    Re: ¤ The Complete PW Package ¤

    Alright, (for those who want to know) so the deal was that: I made a post that got deleted, and I got rather heated about it; that's why the thread was down for a while; I got into a pissing match with the [current] mods... At this point I do blame myself more than them because I was in such a state that I wasn't able to clearly communicate with them any longer (all I really could/did do was rage)! Long story short I had made a ranty (anti Win10) post, and had just recently spent ~10 hours helping someone out! So I had/was actually forgetting what I had posted that they had deleted (I have CRS ~ Can't Remember Shit)! So, if they're not against it, for posterity, I will leave the ORG deleted post in a spoiler, but leave a more (proper) on-topic and hopefully less ranty post here, in it's place!

    Spoiler:
    Nice! Sadly, I (still) cannot condone the usage of Win10, it is pure trash IMHO. I literally just "fixed" a laptop for a friend that was Windows 10. MicroSNOT has done everything they can to STOP you from stopping their updates. And THAT (IMHO) is BULLSHIT...! If it's MY machine, and MY OS, then *I* chose when and what happens, NOT you (MicroSNOT)...! My friend complained about not being able to turn off this auto updating BS so he gave it to me. I of course recommended just having me wipe it and install Win7, but for whatever reason he does need 10 (maybe for work)... So I begrudgingly agreed to attempt to find a fix, but also disclosed I may not succeed (because I HATE 10 - and know very little about it because of such)... I *THINK* I finally succeeded, by literally not only stopping the W/U "service" but by also DELETING it! I actually got so pissed I just considered it "done" and let him know I only THINK I succeeded... Because, and as I let him know, there was ANOTHER service in there called something like "windows update medic service", and I could NOT delete IT >.< There was LITERALLY nothing I could do to delete THAT service... So I warned him that I could foresee THAT service, somehow (later on) "fixing" the windows update service that I had stopped and REMOVED... But at least "for now" Windows Update was "disabled"...

    Now of course if you're "geeky" enough, like myself, I could also just BLOCK all outbound communications to "MicroSNOT" in my router/gateway; this however isn't a very realistic solution for most people, like my "non-techy" friend! It's also not a long term solution since, upon changing router/gateway hardware, or switching ISP - you would need to do this (all over) again... So not a solution one could easily set up for a "non techy" friend... As soon as they changed ISPs, or changed or upgraded their router/gateway - or their ISP performed a "silent update" to the gateway, could undo this action too!

    But anyway, that's the straw that broke the camels back for me, I will NEVER "upgrade" to Win10, and never use it at all if I can really help it... Windows 7 is where the train stops for me. MicroSNOT has gotten out of hand...!

    I thereby do NOT support Win10 in ANY way shape or form!!! But if it works for you, well then, power to you, and I am happy for you ;)
    Basically, I do *not* recommend Win10 (and VMWare 16+) for running the server from this release. I <3 VMware but it does seem after helping multiple people that Ubuntu 12.04.3 itself doesn't want to function on VMWare 16+, only v15x or lower! So, that being said, make sure you use VMWare v15x or lower if you're going to be checking this out on a Windows host!

    That being said, I also do not recommend Win10, I do personally hate it! I do recommend Win7 if you're going to be checking this out on a Windows host. That being said, I can not and do not recommend (ever) actually running a server from a Linux virtual machine within ANY windows host in the first place, not for a 'production environment' anyway! There's nothing wrong with using a Windows host and a Linux virtual machine for experimentation and learning however! Also, as a side note, just in case you couldn't tell this release is not ready "right out of the box" for a "production environment" either! The whole release is primarily meant as a means to learn enough so that you can set up a production quality server on your own Also, the client should work on Win10, at least I know the official "retail" game is still going, and since Win7 is EOL, the client surely should work on Win10! But when it comes to the server, you may desire to save yourself the headache of using a virtual machine at all in the first place, and set it up on a dedicated Linux machine!

