    To our BFBC2 players,


    Beginning last week, the =OSF= servers have been subjected to bursted denial of service attacks, targeted to only begin when player counts rise above a certain number. Obviously, the intent of this is to paint the OSF servers as unreliable or under-performing, but that is very much not the case. The web and voice services we host have been un-impacted, but the attacks have been successful in ruining in-progress matches on our game servers.


    We have been working to improve the configuration of the hosted hardware firewall and mitigation appliance rules, hopefully the coming matches are un-impacted by further attacks. Please let me know if there are any further issues; OSF members can be reached via steam or teamspeak (you can shoot us a message as a guest if we are in a locked channel).


    I've also created a Discord which you can leave quick messages and/or help requests: discord.osf.rip


    It's sad to see someone targeting such a small community of players that enjoy such an old and niche game.

    it's been so many years that i can't even recall that lol.....

    i already talked with Evil and i expressed my self that all i want is to play my favorite game and when i press TAB to see some =OSF= tags hehe

    i sent an application in the bf3 platoon that you made, please accept me so i can spread the word that our favorite game is playable again.

    have a good one

    Yeah it'd be nice to play Crysis again, but its going to be hard to get anyone to actually join.


    I'll join the discord to see whats up, but honestly i hate that pile of crap application and almost never run it. I also doubt anyone fires up battlelog anymore and the MAV platoon is full (last I checked)!!


    Be safe Sidious, stay away from that butthash.

    Thanks for reporting this, if you give me your in game name or steam profile link I'll give you a couple briefs and a safe for the inconvenience and actually reporting the issue (which is appreciated).


    Battleye is pretty much disabled on most other servers, hence why they find it so difficult to find hackers if one does happen to come on their server, and as such they can only catch them retroactively. when making the BE filters I leave them on log only for several days until, and if there are no logged exceptions (in this case there weren't), I switch them to kick. However, there appears to be a difference between script exception detection in log only and kick modes, so a few exception have been created simply by changing the filter mode (which is obviously an issue with the log only filter behavior in BE).

    I set up a discord back when I was streaming. Reckless would have access and full permissions on it to make people admins in my absence. Someone keep me in the loop when and if things change, several of you fine gents have me on FB and have my number. I hate being fucking disconnected like this

    likely nothing will change if you use ts.oldschoolfighters.com or ts.osf.rip you won't even need to update your TS setting, since I'll update the web address to point to the new server. However, if you use the IP that will change, and will no longer be 37.59.229.103. The transition will likely occur before December 31st, i.e. as soon as OVH gets their shit together and set up the server

    Yes, thanks teabag and thanks commie for carrying the torch. Let me know if there's anything you need (such as help covering costs).

    I think we owe teabag more than anyone, so if anyone should get donations as of yet it's him. That being said, the server isn't being subsidized by business efforts, so I am bearing the full brunt of the cost, help with covering costs would be much appreciated.


    Teabag, let me know if you need to host anything, and I'll get you set up

    I'm waiting for a new dedi to be set up, don't worry. also, discord is shit so I wouldn't worry about that either. FYI you can use the free amazon AWS servers to host a teamspeak server, but if you go over a certain bandwidth threshold you'll incur charges, like HolyDiver's 2 gb movie uploads to the file browser...


    Edit: In the interim please do not change permissions, upload files, etc. on the TS server or website, as they may not be carried over to the new server.

    Gentleman and ladies, it's time to sharpen your knives, since we have a new BFBC2 server!!! We have a few servers up, with info in the below post. The game, despite it's age, is surprisingly well populated and is still extremely fun (I forgot how fun BFBC2 is) so give it a try!


    There is only one rule: Don't be a dick (this includes but is not limited to cheating, glitching, and hacking).


    There are still multiple vacancies in our beloved seaside city, including multiple abandoned vehicles, shipping containers, and a lovely 15 sq. ft 1 bedroom (no bathroom) bungalow!



    Finally, server specs.

    it depends on the implementation, generally, yes you are correct. There may be some custom features not includes with the manufacter drivers that may be lost (I used the sound driver as an example since Asus likes custom sound drivers/hardware).


    As for reviews, for motherboards I find them largely useless and choose a mobo based on feature set and value. The reviews are ultimately useless for performance (because it doesn't carry between models to a meaningful degree) and stability, since bios updates constantly improve stability (especially for x370).
