You might know this or not but all my Soldat and other game related stuff are now hosted on one server. This post is to inform you that we’re going a big step forward now. You might have noticed that all the Soldat142.zip mirror files are gone and I’m hosting it only from one location. This is a dedicated server machine hosted and built in Chicago personally by Mr. FliesLikeABrick. Everything is hosted in one location, I know it was a pain to maintain everything at couple locations (like lobby server, mirrors, BattlEye server, SVN reps, forums, site etc.), so a brick has been lifted off of FliesLikeABricks shoulders. Finally I can afford to own a machine like that thanks to all people that are registering, so this is because of you (and keep it coming cause I have to pay the rent;). I haven’t bought myself a new car from the registration money yet so you can see that I’m investing the money in my games. We are preparing for the future. We need a server like this to handle all future requirements not only for Soldat, link-dead but for everything that might come next. FliesLikeABrick assures me that the server will take the load, so I trust him and I’m preparing a new game that will beat everything else in popularity and really stress test the server.
You can read more specific details on the server and hosting adventures on FliesLikeABrick blog.