    Moving right along, one of the issues that I have seen come up almost *every* time now, when DEALING with Win10 is the AUTO UPDATE... This comes up in regard to PW, and it comes up in general too... So: if you ARE running Win10 and you need some help disabling auto update; MicroSNOT has all but removed any "native" ways of doing this (one of the reasons I will NOT switch to it - not that I cannot get around it, just as a matter of principle at this point)! So, that being said, there's not going to be any "easy" native way to "just turn it off"! Almost every method is going to be "complex" or "geeky"!

    One way you could do it, would be to block the proper IP addresses (and or domain names) at your router/gateway... Simply use a program like PROCMON (process monitor) -or- NetBalancer to establish where Windows Auto Update is connecting to, then block ALL of them! There may be pre-made lists floating around the interwebs too (just check the dates on them) I personally think this method may be the easiest, but only if you're already "super 'geeky'" when it comes to networking; if you're not I could easily see that being "too hard" or something "going wrong". That being said, if successful - you wouldn't have to do this on every machine in your network, you'd ONLY have to do it at the network level, and it would effect every machine in your network That being said, this is not a method I would 'set up' or 'help' someone else with, because all it takes to nullify your "work" (or help) would be for your friends ISP to perform a "silent update" of the gateway/router, or if they changed the gateway/router (your friend or their ISP), or if they flat out changed ISP's! Basically, unless you're doing this on hardware that you/they completely own, it may need to be "re-done" over time (depending on your circumstances)! I cannot really post too much info/help on this as, hardware/firmware is VERY different among ISP's, countries, people, ETC! You'll just have to know what you're doing (or figure it out) on this one!

    The next method actually involves REMOVING the system service "WUAUSERV" AKA "Windows Update". First you're going to need the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools. First you're going to want to stop the service (from services.msc) then use instsrv.exe (from the resource kit) to remove the service! I also recommend removing "BITS" AKA "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" since that is something else Windows Update uses (Pretty sure you'll lose MSN explorer by doing this, but who uses that anyway!?)... First "run" "services.msc" and stop the BITS and WUAUSERV services, then run a "cmd" (command prompt where instsrv.exe is) "instsrv BITS remove" and "instsrv wuauserv remove". poof no more auto update!

    Now I have noticed on a 'newer' system they even actually have a service called something like "windows update medic service", and there was literally nothing I could do to get rid of it! So, if you have that, I wish the best of luck to you (as I'm guessing at some point it may be able to STILL restore your auto update stuff, minus the fact that you DELETED the service(s) used)! I guess the only steps you could further take in an attempt to assure it never "turns itself back on" would be to unregister some of the pertinent DLL's and DELETE those too! for that you're basically going to want to type "REGSVR32 /U "<dll path/name here>" " for each of the following DLL's if they exist in your system (remember to delete them first from the windows file protection cache and the %WINDIR%\ServicePackFiles\i386 folder)!
    • wuauhelp.chm (Windows Update AutoUpdate Help File) %WINDIR%\Help
    • wuau.adm (Very interesting) %WINDIR%\Inf
    • wuauclt.exe (Windows Update AutoUpdate Client) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wuaucpl.cpl (Windows Update AutoUpdate Control Panel) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wuaueng.dll (Windows Update AutoUpdate Engine) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wuauserv.dll (Windows Update AutoUpdate Service) %WINDIR%\System32
    • qmgr.dll (BITS) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wupdinfo.dll (Windows Update Info for NT) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wupdmgr.exe (Windows Update Manager for NT) %WINDIR%\System32
    • wuv3is.dll (Windows Update-engine) %WINDIR%\System32

    Finally, delete the "\Program Files\WindowsUpdate" folder if it exists (Note: it is a hidden directory). This directory is used by both the Windows Update website and the Automatic Update client. Also delete any "\WUTemp" folders you might find in the root of your drives. (This folder is also hidden).

