Now that I have some extra time to tinker with things, I thought I'd try and bring this back.
If I host a Road to Rage server that would be available 24/7, would anyone play it?
I got it working on my old VPS and wanted to migrate everything over to the new one.
If there isn't enough interest, there's no point in me worrying about it. Practically all the servers on the list within the game are never up. I dont' know if nobody's interested in playing the game anymore, or if it's just a matter of server availability.
Thanks!

It's kind of a niche game, my buddy has a server up too but no one uses it as far as I know. So did I for a while, no use. I don't play it because I suck at it.

I'd definitely play, it's getting enough people interested again which I think will be the problem. Ever since most of the public servers went down, it's really hard to find a time when the existing ones have enough players connected to make it worthwhile.

The glass is neither half empty nor half full. It's just holding half the amount it can potentially hold.

2019-05-11 19:12:43

yeah, we need more people to play with! i'll play for sure if there would be enough peeps to kill!

flawless victory!

Seeing as how this already got a handful of responses, and some of my friends already expressed interest, I'll set it up as soon as I deploy my server. No promises, but I'm hoping to have it up by the end of the weekend.

Hello,
Problem is not just server availability. Please, until player base gets large enough, do not put in large maps. Maps like watery and corridor are good enough for starters. You can make them bigger and smaller according to player base.

Thanks, burak.
There's 42 available maps. Start listing which ones you guys would like to play with most, bearing burak's comment in mind.

2019-05-11 21:21:55

Corridor and watery are good. I would say housemap too but it would be large for over 2 people.

yeah, corridor, watery and masonsplace are my favorits to mess up with people. Clocktower is excellent too. And apartment for sure!

flawless victory!

2019-05-11 23:31:20

Apartment, Watery, and Mason's Place are my favorites, not necessarily in that order. Ship Dock is also good, but that one can get crowded in a hell of a hurry if there's more than 3 or 4 players around. It is good for two people to brutally kill each other, though, since it's so small. I personally despise Clock Tower, there are a lot of ways to get turned around on that thing, but I get why people like it. It's a good candidate for a reasonably sized map.

Good news: I just grabbed a quick VPS (I don't plan on doing anything heavy with a remote server just yet). I was messing around a bit, and figured out how to run the RTR server without having to be logged into an SSh session. The process would be killed when I exited the terminal.
I'm going to just make sure everything is set up on the RTR server, then I'll post the IP. Depending on how how much I plan on using this VPS, I may go for a bigger instance. I wanted to save the $5 for now. You'll all have to just keep tabs on the IP address being used for the RTR connection.

Yup, that's what I'm using.

Just wish I knew how to pronounce it...

2019-05-12 00:07:41

lol, my favorite is housemap. I don't usually like the othehrs, but i try my best in whatever map i gete placed in by these randomized things. I like housemap because of its sort of simplicity. It could get crouded, however that would just mean, more death, right?

@21, it might be the opposite. Perhaps it's blocking access to my server?
