Hey, is the website or redirect server down by any chance? Trying to set up some custom maps but can't seem to connect to the redirect.

Thanks!

It is offline yes, you just have to follow one download link on the redirect server to test it in your browser.

pro tip: there is a link to a map from the redirect server just above your message ^^

My datacenter seems to be having some issues with their network. I've been getting emails from them the past couple days about network outages. Might have something to do with the East coast storm that his over the weekend since it's located in North Carolina, USA.

I sent them a support ticket about it being down. I can't even access the box. :rolleyes:

I take it your still down skillz? Entering my server will just momentarily freeze the game, but won't allow access to my server.

So, Server Extension Mutator was my problem, it works flawless without it but there is something causing Server Extension to not work anymore.

I'm getting a very bizarre "Netcomego" error in the batch file. Everything has been updated to V1022 and no go.

ServerExt needs a reupload Skillz. Is it possible to do so? Marco's mod was broken in V1027 but fixed it in v1028 and now I get a constant "ServerEXT version mismatch" error.

Hey. Wouldn't it be easier for server hosts to install Apache and link public html folder to Maps?

I have done so and now whenever I add new KF2 maps I don't have to worry if some redirect server has the same map (with the same name no less)...

Another solution is to use a free and unlimited web hosting, like the one I found on https://infinityfree.net/ I'm still waiting for my account creation but if it works as intended it is pretty straight forward:

create the free account
wait for activation
upload your custom maps all in the same folder on the hosting/ftp/file manager (the method you prefer, for me it is FTP)
use your account URL (you see it in their control panel for example I created mine as "kf2redirect.epizy.com") in your KFEngine.ini for the line RedirectToUrl= example for me: RedirectToURL=http://kf2redirect.epizy.com/

Search for other free unlimited web hosting on google if this one does not create your account in a reasonable time, there are plenty of them on the internet. Maybe create also a fake web page with links to some of the files to let them think you have a legit website and you don't just suck their bandwidth for free, this is optional but can avoid having an account suspended in some cases xD

edit: they still did not finish my account setup, still in the 'PROCESSING..." step so I can't verify this host is good, but whatever, it would still be the same at another web hosting company, you want it free, with unlimited storage/disk space (and optionally unlimited bandwidth too if you plan on having 64 slots servers running only custom maps), simply upload the files in a folder or at the root of your hosting, and use the URL of your hosting pointing to where your files are, in your engine.ini file.

You can also have cheap paid solutions but it is basically the same as the free ones :D
