    The HOT HOT OFFICIAL servers info thread

    Are you running a server? Do you need to let people know what's on the jiggy-jaw with your server? Running new maps? Install a new something or other? Spill coffee on the bastard so it'll be offline while you clean the sugar crystals off the CPU?

    this is where you can do it. Please direct ANY AND ALL pertinent Server info to this thread, for central reading purposes. This includes (but is not limited to):
    • Bans being placed (and why, for other admins who might care)
    • Bans being lifted
    • Additions to the map rotation
    • subtractions from the map rotations
    • important software/hardware changes to server
    • important connection info changes to the server (changing max players, changing IP, etc)
    • expected/unexpected downtime and subsequent uptime


    ONLY SERVER ADMINS MAY POST IN THIS THREAD. ANY OTHER POSTS WILL BE DELETED. PERIOD.

    these so far include:

    Aquatone-Patch,
    Thieve's Den,
    ToB-Sword Arena,
    Archery,
    King of the Desert,
    Bafford,
    Ancient Ruins.

    I'll keep updating this post as I add more maps

    MOG'S THIEVERY SERVER
    Same guidelines apply on Mog's

    Please note that Mog's is not 24/7, and is normally up 'out of working hours' UK time:
    19:00 to 08:00 GMT, and all weekend

    For the time being, I only have the 'official' 1.2 maps in my rotation, so anybody can join and play.
    As and when downloading is enabled, I may change this.

    Mog's is a UK based server!! (There appears to be some doubt about this!)

    Same for the RLF server.
    Persons banned on the Crackaz Server will be banned on the RLF server as well, no questions asked. Granted, I've yet to ban an IP but that will be tidy'd up before this week is out.

    Crackaz (CTG) Server Update

    The current server's line is getting switched over this week and it will be in and out due to this. The switch over should be completed this week.

    Our new server will be up this weekend for testing. We would appreciate it if you guys could use this new server this weekend so we can make sure it's up to par.

    Once we have tested that server it's getting shipped off to Lincoln, Nebraska to be put on a OC3 line which will be it's permanent home. At that time the current CTG TUT server will be taken off line.

    Thanks in advance for helping us out in testing the new server.

    CTG Server Update

    As some of you may have noticed we have the new server up for testing.

    There is a problem with it right now when it switches maps. It seems to be taking an awful long time between map changes. We beleive we know what is causing this problem and will try and fix it by Sunday.

    This server is still on the T-1 line. Once we get the server issues sorted out we'll move it to the OC-3. There have been issues with disconnects. I think this is something to do with the T-1 line.

    Thank you for playing on the CTG server and putting up with the problems we're having.

    Cheater Exposed

    Re-posted in this thread at Thwark's request:

    For several weeks now, a number of the Thievery server admins and several respected members of the community have been observing a player quite closely, on the suspicion that that player might be cheating. We have reached the conclusion that he is.

    That player is Frantic.

    We have spent hours spectating him and further hours investigating various Unreal Engine cheats. The kind of cheat that Frantic uses is called a "radar hack". This allows the player to see the direction, and sometimes distance, health, armor status, and ammo of all players in the game, and differentiates between friend and foe. It allows him to find even the best hidden thief, and to avoid guards with ease. After these hours upon hours of watching him play, it is evident that this is what he's using. He has used this cheat on nearly every member of the community, including members of his own guild.

    We will not disclose the exact methods used to discover this cheat.

    What makes this a true tragedy is that Frantic is actually a very skilled player in his own right. It's a shame that he has felt the need to augment his already formidable abilities in this unfair manner.

    Participating in this investigation, and willing to state publicly that they are certain that Frantic is cheating are the following people.

    Grank
    LaughingRat
    BrokenArts
    Cythe
    LeatherMan
    Mad Gerbil
    mOdEtWo

    Agreeing to accept the judgment of these people as accurate, the results as factual, and to ban Frantic from their servers are the following admins:

    DarkProject
    Mogwort

    A copy of this post has been sent to all the other server admins I have email addresses for. We urge them to protect their reputations for running a clean, fair server, and permanently ban Frantic from their servers as well. His IP is available to server admins upon request.

    Nemesis was already banned from Crackaz for those reasons. I just hadn't posted it here.

    ok I am setting up a occasional server

    all the things the other server admins have said apply
    no cheats
    no bug exoloits etc
    so far noone is banned from my server,but that will
    probably change : sigh

    one other thing I'm gonna try
    I would like to keep down all this DM thieving
    If you want to DM go play Unreal Tournament
    or Quake
    to this end I have instituted a 2 KO limit on my server
    that is each thief
    because i have noticed its usually one thief who goes BJ
    happy and KO's all the Guards winning by killing all guards
    instead of by objectives
    This is no fun for the new people or veterans who get knocked out of the game early
    then thieves run amok in the level with no resistance

    if You choose to exceed this limit u will be kicked offf the server
    not banned but kicked
    I encourage all players to Kick anyone exceeding this limit

    You may want to look UP a couple posts in this thread and reconsider that.

    A person by the name of shadowhunter has been banned from the Legend server for adding the Legend tag to his name. When asked several times to change his name, he did not comply. I then asked for a final time and he changed his name to BiohazardBastard.

    Banned from the Legend server.

    I will have Nemesis look into the server logs as to whether shadowhunter is the same as Shadowe.
