    Hi all,

     

    I need more financial support from our members if I am to keep this system up and running, I’m not in a position to fund all the services necessary to enable you all to play GRAW2 online together. On the 30th of December last year I added $100 AU (about 70 USA) to the pay pall account I use to fund this project and it’s  now standing at…     PayPal balance $38.86 Available.

    With the exception of,  Shorty, no one has contributed since 30th of December last year. I will continue to keep the master server up at my own expense but I will no longer fund the game servers.

    Thank you

    Hi John,

    I might be wrong, but before the website troubles the donation section at the bottom of the page was as I recall visible when NOT logged in.  Now its only visible when logged in (it fooled me for a while).  If members visit this forum, just for a quick look for comments/news (no need to log in), they will miss the donation section.  I asked some keyplayers to donate a while ago, but that did’nt happen as you noticed.

    Anyway, the last couple of month the spirit for playing GRAW2 was pretty low, so maybe its not a bad idea to shut down the GS servers when the funds are empty.

    Thanks for your efforts to keep GRAW2 going as long as possible.  I dont mind to look after the database server as long there are GRAW2 servers active.  For me it was a good ride…..

    Hi Nam,

    Correct, the donation system is only active when a user is logged in resulting from recent security issues, this was the best and simplest method to help protect users data and the website as a hole.

    On the subject of “security issues”, it’s been my experience [of late] that many developers are not even aware when their site has been compromised because many of the latest hacks don’t show up on scanners and plugins developed to detected them, be they local or remotely engaged.

    You may also be correct in assuming this project is coming to an end and I concur – it has been a good ride. If not for your devotion to the cause [keeping GRAW2 online & alive] we would not have come this far and once again I thank you for this.

    I will see what support I can muster up over the next month and post up the outcome, perhaps we need to arrange a “GRAW2 send off”?

    Hi John, hi Nam,
    Thanks also from me. I would be sad if GRAW2 came to an end. If, however, I should be the only donor, we’ll get it. Too bad.

    PS: It would be nice, if you would change my name to my nickname, please 🙂

    It might not come to a definite end.  NCH_PCR (Nicolas ?) once said that GRAW2 would be there forever.  So if the Gamerecon servers are no longer up but the database server will still be on line, there might be still a (1) GRAW2 server running.

    I cant moderate your name to your nickname, John has to do that.

    Hi Bernie, Nam,

    name changed to “Bernie” – let me know if that is the nic you are requesting?

    Nam – I have given you moderated privileges as I have less and less time to admin this forum, I know you didn’t request this but I see no point in not taking this measure when you have been so reliable and helpful with this site.

    For a while the donate tab was an issue, John informed me during the week that donations are needed, and finding it working again, I have just donated. This is about the only game where I have a few friends from not only South Africa playing, but Germany, Italy I think, and Aus as well. I will chat with the few guys here in SA that I know that are playing as well, to donate. Eventually, when SARS (our revenue services) decide to pay back my claim, I might donate enough to have the server running for a month or three, and that is a promise.

    Please, let’s try and keep this going.

    You guys rock!

     

    All I can say is what I’ve always said…

     

    THE CAMPAIGN MUST GO ON!  🙂

     

    I will keep the database online no matter what happens and continue to work on this site so it is safe and free of malware.

     

    Thanks to all

    Hi,

    we have run out of funds and I will need to shut down the game servers by 09/02/2019

    If anyone wants to takeover the game servers? They will need to establish an account at VirMach and I’ll see what can be done to transfer ownership of the game servers.

    That is all.

    Hi John, thank you for your engagement for us.

    I thought you would inform us, if money runs out. I would pay further.

    If there is an option to help, with money and administration – perhaps in coperation wit lowlander, please tell me.

    Shorty aka Cube

    PS: What are the monthly costs and on which platform the system runs?

    I’m getting sick of this, you all know it costs $38 USA every 3 months and the donation page was setup to reflect what funds were needed to cover us to the end of the year  (about $100 USA) and unfortunately we have received nothing at all!

    I put in 100 AU at the start of this year and as said, I can do no more. I think I have been more then generous, particularly given that I cant even play on the servers.

    The AU dollar is worth less then 70 in US dollars and falling so that is it for me with financial support for GRAW2.

    I am afraid that with only 2-3 paying players its no longer possible to keep the servers up. I stopped paying for this year (100 ASD in 2018) because the old donation plugin already showed that hardly nobody was willing to share the costs. The number of posts here, also indicates a lack of interrest.
    The well meant “revive project” by http://www.ghostrecon.org (site is gone) stopped i.m.o. for the same reasons.
    [PCR] also has stopped running its Coop/TDM servers.
    This all could not come as a surprise for you.

    This years the number active players (GRAW2+GRAW2 Rahnmans) has fallen to a record low, so it looks like 02 Sept 2019 is the end of the (good) ride.

    Thank for setting up the game+login servers, this website and the efforts to keep GRAW2 alive….
