How to crash an Enemy Territory server using WeaponStats command


  • admin

    Enemy Territory is developped in C, which is a low level language which requires developpers to manage memory allocations by their own.

    Sometimes, proper check of cvar length is not done, and a buffer overflow can happen.

    This is the case of the WeaponStats cvar.
    So to crash a server, you just have to type

    /ws 9999999
    

    Unpatched servers will crash and every players will be disconnected.

  • The initial post explains how to change GUIDs

    The first time you will run Nexus, a randomcl_guid, etpro_guid, n_guid, sil_guid and mac (for Jaymod and Nitmod) will be generated in nex_settings.ini.
    If you want a new random one, simply delete one of those lines.

    To change your IP, you have to use another connection / VPN / etc
