Oh dear. He’s going to hijack the server.



Dr.Hax: This is clearly someone using fog editor


I wonder who?



*DEAD* Dr.Hax: Someone hacked a fog editor or some shit like that


Of course, Dr.Hax! It’s just a coincidence you’re name is Dr.Hax!

Explain how he just spawned that in? It clearly says RESTRICTED.

He made these giant props invisible and put them at spawn so everyone got trapped.

[Sighs]



Dr.Hax: fine ill stop
Dr.Hax: nah im jokin your all fucked


No! :frowning:

So, Do you guys have a fix for this? It’s rather annoying and he keeps doing it.

Do you have your rcon password in server.cfg?

Of course. I use PlugPayPlay, And it uses TCAdmin. I have access to everything.

Basically, one of your addons has a backdoor allowing him to run code on your server or set himself to super admin.

Post your addons.

Easy solution, “!ban hax 0 hack” or add STEAM_0:1:51143370 to banned_users.cfg.
Remove your rcon_password from your server.cfg if it is there and put it in your commandline
Disable sv_allowupload just to be sure
Check your addons for any shady ones.
Maybe invest in an anti-cheat.

or you can do what I do and ban his IP. I don’t have an unban IP function so they can’t unban their IP. That’s just me.

Not sure why I’m listed as dumb for asking him if he had his rcon password saved in his server.cfg file. It happens way too often that some random script kid gets their hands on the rcon password if it’s saved in there :confused:

Ignore the dumb rates, people on the internet are too lazy to speak their mind so they choose to click a button instead

Do you have wire?

I am fairly certain that this is due to a bug in Advanced Duplicator 2. If you run DarkRP, you have to restrict everything using FPP (weapons, ammo, other entities). Advanced Duplicator 2 does not properly check for limits and spawns items even though they should not be able to be spawned.

So, if you are running DarkRP, it’s most likely him having dupes of weapons and other entities (such as the fog editor), otherwise, listen to all other people in this thread.

Ask PlugPayPlay (shit host anyway, had terrible experiences with it) to put your rcon password in the command line, if they do not offer a way to do this using the Command Line Editor on TCAdmin.

You get what you pay for.

I can get vpses cheaper than them with the same hardware.

The servers aren’t top-notch. They do not know what they are talking about, FTP is slow, support is terrible. They offer live support and have a big button on their website saying “OFFLINE” almost every time of the day. I am 100% sure they overuse their dedicated servers by running way too many gameservers on them. That’s probably how they keep the price low. I understand that you say “you get what you pay for”, but a cheap host is still expected to do it’s work, especially if they advertise with “top notch gameservers”. The average server owner does not know anything about servers nor performance so he just sees it as an epic deal, rather than a shit host.

100% agree. I’ve always said exactly the same thing. ‘Almost’ every, and I say almost because there has to be at least one, game server host don’t know what they are doing. Like you said they over-load their servers, they barely know what they are talking about when you do get through to their support.

Yes, you do ‘get what you pay for’ but like Cyberuben said, they are still expected to be use-able, and most of them aren’t. Although saying that, I did calculate the cost of buying a dedicated server then reselling on game servers to people, and even if I squeezed servers together ( so it was overloaded ) I still only just would have made back what I was spending. It’s just not worth it.

Server owner here, had server with PPP back when I first started my server and had no idea about hosting, Ping was average, about 40 for most people, DDoS protection was shit and download speed was shit. Half the time FastDL didn’t work and FastDL synced the code for my addons. Just finished moving my servers to VPSes.
