  1. Sehe maintained his own repo of maps he considered "good" or "worthwhile". He refused to consider maps he didn't like for various reasons. When the HAC2 repo disappeared, there were no backups, and Btcc22 and Harbinger got Sehe to cough up his repo. I populated the new HAC2 repo with that list, and then started adding more maps as I caught failures in the logs. At certain points in time, I scraped the entire H3 website, or other places I could find map packs. Then, I got a huge dump of over 5000+ maps from mihirgates, of which over 2000 maps were unique. Now, we're at the point where the HAC2 repo has 5,687 maps for both PC and CE, including quite a few singleplayer maps as well. TA DA... always remember to back up your stuff, people...
  2. For one, fix the gametracker link in your sig
  3. Yeah, sorry to not reply back, but I found the query_add command. thanks!
  4. While messing around with some "stuff" I came across a use for a LUA script for SAPP to alter the server query response. For example, if you look at a server query response, it's like this: <key>\<value>\<key>\<value> - this is used to get current map name, server name, players on the server at the time, etc. etc. Has anyone ever made a script to modify that and add more variables?
  5. better yet, do this: ping client.haloanticheat.com See if that gets a reply, or if it doesn't at least gets a timeout. (I forget if I configured my firewall to allow pings like that). have an issue with another player, who seems to be having a problem resolving client.haloanticheat.com Also, do this: nslookup client.haloanticheat.com And post the results.
  6. Last year, end of December I think, the haloantichat.com domain went offline when it went up for renewal (it was paid for by Btcc22 a few days ahead of time, but for some reason until I opened a ticket with the registrar, it suddenly started working). Anyway, during that time, I told a lot of people to put entries in their local hosts file for those hostnames with a static IP address I was using at the time. If those entries were there, HAC2 would probably crash. They are NOT there, so that's not the issue. Moving on, what's your IP address? Send me a direct message and I'll check my logs to see if you're even hitting my servers.
  7. and if it doesn't, give me your IP address and I'll debug it from my side. ALSO - IMPORTANT: Make sure you do NOT have any of the following entries in your local HOSTS file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts client.haloanticheat.com maps.haloanticheat.com This goes for anyone else reading this too.
  8. Everything looks good here. People are hitting it from all over: xx.xx.xx.xx - - [05/Jul/2018:20:53:24 -0400] "GET /hac.dll HTTP/1.1" 304 - xx.xx.xx.xx - - [05/Jul/2018:20:53:26 -0400] "GET /hac.dll HTTP/1.1" 304 - xx.xx.xx.xx - - [05/Jul/2018:20:53:26 -0400] "GET /hac.dll HTTP/1.1" 200 294912 xx.xx.xx.xx - - [05/Jul/2018:20:53:29 -0400] "GET /hac.dll HTTP/1.1" 304 - xx.xx.xx.xx - - [05/Jul/2018:20:53:35 -0400] "GET /hac.dll HTTP/1.1" 304 - Anyone EVER has a problem with HAC2 contact me - friend me in Steam, or go to this discord: https://discord.gg/CVvwT2m How often is this happening? I haven't had a real outage in weeks.
  9. Crap, is it still screwed?
  10. Subscribed. I'd like to know what you can't do with HAC2 installed? There's a difference between "interfere with" and "being replaced by". I do know that if you offer map downloading, I would be happy to be the repo (or one of many) for it. Served by gigabit fiber in the US, and the potential of adding an Ireland repo, or anywhere else Amazon sells instances, I'd be happy to help. The one thing I ask is that we come up with a way to do it with redundancy and fault tolerance. I would be happy to provide all servers required for this. My current repo is 3249 maps. at about 85GB zipped, and would also be happy to support 7zip or whatever compression you see fit to use. I have another 2000 maps or so that I haven't put up yet. Disk space is not a problem for me. HAC2 support will never go away, I suspect there are plenty of players out there that don't even realize they have HAC2 installed, as it's been bundled with a Spanish-version of Halo CE somewhere along the way
  11. Subscribed in case it's a HAC2 thing.
  12. Don't be surprised if it's not recoverable. It's time for everyone to rally and gather as many of their scripts as possible, and post them here. What does this site offer in terms of file upload? Just attachments on posts, or is there a way to centrally locate all these (potential) files ?
  13. Your forum is entirely gone? Lots of great info there. Please let me or someone else put up the contents. I can grab a pile of it from archive.org, but it would be great to have a backup of the forum itself. Even if it's just static content.
  14. Cool stuff. Controller aim assist? Sounds like a bot - JK Is this ONLY with controllers?
  15. And it's down anyway.
