How to show who is talking with demos

    As someone who doesn't have a computer that can handle 3rd party recording software, this was extremely helpful. I can now catch micspammers and loopholers much easier than before, and it still takes nothing to run

    First, go here

    As you can see, I have a df.lua file saved at the bottom.

    Open up a notepad and paste the following:

    if not engine.IsPlayingDemo() then return end
    local function CreateVoiceVGUI()
        g_VoicePanelList = vgui.Create( "DPanel" )
        g_VoicePanelList:SetPos(25, 25)
        g_VoicePanelList:SetSize(200, ScrH() - 200)
        MutedState = vgui.Create("DLabel")
        MutedState:SetPos(ScrW() - 200, ScrH() - 50)
        MutedState:SetSize(200, 50)
        MutedState:SetTextColor(Color(240, 240, 240, 250))
        print("Created voice panel.")
    function VOICE.Tick() end -- fix console error spam (this function previously handled voice battery; doesn't matter in demos).
    Save it under All Files and title it df.lua

    To prevent the Script Errors at the top left, go to the following:
    Open 'errors' in Notepad
    All I did was change
    local text = "Something is creating script errors"
    local text = "i"
    This will tell you that there are errors, but won't get in the way of a person using their mic

    Next, open GMod and type "sv_allowcslua 1" in console
    Then bind a key to "lua_openscript_cl df.lua" (e.g. 'bind KP_Home "lua_openscript_cl df.lua"')

    Now, when you run a demo, press the key you bound and mics should appear

    Huge thanks to @Verified and @Agent A for these tips

    Step 3 shouldn't be needed. If you're getting script errors paste the error here and I'll modify the script to account for them.

    EDIT: Also that change will be lost when gmod updates.

    Easy enough fix for me, but how would you recommend getting rid of em?

    Why are you guys making the lua file in the root folder then manually executing it, just put it in lua autorun? It shouldn't affect gameplay on SGM as allowcslua would be disabled.

    Lua files in autorun don't get executed in demos. (At least in my brief testing)

    Step 1) Download demovoicefix.lua (credit to Yatty, not me)
    step 2) Navigate to your garry's mod directory
    1) Right click Garry's Mod in steam and click properties
    2) Click Local Files in the menu that pops up
    3) Click browse local files
    Step 3) go to garrysmod/lua
    Step 4) put demovoicefix.lua in there
    Step 5) In Garry's Mod open your console and type
    sv_allowcslua 1
    Step 6) Load the demo. (This can be done before step 5 but is easier if done after allowing cs lua)
    Step 7) Open your console and type
    lua_openscript_cl demovoicefix.lua
    Then in the future, you can absolutely make this a bind.
    You will now be able to see who is speaking - it will appear in the bottom right.
    bind <KEY> "sv_allowcslua 1;lua_openscript_cl demovoicefix.lua"
    This script moves the voice boxes from the top left (where demos get plagued with script errors) to the bottom right.

    does this also work in deathrun?

    After reading the lua, this would probably work in any gamemode.

    Alright, thanks. I remember some error due to mic batteries or something, can't remember what script it was with though.

    This should work in all Garry's Mod gamemodes. The script just see's that some nigga is talking, then goes "ok I put that nigga the bottom right". It is independent of any custom huds or anything like that on any Garry's Mod server.
