View Full Version : Vac

I can't seem to be able to turn on VAC on my server. I've got -secure in the command line, and I've got sv_secure 1 in the server.cfg, neither seems to work. What am I doing wrong?

Since about the March 8th/9th updates VAC and log pulling on hl2mp + mod servers got a bit screwed up, i think log pulling works again now, it was possibly even a HLSW problem all along anyway, but VAC still isn't happy. You can rollback your dedicated server to get it working, theres a thread or two somewhere on this forum about it even, you'll find it if you search, one is possibly stickied in technical support forum iirc.

Is it worth the hassle? Currently running without VAC, seems like it's somthing they ought to fix sooner or later no?

The number of cheaters seems to jump on servers without VAC.

They seem to think that non-VAC means 'The server admins would just love it if I came in and cheated'. There were a couple of demos posted a while back where a speedhacker was actually saying something about 'there's no VAC, you can't get me banned'.

Well, from steam, no - but nonetheless that guy is not playing on a fair number of servers. ;)
