  1. Docker and Wine

    I would like to look into getting Docker and Wine to work together for the game server control panel we are using with our OVH machines. If we can achieve this, we can look into hosting game servers for Red Orchestra 2, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare along with other games that doesn't officially support Linux, but may work with Wine in the future. Thanks.
  2. Squad Server License

    I am going to try to get the applications sent out by Monday. Thanks.
  3. Squad Server License

    We are going to be applying for a Squad server license. You can read more about Squad server licenses here. This will allow our server to show up in the official server browser tab within Squad. Currently, our server only shows under the "Custom" server browser tab. After this is done and if successful, we will be officially starting our Squad division. Here's a list of places we need to apply: Dedicated Server License - For ensuring our hardware is strong enough to host the Squad server, etc. We do not have one of the hosts recommended by Squad. Server License - For the server license itself. Here's also a link to the guidelines. I will be gathering a team to work on our Squad division while we send out the applications and prepare. If you're interested in helping with Squad, please let me know! Thanks!
  4. 7.21.18.1

    Notes Made a few changes to the GFL projects database here. Projects Database Removed the "Completed" category and moved all completed projects to their previous category. Un-hid projects that were complete and hidden. Added a "Complete" badge to projects that have a valid completion date. Added a priority field along with proper formatting in the records listing & display (Low, Medium, High). Added a new format to the progress field. Cleaned the default record listing items. Thanks!
  5. Revamp The Rust Division

    For a couple months now, I've been trying to find ways to revamp the Rust division. At the moment, we have somebody in mind. However, I am unsure if they are going to be primarily focusing on Rust or Squad (both divisions need to be started). This individual is trying to develop a unique game mode within Rust that is similar to the Battlefield game mode. As we get closer to officially revamping the division, I will post updates here. If you're interested in helping with Rust, please let me know! We are looking for developers! Thanks!
  6. Hello everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know I will be having surgery next Monday, July 23rd. This surgery includes repairing the hernia I've had for years now (it has been more painful recently, sadly). I've also tried getting this fixed before. However, the surgeon I had back in New Jersey cancelled the appointment and were only making things more difficult afterwards. Therefore, I stopped trying after important life events came up (work business trips and moving to Texas). The new surgeon here in Texas seems a lot more promising and I got everything sorted out today (health insurance, payments, and so on). I am very confident things will work out and this surgery will be done Monday. This will affect my time for GFL next week as well. I may not be able to get on at all the first few days depending on the pain. I should be able to get on by the end of the week or if an emergency comes up. I just wanted to thank everybody for the support! Thanks!
  7. [PVKII] Changelog

    7-20-18 Added @NOT-LAW to admin! Congratulations @NOT-LAW and thank you for idling/playing on the server! This is the result of idling/playing on the server: Thanks!
  8. [PVKII] Changelog

    All PVKII's changelogs will be posted in here. Thanks.
  9. Hello, This thread will list all admins for our Pirates, Vikings, & Knights II US server. List @NOT-LAW (Steam). Thanks!
  10. Thank you for the support everyone!
  11. Hello everyone, as some of you may know, we have a Pirates, Vikings, & Knight II server. This server along with servers in games such as Fistful of Frags is/are mostly separated from the community itself meaning nobody involved with GFL play on the server. However, servers such as these also have a lot of potential in my opinion. The server occasionally fills up without anybody from GFL playing on it. For a while now I wanted to give somebody a chance at managing this server. The server has a lot of potential and if you simply idle on the server (which is highly recommended), it will fill up and possibly stay full for days like it has in the past. In my opinion, servers like these are easier to populate than servers in games such as CS:GO due to the amount of servers in the game. As manager, you should be trying to find active admins who will keep the server healthy along with heavily recruiting players from the game into GFL (the website, Discord, TeamSpeak, etc.). With that said, I would like for you to experiment with game servers themselves on a technical level. Learn how to set up Source Engine game servers on operating systems such as Windows and Linux. Learn how to configure the server. For example, add a plugin that'll give Members, Supporters, and VIPs perks so we can get players into the community and applying for member or donating. As for the game itself, it is a free-to-play game on Steam and the Steam store page can be found here. Please try it out if you're interested. Manager Requirements A Member+ for at least one month. A clean GFL record that includes being able to get along with others. Basic knowledge of Source Engine game servers on the technical side (SourceMod & MetaMod). Active on the server (joining it daily until the server is populated). If you're interested, please let me know! Thank you.
  12. My job got a small office in the city I live in and I went there for the first time today. It's nice actually talking to co-workers face-to-face instead of remotely the entire time. I'm probably going to start going there two times a week while working the other three days remotely. I believe that's a good balance lol.

