Update your servers

Post Posted: Tue Dec 18, 2012 5:30 pm



This is from gameservers. Some of you are probably aware, about a week ago, I asked the question of how to keep a server updated to the most recent version of 4.2 from game server rental companies on IRC and I was called a troll and removed from the channel. I wasn't senselessly complaining. This is the exact reason why I was asking the question in the first place.

If you get a server from any game server company,
check it immediately.


If any teams are having issues with their server not being the proper update or just don't have a 4.2 server for Winter Cup and we're not using ours, you're more than welcome to message me on gamesurge or quakenet ( nikkerz ) and you can use ours. The server is located in London.

GL to everyone.

If anyone has any problems with Game Server Providers, please let me know, and I will do my best to get in contact with them and let them know what they need to do to support Urban Terror 4.2 and if those companies will continue to offer support for the game. I assume almost all of them will. But just in case, i will contact them on behalf of FrozenSand if its required. However the best route is for people to do as they have and contact the companys directly themselfs!

Thanks

They fixed the issue quicker than I figured they would for a gameserver rental company (5 hours). So if people catch it right away after they get the server, it could be fixed within a reasonable time-frame. Not sure how good the response time is with other companies though.

AFAIK (I talked once with GS on their IRC channel) GS performs update in a way that NOT involves UrT Updater. They grab updates manually, make ZIP and deploy it on machines. There is a reason, why UrT Updater was created and should be used.

42 is easily updatable - seems like GS tech support is not aware, that some of the files are ie overwritten and so on.

No No Majki,

GS Providers oftern have thier own internal deployment systems. They are the ones that updater there own system manually. However, some have allready requested a "Notify" email sent to thier helpdesk from us "FS" once a release has been made so that they can update their systems.

This is fine. I will make a email list to do this Smile

Thanks

I know that FS is probably not really into advertising game server providers, but I think it would be really beneficial, if we could get a list of providers, that are selling 4.2 servers and they are reliable in terms of following the updates and supporting it.

I think teams are not playing 4.2, simply because it is hard to find a server provider. So far, I haven't seen a provider that properly listed 4.1 and 4.2 on their site. They just list 'Urban Terror' and that's it. Many of them are only offering the game, because it's hassle free, they put it on their site 5 years ago, and they haven't changed a single thing (incl. sec. fixes).
So right now, team have to message a bunch of providers, whether they are supporting the new version, whether we will get updates or not and whether they are working on fixing the issues they run into.

All in all, I think a list of available and reliable (like the ones in RaideR's post that requested a notification for new updates) providers would greatly help the community to switch to the new version.

We FS stand neutral and support all GameServer Providers equally and do not promote any over any others. That being said, you are more than welcome to post "recommendations" on the Forums as long as you are not affiliated with the company in question. Please refrain from posting "refereal" codes aswell. We don't allow for unsolicited advertisment, but recommends are fine.

Smile Thanks
