RoK: Whitelist is being turned off

Now that the EAC update has been released we're going to see how things go with the whitelist disabled.

Everyone who has been whitelisted before will stay on there and if the whitelist needs to be turned back on you'll be able to keep playing with no problems :)
 

RoK: Server updated to Alpha 11

http://steamcommunity.com/app/344760/discussions/4/611702631243949548/

This update contains some major backend changes to help prevent hacking. We have integrated Easy Anti Cheat (EAC) with the game, and you will be required to install it before running the game. EAC will run in the background after you launch Reign of Kings, when you are done playing, EAC will stop running. We felt it was best to have a major anti-hacking solution on our side while we also work to prevent exploits and hacks on our end. We also included another layer of our own hack prevention in this update aside from EAC. You will now also be required to agree to our EULA before playing the game. We hope everyone understands that we are doing our best to prevent hacking, and we hope some of these solutions help out. We will continue to make this our top priority in the near future.

http://www.easyanticheat.net/

Do not risk hacking/exploiting the game, as this may result in your account being permanently banned through the EAC system. Bans will be delivered in waves, we will not speculate on the exact timing.

As with the last update - Due to the current anti-hacking layers, modding of the game is not permitted at this time, this would include language packs or other localization attempts. Please verify the integrity of your game cache and keep your DLLs and game files unmodified to avoid unwanted banning or being added to a ban list. If you are unsure you can verify your game files through steam by selecting "Verify Integrity of Game Cache..." in your game's properties under "Local Files".

If you are experiencing problems with users connecting to your server (stuck on downloading characters), clear your permission file. The permission file is located under the Configuration folder next to your ROK.exe.

Looking forward to the next week, our main focus will once again be on hack prevention, and also on performance.

This update also includes many bug fixes, design changes, and some new features like a trap door & furniture. You can find the full list below.

RoK: Update Coming Soon


Stay tuned, we will be updating and wiping the server as soon as possible.
 

A year later

It's been a little over a year since our last update and we're now finally getting things moving. In the coming weeks we should have a new site, improved forums and we'll be a lot more active. We'll also be looking for staff for some of our servers that are in dire need.

Once things are closer to being finished I will post a changelog and a list of things we plan to do in the future.

Cheers
 

RoK: Server will be wiping at 15:30 UTC

We'll be wiping the map today at 15:30 UTC.

If there is another patch soon we'll also be wiping then, I know having the server wipe so often is awkward but it's necessary due to the state of the game.

I'll be updating the rules/info thread soon and it'll include the criteria for us to wipe the server so we won't need to have this discussion in the future.
 

RoK Update Alpha 10

Server has been updated to Alpha 10

RoK Update Alpha 10
This update is a bit of a smaller one as it is mainly bug fixes and some design changes. There is also a new small layer of anti-hack prevention, servers can turn it on through their configuration file. Official servers are also being wiped with this release (we recommend community servers to wipe, but it is their choice).

Unfortunately, the major anti-hacking work that is going on at the studio was not ready in time for the weekend. We understand that hacking remains a major issue, and we are working our hardest to help prevent it, it is our top priority.

The integration of EasyAntiCheat is coming very well, our engineers have been working with the EAC engineers to ensure it is integrated correctly. We hope to have it released in the next week or two. As well, we have another major layer of hack prevention coming from our own studio to allign with the release of EAC. We thank everyone for their patience.

As with the last update - Due to the current anti-hacking layers, modding of the game is not permitted at this time, this would include language packs or other localization attempts. Please verify the integrity of your game cache and keep your DLLs and game files unmodified to avoid unwanted banning or being added to a ban list. If you are unsure you can verify your game files through steam by selecting "Verify Integrity of Game Cache..." in your game's properties under "Local Files".

RoK: Cheater on the server, taking it down for a moment.

Working on finding out who it is, I may have to revert some access to some people I've whitelisted recently, please bear with me.

EDIT: Banned him shortly afterwards. It may not be over though!
 

RoK: Updated to Alpha 9

Small update but I can create wooden pyramids easier now ¦^) Server is updating as I type this

http://steamcommunity.com/app/344760/discussions/4/611702631206794950/
Were doing a small update on the game today. Servers do not need to be wiped for this update, however, be sure to update your community servers so everyone can connect to them. This should help keep your lobby lists functioning with an previous copy incase the live lobby server is swamped. A good portion of the team was attending to the lobby server during the DDoS attacks, another portion of the team is attending to the Easy Anti-Cheat integration, so this update isn't very big or exciting.

Changes:

- Clients will now save a copy of their last successful lobby query. When a query fails, this copy is loaded for reference.
- The lobby will now allow you to connect to other game versions, however the server will still deny the wrong version. (See above)
- Sorting the lobby by player count now favours online players over capacity.
- Console messages are now limited to 128 characters.
- Symbols have been removed from chat. Colours, bold, underline, etc...

