There was a problem with the bans. You should be able to join SIMPLE BF 1942 (FRA) server.

#3 Re: Feedback » SiMPLE expansion into other FPS titles » 2019-02-12 00:07:10

Great post, Black Mamba. I would like to help out Battlefield Vietnam players indeed, the code is very similar to Battlefield 1942, and that is a plus. There are other old FPS game titles interesting: Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, Medal of Honor. I never liked Quake, Unreal Tournament and Doom type of games.

Let's not forget Battlefield Secret Weapons Demo. smile It was always great fun playing Hellendoorn modded 24/7.

Can you add more game options to the poll, please?

Tuia, I know you are working hard to maintain this website but have you ever thought of implementing a SSL certificate on your domain? Wouldn’t it make the forums safer?

I will do that in about a month.

There are passwords: https://api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/4BC4A. But, the rest of the hash is not in that list.

Here is the first five digits of my super secret password hash:  4BC4A

Find the password, if you think it is possible. smile

Tuia, don't get me wrong but try to think a bit deeper.

You have a password, an insecure password like "monkey", for example. It's a typical thing for people to get passwords like this one to always remember them. As far as you know, it's possible to get hash from the string but it's not possible to get string from the hash. I believe you will never get something like "iwrestledapolarbeartwice" from any hash but it doesn't work for insecure passwords like "monkey" because it's a very common issue. There are bases of stolen passwords, no hashes, no salt. If you have a table of passwords, you can get another column in this table with hashes of these passwords.

For example.


md5(monkey) is d0763edaa9d9bd2a9516280e9044d885



If there is a base of stolen passwords, there are also a table of stolen usernames, addresses, locations etc. In case of request for checking the passwords, the script can seek somewhere to get usernames and addresses associated with this password or hash. There could be a lot of records but only a few with the same IP or another address from the same range.

I know about brute-force, rainbow tables and that MD5 and SHA1 hashes are insecure, but what are you failing to realize is that the complete SHA1 hash of a password is not sent to that Pwned Passwords website, it is just the first 5 digits of that hash. So, that means there are 16^35 combinations remaining. In other words, your password is still safe, if you check by that method.

#9 Re: News and Announcements » Pwned Passwords » 2019-01-31 11:09:33

You are spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD). Do not type your password in that website, if you are that worried, you just have to send the first 5 digits of the SHA1 hash of your password to check it, how hard is that?

Actually, I think it is a very good service by Troy Hunt and I may add this to the forum registration and login pages, with a very simple method:

 * Simple method to use the API from https://www.troyhunt.com/ive-just-launched-pwned-passwords-version-2/
 * Written by Jim Westergren and released to public domain
 * @return int count
function checkPwnedPasswords(string $password) : int
    $sha1 = strtoupper(sha1($password));
    $data = file_get_contents('https://api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/'.substr($sha1, 0, 5));
    if (FALSE !== strpos($data, substr($sha1, 5))) {
        $data = explode(substr($sha1, 5).':', $data);
        $count = (int) $data[1];
    return $count ?? 0;

Thank you for your report. He is banned.

#13 Re: News and Announcements » Pwned Passwords » 2019-01-29 12:50:58

Yes, but that is just visually, the Pwned Passwords website can log and store your password, which I do not believe it does.

#15 Re: News and Announcements » Pwned Passwords » 2019-01-29 12:15:33

If you are concerned of typing your passwords in an "unknown" website to check if they are leaked, your sensible choice would be to create the SHA1 hash of your password and send the first 5 digits of that hash to the Pwned Passwords website, like Trench explained.

You can create SHA1 hash of any text in Windows with QuickHash GUI program instead. Then, send just the first 5 digits of the hash to api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/ and check if the rest of the hash is present in the response. If it is not, your password is not leaked.

An example, suppose the password you want to check is "12345678". The SHA1 hash is 7C222FB2927D828AF22F592134E8932480637C0D, and then you type in your browser tab api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/7c222 and you will see in the text response that the rest of the hash is there:


2889079 leaks of "12345678" password is not surprising, since most people use these weak, easy to remember, passwords.

I use 3 different passwords for all accounts, but the usual recommendation is to use a different strong password for every account and have a password manager, like KeePass for example, to save them. In case one password gets leaked the other accounts are not at risk.

Pwned Passwords are real world passwords previously exposed in data breaches. You should check your passwords in this website: https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords

If you have a leaked password, you should change it right away. To change this forum password, go to Profile > Essentials > Change password.

#17 Re: Feedback » Autobalance teams? » 2019-01-28 16:42:48

Ok, I think it works, I did not have time to test it rigorously, please, report any problems. I am not sure if new players are assigned to each team randomly, when autoBalanceTeam is enabled.

#18 Re: Feedback » Autobalance teams? » 2019-01-28 13:38:44

I did a small change to autobalance system in BF1942 server, it now does not switch killed players to the team with less players , it only prevents players from switching to the team with more players, when autoteambalance is activated.

To add that change to bf1942_lnxded.static binary, at offset 0x105C26 change byte values from 75 08 to 90 90 and to bf1942_lnxded.dynamic it is at offset 0x10CC96. To BF1942_w32ded.exe at offset 0x73AD5 change byte value from 74 to EB.

This is actually not a funny video, it is rather cringy, but it is in line with the previous American Idol video I've posted and it details a typical jewish behavior:


#21 Re: BF1942 Discussion » Strasbourg Custom Map event [Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 @18:30 CET] » 2019-01-28 12:37:01

In my opinion, all these mod events should have 2 previously arranged teams, and have players register freely to each team. That way it will attract more players and be more organized, than expecting anyone to join the event.

#22 Re: Feedback » Tone down the APC Mobile Spawnpoint? » 2019-01-28 12:19:00

Thank you for the detailed feedback, BFSoldier1. Those changes will be done this weekend, it should be fairly easy and quick to do.

Your ban expired that day.

#24 Re: Feedback » TeamSpeak update? » 2019-01-20 20:30:05

It is finally working, connect to ts.team-simple.fr or ts.team-simple.org.

Mumble server is also ready: mumble.team-simple.fr or mumble.team-simple.org.

If you wish to have a private channel in SiMPLE's Mumble or TeamSpeak server for your clan or your group of friends, PM me with details and I will get back to you, as soon as possible.

Yes, it is under "Alex" player name. You were banned for too many minus-score kicks. You are not banned anymore, please, be careful Alex Reaper and read the server rules. Thank you.

#26 Re: Feedback » Autobalance teams? » 2019-01-13 19:49:26

Yes, the team balance system in BF1942 has to be fixed. If anyone has a simple and brilliant idea to improve the autobalance of players, please share it.

#28 Re: Videos and Screenshots » dary streaming » 2019-01-13 17:15:39

I watched a little bit of your public streaming yesterday and it had very good quality with no hiccups. I only wish you were a native english speaker, because I barely understand a word in german.

Have fun, no matter what is the war result.

#30 Re: Technical Help » Data Differs From Server (Battlefield Vietnam) » 2019-01-12 16:16:20

I don't remember exactly, it was some time ago, I think some No CD patches for Battefield Vietnam did not patch correctly for LAN gameplay. That 'Data differs from server' is because your BFVietnam.exe has a different CRC than the executable hosting the LAN server. I believe BFVietnam SiMPLE patch addresses this error.
