What utilities are you using as of now?

the time out variables are useless

are you using the latest ipdriver.u? are you running server crash fix? are you a home server or hosted server? if hosted they should be able to do a packet capture and block those ip addresses.

are you using secure validate?

The first rule of dealing with people attacking you is to not give them any information. You *never* post that you've successfully blocked them, that only gives them information that they need to change their vector of attack. Now they know what they are doing isn't working and they will stop and resume with another method. Next time float misinformation when it doesn't really matter. "Yeah guys, the flooding is still going on" when it's dealt with....that sort of thing.

Also you didn't really stop anything. You may be blocking the connections locally but it's not preventing the flood from reaching your gate and that will still hurt you. As I posted before you just can't effectively stop this at the client level. You need the service of your ISP, they can stop these assholes from ever reaching your IP addy to make the request. Enough of these and it's going to connection flood you into lag no matter what you block with, it just depends how concentrated the effort the people doing the attack decide to use. Right now it's dirt cheap to rent botnet armies to just destroy an address for a limited time. This is actually a cottage industry in the competitive console arena.

Anyway, stop posting you 'beat' them. You are only stirring the hornet's nest with a rake. Oh, and take down the pirate link in your forum for the entire UT game download. If you love the game then don't let others steal it. Copies are as cheap as a cup of coffee online. I thought better of you than allowing that.

I disagree. I think we are discussing someone's moral judgement.

Anyone is freely welcome to share an updated setup that would slipstream into any installation and it's completely unnecessary to post the entire game in the process. You are choosing to do it to get more players so just say that.

It's your site but I have a feeling you will see a reduction in help responses because of the choices. Historically it doesn't go well for people who openly pirate in the community. It just shows a lack of respect for everything.

You mean repackage the demo installation with the fixes needed like replacing gamespy for 333networks etc ?
That's not a job everybody can do.

What I can do, is what you see at the site.
A stable version which we created with the help from alot of players.
With only good intentions in mind to keep this game alive, and on public servers

Please read, before your 'assumption-policy' kicks in.

I only offer this all-in-one solution cause it's sad that more ppl don't play UT, because with the original settings it gives problems on their clients.