Design Changes:

- Wood blocks now 40 wood.
- Log blocks now 80 wood.

Fixes:

- Flask no longer tethered to left hand after gathering water
- Its no longer possible to capture throne after dying next to throne while still in a capture pop up menu

Thanks for playing,
The Code}{atch Team
 

RoK: Server is whitelisted!

RoK: Get Whitelisted!


Server will be whitelisted in the coming days (hopefully tonight) due to cheaters, we'll try to get as many people applied as possible before we make the switch.

It will be unwhitelisted again at some point but all those who have been whitelisted will stay that way. This means when we turn the whitelist on in the future you'll be able to keep playing the server.

This way, if a future patch allows servers to be griefed easily or a new cheat is released, we can cut down on the amount of people coming in to cause trouble.
 

RoK: Updated to Alpha 8

Before connecting, please validate your steam files. Looks like cheaters will still be around. You can use /report <name> or hop onto TeamSpeak if you suspect anyone.

http://steamcommunity.com/games/344760/announcements/detail/225518331483052105
Due to the entire team mainly working on hack prevention, admin/server commands, performance, and fixes, there was only very small amounts of new content.

New Content:

- Added Djembe Drum, use scroll wheel to change pitch
- Added War Drum, use scroll wheel to change pitch

New Features:

- The All Servers lobby tab has been replaced by Favourite and Visited server tabs.
- Lobby columns can be sorted alphabetically.
- Lobby items can be right-clicked to favourite.
- Players can now search for visited and favourite servers.

- Made it so the Auto-Restart script says Restarting... instead of shutdown.
- Server bans now save even after server restarts. Admins may also ban offline players.
- Added admin command /shownametags
- Added admin commands to tp users to other users and tp users to yourself.
- Added a setting in the config file to disable admin commands on a server (it is on by default)

- Added a /whitelist command to block anonymous player connections while enabled.
/whitelist - Will show all whitelisted players.
/whitelist enable - Will enable the whitelist.
/whitelist disable - Will disable the whitelist.
/whitelist add [id] - Will add a player by Steam ID.
/whitelist addbyname [name] - Will add a player by name (this must resolve an ID).
/whitelist remove [id] - Will remove a player by Steam ID.
/whitelist removebyname [name] - Will remove a player by name (this must resolve an ID).

- To help admins banning players with unusual names we added a small player list button at the bottom left of the screen while typing into the chat console. Clicking on the player list button will show all the players currently online, and clicking on a name will insert that name into your current chat input. With this, admins can ban a player as easy as typing in "/ban " into the console, selecting the player you want to ban from the player list button, and hitting enter to complete the command. Remember that copy, paste, and highlighting the console is all possible too, just like notepad.

- Added a setting in the config file to enable/disable auto-banning of suspected hackers (it is off by default, configure with caution):
To properly ensure that the AutoBan feature is enabled and working properly, you can first set useAuthAutoBan = 'True' in the ServerSettings.cfg. Once this is set, the server will compare its own steam and game DLL files with the clients dll files. If any of these files aren't exactly the same as the client's, the server will ban that client. Because of this you need to make extra sure that your steam dlls are updated to be the same as the clients, and have no extra or modified DLLs in your ROK_data/Managed folder. If your clients get banned from you server with "Detected DLL Mismatch", rechecking the similarity of your client / server dlls should be the first course of action. If you accidentally configured this on your server, as an admin, you can unban someone in-game by typing in "unban player_name_here" (Where player_name_here is the name of the player you want to unban). Alternatively you can remove the entry including their name in the BannedPlayers.cfg configuration file (found under your Configuration folder), which will allow the banned player to rejoin once the server has restarted.


Fixes:

- Change offsets on projectiles to hopefully make less floating action
- Removed a bug where trebuchet stones would be spawned on newly logging clients
- Fixed door desyncing
- Fix a bug in security which could have broke some ownership
- Made it so blocks can be placed behind crests
- Crest lights turn on in conquered zones
- Players who are forcefully removed from the throne while usurping will now properly release it.
- Starvation and dehydration has been re-balanced.
- Double-clicking items into fires should more intelligently choose between the fuel or input container.
- Enabled console backgrounds will no longer show while idle.
- Player voice chat (VOIP) will no longer be set to 0 volume on login.
- Improved animations
- Improved syncing interpolation
- Smoother movement, looking, less likely to push players when things get laggy

Design Changes:

- All block building materials had their required resources to craft increased.
- Increase the cost of Trebuchet, ballista and trebuchet stone’s
- Animals are no longer placeable through blueprints by admins (Temporary)
- Melee weapons no longer damage tier 5/6/7 ramps and stairs
- Stiff Bed is slightly smaller

