Default NOOB - BOTS Spectate Only - 16-11-2010

Hi Everyone,
I have tried to find an answer to this, but my searching has found nothing.
Ive loaded the Metamod and Podbot. The server kicks over and starts, i can connect as a player. I can add and remove bots from the console.... however, they only go into spectate.

am i missing something really simple here???

I ran the updates for steam, i downloaded the latest version of podbot...

im running on a UBUNTU Linux box with plenty of memory and processing power

Here is what im seeing when the server starts...


Code:
Auto detecting CPU
Using AMD Optimised binary.

I would say there is something incorect with Your steam. I haven't seen such message on my server nor from someone else's log. I would recommend to reinstall the steam.

Reinstalling now...

I saw that also, did some research on that error but nobody out there in the world thought that it was a problem.

Lets see what I get after reinstall....

Cheers!

Reinstalled in a different directory.
Same message as before. this is a Linux server. i am kicking off the server as
Code:
 sudo ./hlds_run . . .
the process is running as root. and im not getting anything showing up in my security logs...

The server runs. I can go on, the bots are added to the system (see above) but sit in spectate mode and dont join.

i assume you didnt see anything wrong with the "meta list" info...

anything else you can think of?

Please check - if You - as a human - can play on that server normally.
Is this steam or no-steam? The log suggest it's a steam server, but maybe I'm wrong...

its a steam server. and I can connect and run and shoot as a player. no issues. when i press tab I can see all the bots sitting in the spectator.

tried map change... nothing, tried restart round ... nada

maybe my bots are just lazy??

Now I see that other folks have a mod AMX X in place. do I need it?

finally - According to the STEAM user forums the message that i am receiving in the console is "normal" and does not cause game play issues.
http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...al+steamclient

as for non-optimized AMD binary, This is the install the steam installer gave me. Now, there is a different AMD binary for 64 bit, but that isnt for me. But As i read posts over at steam, the installer auto configs according to processor. So i think the answer is, it is what it is....

What is the output of this command:
(...)\hlds>hldsupdatetool -command version

By (...) I mean the beginning of the path to Your hldsupdatetool.
I hope You are not using beta update for Your HLDS which causes troubles for many users.
You don't need to use AMX MOD X to run podbot mm correctly.

BTW - my win32 HLDS version says
Protocol version 48
Exe version 1.1.2.6/2.0.961.786 (cstrike)
Exe build: 14:21:06 Mar 8 2010 (4554)
The build number is earlier than Your one, that's why I'm not sure if You are using the same version of HLDS (despite if Your is linux - mine - Windows). I'll check later on my test linux server what both commands are saying about the build version.

Howdy....
when i run the hldsupdatetool.bin -command version i get ...

Code:
brian@SweFinNet:/usr/games/steam$ sudo ./hldsupdatetool.bin -command version
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'c'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'o'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'm'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'm'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'a'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'n'
./hldsupdatetool.bin: invalid option -- 'd'
but when i run the steam -command version (where this may be a difference between windows and linux - as the steam runfile is created from the hldsupdate.bin)

Code:
brian@SweFinNet:/usr/games/steam$ sudo ./steam -command version
Bootstrapper version: 40
Versions installed in '.':
        Half-Life Base Content: 12
        Linux Server Engine: 55
        Counter-Strike Base Content: 35
CAsyncIOManager: 0 threads terminating.  0 reads, 0 writes, 0 deferrals.
CAsyncIOManager: 9 single object sleeps, 0 multi object sleeps
CAsyncIOManager: 0 single object alertable sleeps, 0 multi object alertable sleeps
Now when the server starts it shows these build id's...
Code:
Console initialized.
scandir failed:/usr/games/steam/./valve/SAVE
scandir failed:/usr/games/steam/./platform/SAVE
Protocol version 48
Exe version 1.1.2.6/Stdio (cstrike)
Exe build: 16:56:04 Mar  8 2010 (4883)
it looks like the code version is the same for both..Exe version 1.1.2.6/Stdio (cstrike)

But the build might be different based on the platform differences (win vs. linux)
is that what you were looking for?
