It's probably got to do with the score override set up on the server's config

I need to see what's up with that, I don't have any strange cosmetics or anything like that to confirm.

Brimstonedominations are still on though

Which server was that on? I thought I tested it on one of the servers and having it work properly.

Mind linking the score override plugin?
I could take a peek at the code and see if that might be causing it (and it likely is)

Also, my offer still stands from the other thread:

DoctorMiggyFogChicago 1 & Chicago 2 DM servers are up again, these servers have no snipers in it.
I'm more than happy to share my sourcebans server with you to deal with:
Lyreix@Fog can we add you to report if any of the DM hackers show up again? It's been happening for a while now and it'll probably keep happening somehow
I also have some extra stuff running on my server too (nothing that effects game play) that you might be interested in putting on your server. PM me!

That code was made with CSGO in mind, a lot of plugins for that game don't work the same in TF2.

CSGO does have a functions that can change a players kill and score count without actually constantly overriding the value (CS_SetClientAssists, CS_SetClientContributionScore). From a quick google search it doesn't look like similar functions exist in tf2 however I'm sure there is a way to actually change the point values for kills/assists.

I can a look into it when I get home later

I modified it so that it would look at TF2 values instead of the CSGO values, but the idea is the same.

Tonight I noticed that the chicago dm #3 doesn't actually use the esea whitelist as advertised. Can't speak for dallas 3 but I'd guess it is the same situation.

Not sure how up to date they are but I'd guess they are from before the global whitelist came out.

Please do

I agree with this also because the rockets don't actually fire from the same place as stock or original. However I think there is an issue with dm that the cow mangler doesn't actually get ammo regen. This could be fixed since the last time I used it in a pregame dm server though.

Bumping this two year old thread to provide an update on my future plans for the TFTV DM Servers.

As you can probably notice, I have not been providing any support for the servers over the past few years other than paying for them to be kept up (I don't even know if people still use them). I haven't played the game more than a few times over the years, and this will probably not change in the future. With that in mind, I believe it's now time for me to finally bring these DM servers to a close.

The servers are currently paid for up until around the end of July. After this, they will close down as the billing period expires on each one. If for some reason someone wants to overtake the servers, they can get in contact with me via Steam. Otherwise, this decision is final on my end and I will not be entertaining offers to continue running the servers myself as I can no longer afford to keep them up and running, nor am I interested in doing so even if I had the money. I will provide a link to each server's files near the end of July for anyone who wishes to run a DM server with similar configurations to what I currently have.

I would like to say thanks to everyone who has used the servers over the many years they have been up and running, it was a fun experience for the time I was actively maintaining them.

Hello-
I'm interested in and considering taking over or creating replacement dm servers. At RGB, I talked to a few community members who expressed that they'd be willing to donate to support said servers. I made a poll to gauge how widespread this feeling is. I believe either way I'll be able to do one or two servers out of pocket, but receiving community support would allow more servers, more locations, and particularly ensure the longevity of my ability to host the servers.

Details of the numbers:

Show Content
As it stands currently, the 6 dm servers (3 in chicago, 3 in dallas) cost $40/month to host. From server statistics, it looks like the dallas #2 and #3 servers aren't used particularly frequently, and might not be needed (particularly #3). The chicago #3 server isn't tracked, but may be the same. With these changes, it may be possible to reduce the costs to $20-34/month, though I'm happy to keep all of them running with enough support. It also may be possible to replace one of the current ones with one in a new location if people wanted to, etc.

Please fill out this poll to express how much you would be willing to support the tftv dm servers. Thanks!

Chicago 1 and 2 are the most used and most important servers. Dallas 1 and 2 are OK as well (but I'm biased towards Chicago).

The two #3 servers are hot garbage that allow dumb weapons and sniper. I promise that the only reason those are sometimes used is not because people want to practice that trash. It's because people just want to dm and they join whatever server has people in it. Either the initial 1-2 people in there are the jokers that really feel like they need to practice sniper/dumb weapons in dm or people literally accidentally happened to click on those servers when all six were empty and then people are going to continue to join what's populated until prime time dies out.

The maximum number of servers needed to be up is 3 (4 if you really want) and a safe minimum is 2. It is super rare to see 3 servers filled up.

Also please if we could fix the issue that causes you to download gigs of sound files unless you have the "cl_downloadfilter mapsonly" cvar that would be great. My understanding is that other servers that are actually maintained have had this fixed for some time now. As it is now it's hurting the population of the servers. Either the server says 8/8 while actually 1-2 people aren't playing but downloading maps for 15 minutes or plenty of people probably just give up and don't play.

Also the afk kickers are super inconsistent between the servers. The bad one(s) are where the kicker seems to not work at all and someone just afks in spec forever.

I don't think that the dm maps need to line up with what is currently being played in league season. It's just good to have a variety of places to shoot at each other. I miss fighting on gravelpit B and even turbine (that one's a bit cramped though). The fact is that pretty much all of the maps are awful for various reasons save for process, viaduct, and maybe snakewater or metalworks. If you can accept that then -the more the merrier-.