    Spoiler:
    If you are slipstreaming Windows or doing a network/RIS installation of Windows (or Service Pack) you could use this little trick to disable Windows AutoUpdate during install: comment out this entry in i386\au.inf

    [AU_regsvr_rule]
    ;11,,wuaueng.dll, 1 ; 1 means call DLLRegisterServer
    ; Commented out to not install autoupdate service






    NOW, get this, all that garbage is for Win10 HOME... If you have Win10 PRO; you are in luck - it's actually relatively straight-forward for PRO users Here's the "instructions" for Win10 PRO (disabling auto update):

    • "run" "gpedit.msc" (go to your group policy editor)
    • Go to "Computer Configuration" > "Administrative Templates" > "Windows Components" > "Windows Update".
    • Double-click "Configure Automatic Updates".
    • Select "Disabled" in Configured Automatic Updates on the left, and click Apply and "OK" to disable the Windows automatic update feature.

    And I guess, hey, if anything ever changes in the future (like they decide to remove this ability from pro) "PRO" users will still have the above to reference later on!

    Re: ¤ The Complete PW Package ¤

    Just a heads up (especially to anyone about to DL this now);

    there will be (yet another) major update to this entire package ~ most likely (just in) time for the actual TEN Year Anniversary! One of the biggest things/features will be that, now that I am working on "monster spawner" and "ptemplate" "fixes", I will be going through and assuring that ALL versions gs has these "fixes", AND the new one for wallow control! Some more minor updates to PW_DEV.iso (like adding IDA 7.0 free - as one example)!!!

    Stay Tuned !!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll go ahead and leave the links live in case anybody REALLY wants it as it stands,,, but I warn: Since we're finally upon the actual TEN Year Anniversary, this update is gonna be a blow-out!!! I highly suggest, if you want it, and don't already have it; just wait until this update drops!

    Re: ¤ The Complete PW Package ¤

    @343
    Btw, I've never had the opportunity to say thanks!

    So, thanks to preparing this package, back in 2013 I was able to start to realize that coding was my future. Now almost 10 years later I came back in forum just to ask if you allow me to publish your package for a more "descentralized" version (I know, It's focus on begginers and people whom doenst know linux very well). But last friday I challanged myself to undestrand your installation script and understand what pw server was about.

    After 24 hours, I finally updated the bundle for ubuntu 20.04 LTS and install all libraries wich, btw, doenst crack "apt-get". I could install php 7.4 and mysql 8 but unfortunatly all web package doenst work such as pwAdmin and the register.... But I'm working on it to make it better with some Node.js server...

    My ideia initialy was just understand the whole package, but i got excited and "upgraded", and now I'm trying to make a Docker version with Swarm and separeted services with we can provide Dockerfile and just build and deploy, no big deal.

    What do you think?And, another problem that I've detected was gameanticheat wasn't working at starting the server at PWServer/136/log/syslog...

    And another question, the 'services' loaded by /PWServer/136/start_min.sh sush as "/uniquenamed gamesys.conf"in gamesys.conf there is some IP's in wich file pw server comunicates with database?

    So, finalizing, thanks for your contributtion for pw community, as if you allow me I can help in this scenario. Not making to promote myself, just help people who just want to install a pwserver more easly with docker.

    Thank you! God bless!

    ________________________________________________________________________

    Update:

    I'm trying to install on docker, and it's working fine at the point where mysql + /PWServer are in the same server, but I want to change this config where /PWServer is in container X and MYSQL in container Y. But, i'm struggling in where is in /PWServer/136/?? makes connection with MYSQL?
    It's all 127.0.0.1... I'm receiving this err MSG:

    err : gdelivery:: disconnect from GameDB
    I'm trying to figure it out from /PWServer/136/gdeliveryd/gamesys.conf but not quit sure where to point MYSQL....

    I've tryed:

    [GameDBClient]
    type = tcp
    port = 3306
    address = 172.21.0.4
    [GameDBClient]
    type = tcp
    port = 29400
    address = 172.21.0.4
    [GameDBClient]
    type = tcp
    port = 29400
    address = db
    NOTE: db is a service from docker-compose.yml, if $ ping db it's reponses with IP's addres of container
    ____________________________________________________________________

    UPDATE!

    Made it!

    PefectWorld 1.3.6 woking on Docker with docker-compose, working on swarm!

