Set your IL debug_level to 4 to get debugging info for cache requests. In general, when debugging a problem in IL, set to 4.

 

EDIT: from code inspection, I can see one failure mode for IL that isn't well handled. If a cache request times out (based on your IL wait_timeout value, usually 30 seconds), IL unwinds out of the request and as far as it is concerned, the request is done and forgotten. However, Battlelog Cache may still be chewing on it. Eventually, Battelog Cache finishes and tells IL "here's that stuff you requested". IL, having totally forgotten about the request at this point, thinks, "WTF is this Unknown cache response_"

 

This could result in an endless cha-cha line of "Unknown cache response" errors if BC takes > 30 seconds to process a request.

 

There's not much I can really do about it. I can't tell BC to forget about the request IL is no longer interested in, there's no API for that. You should not increase your timeout, 30 seconds is already generous. The best I can do is quiet down the spam so that you only see the warnings if you set debug_level to 4 or higher. The failures will still happen, but that's the same story for all stats fetching situations these days.

 

The rest, the NullRef exceptions and the Cache response collision stuff, is probably just some inadequate housekeeping. Those should be easy to fix.

The problems may have been with my connection to the offsite MySQL DB.

Once I disabled the BattlelogCache plugin and set IL Debug on 4 all returned to normal. Been testing this the whole day without errors.

 

XPKillers stats plugin never had issues during this.

 

I just enabled BattlelogCache again to see if that works well again :ohmy:

 

Will report back tomorrow.

also since you are doing upgrades every now and then, can we have some object for the hour or related to time ? to make it easier to create time based limits.

 

something like server.Hour or plugin.Time

How about these existing server properties:

Code:

double TimeRound { get; }                // Time since round started
    double TimeTotal { get; }                // Time since plugin enabled
    double TimeUp { get; }                   // Time since last server restart
:ohmy:

 

If you want the clock time, that is provided by C#/.Net with:

Code:

DateTime.Now
So for example, to get the current hour of the day, you use:

Code:

DateTime.Now.Hour

well you can add a server object like "server.DateTime" and we can use it like "server.DateTime.Hour" and it will do that job, it is a small quality of life change that i thought of since i saw you doing minor changes :smile:

 

Edit : and it will be added to the plugin description, this way it is easier to remember/look up.

 

sometimes i have to go back to some time related plugins just to remember the DateTime.

Changes made for 0.9.8.0:

 

  • Added plugin.GetReservedSlotList function
  • Added plugin.CheckAccount function
  • Added use_stats_log plugin setting
  • Fixed NullReferenceException errors when using Battlelog Cache. In general, reduced the amount of logging spam when using Battlelog Cache for debug_level 3 or lower.

NOTE: since logging of error messages has been reduced, you have to increase your debug_level in order to see warnings and errors that you used to see at level 3. If you want to see why stats fetching is failing, you have to set your debug_level to 4.

 

Usage of plugin.GetReservedSlotList()

 

Code:

List<String> GetReservedSlotsList();
You can now use your reserved slots list in your limit code. You can use it instead of whitelist or custom lists. For example, the first time a player on the reserved slots lists spawns, send a yell to all players with this OnSpawn second_check Code:

 

Code:

if (limit.Activations(player.Name) > 1) return false;
if (plugin.GetReservedSlotsList().Contains(player.Name)) {
    plugin.SendGlobalYell("VIP " + player.FullName + " is in the house!");
}
return false;
NOTE: The list is only fetched once, at plugin activation time. If you edit the reserved slots list in the middle of a game session while Insane Limits is active, the update will not be recognized unless you disable Insane Limits, wait a few seconds, and then enable Insane Limits again. Alternatively, if you don't want to disable Insane Limits, you can go to the Console tab in Procon and type this RCON command to the game server:

Code:

reservedSlotsList.list
That will update Insane Limits.

 

Usage of plugin.CheckAccount() function

 

Code:

bool CheckAccount(String name, out bool canKill, out bool canKick, out bool canBan, out bool canMove, out bool canChangeLevel);
You can now check to see if a player has an account on your Procon instance and what privileges they have. A player with an account that has canKick privilege may be treated as an admin from your limit code. If the function returns False, the player is not currently joined on the server or the player does not have an account in your Procon instance.

