Deep Space Die

Post by Seether »

Due to popular request and since I have available resources once again, Deep Space Die has returned.

Unfortunately due to Server Pack 2 and the age of the game there were some issues getting it to run, and information is quite scarce concerning Elite Force server setup. Its been so long since I had set one up I don't remember all of the required firewall ports, so it doesn't list in GameSpy Arcade or on the Master Browser currently (trying to fix).

Also I had to install the Community created 1.37 patch to get it to function in Win2k3.

Please PM me if you need to know where to get it.

Please note that I always run a fully updated server so you must have EF + Xpac installed. Then you need to install the 1.37 patch and run that exe vs the old STVOYHM.exe.

Current map rotation is as your remember it Voy1/Voy2 CTF ;)

Due to the firewall or the community patch(dunno) there is some funkiness going on with challenge ping times for the intial server handshake, but after that pings are fine (mofoko and I tested it ;)

Let me know if you have problems connecting and I can adjust the max_ping variable above 5million.. haha

DSD IP: 216.58.227.30

I don't have Faceoff or other classic maps installed yet... I'll get all that loaded as I have time ;)

Enjoy.

I logged on GSA just to see if anyone was around... The only server that I saw non-bot players in was MAC gladiator... :-/ If the server is any trouble I wouldn't bother troubling yourself. DSD does bring back some great memories though.

Server is up... 24/7 connect when you want, but don't expect it to be full.. cuz I mean.. who plays these days? We need to schedule some nights :)

Server has moved to:

74.53.78.178:27960

Of course the realization just hit me.. that this server probably won't pop up in the master server list due to the version.. being a community patch I doubt either GSA or the ingame browser will recognize.

Seems a service pack or security update conflicts with EF on Windows 2003 Server Standard/Enterprise..

Coolz!

I hopped on the other night and ran around Faceoff... it was AWESOME! :-)

...but I remember having a 20ms ping on the old DSD... it was 130ms on the new one.... can you move the server back to Dallas? lol! :-P

Thanks for bringing this server back Seether! I can't wait to get on there and frag with some old school EF players! We need to setup a night! :-)

Its in Dallas again ;)

But I was setting up a lot of stuff last night and utilizing the server connection quite a bit, so imagine some increased ping would be an effect of that.

Let me know if its still up in the air.
