for the next 4 hours im open for games. im not gonna run a server untill i find another player though. please post if youre intrested. il check back every 10 minutes or so.

are there any varified dogfight missions? i think it would be a cool idea to keep a validated dogfight server going at all times.

That's a great idea.  Did you end up getting more validated missions?  You can find them on the game-warden downloads page (http://www.game-warden.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=1).  My suggestion: keep your FS2\data folder as clean as possible, extract these validated missions to a new somemod\data folder within your FS2 folder.

anamael, is your server still running?  Because at this moment it is not listed on the fs2netd active games page (http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/?area=activegames).  Were you able to connect to fs2netd in-game without error?
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Nuke on September 28, 2006, 01:56:24 PM
i installed the missions, only problem about the mission packs is none of the dogfight missions are valid. there are plenty of other missions.

as for my directory being clean, cleaned it up shortly after fs2net came back online. had to set nukemod up with a mod.ini to get everything working. only thing in the root and fs data dir is whatever came with retail, and a couple renamed scripting files, uncommenting them may give me a slight advantage in multi, such as being able to play pong when im bored :D

i set up an rc7 dedicated server for tonight if anyone wants to play. i might join in later.

ok, the standalone server didnt seem to work. dhere doesnt seem to be any recent documentation on the thing and im tired to tweaking it. i might just run a regular server in an hour or so.

damn, let that be a lesson for everyone - never buy D-link routers.

Just set up your own server again, also nuke, could you see if you could extract the co-op missions from mv_core, that's where a lot of the multiplayer missions are, but the mv itself has tbms which break multiplayer :(
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread

Assuming that I get the time to do it (maybe for 7dot9), I'm going to allow tbms to be used in multiplayer.  Only if the tbm modifies a critical item (like damage, range, charge rate, etc.) will it call hacked tables on you.  After that it should be safe to use the mediavps in multi games.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Nuke on October 01, 2006, 10:31:24 AM
perhaps maybe we can have a balencing system in place, a mods table values are run through a formula of sorts to calculate the effectiveness of the weapon or ship. if a weapon or ship's overall effectiveness is within a certain tolerance it can be called balenced and is acceptable to use in multi.

perhaps it would be possible to automate the validation process so that modders may make their mods multi compatable without community review. make a check validity flag, which, when run with a mod will go over the data, check whats good, and give the modder a report of what needs to be fixed. if everyone knows the formula then it shouldnt be hard to tweak the mod till its valid.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: taylor on October 01, 2006, 12:16:47 PM
That's way too much for 3.6.9 though.  I've already planned to redo how tables are validated/updated/maintained in the new PXO code, but the exact details of that are still in the earliest stages.

If it's not something that has to do with 3.6.9 then I don't give it any time or thought.  After 3.6.9 ships I'll have more than enough to do already, and the networking related stuff is rather low on that list.  So you'll just have to remind me about this again early next year. :)

Would be a nice feature, but don't you think it would be close to impossible to define such a formula? Ship/weapon balancing has been one of the strong, nearly perfected points in FS2, no doubt V did loads of play testing just for that purpose.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Nuke on October 02, 2006, 07:27:55 AM
you really think [v] painstakingly tweaked every value in the game till it worked? no, i think they applied a general formula and tweaked the formula untill it rendered the most balenced result. of course we now have alot more weapon options to choose from, but that only requires a slightly more advanced formula.

oh by the way my servers going up now

Post by: castor on October 02, 2006, 07:44:42 PM
Nuke, I was thinking about fighters and bombers where balancing is critical.
I guess capships could be handled by automation, as they aren't generally controlled by humans.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Nuke on October 03, 2006, 06:37:17 AM
i was more thinking about weapons, ship balencing would be more difficult. you would need to calculate its thrust capability, its rotational capability, its weapon compatability and number of banks (a 4 point bank is twice as effective as a 2 point), the power of compatible weapons, max missile/ammo load. also stuff like hitpoints, shields, ect. there are alot of interacting variables so just adding up points may not neccisarily work.

you may have to give each variable a wheight, or how much capability that variable adds. for example shields would get a higher wheight than hitpoints, as theyre rechargable. also one must figure out how to handle binary flags, such as stealth, which may be worth a number of points. im not saying its easy, but it is a math problem and it can be broken down. its just a matter of how accurate a formula you can come up with.

