WIP #011: EOReality – an American in Europe

Posted by on September 15, 2011 | One comment

There are few games server provider companies that can claim to have risen so high in such a short time. Started from a single system in May 2009, End of Reality LLC has become a leader in the North America market. Bucking conventions, EOR has chosen the path of renting servers, relying on high efficiency and stability of young intel platforms to provide the ever elusive 100% up time. With equal focus in the competitive environment as the communities Robby Hicks combines the latest hardware with the latest software and bundles it all together with a knowledgeable staff.

It’s little surprising that EA have granted EOR the Trusted Server Provider status. For many this would be cause enough for celebration. Indeed glancing at their website you’ll see plenty of Battlefield 3 promotional banners. For Robby and his team though, getting everything ready for one event isn’t enough of a challenge. Hence their rather bold move into the European market. Within the next 24hrs EOReality is set to go live in London, England.

WIP #010: PubComp – Special Source

Posted by on September 6, 2011 | No comments

For this episode we return to the source. Source Mod, to be exact. I’m joined by PubComp‘s Parable and Vincenator. The latter being the man behind the project’s SourceMod coding.

Like many of the team Vincenator has had his fill of TF2Lobby. His initial enthusiasm for Floor_Master’s work was curbed when he found he had arrived too late to contribute. Believing TF2Lobby to have fallen into a state of unrealised potential he’s keen not to let PubComp fall into the same traps. He has pounced on this open project and built the entire SM codebase on which PubComp relies. Keeping to the open nature his code may be edited in the future. I’d be surprised if this is the last we hear from him on WIP.

For his part Parable speaks of the messaging system that will link the game servers to the website database. He also makes it clear that the end of September release date is still very much on.
