ACERCA DE Freaks & Misfits (Players)

[F+M] Freaks & Misfits (Players)

Players that join this group, will automatically receive a greater-than-public level of access to some of the custom in-game features of our game-servers (such as access to custom player skins/models) - upon reconnecting to the server after joining the group.

For your consumption:
  • Our Patron-Saint is "Hermey" the Elf, from the "Island of Misfit Toys"
  • Much like our members, this group is a "work-in-progress".
  • Membership to this group is open to the public, and is intended for those players who are looking for information about our game-servers, and to connect with our community. Of course, "normies" are welcome as well.
  • We do not use the "Discussions" or "Comments" area here in this group for chatting and answering questions. Instead we will use our text-chat channel(s):
    Discord[discord.gg]
  • We will only use the "Discussions" area to publish read-only information about how to use various custom features of our game-servers, etc.

Shhh... Don't tell anybody, but ... this group is actually part of a secret DPRK plot to infiltrate and take-over the on-line gaming world!

Server Update (2020-10-13)
What happened:
* The rental virtual computer that basically hosts everything (web-based stuff as well as the game-servers, etc.) crashed back on October 11th after a reboot for some operating system updates (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS patches, etc.).
* Not sure what really happened with that, but name-resolution, SSH-server and a bunch of other things effectively were broken.

What has been done:
* Rebuilt the server effectively from scratch with a different operating system.
* It now runs on Debian 10 instead of Ubuntu 18.
* Upgrading from Ubuntu 18 to Ubuntu 20 was considered.
* However, Ubuntu 20 drops support for 32-bit libraries and applications.
* Unfortunately, various Valve components such as SteamCMD, HLDS and SRCDS are all either 32-bit or depend on 32-bit components.
* Since Debian still supports 32-bit stuff, we moved from Ubuntu to Debain - the latest version of which is Debian 10.
* Fortunately, there were good backups and notes to use in rebuilding the server from scratch.
* The behind-the-scenes web-based stuff that makes the in-game downloads faster was restored from backups.
* Various game-server files were restored from backups.

Where we are now:
* Several of the game-servers are now back on-line.
* We have cut-back on the number of games we are hosting servers for.
* Basically, we just host games for Half-Life (HL1), and Team Fortress 2 (TF2).
* We will focus on HL1 and TF2 for now, possibly adding some additional variations of those.
* We may add other games back into the mix again in the future.