    Re: ¤ The Complete PW Package ¤

    You're "free" to do whatever you want with this package... I started it because way back when I started there were essentially no "working" 'distributions' that would work straight "out of the box"... So I made this... There were some pretty good releases, that I was able to eventually make work so I was able to learn about the basics of it all. I then decided it would be nice to have a fully functional 'release' around here so that it would be so easy to install, you could literally teach a monkey how to do it, and have a running server as a result!

    I, both back then and now, still think that having a fully working 'package' could help people learn - at least those that actually want to... Sure, some people will just use it with no desire to actually learn anything about it, but that's fine too. I think it's easier for those who want to learn though, to be able to tinker with something that's already working...! Rather than try to make it work, and potentially quit after becoming frustrated that they cannot make it work... Of course, how can someone who doesn't know about something - be expected to make it work!? At least to me, that makes a lot of sense... If I wanted to learn about an engine, and how it worked - would I learn more off of one that's already running, or would I learn more off of one that's in need of 'tinkering' first!?

    But anywho, yea if you have dug into this release then you already know why it "requires" Ubuntu 12.04.3 - and that reason is (for *anyone* who doesn't know) because this release/package is designed so that there are literally ZERO external dependencies... That is, it ALSO installs ia32-libs for you - OFFLINE... So for example, you could install this if you're at a traditional LAN party (with no internets), or if you were on an island with no internets, or ANY scenario where you are "offline"! the ia32-libs that are bundled with it, are of course, very specific to Ubuntu 12.04.3... So the ONLY way to change that would be to manually install ia32-libs, which then also goes against the "SIMPLE" nature of this release/package... That's one MORE step than is truly needed for people to just simply get started with a fully working server, at least with this package, exactly the way I have it set up!

    I do have to admit that even though I am doing a major update as we speak for the 10th year anniversary (which is only like 4 days away!) changing that aspect, is NOT something I am 'working on'... I have NO desire to bring this package up to a newer version of Ubuntu or dealing with the headache that is "ia32-libs"... It was actually quite a headache to set up an 'offline' install of ia32-libs! That and, from what I understand - they have 'discontinued' ia32-libs on the newest versions of Linux too (replaced with "multiarch" er something)! Plus, anyone who digs deep enough into this release will KNOW how to install this package on an OS other than Ubuntu 12.04.3, and installing ia32-libs on their own would be *simple*!

    That is something I will never get "too specific" on around here, because then I'm sure that will introduce a whole plethora of people asking "HOW TO UPDATE OS VERSION FOR THIS", when, that's exactly one of the things I'm persistent people should learn on their own through usage and exploration of this package and all of it's contents - as it is! So I do not ever plan on getting too specific about "how to update the OS" or "how to use a different OS" because those nitty gritty details can be learned over time by using this package and digging around in it! If someone asks how to update / use different OS; my honest answer would basically be "figure it out"! Because that IS the goal of this package! To provide a perfectly working example of a fully functional server... Once one "digs around" it enough, they will just know how to do that, and not even have to ask! They will be able to "just do it" (like Nike said LOL)!

    But anyway, yes, you're free to do whatever you want with it... That's why I put it out there! Bearing that in mind, it's really primarily meant for learning or those who just want a functional PW server to "tinker around on", or to run a small server to "dick around on" with family/friends! I don't intend for it to be used in a full fledged "production environment" although if you (anyone) wanted to, feel free to do so! That being said, "security" wasn't a primary focus of this package (and it should be for a production environment), although it does of course include some pretty basic security... Speaking of which I have actually located a small potentially minor "security hole" in it, and that will be patched in this newest upcoming release/update on the official 10 year anniversary!

    All that being said, of course I wouldn't be too happy if someone/anyone else started sharing it elsewhere and tried to claim credit for it, like they put it together themselves, but I'm almost sure that's bound to happen too (and I may never even know it)! But nonetheless it's out there for people to pretty much do whatever they want with it!

    - - - Updated - - -

    But yea my goal isn't to have everything the most "up to date", but rather just striving for full functionality! Even if it means using outdated stuff, heck PW 131-155 itself, is, "outdated" !!!

