  2. Hi I said before that I would try to help diagnose why the server is crashing on map changes and to be more scientific about it. I wrote a little utility that monitors the PR server as if it was a public game client and reports information such as date, map name, map size and player count. You can find a VS solution in the attached zip, along with a built executable. It requires .NET framework 4.0 and has predefined IP / port for VG PR server. It will log information into prpinger.log file in executable's working directory in CSV format that can be imported into Excel to do analysis / draw charts. It should also help you identify player count over the day and which maps kill server populations. Best regards, Xena PRPinger.zip
  3. Today
  4. Server password : melons Alright, did a little diggin and the issue is only related to those 3 maps in question (Yeee what are the odds). As the event got cancelled last week due to pr updates and now because of faulty maps, I decided to run the event anyways as promised, but with a different mission that I threw together today. Thank you Semler for fixing the server settings. The theme is the same as the campaign goes. Be noted that I threw it together today and havent had much time to test it, so there could be some minor bugs with the AI or it could be super easy and end really fast. The mission is meant to be played on small scale (21 players + CO on Bluefor & 2 on OPFOR max) Download : LINK Install Instructions:1) Download the file 2)locate your PR levels directory, (default is C:\Program Files (x86)\Project Reality\Project Reality BF2\mods\pr\levels) 3) Extract the downloaded zip file into pr\levels using winzip, winrar, 7zip etc.4) Run PR 5) Create a local coop game and check that the event maps are in your maplist 6)If they are you're good to go for the event Info & Rules : 1. BLUEFOR is not allowed to go / camp on the hills 2. The objective is not to capture the flags, but to locate intel. Flag capture time has been increased to 20min neutral + 20minute capture 3. All units will have supressed rifles, binos and extra field dressings. ATs, grenades, c4 and grenade launchers are unavailable, some units carry ammobags instead of their usual armamaent. 4. FOBs are disabled and there are no supply grates. Only way to respawn is to use rallypoints or wait for the boats to respawn at the deployment. 5. Alarm will be triggered once a non silenced weapon fires or grenade explodes. Once the alarm is given, expect enemy reinforcements from the barracks down south. Expect enemy armored support and air patrols to be deployed! 6. Once piece of intel is found, the info about it must be relayed to me, either via TS or on allchat ingame. the info should include : What was found & where. (map grid) 7. Additional objectives may be given throughout the mission. Look for notices on the top of your screen. (relayed to commander instead if one is present) Dovre Recon US Special Forces are sent to town, captured by the Russians during their assault, to recover as much intel as they can. Teams will be deployed from the north via boats. Once landed, they must move through the area and search for any pieces of intel they can find (maps, radios, laptops).
  5. Very cool weapon!! And awesome post, man! Love the pics at the bottom
  6. The event was cancelled so you missed nothing. Keep a look out for the next event date.
  7. Connor don't worry about it, stuff happens in real life man all the time. The great thing is that we're always going to be here. I hope all is well and you get everything squared away! Cheers, M8

