Server Update[/b]: Sadly, the server's down with hardware issues. Someday, she will rise, again!

New IP Address: 76.17.156.93 (for both the OFP and TS2 servers)

Coop Nights

Date: Whenever we work something up, nowadays!

Time: If we do get something going, it'll be around 10:00 p.m. CST (-6 CET)

See below for additional info.

N.B. addons updated, see below for info.

Hi, folks,

I managed to get WGL running on my server and I'm opening it up to everyone.

I'm new to this sort of thing. Questions and constructive advice about running a server would be appreciated.

Right now, it runs WGL, but I might rotate in other mods/missions if I can figure out how to get them going.

It won't likely be up 24/7. If it's down and you'd like to play, send a PM my way. I'll see what I can do.

The name is a reference to an old paintball club.

Here's the server info:

Server name (as shown in GameSpy): TacOps WGL

Mission count: 1681

TeamSpeak 2 Server: 76.17.156.93

No passwords, for now.

Required mod folders/addons:

@wgl5 (fully patched WGL 5.12, hat tip to Overlord)

@wgltacopspart1 updated on 4/28/2011: now includes snYpir's SP/MP support pack addon

@wgltacopspart2

Complete @wgltacops archive - includes both @wgltacopspart1 and @wgltacopspart2 (as of 04/28/2011) Thank you, Pulverizer!

N.B. Those of you who are using '@ciawgl' and '@wglextras' see the update below.

On that same download page, you will find the WGL Ryan and AT unit and weapons replacement mod-folder archives, respectively. 5.1_rep.rar is required for the AT installation, see the WGL51reprarinstallation.txt for instructions (see Walter's post, below).

Instructions for getting the Ryan models working: WGL Models Base Instructions

Additionally, Mr. Burns' AEC Islands replacement pack is there for download, as well.

Make backups of your original files!

If there is a mission you'd like included in the server (or, if there's one on there that needs to be fixed), let me know!

Have fun!

N.B. Inspired by the [CiA] and the University of Dallas Tactical Operations Club.

Coop Nights

Date: Saturday nights

Time: 10:00 p.m. CST (-6 CET)

TS2 comms will be required. You won't need a mic - just need to be able to hear.

Style of play: see the CiA Rules

4/26/2011 Addons update: @wgltacopspart1 is not equivalent to the old @wglextras (see below); @wgltacopspart2 contains the new addons, documentation, and island anim folders.

- Consolidate the addons in a mod folder named '@wgltacops'. Remove @wglextras (do not rename it to @wgltacops - the earlier suggestion to do so was incorrect; it is ok to do so with a few addons replaced, see update, below).

Thank you, Zulu1 and Marto!

4/27/2011 Addons update: I removed

mfcti1.15.pbo

zscti1.1.pbo

zscti1.2.pbo

zscti1.3.pbo

due to a note on the Zeus site - they were obsolete. If you already have them, go ahead and delete them. They have been removed from the server.

4/29/2011 @ciawgl and @wglextras updated addons cf. Post #50

Copy the addons in the following archive to update @ciawgl and/or @wglextras for compatibility w/ the TacOps WGL server:

wglextrasciawglupdate.zip

This update will render the addons in @ciawgl and @wglextras equivalent to those in @wgltacopspart1.

- added complete @wgltacops archive

Anguis,

Good job! There were a couple of wgl fans lurking around here, maybe this will draw them out again.

Thanks, Walter, I had forgotten about that error. I've uploaded the corrected text. However, I think your quote does the job better!

Yeah, I'd go with OFPMonitor. I, frankly, am not sure what the ip is, due to a confusing conversation with Comcast a week or two ago. I am, unfortunately, able to see my server on neither ofpwatch (when I put in what I think is the ip) nor ofpmonitor. If you find my server on ofpmonitor, feel free to post the ip it reports. I'm curious to see what it is.

Here's what whatismyip.com shows: 76.17.155.75

The port should be 2302.

And, if you're up for a game, send me a PM. I might be able to play (and grab someone else, too).

I've been asked about a regular/semi-regular co-op session. Thoughts? (I'm now working on a TS server)

Edit: Zulu, how do you use ofpmonitor to launch off-line sessions? I haven't been able to figure that out - pretty much keeps me from using it. The vast majority of my mod-combos entails local launches. I can't get on my server with it, b/c I can't see it, but, if it'd open a local session, it'd work for me. Actually, another thing I'd need it to do is launch via an alternate executable (fwatch, specifically).

