SiMPLE returns to roots

SiMPLE is back to where it all started, the servers have moved back to lovely northern France. They are now hosted, again, with OVH, this time in a datacenter in Gravelines, and there should be a better connection overall. Unfortunately, this move was unexpected and forced, causing downtime for a few days, and worse of all, the impossibility to redirect players from the old server to the new server IP address. Therefore, it is important that every one of you wishing to join the new SiMPLE servers, updates the in-game server list and do not forget to remove the old server entries from favorites list, if you have them saved. You must have the latest BF1942 executable which points to master.bf1942.org to retrieve the servers list in-game or apply the Battlefield 1942 GameSpy patch, which will replace automatically with the latest BF1942 executable.

SiMPLE Battlefield 1942 servers, as always, can be connected from bf1942.team-simple.org or team-simple.fr addresses, preferably. The new server IP is 37.187.92.162, in case you really need it.


*NEW* SiMPLE | BF1942

Address: 37.187.92.162   Port: 14567

*NEW* SiMPLE | RtR+SW

Address: 37.187.92.162   Port: 14568

*NEW* SiMPLE | New Maps

Address: 37.187.92.162   Port: 14569

*NEW* SiMPLE | Tanks a lot!

Address: 37.187.92.162   Port: 14571


There might be something missing with the rushed move, but it will be fixed eventually, with your help and input.

Hope to see you all enjoying the game and having fun!

Re: SiMPLE returns to roots

Hello again,
Thanks that the servers are online again, then the move seems to have worked well.
Unfortunately, you have currently turned on the “content check” again on all servers. This means you cannot join the Simple Server if you have texture and graphics mods installed. Can you please deactivate content check again?
thank you.

Hi, sorry about that. Some settings are still to be optimized. Content check is set to unpure now, it should be effective starting from next map

Re: SiMPLE returns to roots

Hi, thank you for your quick reply. I just tried it. Unfortunately, content check is still on. on one Simple Server it is off, on two other Simple Servers it is at value 1 and on the 4th Simple Server it is at value 2.
Only a few maps are affected. Comes from the new sky texture.
Regarding the advantage: the fog of death is still active. This mod doesn't give you an unfair advantage, just nicer graphics. :-)

Re: SiMPLE returns to roots

Thank you all for your kind support. Regarding the previous server moves, we should not have left OVH, they have good DDoS protection, and in this age of angry and entitled kids, it is a must have for any gameserver.

Do not worry, content check will be disabled on all servers, we do not want you to miss out on those eye-candy textures.

If you use content_check "2" (also called unpure mods) the server will only check the maps for checksums and not the rest of the files such as texture files and the like.

Dice made this possible for use with mods (example Desert combat) because its fairly easy to create checksums for maps.

Hi, if you install the HD Remaster Mod normally you will still have fog and no increased visibility. The developer of the mod intended this. Only if you load the “extraMOD” do you have increased visibility. But this is a separate mod with which you cannot join normal servers.
If your colleague doesn't have fog then he has changed something else.

Re: SiMPLE returns to roots

Does a content check = 2 (unpure) server block from joining with that HD remaster mod?

Anyway, it seems counterproductive to have any content check enabled.

Too much time passed since content check disappeared in BF1942, returning it under the current circumstances will speed up server death

Thank you :-)

I can join all servers and content check is off.

I think content check 2 would unfortunately also lead to problems. But can't say exactly.

Re: SiMPLE returns to roots

Thanks for the update tuia. I’m going to try out the new server location.

Are there any future plans to update the forums / site and perhaps bring back the tournament and stats sections that used to be part of the site a while ago? Seeing that BFTracks closed shop and only Gametrackers tracks player statistics properly, I think an alternative would be nice.

As for content check my position has always been to have it enabled with the stock version of BF1942 v1.61 or 1.612 but that would require a lot of work and will ultimately be a population killer as was already mentionned.

If PB wasn’t so useless I would also like to see it implemented on the server.

If you dont have the master-patch installed or dont want to install it for some reason then you can add the server manually.

Ports are the following:
BF1942 = 14567
RTR+SW = 14568
New Maps = 14569
Tanks a lot = 14571

In Battlefield 1942 go to:
MULTIPLAY > INTERNET > ADD SERVER > IP: 37.187.92.162 > PORT: (see above) > press OK > UPDATE
Now you have the new SiMPLE server in your list.

Remove the old SiMPLE server from your favorite:
Press once on the old SiMPLE server > REM FAVORITE

Add the new SiMPLE server to your favorite:
Press once on the SiMPLE server > ADD FAVORITE

Hope that helps you guys, cya on the battlefield.

For sure, I will inform you when it is being worked on. For now, main focus is to set the servers as they were before the move.