    Yeah, I got you. But in some way I feel like working on with linux is a big steap to make when you doesn't know anything of servers and programming... But in the other hand I completly understands you. For instance, if you already had made a "perfectly package" (not judging or comparing nothing, btw, one more time, thanks for all) I couldn't learn a bunch of stuff that I learned in this "journey".I'll stay tune to your 10th year anniversary. I'm execited with it!
    And I'll think more about it, because, as I sad, for those who just want do play with your friends and do nothing about "code" etc (linux can scarry, lol). FOR ME feels like docker is all about it. Just do a docker-compose up, and your good to go. But I'll think more.
    Thanks for replying me, and thanks for your your package, changed my life, for real.
    God bless.

    Re: ¤ The Complete PW Package ¤

    I can understand Linux for someone who has never touched it could *certainly* be intimidating! Especially the Server version, since there's no GUI - and next to everyone RELIES on GUI now-a-days

    But for those cases, I would still offer my "services", for "hire" of course, to install and set up a small server for someone! To me, there's something wrong with anyone charging for these files, since NONE of "us" own them, PW does! But, if you offer a 'service' of installing and setting it up for someone (or even 'maintaining' one), those are "services" that are very valid of receiving payment / monetary compensation!

    Just like how I do offer this package for free, primarily because it contains and is /about/ something that's not mine (PW)... But at the same time I put a LOT of hard work, effort, and time into this - so, I will also gladly accept "tips"... Which BTW I HATE having that "donate" button and I hate that some people call it "donation" because it's LEGALLY (at least in the USA) NOT considered a "donation"... In order to be LEGALLY considered a "donation" you HAVE to be a NON PROFIT 501(C)... Technically, and LEGALLY - it has to be called/considered a "TIP" (which of course are LEGALLY required to be "reported" to the proper governmental agencies for taxation purposes of course (if you exceed a certain amount per year [I think it's $600 - if you make more than $600 / year doing something - you're "supposed" to report it])!!!

    That being said I think I'm going to go [DEL] my "donate" button right now, and come up with an alternative way for anyone who wants to, to "tip" me

    just for the record, from someone who DOES run some servers with GUI, it is doable, there are things you CAN do to maintain a gui version of a server. if you want that information, feel free to request it, I'll be happy to assist with that adventure

    Yes I "can" be done, but, just because something CAN be done; does NOT mean it SHOULD be done...

    Look at Windows Server (LOL two words that should never be used in the same sentence IMHO)!

    But, I do suppose if it gets someone ~ "to get their foot in the door" ~ then by all means! "Have at it"! Although, I do believe it's that kind of mind set that produces <cough> garbage </cough> like "Windows 'server'"... People just are TOO damn wrapped up in their UI, that even if they come into it with good intent (to eventually "get off" of the UI), UI does tend to make things more "simple"... But I don't care how simple it makes things, or how little resources it uses, which is my main gripe BTW, that UI literally WASTES resources that could be better spent (like on the server LOL)! So, maybe I'm too old school, but, I don't care how much resources you have (how "beefy" your machine is), or how little of resources any given UI "wastes"; ANY waste is still waste, IMHO!

    I would still recommend to do like I did, just dive in head first not knowing anything and ~ like NIKE said ~ JUST DO IT!!!

    "Hacking" ~ It's a MINDSET - NOT a SKILLSET

    PS> honestly, I would have NO clue how to set this up with UI! I would need your help too

    I agree with you, using terminal make things more clear (not simple some times), and Windows Server is something I don't get it...
    A server wich starts with already 5gb of ram.
    Windows it's self is a mess, Gates is more concern about "saving" mankind other than his own product. (NWO?)
    Feels like need somebody with some balls to cut x86 arch and cut data collection in win 10 to make it more usable...
    But in the other hand, normies needs it... Do you imagine your mom using Gopher?
    Democracy is the will of majority, it isn't about equality. Windows is that.
    Only thing that keeps me using it is for gaming....