     

    Also looking forward to my doctors appointment on Friday. Hoping I finally get surgery scheduled after that and get my hernia taken care of (after three years) :)

  13. I just wanted to let everyone know I won't be available this Friday from 11 AM until somewhere in the late afternoon. I have scheduled an appointment with a surgeon. After this appointment, we will schedule another appointment to have my hernia removed. This will result in me needing some time off as well. I will keep everybody updated. Thanks!
  14. Unfortunately not. The surgeon I had back in New Jersey cancelled the night before surgery (I had to call them to find out). Afterwards, they kept blowing me off and I just gave up. While having work business trips and moving, I didn't want to schedule anything. So that led to now. I'm hoping to get the surgery scheduled ASAP after the appointment on Friday. I have great health insurance now and the place I called sounds promising, so I'm hoping I don't run into issues like last time. Thanks for the support everyone!
  15. NFO Maintenance Events

    Hello, This thread will be used for posting NFO maintenance events that affect our servers hosted on NFO. Thanks.
  16. NFO Maintenance Events

    Early July 17th, 2018 Thanks.
  17. Not possible to join

    @rapperdan We no longer have a CS:GO US BHop server. I have updated the server list as well. Thanks.
  18. Looking for admins!

    I would also like to note that we don't have much administration access due to the servers being official. The best we can do is find the player's IP through ProCon (which you will be given access to if you become an admin) and block it through the server's firewall. We may try setting up a ranked server in the future which would give us access to more administration commands. However, these servers will not receive quick play. Therefore, the servers may not populate easily. EDIT I would also strongly suggest reporting hackers through Battlelog so EA/DICE bans them. Thanks!
  19. This is a long overdue apology

    I and I'm sure others appreciate the apology. This post shows how much you care about the work you do and your commitment (which is a very great thing). Though, I do think you're beating yourself up a bit too much over this (which isn't necessarily a bad thing in my opinion). Shit happens and people become busy with life/issues that leads to inactivity. In your case, your computer exploded. It happens. I hope everything goes well for you in the future! Also, do you plan on sticking around? P.S. I'm sorry for not writing more, I'm working at the moment and can't write much. I may edit this post after work. Thanks!
  20. New NFO Machine (Upgrade)

    Hello everyone, We have recently purchased a new NFO machine after the incident on June 24th. This machine will be costing us $10.00/m less than the old machine because we paid the one-time installation fee ($99.99). The new machine specs are the following: Processor - Intel Xeon E3-1275v6 @ 3.8 GHz RAM - 64 GBs Disk - 1000 GBs SSD Price - $164.98/m The old machine specs are the following: Processor - Intel Xeon E3-1270v5 @ 3.6 GHz RAM - 64 GBs Disk - 1000 GBs SSD Price - $174.98/m Here's a comparison site that compares CPU's single-thread performance. The E3-1275v6 has a score of 2,359 while the E3-1270v5 has a score of 2,169. Since SRCDS is mostly single-threaded, the single-thread performance of the CPU has the biggest effect on our game servers. Overall, our servers will be performing better on this new machine. I plan on moving some of the servers today (probably CS:S Surf RPG DM and CS:S Bunny Hop). I will make an announcement on the public Discord and reply to this thread once I trigger the moves. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be observing the peak CPU usage on both of our NFO machines. If possible, I'd like to cut down to one NFO machine in the United States (this will save us around $164.99/m as well). I will post another update in the next few weeks to say if this is possible or not. If possible, servers like Garry's Mod Breach will also be moved to the more powerful machine which will increase performance. The old machine (E3-1270v5) gets cancelled on July 11th, 2018. Therefore, we will need to have all the game servers moved off of that machine by then. I plan on having all the game servers moved well before then, though. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know! Thanks!
  21. New NFO Machine (Upgrade)

    Update We are currently moving our Garry's Mod TTT #1 server to the new NFO machine. The move should go quickly since there are only ~3 GBs of custom files on the server. I will reply again once the server is moved! Thanks!

  23. That feeling when a customer likes you because of the keyboard you're using lmao.

     

    I had a call earlier and the customer was complimenting the sounds of the keyboard when making him a ticket and afterwards, we had a great conversation regarding keyboards lol. Some customers are awesome.

      I'm using the Corsair K70. He was like "That's an awesome keyboard". It was funny though because I was trying to solve the customer's issue and so on, but he kept asking me questions about the keyboard haha (I'm bad at multi-tasking).

  25. Hello, Our CS:GO servers are currently experiencing issues after the latest CS:GO update. All CS:GO servers appear to be offline at the moment and aren't booting up properly. We will most likely have to wait for a SourceMod update to fix our servers. I will post updates regarding this issue in this thread. I apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you for understanding.
