I'm sorry to be a pest but I can't find what i'm looking for could somebody please convert this to lua 5


-- LEECHBLOCKER 02 -- for PtokaX TD4


-- Created by SAMPLERman - HUB:

-- 5/August/2003

-- Based on an idea by OpiumVolage and RabidWombat

-- And thanks AGAIN to RabidWombat for new ideas

-- This LUA script prevents users that are not registered in the hub (=aliens)

-- from connecting to other users (for downloading).

-- New users (=aliens) can chat, upload and be searched. They just can't download.

-- This way your previously private hub can again be public.

-- Optionally, the script also blocks searches (from nonregged users).

-- However, it is recommended that you allow everyone to search your hub, so that

-- new users know what they are missing.

-- NEW in version 02:

-- To allow an alien to download for 1 session, OPs can type this command:

-- !letleech

-- To do for next version:

-- Optionally, aliens can download off of other aliens

-- There are 2 kinds of hubs:

-- 1) Open hubs for sharing anything

-- 2) Small hubs that concentrate on a special interest (e.g. classical sheet music)

-- This script is NOT recommended for hub kind #1, where it is enough to

-- control how many GB users are sharing.

-- Because in hub type #1 there is no point in registering users, this script

-- should be adapted to make shared amount the criteria for letting download.

-- Even better, for hub type #1 users who share little should be allowed to download

-- from other people who share little.

-- Freedom is a strength of the Direct Connect community; please do not cut into

-- people's freedom except when absolutely necessary.

-- This script is only for closed hubs with a very specific subject.




-- Scripting.txt (comes with PtokaX)

-- <>

-- LUA reference manual 4.0.pdf


-- GLOBAL VARIABLES -- make changes here only


smDebugging = "0" -- Default is "0" (silent mode). "1" sends msgs to OPs

smBlockSearches = "0" -- Default is "0" (do not block searches)

smBlockSearchExceptions = { "scores", "sheet music" }

MsgToAliens = "\t\t\t*** warning***\r\n\t"..

"You are unable to download in this hub,only registered users can download.\r\n\t"..

"You may still search (see what your missing) and chat\r\n\t"..

"\tIn order to become a registered user:\r\n\t"..

"1) Ask an OP to be registered (provide a password), he/she will check your share.\r\n\t"..

"2) The Op will download 1 file from you (mp3) your IP will be recorded.\r\n\t"..

"3) Depending if everything checks out you will be accepted ,If not you will be informed why.\r\n\t"..

It has already been down, search for "download blocker"  or anti leech.
Ignorance is Bliss.


Me again :) so far I think i've tried every version of a "leechblocker" I could find,still can't find the one  I want. Is there a page where creators/scripts are listed like the old lua 4 was cause if it is I'd appreciate this link.If not can somebody please post a link here where I can find the above script converted to lua 5

Go to the script database, otherwise go to //
Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.


I have 2 d/l blockers but neither does what i'm looking for :( I believe one doesn't work and the other completly blocks everbody from downloading regged included could somebody please paste a link here where i can find the above script i'm at my wits end and considering going back to lua 4 scripts just so i can use this
