    [BF3] BF3 server limitations (R-33)

    Hi.

    Okay, no long words just a list of limitations or lack of capabilities we have to deal with.

    List based on BF3 server R-33 (1043704).
    __________________________________________________ __

    • limited values to use
      • vars.roundRestartPlayerCount: smallest value is 0
      • vars.roundStartPlayerCount: smallest value is 4
      • vars.soldierHealth, limited between 60-100 on ranked servers
      • vars.unlockMode is only usable on unranked servers
      • vars.roundLockdownCountdown, limited between 10-30 seconds on ranked servers, on unranked between 10-900.
    • limited VIP functions
      • functional reserved slot list if "Premium first"-joinQueue is activated
      • no text chat moderation functions
      • join queue is done via battlelog and could not be read out on the server
    • limited settings targeting individual maps/levels
      • no level based vars
      • no auto rotation of empty maps
      • no max time limit for active rounds
    • limited additional player information
      • no clan tag included in player name / player list
      • limited onSpawn information
        • no kit information
        • no specialization information
        • no weapons information
      • limited onKill information
        • no coordinate information for killer and victim
        • no distinction of vehicles/vehicle mounted weapons/jets/helis/boats in onKill weapon information
      • no information about ping times between server <-> player
      • ping times ingame are from you <-> other player
    • limited serverInfo response compared to BC2
      • missing plasma backend connection information
      • missing game-mod information (not sure if it will be used in the future like in BC2)
      • missing map pack information (not sure if it will be used in the future like in BC2)
    • known server side bugs or effects
      • the server may differences between maxPlayers and maxEffectivePlayers
      • vars.gameModeCounter reduces its value by one on query on some values, for example 999 (effect/bug)
      • shifting players
        • no team-0 usable to shift players between teams on a full server
        • server limits the max number of player per team around the half of the max number of all players allowed on the server
    • Rcon protocol
    • to be continued .?.?.


    This list can also be found in german.

    plus:

    * underslung nades give the assault rifle as the kill weapon in the playerKilled data. I.e. The M320 mounted under an M416 rifle is reported as M416, hence damage AssaultRifle.

    * knife kills are sometimes weapon Weapons/Knife/Knife, other times weapon Melee, depending on the animation - this is not really an issue if the knife is the only weapon reported as Melee...

    That's changed now Phil?

    vars.roundRestartPlayerCount: smallest value is 2 on ranked and 1 on unranked
    vars.roundStartPlayerCount: smallest value is 4 on ranked and 2 on unranked

    Yes it has changed. Thanks for mentioning.
    With R-11 0/1 can be used. But don't set both to the same value because the server will assume RestartPlayerCount to be smaller than StartPlayerCount and it is not clear if the server will lower Restart or raise Start on its own.

    never mind read your post elsewhere say rcon didn't have this available...

    the game now has in game pings for each player - is that available for rcon now? If so i suppose we will see it in the next release?

    PS i note you "say no information about ping times"

    unlockMode

    is this simply a true false, or is there a way to customize what weapons/attachments are allowed?

  7. #7
    vars.unlockMode xxxxx

    Unlock mode
    Specifies which set of unlocks should be available to players. Current values are available:
    all - all unlocks for player, including purchased DLCs
    common - all unlocks for player, excluding DLCs
    stats - unlocks for player according to his stats
    none - only the base set of weapons

    Ping is not reported via RCON, so no, no update for that.


    Before posting: Have you read the MANUAL?
    Before posting: Have you used the SEARCH?

    I will not provide support through PMs or TeamSpeak. Please post your questions in our forums.

    The new values are now properly accepted by the system but the server still tells me it needs 3 more players upon joining. Makes no difference when supplied via startup.txt or at runtime. Happens on two different RSP's for me. What's up? Do these (restart 0, start 1) settings actually work correctly for others?

    EDIT: After closer inspection the settings work correctly when connecting right after a server restart but then the server skips to the next round and resets itself to requiring 4 players again. Need to investigate further.
    EDIT2: Appeared to be a malfunctioning plugin, after turning off all plugins and a second procon that was still connected the settings seem to work as expected now. Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm not sure but setting this low values could be lost the Quick Match option...

    I tried 0 and 1 values one hour: no one get in on server. Changing to 1 and 2 the result was better.
