Re: How to Connect to Server When DNS is Down

I tried to get Bing's AI to draw a happy new year shambler. This is what I got.

Re: Purge (key)

If it was 96, then they may have been running custom maps but not the official FvF maps from Fvf4. FvF4 didn't happen until... later than 96. In 96 FvF was still running like versions 1 or something. Definitely not later than 2.09, because after that, the download was mandatory. Maybe the year was l...

Re: How to Connect to Server When DNS is Down

I suppose we can try it at .05 for a while. One thing I immediately notice is off, though, is the Laser Android projectiles... particularly the Mass Cannon. Oh yeah! That's one of the main things I don't like. With 0.05 ticrate, all projectiles will appear at half the usual distance of when they ap...

Re: How to Connect to Server When DNS is Down

I believe FvF will work at 0.05 ticrate -- at least I think I put some code in to adjust the gravity if it's set to 0.05 (after restarting a level). But I don't think things feel right at that ticrate.... I don't remember all the reasons I don't like it. Elevators feel weird or something. I may have...

Re: How to Connect to Server When DNS is Down

I'm currently in Kansas visiting my brother, so I'm not well-connected. I just happened to check here.... The alternate DNS (fvf.fvfonline.com) is probably never going to be correct now. I think FOQ's IP address is going to change from time to time, but I gave him the password for the dynamic DNS th...

Re: Full version link is broken?

It was deleted again :roll:

I contacted support once more to see if they can get their malware scanner to stop being dumb.

Seriously, there's not even anything in the file that could look remotely like malware. There's no executable, just mod files for Quake.

Re: Full version link is broken?

Well, they started off saying, "Upon checking we could not find the fvf42R.zip file on the domain fvfonline.com. There is a probability that you may have deleted it accidentally." Uh, yeah, I know you can't find it. I just opened the ticket to report that the file was repeatedly being dele...

Re: Full version link is broken?

There's something weird going on with the web server. That file keeps vanishing every time I re-upload it, after about a day. I've filed a support ticket with the web host.... Meanwhile, the Internet Archive does still have the file: https://web.archive.org/web/20220119041416/http://fvfonline.com/fv...

Re: Is there a way to play the full version with the Id monsters?

I'm not sure. It's been a long time since I messed with it.

You could try going to the standard Quake start map by typing "map start" in the console.
Or maybe "map e1m1" after you start a game.

I don't remember if the standard monsters were fully replaced or not though.

Re: How to Connect to Server When DNS is Down

DNS appears to be down again :( Should be ok now. It's this free service that I have to confirm every month (no-ip.com). Sometimes I forget to do it on time. If I ever keel over and don't update it for a month, then after another month I think anyone could claim "fvf.servequake.com" and p...

Severed - Quake mod

Way back in the olden days (the late 90s), there was a Quake mod called "The Severed Player Patch" which allowed you to use your axe to chop off the limbs of the other players. You could chop off their arms and legs, and they would be hopping around bleeding everywhere.... It was pretty co...
