Info on Quake 3 and VOGON servers - live status of all Q3 servers

VOGON.VG ?

Postby ES*StickMaN » Sun Feb 27, 2011 20:02 UTC

I realize I haven't been on the forum in a very long time and so im a little lost on anything current going on but i just noticed that vogon.vg is gone now? and so i'm wondering is it just the domain name thats gone or are the q3 servers gone too? and if they are gone is this a permanent thing ?
If this topic has already been posted by another member then i am sorry for creating a new one its just that i didn't see any related topics right away and don't have allot of time at the moment to do a search

I hope vogon is still around.. I know it cost money to run servers and it seems like theres never anyone on them anymore so i can understand why Dyn might stop them.... And so if that is the case then maybe some people can donate to get them back up and running... :DD

It was DNS issue at domain provider, because they didn't sync domain in time.

Stick, if q3 goes down i will post about it on forum. Before saying we have no players, check UK and UK CTF. We had 15 players on CTF few days ago, and i am not checking it constantly. Welcome back.

Agreed.

New DNS is more or less propagated, but your PC may still cache erroneous entries, so you reboot it or use IP to connect directly:
UK FFA: /connect 109.200.19.178
UK CTF: /connect 94.76.201.171
US FFA: /connect 209.159.146.108

HQ-1 (US FFA) 12-15 players for hours, 2011-02-28

Certainly much better than yesterday, when most people had wrong DNS.
Anyone concerned about low players on times -- solution is very simple, join the game and play! :)

I am posting this so people can see Q3 is still alive, at least on some servers. :)

Your connect problem is something different, issue yesterday was exclusively misconfigured DNS, and it was fixed in 2 hours by domain provider, it was their error. If you can't connect not even directly with IP then your firewall may be blocking or something like that.

GREAT to see everything working again .....

But it was sort of a reality check for me at the same time ....meaning that we are all lucky to have the Vogon servers to play on whenever we want....
Imagine if there were no vogon servers.... we would be stuck with the same old boring q3 servers with slow game play and that would be lame.....
And i doubt that many of us would play q3 at all if that were the case... (there is nothing quite like the intensity of running into a room and throwing yourself up into the air with the rocket launcher and then spraying everyone below with rockets....lol...) .you just can NOT do that on a normal q3 server without killing yourself in the process. :dead3:
And so to get to the point what I'm really saying here is THANK YOU dyn for keeping the game alive with the vogon servers .... :DD

And lets all keep the vogon servers online by donating to the cause if possible....
NOTE: Even with the vogon mod and source code realeased to the public now like it is the game would still not be the same since without dyn messing with the settings like he does to keep the game interesting it just wouldnt be Vogon... :scared2:

I realize i hardly ever play much anymore maybe about once a week if that since i don't have the time i used to have and my connection here sucks but when suddenly faced with the thought of never playing again ......well that wasn't a good feeling and so i will try to donate something soon ... :-D

Stick ....
