Are there private servers for FreeSpace: Great War (FS1)?
I have had this game, and enjoyed playing since 2002 when I got it at target along with Silent Threat.  :D
I was wondering if there any servers besides the FS2netD one that host FS1?

Thanks
BOO!

Gunnery Control, target SireDoimeHeretic.  Begin plasma core insertion.  Sensor lock aquired, commence firing sequence...

Welcome to the the HLP Forums.  Exits are to the sides and rear.  Don't plan on using them though, someone let the hosted projects put all their stuff in there so they're all but inaccessible.  In the event of an emergency, flamethrowers are stowed under your seat but due to budget cuts, they are now filled with holy water.  There are pulse rifles and assorted heavy weapons in the lockers up front; these can be opened only by admins, a :v: - god, or a hyper-intelligent shade of the color blue.  These weapons are reserved for the Apocalypse, bad April Fools jokes, and the mention of eF eS thr33, in that order, so don't get your hopes up about using them.  In the event of a water landing, your seat cushion can be used as a flotation device, and you'll find a week's supply of Bosch Beer hidden inside.  There's a 95% probability that the beer isn't actually beer, and no one is really sure why you'd need a flotation device in deep space, but hopefully these will provide some small comfort.

Feel free to get acquainted with the place while you're here, and do be careful when exploring the ventilation systems.  If you encounter a large 5-limbed creature, don't panic.  Just set down your lunch and back away very slowly.  If you're lucky it will just be Carl, our resident shivan, who responds quite well to bribes of food.  If it's not Carl, and it's in a good mood, at least your death should be quick and painless.  If you're particularly unlucky though you might get dragged into a religion or politics thread, in which case may God have mercy on your soul. 

:D

I don't know your answer, wait for someone that does.  In the meantime, get FS:SCP if you have high-speed, see what you think.  ;7

Actually FS2NetD doesn't host FS1 (or retail FS2 for that matter) except if you play the FS1 on FS2 conversion on an SCP build.

Once PXO is fixed and working again that will support FS1 :)

I would imagine that they'd both be separate entities, each with their own stats?

aww...no stat transfers. maybe a server-merger? toss out the older less-effective server and put everything on the faster PXO server? or we could just stick lobby chat into FS2NetD and forget the letters pee-ex-oh just as we did eff-ess-three.

It'd be nice to somehow make FS2NetD integrate somewhat with PXO; ie, you provide your PXO login, and then it automatically checks PXO server info & lets you chat w/PXO players.  If PXO did the same for FS2NetD that'd be even better.

Re: Are there private servers for FreeSpace: Great War (FS1)?
PXO will replace FS2NetD, we aren't going to keep them both running.  The FS2NetD code is being rewritten for 3.6.10, and on the surface will work much more like PXO, but behind the scenes it will be an upgraded FS2NetD backend.  The total conversion to PXO will come later, when I have time to finally rewrite the trackers (user and game).

And there is no plan to keep the stats.  They will most likely just be dumped and everyone will start fresh with new PXO usernames.

If there is any justice in this world, Squadwars will stay buried forever.

What was so bad about Squadwars?

And I'm asking out of ignorance, since I didn't get the game until PXO went down. :P

SquadWars were only for the hardcore.

People who were weak couldn't handle it.
