I must at first this host look really promising - and I am sure they will remove this even though it is 100% true once the mods see it - but I also posted the following at several gaming sites I am a part of.

Mattie Event Scripts Boards
WCS Mod Boards
WCSPython Boards
PVKII Boards
HOBNW Lan Boards

All of the above sites get thousands of hits per day so even if it is removed from here it will still be plenty out there.

I am still currently looking for a PVKII server and I had stumbled across this server host, www.dragongameservers.com , on google.

First off it should have been a sign when they set up my server and never told me when it was online... I had to stumble around on their webpage - which is poorly designed and uses 3 different logins for their forums, billing/server control, and support tickets - to find out that it had indeed been online and I could have began configing it sooner.

I took the time to upload ES2.0, ESTools .420, and the 3 scripts I wanted (my D&DS I am working on, xA, and errorlogger) then when I clicked start nothing happened... I soon got an email saying that my server had been stopped due to multipul crashes. I figured hey it must be one of my scripts... so I removed all es_load commands form my autoexec.cfg...

Nope it is still dumping...

So I get a email from one of their admins telling my it is ESTools dumping the box - ok fine. I see the box is running windows... so I offer up this link - http://forums.mattie.info/cs/forums/viewtopic.php?t=14596 - their tech says he already did this and it was my fault for uploading bad ESTools files... which is funny because I uploaded the same files that run fine on my home server...

Here are the last emails I sent him and then I got back:

Alrighty then so basically Eventscripts/ESTools will not work on your server boxes? sad.gif

If this is the case is there any sort of refund policy for non-used servers?

Eventscripts/ESTools do work on our machines we have many happy customers utilizing these addons, but since that is what you wish we have refunded the unused portion of your bill.


Too be fair I now see that the crash fix for ESTools does not work with .419+ but their unwillingness to work to get something working that already runs on thousands of servers is rather discouraging.

All in all the only good thing about these guys I have found is that they did refund my money (prorated of course even though I never got to actually play on the box) with out any hassle.

In short if you are running ESTools .419+ don't rent these guys. (Personally even if I was not at this point I would not rent them on principle.)
