New requirement for CoD4 X servers to get listed on masterserver

Recommended Posts

Because of recent spamming events on the masterserver we had to implement some sophisticated way to stop people from spamming their servers when they have available a large number of different IP-addresses.

Gameservers need to prove now on registration at masterserver to have set a valid token in cvar sv_authtoken. If they can not prove to have this token they get rejected on masterserver. This requires a new version (17.6) of CoD4 X server you can download from the front-page. However the new version of CoD4 X server could still be less stable than the prior version as the core design is really new.

Do I need a token? Well if your server is still listed on http://cod4master.cod4x.me/ you don't need a token and don't need new serverversion yet unless you change your IP address.

 

Where do I get this token? You get it on: https://cod4master.cod4x.me/ and click the link "Get a Token". Here you need an unlimited and clean Steam account.

What can I do with that token? Well you can either put into your server's commandline:

+set sv_authtoken "mytokenhere"

Or you edit your server.cfg file and add:

set sv_authtoken "mytokenhere"

Of course you need the new server-version to use tokens.

 

Can I use this token on multiple servers?

Yes this token is supposed to be used on all gameservers you own. Creating a new token will disable your old one.

 

The requirement to obtain a token can be changed if we have to believe this is not sufficient anymore and our service gets still frequently abused.

Can not register server on the masterserver. Server needs to provide a valid token in cvar sv_authtoken.

that doesn't look like an auth token provided by our website, that is your steamid. read the post again and follow the instructions.

it only works with an unlimited steam account. that means: you must have at least spent 5$ on it. https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3330-IAGK-7663

is that your account? if it's not show me yours. (you can pm it too if you are not comfortable posting it publicly) this one doesn't have any games on it. if you just purchased it, it might take some time to update your account status.

I am not sure if this is still the case, i think that limited steam accounts can not send friend requests. If thats the case then the easiest way to find out if u have an unlimited steam account is to try to send to 1 of your buddies a friend request. If u are able to do it then u have an unlimited steam account.

@eppie do not post public your token, somebody else could get your token and use it for bad things and then your token could be blacklisted/banned and your server will be not listed on the master server, keep your token always hidden from others, that's your top secret "password" to get listed on master server.

Make sure that u put the token inside quotes in your server.cfg file

Correct

set sv_authtoken "mytokenhere"

Incorrect

set sv_authtoken mytokenhere

can't the spam server owner just not update to 17.6 which would keep them on the masterlist and fine, a lot of people wont even update to 17.6 since they already run their server fine, is this going to be enforced in anyway?

all legit server IPs are whitelisted. new IPs will require authentication via a steam account. old spam servers are of course not on the white list.
