I've uploaded more versions of my game and a new map recently.

The game package seems to have been downloaded automatically for most people, but doesn't show up on the api (latest one shown there is v1.39, latest uploaded to SF is v1.47).

The map I've uploaded two days ago is "Highway 95 East v1". It doesn't show the "heightmap/metalmap/minimap" images that normally should appear for uploaded maps and people haven't been able to automatically download it through the lobby.

The infra continues to deliver.
Now springfiles is down. Consequentially all PRd downloads are down as well.

the server is maintained by someone else who doesn't care this much about stability it seem: it broke because updates where installed without checking/fixing springfiles afterwords.

IceXuick reported that there is still an issue with springfiles currently:

https://github.com/springfiles/upq/issues/62

Could you pick up on this and take a look if this can be solved any soon? This makes us unable to update maps since 1,5 a month now. Thank you in advance.

Springfiles is online but it's not working properly.

I was going to upload a new game version, but after uploading the metalfactions-v1.48.sdz the page reloads with the empty "create file" form.

https://api.springfiles.com/upload/

I've tested uploading metalfactions-v1.49.sdz here using my forum password and my springfiles password and get "Invalid username or Password" in both cases (the user name is the same).

What does "springrts.com Username" on the form mean?

With the lobby credentials i was able to upload metalfactions-v1.50.sdz.

It doesn't show up on springfiles or on "https://api.springfiles.com/" though.

right, you had shown me that before for an earlier version. The version is shown if "Metal Factions v1.50" is used on the search box, but not "Metal Factions*". Using "metal_factions-v1.50.sdz" on the filename filter also gets no results despite the output shown below.


The output I got was kind of confusing:

Code: Select all

symlinking /tmp/springfiles-upload/metalfactions-v1.50.sdz /home/upq/upq/tmp/tmp9ht3h6u6/games/metalfactions-v1.50.sdz

File doesn't exist: /tmp/springfiles-upload/metalfactions-v1.50.sdz
b'GetPrimaryModDescription: deprecated unitsync function called: GetPrimaryModDescription'
the result shows a mirror

Code: Select all

mirrors:
		0:https://api.springfiles.com/files//Metal Factions v1.50 (not available as sdz)
but if i click the link i get a "404 not found".

These don't show up on the main springfiles website which is now showing spam:

Is the main springfiles web site going to be taken down? might be a good idea if we get another kind of index for content. But this needs to be more reliable. It's very easy to miss things using the search filter atm.

It'd be nice if we could migrate the springfiles data to the new format in such case.

thats "known", but the importance is/was very low as long as springfiles.com exists. its more to show the functionality of the api. a quick hacked frontend for that api shows what could be possible: https://api.springfiles.com/newindex.html but this needs a lot of love to be useful.

no clue, but its just a matter of time when it will break again: maybe at some point unfixable. the issues you wrote are known:

https://github.com/spring/upq/issues/66
https://github.com/spring/upq/issues/61

what you see is the result of to few manpower + lack of motivation.

the json replies lack some of the data that's on the springfiles entries, namely
- thumbnail links (vs the big image links)
- content description

(also this)

what you see on springfiles.com is close to completely unrelated to what you see on api.springfiles.com: the data is in a different database.

creating a script which creates thumbnails of existing pictures would be some "homework". the content description could be migrated: but this requires a possibility to edit it by the uploader / "owner", also some format for simple layout stuff is required i guess, markdown is a good candidate.

my only wish when touching the backend code of upq is: replace the php code with python as this allows to remove a lot of duplicate code.
