Well, now and again I do enjoy to host a powerduel server on the unpatched jka. Ive heard about hacks and such that close down servers some how. My allowdownload is 0 so they cant get my server.cfg but i keep getting jka errors after i host for a few hours or i leave and come back i have this error and there is nothing wrong with my game I have a feeling that Im being hacked by an older hack because my game isnt updated. I will no upadate my game for the community here im hoping to solve my problem. I do have a suggestion on how Im being hacked. What these "hackers" use is a rcon server hack but Ive never set a rcon password to stop this kind of thing before it even happends.Would it be possible to make a really long rcon password like 2000 characters so it would be very hard to get in to my rcon? how would i set a rcon? So Please help me try to figure out what is wrong so I make some sort of anti-hacking solution to my problem and stop these people from closing my server down. It just isnt fair I actually paid money for my game and they close my services down. Thank you listing

This is simply a product of a bad connection on the right map. Its very strange but thats what happens. It explain why your not moving right, too, lag without "connection inturupped." Bots normally get added once the player count gets down to a certian level.

Blade, you descibed what happens to me a lot. I'm pretty sure it's a hack, too, ecspecially after I was threatened by someone.

I know what you are talking about, too. EVERYTHING you descibed - bots being added like crazy and to infinity, server crashing, lots of other stuff. I have JA+ and the JA patch, so that's not your issue.

I have no clue how to fix this.

You can ban through RCON using the /rcon ban command, or something very similar to that. Most mods come with a ban command built in too, so if you're running a mod, check the readme file. xmassign.gif


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

I think I found what the hack does it just finds your recon password. The trick is just not to use a recon so make it some very long string of characters and maybe some weird symbols so they cant get in as fast and kill the server. Thats what they do they get the rcon some one then just kill the server its a hack not threw counsel comands. It seems that the patch cant fix this problem or other mods. Ill keep looking for some sort of way to fix this forever.

This issue has been fixed with the JA v1.01 patch, so updating the game should fix it. Also, there are some dedicated server patches out there somewhere, you may want to look into those too. [tipoff] About your sig bobaandy...

There's always one... :rolleyes: Better get rid of that quick. "viewed upon with disapproval" sounds pretty ominous to me. [/tipoff]
