Friday Update: What we’re up to! July 26, 2013



  • Welcome to our Friday Update, where we tell things we’ve been working on and maybe, just maybe what’s to come!

    CU1 Patch 3 Beta 3: Our next beta patch has been released into the beta app! This one fixes the issues with customization, micro transactions and the broken issues on the EU beta servers. Patch notes can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16094

    Hacks/Cheats: New hack preventions have resulted in 40 bans in the past week. We are continuing to monitor the situation to ensure we are on top of everything in terms of hacking and cheating.

    If you encounter someone cheating and are 100% sure they are cheating, contact a server admin from the Steam group here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/chivmod
    If you aren’t able to get ahold of someone, then please make sure you have proof (videos, pictures, etc) along with their FULL Steam ID (not just their nickname) and then send all that info to kimiko@tornbanner.com

    RCon/Server Admins: We’ve been testing out RCon on the beta app and it’s been working out pretty well so far. With this in mind, server owners will be able to have different levels of admin support for their servers. I will be looking for dedicated people to help admin our official servers. More details to come later.

    Google+: As I finally learned how to make an actual group and not just the community group, I have made an official g+ group for Chivalry. If you are a part of the community group, please switch to the actual group as I will no longer make major updates there. https://plus.google.com/117580969435838532708

    And if you play on Australian servers you are most likely playing on one of the 27 games on net servers so if you see a hacker there don’t complain about it here or too the steam moderator groups go to http://www.games.on.net and send in a report with video evidence. Which will then be reviewed by 3 admins. Unless its blatantly obvious. Use the getplayerinfo command followed by part of their name and take a screenshot of that so we can get the right person.

    I say that just so oceanic players don’t complain to you for something you can’t fix. Games on net has about 75% of oceanic servers and 90% of the playerbase plays on them. You official servers have a ping of 140-150 so no one plays on them.

    Though nice to hear about anti-hack measures.



  • Thanks lemon ^^

    The cheating applies to any server because they can be added to the global ban list.

  • RCON finally!! Thank you!

    Can you elaborate on that a bit more? Is this going to be a web based rcon, like Killing Floor?

    In game rcon where you setup admin groups, like Source or ETQW?

    GUI based or type the commands via chat?

    Your own separate rcon software?

    In game scrolling message ability?

    Detailed game logs?

    Would be great if these fixes allowed for Big Brother Bot implementation. 8-)

    Great news, and very much appreciated.



  • Sweeet more hack prevention :) :P



  • Is R-Con some sort of Chivalry party? I want in.

    Those questions sound like a hacker that wants to know details so you can get around the system.

    I’m sure the hack prevention will come with a curiosity-detector which will ban him for being too curious, you needn’t worry.

    RCon has nothing to do with hack prevention :? It’s remote server administration.

    -_-" Of couuuurse ! Manual prevention… Pitiful. Maybe is would be a good time to stop playing novices and act like real devs by making a TRUE Anti-Hack software for your junk game ?


  • Mod

    Sooo happy to hear of implementation of Rcon.

    If you guys have put together a client (or adapted something like hlsw or procon) then great. If not though I hope you’ll publish the implementation list of rcon support so we can get working on our own clients asap :-)

    40 auto bans. Who send it was manual prevention. They have been doing manual prevention up to this point.

    We have a generic remote console implementation with no custom client. We’ve written a parser for BigBrotherBot (which you can see if you join an Official Beta server) so that we could actually test the functionality, and to provide a reference demonstration of the functionality to users. We’ve covered all of B3’s required commands/events, and probably most/all of the “recommended” and “optional” ones.

    The game itself doesn’t handle admin groups, chat commands, etc., but rcon tools can implement these features (B3 does, for instance; again, see the Official Beta servers. It spams advertisement messages and thing every so often). It should be relatively trivial to add Chivalry support into other rcon tools, including web-based ones, but actually doing so is outside of our scope. If additional features for the protocol itself are requested, please let us know in the Beta Feedback forum.
