Trouble with updating Procon

Recommended Posts

Hello there.

 

I just downloaded procon from the download section here, and it seems like it's still trying to contact repo.myrcon.COM for updates.

I tried to work around this by pointing to the myrcon.net IP via HOSTS file, but to no avail.

 

What am I doing wrong? I can't connect to my server without an update, apparently.

It shouldn't be checking for updates because that should be the most updated client.

 

@ColColonCleaner are you able to rebuild procon to avoid the checks for updates in the base program or we could update it to check for a new version at myrcon.net instead if for some reason an old bug now shows up.

I agree, it shouldn't, since even my server provider recommends the current 1.5.1.1 - but to the best of my knowledge it does. It also offers me to send usage statistics to the old .COM site in the initial setup.

I'm experiencing high levels of weirdness here.

 

I gave it a shot and simply downloaded all files from my servers procon layer to overwrite my local procon. Once I do that, I'm in a weird state of half-connect - I can see the current player count and my servers name on procons homepage, however when I want to access anything else it reports incorrect user/password. Additionally, I noticed that the config I downloaded from the procon layer uses another port (47200 instead of 13041 like the setup instructions from my server provider says).

 

If I only overwrite everything BUT the/config folder I'm back to the state of "trying to connect" while my procon client displays the following error message in the bottom (after reverting my modifications to the hosts-file):

 

"Error downloading update: the remote name could not be resolved 'repo.myrcon.com' (translated from german error message).

@Wurmfutter just turn off update check on both your Procon layer on host and client

https://prnt.sc/osvx9y

also you can disable udpate via FTP on you Layer

go to Configs\procon.cfg and set to FALSE http://prntscr.com/osvygz by default they are TRUE

 

 

@Prophet731 you can set to false update check and distribute with the update disabled download version on you webstie.

Colon was going to release a new procon version that supports the latest .NET framework. So makes sense to just do it then.

SOLVED.

 

I opened a ticket with my server provider and they did "something", I'm now able to connect using 1.5.1.1. Seems like the issue was on their side.

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
