WARNING: Watchdog will trigger in 4 seconds

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I was trying to help Grape with a problem.

 

He connected to another server, he

downloaded the .pk3 files from that server as usual... after that he couldn't

connect to NoobsForever. Later he relaunched the game and the initialization

console showed the following message:

 

"

--- Common Initialization

Complete ---

Working directory: /Applications/Wolfenstein ET

WARNING:

watchdog will trigger in 4 seconds

Idle Server with no map - triggering

watchdog

Sys_ShutdownNetworking();

logout

 

[Process

completed]

 

"

 

Then the application quitted

unexpectedly!

 

Help! the only thing that comes to my mind is to reinstall

ET on his computer!<BR clear="all">

You sure he is trying to launch game using ET.exe and not ETDED.exe ?

Do you know if the server is hosted by gameservers.com? If so, they have a new system called watchdog in place. This is what it looks like in the admin panel:

Irrelevant :)

 

Watchdog is a part of the ET server. Basically a system that makes sure the server is running some map at all times == not running mapless, which sometimes happens. Might be a standard Q3 engine thing, don't know. The client does not use watchdog though... only in dedicated server mode.
