SEC2 2.0.4 + Server Update

Final Update: We have included the latest versions in the download section. Currently Beta 2 and 3 for Linux and Windows. We will just continue uploading the latest dev versions, but they are stable enough for use and include patches for latest hacks availables; we focus on the more damaging ones, like Crash, immortal and invisible players. Check them periodically.

Update 2: Windows version updated to 2.0.5 Alpha 3; fixing more false positives and adding detection of more hack events.

Update: Windows version updated to 2.0.5 Alpha 2; fixing false positives and adding a couple extra features under test.

Server admins should unban DAMAGE_PLAYER_HACK detections caused by a bug int the previous 2.0.5. Alpha 1 testing version. (sorry, my fault).


We are happy to announce the inmediate availability of the SEC2 2.0.4 and 2.0.5 update for FEAR Combat Dedicated Servers.
There are open beta testing versions, so we encourage server admins to keep an eye on their servers and report issues.

  • Recent changes:
    • Several Hack detection features.
    • Sound spam.
    • Vote type spam
    • Weapon Spawn (Can cause false positives for connections losing packets).
    • Kill Player Hack.
    • Immortal Players
    • Ban other players
    • Go Into Invalid Team
    • Crash all other players
    • Vote Kick players on any Team
    • Others.

Some features may not be available in Linux version. We should release an update for It in the next days.

We want to let you all know we continue the development of the antihack support of SEC2, as long as new features (Some, are related to mod support!).

Also, @Holland released a IPBan tool, perfect to deal with crashers and persistent hackers.

You can find these in the downloads section of the site (Registered users only).

3on3 TDM Tournament Pre-register Open

We have had to wait a lot to get a new tournament, but here Is It.
We are opening a pre-register forum post to know how many teams will get In, we need minimum 8 teams to make It work, but I expect to get more, maybe 16. Each clan can get as much teams as they want, the only limitation is they need to have registered users in fear-community.org; the rules and dates will be discussed in the forums.

So please register your team in this post!

UPDATE: WE COMPLETED 20 TEAMS! We will post more info as soon as It’s available; you can follow the current discussions in the forums.

SEC2 Beta 7.1 Is out, please read!

I just mailed SEC2 Beta 7.1 to all serveradmins that have requested It in the past. If you didn’t get It, please use the contact form so I can mail It to you.

This is a critical update, since It’s free of all GameSpy Services. As you maybe already know, GameSpy killed all their FEAR services, blocking us from running servers and from authenticate CDKeys (Old CDKeys and starting today, SEC2 keys too).

So we had to make a choice: to stay with the GameSpy auth process as Is, without know when It will stop working 100%, or move a step forward and remove all GameSpy features, INCLUDING THE OLD CDKEYS.

Of course this was a hard decision and we know some won’t be happy with It, but currently most of the remaining FEAR Players with old CDKeys are not so noob players that know FEAR-Community, and even have an account here, If not, the server will kick em with a message about getting a new CDKey at fear-community.org So It shouldn’t be a problem.

We are open to your comments and suggestions, help us to move to a game 100% community driven, this is the last step, without Sierra, Activision, WBGames and GameSpy.
