Changes for 1.70 are listed below.  A database update is required for this update.  Get it in the downloads section.

  • Monitor will no longer crash at start up if database is unavailable.  It'll try to reconnect every 30 seconds until successful.
  • Monitor will no longer crash at start up if database version is not what it expects.  It'll query every 30 seconds until the database is updated and continue.
  • You can now specify how long to pause between starting dependency servers.  Default value is 1 second and is configurable per server.
  • Added option in global config to disable the panel's navigation menu.  The panel will add a link in the footer to the Admin menu if an admin is logged in.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to mention that we're not using OpenSSL directly in any of our products.  All our web stuffs are hosted on IIS and IIS is not vulnerable to the OpenSSL vulnerability.

That being said; if you are hosting UGCC on apache and OpenSSL you may want to update OpenSSL.

Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions.

  • Added support for NASCAR Heat (requires the new kill all children processes setting)
  • Added support for Insurgency
  • Updated TinyMCE
  • Fixed an issue with the update tools and extras tool with remote monitors

A database update is required with this update.  Download the update here.

New features, bug fixes, and support for a few new games added in this update.
  • Both the monitor and web panel log to the database as well as their log files
  • Removed the menu under Admin Menu in menu.  Now links to admin menu page.
  • Added new admin tool to view logs in database, expect additional features in subsequent updates
  • If a user is already logged in when going to login page, redirect user to main menu automagically
  • Added the ability to automatically disable servers on a specified date
  • Further refinements of the update tool
  • Server images are now being served from memory cache instead of using a database cache.  It's quicker and should help alleviate issues with a memory leak with sqlite.
  • Reduced remote monitor CPU usage on Linux when idle (now <1%; used to be 3-25%)
  • CPU monitoring now works on Linux, but is an average over time instead of realtime like Windows
  • Improved license detection code on Linux that should work on a wider range of distros
  • Updated ArmaA3 query
  • Updated query for Killing Floor servers
  • Added query support for Just Cause 2: Mulitplayer servers
  • Added query support for Starbound servers
  • Updated TimyMCE

We had planned to make more progress on the auto installer with this update, but we're still trying to sort out the best way to implement it.  We've added a new entry to the admin menu that will verify/create the folder paths and update tools (steamcmd/etc).

We've also removed the 'Admin Menu' menu.  Now it's just a link to the admin menu page.  The admin menu was getting too cumbersome and I don't feel users were fully looking around at all the tools/items available to them.

As usual get it in the downloads area.

We've released a pretty big update for the site.  If you notice any issues please report them.

We've also added the ability to order more than a single year license for UGCC, and now offer discounts if you order multiple licenses and/or years!

We've also added a 'renew' license feature to the Customer Portal, which lets you renew existing licenses at a deep discount.  The current discount is 25% and makes the price of the panel cheaper than it was previously!  8)

We're actively working on an automated installer system for the panel, and a price increase has been put into effect.  A single license costs $29.99/year now, but you get 10% off if you purchase more than one year or more than one license and makes it only a tiny bit more than the previous price.  There are different tiered discounts based off the quantity you buy; the more you purchase the more you save.

Check the products page to see the new fee/discount structure.  If you have any questions or complaints, please let us know.

This is a hotfix update to fix an issue with the panel's update tool.

  • Fixed update tool page refresh redirecting to the incorrect URL for some browsers

No changes are necessary for the monitor and thus the version number has not changed for the monitor.  Only the web panel needs to be updated.  No database updates are required with this update.

New performance tweaks and small feature additions in this update:
  • Added option in Global Configuration to use either Friendly Name or IP:Port in integrated FTP server for virtual directory names when showing multiple servers.  Default settings shows IP:Port
  • Enabled MySQL connection pooling.  This should increase responsiveness of the panel and monitor when using MySQL and lighten resource usage.
  • Panel will now cache game server query results (only for main menu page) for 1 minute to help improve subsequent page load times.
  • Added option in user profile page to disable the query of game servers when viewing main menu page; should help page load times when there are a lot of servers
  • Monitor will now log if it doesn't start a server due to the owning user being disabled
  • Added option on Admin Menu page to only show servers for certain users
  • Fixed some issues with the update tool
  • Updated TinyMCE to 4.0.2

This update should improve the responsiveness of the panel; especially for MySQL users and we recommend everyone to upgrade.  Grab this latest update in the downloads area.
