Client Version

Mon, 03/20/2017 - 13:00
So, i've been checking my server logs and noticed that there are some players with suspicious client versions, is this some kind of bug or i should blacklist these players?
As far as i know, the actual client version is "1202|c04", but some players join with "1202|1e40 " or another value after the 1202|

Dev-Pack for Mappers

Sat, 03/18/2017 - 17:50
This package contains a few textures (orange/grey) and two static props (player standing/crouching) designed solely to support mappers during early stages of development.

There's also a sample map named dev_pack.cgz and a corresponding config file, which can be used as a default.cfg for new projects following a 'layout first' workflow.

This won't be the most useful thing for 'regular' map projects because cube engine map editing works very well without rigid workflows anyway. However, when approaching a map from an explicit competitive point of view, it might help to get the basic layout tested and adjusted before proceeding with the art stuff.

Hint: The player props will be facing 90 degrees left from your viewing direction.

As usual, any sort of feedback is welcome. Thanks!

Gone 5yrs

Thu, 03/16/2017 - 03:42
I just downloaded AC and haven't played in years.  Logging into forums says I haven't been here since 2012 lol.  It's sad to see maybe 5 populated servers at any one time when I remember seeing maybe 25 at a time populated.  I can only assume this has a lot to do with the banishment of GEMA.  Say I'm wrong but only 5 or so populated servers at a time makes it plain as day.  I mostly play team games anyway like CTF, TKTF etc but it's sad to see the popularity of the game so far from where I remember it five years ago.  IMHO let people play however they want and the crowds will be back.

People Randomly Banned

Sun, 03/12/2017 - 22:52
I don't know if it is some kind of bug, but many players are reporting that cannot connect to my server because they're banned. The problem is that all those people weren't banned, some of them are people that played for some time, disconnected and after trying to join the server again, are blocked. I've been reading the logs and some of these people don't even entered the server before. They're getting blacklist messages. Even if i removebans of the server, they still can't join. I checked the configs about nicknames and the blacklist, even deleted the lines. But the problem persist. I'm pretty sure that isn't any server config .

Ping Join-limit

Sat, 03/11/2017 - 15:37

Its possible to set an max ping limit to join for a client.
Would be fine for one of my LSS Servers.


Nice to see ya

Hey Mates

How are you?

Wanna play some AssaultCube? :)


Server Up Rate

Thu, 03/09/2017 - 19:24
I've been changing the configs of my server and i noticed that there's a switch -uN for setting the up-stream bandwidth, anyone know a good value for it? What is the default? As long as i know this could help in people ping. No matter what i do or change on my router settings (i changed what i know and searched) People still are lagging, even when i change the player capacity to my speed capacity. I want to know a good value for up stream, since i dont have control over it and couldn't find QoS setting on my router.

Lost Server Control

Mon, 03/06/2017 - 02:33
I think everyone know this impersonator that uses "tm" name. He have been reported more than 2 times, and his cheats are getting worse, he teleports, he uses noclip cheat from Doom, he change the teamkill count from people, and people still vote for "yes" every time he tries to kick or ban someone for fake reasons and hundreds of teamkills.
Today i banned him 3 or 4 times, he is now using tags from clans. But today, after i banned him, I got blacklisted from my own server, and not just that, people that tried to join my server received banned messages too, following my logs. I had to enter my server with the password or by the local server and remove the bans. I checked my blacklist and none of these people were banned, neither their names.
Obs: I was watching the server all time since i put it online.

Cannot quote?

Mon, 03/06/2017 - 00:49

if I try to quote a post, I get the loading icon thingy, it just keeps on spinning and spinning, but I never get to actually post the quote or get the option to paste it in a message?

Can anyone tell me wassup or what I can do to fix it?


Ban me from the game

Sun, 03/05/2017 - 01:28
Hi all, 

The following isn't some type of joke. 

I have been playing Assault cube on and off since 2009 and every time I get the game i get addicted and forget to do adult stuff. So I want to remedy that by requesting that my IP is banned from the game to stop me from playing so much. I delete the game but will probably be back on it in two days. 

I have not been hacked either. 

My IP is- Can't find it :/
Assault cube name is- The_CEO

I don't suspect that I will write on this again but if i ask to be back on the game can you please not agree to it for at least 2-3 years. 

Many thanks, 

A happy gamer

ah did that happen

Sun, 03/05/2017 - 01:15

Hmmm why close down a thread when it was active.

No guesses on that one is there !

As forum talk goes you just shown us all what is happening here.  
2 DEVS control everything ...........

You just shot yourself in the foot.  Adios in short FUCK OFF from me.

HUD Texture Question

Sat, 03/04/2017 - 09:43
Hi all, I'm experimenting with mods and I got a couple questions.

My first is, what's the difference between the files "items.png" and "items-tmp.png"?
The original texture files are identical as far as I can tell, and tmp sounds like it could be short for temporary.

My second question is, do the weapon icons that appear in items.png appear anywhere else other than at the bottom of the HUD next to the ammo count?

My final question is, are there any ways of increasing the resolution of textures?

Thanks in advance ;)

Constantly not finding/downloading textures

Sat, 03/04/2017 - 00:57
I can't find any thread where this was discussed before, so I have to ask. Is there something I can do about never having the textures for certain maps? I have been assuming they aren't packaged right but it's a bit frustrating. I just noticed it again on dust2. One of my favorite maps and the texture for the rvsf floor rarely loads

I need my account deleted

Thu, 03/02/2017 - 01:38
I have to wipe every trace of me from the internet and I need this account deleted because it contains my real name. Is there anything I can do? Or the mods?

Finally GEMA is removed.

Mon, 02/27/2017 - 19:45
I'm happy that devs finally removed GEMA from AssaultCube. It should have been done many year ago. This alternative game mode does not fit in this game. GEMA players have never showed respect or cared for this game.

Masterserver not replying (ban range?)

Fri, 02/24/2017 - 18:10
So i tried to connect  and masterserver stopped replying, the thing is, i was playing today untill 04:00 AM, thats when i shut down my server, at 13:00 PM, i started the game and server wasn't replying anymore, i searched all forum for a fix, tried the --mastertype=0 thing (my assaultcube.bat doesn't have this), and dont worked, before putting this, all servers were showing with players numbers and all info, after the code, no server showed. I stay almost all the time monitoring my server from an irc, i don't play that much, only when i'm bored and even when i do, hardly is on another server. 


Log on and play

Sun, 02/19/2017 - 16:25
Its curious why so many players want to be trolls or use hacks. I can not see the point of a flying hack or a spawn hack. All the same what simpleton, using youtube hacks, thinks that their clever and  that is fun IDK.

The issue I am really inquisitive about is that why is it that AC can not use a log on to play.
I mean a great deal of time has been invested in the forum log in. In truth, its bloody annoying but it works well.
I mean to say, surely it is not much to ask a player to log on as they would do in most online games anyway.
 If that player was given a unique key that only the Dev and the player know.
I know , "Oh theres a chance that someone may leave their computer on and someone else could play" , we have heard this before.  Given the state of the game atm, trolls, hacks and spam freaks all over the kingdom of Assaultcube, why on earth is  it not possible to give each player a unique key.

Whatever I feel sorry for the people who put great effort into this game to have their efforts trampled on by trolls etc.

Could someone advise me is it possible to implement this ?

Luca and TM Spawn Hacks.

This happened earlier today.
Their probably imposters but the IP's are there to see and also screenshots of the occurances.
