I have been searching the forums, but can't seem to find any codes on it.

I want to create a new level that adds to the file browser and what not through a weapon..


function onActionServerSide(){
if (params[0] == "create"){
//Make level with name set as params[1]
}
}


//#CLIENTSIDE
function onKeyPressed(code, key){
if (key == "p"){
triggerserver("weapon", this.name, "create", "level"@[email protected]".nw");
}
}



Through my research, the only thing I could seem to find on this is the copylevel() function..

NOTE:
The NPC server has all folder rights so that shouldn't be an issue

hello!

yes you can use copylevel, the first parameter is the level file name and the second parameter is both the path (from within the 'levels/' folder) and filename:


//would create a copy of copytest.nw at 'levels/player/level_blackbeltben.nw'
copylevel("copytest.nw", "player/level_" @ temp.pl.communityname @ ".nw");


you can then use deletelevel("level_blackbeltben.nw"); to delete it

you should definitely avoid passing player.account and the level name prefix as a parameter from clientside to serverside, as a hacker could easily modify that to someone elses account, or even change the file name structure to over-write a different level or non level file. it would also be much better to use the players community name where it exists as all new account names follow the 'Graal######' format

I've messed around with it a lot but I can't get any level to create in my file browser. And when I try to warp to it, it "doesn't exist"

try creating the level file manually and then seeing if deletelevel("filename-no-path.nw"); actually deletes it, if it does then you will know for sure its not a npcserver rights issue

also are both the current and new filenames + paths configured correctly as a level in folderconfig?