 

This OnSpawn first_check Code example kicks all Rank 145 (100 Colonel) players, unless they are admins:

 

Code:

if (player.StatsError) return false; // Can't determine rank, so ignore
if (player.Rank < 145) return false; // Ignore everyone else
bool canKill = false;
bool canKick = false;
bool canBan = false;
bool canMove = false;
bool canChangeLevel = false;

bool hasAccount = plugin.CheckAccount(player.Name, out canKill, out canKick, out canBan, out canMove, out canChangeLevel);

if (hasAccount && canKick) return false; // don't kick admins

plugin.KickPlayerWithMessage(player.Name, "GTFO, we don't need any 100 Colonel hackers here!");

I'd like to have it set so that when someone types "admin" the chat, such as "is there an admin here" or "admin" (Doesn't matter where the word admin is), the server auto responds saying who is an admin, for example "Admin kcuestag is online", and if no admins online, just say something like "There is no Admin online right now".

 

I'd really appreciate this.

Not to hijack this thread, but as stated in your other thread, the plugin you've been looking for (and that already does exactly that) is NotifyMe*. Whilst the possibilites with IL are awesome, it would be nice not to throw everything in there but also give other plugin-authors a chance to distribute their work. With the current situation (many questions/ideas for new plugins get "quitted" with a "Post it in the IL thread, it can somehow do that"), the chance of new plugin being created is way lower than it was before. Furthermore, it cannot hurt to "distribute" the load on several plugins, especially since some hosters have already "complained" that large/cluttered IL-installations cause problems in their hosting environments.

I'm concerned to learn that there might be some developer frustration over Insane Limits. IL was never intended to corner the market on plugin development. It was meant to fill a gap for coders who needed something relatively simple but didn't want to invest in writing a fullblown plugin. It lowers the barrier to entry for plugin writers. Non-coders should consider Insane Limits only as a last, desperate resort.

 

No doubt fans of Insane Limits are quick to recommend it. While that's gratifying, I do agree that it isn't always the best or even third best choice for a particular request.

 

Most admins just need something simple and easy to use. CheatDetector is the textbook example: everything it does could be done by Insane Limits, but it's about 1000x easier to use than IL because it can focus on doing one specific task. I would never want to see IL inhibit the creation of plugins like CheatDetector.

 

Here is what I would recommend to fans of Insane Limits for how to support your favorite plugin but at the same time insure that you are not doing a disservice to the community of developers or users (not to mention putting more work on my plate that I don't need :smile:).

 

1) Encourage the requestor to search the existing standalone plugins (not Insane Limits nor ProconRulz) for something close to what they need.

 

2) If it doesn't exist, wait a decent amount of time for a developer to step forward and work with the requestor. Give it at least a week. You can even encourage developer interest if you want something similar by posting a, "+1, I want this too," reply to the original request.

 

3) If no developer steps forward and the requestor is still interested, find out if the requestor is or is not a coder. If not, I think it's fine to suggest they post a request in Insane Limits Requests (the ProconRulz fanbase may suggest they post in the ProconRulz thread, which is fine).

 

4) If the requestor is a coder, encourage them to write a standalone plugin of their own and share it with everyone else. That insures that we don't miss out the next big thing, like CheatDetector. Only if they don't have the time/energy to invest in doing a full blown plugin should Insane Limits be suggested as an alternative.

 

Furthermore, it cannot hurt to "distribute" the load on several plugins, especially since some hosters have already "complained" that large/cluttered IL-installations cause problems in their hosting environments.

I think a lot of that is overblown or urban myth, but be that as it may, having a dozen standalone plugins which more-or-less do the same thing as a dozen Insane Limits isn't going to solve that problem. It will probably make it worse.

Stuff like balancing and vote map and vote ban indeed are better on otherr plugins, but cheatdetector is not something that you want to use for banning, i hate that plugin because it support the actions of blind madmins. I hate madmins.

Are you hosting Procon yourself?

It looks to me you have no permission to write the config to disc.

Have you tried running TS3Sync with "Run plugins with no restrictions"? I've heard of plugins not running because they can't run in a sandbox, but I've never heard of a plugin not running because it was taken out of the sandbox.

Make sure you disable the sandbox on your layer, not on your local Procon-client (either disable it via RemoteDesktop and the layer-gui or change "procon.private.options.runPluginsInSandbox" to "False" in the procon.cfg file of your procon layer.

Keep getting this exception error at what seems to be random times. Currently its running Norshar Canals Large Conquest 64 player. Any idea whats triggering this? We have full access to our procon install through branzone. Sandbox is turned off. Never saw this error before updating from 0.97 to 0.98.

