A step in the right direction

I have a brand spanking new server that I have loaded silEnT onto.

 

The log confirms that silent is running and the server itself will stay up.

 

When I try to connect to the server I get the "awaiting gamestate", then the map loads and within a second or 2 the game crashes with the error in the title.

 

in my console I see many ui errors  (ex.  ERROR: ui/main.menu, line 146: unknown menu item keyword windowtitle  )

 

I can connect to another silEnT server with my same client install and it works fine. I had someone else connect and they had exactly the same issue, but can connect to other silent mod servers without issue.

 

Looking at the server log there is nothing logged except my connecting, and then the clientdisconnect..

 

Any ideas?   I've googled like crazy, but not found anything that helped.

 

Thanks

Sounds like it could be a pk3 problem. Did you install by unzipping the silent zip as in the wiki? Make sure you only have silent-0.8.2.pk3 file in the silent directory. Make sure you have the official pak0.pk3 in the etmain directory, the rest (1, 2) don't have anything that is necessary for a dedicated server. If you have mp_bin.pk3 in the etmain directory, you can try removing it. It probably doesn't matter, but that one holds the etmain binaries which are not needed for a silent server.

 

 

ERROR: ui/main.menu, line 146: unknown menu item keyword windowtitle

This indicates that your client is using etmain (or some other mod) binaries to open silent menu files. Silent menus use few new keywords for the theming that don't exist in other mods.

A step in the right direction

I believe I have installed it correctly per the directions.  I am attaching some screen shots of the directory structure and contents on the server.

 

This is the command line to start the server.

Parameters: +set net_ip 108.61.125.67 +set net_port 27960 +set fs_homepath /usr/local/games/et/1195692/108.61.125.67:27960/ +set fs_basepath /usr/local/games/et/1195692/108.61.125.67:27960/ +set sv_maxclients 16 +set com_hunkmegs 256 +set fs_game silent +exec server.cfg

here's an excerpt from the server log.

It was late last night so I didn't realize your actual error message was

CG_ParseSkyBox: error parsing skybox configstring

However, there is

/usr/local/games/et/1195692/108.61.125.67:27960//silent-0.8.2.pk3 (528 files)

missing from the search path. I see your screenshots you have it in place but I would investigate why it isn't found. The command line looks fine, maybe there is some read permissions problem?

A step in the right direction

So, Gaoesa, are you saying that the silent pk3 should be next to et and etded?  or should it be in the silent folder?

 

I changed permissions on the pk3 (was 644, I changed to 777).  I also changed permissions on the silent folder (was 755, I changed to 777).

 

I put the silent pk3 next to et and etded.  Stopped and restarted the server.  looked at the log.. still silent pk3 not in the search path.

 

I put the silent pk3 in the silent folder.  stopped and restarted the server.  looked at the log.  and still silent pk3 not in the search path.

 

I'm going out of town for a few days, but a cohort may be able to step in and help.  If not, I'll be back Friday.

 

Thanks for the help so far!  We'll get it eventually  :)

No the silent pk3 was in the right place. For some reason the engine wasn't reading it. That is what is puzzling about this. Maybe the file is corrupted somehow. It should be a regular ".zip" file but with a changed file ending to ".pk3". You could try to manually unzip it and see if that gives errors.

Should the start line read

 

Parameters: +set net_ip 108.61.125.67 +set net_port 27960 +set fs_homepath /usr/local/games/et/1195692/108.61.125.67:27960 +set fs_basepath /usr/local/games/et/1195692/108.61.125.67:27960 +set sv_maxclients 16 +set com_hunkmegs 256 +set fs_game silent +exec server.cfg

 

Basically losing the last slash on basepath and home path. 

 

I use windows not Linux so not sure if it would be different.

not that it should make a difference or anything but isn't silents default server cfg name silent.cfg?

On the road to fame

If the server is with gameservers, good luck. There support staff is jack ass and doesn't know anything about ET which makes it hard to fix any issues.  I also have 2 server with them and it's pain in da butt to deal with them. I wish you good luck dealing with those tards. I have my fair share with them. 

 

They have locked all their files so you can't check anything yourself but I believe something is wrong with command line parameters. Tell them to check there GAME_HOME parameter. That's what it used to be in there old start up lines. 

 

Do this:

 

1. Stop server first and then start.

2. Wait for 3 mins and then download screenlog.0 file

3. Open it and post first 100 lines here or PM it to me and we will get you going.

 

I think your config is not getting executed OR map rotation file is not getting executed. 

 

Also Petbark is on spot. Ask them to remove trailing slash in command line for home path and base path. 

 

This is what mine looks like:

AppDir: /usr/local/games/et/xxxxx/216.155.146.19:27960

 Parameters: +set fs_game silent +set net_ip 216.155.146.19 +set com_hunkmegs 256 +set fs_homepath /usr/local/games/et/xxxxxx/216.155.146.19:27960 +set fs_basepath /usr/local/games/et/xxxxxx/216.155.146.19:27960 +set sv_maxclients 30 +exec xxxxx.cfg +set sv_autoUpdate 0 +set sv_enableAuthServer 0

Thanks everyone for your replies.  To close out this thread, it turns out that the silent pk3 was corrupt.  After a new copy was put up the server worked like a charm.   Thanks!
