Reset of XP Totals

Postby Htos1 » 07 Oct 2021, 00:18

This question is for the mods of the ETC servers.
Why was my cumulative XP score just suddenly reset to zero? I have never received a warning about my game play, it took 13 years to achieve a score of >150k XP. I checked with all the other Nitmod servers and all my scoring is intact there. I don't understand you had to erase my scores and XP. Did I piss you off somehow?
99% of my visits were to the sniper server. I generally don't chit chat or say hello, just my nature, nothing against you.
Let me know, and if you legit just don't like my game play, say so! Be truthful.
And I'll never visit nor contribute again.
Thanks for your time on this.

Hi,

nobody reset your xp´s.

It looks like you changed very often your nkey.dat file, its located in nitmod folder.

I've had the same nkey.dat file for MANY years, would you care to do a forensic check? Time/date stamping is intact. You have a problem with the server, I saw >18 slots of "megafrank" on the axis side and ONE bot on the allies side. I've changed NOTHING in >13 years on the server playing, shame as ETC was my fav server until a few days ago.

About the botnames, a member renamed the botnames for fun. I dont know the reason.

Yeah, that makes sense. I have admin'ed servers since the 90's so I recognize tampering when I see it. I would greatly appreciate it if I could have my score restored. I don't remember it exactly, just that it was north of 150k XP.
Here is the archive of my ET keys showing the last modified time/date stamps. They have never updated since v2.60b

Hey,
Sometimes it helps if you run ET as administrator.
Right click on .exe file and select Run as administrator.

Cheers :cookie:

Thanks Ruby, it's not that. It started all of a sudden one day last week out of the blue. Jay DID fix the server but it reset me AGAIN at zero, but is saving fine NOW after that. Also I noticed the old error where you connect @ 2.00mbps speed then it backs down quickly to dial-up speed and never gets any faster. I'm thinking hard about the Htos apache server for ET. And see if i can start a list of fixes for everyone. Enterprise IT was just my day job, I never did anything for gaming, but have reached retirement this year, that may change drastically. Just because.... 8-)

The server IS working again properly reading the ndat.key files on client machines, but not after I was reset to zero, again.

Hey Jay!
The server is fully working again, but didn't keep my restored XP totals that you restored.
Please help! :sad:
