Title: A PROBLEM WITH VOTEBAN
Post by: The Watcher on June 13, 2018, 02:53:22 PM
Since the voteban system was installed on the 24/7 office and 24/7 dust servers something weird started happpening. When we need only 1 vote to ban whatever player and we get that vote.. the server crashes. It doesn't happen all the time but happens frequently.
The server 24/7 office just crashed a few minutes ago when we needed 1 vote to ban the player |Brazuca| AluirsOn.

I don't know if you guys are aware of that.. so i'll just leave this post.

~Regards.

Does this happen every time you place a single voteban?

Not actually. It happens in the last vote needed with any player.

I recorded a demo where it crashes at the end.. here: http://forums.hideoutgaming.com/index.php?topic=19159.msg177174;topicseen#new

I'm going to be looking into fixing this asap.

To be clear, every time any player is vote banned, the server crashes at the last vote?

I just need to be able to replicate the problem to ensure it gets fixed. It appears to be related to mani's ip banning system.

Alright.... The server crashes immediately as any player gives the last vote, and no ban seems to happen.. I came to this conclusion because 1º The server doesn't even show the message that the hacker has been banned before crashing and 2º Some of them came back as soon as the server restarted.

One more info: As far as I remember it takes seconds for the server to come back up again.

And no, it doesn't happen every time. The way I see it.. There is a 50% or higher chance of it happening.
As I said, not every time but it happens frequently and also the server doesn't need to be full for this glitch to happen.
