"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Is it just me and my computer or is the rar version of sparky corrupted on the server?

[EDIT]My bad, I downloaded the wrong one, so I still had my corrupted vp.
I have big plans, now if only I could see them through.

Make sure you are using passive mode with your ftp client and are loging in with the username 'freespacer'. If that's not it, then it's a problem with your network setup.

Chill out man, It wasn't a personal attack.

Since other people were connecting to the server without a problem, and you couldn't, then there was definitely not a problem with the server.

That's why I mentioned your network setup.

well the server isn't stable


next time you go to say it's the other persons system messing up perhaps you should take into consideration the fact that some people here have many years of expirience with computers and have formal training in things ranging from comp sci to networking

when you talk to them and make a statement that makes the assumption that they haven't checked their network settings it tends to insult them

Okay I'm going to start off with this:

Once again, I was not calling you tech abilities into question.

But if you are going to say that telling a person who knows about network setups that there could be a problem on their end is insulting, than I'm afraid that the real problem is that your ego is much too easily hurt.

Because all it was intended as was a runthrough of what the problem could be because people have been connecting to the freespacer account without a hitch since October 7th.

Actually, the server is very stable. As I mentioned before in this thread, the FS FTP server used to be on my box, and I was not leaving it up 24/7 prior to Oct.7th. Since then, it has been up almost 24/7 (it was rebooted once).

Usually people will not be able to connect for because all of the slots could be full. (which is generally the case)

And I'm going to end this on one final note.

THE DAMN SERVER IS FREE, SO IF YOU WANT TO ***** ABOUT ITS STABILTY OR HAVE 24/7 ACCESS, FIRST SEND ME SOME CASH TO HELP PAY FOR IT.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I just added some additional notes to the first post.

Just in regards to filezilla users, to please disable the keep alive system so that you don't get temporarily banned for staying connected to the server while idle.

Cheers!

Great.  I finally get in (using Filezilla) and it bumps me out b/c of too many users :(


EDIT:  D'oh! I guess I should have edited my first post.  Sorry folks!

EDIT (2):  I finally got in, but I get the following error when I try to download the FS2 Avi's or Rar's of the movies:

Status:   Starting download of /Freespace_2_Movies/AVI_storage/bastion.avi
Command:   TYPE I
Response:   200 Type set to I.
Command:   PASV
Response:   227 Entering Passive Mode
Error:   Could not open the local file \bastion.avi
Error:   Download failed

Any idea what that means?

You can't download bastion.avi anymore, now it's bastion.rar.

I left the original avi files in the directory for storage, assuming that people were going to download the .rar files since they are slightly smaller.

Actually I moved the avi files into a folder called avi storage, but I forgot to hide it, and just as we speak someone is downloading the avi files again, instead of the rar files.

Why? I don't know. The size difference on some is negligable, but I'm going to hide that directory after anyways.

Cheers!

That's me, oops.  Sorry.  I'll begin d/l the rar's.  I didn't see a difference and didn't think it was going to work, either.  But it's working now, thanks!

Ok, downloading the rar's.

  • This site stole my work
Someone help me out here because it's Monday morning and I'm teaching Prolog to undergrads. So my brain is fairly swiss cheesed. I own Freespace 2. Fairly obviously, since I've been on these boards for 9 billion years.

So if I want a 100% complete and working backup of my treasured FS2 disks where do I go. In bullet format. So I don't have to trawl through the whole of this thread.

Thanks guys. Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum and all that...

Edit: Out of interest, can I just clone the CDs I have? :o
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

If you have your original CD's don't bother downloading anything from the FTP server. There is nothing new there you don't already have.

So, if you want backup copies, open up your CD Burning sofware, and then click on the "COPY CD" option that should be present in mostly all CD burning software made for Windows.

Very simple proceduce. Read the help files included with your sofware if you are unclear, that's what they are there for.

Cheers!
