I did ask on forums. No reply.

I was planning on paying you for your time.

I was not intending to set up the server to play Fran. I was actually going to play him with a friend that I gave RF to.

The only problem is that, I don't have a lot of the "Connections" or abilities that you, digi, and nick did.

I can do nothing to make Trot work on/release the new PF...one other problem.

Yes, my plan had been to set it up as a voltz 3v3, but players aren't going to come back to play in a voltz 3v3...

One last thing, I am not as kind as any of you...I outright refuse to help the average pieflake. Examples: KobK, hk, duck of death, pvt. tim, many of this apox clan, and basically 95% of the active player base.

I think the basic solution is to move on to a different game....I'll be looking around for different games and the hosting available for them.

I don't see any post about this on the voltz forum.

They will play in a voltz 3v3 if the server and website is not shit. As far as moving on to another game, I thought everyone established that a long time ago.

I posted it in the voltz private section to get a general idea from the clan members...

My suggestion is to:

Email him using the link digi provided. Say that you were recommended by "Philip" and you'd like to know how much an 8 slot Red Faction server will cost.
Post publicly on voltz for donations/help.
Request Cupid take down the current private voltz server, as it's an atrocity.

Setting up a server is honestly really easy. Just request he sets it in windows 98 compatibility mode.

I'll email him within the next few weeks after everything is settled in my apartment.
Will he configure the server to what I'm looking for? Or will I have to give him the settings that I want...?

I think a lot of the past problems with the Voltz site are related to the RF community in general. Once other game divisions are added, and the RF division dies down, I think the site has potential.

Thanks for the help.

Okay, go look at the servers he offers for other games and the info you give him.

Typically with GSPs you tell them number of slots, public/private, etc. You'd be doing the same thing, except you'd be dealing with him directly because RF is not a game he officially offers.

Then once it's set up, you get a control panel where you can adjust basically all the parameters (maplist, gamemode, etc)

You get FTP access to upload maps and whatnot

He won't really configure it. You'll do that by shutting down the server, editing the dedicated_server.txt (I think it's called that?) and starting the server. I suggest you make your own server a few times, just to get to grips with the settings and what not.

Digi has also made a server guide somewhere on this site. It's pretty straight forwards. Some of it will be set up. I assume he's kept the files from "myRF".

I'll leave you my email in a PM. I do not use messengers, but you can contact me via that. Do not give it out to people like fran. If anyone asks for my email, just ask me whether you can share it.

People like Shark, digi, nick, goober and some others, are capable of not writing utter nonsense; however, the majority of RF players will try to impress me with their exponentially increasing stupidity.

Didn't we use the standalone server last time?

Server guide is here, but many of the sections don't apply if you're renting the server:

Opinions on This?

I was told that I'd be able to run an RF server using this method. However, I want a little bit of input from people who know what they're talking about...

Those prices are pretty normal for a decent VPS. If you're wanting a proper dedicated box they're definitely pricey.

This. I've got a cheapo VPS from BurstNET. It works. Uptime lately has been great, but disk IO is kind of lackluster. I WINE'd an RF server on it a few months back. It worked, but redcomped every time someone spawned with a new skin :P

Two lessons to learn here:
1) Don't run gameservers on a cheapo VPS
2) Don't buy a VPS just to host RF servers
3) Don't host RF servers

So it's three, whatever.

I've taken up the hobby of training alex and hosting a legend server.


The worst part is, I'm serious.


Yeah I highly doubt I'll end up hosting, unless by some miracle some decent players come back.

Chicago or NY? The Maverick guy is extremely helpful.
