It doesn't report player pings at all.

If your using Procon, their is a high ping kick plugin.
I think instead of using game server to client pings, it uses Procon host to client pings somehow. Since Procon hosting is usually in the same area or at least in the same country.

Not everyone provides a ping since the plugin gets stopped at times by firewalls.

We play with it set at either 200 or 250. Initially it is set for 250, but if we notice spurts of lag, we drop it to 200.

nutz, the game does not report pings to admin tools. If you're not playing in the game, there's no way to see them. It would need to be approximated remotely.

Only thing I am aware of so far is a Procon plugin for Squad Enforcer.

Automatic Server Messages change request

Post by woowoo » Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:25 am

A request for a change on the Automatic Server Messages in the Easy Setup panel for BF3.

Today you have the option to run messages after a set time period (e.g. every 5 minutes) or after a certain amount of time after someone joins the server (e.g. 60 secs after join). What I really need is for the messages to rotate on a set schedule. For example a message every 5 minutes - message 1 @ 5 mins, message 2 - 5 minutes later, etc.

I have found that when I use the procon message spammer I see an uptick in server crashes. I can use the PB commands but am worried about using this as PB hasn't been rock solid on BF3. For reasons I can't explain, I have found that the messages from the NFO tool produces the most stable method of sending messages. I just need a cleaner way to do so.

Is this do-able? Thanks.

I've seen this request before and it's something that I would like to do, but I haven't yet had time to implement it.

It sounds like you want to run each message once an hour (For instance) with an offset in 5 minute increments.

Example:
Message 1, once an hour +0.
Message 2, once an hour +5
Message 3, once an hour +10

Is this what you mean?

Easiest way would be in a Procon plugin, but here is an example of what we used for other games that support punkbuster.

Code: Select all

pb_sv_task 1 900 say VISIT OUR FORUM AT AAQUACKS.COM 
pb_sv_task 2 900 say WELCOME TO .=QUACK=. CLAN SERVER 
pb_sv_task 100 900 say JOIN US ON TS3 
pb_sv_task 120 900 say LOADING INFO..... 
pb_sv_task 140 900 say Hostname: 74.201.57.251
pb_sv_task 150 900 say Port: 9988
pb_sv_task 160 900 say Password: quackspond 
pb_sv_task 200 900 say PLEASE FOLLOW OUR RULES 
pb_sv_task 210 900 say LOADING RULES..... 
pb_sv_task 230 900 say RESPECT CLAN MEMBERS 
pb_sv_task 240 900 say HACKERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED 
pb_sv_task 250 900 say NO USING KNOWN EXPLOITS 
pb_sv_task 260 900 say NO INTENTIONAL INCAPPING
pb_sv_task 270 900 say NO FOUL LANGUAGE PLEASE  
pb_sv_task 280 900 say CLAN MEMBERS HAVE PRIORITY 
pb_sv_task 290 900 say SERVER KICKS FOR 5 BLACK SS 
pb_sv_task 300 900 say BLACK SS CAN BE FIXED NOW
pb_sv_task 310 900 say WE MAY KICK FOR PINGS OVER 225
pb_sv_task 320 900 say PLAY NICE OR PLAY ELSEWHERE 
pb_sv_task 330 900 say DONATE AT AAQUACKS.COM 
pb_sv_task 340 900 say HELP KEEP OUR SERVER RUNNING 
pb_sv_task 350 900 say WE STREAMING TO PbBans
pb_sv_task 360 900 say WE STREAMING TO AON 
You add this to your pbsv.cfg
Copy some of the above lines, and adjust the time and the message.
First # is the number of secs from the time pb is restarted, that the message will first appear.
Second number is the number of seconds after it will continuously repeat.

eg: if you want 3 messages to appear 5 minutes apart, and to appear every 30 minutes.

Code: Select all

pb_sv_task 300 1800 say VISIT OUR FORUM AT AAQUACKS.COM 
pb_sv_task 600 1800 say WELCOME TO .=QUACK=. CLAN SERVER 
pb_sv_task 900 1800 say JOIN US ON TS3 
One you create your code and copy it into pbsv.cfg, save the file.
Then in the pb console, type "pb_sv_restart" to restart pb and load the new commands. (Or a server restart should do this too)

You can add a daemon to votekick?
that would be good because sometimes we do not have admin online and need to leave your computer on running procon only to enable this plugin

I was told it was a better idea to come here for this

We are looking at a yell command feature but not the ordinary one that runs every 5 minutes etc..

We are wondering if its possible to implement a feature that only displays the yell command once at the start of every new round.

Its good that players can notice it (once) but its obnoxious to have it repeating.

Thanks

FAST, have you also considered having it just shown to players after they join?

Yeah i guess what i mean is once they join and they see it and that is it. That would do.

Either or (or both) would work. Anything but a constant rotation.

You can have it shown to joiners in the current system :). It's an option for the message to have it as on_join+60, on_join+90, or another value.
