ERP has published maps, Skin packs, and a forum on EFMods.com, but we still have one problem that's been there since the beginning. A server. Scooter's server is great, it's fast and private, but he can't put it up all the time, which is understandable. Is it possible to run an EFServer from a website, or something? A dedicated 24 hour server would be great, but just something that we could access most of the time (Especially on Saturday). If anyone has any ideas at all, please post them here.

Unfortunately you can't just run an EF server from a web server. You actually have to buy an EF server.

My recommendation is to use one of those servers you guys were using before. You'll probably only use it for a few hours on Saturday, so that should do you for a few weeks until I get off school. Then I can build us a 24/7 server (unless the power goes out).

If you really want a server for a couple hours or something you gotta know somebody in a clan that would do that for a while. If WDT still had EF servers i just possibly could have got it for an hour or two.

If SS13 had servers we could use them, but alas, we dont have any.

Speaking of clans, anyone want to join ss13? Wink Grin Huh?

maybe after christmas when I have some money, I don't know how much they cost though. We'll have to see, I also might be getting a new PC, so there's always the chance I might be able to use my current one to host servers.

I think a Server Tower might work, not sure if you could put an EF server on it, but I think it could be online 24 hours a day

ROFLMAO!

You volunteering to pay for that Carlos? (rhetorical question)

You can put EF on any computer that you have physical access to, and any computer can be on 24 hours a day if you don't turn it off. Na na! LOL!

you could ask my clan SFEF if they would host a server for us cos we only have four and our policy is about fun and everybody enjoying themselves which is on the same principles as this group. if logalot went to e-mail them, i think they would be happy to help.

Interesting idea, we'll have to talk about it. Sorry I've been away, I was on a trip and forgot to tell everybody. Wedsday night at 5:00 ET let's talk about servers in the chat okay?

Update on the situation of my server:

This Saturday I'll be at school working on stuff, so I can put my server up while I'm gone. By the time I get home and need to use it again it will be fairly late in the day and you'll be all RPed out.

As for next Saturday, there's a small possibility that I can have my server up while I'm using my computer because I'll be studying for exams, but we'll see. Smile

i will put a server up on free for all and keep it on from 12:00noon-8.00pm at weekend and from 6:00pm-8.00pm during the week. (british time)
however my internet is a bit dodgy so it disconnects sometimes on its own but i will just put it back on.
