Thanks maslo, but if you don't making a quick revision... taylor had to make a slight adjustment and move it from 64.92.160.251 to 64.92.160.250.  (actually at the moment, both ips work for me)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
uhm, i think thees instructions need to be brought up to date. their in conflict with the ones over at gw. i think the current consensus is to use a 3.6.9 release canidate over the oeb, ive been using rc7 myself with a reasonable level of success.
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

:D quite a funny catch, considering how much most ppl here dislike the oeb.

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Wow, found a way to access the registration page! I don't know for you, but the link we have here does not work... here's what I found when I clicked on the original link:

"Could not locate remote server

You tried to access the address http://game-warden.comfs2netd/, which is currently unavailable"

There is a slash missing in the adress that we are supposed to be redirected. So I added one (http://game-warden.comfs2netd/), but only a blank page appeared. At least, there was a favicon. So, there was something there!

So I decided to enter fs2netd as a subdomain, which ended up like this: http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/

Guess what? It works!!

 
Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
pyro, where did you find the goofed address?  That should be fixed.  The subdomain that you guessed is actually the official url for the FS2NetD site.  Lucky guess. :)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Opera gave me that error when trying to access FS2NetD witht this link: http://freespaceserver.cjb.net/fs2netd

"You tried to access the address http://game-warden.comfs2netd/"

Having a .comfs2netd surely doesn't help hehe. Yep, lucky shot with the subdomain...

I must deactivate the new media VPs so I can play without the "hacked tables" message... is it normal? :blah:

Yep. Taylor is adding something to stop that though and allow us to validate modular tables too. Until then modular tables = hack.

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Okay. Hey I've been able to log into FS2NetD, however I cannot see any games and when I go to the FS2NetD accesspoint, I see these three:

FUBAR'S BDHR Bar & Grill
FUBAR's BDHR Bar Brawl
dot8 build - tinyurl.com/f3d5b

Could my firewall be blocking something? (Altough I wonder why it would, I tought it was only when I had to host that there should be a problem)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
You're not using a compatible build. Everything 3.6.9 RC 7 and anything before it is in one set of builds and Retail and everything newer than 3.6.9 RC 7 is in another. The two groups can't see each other on FS2NetD.

I can't remember the URL for it but Taylor has a build that is compatible with retail somewhere.

I have a CVS build of 3.6.9 and I know it's not RC7 - it's something older.

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Use this build: http://icculus.org/~taylor/fso/testing/rc7dot8.rar
Yes, indeed.  Pyro, the 3 servers that you listed are all running the build that taylor linked to above (3.6.9 RC7dot8).  The servers are running this because the "dot8" CVS build allows standalone servers to run with much greater stability than the original RC7 (hence it's no suprise that they are the dot8 standalones are the games that "survive" in the active games list :))

Who is DW-HUNTER? I remember you of the fs2 multi in pxo times xD... I Salvador :P

BTW, I have an idea for FS2NETD... why just dont make to work as a MOD? you can keep giving your most updated tables for playing on multi... it will be good to just use a MOD for playing on multis...

 
Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
Im using FS2_open build 3.6.9 rc 7dot8 and I can see available games but when I log into multi player in game and go to game search nothing is coming up. I am set at TCP but what I'm not sure of is do I need to put an IP addy in the multi player option area or do I need an IP in my launcher or does fs2_net automatically log me in when i get into game?

No, you have everything set up ok. Those "invisible" games are probably run with a FSO version not compatible with your 3.6.9 rc 7dot8, therefore not shown at all. Another possibility is that people hosting those games haven't configured their routers/firewalls properly.

Is there any possibility of getting FSO multi to work without configuring firewalls and the like? Like other multiplayer games (for the most part)? :)

Re: FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD
My firewall is on and I haven't set anything to run FSO - it always worked, I can see games and play. I always tought that the firewall needed to be set to host games.

It might just be a quiet time of the day.. Or then people might be playing BTRL multi instead of FS
