nice, i see it the first time. it must be a new setting in the adkats orchestration. it looks realy sexy.
as far as i understand, you have to set "Feed Server Reserved Slots: False" and "Send new reserved slots to VIP Slot Manager: True".

let me know if everything works...

LOL, as far as I know, this setting exists there for a long time.

So, now i can use Adkats's original Populator moniotor and it must work right?

No it does not - AdKats only sends the command for VSM if you give a player a reserved slot with /reserved time name (or so)

(So: add a player to the special player list)

The populator/discord/teamspeak module do not use this method of AdKats. I opened an issue, but haven't received an answer yet. @ColColonCleaner

This is true. The integration with VSM is bare bones because the people requesting VSM compatability only needed a small set of features.

There are two main types of special player status in AdKats, manual and verbose. Manual ones are issued directly (e.g. /reserved 3d playername) and have a set end date/time. I'm able to send these to VSM because of that end date/time. Verbose ones are calculated via a status of some kind and are temporary (e.g. populator, discord, teamspeak). Verbose special player status can vanish at any time and only sticks around for the duration its driving calculation is active (e.g. a person entering a monitored teamspeak channel). AdKats does verbose calculation every 5 minutes and on specific events (e.g. someone entering/leaving teamspeak, user updates, etc), and when that calculation happens it blows everything away and reseeds it with updated values. There isn't a way to do this reset process with VSM that i know of, so people with a status in VSM might never lose it once they stop having their special status in AdKats. It gets messy quick.

EDIT: The question i would have is why do you need VSM? You might be able to get what you want with just the AdKats features.

I'm thinking about two new features

The first one would be to be able to disable "Aggressive join" based on the time of the day that the server owner would choose
For example on my side i would like to disable "Aggressive join" from 00:00 to 08:00 so like that nobody will be kicked from VIP join at night

The second feature would be to disable "Aggressive join" if server isnt full (or near full capacity, like if server is under 60 real players on a 64 server "Aggressive join" is disable, if above 60 "Aggressive join" is enable)
Because as you know, pretty much all populated pc servers are seeded. And the problem is that sometime when you have lots players joining in same time it will show 64/64 when in fact server isnt full.
So if a VIP try to join at this moment, someone is getting kicked for nothing...

ok, i included few features in my unofficial version a year ago. but it still not enough to make an official release.
- enable aggressive join on full server only (exactly what you said)
- !switchme player msg when the server is full and switching can not work
- kicked for vip rejoin msg for bf3/bfh
- keep plugin enabled setting (normally the plugin get disabled if the sql database are offline)

I 'm having the same issue with my current provider. Can't access external connections. Not getting much help from them. Can anyone recommend a hosting/provider that allows external connections? It is pure and only for this plugin. Please let me know and a merry christmas.

I seem to run against this error. I was able to add some vip's but suddenly the website stopped working.

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)
DevTools failed to load SourceMap: Could not load content for http://xx.xx.xx.xx/bootstrap.min.css.map:
HTTP error: status code 404, net::ERR_HTTP_RESPONSE_CODE_FAILURE

We don't know what's happening + we can't find any file named: bootstrap.min.css.map

Have you any idea what went wrong? Thanks in advance.

clarification: the problem was a disabled function in the php configuration.

we did a bypass by editing the "api.php" file from the website. we replaced the "mb_substr" to "substr" in line 83,86,88.

there is no preset to change the language with few clicks. the only way is to translate each part by hand in the sourcecode:

from the website you find the folder "sections". there are 5 php files (home.php, login.php, user.php, userlist.php, vip.php). in each file the englisch language is fix incuded. with a bit html knowloedge you can try to change it there to ru. there is not so much text on website, so it should be not so hard.

i am not sure, but i think the calendar is a part of the bootstrap framework. i dont know how to translate this part.

when you disable the aggressive join in your startup.txt (reservedSlotsList.aggressiveJoin false) then it should be off by default. next step is the vip slot manager plugin setting "8. Server. Aggressive Join > Enable Aggressive Join... " and the setting "8. Server. Aggressive Join > Temporary disable the Aggressive Join close on round end".

its not a problem to whitelist all the vips. its just a setting on each plugin. ofc you have to use a seperate plugin instead of adkats for balance or ping checks.

    • 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
