  • Increased security
  • Control IP whitelisting
  • Improved logging

  • Number of people to start recording with now configurable via the interface
  • Added example demo file to get it to run faster
  • A lot of stupid warnings removed
  • Cleaned up the servers directory from more files that are not needed
  • a lot of small stuff
  • a completely new webinterface but skooli is too lazy to document it

Features b1

Complete management of all ettv servers - the servers are started as children of the ettvd process for full control over them. The servers will recieve all commands needed from the ettvd service.

  • Start of recording when enough players are ready
  • Recording pause when players leave the server
  • Disconnect from matchserver after timeout
  • Simultanious recording of as many games as you want (limited by cpu/ram)
  • Replay of recorded games
  • Multiple broadcast servers showing the same or different games in Live, Semi-Live or Replay mode.
  • Spam protection with a sticky mute system (/reconnect doesnt help)
  • A fully featured webinterface (by skooli)
  • ETTVoD ready
  • Display of intermediate maptimes
  • Announcer for next game, current game both ingame and in sv_hostname
  • Most settings configurable in a single file
  • Fully painless matchserver crash recovery
  • Recovery of all sorts of ettv broadcaster crashes (replayers continue where they crashed)
  • Ingame admin commands !mute, !kick, !reclist, etc
  • Complete demo management for archiving
  • Constantly maintaining the correct ettv_delay
  • Replay Playlists or playing specific games again
  • Probably more


ETTVd: Edit:, config.php Add maps and pak0.pk3 to etmain Make ettv.x86 executable

Webinterface: upload to php'able webspace configure includes/config.php


./ as superuser (edit it first) - if you're not root change acordingly

My _example_ script will automatically set a higher priority and change user to my ettv user


Big thanks to skooli for the webinterface Big thanks to zinx and bani for caring about my ettv whine Thanks to frop for pimping the webinterface Thanks to conr4d for that suitable ettvd logo Thanks again to eicher for starting a proper documentation for ettvd Thanks to everyone reporting bugs

Ingame chat commands

recordmode <recid> <mode> --Sets the recordmode for a recorder, the following modes are currently supported. --ready - recording starts once 4 players are ready --connect - recording starts as soon as the recorder is connected

--Remark to recording: Recording stops when less than 50% of the players the game started --with remain on the server, it resumes when 2/3 of those players rejoin. --Please do not forget to kill your recorders even if they paused recording

livecast <recid> <repid> --Tells a replayer that it should replay whatever that recorder will be recording --If the replayer is not running at the point that the recorder starts recording it will not work

killrec <recid> --kills a recorder after broadcast

playgame <repid> <gameid> --plays a certain game

nextmap <repid> --jumps to the next map - if it was the last map of the game it will chose the next game in the reply cycle --if you do this in live broadcast mode you will leave the live broadcast, because we cant jump into the future !!

There are more functions used by the webinterface - if you really care, please check the sourcecode of ettvd.php - commands are pretty easy to understand
