Bob's BAN LIST

I play a lot of the EU "no mines" version. There is a huge number of players who lag so badly it makes the game unplayable. It go so bad that roughly 1 in 3 games (with 6 players) were running at normal speed. As a result I created a ban list. There are three ways to get onto the ban list. 1) You slowed down a game to the point that people companied. 2) You joined a game and disconnected as soon as it started (These seem to be people who were unhappy with their spawn) 3) After dyeing you stayed in the game and deliberately created lag (trolling) Developers. The issue with a lot of lagers seems to be CPU. 5th gen intel and below seems to be guaranteed lag. A) would be it be possible to multithread more. As far as I can tell we are all using only 1 core. B) Create a rule in the code that if you are on a 5th gen or earlier you cant join multiplayer. C) A short term fix would be to display users CPU under their IP and let the hosts manage the issue. It would be great if we could find a solution as it buggers up and otherwise brilliant game.

Discussion about the game and its default mods.

Its just some random anonymous person doing it, start with message spamming the n word then later limits the connection usually after killing a team mate, apart from keeping a list of IP ranges to ban not much more people can do.

should have a unique hardware ID/install UUID, then it would be harder to do this...

Well, could have been someone taking your name (written wrong).. But then again we have to beware of that happening again on that nick, so please (continue to) play with profile, then you should be safe.....Image
It makes the point of why we need the ips in the list. either everyone needs to be forced to register or you need a way to identify the laggers.

Greets,

watch out for this guy, constant trolling, fake ip, accusing me, slowing game down to ultra lag, also racism.

tell me why anyone would use your account? Make another account. Stop using that name because if anyone did that with my account then I would not want to be associated with it.

If I see the name Austrinker, whether or not that is you, I will kick you from the server and I will leave a game if the name Austrinker shows up.

Do you even understand the difference between registered and unregistered accounts ?

first of all nobody is using my original account, besides me as its protected by password. There is somebody who uses my name, not my account. As alrdy written my account is registered and not unregistered. Secondly what u are doing or not doing, if u kick this fake account or not, doesnt care me at all. Third u still didnt show the whole screenshot (maybe because all could see its not my account?)..... how pathetic is this? Fourth i had zero complains since years from anybody in the openra community and now u come along, posting something from clearly not me and sticking to that story ever since.....
You will kick the name Austrinker whenever u see ? got no problem with that, also i got no problems with fakers writing some trash about me, i just dont care. So u think i should make a new account because of this? I dont care with what the name is associated because there will never be complains about my registered account ;) everyone can create a new account and name it any name he wants and write some trash about others.

So let me tell u something, i will continue using my acount like the years before, playing openra as registered player and having fun. What u think or what namefakers think is completly irrelevant for me. In other words: I dont care :lol:

It's not just his account, unregistered anonymous players can use any names they want, they use the name of registered players to try and gain credability.

The text spam should have been fixed by now or at least limit it somehow as its not good this can still be done now...

I just played with blood and it started lagging AF during the game, once he left everything was cool again ... but also watch out for CoronaKevin, he does some 2vs1 shit when he is not having a chance against you
