  • EuroQuake Down...

    Hello folks,

    Unfortunately I'll have to report that the EuroQuake server (bigfoot.quake1.net) is down, and will be down for the time being..

    The owner of the box has decided to kill it...

    Here is the official statement:
    I've decided to remove the quake servers on this box.
    The servers crash periodically to segfault and open unnecessary security vulnerabilities to the box (not to mention quake servers being used for DDoS amplification attacks).
    This has been a free service for a friend of a friend, but I'm afraid it's over now.

    - Your kind BOFH
    All I can say is:

    Thank you for hosting all these years, a big shout-out to bigfoot and whoever continued to run the box after biggy!
    (A truly Blessed Operator from Heaven, I'd say )

    Hope to frag you guys soon! (on another server)

    k.r. =peg=




    Update:
    The server is back up again and all is back to the way it was, including the maps download page:
    Code:
    http://bigfoot.quake1.net/maps/
    Kudos to polarite and cortex for making this happen!

    For the time being, the custom maps can still be downloaded from:
    Code:
    http://bigfoot.quake1.net/maps/
    However, expect this link to break sooner or later!

    Reconfigure your auto-downloading-quake-client (DirectQ defaults to the URL above)
    I would advice to change the auto-download-configuration (cl_web_download_url) to some other URL for example:
    Code:
    http://bigfoot.morphos-team.net/misc/quakemaps/
    http://quakeone.com/qrack/maps/
    http://www.pentstools.com/maps/


    I will be looking at a replacement host, in order to get the EuroQuake server back up and running ASAP, but no promises on a date..

    Hi Peggy,

    Although I moved away from the server a little over recent years, please express my thanks to Biggy and co for hosting for so long and providing such a good service.

    Additionally I think a big thank you is in order for the work you, Pol, Corty and H put in to try and make it a fun place to be.

    I wonder if QRF or flanders are viable alternatives in the mean time Failing that, I'm sure Pol would agree that [almost] all of the european players would be more than welcome at New York.

    Kind regards

      Always proud of my ever profound, deep and meaningful contributions
      Thanks for the heads up, Peg. (heads up Peg?) Anyway, what Mr B said.
      Gratitude and warm wiggly bits to all the hard work over the years, esp Pol.

      QRF is still a viable option, been there tonight, but always nice to have something closer to home, in a selfish ping way
      Thanks to Mr B for the NY offers. Getting most to migrate will probably conjure ping whining, me included probably.

          Sorry to hear that ,we can't say thanks enough to bigfoot for hosting the server.

          But euroquake dead , NO !! Over my dead body ;-)

          We will start on a new host with the same dns and run FFA10 fun tournament on it !!!

          Nothing to panic about!

                Hold tight sir, I'm sure something will turn up shortly, and as mentioned above Flanders and QRF are european servers and are still active. If that doesn't work for you then you can give me your usual bunny hopping. Rocket Jumping, quick firing, ass whooping on New York

                Kind regards

                  Not so many days ago in a country far, far away a happy giraffe named Marius had to die.
                  Last nite we lost Bigfoot...

                  Mostly what H, wrote, just less arse in it - and then maybe not.
                  Im pretty sure Peg and Pol will fix that in a jiffy

                  Let me suggest the new servername to be: Bigfooted Marius.
                  Also lets meet on QRF server, so dam nice smooth well pinged server.

                  Oh, and Hej

                        Hi Pol,

                        Just played a couple of maps and it seemed fine to me. I had a steady 48 ping from the UK and didn't notice any perceivable lag.

                        Just my humble suggestion but I suspect Stalker and Dude might be good candidates to test it as they often seem to be much more sensitive to PL or lag in general whereas mine is..well... lets just say it's consistently less than good

                        Contact me in the usual way if I can help further

                        Kind regards

                            When you say "test" Polarite what do you mean hehe.

                            I ping like bigfoot from here in the Great North of America... around 150.

                            Thanks for making sure bigfoot stays alive... one of the most important European server to me... and always busy!!
