NEWBIESPLAYGROUND GameServers reactivated!

Postby strategy-(DOG)- » Sat Mar 18, 2017 1:58 pm

you might have noticed, that newbies GameServers were down - but we were able to reactivate them!
due to a harddisk-problem we lost our working dedicated windows server. starting from scratch we decided to switch to a linux based-server. meanwhile we could reactivate all gameservers (currently only the multigameserver is still offline) and most of the running services - master.newbiesplayground.net MASTERSERVER should be set up and online soon again as well (thanks to Smirftsch who will support us on this!).

this was a true "disaster scenario" but thanks to the support and teamwork of MrC-(DOG), x21-(DOG) and cpuenvy-(DOG)- newbiesplayground-servers are back online!

a big THANK YOU! from my side to the "Newbies Technical Team"! WOOF! :flap: :flap: :flap:

Ladies and gentledogs. Greetings!

I happened upon an old RAID controller and a 1TB WD yesterday! So at the moment I am creating a VM on the drive so we can have a place to backup the server. I'm hoping to do an automatic backup of the servers onto this system if all goes well, and then incorporating it into my CrashPlan backup.

Thanks for all you do. I've been playing this game for about 15 years or so and I really appreciate the community.

Did you try the latest build? That madness with case-sensitivity for file extensions should be fixed now.

if the latest patch is "227j_38_pre3" then yes. this patch resolved the issues with utweapons and ut maps.
yet still got issues with the "multigame-server"...

I was referring to a different issue. Changing *.UNR to *.unr should not be necessary anymore.

That's a relatively small issue imo. A script can quickly rename all the files.

You can still take advantage of the given change, because new packages can be uploaded to the server by you and other admins in the future.
