Springfiles not registering maps

Post by Forboding Angel »

Can we please have a standalone application sans ZK to register maps and/or games with plasmaserver?

Perhaps this is the same issue I see, latest engines are not found on api.springfiles.com.
Latest I see on springfiles is "100.0.1-235-g0cd8d66 develop".

please use the bug tracker and not the forum when reporting issues with upq.

https://github.com/springfiles/upq

who ever maintains springfiles very likely doesn't have the time to check all sub-forums for such posts.

also, which map(s) are not registered?

plasma server fetches all maps from springfiles, so if you upload it there, its automaticly registered for plasma.

They are not registered reliably. Some are, some aren't.

Can we has standalone tool? Even if it's as manual as entering a name on a webpage and pointing it at a file on sf, I'd take it.

No idea what upq, and I bet you the majority of ppl here didn't know either till now.

this map is correctly registered: http://api.springfiles.com/?springname= ... +XIV+-+v03

what do you mean with "standalone tool"? the website upload is standalone... :roll:

Both use plasmaserver as far as I understand it, so what's the deal then?

You don't understand far enough :)

ZK has its own register of maps that is mirrored from SpringFiles. It will not mirror maps which are not uploaded to additional mirrors or if WGET failed to get the files by trying to download the entire directory. In the past, this has been subverted by an Apache upgrade rendering the maps directory inaccessible to unprivileged get, so new maps were not indexed by ZKI. The solution to that problem was using "Email the Person" superpower to contact dansan.

SWL uses api.springfiles.com to get map information, so it will show maps which ZKI failed to index.

The missing minimap snapshot is probably either because of springfiles refusing to return the image when queried the minimap url given by api; or somewhy because ZKI failed to index the map, since SWL1 (on your screenshot) used ZKI to a wider extent than currently master SWL2.

TL;DR they are not exactly using the same stuff.

XIV 0.3 is indexed by SpringFiles api, and has multiple links, so this seems like it's ZKI failure this time (seeing how ZK.info fails to find XIV 0.2 and 0.3).

I'll check what's going on a bit later. You should make more precise bug reports next time though.

Since its apparently a ZK bug, it might make more sense to ask on the ZK forum.
