OK , Its bad news that Dinner Is Served has gone , Now we have the L4Y server ( High ping for me) , But at First Sir Lots-A -Pots Maps are Hosted , then some of the old Dinner Rotation , and now ................. Goobers Maps and others(I'm not saying all of em are bad), with out the good old maps running on the server ! this will kill RF for sure , It was a big kick in the guts that the DIS server is gone , This is sad times , no-one will download the maps to play in the new L4Y server , I don't know who is running this show , but You cant add maps like that , ohhhhhhhhhh Why bother ...I give up , My last map has been uploaded , hope you enjoy it ........

Ive been wanting to discuss the Red Faction L4Y server too ...

1) the Red Faction server is not very noticable ... the server name is just named "levels4you.com" wouldn't it be better if it was renamed "Levels4You.com (Custom maps are available at L4Y)" or something like it? Im just saying that the server name is too unnoticable which needs to be changed .

2) The link on the site is also too hidden, even if people want to play in the server, they have to find the link to get there ... is there a way we could increase the font size, maybe give it its own little box with a graphic banner rather than text?

I played in the server last night and i couldn't help but notice these things ...

Not too long ago some folks wanted to see a server running some of the latest maps that were submitted here to L4Y. So I dropped eleven of the latest maps into the server. The current rotation has essentially changed once every two weeks.


Now bear in mind, there were several reasons why Dinner was shut down:

1. After running it for two years, it became a task similar to pulling my own teeth out.

2. Traffic to the server had dropped by 45% in the last season.

3. Invited a fair number of personalities to help administer the thing and I got ignored, except for 2 ppl who effectively quit playing anyhow.

4. Why subject Dinner to a slow lingering death? Let it go out with a blast. And a blast it was.


I would encourage everyone to relax. One server isn't going to make or break RF. Fatalistic thinking isn't healthy for anyone. Don't pin the future of RF on me either. I am but one player. I look to this situation as an opportunity to explore. Right now the L4Y server is running experimental applications - the server itself and the frag tracker. Also, Trash and digital have access to the server which means I can leave some teeth in my mouth. These are key distinctions as opposed to Dinner.

Now bear in mind, if this server doesn't work out - I do have a back up plan. In the meantime, I am willing to give it a chance.
I have suffered in real life for the past couple years, now its your turn!

I will have to agree that the info for the server should be more visible (larger font, larger button, flashing lights, bikini girls, etc. etc


except for that ... ... but seriously ... it does need a little pazzas

Hi all been a long time will have to join you on server if i can find my disks again and I get a break from uni-work.

I come however bearing grave news, I've just had word from NL DaC that Sir Lots-a-Pot has passed away this last friday gone. I don't know much more than that or have anyone else to confirm this. If anyone knows anymore I think they should tell the admins and maybe there should be a news post. i didn't know him that well but he seems to have been a big part of the community long before I was around and I thought it was something people should know. I'm sure he must stil have a lot of friends on this site.

Thats the same average time for !!Hooaah!! when it was running, no-one complained then, only thing I would suggest Hapa and TrashThrasher, get some news posts going when the rotation is changed.

!!Hooaah!! did it, it worked well.
If its too time consuming for you to do this Hapa, I will be happy to do it when I get my net from the 12th onward. I do understand that you are exceptionally busy




Thanks for the heads up Leninator.

Unfortunately the server is offline with issues.

The l4y server is just another server, I am too humble to promote it in the form a news post because it would be showing favourism to one server over another.

In the big picture, if it works cool. If it doesn't, thats cool too. The most important thing is trying different things and see what shakes.


Edit: It looks like the server is back up. Ker-ching!

Is the L4U server a pure faction server?


No, it is not...

I think the reason the L4Y server isn't Pure yet is because its run on a Mac and Pure currently doesn't run on Mac. Hapa Hanu seemed excited enough about Pure, so I'm sure he'd run it if he could. These are just my assumptions, though.

Honestly I don't think anyone at this time is hosting a server on a Mac. Certainly it would be a novelty. However, Mac servers do have a fault - something called an "unhandled exception error". Or at least I think that is what it is called. It causes a server to crash when a player leaves the game under normal circumstances approximately 1% of the time. lol

The main reason I am excited about Pure Faction is that it gives players and servers a choice.

The player will either accept Pure Faction or not be allowed the privilege to enter the L4Y server... at least that's what I see it boiling down to.

It will be that way with all servers soon enough

Except for the fact that it was still incredibly easy to cheat in 1.3.

1.3 also didn't have hack protection like PF does
