  1. Took a vote with regulars and now Day 1 (was very quiet at day 16)
  2. All what Semler said. Something as simple as a connected usb device can stop normal boot with (in my own experience) no visual errors.
  3. Seoul captured. Re started
  4. Day 1 re start.
  5. The bms information page needs some update on this setting but already the server is set to 1500 minimum. Whilst this is the minimum it is also requested that it is THE setting used. Players who still have the 2048 set should have no problem connecting but perceived wisdom is that all players should have same BW setting regardless if their upload ability could support higher. This lower number should allow more people to meet minimum. If you know players that may not see this please pass this change to them.
  6. Welcome and so what games/sims currently interest you ? I think the subject of Discord has been brought up before. Maybe it could dilute the `normal` meeting place of the VG TS channels. I use discord and it has its place but if using a VG game server TS has to be king perhaps. Not my say
  7. Up and running now.
  8. All being well I should get to incorporate Update 5 (multi play crash fixes) later this evening and restart to Day 1 by 0600 zulu 17-3-18 latest. Thanks to SemlerPDX for allowing this in his absence. He might have to fix it if i break something.
  9. Under discussion for a possible earlier date. Its not critical though except where players are using more than the VG server.
  10. Today's release of BMS 4.33 U5 is focused on multi play crash fixes . A 33MB download currently available by the usual torrent method. https://www.benchmarksims.org/forum/showthread.php?33218-Falcon-BMS-4-33-U5-Incremental-Installer Watch out for news of the VG server update to U5 in near future.
  11. More human players of late results in a quicker attrition of red forces. Not an official victory but requires a day 1 restart to give players a reason to join.
  12. In what way "down" ? Not aware of any fixes being done since the report. Not by me anyway. If by some chance you had a `timed out` error then thats something that may well pass very quickly. More a connection problem than server itself. I have had a few of those this year. Not many but more than 2017 total !! If something else please advise.
  13. And again
  14. Day 1 restart. There had been a server problem during Friday night and some newcomers may have been effected which is a shame. Spins and Moody from USA.
  15. Short of any technical advances that might be on the horizon i reckon a PW system could work. All approved players are on a mass email list that get a weekly changed pw. People can swiftly be removed from list. Initially people will HAVE to visit the VG site to register as a server user. On the other hand ive done more missions on the server than the average and the irritations that started this topic are very infrequent in my experience and a big factor is the sim throwing the unfamiliar and unwary into a jet the moment they arrive in 2D.
