Not like I actually care where the forum is - though it is easier if it's on the same as the standard Inf forums - just tell us where the new location is when you found a nice place for the COOP forums

What a BS. This whole 'backup' concept is flawed and anyone with a little bit of common sense would have noticed. What if that machine catches fire or is damaged in fire-fighting? What if it is hacked? What if a script runs amok on all file systems? etc. etc. To me, it sounds quite likely that both drives could fail simultaneously.
A backup is not a backup unless it is copied to a remote machine or stored on a tape in a safe.

When I post on a forum, I trust in the forum's hoster to store my posting (for which I spent valuable time) in a safe manner.
BU betrayed this trust. They ****ed up big time. And now they did it again. Which gives me the impression that they simply don't care.

And I surely don't want to have to backup everything I post here myself.

Mail them, or better let an established moderator (Beppo, Crowze) hand your mail toward them.

<rant> not that it changes anything </rant>

Hey, at least they are:
Quote:
..VERY, VERY, VERY sorry about this.
And they decided to:
Quote:
..take many steps to prevent this from ever happening again, including our host taking frequent snapshots of our database and storing them off of our server farm.
Also
Quote:
We understand that many of our hosted sites are going to be pissed and upset. All we can say is that we are very sorry and hope that you will continue to support us while we try to rebuild after this catastrophe.
And
Quote:
If you had hosted forums that have now been lost, please contact either hal or myself and we will get you set back up. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the lost time and effort. If there is anything we can do to help get you going again, please don't hesitate to ask!
Now who could be angry at those guys? As we say in German: "Na geh schon Du kleiner Rabauke" (guess it's impossible to translate properly)

Sorry for the slight thread necromancy, but what's up with Stinkmarders server? Both servers and the forum is down for quite a while now.

Hey guys, Im just wondering If anyone can post the "summon" code for spawning iron crates and AntiGrav boots so we can easily pass some "tricky jump" parts of Unreal and NaPali maps... (I can just spawn flashlight, scuba, shieldbelt and amplifier)

Thanks!!!

Wow, we are having this already the sixth year. It took INF less than five to get from version one to 2.9.

So here are some recent screenshots:

Yes it is.

Though, you know how it is. Not always easy to find co-players, but we had 7 or more people on board last weekend.

Man, I miss Stinkmarder's server.

I run a regular coop server Psych. I'd be pretty interested in discussing the needed setup for this to make it a voteable section on my server. Looks like fun.

Hey gopo, nice to see you being interested, although I'm not sure if that kind of gameplay would suit you (not for me to decide of course).

I'm not sure if you can make it votable. INF is as total conversion as TC can be, so it requires a server to exclusively run INF with Unreal/UT maps. But I don't know for sure however.

As for setting up a server. You need the INF Coop files. Additional set-up information is here. The Psytex mod is advisable, as it is a facelift to the aged game and all servers use it, but to make it easy to bring INF up to date it is best to use the Infiltration 2.9 CE 2011 installer.

Setting up a server might be tricky, so you can ask for help either here, or on the INF co-op forums. Though, these are quite inactive and it may take some time and perhaps several bumbs to get some answers (which is sad).

Let me ask you this before I even contemplate this: is the mod source considered open? I'll need to do some hack-n-slash to achieve what I'm considering.

When's the next match? I might try to drop in on NaPali this way with you guys.

It's not open unfortunately, but I guess it depends on what you want to do. Indigo makes pretty advanced stuff with his mutators. He rips things from the game and alters them. I don't think there should be a problem, but you can drop Beppo a PM and ask him (lead coder of Infiltration).

Some people would like to play Friday or weekend. Problem is, most players are from Europe and most games happen during the european evening hours. I don't know your location, but if it is NA, than it would be kind of early in the day for you.

You can use the online server browser for XploD's servers, to check if people are playing:

I'm EST, normally during the early afternoon there's players burning the the midnight oil in Europe so if you have time during the day you can catch a game. Unfortunately my new ISP has been giving me a hassle and I won't get connected for a few weeks. I'll be getting on as soon as I can tho. Can't wait.
