  • need help testing TGNS upgrade (passworded server)

    I'm upgrading the AMXX install on TGNS tomorrow mid-day. AMXX is the administrative mod which drives damn near every customization you see (and don't see) on the server. Everything is working pretty smoothly these days, and we're several releases behind with AMXX, so I'm taking this time to bring us current, knowing that I can revert to the very complete backup I'll make before upgrading if we run into any problems I can't solve immediately.

    While TGNS holds its own well enough with the current version, the version of AMXX I'll be installing tomorrow is expected to require considerably less resources of the box on which TGNS is hosted (no, it can't and won't host two NS servers), and the new AMXX version I'll be installing has new features I hope to use in future plugin development.

    If you're idle tomorrow mid-day, please think of me and FIND ME, as I would VERY MUCH appreciate you hanging out on IM/IRC or (preferably) Teamspeak, joining TGNS when I tell you to and helping me test that our status quo has been maintained despite the upgrade. Gameplay will not occur during this time (one or two hours at the most, I suspect) beyond what we do for testing, and the server will have a password of "upgrade".

    I'll bump this thread tomorrow when I begin. This upgrade is not trivial, and I'd appreciate you guys helping out by being around to help me test stuff (lots of stuff).

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

              I'll be on the server presently, testing just about everything under the sun.

                      Thank goodness this won't turn into another NSA with multiple servers running concurrently on one box. On a side note, is there a way to record HLTV demos without you're stats plugin being recorded also Wyzcrak?

                        Ugh. I have looked and looked and looked for a way to remove the HLTV stuff when a demo is viewed, but I can't do it. I don't want to just flat out disable it, because it's very useful (especially now that I've added RT counts) when you're watching a live game (and even some demos).

                        There was a time when I had two HLTV proxies connect to the server, one with the text and one without. I'll likely return to that in time, as I really would like the best of both worlds.

                        I just hate giving up on my hunt to figure out how to disable that text. I'd even be willing to screw with an HL install (delete a DLL responsible for the drawing of that text on the client, or something) if I thought that would do the trick.

                        Man I have searched and searched.
