DAVAJ - Counter Strike Servers


We are back!!

Its been a while since we were completely functional.

We never faded away. We were always around, starting from well before every other Counter Strike : Condition Zero clan currently in existence. But something was always off, whether it was the website or the stats or the game server itself.

During our journey, we made many friends in several other communities and several enemies as well. Some of these perished communities mentioned below.

Today, we are back. Stronger than ever. We are no longer dependent on any hosting provider. All game servers run on our own infrastructure with full admin access. Even the website has been moved to a private server where we have full root access and the freedom to do whatever we want

  • Monsters Balls (MB)
  • Fruit
  • PGN

And many others who have been with us through the journey. The lesson you thought will be remembered forever.

Joister down permanently now what ?

Joister down permanently now what ?

As we all know Joister died this week, now what about Davaj Community ? Where are we shifting ? I know there will be alot of questions going on in your mind.
Hold your horses, we are here and not going anywhere.
We are planning some exceptional(different than traditional) ways to find out the best option. We will be back in a week with better option.
Trust on team DAVAJ, we went through these conditions in past also, and we came back more strongly. Remember VS-Gaming ?
We may take a week's time but yes this time we will come stronger than before.

We have good technical people and we are analyzing different options such as "VPS" , "Dedicated Servers".

We hope this new year will be more blasting :)

Bye Bye Joister

Why Joister went offline for forever ?

As we all know Joister is permanently down. I see people are making their own "Conspiracy theories".
But what exactly happend ? Why suddenly Joister got permanently down ? Being the strongest player(We can say only reliable host), it went down?
I tried to figure it out. To understand what happend, we have to understand the Joister's business.
"Joister is a technology driven company. Here we crave for giving the ultimate in service.
Be it simple home based Internet solutions or a highly reliable, secure leased line connectivity."
Source www.Joister.net

Joister basically provides following services :-
- Broadband
- Hosting
- Joister TV
- Web portal
- Gaming

Now as we all know, gaming is a casual industry, which attracts basically the teenagers(yeah some times big kids like me also :) ).
But Joister's main revenue was through Broadband, Hosting, Joister TV and Web portal.
Some pathological kids were DDOSing Joister since years but as i said they were the biggest player, they were able to sustain with some downtimes or outage.
"DDOS is a type of DOS attack where multiple compromised systems -- which are usually infected with a Trojan -- are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack."
But later they started targetting Joister's corporate lines, which Joister can not compromise against Gaming.
Joister has played a significant role in Indian Gaming. We Davaj community salute joister for their hard work.
We hope you will be back with bang soon :)

HLXSTATS : Life of Pro A resides here

 

Hlxce : The stats system which majority Half Life servers use to track their player's stastics to make the game more competetive.

Well lets talk about Hlxce and its history (Practically known and related to DAVAj Gaming).
We were using premiumn version of hlxce previously Widely known as "Gameme" (http://www.gameme.com/).
Gameme is an advence version of Hlxstats which provided some extended features which is not with hlxstats community edition(the current free and usable version).

Hlxstats is a free version of Gameme formely known as HLXCE is being used by Davaj Gaming currently and i would like to mention that Davaj gaming do not pay a single penny for hlxce hosting because it is donated to Davaj Gaming by the owner of this service "Frank".
Frank was a senior player of Davaj Gaming in early 2011 and then started their own server named "Monster balls" later and had a fabulous Gungame Server (Personally i was big fan of it) later with ups and down he started his own tracking system with Hlxstats: Comunity edition and he have MB again but formely known as gamemoz in web world.

Challenges : We started with Gameme because it was easy to set up, no hassle and pay and go service. However later on due to VS- Gaming's monopoly and repetaed by Joster Gaming(initialy and yes lot of factor involved) policy of no ineternational routing, which means no player can connect to indian servers and this effected the stats as well because we couldn't connect and send our player's data to Gameme to keep and track record of it bacause gameme datacenters were situated out side India. Now with Hlxstats(Datacenters are in India) is a useful tool and service for Gamemasters to keep their server's alive with attarctive stats system.

