He was an active member here, and looking around on the forum logs, I noticed he just deleted his account without saying nothing since long time ago =(

He still plays with us or somewhere else?

Yes, again, this happened, and I am sorry.

After the efforts of the provider of the server used for this website, they were completely unable to get access to the servers located at the old datacenter (ServerAxis at Miami). Apparently the company just dissappeared or something like that, without any explanations.

Now, they decided to move our services to another datacenter, at Phoenix, which seems to be working fine enough.

The bad news here, is that we lost a couple of posts (lol) and probably some attachments, because my last useful backup was from the weekend before this happened (files), and the past night for the forum database (posts).

But we are back, and fortunately not everything got lost because I found these backups.


Please tell me if you see any issues

I hope to see you around again.

Hello everybody who still visits this site. Maybe you are interested in knowing what happened during these days, and why this time the forum didn't came back.

Now, the long story short, is like this:

My VPS (server) provider had some emergency maintenance like previous times. Sometimes these are just network side, and sometimes hardware side, when the server needs a reboot (like this time).

Unfortunately, this was a coincidence with a filesystem corruption on a hard disk of my machine.

Particularly this disk had a file containing the encryption passwords of the server hard disk, which I need at the boot time of the server.

Fortunately, after some digging, I was able to recover a copy of this file, and restore the server.

Maybe someone will ask about backups...

Backups of this file... no, I didn't had any to be honest.

Backups of the site, yes, I had some of them, but the last one was of a couple of months ago, because my backup script failed since that time (bad luck, again) and I hesitated to restore this old copy.


I apologize for this, and I hope to see you soon again here.

Announcements - Anuncios / USA servers shutdown
« on: June 25, 2014, 03:03:51 pm »
These maybe are sad news for some people, or the remaining players at the USA servers.

Due to the lack of population at the USA servers, and other reasons (mostly lack of time and provider issues) I've decided to shutdown all of them. This includes Algiers, UrT Nights, Dressing Room and the Team Survivor server. This was predictable, since most people is going to 4.2 now.

Sooner than later, probably I will be running a new instance(s) of the game at Singapore or maybe somewhere at Europe or Dallas, but most probably these will be 4.2 ones to see if we can keep it up with the flow of the players.

The shutdown will be around this weekend.

Note: The Germany Server will remain untouched.

Announcements - Anuncios / Urban Terror 4.1 FAQ
« on: December 23, 2013, 09:23:51 pm »
What is this?

This is a Frequently Asked Questions about the drop of the 4.1 version in favour of the 4.2 builds.
It will be updated according to new suggestions or changes. Hopefully it will be useful for some players.


What will happen with 4.1?

The day January 1, 2014 the Master Server List will stop working. This means that you won't be able to see any servers in the server list of the game, including the TLWS 4.1 ones (at the day December 23, the Algiers, Dressing Room and Germany servers are at the 4.1 version).
This doesn't mean that you won't be able to play anymore. As expected, there will be a lot of 4.1 servers running, including some TLWS ones after the shutdown.


What can I do if I want to play 4.1?

If you are using the official builds of the game, you can open the console and put "/cl_master master.quake3arena.com" and press Enter. This will change the original master server to the quake3arena one. This master server mantains a list of servers for games derived of Quake 3 (including UrT). Is a little bit slow because the list is bigger, but you will be able to see servers again.
If you are on some custom build (like me, using the optimized ones from the www0.org site, now dead), the previous command may not help you, because the game will be still trying to retrieve the list from the official server. As a workaround, you may try to force your system to resolve the master.urbanterror.info host to the IP from the master.quake3arena.com server (currently 192.246.40.56 and hopefully won't change) editing your hosts file in your Operative System.
Note: This method won't be explained and is out of the scope of this FAQ.


What can I do if I want to play in the 4.1 TLWS servers?

You can try one of the previous workarounds and also, you can add the TLWS servers to your favorites. Remember, the list is here: http://forum.tlws.org/announcements-anuncios/current-servers-at-tlws/


What TLWS servers will be at 4.1 after the shutdown?

Most probably the Germany and the Algiers ones.


What TLWS servers will be at 4.2 after the shutdown?

Currently the Team Survivor and the Nights LA are at 4.2. The Dressing Room instance will be updated to 4.2 in one or two weeks.


When will TLWS drop support of 4.1?

It depends. I will mantain the legacy ones until they start to get empty. I have no idea how quick this process will be, maybe one week or one month, but hopefully the people will mantain these legacy servers alive.


I want to play 4.2 at Germany and/or Algiers

Depending on the previous process, I will decide to run similar instances for 4.2
If the 4.1 servers get enough players, maybe I will run some extra servers: One similar to the Germany one at Netherlands and one similar to Algiers at Kansas City or LA.
If the 4.1 servers get empty, I will replace the instances with 4.2 ones.

