Arokh's Lair Drakan game server

Postby Arokhs Twin » Tue Apr 15, 2008 10:25 pm

Basically an extract from the news page on this web site:-

I have decided to stop hosting Drakan multiplayer games at the weekends and hence the Arokh's Lair Drakan game server will no longer be running. This is simply because so-one plays on it anymore; I see the odd player every now and then and its not enough to justify the running of a machine plus its a waste of electricity. The server hardware is being replaced with a low power Linux based NAS box with FTP capability so the Drakan music and other files will still be hosted.

When the new server is set up, the FTP address will be ftp://212.169.37.181 login = drakan, password = drakan unless I decide to go for HTTP files hosting in which case the server will still be available at http://212.169.37.181

Well, my belief is that Eris was our good luck charm.

Whenever I played with her, other people showed up.

Now that she's gone, hardly anybody plays. Or nobody does.

Maybe we need to get her back.

Zienna and I tried to use the servers, but her current (backup) computer isn't capable of playing the game.

I'd like you to keep the servers around, if it's not inconvenient.

It actually ran on an old laptop which I am selling on to someone else. The new unit is a dedicated NAS box which runs linux and therefore cannot host games unfortunatley.

Thats a pity. :(

The only reasons I cant connect is I dont have a good connection to the servers.But my other computer could,but my processor caught on fire in it one day.

I was considering a youtube campaign.

Lots of Drakan material there.

Find buckmana on youtube. I have some Drakan videos. And will add more in the future.

The server is now running more or less 24/7 hosting game files & music @ http://212.169.37.181
I will get round to setting up a game server on my own PC but obviously it won't be running all the time.

EDIT: The FTP server kept screwing up so its now back to http hosting at http://212.169.37.181

That can be done.

Air levels are that type.

Or you could join me in Giblet's Club Hq (can't remember what it is called exactly).

There's an area with two dragons to control.

Air levels keep crashing on me when I join a server as soon as I start doing fancy maneuvers.

Fancy Pants!

Why don't you share some of those maneuvers with the noobs?!

In fact, ANY old Drakan Multiplayer Aces should give up on their secret stash of tips.
It's about time.
(this from the guy who can never be found in an online game of Drakan...)

Learn how to fly with ALWAYS holding either left or right rudder applied. This increases your speed!

Actually I have noticed that its, not really the manouvers that crash the system but the dragons fire! Most times its magma that will crash the system, but ice and lightning will to. Some of the levels were designed to not have these in for the dragons weapons. OR you can have the players agree to not use the magma shot!

Oh, I thought maybe I was the only one. The ground levels all work like a charm. In air, I can breath fire and magma wihtout crashing, but only if I'm not moving.
