  1. Right, little update on my last post. I managed to get tunngle working soon after the last post and was waiting to get around to installing the game (my laptop doesnt have a CD/DVD drive so took time). As I went to install it last week I realised I already had it installed from when I tried to make my own server (failed to - it logs in and can host a game..but I cant code!). So I went online and found Newlords. He proceeded to give me the very asskicking I asked not to be given if I get online 8). Amazing after so many years I remembered some of the shortcuts and certain actions, they were l
  2. Hey guys. Great to see people still keeping it alive. Despite being busy as anybody else / everybody else I still find myself checking back here and wanting to get back in to playing. I think I will install EBFD using one of my many sets of CDs lying around (heck, I had at least 4 sets of the game!). At least one of them must be still working. I will give Tunngle a go seeing as most of you seem to be talking about that. I hope it all works on my Win7 setup. Oh, and if I do make it on go easy on me, last time I played was...well, about 5-7 years I reckon.
  3. Shame a server isnt up and running reliably. For some reason I dont want to get involved in the hamachi type things. I would try to come back and meet up with some oldies and any newbs around.I wish I wasnt so useless at programming myself. It was this mood that made me try to make a server myself.
  4. Excellent news! I will definitely come back and have a go, although I have forgotten how to control the game, its been so long... A big thank you to you for sorting it out, both Voodybaby and Gruntman, and of course RA too.
  5. I gave up early, early January because I heard that we will be getting RA's server. I still feel guilty not publishing the work done so far.
  6. No, it was always meant to be able to change the environment around it, i.e. blow stuff up. Thing is its not as big a deal as you might think. Projector is a fun unit to play with but very easy to defeat. Most games played online are over too quickly to involve projectors, and once the enemy realise you are using projectors they are easily defeated. But they can be fun to mess around with.
  7. Ah wow Sean. Thanks for that. Very well laid out and easy to understand website. The protocol seems identical from what I have seen. I will post my code so far and hope some saints can help with that too!
  8. The first server, like a directory server, tells the client where to look for the game server for EBFD. Currently from XWIS this is in the form of an IP. If it can be changed to a domain name that resolves to an ip, which I guess it should, then that should be ok. But I dont know if that would work for sure or not. RA would need to try adding in the domain name that Voodoobaby gives him and see if that works. As it is, I think its a better idea to just get the static ip if thats possible as at least then we know it will work. RA might not be too interested in compiling his code again and again
  9. Sorry about the delay in replying. I also want to have the source code and supporting stuff uploaded soon too. I havent worked on this for about a month and a half or so, and thats not good. The best type of people who could help are programmers who know what they are doing. I have hacked my was this far. So anyone out there good with ANCI C who can help will be gratefully received. I think with a few more weeks of work the basic server could be up and running with nothing other then joining hosts and starting games. As soon as I get a bit of free time I will upload the files I used to get thi
  10. Find below the log of the communication between server and client when a client (game) joins the server. This is a "one client log" in that I only connected to the server with the one client at a time. Much better to test multiple clients at once to see how they interact. Most of the detailed and difficult communication actually happens directly between the clients (games) and not through the server. This is certainly true of the game when it starts. With this information I have managed to create a server that allows logging in and hosting a game reliably. Please note the "code" below is not f
  11. Hopefully server files will be with Voodoobaby soon. I have stopped working on mine after chrimbo in light of RAs server coming back online. Hopefully that is still happening.
  12. I am sure you can make a backup with pretty much any copy app, nero for example and use Daemon tools to mount and remove any copy protection. To be honest I dont think I have ever done an install like that. Why dont you instead install from your CDs and then use the NoCD patch (google it) to ensure your cds never get ruined? Although your option would be good in case you ever lost the CDs completely. Alternatively look at something like UltraISO to enable you to convert your current CD image format to something like .iso.
  13. Excellent news! I am not sure I can host it though. Sorry if that's the impression you got. I have a device that's stays on almost 24/7 but its a Linux box (ReadyNas Duo from Netgear) that might do the job, but I doubt his binaries are for Linux. I was going to ask you to host it if I completed my server! I wonder if there is anyone who could host it more permanently. I do have a windows server on which my website is hosted, but its a shared server and I don't even know how it works with putting normal executables on there, I doubt it would work... If needed I can host it for a few days initia
  14. Hey Kalony, nice to see your still alive and kicking. Hey all you lot. I came back a little while ago to see what was going on and it seems the server been down since april. I think I got that impression as a thread started around that time mentioning hamatchi or something. Either way, I realised it doesnt take more then a few days to get some binaries and email/upload/somehow pass them on if you are going to. RA was always a little hard to get hold of, bless him. So, I just recently started making another server. Basic one, is the aim, where people can play with whatever serial they want (don
  15. What RA did was good, but not impossible to replicate. It turns out these games use IRC to communicate with the servers, so once the ins and outs are deciphered it was quick and easy for him to make the server. If you dont have any luck with RA, it might be worth doing it yourselves. Shame at the time he didnt publish his findings at the time.
