Small update to BRenBot 1.50 to fix issues with the new RenGuard network updates. Disconnected players will no longer be kicked immediately, but will instead be checked again in 15 seconds to see if they have reconnected. If they have not then they will be dealt with as a new player with no RenGuard, and can be forceRG'ed.

If the server is full RenGuard or they have been forced to use RenGuard and they have not reconnected after the 15 seconds they will be kicked from the server.




This update has NOT been extensively tested, and therefore I strongly recommended that you take a backup of your existing brenbot.exe file in the event that you need to revert to that version. If you have any problems with this new build please post them here.

Unfortunately I cannot provide a Linux version of 1.50 build 2 at this time.

Great job on getting this released but there may be problems.

Replaced my brenbot.exe with new file and now I have a problem.

Started up BR and it just sits there and then goes away.

Started it up in a cmd line.

Got this error:
Quote:

C:\Documents and Settings\username>C:\Westwood\RenegadeFDS5\Server\BRenBot\brenbot.exe
Warning: Unable to load presets from presets.brf
Error while reading commands.xml!
File does not exist: commands.xml at commands.pm line 29


Not sure if it correct or not but I can't seem to find a crash log.

You need to be in the working directory to start it. Do cd C:\Westwood\RenegadeFDS5\Server\BRenBot

and then do

brenbot.exe

Or just go to the directory itself and start it up?

This alteration has worked perfectly for me. I have not seen any mass kicks reported since I started running the fix.

Crimson, your running the 1.51 beta if I am not mistaken, this is the same fix but applied to the old 1.50 code.

Buggy: At this time I don't have a linux machine to compile this on, and the person who usually compiles these things only has the 1.51 source code.

Thanks for the tip Goz.

Here is what it said now:

Something seems to be wrong with bringing in the existing ladder files.

Apparently that module is indeed missing from the exe file, I have recompiled it and it's in there now so I don't know why perl decided not to bother putting it in.

Updated download;



(Can someone edit the first post to mention this as I can't edit it anymore, thanks)

Well that certainly got us farther. BR actually started up this time. Thank you Dan for working that bug out.

I did include a screen cpature though because there were some lines that looked less than perfect. Something to do with the ranks plugin.

Apparently an issue we had with the 1.51 beta has propagated back to this build. It's something to do with changes in the core perl files that handle XML files.

Put this exe in your BRenBot folder and run it and it should solve any XML problems. BRenBot is running fine already, it just cant load your plugins at the moment.

Time to bring this back to life.

So I ran that little appy you created and now BRenBot looks like what is in the attached screenshot.

Also I have noticed of late that our warnings plugin never loads. Did this plugin become no longer supported? Our clan eally likes the language filter and the auto_kb list function, we would like to see this feature re-instated if at all possible.

I made sure the plugin was the latest version and that it is turned on. If there is anywhere else to check on these plugins please let me know.

Look for the irc prefix option in warnings.xml and delete it. Its no longer needed anyway.

Nice quick reply.

Well I deleted those lines out of the XML file and the problem seems to persist.

1) I don't see the warnings plugin loading upon BR bootup
2) The same two Error messages are output

The error is telling you which line of the xml file its unhappy with, so check that there is nothing out of place on those lines

( serverrules.xml line 23 character 29, warnings.xml line 75 character 52 )

(NB: The serverrules plugin is no longer supported and its functionality is completely available through the custom_commands plugin instead )

I fixed it!

The errors were as follows

serverrules.xml line 23 character 29 Was:

<cvar name="C&C_Walls.mix" value="No Wall Jumping."/> 


changed to

<cvar name="C&amp;C_Walls.mix" value="No Wall Jumping."/>


warnings.xml line 75 character 52 Was:

<help value="Counts how many logs there are for <playername>, and returns the 5 most recent ones."/>


changed to

<help value="Counts how many logs there are for [playername], and returns the 5 most recent ones."/>


BR reports no more errors. The warnings and serverrules plugins work again.

AFAIK Danpaul is now finishing the new brenbot website and updating brenbloader, which is why it takes longer than expected.
