Oh that's a nasty behaviour ...I'll never visit a server again which is screwing with my .ini files.

Post the server here I'll kindly ask the admin to stop. If they refuse or don't answer then I'll take it from there.

You can also set your UnrealTournament.ini file to 'read only'. That may cause other issues but it will prevent any server from changing things.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

Mind posting the server ip's? Jack would really help out with this (and yes I really hate those servers servers that do that)

They probably don't have the bonus packs installed, being either "vanilla only" or very custom but still without the most basic things added that would make them better. :noidea

And sometimes it's even simpler ..."allow monsters" is deactivated by default, regardless which bonus pack is installed.

Yep you are right. Those are running server affiliates and it did indeed add them to my favorites. I joined one to take a look and someone immediately recognized me, "King of Kings" I think. He called me by my real name so it wasn't a chat bot. Anyway got immediately kicked off the server.

Gametracker has already deranked the servers for using fake players. I didn't see contact email for the servers and the only website listed is one that is for a hosting company. I'd be interested in seeing what Dark has to say about removing them from the master server listings. Fake players, rewriting players ini files. That would be enough for me.

Don't be too overhasty and quote seriously the full context - you have forgotten the declaration:

Code: Select all

class NexgenRCPMatchControl extends NexgenPanel;

var UWindowComboControl favouritesList;
...
I guess the code you posted is for filling Nexgens internal favourite list:

Oh :/ when I found that line I was like, omg I found that function! But I didn't read anything else from there, I just copied the function, that's all. Thank you for having corrected me. I excuse for what I wrote before than .o. Maybe I should spoiler it saying I was wrong, so people don't think it's fault of NexGen ://

If forum rules allow this I'd remove that posting or convert it to a picture because if not doing so, web search engines will fetch the text and present it to people doing a search. And if they come, visit and read just only your posting they get a false impression of a good piece (IMO) of software.

@POF
Put everything in a spoiler tag ...searchengine bots can't look into spoilers ...as far as I know.
But maybe they have advanced and can it now? :noidea
Or just delete your false assumption and add a counter statement and put a disclaimer why you deleted it.

I thought it was the ServerAffiliates mod that did this bullshit behavior?
