Old problem: no users joining, game does not appear in list
« on: December 17, 2013, 02:55:59 pm »
Hi,

I host Vampirism Fire on euro.battle.net, asia.battle.net and eurobattle.net.

I have the problem, that maximum 1 player joins per minute. Moreover, I can't see the game appearing in the game list.

Is there a fix for this problem?

Thank you,
Keyno

Thank you for the fast reply.

I added the code and recompiled. I think it changed a little bit, but not much.


One Question: Does the MapGameType change, when I rehost using !pub <name> ?
Or does it change every x seconds?

Thanks.

It does not change. It's static value which you should define in config or in Ghost++ sources.
I'm offering most advanced Warcraft 3 bot hosting.

Yes, but when exactly does it change?
Everytime I restart the server?

Yes it does change on every autorehost.

This is by default on 20 seconds if im not wrong.
You can see the rehost if you join the admin game ;-)

Regards

Edit:
Oh and one addition before i forget that.

There is still one mgt in the list which is invalid. I didnt had the time yet to sort the one out :-P
You can expand the list by using newer mgt's as you can see on the reply of uakf.b on the other topic.

Might mine used already a lot :-P So its getting ineffective :-P

Ok, thank you, I will try that.

Do you think hosting on GArena makes more people join?

It Can, yes.

When we were hosting on Garena we reached 100% more players and it was increasing.
However we stopped it temporarily. I hosted LoD a subtype of dota, im not sure how many people play there vamp fire.

But you should care, many people on Garena using 3rd Party tools, means hacks.
We already thinking to split Garena players and normal bnet players.

So you can try it, but there is no 100% secure that you reach more players.

You can follow the introduction and install guide on the gcb category.

Hallo,

We have 4 HostBots and our games are not listed in the game list... can anyone help me please. A friend downloaded the latest version from svn and get errors during the compling process. We use v17.1

We currently have 20 members registered.

Did you already thought about the issue that this game is totally unknown?
It doesnt help anymore to have a good MGT, the main issue that a unknown map has no more chances to get published that good by new hosters.
However, the map seems to be interesting, also the site layout, design and information are nice. But this is just the few from a hoster.

The best option for you is to get GCB and broadcast the games to lan, more ifnormation can be found in this Forum at the GCB category.

However I can offer you to braodcast the game also on our bots if you included for example w3mmd support. A good option is to join ohsystem.net/forum & create on the general discussion a short topic about the map, just introduce it and wait for the reaction of our community. If its positive we can host the map. Just offering you that.

Regards

This does help to parse detailed stats of the game. For example the easiest thing is the flag winner:
http://ohsystem.net/stats/?game=22197

Its just a small thing which does help hosters a lot to support custom games more.
And however the community want this, stats are the maintain things today...

Yeah you're right.. we are new and only a few people knows our mod. We're presented at http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/map-development-202/forsaken-bastions-fall-242443/.

We implemented a logfile for our bots but atm we don't have time to show details of our game. For us it's interesting to get listed in the gamelist but thats the main problem. No games of our 4 Bots are displayed. only sometimes someone joins the game. so i think our games are listed only every 10min or something like this.

I tested hosting with makemehost.com and after 8min we had a full game. ^^

So we still have to know how to change our bot cfg's :(
