Server status and bugs

Postby Ξv!L_tony » Sat Nov 26, 2016 9:01 am

Heyho,

many people complained already that the old FR servers aren't working so good, so let's try to list what needs to be improved. Let's keep it short and simple to keep an overview.

- The servers are very laggy, would be good to know what can be done to fix that
- Stats aren't working
- Server isn't connected to sourceban
- Often the tank and horde don't spawn in finals
- Sometimes admin menu turns off (I can explain it more detailed if needed)
- Sometimes you see only the weapons of players, but not the bot
- Player panel (the one you open with tab) sometimes doesn't open
I am bad and that is good, I will never be good and that's not bad.

Which I can remember:
- Server is not listed in the offical server list. (Not sure if this is correct)
- NoSteam players can not play. (Not sure if this is correct)
- Tank is much pinched
... the rest you already said
I have no quirks, these are special effects!

for stats/sb probably due to database cfg, anyway for lags nothing can be done, technicaly its internet related not server itself, i dont plan to change of transit provider, cost a lot more ....

About how much more are we talking?

I mean, could donations be of help? Danny mentioned that he would like to test the UK provider for an FR18, if that would be cheaper than keep your severs up, we should consider that.

impossible for only game servers, anyway i dont think uk who will be shared will handle fr18 corectly, the only issue with the actual fr18 iis latency for some ppl, technicaly it should not be that bad, i think that maybe some cfg of the l4d process can be changed, i dont have time to look into it right now and i would need ppl for test

Danny already tried to figure out what's the problem:

I'm also sure that the plugins on the FR18 are a mess, but since I don't know how those things work I can't judge or help. If Danny got time it might be good to tidy up a little bit. There are plugins that aren't needed (radio for example) and plugins that fail from time to time. So maybe this can already help to lower the ping issue ... afterll it mostly happens during hordes when there are more than x ppl.

It still seems like stats aren't working correctly.

In here it says the last time I played was in September: http://stats.l4d-hero.nl/FR18/playerlist.php

Heyho,

another point from the speaky-friday: regular server restarts ...

Since the FR servers are back, many of us suffer from lags. For me the FR servers are close to be unplayable and it's not enjoyable when the server is full (the more ppl, the more I lag). This problem is based on the server provider and we can't do a lot about it it seems. Hank already knows about the problem, but Hank is also a busy guy and I'm sure he is trying his best to solve the problem.

Senior admins got a command to restart the game on the server, that might be helpful from time to time, but it's not a complete server restart. Only our 2 root admins can do that because they are the only ones with direct server access. If this is helpful is another question. Sure our senior admins can restart the game and it might be better for some time, but if this should happen like every sunday at 1 am, Danny or Hank need to take care about. I will put it on the to do list for Danny and see what will happen ;)

The !settings command seems not to work properly with some people, Mark told me he cant mute players or cant close the window. He reinstalled the game and tryed again, but stil doesnt work. He has a nosteam version. Beside Mark also Majestic and Igor have the same probleem.
