Hi guys, I play on JK2 v1.03 server, the guy who runs it is having a problem with the servers crashing. These days theres alot of people going around with lag scripts, if you dont know what i mean, people create scripts to change their name back and forth really quick.. so other players with higher pings end up with 999 ping and get timed out. Also the guys who runs the server has been advised that these actions are crashing his servers.... also there is a command in the server cfg file which says "sv_floodProtect 1" My question is, why doesnt the flood protect stop people from flooding the server? And secondly, What can the guy who runs the servers do to auto-kick flooders? Thx in advance, hope you guys can help with this one

It is very unlikely that DC mod will work with version 1.03.

Flood protect protects against some types of scripted flooding, but not all.

You can't auto-kick flooders. He should ban all that he identifies.

No hes not running any mods. its just v1.03. Should he run some kinda mod? Or is banning the people who do it the best option? Ive tried to find out IP's of people who do this when im in the server, but i cant get it to work, what command do i need to do to find their IP's

You need to have the rcon password and log on in order to use rcon. But you don't have to be on the server to use rcon (it means Remote CONtrol), you can monitor and control the server remotely.

Learn about rcon here http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=128269
