Im french Valkyrie I will talk with you if I go in the same game than you haha =)
I meant the ones who just blatantly ignore you shouting at them...~
Im sociable me haha =)
Just got an HGS server and everything regarding the server running is fine. The problem is with their FTP. About 70% of all transfers fail. The connections are extremely slow. I put in a support ticket and i'll see what happens.
Any update on this? I was considering getting a server (not neccessarily them) and weighing my options.
Well i forgot what they suggested, but i dont even think it had anything to do with the matter...what i figured out really happens is the transfer is successful 100% of the time, but it either times out, or my filezilla client re-transfers the file. Not sure if this is a filezilla issue or their FTP's issue. So let's say im transferring a map over, it will show the file 100% uploaded, but it wont actually "finish". So i just resulted to refreshing the FTP, make sure my file has been uploaded, and then cancel the transfer. Seems to work. So after figuring that out, things are a lot easier. The server's perform pretty well, and ping is pretty good. So if they ever seem to get the FTP issues sorted out (or unless its Filezilla) then everything will be peachy. I would still recommend them, especially for the cheap price.
Thanks for the reply :D
Yeah, forget i posted here! So i forgot to update :p But prices are damn cheap compared to other games for slots, its awesome prices. Better than getting a VPN maybe, at least for the prices, depending on the CPU usage of KAG. Which i don't know :D
Would anybody care to list the features of the Panel? (What can and can't it do?)
Edit: Screenshot would be good too
Each server is listed in a expandable/collapsible box. It lists pertinent info like ssh and ftp addresses and user/pass. It is really quite sparse on features. Basically it only has a start/stop server button and a restart button.
Heres a screen shot:
EDIT: Also been using HostedGameServers for almost a month now, hosting two servers (24 and 12 slot) and they work quite nicely and are relatively easy to use (I was a complete server noob before this).
If there is an outdated config, we always appreciate someone letting us know. We just have to update our game template and everyone in the future will get it.
As for connecting with the port, we only have five IPs per box. Our system does its best to set you at the closest port to default across all of our IPs but sometimes we just cant. In any case, its best to remember to connect with the port always specified.
want to host a server but whats the website?
Hosted by jrgp (KAG's webmaster).
KAG servers is the easiest place to rent the best King Arthur's Gold servers. It has free FTP access and instant deployment. It's as simple as choosing the number of slots, paying via paypal, and your server will be started within seconds!
Located in Florida, USA
.60/slot for public, .
.50/slot for private (USD)
Can you elaborate on the difference between private and public?
Going by common sense, I think he means between a passworded and non-passworded server. (Private being passworded).
I can guess that the reason private servers are cheaper because there's less overall traffic and people going in and out constantly?
Edit: Of course, if it means between a Gold (private) or "non-Gold" (public) servers, well, the difference is pretty much the same, except the scale is less noticeable. But generally non-gold servers have a more fluctuating player count (more leavers/joiners than in a gold server).
Would assume, but I'd rather not, since that's something easy to change. It could also mean whether or not it's listed on the KAG server browser, or perhaps something else, either way it's nice to clarify for others coming in as well.
I don't come here often, but hello everyone :)
This refers to whether or not the server is forced to have a password players use to connect with.
Changing the gold-only setting can be done easily in the admin panel, but that isn't the difference between public/private. The main reason that a private slot type exists is that it looks like all other game renters have a private server option that's slightly cheaper. It isn't cheaper due to less resources or something of that nature; I'm just following a convention. :)
This currently isn't a changeable option in kag; it always will register in the lobby.
I've rented a 12 slot server from HGS. It crash after 3-4 minutes every time I start it up. I've waited for 2 days to get a reply from the helpdesk about this, but not a word so far.
So far I can only recommend that people stay away from HGS.
I never had any problems from them and they were always very quick to respond to any issues they had. What I DO have a problem with is their price hikes.
You might consider trying my hosting instead - http://kag2dservers.com
