By any chance, did you had your OJP game server(MeatGrinder?) flooded lately?
Or any weird people joining and spamming over 1024byt messages to crash server?

It happened once when I was there. It was swiftly dealt with though.

Just checking because after 10-15minutes after I disabled password on our server some script kiddie joined and started spamming crash-text(teh 1025byt say).

Meatgrinder got killed for a few minutes by connection flooding. Nasty stuff, that.

But yeah, nothing you can really do about it unless ensimod tells us what he did and Razor throws it into Basic.

That would be really nice. When I banned the spamming intruder then after few minutes(!) the server lagged and eventually became unaccessable. After an hour it was normal again though...

You should've restarted it.

I don't have that kind of 'option' with the current hosting. When it crashes, our host must restart it...

Really? Ouch. That sounds horrifically limited... you may want to look into another server host... like, say, escapedturkey?

Indeed...

This thread seems pointless to spam about unless someone actually posts the 'fix' for flooding.

Eh, you'd have to wait until somebody compiles the fix into another Basic release... ho hum.

From what ensiform stated, it sounds like it's a engine related issue. From what I can tell, it sounds like you gotta run another engine executable to fix it.
