The forums are back online! Sort of...

Thanks to some intrepid and dedicated 'Siege community members (thanks Kat), I've brought the Junkyard Forums back online. I've closed all old topics, so there should be no necromancy and with the exception of General > * and Starsiege > *, I've disabled new posts/replies to all other forums until I see a community need to turn them back on.

If you see something off, need a feature enabled, want to sign up as a moderator, or otherwise want to reach me directly, catch me on the Starsiege Discord.

    NEW MASTER SERVER!

    CURRENT MASTER SERVER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >

    This thread has been updated as of 2020 to reflect the current master server.

    Good news everyone, Starsiege has been made FREE TO PLAY by the IP holder, and we have a privately hosted multiplayer server.


    We are now using Jen's master server as the primary. So, if you've been using the master server from 2012, please update because that IP address is no longer reliable. If you don't have the game installed at all, you can skip ahead for a game download link that already has the master server.

    If you have it installed, keep reading...

    Instructions:
    • Your game's master.cs file is in the Dynamix/Starsiege/Scripts/ folder, navigate here.
    • Locate the file Master.cs, open it with Notepad.
    • Replace the entire contents of the file with the code provided, save, and close. Done!

    Code:
    //---------------------------------
    // master.cs
    // Last Updated 12/09/18
    //---------------------------------
    
    $Inet::Master1 = "IP:master1.starsiege.io:29000"; // Jenetrix's Master
    $Inet::Master2 = "IP:master2.starsiege.pw:29000"; // Wilzuun's Master
    $Inet::Master3 = "IP:master3.starsiege.io:29000"; // Jenetrix's Backup Master
    
    // Legacy Master Servers
    // $Inet::Master1 = "IP:ss1m1.masters.dynamix.com:29000";
    // $Inet::Master2 = "IP:ss1m2.masters.dynamix.com:29000";
    // $Inet::Master3 = "IP:ss1m3.masters.dynamix.com:29000";
    
    $inet::IPBroadcast1 = "IP:broadcast:29001";
    $inet::IPXBroadcast1 = "IPX:broadcast:29001";
    
    # times here are in ms
    $pref::maxConcurrentPings = 20;
    $pref::pingTimeoutTime = 1500;
    $pref::pingRetryCount = 2;
    $pref::maxConcurrentRequests = 10;
    $pref::requestTimeoutTime = 3000;
    $pref::requestRetryCount = 2;
    Don't have the game installed at all?

    DOWNLOAD STARSIEGE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


    The Starsiege franchise intellectual property is now owned by Hi-Rez, who has made it FREE-TO-PLAY shareware. You can find the vanilla Starsiege, Earthsiege, and Tribes games HERE: https://www.tribesuniverse.com/ ... Now, Unless you are running Win XP, or lower (i.e., 98, 95...) we don't recommend using the download directly from the Hi-Rez to play Starsiege, because it's not bug fixed or updated, and it will crash on Windows 10.


    Jenetrix has created a new game installer .exe with a full patched, updated game. It includes the vanilla game (campaign and multiplayer) "no CD patch, " anti-crashing fixes, and ambient CD music reintegration. AND this already has the master.cs file included inside. Again, you can download this for free, no worry about using old CDs or installing patches on your own.

    ---> The patched Win 10 version is available Here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...UkB6netRx7rYE2


    NOTE: You'll want to download "Starsiege: SS.IO" for the game itself first, and then "Starsiege - Extras" to automatically install the "big-ass custom community skin pack" and some other things.

    Anti-virus may flag this patched game installer. Your browser and/or Windows will ask you if you trust the file. You'll have to approve the .exe if this shows up.

        Eye's server appears to be up and down as well as constantly changing IP. I've already got a master server tested and ready to go. I would be willing to run it as the primary master with Eye's server as a backup.

          I beg to differ Barak. Eye's server has been rock solid except this past weekend. His IP has not changed at all.
          The community is already used to Eye's being the primary. Perhaps a backup role for your server would be better.
          Thanks for your on-going support Barak, another dedicated player helping keep SS alive is greatly appriciated.

                doesn't help at all to tell us it has changed without telling us what the new one is

                      Yes, that is the most recent.
                      Eye's master server is somewhat unstable, he will take it down unannounced for mantinence of the computer, he also gets power outs sometimes. The IP itself should not change, it's possible problems seeing the server are on your end.

                        no one else can see any servers right now either because the mini master server appears to be down

                        so wheres Duster Steve's mini master that he was running?

                        I suppose he took that down after the CAN guys told people that theirs was the only master.cs that was needed

                          What the hell are you taking about?
                          CAN does not host the master anymore, they have not for well over a year, so what master.cs of theirs are you refering to? Steve never said anything about shutting his master down, ever. Since his IP is dynanmic, it changes a lot, you likely do not have the current IP. He has it on the merc site.

                            was talking about this:

                            this is the only minimaster. all other should be destroyed! this just makes it confusing for people that need to update there master.cs file. Not only is it pointless to have 2, its also pointless if you don't have a static IP. (meaning an IP that never changes). Otherwise ppl keep having to edit there master.cs file and it appears there is no master server. My minimaster is static and is on 24/7 365 days.
                            Steve, until this March, updated his IP on this site regularly. Matter of fact the topic that this quote of Mercy's comes from is about Steve letting people know his updated IP address for the mini master.

                            Ironically with things like changeIP.com no one would ever have to worry about any dynamic IP server address change at all, as that sort of system would automatically update a server address (such as dustersteve.net:29000) to link automatically to whatever dynamic IP someone happened to have. A lot of modern routers - Linksys for example, can do this automatically as well, with DynDNS.org or TZO.com being built into the routers.

                            Be that as it may, the point I was making was that Steve has run a mini master longer than anyone else save NTDF Vyper, and had his server been running (which it may well have, we just may not have known the address for it since he hasn't updated the server address on this site since the warm words both you and Mercy had for and about him in the past) then Starsiege would have been up and running for all instead of being down for however many hours it was down.

                              Steve said he will be posting updates on the mercs site, which is what he has been doing. It makes more sense to post it there, most of the people going there actually play SS, mercs site has become sort of a hub for people playing SS, in fact, most everyone playing SS at least visits the site. If most of the people playing SS go there, it makes more sense to update on that site instead of here, since very few SS players come on tJY. Honestly, which makes more sense to post on?
                              If Steve was shutting his server down, he would anounce it. So far, he's been giving IP updates whenever it changes. I highly doubt he suddenly decided to shut it down because of what mercy said a year and a half ago. If you need the IP from him, go to the mercs site, or email him.

                              I don't think Mercy even plays SS anymore.
