Creamy's Not QuakeCon LAN Party
« on: August 11, 2017, 08:28:48 AM »

> Long story short, I was registering for the QuakeCon's BYOC event this year along with two other people right when the registration opened, but I was the only one who was able to get a ticket. Not willing to go to the QuakeCon alone for an eighth time in a row, I sold my ticket on the QuakeCon forums. Given this unfortunate turn of events, we decided to start our own LAN party in the basement of my house, where we would, amongst other things, play on one of Tastyspleen servers. We've decided to hold the party on the 26th (Saturday) of this month (August), which is the same weekend as the QuakeCon. Since you guys obviously can't make it to my house, I figure that you can do the next best thing by joining us on one of TastySpleen's larger servers. Vanilla and Pygmy seem like good choices, since they have a frag limit of 32 instead of the usual 16, but I haven't decided on which one we'll play on yet.

Sounds cool. We've never had enough straight up vanilla FFA events around here. I remember when EoM was still going, we used to do a casual FFA open invite gettogether every Friday night on the EoM server. EoM servers still up and running, and I think I still have the rcon password (dunno if I still have the FTP password for modifying the map rotation files etc). But you could probably use the EoM server if you wanted an event separate from the vanilla and dm servers. I was actually thinking about "stealing" back the EoM name and restarting that clan just a casual friendly BTF-ish kinda thing. EoMProcessor probably isn't gonna come back and object to it. He'd be in his 60's or 70's by now anyway. (or dead :-[) We all know I was the only worth-a-fuck leader that clan ever had anyway.

I'd love to join this event (we'll have company over on the 26th) but in any case, please remind me beforehand, so we can adjust the restrictions on number-of-connections allowed from a single IP. (There are some anti-flood measures in place by default that might limit the number of connections from a given IP.)

Hope your event is a success!

@|iR|Focalor

> I'm not sure what EoM is, but if that server has at least 32 slots and no limit to the number of connections from a single IP address, it would be perfect for the party. I just hope we can get a lot of Tastyspleen regulars to join us.

> I've noticed that restriction on DM before. My nephews were visiting for Thanksgiving, and all three were playing on the server. However, when I tried to join them, I was locked out because of the limit. It would be very interesting to have about a dozen of us playing at once on Vanilla, as this is something I've never done before. I don't yet know if we'll play on Vanilla or EoM, but if it's Vanilla, I'll be sure to let you know before we start playing.

Should be good to go.

@Quadz

> Thanks for raising the connection limit for the night. We had about ten people playing on Vanilla at the same time, and most of us were in the basement. However, we ran out of computer stations, so I had to play upstairs on my main computer. I would also like to thank everyone who came to our house to play, as well as Hazard, EDM, and whoever else joined us online. The party had a few snags at the beginning, but was still the most fun I've had in a while.

That sucks... maybe (probably) that same person that loves to join the DM server with his script/bot (was going by equate last I saw).

Yes it's a DoS attack

Might be a Denial of Service attack of some sort. Something is making the DM server take 100% CPU. (Will investigate when I can, at work right now.) Restarting DM server didn't help.

netgraph looks pretty normal from what I can tell too. I've taken a number of screenshots with it up - not sure if that's helpful or not.

It looks like we're having a LAN party wherever the server is located. Pings are like in the low single digits for almost everyone. Even the people who normally ping in the upper 100s are showing pings of like 25ish. This is on DM anyway.
