Don't know what was up before, my ping is now at 35 on CH. Think I must have had a routing problem.

The server was running better with the higher rate setting for me ping around 65-75... but smooth enough when it settled down.

Posted: 24th April 12, 09:20pm

That is y i cud not run a server online firewall blocked me. so it maybe blocking request for update of pb.

Posted: 24th April 12, 07:32pm


Degem
if it is your router or modem. look at the modem or router and it will tell u the opening username and password which u open in ie. be something like in ie type http:/192.1.1.0 then asks u to enter username and password which is on the side or bottom of device usually admin admin. Once inside go to forwarding and for sof2 enter in port 20100-20112 then u have to find out the ip ur computer is using from router so suggest before u start u type either in run or search and type cmd the in black screen type ipconfig. it will show ur ip address write that down and when u set ports then put ip address ur router has allocated

Setting up a v1.00 server using RPMPro (same as CH Players) is just a case of editing the RPM.cfg and mapcycle then double click on the RPM_Start_Server.bat file. I run it to test settings and maps and usually get people connecting whilst messing about.

Posted: 23rd April 12, 06:06pm


Degem
Can set up the server ok. Just can't get it to go online have to think about it for a while. Have a firewall on pc and firewall on router think it maybe the router

Happy St. Georges Day..... :) On the hints&tips page (link) there is a topic on setting up a server on PC.....

ok that was a disaster have forgotten more than i used to know. So will attempt tomorrow Comments to set up a sof2v1 server on spare computer. Would be grateful if u all try to join just to see ping and if it runs. System is varying between 20mbs and 10mbs so do not expect really great results but getting upgraded to 60mbs and can leave machine running so just want pings and will have to ask doogie about setting server rate.

Degem
cant even get my own server. Does it still work sending heartbeat to ravensoft or is that now cut off

Posted: 23rd April 12, 01:00am


Degem
ok server running its Degem get ping so can see if it's ok to run

Posted: 22nd April 12, 10:59pm


Degem
Ok just thought about this for few mins but give me 30 mins will set up degems server see how ur pings are. Only on 20mbs just now but wud give idea how good it wud be. will have to set it up on 1.03v cause don't have v1 on this computer but about to change hdd to 160gb from 80 so will do it

Posted: 22nd April 12, 10:49pm


Degem
Getting 60mbs second shortly have three machines. Old xp machine has dual sli video cards. Cud I run a server on that at resonable ping.

Degem it could also be that game server providers are starting to phase out older games like SOF2. That's what started the demise of Axis, Jolt started pulling plugs and switching stuff about, same way Gameservers went down.

Posted: 22nd April 12, 09:47pm


Degem
For a difference in maps it maybe only a kilobyte but do not think anything less. so anything above a kilobyte is dodgy. Therefore once admins checked it out u can put the real unaffected maps on sof2 and allow players to change to ur mapcycle

Posted: 22nd April 12, 09:11pm


Degem
Just remembered if u have banned a person for cheating. If i remember correctly u will have the ip. Know this is not full proof but u cud ban the ip's of all cheaters. Therefore they can't attack server. there again if it it's using a botnet then there are a number of computers that have taken down something that is in commen so that shud not be to hard to find. Doogie says its only on regular maps so start with a compare of maps sizes between admins.

Posted: 22nd April 12, 08:46pm


Degem
If as purple86 said y attack an old game. If u were kicked off the server for cheating u deserved it so do not attack the sof2 servers, go cheat on doom3 or quake4 servers. There again u may not be clever enough to do that.

lowpings have same problem thats why they change all to new host/ip Its the V1servers company attacking servers. time ago i recieve this mail: Hey mate. Your servers have been Lagging in the past weeks but don't know why. Lag still continues, no one likes to play there anymore :( . Could you please check? I've seen 2k3 and Lowpings servers lag while only some of the companies servers are secure. This is killing the server and game. Your previous servers from V1 were good and other servers like >|S4A|

It was weird for me tonight 50. RMG maps were fine. Standard maps I was warping and juddering all over the place.

Here is an answer from 2k3 servers about the server stopping working today.... Today we became victim of a fierce DDoS attack initiated by a botnet. Because of this, between 2 PM and 7 PM there was some downtime. The attack seems to have stopped by now. This is the first time we were attacked on such a large scale. As with any such DDoS attack, there is little we can do to prevent it. However, we will try to contact some of the owners of the infected computers. We have also notified our ISP. If you would like to know more about this kind of attack, please refer here: Check link....

So how active is SOF2? And I'm talking OSP/vanilla, not those crappy ROCMOD doodads... Would love to have some shootouts again, but, are there actually any EU servers still up and running that are active?
