server.war2.ru + feedback
« on: April 01, 2021, 01:24:55 AM »
Is it me or is server.war2.ru not working?  It's imperative to get this up asap.

Also, I had to reinstall war2 the other day and it's a huge pain in the ass.  The download links on en.war2.ru don't work.  Luckily Burnt made a post to use the FTP site with a link, but that's a giant list of 722 versions of the installer that you have to sift through. 

On the positive side - I like the replacement option to have the subtle "thuc" sound instead of "dong".  If you don't know what I'm talking about, this replaces the huge DOOONNNNNNGGGG sound when you're in chat and click one of the menu options like Join.  Normally you click Join and your whole house rumbles and the neighbors call the cops.  They replaced that sound with a quick tttthhuc sound.

Let me know what happens.
Some players have a problem when it stops on 'Checking versions'. It happens under wine on linux in all cases.
Otherwise probably war2 located in "Program Files" can cause that.

Yes, ftp has some problems last months, i think to probably move it somewhere, probably to http instead. Not both ftp://ftp.war2.ru and http://ftp.war2.ru should work fine.

Nice to see! I thought I've been the only one who consider that "DOOONNNNNNGGGG" sound not the best solution for war2...

To be honest, FTP doesn't have any problems at all.

It's just that Google Chrome and similar browsers hate FTP and want to throw it away, which creates problems for non-advanced users

Oops.  User error.  I was talking about http://server.war2.ru/status/.  It works.
