#30822 Omnibot connecting issue

Posted by JohnDory on 16 May 2021 - 08:55 AM

haven't seen it for quite awhile but when we did it was to do with the redirect and peoples connection to it, also people got stuck downloading from the server.

we've got nq and silent on our servers at the moment but it happened on both in the past, working fine now.

#23866 XP Save configuration

Posted by JohnDory on 08 June 2017 - 10:15 PM

in your start up line you need

+set fs_homepath "silent"

your xp save files are in the database directory, in our case this is in our et install directory server/silent/database and is set in your silent.cfg file

// Shrubbot and Database
set g_dbDirectory "database"

once you get the shrubbot working your xpsave will work as they use the same directory.

for doing rcon commands we find it easier to use rcon unlimited

when you do a command in that you should a result strasight away, to check another way check in the console, the server log will show where its trying to save the xp to or will show an error saving it.

yes, you've not got your paths set correctly.

when your in game and you do


in console do you get any response ? if not you need to check the paths to silent directory, shrubbot commands and xpsave can have the same problems.

#20242 bots do not reset xp

sorry I don't know what else to suggest other than a re-install and check everything is working before you re-install the bots and then see how you get on.

#19819 !ban ?

If he is staying with the same ISP and there is no one else using the same one you can use !subnetban  to keep him away

#19733 run/stamina settings

Posted by JohnDory on 03 October 2015 - 01:23 PM

as I see it 1.0 is normal stamina recharge rate, below this it is slower and the lower the number the slower it is with 0.0 being no recharge, above 1.0 recharges faster than normal and increasing this number makes the recharge faster.

#18323 zeus2vs2 crashed today

Posted by JohnDory on 28 May 2015 - 02:06 PM

one of our bot men is looking in to it, not sure what's wrong though as it works running et as ominbot and etmain, it just seems not to like silent at the moment.

#18192 single or duel pistols ?

Posted by JohnDory on 10 May 2015 - 10:50 AM

For the last couple of weeks we have found that when you start playing on either side even with 4 stars for shooting, you only start with 1 pistol not


Once you have realised and gone to the limbo menu to select it, you have two again after re-spawning.

the only problem is if you switch class it can happen again, it also happens if you swap teams.

Any one else seen this happen ?

The first place to look is here and come back if you have any problems.

But your question ?  both.

#14677 OPTIONS-SYSTEM- new screen resolutions

Posted by JohnDory on 14 May 2014 - 12:04 PM

When I say "beginner", I talk about someone who never played IDsoftware games, even don't know to open the console.


That is the point of this, it is not a command to use in game, once they have been on a server with silent running on it they have the silent directory on their computer, only then can you make any alterations to the run line in the game icon used for starting the game.


If you use this and normally play nq or etpro this start up is not for you.


Cheating ? it is to do with which mod you play, on our main server it is silent with this startup when the game runs it loads silent mod and in this we have altered the in game main menu to add a servers option that displays all our servers and you just click to join the one you want. If you wanted to do that you would have to alter the in game menu to suit your servers.

What could be easier for someone who doesn't know the game, we have people who do not and wont learn how to do stuff with their PC's they just want to shot, the easier we can make to join our servers the better.

#14076 Map rotation.

Posted by JohnDory on 23 March 2014 - 04:37 PM

 i do !nextmap nothing happens. Only yellow writing ***Loading nextcampaign*** but after that nothing happens.

when it does that it cannot find either the campaign file to run but mostly it cannot find the next map on the server.
