1.0004 - More info about the MP? Remote Server Control ect?

Is there more info about the remote server control on the new patch?

What I notice was the server runs allot more smoother, but besides server commands ect nothing changed as what I noticed.

1.0004 standalone dedicated server? where? how? wtf? my impression of this was an entirely seperate application that can be fired up easily without having to go through all the rigamarole as it is now.
It also appears there is not a new mp map, though somebody quoted
the 'Grand Lunar' of GSC as stating such.

Hi all guys,
during the updating of STALKERHispano Server I"ve found a few changes, maybe someone can explain them better than me.

The first change is the lot of new DLLs in bin, and dedicated, folders, probably the responsibles of the improvements of STALKER Connections.
The other one is the new folder created wich name"s "mods". In addition, there"s a new entry on fslgame.ltx, regarding about this new folder. Now the question is, how this new folder works? Does Users need anything in order to download Mods and Maps directly from servers? Wich is the mission of "mods" folder?

For the last question, in my opinion it can regards about bot Client and Server sides. In one hand, there can be here in order to place MODs of the server that people can download, or in the other hand, it can be a setting for Clients, in order to download server MODs at a specific place.

Is all I"ve to say for now, hope someone can go through this. In any case, how tu use the rcon tools?

Have all fun,
Dade

Is there no way to find all the commands on a server/game?
Like type "cvarlist" or some thing like that?

I think it's odd that they have not released any info about this. :

Just let"s discover it like true Stalkers!

One of the collaborators have released an optimization guide for STALKER, and there were a few interesting commands for our case:
- bind_list - List of possible binds
- help - Show all the commands.
- list_actions - List of actions.

I can"t test them cuz I"ve accidentally f...d our server, and I"m reinstalling it. I think the help command would be the one of our interest. To watch the command list, you will have to write help in the console of the game, and then the command flush, this will save the commands in the log file. Then close the console and go to your logs folder, and find the txt file xray_stalker, if there are any other files dont use them, there are just log files for crashes.

Hope that this would help, have all fun,
Dade

Ok guys, just found out more about MP Server. Thanks to Koroush Ghazi the writer of [link]http://www.tweakguides.com/[/link], we can have a the new commands of the patch 1.0004.
I just write there, the command named ra maybe is for the Rcon tools. If anyone want"s to see the new commands, just take a look at [link]http://www.tweakguides.com/STALKER_8.html[/link], in order to maintain the will of his creator of dont copy his works elsewhere.

Hope this can help too, have all fun,

I already said we had worked out

ra login <user> <password>

is how you login to rcon. But i have no idea where you set the user and password. Need to be able to login to work out how to use the commands. But I imagine it will just allow you to use sv_kick etc. So not really a problem that bit.

Little update, I found out that ra is the rcon command.
like "ra sv_max_ping_limit 20"

But I get the funny error: "srv: you dont have admin rights"


So yes, we need to find out that pass/user sett command.

Sup, same problem.

NLS have just reinstalled the whole thing, and I"ve tried to work with that ra command.
It"s funny because if you just write it, with any UserName o Password, it logs in. I thought that maybe I were dealing with a big security issue, but even if I wrote ra and seems to be logged in, I can"t do anything else.

I"m now looking in the files for some "interesting" command, but it seems that there"s nothing, or at least I can"t see anything helpful.

Have fun,
Dade

Well when I try to login I get dienied by the server.
And If I'm correct there is no commands to put it up.

So what I can think of is maybe to have a ltx file where the user and password is set and only those are allowed to use ra commands.

I"ve looked to all the files that I know where maybe there can be the command, also checked the log files when I pressed help command, but nothing.

As far I can say, when I press ra login name, without a password it just says me this: 2 args(user pass) needed.

Have fun,

Well we have got:

ra command (as rcon command)

ra login user pass (for login)

ra logout (for logout)

Now we need to know, how or where to put in the details too make an adminstrator account.

I'm still thinking of with my theory that there needs to be made an admin.ltx ect. where you put in name and password for each client you want to have access to the rcon (or ra if you prefer).
Aslong there is no command to put the details on.

if the dedicated server is initiated through a command line maybe these
rcon parameters are set within that, similiar as to how the server password is set.

