Forum News and Forum Rules / SWBFgamers.net
« on: June 13, 2017, 08:11:35 PM »
I have purchased the domain name: www.SWBFgamers.net

There is no www service at the moment (I will probably have it point to here), but I have made a pointer from teamspeak.swbfgamers.net to our teamspeak server (no more needing to memorize those numbers...)

I am also working to support Aradam's work for his shell for ftp and autoinstall of addon maps, so ftp.swbfgamers.net will be operational soon.

If anyone has any more ideas of what we can do with it, let me know.

Maybe I could have (should have) used one of our other domains for these things, but I'm not sure...

Forum News and Forum Rules / Domain Name Renewal
« on: May 28, 2017, 08:50:25 PM »
Our domain name (SWBFgamers.com) was up for renewal in January 2019, which seems like just around the corner  now...so I have renewed it for 10 more years after that!  So we are going to be around one way or another until at least January, 2029  :cheers:

Public Square / PS2 player award
« on: April 09, 2017, 02:54:24 PM »
I think we have enough PS2 players to warrant a badge just for PS2 players.  Anyone care to whip one up?  I need a large (not too large) and a thumbnail (refer to current awards for sizes) in png format.   :cheers:

Forum News and Forum Rules / SWBFdepot is now open!
« on: April 08, 2017, 10:00:27 AM »
SWBFdepot.com is a file storage service with similar functionality to dropbox--but just for the SWBF1/2 community.

Modders and asset compilers can request an account from me to upload their assets to a private folde, then create anonymous share links to their assets/maps/etc.

What you should know:  I host this from my home with a QNAP home server.

What this means:
  If it goes down, it could be from a power outage at my house or it may mean my IP address has changed. Let me know if it is not accessible--if my IP address has changed, I just need to update my DNS record and all will be back to normal.

This also means that all transfers count against my data limit for the month, so I ask that you don't make mass downloads to back up the file server.  I will back it up locally, so it will be a safe system.

Finally, this also means that you will not be bombarded by advertisements when you just want to get an asset.

For asset uploaders:  The asset link will need to be modified for the correct port number.  There appears to be a bug in the QNAP software that inserts a wrong port.  Just let me know and I will help out.

Thanks to DEVISS for uploading a bunch of assets already.

I have a 10 year lease on the domain name www.SWBFdepot.com, so these assets will be around for a long time.  I can renew it again in 10 years if SWBF/internet/computers as we know them still exist!  After that, well, I will be a pretty old guy, but we can talk about that later  ;)

SWBFspy: Internet Master Server Discussions / PS2 DNAS project
« on: April 06, 2017, 08:11:09 PM »
hi Led this is what i gather so far for this dnas server

What you'd need to run the DNAS replacement is a webserver (apache2 for example)
running php and SSL. You'd need three IP addresses to run a full server,
one for each gateway. The possibility to install your own ssl certificates is a must.

Debian Linux, just that I enabled the old ciphers for Apache2
There's one thing to keep in mind nowadays.
PS2 is a quite old system and doesn't support modern ciphersuites for SSL.
so you need to make sure that old weak ciphers are enabled if you run a DNAS
replacement server.
For Apache2 this can be done with the following directive in your site's configuration:

SSLCipherSuite ALL

I didn't spend the time to analyse which of the ciphers is the least weak
and is still supported by PS2. It's a good idea to restrict the directive
to the DNAS site and not to use it on the entire server.

Another very important thing is that your webserver MUST be able to send
HTTP/1.0 headers.
I know that this is a problem for modern installations of nginx for example.
The DNAS replacement server is currently running on a VPS on internet.
It has 3 IPs (one for each gateway). System is a current Debian Linux,
just that I enabled the old ciphers for Apache2.
you need php to run it. Thé Best is tout as No23

i looked on youtube and there are lots of tutorials how to setup this stuff on linux.

Forum News and Forum Rules / File Service for SWBF related Files
« on: April 03, 2017, 05:13:27 PM »
Hi SWBFgamers,

I am investigating starting a file service (like dropbox) for sharing SWBF related files.  One way to share will be through links to specific files.  This would be hosted at my house, meaning that there will be some days where the electricity is off or something, and the service would not be available.  (Usually only a couple of days per year.)  It also means that when my home IP changes, I would need a day to figure it out and update my DNS service to get the domain name to the new IP.

I have some questions for our community:

1) would you use this?  (as a modder or downloader)

2)  what name should we use?

Here are some suggestions from me

and from Unit33

Do you have a name preference?  or Are there other names that would be better?

Forum News and Forum Rules / Gametracker
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:17:02 PM »
Hi SWBFgamers,

I had to blow up and reinstall everything on a new hard drive for my computer, and I noticed that Gametracker stats that I have on the front page were not showing up. 

A short visit to www.gametracker.com will validate your web browser, and then you can see them again.

I still don't see a picture of the current map though...

Forum News and Forum Rules / SSL / https
« on: March 19, 2017, 05:58:58 PM »
Hi SWBFgamers,

If you are a FireFox user, you may have recently noticed that you get a warning about an 'un-secure site' or something similar.  To 'secure' the site, we would need to get an SSL license so that our site says https on it.

This is a relatively new issue related to Google pushing SSL certification.  Since we are a hobby website with no e-commerce, we will not get the SSL (due to the cost). 

Just an FYI

Do you prefer certain settings for SWBF2?

Heroes?  Space Maps?

Please give suggestions for the SWBFgamers.com SWBF2 server here.   :cheers:
