yes, fs2netd is back up. just use the attached config file because the IP address for the server has changed

Is this a temporary move or a more permanent one?

there was never any move
here is what happened

hurricane rita came, the power went out, and my old static IP was no longer available (i dunno why, i will have to ask my isp) for some reason or another so i got a new one. that is all that changed

btw someone might want to update the scp homepage multi FAQ to point to this new config file instead of the old one

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
um............ sorry if this is a n00b question, but when i try to register at the site given, it won't send me a validation email. I've tried it five times. What am I doing wrong? If it just doesn't work, is there any idea when it will be fixed?

why would an SCP error be considered as news? :wtf: *smacks Cobra*It's a feature.

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
I believe that registration is down at the moment. Seeing as FS2NetD is also down there isn't much point in registering at the moment anyway. The forces that be are hard at work on getting both back but in the meanwhile it is still possible to play IP games.

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
thank you very much. If it isn't too much trouble, is there any ETA for the repairs on the multiplayer?

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
How can I access the cooperative main FS2 campaign that is located in core.vp? FS2 multiplayer utility only shows the Templar campaign, and I assume it just searches .fc2 files. Is there a .fc2 version of that campaign or do I have to register to some online service to play the SCP campaigns?

Yes, I have a lot of questions :D

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
It should show you the missions and campaigns as long as you have mv_core.vp somewhere the game can find it. If you're finding Templar you should be finding the FS2 campaign. Try looking for the missions in the individual missions list.

Of course that means you'll need to be using FS2_open as mv_Core will probably crash retail.

Multiplayer worked well, we tested the first mission and completed it succesfully, albeit I forgot to set the correct controls. I ended the mission with hull integrity of 1%. My friend saw fit taking potshots at me :pimp:

It doesn't. Next time you play you have to start again.

Good thing that they're all playable as single missions then :)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Exactly. That's why singleplayer missions weren't available by default but multiplayer ones are. You'd have find a really dedicated group to play the whole FS2 campaign online :)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Are the files provided in the first post the latest? Particularly regarding the FS2 executable and the launcher there are newer ones available already, but i don't know if they'd work in mp, so just want to make sure everything is up to date.

[Edit]
Ah well, FS2NetD seems to be down for quite some time now. So i guess the only way for an MP game is to find some people and connect via IP?
