To STOP Demo Server Crashing
« on: March 27, 2004, 08:23:08 am »
OK I  DO NOT want to talk about how to make the servers crash....  I want to find a way to stop it.   It's funny how those demo .96 cheaters want to come in and crash all the .98 servers because they're pissed off. However, it's pretty damn childish...   anyway,  I'm hoping that someone out there can help figure a way to mod the extracted demo and stop whatever kind of error causes this.  That way, I can run a .98 server that cannot be crashed by those goobers.  (really just 1 goober, who shall remain nameless)  but his NORMAL name when he plays is [RS]Blow.   Of course he changes it when he runs around crashing servers.   Anyway, hopefully Mullah Omar or somebody with some experience can give me idea of how to stop this.  Surely something in the extracted demo can be edited in order to stop this.

I remember how!
I think it is still up for download in the old section.

Just d/l it and look it over T.W.

It was for 1.3 I think but you could mod it for the VC demo easy enough.

All it does is look for the call for a file not found and the scrip says "yes I found it." so the server will not crash.

Only one of the things that some of the TKC programmers made that are not cheats.

Thanx a bunch man,   i can't remember the old site though   lol    could you please post a link, or more specificly a link to the right download would be fantastic.  Meantime, I'll keep hunting.  I think the old site might still be in my favs somewhere.   Script file for 1.3 i'm looking for?

Ok, scratch that ,   I found the SrvCrshPack.exe file    Now I just gotta figure out how to use this to keep the 98 demo server from failing.  I'm guessing the trainer is for crashing on the selected team.  I'm going to experiment around a bit, if you could give me some ideas of where to put what to make it block the crash   plz let me know   THANX!

I don't remember, but I think that the crasher just works for 1.3 and that it just protects from the same crasher program if it's used on you.

You can't stop the demo server crashings, you can just shoot a few hundreds of m79s and the server is down anytime. You can't fix the error messages either as long as they aren't generated by a program. I doubt so, I can't either see what's wrong in the error log as I haven't got the info about its structure or the game source.

However can you specify how the server is crashed?

Thanx man,  it works great though. Solved my problem completely.  Now I can Kick that ass that caused the server to crash when he joined.  Problem solved.  (I don't know if he's using the same prog to crash)

Yes but like MO said...the DEMO has so many problems with it that it can be crashed.

File not found is most often the cuase but too many garnades/AS/M-79 bursts in a given amount of time will do the same thing.

Those 2 issues wer fixed in the 1.4/1.41 patchs yet another two ways are still in the 1.6.

We hide that info alot better so we do not have another leak and some "clan" guy goes wild crashing servers again!

I thought you die hard clan players had no time for the demo anyhow...you setting up a server for the guys at school?

We could use some fresh meat in the game!

I like playing the demo a lot, mainly because it's like a miniature vietcong community. Just about all the people that play the .98 demo know each other, and know who the goobers are.  Plus , it's easier for me to play with my friend down the street in public servers, because he's on dialup and there is no ping kick in the demo.    And as far as crashing the servers with the M79, usually cheaters doing things like that get booted out pretty quick in .98

Try useing the FA demo....you get the extra map AND the 1.5/1.6 patch.
I never looked but it probibly also has the server commands as well.

Try it and let us know.

all the servers on there boot for high ping....   OK, the only reason that this guy is able to do this is because of info he obtained from this site..  I beg you Mullah Omar , I know it would be simple for you to make a functional sheild for the .98 demo.   Because if you don't, then nobody is ever going to be able to play it.  There are no other patches for the demo, and no other way to stop this error.  I'm sure a script like what ZoldDude was talking about would work.  Somebody help me out here...  Please

if you paid any attention dumbass, you would know that he started using my name after I made the first server he couldn't join. Pay attention and ask around, he hates me cause I'm the only one that has even remotely been able to stop him.