BREAKING NEWS! :D

This is kinda a newsletter :P

FS moving to 4.2

So, apparently FS decided to move everything with a loooooooooong notice (2 weeks?? ffs ¬¬ this is a little bit ridiculous) to 4.2 killing their Master server list for 4.1. Most people still play 4.1, but they don't care about the players anymore.

http://www.urbanterror.info/news/437-end-of-the-4-1-era/


I wonder how much time our 4.1 servers will have population after this time.

I guess the regulars have already the server in their favorites, so they can still play. But this won't happen with other players with the default configuration. So, no new players.

Particularly I am interested in suggestions for the Algiers/Germany servers. The Dressing Room probably will have the same fate as the LA server moving quickly to 4.2


About the 4.2 server at Los Angeles rank

Quick news. Yesterday I updated this server to 4.2.016. Apparently this reduced the population to almost zero, since for some reason (the server list filters the master list for your version???), a big majority of 4.2.015 players were still playing with us and this scaled the ranking of the server to the sky xD
Now, we are in the normal trend.

FFA server will dissappear and a TS 4.2 will start

And talking about the ranks. The FFA server is empty almost all the time. With the first point of this list, I decided to stop running it.

In exchange, I will be running a TS instance with 4.2 at Kansas. It seems that is the most popular game mode in UrT.

The IP:Port will be this   173.208.150.125:27960

So, default port, same IP than Dressing Room. Once I finish configuring this stuff in some minutes, I will be updating the server list thread http://forum.tlws.org/announcements-anuncios/current-servers-at-tlws/

Also please make suggestions about the settings for this server. I have no idea what ones are cool to enjoy it.

General / 4.1 vs 4.2 situation
« on: November 27, 2013, 12:34:32 am »
Looking at this graph

http://www.urtstats.net/42vs41.servers.php?duration=month

The number of 4.1 servers has been getting smaller quickly for the past month. Also, the gametracker positions for the TLWS servers are going up (mainly the Germany one). This means that more people is playing somewhere else.

Also, about our LA instance:



I guess moving to 4.2 had some kind of unexplainable "success" (despite almost nobody plays there).


So, this thread is to discuss what are your suggestions about scheduling a replacement of the 4.1 instances.

As I've said some time ago, my idea is to move the Dressing Room server (if someone still play that one xD) and the FFA one.

B3 at UrT 4.2!

Little update

B3 is now alive at the "NIGHTS LA" server. I've moved the server from the "test" port (27964) to the "production" port (27962), as always. Now is like this:

69.85.93.51:27962


Also, you can try to use

nights.tlws.org:27962

All are equivalent

After trying to reuse the database of the 4.1 instance, I found that my GUID was different to the old one, despite using the same qkey file.
So, as expected, I decided to use a clean database for this =(
For admins, you know, please ive me your new ID and we are ready.

Finally, if some regular read this post, I am sorry for not writing a notice about the quick move. I hope you will start to enjoy the new 4.2 instance, and probably I will start to move some other servers to this version soon.



UrT 4.2!

Well, after all this rumors about the 4.1 version dissappearing, and the player base moving slowly (really slowly TBH) to the 4.2 builds, I've started to do some little tests with the new version.

So, currently there is a new server running at the LA address but with a different port:

69.85.93.51:27964

Also, you can try to use

nights.tlws.org:27964

algiers.tlws.org:27964

All are equivalent


Of course, at this moment isn't running b3. But it has the classic rotation and so.

Please tell me how it goes :P

The bad news. You know what will happen with the server the next week u_u

Hunter.S.Zombson: using two players in the same game
dsa_UrT_Player: great logic....

Hunter.S.Zombson: you admited to cheating
Hunter.S.Zombson: but you won't whent he demo is going

(And then here, was the last straw)
Hunter.S.Zombson: infact you pretty much suck at this game

Hunter.S.Zombson: no you're not
Hunter.S.Zombson: what's your name on the forum then
(DEAD) dsa_UrT_Player: !kick hunter
Hunter.S.Zombson was kicked


And I decided to mantain the issue like this. But of course, the guy went back. In the meanwhile I was reviewing the demo of that "caw_urt_player" from LoupGarou

Hunter.S.Zombson: lol I love how much this clan rages
Hunter.S.Zombson: n00b dsa is gone 2w00t
Hunter.S.Zombson: killer is alright by me because he's not a whiney bitch
Hunter.S.Zombson: but every admin I come across on this server is a giant bleeding pussy with lots of sand
Hunter.S.Zombson: it's so sad
Hunter.S.Zombson: oh look  caw  is back

Hunter.S.Zombson: are you another ragy admin?

« on: May 07, 2013, 12:42:23 am »
Ago 25 2013


Updates

- I will accelerate the process of shutting down the other server. Probably tomorrow (Monday Aug 26). If I have some time I will rewrite something at the source code to advertise about the new server.
- B3 is running now at the new server
- germany.tlws.org now points to the new server.





The new server is ready

82.199.155.57



Bad news: The old server will be deleted in the next days (Monday-Wednesday maybe).
Good news: The new server seems to be better than the old one =)

Finally, there are some steps to finish the process:

- Currently there is no b3 running there. I will use this chance to update it to the last version too.
- As a reminder, the database will be cleaned. Anyway I will keep a backup of the last one (from the old server).
- When the old one gets shutdown, I will point germany.tlws.org to this IP address (I wonder if someone used it).


