@  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:
@  Nameless : (23 May 2018 - 12:00 AM) Yup, -sflserver.tekagis.ca  or 69.165.222.85. On it right now.
@  Nalvenin : (22 May 2018 - 08:00 PM) So.. is there a working TT server?
@  Nameless : (20 May 2018 - 04:59 AM) FA Cup down, Champions League next Saturday.  Let's go Ronaldo and Real Madrid!  :D
@  Fenris_Wolf : (07 May 2018 - 09:00 PM) lol that IP is outdated anyways...should be on a static IP now
@  Nameless : (07 May 2018 - 03:01 PM) Never mind.

Today with the help of Fen, we moved the server onto a new machine. The new server has close to 8x the ram, and roughly twice the processing power than the former.  Both fen and myself have seen some increase in overall appearance/ performance in high gfx situations, so I am hoping players will notice some differences in the gameplay.

The "New" server, is an older but decent laptop. It was originally made for windows 7, but I don't like 7, so i forced XP upon it. Much to its disapproval, but i got drivers for everything :) The link below is to what best resembles this "NV" 53. It doesn't enjoy full screen applications, or actually PLAYING freelancer due to some odd overheating issue. I took it apart and scrapped some heat paste from another old CPU, smushed it on and jammed it back together. That fixed its "overall run time" overheating, so now it can remain on indefinitely. But it doesn't like working the screen too hard or it restarts itself. Soon ill be getting a tube of my very own heat paste tho. So im hoping that will keep it cooler than old p4 paste from the closet computer. I do have other options tho if this fails, so don't worry about the shabby condition of things. I have a good hammer and another couple laptops if this thing dies on us :)

hmmmm...... thermal paste...... oddly enough..... if you "lap" the processor using 800 grit sand paper on a glass table (very clean) till it has an almost mirror finish (that is if it has a metal heat shield) and you can use silicone paste [ like the stuff they use to lubricate caliper brake pins ] ( A TINY LITTLE DOT OF IT!!!.... as big as the O on your keyboard).... if its a laptop overheating, then your heat pipe fans may be failing, try running the server with the lappy closed and the ram cover removed and if it has a floppy port/drive, remove it.

 

im pretty sure most refrigerators door seals will allow for a power chord and a net cable to still seal, throw that badboy in the fridge :D .... NOT in the freezer.... it will collect humidity and short out pretty quick.... don't ask... OH better yet, look at garage sales or what have you for one of them wine fridges :D boom, problem solved ^_^
