*** SERVERS GOING DOWN ***

Post by Daivuk on Thu Mar 21, 2013 9:35 am

hi Guys, bad news.

Something came up, and we need to switch to IPV6 for the servers and all.
And I can't do this without making updates, and recompiling some part of the code...

Then we looked at it, and turns out we pay a lot for that server.. Like way too much that it should be. The website rndlabs.ca was already schedule for destruction soon (This or next month).

So we might as well shutdown the Master server.

YOU CAN STILL PLAY!!
Check the console command: connect
You can type the IP of your servers directly there.

Also, those that might want to put up a master server again, remember that the FULL source is available here:
https://github.com/Daivuk/BaboViolent2

The master server / auto updater is also available on that github.

Thanks all for playing, it's been a great 6~7 years.

*Edit - Anette
A new master server is up, quote from jmainguys post:
Place the attached file in your bv2 install directory, mine for example was
C:\Program Files (x86)\BV2 ProClient
then overwrite the existing bv2.db file. Then launch your game like normal.

Sad to hear this but I saw it coming couple of years back. I have to admit I'm surprised the master server was online this long.

Thanks for hosting it all this time!

No master, no game. Too annoying to reach a server. At least for me.

Small tidbit of news here, talked to KingJ and he's willing to set up a new master server. Sent a PM to Daivuk about it and he's willing to help him set one up so all is not lost. I'll keep you all posted if I hear more about it.

Well, I've just got source from Daivuk. Will try to play with it on VM tomorrow. If everything will be fine, we'll have the new server on this weekend.

Sadly, I'm not linux guy. If there are some linux-experienced people wishing to help with building that stuff, it will be much appreciated. I'm still 'warlabs' in the Skype.

Also, you guys will have to create a 'fan' page of some sort, and start hosting your own version of BV2. With the proper IP address set in the database file.

The game is now* in the hand of the community Smile
The source I gave to Keta is a zip file of everything that was on the master server. We used to compile the source directly on the server. I am going to upload this to github tonight or tomorrow if I have time.

So everybody can grab and play with it. Obviously

Edit: Accidentally a word
Edit-Edit: Here are the links I gave Keta:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/5915535/bv2.zip
And a tool to help changing values in the local database (.db)

And we got the master server working, you will all need to edit your clients to connect to the new master server. Place the attached file in your bv2 install directoy, mine for example was

C:\Program Files (x86)\BV2 ProClient

then overwrite the existing bv2.db file. Then launch your game like normal.

Wow ok that was fast.
I think that db contains the old address. Certain its the right file?

Edit: Nevermind, I screw up with my local files...

Ty Daivuk for your assistance with this, you are the man.

Anyway you can host this on your updater, so people connecting to the old updater will get this automatically?

Daivuk, I'll send you file with correct version (which will be rolled to clients) by the mail. I'm still trying to fully figure out update process conditions.

Jmainguy makes me blush Embarassed

Now seriously.
Thanks to Daivuk (and probably other RndLabs guys, too) for warning about coming changes before they are made, publishing master server sources and help on understanding how the system works.
Many thanks to Jmainguy, who immediately provided hosting and did all the work to set up master server there.
And thanks to Crapper who notified us about issue, so we did everything so quickly.

Updater successful Smile

So you guys are going to have to change the Updater version, or it might do wrong things when we connect to the new server... (So far it works fine tho)

On the server, in the Updater/fl.db
db version, change that to 9

Also make sure that the bv2.db in that folder is also db version at 9.

Then kill Updater, restart it!

Have been waiting for this for a long time, figured you guys had forgotten you were still hosting the server, and was just a matter of time before it would get shut down.
Thanks to everyone who have/is working on getting a new master server up. Although I barely play any more, it is nice to know the game is still there Very Happy

Haven't updated my babo client yet, but is there also a way to get remote to work with a new master server? I would like to be able to still use it. Smile

The source code is available so there is definitely a way, we are using sqlite editor to edit the .db's where the ip's were inside.
