Directions for uploading to koraxdev

Since several people on the team have problems accessing the koraxdev area with that crap called M$ IE (well I'd never even try using that for FTP myself), and downloading and installing an FTP client is sometimes too difficult, here a solution that works "out of the box" on most OSes of the last 5+ years incl. even such toys like Win98: 1) open a command shell/command prompt (might be called "MS-DOS prompt" in really stupid Winblows versions). Change to the directory on your local machine where the files you want to upload are located. 2) type following line the way it is here:
ftp orcishweb.com
3) this command-line ftp tool will connect and then prompt for username (<!-- e --><a href="mailto:koraxdev@orcishweb.com">koraxdev@orcishweb.com</a><!-- e -->) and password (********) 4) type in following command:
ls
This lists the content of the webroot of the host. You should see the same directories and files you can see with a browser at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://orcishweb.com/downloads/koraxdev/">http://orcishweb.com/downloads/koraxdev/</a><!-- m --> 5) to create a new directory, type
mkdir whatever
(where whatever is the name of the directory) 6) to change into a directory, use the cd command (e.g. cd whatever). To get up one level in the directory tree, use the cdup command. (update: at least some of the Winblows versions use the cd .. command in the FTP tool) 7) Before transferring files, make sure you use binary transfer mode. Type this command to do that:
bin laden
8) upload files with the put command, like this:
put map.zip
(Note: you can also download files from the server with the get command.) 9) to delete a file from the server, use the dele command:
dele map.zip
10) to shut down the FTP connection, type following:
bye motherfucker
You should now be back to the command prompt (which you can close with the exit command). Any questions/probs regarding this, just post them here.

I finished step 2 successfully, but I'm not being prompted for the username or the password. Instead, it keeps informing me that I'm not connected. <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

You use WinME, right? Either that or your AOL connection is an even bigger bullshit than I'd have thought. <!-- s:x --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mad.gif" alt=":x" title="Mad" /><!-- s:x --> This means you should use an FTP client - you can get one at <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cuteftp.com">http://www.cuteftp.com</a><!-- w --> which is cool, but it'll work only for 30 days. There are also others that have unlimited free use, by the time your CuteFTP expires I'll get a link to such a one for you. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

And I'm now using FileZilla, and it seems to be reasonably good so far.

I've edited the first post on this topic to reflect the latest changes. Note that the URL changed (I created an auto redirect from the old to the new one, so browser requests should be fine). This is part of a reorganization of downloads on the server, what concerns you is that now I can give the team FTP access to the public korax download area too to upload files (like in the case when Moose did a glitch in a KMOD distro and he had to wait for me to correct the download file). You can just follow the above steps to log in and upload/download files too, the only difference is that the word "koraxdev" is to be replaced by "korax", both in the username and in the URL. Keep in mind though that this is an official public area and as such released files shouldn't be deleted and only files should be uploaded that are meant for the public (besides correcting glitches like in January, I primarily mean things like uploading all those missing source codes of released KMOD 1.x and 2.x versions that are still missing, far as I know they are scattered among Janis, Camper and Moose).

Once I get my FTP client working again I'll upload the KMod2.8 sourcecode and a KMod2.x config for WadAuthor. KMod2.5-2.7 sourcecodes might not actually exsist anymore, sorry.

And what's up with the 2.8 binaries?

I'm just sorting a few bugs, it'll hopefully be with you in an hour.

Is it possible to use some other protocol, not FTP, to connect to downloads.orcishweb.com? I have ADSL and it connects using proxy server which makes impossible to use FTP. (That's why I had to use SVN instead of CVS to edit KA source)

None I know of.

Just out of curiosity, how much juice can KDev hold? <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Well, I succeed to connect, but it stalls when I try to download things. Other thing is I can't find the weapon HUD graphic in Korax Arena/mod WADs, which is weird. Can you tell me in what file there are Weapon HUD and Korax Arena graphics? Maybe XWE just doesn't display them?

Maybe XWE just doesn't display them? Myabe you're looking in the wrong place? KA last version uses 2 places to get data from - Hexen.wad for original data and karena/*.pk3 files. Graphics are stored in sprites.pk3 and graphics.pk3.

By how can I view those lmp files inside pk3? Do I need to extract them, or can I open them in XWE somehow?

Yup, XWE can open PK3 files without any problem.

What happened to orcishweb ftp? I can connect to it, but it fails to load root folder contents.
Mon, 29 Jan 2007 15:49:32

RambOrc

you can't connect to root, only to the koraxdev subdir
Mon, 29 Jan 2007 16:46:12

Crimson Wizard

Well, maybe I said wrong thing there. In fact it does not read kdev contents. Maybe I missed something about kdev that was changed recently? I may only browse it though korax-heritage.com/admin/ link.

I can connect to the FTP correctly, but it doesn't shows any contents of KDev <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc10.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> .

For some reason I can't connect to server using these instructions anymore. I did that using FileZilla a while ago, now it shows following error:
Connection attempt failed with "EAI_NONAME - Neither nodename nor servname provided, or not known".
Do I miss something?

Updated the hostname, try now.
