Our Gameserver hosts have moved our COD4 gameserver to a more updated system, so we have been given a new IP Address for our server.

Our Stats have gone (apologies for that) but I'm sure you guys will enjoy a fresh start.

New IP is 216.119.155.85:28960

Lately, on our Sandstorm Gameserver, we have been having a problem when a map ends and a new one starts.  At this point (Sometimes) it will hang and then come and say DEFEAT!  It tends to skip maps.

To battle against this bug (which apparently a lot of servers have too) I have added the 'MAP VOTE' after every round.  It still skips now and again but it just starts the map vote procedure again which is less hassle.

I have also added FRIENDLY FIRE from now on.  This is set to auto punt after 3 team kills.  I can set it lower or higher as needed.


Thanks for reading,

Megaboost.

PostForum: TECH TIPS & TOOLS Posted: Sat May 08, 2021 8:35 pm Subject: Using System File Checker in Windows 10
System File Checker is a utility in Windows 10 that checks for problems with files on your computer.

To run it, follow these steps:


    *** Make sure you've installed the latest updates for Windows 10, and then restart your machine ***

  • In the search box on the taskbar, type Command Prompt, and right-click or press and hold Command Prompt (Desktop app) from the list of results. Select Run as administrator, and then select Yes.

  • Type DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (note the space before each "/"), and then press Enter. (Note: This step may take a few minutes to start and up to 30 minutes to complete.)

  • After you see a message that says "The operation completed successfully," type sfc /scannow (note the space between "sfc" and "/") and press Enter.

  • After you see a message that says, "Verification 100% complete," type exit.

Thankfully! someone listened to the call of the Server Admins (Finally!) and added a motd (Message of the Day) option.

This is just a piece of text that will show up when loading a map.  I have added ours Today.

New Weapons added: QBZ-97 (Security) and QTS-11 (Insurgents)

There are two new medium caliber assault rifles available for Rifleman, Demolitions, Commander, and Observer classes: the QBZ-97 for Insurgents at 3 supply points, and the QTS-11 for Security at 4 supply points.

QBZ-97

QTS-11

The QBZ-97 is an effective bullpup 5.56 caliber option for the Insurgent team at an affordable cost, putting rounds out a little faster than an AKM. The QTS-11 is an advanced special operations rifle with an integrated bolt-action grenade launcher, and fires flatter than an AUG A3 with its lower recoil and slower fire rate.

Removal of Competitive
With 1.9.1, we’ve decided to remove Competitive official ranked matchmaking from the Play menu. We understand that this change could be upsetting to our competitive players, but we feel this is what’s best for the game going forward. Competitive matchmaking suffered from extremely low player participation, with players often struggling to even find a match. This is especially a problem for us because it means new players who decide to try a competitive experience on boot up will essentially be stuck, confused, and annoyed. We need to ensure any new player in our community gets quick and easy access to much stronger experiences like those found in Versus, Co-op, or community servers. We want every gameplay experience in Sandstorm to meet a certain standard, and Competitive was not up to that standard.

For the next two weeks our regular limited time playlist will be a modified version of Competitive Firefight. Modifications include normal Versus Firefight classes and normal supply costs for weapons and equipment. Other rules seen previously in Competitive Firefight like faster objective capture, shorter rounds, and 5 v 5 players are still the same.

Game Stats Improvements
We will be revamping the Stats section of the main menu to streamline the way we collect game statistics. New end of round screens have been implemented, and backend logic has been revamped to ensure XP and cosmetic rewards are correctly earned. As a part of this effort, the Weapons section will need to be removed in this update and reimplemented in a future update. Your game stats will still continue to be collected, however the UI to display the information will be missing temporarily. When we reimplement the Weapons and Achievements sections, all stats you have earned since before and after this update will still be seen. These sub menus just need to disappear for a little while as we rework our system, with no actual loss of data. We apologize for any inconvenience or disruption this may cause.

Here are the list of changes:
Replays are now found in Stats > History instead of Replays in the Main Menu
Improved end of round screen by adding match history and statistics at the end of every round


Gameplay Improvements
Added night equipment to the Firing Range


UI Improvements
Updated the Main Menu to improve the presentation of the 1.9 update
Improved the Result Screen when the round or match ends

Map Improvements

Bab
Fixed lighting issues on the map to remove shadows appearing and disappearing unexpectedly

Crossing
Fixed an issue where a wall and door was missing

Farmhouse
Fixed two areas players were unintentionally able to reach

Refinery
Fixed an issue where walls were not appearing near Objective A on Push Insurgents
Fixed an exploitable area REDACTED near REDACTED

Tell
Fixed an issue where players who attempted to vault at a specific location on Objective C would become stuck in or enter underneath the floor

Tideway
Fixed an issue where the fire and explosion effects of destroyed vehicles were not appearing

Fixed an issue where the Ordering Fire Support hint showed the keybind for Aim Binoculars as Unbound
Fixed an issue where the tactical map on Hideout does not align with the compass
Changed the respawn message on the UI in Checkpoint mode to “You will respawn when the next objective is secured” to clearly indicate that respawning will occur after the objective is secured after any counterattacks
Fixed a UI issue where the Night Vision Goggles point shooting was not displaying as active
Fixed an issue where the Crouch and Stand stances could be temporarily reversed
Fixed an issue where the communication wheel would be missing text when swapping from a Commander or Observer class

Fixed an issue where selecting a loadout preset would not make it the active loadout
Fixed an issue on night maps where the Loadout menu would show duplicated grey slots
Fixed an issue where the incorrect customization item would be incorrectly displayed on the Customization Menu
