Setting up PartyBeast is so easy a lot of people think they’ve gotten it wrong

  1. Invite PartyBeast to your server.
  2. After inviting PartyBeast you will recieve a direct message.
  3. Go to the server you invited PartyBeast to and type !pbSetup in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  4. PartyBeast will create a Category with a nested Voice Channel. Rename these to your liking – IE Category: Rainbow 6 Siege, Vocie Channel: Create Squad
  5. Change the User Limit on the created Voice Channel by right clicking, choosing Edit Channel and change the User Limit slider to the size you require. All temorary rooms will be created this size.

If you experiance issues with PartyBeast not responding to commands or similar check the permissions that are set and review the permissions section below.

Note: You don’t have to use the created Category. You can drag the created voice channel else where if you wish and delete the created channel.

Adding extra categories and channels to PartyBeast is as easy as the initial setup.

  1. Make sure you’ve been through the Initial Setup above.
  2. Go to the server you’ve completed the setup of PartyBeast on and type !pbAddCat in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  3. PartyBeast will create a new Category and nested Voice Channel. Rename these to your liking – IE Category: Apex Legends, Voice Channel: Create Team
  4. Change the User Limit on the created Voice Channel by right clicking, choosing Edit Channel and change the User Limit slider to the size you require. All temorary rooms will be created this size.

Note: You don’t have to use the created Category. You can drag the created voice channel else where if you wish and delete the created channel.

PartyBeast can change the created temporary room names based on a template of your choice

  1. Once you’ve been through the Initial Setup above.
  2. Go to the server you’ve completed the setup of PartyBeast on and type !pbRoomName in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  3. PartyBeast will reply with showing the config of the current server and asking you which room you want to change the name of.
  4. You have 3 variables to customise your room names: %USERNAME% which will add the users name into the room name, %NICKNAME% which will add the users nickname into the room name and %INC% which will increment the room names by 1 (they may not appear in order)
  5. Once you’ve chosen the room you want to change the name of and how you want the room names to display re-run !pbroomname
    Example:!pbroomname 1 %USERNAME%'s Squad would edit the first join channel in the config and all rooms would get names like “Krankie’s Room”

Note: You cannot mix %INC% and %USERNAME%

PartyBeast can change the category in which new rooms are created.
For example you might have “2 man squad” and “4 man squad” Join Here channels right at the top of your Discord navigation panel but want the temporary voice channels in a category right at the bottom of the navigation pane to keep things tidy.

  1. Firstly, make sure you have developer mode enabled in Discord so you can get the IDs of categories. Follow this guide to enable: Here
  2. Type !pbRoomParent in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  3. PartyBeast will reply  showing the config of the current server and asking you which room you want to change the parent of.
  4. If you’ve not made a category for your new temporary rooms or enabled developer mode as instructed above, do this now.
    Right click on the Category you want new temporary rooms to be created and choose Copy ID.
  5. Once you’ve chosen the Join Here channel you want to change parent for rerun !pbroomparent followed by the number of the Join Here channel and the ID you copied above.
    Example:!pbroomparent 1 551489010871304211 would edit the first Join Here channel in the config create all new temporary rooms under category with ID 551489010871304211

PartyBeast provides the functionality for users to be able to lock rooms preventing others joining.
This is especially useful for busy servers where users don’t want to be disturbed or trolled whilst playing with their friends or for offering streamers the ability to play with friends and people in their server without interruption.

  1. Firstly, the ability to lock/unlock rooms is disabled by default. Server admins can enabled this for your server by simply typing !pblock enable into any room which PartyBeast can see.
  2. Users can now type!pblock into any channel which PartyBeast can see locking their channel preventing others from joining.
  3. If a user would like more people to join them they simply type !pbunlock into any channel which PartyBeast can see opening the channel again.
  4. If you want to disable this functionality all together again type !pblock disable into any room which PartyBeast can see.

Note: PartyBeast requires the Manage Roles permissions to make this work. This should be assigned for all new installations of PartyBeast but anyone who installed before 29th December 2019 will need to set this permissions themselves.

PartyBeast provides the functionality for users to be able to rename rooms.

  1. Firstly, the ability to rename rooms is disabled by default. Server admins can enabled this for your server by simply typing !pbrename enable into any text channel which PartyBeast can see.
  2. Users can now type!pbrename NEW ROOM NAME into any channel which PartyBeast can see renaming their channel.
  3. This functionality can be disabled again by typing !pbrename disable into any test channel which PartyBeast can see.

Note: PartyBeast currently does not  have a bad words filter. Users will be able to rename rooms however they wish.

PartyBeast can show you which channels are in it’s database

  1. Once you’ve been through the Initial Setup above.
  2. Go to the server you’ve completed the setup of PartyBeast on and type !pbShowConfig in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  3. PartyBeast will reply with showing the config of the current server including categories and their associated join channels

Things gone a bit strange and you want to start PartyBeast again from fresh?

  1. Go to the server you setup PartyBeast on and type !pbDeleteConfig in a text channel PartyBeast can see.
  2. PartyBeast will delete all associated configuration for this server.
  3. Now is a good time to clean up any Categories and Voice Channels from the old config. Just right click and delete them.
  4. Rerun the Initial Setup to get PartyBeast up and running.

Note: We would only recommend running this command if you’re having difficulties or if a member of staff tells you to. We cannot retrieve config once deleted.

PartyBeast requires certain permissions to function correctly. By default these will be set when you invite the bot but heres a useful run down of it’s requirements.
In most cases PartyBeast will send you a Direct Message informing you of missing permissions and not perform the command you’ve requested but below is an explination of the required permissions, both server wide and for channels.

  1. Manage Channels: This is required for PartyBeast to be able to create categories and channels with the !pbsetup and !pbaddcat commands. It is also required for PartyBeast to function correctly when adding and deleting temporary rooms. If PartyBeast is acting weird make sure you’ve not removed this permission server wide or denied it on the channels PartyBeast created.
  2. PartyBeast required the Manage Roles permission for both the !pblock and !pbunlock commands to work. This should be assigned both server wide and to any category which PartyBeast is creating temporary rooms inside of.
  3. Read Messages: This is required for PartyBeast to be able to read messages in channels and perform commands. If PartyBeast isn’t responding to a command, first make sure PartyBeast can see the channel you’re calling the command in and secondly does PartyBeast have the Read Messages command on this channel.
  4. View Channel: As above this is required for PartyBeast to be able to see the commands you’re sending it. If PartyBeast isn’t responding to commands check it can see the channel you’re calling them from.
  5. Send Messages: This is required for PartyBeast to be able to reply to commands in the channel you called it.
  6. Move Members: This is required for PartyBeast to be able to move members into the newly created temporary channels. If members aren’t being moved into the newly created channels check that this permission hasn’t been removed for PartyBeast.
