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).

 

Windows Dedicated Server Logging

Okay, this is a feature that some of you server admins have been asking about for quite awhile.  I did some digging and it turns out that the FEAR Windows Dedicated Server does support logging to a text file by just adding a few additional command line parameters.

Here is how it works:

FEARServer.exe +errorlog 1 +alwaysflushlog 1 +errorlogfile fearserver.log

The log file will be saved into the same directory as FEARServer.exe (i.e. your install directory).

Please note that the log file will be overwritten if you restart the server and use the same log file name, so I recommend including a timestamp in the filename.

e.g.

LaunchServer.bat:

@ECHO OFF

set LOGF=%DATE:/=%.%TIME::=%
set LOGF=fearserver.%LOGF%.log
start fearserver.exe +errorlog 1 +alwaysflushlog 1 +errorlogfile “%LOGF%”

For some extra features check the help secion:

Enjoy!
