crash from bad names (0x0A) <serv> glitch blocked team talk and whispers logged to serv app console any player trying to change to an illegal name will be renamed "Im a TSEARCH nub", gets muted, and forced into freefly any player trying to use 0x0A will be renamed "KICK ME, I HACK", gets muted, and forced into freefly sending personal messages now shows on sender screen too <serv>forceverify moved before the <serv> glitch block any player trying to use tsearch or artmoney to change there class id will be forced into freefly added a filter in message and team message to catch accidental SC pass errors (ie: ,serv>control password) added basic protection against ammo hacks, this uses a whitelist system (only allowing matching weapon and ammo combos) so the mod may not work with client mods that change the weapon/ammo hierarchy removed % symbol from all text (both message and names) to block format specifier crash (replaced with a division symbol) increased first round delay start time from 20 seconds to 30 seconds '--------------------------' 'weapon/ammo whitelist note' '--------------------------' if you think that a weapon is not working on a particular map, please send me the file BadAmmoCheck.txt. I will check the IDs to make sure weapon and ammo are valid and run an update to the whitelist '-----------------' 'Fake Players Tool' '-----------------' Due to the way lithtech's server.dll handles joiner packets, i have no way to block this annoying problem. If your server is under constant FP attack i would suggest getting a firewall. NOTE: my IP log/ban program will not work to block this tool '------------------' 'WEAPON/GRENADE BAN' '------------------' if you dont want the weapon/grenade ban feature, set all the weapon/grenade values to 0. set each weapon/grenade you want to ban to 1 (weapons/grenades can still be toggled inactive via <serv>weaponban command and <serv>grenadeban command from ingame) '-------------' 'Hardcore Evac' '-------------' well, i finally got round to it. the aim is for EVERYONE to evac. that means that every living member of the evacing race has to be in the evac zone to start the count, if one member strays out of the zone the count will stop Why i hear you ask... well, mainly to make it seem more realistic, but also to promote team play (as apposed to the leg it and hide approach) this isnt an option for the feint hearted so use it wisely! '----------' 'IP banning' '----------' there is basic code in this mod to run with my multi server demo ip logging/banning program. Contact me for details '----------' 'Known Bugs' '----------' there still seems to be a bug in the IDs in names... not sure what is causing it or why. ive added a new command that should force all the client info to refresh in the meantime (<serv>ClientRefresh) I have had reports that the mod causes lag on big/event based map (Toxic Feud). i have yet to decide wether this is mod related, however if you find this to be the case you have 2 options. 1)run an older mod version at the risk of being crashed 2)dont use big/event based maps. Phantoms: well, there seems to be a lot of discussion about this. people who didnt get phantoms are now reporting phantoms, people whos lives were ruled by phantoms are reporting much less. So.. whats the dealio?? As you may know ive changed ALL original calls to GetTIme() to an ACTUAL time based method of recording the time (QueryPerformanceCounter method for all you techs). This WILL affect the way you see your weapons working. (those familiar with the code will know a timestamp is sent with all Fire and HitFire events which IMO was the cause of most phantoms ingame) In short, all you pros who learnt to compensate for phantoms will need to retrain ;) '-----------' 'coming soon' '-----------' looking to rewrite all admin commands to remove dupicate commands (ie <serv>kick<name> and <serv>kick<id> in 1 command) '-------' 'Credits' '-------' big thanks to FuzzyKilla (aka [DMH]Keu'r-cte), weapon ban would have taken me a while longer without your tips. FKmod---> http://www.keurcte.darkmoonhunters.com/ <<---curently unavailable??? big thanks to all at AX, XF and Alpha as well for letting me develop in there servers. big thanks to [Blitz]Yippo for also allowing development in his server. thanks to all the clans that have contacted me. http://lsd.servegame.com Please report any bugs to Bunny-s Bunnyfirstname.lastname@example.org
