Title: I can not log into servers
Post by: lu2b3l on January 09, 2017, 08:20:12 am

Hello, i have not been able to get into the most crowded servers for a few weeks, have noticed that they are the ones that start with 62. I do not know what can be done, i tried to reinstall the game and it stays the same,  click it To the server and kicks me out of the game, I've been playing games for years from an IMAC, i do not know what can be due, i'd appreciate someone helping me.
Thank you
a greeting

Could you please give a look to your command console output and tell us if it mentions some error? Or maybe you may export console log to a file...
(DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Command_console

Note: Reinstalling the game does clear you "basepath" folder, but does not clear your "homepath" folder.

With "the ones which start with 62" do you mean the first part of their IP address?

Yes, it's the servers that start with the IP: 62. ... is to click the server and i throw the game, the other servers if go, is my doubt, I do not know if I banned or what is the problem, i do not understand much of what you say to console commands, sorry, if you can detail me more thank you, thanks Gig

About the console, I was asking you about exporting Console log tohave more clies about what happens.
(DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Command_console#Console_log

However, could you please better describe "kick me out of the game"? Does it bring you back to OA main screen? Does it show some kind of message before that?

About homepath in Mac, maybe this helps: (DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Homepath#Where_are_the_configuration_files_saved.3F

If that really throws you out from the game instead of just to main menu, it looks like a real program crash.
Maybe those servers are using a mod where you have wrong settings in your configuration file?

Could you please copy-paste the URLs about those specific servers (example: http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena&server=87.230.95.165:27960) taking them from master server web interface: http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena ?

Uhm... they end up being many servers which are actually run by few people, due to having only three different IP addresses. Not that this can explain what happens... just that there may be a common cause.

Some of them seem to be using excessiveplus mod, but others seem to not be using it.
What happens if you try to play excessiveplus mod locally? Does it work?

Do you mean is crashes the game the same way, completely closing it?

Tried a few of those servers (with the help of OAWire (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/oawire/) Firefox extension):

http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena&server=62.75.152.253:27960
This one does completely freeze the game (let's say crash) also for me, on Windows (on "awaiting game state" phase). I had to terminate the process. I have no idea about the reason.

This one gives me "invalid pk3 files". Maybe I have DO NOT LINK[/b]) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Autodownload]autodownload (http://([b) off in that mod, I haven't checked.

This one autodownloaded a small mod which shows additional stats in the HUD, and then worked.

This gave me "invalid pk3 files". So I tried setting "/cl_allowdownload 1" and then "/reconnect", but they have a problem with their HTTP autodownload server: grabbing the files failed with 404 (file not found) error.