 

Edit: Whatever it is seems to completely lag out procon for that server. Ive manually restarted the server 3 times now. As soon as I bring it back up, IL throws that error and its 30 second timeouts make pulling 60 players worth of data from battlelog impossible. It ends up timing out my Procons connection to the layer. The listing above are the errors it throws right off the bat after rebooting the server. And after finally getting the procon layer up and not lagged out again, it starts doing this again:

Everyone gets these errors from time to time. They indicate that you are having some kind of network congestion between your layer and your game server. Restarting procon or re-enabling Insane Limits makes the problem worse, as you noticed, due to refetching stats for all players. The lag is not due to Insane Limits -- during the 30 seconds (or 60 if you have changed it), Insane Limits is literally doing nothing but waiting for the game server to respond. The lag is due to a network problem associated with your layer, not IL. The upgrade to 0.9.8.0 is a coincidence.

 

Don't blame the messenger. IL is trying to tell you to complain to your layer hosting service. :smile:

 

Raising the value to 60 reduces the frequency of errors, but does not make them go away altogether. Raising it higher than 60 just hides the networking problem from you, it doesn't fix the underlying problem.

 

Are you by any chance running TrueBalancer with stats fetching enabled? That plugin does induce lag/freezes in Procon, whether or not the network is congested, but it is worse if the network is congested. Consider disabling stats fetching in TrueBalancer when you see these kinds of IL errors.

Indeed we are running TrueBalancer. Weve tried to swap out to Insane Balancer, and Live Balancer, but they just dont seem to have all the kinks worked out or run quite the way we like them too. But I will definitely take that into consideration next time and possibly look at reconfiguring them to use the in-game stats instead of stat-fetching from bf3. Thanks for the advice guys!

Make sure you disable the sandbox on your layer, not on your local Procon-client (either disable it via RemoteDesktop and the layer-gui or change "procon.private.options.runPluginsInSandbox" to "False" in the procon.cfg file of your procon layer.

Thanks, that fixed it.

limit_1_state Enabled

limit_1_name Your Rank is too high for this server!

limit_1_evaluation OnJoin

limit_1_first_check Expression

limit_1_first_check_expression (player.Rank > 60)

limit_1_action Kick

Post your Battlelog Profile. I don't think you understand the ranks correctly.

 

Rank 100 actual equals Rank 145.

    • Game Server Hosting:

      We're happy to announce that EZRCON will branch out into the game server provider scene. This is a big step for us so please having patience if something doesn't go right in this area. Now, what makes us different compared to other providers? Well, we're going with the idea of having a scaleable server hosting and providing more control in how you set up your server. For example, in Minecraft, you have the ability to control how many CPU cores you wish your server to have access to, how much RAM you want to use, how much disk space you want to use. This type of control can't be offered in a single service package so you're able to configure a custom package the way you want it.

      You can see all the available games here. Currently, we have the following games available.

      Valheim (From $1.50 USD)


      Rust (From $3.20 USD)


      Minecraft (Basic) (From $4.00 USD)


      Call of Duty 4X (From $7.00 USD)


      OpenTTD (From $4.00 USD)


      Squad (From $9.00 USD)


      Insurgency: Sandstorm (From $6.40 USD)


      Changes to US-East:

      Starting in January 2022, we will be moving to a different provider that has better support, better infrastructure, and better connectivity. We've noticed that the connection/routes to this location are not ideal and it's been hard getting support to correct this. Our contract for our two servers ends in March/April respectively. If you currently have servers in this location you will be migrated over to the new provider. We'll have more details when the time comes closer to January. The new location for this change will be based out of Atlanta, GA. If you have any questions/concerns please open a ticket and we'll do our best to answer them.

    • Hello All,

      I wanted to give an update to how EZRCON is doing. As of today we have 56 active customers using the services offered. I'm glad its doing so well and it hasn't been 1 year yet. To those that have services with EZRCON, I hope the service is doing well and if not please let us know so that we can improve it where possible. We've done quite a few changes behind the scenes to improve the performance hopefully. 

      We'll be launching a new location for hosting procon layers in either Los Angeles, USA or Chicago, IL. Still being decided on where the placement should be but these two locations are not set in stone yet. We would like to get feedback on where we should have a new location for hosting the Procon Layers, which you can do by replying to this topic. A poll will be created where people can vote on which location they would like to see.

      We're also looking for some suggestions on what else you would like to see for hosting provider options. So please let us know your thoughts on this matter.

    • Hi All,

      So seeing as Venice Unleased is released, I'm looking into if I should offer game hosting for it. I would like some feedback on this subject.

    • So as the topic title says, should EZRCON offer general web hosting services?
      • 1 reply
    • Added ability to disable the new API check for player country info


      Updated GeoIP database file


      Removed usage sending stats


      Added EZRCON ad banner



      If you are upgrading then you may need to add these two lines to your existing installation in the file procon.cfg. To enable these options just change False to True.

      procon.private.options.UseGeoIpFileOnly False
      procon.private.options.BlockRssFeedNews False
