Recent Issues


I would like to inform teams about one important issue that has come up. Broken braphics card drivers or libraries can cause you to have misbehaving snapshot function. Usually problem is that gamma changes or screen goes all black. It has happened atleast with Nvidia Geforce 7950 GX. One known solution is to disable anisotrophic filtering and anti-aliasing.

For the future, please make sure your snapshot function is working by typing snapshot in the game console beforehand or play games with forced snapshots turned on. If it breaks your ns in an official, your team will not be eligible for replay since the problem is client-side. In case the snapshots are black or otherwise disrupted, it might cause you to be suspended.

By: macpersil ( Team Two ) on 13/May/08 22:49
"deleted" ? or "overwritten" ?

By: Peacham ( Finland ) on 14/May/08 00:02

By: 360ms on 14/May/08 00:51
completely deleted from all memory it seems
By: atman on 14/May/08 00:55
is your ns directory read only? o_O
By: sherpa ( cisequaltothree ) on 14/May/08 03:11
how do you know this is down to a broken graphics card and not a problem with the old engine + 3rd part plugin + modern gfx card?

which part of the gfx card has to break for this to happen?

also- change the plugin spam when the round starts. it says something like "Changing rates will result in a kick" but it seems to kick for other client changes, too. Got booted out for raising fps_max from 111 to 125- had the plugin said "Changing client settings will result in a kick" then i'd have known not to change it.
By: jiriki ( old people ) on 14/May/08 03:17
Sherpa, yes, it can steam, hl, ns, gfx card, dx or graphics drivers but plugin has nothing to do with this, it just runs a client command. Same thing as doing it from the console yourself.

Okay I will change the message.
By: qin on 14/May/08 13:46
Plugin is all innocent!

Put some nasty things in the message, a joke or two.

By: macpersil ( Team Two ) on 14/May/08 17:15
it can't be "deleted from all memory"
In worst case they are overwritten.
Everything else you can restore!
By: 360ms on 14/May/08 18:10
Nope, they have been deleted completely, I think any remaining data involving the screenshots has been infected and would be unwise to tamper with

ensl plugin destroyed my life
By: Arj ( Ant ) on 14/May/08 18:36
fortunately, you are shit enough for nobody to make a fuss about it tom.
If mp would have had this problem he surely would be banned for supposed hacking. Seems like discrimination to me..
By: Android ( Snowrollers ) on 14/May/08 19:31
I have allways had the feeling that tom had whitewalls and shizzle... this aint helping ure case tom! ;)
By: Iots ( el'pheer ) on 14/May/08 21:49
citrus has proof that i used whitewalls
By: howdeh ( minions ) on 14/May/08 21:58
nice one Arj, you're one to tell people how bad they are. fuck off you trolling cunt.
By: Tweadle on 14/May/08 22:26
He's accusing us of discrimination based on what he "thinks" we would do. Awesome!
By: Admirable ( coolclan ) on 14/May/08 22:49
You're all guilty until proven innocent.
Fucking hackers!

By: howdeh ( minions ) on 15/May/08 00:38
I guess thats Arj, some faggot who doesn't even play NS, yet seems to feel though he has to judge and accuse people of things he'd have no fucking idea about.
By: 360ms on 15/May/08 02:06
Did he dick you howdeh? Lots of people getting dicked recently, I believe arj may be responsible!
By: Android ( Snowrollers ) on 15/May/08 03:41
I belive arj quit ns and have no idea how good tom really is... I mean last night i saw tom playing vs some bots and he had like 10-7... If thats not hacking then what is? *roll eyes*

By: 360ms on 15/May/08 05:47

By: Arj ( Ant ) on 15/May/08 11:59

He commonly uses the toilet before a match starts. Does that mean all toilets belong to him???
By: qin on 16/May/08 11:47
It means this particular habit belongs to him.
