  • The current server crisis...

    So, lemme see if I got this...

    Server 1 is not passworded.
    Server 2 is passworded - known only by PCS Proven.

    We updated the servers, and they were crashing. So we did some work and got server 2 up. We decided not to bring up #1 until 2 proved stable. #2 is PCS Proven only.
    Saturday night sometime, #2 crashed (cuz of de_nuke, we think).

    As of Sunday 9:24 AM (CST), #2 is up. #1 is still down pending #2 stability assurance.

    Is that all correct?

    Following that, I'd also like to know the answer to this question (asked before, but not answered):
    I can't see the TG servers in the in-game browser. Because of the servers going up and down, I don't know whether it's because they're down, or I don't know where to look for them. (I don't know their names - tho I assume they start with "Tactical Gamer" or "TG" or some such.)

    Also, while I'm at it, do you guys use the in-game CS voice comms at all, or just TS?

    Yes, although it was up for a moment around 10:20 AM EST

      I don't know when they are going to be stable again but I'm getting the withdrawal shakes.

      Is there a 12 step program for TG withdrawal?

          Please PM me if you can identify where there's a crisis.

          Correct about server 1

          Server 2 requires a password AND membership of the PCS Proven forum group. This is so that the hardcore PCS players have a haven that's free from pubbies. Any player that shows they are PCS material gets access to this group with very little in the way of red tape.

          Correct. Valve have basically broken every CS:S server using the mani admin mod (including us). Particularly, weapon restrictions are disabled, meaning the pubbies (and I include some ppl with TG accounts in that) can turn the server into an AWP fest.

          I changed the map to de_nuke via remote, and this broke the server. The server has now been restarted, and I have posted asking admins and temp admins NOT to change to this map again until I verify that it will work.

          Normally I monitor the server via remote quite closely (unless I'm gaming), but as the PCS proven players have shown an almost complete lack of interest in server 2 since PCS proven was launched, I wasn't paying an awful lot of attention to it last night. Otherwise the problem would have been picked up on quicker.

          Correct when you asked, but no longer correct. Server 1 is back up without weapon restrictions.

          Any TG member who buys an AWP or Autosniper should consider themselves warned : We do NOT permit these weapons on our server. Do not risk your continued access to our PCS servers by taking advantage of a flaw in the admin program and purchasing these weapons.

          The servers SHOULD show up in your browser if you sort by server name. Our servers both have spaces at the beginning, which should put them at the top of your list.

          Despite TS being much better quality, and frequent problems with the in-game audio, no-one seems to use TS :(

                    Noooooooooo! I was hoping we would have the AWP and Autosniper!!

                    Kidding :P Though I have to say, the autosniper is kick-ass on those zombie mods. :P

                      Thanks for the info, Root.
                      Have you considered turning off in-game voip to force players to use TS?
                      Especially on the PCS server?

                        I would use TS is there were ever people on. I can barely make out what people are saying over the ingame voip alot of the time. There whould have to be a way to prevent people from talking after they die though.

                          This may have been suggested before, but how about opening up server 2 while server 1 is down (assuming server 2 is stable). At least we could all get our fix.

                            The reason server 2 is up is to ensure that everything is working properly. Server 1 will be opened up when everything is smooth and stable. For any more than that... see Root? :P

                              We've discussed TS within the context of PCS before. Search the forums if you want to learn about past discussions. If you want to have future (or what you might call "present" discussions), please don't.

                              Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
