VCStarter v1.6: Graphical improvements
sonic
I had similar problem (with pathfinding), mostly in mission Papa Oscar Whiskey (Válečný zajatec), where AI keeps going forward and back (always happens to Nhut at point where we have to kill 2 guards above the village). I can not say if it is Vietcong, VCStarter or Wine issue.

As Brchi warned us in his last message, VCG_Freddy noticed that VCStarter and VCGuard links are dead. Since both VCStarter files (1.7 + 1.65) are missing in the download section, it would be great if someone could upload them there (I can upload it on moddb.com for example, but I think it would be nice to have it also here). Unfortunatelly, I dont have any of those VCGuard 12.1b files...

Thank you for the report sonic! Smile

I've uploaded the 2 main files in our Downloads section (Tools) and linked them also to the first Brchi's post.

Fortunately I do have the latest VCGuard 12.1 BETA version files. I attached the dpnhpast.dll file which is the tool itself. VCGuard.ini with proper options is required as well!

The following is the complete content of VCGuard.ini with instructions by Brchi and additional description by me.
Most options are left unchanged with the exception of "queryip". When I set it to 46.28.109.117 (Vietcong1.eu master server) the server displayed error message and wouldn't start up.

Download source  Code

// VCGuard Final v12.1 BETA by Brchi
// !!! EXPERIMENTAL TOOL !!!
// www.TheArchiFamily.com
// Contact: admin@thearchifamily.com
// Also visit www.Vietcong.info


// DESCRIPTION
// DOESN'T (cannot) work against all cheats!
// Many bug/crash-fixes and added features.
// To send a command by an external program,
// send IDOK to the focused edit box (equaling enter).

// INSTALL
// Put all files into the Vietcong directory.
// (At least this file, dpnhpast, msvcp120 and msvcr120).
// Better not use any modded dlls or exes.
// Modify the options below to your needs.
// Start the server normally by the original vcded.exe (Can be renamed).
// It will load dpnhpast.dll, which is the vcguard program.
// Only for Vietcong v1.6, Win XP and newer, 32/64.

// ATTENTION
// Don't set a server password when starting up, set it afterwards or the server won't start up.
// Doesn't work with HradBa, so keep it disabled.

// USAGE
// Commands are entered either into the server console (editbox) or via ingame chat (not the F12 ingame console!).
// They always begin with a dot (.command). Some options can be changed by commands. Use the .help command to list them.
// If you want to use the .slots command, be sure to set max. players to 64 in launcher/dedfile.
// Don't modify the banlist/rangelist.txt files while the server is running. Instead, use the proper commands to modify.
// Playerlist columns can be sorted.

// TIPS
// Set the loopsleep option to gain about 100 Server FPS (9ms for example), causes less cpu usage and the gaming performance is still fine.
// There is a "ctf schedule", means respawn time according to number of players. Check the sample file schedules\aztec32.sch.
// For every line: Left (number of players), Right (respawn time in seconds). If respawn time empty, use previous value.
// The .sch file must contain at least as many player numbers (lines) as there are player slots!
// Several logs are created in the logs\ directory: banlog, shutdown, connections, cmdlog, crashlog, udplog, blocked, dbglog1, noguilog.
// cmdlog/dbglog1 is just for testing, crash/udplog can be useful to fix crashes and blocked.txt logs blocked network attacks.
// If nogui-mode is enabled, errors are logged to noguilog.txt instead of showing message boxes.

// OPTIONS
// Don't remove any options, don't change their names. Don't remove any parameters, just change them!

// MACROS
// Macros (sequence of commands, see example macros\mapchange.txt) can be executed by ".macro Filename Time Interval Repeat" command (File extension can be omitted).
// There are four possible variations:
// .macro Filename
// .macro Filename Time
// .macro Filename Interval Repeat
// .macro Filename Time Interval Repeat
// Filename: don't use spaces. Time: local, 24h format hh:mm. Interval: seconds (1 to 86400). Repeat: count (1 to 86400 or INF (infinite)) (Repeat 1 = executed 2x in total).
// You can use any ptero or vcguard command in the macro file, line by line. There are two special commands: SLEEP X (seconds) and SILENT (don't show executed commands in console).
// Example: .macro srvmsg 60 INF (Executes the macro macros\srvmsg.txt every 60 seconds in an infinite loop).
// Example: .macro mapchange 15:00 (Executes the macro macros\mapchange.txt once at 15:00 local time).
// Use .macrolist and .macrostop to control executions.

// UPDATE 10.1
// Added new commands: addban, addrange, banrange,
// unbanrange, rangelist, clearbans, clearranges.
// (Better not ban too many ranges, you can use the
// connections log to check how common a range is)
// Some fixes.

// UPDATE 10.2
// Added country to playerlist/banlist and some logs (Download ip2nation.sql from www.ip2nation.com and put it into the Vietcong directory).
// Added "nogui"-mode to create a log (noguilog.txt) instead of showing message boxes on errors (Create an empty nogui.txt file to activate this).
// Added close prompt to avoid accidental closing.
// Added buttons to copy name/ip of selected player.
// Improved playerlist sorting/update performance.
// (No new options added here. You can use the old ini file)

// No description available for later updates, sorry


// THE FOLLOWING ARE PRESET OPTIONS WITH DESCRIPTION. YOU REALLY SHOULD CUSTOMIZE THESE TO FIT YOUR NEEDS!

title = SERVER-WINDOW-TITLE      // Server window title (not server name) to distinguish between multiple servers

// Multiline join message, begin a new line with §, leave all empty behind = to disable and show normal message.

joinmsg = Your join message here § new line

objectvalidate = 0            // Invalid object ID (Exploit #6)
dplayvalidate = 1            // Fix DirectPlay exploiting (experimental)





Interestingly, some options were set to 0 by Brchi. I have no idea why, thus I left them unchanged.