  10. Hi everyone! I would like to make an apology due to the 2 previous events that i had said i could turn up to but didn't. I really wanted to be apart of them but there was some issues, such as family problems and that i was so caught up in studying for my exams that i completely forgot about the event, and i'm so sorry to any problems this could have caused for me not being there. Thanks, Connor.
  11. Q: What is this again? A: Is about the one and only "Beast" of automatic cannon, the 30mm Shipunov 2A42-! Q: Is that also available in PR? A: Hell YES! Basically as main platform turret of BMP-2, BMP-3 and also in gunner seats in Russian-made Attack Choppers, Mil Mi-28 'Havoc' The 30 mm automatic cannon 2A42, also known as the Shipunov 2A42, is a Soviet/Russian 30 mm automatic cannon. It is built by the Tulamashzavod Joint Stock Company. - Teh Design: The 30 mm 2A42 cannon has a dual feed. One is for HE-T and the other for AP-T rounds. The gunner can select one of two rates of full automatic fire, low at 200 to 300 rds/min and high at 550 to 800 rds/min. According to the manufacturer, effective range when engaging ground targets such as light armoured vehicles is 1,500 m while soft-skinned targets can be engaged out to 4,000 m. Air targets can be engaged flying at low altitudes of up to 2,000 m at subsonic speeds and up to a slant range of 2,500 m. In addition to being installed in a two-person turret on the BMP-2 mechanised infantry combat vehicle, this gun is also fitted in the BMD-2 airborne combat vehicle, BMD-3 airborne combat vehicle and BTR-90 (or GAZ-5923) 8×8 armoured personnel carrier. A small number of these have now entered service. More recently, the 30 mm 2A42 cannon has been installed in a new turret and fitted onto the roof of the BTR-T heavy armoured personnel carrier based on a modified T-54/T-55 MBT chassis. The cannon is also the main armament of BMPT (Tank Support Fighting Vehicle). It is also used for various armament projects from various manufacturers. The design bureau for the 30 mm 2A42 cannon is the KBP Instrument Design Bureau. The 2A42 autocannon has also been used on the Bumerang-BM, an unmanned remote control turret on the Kurganets-25 and T-15 Armata. - Teh Ammunition: The 2A42 fires 30x165 ammunition, a cartridge introduced in the 1970s in the Soviet Union to replace previous 30 mm autocannon cartridges. Other weapons using this size of cartridge case include the 2A38 and 2A72 autocannons for various vehicle, helicopter and air defence applications, as well as numerous single-, dual- and six-barrel naval and air force cannons. The 2A42, 2A38 and 2A72 fire percussion-primed ammunition; the naval and aerial cannons use electrical priming, and therefore their ammunition is not interchangeable with the land-based ammunition types, despite the same cartridge case size. Originally three basic types of ammunition were developed in the Soviet Union for the land-based weapons: high-explosive incendiary, high-explosive fragmentation with tracer, and an armour-piercing ballistic capped with tracer. Later a sub-caliber armour-piercing round was introduced, and today also countries other than Soviet Union/Russia manufacture 30 x 165 percussion-primed ammunition. The main types of ammunition are: - 3UOF8 HEI ( High Explosive Incendiary ) - 3UOR6 HE-T ( High Explosive - Tracer ) - 3UBR6 APBC-T ( Armor Piercing Ballistic Capped - Tracer ) - 3UBR8 APDS ( Armor Piercing Discharging Sabot ) - Teh Platforms: The autocannon has been used since the 1980s on the following platforms: *Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV): - BM-2T Stalker (Belarusian-made BMP) - BMP-2 - BMP-3 - BMD-2 (Airborne Version of BMP-2) - BMD-3 (Airborne Version of BMP-3) - BTR-80A - BTR-82A - BTR-90 (Russian BTR-80 replacement who's never showed up in-game, in BF2 does) - BTR-T (Russian T-55 Tank based Heavy IFV) - BMPT 'Terminator' (Russian T-72 Tank based Armored Fighting Vehicle, being abandoned in favor of Armata Universal Combat Platform project) - Fahd 280-30 (Egyptian-made IFV based on original Fahd 4x4 APC) - MT-LB 6MB - Boragh (Iranian Upgraded version of Chinese Type 86 IFV) - T-15 Armata (Next-generation of Russian Heavy IFV, part of Armata Universal Combat Platform project) - Kurganets-25 (Next-generation of Russian APC, a lighter version of T-15 Armata, this is also part of the project) - Lazar 3 (Serbian-made AFV/MRAV, from Lazar armored vehicles family) *Attack Helicopters: - Mil Mi-28 'Havoc' - Kamov Ka-50 'Black Shark' - Kamov Ka-52 'Alligator' - Kamov Ka-29 'Helix-A' - Similar 30 mm Autocannons: The 2A72 30mm autocannon, designed by KBP Instrument Design Bureau, is a lighter, less complex cousin of the 2A42. While the latter has 578 parts, 2A72 has only 349 parts, allowing it to weigh only 84 kg.Its rate of fire is 400 rd/min. The 2A38 is a 30mm twin-barrel autocannon. It is mainly used on air defense vehicles like 2K22 Tunguska and Pantsir-S1. It weighs 195 kg and has a maximum rate of fire of 2500 rd/min. - Teh Specifications and Variants: Type Autocannon Place of origin Soviet Union Service history In service 1980 Used by Russia Production history Designer KBP Designed 1970s Manufacturer Tula Machine-Building Plant Produced 1980 Variants 2А72 Specifications Weight 115 kilograms (254 lb) Length 3.027 m (9 ft 11.2 in) Barrel length 2,416 millimetres (95.1 in)[1] Cartridge 30 × 165 Caliber 30 mm Barrels 1 Action Gas-operated Rate of fire 200 to 300 rds/min (low) 550 rds/min (high)[2] Effective firing range 4,000 metres (4,400 yd) Feed system Twin feed - Barrels: 1 - Length: 3,027 mm - Weight: 115 kg - Effective range - Light armor: 1,500 m - Air targets: 2,000 m - Ground: 4,000 m - Type: Twin feed, gas operated mechanism - Calibre: 30 × 165 mm - Ammunition: APDS, AP-T, HE, HEI, HE-T, HETP-T, TP - Variants: 2A42, 2A72, ABM M30-M3 (Modern platform made in Sevastopol Impuls 2, for Uran-9 or different armored vehicles) and also Cobra (overhead-mount modular one-man operated turret version of 2A42, explained here) Hope that helps someone who doesn't really familiar with the guns in PR.

