#2 TF2 Server Auto Shutdown in TF2 General Discussion

Make sure "sv_shutdown" is not called in any configs, and set tf_allow_server_hibernation to 0 if you keep having issues. Check the VPS logs to make sure you're not hitting memory limits (OOM killer) and start your server with -autoupdate and an update script, this way the server will automatically reboot instead of shutting down.

./srcds_run [...snip...] -steamcmd_script /home/your-user/steam/server-1.txt -autoupdate

Contents of server-1.txt:

@ShutdownOnFailedCommand 1
@NoPromptForPassword 1

force_install_dir /home/your-user/server-1/

#5 lagging + timing out in Q/A Help
WFlashSo, since last month or so I've been lagging and timing out almost every minute, both in TF2 and in Mumble. Example video here:

https://youtu.be/SacQr5GSJXY

It's so annoying to play like this that I was thinking of just quitting the game altogether tbh. Is it something wrong on my end or should I blame my ISP for this?

You're still receiving game packets because you get voice lines and a damage marker.

Run a trace with WinMTR to the gameserver and mumble server until you hit a timeout. My guess is a firewall/DoS-filter in your router.

#1438 PugChamp in Projects
ShooshServers changed for EU? Ping is trash

Servers and hosting company are still the same since EU pugchamp started. I'm seeing 8ms ping from the server to your last known IP right now.
Please provide a net_graph 5 screenshot/video during the lag and a trace with WinMTR from your end to "baguette.fakkelbrigade.eu".

For some reason PugChamp never restarts their servers, so these ones have been online for 48 days, which doesn't help.

If you could book a BaguetteBrigade server on serveme.tf and confirm/refute the ping problem there that would be helpful too.

#5 where do yall play public mge these days? in TF2 General Discussion
24If traffic at night approaches more than what I see now, I'll make it MGE-only 24 hours and pay for serveme.

You now have 6 free months of na.serveme.tf premium, so feel free to try out 24/7 MGE on your own box.

#5 SOAP breaking serveme? in TF2 General Discussion

I updated the NA servers when steph asked, to fix the first broken auto-update, but the updated version turned out not to work with 1.9 sourcemod.
Sourcemod has now been updated to 1.10, and soap has been updated everywhere manually again and this seems to work.

#130 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects

Still looking for better DDoS protection in NA, suggestions welcome, let me know here or add me on steam. NFOservers anti-DDoS takes a couple of minuts to kick in, which is too long in my opinion.

Also offering a reward for information that will lead to the identity of the DDoSer of NA matches.

#128 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects

The DDoS protected added to 8 of the Chicago servers did not work correctly during peak hours, causing packet loss. It's been disabled.
A similar anti-DDoS system added to the Dallas servers appears to have functioned without problems, so that's staying enabled for now.

#127 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects

Lots of DDoSes recently in NA, so we're trying to get DDoS mitigation on more machines. A total waste of my time and budget for this project, but unfortunately it's necessary once more.

Like in the EU, the NA servers with Anti-DDoS are now marked, please use these for your casted matches. A total of 24 servers with DDoS protection are available right now (LA and Chicago), we're looking to add a central location soon, probably Dallas.

#126 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects
ArieWe're also looking to retire the aging FakkelBrigade machine (hosting EU serveme.tf and some gameservers) after almost 8 years of service and replacing it with a modern 6-core machine.

The EU serveme.tf site is now hosted on a shiny new machine, the site might feel a little faster :)

Donations have been solid for NA, so we're looking to maintain the North Carolina machine in addition to the locations from my previous post.

#4 controlling servers while streaming in TF2 General Discussion

You could also use sourcemod and you won't have to use RCON passwords.

Install sourcemod and make/edit a file called

tf/addons/sourcemod/configs/admins_simple.ini

And in that file put:

"[your-steam-ID3-here]" "99:z"

#9 Remove NURBEY from the Live Streams list please! in Site Discussion

Why would you be a mod in a pedo's channel, especially after a thread like this?

#125 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects

Yeah, it took a while, but we added a second Chicago-based machine providing 8 gameservers in addition to the 8 NFO-Chicago gameservers. Due to tragicservers going away we had to get a bunch of extra capacity in NA on short notice. This has resulted in having too many machines right now (compared to the amount of money coming in from premium), so we're planning to get rid of the Dallas and North Carolina locations as these are the most expensive, and the least popular we think. Let us know here or on Discord if you disagree.

This would leave NA with these locations/servers:
Kansas City 1: 4 gameservers
Kansas City 2: 20 gameservers
Chicago (NFO): 8 gameservers
Chicago 2: 8 gameservers
Los Angeles: 8 gameservers

In EU we had to cope with a price hike for one of the datacenters we use (i3d), but we did that by getting a better deal on the servers in France. So you might've noticed 2 new French DDoS-protected machines (BaguetteBrigade/CroissantBrigade) that are taking the place of the 2 machines we had before.
We're also looking to retire the aging FakkelBrigade machine (hosting EU serveme.tf and some gameservers) after almost 8 years of service and replacing it with a modern 6-core machine.
