I started the new year by putting the groundwork necessary to update the LockMeister protocol.
For years now, the system relied on a simple ping/pong message to recover the key if the chain anchoring point. LSL Scripts now allow scripters to call pretty much every prim changing commands from the root prim of an object, making the need for child scripts mostly obsolete.
Unfortunately, chat commands are not part of those, to this day, we still cannot send a chat command from the root prim and have it look like it’s coming from one of the child prims and Linden Labs doesn’t appear to be interested at all by this idea. Because of this, a change in the lockmeister protocol is required so content creators can avoid using a slave script to relay LockMeister pong messages.
I am currently writing the new example scripts, the LockMeister protocol V2 will be structured in such a way that it piggyback on the original system and will be able to work with V1 and V2 objects regardless.
