Default Serious File System

One year ago today, Serious Sam: The First Encounter went gold. We here at Seriously! thought it'd be cool to do something special for this occasion, and we are. I'm extremely happy to announce version 1.0 of the Serious File System which will be powering all the files on the site. I'd like to thank eDome, Fragland.net, FileFront, and Gamespy for being generous and offering us space on their servers to mirror our files to. Also, thanks goes to Mailman, RatBoy, Earthling, Vesto, Evangelion, and [dev]Mystic for helping me get the current files moved over, and Mailman for helping with the design/layout.

The main difference you'll notice at first compared with the old system is the layout. The categories are now displayed in a way similar to vBulletin, with the main SS:FE category first, followed by SS:SE, and then a General category. Each category has a file count and download count.

The next difference you'll notice when you go to download a file. Every file will have atleast four different download mirrors to allow you to get the files you want from the fastest location at all times. Some, such as Mailman's excellent Instagib SE mod, will have more.

Note that this is only the first release, and it may have bugs. If you find a bug, please post it in this thread. All comments and suggestions should go here

Happy Anniversary Sam and Croteam!

Is there any way to submit files to the server? I've got a complete Serious set of demos for First Encounter and a near-complete Serious set of demos for Second Encounter which I'd like to have hosted here. I've emailed several of you admin types about it and you always said "yes, send them here" but I've yet to see any of them appear on the site.

cheers,
Phil

Note that this is version 1.0. The "basics" are down, and once we make sure it's bug free we'll begin working on other things. For now, until it is more developed, everything will be done by the site staff. As we progress, we're going to be looking into different ways to allow you guys to submit your own files, as well as other things. Here's a little look at what's to come:
  • More fully featured back-end
  • Screenshot/Thumbnail gallery browsing - Will allow some categories to be specified as being screenshot galleries, where instead of a description there will be a thumnail shown instead. One place this will be used is for the wallpaper section.
  • Reporting of broken links
  • Submission of more links for files
  • Some sort of user file submission
  • Anything else I haven't mentioned, or that may be thought of/suggested in the future

Ah..yea, forgot to mention that. Once I get all of the current stuff working 100% and figure out how to tie it in with vBulletin's user DB with minimal server load, that'll be next


Thanks for the feedback guys, I'm really proud of this and am glad you guys like it also. Keep the suggestions and comments coming

Hey Rodzilla,

The new file system rocks. I note that you can sort the available downloads by the various columns by clicking on their headers (ex: clicking Author sorts by Author), but it will only sort them one way then (clicking Author sorts it by A-Z only). Is there a way to set it up so clicking the header again sorts them in reverse order?

Just an idea....

cheers,
Phil

I added the ability to change the sort order, but due to either a glitch in PHP or with GSI's servers(I'm going with the latter, since everything works fine on UTO), you can only switch from ascending -> descending but not back again automatically. To switch back, edit the URL and change sort=BLAH to sort=ASC or sort=DESC.

Please can we have a link to the file system from the forum pages, e.g. next to the forum index and chat links.

Also an indication of whether a map is single player or Deathmatch, theres no way of telling at the moment.

file system link from forum pages?
I think that's pretty useless.

They are, in a way, two separate things.
Plus this makes you visit planetserious.com

Angry can't d/l files

Ok, I have searched the net, fileplanet and all of those other sites just for a few downloads. I find them on here, but the mirrors aren't direct links to the files, and searching for the files are pointless. I am looking for the name editor. Something really simple, but can not be found anywhere. I think that someone needs to do something to make it so that it isn't so hard to get a simple file. If I had some mods or something, I would put them up on my own personal site (build one if I have to) so that people wouldn't have to go from point A to point B threw C D F G and the rest of the alphabet just to get fustrated and give up.

So if you have this file, can you let me know and possibly send it to me?

Thanks in advance

It's laid out in the best way possible. Maybe listing all the files on a single page would be better, as opposed to categories?

Step 1 - Load the Files Page
Step 2 - Click Tools, under SS:FE
Step 3 - Oh look, item number 2 is called "Name Editor v1.4". Maybe that's it?
Step 4 - Choose a mirror, all of which directly link to a download page for the file, the last two of which begin the download immediately.

suggestion:

pop this baby onto sourceforge and let other developers (like me) help you out

youd also give back to the open source community