it really just requires starting a spread sheet, plugging all variables for the objects you wich to compair, and thencreate a formula to determine a total brownie points value. mace a number of ships comply with the formula to have ~equil brownie points. you use playtesting under the rules of science to either confirm or reject the new formula. play the same mission 3 times each with a number of ships. and compair average mission scores per ship type. tweak the formula untill the differences in the point scores occupy a lesser spread. you want the brownie points to corelate with the scores as closely as possible.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: castor on October 03, 2006, 03:34:59 PM
Yea, it is a challenging task. The formula would also need to guard for childish hacks, like ships having nil endurance and speed/maneuverability but huge guns mounted on them. :eek2: Such things wouldn't do much as of their own, but could severely mess up TvT games.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Nuke on October 05, 2006, 03:37:38 AM
then you involk thresholds, mins and maxes that must be obeyed. if theyre not you wont get validated.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: FF-Darkhalf on October 05, 2006, 10:07:08 AM
Tough task on that ship balancing, tho I ain't sure if I quite got it. I wouldn't be able to calcuate it :D And then there's always the pilot's skill aspect, some can handle a loki and some don't, so it can be minimal threat to a max one :nervous:
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: castor on October 05, 2006, 05:53:43 PM
Indeed, this would allow one to customize a ship with emphasis on personal flying style and strong points.
Damn, it seems I need to finally learn some modding skills if this becomes a reality some day :D

The existing stuff is getting phased out across the board.  We don't want to make it easier for people to just keep doing what they've been doing.  The FS2NetD server software is being rewritten, which will require an FSO build upgrade for everyone, and we are only going to support 3.6.9+ from now on.  Everyone will have to upgrade soon enough anyway so we might as help force the change, since when we don't force it, no one bothers to actually change.  Forcing the change also makes sure that we get more people helping to find bugs because that just makes the future builds better.

Plus you don't really want to gain access to incompatible builds anyway.  That will just drive you insane.  Everything has been going the incompatible route so long and we are working hard to restore original retail compatibility so that the FSO code base will be ready for the re-introduction of PXO early next year.  It's kind of strange when you sit and think about it, but we are breaking compatibility in order to actually restore compatibility.

Believe me, it's for the best that everyone uses 7dot8 (soon to be 7dot9) or better from now on.  You aren't going to have the choice much longer anyway.

Not to mention it reall helps with the debug process.  Could you imagine the number of false bug reports from version conflicts?  I'm sure I'm driving Taylor crazy enough as it is.  Martellato and I are wondering if we might need to start a fund for his psycotheorapy at the rate we are reporting bugs :D
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: castor on October 07, 2006, 11:02:59 AM
Would it be possible to have an 'Update FSO' button on the launcher (pointing to a D/L source for the latest FSO/stable binaries)?
It would help new people to keep connected, now when multiplayer has version checking in place.
The fact that FSO now has an actual stable branch really makes things look a lot more promising for multi, compared to 3.6.7. :yes:

Personally, after a bit of testing with 3.6.9, I wouldn't mind anymore if support for any of the older builds would vanish :)

hey ppl ; it's kinda hard to find games via the forum. u get tired of F5-ing at some time. i propose we use IRC , a server outside SCP if the one there does not work for you. and furthermore it would be best if everyone posts their possible uptimes (converted to GMT) and agree on a time interval in which we cand find eachother

All times GMT / UTC / Zulu (same thing)

i'm up from 19:00 to 21:00


try http://scp.indiegames.us/e107_plugins/irc/irc.php

or type in mIRC : "/server irc.maxgaming.net:7778" (without the " " ) ad then "/j fs2source" and "/j lobby_20"

Check the Beyond the Red Line forum for our IRC channel and ask for a game there. Quite a few fans have recently gotten into FS2_Open multiplayer.

Yarrrgh!!! I see a game at the access point, but nothing's available in the game! Anyone know what the problem is?

Also, it would really be a big help for anyone hosting a game to put the mod and/or version number of FSO in the game name.

Post by: <X> on April 18, 2007, 04:45:44 PM
i dont know man, sometimes when i wanna game with someone they start a server and then i cant see it, but when i start one they see it, i think that fs2open is far from perfect yet, we should just try to communicate and let one another know whats going on if we wanna game.
Title: The 'Lets Get a Game On' Thread
Post by: Menumorut on April 20, 2007, 05:48:28 AM
this is usually caused by people having outdated versions of fs_open

i had the same problems recently , so i'm trying to update my files and see if that works. if not , then it means that a LOT of people are using outdated versions.

In every single case I've seen so far that's turned out to be a firewall issue. No idea why some people can see the server and others can't though. I have a new build for testing this though and I'll be trying to see if I can find any other causes for the problem.

All off now. It only lasted around 30 minutes. Some stupid jerk was hosting and kept starting and canceling the games. Through that we lost 2 players, then The E had to leave (RL I presume) and later Flint left. It sucked. For some reason the missions kept crashing or didn't work well at all.

I do know that there is a game this upcoming Wednesday and Saturday. The times and further details are at HL. To bad very few people play.

Protip: If you want to play multi, don't just advertise it here. Go to HLP (http://hard-light.net ) and advertise there as well. Better yet, use the HLP IRC channel ( irc://irc.esper.net/hard-light ), since there are usually a few players around at any given time.

As I said elsewhere on this board:

If you want to play some FS2 multiplayer, there are scheduled games at Wednesdays and Saturdays, both at 2000 GMT. Impromptu games do happen as well, they are usually arranged/advertised on the #hard-light IRC channel over on esper.net. ( irc://irc.esper.net/hard-light )
