I think i can answer this one...

The grey messages happen when a player says something, disconnects, and the
text appears later due to chatlag. The server sees the player isnt there
anymore and displays the text analogously. The same might be possible with
nickchanges and chatlag but i haven't had the chance to verify that one yet.

Onderwerp: [bf1942] exploit for Linux server?


Jumped on my server last night, and I see grey server messages appearing
from other players on the server.  Is this an exploit they are taking
advantage of, or do I merely not understand something?  (I realize it is
much more likely I simply do not understand!)

I have looked all over the place for detailed documentation for console
commands, but can't find it.  I don't even know how to create those grey
(or yellow) server messages myself.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated (I would at least feel better
knowing for sure that no one else can easily administer my $150 per month
