Hello,

As you already know, Ravensoft's priority is not SoF, so when the masterserver goes down, it might take ages to put it back up (and eventually, a day will come when they won't put it up at all). So, BoeMan, leader of 1fx team and the main developer of 1fx. Mod made a permanent solution. It works like my solution, only difference is that mine was only up when masterserver was down, Boe's masterserver is up 24/7 from now on.

So, as stated, it works like mine, which means, it needs some configurations.
1. Server-side configurations.
Because this might happen in the near future, we need a backup, so serverowners, please, route your servers to boe's masterserver like so:

Windows solution:
Code:
set sv_master2 "master.1fxmod.org"


Linux solution (Only v1.00, Silver):

Code:
set sv_master2 "178.62.14.201"


Under Linux solution, I mean servers, which are run with ./sof2ded, not with wine/wineconsole/other windows emulator in linux.

2. Player-side configurations
For players, it's rather easy, just like my solution, just get the .exe files, which have the pre-set masterserver.

NOTE: This will not work with FairPlay. And because FairPlay is outdated, it most likely will not work in the future as well.

Test: http://1fxmod.org/master/v1.02t/SoF2MP.1fxmaster.exe  <--The caserun version
Silver: http://1fxmod.org/master/v1.00/SoF2MP.1fxmaster.exe
Gold: http://1fxmod.org/master/v1.03/SoF2MP.1fxmaster.exe


The executables are like the original executables, only thing which is changed, is the server it queries for servers.

If you have any questions, please, contact me or Boe (boe@1fxmod.org)
Also, for more information, please, check this thread in 1fx. Forums.

http://1fx.uk.to/forums/index.php?/topic/2033-master-server-preparing-for-the-future/
 
To conclude, it's better to act up than wait until something happens. Use the normal SoF2MP.exe file when the masterserver is up, and when it goes down, use the 1fxmaster exe. Also, please, spread the word (post this to Demobase and such, I can't), that way, we can keep this game up a bit longer.

Best regards,
Janno
