Hi Folks,

I upgraded my 4.2.023 server to 4.3.1 using the updater tool and I see the following error message spew across my console logs:

Info string length exceeded
Info string length exceeded 
Info string length exceeded 
Info string length exceeded 


I didn't have this issue with 4.2.023, but also didn't introduce any cvar or server config changes. Are there any deprecated settings I should remove that are no longer supported between 4.2 and 4.3?

Googling around on this the only thing I can find around UrT is a brief mention of cvar values being too long.

I'm running CentOS7, upgrading from 4.2.023 to 4.3.1 via the UrTUpdater_Ded.sh script.

Any ideas?

If this helps anyone else I've added a grep line to remove this from my logs (it was growing it by 2KB a second which isn't really ideal).

This is just an ugly workaround.


server-startup-lines-here 2>&1 | grep --line-buffered -v "Info string length exceeded" 1>>~/UT/ut-server-$DATE.log 2>&1 &


For posterity here's my full server startup script

#!/bin/bash
UTDIR="/home/gaming_server/UT"
DATE=`date +%Y%m%d`
cd ~/UT/;
$UTDIR/Quake3-UrT-Ded.x86_64 +set fs_game q3ut4 +set fs_basepath /home/gaming_server/UT/ +set fs_homepath /home/gaming_server/UT/ +set dedicated 2 +set net_port 27960 +set com_hunkmegs 128 +set +exec server.cfg +set bot_enable 1 +exec bot.cfg 2>&1 | grep --line-buffered -v "Info string length exceeded" 1>>~/UT/ut-server-$DATE.log 2>&1 &


I want my ut-server-$DATE.log file because I parse game stats with it into HTML and PNG.

Have you tried to start without the BOT configuration?

Can you show all your CFG files?

This is a very old issue... most of us figured it out in release 4.2.008...

Try this, remove server config parameters and replace them by empty string:

set g_teamnamered ""
set g_teamnameblue ""


If you dont use

set sv_minping
set sv_minrate
set g_maxGameClients


then set there also the "" empty string.

Repeat the same for any unused parameter, e.g for FreezeTag
set g_thawTime ""
set g_meltdownTime ""


or Gun Game
set g_hardcore ""

This should fix your issue finally!

Thank you for the post, I changed all and worked back each one....

this might make it a bit easier as looks to me that its ...
only sv_minping value changed as described
... that seems to address the issue for me, thank you @karla @sadsfae and @xxone (^_^)
