The rcon section for HLSW was hidden at the bottom of my screen so I didn't see it!
HLSW is a useful tool I will keep, but so far the HLSW logs haven't pinpointed the problem. Or maybe I just don't know what to look for.
I got rcon running fine, was able to browse the logs in console. I experimented a bit and was able to reproduce the crashing problem, then I compared the log file from BOTH the HLSW and the text logs to try and find a clue. I compared these logs with the logs of a normal map change also to find discrepancies.
Certain maps are causing the crash. But they don't do it every time. Sometimes, they load perfectly and everything is fine. Other times, the map comes up and the server reboots.
There are no conclusive error messages to go on.
My only lead right now is that the logs identify that I have an older version of "LogD" installed. NFO told me that they do not endorse LogD and don't know why I installed it. Well, as it turns out, LogD is required by another AdminMod plugin to operate which I find very useful (Map Manager Plugin
) and don't want to lose if I can help it.
I downloaded an updated version of LogD, but was unable to remove the old dll using FTP, so I can't install it yet. I've emailed NFO asking for help in removing the old dll.
What good are all these neat AdminMod plugins if the server can't run them? All I really wanted was a map manager that would change the map when one team scores x number of wins more than their opponents. I finally found one, so I hope this LogD update will fix the problem.
Thanks for all assistance. More help appreciated!