Half life players and Davaj Gaming will always be thankfull to "Frank HLX"(FB name) for his support!

what do you of this history about HLxstats ? Please comment Below

Are You A Lagger ?

"LAG" a shameful word in On line Gaming. In India Counter Strike lovers still get introduced to this word when they play on-line. its frustrating to stuck when you are about to kill enemy or about to diffuse the bomb planted by Terros.
Today we are going to talk about the reason of lagging and basic precautions to get rid of it.
- Lagging Due to Internet flapping:
This is most common reason what Indian gamers face often, seriously our Internet Service Provider called as ISP are not Capable of providing a stable internet. There is a huge difference in between a high bandwidth internet like 10 MBPS, and a stable internet. A stable internet keeps transferring the data with constant speed, and as we know even 256 KBPS bandwidth is enough to play Counter Strike On-line. On other hand an ISP can give 10 MBPS with poor stability. You can check it by checking ping responses to any Ip like below screen shot where I am checking it with Google's Ip. If you are getting "Request Timed Out" frequently then you need to contact your ISP customer care.

- Host Issue (Currently Joister) :
This kind of issue can not be resolved by suer's end because all drama happens at server end. You do not have any control over it so leave it. You can email you issue at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with following emails
You Name :
Place :
Internet Service Provider : example Airtel
Ping : as explained above
Tracert : open command prompt and type tracert the ip example tracert czero.davaj.in and let it complete till 30 hops

- Using applications which uses internet without your knowledge :
There are tons of applications which uses internet while you play on-line, and most of Bandwidth consumed by these applications which effects you data transfer in game, and which results the shame word "LAG". Exit these applciations while playing.

 

Following above steps may help you in diagnose the issues.

Library

  • Games can now be assigned to more than one category at a time
  • Add "Hide this game in my library" functionality, accessible from the Set Categories menu. Games that are hidden will not show up in library filters except for a new filter called "Hidden", which will only appear once at least one game is marked as hidden. Hidden games are still available for play and will still appear on the user's profile.
  • Add an "Uncategorized" filter in desktop library filter drop downs. This will appear when a user has at least one game in a category and at least one game that has no categories.
  • In desktop library details, list, and small views, games can be multiply selected using shift-click and control-click and certain operations can be performed on the group
  • Added install option to context menu for multiple selections

  • When adding a new category, scroll the category list to the bottom so we can see the category that was just added
  • Added by-category filter options to the filter drop downs in all library views
  • When switching between library views, remember the category of the game selected and retain it when possible
  • In list view with game images selected, display the image on all instances of the game instead of only one
  • Eliminate extraneous "Favorite" category when favorites are added from Set Categories instead of Add to Favorites
  • Make type-to-search properly expand categories in list view. Better synchronize type to search between library views.
  • Remove user categories from navigation bar hover menu. They are still available in the game filters drop-down in the library views.
  • Add context menu to category headers in library views, containing "Expand All" and "Collapse All", and, in details/mini view, "Show/Hide Icons"
  • Improve category collapse state synchronization between library views.
  • Don't show hover effect on list items when a context menu is visible

Davaj With 1000 fps

We started our journey with one condition zero server with 500 fps. Frankly speaking due to several issues from hosts (VS gaming and joister gaming) and sad infrastructure made an indian cs lover's life hell. Now Davaj Gaming has upgraded both gaming server from 500 fps to 1000.

 

We have to understand what is fps and why it is so important.

"Frame rate, also known as frame frequency and frames per second (FPS), is the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems." Source : Wikipedia

How more fps gonna help ? most obivious question from a user end.

Well with little knowledge i would say it is all about the smoothness and quicker reaction time.  Its funny but i should mentioned people say "500 fps servers are better than 100fps". we i think here people definetly refer to those who can not afford 1000 fps server. From  player's point of view we should say "better Pings and registration of shots".

What do you think ? have you noticed any change ? please comment in forums or here.