  13. Yesterday
  14. Sorry guys, this event will be cancelled and we will move on to the next part. too many issues with the maps in question and I cant be bothered to spend another day trying to fix them. I don't know what's the issue with the maps, yamalia only works for me, crashes for other people who tested, saaremaa and iron works fine on local, but gives file verification error when launched on the server. Going to post info on Part V once I figure out whats causing the errors and if it affects other maps aswell.
  15. Last week
  16. In my opinion, he would fit into an admin job, must not be a full admin but light admins are always welcome. Sidenote: I know him better as some guys i voted YES for. That is a good point from Zzang. I mentioned in your (Seekin) last disruptive player report that we need people who are NICE admins with good repuation. I suggest, lets wait a bit more time, for my =VG= mates to get trust in you. You already have mine but seems to ....... ah, lets wait the next polls.
  17. Well I shall keep an eye out as if you suitable for admin on our server, I ask other admins to do the same. I already saw you where active on our teamspeak so that's good as it is one of the requirements. Please report any issues on our forum, ingame and/or teamspeak so these can be dealt with asap. Like I and the others said we rarly have and accept self made applications for staff. We are always looking in expanding our staff but we do not really support the idea of selfapplying, this as it is easyer for us to nominate people ourself (quality and not quantity). Anyway have fun playing our server and see you next time.
  18. There is never "Oh my gawd we have too many admins! What are we going to do naw!!! " moment in the server. Admins, just like any other people, are playing the game and sometimes we can all get distracted when something happens. Also, as you said in the original application, we have lack of adequate amount of admins present in the server when everyone in North America goes to sleep 'cause who cares about people outside the BEST country on Earth, so you will never hear us saying "Oh thanks for the application but we already have enough admins so come back later! " Now, for the record, "everyone" can fill out an application to become an admin. That doesn't mean everyone's going to get one, however.
  19. Well the reason why I said that you can delete the post was because I thought that you may not like me posting this sort of thing to the Public as it may cause others to do the same or something. No change in my request Thanks 1st Lieutenant SeekinAssassin. Administrator of Greystone International and Officer of Able Company.
  20. As Double_13 mentioned, we have a rather extensive process which regular players and PR admins observe a player's behavior and pattern while being on the server before contacting them to see if they want to try becoming an admin. Even if we like the person because he/she behaved well and would like to become an admin, we still ask them go through a probation period where we only grant them a light admin role and see if they can control their emotions and stay rational when tensions rise and personal feelings are involved. We had a serveral "incidents" where VG had to remove someone from admin role because they would simply act like they're above the rules, and this process is a direct result of the unfortunate events we had to go through. We don't delete posts and threads just because we don't find it useful or necessary. Unless it contains a content that is generally considered "not for the public," we do keep everything the way it is. However, there is a possibility of the thread locking if someone starts adding unrelated contents that does not contribute to the original content. If you wish to delete your content because either you don't like our admin selection process or don't want to wait long for an admin role in VG, you may edit your original posting by overwriting your post and simply put [DELETED] on top of it. Please be aware, if you erase your original application, we will consider that as a statement that you're no longer interested in joining PR admin list and you will be withdrawn from the list of people we need to observe closely. Have a good day, and enjoy your stay. Cheers,
  21. I will look into this.
  22. Back from work and voracious to play. See you all in a few hours. :hi:

    1. =VG= m823us

      =ICE= InchPincherToo

      Been a while, my friend. Me too back from studying :P

  23. Go ahead and delete the thread if you want doesn't bother me at all.
  24. Admins get selected by other admins and put of for nomination within the PR admin section on our forum (hidden for non PR admins). I kindly suggest that you contact one of the PR admins to see if he's interessted in nominating you.
  25. Hello there chaps, I know that you have a different sort of system for this but: PR Username: 1Lt|SeekinAssassin Poke/message me for CD Hash. Experience: I am currently a Senior Administrator on the Deployment Server Free Candy Van. What I can bring to the team? Well someone who can fill in the time slot that you struggle to Admin in due to life things and potential Time Zones. So I am volunteering to take the role of an Admin of VG to help the team fulfil their goal and keep the server active and in straight with the rules. The server is also full of EU players during the time I play and some night owls from the US. Regards 1st Lieutenant SeekinAssassin. Admin of Greystone International and Officer of Able Company.
  26. Trees are all you will see before your precious vehicles fall under our guns! The Beast won't stand a chance.
  27. Good now I know who shall fall pray to the supreme power of the T-90's and BMP'S. Not that any of the inf would be spared, but its good to know who comes with premade coffins, saves us from chopping down the beautiful trees and potential cover form our new annexed land.
