Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Hello !

Feel free to rename the server, I've seen someone renamed it "LMAO | something" and found that way of doing friendly wink But you could name it the way you like, I put no limit on it. Note: the IP Address of the server remains constant.

What I need to tell you,

1) *you* are already admin, just like other players. I guess you know the Rcon ? It's written down in this article: http://openarena.tuxfamily.org/wiki/eng … nistration

2) Problems may happen, if server ends up unusable, I'll probably be the only person who can restart it. Because I didn't plan to give more access than RCON, and sometimes administrative tasks require more than RCON access.

3) Sometimes, as I need to restart the server, settings which were made by people are reset. Hence, the server is named "ROFL Merzbuddha" back again. It just means I restarted it.
Settings being reset is not something we wish, this is why RCON admins should find ways to set them back quickly, i.e: with scripts. There are tools/softwares to do that.

4) Last point is, I don't want to take out RCON priviledges from a person. That means I won't do "give the rcon access to a single person". RCON access should always be available for everyone on this server wink

Have fun on the server, hope you will be able to make good use of it wink

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Hello,

In case there is a problem from within the server (like: players can't join for some reason), you can still send RCON commands to it.

From main OpenArena menu, do NOT join a server, open console, then:
/rconAddress 91.121.151.39:27960
/rconPassword ...
/rcon status

Instead of "status", you can put any command, like:
/rcon set sv_dlURL ""
/rcon map oasago2

... this is what I did, with a few other changes, and it made the server work again wink

No worry with the changes, you can experiment. In return, I show you how to restore the server in a working state without my own interventions wink

See you.

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Banning works with "the !admin system"

You can use that system and its commands from within RCON, exemple:

/rcon !listbans

... should work, if you have set up the RCON the way I mentionned above.

So you could do something like:

/rcon !unban player_name

(I didn't check the commands, but for more infos you can try:  /rcon !help)

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

It depends.
There is the "g_motd" cvar.
And, some other MOTD text is read from a text file (g_motdfile). Even if you have RCON access, you can't access files on the server, so you can't really change that one.

In this last one, it says "you can administrate this server". I'd prefer it to remain that way, since it makes clear this server can be administrated by anyone. Remember: This server is free-to-use and free-to-administrate for everyone. wink

Fast weapon switch is set with "dmflags" cvar, see: http://openarena.wikia.com/wiki/Special … ns#Dmflags

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Oy,

Sorry I probably won't put specific files on the server for now.
What I could do however is to think about ways so *any* people can upload the files they want, but this needs to me to work on it and it's not easy and I don't know if I will do that.

For now, server is unpure, so these PK3s can be used by players even though the files are not on the server.

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Hi, I didn't take it off but some people seem to have fun crashing it.
Solution would be to report it to OA team so that they react and release a fix. I already did in the past but can't do it once again since I'm not welcome on their board.

+ I'm unsure you will be able to use it for OACL since if you use custom maps, they are unkown to the server so it won't be able to run them.
I know I told you "sv_pure 0" helps to load ressources locally, but it unfortunately has some limits wink

I had to restart it totally, which means it probably lost the settings you did put. Some of these settings were apparently preventing the server to work normally. I suspect this could be related to some "Long info string" problem, which is a technical detail the OA team is already aware of. For admins, it means they should take care about not publishing too much characters/information with "seta" variables, such as .Admin, .Location, and so on.

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

Some player was crashing the server on purpose.

I made some kind of fix.
I had to restart the whole server so that the fix takes effect.

Hopefully, it should prevent the server from crashing again. wink

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

xD yup, i think that it will be better to have only 3 admins in it (in my opinion) so the server will not crash again sad

but its your server you make the desicions wink

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

The crash was provoked by a regular player (without admin rights), so even if I limit the number of admins it wouldn't have changed the result wink

Re : ROFLL merzbudah! admin

I did something wrong, restarted the wrong server , so settings are set back once again ... :-/
I advise you to note/script changes you make on the server if you need some ease.
