@  Fenris_Wolf : (05 June 2018 - 03:13 PM) ya the globals been a real pain the last 8/9 months or so, edit the shortcut to your freelancer.exe, and add -sflserver.tekagis.ca:2302
@  McKooter : (05 June 2018 - 02:21 PM) Been good, i gotta figure out how to connect, i got the game, i have the mod... but i click and no global servers, no way to find the server. Ill admit its been 5 years since i have tried to connect...
@  Fenris_Wolf : (04 June 2018 - 09:33 PM) hey mck how you been?  :)
@  McKooter : (04 June 2018 - 02:57 PM) O_o hey guys
@  Fenris_Wolf : (29 May 2018 - 02:27 PM) The flserver doesnt run on the same line as the webserver. Since FL doesnt really run on linux so well its more of a home hosted connection, where our webserver is located in a datacenter on a fast line. Ellis was probably using his bandwidth for something else last night
@  Nameless : (29 May 2018 - 05:27 AM) Hmmm...  Average ping from the game server of ~2500 for several hours.  The websites is ~70.
@  Nameless : (26 May 2018 - 04:29 PM) I don't mind doing reps per se.  It's trying to get white or green with ALL of them at one time.  Right now my main character, Nameless, is white to all but Boskos, Admins and the Bundschuh.  It just took 300+ hours online to figure out who to kill, where to bribe, and which supply depots to destroy when.  Best two depots are the BH in Manchester and Shikoku, and the Liberty cops at Manhattan.  Fixes most things right up.   :P
@  Fenris_Wolf : (24 May 2018 - 02:41 PM) I aways hated doing reps  <_<
@  Nameless : (24 May 2018 - 07:38 AM) Fen, I hate mazes and fixing reps with so dang many factions.  Let's see if I can get neutral with everyone but the Boskos and Admins.  And figure out how to blow up mazes!   :rolleyes:

Update Server Issues

18 October 2017 - 03:34 PM

At some point within the previous months our update server stopped functioning properly. It seems a upgrade to our webserver's security modules had stopped allowing access to .ini files. Since no one reported any issues, I failed to notice the problem. At any rate, its fixed now and the updater should work normally again.

Server Relocating, expect downtime

14 August 2017 - 05:59 PM

After much debate, we've decided to relocate the FL server to the other side of canada. After less debate, we've decided to ship ellis along with it.  I'll try to keep a temporary server up while the move is happening (your characters should be intact).  But expect some downtime for the server in the next few weeks.

 

* note to self: remember to poke air holes in the shipping crate for ellis.

 

UPDATE (aug 19th): Temporary server is now up and running.


TekagisUpdater has been Updated

01 February 2017 - 04:18 PM

After FAR too long, The Updater has finally been updated.  The new version includes a basic GUI with a progress bar, shows when the last time you updated was, a tooltip showing the server status and current player count, and is smaller, faster and smarter.
Please visit the forum thread at https://tekagis.ca/p...=4&t=8&p=12#p12 to see what all has changed and basic usage instructions.
You can get a copy of the new version from https://downloads.te...agisUpdater.exe


Texture Upgrades

29 November 2016 - 06:36 PM

I've uploaded some texture changes to mod files, hi res starspheres (by Hunor), hi res solar textures (by Hrimthur), and new interface textures (by us). I've also added widescreen support (adoxa's hudshift).

 

WARNING: This update will be quite large when using the TekagisUpdater (it was actually designed for small patches not large), so instead of using the update server for this, you may want to re-download the base mod files from here  https://downloads.te...Treasure5.49.7z

you'll save a lot of time and bandwidth that way

 


New Webserver (and more)

25 November 2016 - 03:29 AM

Thanks to ellis, we have a new domain name and server https://tekagis.ca

Why?

1) This domain and site are registered to C (i believe) who is AWOL, how long he will continue paying the bills to keep the lights on is unknown. We don't want you people left in the dark when that happens.

 

2) The new site is hosted on a virtual server, giving us much more flexibility on what we can do with it.

 

For example we now have valid SSL certificates for connecting using https, and we can directly tie the webserver into the FL server allowing for website checking of who's in game, as well as being able to access things like your character stats, ship garage, storage and markets directly from the site.

 

Zero's put a lot of hard work into the new sites layout and style (which i then smashed with a hammer to make fit - sorry Z), so big thanks to him too.

 

We're not moving over yet, there's still a lot of work to do over there, and this place has a lot of history we don't want to lose. Hopefully at some point we can get access to the database to port it all over to the new forums.

 

Some things will be moved to the new server immediately: our update server is now hosted there (has been for a while), all future download links will point there, and we now have a IRC server hosted there (server: tekagis.ca, channel: #tekagis) which it will also be tied into the game server like how tekagisbot does skype.
