QValidate for Linux!
 
Okay, finally it seems that there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks to the ownage research Xfire has been doing on creating native Linux mods, there is quite a big chance that QValidate will be Linux-server compatible in the near future. This upcoming week I won't have time to develop, but from next week I'll be working on it.

As it seems now, the only drawback will be that it will only be compatible with 436 and 440 servers. Until now we haven't been able to get it to work on a 451 server. Please let me know (via this thread) wether or not this would be a big problem.

Stay tuned!

thats very nice or in german "goil :P"

As for me it wouldn't be a problem. 451 uses too much processor time(is it correct in english? :P). QVal for Linux ? I can say one "Hakunamatata" ! :D

All I can say is wow :D ! I an really looking forward to this. Give our big thanks to this Xfire person whoever he is. And the fact that this won't be available for version 4.51 servers isn't a problem. A lot of GSPs are currently using version 4.40 as it fixes the DoS exploit and doesn't produce the lag that some players have been complaining about on v. 4.51.

@Rush : You can say processor cycles although processor time is correct ;)

I only run v451 servers atm but if there will be QVal for linux I will downgrade to v440

NuFF$@iD 26th July, 2004 05:34 PM

what about the hooks? will it be updated security wise...... or just a port

ProfessorQ 26th July, 2004 07:56 PM

It will be both a security update and a port. It will detect all HelioS hooks up to V2.6.

Rush 26th July, 2004 09:33 PM

Is it possible to make something like auto-update ? I'm not thinking about the whole package but for example a little database with existing hooks and methods to detect them.

That's what I'm thinking about for future versions.

Btw, the Linux part is already working. Also the security update has been done so all HelioS hooks up to V2.6 are detected. Now, I just need to do some finetuning on the Linux side before I can release the whole thing. I'll most probably will release a test version somewhere next week.

NuFF$@iD 27th July, 2004 11:28 AM

i can test windows versions as usual .
as a request will you include some form of announcing when helios hook is found to the players on the server.

good work btw :)

Azazel 27th July, 2004 12:48 PM

Excellent stuff Proff :)

Undy 27th July, 2004 09:31 PM

Would be nice if it worked for 451 since the 451server patch is good for making the webadmin work and stabilizing the packets.

AnthraX 29th July, 2004 03:16 PM

Xfire 29th July, 2004 08:06 PM

LeeBe 2nd August, 2004 04:26 PM

:D Great news! well done guys :)

as another request, can you get it to open the 'You are an idiot' web page when it finds a hook? not really needed but it would cheer me up a lot when I read about it :D

Xfire 3rd August, 2004 07:54 AM

Good news: Got it working on 451 servers too :) seems like there's even more hope :D:D
