fightclub server and installing BA

Post by saturnV »

Hi
some problems with installing BA from springfightclub. Maybe some can be fixed:

1) local install of springlobby did not work. The selection-box was greyed out. I do not want to fill my system HDD with game files :?

2) I joined a room. Map and engine were downloaded.
But balanced_annihilation-v11.0.7.sdz was not automatically downloaded by springlobby.
Worse, at Documents\My Games\Spring\ there was a "maps" folder but no "games" folder. So potentially a new player would not know where to copy the file to.

3) springlobby does some pop-up about no user-agreement existing on server. Maybe can be added?

4) springlobby does some pop-up about ssh-keys.

5) relayhosting: maybe could be added? (does not work on spring-server either)

6) Why are you using old springlobby version?

thanks for hosting

just use version 267 of springlobby linked on fightclub and it should autodownload or use betaversion of zorros new lobby https://github.com/marciomarim/elobby/releases .

that is with springlobby 0.267 downloaded from BA website.
i tried rooms of some other mods/ba versions and those downloaded. But with some strangeness, like showing "completed" download while at 0%

adding to point 4: the message is "Error in curl SSL peer certificate or SSH remote key was not OK"

Goal is to replace it with zorros functional lobby so players don't feel like they are using a 1998 web browser to play BA.
3) springlobby does some pop-up about no user-agreement existing on server. Maybe can be added?
Joke by mando towards the Spring devs draconian overreach, when he was rebuilding it without botflags.
4) springlobby does some pop-up about ssh-keys.
5) relayhosting: maybe could be added? (does not work on spring-server either)
6) Why are you using old springlobby version?
Mando still wakes up screaming from nightmares since going through Spring code, makes us feel bad asking him to fix it. Yes ssh error is normal, maybe its certificate related, Mando would know.

He focuses on highest priority first. Email verification "upgrade" had 0 consideration for backwards compatibility, breaking every preceeding lobby client in the history of spring and making it impossible for new players play BA or see messages.

P.S. saturn please double check the version of your lobby by clicking help > about, it should be 0.267, if you ever press update button it breaks.

Lol no, its just the default message when no user agreement exists.