If you have some friends playing at the old server, tell them about this new one :D


That's all for now :P

The provider has sent the customers a mail about a possible move of datacenter. Long story.

This, unfortunately means an IP change for the most popular TLWS server, which is sad for me.

I am almost sure this will be a yes, and will be moved in the next 1-3 months according to their plan.

The new datacenter will be located at the Netherlands.

UPDATE 16 Mar 2013

A little status update of all this stuff:
- The FFA server got moved, and I preserved his IP address which is wonderful.
- Uptown, as expected is a piece of trash for bots.
- Time per map was increased at Germany because that server receives more traffic than the LA ones.
- Talking about Germany, after a couple of months, there is no price increase on their services, let's see...
- The Dressing Room server, forum and other stuff got moved to better hardware.


And the pending stuff again:

- Try some 3rd party maps.
- Update b3 in a couple of servers (and try the new 1.9 version, which suppossedly fixes some stuff that according to them is buggy, lol).
- The bomb server, probably a sniper/survivor server.
- And surprise, I want to run a server for haxxors :D I mean, a place where everybody can do whatever they want :P

I did the changes for the cyclemaps at Germany and Nights.
- 15 minutes rounds
- Added uptown (Let's see if this doesn't crash).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 1 Jan 2013

The Austria server has been powered off.

The new FFA instance is pending :P



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 22 Dec 2012

I will be doing some of the changes below in the next days.

- The server at Austria will be shutdown. Probably this will happen in the next month, but maybe I will do it in the next couple of days, depending on the policy of cancellation of my provider.
- The FFA server will be moved soon to Kansas. This will happen in the next couple of weeks. I will be running a new instance there, and people can start to play and see how it goes.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lots of things are happening, and I have some ideas for the end of the world, that I need to tell you... xD

In order to consolidate the servers running around the world, and to give less tasks for the admins, I have some ideas:
  • Shut down the Austria server: This one is almost abandoned, and it has almost the same latency than the Germany one. Probably this won't be good for ubernoob lol, but most euro people is playing at Germany.
  • Moving the FFA server: This, just to get it together with the dressing room one at Kansas. This isn't completely decided, but is part of getting rid of the network problems at San Jose... (Yes, this one is still hosted there).

And other pending stuff:
  • The bomb server: Sooner or later I will run it u_u Most probably at Kansas, which apparently has been working fine these months.
  • Updating B3 for the Germany server and other locations with B3 < 1.8 xD

And even more remote things in my head:
  • Moving again the Nights server at LA, to Kansas: Apparently this one isn't repopulating like before when I needed to move it, and I am afraid that it can evolve in another empty zone...
  • Start another server at Italy: I have a spare box there, and I love their network. Some european people love the ISP there, because it has nice routing to several countries.
  • Survivor server: Yes, we had one like a year ago or sth. Maybe can be cool to run one of these again?
  • Version 4.2: Apparently most people dislike it, and still is in a patching phase... (buggy like hell? o_O) But if some people like it, maybe one day we will be running one of these :P

And some rumors:
  • Probably my provider at Germany will receive a pricing increase from their upstream provider due to the lack of IPv4 space... So, probably they will:
    a) Ask for more money.
    b) Just kick me out because I have a promotional plan with them instead of a regular one.
    c) Stay as is...
    Hopefully the last option, but I will know in the next months.
  • Moving the Kansas server: Yes, how ironic... Well, the idea behind this, is to getting a dedicated server even more powerful instead of the current one, but trying to preserve the IP addresses. At this moment isn't needed, but as I said, this are just ideas for the next months.


That's all I can remember now...

Finally, I've decided to cancel the SJC server. So we will migrate, or.... we will migrate  :D

So, we have until the day 30-31 to take a decision about where will be hosted the new one. That date the server will be shutdown.

I will be setting 2-3 servers with the same configuration, and I hope you will give me some feedback about how you feel them. Hopefully I will get all done this night and I will post here the new addresses to try.


UPDATE

I've configured one instance in the same server where the Dressing Room server is hosted


KANSAS CITY

IMPORTANT
After the last problems with the San Jose server, that apparently are 90% fixed now, I've decided to move the UrT stuff to another place. The possibilities are:

- Moving both servers to a new one at LA like the Algiers one, which has been running solid since long time ago.
- Moving dressing room to Kansas City and the UrT Nights to LA.
- Moving dressing room to Kansas City and the UrT Nights leave it there.

At this moment, I am more with the #2 and then #3.

At this moment, I've created a new instance of Dressing room at Kansas. You can try it here:

142.54.178.174:27962

Please give me your feedback if you can.

If everything goes well, I will shutdown the old one in the upcoming week. Then I will take the option 2 or 3 for the other server.

Update (11 Oct):

And the old Dressing one is gone!
Please tell me how is going the UrT Nights one (I think it has the same issues xD)
