  1. VG Website error: Your connection is not private

    Lol my bad - fixed.
  2. Considering building a new PC around my new RTX 2070 Super...

    Ive got the RTX2070 from MSI. They do have a known issue where they can fail in under a month. I dunno if it was a bad batch or what. My card failed in about 3 weeks. Amazon replaced it without issue, been solid ever since. i7700k with 500gb EVO SSD, MSI z270 gaming pro carbon and 64gb DDR4 overclocked to 3000mhz using intels XMP 2.0 profile. Works really well. Will need to add another SSD as im pretty much full on the 500gb. I wouldn't raid0 your OS. Either RAID1 or RAID10 (1 + 0). If one of your disks fail on a raid 0 the array is comprised and fails, so doubling your risk just for a bit of read/write. RAID1 will see you get a write penalty (as data has to be written to 2 disks) but you will get a read gain, as you can read the data from either disk. If you're gaming you'll be reading maps and textures from disk, so you'll see increase loading times, plus you'll gain hard disk redundancy. Just remember if you do software RAID on windows, I think it writes the bootloader to 1 of the drives, so if that fails the other drive wont have the bootloader and windows wont boot, but the data will be there. But if this is just an OS drive with apps installed then you probably dont care that much about data. You can install the bootloader to both disks without too much hassle. There are a number of guides. I did it to the german dedi after we lost a disk in raid1 that contained the bootloader and we ended up reinstalling because of it. I'm pretty sure that was on 2008R2, so I dunno what the case is now. Machines a beast, though!
  3. Project Reality Loading issue

    Maybe its your client taking ages to extract the textures? Are you using an SSD?
  4. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    It looks a bit more "arcade like" than PR, but I'd definitely be up for playing. If we nail the rules and run it our way we an probably prevent the shit show described above. Dont think it has a coop mode though.
  5. Recent changes to webserver

    Ah I see. Silly me - I have AV SSL inspection turned on, so it looks like it was issued by my AV software rather than the real issuer.

    Ha - you got me. How could you tell? The expiry date on the cert?
  7. Recent changes to webserver

    I'll keep it short and sweet. We now (finally) have SSL (TLS) on the website. Your usernames and passwords are secure in transit! We've also made it so general browsing on the site is all done through TLS. That being said, please be careful about what images you link to the site. If it does not have HTTPS it will cause web browsers to report the site as not fully secure as some content is provided via HTTP. If it continues to happen I'll probably have to stop 3rd party linked images being displayed on the site. We've also gone IPv6!

  8. SSD upgrade from mechanical drive

    The samsung EVO SSDs are epic.
  9. Website upgrade - READ ME

    Yeah - I think the old theme is a lost cause.. Theres some php error on it and I can't fix it. Unfortunately I've had to start fresh with the this theme. It does mean most of the customisation will need to be added back, like donations and chatbox.
  10. Website upgrade - READ ME

    I've upgraded our website to the latest stable version on our current branch. This mostly went according to plan. Unfortunately the theme we use doesn't seem to be fully compatible. Most of the site works on the old theme but the index page does not. I've switched the default theme to this basic one for now, until we can get the updated theme files and hopefully fix the issue. Bear with me. Regards Mark

  12. PR Server monitor

    Unfortunately we won't be able to run this on our server.

  14. Server conection time out (cannot connect)

    Wireshark on windows. Run a capture and attach to this thread. Make sure you try to connect to a game with the wireshark capture running in the background. Save as pcap file type.
  15. Server conection time out (cannot connect)

    The last hop, or even the BMS server, probably blocks all in by default. That means any traceroutes will get dropped. Unfortunately I don't have access to the BMS server. The details are probably somewhere but I wouldn't want to mess about with it. Latency wouldn't prevent you connecting. Might stop you playing though. Show me a packet capture (using wireshark or tcpdump) and ill take a look. The game server won't initiate a connection to you, you initiate a connection to it. You should see packets going off to the server and hopefully packets returning. I'd imagine the server uses UDP and TCP. Do you see any TCP SYNs going to the BMS server? Do you ever receive a SYN ACK?
