I'm thinking to shut down the server because the none interest accept from some some lost soul once in a week or 2!
I want to shut it down and make it a spair server in case a server is down.
What you guys think ?
If I want to support another game I need atleast a upgrade this is a old lay around system I had that just could handle ofp !

How about hosting a different game altogether, a flight sym say? for clowns just for something different. There are plenty of older sym's that were pretty good & should work on your old rig
Lock On or F16, Stormavic. just a thought. Or car racing, or Farming sym for H.Laughing

Discuss;

I really don't think we need to have a back-up. If one of the servers goes down, it is typically brief. I do feel bad about the idea of OFP going away (it is after all, what the clan was built around). It's ultimately up to you, Bee, since you host the OFP server.

I just sent this message trough E-mail to everyone !

Quote:

After Years of enjoying the good times of Opertion Flashpoint It might be time to look forward .
There is no reason too let a server running 24/7 for just one player a once a week.
If someone wants to play mp he might be just 4 peepsmaximum and these days most of us can host that from home.
Also the rig I got is a old one and needs to be replaced something I have no time for at the moment.
I'll leave the addons on the forum so peeps can download them incase they want to host of run them to join.
The server will be shut donw at Friday june the 6th at 12 Zulu

I hope I have infomed you all enough about the server !
If I have any questions about the matter you can PM me on the forum !

Sincerely,
KillerBee !


I hope like I said in the mail I have informed you enough !

It's way better to get ArmA:CWA (OFP 1.99) directly from Steam as it is patched to the latest version. These hotfixes messes the game.
No real serious difference between 1.96 and 1.99. It was renamed, fixed double-cursors problem and that's it.

Yah but there are also the 3 hotfix patches for the 1.99
The link I gave was the one with the latest hotfix !
I run it myself and I can get on my server !
You need to use the link I had given you LTS !
