Gamespy Emulation is Shutting Down (08.2017)
Nosek
Good job with the new emulation server. I'm hosting my info server to spread the message about QTracker shutting down GS.

However I'm not advising anyone to edit their hosts file since this can be problematic and it isn't exactly foolproof. Has the final implementation been decided yet? A simple click-to-run solution is really needed.

I've also set new welcome messages on all servers I host.
Plissken has created a .bat file for simple change: vietcong.tk (see patch_serverlist.bat on top)

I created a simple pacth that replaces the hosts file and saves the old one in the directory: C: \ Windows \ System32 \ drivers \ etc.
You should not need to disable the antivirus.

This will remove the old link to master.gamespy.com and add the new one.

Can be used as often as you like because it will always remove any link to master.gamespy.com without overwriting it.

Extract the two files contained in the .rar file into a folder and run Win-Game server-Vietcong.bat as an administrator.

The pc will restart and you will have the new server list in the game.

Let me know if it works well please Cool

Tested in Windows 10 Pro latest release.

Hey Paolo, see my previous post. Plissken has already created such a script. Also, a restart shouldn't be required.

Just overwrite it manually and enter the command in cmd
Ipconfig / flushdns, no restart required
Pfft

If someone has an OpenWRT router, edit the hosts directly in it.

I know there are many ways to modify the hosts file, including the @PlisskenPfft script that in Windows 10 is often blocked by the SmartScreen filter and antivirus, I also know that no restart is needed (I can also remove the restart command) , But if anyone looks for something simple and safe this is or at least I think.

I asked if it works, if you do not like it do not use it, use what you want sry.

It works? Have you tried it? Smile

I do not use hosts in windows, I have many records and if I have multiple records in windows hosts, using a script that replaces the original file, I would lose them.
About 70 records Grin

Of course this is right if you want me to show you my set to disable telemetry Wink. But I think anyone who has this kind of problem does not need scripts because you already know how to do it, but many people do not even know what the hosts file is Smile

@Brchi Thanks, but please be specific. If you meant `enctype2_encoder` to be the name of the function, I can find only https://github.com/Poweruser/PowerServer/blob/master/src/main/java/de/poweruser/powerserver/gamespy/encoders/EncType2Encoder.java. Did you mean this?

Regarding the source code:

I'm not sure anymore if it's a good idea to make the master practically available to anyone.
There is a rumor that some groups of players want to host their own master server in parallel. I don't want to support this.

A better solution could be what I also want to do with the community hub in future: A chain of trusted hosts.
Means, share the binary (and source possibly) with a few trusted people. Then I'm no longer the only one responsible. Should I ever stop hosting, another trusted host can take over.

What do you think?

OndraG wrote:
.../EncType2Encoder.java. Did you mean this?

Yep, that's what I found too and it helped me to fix it.
If you can't figure it out, I'd be willing to help but you'd have to become one of the trusted hosts then.

These are the rumors? That one lady was talking?


#VCG_freddy #WIN10 : koennen nich alle server von mir sein, dieser kack homi
TimmEr : ist kozoroh auch von homi?
#VCG_freddy #WIN10 : ja hostet er auch
TimmEr : nice
TimmEr : 30 ms bestimmt auch
#VCG_freddy #WIN10 : der wollte erst nen eigenen emulator nur mit seinen servern machen der spinner.


VCG_freddy, are you sure I need it? I do not need it.
Probably my time has come to leave this community,turn off servers,spend time with the family and say goodbye.

It was not @VCG_freddy.

However, that shows even more that there are quite some frictions in this community...

It's not easy for me to decide.

I thought this community was about something else.
I took servers and websites, otherwise they would be over
Vietcong1.cz, KozoRoh Server + web, 30min.server + web,
I host my friends servers, I do not have enough time for the game myself, but I keep it running for free, is that wrong? Maybe somebody thinks yes.
I do not do it for myself,no profit, I have nothing more than a good feeling.

When I once asked, it was ended vietcong1.cz, the answer was, no one contributed to running.

I do not understand the behavior of some here.

I agree. This would finally provide some needed redundancy.

Not reasonable at all to make such decision on what one person said, possibly in affect. Otherwise I have no idea why Freddy said that.

What do you think?

In that case, I advise you to certainly not publicly share your work yet!

Take your time to think about it. Often, it helps to better understand the problems, and to take the best decision... Wink

Hey Homi,

i dont wanted to hurt your "feelings".

As Brchi has said about the "rumours": I was just hearing about them on some servers and i have to say, that i don't know if they are true. I just wanted to say, that this is a bad idea. Because it would be very shitty, when we would have "two" serverlists and our little community splitted. It was just a little senseless (jokely) conversation between me and Tim.

But in case, that there is anything true on this "rumours": Then i stiill tell u that this is a very stupid idea, Homi!

And yes: Respect on that u host 11 servers and some web-spaces for free, but -
and with this i talk for all Vietcong Players - please work together with Brchi!

#VCG_freddy

Sorry for hard but true words!

It makes no sense to explain the intent when he did not understand the point, why would I run two independent master servers.
Backup your important data at home? : D
It would serve as a backup only, not for the purpose of splitting servers.

Why I should not understand the difference between a back-up server and an own emulation server @Homi.
I got the information as i asked some players on one of your servers (think was last week) why Homi not switched to new serverlist: "Homi want an own Emulation-Server for his servers"...
I don't wanted to say sorry to you because as i said it was just joke conversation middle of night, so i couldnt understand why u took it so serious...
But my friends told me to explain u the situation if i dont want to be the guilty of splitted community...
