Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
That's not the same reason.  Mediafire links require going through a gateway page to generate a temporary client token.  Copying and pasting the url and getting a download required no such interaction at all, it went straight to downloading the file.  There may be another distinct reason for sectorgame but it's not like mediafire I don't think.  Perhaps enforcing single downloads at a time and UA spoofing might be sufficient?  Or perhaps the timeouts I got is their bot control?  I got three or four files to start downloading, which I canceled each time, before it started timing out for like half an hour.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience in downloading the Aftermath Reboot. I'm currently resolving that matter.

CloudFlare may a protocol similar to Captha.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
That's quite unfortunate. That was one of the great reasons to use fsfiles. :(

Actually I don't think the FSOInstaller ever connected to FSFiles.  It only downloaded a couple of things from SectorGame itself.  FSFiles should still work for manual downloading.


Well isn't FS Files is on Sectorgame? If the installer was trying to use this url for its files, then it was using Sectorgame. (I could be mistaken since I don't know exactly where the installer would be getting Aftermath Reboot from)

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
The Aftermath is using FSFiles (SectorGames). The Installer File I've sent is using that link. Anyway, I have an update coming and I will send an updated Installer File to Goober. He also adviced me to look for other file hosting sites that supports direct bot download which will be a little bit challenging since most of those sites have the Captha feature. Damn the virus programmers. I will try ModDB.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
Unfortunately we were booted from Incapsula for exceeding their free bandwidth. They asked $500 to continue using the service... so I had no choice but to switch to Cloudflare.
The installer is blocked by default, even with security set to 'essentially off' -  If we can't figure out a work around I might look into removing FSFILES entirely from cloud caching and just go raw, leaving the rest of Sectorgame on cloudflare.

Edit: It should be noted that the server bandwidth is unlimited, it is merely Incapsula that don't like high traffic on their free plan.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
I can host a limited number of project files on my own site. I have unlimited space and bandwidth, but it's a shared plan so there's an arbitrary limit to resource usage (which I have yet to find even when BtA was getting very heavy traffic on release).

Send me your files and I'll host them for you.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
I have purchased a fleet of VPS systems each with fairly high bandwidth allocations, but not much storage.  It would be interesting to see if Knossos could support a system in which they could automatically mirror the most in-demand files.

Transfer limits and storage capacities include:
HDD      Transfer
10GB      1TB
25GB      750GB
30GB      2TB
40GB      500GB
30GB      2TB
50GB      2TB
15GB      1TB

These all already have some space consumed by an OS and an FS2 barebones VP set for running a standalone server, but there's enough left over to help I imagine.  If we came up with a system for doing this it would be nice for anyone else interested to set up some VPS server accounts such as these.  None of those costs more than $2 a month.

That sounds like an interesting idea. I'll look into it once I finish the new UI for Knossos (which should be soon  :nervous:).

If someone needs a new mirror for FS2 stuff in the future, I can offer a server which has a monthly bandwith of 30TB. Just PM me if you're interested.

You have to repeat the DELETE line for each file you want to delete. However, it's been a while since I've last looked at the Installer code so I might be wrong about that.

ngld is correct, the DELETE only works on the line immediately following it.  Only the X...ENDX tokens will work on multiple lines.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.1.10
Also, work is currently in the pipeline to make an EXE version of the Installer available for people who can't or don't want to run the JAR version.

I'd like to raise this again since it didn't go anywhere. I still think it's a problem since there are quite a few posts from people who apparently can't run the JAR file. Here's a recent example from a user who claims he installed Java (although I guess that wasn't successful since the he still couldn't open the JAR file).

You might want to have a gander here for an in-depth article, and here for the goods (looks to be we would qualify for a free license, not sure, but if not, there are other applications that do the same thing that I could hunt down).

EDIT: One such application, that's actually cross-platform, can be found here (might want to use
 that instead of the above *shrug*).

Excelsior JET is what Turey used.  GCJ appears to no longer be supported.  I'll take a look at Launch4J.

 
Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
its been years since i played freespace.  i still had it installed, with an old version of the installer,  updated the installer, ran it  and it closed  multiple times without an error(during the download/install) with a file added to the Dir ware i ran the installer from. I'm running the most current version of java(8 update 131) don't know what else to do other than post the file hear.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
Hm, looks like a segfault happened when the 7zip bindings tried to communicate with the JVM and at one point the installer ran out of memory.
I have no idea how that would happen. I think the installer generates a logfile which would help in this case but I can't remember where that file would be. Sorry. I guess you'll have to wait for Goober.

Re: RELEASE: FreeSpace Open Installer, v2.2.1
Been pretty busy this week, but I'll see if I can take a look at this.  But yes, I'll need to see the log files.  Zip up the logs folder, which should be a subfolder in the location where you ran the Installer.

I did see something odd in the logfile you attached.  You're not running this under Cygwin, are you?