Errr... I think there"s a strange error on the patch 1.0004. I"ve noticed that since the installation of 1.0004, there"s a strange error whenever a user join the server.
Is says item not found in registry [mp_players_rukzak]. It seems that it"s a Skin, as it says before Skin - actorsstalker_mpstalker_sv_rukzak_3.ogf. I dont know what are the consequences of this, but surely isn"t something good for the server at all. Maybe this would need to be checked for next patches.

Have all great fun,

well our guys have at least figured out a few things in regards to setting up the server well...

but it still would be nice to know that besides Rcon login in and password what commands can be used...

also want to set up map rotation and reoccuring messages welcoming players to our server...

in most other game rcons you can do this...

can't be that 'well' if you don't even have map rotation. seems only a single map has been specified when your server was set up. was it set up through a command line or from the actual game interface?
your missing the 'maprot_list.ltx' file. the server will generate this file if more than a single map is selected for gameplay, and thus providing rotation.

Again thank you Don...

Tonight we had a hacker on our TAW server...had just joined and was soon running around with the FT 200M taking out 4 people at once...plus was using a name changing script that started to flood the server...we had to shut down and reboot it...

Soon as we sift thru and get this moron's IP I'll let you guys know so you can keep this trash out of your servers...


These instructions couldn't come at a better time...hopefully they'll also deal with people like this idiot who hacked on our server...

REMOTE ADMIN in a patch 1.0004

Patch 1.0004 to game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl brings additional opportunities in a control system of servers of game. With the purpose of increase of efficiency of work of servers in game the command(team) of the removed management by a server – Remote Admin is added.


REMOTE ADMIN

Program Remote Admin is created for full management of a server from the remote computer.


– How to adjust(set up) the removed management of a server?

For adjustment(option) it is necessary on a server which you wish to operate, in a folder appdata to create a file radmins.ltx in which the account of the manager and its(his) password will be registered. For example, so:

[radmins]
killer = 123456
lamer = 654321

Where killer, lamer – accounts of the manager, and 123456, 654321 – corresponding(meeting) passwords.

After creation of a file radmins.ltx, it is enough to manager to come into game and, having lowered(omitted) the console to write:

ra login killer 123456

And to press key Enter. Now full management of the given server is accessible to you.


– How there is a management of the removed server?

Management of the removed server is accessible by introduction of the certain commands(teams) in the game console. All commands(teams) should begin with ra, for example:

ra sv_timelimit 100

ra logout


^^ Thats using an online translator from the post on the russian forums.

Basically you stuff a file name radmins.ltx in the same folder you have server.ltx, the file needs the [radmins] at the top and you put admins in the following form at user = password , with each user on a different line.

Multiplay servers are now set up with rcon.

Do you or anyone else know of a command that lets you broadcast a "Welcome to the Server" message like other server consoles do?

Thx for the traduction, is this the document of Don, or is just a "home-made" manual from your Community? In any case, thx again.

As NightWolf, which is the command for speaking from admin side? Maybe can be done something like an automatic message?

Thx for all, great help Stalkers. Have all fun with that rcon possibilities,

in playing with the 'ra sv_banplayer_ip' console command, the server requests a time reference. any digits that are input are read in
'seconds' of time. if you easily just enter a '-1' for this input, the server
quite effectively bans the player for 136 years.

it would just ban the ip labeled to the player at the time as displayed in
the 'sv_listplayers' console command. you can see this
in the banned.ltx file along with a date of time indicating
the length of the ban.

I think that Stalker needs bans from GUIDs, instead of using IPs. Normally, people have dynamic IPs, then they will just have to restart the router, and they can return.

Banning GUIDs instead, is a good way to prevent even cheating. It"s easy to distribute for help other servers preventing from cheaters, and doesn"t brake any kind of laws related on "personal information of IPs". Maybe this would be helpful for a next patch

Have fun,

I agee, like on steam games, if you ban the steamid they need another account to return.

That's a good suggestion that they should make, that it bans the players game id.

Anyway, I dont think there"s any need of a GUID system. In my opinion, it would be easy and simple to just use the last 5 or 4 digits of the CDKeys. I suppose it"s easy enough to use a simple system like that.
Else of helping in bans, it would be helpful to prevent STALKER from cheaters. Surely, if you know that you will be banned if using any cheat would make you thinking a lot more before using any cheat.

Hope this idea goes to someone there on the Development Team. Have all fun,

Can I ask what could potentially be a really stupid message?!

Where would I find the appdata folder to place my radmins.ltx file into for rcon access?

I'm really struggeling with the translation.
