Will I be able to simply overwrite the B3 server install over B2? Or will it require a clean install?

The server is currently running the Mani Mod if that makes a difference.

And is it known if this build will correct the VAC2 issue on windows box's?

Your best bet is to make a clean install, so you don't get any bits of B2 floating around. It's not the mod causing issues with VAC - that's a steam update, there's a thread about it in the Server Admins section.

Just backup your hidden cfgs and mani dirs and delete the b2a hidden dir. Install b3 and restore your configs/mani stuff.

I solved the VAC deal with Gings help last week. Some nazi admins like to keep out cheaters too. ;)

EDIT: The sticky is in tech support not the admin section. ;)

Heil M_C!

I used the post you made about Mani mod as well. I guess even arrogant bastards can be helpful every now and then. :p

Yeah, retarded kids get it wrong sometimes. Guess you don't know me as well as you thought. :rolleyes:



EDIT: Hey, Ging! Will we admins still get the server files 12-ish hours before the clients to prepare?

Refreshing Download page on Moddb - waiting for the file to finish propogating!!!!

I am so impacient sometimes!!!!

BTW - anyone in the mod team - does b3 echo the weapon used for the kill into the console logs with the players names?


This file is presently being uploaded to our mirrors, and cannot be downloaded until this process is complete.

Note. This can take up to 6hours depending on the number of queued files so please be patient and continue checking back.

Yup - logs kills with weapons correctly now.

ThunderDan

It wouldn't happen to be in the format

Player1 killed player2 with weaponname

would it?

Ging
27th April 2006, 22:07
yeah, it's just standard log format.

ThunderInnovations: Hidden B3 #1 (PS=Off) (http://hidden1.thunderinnovations.com/server.php)
ThunderInnovations: Hidden B3 #2 (PS=ON, Random Hidden) (http://hidden2.thunderinnovations.com/server.php)

Yeah - servers all setup and ready for players

edit: second server is up

Then when the client is ready for download I'll take down my B2a server and convert my Map Test Server.

I was going to convert mine right away but after the drama trying to get the server it might be a week before anyone gets the client. I won't convert, now, until I have the client, in hand, to test it. :(

2 of Smokeys are on B3, one public, one private, theres also one still running B2a and it will do so until shortly after the client is released (or slightly later if theres any problems with the B3 servers/mani) There will be another public B3 server up just as soon as i can get steam reinstalled for it, its been horribly slow today and keeps crapping out :(

For now the plan is

#1 - pigstick off, random hidden off
#2 - pigstick off, random hidden on
#3 - pigstick on, random hidden on
#4 - private/testing, possibly public if theres enough demand though
