Hey, got myself set up :)
So let’s give you a quick run thru of the current status of the list servers.
As many of you may know, the Contrabandent List Server provided by Burger is still experiencing difficulty connecting to other List Servers so isn’t “mirroring” the network as a whole. I have spoken with Burger and he says he will look into it so functionality of his List Server should return sometime soon.
In the mean time I have provided a patch that users can apply to remove Contrabandent from there JJ2, you can get it at:http://nimmy-online.com/listservers
Once his List is restored, you can re-add his list by applying the default patch.
I have also had people ask me why there servers have been listed twice on the list servers, one of the new features announced last month was the automatic removal of pinging servers, one of the bugs in this is that once a server is de-listed, it STILL kept getting pinged every 5 minutes, so if your game suddenly appeared a game, the list server would see your server is alive, re-list your old entry, and also add your new entry you just created. This is a minor bug and should be fixed in the coming weeks. But isn’t it great now that pinging servers have gone?
One of the issues brought to me recently was the fact of the amount of patches released recently with Contrabandent experiencing problems, and I have been doing some work with Alberto, registering some more domains and so fourth. The plan we have to bring forward (myself and Alberto), based on his Intelligent patch technology, the last and final list server patch needed. If a list server went down, or changed address you wouldn’t need to update your jj2 again, as it could be done by us changing a setting at our end. We will be finalizing it in the coming month or two, and hopefully get some users to help test it before pushing it out to everyone.
Thanks for your time, I’ll keep you up to date :)
