Title: XR 1.3.8.1 Server Crashes & Performance Hotfix Patch (15-10-2017)
Post by: Hakugei on October 15, 2017, 12:40:31 am
Patchnotes 1.3.8.1
Small patch to improve server stability and general performance.

  • Fixed a server crash caused by malicious players dropping too many gold goodies during warmup
  • Fixed a rare server crash caused by team0 ammo goodies
  • Improved performance by limiting the amount of gold drop spam, thus decreasing the strain on clients and server by malicious players, sv_golddropInterval (default 1000ms)
  • Fixed a minor debug message
  • Disabled vote precheck system entirely, most players don't know how it works and those that do know hate it - an unpopular feature that doesn't work well
  • Added (<override>) to !weaponfire, which may become relevant in the future for a balance test change
  • Removed on-connect Newerth MOTD, as it has served its purpose for now


Since this is an entirely server-side patch, clients do not need to update to play.
Please report any bugs or issues that arise from this patch ASAP so I can fix them before they become a problem.
