URGGH!!! its something to do with ME adminning the server.

"404 Not Found<302><STEAM_0:0:2221260><IRIS>" disconnected (reason "404 Not Found timed out")
23:38:10 L 06/13/2006 - 20:38:00: "{9thInf}Rct.Xenocide*B*<318><STEAM_0:1:3016156><IRIS>" disconnected (reason "{9thInf}Rct.Xenocide*B* timed out")
23:38:14 L 06/13/2006 - 20:38:04: "cubedgame<319><STEAM_0:1:3548638><IRIS>" disconnected (reason "Disconnect by user.")
23:38:18 L 06/13/2006 - 20:38:08: "ET<300><STEAM_0:1:5317738><IRIS>" disconnected (reason "Disconnect by user.")
23:38:24 L 06/13/2006 - 20:38:14: "b.w<308><STEAM_0:1:4610759><Hidden>" disconnected (reason "b.w timed out")

Okay so I log in HLSW, connect and get in game right. Ask them if its gone down. They say it hasnt and they have been there for like 5 maps. ONE round of playing and almost EVERYONE times out, the other users have the time to scream holy lag of hell before they disconnect or time out. My only conclusion that either Rcon is doing it, or HLSW , or being logged in HLSW and rcon at the same time or something. Gawd! this is horrible. I purchased a server and cant do jack with it :/

edit: okay after talking with the original poster, he believes that its caused by a client (or 2 at the same time) crashing and causing the server to freak out. I realize that I am crashing, while everyone else just gets real bad lag and times out. I crash to desk top with no error. I may be reverting to B3 im sad to say :( . Im not angry or anything, just frustrated

This has happend on my server before and i dont think it has to do with HLSW for the fact that HLSW doesnt Timeout or anything when the drops happen....

But as for the client side thing that sounds like you might have hit the nail on the head because i noticed that once one person drops its like a chain reaction.....

yeahI know its an older post, but I'd really like to see Ging or someone give their thoughts on this. I get the feeling they know its happening but dont want to comment on it for whatever reason.

I get the feeling that we've commented on it elsewhere and as such, didn't feel the need to repeat ourselves...

Um really? Cause I looked all over for this, and didnt find anything. Obviously I was a little pissed, but if I had seen anything, I wouldnt have said anything.

I think Ging may be pointing you at threads like this one:


Try my suggested workaround there, let me know if it helps.

Right, host hasnt given me permission with the rcon password even ( somehow its restricted), so I sent in a ticket ot change it, i'll try to let you know if its still happening. thanks man.