Optimizations & Performance:

- Major Serverside framerate optimizations
- Block loading is faster
- Block loading has less memory garbage
- Lowered the amount of colliders on the server for various items
- Make progressive loading of pages demand less performance to not clog the server up so much
- Removed flying creatures from spawn as we further diagnose server performance (Temporary)
- Fixed a bug that caused huge clientside frame rate drops when looking at interactables in certain situations
- Minor garbage collection reduction

EDIT: Expect cheaters to be rampant in this phase too, it's far from over ¦^)

RoK: Update coming soon

The RoK developers have said that they're working to get the update out late tonight, we'll be updating the server and wiping the map as soon as this happens.

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=748033885310461&id=718197874960729
We are still working on the hack issues, work is going well, will be taking care many of the current hacking issues with the upcoming update. However, it will be an ongoing battle, and we feel the next few weeks will grant larger progress as more robust solutions become integrated. Were sorry that some of you have bad experiences from hackers, and hope you can remain patient as we work on it.

We've also made huge ground this last week on server performance issues too, this too will be included in upcoming update. We are working tomorrow to see if we can have it ready for late Saturday, been pushing late overtime every night for past few weeks as we really love the game and want players to have a good experience.

We'll add a couple more admins once we update too.
 

Site updates

We're completely revamping the site and adding new game servers so there may be a few bugs! We're smoothing them out.

Once we're done we should have a much better server list, homepage and better site in general.

Updates

Credits on the site have been updated and reset.
Theme is being messed with.
 

Servers

Updated server list coming soon! :)
 

Aggression is back

New server

Done.

We'll be moving the site to a more powerful server within the next day, we'll make a post on the new site when it's all switched out,
 

1.1 Update Out

Server updated, map was reset to get the lovely new biomes.
 

Folding - For Science

[email protected] is a project started by a group of Stanford scientists which uses are unused computer processor cycles to fold proteins. BoN now has an open group that participates in this project.



Group



Client



What is Folding?



Folding is the process of folding proteins to see why, and how they fold in order to cure diseases. When these proteins fold, they sometimes do not fold correctly, causing diseases such as Alzheimer's. One of the outcomes of this project is to hopefully create synthetic polymers to carry out the same processes as the proteins, but do them with nano-technology instead of using the diseased protein.

Basically, proteins are folded, then observed, and then artificially recreated.

Why should I fold?



The first reason you should fold is because it helps with the advancement of medical research. You may have a family member or friend with a disease that can be cured by folding. You can also help the population in general by stopping these diseases from existing in future generations.

The second reason you should fold is because it doesn't interfere with your regular procesing. When you use your computer, you don't necssarily use up all of the processor. [email protected] uses the unused cycles of your processor and doesn't interfere with your daily work. It just leeches on your unused processing power. This is a very good idea if your computer is left on over night without anything to do.
 

Aggression down

Aggression is currently down, pending issues with the datacenter who hosts it.

Please be patient, we are fixing this as fast as we can.



In the meantime our events server is still up!

Head over to events.bowlofnoodles.net for some more minecrafting!



Sorry for the inconvience



Edit: 8pm (GMT+8) Server back up

  • Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts.
  • We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate BoN community standards. The BoN team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (The mature area is exempt to the sexual part of this rule)
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules.
  • Impersonating a staff member's signature or name

Advertising Services and Solicitation



We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Explicit advertising and soliciting in signatures is also prohibited.



Links in signatures must follow these guidelines



  • A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate Bowl Of Noodles community standards. The BoN team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
  • Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
  • All signatures must be made in English

Avatars



  • Avatars that may be confused with official staff avatars are not allowed.

Ban Appeal Threads:



  • You may not post more than one ban appeal per ban
  • You may not argue against an Admin's decision
  • You may not post your opinion of someone else's ban appeal.

Signature Size Limits



All signatures should not exceed the following limits

  • For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • Do not use images with large text to bypass the previous item
  • For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size

Moderation



Although the administrators and moderators of Bowl Of Noodles will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and not the owners of Bowl Of Noodles.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.



Staff Disputes



Any disputes with the staff of the BoN community forum will be handled by private message to The_Noodle



Addendum



We reserve the right to update and modify these rules as the needs of the community dictate to ensure the smooth operation of this community.

Copied from home BoN forums, as a general reference. Really these should not need to be here, but hey, some people don't understand common courtesy.
 

Small Changes

I am making small forum changes over the next few weeks, this thread will list them for reference.



-Changed CSS hierarchy for styling on BoN Staff/Moderating groups. Moderating is now "4" instead of "900" and BoN Staff is "5". This averts issues with people who have blue portraits also having blue names.
