Net7Proxy v1.74

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 30/12/2009 - 09:53am.

 


Net7Proxy v1.70

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 30/12/2009 - 09:53am.

 

 

Net7Proxy v1.57

Submitted by Tienbau on Tue, 17/11/2009 - 07:54am.

 

Update Net7Proxy to work with new Net7SSL avatar logins.

 


Net7Proxy v1.54

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 07/10/2009 - 09:50am.

Use UDP for all client opcode send-to-server.

Block UDP send between handoff and login.


Net7Proxy v1.50

Submitted by Tienbau on Fri, 21/09/2009 - 10:47am.

Added gating/docking/landing connection interlock - only one connection allowed.
Added Server startup information - if server is in startup cycle Net7Proxy will indicate this.

Net7Proxy v1.47

Submitted by Tienbau on Fri, 05/06/2009 - 12:15am.

Add packet optimisation for Nav, Deco and Asteroid (resource) type objects .


Net7Proxy v1.46

Submitted by Tienbau on Fri, 05/06/2009 - 12:15am.

Switch local-cert login to TCP to correct issues with bad connections dropping data.


Net7Proxy v1.44

Submitted by Tienbau on Thu, 04/02/2009 - 12:15am.

Added new checkbox to launcher - Local Cert. Visible when selecting 'custom' login setups.

This enables those with cleaner installs of windows to locally certify their clients. This solves INV-300 errors for about 50-70% of people. Will not work for all PC's - if this fix doesn't work for you you will need to wait for the new certificate admin (or follow the numerous INV-300 solution threads on the forum).


Net7Proxy v1.43

Submitted by Tienbau on Mon, 03/30/2009 - 12:09am.

I have made the server authenticate via SSL again until the separate SSL auth app is complete. You should be able to log in as usual again.


Net7Proxy v1.40

Submitted by Tienbau on Sun, 03/29/2009 - 12:39am.

This changes the way the client is certified. Previously the server would certify the client, which caused quite an extra load on the server, especially with undebuggable crashes inside the SSL libraries. Now Net7Proxy certifies the client locally - this will give us reduced server load and increased server stability.

In the server itself, some grouping and server object selection bugs were fixed.


Net7Proxy v1.37

Submitted by Tienbau on Sat, 01/31/2009 - 11:54pm.

updated Net7Proxy contains an important fix for characters stuck at login; characters which get booted back to Megan a lot during sector changes and also ships with missing parts.


Net7Proxy v1.36

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 01/14/2009 - 9:30pm.

Small update to fix the problem with missing content and also incomplete logins are sent back to the account login screen instead of locking.


Stress test over

Submitted by Tienbau on Sat, 01/10/2009 - 9:03pm.

Please note the stress test is over until further notice.

thankyou,

E&B Dev team.


Net7Proxy v1.34

Submitted by Tienbau on Thu, 01/08/2009 - 7:18pm.

- mod to try to get characters in that are stuck at the login page


Net7Proxy v1.33

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 01/07/2009 - 9:08pm.

- fix for sometimes getting the crypto bootout even when successfully logged into the sector.
- fix for UDP packet re-sends bogging down the server.

On the Net7 server side, since the last patch notice:

- various crash fixes and safety checks.
- process player removal more directly (safe now because player interaction all on one thread).
- fix for inventory slot loss.
- neaten up warp arrival.
- add temporary handling for Sculptor & Harpy's type devices.
- Hull patch skill fixes.


Net7Proxy 1.32

Submitted by Tienbau on Sun, 01/04/2009 - 10:20pm.

Fix for 4byte header error, and tidy up error messages.


Net7Proxy 1.31

Submitted by Tienbau on Fri, 12/19/2008 - 10:21pm.

- shutdown client if sector login fails (rather than going to login screen of mouse pointer echo death).
- use release build.


Net7proxy v1.30

Submitted by Tienbau on Sun, 10/12/2008 - 12:47am.

- removed CRC check (packet fault lies elsewhere - probably a leak from some other part of the code).


Net7Proxy v1.28

Submitted by Tienbau on Sun, 10/12/2008 - 12:46am.

Further mods for auto-reconfiguring your connection type based on connection quality.


Net7Proxy v1.27

Submitted by Tienbau on Sat, 10/11/2008 - 2:26am.

This is an interrim release of Net7Proxy designed only to improve connection for players with poor or noisy internet link to the server. Hopefully those who have had problems in space sectors but are fine on stations will have a better experience.


Net7Proxy v1.26

Submitted by Tienbau on Wed, 07/23/2008 - 2:31am.

The main part of this update should smooth the process of login.

Also:
. Smooth warp entry, there should be no more rubber banding when player goes to warp (rubberbanding on exit not fixed).
. Force terminate client at server's request (in event of client comms loss).


Net7Proxy v1.25

Submitted by Tienbau on Thu, 07/17/2008 - 9:25pm.

New Net7Proxy, this one should stabilize connections in starbases - no more missed messages or items in vendor inventories.


Net7Proxy v1.24

Submitted by Tienbau on Fri, 06/27/2008 - 12:41am.

- overhauled UDP packet re-order system, system can now recover from extended drop-out (or should be able to!)
