Here is the latest Airdale Ops Network
We at Airdale Ops are proud to announce the release of the completely rebuilt Admin Panel v3.0
In the new Admin Panel we have made many performance improvements and a few added features, lets walk through
tab by tab...
You can download the New Admin Panel from:
A web based help can be viewed from:
In the first tab you have the Server Config, here you can set the file transfer options to upload scripts and bans to your
game server whether it be a Local or Remote server. We have built in a couple of the most common used hosts for easy
setup of the ftp paths. In this tab you have the option to enable PB UCON remote Admin system (Admin Panel Graphical Client
is reserved for AON PSA Members) and also to set server specific scripts such as map rules and web tool settings.
The next tab is the Global Script Editor, here you can add PB scripts that will be added to all the servers you update
using the Admin Panel. Common use for this is management of BadName lists, Clan messages, Screen Shot settings,
Next we have the Script/Ban Options tab, here is where you select which ban lists and scripts you wish to download
from the Airdale Ops Network, you have full control over the scripts and bans you wish to use and we not only
provide the bans from AON but also AASA, ACI, and PsB, so you can have the full protection of all America's Army
supporting communities ban lists. If you are a Private AON member you also have the choice of downloading the
AON private bans, the Expired bans (typically bans related to use of Major AA Exploits), and of course the added
protection of the AON Private Scripts.
Next we have the Personal Bans tab, this is where you can manage your own ban list for those who have violated
any specific rules on your server that are not on any AC ban list. Bans added to this tab are automatically added
to the downloaded bans you will get from the AC sites. In this tab you also have the ability to have a ban removed
from the downloaded lists, simply add the GUID of the ban you wish to exclude from your server and that player
will not be banned from playing on your server even though they are banned by the AC groups that you choose to
The Account Setup tab, here you add your Admin Panel user account settings which enables you to download from
AON and if a PSA member grants access to the Graphical PB UCON Client. Here you can also setup the "Remote Config"
which allows you to store your Admin Panel settings to an FTP site so that you can share your config with other Admins
in your clan, this allows you to keep all your Admins in sync with bans, scripts, UCON, and FTP settings.
Now the fun stuff, the PBUCON Client tab, here we have a set of sub tabs with a handful of features to monitor and
control your server. In the first sub tab we have the UCON Graphical Client, this client connects directly to the game
server PB interface to monitor PB logs live as they happen, screen shots received by the server from each player
are downloaded instantly from the Admin Panel and displayed on screen. You have a set of one-touch controls just
a mouse click away to check server settings, scan a players user settings for potential exploits, kick or ban a player,
and also a easy to use drop down list of Official Released maps to switch your server from map to map in seconds.
The next sub tab is the Screen Shot Browser, this tab provides the user with the ability to get a list of screen shots
for each player on the server and either check each individual screen shots for a specific player or you can simply
scan all your screen shots on the server (just click scan and walk away). This screen shot browser/scanner works
not only on web hosted screen shots but also is the first ftp enabled and local screen shot scan system for those
who do not have web server access to screen shots.
Next is the Suspect Screenshots tab, this is where you can review the screen shots that the built-in screen shot
scanner used in the screen shot browser and the UCON client has flagged as suspicious.
The next tab is the Server Stats tab, here is where you can monitor the server and player stats, you can see the
typical GameSpy server query results showing Honor, Kills, KIA, Points, and as of 188.8.131.52 you also have easy
access to each players GUID. This stats display refreshes every 20 seconds to keep you informed of how things
Next you'll see the Editor/Parser tab, this has 2 sub tabs, the first is the File Editor tab. The file editor tab gives you
a simple way to quickly download, modify, and upload text files. You simply select the server and directory and click
the update list, then select the file you wish to edit, click download and then make any changes desired, once changes
are complete simply click the upload button. This is much easier than opening an FTP client, download the file, locate
and open the file, edit, then open ftp client once again to upload.
The next sub tab is the Chat Log Parser, here you can download and search/filter the chat logs by player or by words,
this will make it easy to see what people are saying/doing while your away. You have a button to copy any search results
to your system clipboard to enable you to paste such text on your forum for review or evidence to a ban. We have also
added a button to easily purge your chat logs since the chat log system keeping appending logs by calendar day.
And now, finally, last but not least, the AON Tools tab. This tab is simply a web browser which gives you an easy way to
access the AON Tools website from within the Admin Panel.
Version 3.1 has been released adding the following functionality:
1) TWL/CAL/HTGN script "swapover" for Tournament play.
Two clicks will now update your server with scripts for the league that you belong to for use in match play. A simple update of scripts after the match will revert your server back to "pub" mode.
2) Bug fix related to adding additional server instances
3) Swapover of log stream/parsing to use the AON Active Repository vs the Legacy system.
4) Additional filtering of IP Address entries to avoid user error in setup.
