I just tried them both, and none connects. Using v1.10 here. I'll try this evening again, hopefully there's a change by then.

Update: I just found them in the list, the ports have changed... oops... look fine [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The [GEN]erals clan would love to beta test the linux dedicated server, I have a dedicated box just waiting here for the linux server to be released. I'll be willing to dedicate an IP address on my network to beta testing the linux server...

Feel free to e-mail me at srosebush[at]desynched[dot]org

Thanks.

P.S. I also could not get on any of the linux servers.

investigating...
i can remotly connect to the server console from ASE so the server can talk to the outside world. We're trying to follow a few tracks given by our friends from ritual. Will see later tonight.

Now I can see the server from Multiplay.co.uk Holomatch TEST 1 and I can connect without probs.

It is listed as the linux server in all seeing eye.

However, I can see the server in ASE but not from the ingame browser.

On the server everything seems fine.

Question to Ritual:

Will the linux server's source code be released?? Usually things run better if they can be compiled for the system you run them on, or is that what the beta is, source, I hope its not just a binary?

EDIT: Multiplay.co.uk Linux Server does work and quite better than other win server I've been on. I think Ritual did a good job on this.

The Multiplay.co.uk linux server runs fine [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img],
but the speedboot's haven't any effect on this server. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

A serversetting problem or a linux serverbug? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

If you have any problems getting on the server, master down etc, you can download URLGameStarter and then click the links on http://gaming.multiplay.co.uk
Any feedback / requests you can grab us IRC #mpukhosting on QuakeNet or email clanservers@multiplay.co.uk

Just added a CTF server so there is now:[*] Multiplay.co.uk :: CTF #1 (Linux BETA)[*] Multiplay.co.uk :: Holo #1 (Linux BETA)

Hmm looks like URL parsing on this forum is broken so ip's are:[*] Multiplay.co.uk :: CTF #1 (Linux BETA) => 212.42.10.135:36431[*] Multiplay.co.uk :: Holo #1 (Linux BETA) => 212.42.10.135:36330

So, after stripping out all the custom levels, skin paks, the extra locpak2 that came with the game and a few mods, i finally was able to get onto a linux server.

1) as gen said the boots dont work.

2) i kept getting an 2 errors that said

R_ValidateSkelAnimAndFrame: no such frame 11 in anim 83 (name C:/Projects/EF2/EF2_SOURCE/base/models/char/base-male2/phaser-d)

and

TIKI_ValidateSkelAnimAndFrame: nos such frame 11 in anim 83 (name: C:/Projects/EF2/EF2_SOURCE/base/models/char/base-male2/phaser-d) in tiki 'models/char/dm_munro.tik'

3) No pain sounds when damaged.

Hey guys,

a quick update. A new build was just sent out, and you should now be able to connect to Jolt's servers just fine. One of the issues we're currently looking into is that it's not possible to load aah_ctf_tartirus without the server crashing.

I realize that a lot of you can't wait to get your hands on the Linux server, but we feel that testing it in a very small and controlled environment before starting a public beta is the best way to go in this case. Don't worry though, it won't be long until the beta is made available to the general public.

Thanks everyone for your help, and keep the feedback coming!

All Multiplay servers are now updated to b2 but to add to what badman said dont vote for any of the following maps as it will crash the servers atm:
dm_quarterdeck
dm_sewer
aah_ctf_tartirus

The guys are working on it and I'm sure they will have it fixed in no time.
