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.

Great news on both. :)  I updated the first page of the thread.
