This thread is dedicated to helping people solve problems with Metal Factions.

What sort of bot hosting are you using, and if you run SPADS do you know how to run it on there?

i'm using a virtual private server with ubuntu linux OS for the hosting.

I use SPADS.

There's a section for it on the forum and entries on the wiki

on my etc/hostingPresets.conf file, I have this:

modName:~Metal\ Factions\ v\d+\.\d+

what pattern are you using?
