Adding WallFly to a Q2 Server
« on: February 14, 2019, 02:44:49 PM »
WallFly is our Q2 server bot (somewhat similar to an IRC bot.) It allows players to hop between participating servers (via the GOTO command) as well as to broadcast invites requesting other players join the server where they are playing.

If you'd like to add WallFly, your server will need to run the q2admin mod. (In particular, the "say_person" command must be enabled. This is done within the q2admin.txt config file: say_person_enable "Yes")

The q2admin version we use on our own servers is here: http://tastyspleen.net/~quake2/q2admin/

WallFly will also need to know:
  • A short "GOTO" name for your server. (E.g. "RAD-RAILS")
  • A short description of your server. (E.g. "RAD Clan InstaGib - Canada")
  • Your server's IP address and port. (IP should be static.)
  • Your server's rcon password. (Kept strictly confidential, obviously.)

These details may be sent via private message to this forum Admin account.

Easy: The server owner should contact me with a removal request, supplying the same information they provided when they requested WallFly be added to the server.

That is, send me a private message with the server's IP/port/rcon so I can verify they are the owner. (This is the same information they would have provided when adding WallFly originally.)

(Of course, if they are in a hurry, they can also just ban WallFly's IP. But I would appreciate being contacted with the details above, so I can remove the node on this end as well.)

What servers? I am thinking these are mostly Claire's PacketFlinger servers, from what I see in q2servers.com (goto pf-tdm-uk, goto pf-tdm-nl2).   

The wallfly system provides a way to see activity on q2 servers worlwide and move between them w/o knowing an ip address. Why would you want to get rid of it?  Wallfly is set to use minimal bandwidth and you can just ignore that ghost player.

If by "benefit of the doubt" you mean giving lrcon, then you're correct to have noticed that is something I'm not comfortable with.

However, I will be looking into modifying WallFly to add global name-ban protection.

is it possible to have a players name be exclusive to an ip?

There it is, what I was reading between the lines; my righteous indignation needs to be tempered.
I'm not spotless so you won't give me the benefit of the doubt, not even now.

Considering your prior history with name-spoofing, I should think your newfound righteous indignation might be tempered somewhat.

In any case, I suppose the name-ban system could benefit from having a mode that applies globally.

I have to put up with this untill he gets bored? That isn't going to teach him anything. This is new to me and I've been here for awhile. There's hardly any supervision while I'm playing which is very frustrating. Is there a problem with me having temp lrcon just for the purpose of kicking the spoof
