Advanced In-Game Admin and Ban Enforcer - AdKats


Message added by Prophet731,

If you've been banned from a server then you will need to appeal the ban with the owners/community of that server. We do not control any bans done on servers that utilize AdKats as all bans are local to that server.

Hi.Plugin gets an error every day.Yes, restarting the plugin will get rid of the error.But this is very inconvenient, since after restarting the plugin, after a while the error appears again.as soon as the error resumes spamming occurs every second and Procon stops responding to admin commands or responds to them for a very long time.Please tell me what to do or release a plugin fix

Hi.
I seem to be stuck at VIP/reserved slot problem and can't find the cause. One server host, two different servers, on one admins and vip slot players can join full server and it will free up slot, on the other it seems to be with no affect. Scrubbed through settings for both, and it seems they are the same. Maybe missed some really obvious thing, any help would be appreciated. Using Adkats for managing vip/reserved

Does Adkats need the MULTIBalance external plugin or is it enough to enable MULTIBalance in orchestration?

You still need multibalancer. The orchestration options only define which group will be automatically added to the multibalancer lists. (As stated in the manual of AdKats)

Layer server issue. Its sort of to do with ADKATS in that it's stopped working trying to prove to my provider thats it the layer server at fault.

 

AdKats] ERROR-7600: [Unable to fetch required documentation files. AdKats cannot be started.]
[19:31:56 78] [AdKats] ERROR-7600: [Failed to fetch plugin links.]
[19:31:57 10] [AdKats] ERROR-7600: [Failed to fetch plugin readme.]
[19:31:57 41] [AdKats] ERROR-7600: [Failed to fetch plugin changelog.]
 

This was a previuously working solution, until i noticed ADKATS was having an issue so i restarted the layer server (wish i hadnt) and i'm now stuck at the above.

The provider says ( i have my doubts)  the machine that is running the layer server can see all links in the web request section however the above error says it cant or is being blocked.

I have tripple checked all the SQL settings and if i stop the layer server and run procon locally directly to the game server and use the exact same database it all works.

A couple of qiestions:

1) Can i move the json files to the layer server? i know this would probably stop/break updates to these so probably not wise.

2) Or is there i can anything i can type into procon somewhere to see if it can resolve DNS or see github?

 

Any help apprcriated

Nothing you can do. If the layer is having issues resolving those web requests then it's on their end somehow. Either DNS not cached right or being blocked.

I asked my provider to delete the DNS name cache and to use a different DNS. I will report what that brought.

I am with i3D, they couldnt work it out either.

check what the layer server cersion number is. I doubt it will make any difference but mine was 1.5.1.1 and is now 1.5.3.5 other than that it looked copy and pasted as all i had to do was re-enable ADKATS

Edited by SpazmoidJAm

My provider is 4netplayers.
Layer version is 1.5.1.1. Updating to the latest Version (1.5.3.5) has failed. Procon has no Plugins loaded. Unfortunately, due to lack of time, they have no time to investigate this error.
My Provider has to do all updates. I have no access (FTP, etc.) to the server.

The provider was able to rule out a problem with the DNS. You suspect the bug is on Github's side.
On my side, I'm missing the informations too. See Picture.

thats what i was seeing, the rest of what you normally see is whats fetched from github.

 

Your layer server can not fetch the files it needs from github.

 

My layer server was working and then stopped so i dont think its to do with the layer version.

Sounds more like your provider having issues. I don't have issues over at EZRCON with the procon layers. @Hedius also self-hosts his layers and doesn't have an issue.

This is because it's unable to reach github to fetch weapon stats definitions among other things.
Contact your layer host and make sure the procon layer can access the following domains.

    • 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.

    • 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

    • 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.
