{XG} Clan News / Forum is back online!
« on: 06 July 2016, 02:04:01 »
As you might have noticed, the forum has been down for quite a while. This was due to an incompatibility with PHP 7.
I was hoping to had this fixed earlier but we had some bugs in the PHP implementation which took quite a while to fix and I also suddenly got busy with work and my study, as such I couldn't spend hours on debuging and testing new stuff.

Anyway, I now have vacation as well as some of the other people that are still around (e.g. Andy/Bill and Chris/14lol41).

So we've recently started working on making a plan to "Make {XG} Great Again"

I've already put some effort into updating our servers, since some of the old settings didn't even work any more thanks to SAPP not having backwards compatibility but still doing auto update's..

Additionally I've put some time into tweaking our all vehicle server on Halo Combat Evolved (Yes you read that right, not Custom Edition!)
Some of these changes are listed below and have also been brought to the rest of our Halo servers (including Custom Edition)

  • Ping kick replaced with warp/lag detection and kill
  • Map voting and skip disabled when under 8 players, to run popular maps only which keeps the server full
  • Prevent grenade spam, while still having infinite nades (sort of) with a LUA script
  • Improved camp detection, only enabled when there are a lot of players in the server and only on select servers
  • Improved vehicle camp detection, which re spawns the vehicle. Also great to get rid of AFK drivers
  • Optimized Halo sleep time, for players with low pings like me  8)
  • Improved detection of aimbots and glitches 8)
Additionally, we've been working on making our Zombie server back the way it used to be before it lost it's rank.

Stay tuned for more news, we have some big changes in mind to make this community/clan active again!

SPAM / something to think about..

{XG} Clan News / Updated Halo Combat Evolved servers
« on: 24 August 2015, 03:12:28 »
I've just updated our Halo Combat Evolved servers in Dallas (USA) to a new version of phasor and it's also using new scripts.  (this was long overdue, but I didn't have the time for it, till now)

The following scripts have been updated: kill messages script, ping kick script, afk kick script, zombie script (on the zombie server only, of course ;) ), ANTI camp script, rage quit script, join message script.

Please let me know if there are any issues or undesired changes. Suggestions are also welcome.
To do: Fix aimbot script ( currently comes up with an error message.

If the server rank doesn't drop hugely and no issues are found then I will implement these changes to our server in Roubaix(France) (will give this a week or so)

General Discussion / Folding @ home
« on: 29 June 2015, 00:40:32 »
I'm running Folding@home on our game servers so that the unused CPU power doesn't go to waste and is actually used for a good purpose!

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics. As of today, the project is using the idle resources of personal computers owned by volunteers from all over the world.

Want to contribute and donate your own unused CPU (e.g. when browsing the web or doing other low CPU demanding jobs)? Join our team at:

{XG} Clan News / Site update
« on: 28 June 2015, 21:40:14 »
Our website was down for a couple of weeks because of a database crash which was caused by a ungraceful shutdown of the server during a maintenance job by OVH, I decided to keep it offline because more maintenance was planned by OVH and I didn't want to have the same problem again.

Unfortunately we lost a few posts and a few registered members, I tried to recover the latest version of the database but this didn't succeed. For the people that lost their account and post, please recreate them.

The site is now functioning normally again, and I'll be making some performance optimizations next week or so.

{XG} Clan News / Plan: bringing transparancy to the clan
« on: 08 April 2015, 00:42:21 »
Since I often see posts about someone discussing the actions of our admins and other players on our servers and since I don't have the time to go trough all the log files I was looking for a solution to this.

I think it would be a good idea to make the log files public, Altis will check if the log files contain any confidential data (e.g. passwords when logging in with rcon or what ever) and if they don't I'll be looking in to a method to make the log files publicly accessible.

I'll try to implement this for our SAPP servers first, if everything works fine we will also do this with our servers on Halo: Combat Evolved.
As for Halo: Combat Evolved: I'll look for an anti aimbot script, are there any other things that need to be updated/fixed on these servers?

Please vote on the poll, if you think making the logs public is a bad idea please reply with your reason(s).
If you have any recommendations for our Halo: Combat Evolved servers you can also post them here.

If you have any other suggestions to make the clan more transparent please let me know. :)

{XG} Clan News / Updated website
« on: 22 March 2015, 00:10:41 »
I've updated the website again, it's been running on Linux(Ubuntu 14.10) for the past few weeks which should slightly improve its performance (because PHP and MariaDB run a bit faster on Linux).

Today I've made some more small tweaks to this and enabled some advanced mod_pagespeed settings.
Let me know if you notice any problems or if you notice a speed improvement ;)

General Discussion / Test your ping
« on: 18 February 2015, 01:16:00 »
I'm going to make some changes to our server in Dallas, but before I do this I'd like to see if this improves the pings for everyone.
It would be helpful if you posted the results of the ping test below. (Please include your city and country name as well as the name of your ISP if you know this)

Additionally I'm opening a location in Chicago and/or New York and Los Angelas later this year, I'd would be helpful if you provided your ping for these locations as well so I can pick the best datacenter.
Once again: Please include your city and country name as well as the name of your ISP if you know this

If you don't know how to run a ping test please see this page:
