June 3, 2003, 1:07 am
It's the first story that folks will hit as they come through the front door, that sould be enough.

June 3, 2003, 1:48 am
Plus, they'll find out when the old lobby IP doesnt work >:)

Faster you say, TRSSam? Coolies :D

June 3, 2003, 1:50 am

June 3, 2003, 2:06 am

June 3, 2003, 2:26 am
I was wondering what the heck was going on. Thanks for the update, I'll spread the word.

June 3, 2003, 2:49 am

When in doubt, check the forum!

Guess we will have to wait a couple of hours till the servers update.

June 3, 2003, 10:04 am
hahahaha, yup, there are now 4 whole servers listed in the lobby! rah!

Looks like we'll have to use ASE for the moment...

Heaps of people don't go to the forums, so... yeah...

IS the game getting faster or is just the lobby faster refreshed?

June 3, 2003, 11:33 am
TRSSam: I gather a 'lobby's been moved' message (like the 'you've been banned' message) is not avalible to people using the old IP stil.

June 3, 2003, 11:46 am
dna plz don't forget to update your soldat server stats script!

June 3, 2003, 12:06 pm
mat: fixed, thanks.

June 3, 2003, 3:29 pm
hmm...i dont really its faster?

it seems that the lobby server IS FASTER

but the game servers are not

June 3, 2003, 6:25 pm
New version should come out faster cuz alot of ppl wont change to the new ip :/

June 3, 2003, 9:19 pm
ya, very tru! hehe

June 3, 2003, 11:31 pm
thx for the update lol ppl need to know 'bout this (specially the ones wiht the admins always out)cause there only a few servers in the lobby oh well

June 3, 2003, 11:57 pm
ninja, are you an idiot, he said that the lobby server is faster, did he say he improved the net code or got all the servers a T3 connection or something? nope, its the lobby server thats faster not the game servers

June 4, 2003, 1:28 am
i was trying to answer CbbLe question you retard

ROFL @ worm



So how can we get all of the servers to change??

Maybe Michal can release a 1.1.3b patch :) rofl

June 4, 2003, 3:04 am
Hmm... although i did put in the new IP address, my Soldat is still saying that the lobby server isnt up... is this happening to anyone else?

thanks for any input!

June 4, 2003, 3:32 am
rofl, sorry ninja, i didnt know that, man thats funny now that i know that, freakin hilarious

ya know what we need, we need a 1.1.05b version that includes all stuff from 1.1.x but also includes the nice pings included in 1.05b, what the hell, throw in the old m79 too

June 4, 2003, 3:37 am
it is stupid for releasing a 1.1.3b, because of a change in one file

they should have known when they see the message keep popping up, they should've been smart and come to the forum and check the news frequently

if they dont, then is too bad for them, they will just have to wait for one or two more weeks for 1.1.4 to come out

June 4, 2003, 10:41 am
He should release the 1.1.3b patch, and make it...hmm..5mb =P

June 6, 2003, 3:26 am
Hmm, i'm new to soldat, and i've been wanting to try out an internet game. I get a: lobby server is not responding error, when i try and list the servers. I tried changing the lobby_servers.txt file and replace the old IP with the new one, but i keep getting the error.

June 6, 2003, 6:20 pm
faster = higher bandwidth (I thought that obvious)

DNA:unfortunately I don't have longer access to old Lobby IP. If I had I would send message:"Please change Lobby IP" everytime someone is downloading list.

Binacadude: can you see Lobby Web Page [URL] ?

Some features in new lobby (will be avaible when 1.1.4 comes out):
- Set up a link to your clan/server site on main lobby page
- Set up a server behind a router - clients will connect to those servers, but only if clients are not behind router (So client or server CAN NOT BE behind router).

June 6, 2003, 8:59 pm
wow, this is cool, i really can't wait for 1.1.4 to comes out then, lots of new stuff!

June 7, 2003, 12:05 am
TRS, thanks for keeping up the lobby so we can all keep playing, and [:-censored].

I got it working now. On the soldat homepage, i just downloaded the new severs text file, and it worked.
