I'm looking for people who can provide mirrors for Soldat. From all over the world as possible.

So if you are interested in helping the Soldat community, please e-mail me (michalm@poczta.fm) with the subject line "Mirror". Please add your contact information, the site where you will be hosting the file and the country where it will be placed.

Don't do this if you have some cap on your traffic, or if you get charged for excessive traffic.
Soldat is 9MB and always has thousands of downloads.

Believe me, Michal knows what he's talking about.
I once hosted Soldat (I think it was 1.1.0) and after about 1-2 days my traffic limit of 1GB was exceeded by about 500MB.

So.. Soldat is very popular :)

Btw, my account was suspended for one month hehe..

thx for warning me cuz i was about to send my mail to michal...

June 9, 2003, 7:15 pm
No no! Please host! But first check how much traffic you're allowed to use.

My problem was I was on top of the list so more people downloaded from my mirror :)

Maybe wait 2 days so you're at the end of the list ^^

June 9, 2003, 7:16 pm
All you have to do is changing the filename of the files pretty often...Then they won't see if you exceed the limit or not (A admin on my serverhost told me that)

June 9, 2003, 7:43 pm
CbbLe I think you're wrong. This MIGHT work on SOME servers, but most of them log the traffic "overall" not just on specific file names..

And changing the filename 2 times a day and telling Michal the new link would not be that much fun..

Maybe he finds a big hoster like some download archives!

Hmm.. i'd like to help, my site doesn't have a restriction, but its Planetcnc. I dont know if they'd appreciate me doing something non command and conquer....

June 10, 2003, 1:55 am
Michal: i just send you a email about it, please reply soon

June 10, 2003, 6:26 am

June 10, 2003, 8:01 am
I really want to help but my site has only 1.00 mb free. [:(]
I goota make a new account.

June 10, 2003, 11:58 am
Cus its geocities.... they suck

what about using the edonkey/emule network?
the more ppl having the file, the more sources for download, no traffic limit, worldwide spread...

I'm sharing the 1.1.3 version (I just added it to my shared folder).


Just use that inside a normal link, and it'll be opened by anybody having edonkey/emule installed. it's the most used p2p network, and everybody downloading the file, even if they doesn't have it complete, becomes a source for other users.

I think that using p2p combined with "normal" mirrors would be a great idea. With some text like "Please, if you're using the p2p network emule/edonkey use the elink provided instead of the common mirrors".

That would limit the charge to standard mirrors greatly :)

BTW, a search for "soldat", with a filesize between 7 and 12mb (to avoid other things appearing) produced several results on the emule network, from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 and others without any info about what version they are.

If ppl downloading it from a standard mirror adds it to the shared folder of the p2p network, you can get more sources really fast. Once there're enough sources on the p2p network sharing the file, more and more ppl will choose to download from the p2p rather than from the mirrors...

or michal could post it on http://www.fileplanet.com or http://www.filefront.com

June 11, 2003, 2:25 am
Soldat 1.1.3 is already located on FilePlanet


June 11, 2003, 3:07 am
I have 400gb monthly transfer, email sent. hehe

June 11, 2003, 3:29 am
yeh i think that would probably do it robob

June 11, 2003, 3:33 am
ya...so the new version could be on fileplanet too and on filefront too...so two more mirrorz done :)

June 11, 2003, 5:50 am
I know one of the head guys at fileplanet, i should be able to make sure it gets up fast, if hes around

June 11, 2003, 11:19 am
i think @helpman is right . soldat should be 'distributed' :) in p2p systems too, and information about this 'form' of download (with link to file - for edonkey p2p) should be placed on soldat homepage .

... i checked now in my emule and i found that soldat is popular file with many sources :)

June 11, 2003, 2:59 pm
but p2p is full of trojans and other stuff.

June 11, 2003, 3:32 pm
yup, so tru. i say we stayed at the normal links...

June 11, 2003, 3:34 pm
if you download something without checking what the *** are you downloading, it's your fault, not p2p's fault :)

if you can see here an elink to the right file, that's the file you'll download, no trojans, no viruses. if somebody changes the file, it has a different hash and you won't download the changed file clicking on a good link. if you just use the search option inside emule and tempt your luck... that's another thing...

let's see an example:

you can see 2 files on the results (you DIDN'T check if there's an elink here, you DIDN'T check file comments, you just searched using the search engine inside of the emule client)
file 1 has the name "soldat 1.1.3.zip", 8,80 mb, 45 sources
file 2 has the name "soldat 1.1.5 full 3d and cracked", no matter the size, let's say 10 sources.

If you downloaded file 1, you probably have what you looked for.
If you downloaded file 2, you probably have a fake/trojan/virus and a strong feeling of stupidity...

And if you mean p2p clients have trojans/viruses/spam, etc, emule doesn't have any :p

So, before downloading anything too good to be real, think a bit and always check that's exactly what you're trying to download :)

June 11, 2003, 7:03 pm
When the new Patch and updated soldat come out, Ill be willing to host on my space

June 11, 2003, 9:03 pm
EvilLaugh: i think you have to send michal an email about it

June 11, 2003, 9:59 pm
:O, well, im not gonna bother then, too much hassle

June 13, 2003, 10:46 am
For emule/edonkey users: this is an elink to the 1.1.4 version. There're not many sources now, but in a couple days there'll be many many more :)


(this in case you want to add it into a normal html link)<a <a href="ed2k://|file|soldat114.zip|9667091|bf7f8568a9f697c900cd178dda1dfb3f|/">soldat114.zip</a><a href="ed2k://|file|soldat114.zip|9667091|bf7f8568a9f697c900cd178dda1dfb3f|/">soldat114.zip</a>

June 13, 2003, 11:10 am
yes helpman I know how to use emule but I know if michal backed p2p this forum would get alot of 'soldat has a virus' post.

June 13, 2003, 4:51 pm

The more the merrier :)
