    Yes, you will be able to have these options on or off.

    And how is this accomplished?

  • TheTotsTheTots Posts: 2,279Player
    Currently I believe it's all in the .ini
    As we go forward, we will look for better ways to handle the options.
    The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    I guess I needed to be more specific. What values should a private server owner change to match an official server's settings? Can you provide the *.ini file settings or a documented how to?

    Sure thing, I'll have to wait until I'm at the office tomorrow to get that for you. I can't remember off of the top of my head.

    The bland cultured dairy product can get you official info tomorrow. In the meantime: edit the following in your server's AAGame.ini file under the appropriate sections. I'm guessing this is, roughly, what they've changed, but there may be some subtleties I'm missing. (Example: I don't think this covers the text chat restrictions mentioned)

    [AAGame.AAGameReplicationInfo]
    bDefaultAlwaysAllowGlobalVoice=false
    bDefaultForbidSpectatorVoice=true
    
    bDefaultAllowMapVoting=true
    bDefaultAllowOtherVoting=false
    
    [AAGame.AAPlayerController]
    bDisplayNumPing=false

    Thanks for clearing that up ol' Tots. I thought the changes were going to be enforced on ALL (private) servers too. That's what had me worried. ;)

    Why not just enable a couple SA and Asian servers?

    While it may be possible to host PG games in other countries, it's also possible that there are laws or other hurdles keeping hosts from existing. Some countries ban FPS games, for instance. Besides that, putting US Army branded material in the hands of other nations is a delicate thing. Some are allies and don't mind in the slightest. Others.... not so much.
    Hello sir, excellent accuracy.

    LETS GO PENS

    So when is this gonna be applied? Getting annoyed now. Are there logs about the people doing votekicks and stuff or am I wasting my time reporting abuse?

    Is it not already?
    We have made some changes in both the public 'normal' beta as well as the opt-in today.

    That was three days ago..

    Well, I just got kicked from some official server. Recorded everything, basically some guy following me around and shooting me, provoking a teamkill to get me kicked. But there were votes before I even teamkilled him. Really sad community after all if the only one speaking up for me is some American playing in the opponent team..
  • TheTotsTheTots Posts: 2,279Player
    Please send a report in with the server it happened on.
    We tried these variables to see if we could make the change without having to update the game.
    It seems it's not working like we hoped, so we're working on a more proper solution right now.

    Happened on FRA14 if you can use that to fix it. Guess I'm gonna suck it up and wait for the change, not worth wasting time on the report tbh.

    I miss the old days of the ROE system. At least that took care of people who decided to be jerks in game. FF within the first few seconds of the round got you sent to Leavenworth. Sure, sometimes it was an accident, but oh well, don't be stupid.
    You joined the world's greatest army to become a graphic artist? Outstanding!

    take it easy.. most priv servers wont be using this option anyway


  • =IK=SgtBadazz=IK=SgtBadazz Posts: 160Player
    Most of the best competition is on officials right now though because madmins and many privates are set up with weird settings like 2+ revives, incap spectate, SSHD, etc.

    So much for talking to people during 1v1s as your trying to populate the server.

    Hey, that's a really good point. I do that too...! Hmm.

    This has been a test of the emergency flame-fest system. Please do not adjust your set.

    I'm guessing the whole "report abuse and we will take care of it" part didn't work so now instead of banning the individuals you take the community aspect away from official servers by removing communication with the enemy team all together. Makes sense. I always did enjoy running into old friends or making new ones via chat or voip when they're on the opposing team. Oh well, private servers it is then..
