no way to eject a player from a server. Any boss may now remove a player using the "!eject" command. The command should be entered as a chat message. The format of the command is "!eject player", where player can either be the "#" symbol along with the player's car number, or the players name. For example,
Any Boss may tell the server to stop the current race (if any), disconnect all clients, and exit by issuing the "!shutdown" command as a chat message.
