It is self evident to all of us admins that the current 'tool' for running a server is completely inadequate.

Altough it may be of small comfort...LEC and Pandemic are aware of the problem and are planning on doing something.

Today I recieved the following message from LEC

I've been told the Devs will be addressing some concerns of the community. I have no timeline for this. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you and the rest of the Admin community.


and the following from Pandemic

We'll be looking into adding features like this but right now I have no date I can give you. But the need for these features is evident and as I said I'll discuss the issues with the network programmer.

I'll keep you posted when i know more.


so at least we know that at some point there will be a 'real' manager....we just dont know when

I will keep you posted

hopefully remote admin is on the top of their list.. as for managers i'm sure someone (Blackbag ops comes to mind) could probably code a great manager.. if the remote admin ability is there to begin with..

Kevin at BBO says he has no time to do this, he isnt even going to do a BF2 manager.

...unless someone pays him

so we need another Kevin

Do they know the basic things we need?

Service Parameters , etc

Agreed. A snazzy gui comes later. We need multihoning command line params.

Btw, if full information on the command line parameters is released I might be willing to give this a shot. I've developed similar GUI tools for in-house remote control of a launcher via TCP and UDP. Hopefully though Pandemic will take care of their own mess here though.

I am still in shock at the release....who in their right mind thought this was adequate?
