Hello all, you may or may not have seen it on the main page, but, we've set up a PayPal account that you guys can donate to. The primary usage of the funding gathered in this manner is to set up an official BG2 server, both for SVN testing and regular play. We haven't decided on a server company yet, as we still need one that we know can be switched back and forth between the main game and the SVN.

Anyone wishing to donate can send money to Fopezeh@Gmail.com.

We're still trying to settle on a company. As it's the weekend, e-mails have thus far gone unresponded to.

www.rackage.com - Quick and fantastic quality, Respond time average.

I have a long list really, but those two are by far the best.

TRR uses gameservers.com, but they are very hard to use if you are changing all the time.

I suggest:


www.escapedturkey.com


They give you a 64 slot server for a very cheap monthly price. You can install any mods you want, and can change it whenever you want.

The problem is that they do not do anything themselves, the only thing they will do is transfer files from the internet to the server which is faster then uploading.

You get a lot of self controll. You can change mods instantly between CSS and BG2 for instance by changing the command line.

Death helped me setup ours, but we stopped using them because I could not keep up paying for it.

Sadly, we could help support the servers with ads on our website and/or forum. That is if needed.

If that's the case, would a 40 person server be enough for the BG2 official server? I'm trying to make sure we're not spending more than $40 a month on a server, and I believe Art of War looked pretty solid for that.

Are you on commission or something? I've had 2 UKGame's and they've always ran fine.

So does our gameserver server. It has no problem and we get support 24/7! I even got a nice yearly payment deal with them since I have used them for the last 3-4 years and they love loyal customers.

The only problem is that they will not allow you to change the command line like you can in escapedturkey.

They are not good for SVN servers or high slots servers, with good performance.

I dont know what service you rechieved Welly, but the one I got was not worth recommending!

When I bought the server, no one could join it because of some game bugs, and they didn´t knew what to do, so they said "We dont know how to solve it" Then no further replies. I asked them "Then what?" - "We dont know"....

So my advise is Art of War Central.

I've sent out two separate e-mails to Art of War, and talked with their 24/7 support staff. I've been trying to see if they would cut a deal for us since it would be an official BG2 server (with possible advertising rights for them), but their owner has yet to respond (it's now been... 2, 3 business days back in the States?). Thinking to just say bugger them and look somewhere else.

And here I would think a company would love to host a mod's official server. Oh well, such is life. Still looking for other possibilities.

If you are willing to go Chicago I would be happy to give you a server on our dedicated to run as you see fit. PM me and I can set one up. It would be free of fees as I have played this mod for a number of years, I have never been able to give anything back and would be happy to do so. You can have whatever access you need from ftp and user access; just give me the requirements.

Your generosity is certainly appreciated, and I have no doubt we'll take advantage of it. Have you ever hosted any of the BG2 servers before? And what sort of system do you have running over there?

Shoot me a PM if you'd like, it'd be appreciated.

Yes, have in the past. It has been some time and we ran them under LINE as a clan before. Dual Quad with 8 GB memory and raid. Going back to the older games given the crap offerings these days for new games. Have gone back to Project Reality for BF2 and the older AA. Nothing interests me in todays gaming. We pay for the server but don't have much running on it atm. Tell me what you need and pm me what you want for a temp login and setup. I will set you up an account to test and see if you want it to use.

Well, I'm sitting in Afghanistan, and I'm about to pick up some mail, but I'll be on Skype in an hour or so. We can talk a bit there, and find out what we want to work out. (Assuming you'll be awake in an hour)
