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.

LOL. just lol. this has nothing to do with your procon version.

The connection from your server to github fails. This is neither related to the plugin nor to procon.

What the problem with AdKats at 1.5.1.1 procon?

So I don't know where you get the "all this is done to get people to switch to 1.5.3.5" no where do we say you need to run that version. Yes it's helpful because that is the most up-to-date version that's being supported. Also, you barely even gave 10 minute before posting "Me and no one wants to help". We all have lives outside of these forums. No one is on these forums day in and day out. It's not a job.

Well if it works with that version then did you try again the older version? Does it still give the same error? AdKats got updated to support proxy web requests. If it doesn't work with the older version, well, that sucks but we're only testing on the latest supported versions. The one "this" MyRCON has touched and published. You have the ability to revert AdKats back to the previous version if that was known to work with that version of procon (1.5.1.1).

On version 1.5.3.5 I am experiencing problems. Proсon hangs for a while from time to time on 4 cores and 6 gigs of RAM. Version 1.5.1.1 does not have this problem. But on 1.5.1.1 i cant run AdKats new version or old

Did you add these two variables to your procon.cfg file? Look under the changelog for them.

Procon lags can be due to the fact that for example the RCON port falls off or is blocked by a firewall or something else?

I've been trying to figure this out on my own the past few days but haven't had any luck. I can get the StatsLogger plugin to show up in Procon and it successfully runs and creates its tables, I then run the AdKats sql file and have it create its tables, place the AdKats cs file in my BF4 plugins, restart the Procon layer and AdKats never appears in my plugins. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, my Procon is running version 1.5.1.2 as that's as high of a version I can update it to on Fragnet. Statslogger is version 1.0.0.3 and Adkats is the latest version (did try 7.6.0.1 with no luck). Let me know if you need any screenshots!

Maybe, but that's outside of Procon area if that happens

Sounds like it's not compiling. If you have access to the file browser for your instance then delete the AdKats.dll if it exists.

This is might sound weird, but like 2 minutes before you replied (so about 20 minutes after my post) it compiled and it shows up now! I guess I just had to wait a while for it to run all the way, thanks for the reply tho!

I checked the procon on 2 servers that are on different hosting - the procon lags the same, it also started lagging 1.5.1.1

I have 3 different machines - everywhere the procon lags sometimes, also the procon on the g-portal sometimes catches the hang. I know that now there is a big problem with the battlelog, it may not process the information you ask the first time , maybe because of this? Does procon work with the battlelog even if no plugin is enabled?

Am I really the only one that the procon may not answer for a couple of minutes?

You need to run procon as a service using the console exe.  Don't try to use the GUI to actually run servers....that ends badly.

Also definitely use 1.5.3.5....not 1.5.1.1 which is way laggier.

1.5.3.5 -> procon.protected.layer.enable True 27262 "0.0.0.0" "PRoCon[%servername%]" - > PRoCon.Console.exe

@Prophet731 Hi, why can i only use one proxy? Why can't I list a few?
example: 
https://prnt.sc/15q4qnu

Only one URL is supported as your proxy should be the one to route to the different endpoints you want transparently.

Can you make it possible to add several proxies to the group variable and add the setting "after how many requests to change the proxy to a new one".

Link to post

I'm having an issue with the step:

3. Set up the database. Run the contents of the AdKats Database Setup Script on your database, on the same schema stat logger uses. You can do this via PHPMyAdmin or through a client such as MySQL Workbench

 

Details:

I'm using Nitrado to host my gameserver (BF4) and I have XpKillers stat logger running flawlessly as of yesterday

Note: Procon, adkats, and xp's logger are all running the latest versions as the server is only 5 days old.
PHPMyAdmin: Server version: 10.4.19-MariaDB

 

Issue:

I have the AdKats script setup in MySQL Workbench and when I attempt to run the script in the same schema as stat logger I get the below error:
Action: CREATE SCHEMA IF NON EXISTS 'Nitrado_DB'
Message: Error Code: 1044 Access denied for user 'Nitrado_DB'@% to database 'Nitrado_DB'

 

 

I'm not very good at this but from what I've read online the issue could be tied to my database as it displays: Server connection: SSL is not being used.

Does anyone have suggestions on what to do or what I'm missing? 

 

Thanks in advance!

I suggest that you use a proxy that performs a round robin cycling for each request. (E.g. brightdata.com)

The proxy module is meant for those proxies.

That's called a round robin feature and we won't add that to AdKats because that's not it's job to do. That would be more development work than that's needed.

You're trying to a create a database where you don't have access to do. That's a permission problem at Nitrado that you'll need to solve.

Hello,

AdKats has been running stable for about 30 minutes

This issue was probably caused because MySQL Workbench was using a non-SSL connection. I learned how to run the script on phpmyadmin and I got an http time out error 504.

When I looked at the tables later in the plugin settings I realized that more AdKats tables appeared 

Thanks

4NetPlayers where my BF4 server is hosted is giving the same error - I just enabled AdKats the other day and told them about there host not connecting correctly to GitHub as shown in a responses above.

They have confirmed it should work and now have taking AdKats off there add-on lists :(

We have removed the plugin from our program for now. The error message more or less says that a connection with the remote host was not possible and therefore the weapons could not be loaded. 
A connection to both hosts is possible at any time, so we assume for now that the plugin is not working correctly. We are looking into this, but can't be sure when the plugin will be available again.

 

Annoying indeed

    • 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.

    • 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
