Name Change

People can spam the new feature that shows a person that changed their name and crash the server in less then a second. I am either requesting it be removed or something on it to stop spam.

Crashed my server instantly.

This was done by a script, and is nothing new.

I remembered that someone have created a server-side script that adds a configurable minimum time delay between each name changes, to prevent crashes due to namechange spam.

Well I have never seen it before, just wish something is done about it if not already.

Link me if you can find it.

I would have posted it if I knew

Before it worked but it reset after a split second, new update has put this back

Changing name once causes server to crash…even with

setinfo name hello

In console.

I am able to change my name without server crashing… Just this script to spam I see becoming a BIG problem.

Shouldn’t crash the server, plus this is nothing new. Just that now it’s showing in chat.

It is new to me… your name actually changes in game, you don’t have to rejoin the server.

i need help, i need a couple of ragdolls made from art work done by my sister. i’ll make sure that the art work will be as clear as posible. if any one is intrested please e-mail at tripprules@yahoo.com.
