I have posted here because the Homefront forums are a mess lol, i am hoping kinsman will assist here ;)

I am a clan leader who runs a dedi box and i decided not to rent a Homefront server because we were told it would only be two weeks for server files! I got fed up of a couple of us going onto random dead servers and getting them populated so decided i would wait until we had one and put all our efforts into that! The problem is that we are having to wait with no news on a release date. This delay is going to kill the game for our clan before it gets off the ground!!

At the moment we are all geared up to have it as a clan supported game and i am sure we could make a popular server with plenty of regular clan players on it ...... if the files are released very soon, otherwise the game will just fail as i am sure there are quite a few clans out there waiting as we are. Homefront devs need to give us some news as the server file release will generate second wave sales but only if they do something very soon on the news or release front!!


What a shame as i love the game but wont play it unless we have our own clan server!

I am with the OP on this.

Pointless paying for a time played situation.

What we want is the ability to run our own server on our own dedi box.

If it doesn't happen soon it could well be the death of this game. If they were smart they would get the files out ASAP as it might breathe some life into what is looking like a dying game atm. There are many like us out there.

I can confirm that the intended server files are in place (Because I have been testing them) and ready for release along with the patch.

I think Kaos are only awaiting the final go from THQ..

I would expect them to be released this week barring any last minute problems.

So keep the faith..:D

The HomeFront forums are a mess to be honest and the community Manager Kaos-Chefs should be ashamed of himself for letting them become such a hateful cesspit.

They need to be cleaned out big time, as even simple requests are being met with just outright hostillity from users who are simply being allowed to post what they want seemingly unchecked.

Things can get colouful here at FPS but the mods soon step in to squash it and rightly so to be honest.

The HomeFront forums are not a nice place to visit at the moment. :mad:

Same here. Have a server running but finding some issues, well at least one with the -multihome switch... anyways, i'd say those files will be made available very soon.

The thing is, we are kept very well informed here at FPS !

All i have been doing is checking "new posts" tab here to see what the latest is wth Homefront .... going to the "official" forum is a nightmare and i am sorry to say it reflects on the game too. I bought another game "Breach" thiking it had something new but alas i didnt like it but going to their site showed me it was in disarray and put me off giving that game another go. I really do think that Homefront is a good game and with this update will get a good second round of sales but their forums needs to be cleaned up very soon!

I was hoping that Homefront would be a game our clan could play together. I have not played the game after the first week. Waiting for the non-patch, it was promised at the beginning of last week, still nothing. I'm not overly concerned about cheaters, good server admin can sort that out. it's the imbalance I have the biggest issue with.

As a clan admin how can I suggest this game to my clan? Right now I can't

Ditto m8, i made it a clan supported game thinking i would have a clan server in two weeks. As you know playing on your own server with clan m8s makes any game 10% better and attracts other clan members to join in and buy the game. I can't see any further sales to my clan members unless they pull their fingers out quickly.

Pen, What Clan are you with?

Perhaps after the patch we could try a freindly to see how it play in competition?

My Clan is ww.twbclan.com

Drop me a pm..

If the GSPs have the server files why can't we have them?

Just doesn't make sense and all bs in my books.

They have said right from start that the server files would be made public within 2 weeks of the game being released.

I'm not happy with false bs promises AGAIN!

And the word is you can forget about mod/map tools, it will never happen. They're too busy setting up their DLC. Well good luck with those sales after what we are experiencing.

RO2 can't come soon enough for my clan.

You want frustrated? here is frustrated. P



Kaos-Chefs last tweet on April 1st:

Definitely should not have eaten another Dunkin Donut.
Must have not digested it too well! Or did he get the boot in the sacking of 17 employees?

I am not blaming him, but KAOS Community Communications are lacking.

Ditto on the server files. We have two dedicated boxes for our league and we can't run the game unless we switch over to tc admin or some other console. The problem is we run other games from our boxes as well as other server applications... so going to a console is not an option.

If KAOS wants Homefront to have any longevity... with any sort of community online for it's game... they should consider giving us the tools we need to maintain such a community (especially since we were told they'd be released). Delaying the release of these files will be another nail in the coffin, (as if the hackers hadn't put enough nails in already).
