Omni-bots crashing server

Recommended Posts

My server has been crashing recently which I believe is down to the omnibots (runs fine without them).

 

According to the host, the server continues running, but in a crashed state, rendering it unplayable.

 

The console.log file ends just as a bot joins the game. Note that this does not always happen, just a couple of times every 24 hours):

I am running 2.55, which I guess is the problem.

 

I've got the server relatively popular in 2.55, and am reluctant to move to 2.6 as it would mean populating the server from scratch.

 

However, I would be willing to upgrade the server if it would fix the problem. The only thing in the back of my mind, is if I go through the trouble of upgrading it to 2.6b, then finding the same thing happens there.

 

Is this a known problem with running omni-bots in 2.55, or is the problem down to other reasons?

 

Server info:

 

ETPub 0.7.2

Omni-Bot 0.532

version = ET 2.55 linux-i386 Jun 24 2003

 

Note: the same happens, but more frequently, with ETPub 0.8.1 + Omni-bot 0.66

 

Omnibots logs also show nothing out of the ordinary.

 

Thanks in advance,

BlackWolf.

There is I think is an issue with 255 and bots. I know the argument and its still no reason not upgrade imho. Ever wonder why 255 is that popular?

I've heard of alot of people with problems with omnibots under 2.5x. I have never run omnibots myself so I have no experience with them, but I don't believe they were ever intended or supported on >2.60.

I'm going to upgrade the server to 2.6b. I'm also interested in putting the theory "It's harder to populate a server in 2.6" to the test.

 

Thanks for you assistance,

BlackWolf.
