Thanks! that saves me a little bit of work, but I do have to change a couple things, the forums went down right after I upgraded things to 35.21. Glad they're appreciated

Also I did not use your service much recently, still, and again, you have my thanks.  :)

You're quite welcome.

2348 switched from 35.19 to 35.21

Had reports that that the 35.21 server is crashing and needing resets.  I STRONGLY URGE people to make sure they are connecting to the proper port with the proper version. Version Mismatch can cause instability and crashes. If the server crashes, please email restless@chaosgarden.net so I can reset it.

Dear Steve,

with my friend we used your server to play a battle for our campaign. A few minutes ago during the battle his internet connection was lost. I used /localsave command to get "savegame.sav" file. He suggests finishing the fight tomorrow. Is any way how to resume the battle on your server in the moment we were interrupted?

Thanks for an answer

Well, if you email me the save file, I can put it back on the server.

For Future Use, use /save instead of /localsave and then you can use /load to load the saved game.

All right, thank you very much. I will remember it next time. Now it's not necessary, he just sent me an e-mail in which he incorporated it into campaign.

But just for the interest, I tried /save command after that and nothing happened. So if we wished to resume the fight, I would typed /load and then selected the file savegame.sav? Could he join already, or should he join after the savegame was loaded?

PROVISIONAL 35.22 server is running on port 2349

NOTE: This server is currently for testing purposes only. If it crashes, it crashes. I will not be reloading any autosaves from it, and from what I hear, .22 may have some issues that make it less reliable than .21, so if you're playing a game of any importance, I suggest using .21 or .19 instead. If the server is crashed, let me know and I'll restart it, but this instance is a provisional instance, and is a support non-priority.

Servers are down because the router machine died, and we're in emergency operations mode. we'll be trying to re-establish a proper configuration late this evening. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Server is Back Up.

It was the weirdest thing. I've been preparing a server upgrade for awhile now, and just hours after I migrated the last of the data from my old Main Server Ra, the harddrive died in it. Just after the IRC network where I'm staff performed an upgrade to a new ircd. So, I had to rapidly get my new setup going, but the router wasn't behaving quite the way I had hoped it would, and no one could load pages. So I had to put a temporary router up.  Then, after hours when I had a chance to get ahold of my Guru, got the server working the way it was supposed to.

New Setup:

Anpu:
Pentium4 2.8ghz
256mb Ram
40gb HD
Debian Linux 6.0
Routing and Firewall duties.

Ghostwheel:
Pentium4 3.0ghz
2gb Ram
1tb HD
Debian Linux (Host) Debian Linux (GhostMain VM)
Virtual Server Host

Cthulhu:
AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+
1gb Ram
60gb HD
Debian Linux
Megamek, IRC Bot duties.

Just curious, because I'm running a persistent merc campaign using your servers (Which I, being a technical dumb-dumb, appreciate more than I could ever describe) is there any way to load custom units on to the server for use?

Custom Units are local to the client.

Custom Maps are Local to the Server (but to preview them, you need to have them in the client too)

Custom Camoflauge files are local to the client.


What I do, is i put my files, my camos, my maps, and my mechs into a megamek install, zip it back up, and put it up for my friends to grab, so that they have the same camos I do, and access to my custom mechs.

Hey Steve, thanks for the gamehost! Had a great game with Neko_Bijin the other night thanks to you.


Question, I just tried to log in to the same gameserver (2345) as I used 2 nights ago, and it lets me in (I can even see the ghosts from our last game session) but it immediately kicks me off. Wondering if we did something wrong when we were done? We just sorta closed out....

if you'd like, you can /reset which will clear the board, and put it back to the lobby. but for a full cycle, you'd need command line access to the server.

There are certain errors that build up over time from bad connections and such, and its good to kill the server and start it back up now and then. I've been thinking of finding a way to automate that. I'm glad to see the servers are still getting used, too.

My internet access is my Evo4g and WiFi tether. There's no way to set up port forwarding for WiFi Tether, that I know of, and not all of my friends know how to monkey with their routers. So yeah, you're a lifesaver, and thanks! O0

So... Any word on when we'll get a server for 35.23?

I use your servers pretty much exclusivly as due to our setups most of the people I play with (and me) seem to have serious problems acting as servers ourselves, yours are a godsend really. Thanks.

For that matter... Anyone clue where I can find the maps on this server megamek doesn't have by default? They seem to be eluding me.