Yeah, that's a really weird thing to see! The server says WGL and I have messages cycling that give the addons links. Maybe they'll come around. . . !

Hi, folks,

I got a TS2 server up and running - see first post for info. There's no PW, for now. Let me know how it works for you, good or bad.

Thanks!

Good job Anguis - nice server. I checked in a few times lately and works very nice. I been too busy with work for OFP lately but I'll check in when I can.

Seen Viking and Zulu arouns several times too.

I'd be interested in a COOP time if we can somehow work it around US/AUS timings... Weekends best. Perhaps either Sat or Fri evenings US so its Sat or Sun mornings here?

As Zulu said I think we need to make some smaller wgl missions with easy objectives.... might get inspired to make a few small missions...

---------- Post added at 12:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:06 PM ----------

PS we should drag Zwobot in for a game sometime...

Sounds great, guys!

As for a co-op night, it's looking like Saturday night @ 9 p.m. U.S. Central time will be good for me. Friday night, later, is probably fine, too. Would those times work for anyone else?

Alright, I've settled on a date and time for a co-op night:

Date: Friday, April 8, 2011

Time: 10:00 p.m. CST (-6 CET, I think)

Server will be passworded - check back here for it (I'll update the first post, as well).

TS2 comms will be required. You won't need a mic - just need to be able to hear.

Style of play: cf. the CiA Rules

Join in, if you can! Watch my server die!

The first TacOps WGL coop night was fun. Some good teamwork. We even completed two missions! WGL AI never fails to surprise us... Well done with the server Anguis.

Anyone interested in joining, I'm sure Anguis will post a regular coop time soon (and I will update this post too with details).

First some failures:

Rye Times on Avignon (@wg_co_09_rye_times.avignon.pbo):

Viking getting overrun, trodden on, and bayonetted by enemy:

POL on Saint David (@wg_co_10_pol.saintdavid.pbo):

Viking, doing what he does best, ie stopping enemy bullets and bleeding...

We had another crack at Battle! (@wg_co_12_battle.trinity.pbo):

You can see that Kwala on the left we fought from after a hot insertion:

Hi, folks,

Just a little update: I'm working on updating the @wglextras addons folder with additional addons, primarily islands, but with a few extras that should deepen the gameplay options available to those interested in making missions (thanks to Zulu, Marto, Drongo, and Chops for their help on this); it has been brought to my attention that a number of islands could/should be added, thus increasing the amount of already-made missions available for play. As part of the update, I will rename @wglextras to @wgltacops, in order to avoid confusion with another wgl addon folder out there named @wgl5extra - I will post an addons list, when this eventually happens.

Further off, I hope to add an additional mod to the mix (remote possibility for a third). It will, hopefully, involve ECP, if I can get it all to work. Some form of mod rotation might eventuate.

Regarding Coop Nights (or general gaming nights - there are several PvP missions available), while I am not always available to host them in any given week, I am open to allowing others to do so. If you're interested, PM me. By the way, the Friday night CST seemed to work nicely for the four continents involved.

On a side note, I've been keeping the server up and running as close to 24/7 as possible. If it's down, here are the major reasons - maintenance, my kids playing video games on the other partition, power outage.

As always, any helpful input is appreciated!

Have fun! Thanks for playing!

Hi, folks!

We're doing it again:

Coop Night

Date: Friday April 15, 2011

Time: 10:00 p.m. CST (-6 CET)

Server password: ofp

Same policies as last time, see first post.

We have a PvP mission done up by Zwobot last year, sort of a LRRP meets AAS, that I'd like to try out (could use a little testing). If you want to check it out, it's on St. David, prefaced with "zztest. . ."

Well, thanks to Zulu, [CiA]Overlord, and Bielow, the TacOps server now has 1681 missions, up from about 500 this morning! What a difference a day can make. :D

Anyways, not all are accessible, yet (islands to add. . .), and some might not work (anyone know why Ubuntu would recognize .pbo's as either 'program,' 'HTML,' or 'unknown?'), but they're there for all to try. Some of you vets of the old WGL groups will recognize a bunch of them.

Feedback welcome. Thank you.

Glad to hear this that I helped in some point ;)

1681 is impresive number indeed :)
