Good job! :smile: Yeah, these sqlite databases (!) and new ACS commands would be useful, but...
- The new CVAR sv_forcelogintojoin (default false) can prevent unauthenticated players from joining the game (they can still connect as spectators).
I know that some servers will force you to register. Since this day... Welcome to Zdaenum!

And as a result you'll get something like this...
REGISTER OR GTFO

REGISTER OR GTFO
Enjoy!
Where on BE have we ever forced people to make an account to play on the servers (keyword: playing, not hosting)?

I'm not sure if I understand the optional user account thing. Can someone explain how it would work to me in terms that even a complete computer illiterate moron can understand?

Why do you think BE would do this in the future?

It's still in the testing phases, I believe you can log into a server from the command line, so your client will somehow authenticate with the server your connecting to -- which proves you are who you say you are (for the most part unless you get hacked).

This would allow a server to save your stats/weapons/points/whatever between sessions and allow you to pick up where you left off without someone pretending to be you.

Right now... as I said: still in the testing phase. 1.4 or 2.0 will have a more streamlined approach.

Thanks for reply, I would definitely try it with client on my own machine but can't do that with zandronum-server unfortunately. I've tried it before, but without linux kernel module enabled on my host I can't do much. Tried forcing it anyway but I got missing dependencies and ELF interpreters.

Is it possible to compile it?

Yes, but server-only. (using -DSERVERONLY flag or something like that)

Decided to give it a try, and guess what. It actually compiled with no problems.
I used this repo and this wiki guide, if anyone's interested.
Thanks for help!

Dude, in the account system and user stats thread they've clearly and several times stated that the account system will be optional. Why do you mind anyway?

Are you sure that you're using an auth server compatible with the 7/6/2014 version of the protocol? Try "authhostname zandroauthtest.oscillicious.com:16666". This one works fine for me. You can create an account with the link in the first post.

Strange. Switching to 16666 works fine for me, see above.
Found the issue, the authentication hostname can only be set on server boot. Changing it mid-run has no effect.

Maybe this is a good thing? After all, we can only get people's username, if anybody can switch the authentication server out from under the server it might confuse mods or other admins. I'll continue the conversation in a bug.

The only limit to my freedom is the inevitable closure of the
universe, as inevitable as your own last breath. And yet,
there remains time to create, to create, and escape.

Escape will make me God.

I love baseless speculation!!!

In addition to requiring all users to register, you will also need to link your Facebook, Google+, and Twitter accounts to connect to BE servers.

Once users have linked the three aforementioned social websites to their respective BE account, users will be presented with the option to sign up for a mandatory monthly subscription to play on BE servers (Bronze which allows 2 hours of playtime a day at $4.99, silver which allows 4 hours of playtime at $8.99, and gold which allows 8 hours of playtime for $13.99).

After users have selected one of our BE Premium™ plans, they will be able to experience the full entertainment suite that Zandronum has to offer!

Remember to disregard the fact that we've provided community based servers for two years without asking for anything in return! Also, don't forget to deny that BE is actually open source, so you could host your own! Oh that's right, you don't actually care though, so it doesn't matter!

Why not Free-to-Play? It's the biggest money making scheme today! Want to pick up that Rocket Launcher? You must pay $1.50 or wait 14 hours in real time! Want to advanced to the next map? You must pay $1.85 or wait 48 hours in real time!

My heart sank a bit on making this post....

I think I figured this one out. I was having the same problem, but I was setting the authhostname AFTER my Zandronum server was started, which doesn't appear to work.

If I start the Zandronum server with "+authhostname zandroauthtest.oscillicious.com:16666 +sv_forcelogintojoin 1", then it works.... !

Edit: .... aaaaaaand I just refreshed and saw AlexMax beat me to it. :)

Oh fuck yes! Can't wait to try it! Of course I'll let you know if there's any bug.

Will you merge this version plus the ZDoom updates?
