Update Of CoD4 X 1.8 linux-i386 build 2000 Mar 28 2017 & B3
« on: March 29, 2017, 06:40:12 PM »
Hi All,

Since the update of "CoD4 X 1.8 linux-i386 build 2000 Mar 28 2017" B3 has ceased to be working properly.

The update again changed all GUID's of players. Admin nightmare.

B3 is running and server messages appear. There is no welcome message and no commands can be used. Nothing is getting recorded in echelon/database.

If anyone has any ideas to help a noob out it would be appreciated.

Another question.Regarding the CoD4x update and B3 ( I will post on their forum also)

The new GUID with the CoD4x update is 19 digits.The GUID in previous version of CoD4x was 32 digits.The stock game GUID was also 32 digits.

Does this have an effect on B3? Is this what is causing the problem? Hope someone can figure something out soon :-) ยจ

Try changing

_guidLength = 32

to

_guidLength = 19

in the parser file (cod4x.py I think)

Hi Bravo,

Yes did that initially and B3 was working again. In echelon though the GUID was in pink writing and was saying it was invalid.  Maps were crashing on the load screen for people and also they were getting kicked after a download. Never happened like that on my servers before.

Anyway in the end it was as simple as using editing in qconsole.cfg in main folder and setting legacy mode to "1"

Restarted server and B3. All guid's back to what they were and B3 running sweet as...can get straight in server without any crash or load screen errors.

I hope that works for others also if they are getting any behaviour like I had.

CoD4x 17.2 patch just released and all seems to be working fine again. No crashes and B3 all good.

GUID I left in Legacy mode so not sure if they have remained at 19 digits without that on.
