We would like to thank all of you who have joined the Armaholic Subscription system! Your support is very much appreciated.

We must admit that the amount of people, so far, willing to become a subscriber to help us provide a better service is really a huge suprise and once again we would like to thank you and we hope soon we will be able to serve you better.


Soon a new server?
As a first step we have decided to buy a new file server for all the subscribing members much earlier than we have promised to do as layed out on the Armaholic Subscription System info page (see goals).
Of course deciding to buy a new server early will have a few downsides, specially on hardware but the current amount of subscribers will allow us to buy a decent server with good enough specs to serve your needs. And, while you enjoy better performance we hope more and more people will join which will simply lead to us being able to add better hardware and better lines.


This does not mean we will buy the new server today, tomorrow or the day after but we for now we set the goal at 100+ subscribers!
Currently there are 69 subscribers.
You can track the total number of subscribers at the bottom of this page. And yes, you might wonder why I set the goal at 100 while there already are 125 subscribers listed there, well that is simply because I gave all donators we have had since 2006 6 months free as a thank you for their supportin the past years. The total amount of donators we have had is 65 since 2006 (yeah, not so many indeed, see for yourself) and also a few subscribers have not sent us their accountname so the numbers might not add up fully but I am on top of it with the database, excell sheets and paypal reports!


Any subscriber can use this entire forum section to ask questions and/or leave feedback about it.

The general public is able to read this forum section but is not able to post here!
Any non-subscriber can ask questions about the Armaholic Subscription system in this topic!

Thanks to all your support so far, I am sure once the new server is ordered, installed and activated you will enjoy your support :-)

We are currently talking with our server host about expanding the servers we rent with a new one.
This new serve will be the subscriber only file server which means we reached the goal of 100 subscribers.

It will take a few days of course to finalise the deal and set up the new server! We will update here and make an official announcement on the frontpage when the new subscriber only file server is up and running.


Our thanks go out to all subscribers!

I have just finalized the deal with our serverhost and ordered the new file server.
Once the order is processed and the server installed and activated for us to use we will need some time to configure it but once that is done all subscribers will download their file requests (using the main downloalinks) from their own server.

The new subscriber file server has been configured for the biggest part (we still need to adjust/set/tweak a few things).
Soon I will start to transfer a few TB of files to the new server so all the files are availbale to subscribers from there.

Hmmm, over 40 hours of file uploading directly from the public server to the new server (so full speed) .....
I think we are hosting a lot, really a lot of files. Thanks to all those mod makers, mission editors and scripters!
*OK*


Please standby for some longer. Setting things up is almost done, and of course we need to wait till all the files are there.

Added 6 hours 28 minutes later:

The file transfer has been done.
I am now performing the last few settings and than the server will be ready to serve your requests.
I am pretty sure (hoping) somewhere this evening (CET) the server will start hosting files for subscribers.

Added 6 hours 3 minutes later:

And like always.........at the end something goes wrong.

We have met an issue and after trying for the whole evening to fix it we have to call it a night now. So, sadly we cant release the subscriber server just yet.
Sorry for the delay!
