if you connect procon directly to your server instead of connecting to a hosted layer does that fix the problem?

I mean connecting your procon client, on your computer, directly to your game server. You use your battlefield server IP, rcon port, and rcon password, no username. Turn off your procon layer and try this, does it work?

Oh, you're running a hacked version of the server, that explains it. Please do not continue interactions with these forums. Thank you.

Procon server from gameservers

Bf3 server from gameservers

Problem which is why im here

so Whats your problem apart from being unhelpful and rude as a senior forum member i would expect more if not maybe its time to give it up.

Or perhaps you don t want newbies on your forum that don t have as much knowledge about servers

My mistake, reinstalling the game server and procon at the same time implied it was on your local machine, which is not allowed. Illegitimate servers usually end up having random issues with rcon protocols like you described. If all is legit then you're fine. Not sure why you immediately jumped to personal insults instead of simply clarifying your server was legit, but i'll run with it.

 

Flags not showing up could mean that the IP data file procon uses to determine which country a player's from is out of date. Although that usually just means that some of the players will be missing flags, not all of them.

As for death markers constantly next to players that's more odd. Perhaps the spawn events aren't working properly, that's supposed to clear off that marker. Connect your local procon instance to your server to setup proconrulz or another customizable tool like that to post a message in chat when player's spawn. Then spawn into the server and see if the message is posted as you'd expect. You should also see a blue highlight on your player's row in procon's player list.

As for punkbuster, check that with your layer host, unless you have specifically toggled the punkbuster option off in procon under the configuration tab it should remain active.

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
