Actually, I couldn't be much more pleased. We have a running server
(well, most of us ;-), and the game isn't even released yet. Well,
Razor1911 don't count.
As you guys might remember, it took about a quarter year, if not more,
AFTER the bf1942 release before we even had a server that was running...
So, my kudos goes to you for doing this job the way you did, and to DICE
for really having polished up their release strategy. BF:V is bound to
get off the ground much quicker than BF1942, server-wise.
As to the remote administration issue: Kevin Lockitt (who was
inappropriately named a whiney little *** by somebody who himself needs
to get a clue) was hired by DICE to do some contract work (I think) on
an administration software. He tried to sell BFRM to DICE, which was
refused. Consequently, Kevin announced he wouldn't support BF:V in his
remote manager, and another application seems to be bundled with the
release version of BF:V.
I currently don't see why a future version of BFRM couldn't support BF:V
as well, the coding effort is minimal. But being called a bitch doesn't
really increase his motivation - great community work InCisT.
Hope that clears it up a bit.
